It’s an amazing feeling to know the process of ‘how to get the answer to any of life’s problems.’ For this, we need to understand the problem clearly and then ask precise questions to our mind (subconscious mind). By its virtue, it will provide you the desired solution.
Your subconscious mind is not only responsible for the automated processes of your body, but also for the thoughts that you think and the beliefs that you carry deep within you. Your subconscious mind appears to act as a conduit to universal wisdom. It is a connecting link to unlimited wisdom that all human beings can access — when they know-how.
The below insightful excerpt is from ‘The Most Powerful Goal Achievement System in the World by Mike Pettigrew.
Napoleon Hill shared in Think and Grow Rich:
“There is plenty of evidence to support the belief that the subconscious mind is the connecting link between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence. It is the intermediary through which one may draw upon the forces of Infinite Intelligence at will. It, alone, contains the secret process by which mental impulses are modified and changed into their spiritual equivalent. It, alone, is the medium through which prayer may be transmitted to the source capable of answering prayer.”
There are numerous effective ways of connecting to this universal wisdom that lies deep in the mind of every human being. Let’s understand how to connect with your inner wisdom and creativity, and use it to get answers to any problem, and also to enrich your life.
How Scientists & Inventors Do this!
Many of the world’s greatest scientists and inventors have been aware of this capability to get the answers to any problem, and they have used it to bring into the world amazing new technologies, inventions, and scientific discoveries. A famous example of this was Thomas Edison, who used to take catnaps whenever he was stumped by a technical problem that he couldn’t figure out with his conscious mind. Edison was the inventor of the incandescent light bulb, and many other inventions we use to this day, and whenever he was facing a problem to which he could not find a solution, he used to take a short nap for 30 to 60 minutes.
Before falling asleep, he would firmly plant into his mind the problem he needed a solution to, while fully expecting an answer to that problem. On awakening, he would often have the exact solution that he needed to solve his problem. It’s almost like his subconscious mind would download into his conscious mind the solution that he needed.
How Can You Do this!
You too can use the exact same technique, and you may be very surprised by the deep wisdom that you can access within your own mind.
The writer shared his own experience of how he got the answers to a serious business problem. You can see how easy it is to access this wisdom and find solutions to any difficulties you may be facing in life.
A few years ago, I was facing a potentially serious business problem and I tried to figure out a solution to it in every way imaginable. I even hired experts to find a workable solution to the situation. If no solution were possible, then it would mean that I would lose hundreds of dollars each day. It was a pretty serious issue and I really needed to find a resolution as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, neither of the two experts that I hired were able to find a workable way forwards, and I was deeply concerned because our loss of profits was becoming quite a serious issue. I know it sounds crazy, but it took me some time before I remembered to hand this problem over to my own mind to find a solution.
Eventually, I remembered what Thomas Edison used to do when confronted with similar issues. So one night before falling asleep, I focused on the problem and asked my inner wisdom to give me a solution upon awakening. I also worked myself into a state of truly believing that I would receive a solution to the problem the very next morning. I then fell asleep only to awaken 30 minutes later. Amazingly, in my mind was the exact solution that I needed. It was literally downloaded into my mind as I woke up.
The next day, I contacted the experts I had hired and asked them whether the solution I had “discovered” would work and was safe to move forwards with. I was delighted to find that I had found a completely workable solution to the problem that the two independent experts themselves had never even considered. And it was a solution that would benefit my business in several other ways that I couldn’t even have imagined.
Find Answers While You Sleep
The next time you are stumped by a problem that you can’t seem to find a solution for, try this simple exercise.
Step 1: Think about the problem for a few minutes and how important it is that you find a solution to it fast.
Step 2: Tell yourself that you need a solution to the problem, and firmly state that you expect your inner genius to give you a solution upon awakening.
Step 3: Next, clearly visualize yourself wakening up the next morning, very excited that you now have a perfect solution to the problem.
Step 4: Finally, put any thoughts about the problem to one side and go to sleep.
Step 5: Your solution may present itself to you on awakening, or over the next few days in ways, you may not have expected. If necessary, repeat this process until you discover a solution.
The important thing here is to be crystal clear on what you want and to expect an answer. It’s almost like you need to work up a feeling of total trust, or faith that you will receive a solution to your problem. Your subconscious mind can present the solution to you in various ways – your answer could come upon awakening, or sometime over the next few days.
Make sure you test this technique for yourself the next time you face a big problem where you just can’t seem to find any solution.
