Exercise for School Exams
Below is a good exercise by Sara Berkovits, to instill confidence and mental clarity in preparation for the exam you are taking.
Sit upright and comfortably in a chair, with your feet touching the ground and your palms rested on your thighs, just as you have seen images of a Pharaoh sitting in his chair. Do not cross your hands or feet.
Begin by letting out a long, slow exhalation from your mouth and inhaling normally through the nose. Do this three times and then allow your breathing to find its normal, peaceful rhythm.
On the next long exhalation from your mouth, choose the grade you wish to receive for the specific exam you are taking.
See, sense and feel yourself knowing the answers to each question. Do not go into detail. Just see yourself knowing the answer and writing it out with assurance and confidence.
Breathe out once through the mouth, long and slow.
See that you are now receiving the result of the exam. See the grade you want written on your paper. See it clearly.
Say to yourself “I understand that by believing in myself, I bring about the best in me”.
Breathe again, long and slow through the mouth and then open your eyes.
Do this exercise every morning as soon as you wake up and before engaging in any morning activities.
Do it once more, before you fall asleep.
Do it every day throughout the school examination period.
Remember, by aligning yourself with your true powerful spirit, you have the inherent ability to create the experience you wish to have. Also, remember that, whatever the outcome is, as we say in Greece, everything is for the best.
Above all, Be Happy!
