The Memorization Method
1. When utilizing this book, the memorizer is advised to deal with one verse at a time.
2. Write out the entire verse longhand in the same format this book uses and speak it while you write it. That way your mind, eye, hand, mouth, and ear are all working together in unison.
a. While writing the verse in the provided format, you may notice that there are no more than eight words per line, called an eye’s glance by ancient memorizers. This essential brevity of each line allows you to retain the short series of words in your short-term memory.
b. The number of words are indicated in each line’s right-hand column. These numbers function as a temporary memory crutch as you repeatedly write out each line of your verse. Once you have memorized the verse, you won’t need the reminder of numbered words in each phrase.
c. Each line or phrase is arranged to start with a conjunction if possible. To neatly line up the ands, buts, etc. gives a sense of uniformity to the verse and makes it easier to memorize.
3. Write each verse over and over until you have it completely memorized. Speaking the verse aloud is the number one aid from antiquity and today for memory retention. You must orally repeat the memorized Word aloud over and over again to settle it deep into your heart.
4. Once you have memorized a verse, use the same technique to learn the next one. This book includes some suggested “starting points” in the appendices.
