I’ve been away from my desk/computer for the past three weeks, so sorry for the delay in replying.
Basically - and choosing some easy images for the moment - I use one for gun, two for shoe, three for three, four for door, five for dive etc.
If the first image was a duck, then I would imagine blasting it away with a huge gun. I make it as big and loud as possible. (If it was a lake, I’d imagine the water exploding everywhere.) If the second was a mouse, I’d imagine myself in big hob-nailed boots treading on lots of mice. I’d hear the squeals and everything else. If 3 was a cloud, I’d imagine lots of big fluffy white clouds hanging from a big Christmas tree in my house. If 4 was a horse, I’d imagine opening the front door of my house and a big horse comes rushing out, sending me flying. If 5 was a fruit bowl, I’d imagine myself diving from a great height into a fruit bowl. I’d feel the fruit burst/taste it etc.
I often try to memorise lists of 30 words using the number/rhyme system. So as not to make things too easy, I sometimes use concepts - words like idea, compassion, belief etc - or even TV programmes/famous people. On one occasion, when I was attempting (and ultimately failing ) to learn German, I memorised 30 random German words. That was especially hard - but great practice!
The actions associated with my images are always the same, which helps a lot.
That said, for a long series of images (certainly 30+ if I can ever manage it), I will have to use the journey system - and probably have two images at each spot as you do. I use the journey system for playing cards.
Thanks again, for getting back to me,
