The powerful insights from Alpha meditationhas a curiosity and motivated me to practice it twice a day everyday, like the training suggests
Even adults struggle with being able to focus. We get tired and lose concentration. Our students feel the same and we keep telling them to pay attention …… but never teach them how. Today, I learned how to teach them to pay attention.
Being able to understand how to help a child self regulate their thoughts instead of going into a trauma by teaching them to become aware in the present moment is very valuable. Also, I have successfully used the Anchoring method that we learned today in my graduate school and I can tell with confidence that it does work.
I am very excited about the new knowledge I received today and looking forward to applying this to my classroom and see how it works.
I had a rough day today before I came to the training and I had a lot going on in my mind. In spite of all those distractions, I was able to do a very good job of memorizing and recalling information using the technique taught. Our students go through similar experiences everyday in their life and I feel good to know that this will work for them too.
Our students sit through and learn 7 different subjects everyday and I used to wonder how will they remember so much content at the end of the day. Now I feel with these tools, we can help them remember and recall easily a wide range of topics and subjects.
I am a very logical and analytical person and I don’t allow myself to go or think outside of logic. I surprised myself today by actively engaging in the creative visualization method and accessed my creative side which I don’t allow myself to do. I am now looking forward to applying this knowledge to my high school science classes that I teach.
As I was going through this new concept, I found it very new and abstract and there was some resistance in my mind. But taking it slowly and step by step ensured that we stayed focused. I understand now how my students feel when they are introduced to a new concept they don’t understand. Through the creative visualization method, I learned today how we can make learning a joyful experience.
-As a new teacher to this school, this was a confidence boost to be able to get up and be in front of people that I don’t know and haven’t worked with. With what I as able to accomplish, I never felt it was possible and now I feel very confident about myself as a teacher.
It was very insightful to see how when we overcome the doubts of the mind about our learning abilities, we can accomplish so much with simple and powerful techniques that help us overcome the fear of abstract or unknown concepts. I learned it is important to set aside the mind’s doubts and have a growth mindset rather than a fixed mindset.
Being able to identify the root cause of distractions and why students lose focus and concentration is a great insight. I now feel I will have better engagement with my students by helping them become self aware. I am already thinking of making this mediation a part of my class so we increase awareness in the classroom.
I think it is very important to teach these new methods to children early on so they learn to become more confident about themselves. I want to see more of how this has helped Elementary and Middle school students. But this is a very unique way to teach and learn.
