Let me tell you about a small problem I recently solved using a technique I'm going to show you.
Last night, I went into my office to grab my Kindle to look up a detail in a book there.
The Kindle wasn't where I normally keep it, so I started looking everywhere for it.
It wasn't on any of my shelves, nor was it in any of my camera bags, boxes of stuff, the rest of the house, my car, or anywhere else I looked.
I started wondering if I had took it somewhere and forgot to bring it home.
Eventually, I sat down, calmed myself, and focused my mind on "manifesting" the return of my Kindle.
I imagined it in my hands, and as I did this, I instructed my inner mind to give me a clear memory of the last time I used it and where I could find it again.
Since this was late at night, I went to bed soon afterwards.
This morning, I woke up with the clear memory I had asked for, including an image of a small bag I had NOT looked in during my search.
I got up, checked the bag, and there it was.
There are several important points to notice in this example.
First, when I realized I wasn't finding what I was looking for, I stopped, relaxed into myself, and focused on manifesting the desired result.
If I didn't do anything else, this would have been enough to move me in the direction I needed to go to solve my problem.
But I didn't stop there.
I also gave clear and direct instructions to my inner self.
If you prefer to pray to another Divine Being that's perfectly okay too. (Just to be clear, I'm referring to the fact that YOU are also a Divine Being.)
As long as you're clear about what you want and you believe you can get an answer, direct your questions / instructions wherever you want.
The next point to notice is that I released the whole idea and gave my inner self time to produce the desired result.
Another point to notice is that the answer came to me right after waking up.
Sometimes I think I should be taking a dozen naps during the day, because the best ideas often come to me right after waking up.
And finally, when I got what felt to be the right answer, I took action on it.
The basic idea here works for a lot more than just finding missing items.
You can also use it to get guidance as to the best course of action.
As an example, when I sat down to write this post, my conscious mind had a little difficulty finding the best way to introduce the topic.
After 3 or 4 false starts, I decided to use a similar process to solve this problem as well.
In this case, all I had to do was to relax, direct my focus inward, and ask for guidance as to the best way to structure my message.
The answer was quick and (I believe) correct.
Start with a story about how I used the principle.
Now, I will say that I've used this process many times before, so I am most likely getting quicker and better results than someone just starting out.
The first few times you do this, you may have to relax into a deep alpha / light theta state of mind, and then go through a process of "meeting" your deeper Divine Self before asking for help.
You may also need to specifically elicit positive emotions so you can make a stronger connection with the Divine Spark that is your true self.
And above all else, you definitely need to trust that you will get solid, workable answers.
Give this a try the next time you need help solving a problem.
Even if it takes you 5 or 10 minutes, it's time well spent, and you'll probably find that you get better answers than you could with conscious-mind thinking.
I know I do.
I'll continue this discussion in my next post.
For now, know that you have all the information you need within your grasp.
Until next time, be blessed, my friend.
