Your subconscious is much more powerful than you may realize. It remembers everything and it can make quick judgments based on millions of experiences.. It’s a super computer right in your head. The only problem is that it can’t be accessed in normal ways. It tells you things in dreams and fragments and feelings. However, I have discovered a specific trick that helps access the subconscious.
Let’s say you are trying to remember the name of a particular actress in a movie you saw long ago. It’s right there, on the tip of your tongue, but you can’t remember it exactly. It’s…It’s…Argh!
Here is what you do:
- Go through the alphabet and pretend that her first or last name starts with that letter.
- A – Ahhhhh, B- Bbbbb.
- Give each letter about 3-5 seconds.
- Eventually you will get to a letter and N – Nnnnnn NICOLE KIDMAN!
Your brain likes games and it loves associations. Playing this little game gives your subconscious a way of shining through. It has the information, you just need to give it a way to say it.
Next time you want to brainstorm a particular name for a product, or remember the company name of that guy, or remember the name of the restaurant, or a song, or book, or whatever….Just go through the alphabet and see if your hidden brain will help you out.
UPDATE: Apparently, the “alphabet trick” is also a sexual technique. I didn’t realize they called it that. Anyway, Google can’t tell the difference and ranked me third on the list for that query. Welcome Porn people. The stats for this page have skyrocketed.
