I love this. When I'm my best self I use the subconscious in two ways. 1) write down an important question in my notebook a little bit before bed. Think about the possible answers for 3-5 minutes. Go about my evening, go to bed, wake up and immediately answer the question. Amazing things come out. My other tool is to write a question down, think about it. Then go for a run. Come back and answer. Answers don't feel as wonderful as the sleep method, but they're still pretty good.
