Three separate and freestanding golf hypnosis recordings, to use as often as you like, to help you address three main issues many golfers struggle with in playing winning golf.
The first track focuses on helping you unconsciously discover the changes in your mental approach that are required to find yourself playing winning golf at some future event. Your unconscious mind already has all the resources and knowledge it needs to accomplish this. It just needs some help to piece it all together. With “Playing to Win” you will unlock those changes to start you on the path to winning!
Many golfers have psychological barriers that get in the way of playing their best game. Everyone has their own barriers, a specific hole or course that you just don’t play well, difficulties playing over water, or hitting a particular club. The list of barriers is endless. “Overcoming Barrier to Winning” begins the process of eliminating the barriers that hurt your scoring and transforms your thinking for positive results.
If you think you have more than one barrier to success, run through this track over and over to gradually eliminate everything that gets in your way and prevents you from playing to the best of your abilities.
Golf is often called a “game of if.” How often do you hear golfers saying things like: if only I hadn’t missed the green at the 14th. If only I hadn’t had that bad lie on the 10th. Maybe it was a bad bounce, or my personal favorite: if only I could play on the course like I do when I’m warming up on the practice tee. Often these are people who hit every shot on the practice tee with a fade and then try in vain to draw their first approach shot on the course. They probably try again on the next hole as well and when that still doesn’t work they start making changes to their swing – out there on the course!
How many of these golfing ifs are simply reasons, excuses and rationalizations for our bad decisions and our reluctance to accept that, as Bob Rotella says, “Golf is not a game of perfect. Winning golfers accept what happens to them during a round and make the most of the game they brought with them today.”
“Making The Most of Your Game” helps you reach that level of acceptance so you can shoot your best score today!
Research suggests that at least 40 percent of the population are not consciously aware of the pictures they make in their minds. If you are one of this 40 percent, then if I was to ask you questions about the color, style and handle of your front door, you may not see a clear picture of your front door. However, I’m sure that you do somehow know the answers to those questions. Maybe the answers come to you in words or in terms of feelings.
There’s no doubt about the power of visualization in golf, especially when you read about the way Jack Nicklaus, one of the best mind game players golf has ever ‘seen’, uses visualization so well and made it clear in this famous quotation:
“I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. First I see the ball where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting up high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes and I see the ball going there – its path, trajectory and shape, even its behaviour on landing. Then there is a sort of fade-out and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the previous images into reality.”
The good news is that we all have the mental ability to visualize golf in the same, or possibly an even better way, than Jack and that’s what this program is all about.
So what’s in “Visualization Skills for Golf” to help us visualize like Jack Nicklaus? Three powerful golf hypnosis sessions for you to use, in sequence, to develop your visualization skills by helping you to:
As with many aspects of life, practice makes perfect; the more you describe things visually to other people, and yourself, the better you see the picture in your mind’s eye. In this first hypnosis session, you’ll practice, in hypnosis, describing your better shots from successful past rounds in ways that allow you to unconsciously reveal your unconscious imagery to your conscious awareness.
If I were to ask you to describe a great hole you played recently, you might not be able to recall the details well enough to describe it. But if, as you were talking generally about the hole, I asked about any mid-range pitch shots, you might then recall what you had forgotten. The more I gently probe, the more you are likely to remember. That memory will come in the form of you visualizing what you had done and describing what you see in that visualization.
After a time you will recall all the details about the hole, in visual terms. That’s what this track is all about.
This second hypnosis session is a bit weird, but very effective. In this session you’re going to be my caddy as I play one of your favorite courses. What makes it an interesting learning experience is that you will be caddying blindfold for me and you’ll have to picture and visually describe the shots I have to play.
You obviously know the course, but by helping someone play the course, hole by hole, you will have to picture and visually describe each shot before it is played. You will find this quite revealing.
The power of the unconscious mind is truly phenomenal, especially when it comes to synthesising new ways of working from our lifetime of experiences and resources. This third session builds on your successful work with the first two sessions to help you build a vivid imaginary future experience of playing great golf using all your newly rediscovered visualization skills. I then ask your unconscious mind to work out how that could have happened. After all, if your unconscious mind can create that vivid imaginary future, then it can also work out a plan to get you there without interference from your conscious analytical mind.
