Director Mike Nichols recognizes the value for creative expression of our unconscious depths.
“In making movies,” he said, “time is so short — because it is so expensive — that we tend to neglect the place from which the best ideas come, namely that part of ourselves that dreams.
“The unconscious is our best collaborator. I try to let the participants have downtime before shooting and after rehearsal, so our secret collaborator can do its work. I have learned to trust and encourage that more.”
In his article Let Your Subconscious Mind Go To Work for You – Part 2, David J. Pollay writes about using this aspect of mind to support our intention to enhance our life in other ways as well.
Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz of the USC Medical School is quoted in the article:
“Perhaps any behavior change brought about by leaders, managers, therapists, trainers, or coaches is primarily a function of their ability to induce others to focus their attention on specific ideas close enough, often enough, and for a long enough time.”
Pollay suggests more consciously using our psyche to aid that process: “Make the start of every morning an intentional act. Give your subconscious mind the opportunity to help you construct the life you want to live.”
