Harnessing the Power of Your Subconscious Mind
Updated: Jan 11, 2021
When I look back on 2020, the heartbreak and tragedy of lives lost and turned upside down aside; it will be the innovation that I remember. It will be the creativity, resilience, and strength shown by countless companies and individuals who, despite everything, made the circumstances work for them & their clients. It will be the companies who used the uncertainty brought about by the pandemic to get creative, think outside of the box, and put their skills and products to work. Helping thousands and making progress that could have taken decades in the process.
It strikes me that those who survived the year showed the most powerful of skillsets in abundance; the ability to innovate and to adapt.
So how do we innovate? When our back is firmly against the wall, how do we encourage those magical lightbulb moments to clear the path ahead?
We do it through creating space. We create space to think, distraction free, and we brainstorm without judgment. We allow exploration without boundaries.
As Einstein once said: "I cannot teach you anything, but I can make you think". And thought, as we know, is the platform for action & growth.
The problem we have is that when our thinking capacity is clouded with a fog of stress and worry, nothing is getting through. And that bright path ahead, stays a dimly lit stumble in the dark.
Apple, Google, Nike, Yahoo! Deutsche Bank & HBO are just a few of the biggest companies who understand this and who actively create space, during working hours, to encourage employee meditation. Why? Because it promotes mental wellbeing, is a key tool in managing stress, and because it opens up the space needed to encourage innovation and creative thinking.
“Anyone doing creative work has experienced the power of these awesome mind layers. Unlike doing something basic and mundane like arithmetic (conscious-thought), getting fully immersed or "in the zone" while you are drawing, painting, writing, idea generating, creating etc requires the conscious "ego" mind to take a backseat, allowing the super-creative deep mind to surface” EOC Institute
Now i’m not suggesting that every bright idea, innovation and action taken came from a meditation practice, but I am telling you that if you’re looking for a place to start, you wouldn’t go far wrong.
