When there is a complicated problem, think deeply but without worry. Let your mind explore all possible rationale solutions.

Even after careful weighing and analysis, if you are not sure which of the available alternatives to pick up, leave the problem to your mind and concentrate on other things in life.

In many cases your subconscious comes out with some amazing solutions. The subconscious is not under our dynamic conscious control. This is a problem as well as a blessing.

Problem, because you cannot extract an answer from it by your will. You can only make an appeal and wait for its response.

Blessing, because, since it is not under your control, it thinks in the most innovative ways, unlimited and uninhibited by your conditioned thinking.

Ways to Solve Problems

Logical or Analytical Approach: Think, analyze, weigh the option and decide the best course of action.

Creative approach: Brainstorm, think creatively, compare and contrast and look for unusual or hidden patterns. Give freedom to your mind. Be imaginative. Suspend your judgment and critical analysis till you have enough output from your own creative process. Then take a wise and intelligent decision.

Intuitive approach: Trust your inner wisdom. As your higher self for guidance and solutions. Keep your mind in a state of relaxedness and sense of assurance that you will ultimately find a solution or you have already set the process in motion. While your subconscious is busy doing its work, divert your attention to other matters. Do not be disappointed if you don't get a solution or answer. You subconscious acts quiet mysteriously and sometimes its silence has its own meaning that is not known to your ordinary mind.

Master Mind approach: Seek the help of friends and well wishers, experts and knowledgeable people whom you consider to be capable of helping you find a solution to your problem. Take advantage of their wisdom and years of experience and expertise.

Spiritual approach: Refer your problem to God, your guardian angel, a supernatural deity, your personal God or the Eternal Intelligence in whom you have faith and trust. Pray to the higher forces of creation for guidance and help. Express your gratitude for the blessings you have received so far.
