10x Your Memory Power
Examinations reveal the fact, that even in this comparatively simple matter one finds no general knowledge of the laws governing the choice of fingering, or of those relating to the memorizing of the fingering chosen. In fact, there even seems to be very little suspicion, generally, that such laws exist There are indeed plenty of excellent musicians who fancy that the determining of fingering is a purely arbitrary matter, not coming under any natural laws. True, there are some amongst the more capable teachers, who do recognise some of these laws and rules these particular laws not having been left so totally undiscovered as those relating to Tone-production and Agility.
If you haven't been shown the techniques you can use to boost your memory you will never understand what you are truly capable of and be able to tap into the incredible power of your mind. Does Your Memory Change as You Age However there is evidence to suggest that if it is not used it can get rusty. There is further evidence to show that by practising memory techniques you can boost your memory power by a huge margin. If you eat a balanced diet and avoid eating processed food there should not be any reason why your diet should effect your memory. However there are a number of nutrients which are essential if you brain, and memory are to function efficiently. Recent research has found that choline is essential for good memory. In fact it has been used to treat people with all kinds of mental disorders. Choline occurs naturally in Soya beans. Folic acid is also an important nutrient for efficient brain functioning and if you have a deficiency then this can cause you to have problems...
By doing this, you help your memory to process the information because each chunk of material will have a beginning and an end. And as you remember we remember items better that occur at the beginning and end of a section. So by splitting your work into many sections you create many more beginnings and endings. By taking regular five-minute breaks in If I were to tell you that your memory is probably every bit as phenomenal as the magician's or the doorman's you might find that hard to believe but it is true. In fact you could probably do a lot better with the right techniques and a lot of practise I have said it before but I will say I again. Your brain is able to remember everything you have heard seen or done. In side your mind right now are probably all the names of your classmates from your reception class at infant school. You almost certainly know the address and telephone number of every place you have ever lived. You probably even know what you had for lunch on the 14th March...
Must one learn strange words like zazen Can one remember everything about the frontal lobe No. But this is the way Zen is. And if you're anything like me, you'll become fascinated by the latest discoveries about the human brain, the center of our being. How do its different regions function, individually and in concert We begin to answer this question in part III, always heeding Pavlov's advice first, become familiar with the groundwork of neuroscience, the better later to climb its heights.
The following is the rule - the only rule - in this matter Ascertain, first, the precise breath-rhythm which nature has given you for use in moments of recuperation after extreme mental, emotional or physical strain and then, second, practice the same voluntarily by assuming, or acting out the mental and physical conditions producing it, until the rhythm becomes fixed in your memory, so that you can easily reproduce it, instinctively, when you wish. Read this rule over until you thoroughly understand it.
Therefore, your correct responses would begin at that back end of time's arrow. They would unfold in the following sequence notch, most recently (you've got sharp eyesight) feathers, recently rest of shaft, earlier, and so on. Recency judgments are challenging. One must file each fresh detail not only into its correct position along some timeline but also make quick mental shifts into an overview mode. The frontal lobes specialize in this kind of working memory task.
Performance of a role model (like a videotape presentation of a sports performance), which is then applied in some way or adopted to the athlete's own technique and physical capacities. It is, however, very important to make sure that the image that performers have is the correct one, whether it's one developed by their coaches or one they have conceived from a book, videotape or other credible source. It is important to be able to see yourself from without (dissociated), as though looking at yourself on a videotape replay, and it is important to look out from yourself as you would when actually performing this particular motor skill. It is also extremely helpful to have a kinesthetic sense of what you are doing, to feel every move as well as see it. You should sense in any way (including hearing) what you are doing, and then memorize the way that you do it best. Then you need to continue reinforcing what you do right versus what you do wrong. This is essential because it does not...
Implicitly, however, the stimuli do influence the patient's behaviour. These observations support the view that there are two memory systems the explicit memory system and the implicit memory system (Schacter, 1987) or memory with and without awareness (Jacoby & Dallas, 1981). A similar distinction is suggested for perception (Kihlstrom 1992b). Alongside implicit memory and perception, Kihlstrom (1992b) talks of unconscious emotion and cognition as information processes that can influence ongoing experience, thought and action, outside of the phenomenal awareness.
