How to Pass Exams and Develop a Powerful Memory

Do you need help with passing exams?

Perhaps you are one of the millions who suffer from exam nerves and stress. Hypnotherapy can help with memory enhancement and improvement as well as study motivation and the general stress and pressure of being a student.

General Information on Hypnosis for Memory and Exam Success

Research on hypnosis as a tool to directly improve memory is mixed, but there is no doubt that these techniques can provide invaluable aids to study and memory skills in many indirect ways.

Exam success and confidence in preparing for exams can often seem to depend as much on your state of mind as on academic knowledge. Imagine if you approached every exam confident, focused, relaxed and with a clear mind.

Imagine what you could achieve!

Revision, essay deadlines and general study pressure can all mount up to cause worry and stress - and then there's the exams themselves. Passing exams often seems to be as much about testing your temperament as your knowledge.

Some people seem to be able to pass exams or remember all kinds of facts and figures without putting in a substantial amount of work and guess what? It's not because of the amount of brain cells they're carrying around in their head - it's just that they are able to use their mind in a relaxed, confident and organised way in order to achieve exam success.

Hypnosis for exam skills, hypnosis for memory improvement and hypnosis for what is becoming known as general student stress, are all easily accessible, whether you need help with A levels, GCSEs, university finals or any other academic issue.

Exam stress and poor memory represent two very common reasons for clients seeking hypnotherapy. Learning self-hypnosis and working on powerful self suggestions can certainly help with preparing for exams in terms of study and revision.

Concentration and Focus

Three Tips for Focus and Concentration Improvement

Focus and concentration are powerful things. When you are able to focus your energy, you can bring about any result you want. You can manifest anything. When you focus and concentrate your energy on a goal, you automatically begin thinking about it and taking steps towards it. The more focused you are, the faster you will be able to achieve it. Just think what you could accomplish with a little focus and concentration improvement.

Use your imagination to connect your emotions to your actions. Let’s say you have to study for some kind of exam and it’s a subject you have absolutely zero interest in. Your mind naturally wanders to something else that you are interested in, something that makes you feel better so you aren’t so bored. Maybe it’s a movie you enjoyed recently. So what you do is imagine the actors in that movie are acting out or just saying the words of whatever it is you’re studying. You’ve livened up the topic and you’re going to remember what you’re studying.

Add some music. Want to move a piece of information from short-term memory to long-term memory? Try singing it as you repeat it. For example, you need to memorize a phone number so you look it up. Sing the number five or six times and it will stick with you much longer than if you just repeat it. Add in a few dance moves as well and you’ll really make it stick.

When you have trouble focusing your mind, try journaling. Getting into the habit of writing about your thoughts ever day will help you see what your mind is focusing on so you can put the focus where you want it to be.

How To Improve Concentration Using Hypnosis

Knowing how to improve concentration is vital when you want to perform at your best, study a new topic or pay close attention to someone or something. Luckily you can improve concentration in the same way you can become fitter or stronger by going to the gym.

Hypnosis is a useful tool in teaching you how to improve concentration. To achieve a natural deeply relaxed state, you gradually narrow your focus of attention and turn your attention inwards, teaching yourself to concentrate and focus.

A simple hypnosis technique to achieve a deeply relaxed state and to improve concentration is the “Body Scan” exercise.

1. Lie down in a warm, comfortable position, with your arms by your side. Take a moment or two to settle down your body and adjust your position, maybe aligning your back or stretching out your legs, until you are truly comfortable.

2. Focus all your attention on one leg, quieting down your awareness of other parts of your body. It doesn’t matter if it’s your right or left leg, just chose one leg for now. Move all your attention to that leg and as you become aware of the pressure of the leg on the mat or the mat on the leg, use your internal voice to say “my leg is incredibly heavy” three times, slowly and calmly.

3. Now change your focus of attention and become aware of the whole body. Starting at the toes, imagine a warming, comforting coating or energy moving gently up from your toes over your ankles and spreading gently over your calves and shins. Allow this “body scan” to progress at your own speed up over the legs onto the belly, back, neck and finally over your face until your whole body is warm and relaxed.

4. Similar to step 2, focus on the opposite leg, and narrowing your attention down to this leg only repeat “my leg is incredibly heavy” three times, slowly and calmly.

5. Repeat step 3, with the full body scan. Maybe you imagine an orange or red glow warming up your body, or maybe some other colour, what ever is right for you and allows you to relax more deeply.

6. Similar to step 2 and 4, now focus on both legs, and this time repeat “my legs are incredibly heavy” three times.

7. Repeat the body scan.

8. Go back to step 2, this time focussing on one arm and repeat “my arm is incredibly heavy” three times, slowly and calmly. Repeat the body scan.

