Reasons A Photographic Memory Isn’t Always What It’s Cracked Up To Be & Techniques For Forgetting

As the title of Lupe Fiasco’s song suggests, never forgetting sounds like a great idea (and let’s face it, it’s what this site is about, in a way), but there are some memories that you just don’t want to remember.

So this article is in response to the following plea for help we received from Scarlett:

I believe I have true eidetic memory, I have spent a while studying the topic, and every description was literally describing myself. My memories stay with me for a very long time, I haven’t forgotten many since I was 4. Is there any way to erase the bad memories? To make them vanish. They haunt me. In my sleep i am constantly having nightmares, i cannot wake up from them because i think they are real, some of them are past events. Events that i wish i could forget, ones that i want gone. My head seems full, too full. I seem to “misplace” memories inside my head, other memories slightly similar to the one “misplaced” make me “find” it again. I wish i could simply remove a ton of memories. Please help.

Most people probably have a few memories they’d rather not remember, and for most of us, the brain naturally sweeps them under the carpet of little grey cells, protecting us from whatever trauma or embarrassment they bring to mind.

But for some people, like Scarlett, those bad memories just refuse to go away – they take on a life of their own, even parasitically attaching themselves to other more pleasant memories, surfacing when you least expect them.

So, how can you do some mental spring cleaning, and throw out the junk while keeping the good stuff?

The two main solutions to this problem are to either learn how to quiet your mind (which we know from first-hand experience is not always that easy) or distract your mind with something more engaging.

I (Rae) am extremely visual, I have a daily struggle with a constant deluge of time-wasting BS images (mostly from my past) always popping in my head, I have to work hard to suppress the crap and tell my little friend (my mind) that these images/recollections of past events/locations are not helping and I need to focus on current issues – now stop it!

This does seems to be more of a problem for women than men, as depicted in this popular humorous meme that’s been doing the rounds of Facebook recently.

And while we’re on this subject, in spite of all the talk about “multi-tasking”, the truth is that the human brain can only focus on one thing at once (other than autonomic functions such as breathing, of course). What people perceive as multi-tasking is actually the mind’s awesome ability to switch incredibly rapidly from one subject to another, but you’re not truly doing more than one job simultaneously.

The good news is, there are several techniques for forgetting that help.

Firstly, meditation is a great tool, not only to help you forget painful memories, but also as a way to find a place of calm in today’s hectic lifestyle.

conducted in 2012 concluded that mindfulness (a key component of meditation) is capable of re-wiring your brain with as little as 11 hours’ training.

Meditation can be a spiritual experience for you, or it can be nothing more than a way to withdraw from your surroundings to recharge your mental batteries.

Either way, it is not that hard to do, and in spite of common misconceptions, you don’t need any special paraphernalia – as long as you can find somewhere quiet where you won’t be disturbed, you’ll be fine.

Secrets Of Meditation by davdji

To get you going, we’ve hunted down a book that gets nothing but positive reviews. It’s called “Secrets Of Meditation“, by davidji, and it’s available in both paperback and Kindle editions.

Apart from introductory chapters about meditation and its benefits, it discusses eight different types, or styles, of meditation, so you’ve plenty of options to find one that works best for you.

The key is regular practice – like anything worthwhile, meditation is a skill that takes time to master, so try to plan a session every day if you can.

Somewhat related to meditation is another ancient technique, also associated with the East, that we recommend – yoga.

And just like meditation, yoga is often misunderstood.

For example, it doesn’t matter how old you are – young or old, there are yoga “asanas” (i.e. positions) that are suitable for you. You don’t have to sit there trying to tie your legs in knots!     :-)

Although yoga is about stretching, toning, strengthening and relaxing your entire body, you should never push yourself to the point of experiencing strain or stress.

And of course yoga is also about mastering the right breathing techniques too.

Easy Yoga Series by Wai Lana

If you want a really great way to start learning yoga, then we can highly recommend the Easy Yoga Series by Wai Lana.

This 3-DVD series includes a Beginners’ Workout, a Toning Workout, and a Relaxation Workout.

Be warned though – these DVDs are so relaxing, with the beautifully scenic backdrops and the music, that you may just fall asleep!

Those are probably the two best techniques for quieting your mind, but what about methods of distracting it?

Well, one way to push unwanted memories or thoughts out of your mind is to focus on something else – remember, the brain can only think about one thing at once.

This can be business- or work-related, or maybe a hobby or even a sporting activity – anything that forces you to concentrate on the here and now instead of the past or future. Examples, which are in no particular order, might include:

  • writing (e.g. poetry, a short story, a journal)
  • jogging
  • going for a bike ride
  • crossword puzzles
  • Sudoko
  • playing chess
  • watching a movie
  • gardening
  • playing with your kids in the park
  • taking your dog for a walk
  • learning how to juggle
  • cooking or baking
  • reading
  • volunteering (e.g. at a local soup kitchen)
  • and even housework.

