One of the biggest challenges or blocks to learning PhotoReading is that you already know how to read. Many of us have forgotten the process of how we first learn something. This exercise creates such a learning experience.

We are taught to focus hard and read carefully, because the most important thing about reading is on the page in front of us. This is like insisting that everything you need in order to draw the Star has to come from the mirror. If this is your only strategy you will develop "brain lock"— you will go back and forth, unable to make progress.

Think of what a Star looks like. You know it starts with a point at the top. How would your hand move to draw the first line? You have to make this move regardless of what the reflected image in the mirror looks like. The only way to successfully draw the Star is to look at the Star behind your eyes—in your mind—and then draw as you would draw the inner picture, by moving your hand.

The mirror will tell you only two things. It will give you feedback about whether you are staying between the lines, and it will let you know when to change direction.

When you reach ajunction and need to change direction, think of the internal image and which way your hand has to move. Move by first feeling the correct movement and check the mirror only to know you are staying between the lines.

The same strategy applies to reading. We need to read from "behind our eyes." We must rely on our internal pictures and feelings, checking the page to know when our feelings must change and when our inner pictures must