The power of the imagination and the ability to see things in the “mind’s eye” is often very obvious to us as spectators when we see golfers thinking out their most difficult shots. You only have to think of some of those amazing chip shots Sergio Garcia and Jose Maria Olazabal play, the pitch shots of Padraig Harrington and those unbelievable shots that Phil Mickelson pulls off, to name but a few.
Visualization is also a key part of the pre-shot routines of these top players and I suspect that most of them consciously or unconsciously think about it in a similar way to Jack Nicklaus.
Good golf is primarily the result of using both the analytical/conscious and instinctive/unconscious parts of our mind. This is most important when you arrive at your ball to begin your pre-shot routine and continues until you have finished the shot, learned from it and released it to the past. All winning Pros talk about being in a state of total concentration, oblivious to distractions around them, being able to focus totally on the shot at hand. Without any tension in their bodies and a smoothness of motion.
Now you can understand why we advocate the idea that the time you spend In The Zone, starts when you’re ready to begin your pre-shot routine and ends after you’ve hit the shot, learned from it and released it to the past. To be more specific, I’m talking here about four specific steps of Golf in the Playing Zone. They are your:
Three powerful, freestanding golf hypnosis sessions each designed to create your playing zone:
The first hypnosis session is simply called “The Playing Zone” and helps you build a series of unconscious triggers to take you automatically into the Playing Zone and step you systematically and unconsciously through your pre-shot routine, rehearsal swings, shot routine and your post-shot routine. This doesn’t specify the contents of those routines. We want to achieve a set of cascading triggers that take you automatically through from the moment you arrive at the ball to the time you release the results of the shot and walk on to the next one. For me, that’s the Playing Zone, the time for concentration. The rest of the time you’re on the golf course, you should be relaxed and unfocussed as you’re walking, talking and enjoying what’s going on around you.
Do you talk to yourself when you’re playing golf? Many golfers regularly talk to themselves in a negative or even abusive manner on the golf course. It’s almost certainly spoiling both your enjoyment of the game and your score. A good example is when you’re starting your pre-shot routine and deciding on the type of shot you’re going to play. Have you ever had one voice in your head proposing an ambitious shot with a driver and another one encouraging you to make a more conservative shot with an iron? Don’t worry about it. It’s perfectly normal. This second hypnosis track starts by building a powerful, calm, relaxed and resourceful set of feelings. This prepares you to learn more about your inner critic and the hidden meaning behind its negativity. The session also helps you unconsciously learn more about and strengthen the powers of your much more positive and resourceful inner guardian or champion. Finally the session uses the NLP “visual squash” technique to help your inner guardian overwhelm the inner critic while capturing any positive intention from all your old negativity. OK, that sounds odd, but it’s a very effective and rewarding process.
Some years ago we heard about a fairly obscure European Tour player by the name of Philip Archer. He had a reputation for winning the Pro-Am events on the Wednesday before the main tournament; often with a course record. This contrasted with him scoring badly on Thursday and Friday and missing the cut. His problem was finally diagnosed as over-concentration. “Concentration on the Zone,” is designed to help you isolate and set aside the thoughts and distractions that interfere with your concentration and enjoyment on the golf course. Some of these will be the usual golf related things like thinking about your score, your swing, course conditions – the list is endless. There are also the thoughts you bring to the course that have nothing to do with golf apart from getting in the way of Golf in the Playing Zone. Let’s end those thoughts now for better concentration and scores!
Have you noticed how certain players seem to do well on particular courses? How many of the top professionals on the PGA Tour seem to come in the top 10, year after year in the same event? They perform well when they have ”no fear”!
Fear on the golf course can come in many shapes and sizes and it can result in a multitude of problems. People often experience fear, anxiety and nervousness over things that may embarrass them, upset them or distract them. A player who’s afraid of getting a bad bounce, miss-hitting a shot he’s about to make, shanking, yipping or hitting some other disastrous shot, is probably thinking about a similar shot he’s miss-hit in the past. People can also be afraid of being watched by other players or spectators. The list of possible fears on the golf course is only limited by people’s seemingly limitless imagination. Any fear will destroy your performance!
