Eyes of Zeus is correct. Different strokes for different folks! Personally, my mind is like the Indy 500 track. I actually need a fixed visual aid to slow it down, coupled with incense and breathing techniques. I also have hypnotic triggers implanted, should all else fail. Self-hypnosis is not for the faint-hearted, so as Eyes mentioned, perhaps some guided meditation vids on Youtube may be for you.
Best of luck, may you only grow!
