Practice. The more you do it, the easier it is to control. I usually
describe it as being similar to muscle control. You don't so much think
about it as you simply do it. The brain knows how to get from point A to
point B once you generate the intent. If you want the frequency to
decrease, generate mental intent to decrease the frequency.