9. By now, you’ve probably got the idea :>) Move onto your other arm, do a body scan and then focus on both arms together. This whole process may take you anything from 8 to 15 minutes if you are going at a calm, relaxed pace. Repeat the whole exercise again if you have time, or wish to deepen your relaxation.

Focussing your mind and reducing mental chatter helps to improve concentration. Use hypnosis to teach you how to improve concentration, enabling you to perform at your best, study a new topic or pay closer attention to someone or something.

Public Speaking

Using Hypnosis for Fear of Public Speaking

If the thought of standing up in front of a group of people and giving a talk turns your knees to jelly, you are not alone. Many people also have a fear of public speaking. The worst thing is if you have to give a speech and just cannot get out of it. All those eyes upon you while you tremble with a dry mouth and shaking voice. It seems at that moment that nothing is more embarrassing. So what can you do? You might consider using hypnosis for your fear of public speaking. It’s safe and natural, and very easy.

Why do you have a fear of public speaking in the first place? Well, somewhere along the line you’ve learned to invoke the fight or flight response whenever you’re in a public speaking situation. What you have to do is somehow un-learn that response. You can do it through cognitive behavioral therapy, or you can use certain medications that help you relax, but why bother when there’s a faster and easier method that has no side effects?

Hypnosis allows you to break down the barrier between your conscious and unconscious minds. You can get into your unconsciousness, where your fears are stored to see why you are afraid of public speaking. You can learn how to use deep breathing to trigger a relaxation response so that you stay calm and cool in public speaking situations. By using hypnosis for fear of public speaking, you can learn how to feel relaxed and refreshed all of the time, especially when speaking to groups of people.

Tips to Increase Your Public Speaking Confidence

Cat got your tongue? Most people become completely tongue tied and suffer a complete case of memory loss when it comes to public speaking. Anxiety and nerves take over and all intelligent thought leaves. The majority of people are not aware that they probably go through the day breathing all wrong! Learning to breathe correctly, and deeply during anxious times, can be used as an instant calming technique. Proper breathing merely entails inhaling from the nose and exhaling from the mouth. Since we don't pay attention to our breathing, in the beginning you will find this taxing. You might even catch yourself inhaling through the mouth and then suddenly try to breathe through the nose. Exhale, relax and start again.

Taking deep breaths prior to your speaking engagement will actually calm your entire body. It will give you a chance to compose your mind and thoughts before speaking. Breathe in, breathe out. Do this five times and let your body go completely limp. This anxiety-relieving practice will loosen tense muscles, calm your racing heart and enable you to focus on the matter at hand.

Another way to build your confidence is good old fashioned preparation. The key here is the first three letters - pre, meaning before. Prepare for public speaking engagement at least a day before will lessen anxiety. If you go into this knowing ahead what you will be speaking about, you will be less likely to panic when it's "showtime". Consider using index cards and writing down the topic of each part of your speech on an individual card. On the back of a card that is labeled, for example, "productivity", you might list several points you want to discuss such as "increasing productivity", "combating low productivity" and so on. These cue cards will enable you to relax, concentrate and enjoy public speaking with confidence!

Procrastination

Using Hypnosis For Overcoming Procrastination

Have you ever avoided doing something so long that it started nagging at you? Procrastination really just doubles your problems because you have the thing you need to do, and you have the stress and anxiety of avoiding it. It just makes sense to face whatever it is you have to do and just do it…but how? If you are a habitual procrastinator, using hypnosis for overcoming procrastination could be the answer for you.

Some people seem to get so many things done effortlessly, while others can’t seem to get past the first thing on their list. And then you run up against an unpleasant task, so you start avoiding it. Maybe you have a deadline, but you just keep pushing that task away until suddenly the deadline is here, and you’re under even more stress than before. Every time this happens, you tell yourself it will be the last. You’ll get organized, you’ll get things done, you won’t wait until the last minute…but you just can’t seem to follow through.

If you’ve never considered using hypnosis for overcoming procrastination, you may be skeptical. What you may not know is that hypnosis is actually a deep state of relaxation in which you are very aware, not asleep. Everyone can be hypnotized and it’s completely safe. You are never out of control of yourself and you are aware of what you are doing. While under hypnosis, you can use phrases like, “Procrastination is a thing of the past,” and “You are now the type of person that completes what you start” to change the way you go about things. You can use hypnosis to overcome your procrastination.

Self Belief

How to Believe in Yourself: It’s Easier than You Think

You might think it’s the lack of opportunity, you might think it’s your parents’ fault, but in reality, the number one thing standing between you and your dreams is the fact that you don’t believe in yourself. Luck and the kindness of strangers will only take you so far. If you want to reach your goals, you have to learn how to believe in yourself.

It really doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. No matter what odds you’re up against, you will succeed if you believe in yourself. You can’t depend upon anyone else to make it happen; you are the only one can walk your path. If you think you’re going to fail, you probably will. But if you change your thinking around, you can achieve anything.