Roles not only in reinforcement but in sensitization, locomotion, working memory, fear-associated learning, anxiety, and depression.2 Five different types of muscarinic ACH receptors are currently recognized. Certain inbred strains of mice lack the important muscarinic M1 receptor. Theta bursts produce only weak long-term potentiation in their hippocampus, and they show impaired working memory and memory consolidation.4
A meditator must endeavour to attain complete knowledge of all the materiality and mentality which make up the five aggregates of clinging by developing these three types of full understanding. For this reason the meditator should first know, learn, and memorize all types of materiality and mentality. Below is an explanation of materiality.
At age six or seven he memorized the root text of Nga-ri Pan-chen Padma-wang-gyel's11 Ascertainment of the Three Vows and so forth, and studied introductory books on white and black astrology. Able to write not only in capital and cursive Tibetan but also in other alphabets, such as Lantsa, at age ten he composed a poem, which when scholars saw it, they were amazed. Thus, in the Kam area, various scholars passed his poem amongst themselves, and even at that age he became famous for his intelligence.
The way of asking and answering follows the energy beam, which goes from a developing luminous body to energy field, or a mature luminous body residing at a place of power. It consists of infinite number of energy channels. Information flow down these channels in the shape of energy. Answer given in this way is memorized in the developing luminous body, and the information, adjusted so that a human can grasp it, is directed through a similar but simpler beam to the aura. This beam touches the outer, least dense part of the aura, where energy information reaches the ends of information channels, which, gradually, lead the information energy from the aura's surface to the contacts with the nervous endings in the body. Following the peripheral nervous system, the information reach the brain and are decoded to a smaller or greater extent.
Of the Sixteen Contemplations (Contemplation of Amitabha Buddha) and combined it with Oral Recitation to form the Contemplation of the Buddha-Oral Recitation technique. (Recitation is predominant, while contemplation is secondary.) Each day, after reciting the Buddha's name, the practitioner reserves a special period of time for concentrating his mind and contemplating the Embellishments and Light of Amitabha Buddha. This method is derived from Contemplation Number Thirteen in the Meditation Sutra, in which Buddha Amitabha is visualized as some sixteen feet tall and of golden hue, standing at the edge of the Seven-Jewel Pond. If the practitioner cannot yet visualize the Seven-Jewel Pond, he can picture Amitabha Buddha standing before his eyes in a zone of light, in open space, the left hand held at chest level and forming the auspicious mudra, the right arm extending downward in the position of 'welcoming and guiding.' To be successful in this meditation, it is necessary, at the...
Strashun, et al. discussed at the Triological Society, 1993, NY, that, SPECT results of brain demonstrate for the first time the in vivo significance of the organacity of brain for a central type tinnitus auditory function can be considered to involve multiple neural networks reflecting various attributes of hearing It can be speculated that a short term memory is established for tinnitus in the medial temporal lobe memory system which becomes stored in associated areas of the neo-cortex. A paradoxical memory for tinnitus may cause the tinnitus to become clinically manifest as a severely disabling tinnitus.
Toward the end of my graduate studies. I stumbled upon the hypnosis literature. In hopes of gainful employment (at a time when the market for new faculty had collapsed , I took a position with a franchise outfit that offered lo train me in hypnotic techniques. I ended up with a bunch of unexceptional tapes that 1 could memorize but that taught me virtually nothing about hypnotic strategy or tactics. So 1 went to a medical school library and hit the stiicks.
The Precious Treasury of the Way of Abiding, one volume in the great Longchen Rabjam's famous collection, The Seven Treasuries, consists of a set of source verses and Longchen Rabjam's own commentary on them. In traditional Buddhist writing, important works are often structured in this way. The verses provide a summary of the subject matter dealt with at length in the prose commentary and have the advantage of being more easily memorized than the complete text. Indeed, in the past, studying such texts included committing the verses to memory, enabling the student to readily call to mind the issues elaborated on in the commentary. The present volume preserves this structure the beginning section, containing the source verses, is followed by the commentary, within which the verses (printed in boldface type) are cited by Longchen Rabjam as steps in the development of his presentation.
The six steps are as follows The first step is to plan the suggestion before going into hypnosis. This reduces the tendency, once in hypnosis, to do too much thinking. It is also suggested that patients plan the suggestion, thinking about the event or time that they are planning, which should ideally be within the next hour or two. They are instructed to think of themselves in the situation, responding to the situation exactly as they would like to respond. For instance, suppose they are concerned about an important meeting and being too anxious or nervous. Instead of saying that they will not be anxious or nervous, they will picture how they would like to respond, and the positive suggestion may be given I will go to that meeting and I will feel comfortable. I'll feel relaxed, calm, and in control, and will remember everything that I have planned for.