Free From Fear includes three sessions:
Given the title, you won’t be surprised that this track is designed to build a powerful resource of calm, quiet confidence to help you turn any fear, anxiety or nervousness into confidence on the golf course. Jack Nicklaus talked about his win at the 1967 US Open at Baltusrol and described how he was almost overcome by nerves after bogeying the tenth hole in the final round. He calmed himself down and went on to win with a record score by telling himself, “Here you are, starting to get afraid of winning the Open. You’re leading by 3 strokes with 8 holes to go. You’ve obviously played well or you wouldn’t be in this position. You’re still playing well. You’re doing something you enjoy, so enjoy it.”
The second track uses the power of your imagination to build an automatic, systematic and unconscious process to eliminate all those old fears, nervousness and anxieties you’ve experienced or imagined in your golfing past. Let’s erase those old fears!
The final track helps you to progressively build a library of powerful resources and experiences. Your unconscious mind then automatically calls on these resources whenever you are under pressure or experiencing one of your old fears. As a result you unconsciously turn your old fears into Motivation to Confident golf.
Ask yourself how many shots you would have saved if you never lost your temper, never gave yourself a hard time, always developed a strategy before you hit the ball, and always played within your own capabilities.
Anger management is often the initial reason for people seeking help with golf hypnosis. It’s acceptable to be annoyed and frustrated when you hit a bad shot, but it’s disastrous if you’re still annoyed, frustrated or worse when you hit your next shot. The main causes of anger in golf come from a players’ reaction to a poor shot, a bad bounce an opponents actions or comments, the course conditions and other outside distractions. The list is endless I’m sure you can remember times when some of these thigns got you mad on the course.
Although these sources of anger are all different, they break down into 3 categories. The first two categories, course conditions and how your playing partners act, are beyond your control. But the final category is something you can control. Your expectations, desires, goals, past experiences and fears are all within your control. Can you rid yourself of these negative thoughts? Yes!What’s included in “Anger Management for Better Golf?” Three powerful freestanding golf hypnosis sessions and an NLP session to help you:
Once you’re getting some positive results from “Release and Eliminate Anger”, it’s time to start using the second golf hypnosis session, “Control your Anger Habit” to upgrade your unconscious programming to change your old automatic reaction to all the things that used to make you angry. It’s ok to feel angry for a few moments after a bad shot, that’s natural, but it isn’t ok to carry it forward to the next shot.
I have to say that I don’t like seeing the anger that Tiger Woods so often seems to display on the golf course and I’m sure that it must make it very hard for his playing partners to ignore. However, it didn’t take me too long to realise that it doesn’t seem to have any long-term affect on him. Although he’s clearly using hypnosis while he’s hitting the ball, he appears to come out the moment he completes the swing. He’s certainly calmed down before he hypnotically plays his next shot, so his bad shot and his temper don’t have any lasting effect on him. You can learn this control and release!
You can use this third golf hypnosis track, “Enjoy Anger Free Golf” at any time throughout your use of this program as it’s all about choosing the right path away from anger and experience a more enjoyable and increasingly rewarding golfing future.
Do you enjoy your golf and do the people around you share your enjoyment for golf? So, do the professionals enjoy their golf? Well clearly some do and clearly some don’t. This track provides an avenue toward anger free enjoyment for your golf.
The three golf hypnosis tracks in this program combine a variety of powerful techniques to help you eliminate the effects of anger from your golfing experience. This final track, “Managing Anger on the Golf Course”, uses an equally powerful NLP technique for collapsing the old anchors that used to trigger your anger. It captures that trigger and automatically uses it to fire off good feelings of comfort and confidence that overwhelm and replace the old explosive feelings of anger.
