If you’re like me, you’re always working on your game – your swing, pitching, chipping, putting, different kinds of lies, getting out of bunkers and getting out of trouble. But once you’re playing, leave mechanics at the practice facility. You must or you’ll never experience the marvels of your Subconscious Mind working in sync with your body.
Your Subconscious Mind is waiting for you to trust in it. How do you do this?
Always remember to breathe deeply – a couple of times - as you focus on your target (This will be Level B for those of you who listen to my CD, “Own The Zone.”) Taking a deep breath as you focus on your target distracts your attention away from your swing as well as your mental chatter. Deep breathing also will relax your body so your swing will be natural and fluid.
Deep breathing as you focus on your target triggers a deeper state of consciousness. Once you’re in this state, that great golfer in you can surface. You’ll be able to get in the zone and stay in the zone for longer and longer periods of time.
The zone is actually an altered state of consciousness. And when you’re in it, you’ll feel very comfortable with each club in your hands. Your swing will be effortless and the results will be surprisingly good without conscious awareness.
So keep practicing – with conscious awareness – when that’s what you’re intending to do –practice! But once you’re out on the course, leave all that “thinking” behind.
Trust in your Subconscious Mind. It knows how to get the results you want. Effortlessly.
