The Learning State

The Learning State
You are learning all the time by engaging with the world, attend-
ing live trainings, or interacting with books, videos, or CD-ROMs.
All learning is processed by the unconscious mind, which is filter-
ing and sorting all our experiences as well as storing our
memories. The conscious mind is not designed to work in that
way. As we stated earlier, it would be overloaded by the vast
amount of information arriving incessantly.
Memories are accessed, based on the state you are in when you
were learning. That state is also coded as part of the memory.
Therefore to retrieve that information, you need to be in that same
state again. Some memories are accessible only when you are in
that state. So if you are having difficulties remembering some-
thing, it could mean you need to first match that state. Then you
will find the information you want is readily accessible.
The best state for learning is a light trance state. You will be able
to retrieve the information most easily if you go into that light
trance state again. Here’s how to go into a light trance.
It may be easier to have someone read you the instructions, or you
make a tape recording to play back. When reading the instructions,
speak softly and slowly, in a trance-like manner. In other words,
be in the state you want other people to go into by going into it
slightly yourself.
For this exercise you need to have something to look at comfort-
ably across the room, above eye level. This could be a small object,
mark, or picture on the wall, or you could make a black or
coloured spot out of paper, and stick in on the wall about four feet
above head height. It may also be useful to have some slow,
‘trancy’ music playing in the background. We use music a lot in
training, as it is a good way of inducing certain states - as you will
know from listening to movie soundtracks.
