Many of us wish we had a better memory enabling us to learn faster. This post discusses how perfect memory works.
What is Perfect Memory?
Our right brain's mass memory capacity stores all we experience through our five senses including inspirations from other sources. Strong connections between our right and left brain functions enable access this massive storehouse then bring genius-like ideas, inventions and practical solutions into the world. This right/left interchange in the brain is the way we experience perfect memory.
Here's an example: Remember The Minority Report with Tom Cruise? In the movie, three children with the gift of premonition (a "subconscious" right brain function), projected images of the future into a screen. Cruise, using his advanced left brain "conscious" abilities, was able to organize those images into a logical sequence of events. This right/left brain subconscious/conscious interchange led to the location and arrest of a future perpetrator in a crime.
Right brain learning was developed in Japan, where Dr. Makoto Shichida made popular what became known as "Right Brain Education". On any given day in his 400+ Shichida Child Academies you'll find dozens of children developing remarkable abilities like remembering up to 1,000 objects in sequential order, instantly solving complex math equations, and flipping through a 500 page book then scoring highly on a comprehension test.
Games and exercises that are targeted for right brain stimulation are often simple to play. They can quickly help increase a child's creativity, rapid thought processes, concentration and memory, as well as help develop musical aptitude, intuition and more.
Learning foreign languages are easy for young children. To them, it's effortless. In fact, they can master many languages at once through sound-based accelerated learning methods. Here's how.
Sound-based learning incorporates the subtleties of patterns, rhythm, frequencies, tone, pitch and accents. Young children, because their left brain functions are not as active as those in adults, are easily able to synthesize these subtleties through the right brain with no effort. So, if four languages are spoken in their environment, they will master all four without confusion.

Accelerated math skills are attainable even by children who don't seem to have any abilities or interest in the subject. In this post I'll discuss various ways math can be learned. I'll also share the most effective rapid learning math programs available.
Those with perfect pitch have developed right/left brain connections that allow them to sing, play or identify any musical note from memory without a reference. Babies who receive perfect pitch stimulation training will, when older, often be able to quickly pick up and master singing or playing musical instruments.
Have you ever heard a melody playing in your head like a recording? Some have the ability to transfer a melody to almost any musical instrument with relative ease.
Mind mapping helps children organize their thoughts and greatly simplify what they learn. There are several ways to approach this way of accelerated education. We will be discussing the most popular version taught by Tony Buzan, who, arguably, originated mind mapping.
Mind mapping allows anyone of nearly any age to record an idea, help brainstorm and problem solve, even take notes during class. It's very visual, organic, colorful and creative. And it's a fantastic way to keep from getting bored during class because students are engaging the creative (right) and logical (left) parts of their brain while making one. This action keeps children more alert and will help them learn more and easily retain a lot more information in a short amount of time.
Olfactory stimulation can change our brain waves and mood in powerful ways. Certain types of stimulation like food smells tend to influence our thoughts in ways that are not conducive to learning. Chemical smells from air fresheners, perfume, and even some essential oils can also be distracting to the point where they inhibit our brain's ability to concentrate properly for learning.
Tactile stimulation can be beneficial to children's learning or it can become a hindrance if not utilized properly in the environment.
When looking around your children's classroom, for example, furniture and other objects can produce conscious or subconscious feelings that can affect their ability to concentrate or learn. These feelings can arise by handling or by simply looking or thinking about them.
Colors can also play an important role in stimulating visual pathways. For example, pastel colors are more soothing and relaxing than strong bright ones. Pastels help children enter into the best state of mind for learning. Below are some examples showing what some experts call the "positive expressions of color". You may find this interesting!
Visual Stimulation Helps Shape Our Child's Mind in Powerful Ways
When considering how we learn through visual stimulation, science tells us the neurons that handle visual processing make up about 30% of the brain's cortex - more than double that of hearing and touch combined. I believe what we take in through our eyes to be the most influential of all our senses. Through visual processing, our brain stores both negative and positive impressions at conscious and subconscious levels. These imprints can have a profound influence on the way we think and learn.
Studies by experts in child development show that different types of sensory stimulation in their environment can have an impact on your children's ability to learn.
What Types of Sensory Stimulation Block a Child's Ability to Learn?
Consider this scenario: The TV's blasting a rock video. We see toys and clothes, half-empty potato chip bags and pop bottles scattered around the room - there's clutter everywhere. From the kitchen, you catch the whiff of burnt toast. In the bedroom you hear parents arguing and there's hitting and throwing.
The Suzuki Method is one of the most effective ways of teaching children to play musical instruments at an early age. It was developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. His techniques help develop accurate pitch recognition and musical genius in children.
As a small boy, Shinichi was surrounded by the sound of violins at his father's violin factory. At age 17, he taught himself violin by listening to recordings and trying to imitate what he had heard. Later he began teaching at the Imperial School of Music and at the Kunitachi Music School in Tokyo.
Broaden Your Child's Mind with Encyclopedic Knowledge
Encyclopedic knowledge is an ability very young children can develop. Thanks to child development experts Glenn Doman and Dr. Makoto Shichida, their rapid flashing learning methods have proven that normal children (and those with learning challenges) can learn almost anything. Using this technique, your children can even develop rapid memory recall, increased vocabulary and more! That's because there's more focus on stimulating and strengthening right brain functions where massive amounts of information is stored and can later be recalled. Read more here.
Interest in right and left brain functions began to attract widespread attention after Dr. Roger Sperry of the California Institute of Technology won the Nobel Prize for his work on the functions of the brain's hemispheres. Since then, right/left brain theory has been utilized in areas such as specialized education, business models and even medical practices.
Below is a comprehensive list with descriptions of how we learn and experience life through our right and left brain functions. You'll discover things about yourself you may have never known before!
According to experts, some types of auditory stimulation can be beneficial for learning while other types can be detrimental. I'll discuss both in this post.
Auditory Stimulation Using Classical Music Can Help Children Study
Research shows that playing a Largo cadence, such as experienced in Baroque music, is highly beneficial for study. This is because the beats per minute (BPM) of Largo is the same as the alpha brain wave state. The alpha state is the most receptive, alert state of mind we can be in, which is ideal for learning. Other classical music, such as the waltz, reportedly have a BPM that's in harmony the natural rhythm of our body. The waltz helps raise our energies and consciousness upward into positive states of mind, which is also helpful for learning.
Child Flash Card Games Help Develop Surprising New Learning Abilities
Rapid learning child flash card games such as the ones we carry use an accelerated educational method which helps your child learn almost anything faster and much easier than the typical flash card games used in most classrooms. Your child can develop abilities such as:
Professor Makoto Shichida is a pioneer in the development of an accelerated learning program know as the Shichida Method. He is a well-known figure in Japan who has been implementing his unique teaching methods for over 40 years.
Since developing the Shichida Method, he has founded over 400 Child Academies in Japan and written more than 100 books, some of which remain on the bestsellers list in Japan.
For many years, this Doman Method of education has been producing some amazing results in babies and young children. Let's talk about what makes the work of Glenn Doman so important to children's education and development.
