A+ Student Brain Skills for Studying & Test Taking

There is an intelligence to the way we are designed. We have a brain that has multiple modes that, when we use it as such, allows us to live a better and better, creative and powerful life.

We just were never given the Brain Functioning Handbook.

Luckily through mystics, through empirical evidence and now through the wonderful studies in neuroscience we can understand how to more effectively use our brain.

Brain Modes

Briefly, we have at least two brain modes that we access through our mental direction and conscious breath. The Outer Action Mode is for this world of form, using our five physical senses and taking action. This is generally a left brain hemisphere function. The Inner Creative Mode is where you can more easily direct your thoughts, emotions and thus your life. This is generally a right brain hemisphere function.

Many of my blog posts give different perspective on our Brain Modes including:

Supercharge Changes in Life

Improve Your Life – Update Your Mind’s Software

Best Practices for Students

Imagine having superior concentration, comprehension, understanding, and recall when studying and test taking. This is for anyone in life, not just students (see at the end of this post).

In the A+ Student Brain Skills class students of all ages learn mental direction, intent, and self-commands to make studying and test taking much easier. Index the information learned in your brain.

This results in learning how to study less while increasing your grade. For non-students this helps with regaining mental functioning such as focus, self-direction and goal achievement.

An ex of mine went from academic probation to graduating with honors unexpectedly. This testimonial is in ‘What Clients Say’. He played games more than study once he used this new skill

auditorium of students, stand out from the norm
Empower Yourself to Stand out from the Norm

What it takes to Stand out from the crowd

In a bad economy you have to get noticed to be hired, to be promoted and to get a raise. In big classes you have to find a way to excel above all the other students who want to achieve. To live a life that is true to your purpose and to move past your fears these are the skills required.

Stand out or Become the norm

Most people on the planet just do things the way everyone else does them. This is what sets the norm. Why try to fit into someone else’s norms and expectations of you? As we know from the definition of insanity – doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results – you will keep getting what you are getting if you keep doing what you are doing. The same applies as to how to move beyond the societal and expected ‘norms’.

How to take test
Gain an edge – Use your whole brain

Empower a student – Improve our future

Consider a minor investment in your future… one that will keep giving the rest of your life.

If you know of any groups of students or school systems that want to empower their students then we can arrange separate classes. If someone wants to do a new study on the effectiveness of this system then contact me.

Be more effective in life.

Most people think this after taking a test…

Test taking
Thinking you’ll do bad is a self-fulfilling prophecy

Instead, you can walk out knowing that you used the 3 pass test taking method to access the answers…

Not just for students

As a baby boomer I am so glad to have learned these skills at age 24. I notice that my mind works extremely close to my younger mind. Sharp, focusable, trainable, and creative, to list a few nice qualities.

The saying goes “Use It or Lose It”. These skills exercise your brain, yes. AND it goes much further than that. When you learn that you can choose your thoughts to affect change within you, it becomes another dimension of what is possible in your life.

This is for any person, educator, company, training organization, school, senior group or other who wants to exercise their brain with superior concentration, comprehension, understanding, and recall.

Is Your Heart Closed or Open?

For many people…

It is so much easier to close your heart than to heal it.

It is so much easier to avoid that difficult authentic conversation with a friend to clear things up and let your heart stay closed while damaging or ending that friendship.

It is so much easier to justify in your own mind why you are hurt and throw that pain on others rather than sharing it with a trusted friend to be able to let it out and let in some fresh air.

It is so much easier to throw out the skills that make your heart be able to love and share than to walk through the process to heal it.

It is so much easier to avoid authenticity, vulnerability, and intimacy – the skills of an open heart – than to cry some.

It is so much easier to close the door to a trusted friend when your heart is hurting.

It is so much easier to believe the gossip rather than talking authentically with the subject of that gossip.

It is so much easier to shut out the LIGHT of Life rather than walk through the unknown to nourish It.