Modern research shows that the act of “Imagining” yourself doing something fires up the identical parts of the brain that would be activated if you were actually doing it. So, if you’re imagining yourself playing golf, the neurons you’re using in your brain are the very same ones that you’re using when you’re physically playing the game. You really do “physically” practice your swing when you imagine hitting the ball and you have no reason to hit a bad shot when you’re practicing and playing in your imagination. It has been scientifically proven that the brain and nervous system do not fully know the difference between real events and vividly imagined ones! So you can practice perfect golf in your mind. According to studies at California State University – Northridge, mental rehearsal can be even better than physical practice, because it activates more abstract neural representations of physical skills. There’s even some research ongoing that’s finding proof that when you mentally rehearse a physical action, your unconscious mind sends out messages to build up the muscles needed to perform the action. Practicing and playing golf in your mind really does work and generates the appropriate muscle responses for whatever you’re vividly imagining.
What is included in “Better Golf with Less Practice?” Three sessions to:
The first hypnosis session, Play Golf in your Mind, helps you to visualise and experience playing any course you know, mentally playing every shot and every putt. You’ll be using all your existing pre-shot routines and developing your strategy for playing the course. With the power of your unconscious mind, you’ll see yourself hitting the good shots you are capable of as you build your confidence and expectation of hitting great shots. As an additional bonus, this hypnosis session uses the concept of Hypnotic Time to speed things up when you Play Golf in your Mind. That means that you can unconsciously play entire rounds of golf in your mind in just a few minutes.
You’ve probably been told for all your golfing life that the only way to better golf is practice, practice and more practice. With this second hypnosis session, Practice Golf in your Mind, you’ll mentally rehearse playing all those shots you want to learn or improve and hitting them right every time. This is also a great session for implementing the swing changes you’d like to make.
This hypnosis session also uses the concept of Hypnotic Time to speed things up when you Practice Golf in your Mind. So if you have a swing drill to work on, why not go through it physically then go into hypnosis and visualise doing 1,000 repetitions in your mind in 20 minutes? It doesn’t take that many sessions to achieve the 10,000 repetitions the experts tell us is needed to implement a swing change. In addition, every one of those repetitions will be perfect, just as you imagined them.
In this third hypnosis session, Play Golf in your Dreams, you’ll unconsciously learn how to use modern lucid dreaming techniques to control and shape your dreams to allow you to continue rehearsing successful golf in your mind as you sleep. Hypnosis works by communicating with your unconscious mind. And your dreams, the ones you have when you sleep or daydream, are also the work of your unconscious mind. We all spend a lot of our time sleeping, so why not use some of that time to practice and improve your golf with lucid dreams.
By observing other players, especially the leading professionals, you can learn from them to improve your own game. When you watch the top professionals on TV it’s easy to get absorbed in the way they swing, particularly if you have the volume turned down to protect you from the frequently negative comments and the ooh’s and ahs of the crowd. Notice how you can feel in your own muscles how the pro’s are swinging. Your muscles will make micro movements without you actually swinging. Research has shown that the brain and nervous system activates the same circuitry when making these micro muscle movements as actual movements. This process is part of the modeling experience that’s at the foundation of Neuro Linguistic Programming, the modeling process we’ll be using in this program. Mirror neurons start working when a person is sensing a physical aspect of another person’s behavior. This modeling of the physical swing process is also excellent for your golf practice. So why not imagine how your role model thinks, plans and executes each shot.
What’s included in Learn from your Golfing Heroes? Three sessions to help:
In this session you’ll have the opportunity to observe and then step into the shoes of your golfing heroes and experience what it’s like to think, play and act as they do. You’ll then have the opportunity to integrate the parts you want to incorporate into your own game and thinking on the golf course.
One of the wonderful things about the game of golf is that, whatever our level of ability, we can and often do hit really good shots and putts. Just think about the lowest score you’ve ever had on each hole on your regular course. If you add all those together you’ll get your eclectic score, an indicator of how good your best shots and holes are. I’ll bet your eclectic score is something of an eye opener. That should tell you that you have a lot of good shots within your capability and that you can learn from your own golf. In this session, you’ll explore and learn from all those great shots you can and do play and all the positive ways you can and do think on the golf course.
