The Psychology Of Memory

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...

Memory Technique

Read through material for the first time. 2. Review the material for five minutes, 10 minutes later. 3. Review the material the week later for approximately three minutes. 4. Review the material one month later again for three minutes. 5. Finally review material six months later for about three minutes. Now although most information is forgotten immediately after reading, there is some evidence to suggest that memory actually improves for about two to five minutes after learning something. This...

Part Seven

I thought it was about time I returned to the subject of hypnosis and dealt with some important aspects in more detail. The tape that accompanies this month release is a self-hypnotic tape which does not contain any specific message. It is intended for you to use whenever you wish to implant a suggestion of your own choosing. There is a period of time allowed, after the induction process has taken place, for you to use your own affirmation. After this time the tape will bring you back to full...

Longevity

This months release is closely connected to last months. Obviously to live a long life it makes sense that you probably have to be at least aware of your state of health and how you feel. Having said that we have all heard stories of people who drink a bottle of whisky and smoke sixty cigarettes a day living to eighty. This is unusual but not unexplainable. I would suggest that these people have an unusually strong and resilient constitution and might have lived a good deal longer if they have...

Motivation

I would hope that whatever it is you want to achieve with the help of hypnosis it is something you really want and not just some kind of passing whim. The more you want to succeed then obviously the greater the success you will have. It is no use hypnotising yourself to become a brilliant snooker player if you don't really intend to go down to the pool hail several days a week. Why waste this great force within you and your precious time on something you don't really want. If you order your...

Can Hypnotism Be Used To Cause Harm

There are some very prestigious medical bodies from around the world who would like nothing better than legislate against the use of hypnosis other than by qualified therapists that have been properly trained and have medical qualifications or qualifications in psychotherapy. In the UK, Parliament passed the Hypnotism Act 1952 in which clause 2(1) states - No person shall give an exhibition, demonstration or performance of hypnotism on any living person at or in connection with an entertainment...

The I Can Factor

To succeed in life you need to have two things in good supply. A strong PSI and a strong I Can Factor. A strong PSI is the much more important of the two nevertheless you should aim to build up both if you really want to succeed. In this last section 1 want to touch on the subject of the I can factor. This is more usually known as the I can't factor. This is not the same as PSI or NSI although there are similarities and connections. PSI is to do with how we feel deep down about ourselves. How...

Your Memory

Whether you know it or not you possess a fantastic memory right now. Some of you might doubt this but I can assure you it's perfectly true. There are many reasons why people think that they have a poor memory but this is only because they haven't been told how the memory works. 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. Try to imagine for a moment...

How To Speed Up Your Reading

Before I start to teach you how to drastically speed up your reading we must first find out at what pace you read now. Most people are normally categorised as either slow, average, above average, and fast readers. What I want you to do is find an ordinary book, preferably a hard back because it will make things easier. Now I want you to find a page to begin reading from and read for exactly one minute. Use a timer of some sort. Make sure you read in your normal fashion. Don't try to speed it up...

Key Words And Phrases

Next to each goal you have written out select a key word or phrase which sums up what it is you are striving for. In the example above you might write Wonderful House or just House. Once you have read out each goal you should sit back and close your eyes and go into a trance for a few moments and visualise yourself enjoying the fruits of your goals. Key words or phrases are a good way to encapsulate everything you have written out in your goal. Your subconscious will fill in the rest. If you...

How To Build a Strong PSI

I hope you realise that it vitally important that everyone should aim to have the highest PS I possible. If you are a parent it should be one of your goals in life to ensure your children get plenty of encouragement, Love, and praise ,especially in their early years. As you know the level and depth of our respect and love for ourselves is related to what happens to us in our formative years. It can take a little time to rebuild a PSI particularly if you have a tarnished and tattered one to...

Imagination

The subconscious is where our imagination is housed. Our imagination is governed to some extent by our early life experiences. Our upbringing and experiences as children are of vital importance to the way we perceive ourselves later in life. Our imagination is coloured by those experiences. Imagination is a very useful tool when programming the subconscious. There is an interesting theoretical experiment I came across many years ago used to describe how our conscious minds cannot overrule our...