If you have low self-esteem, believing in yourself is a tough leap to make and you might want to get some help. A good way to do this is to find a mentor. It could be your boss, someone in your community, or maybe an older friend or family member. You can be casual in your approach or you can ask them more formally, explaining why you chose them and what you’re looking for. Most people would be flattered!

Have you ever heard the saying “Do one thing every day that scares you?” Taking risks is an important part of learning how to believe in yourself. Even if you start out taking one tiny risk each day, you’re making baby steps that will increase as your belief in yourself increases. Think of one thing you’ve always wanted to do and just do it! Remember this: there is no such thing as mistakes. Every misstep you make is a learning opportunity.

Fear of Failure: Don’t Let it Rule Your Life

Just about everyone has a fear of failure to one degree or another. We are a society in which failure is one of the worst things imaginable. We attach so much of our self-worth to success, so failing at something—anything—makes us feel like we have no value. Many of us feel that when we fail, other people feel sorry for us, and there’s nothing worse than pity. We may tell ourselves that failure brings us one step closer to success or that we are learning from our mistakes, but those pithy words of wisdom don’t erase the stigma of failure.

Every situation we find ourselves in, both good and bad, can be a learning experience, but unless we truly feel that in our hearts, it doesn’t matter what we tell ourselves about failure.

Some of us fear failure because we have unrealistic expectations for our lives. We have a great need to feel that we are better than others; we certainly need to feel better about ourselves anyway. A fear of failure undermines that good feeling, that need to be better than anyone else. And it’s also unrealistic. No matter how well you do something, there is always someone else who can do it better. The chances of us being the very best in the world at something are very, very slim. And if you feel that you HAVE to be the best, you’re just setting yourself up for failure.

We must find a way to break the destructive cycle that fear of failure causes. We have to realize that failure is a natural part of life, and the only way to completely avoid failure is to not try, and that’s no way to live. Once we come to accept failure as just a step in the process, we will be able to be rid of that paralyzing fear.

Tips for Overcoming Fear Of Success

Do you ever feel like something is holding you back – only to realize that that something is yourself? Do you find that you ‘get in your own way’ and even denounce your achievements and accomplishments; seeking ways in which you can denigrate yourself enough to lose what you've gained – which in turn leads you to falter, waver, and eventually lose your momentum? If so, chances are that you’ve got a fear of success. While it may sound like a strange idea, it is a problem that affects many people and ensures that achievement is always just beyond their grasp. If you suffer from it, overcoming fear of success can give you a new lease of life and help you achieve all the good things you deserve.

Through simple techniques, hypnosis can help you redefine your ideas of success, realize with greater clarity what success really means to you and motivate you to achieve that success. Overcoming fear of success will help you achieve in every area of your life, restoring your confidence and providing you with the motivation to aim ever higher.

Overcoming fear of success will help you shed the negative beliefs that you are undeserving of all the good things and recognition that come your way. You will then be able to rid yourself of the guilt, confusion and anxiety you currently feel when you do achieve success. Once you have conquered this fear, you will find yourself leading a more fulfilling, enriched life.

Assertiveness

Learn how to be More Assertive: Tips You Can Use Right Now

How to be more assertive is actually quite easy once you know what to say. Assertive communication is based on three things:

1) you summarize the other person’s behavior,
2) you let the other person know how you feel about it, and
3) you make a request on how the other person can specifically change that behaviour.

For example, a co-worker keeps parking in your designated space. You respond by saying, “When you park in my space (part 1) I feel frustrated because I have to go hunting for another spot and that makes me late for work (part 2). I need you to not park in my space (part 3). Remember these key words: state facts, feelings, and requirements.

Another key to learning assertive communication is calmness and clarity. You don’t call names or accuse the other person of anything insidious. Focusing on your feelings will help you to achieve your requirements and get a positive response from the person, rather than an aggressive response. If necessary, practice what you have to say in the mirror or with a friend or family member until you feel comfortable. Few people like confrontation, but it’s important to stand up for yourself and it will become easier the more you do it.

The attainable key to assertive communication is staying calm and sounding confident, even when you don't feel it 100%. This can be practised at a deep level using hypnosis, to condition your mind and body to having a positive experience of being assertive. Practising assertive communication using hypnosis allows you to visualise what it would be like to stay calm, even when someone tries to put you down, and continue getting your point across.

You can learn how to be more assertive. It may require you to come out of your comfort zone and communicate in ways you never have before, but you’ll find that the benefits are enormous. You won’t feel like a doormat anymore and your self-esteem will increase, too, because your taking positive steps for yourself.

Is a Fear of Confrontation Running Your Life?

People who have a fear of confrontation are almost deathly afraid of any kind of conflict. We’d all like to have life go along smoothly with everyone getting along. Unfortunately, though, that isn’t always the case. Disagreements and arguments pop up from time to time as a natural part of life. The thought of a little spat can send some people into a cold sweat, and their anxiety about confrontations can keep them from having relationships and achieving their dreams.

