Let Your Inner Employee Work for You


Are you stumped with a problem? Have you run it around in your mind over and over and the solution keeps evading you?  Maybe it’s time for something different.  Join me in the magical world of creation and give this technique a try.  (I promise it will be worth it.)

What would this entail?  It’s relatively simple. 

  1. Know what you want. 
  2. Give your “inner employee” clear directions. 
  3. Be kind. 
  4. Expect it to be done. 
  5. Unplug from the problem.
  6. Be grateful for the answer/solution.
  7. Take inspired action.

Think of the solution and not the problem.  After all, what you focus on is what you get. What will the solution feel like?  What will you feel like when you have the solution and it is implemented? This will allow you to get a clear idea of what you’d like.  Yes, the idea will not be the solution.  Instead it will be what you are hoping to attain by having the solution.

Next, treat you inner mind as an employee. Give it clear directions.  Kindly say something like, ““You are fabulous and you can do anything. Bring me a clear solution to this problem that will benefit everyone involved. I know that this will work out.” Steps one, two and three are done.

The next step is vital.  Don’t micromanage the employee.  Let your inner employee do his/her work. After all, you know that he’s a great employee and you can trust that the job will be done.  Think of it this way, the solution is in the “library” of the greater imagination.  You are asking your employee to go to the library and find the books or information that will help you.  If you are insisting on going to the library, why should the employee?

If you can’t trust your employee, which is your inner self tapping into all the available knowledge and solutions that even you don’t know about, then gaining a stronger sense of trust may be the first thing to ask for.

Steps five and six can be done together.  Relax and be grateful.  Know that the solution is coming, and you don’t have to stress over it.  This is the time to meditate, sleep, take a shower, exercise, or in some other way unplug from the problem.  While you are doing so, be pre-grateful.  This means that you are grateful for what will happen as if it already did.

Imagine thanking the employee for a job well done.  Imagine everyone involved thanking you for the brilliant solution.  Quickly, you will move from the thoughts to the feeling, and this is where you are supercharging your employee.  He can already feel the gratitude and feels all warm and fuzzy from your praise. (To supercharge the process, be grateful before you even do step one.)

At the beginning of step seven, the solution will “pop in” to your awareness.  It may be as fast as when you are done meditating, or it may take a bit of time.  It may be fully formed and actionable, or it may be only the next step that will lead you to the solution.  Either way, this is the time when you take the inspired action.  Do something.  You know the direction you are going (after all, your employee is leading you), take inspired actions toward accomplishing the solution. 

Do what is presented to you as the next step you need to do.  This is where you do something even if it doesn’t seem to make sense.  It will have a feeling that matches the feelings you have been imagining around the solution.

Your employee works with the library of greater imagination to help you. She/he is ready, willing, and able to do so.  Are you willing to let it happen?
