Although I?ve read and researched some promising things about Yoga Nidra, I?m still on the fence about whether to use it or not in order to increase the efficiency of learning new material for school, having come across only a few articles on the subject over the internet. However, if anyone here can vouch for its utility, I came up with a few questions below about the nature of this ancient technique. If anyone has experience with Yoga Nidra and can answer some of these questions, I?d be all the more grateful. Thank you all in advance!
- How ?deep? do you have to go to make the desired impressions for learning?
- How will I know in my practice that I?ve reached ideal state of mind for making the desired impressions?
- Will I be able to absorb visual or auditory information (i.e. seen from a projector or heard through headphones?) while in Yoga Nidra?
- If I happen to fall asleep during Yoga Nidra when the information is being absorbed, will I still remember any of it?
- Does the subconscious actually register everything a person has experienced?
- How long does it normally take to become proficient enough at Yoga Nidra to the point where achieving the ideal state of mind happens in a matter of minutes?
- Is there any effort involved in being able to consciously recall the information that was absorbed subconsciously in Yoga Nidra?
- Is information that is learned in Yoga Nidra really retained for life?
- If I absorb information at high speeds in Yoga Nidra, will I be able to remember all of it clearly when in a waking state?
- Would the ability to learn in Yoga Nidra eliminate the need to develop a photographic memory?
- How is the information seen in a waking state once it has been learned in Yoga Nidra? Conceptually or word for word?
