The human mind is capable of recalling everything that it has ever seen, heard, read or experienced; anything it desires to remember.

What Is Memory?
Memory is the process of storage and retrieval of information in the brain which is crucial to learning. 
Your subconscious mind can recall everything that's happened within your scope of awareness, whether it be memory of a past event, the location of a misplaced item, study material, names, addresses, numbers or any information that you've needed at a specific time for a specific purpose.  With the help of hypnotism, forgetting can be reduced, names, dates and numbers can be remembered, and a lot of frustration can be avoided.

The Three Types of Human Remembering

  • Sensory memory: Functions like seeing, smelling, feeling, hearing and tasting.
  • Motor skill memory: Remembering how to perform physical activities like riding a bicycle, driving a car, swimming, dancing, etc.
  • Memory of words, ideas and concepts: The most vital yet the least retentive type of memory and perhaps the most complex.
The level of meaningfulness is important in memory development. Meaningfulness is key to organizing the material to be learned into a logical pattern, emphasizing the broadest concept, the theme, and then narrowing the focus to appropriate specifics.

The "Three R's" of Remembering

REGISTERING - Taking note of what you want to remember.  You cannot recall something you haven't taken notice of.

RETAINING - the process of storing information after it has been registered.

RETRIEVING - the process of getting information from your memory after it has been registered and stored.

Study Habits
Your study habits are affected by both external and internal conditions.  One external factor would be the physical location of the study area.  We learn best when we study in a specific location where external distraction is at a minimum.  (Free of TV, cell phones, interruptions by family and friends, or telephone, pager or computer contact.) 

Concentration is essential to learning, so if it becomes difficult to concentrate, it's best to leave the study area for a break.  A five minute break every half-hour can improve your concentration and make learning easier. Five minute breaks at half hour intervals, can be coordinated with subject matter you're studying, so they're taken at the conclusion of each segment.  A new segment to begin after the break helps to keep the study fresh and interesting.

Internally, factors such as poor time management drains your energy and emotions, which negatively affects the learning process.  Organization is the solution.  Break it down into easily accomplishable segments. Hypnosis can help by programming these procedures into a learner, and hypnosis a wonderful way to block out the unavoidable external distractions.

Fear

Fear can be an obstruction to learning; and the presence of fear can make you a prime candidate for hypnotic intervention.  With hypnosis, you can relax at will, experience feelings of confidence, use a cue (or post hypnotic suggestion) to regain control, motivation for success, or defuse the fear of exams.

Reward 

Motivation seems to elude us in the absence of reward.  A powerful element in learning is  reward, the recognition of personal achievement and self appreciation expressed through reward.  The anticipation of a reward creates motivation.  Planning for small rewards at various increments of progress maintains excitement and stimulation.
 

Can Hypnosis Help?

In a word, YES!  Low self esteem detracts from learning; so does lack of motivation, bad study habits, poor memory, the absence of reward, and fear.  In hypnosis, one can establish or reprogram effective personal learning habits, boost self-esteem, relieve stress and create motivation; all of which can result in enhanced learning and improved memory.

Three Simple Steps That Work:

  • Accepting learning as an opportunity
  • Changing negative habits and procedures
  • Improving your confidence and self-esteem
Hypnotism Stimulates Learning By: 
  • increasing motivation
  • establishing good study habits
  • boosting confidence
  • reducing study tension
  • eliminating fear of examinations
  • improving memory
  • blocking external distractions
A disorganized person can emerge from hypnosis with purpose, direction and organization.  Attitudes change, poor habit are overcome, enthusiasm can be developed; all of which increases self respect.  With hypnosis a student can be assisted to achieve their scholastic goals while developing the kind of good habits that will provide a lifetime of benefits. 

Learn More When You Use All of Your Senses 

In hypnosis, the more sensory inputs we utilize the more likely it is to create change for a person.  This is also true for learning and memory. Long term retention is lacking when we learn from just reading or listening to a lecture.  Unfortunately, the learning environment in our colleges is not conducive to long term learning and most college graduates admit they remember very little of what they learned in college.  What IS conducive to long term learning?  Feeling, Seeing, Hearing, Touching and Doing. The experts say that we remember approximately 20% of what we read, about 30% of what we hear, about 40% of what we see, about 50% of what we say, about 60% of what we do, and.... about 90% of what we see, hear, say AND do!

Your learning will improve when you make an effort to utilize all of your sensory systems.  If learning from a book, pause once in a while, close your eyes and create internal dialogue with yourself so you're actually commenting to yourself about what you are learning and how you'll remember it.  Imagine yourself fully utilizing the information you're learning so it becomes more vivid and real to you. If you can imagine yourself teaching others what you're learning,  you'll benefit even more because preparing to teach is one of the best ways to learn.
