Learning And Reading


How Hypnosis Helps Learning And Reading

How many times have you read a paragraph or two, and said to yourself, I don’t have a clue what I just read. My guess is that most people will answer a lot. Most of the time this happens because of distractions around us. The radio, TV, kids, phones ringing, the list goes on and on. Sometimes even in complete silence our mind wanders to other thoughts than what we are reading or studying. The simple description of all the above is distraction.

Hypnosis can train the mind to focus on the project at hand, whether reading, listening to an instructor in a class, or hands on learning. Focus on the task at hand is like an expressway to the memory banks of the mind. The same as if you were to travel cross country and take the highway. You would encounter many stop signs, stop lights, and reduced speed limits along the way. By taking the expressway, you arrive at your destination much quicker. Your focus was getting from one point to another. In learning anything, your focus should be on absorbing the information and retaining it. Hypnosis will put you on the expressway. You’ll spend less time studying and have better recall of the things you’ve learned


How Hypnosis Helps Increase Reading Speed

To explain how we know hypnosis can increase a persons reading speed, I’d like to tell you the story of how we found out.

My wife is from out of state and we keep in touch with her family using email. We had just returned from a long day of class to become hypnotherapists and we went in to check our email. I was setting at the desk and my wife was behind me reading over my shoulder. I pulled up an email from one of her brothers and we both started to read it. When I reached the bottom of the writing , I scrolled the screen up. She tapped me on the shoulder and said she hadn’t finished what had been on the screen, please scroll back up. As any husband would do, I started to tease her about reading slower than myself. The next day , as we entered class, I asked the instructor if hypnosis could help a person read faster. She replied that reading faster was very easy with hypnosis and that during our practice sessions , give suggestions to your wife that each and every time she reads, she will read faster and faster, and remember what she read. Wanting to test the power of hypnosis, I did just that at the beginning of our 10 hour class. We covered many subjects that day and had pretty much forgotten about hypnosis for reading faster. That evening I again went to check our email, and as usual she followed. She was again standing, reading over my shoulder, as I pulled up an email from her other brother As I was reading, I got to about the middle of the screen when I heard her say O.K. I said O.K. what? She said I could scroll up. That’s when we remembered the reading suggestions I had given her. We looked at each other and said WOW. She had pretty much doubled her reading speed over night with one short session of hypnosis.

Focus is part of the path to reading faster along with changing the rules we are taught when we first learned to read. When we first started to read, we were told to put our finger under each word, and to read one word at a time. Later we were told we could take our finger away, but never told we could read more than one word at a time. We use hypnosis to change those old rules and allow our eyes and our mind to read and absorb the information as fast as our mind and eyes are capable of. As you look at this paragraph, your eyes can see each word, they can also see sentences, and the entire paragraph. Hypnosis will allow your eyes to do so. Your mind is faster than any computer in the world and can absorb the information faster than any computer. Suggestions during hypnosis will change the rules and allow your mind and your eyes to read faster and retain the information.

The paragraph below is a good example of how the mind works when reading.  You may think that you can't read it, but give it a try, you might be amazed.
