Three Easy Ways To Become More Creative With Your Problem Solving

Aug 24, 2007
Have you ever wondered why it is that you always get stuck and experience problems that stop you moving forward in life at a certain point? If your answer is yes, you are already way ahead of the crowd. Why? Because most people do not even realise that they are experiencing the same problems at certain points in their lives over and over again.

It is the nature of human performance that we keep running patterns. Patterns of thinking, patterns of behaviour, patterns for coping, patterns for learning, patterns for dealing with our friends, spouse, parents. Patterns are everywhere. The trick is recognising them and assessing them correctly.

Sounds pretty simple, maybe even obvious, doesn't it? The real problem though is that most patterns come in different guises. They are well camouflaged, wrapped in extensive packaging, making it more difficult for us to notice them. Unless you find a way of clearly identifying these patterns, whenever they occur, you will not be able to make constructive changes. Therefore the first step is finding a way to identify your behaviour patterns. You can do this easily by learning self awareness.

The simplest way to observe your actions is by employing a technique that allows you to step back from yourself. To my mind this is best done by elevating your energy levels, which will make you feel good about yourself, no matter what is going on in your life at the moment.

Out of the many energy therapies out there EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique is one of the best for this purpose. EFT belongs to the group of energy therapies. It is powerful and very quick and easy to learn. Using a combination of needle free acupuncture and mind focus EFT relaxes you by putting you in an alpha state of mind. This state of mind makes you more open to suggestions, it is also a state, which allows subconscious behaviours to surface.

This is precisely what we are after. Once you are cognitive about a particular pattern you are running and know exactly when it kicks in, you will automatically see all the times you have been running it in the past. These aha moments are like kaleidoscopes unfolding. Now you can do something positive to help yourself in the future. Again, awareness is key, but since you know what to look for you are able to recognize the beginning of a pattern much easier.

How do you stop these old behaviours unfolding though? EFT again is your tool. The moment you recognise an old pattern unfolding you use the EFT modality focusing on the changes you now wish to make.

When we work with EFT, opening the energy channels by tapping on a small number of meridian points on body and face whilst we focus on an issue that we wish to resolve, we also build new neural pathways. The is a very fast process. One round, as we call it, takes about a minute to complete.I usually recommend to do at least three rounds. You can use this technique as often as you like throughout your day.

Use EFT at least three times throughout their day and you will get noticeable shifts in behaviour very quickly. Sometimes these shifts can be almost instantaneous, particularly when you realise with total clarity how your own repetitive behaviour has done you more harm then good.

EFT is a great mood enhancer and calmer. It goes without saying that you are more willing to embrace change and enhance your mental acuity and creativity when you are in a good frame of mind. We all can get into this state temporarily. The key to eradicating any problem successfully is maintaining an unattached, upbeat mind set. This is precisely what you can achieve with regular use of Emotional Freedom Technique. Please check out the many ways how you can help yourself with EFT. It really can enrich your life.
