Video making and its associated benefits for stutterers

         Among all the mediums of communication videos has been the most effective as it is almost being live to the audience followed by the audios and write ups. The things we watch can penetrate into deeper consciousness than the things we hear that is why people want to meet and have face-to-face conversation.


As a stutterer I know and feel that seeing myself in videos gives me better understanding of my behaviors and patterns associated at different moments. I often record my voice over the phone or when someone checks into my room and we have a conversation because at that moment recording videos is highly uncalled for.


Practice to make your videos and watch them as many times as you can and within some days attitudinal difference shall dawn upon you. It has happened to many people including me and has been suggested in all the therapies available today.
Why don’t we make videos when there are so many benefits attached.Reason is ‘we are ashamed of seeing our-self stuttering helplessly’. If we are not accepted by our own soul, is it worth expecting from other?All the philosophers and all the faiths are agree that world around us is manifestation of our own self. This implies the day we will accept our nature in its pristine form,the world around us would change in accordance with the divine rule.
        Nowadays most of us have multimedia phones that could be used as a tool to record videos. Just set the mobile phone in video recording mode and put it with support at nearby table or raised place. Sit at the comfortable distance and talk Alone or with your friend, brother or neighbor. Replay that video as many times as you can over some days till you stop feeling ashamed of watching yourself stutter in that video. The key point is the day you stop feeling guilty or ashamed of your stammering, believe me, inner transformation shall begin.

        After some years when you watch your old videos, seeing how you stuttered and how you spoke in past shall give you immense satisfaction because now you are watching with the same eyes but with the different ‘YOU’.

Please let me know your opinions through comments.
