In the 1991 movie, Defending Your Life, Meryl Streep and Albert Brooks die and meet in an afterlife that greatly resembles the present-day U.S. They are required to prove their worth by demonstrating in court how they showed courage while alive. Each has a defender and a prosecutor, and each appears before two judges. The judges, defenders and prosecutors belong to the group of “big brains” who describe themselves according to how much of their mental ability they are able to use. One says, “I am a 51 percenter,” another says, “I am a 54 percenter,” and so on.

Because it is estimated that the average person uses only between five and eight percent of their brain, while geniuses like Einstein might have utilized 15 percent of their mental ability, the characters in the movie represent a group whose brain use is exceptionally high. They were each intuitive, wise, understanding and had great humor. It was the judges’ job to decide whether the person under review moved on to a more advanced level or returned to Earth for another lifetime. If you’re curious about who advanced where, watch the movie.

The theme of the movie was living a life of courage — living without fear. The point of this article is that you can maximize your mental ability. How?

You can find books and CDs with exercises to increase your IQ, to balance the left and right hemispheres of your brain and to improve your memory. Companies like Centerpointe Research Institute and The Monroe Institute, with their respective Holosync® and Hemisync® CDs and tapes, can help you experience deeper levels of awareness and access, and expand your mental ability. Reading courses can help you boost your reading speed and retention. Meditation and other spiritual practices deepen and expand your consciousness and develop your intuitive abilities.

While all of these resources may be beneficial, the crown jewel is hypnosis.

Hypnosis allows you to access and work with that vast part of your mind called the subconscious, unconscious or, as some term it, the other-than-conscious. In hypnosis, you can work with habits, emotions, intuition and memory. You can learn faster and recall information more easily. You can tap into your creative ability and allow ideas to flow. You can work with values and explore deeply held beliefs. And you can use hypnosis as a gateway to deep meditation.

In other words, you do not need to be “working” on a problem to see a hypnotherapist. You can work with a hypnotherapist to access and utilize more and more of this “other than conscious,” or you can learn self-hypnosis so you can explore this vast part of your mind on your own.

Think about how much better your life could be if you were able to use hypnosis to control pain, get your creative juices flowing, be more sensitive to those around you, be more intuitive, learn faster and remember more, or increase and expand your mental ability?

What if we could increase our mental ability by even two percent? How amazing would that be? The best part is that no one really knows what the limits are. Wouldn’t it be exciting to explore this new frontier?