It really doesn’t matter what the activity is – provided it works for you.

Another way of distracting your mind, especially your subconscious mind (or unconscious, as some call it), is to give it a problem to solve.

How does that work?

We’re sure you’ve had that experience where an answer to a question or problem just pops into your brain from apparently nowhere.

That’s your subconscious in action – it’s been working on find a solution for you for some time, and that moment of inspiration is actually a message coming through to say your search is over.

The knack is to be able to take control of this process – you need to be able to give a job to your subconscious and tell it to work on finding the answer you need and then let you know.

In fact, you need to take control of all your thoughts – otherwise, your thoughts will control you.

I (Mark) used to feel like me and my brain were two separate entities, but fortunately, I conquered that particular issue several years ago now by becoming aware of my internal dialogue and shutting down any negative self-talk.

Part of this comes from the realization that the past is the past – in other words, you can’t change it. All you can do is learn from it so that you’ll behave differently next time. (There is a saying that you can only make a mistake once, because the second time, it’s a choice.)

To be honest, I do often still get music stuck in my head (sometimes for days at a time), but that’s far preferable to conversations with yourself (or maybe a past self) that only end up adding to your torment.

As an aside, there is a book that teaches you how to communicate effectively with your subconscious, although in our experience, the author makes things overly complicated, but perhaps you’ll find it easier than we did.

Finally, one of the most effective ways to cut out those negative thoughts is to make sure you’re never bored, because that’s typically when those images from the past come back to haunt you. And that’s why even something like doing housework can take your mind off things.

Actually, the ZOX Pro course teaches another method for overcoming distractions – one that even the great Albert Einstein used. See, even geniuses aren’t immune to this problem!

So, we hope this helps anyone who’s suffering from Scarlett’s problem.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below.


How To Spell A Word – Super Fast

That is a lot of red squiggles in Word. If people have a hard time just spelling the basic term, how do they ever even get to our site for help? That is really the sad part of this, they may not even know that these are misspelled words. But, not to worry, we have some strategies that could make your life a lot easier – spelling wise and perhaps even more.

What are some of the common strategies that you’re tried to crack your own spelling nightmares?

Spelling Rules

Here is what About dot com says for the Top Four Spelling Rules:

Spelling rules are a bit like weather forecasts: we may use them, but we really can’t depend on them to be right 100% of the time. In fact, the only fool-proof rule is that all spelling rules in English have exceptions…” Not very helpful, right?

1. Using I Before E

Use i before e, except after c, or when sounded as [a long a sound] “a” as in “neighbor” and “weigh.”

EXAMPLES:
believe, chief, piece, and thief; deceive, receive, weigh, neighbor, and freight

COMMON EXCEPTIONS:
efficient, weird, height, neither, ancient, caffeine, foreign

2. Dropping the Final E

Drop the final e before a suffix beginning with a vowel (a, e, i, o, u) but not before a suffix beginning with a consonant.

EXAMPLES:
ride + ing = riding
guide + ance = guidance
hope + ing = hoping
entire + ly = entirely
like + ness = likeness
arrange + ment = arrangement

COMMON EXCEPTIONS:
truly, noticeable

3. Changing a Final Y to I

Change a final y to i before a suffix, unless the suffix begins with i.

EXAMPLES:
defy + ance = defiance
party + es = parties
pity + ful = pitiful
try + es = tries
try + ing = trying
copy + ing = copying
occupy + ing = occupying

COMMON EXCEPTIONS:
annoyance, conveyance

4. Doubling a Final Consonant

Double a final single consonant before a suffix beginning with a vowel when both of these conditions exist:

  1. a single vowel precedes the consonant;
  2. the consonant ends an accented syllable or a one-syllable word.

EXAMPLES:
stop + ing = stopping
admit + ed = admitted
occur + ence = occurrence
stoop + ing = stooping
benefit + ed = benefited
delight + ful = delightful

You have just four little rules (and a bunch of exceptions), why is still so hard to get it right?

Here is yet another list of commonly misspelled words:

absence
accommodate
achieve
acquire
across
address
advertise
advice
among
apparent
argument
athlete
awful
balance
basically
becoming
before
beginning
believe
benefit
breathe
brilliant
business
calendar
careful
category

cemetery
certain
chief
citizen
coming
competition
convenience
criticize

definite
deposit
describe
desperate
develop
difference
dilemma
disappear
disappoint
discipline

exaggerate
excellent
except
exercise
existence
expect
experience
experiment
explanation
familiar
fascinating
finally
foreign
forty
forward
friend
fundamental
generally
government
grammar
guarantee

Well OK then, I’m fully equipped, got my spelling rules, a quick list of the commonly misspelled words, what the heck else do I need?

