It’s the day of the big exam. You’ve spent weeks cramming. You walk into the classroom, receive your test and pick up your pencil. You look down at the paper and…your mind goes blank.

Hopefully that’s never happened to you. It’s a common nightmare, though. It stalks the minds of students from kindergarten to post-graduate studies. It causes sleepless nights, poor concentration and depression. And, when difficulty learning is more a reality than a dream, it robs young and old alike of self-esteem and motivation.

Everyone has trouble learning at some point in their lives. Whether it’s an algebra equation or a dance move, some things just don’t come quickly enough. That’s why more and more people—high school students or life-long learners—are turning to methods that help them accelerate their learning.

One of the most unique and innovative methods such people turn to is the use of creative visualization and relaxation (CVR). Patrick K. Porter, PhD, an expert in the area of CVR, says there is no better way to open mental blocks and experience a new reality in learning.

“Imagine following in the footsteps of great thinkers such as Einstein, Edison and Chopin…all of whom used creative visualization to spark their imaginations,” says Porter. “CVR helps students step into the realm of infinite possibility where imagination and creativity are limitless. The result is more success both in and out of the classroom.”

Dr. Patrick Porter knows what he’s talking about. As long ago as the mid-90s, he conducted studies on the effectiveness of CVR for accelerated learning. Dr. John Sanders, Dean of Admissions at Pikeville College in Kentucky at the time, witnessed the results of Porter’s studies there. He saw dramatic results in all the students, especially in their motivation.

Don’t think this research is old hat, though. Porter, founder of PorterVision, has continued researching new and innovative tools to further improve the success rates of CVR for accelerated learning. The most recent breakthrough is the invention of ZenFrames, glasses that use finely-tuned light and sound frequencies to synchronize the left and right sides of the brain and produce deeply relaxed brainwave activity.

Such brain entrainment technology features deep carrier frequencies. These are the actual sine waves that transport your mind into the deepest meditative states, magnifying the effect of the binaural beats and allowing you to achieve better results in far less time.

That may sound like it takes a doctorate just to understand it, but the bottom line is more motivation, stronger goals and laser-like focus…all of which drive learning to a whole new level.

Modern light and sound devices don’t require extensive learning to use; you can plug them into any MP3 player. And, 20 minutes in such mind training is equal to four hours of sleep, which helps combat the effect of sleepless study nights.

Most importantly, when used in combination with CVR audio sessions, brain entrainment builds self-confidence and sets students on track for a better, more successful learning experience. Sessions that teach users to use the tricks of successful students and end self-sabotage at school help students integrate habits into their behavior so success becomes second-nature.

Henry Ford once said, ‘Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you are right.’ It all starts with attitude. Creative visualization teaches people to access their own resources in amazing ways. From there, any kind of learning is possible.
