2. FIRST STEP TO PRACTICE VISUALISATION


Imagine you are walking up to your house. You can see the path, you can see your house. You notice what color the house is and how many windows there are. You see (in your mind) your front door, you see the color of your front door, and you remember on which side the handle is. Now, in your mind, you press or turn the handle and you imagine walking through that front door. What do you see now?

You get the drift. This is what I mean with seeing things in your mind. Now here is something to have fun with

and you might have guessed it already: daydreaming is really beneficial. If you have done it in the past, good. If your teachers called you a dreamer, now that is like a certificate that you are a natural in this field.

Read through the next list of 10 words.

Each one of them: pause and (close your eyes) and see them in your mind’s eye:

From a learning point of view, and taking responsibility for your own learning, you may take the next step and take a piece of paper and write down 10 items; maybe your shopping list, and read the first one and see it in your mind. If you have to close your eyes, that’s fine and it might help. It is not necessary, but if it helps, that’s fine. Now read the second item and visualise it. And so on.

(STOP AND DO THIS EXERCISE AND ONLY THEN READ ON!)

How do you feel with that?

Easy, isn’t it.

Yes, that is what I mean with visualisation.

Didn’t I promise you that memory techniques and remembering is easy.

Step by step, and everybody can do it.

However, I hear you worrying: what about the ‘difficult’ stuff?

Now that’s what the next section is about.