Looks like that is still not enough – for me and many others out there. If it were just that simple, then we might be talking about something else…oh, like the weather forecast, since spelling seems to be about as predictable.   :-)

Is your head spinning yet? Does this bring back painful memories? No problem, then let’s move on.

I don’t think I have thought about this stuff in years. If you actually had the time and motivation to memorize the basic rules, and all of the ton of exceptions (beyond just what is listed here), and you were a bit of an expert in word etymology, and your knowledge of syntax was superior, then this would just be an amusing footnote for you.

Now, for the rest of us, we will need something more. Perhaps even more rules (OK, just kidding).

Let’s look at another strategy.

Phonetic Spelling

Heck yeah, I grew up with the American Heritage Dictionary and all of those handy symbols, for example: Concentration (con-suhn-TRAY-shun or kǒn-sən-trāˊ-shən). Do you remember those symbols used to help you pronounce, syllabicate, and by extension help you to spell words? The premise being that if you have some strategies then you will be better equipped to deal with the complexities and idiosyncrasies of the English language.

Great idea, only problem with that is English, in particular American-style English, is far from being phonetic. You only have 26 letters of the alphabet and many letters have multiple sounds. For example, the letter A has at least four different and distinct sounds:

ā Long A Age, Cake, Main
ǎ Short A Ann, Can’t, Mat
ä Ah, sound All, Father, Pasta
ə Uh, sound (schwa) About, Across, Around

So, if you are trying to sound words out, then how will you know which sound to apply? In come the symbols, but in order for this to work, you would have to consistently use them in print all of the time – no exceptions. Of course the other problem is what do you do for non-written material? If you are in a conversation, surely you won’t be using symbols.

For me this is helpful with pronunciation. It is like seeing an old friend. However, if you did not use these symbols growing up, then this may not make much sense. Or, if you grew up with IPA symbols   :-(   then this will be like learning a different language. Now, if you had nothing, then at least this could be a possible strategy. The basic problems are still there, without the symbols, how would you know that you have the correct or desired word? This could be a starting point, but you would need a lot more to see you through it all.

Yep, let’s look at another strategy, but before we do, did you know that thousands of people cannot seem to find the correct spelling for…hint: it is meant to be a tasty appetizer that you eat before the main course, often misspelled: hor dourves …

The correct spelling is: hors d’œuvre (a French word which is singular or plural). In English you would probably see it written like this: hors d’oeuvres.

Now, that you’re hungry and all (quaint isn’t it), grab a healthy snack and let’s keep going.

OK, what about memory tricks such as Mnemonics? Can’t that work? Yes and no.

Mnemonics (nee-MON-iks)

This is basically a memory aide – usually using some sort of word association scheme(s).

There are different types for different types of info. Here are a few examples.

Expressions and Word Mnemonics

Pretty, Please, My, Dear, Aunt, Sally, what’s that for?
This is how I taught kids the order of operations in math; Parentheses, Powers (i.e. exponents), Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

How about: in English, the 7 coordinating conjunctions are For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So = FANBOYS.

What about: The categories in the classification of life are Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species, Variety = Kings Play Cards On Fairly Good Soft Velvet.

Head spinning? OK.

Rhyme Mnemonics

A commonly used Rhyme Mnemonic for the number of days in each month is:

30 days hath September, April, June, and November
All the rest have 31
Except February my dear son
It has 28 and that is fine
But in Leap Year it has 29

Connection Mnemonics

This probably one of the more common types that most have heard of. You are trying to make a connection or a link between something you already know and some new thing you are trying to remember.

Here’s an easy one: Longitude vs. Latitude, which is which?

Lines on the globe that run North to South are Longitude, whereas lines that run East to West have to be Latitude, since there is no N in Latitude. Somewhat simplistic. How about if you think of it like Latitude sounds like flat, and flat lines run horizontal or East and West. Still no, you don’t like that? Well, truth be told, despite lots of folks swearing by this method, I’m not convinced either.

Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge by Rod EvansOK fine, if you really want to explore this technique in more detail, then here is a book (Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge – The Book of Mnemonic Devices) that may help you in this quest. Now, we have not read this book, but as of the date of publishing this article, it gets a very high rating (4.8 out of five stars), that means some people are finding it to be helpful.

The basic problems that are inherent with any Mnemonic systems are they attempt to provide short cuts, codes, and artificial links between one thing and another thing.

If you try to use the short cuts provided, then you will have to somehow get into the originator’s head. In other words, he has come up with short cuts and codes or links based on his experience, his life, his history, his expertise, and so forth. Now, if you don’t share his body of knowledge – and why would you – then his references and links probably won’t make much sense for you.

