There have been many times in my life where someone will pose a question that I hadn't really thought about before, but the answer comes naturally to me, like I had given it a lot of thought. That has been happening here on this site quite a bit for me. It is very exciting! Have you had this happen, or do all of your answers come from a place of previous thought, study, meditation?

I find the best answers often come without any preconceived thought on my part - they just seem to flow. And, like Michael, I often find myself asking "where did that come from?" - the only plausible explanation seems to be that the answers, at times, come through us from a higher state of consciousness

It's like some answers I have to answer immediately to let the verbiage out of me, and all the rest (not many) I actually give thought to. Not many in between.

That's how I choose to believe Michaela. I call it higher self. Its messages are always there and we allow ourselves to receive them when our mind is quiet :)

I look for an excitement when I read the questions. Sometimes the excitement is awakened when I read other's answers.

When that happens the answer is often an energy that is bursting through, but the energy is the excitement connected to the understanding (of the solution). I feel like I am very much in control and trying to understand the answer in a way that it is as simple as possible.

This is my favorite way to put down an answer because I enjoy unraveling it like opening a present. In this case don't edit the answer because, often upon reading it, I find that I cannot re-create the same flow of information with conscious attention to grammatically intelligent sentence structure.

Unfortunately this does not happen most of the time. Usually it is a conscious push of intent and as I put down the answer I discover that it is not as interesting as it was within my consciousness, and often I delete the answer and just forget about it.

Lately I found that I prefer to allow a response to a question to just sit within my mind until it gathers enough momentum to where I can understand and translate it in a way that it is enjoyable to read and share with others.

There are other issues that do bother me and I fight the desire to fix it. For example the response above, I feel, has an over use of the word "answer" within it. So I practice "letting go" instead of trying to fix the "answer".

I visit IQ on my mobile telephone with a wi-fi connection. It's a great way to read the site but my thumbs are too big to write answers.So usually I do get an rough answer quickly.But I get to roll them around and sometimes compare to similar ones.
But I must agree that sometimes a universal knowledge seems to flow threw me and it feels great!

Yes, our subconscious mind knows the answer to all questions, and will answer them in very creative ways even to our surprise!
