Are you painstakingly saying each word in your head? The mechanics of doing this may actually get in the way. It might be slowing you down, and you’re probably only retaining about 10 percent of what you read.

The average American reads for two hours a day: emails, newspapers, magazines, websites, road signs, books, ingredients, instructions… and on and on. And your critical mind can interfere and distract you from simply being able to absorb what you read.

There’s a tool you can use called PhotoReading. It teaches you some of the techniques of those very rare people with a “photographic memory.”

What PhotoReading allows you to do is break free of your critical mind, so you can absorb the information. You’ll be able to understand what you’re reading at a much quicker rate and dramatically increase the speed of your reading.

In fact, you can try some PhotoReading right now.

Flip through the book you want to PhotoRead and write down 25 or so words that you’ll use later to trigger your subconscious to recall what you’ve seen on the pages.

Then, you want to put your mind into a state called “photo focus.”

To start, get yourself into a comfortable chair and hold the book you want to PhotoRead at a 45-degree angle away from you.

Before you begin to PhotoRead, you want to be in a deep state of relaxation.

Then, focus your attention on the binding between the two open pages. Here’s the trick: You want to expand your peripheral awareness to include a vision, or a photo, of what’s on the pages in front of you. You don’t read, you just take a picture with your brain.

Then, begin to go through the book, turning each page and “PhotoReading” each two-page spread for only two seconds.

PhotoRead from front to back, and then from back to front to solidify what you’ve seen in your subconscious mind. The most important thing is to NOT read specific words.

Now, the best way to retain what you’ve just seen is to sleep on it, and get yourself into a relaxed state the next day. But for right now, you can look back at your trigger words, and you’ll be able to recall huge amounts of what you saw with relatively little effort.

I’ve discovered a helpful set of DVDs that describe the PhotoReading technique, how to enter the photo-focus state and gives you other ways to take in all that information and use it.

For example, in this program, you’ll discover how to use another memory enhancer called Mind Mapping. Like the photo-focus technique, it also helps you use both sides of your brain so you can visualize and retain huge amounts of information.

And Mind Mapping has dozens of applications. It’s not just for books. You can use it to remember recipes, names, schedules… you name it.
