26 Easy Things You Can Do to Get the Answers You’re Searching For

Dr. Christine Bradstreet


Hint: Get Out of Your Head

In an earlier post here on News Break, I wrote about the power of stillness and knowing that your ideas will unfold in perfect timing. You can read that article here: Stillness Is Your Secret Weapon.

In that article I talk about the importance of, at times, stepping away from the task at hand. Sometimes you need to take your foot off the gas to make the next step forward.

The more you hunt down the answers you're looking for, the more they elude you.

The key is to let them come to you.

“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.” — William S Burroughs

Get your body moving. Laugh. Be grateful.

The answers are there. The more you let go, the more easily they come to you. Trust that there’s a wisdom far above and beyond what our human thinking can force. It will come to you.

Meanwhile, here’s a list of things you can do to allow your answers and inspiration to come to you rather than you chasing them down.

  1. Go for a walk
  2. Do some yoga
  3. Get a massage
  4. Take a shower
  5. Pray/meditate
  6. Take a bike ride
  7. Fold the laundry
  8. Take a power nap
  9. Re-read your goals
  10. Swing on a swing set
  11. Play with the dog/cat
  12. Go to a park or garden
  13. Empty the kitchen sink
  14. Do some jumping jacks
  15. Color in a coloring book
  16. Make a batch of cookies
  17. Free-write in your journal
  18. Take some creative photos
  19. Close your eyes and listen to music
  20. Drive your car down a country road
  21. Clean out a cluttered closet/drawer/desk
  22. Do 5 minutes of deep breathing exercises
  23. Daydream about reaching your ultimate goal
  24. Sip a cup of tea with no electronic distractions
  25. Remind yourself how far you’ve come in the past year
  26. Make a list of everything that’s going right in your life

You don't have to struggle to find your answers.

Nature makes way for the new by releasing the old. Nature doesn't struggle to let go of what she no longer needs and you don't have to either.

Every fall, the trees shed their leaves as they cycle toward new growth. The trees don’t try to hang on to the old leaves they don’t need anymore. They don’t fight the process. Those leaves served their purpose, now it’s time for them to move on.

The trees are guided by Universal Intelligence, and they don’t fight it. And the result of not fighting it? Everything works out harmoniously. New leaves appear in the spring to nourish the tree. Then late in the next year, they’ll take their turn falling off as well.

Universal Intelligence governs you too.

It’s there to run the show if you only let it. The funny thing is, it will ultimately run the show even though you try to fight it.

Get in tune with Universal Intelligence. It functions as your inner wisdom. It’s flowing from above. It’s the small voice inside you. Learn from nature. You don’t have to struggle to let go either.

When you get out of your head and take some of the actions on your list above, you allow your inner wisdom to reveal your answers to you. Your next steps will suddenly appear. Things that felt confusing will make more sense. Doorways will open.

When your brain is churning on problems over and over, you can't hear your inner voice. That's the beauty of mindfulness activities. They give your chattering human mind permission to stand down. You get "in the zone". In that calm and peaceful state, there is no struggle, and the answers appear.
