Keep your eyes closed. By controlling your thinking, you can make time seem to slow down. (The following is read progressively more and more slowly, with each word drawn out and with long pauses, i.e. of two to six seconds between the statements.) Tell yourself that there’s lots of time. There’s lots of time between each second. Time is stretching out and there’s lots of time. There’s more and more time between each second. Every second is stretching far, far out. Stretching out more and more. Lots and lots of time. There’s so much time, lots of time. Tell yourself that every second is stretching out. There’s a lot of time between each second. Lots of time. You do it yourself. You slow time down. Now bring time back to normal but keep your eyes closed.