And rats, too, can add to our understanding. Researchers can train rats to learn certain longer intervals of time. The technique is to withhold food until the end of each such interval. It can then be shown that cholinergic mechanisms influence the way the animals estimate these time intervals. Indeed, higher effective levels of acetylcholine appear to help the rats retain useful memory traces both in their long-term reference memory and in their ongoing working memory functions.3 But the experiments also suggest something else when rats are rushed into storing memories faster, they don't remember well the particular time interval involved. And other drugs that enhance the synaptic functions of dopamine cause the rats' internal clock to speed up. How do we weave the fabric of time And where could a few scissor cuts cause a whole garment to come apart Patients develop major defects in estimating time after lesions that damage their mediodorsal thalamus on both sides. They become...
In addition to feeling full of energy, you will find that you will be relaxed and in control all day long. Issues at work or in other areas of your life that bothered you will cease to bother you tomorrow. In place of the stress that had become a part of your life, you will find peaceful and relaxing feelings. Your memory and concentration will improve as you relax peacefully during the day. Day by day, in every way, you are feeling better and better.(PAUSE)
Psychologists have discovered that most of us have a short term memory which can naturally absorb up to seven, plus or minus two, units or items at any given time. If you read one word at a time then the chances are This not only increases your memory but also dramatically increases the speed at which you read by three or four times. In actual fact the effect is to increase your reading speed much more than that because if you read one word at a time it is easy to become bored which means we lose our concentration. This has an adverse affect on our comprehension and memory. This is the time it takes for your eyes to move from the end of one line to the start of the next one. Incredible as it sounds it is estimated that the average reader will spend about one third of their time just trying to find the next line. So if you have just read for an hour you might have spent twenty minutes just staring at empty space looking for the next line. That means you have spent twenty minutes...
What is it that changes and mends in you, and enables spiritual beings to help you to their best First of all, it is the state of your aura. It shows its capacities and sensibility to receive a certain piece of information, transfer it to your nervous system, and then to your brain, where you become aware of it and then memorize it. The ability of your aura to realize certain powers, to sense the paranormal world - that is what is being changed that is what represents its advancement.
To be a good hypnotist you need to have integrity, honesty, dedication, and must really care about all humanity. Assuming you have these personal qualities, then all you need to do is memorize the techniques. Then just practice, practice, and more practice. And learn each time you practice. Then you will be able to call yourself a hypnotist.
Discrete dorsolateral lesions may also cause other symptoms pronounced defects in working memory, in planning, in shifting attention, and impaired performance on a gambling task.6 However, the lesions tend not to change either the patient's own subjective emotional state, social behavior, or the ability to identify the expression of emotion in another person's face or voice.7
In acute toxicity studies in humans, smoking marijuana disrupts both the transient attentional and the more sustained functions that the subjects require to solve working memory tasks. It also decreases theta EEG power globally, and reduces the amplitude of event-related potentials.26
First, because theta activities also arise in deeper brain regions. Several of these sites are now being linked with active human memory functions. Indeed, we could not remember either spatial or nonspatial events without the subcortical network that helps encode and retrieve our memories.20 Moreover, when the brain is stimulated at theta frequencies it becomes especially capable of generating long-term potentiation in the hippocampus. This process greatly enhances the working memory functions that hinge on spatial relationships.
When rats are conditioned to respond to threatening stimuli, their lateral amygdala nerve cells undergo two different types of rapid firing activity. The firing in one group of its cells serves the rat's immediate needs. These cells respond quickly, but only transiently. Cells in the second group respond more slowly to each stimulus, but their enhanced discharges last much longer, not only in episodes during training but also on much later occasions.8 Nerve cells of this second type could serve a rat's needs for very long-term memory.
The link between them will take care only of the 300 meters distance limit. This means that the contact with the human will be stopped, and there will be no interaction that has existed during all of his life. This is the period when a man is on his own in a way. During this period the luminous body will use the knowledge that has been sorted and processed not only for itself, but it will direct certain ideas and knowledge towards the aura or the yellow core, if a person has one. These ideas will be memorized there. This knowledge is only an echo of the vast knowledge that the luminous body has taken over during the imbuement. However, it will be used as something that will help the luminous body to activate the person's creativity in an easier way.
