the method of storage and retrieval of information in the brain - the
most fundamental key to learning.
subconscious mind can call to mind everything that's happened within your
range of awareness, whether it be remembrance of a past event, where a
misplaced item is, studied subject matter, names, addresses, numbers or any
information needed at a specific time for a specific reason. Our
methods help; forgetting is reduced, names, dates and numbers are
remembered, and a lot of frustration is avoided.
The Three Types of
memory: the recall of your senses: includes functions like seeing,
smelling, feeling, hearing and tasting. It is necessary to train
our brains to enjoy and function in full awareness of our
skill memory: retaining information about how to perform physical
activities like riding a bicycle, driving a car, swimming, dancing,
etc. A big skill - that needs constant practice.
of words, ideas and concepts: the most important and complex capacity
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 reducing the focus
to fitting details. The power of association and creativity is an
important tool for memory development.

Many of the
skills of the HypnoCounselor, including creative visualization, metaphor,
life reframing, and direct suggestion, to mention a few, are used to help
reach the balanced state of calm and relaxation so essential for the
successful management of stress. The Key word is balanced!
relaxed mind-set will help the student's performance in school.
Improved study habits need to be addressed in conjunction with the stress
reduction. Confidence in the tools that a student used assists in
confidence of subject matter and retention. It is appropriate to
determine the deficiencies in the student's study habits and reach a clear
understanding of which skills need improving. Like all skills practice is
needed. During the hypnosis session, positive patterns of study
behavior that will be used to replace the negative habits are reinforced.
Continued reinforcement is critical to attaining an enhanced learning
experience. Performance and stress a kind of Ping-Pong Game. Performance
is closely linked with stress: stress can both interfere with good
performance as well as be the result of bad performance.
We need to
keep sight of this belief in our focus. Sometimes it is difficult to
make a distinction as to which source of stress came first: the
dread of not performing well or merely not performing well.
The skill and habits associated with the performance need to be a top
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, stereo, interruptions by
family and friends, or telephone, pager or computer contact.) There
are two arena's of thought on this - one school says distractions enhance
the power to stay focused. I think it depends on the individual and
what works best.

best to leave the study area for a break. A five minute break every
half-hour can improve your concentration and make learning easier. Soft
background music or sounds can enhance the learning environment.
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.

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. Each individual
has their own personal concepts of what a reward is - we need to spend
time discovering an individual's personal motivational concepts.
What are the rewards that we want for ourselves! Often we do not
even know what motivates us. Here at MSI we focus on the
positives. And... through careful examination we eliminate many

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. 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! This
is a great and extremely effective strategy. It is "Whole"
learning involving every facet of our entire being. What could be
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. Learning becomes
more vivid and real to you. Create a "Flow" experience as
you learn. 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!
provides the tools to understand these processes and develop the
individual's ability to adapt whatever they do that does not bring them

Linguistic Programming is the study of how each individual makes sense of
his/her world uniquely through different personality patterns and sensory
person's memories, beliefs, values, decisions, favored sense (Visual,
Auditory, or Kinesthetic), and what are called Metaprograms, develop over
time into a unique 'model of the world'. Each of us uses this internal map
and our own modalities to make sense of the world around us.
This map has a profound effect on our thoughts and behaviors, and our
relationships with others because we tend to think that our map is the
same as everybody else's. We need to widen our scope of the world
and realize everyone's patterns are unique to themselves. We need to
understand these patterns to learn and also to use in our

patterns that inhibit us (and change them); by understanding the structure
of someone else's map we can assist them in doing the same thing, or use
it to improve our relationship with them, whether in a business or

that provide positive self-talk and continue to increase our focus and
reaffirm our personal goals. Some typical study habit affirmations

Can HypnoCounseling Help? YES! Low self esteem
detracts from learning; so does lack of motivation, bad study habits, poor
memory, the absence of reward, and fear. Hypno-Counseling 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. Our methods replace the negative with positives and build on
all the resources that each individual has as their own!!
