Do you struggle with the Memory Palace technique to complete large learning goals?
For example, have you always wanted to memorize a substantial body of scripture, but…
Kept putting it off?
I know, I know…
We all have something in our life that continuously gets pushed to the bottom of our never-ending to-do list…
We all say “I’ll eventually get around to it”…
We’re all guilty of never making moves to cross that item off our list.
My guest for this podcast, Mike McKinley, has managed to AVOID that mistake when it came to making steps toward completing one MASSIVE goal.
Mike is an alumni of the Magnetic Memory Method Masterclass. He is also an electrical engineer and specialist in the area of radio frequencies.
On top of those duties, Mike is a husband, father, seminary graduate, and full-time employee. Using the memory techniques he’s learned from the MMM Masterclass, he completed a three-year seminary course and memorized 66 chapters of the Psalms (and counting)!
So if you’re intimidated by the idea of undertaking an entire course to improve your memory…
If you feel as though you don’t have the time to commit in an already packed schedule…
Or you think, “How could I ever memorize something so lengthy?”…
Just click play on the button above now and learn from Mike all about:
- Why information is easier to remember in story form
- The reason early Christians memorized the scriptures
- Why recitation is an important memory improvement exercise
- How actors and memory students are one and the same
- The way manufacturing “spoiled us” with uniformity
- The importance of small memorization goals and practicing the loci method when taking on large learning projects
- The role of visualization exercises in memorization
- The role of compounding or compressing in memorization
- A tip on how to “reuse” celebrities, like actors, multiple times as symbols in memory work
- The way long-form memorization is like running a marathon
- The reason dogma has no place in the world of memory training and why memory is a creative event
Of course, you might be thinking…
What if I Want To Memorize Scripture In Another Language?
Check out this incredible success story from one of Mike’s fellow Magnetic Memory Method students:

Like Jeannie, I also use a Memory Palace for memorizing scripture in other languages.
Here’s a demonstration and discussion of how I make it work with a Sanskrit text called Ribhu Gita:
What’s the secret to this memory method?
Take it one S.I.P. at a time:
Study memory techniques
Implement what you learn progressively so you improve your…
Practice (daily is best)
It really doesn’t get any easier than that, and the outcomes of having scripture in your mind and heart are profound.