Meditation and Why You Should Practise It

Meditation and Your Biological Age - Meditation Self Hypnosis is with out doubt one of the best ways to reduce the negative effects of stress on the system. The problem with stress is that the body reacts to it extremely quickly so it is hard to counter it consciously before some of the harmful chemicals have been produced in the brain. Studies have shown that the levels of adrenaline and other substances associated with a stress triggered response are markedly lower in people who habitually...

Putting It All Together

Goal setting works best if you set aside about ten to fifteen minutes each morning to go through the different stages. You may to set your alarm a bit earlier. This is why you don't want to set yourself too many goals at any one time, it takes too long and tends to water down the effectiveness of the process. You will need to be alone so that you will not be disturbed. Perhaps you will have to leave for work a bit earlier, you can use these techniques away from home in your car or at the...

Relaxation Exercises

What follows is not a specific Hypnotic technique but merely a very simple relaxation exercise. It is very very simple but extremely effective at calming you down and relieving tension. Don't be fooled by its apparent simplicity. Without going into all the physical details this little exercise alone can greatly help you reduce much muscular tension in the shoulders and neck and will help relax you ready for going into a trance. Sit comfortably on a stool or low backed chair. Now take ten slow...

The Importance of Goal Setting

Setting goals is a way of crystallising your aims and desires in life. It makes you sit down and think about what it is you are striving for. What's important to you. There have been so many books written about this subject so I don't want to go on and on about it here. However because this is such an important area, if you are at all serious about improving your life, I must say a few words on the subject. If you have never come across goal setting then you...

The Scientific Nature of Hypnosis

Until about 1952 hypnosis was thought to be a type or form of sleep. It was not possible to get any concrete evidence as to what went on in the human brain during hypnosis until the electroencephalograph, or EEG for short, was used in research. What an EEG does is record the regular electrical pulses emanating from the brain on a graph. Research into the nature of sleep has shown that we each go through five main stages of sleep. When we start to doze off to sleep we emit high amplitude waves...

The Induction

Induction simply means the change from the waking alert state into the daydreaming one. As I have said there are a large number of ways it is possible to do this and we will go into them in detail at a later date. By the way am not referring to the mystical or weird and wonderful ways like crystal balls, swinging watches, strobe lights etc. As you know by now the object of the exercise is to allow your conscious mind to concentrate on something so as to allow your subconscious mind to filter...

Natural Energy Fields

Western science has established that the earth has its own geomagnetic field. Taoists have been aware that the earth has an electromagnetic field for probably six thousand years or more. They considered the sky to be the positive pole (yang) and the earth to have negative or (Yin) polarity. The resultant electromagnetic field that is generated is known as Qi. In Qigong training we as human beings are taught how to interact with this power. You learn how to harmonise the frequency of your own...

Dont Look Back Look Forward

Before we get started there is one thing I will mention. It has some bearing on what I said earlier. Sometimes people are very bitter and angry about their past. They feel a lot of resentment towards a parent or an ex-spouse or whatever. This state is sometimes called acting the Victim. Unfortunately anger is a very destructive emotion. It eats away at you inside. It occupies valuable areas of the mind that would be better employed making your life worthwhile and meaningful. know this is much...

The Power Of Hypnosis

Hypnosis is probably one of the most misunderstood phenomenon in our lives today. Hypnosis has long been associated with mumbo-jumbo, occult and sinister mystery men bent on controlling your mind. Despite the proof that exists about the remarkably positive effects of Hypnosis it is widely shunned and ignored by many people. There are many reasons for this not least the recent spate of TV programmes showing stage hypnotists making ordinary members of the audience look complete fools for our...

Hypnosis Or Meditation

If you read about the history of hypnosis in most books you will no doubt be told about Doctor Mesmer, among others, as being the forefather of Hypnosis. Of course there has been a great deal of speculation as to what Hypnosis really is and how it affects our consciousness. The idea that we in the west are responsible for discovering the power and techniques of Hypnosis is to my mind a little arrogant to say the least. If you think about it hypnotic induction is in essence simply a means of...

