We are cracking on with our theme of how to improve memory today, with this gentle process albeit a rather ambiguous one, there is little technique other than allowing your mind to create change in your own perception of yourself and belief in your memory and I have had a lot of anecdotal and subjective reports of the success with this technique to improve memory and recall.
This technique has no real strategy other than enhancing belief and sensation that the brain is developing its memory, which in turn affects your behaviour, thoughts and attitude. When you believe in your memory, it is very likely it’ll work more effectively. Belief will improve memory – that is our underpinning ethos here.
Six Steps To Penetrate Your Brain And Improve Memory With Self-Hypnosis
Step One: Induce Hypnosis.
You can do so by any means you desire or know of. You can use the process in my Science of self-hypnosis book, use the free audio we give away on this website to practice or have a look at the following articles as and when you need them; they are basic processes to help you simply open the door of your mind:
Heavy Arm Self-Hypnosis Induction Method
Using Eye Fixation for Self-Hypnosis
The Chiasson Self-Hypnosis Method
Hand to Face Self-Hypnosis Induction
Using Magnetic Hands for Self-Hypnosis
The Coin Drop Self-Hypnosis Induction
However, with this process, an induction is potentially too much activity, so I teach my clients how to adopt a hypnotic mindset and simply have a mindset that is positive and expectant. Again, to really understand the cognitive set of the hypnotic mindset, go grab a copy of my Science of self-hypnosis book where it is explained in simple but comprehensive terms.
Once you have induced hypnosis, or just adopted the hypnotic mindset, move on to the next step.
Step Two: Imagine yourself in a place in nature. It can be a favourite place, or a place you create, a place you imagine or someone you have actually been to. Engage with this place by noticing the sounds; those that are near and far, sounds from yourself too. Notice the sights, the colours, the details, the shades of light and enjoy feeling safe, secure and at peace in this place.
Create this environment and enjoy being in this place.
Tell yourself that engaging with this place continues to deepen your hypnosis.
When you have really engaged in this place, move on to the next step.
Step Three: Now imagine a coloured beam of light coming from the sky. Perhaps from beyond the clouds, or from beyond the sky, notice it emerging from way beyond your furthest level of perception. Let the light be a colour that you associate with memory enhancement and a healthy mind. It is a beam of light that moves closer and closer towards you and it is unusual to notice such a thing happening. This is hypnotic time you are in and so you watch the beam of light travelling toward you.
Observe the light and get a real sense of it as it beams all the way to your forehead. As you imagine it getting closer to your forehead, notice the sensation as you anticipate it arriving and touching your forehead.
Then feel that unusual light beaming in through your forehead and into your brain. Get a sense of it covering the surface of your brain at first, then soaking in to the deepest depths of every part of your brain. Get a sense of and imagine a soothing, enhancing sensation moving and spreading through your mind and your brain, like it is connecting with the millions of synapses in your brain, enlivening them.
As this happens, continue to tell yourself that you are going deeper, and then when you have developed a notable sensation of some kind, move on to the next step.
Step Four: Spend some time now imagining the light is improving blood flow to the brain. You can feel oxygen enriched blood moving through, if you focus deeply, you may even detect its sound and movement.
As that happens, imagine the circulation speeding up in the brain and all those connections in the brain becoming more efficient and effective in all the right ways that get your brain improving the memory function. Trust it to improve memory.
Tune in and really let happen whatever you imagine needs to happen for you to believe your memory and brain functioning is improving. Interpret this in your own creative way and enjoy the process.
Take all the time necessary to notice and feel convinced of the changes occurring in your brain, then move on to the next step.
Step Five: Build your belief now. Let the sensations become undeniably convincing that your memory is being advanced and enhanced. That you are adding memory capacity for sure…
When you are sure you can sense that some real benefit has happened to your memory functioning, start to think about the things that are going to be different in your life from now on. Perhaps think of some areas of your life that are going to benefit from this advancement of your memory, and even imagine watching yourself in a particular scenario in your life when your memory is serving you incredibly effectively.
Once you have spent enough time doing this, move on to the final step.
Step Six: Exit hypnosis. Take a good, deep, energising breath, wiggle your fingers and toes and open your eyes.
Practice this process repeatedly and enjoy that sensation, then start to notice how your behaviour and thoughts are affected by knowing your memory is improving.
