The Art of Concentrating by Means of Practical Psychic Exercises (Part 6)


Exercise 16

When You Read. No one can think without first concentrating his

thoughts on the subject in hand. Every man and woman should train

himself to think clearly. An excellent exercise is to read some

short story and then write just an abridged statement. Read an

article in a newspaper, and see in how few words you can express

it. Reading an article to get only the essentials requires the

closest Psychic – Concentration. If you are unable to write out what you

read, you will know you are weak in Psychic – Concentration. Instead of

writing it out you can express it orally if you wish. Go to your

room and deliver it as if you were talking to some one. You will

find exercises like this of the greatest value in developing

Psychic – Concentration and learning to think.

After you have practiced a number of these simple exercises read

a book for twenty minutes and then write down what you have read.

The chances are that at first you will not remember very many

details, but with a little practice you will be able to write a

very good account of what you have read. The closer the

Psychic – Concentration the more accurate the account will be.

It is a good idea when time is limited to read only a short

sentence and then try to write it down word for word. When you

are able to do this, read two or more sentences and treat

similarly. The practice will produce very good results if you

keep it up until the habit is fixed.

If you will just utilize your spare time in practicing exercises

like those suggested you can gain wonderful powers of

Psychic – Concentration. You will find that in order to remember every word

in a sentence you must keep out every thought but that which you

wish to remember, and this power of inhibition alone will more

than compensate for the trouble of the exercise. Of course,

success in all of the above depends largely upon cultivating,

through the closest Psychic – Concentration, the power to image or picture

what you read; upon the power, as one writer expresses it, of

letting the mountains of which we hear loom before us and the

rivers of which we read roll at our feet.

Exercise 17

Psychic – Concentration Overcomes Bad Habits. If you have a habit that you

want to get rid of, shut your eyes and imagine that your real

self is standing before you. Now try the power of affirmation;

say to yourself, “You are not a weakling; you can stop this habit

if you want to. This habit is bad and you want to break it.” Just

imagine that you are some one else giving this advice. This is

very valuable practice. You, in time, see yourself as others see

you. The habit loses its power over you and you are free.

If you will just form the mental image of controlling yourself as

another person might, you will take a delight in breaking bad

habits. I have known a number of men to break themselves of

drinking in this way.

Exercise 18

Watch Psychic – Concentration. Sit in a chair and place a clock with a

second hand on the table. Follow the second hand with your eyes

as it goes around. Keep this up for five minutes, thinking of

nothing else but the second hand, This is a very good exercise

when you only have a few minutes to spare, if you are able to

keep every other thought in the stream of consciousness

subordinate to it. As there is little that is particularly

interesting about the second hand, it is hard to do this, but in

the extra effort of will power required to make it successful

lies its value. Always try to keep as still as possible during

these exercises.

In this way you can gain control over nerves and this quieting

effect is very good for them.

Exercise 19

Faith Psychic – Concentration. A belief in the power to concentrate is of

course very important. I purposely did not put this exercise in

the beginning where it naturally belongs because I wanted you to

know that you could learn to concentrate. If you have practiced

the above exercises you have now developed this Psychic – Concentration

power to a considerable extent and therefore you have faith in

the power of Psychic – Concentration, but you can still become a much

stronger believer in it.

We will say that you have some desire or wish you want fulfilled,

or that you need some special advice. You first clearly picture

what is wanted and then you concentrate on getting it. Have

absolute faith that your desires will be realized. Believe that

it will according to your belief be fulfilled. Never, at this

time, attempt to analyze the belief. You don’t care anything

about the whys and wherefores. You want to gain the thing you

desire, and if you concentrate on it in the right way you will

get it.

A Caution. Never think you will not succeed, but picture what is

wanted as already yours, and yours it surely will be.

Self-Distrust. Do you ever feel distrust in yourself? If You do,

just ask yourself, which self do I mistrust? Then say: my higher

self cannot be affected. Then think of the wonderful powers of

the higher self. There is a way to overcome all difficulties, and

it is a delight for the human soul to do so. Instead of wasting

precious thought-force by dreading or fearing a disagreeable

interview or event, instead devote the time and concentrated

thought in how to make the best of the interview or event and you

will find that it will not be as unpleasant as you thought it

would be. Most of our troubles are but imaginary, and it is the

mental habit of so dreading them that really acts as a magnet in

attracting those that really do come. Your evil circumstances are

created or attracted by your own negative, fears and wrong

thoughts, and are a means of teaching you to triumph over all

evils, by discovering that which is inherent within yourself.

You will find it helpful in overcoming self-distrust, to stop and

think, why you are, concentrating your forces, and by so doing

you become more closely attached to the higher self, which never

distrusts.
