Stuttering Tips – 3 Mental Speaking Techniques You Can Start Using Today

By

OK, you finally convinced me.

Guess what I decided to share with you today?

Something I have received a lot of emails about…

Pickup lines… I mean the “pickup lines” of stuttering
dissolution process.

Your most popular requests are:
“Tell me what to do now so I can speak fluently right away” OR “Teach me TECHNIQUES/TRICKS which I can apply and IMMEDIATELY START SPEAKING FLUENTLY and smoothly”.

As a member of Stuttering Dissolution, you should already know by
now that “pickup lines” ONLY WORK if you have the RIGHT
FOUNDATION, which I call “THE INNER GAME OF STUTTERING
DISSOLUTION”, to support those “pickup lines”.

However, I couldn’t resist your persistent requests and I decided to
share the 3 MOST EFFECTIVE MENTAL TECHNIQUES with you
which you can start using… well, the next time you speak!

Now, I CAN’T GUARANTEE that those will work like a magic and
will enable you to speak 100% fluently right away. However, as a result
of being in this community for almost 10 years and meeting and working
with easily thousands of PWS(people who stutter), I know that these are
some simple mental techniques which you can get highly BENEFITED from.

Try and let me know your experiences with them.

Ready?

Here they are…

1- Imagine You Are Speaking From Your Chest/Belly/Head/etc.

Pretend that you are NOT speaking from your mouth. That would
take the focus AWAY from your mouth/lips/tongue area and will fool
your brain and thought patterns.

Of course this cannot make you fluent as soon as you try using it
but try and see how it will help. Try pretending like you are
speaking from your chest/belly/head/etc. and IMAGINE the sounds
are coming from those areas.

My choice was my chest; however you might get better results by
focusing on another part of your body. Try and see what works the
best for you.

2- Imagine Words Are Flowing Like The Water Of A Smooth River Or
Words Are Made Of Air

You can also use a visualization of WORDS FLOWING SMOOTHLY in the
AIR. I used to think like the words are MADE OF AIR and they are
FLYING SMOOTHLY all around my body.

In conjunction with the above technique, you can also imagine you
are speaking from your chest and there is water flowing out from
your chest where the words are TRAVELLING IN THAT WATER
FLOW.

It may sound a bit weird in the beginning, it DID to me, but mind
is very POWERFUL and we shouldn’t underestimate the help we can
get from our mind power.

Remember that any tool which can help us move a step forward to
reaching our speaking goals is always more than welcome:)

3- Inner-Self Role Playing

Depending on the situation, PRETEND like you are extremely
confident/relaxed/sure of yourself/positive/assertive/etc.
It should feel and be like you are ROLE PLAYING.

Don’t get me wrong though, you are NOT being somebody else,
you are just being yourself with “PRETENDED” FEELINGS and MOOD.

I don’t know if you’ve ever taken acting classes before, but if
you did you would know how positive it reflects to your
speech during the play.

This might differ from person to person but I personally benefited
from this technique a lot.

Remember, your body is still there, YOU are the one who is
speaking, but your INNER WORLD is totally different, it is the
inner world of a role model who would easily handle that
speaking situation by the support of his/her inner game and
positive mood.

If you don’t have self confidence yet, PRETEND like you do and
speak like you do. Role play that inner self of your role model.

I am not sure if this will make any sense to you but you need to
model until you BECOME the role model 😉

You kind of forced and convinced me to give you the “toys”
before you absorb and internalize the foundation and fundamentals
of the subject but hope these mental techniques help.

Let me know your outcomes and experiences with them.

All the best,

Chazzler
