Recently on a Master Practitioner training I was running, someone asked me the name of an author of a book about metaphors. Now I know that I knew the name, however the harder I tried to remember, the harder it got! Everyone has had that ‘tip of the tongue’ experience, where you know that you know something and it feels like it is on the tip of your tongue, however the harder you try to remember, the harder it gets!
So when do you remember it?
When you STOP trying. For example, when you are walking up the road later in the day and are doing something different. When you stop trying consciously and trust your unconscious, you are capable of incredible things.