Broadly speaking memory falls into two categories. One is called short term memory and the other as long term memory. As the name suggests, short term memory is temporary where as long-term memory is permanent. The short term memory is used to remember immediate information in order to carry out an immediate task. A good example would be if you had to remember someone's telephone number long enough so that you could write it down or dial it. Short-term memory can last anything from 20 seconds up to two days. Now unless there is some reason why the information learned should be made permanent you will forget it, at least consciously. If there is some important reason why you need to remember the information, then you'll have to make a conscious effort to transfer it into your long-term memory. Long-term memory has been described as permanent storage and in theory you should be able to retrieve information from it once it has been stored there. Example of how the short term memory and...

Intelligence is responsibility it is a response to a new situation, not out of your past memories but from your present awareness, this very moment. You don't function as a computer, you don't search for the answer in your memory rather you simply open your consciousness to the situation with your totality, the gestalt, and allow the spontaneous response, in real time.
The feelings in his mouth, and the question of how the mouth works. Once you get the child interested in his own bruxism movement, sooner or later he will show it to you. You ask him to really memorize those feelings, and then you express the very pious hope that he won't awaken when he makes that bruxism movement during sleep. And you express this hope so nicely and so genuinely and so suggestively that you actually condition him to awaken by your subtle negative suggestion.

E Now it isn't necessary for me to speak to you. You've heard what I had to say. Pause Your experience of learning to retain the spoken word, and you can repeat this on and on through your mind. Pause And make your response fit your memories as my words flow through your memory. Pause
To establish mindfulness, to watch and wait, to examine in the manner described the suffering that comes to one - this is very best way to penetrate to Buddha Dhamma. It is infinitely better than learning it from the Tipitaka. Busily studying Dhamma in the Tipitaka from the linguistic or literary viewpoint is no way to come to know the true nature of things. Of course the Tipitaka is full of explanations as to the nature of things but the trouble is that people listen to it in the manner of parrots or talking myna birds, repeating later what they have been able to memorize. They themselves are incapable of penetrating to the true nature of things. If instead they would do some introspection and discover for themselves the facts of mental life, find out firsthand the properties of the mental defilements, of suffering, of nature, in other words of all the things in which they are involved, they would then be able to penetrate to the real Buddha Dhamma. Though a person may...
The pakua, traced with the mind in meditation, is drawn in layers, beginning with the outer, three-inch octagon, then continuing with levels two and three. All are drawn in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction. Then the eight spokes are created to connect the layers. These spokes combine at the Tai Chi symbol placed at the center of the pakua. After the shape is memorized well, it can be recreated simply by visualization. (Fig. 1.2)
Will you all please collect your mind together and focus within yourself. Listen to this teaching and bring and examine it within so as to see Dhamma there. You won't realize Dhamma from just the outside sounds, for that would be just memorizing or an intellectual understanding, whereas understanding the truth in oneself is seeing Dhamma with wisdom. Therefore, now centre on yourself. Focus to see from the gross and blatant to the subtle and refined Now, consider the source teaching of the Lord Buddha which is the 'Truth of Suffering'. One firstly 'reads' with the intellect, memorizing following the Lord Buddha's Teaching. He presented for our attention the Truth of Suffering
No laboratory rat depends any less on his morning meal. Wherever you deposit him in a complicated maze, he'll finally work his way back to that very same spot where he, too, had found his breakfast before. His hippocampus plays a key role in this spatial working memory. Why are some of its pyramidal cells called place cells Because they fire more only when this rat occupies one particular place in the maze.9 Certain animal strains perform especially well on such tests of working memory. Bred selectively, they now have extra-large mossy fiber terminals in their hippocampus.10
Some memory traces linger for a moment. Others endure for a lifetime. This implies that we have a few options for storing these traces, either in the form of (1) an immediate memory, (2) a short-term memory, or (3) a long-term memory. Immediate memory registers sensory percepts only for a moment. Our short-term memory lumps the incoming sensate stimuli into only a few conceptual units, called chunks. For example, one chunk might constitute an entire verse of familiar poetry. Still, our short-term memory has a relatively limited capacity. It can only handle a mere seven to ten such chunks of information, and we forget these relatively quickly. But long-term memory handles a huge number of chunks. Within its compartments, we represent memory traces in a much more stable form.3 A chess master uses this kind of memory to scan some fifty thousand or more chunks in long-term memory, and relies on it to provide the best solution for his next move.