And this isn’t as uncommon as you may think. Anywhere from 20-50% of all people fear confrontation in varying degrees.

A fear of confrontation is about one thing: control. You want to be in control to such a degree that you can’t deal with someone else disagreeing with you. Or you’ve felt rejected—which causes a feeling of loss of control-- by someone in a confrontation at some point in your life so you do everything you can to avoid having that unpleasant feeling again.

It’s ok to want to get along with people, but a fear of confrontation gets out of control when you can’t stand up for yourself. For example, you’re in an abusive relationship and you accept the abuse rather than confront your abuser. Or someone takes credit for work you’ve done on your job and you keep quiet about it just to keep the peace. In the end, you just feel trapped and frustrated.

But you can end your fear of confrontation, and hypnosis can help. Hypnosis allows you to reprogram your mind so that you no longer have your fear. You are able to stay relaxed and focused in a confrontation, and respond rationally rather than freezing up.

Emotional Intelligence

Tips on How to Increase Emotional Intelligence

We all know what I.Q. is and how it’s used to measure success in school, but did you know there is a different kind of predictor for success in life? It’s called emotional intelligence, or E.Q., and many experts believe it’s far more important than I.Q. Emotional intelligence is our ability to identify our feelings, as well as others’ feelings, and to manage those emotions well. You can use the following tips as a guide on how to increase your emotional intelligence.

Language is a powerful thing, and one of the most important tools in learning how to increase your emotional intelligence. If you use words that describe what you’re doing in the moment, you increase your sense of identity. Instead of feeling something, like anger, and identifying it later by saying “I was angry,” try to stay clued in to what you’re feeling all the time. Take a moment to identify your anger as it’s happening and say to yourself, “I am angry.” It’s a small difference, but very powerful in helping you raise your E.Q.

Another important step in learning how to increase your emotional intelligence is to see yourself as an active participant in your life, rather than a victim. It’s easy to believe that someone else caused something to happen to us or made us feel a certain way, and much more difficult to take responsibility for our feelings and actions. Think about kids: so many times you hear kids say something like “She made me mad so I hit her.” As adults, we have to get out of that frame of mind and take responsibility by saying, “I am mad at her for what she said to me.” It’s not always easy to turn around our way of thinking, but the rewards are enormous.

Motivation

How To Overcome A Lack Of Motivation At Work

It happens to all of us at some stage – there is a particular task to be done at work and you just can’t motivate yourself to do it. This procrastination or downright disinterest can lead to stress levels soaring. While you know that you are capable of doing a good – even great – job, your energy and enthusiasm just aren’t there. Lack of motivation at work can be highly unpleasant and may even jeopardize your chances of career success.

Put simply, motivation is the force that makes us do things. Motivation is an essential life skill – it is what inspires us to complete a task. Since so many of us derive at least part of our sense of identity from our jobs, lack of motivation at work can be crippling and lead to low self-esteem and even quite severe depression as those suffering it miss the sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that comes from doing a job to the best of one’s ability.

Of course, true motivation comes from deep inside us. When it comes from the core of our being, we are fully involved in setting goals and achieving them. In order to achieve greater satisfaction and enjoy a more fulfilling work life, we need to get in touch with our core selves and remove the obstacles that are holding us back at a fundamental level. Hypnosis is a proven and effective way to overcome a lack of motivation at work and help people achieve perform optimally.

Interview

Using Hypnosis for Job Interview Anxiety

For many people, the very thought of a job interview can cause an attack of the nerves: butterflies in the stomach, dry mouth, and weak knees. Sometimes, the thought of a job interview can even trigger a panic attack. If this happens to you, you might be interested in some tips on using hypnosis for job interview anxiety.

If the thought of a job interview makes you nervous, you have what is called anticipatory anxiety, and it is very common. Many people have it over all sorts of situations. You need to try to relax and calm down, and there are several ways to do this. First, make sure you are completely prepared for the interview. Have your clothes picked out, any materials you are bringing ready, and make sure you get a good night’s sleep beforehand. Also remember that life goes on after the interview, so try to keep it all in perspective. You should also practice some deep breathing exercises, breathing from the diaphragm and not your chest. This will trigger a relaxation response that will soon become second nature to you.

Now, if you do all of these things and you still feel nervous, you might want to consider using hypnosis for your job interview anxiety. Hypnosis is really no more than a way to get into a deeply relaxed state, during which you are able to access your unconscious mind, where your fears and anxiety are stored. You will be able to replace any negative thoughts you are having about your job interview with positive thoughts. As a result, you will find that your anxiety over the interview is greatly relieved, if not completely gone. You will feel relaxed, refreshed, and much more confident in yourself and your abilities.
