How to create a mind palace:
learn more - "What is a mind palace?" example of how to create one.
- In the first picture, starting at the garden gate = 00 front patio = 01 corner alcove wall =02 window = 03........and so forth..... down the drive and around the back garden to 09.......then 0 starts at the back door into the house.
- Next picture, 0 - 30 from the back door into a small hallway that includes a toilet on the left. From the hall is the kitchen.
- 31 - 45 is in the living room
- 46 - 52 covers the front door stairs and hall.
- 53 - 62 sons bedroom
- 63 - 79 my room
- 80 - 90 daughters room
- 91 - 99 bathroom.
Each number is converted into an image using the Major System by changing numbers to letter sounds using phonetics, resulting in creating a word.
In my Major system 00 is sauce. The locus for this is the garden gates - I visualise a large bottle of tomato ketchup blocking my front gate with red sauce exploding out of the top.
01 - seed - on the front patio a big brown seed rolling around because it has no soil.
02 - Sun - this is a dark spot in the garden so I imagine a large sun lighting up this corner.
03 - Sumo - not many people have a Sumo wrestler posed outside their patio window!
04 - sore - I have an arm with some open sores holding up my porch.
05 - soil - Huge mound of soil blocks my driveway and entrance to the backdoor.
so on and so on until you have images throughout the house
93 - in my bath is a bare bum!
94 - my shower is a spitting bear
95 - a beach ball is stuffed in bathroom cabinet
96 - in the sink is a hairy bush - (we won't elaborate on that)
97 - book drying on radiator
98 - joint of beef on the window sill
99 - baby sat on the loo
so say for instance I want to remember "Auntie Gert's" phone number which might be 930402.
first break it down into 3 two digit numbers
93 = bum 04= sore 02= sun
order is important otherwise you might get the numbers mixed up. Therefore, I would visualise Auntie Gert out in the garden lying in a hammock with a bare bum which is getting sore from sunburn.
Now who can forget that image!!!!
When I want to remember Aunt Gert's number I visualise the image think of bum-which converts to 93, getting sore = 04, in the sun = 02. Aunt Gert's number = 930402.
The madder, sillier, absurder you make the image the more likely you will remember it -
Thus, if i have another palace set aside for tel numbers, Aunt Gert might be in there with her sunburn.
