A research team at the University of Iowa asked volunteers to play cards with different decks, some of which were fair and some of which were rigged against them. Their stress levels were monitored by measuring the perspiration levels on their palms. The rigged-deck participants started generating stress responses within ten cards, yet they didn’t suspect the game was fixed until fifty hands had been dealt, and couldn’t articulate it until eighty. Their clammy hands were telling them something was wrong via their subconscious way before their conscious brains had any idea what was going on.

We can all recount a moment when we ‘got a feeling’ or ‘felt a vibe’ that something wasn’t right or was unusual. It is known as our sixth sense. We can use this sense, with practice, to help us become more brilliant in our thinking and creativity. It is about being more aware of what is occurring on the inside as well as the outside.

Feeling dissatisfied by your job? Freedom is right here, right now. 5 easy steps to learn how to access your subconscious and change your state.

1. Slow down, breathe deeply and maybe go for a slow stroll outside. Notice everything around you and really drink in every detail. See the beauty in everything.

2. Stop somewhere you can relax, and breathe in all the colours and shapes and shadows. Notice the sounds around you – there are layers to them when you listen closely. There are scents on the air that, as you breathe in, you become conscious of and will taste in your mouth.

3. Notice how your body feels, its temperature, the feel of your clothing on your skin. As you move, be aware of your muscles and bones. Go very slowly. Watch your feet as you walk, and then stop and look up to the sky. Breathe deeply.

4. When the time feels right, ask yourself what is it you need to do now to become free within your job. What is it that, if you were to change it today, would make everything different for the better? When asking this question, focus on the things that you can control and that relate to you, rather than things that are external to you.

5. As you breathe, you will know which ideas have more potential because they will have more energy attached to them – they will tangibly produce more excitement in you and your body. It will take a little practice, but you will be amazed how quickly reading your inner thoughts can become a part of everyday life.

It is like a walking meditation. In essence you are slowing down your brain to help you access more of your subconscious, and therefore sensitize yourself to internal processing, to external stimulus and to universal consciousness.

Not bad for some deep breathing and a wander down the road.

Best selling author, speaker and business beatnik Chris Baréz Brown has a rather unusual view of the world in that he knows that everybody is perfect. As we grow, develop and socialise we can lose touch with that brilliance and often become somebody we’re not. Chris founded his Dorset based company Upping Your Elvis in 2009 to help people reconnect with their inner genius and once again become confident in being who they truly are. The Guardian recently described Chris as a long haired, twinkly eyed cross between Richard Branson and a wizard.
