    Hi everyone, there are many questions that commonly arise when we discuss mind power, having influence and possibly control over things amd the ability to simply “make things happen”. Maybe these are all conceptual thoughts, and may be not. I do think about these things and it still puzzles me. What are your opinions on this and how do you perceive the power of mind???

    We can see what happens regarding "mind power" when there is a lack of it.

    Eg not paying attention to things causing accidents
    depression causing self neglect and suicide.
    anxiety causing people to avoid things that would benefit them


    The idea of mind power I think is to use what you have to it's best effect to help you and others.

    I know that i am in pain and i ignore it it eventually goes away. Just ignoring it i find works really well.
    My grandfather had both his legs off in the war and he used to get pains in his legs (even though they weren't there) and i remember mum telling me he used to sit there and tell it to stop and that he was ignoring it and it would go.
    That's where i got it from. Its like if you get an itch. i find if you imagine scratching it it works.
    maybe i'm just a odd one! but call me a looney but it works for me!!! :p
