Forgive if this has been asked before but whenever I try practising the Method of Loci (I’ve only just started practising),
I can visualise any object for just a fraction of a second. I can see the object clearly but just for a second and can’t ‘hold it’ in my mind’s eye.
Also, I can only see the object that I am focusing on, the surroundings appear vague and dark. For example, if I try to visualise a chair I can see it clearly for a second but objects (table, etc) the near it would appear vague.
Is it just me or did everyone have this problem initially?