The lower part of our parietal cortex is called the inferior parietal lobule.5 There is nothing inferior about it, nor could it be more strategically placed. Here is another region where visual scene comes together with body scheme. Here, our viewer-centered representations relate the self of our own physical body to the world outside it. Perhaps in a sense, this is where we start to feel certain that the apple lies inside or outside the clutch of our own grasping hands. Do we know how far our arm can reach We know exactly how far. Because every day, for years, we have made deposits of such representations into our autobiographical memory bank. Each entry in this personal account documented where the axis of our physical self and the length of our arm resided in space at that very moment.
As I mentioned earlier, you have a love factory right here in your chest. Now you're going to discover how to use it As a child, you probably received plenty of advice on how to use your mind. Your teachers taught you how to solve math problems and memorize facts your parents may have helped you with your homework perhaps you even read some books on speed-reading or improving your study habits. But did anyone ever sit you down and explain how to love Sure, you had role models but did they teach you how to do what they did In this section, you're going to pick up some skills you never studied at home or in school.
So I do not expect you to write down scripts forever, but merely suggest that when you are learning it is both a useful way to get your thoughts into order and to aid your memory when it comes to the actual process itself. It is rather like giving a speech. If you have not had much practice then it is almost essential to write it down at first, but as you get more and more experienced you need to refer to your written speech less and less and need to write down less and less until in the end you can talk without any notes at all.
Researchers (Fisher, 1971) have recently investigated state-dependent learning in a number of ways. One group of subjects memorize nonsense syllables while drunk. It is then found that they are better able to recall them on a later occasion when they are drunk than when they are sober. Recall is thus state-dependent recall takes place better when people are in the same state they were in when exposed to the learning. Other investigators verified the same state-dependent phenomenon with amphetamine-induced excitatory states and amobarbitual-induced inhibitory states. Fisher generalizes these results into a theory of how multiple existence became possible by living from waking state to another waking state from one dream to the next from LSD to LSD from one creative, artistic, religious or psychotic inspiration or possession to another from trance to trance and from reverie to reverie.
It you were traumatized by a past event and want to erase it from your memory, relive the event in your mind and visualize it unfolding as you would have wanted it to unfold. Repeat the visualization as many times as is necessary in order to replace the negative memory with a positive one.
This exercise consists of mentally traveling from point to point in numerical order. You will stop at each point and maintain a mental awareness of the number of the point while visualizing a blue dot or ball at each point. At first, you will need to keep your notes at your side until you have memorized the location of all 61 points. In the beginning you can also listen to the exercise on a tape or CD, if you would like me to talk you through this exercise, you can obtain my audio tape or CD by just clicking here.
Another appeal to your memory will show you also, that the magnetic person is almost always possessed of that indefinable something, which we call strength and energy. He may not be a stout, large person - he may even be a scrawny, lank individual, of slight frame and small stature - but even in the last case he will be wiry and like a coiled wire spring, full of latent energy. The magnetic person is never the weak, flabby, jellyfish type. I have seen these thin magnetic persons on their deathbeds, weakened by disease, but even in their last moments they gave one the impression of keen springlike strength. The other type of magnetic person, the stout type, also gives the impression of power and strength - a something within which stores and radiates strength and power.

Rappelsberger, et al. Synchronization between prefrontal and posterior association cortex during human working memory. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA 1998 95 7092-7096. (Gamma waves are cited here as ranging between 19 and 32 cps.) 18. H. Parthasarathy. Mind rhythms. New Scientist 1999 2210 28-31. The hypothesis is attributed to John Lisman and colleagues. A theoretical model simpler to explain suggests that during short-term working memory, gamma oscillations might become enhanced some six times a second at a theta frequency. (See L. Ward, reference 8, on page 555.) The central issue remains What useful functions emerge from these myriad processes of excitation, inhibition, and disinhibition The waveforms recorded are but indirect reflections of the rhythmic, dynamic flux of these basic underlying processes.
Check the continuity of your mind by following it back in time from the present to as far as your memory will allow you. Having memory itself is a proof of the continuity of the mind. As you follow the natural flow of your memories back in time, you will come across both joyful and miserable experiences. You are supposed to recognize them and also how you felt at that time, but then carry on back in time without indulging in any one of your recollections. When your memory starts to fade, use your imagination and reconstruct how it must have been like, being an infant, and a fetus in mother's womb as well as at the time of conception. When you bring back your memory of the mind to the point of birth there are only three choices from where the mind could arise. Either the mind comes from the parents' minds, which is not possible since one can not receive a piece of someone else's mind. Or it pops into existence without a cause, which is also not possible, since an impermanent phenomenon...