And of course the other issue is most of these links are always of a visual nature. This is fine is you are naturally very visual, but if you are not, then what?

Interestingly I am super visual, whereas my husband is just the opposite – he never seems to use visual skills, yet he found a way to work this system. He heavily modified all of the provided references to use example of things he was very familiar with.

Yep, what that means is, for this to really work, you must create your own code, your own links, from your own experiences. Yeah, that was what I thought, way too much work, even though my visual processing, and my visual memory is extremely high, I had no desire to create an entire mnemonic system just for me. I knew if I had to create my own system of references, then I basically would be creating my own short cut new language. I just could not see spending that kind of time. And when I tried to use “out-of-the box” provided codes, I found most of them did absolutely nothing for me, but had me scratching my head trying to figure out how those things were even related in the first place.

It ended up being a lot of layers, first how does A relate to B, then how will I remember to use A when I’m trying to remember B. It just got to be too much, so this was a big bust for me. I’m ready to move on again, hope you are too.

Then what the heck is the solution?

Spelling activities, spelling rules for kids, some kind of phonetic spelling converter thingy, spelling word games, what is it?

OK, OK, we’ve covered many systems that might work for some, but all have a number of problems, many require so much time to make the necessary modifications that most people will not be able to do this or will give up in frustration.

We want to look at this from a different standpoint.

Let’s stop the madness.

I’m an

with math.

  • Throw out the spelling rule books!
  • Get rid of the memory tricks!
  • Forget trying to deal with layers upon layers of crazy codes!
  • No more guessing and being wrong most of the time!
  • No more lugging around extra equipment, extra books, or extra gadgets to help you spell better!
  • No more embarrassment!

What if you could throw out all of the spelling rules, get rid of the memory tricks, yet be able to spell all words flawlessly and accurately every time you need them?

Also, you would need to do this in your lifetime, we are mindful of time and the growing number of responsibilities that everyone has to undertake. We’re not interested in a life-long program. We’re looking at something a lot more reasonable.

So, the conclusion is in a nutshell, just memorize the dictionary. That way whatever word you need is in your brain, and you just have to dig it out.

Now, you are probably thinking, “Have you flipped out?” Who is going to spend a life-time memorizing the dictionary?

Yeah, it does sound crazy but if you could do this, would that not help you in almost everything you do in life? It would build your confidence in your writing, it would greatly help your communications skills, and it would certainly save some unimaginable amount of time!

Houghton Mifflin American Heritage Office Edition DictionaryAll right, what is this really about? It is mental photography. This is where you can take this book, the Houghton Mifflin American Heritage Office Edition Dictionary, (Paperback, 960 pages) and you store the ENTIRE book in your head. Whenever you need a word, you just ask for that word and it will come from your built-in library and appear in your thoughts just as your favorite dish comes to mind when you have cravings.

It may seem hard to believe and perhaps even ridiculous, but surely you must be aware that most human brains are working at 5-10% capacity. So, what is happening with the rest of the 90%? A small amount of that is typical bodily functions (breathing, metabolism, and such), but the rest is basically untapped resources – just going to waste in many cases.

Why not get more from the resources you already have? You just need a way to tap into this massive powerhouse. This can be done in a couple of ways. It will require you do things in a different manner than you did in the past – which should be a welcome change – because if your old methods worked, we would not have been able to have this little chat today, right?

The program that we would recommend for a self-help-training course that you can do at home is Zox Pro Training (short page with videos, if you are in a hurry), if you would like to read more about this fascinating topic, then get more details, visit the Zox Pro Training System (full page with expanded details).

Now once, you are on your way and you’d like to expand and enhance your training, then check out the Zox Pro Training Companion. This companion product uses brainwave entrainment binaural beats for maximum effectiveness. This will help you increase your mental clarity, dramatically improve your concentration and focus, help you to become more organized and effective, and you will find a hidden benefit, you will need less sleep but yet you will have more energy than ever before.

Folks, this is your one-two punch, stop wasting your time on the old methods that clearly have let you down. Right now you can experience a new level of learning that not only will help you with spelling but it will help you in almost all other areas of your life.

If you’re are looking for an edge in any of these areas, then you are just a couple of clicks away from experiencing an unprecedented leap from struggling to mastery of almost any subject that you want.

