Dream on – your success could depend on it!
In Step One of this tutorial, I explained how scientific human brain research proved we think in six areas simultaneously; only one is conscious and the other five are non-conscious.

Why not take advantage of the other 5/6ths of your brain while you are sleeping?
Think of your dreams as a form of “brain storming”.
The subconscious mind will continue to dream on while you are sleeping and tirelessly work away at solving your problems.
Research indicates that whatever we were focusing on just before going to bed is usually what your subconscious will “think” about.
For example if you watch the late news before bed, it is full of negativity such as war, murder, various other “crimes” and celebrity gossip. This is what your subconscious will think about.
I don’t know about you, but I prefer to have my subconscious dream on positive, self-improvement concepts while I’m asleep.
The beauty of focusing your attention on positive outcomes provides the environment for your subconscious to also focus on these desired outcomes – without any resistance or further input from your sleeping conscious mind.
There are two productive techniques you can apply before bed.
The first is to review and visualize your goals in detail. This flags your goals as important and your subconscious will work on solutions to achieving your goals during the sleep cycle.
The second technique is to ask your subconscious a specific, detailed question you would like answered while you are asleep; such as an idea or solution to a problem you are experiencing.
Write the question out in detail in a dream log or note book, repeat the request verbally and tell your subconscious you would like an answer at a specific time – such as when you awake, by 5 p.m. the next day, or whatever other time frame you prefer.
Please, make sure you direct your subconscious to provide the answer when you are awake; otherwise the subconscious will wake you up in the middle of the night with the answer.
You will be pleasantly surprised when you start waking up with answers or ideas.
When using this technique, I have found asking your subconscious one specific question (as opposed to many) works best.
When you get these answers, remember you have a short term memory store, so write them down! Then you can process the information when it is convenient.
Simple – but effective!
Try it! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