Although this account of morality under four headings is not found until well after the Buddha's time, it is not out of keeping with the spirit of his teaching and can well be made use of as a guide to practice. The meditator should grasp the spirit of moral discipline. Though the monk cannot memorize all the major rules of the Patimokkha, let alone the details of the various minor rules, if he grasps the spirit of the moral practice and keeps to it, he is very well established in morality. Herein lies the significance of the moral practice.
Now there is a lot more I could say about the various systems I have just mentioned however to do this subject justice would take up another course in its own right. For example it is possible to combine the different methods to produce a phenomenally powerful system. You can compartmentalise the various systems. You can use the link method in combination with the phonetic system. Or you can use the room method with the phonetic system. Basically the sky is the limit. What I hope I have done is introduce to you some ideas and techniques which will enable you to dramatically boost your memory power. The tape enclosed is designed to word on your subconscious mind because many people think they can't remember things because they have just got into the habit of forgetting. You don't have that excuse any more Some memory experts believe that in order to develop a great memory you should stop writing things down or making lists. They believe you should get into the habit of storing...
The Perkins Method of Hypnosis involves learning hypnosis by reading my scripts into a tape recorder. You then listen to the scripts over and over again until you feel you have the right sound and the correct feel to it. You do not need to memorize the scripts. You only have to know the sequence of events that lead a person into hypnosis and then lead a person back to full consciousness.
Ananda, who returned to the monastery escaping the spell cast by the outcastes, worshipped the Buddha and stood there respectfully. The Buddha addressed Ven. Ananda and said thus Ananda, you must listen to sadaksara vidya (The Magic of Six Letters) and memorize it. This will benefit you, monks, nuns, and male and female lay-devotees. This sadaksara vidya has been preached by six Buddhas. This has been preached by the Four Guardian Gods, by the Chief of Gods, Sahampati Maha Brahma, and by me the Sakya Sage (Sakya-muni). Ananda, you too must memorize it, and meditate upon it. This is how it goes
Immediately after doing trance termination, which you will learn in the next chapter, ask the person you are hypnotizing if they have any exciting plans for the weekend. This will cause them to think about something other than the hypnotherapy session. If you can distract them in this way for just a few minutes, their short-term memory of the session will deteriorate over that time and they will have more difficulty remembering the session later. Perhaps you have woken up in the morning with the memory of a dream. You know that if you don't write it down immediately, it may be lost forever. It doesn't go away, it just becomes difficult for your conscious mind to retrieve it from your subconscious mind. This distraction method works the same way. If they do not recount the events of the session immediately after it is over, they may lose conscious access to it forever.
One needs to teach such persons in the hypnotic state the necessity of respecting the unconscious. One needs to teach them that all memories are stored in compartments within the subconscious or the unconscious mind, and that when students read for an examination, they need not read with the idea of memorizing but only for the purpose of understanding the material. It can be impressed upon this patticular type of patient that if he reads with understanding, his knowledge will be retained within his unconscious. Of course, it takes longer to discuss it with the patient than it does to review here the few general broad statements that are made.
The routines that you say to the subject are in italics. It is good if you memorize them, but it is perfectly OK to read them. Initially, just memorize routine A. It is quite short, and when your subject sees you are speaking from memory, he tends to have more confidence in you. During routine A you have the subject close his eyes so from that point on he doesn't know if you are reading of speaking from memory. It really isn't that big of an issue anyway. You will find that you will have it all memorized anyway after doing it a few times. Having it all memorized does a lot for your confidence in yourself, also.
First, you must either have the hypnosis routines memorized, or have them typed and handy so you can easily read them. This is covered thoroughly in other places in this book. depend on her responsiveness. Stress also that she cannot be made to do anything under hypnosis that is contrary to her will . . . she cannot be made to do anything that she wouldn't be willing to do while not under hypnosis. Also stress that she will always be aware of everything that is happening and will remember everything that happened.
Because our frontal lobes do keep monitoring and updating our responses, they help us maintain a given task ''online.'' A different phrase, ''working memory,'' is used to describe related frontal lobe functions. These are the kinds that help us keep certain recent items actionably ''in mind'' for brief periods. Intra-cranial EEGs have been recorded from patients. They show that theta increases more when the patients rely on their memory alone to navigate through a virtual maze as opposed to being guided by visual arrow cues.8 Standard EEG studies suggest that our short-term working-memory tasks are associated not only with coherent prefrontal theta activities (4-7 cps) but also with theta in the posterior association cortex.9 These joint findings seem to correlate with the actual functional links joining the frontoparietal regions. (Though coherent synchronized gamma activities increase in a similar fashion, they are thought to be referable more to the earlier steps involved in...