Here is a brief snapshot of the amazing things you’ll be able to do after being exposed to Richard Welch’s secret discoveries made possible in the Zox Pro System:

  • Achieve a MINIMUM speed of 25,000 words per minute – Imagine how much knowledge you could gain at that rate!
  • Retain 100% of the information you absorb for the rest of your life – (most people only retain around 5% of the information they read)!
  • Achieve Maximum concentration – never get distracted!
  • Massively enhance your peripheral vision and eyesight!
  • Re-program your brain to set your built-in ‘Auto-Pilot’ on course to achieving ANYTHING YOU DESIRE!
  • Awaken your intuition and use it in your everyday life to develop a heightened perception that can guide you towards your goals and dreams quicker than you ever thought possible!
  • Discover new methods of creative problem solving and lateral thinking (you can actually solve your toughest problems “while you sleep!” Imagine how much more you will achieve when you set your mind to work overnight!)
  • Tune up your brain so you can work much smarter – not harder!

Psychic Intuition

Boost Your Intuition With ZOX ProIs that what this is all about? It could be, or perhaps it could be a whole lot more than just something that folks with crystal balls are touting.

Think back – at some point in your life, you experienced something that you could not exactly put your finger on.

You may have gotten a feeling that tried to warn you in some way.

You may have had a dream that gave you some clues that you were about to enter into to an arrangement that would not have your best interest at heart.

In my own case, frequently I have I guess what you would call premonitions. I am highly visual and I see images in my head regularly. I saw my husband Mark (in my head) long before I actually met him in person. Actually I had his image in my head for years.

It was hard to see him completely, as it takes an incredible amount of energy to render images in this manner as I see full-spectrum images, color, shapes, layers, textures, etc. When I see something that I haven’t actually seen with my eyes, my mind has to really go into overdrive to draw these images. But let’s just say that I had enough light as it were to see that he has blue eyes. So, that’s good enough for me.

Increase Both Intellect And Your Intuition With ZOX ProI’ve seen my dream kitchen in my head thousands of times. It used to be rather dark and some details were hard to make out.

Not so much these days, it has much more light, the details are so vivid down to the two massive side-by-side kitchen islands that are fully equipped (heating draws, dish washer, compactor, mini-fridges, sink just to name a few) and have jaw-dropping exquisite marble counter tops, the Sub Zero refrigeration units, the glass in the cabinets, the cozy corner banquette where we watch shows on the large-screen LCD whilst we eat a healthy chef-prepared meal…It is all there in mouth-watering detail.

Give Yourself An Edge And Be More Perceptive With ZOX ProSo, is this just some case of a woman’s intuition?

Perhaps, but I doubt that this only happens to me. People find their intuition gifts in many formats: for some it comes by way of developing musical intuitions or others it may show up as some sort of divine intuition, i.e. they get a helping hand when they need it the most, for you it may manifest itself in yet some other manner.

The key is embrace it if you want to find ways to awaken intuition that may be buried then you must find various methods in developing intuition skills which are not as hard as you might think.

Is There A Math Genius Hidden In Your Autistic Child?  Find Out With ZOX ProWell, if that doesn’t get you going, then here is a story of a young man, named Daniel Tammet, who was diagnosed as being autistic, but you would never imagine it with all of the things that he is able to do with almost no effort.

He’s learned several languages; he can do four or five digit computations in his head like water, he can memorize loads of things with little effort, and he is very social. He set a record by reciting 22,514 digits of Pi which is one of his all-time favorite numbers.

The film company chronicled his journey from the UK to the US to be tested at the brain studies institute in San Diego, CA, and on his way he made a few stops.

He had some fun with some chess hustlers in NY. Even though he does not play chess he was able to give them a challenge nonetheless.

He met the original Rain Man in Utah where they had a facts & figures show down and learned a thing or two about photo reading and how Kim Peek remembers every single thing he reads; he reads the left page of a book with his left eye and the right page with his right eye – come on, why waste all of that time reading a single page with both eyes – duh , Daniel may have met his match on this one as Kim Peek would be a grand master and Daniel might be a grand master in training.

Make The Most Of Your Synaesthesia With ZOX ProDaniel went to Las Vegas to see if he could use his incredible math skills and bet the house at Black Jack. To his shock, he almost went bust by counting cards; he did, however, find a way to win all of his money back and you will be very surprised at the technique this extraordinary mathematician ended up using.

He went to the brain studies department and blew the researchers away. They admit that he is the real deal but they have no real explanations for what he can do.

Then finally Daniel took up a challenge to see if he could learn a new language in just seven (7) days. He went to Iceland to learn what is supposed to be one of the most difficult languages that exists – even the native peoples have a lot of problems getting this language right after years of using it.

