Tips for When You Can’t Decide What to Do
By Meg Lundstrom
When in the throes of indecision over something that matters–changing jobs, buying a car, choosing a doctor —most people believe the best decision will come about if they think it through carefully and thoroughly. But psychologists say that is not always the best approach.
Turns out, the unconscious mind can be better at making complicated choices than the conscious mind. The conscious mind can only process about seven bits of information per second—but the unconscious mind can process 11 million! By tapping into that supercomputer part of our mind—which feels, like the deepest, truest, most divine part of ourselves—we open the door to a vast amount of wisdom and we can get spot-on answers to our questions.
The best part is that this it’s not difficult to do! By following these 10 steps, you’ll learn how to access the answers you need from within.