And others still How long were you married For the ones that feel curiosity for things of that type I would say If you read with attention the Master's books, and mine also, a lot of things would be illuminated . Still precise to find that they can tell me with honesty that it is possible to remember everything after only one reading.
If you do not remember your dreams or do not remember them often, it is usually enough to formulate a clear intention to begin to do so. It helps also to strengthen this intention by taking some action to show the unconscious that you are serious. Set a pad and pen on your nightstand, and jot down whatever you remember immediately upon waking. If you think you can put it off until after you shower and dress, you may discover that the dream evaporates in the meantime. So jot it down right away. If you do not have time to write the dream out in full, then just note enough to give your memory a handle on the dream so you can recall it later in more detail.
Ananda, who received those eight privileges, was not only the Buddha's personal attendant, he was also the Buddha's private secretary. Like an expert writer Ven. Ananda recorded in his mind as in a note-book the Sermons and Discourses of the Buddha, His discussions and dialogues, questions asked of Him and replies given by Him, and also the events and incidents that took place. He kept all those in mind. He memorized them thoroughly.
In memorizing Fingering, precisely the same process has to be pursued. Memorizing In itself, it is of no use remembering that the thumb goes here, or that Fingering. the little finger goes there it is only when these particular fingers are used as landmarks, to suggest to us where the successive finger-note groupings commence and end, that we can proceed to memorize the fingering. For we can only memorize Fingering in one way, and that is, by making sure that we recognise the successive complete or incomplete sets or groups of fingers, and by then forcing ourselves to connect these sets of fingers mentally with the particular sets of notes on the keyboard concerned in each group. Thus, in learning the diatonic scales, we find that they all consist of two Diatonic groups of fingering 123, and 1234 now we can onty proceed to memorize
O monks, let each of you see into his own Mind. Do not memorize what I tell you. However eloquently I may talk about all kinds of things as innumerable as the sands of the Ganges, the Mind shows no increase even when no talk is possible, the Mind shows no decrease. You may talk ever so much about it, and it is still your own Mind you may not at all talk about it, and it is just the same your own Mind. You may divide your body into so many forms, and emitting rays of supernatural light perform the eighteen miracles, and yet what you have gained is after all no more than your own dead ashes.
1) The Dhammapada in its Theravada version came to be written down in the first century B.C. It is one of the fifteen books of the Khuddaka-Nikaya and it is made up of some 423 verses arranged by topic into 26 chapters. These verses are descriptions of the way to live, the life of meditation and the practice of reason and intelligence. There are many exhortations to cast off craving and orient yourself towards enlightenment. It is not just a book of morality, it seeks to go further than that. Luckily the verses are easy to read and to memorize, and the many translations have given the Dhammapada worldwide popularity, representing for Buddhism what the Bhagavad Gita is for Hinduism and the Tao Te Ching is for Taoism.
Because people you are hypnotizing generally toggle among stages of consciousness in any given hypnotherapy session, most will have the experience of only remembering some of the things the hypnotherapist has said. People often believe that they remember everything but, actually remember very little.
As you are standing there looking into the water, you begin to think of all the different things I have said, but there are too many for you to try and remember. So, I want you to take them and put them in your picnic basket. After you have placed them in your basket, put the basket in the water and just let it float away. You don't have to remember everything I have said. Your thoughts are safe in your basket. Your mind is now clear. Again, notice the peaceful feeling that you have.
Your mind will be like a soft, absorbent sponge and everything you concentrate on you will absorb like a sponge. When you want to remember that which you have concentrated on, you will squeeze your mind like a sponge and you will remember everything you have concentrated on.
I use more relaxation of the nerve and muscle fibers in the area of the pain for tension headaches, and have found cooling the head and warming the hands useful for migraine headache pain. To help patients learn this feeling of cooling the head and warming the hands, I tell them to actually put themselves in that situation, to imagine putting ice packs around the head, and to place their hands in warm water and memorize the sensations. Self-hypnosis will thereby enable them to reproduce this at another time.
Hypnosis is perfectly natural and, as I just mentioned, it is also widely used and accepted. You are not asleep or in a trance, you are just very relaxed. You are not under my power. You will only do what is in your personal comfort zone, moral code, or value system. You are still you, just very relaxed. You will remember everything and will feel relaxed during and after hypnosis.