Well, let’s see what happen when Daniel accepted this challenge. Do you think he was able to learn a new language that is radically different from his native English language or was this the one thing he would not be able to do? After all, he only had to learn a new extremely difficult language in 7 days, and be able to speak in front of millions of people on TV. How hard could that be? Find out what happens, watch the videos below:

Other areas to check out:

  • Accelerated Learning Techniques will finally be within your grasp
  • Developing Intuition will happen without you even trying
  • Eidetic Memory (i.e. a photographic memory) will be second nature
  • Speed Reading Techniques are just the tip of the iceberg – you will easily learn Photo Reading where you can Memory Photograph at incredible speeds (typically starting at 25,000 wpm and more, some go much higher with 90% or better comprehension and life-time material retention)
  • Whole Brain Teaching is employed to utilize much more of your brain capacity. You’ve probably heard that most people only use 10% of their brain (with a lot of people this could be much lower) – why have a large structure with so much capability and vastly under-use it? No more – get your brain growing again!

OK, folks we’re not suggesting that by taking this training you will become a so-called idiot savant, it is not too likely that that will happen. Supposedly there are about 50 of them and they’re all males. Hmm, shut out on that front as well…

However, what is likely to happen is that your brain will develop new pathways. People that are autistic typically have had some early-childhood trauma – physical or otherwise. Their brains had to adapt and look for alternative developmental pathways to perhaps compensate for something that was lacking.

It may not be clear anytime soon why these gifted individuals are able to excel in certain areas and not in others. In Daniel’s case, he is fabulous with number crunching, but he can’t deal with algebra – the letters and numbers do not have enough of a concrete relationship – this is too abstract.

Break Through Your Autism And Find Your Inner Genius With ZOX ProWe see this similarity in another somewhat famous autistic scientist in Temple Grandin. She sees extreme detail in mechanical objects, she has a photographic memory, she builds solutions to complex problems because she can see herself “walk through” the solution, but she doesn’t like algebra – same issues, it is not absolute and has too many variables (which is kind of the point of that of that subject matter).

This is another very powerful inspirational story of how she uses her gifts to help solve some tough problems with humane treatment of cattle. Being an autistic female, she had more than her fair share of problems growing up in a left-brained fascist society where if you did not fit the mold you were ridiculed and tormented because you could not “learn” like everyone else.

Thankfully she persevered and overcame to become one of the world’s leading experts in the humane cost-effective cattle housing and containment.

Folks here are some other things to think about: the visual cortex of the human brain is very large and complex compared to other areas of the brain, as opposed to the olfactory sense organs in dogs which are 10 times the size of ours, so stop trying to hide snacks from them – they will always find them.

Develop A Photographic Memory With ZOX ProNature provides for many types of situations, in the days before people had formal languages, they used telepathy as a big part of their daily communications.

Once language began to develop these skills went dormant. That does not mean that they are lost, it just means some effort is necessary to help bring them back to the surface.

Kids (especially 5 and under) are able to do many incredible things because they have their freedom. They have not been beat down yet by left-brain totalitarians. You can easily help your baby to read for example at the age of 6 months!

If you do have a young child, there are many more opportunities for help him bring out his inner genius. Take a look at our sister site for more info, Baby Math.

Meanwhile if your child is 7 years or older, then the ZOX Pro Training will have him or her doing some really amazing things; why not take the training together! This will bring you two much closer and strengthen your bonds even further.

Hope this helps,

Developing Intuition

Develop Your Intuition With ZOX ProDeveloping intuition can be both a difficult and a challenging task – although it is not considered to be completely impossible – and this is as the concept of intuitiveness is not yet completely understood.

Several attempts have, to date, been made to define intuition, and, although no-one has, as yet, managed to fully understand exactly what intuition is or what acting intuitively involves, the simplest intuition definition must surely be Jung’s: “intuition (is) perception via the unconscious”.

Practical intuition involves knowing or recognizing something about a situation that, from the face of it, cannot be known or recognized. The security officer just “knowing” that the subject in the distance has a gun or the mother just “knowing” that her child in the next room is hurt are all examples of using intuition – and, in particular, mother’s intuition – in everyday situations.

Intuition – especially women’s intuition – has taken on an almost mystical quality in our society, and both developing your intuition and trusting your intuition are becoming increasingly popular.

Those people who are highly intuitive, furthermore, usually don’t know why they are able to automatically realize certain things and they are therefore often unable to help when it comes time to answer the “how to develop intuition” question.

Develop Intuition And A Photographic Memory With ZOX ProThere are, however, several schools of thought that say it is possible to develop your intuition – or even unlock your intuition – and these advocate developing intution through increasing self-awareness, focus and concentration.

Although most modern methods aimed at intuition development seem to have more in common with phenomena such as New Age religion, extra-sensory perception and the supernatural than with cold, hard science, any system that promotes intuition training designed to increase awareness – both of oneself and one’s surroundings – can’t be all wrong.

According to these methods, someone wanting to develop intuition should first determine how intuitive they actually are, and there are a number of easy and free online tests that, when completed, will place a person somewhere on the totally unintuitive through intuitive empath scale.

