This is usually the person who makes the decisions in the group and who usually look forward to their older brother being the leader and will be followers. Ask them to associate the leader as the soul and that his followers are the mind. Then follow the steps below.

1. Sit and close your eyes. Make sure you're comfortable.

2. Take inhale and exhale deep. Just pay attention to your breathing.

3.Picture yourself after your brother, your breath. Have the mind focus only on breathing and follow the breath.

4. Count your breath in every exhale. do not hurry. The mind will want to rush and count before exhaling, but be sure not to skip ahead.

5. Slowly, count to ten at the end of each exhalation and continue to follow the breath.

These techniques can be used to relax the brain and are used to achieve the goals of working with the subconscious to become more successful. Use a soothing sound during meditation to drive pictures and relax with your child. Enjoy!
