4 Subconscious Mind Power Exercises to Unlock Hidden Creativity

4 Subconscious Mind Power Exercises to Unlock Hidden Creativity

How much of your brain power are you using? 

Most people only use 10 percent of their conscious minds, and the subconscious controls the other 90 percent. 

With a little effort, you can tap into all that unlimited potential. The subconscious mind is like the junk drawer of the conscious mind. 

Everything gets thrown in, mixed up and will probably surface when you least expect it. However, there are some easy exercises that can help you find the creativity hidden beneath the random thoughts. 

Because it exists beyond the constraints of the physical world, the subconscious mind can break all the usual rules and doesn’t have to conform to limits. 

There is an unlimited quality to its nature, and it can prompt you to be innovative. Try these exercises when you feel stuck and uninspired or need to shake things up a bit. 

They are perfect for setting intentions and working toward a goal or for getting creative ideas when the logical mind has struck out. 

1. Stream of Consciousness 


Something amazing happens when you put pen to paper. When using this technique, it is important to just let your thoughts flow without concern for grammar, spelling, being coherent or whatever. 

Take some pressure off and let your subconscious rise to the surface. Turn off distractions. Sit comfortably. Set a timer for five minutes. Write without stopping until time is up. 

Even if you “can’t think of anything to write” or “don’t think this is fun,” just write that and keep going. No one will see this anyway, so who cares?
You may be tempted you to use a computer or other device for this one, but there is a subtle expression that a keyboard can’t replicate. 

The act of handwriting often has the power to bust through a mental road block and can unleash hidden thoughts and feelings. 

2. Doodle It


When you’re feeling confused about a problem, get a pen and paper and start drawing. You need nothing special; a crayon and an old envelope will do. 

Just get it out of your head and down on paper, a whiteboard or even a pavement. You can try to sketch out the elements of the issue you want to resolve. Putting it on paper allows you to see the situation more objectively. 

Plus, you can stop thinking about it over and over because you can pin your thoughts down for a moment. Let your thoughts and emotions flow effortlessly and without judgment. 

Draw furiously and slash the page with a big marker, or use swirling motions and a delicate calligraphy pen if that helps you express yourself. 

Just draw something. Continue doodling for five to 10 minutes; then set it aside for a moment. 

Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Then open your eyes and objectively look at your drawing. 

What comes to mind? Has it revealed a pattern, theme or energy? 

Keep your doodle where you can see it as you work. Let it speak to you and guide you with its special message. 

3. Subtle Perception 


When your creative juices are running low and you feel you’re getting nowhere, it’s a good sign that you need to take a break. 

Let your linear rational mind rest and give your subconscious a chance to show you the solution. 

Taking regular breaks is important for the creative process, and the human brain is most productive in 90-minute cycles. 

Set a timer to remind yourself that it’s break time and intend to come back to work in a 15-30-minute period. 

Be sure to change your surroundings when taking a break. Stepping outside for some fresh air is an easy way to reset your creativity. 

Take a few deeps breaths, feel the sun/rain/snow on your face and just be for a moment. Take a quick walk around the block or do some light stretching. 

Maybe you need to get a snack and drink some water. Don’t feel guilty or like you’re wasting time. Breaks will recharge your body, so that you can do more work. 

Sometimes a mundane task can also unlock the flow of ideas. Switch from intense work to something less demanding and keep your focus on the task at hand. 

When your conscious mind is occupied, you’ll be more receptive to the subtle messages of the subconscious. You’ll return to work feeling energised and inspired when you take a few small breaks throughout the day. 

Besides more creativity and problem-solving ability, your efficiency and accuracy will increase and so will your job performance. 

4. Bedtime Intentions 


Setting an intention before you go to bed can be a powerful tool to program the subconscious. When you sleep, the conscious mind no longer runs the show, but the subconscious is in control all night long. 

Because the subconscious mind does not operate under the restrictions of the physical world, there are no limits to what is possible. 

You can be open to creative solutions and ideas and intend that they will emerge when you’re awake. Take five minutes before bedtime to write a question or goal. 

Be clear and specific about what you need and then release it to the subconscious. Intend that you will wake rested and centred and ready to receive information or inspiration. 

Get up the next morning and spend a few minutes reflecting on the night’s sleep. Did you dream? If so, write it down with as much detail as possible. 

There may be a special message in it, or you’ll get a gut feeling about what to do. The information may not be readily available the moment you wake up. 

Be open and mindful for subtle clues from your subconscious during the day. You may experience it as a knowing or a feeling, so trust your emotions and hunches. 

Often the subconscious reveals its secrets to us when we’re relaxed. 

These exercises require the conscious mind to take a backseat, allowing the subconscious to speak to us. I encourage you to try these exercises and watch what happens.