If, after taking the test, a person determines that they do indeed need help with the “how to develop your intuition” conundrum, there are a number of things they can do that are said to help increase both self-awareness and intuition.

One of the more popular ways of increasing intuition is through meditation, and special intuition meditation exercises have been developed that help one get in touch with one’s subconscious and that encourage one to ask one’s subconscious certain questions while in the meditative state.

Further ways of learning to develop and trust your intuition would involve things like reading motivational texts in the form of, among other things, inspirational poetry, online self-awareness articles and sacred texts.

Given the above, there is no reason why developing intuition, which has, incidentally, long been regarded as a talent at which only women can excel – ever heard of a woman’s intuition? – shouldn’t be seen as both positive and desirable.

Taking a look on the Internet to see what people are thinking about really brings up some scary sorts of images:

Organise Your Thoughts With ZOX Pro

Supposedly these are peoples’ attempts at brainstorming. There are a lot of thoughts there, and perhaps there may even be some good useful thoughts – but it will take a long time to make any sense of that lot.

Develop A Photographic Memory With ZOX ProObviously their left brains are really firing on all cylinders. Now let’s say you add in some “gut-feelings” to the mix with a little right brain input; then what exactly are these people going to do?

Some people may go through this on a daily basis – walking around with hundreds of seemingly random thoughts bombarding their brains and no real way to make any sense of it all. This is one end of the spectrum.

Develop Your Intuition Skills With ZOX Pro

At the other end of the scale you have people trying to figure out and interpret their gut-feel or the hunch they just received, or maybe that “bad feeling” about something.

All of this info can be very valuable, but without having a reasonable method for efficiently utilizing it, what’s the point?

This is why it is crucial to re-train your brain so that you have ways to experience large volumes of input, utilize it, store it, and be able to recall it at will any time in the future.

At the same time, we need to be able to react to those hunches as this could be a life saver. When you are threatened and need to think on your feet, you need every resource available. You need to be able to rely on your gut-feelings in times of emergency and in normal times with just the day-to-day things that come up.

If you are about to partner up with a new individual and you get that “bad feeling”, then your gut is trying to tell you this may not be the best situation for you. This could save you valuable time, money, and headaches.

Once you have all sides working together, i.e. both left brain and right brain, you will finally experience brain-hemisphere synchronization – you’ll be unstoppable. Your brain will work the way it is meant to work. You will get so much more done each day that you might find you’re able to complete ALL of your scheduled tasks and now for once you actually have some free time to do whatever you want. Isn’t that the way it should be?

What Is Your Gut Trying To Tell You? Find Out With ZOX ProLook folks the subject of intuition in general is indeed large, because there is science there, just from the fact that many hormones are produced each day when we are in various situations, stress, uncertainty, fear, sadness, happiness, anger, etc. We need to have a way to cut through it all to get to the info we need.

You’ve heard that voice in the back of your head trying to warn you about something; did you listen or just ignore it and let chance blow in the wind?

If you want to be successful in all of your endeavors you need an edge. Times are tough and the competition is getting stronger. What will you do to ensure your financial future?

Take a few moments and check out ZOX Pro Training. Yeah, it is an unusual name, but once you complete this program you will be light years ahead of your competition in most areas of study:

  • Accelerated Learning Techniques will finally be within your grasp
  • Developing Intuition will happen without you even trying
  • Eidetic Memory (i.e. a photographic memory) will be second nature

Speed Reading Techniques

Speed Your Read With ZOX ProLearning how to increase reading speed through using one or more speed reading techniques is thought to be a worthwhile goal, but studies have shown that the ability to read faster may compromise basic text comprehension.

Both speedreading and its quicker cousin, photo reading (where people allegedly increase reading speed to 25,000 words per minute) are thought to be of great benefit – especially to students – as these speed reading programs are believed to lead to speed learning.

Which speed reading course is the best speed reading course on the market has, however, not yet been established, and neither are some experts convinced that rapid reading is a good thing as reading fast or “skimming” a text has been shown to lead to reduced comprehension.

Test Your New Speed Reading Skills With This Fun Magic Squares BookThe first proponent of speed reading for kids was teacher Evelyn Wood, and, after she experienced success with her innovative reading technique, the Evelyn Wood speed reading course was developed into her Reading Dynamics speed reading training program.

This program was taught to college kids in the 1950s, and the Evelyn Woods speed reading technique would eventually become popular with such influential people as John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter.

In a nutshell, Ms Wood’s speed reading program encouraged the reader to read while underlining the text with a finger or a pointer as the eye seemed to follow such an instrument no matter how fast it was going.

