    I am so glad I ran across this article. Lately negative thoughts seem to be the habit of mine. Your Mind Twist techniques are something I know to be true. I guess I just slipped back. I will be using these starting today, to get back to my positive self.
    thanks so much.

    • You are very much welcome Mark. 🙂

      The slipping back is human nature. We all fall into the habit of forgetting stuff, even things that are most important in our lives. But with a little bit of self discipline we can get rid of forgetfulness and laziness.

      You can try writing down your day’s schedule the day before, in the evening, and make a habit of including the technique in the plan. Be sure to remind yourself about it as well as its benfits, from time to time through the day.

      This worked for me. I have never slipped back since.

    Great Info! I actually don’t have a negative personality at all but I get those sad thoughts and I am always looking for ways to push them out.

    What you describe seems to be some form of meditation. I have tried this but it hasn’t really worked. What I have found to work is going into a room privately to myself and think of worse situations I could be in and somehow those thoughts push right out eventually after 15 to 20 minutes.

    We all deal with this differently and just thought I would share with you that your article describes what I already do which feels great!

      Hallo there Traci, 

      Nice approach! I agree with you, people have different approaches to everything. And if thinking about worse situations works for you, I am happy.

      And I also recommend folks who find your approach fit for them to use it as well.

      Comparing it to the mind twist, I would say you have used a small aspect of it since you normally get your thoughts to completely understand those worse situations which helps you chase away the attitude and fear that you may have towards them.

      This is the 3rd and 4th step in the mind twist technique.

      I have to say that I find your approach very creative, hats off to you. 🙂

      I think at the end of the day, it is as you say it.

      It is all about what is working for you.

    First I want to say how informative your post was, easy to read. Is this something that you have practices for a while and are there times when you feel you need to go back to it later in life?
    Just a word of advice might want to double check spelling, saw an error.
    Plan on watching for more post in the future, well done!

      Thanks ShaniDee, 

      I am happy you loved the post. 🙂

      I would say that this technique has become a lifestyle for me and I have seen it change my life in a huge way because it helps you keep in constant touch with reality and walk in the right path in this world that is full of illusions.

      I strongly encourage you to try it out and see what I am saying.

      I will also be sure to correct the errors which I am also grateful for pointing them out.

      Have a lovely day.

    I have always had trouble meditating because I don’t have good concentration habits. So, I found this article very helpful–thank you!
    Question–does music really help? You recommend the two brain-training products which say they have music. When I have tried to meditate while playing music, I either get distracted by it or I fall asleep. Obviously I need more practice.

      Hallo there Kathleen, 

      Music does help, in a huge way. 

      The question is, which kind of music do you listen to while meditating and if it is the most suitable for you.

      The two brain training systems that I have recommended you use have brainwave entrainment which increases the benefits you get from meditation. 

      Zen 12 will help take you into deep meditative states which will have you remain alert yet relaxed which is really essential for meditators, while brainev will be training you to increase your natural concentration.

      They are not regular music, they are brain based music which greatly benefit the brain.

      I hope I have answered your question well enough.

      If you have more questions, please keep the conversation going.

      Have a good day.
