The human mind is capable of recalling everything that it has ever seen, heard, read or experienced.
THE “THREE ‘Rs” 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.
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 the subject matter you’re studying, so they are taken at the conclusion of each segment. A new segment to begin after the break helps to keep the study fresh and interesting. 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 blocking out the unavoidable external distractions.
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 a 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! 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.
Hypnotism Stimulates Learning By:
- Increasing Motivation
- Establishing Good Study Habits
- Boosting Confidence
- Reducing Study Tension
- Eliminating the Fear of Examinations
- Improving Memory
- Blocking External Distractions
A motivated person can emerge from hypnosis with purpose, direction, and organization. Attitudes change, poor habits are overcome, and enthusiasm can be developed; all of which increase 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.
