The Step-by-Step to a Powerful Memory
This system will take 1 month for you to develop. Take 15 minutes every day to dedicate to this training. For the first month, your eyes will take about 5 minutes time to adjust to daylight reading.
Find a dark room in your house free of distractions. Any room will do, many people use their bathroom. The only requirement is a bright lamp or ceiling lamp in the room.
Sit down next to the light switch. Grab a book, any book will do, and the piece of paper that has a rectangular hole cut out of it the size of a paragraph.
Cover the book page using your paper cut out, exposing only one paragraph and hold the book out in front of you. Close your eyes for a few seconds and open them shortly after. Adjust the distance from your eyes to the book so you can instantly focus on the writing.
Turn off the lights. You will see an afterglow as your eyes adjust to the dark. Flip the lights on for a split second and then off again.
You will have a visual imprint in your eyes of the material that was in front of you. When this imprint fades, flip the light on again for a split second, again staring at the material.
Repeat this process until you can recall every word in the paragraph in order.
You should be able to actually see the paragraph and read it from the imprint in your mind.