When I write ‘it is so much easier to…’ the truth is it seems easier but is it?

…it seems easier, but is it? Really?

It seems easier only because you did not learn how to heal…yet.
To learn to heal is to Love Yourself, Others, and Life
Let me help as a licensed spiritual counselor since 1999.

Stop saying ‘time heals all wounds’

When your heart is hurting many people do what is easy: close off the heart, shut down the healing tears, and believe the saying that time heals all wounds. IT DOES NOT.

With time passing, you try to forget all wounds, burying them to become a part of the unconsciousness that drives your life choices…usually not in a healthy way.

It is often why you lash out at someone.

It is often why your depth of feelings are shallower than before.

It is often why you feel others are too distant from you while your closed heart creates this distance.

It is often why you feel separate from yourself and your dreams.

Where you come from within yourself is what you do to and for the world. What is your come from? Love? Fear? Skepticism? Doubt? Faith? Knowing? Pain?

Our ego keeps us stuck & kills countless expansive experiences in life… blog post

Burying your pains

Those heart pains, those breakups, those friends who disappeared from you, those soured dreams, and those griefs just get buried.

With each burial you suppress your vulnerability (willingness to be ‘seen’ as is. No façade).

With each burial you lose your ability to feel as deeply again. Your friends, family, and lovers get less of your love and self-expression.

With each burial you cut the loving chords that establish closeness

With each burial you begin to fear intimacy (in-to-me-I-see). You do not share what is in your heart.

With each burial you lose touch with your internal life guidance system, gps.

With each burial an authentic part of you dies off.

With each burial you feel more alone. Your ONEness with others originates in your heart center.

With each burial you can only do what you have already done. Life expansion is squashed. Curiosity dies. Exploration ends. Self-expansion stops.

With each burial your seeking a better life withers away.

With each burial you build your walls higher and higher.

With each burial you lose a piece of you.

With each burial you put a foot into your own grave.

With each burial you justify becoming a part of the haze of normality. I consider this sort of a zombie-like state doing what you’re supposed to be doing, being as you are expected to be, doing what you have always done, and never heeding what is in your heart center to do and to become.

You become untethered from your soul because a closed heart prevents that deep connection.

It then hurts to be truly ‘seen’, to put yourself out there again. So, you don’t.

You are disabling your heart strengths. You lose touch with your inherent ability to love, to see a friend as they are, and you become less of a Light in this world.

What does this do to you the next time you feel that ‘falling in love’ feeling? You cannot fall into your heart to feel and express that love as deeply as you used to. You draw people into your life who also have shut off much of their creative self-expression which requires heart skills.

What does this do to you when you meet that possibly great friend? You do not call or answer him. You are unable to experience that part of your heart center. Its energies are clogged and stuck.

What does this do to that dream that has been whispering to you?

How does this hamper that informed yet risky move you know you need to make?

These are just some impacts of how an unhealed heart affects your life.

Dance like nobody’s watching; love like you’ve never been hurt. Sing like nobody’s listening; live like it’s heaven on earth.

~ Mark Twain

Expressions of love from your open heart

To feel what is in your heart is an expression of love.

To follow your internal life GPS is an expression of love.

To hang with a friend is an expression of love.

To make love is an expression of love.

To open up to romance is an expression of love.

To love fully like never before is an expression of love.

To follow your dreams is an expression of love.

To listen to your hunches, your intuition, is an expression of love.

To step outside your comfort zone seeking more and better is an expression of love.

You are unique

There is only one of you on this planet with all the specialness, gifts, quirks that you are.

This is your one life to find the gift that lies within your uniqueness and to be who you are.

To tap into the energy of love is a gift from Life that you are born with.

The energy of Love is your renewal, your rebirth, your infinite wellspring of wellbeing.

To express as love is to hug the world.

To live as an expression of love is who you are.

To shine the Light of Love through you shows others the way.

Your uniqueness is a gift to the world

You are unique just like each snowflake is unique. There will never be another person born like you nor has there ever been.

