The Art of Concentrating by Means of Practical Psychic Exercises (Part 4)

Exercise 6
Put the right hand on knee, both fingers and thumb closed, except

the first finger, which points out in front of you. Then move the

finger slowly from side to side, keeping the attention fixed upon

the end of the finger. You can make up a variety of exercises

like these. It is good training to plan out different ones. The

main point you should keep in mind is that the exercise should be

simple and that the attention should be firmly fixed upon the

moving part of the body. You will find your attention will not

want to be controlled and will try to drift to something more

interesting. This is just where these exercises are of value, and

you must control your attention and see it is held in the right

place and does not wander away.

You may think these exercises very simple and of no value, but I

promise you in a short time you will notice that you have a much

better control over your muscular movements, carriage and

demeanor, and you will find that you have greatly improved your

power of attention, and can center your thoughts on what you do,

which of course will be very valuable.

No matter what you may be doing, imagine that it is your chief

object in life. Imagine you are not interested in anything else

in the world but what you are doing. Do not let your attention

get away from the work you are at. Your attention will no doubt

be rebellious, but control it and do not let it control you. When

once you conquer the rebellious attention you have achieved a

greater victory than you can realize at the time. Many times

afterwards you will be thankful you have learned to concentrate

your closest attention upon the object at hand.

Let no day go by without practicing concentrating on some

familiar object that is uninteresting. Never choose an

interesting object, as it requires less attention. The less

interesting it is the better exercise will it be. After a little

practice you will find you can center your attention on

uninteresting subjects at will.

The person that can concentrate can gain full control over his

body and mind and be the master of his inclinations; not their

slave. When you can control yourself you can control others. You

can develop a Will that will make you a giant compared with the

man that lacks Will Power. Try out your Will Power in different

ways until you have it under such control that just as soon as

you decide to do a thing you go ahead and do it. Never be

satisfied with the “I did fairly well” spirit, but put forward

your best efforts. Be satisfied with nothing else. When you have

gained this you are the man you were intended to be.

Exercise 7

Psychic – Concentration Increases the Sense of Smell. When you take a walk,

or drive in the country, or pass a flower garden, concentrate on

the odor of flowers and plants. See how many different kinds you

can detect. Then choose one particular kind and try to sense only

this. You will find that this strongly intensifies the sense of

smell. This differentiation requires, however, a peculiarly

attentive attitude. When sense of smell is being developed, you

should not only shut out from the mind every thought but that of

odor, but you should also shut out cognizance of every odor save

that upon which your mind, for the time, is concentrated.

You call find plenty of opportunity for exercises for developing

the sense of smell. When you are out in the air, be on the alert

for the different odors. You will find the air laden with all

kinds, but let your Psychic – Concentration upon the one selected be such

that a scent of its fragrance in after years will vividly recall

the circumstances of this exercise.

The object of these exercises is to develop concentrated

attention, and you will find that you can, through their

practice, control your mind and direct your thoughts just the

same as you can your arm.

Exercise 8

Psychic – Concentration on the Within. Lie down and thoroughly relax your

muscles. Concentrate on the beating of your heart. Do not pay any

attention to anything else. Think how this great organ is pumping

the blood to every part of the body; try to actually picture the

blood leaving the great reservoir and going in one stream right

down to the toes. Picture another going down the arms to the tips

of the fingers. After a little practice you can actually feel the

blood passing through your system.

If, at any time, you feel weak in any part of the body, will that

an extra supply of blood shall go there. For instance, if your

eyes feel tired, picture the blood coming from the heart, passing

up through the head and out to the eyes. You can wonderfully

increase your strength by this exercise. Men have been able to

gain such control over the heart that they have actually stopped

it from beating for five minutes. This, however, is not without

danger, and is not to be practiced by the novice.

I have found the following a very helpful exercise to take just

before going to bed and on rising in the morning: Say to

yourself, “Every cell in my body thrills with life; every part of

my body is strong and healthy.” I have known a number of people

to greatly improve their health in this way. You become what you

picture yourself to be. If your mind thinks of sickness in

connection with self you will be sick. If you imagine yourself in

strong, vigorous health, the image will be realized. You will be


Exercise 9

Concentrating on Sleep. What is known as the water method is,

although very simple, very effective in inducing sleep.

Put a full glass of clear water on a table in your sleeping room.

Sit in a chair beside the table and gaze into the glass of water

and think how calm it is. Then picture yourself , getting into

just as calm a state. In a short time you will find the nerves

becoming quiet and you will be able to go to sleep. Sometimes it

is good to picture yourself becoming drowsy to induce sleep, and,

again, the most persistent insomnia has been overcome by one

thinking of himself as some inanimate object–for instance, a

hollow log in the depths of the cool, quiet forest.

Those who are troubled with insomnia will find these sleep

exercises that quiet the nerves very effective. Just keep the

idea in your mind that there is no difficulty in going to sleep;

banish all fear of insomnia. Practice these exercises and you

will sleep.

By this time you should have awakened to the possibilities of

Psychic – Concentration and have become aware of the important part it

plays in your life.

Exercise 10

Psychic – Concentration Will Save Energy and Appearance. Watch yourself and

see if you are not in the habit of moving your hands, thumping

something with your fingers or twirling your mustache. Some have

the habit of keeping their feet going, as, for instance, tapping

them on the floor. Practice standing before a mirror and see if

you are in the habit of frowning or causing wrinkles to appear in

the forehead. Watch others and see how they needlessly twist

their faces in talking. Any movement of the face that causes the

skin to wrinkle will eventually cause a permanent wrinkle. As the

face is like a piece of silk, you can make a fold in it a number

of times and it will straighten out of itself, but, if you

continue to make a fold in it, it will in time be impossible to

remove it.

By Psychic – Concentration You Can Stop the Worry Habit. If you are in the

habit of worrying over the merest trifles, just concentrate on

this a few minutes and see bow needless it is; if you are also in

the habit of becoming irritable or nervous at the least little

thing, check yourself instantly when you feel yourself becoming

so; start to breathe deeply; say, “I will not be so weak; I am

master of myself,” and you will quickly overcome your condition. Brings You Psychic Training for Real People.
