Before we get to the meat of things, I want you to do a little exercise. Please do this honestly. No peeping allowed!
Below is a list of 20 words. Time yourself, please. Take only THREE MINUTES to memorise the list. Then cover or move the list away and recall as many words as you can.
So, how did you do? Not too well? To make you feel better, most people won't do any better than you did. We need to train our brains to memorise and recall a list like this, especially in such a short time. But, I promise you, very soon you will be able to recall a list like this 100%. A Promise? Yes!
Now I want you think about your favourite song. You got one? Ok, can you remember the words? Yes? Have you ever actually studied the words to be able to recall it, except for some specific reason, like you being a musician? If the answer is no, why do you remember songs so easily? Have you ever seen a concert pianist play a piece of music without a single note on paper in front of him? How do they do that? Ok, practice and experience will help. But, more importantly, we remember music so well because the notes and the words itself are linked together. The important word here is LINK.
Our brains remember things better if we can link the different facts or bits of information together. Why do we remember stories so well? It is because in the story things get linked together.
I'm concentrating on staying healthy, having peace, being happy, remembering what is important, taking in nature and animals, spending time reading, trying to understand the universe, where science and the spiritual meet.