Although some have debated the interpretation and relevance of experimental research on hypnosis and memory (American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, 1995), in their analysis of recovered memories of abuse Pope & Brown (1996) considered that 'because hypnotic technique can enhance suggestibility and lead to the development of pseudomemories in some individuals, its use as a memory enhancement or memory-retrieval strategy seems questionable at best' (p. 59). The importance of understanding the processes involved, as well as the possible risks
All those years of worrying, the wakeful nights, the expensive books, the pain of memorizing everything useless, senseless The top student jumps up. He fights for the fruits of those painful years his high grades which are about to be completely forgotten. The professor smiles. You are now going from the seminar room out into real life. There you won't be asked whether you have carefully analyzed Plato, but whether you can be a useful member of the State in the sense of the platonic polis. Hardly any of you will have occasion in his profession to work with tangents and pi's. Forget the rules and laws--but never forget that you have had the opportunity, through the laws of mathematics, to glimpse the great universal laws and remember that these laws are valid even where we do not yet have formulas. Forget the sentences that you had to memorize but remember that their meaning has now become second nature to you. It is in the forgetting of the mechanical process that...
When talking to people or in front of a group of people, you will feel a tremendous and powerful concentration power. You will remember everything with ease, and you will talk with ease. Your throat and chest will be relaxed, and you will feel free of all dryness and choking sensations.
W Buddhism seems always to have suffered a surfeit of sutras. Even in the centuries when the teachings were maintained only in memory, it appears that no one monk was expected to remember everything we find reference to 'reciters of the middle-length discourses.' With the explosion of Mahayana sutra writing about four centuries after the Buddha's death, the problem of a surplus of sutras was greatly compounded. A remedy was attempted in the form of the anthology. The first of these is attributed to the Indian master, Nagarjuna (second century C.E.). Entitled Compendium of Sutras, it consists of passages from sixty-eight, mostly Mahayana, sutras. The history of anthologies in the West began in 1871 when Samuel Beal, who described himself as 'a Chaplain in Her Majesty's Fleet,' published A Catena of Buddhist Scriptures from the Chinese. This book included a wide variety of Buddhist texts - for the most part Indian works
The dharma master was from the Zhou clan of Jinyun. His mother was of the Luo clan. Once she dreamed that she journeyed to Dinghu Peak, where a jade maiden gave her a blue lotus blossom Even at seven years old, Kang did not speak. Prognosticators thought it very strange. Once his mother took him to Lingshan Monastery. Directing him to the Buddha hall, she said, 'When you reverence the Buddha, don't be hasty.' To which he replied, 'Who wouldn't be reverent towards our Lord Buddha Sakyamuni ' After this episode, his mother and father looked upon him with even greater respect and awe. Ultimately, they allowed him to leave home as a novice monk. By age fifteen he had perfectly memorized five scriptures, including the Lotus and Surangama Sutras. Later he set off for Jiaxiang Monastery in Kuaiji to study the Vinaya codes.
In an earlier chapter, I made the statement that being a good hypnotist meant utilizing certain tools and skills that helped to direct the individual toward their own resources and then get the hell out of their way My experience has been, however, that most hypnotists consistently get in the individual's way and prevent the hypnotic state. Therapists, in their attempt to learn the right way of inducing the hypnotic state, go from one hypnosis seminar to another, and from one magic book to another, in order to get THE MAGIC WORDS that will make people go into a hypnotic state. They write THE MAGIC WORDS down, memorize them, and attempt to hypnotize everyone with those words. When their patients clients refuse to cooperate, these therapists get discouraged and either give up using hypnosis, or buy more MAGIC BOOKS and attend more seminars to find THE REAL MAGIC WORDS. In short, these hypnotists are attempting to bend the patient client to fit the mold, instead of designing the molds...
This information is always available and when you are ready to use one of these learned facts, out it comes. One points out that the patient does mot have to remember everything she has heard. She can remember some of the things now and less of them in an hour, and perhaps tomorrow not remember any of the things that have been said. That is all right. She should have confidence in her own subconscious ability and realize that the material will be stored to be utilized when necessary. In this manner, amnesia has been pointed out in a way that she can accept. She might not want to forget what she has learned, but she might be willing to experience the new idea that maybe tomorrow I won't remember everything that was said, maybe next week I may not remember anything that was said. She is now giving herself positive suggestions and new ideas that have been presented on a permissive basis.
