There are innumerable Mind Exercises around the world, and they all help in one way or another to make our lives better and better each day. Regular and consistent practice of these exercises has been making lives more and more beautiful.

→ to consciously choose thoughts and feelings, and create the life one desires

→ to correct beliefs, whichever necessary