You are a unique slice of God’s expression on this planet. Lean into your differences. Your uniqueness is your piece of Life’s puzzle you bring to this life that the world needs.

Dare to give your love. TO BE it.

Be willing to love again beginning with yourself.

Heal and Heed the Man in the Mirror. This is the lady who wrote the song for Michael Jackson.

Dare to be you. Shed other’s expectations of who you should be.

Choose to define who you are.

Let the Love of Life show you the way by maintaining a pure connection to your heart center.

BEing the living, breathing expression of Love leads to you meeting the perfect mate or great friend or some fantastic opportunity.

Having done your healing, you will be available to say ‘YES’. You are willing.

You hold the golden key to your own heart. No one else has your master key.

Can You See the Unseen?

These images show the light that shines from us.

Description – This first image shows one of the test subjects in full light. Throughout the day, the body gives off weak emissions of visible light in totally dark conditions, as the color-coded middle image shows. The rightmost image of the subject, captured in infrared wavelengths, shows the heat emissions. ~ from Kyoto University/TIT

Article: Humans glow in visible light – https://www.nbcnews.com/id/wbna32090918

Why can’t we see it?

Our eyes see the world with limits. Light is measured on the electromagnetic spectrum. The range of 380 to 700 nanometers is visible light which is only 0.0035 percent of the spectrum. There is so much more to the world that we do not see than what we do see. *Source below

Infrared light exists but it takes special glasses to see it. It is a lower frequency than visible light.

At higher frequencies than visible light are ultraviolet light, X-rays, and gamma rays.

I have seen humans glow

In my classes, sessions, and spiritual communities I have met many people who see auras, scientifically now known as human glow; just saying.

First time for me. I was volunteering for a workshop and intensely focused on a former mentor and workshop leader, Wilbert Alix, while he was talking about a particular subject. It was like I tuned everything else out and was energetically laser focused on his face, voice, and energies. Suddenly I saw a glow around him. I do not recall the color, yet. It stayed there until I got into my mind about ‘wow, I just saw his aura’. That pulled me out of the intense focus.

Years later I saw it a few more times around certain people but I could not yet see it when I chose to.

Once I was strongly guided to begin doing P.E.A.C.E. Sessions I began to feel the energy coming off a person. This energy would guide me as to what to clear and what to strengthen and empower.

I had a surprise in the first session. I did the opening things I do to tune into my guidance and moved to my friend, Monika, on a massage table. I am totally guided by the knowing intelligence in these sessions. It is the most I can ultimately let go of EVERYTHING. I closed my eyes to sense where to go with her energy.

I actually saw the shape of the energies all over her body. Some were weak. Some were stronger. Some had dings. Some was actually closed off. I ended up pulling out what I called ‘threads of discontent’ from her back. Afterwards she said she had fibromyalgia and her back was as relaxed as it was before that affliction. I knew her personally and she confirmed that never came back. I do not see full color, yet. It is more like shades of gray light.

That happens in every session. I get to verify my guidance when talking with the client afterwards. Though their eyes were closed they knew where I was working and tell me about what they felt during that. It matches with what I was picking up on and perceiving.

But we can see the human glow

Once you have become comfortable with meditation, visualization, insights, and self-awareness there are certain inner powers that come forth. For me, I found a way to see the unseen by meditating deeply to get in alignment with my unseen self and the All One, so to speak. Thus the spectrum of visible light is expanded when we are using your inner eyesight.

Spirit? Life? Purpose? Light?

I go to YouTube sometimes to just peruse and see what intrigues me.

At times, I like watching singing competitions to witness that moment when a really good singer ‘gets it’ within themselves that they have a real talent. They just broke out of a too-small life box. I find some of those cause goose pimples (why is it called that?), bring a tear, or some reaction indicating it’s a Real Moment. I think of Real Moments as unmasked, authentic, and intimate moments where the person is standing in the strength that comes from being vulnerable.

