Students Build Better Learning Skills With Creative Visualization

By Andrea Di Salvo

You stare at the test, your mind blank. You’ve spent weeks cramming, but it all seems to have been for nothing. You can’t recall a thing from what you’ve studied.

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.

Whether it’s an algebra equation or a dance move, everyone has had trouble learning something at some point in his or her life. 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 at Pikeville College in Kentucky. Dr. John Sanders, Dean of Admissions at the time, witnessed the results of Porter’s studies there and saw dramatic results in all the students, especially in their motivation.

“Unless motivation is there, people aren’t going to learn. If I have seen anything in this program,

I have seen a tremendous amount of motivation on the part of these students,” said Sanders after the study.

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.

“The ZenFrames technology features deep carrier frequencies,” Porter explains. “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 rocket science, but Porter says it means taking learning to a new level through more motivation, stronger goals and laser-like focus.

ZenFrames certainly don’t take an advanced degree to use. They connect to any MP3 player. And, according to Porter, 20 minutes on ZenFrames is equal to four hours of sleep, which helps combat the effect of sleepless study nights.

Most importantly, when used in combination with PorterVision CVR audio sessions, ZenFrames build self-confidence and set students on track for a better, more successful learning experience. Sessions like “Using the Tricks of Highly Successful Students” and “End Self-Sabotage at School” help students integrate habits into their behavior so success becomes second-nature. That, says Porter, is what ZenFrames and PorterVision’s CVR sessions are all about.

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

Dr. Patrick Porter is the author of a number of books on mind technology including the award-winning Awaken the Genius and his new release, Thrive in Overdrive. He is the creator the ZenFrames Portable Achievement Device. Learn more at
