Dear James,

How can I use the power of my mind to improve my memory?


Use intentional meditation. To begin to improve your memory by intentional meditation you must first close your eyes and completely relax your body. Breathe deeply and methodically until your heart beat begins to slow. If you are having trouble relaxing mentally imagine each body part and tell it to relax beginning with your toes all the way to your head. Once you are relaxed count down backwards from ten. Imagine you are on a staircase and each time you count a number imagine you are walking down that staircase. Once you hit the bottom you should be in a deep enough trance to begin working on intentional meditation memory improvement. At this point hold the intention that every breath you take, every beat of your heart and every word you say, improves your memory. Also repeat this affirmation like a broken record as a reinforcement, “Every day my memory gets better and better!”