To put it spiritually, it is when I get to witness someone’s Inner Light turn on. They’ve found their groove. It is awesome when, in class or a coaching session, I get to witness someone ‘get it’. They have just expanded their field of possibilities and felt their own inner power.

It’s like a spark that is momentary. Maybe it is when that person opens their inner door to a new awakening.

To the matter at hand…

At times on YouTube, I want to learn or be reminded of something deeper. Recently I came across Oprah interviewing Caroline Myss.

Intuition, Power and Grace – Super Soul Sunday

I found the sections marked below resonated with me and thought I’d share.

What is Spirit?
3:17 – 4:30

It’s the part of you that is seeking meaning and purpose.

The part of you that is drawn to hope and believes in goodness.

I will add what I believe, learned from a philosophy Science of Mind that the Spirit within you is the source for renewal of self. It is the pure unadulterated Life Force. It has never been hurt, damaged, or changed in anyway and can never be. It is the source for your life GPS.

I remind myself that this Life Force, Spirit is within me, around me, and as me. It is what connects me to ONEness of Life. From this sort of template for my best life and my best self, I can cause a renewal in my mind, my heart, my belief, myself to grow into My Self, my life, my health (and others), .

In a spiritual mind treatment that I do for people, I call upon this Life Force to come through this template of whole, perfect and complete to cause change.

The physical world is nothing more than our classroom.
4:36-6:58

Will you make choices that enhance your spirit or drain your power?

Each of your choices will enhance your spirit or it will drain your spirit.

You’ve blocked your spirit…

If you have life, you have purpose.
6:59-17:16

Each of us is born with a purpose for being alive.

Each of us has a Sacred Contract which is a spiritual document that our soul recognizes.

My adlib: You cannot understand this using logic. This is a soul level knowing that we sense, we hear it’s whisper, we feel its nudge. Sometimes we are lucky enough to meet someone who knows us at that level. I was fortunate once for that soul level friend. He made a notable difference in my life.

The more we cling to living a predetermined logical life, a familial acceptable version of us, the more distant is its voice. This is intelligence from the Life Force that is dialed into our GPS. We have to develop a trust of our inner spirit to listen to it.

The mistake most of  us make is to use our logical mind to judge it out of our field of possibilities. It’s too scary. Fear of change will make us stay in unfulfilling relationships and barely livable situations. It’s not acceptable to my family and friends. It doesn’t make sense. All of these are examples of how the ego, the consciousness from our logical mind, will give us any thought, feeling, fear, memory, other to stop us from changing.

There is a way to cut through that mental never-ending do-loop of thoughts that trap our creative freedom of expression. Sit somewhere and take some deep breaths to relax. Now breathe into your heart center. Now breathe into your soul; imagine doing it. Stay there for some moments. Ask it what is good for you. Listen for the whisper, the nudge, the inkling of an idea.

Now, back to the program…

It is a big deal in life and just takes some inner learning to clear the communication channel between your soul and your mind and heart awareness.

One atom is as purposeful as our planet.

Have no judgments, no expectations, and give up the need to know what happens tomorrow. Whoa!

Be fully present and fully appreciate what you have now.

My adlib: This is such an important skill to develop for yourself. I often remind myself that the best state to be in is grateful and joyful. Many systems say this is the place to receive your good, to receive the goals you have set, to have what you have asked Life for.

What if that awful thing that happened in your life was actually the best thing that happened in your life?

Maybe you didn’t get what your prayed for or set as a goal because it would have turned out bad for you. God/Spirit/Life was protecting you.

When Caroline is talking about God, she refers to the Essence of Life, the Force for Good that causes life, Spirit, Universe. This actually aligns with my spiritual philosophy…from the Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes. This is an empowering philosophy of Universal Laws and how to work with them.

Therefore, she says God is Law. This is order in life and it runs in accordance with the unseen, yet repeatable, spiritual laws that cause life.