Ways on how to improve reading speed have changed a great deal since the Evelyn Woods speed reading course was popular sixty years ago, and today’s students learn how to speed read through using such diverse methods as speed reading software packages and commercial mega speed reading programs like Scheele’s PhotoReading and Howard Berg speed reading (Maximum Power Reading).

While some of the best speed reading software packages aim at getting people to learn speed reading through eliminating speed reading subvocalization – internal or “silent” speech involving the manipulation of the mouth and/or throat – the aforementioned speed reading tutorial programs emphasize increasing and improving the brain’s processing capabilities to facilitate reading faster.

Speed read software is, however, becoming increasingly popular, and it is thus recommended that anyone looking for info on how to learn speed reading on their computer evaluate all available speed reading software reviews before deciding which package to buy.

The need to speed your read seems to have been taken to a whole new level with the increase in the number of online texts, and online speed reading is understood to be similar to “skimming”, which involves reading portions of a text extremely quickly while disregarding other, less essential, portions.

Whether this method serves to both improve reading speed and improve reading comprehension is, however, another matter, and it is, in fact, quite dangerous to rely on spead reading – and how many readers picked up that was “spead” and not “speed”? – when having to read, and remember, extremely technical online texts.

Generally, a speed reading test will show that the faster a person reads, the less he will understand, and, as such, to learn to speed read is perhaps not the best way to try to study more effectively.

Reading quicker would not be a bad thing – as long as comprehension does not suffer – and anyone can find out how fast they read by taking a simple reading speed test. If, after the test, they still want to improve their reading speed, there are many tips for speed reading available online.

There are many speed reading techniques and speed reading tips available today, and the trick is to separate those that work from those that don’t.

Editor’s Notes:

Our super-star staff writer Maria has done a fine job on this article. We congratulate her on great researching and writing skills. Maria, keep up the good work!

Develop A Photographic Memory With ZOX Pro We know that many people are on Google with this as their search term: “improve reading skills” and it is a good bet that they want to be much more effective in their endeavors so naturally, if they can increase reading speeds, they will accomplish more in the same amount of time. Yes, while this is a great goal, problem is using ordinary techniques may not meet your objectives. Not to worry, we found a break-through method that not only will increase your reading skills, but it will greatly enhance your mental prowess beyond your wildest dreams.

Did you ever try to learn a foreign language as an adult, and find it difficult? I am pretty good with languages, so I thought it would be fun to try Mandarin Chinese.

It was actually quite easy – at first. They gave us a crutch, called Romanization. This means the actually Chinese character is translated phonetically into English letters. So, what could be so hard to learn – a little extra vocab? I sailed through that without much effort.

Fast forward towards the end of the first term (about 15 weeks into an 18-week class), they started to slip in actual Chinese characters to replace the Romanized words. Initially, they used characters with only a few strokes – real basic concepts that you’d teach children. OK, that wasn’t too bad. Little-by-little, the characters became more complex, then it was no longer some fun new words each day, but a real struggle to keep up.

The teacher made us read out loud in front of the class each day. Personally I hate embarrassment, so just to be on the safe side in my book I put the Romanization back.

Finally, Accelerated Language Learning With ZOX Pro - Shave Off Years Of StudyThe moral of the story is, if you want to learn to read and write in a language that has a radically different alphabet than yours, you will need a substantial game plan in order to be successful.

Suppose you could look at a page, memorize it, comprehend the contents, retain this knowledge for life, and do this consistently at mind-blowing speeds?

Would this help you out at work, at school, at home, with new hobbies, or unexpected last-minute projects etc?

We found a terrific program that will help you to literally bring out your inner genius. This program will give you the confidence you need to be able to achieve almost anything you try.

Here are a few of the highlights of a real life-changing program:

  • Learn at the speed of light using a natural learning process called Mental Photography that allows you to take in information at over 100 times faster than the average reading speed – to be exact, that is 25,000+ WPM and faster!
  • Become better organized and much more productive.
  • Train your brain so your memory is razor sharp – 100% retain information for the rest of your life and automatically remember things that were once forgotten.
  • Achieve maximum concentration and never get distracted.
  • Massively enhance your peripheral vision and eyesight.
  • Re-program your brain to allow you to set your built-in ‘Auto-Pilot’ on course to achieving ANYTHING YOU DESIRE.
  • Relax and reduce stress at will.
  • Reduce the amount of sleep you need and wake up feeling great every day of the week with more energy and enthusiasm than ever before.

You will finally be able to back your life. You will have control over your time (this may take some getting used to if you have been a slave for years).

Dyslexia Is No Longer An Obstacle Once You'Ve Finished The ZOX Pro TrainingThis incredible program works for anyone from age 7 and up. If you know of someone with learning difficulties, reading problems, and have special needs, this program can be equally effective for them as well.