Qigong or Chi Kung

In China people have traditionally been taught to take responsibility for their health and Qigong practise has been an essential part of this practise for thousands of years. Qigong can be translated as energy working. Qigong was first mentioned during the reign of the yellow emperor some 4000 years ago. At that time it was stated that the Qigong techniques were in turn handed down to them by the anciens. So it is very hard to know for certain how long Qigong has been practised in china but it...

The Three Treasures

In Taoist philosophy we are all brought into this world empowered with the three treasures. Those who waste and abuse them will suffer sickness, disease and a short life. Those who learn how to enhance and nurture them will enjoy good health and a long life. The three treasures are as follows - Essence relates to our physical bodies, the blood, tissue, particularly our vital fluids like enzymes, hormones, etc. Energy was touched upon in last months release and relates to our life force which...

Hypnotic Induction Techniques

Last month I said that these days we no longer rely on gimmicks or paraphernalia in order to induce trances in people. Many experiments have shown that imaginary aids are much more effective. In one experiment one group of subjects where taught to induce a trance by staring at a crystal ball six inches away and slightly above their range of vision. When the same group where induced without a crystal ball they had problems and found it difficult. However when they where told to imagine looking...

Whats in a Name

Suppose you want to be able to remember peoples faces after only having met them once This techniques is widely used by business people and salesmen because they know it gives them a considerable edge when dealing with their customers. People are very flattered when you remember them particularly if you can also remember their name. It shows that you have made an effort on their part or thought them important enough to want to remember them. There are a number of characteristics that make up a...

Weight Loss

I have heard it said that many live on one-third of the food they eat and Doctors and diet organisations live on the other two-thirds. Most slimmers know that dieting nearly always brings about overeating. Weight goes down initially but soon shoots up again. The idea of living a life of deprivation and self denial is very difficult to accept for many people. Obesity can be a very difficult condition to cure as you can see from the numerous magazines available offering a multitude of diets and...

End of Sermon

I will to tell you about one of this century's most brilliant exponents of hypnosis. I also want to tell you how you can learn to read a book in only a matter of a few minutes, and a whole load of other incredible stuff The author and publisher of this material are NOT RESPONSIBLE in any manner for any injuries which may occur through reading or following the instructions in this material.Any reader who experiences discomfort from carrying out any of the exercises in this material should seek...

How to heal yourself by moving energy Qi around your body

Where the mind goes, Qi follows. When a certain part of the body is sick, use the mind to draw Qi to the affected area and it will correct the condition. Dr chang Rui, director of the imperial medical institute Sung Dynasty AD 1127- 1279. Anyone who has practised Qigong will have experienced the feeling of heat being generated within the body. Some mistakenly think that this heat is QL The feelings and sensations of heat are in actual fact an indication of Qi...

Moving Qi

In order to move Qi you must put your mental intention in front of it. In other words if you can sense Qi in your feet an calf area of your leg just gently let your mind go to the area around your knees and imagine you feel the sensation there. In a very short time you will feel the tingly feeling grow and move to this area. If you have a particular problem, say a stiff neck or pain in the shoulder, after a little while you can start to learn how to direct this energy to the area in pain....

You will learn

How you can develop the unique talents, powers, and abilities, that we all possess, to undreamed of heights. How to become rich and successful. and get anything you want from life. How you can increase your powers of concentration, memory, or physical stamina. How to control and eradicate any fears or phobias that spoil and disrupt your life and prevent you from enjoying your life to the full. For example fear of flying, fear of insects, of enclosed spaces, or whatever, the list goes on and on....

Warning

Before we go any further I want to discuss some aspects of Curative Hypnotherapy and go through some case studies to illustrate its importance. I chose to write out a possible Hypnotic script to help weight loss because many people seek help in this area. The problem is many clients come with the expressed desire to lose weight and consciously believe that their only problem is simply that they eat too much. They do not know nor have they given any thought as to why they are eating too much....

How To Find Out What You Really Want from Life

I will assume for the sake of argument that you do not have any pressing or urgent health problems that you need to be resolved. I would like you to write down on a piece of paper your answers to the following questions. If you don't think you have enough time to do it properly leave it until later when you do have the time. It only takes a few minutes but does require careful thought and consideration. 1. What five things do you value most in your life What five things would you strive for or...
