Control of the Mind



  • Get hold of an elastic band (the local 'postie' drops hundreds of these) and place it around the arm, ensuring that this does not restrict the blood-flow. 
  • Now you need to decide on something you do not either wish to do, or wish to think of - maybe you would like to give up smoking or something, or maybe you would like to stop thinking about something you keep thinking of and would wish not to. 
  • Every time you do this something, or think of this something 'twang' the elastic band onto the arm (ouch!); this stings and the pain, after doing this over and over again, will train the mind not to think of it. 
  • You can also do this to stop the mind from wandering from thought to thought, and this is an ideal way to go after trying some fairly easy things first.
