Since my children’s birth I have experienced memory loss. We always talk about memory loss in the process of aging but there are other significant events in our lives that also can cause memory loss. Most of the times they reversible and in my experience meditation has been the best tool to do so. There are many various techniques which can be used to enhance and strengthen the memory. In my youth I have used Silva Methods techniques which is to relate words to pictures. In my adulthood I started to anchor episodes, To do-lists and important subjects to my emotions and a physical movement, and used that as a trigger.
