Your subconscious mind can help you in solving problems.

Human mind has two levels of function, conscious and subconscious. An average person mostly uses the conscious mind, without realizing the possibility of leading a much better life by optimizing the use of subconscious mind. The advancements of the field of Neuro Linguistic Programming [NLP] have revealed many ways of using subconscious mind to improve the quality of life. Let’s discuss how you could use your subconscious mind to solve tough problems easier. It is recommended that you try each of the three different ways that are discussed here, preferably one method at a time for three months continuously, until you find what works for you best.

First, think of a problem that has been nagging you for a while. Write down the problem on a piece of paper in as much detail as possible including when and how it started, how it has affected you, what you have already done about that, etc. Then write a question as if to ask what you should to solve this problem. Phrase the question in a positive manner. For example, instead of writing ‘Why can’t I achieve any success in my career?’ put it in like this. ‘What do I have to do to be successful in my career?’ Then throw the paper away and get on with your work. An inspiration will occur, hinting you about how to approach the problem, when you least expect it. It’s your subconscious mind that gives you the inspiration. It happens when you are relaxed and calm. It may also come in a dream when you are asleep. So, always keep a pen and a paper close to where you sleep so that you can write it down just as you wake up. It is also possible that your problem will get solved due to a coincidence. The solution comes in those same ways for the other two methods too.

The next method is go to a quiet place and think of the problem for a while, covering every angle of it, like you did when writing about the problem in first method. Then just brush it aside from your mind and go on with your day-to-day work.

The third technique is to discuss the problem with a few people who are in some way affected by it or simply care for you. Try to cover every angle as in other methods, and then just leave it behind and go about doing your other work, until the subconscious mind guides you towards the solution as mentioned with the first method.

You must work on only one problem at a time and try only one method at a time. If a particular method doesn’t work for you within three months, go for another. You get best results if you don’t suspect whether these methods will work. The power of subconscious mind is surprisingly great.
