1. Let go of any stress related to the issue, or other issues, that you notice and are willing to release now. This will greatly clear up your mind and allow you to more easily locate solutions. Often, just a little release can bring in powerful insights. The space created by letting go can give your inner wisdom more freedom to flow.
2. Ask yourself more empowering questions. Tony Robbins offers a brilliant tool in his book, Awaken The Giant Within. He suggests that by asking questions that are designed to bring about powerful solutions, you can more likely find that insight that can turn around your situation.
3. Set an intention and then let go of attachment to the “how”. Brandon Gilbert, of Hyperion Nutrition, suggests this interesting technique in this video. He even suggests going to do something completely unrelated to the goal after you set the intention, essentially forgetting about it for a little, allowing your mind to more freely generate innovative ideas. In essence, the key would be to get clear about what you want or what solution you are after, feel what you would feel like to actually obtain it, and then release yourself from it and get into a more relaxed or inspired state of mind in whatever way works for you. From there, you might receive new insights out of nowhere related to your intention. Author Joe Vitale, who was in The Secret, also suggests a similar notion that by making an intention and then being open to the how unfolding naturally, you’ll likely be guided by intuition. The key, in both of these ideas, though somewhat different in their wording, is that having an intention can bring about powerful ideas of innovation if we can just step aside and get somewhat out of the way for a little. This does not mean not to take inspired action, but instead to allow for inspiration to take hold rather than constantly focusing on the “how”.
4. Take tonic herbs and foods that uplift and inspire you. Whichever they are, find the one’s that promote vitality in you and help to you reach new heights of wellbeing. This can help you to stay more “in the moment” and less attached to you the “how” part of your goals.
