I need to know if there is anyway to speed up the aging process of a solid top acoustic guitar. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
The more you play it the more it will age, can't think of any was to really speed it up without playing it constantly.

Playing it would be the best and most direct way. But I suppose you could speed it up by placing it near an amplifier/radio/etc when you not playing it. The vibrations produced by amplifier/radio when it's producing music MIGHT help with the aging. I'm not sure how well it would work, or if it would even work. Just throwing out suggestions.
Maybe a sustainer clipped to it while you're not using it, otherwise just play it a lot.

Medium gauge strings will make your top vibrate more and thus help it "open up"

Maybe give it a shot.

Medium strings will help the aging process, but just make sure that your guitar can handle it first.

You can technically "age" a guitar by exposing it to vibrations from speakers, but it won't do anything near as much as playing the actual guitar.
