I'm really excited to have been given permission to include the following article by Jason Bartholemew of Law of Attraction Mastermind. I have been a subscriber and follower of Jason's content for quite some time now and he always has a new take on how to maximise your ability to manifest your dreams and turn them into reality! 

I asked Jason to reprint his article "Increase Your Memory by 300%" because as we find ourselves either at the tail end of semester we have an opportunity to take on new habits and skills that will help us going into next semester...okay, so Im a little early for next semester, but I like to be prepared!  Practising the following memory enhancement skills over the next few months in all aspects of your life will put you in a better position to increase your memory for study without having to consciously do so...it will have become automatic!

So... with no further adoo.... Please read on... you'll thank me for suggesting it, and Jason for giving it up so you can succeed!


Have you ever known someone who
seemed  to have a magnetic personality because they
could remember the tiniest details of your last
conversation?

There are people who  have such keen memories that they
can recite entire movies, lyrics of songs, and even
entire books.

   Can you imagine how valuable this kind of skill would
be? If you want to get started learning thier techniques,
I'm going to teach you a few simple strategies which you
can use to increase your memory by as much as 300%....

   The Nature of Memory

   When you hear a number or a name, do you have to repeat
it to yourself over and over and over to remember it? If so,
you're know that this is not the most efficient way to
memorize. This is because repetition is only one of the
 things which causes your mind to remember a piece of
information.

   People recall information which is repeated, because
the  brain considers it to be more relevant. It's that
simple. Considering this, it ought to be easy to memorize
information quickly if you can just find a quicker way of
letting your mind know that information is relevant.

   Three Ways to Make Information Relevant

   1. Emotional Context


   The first way to make information more relevant is by
embellishing it with a richer emotional context. If your
mind is a powerful emotional context to associate with a
piece of information, it is more likely to remember it.
How can you put a piece of information into a richer
context?

   By simply adding additional sensory stimuli to it:
auditory, visual or tactile (feeling and
motion based).

   For example, if you simply hear the piece of
information, you are only stimulating the auditory portion
of your brain. But if you take the time to write down the
information that you want to remember, and if you look at
it and read it out loud, you'll stimulate the visual and
tactile parts of your brain as well.

   This will make you more likely to remember the
information. If you're looking for an example of this,
just think about how much quicker you memorize a phone
number if you dial it a few times instead of simply
listening to it.

   TIP: The next time you want to memorize something,  sit
down and physically write it out a few times. Then
practice speaking it aloud a few times, with some emotion
in your voice. This will give it a visual, auditory and
hands-on context.

   2. Supporting Information


   Information is more likely to be considered relevant
by your brain if it is attached to other supporting
information. This is because your mind recognizes the
information as being a part of a larger concept and
therefore more relevant. For example, it's much easier to
remember words if you hear them sung than if you hear
them spoke. This is because the melody and rhythm of the
song provides the lyrics with supporting information.

   You can also remember people's names easier if you
also find out things like where they are from or what
they do for a living.

   TIP: the next time you memorize a piece of information,
either put it to music or learn some other supporting
information to go with it. For example, the next time you
meet someone, ask them where they're from and memorize
their name as "Mark from Tampa" instead of just "Mark."

   3. Take Ownership of Information

   The next time you want to remember a piece of
information, sit down and write out a description of why
the information is important to you. This is especially
effective when you learn something from a book, such as
a quote or a concept. For example, if you come across a
quote that you really like, write a paragraph about it  or
relate it to another quote that you like. This will help
you to take ownership of the information by  developing
your own thought process around it.

   TIP: Start keeping a book of important quotes and
concepts that you want to remember, and get into the habit
of reading a few pages out of it every morning.

of your mind?  Read how to unlock the true nature of
