My Secret Weapon in Bed — Try it Out

I do this most nights & its truly mind blowing!

I’m about to share with you a simple but highly effective technique that I stumbled upon that works best just before you doze off to sleep and sorry to disappoint but its not sexual. Although you can probably use it to assist you with your sex life. Its not meditation or anything spiritual. Rather its a powerful psychological technique which many influential people throughout history have used prior to sleeping — Carl Jung, William James, Benjamin Franklin, Mark Twain, Robert Louis Stevenson just to name a few.

Forget the Kamasutra for now, this technique allows you to access your subconscious mind (part of your mind that runs all programming & stores all memories and beliefs) through a simple question that you ask it prior to sleeping ( you must be in bed starting to feel sleepy) to get answers to a problem/issue your facing in your life.

Please feel free to reword/fine-tweak it more to your liking, but generally I ask one of these: ( Just focus on one issue/problem to get best results)

Subconscious mind please show me what it is I need to know/do about X?

I ask you subconscious mind to show me in my sleep what it is I need to know/do about X?

What happens from here is nothing short of a miracle I have found. Your subconscious mind never sleeps and is working in the background 24 hours a day. It will come up with an answer to your issue/problem. It could come in a dream or as a hunch/feeling upon first waking up or even later during your day. Please be patient if it doesn't work immediately. Just try it a few times. It’s generally a fairly quick process unlike so many other things in life. Don’t dismiss it as some mumbo jumbo nonsense. This stuff works! Be open and receptive. Don’t force an answer to appear. It will come!

Your subconscious mind is most susceptible to suggestion just before going to sleep (hence why you should be in bed) and upon first waking up in the morning. Your conscious mind sleeps, but your subconscious doesn't, so when a question is posed to it, it gets to work in finding an answer. Your subconscious mind works at a much deeper level than your conscious mind. I think its fair to say that science still hasn't unravelled all of its mysteries.

You’re no doubt heard the term ‘subconscious mind’, but are you actually aware of what it does and the powerful role it plays in your life? Most people are not and its a shame as so much unbelievable power resides in the subconscious mind. Its a gold mine! If you learn to harness and use it the right way it will change your life for the better. To find out more about the power of your subconscious mind, I highly recommend you read Joseph Murray’s classic The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind. One of the best books on the subject.

“ Your subconscious mind is all-wise and knows the answers to all questions” Joseph Murray

Aside from my own experience of using this technique to get answers to problems I am struggling with, here are some examples of famous people that have used this technique:

  • Scientists like Fredrich von Stradonitz, Dr. Frederick Banting and Nikola Tesla have all turned their problem in regard to their work to their subconscious mind prior to sleep.
  • Robert Louis Stevenson claimed that a whole chapter of his book Across the Plains came to him in his sleep after he turned over his problem (being stuck for inspiration) to his subconscious mind.
  • Mark Twain claimed that many of his plots and stories came to him during sleep after asking his subconscious ‘to figure it out’.

There are many other examples I could share with you here, but I just thought that the above list is sufficient for this piece. Just like with all my posts, I highly encourage my readers to try out things for themselves, not simply believe what I have said.

I will leave you with this food for thought- Your subconscious has a mind of its own and by turning over your problems to it, you will find you have an invisible but powerful ally that will help and guide you through life. You don’t need a psychologist or psychiatrist to access this power or any special skills. Its available to you right now 365 days.

Please keep safe, sane and sanitised!