What would it be like to sit down four or five of your all time golfing heroes? Imagine what it would be like to ask them for their knowledgeable and honest advice to help you play better golf. Why not take it a step further and imagine that, even though you may never have met them, they somehow seem to know all about you and your golf.
Now that’s what this third hypnosis session, “Your Personal Golf Hall of Fame” is all about. In this session, you’ll choose one or more members of your personal Golf Hall of Fame to mentor you, advise you and generally help you to improve your golf.
Despite all the complexity in equipment and technique, putting is the great equalizer in golf. We all have the opportunity to be great putters, regardless of age, sex, build, health and level of fitness. The older we get, the more golfers tend to forget how easy putting really is. We also forget how well we used to putt when we were younger and more carefree. You often hear the golf commentators talk about how some up and coming young professional hasn’t yet “learned” how difficult putting really is. They sometimes talk about how the accumulation of years of missed putts slowly frazzles the nerves and undermines the confidence of the older and more experienced golfers. So is there any truth in this? Well yes there is and the good news is that for most golfers it’s all in the mind and that’s where golf hypnosis can really help.
Included are three sessions that address putting confidence, your belief in your putting and your trust in your instinctive green reading abilities. Also included is a very effective and imaginative technique that you will learn and take out to the greens to help you make the most of your unconscious putting abilities.
Jack Nicklaus is arguably the greatest living golfer and a good putter. However in his mind, he remembers that he is an even greater putter. I’m sure that you’ve heard the story of him telling an audience that he has never three putted the last hole of a tournament or missed from inside of three feet. As Jack opens the floor to take questions, a man puts up his hand and says to Nicklaus.
“Jack you say you have never missed from inside of three feet on the last hole of a tournament, but I was watching you last month in a major tournament and that’s exactly what you did.” Jack looked at the man with those piercing blue eyes and repeated that he had never missed from inside of three feet on the last hole of a tournament. “But Mr. Nicklaus”, the man insisted, “I saw it, I have it on film, I can send it to you if you like”. “No need”, Jack replied, “I have never missed from inside of three feet on the last hole of a tournament. Are there any more questions?”
Now, has Jack Nicklaus ever missed from inside of three feet on the last hole of a tournament? Of course he has! Does he remember it? Not a chance. And do you think he cares that he can’t remember? Well, yes he does care passionately about the benefit of not remembering his bad shots. That may sound delusional, but wouldn’t you love to putt as well as Jack?
This first session, “Remember you’re a Great Putter”, helps you to do just that. It allows you to remember and imagine all your great putts, while forgetting about all those other putts you’d prefer not to remember. A great confidence builder!
Just as Jack Nicklaus conveniently forgets his missed putts, it’s important that you believe in your putting stroke. Billy Mayfair has a fairly eccentric and very effective putting stroke. The only problem Billy’s ever had with his putting was when he started listening to the so-called experts who told him his putting stroke wasn’t good enough to compete. Now I don’t know how technically correct your putting stroke is, but I’d bet that you’ve holed a few putts in your time. When you believe in it, as Billy believes in his, you can putt that well all of the time as you “Believe in Your Putting Stroke.” This second session reinforces your belief in your stroke.
Have you noticed how some people can just walk onto a green, take a cursory glance around and then hole a simply unbelievable breaking putt? It happens with other shots as well. Think about that amazing horseshoe chip that Tiger Woods holed on the 16th at the Masters a few years ago. Even with all his talent, I’m sure he didn’t honestly expect to hole it, but I suspect that he did intend to. That’s more than enough direction for the unconscious instinctive mind to work on, unhindered by doubt.
This third golf hypnosis session, “Reading your Putts Instinctively” starts out by helping you to expand and develop your peripheral sensory awareness through your eyes, feelings of touch, balance and even your hearing. This allows you to unconsciously take in more of the information that’s available to you, as you approach and stand on the putting green. The second part of the session reinforces your trust in this unconscious awareness, allowing you to read the green instinctively and quickly, using your powerful unconscious resources.
The three golf hypnosis sessions in “Own the Putting Green” work primarily with your unconscious mind, building your putting confidence, your belief in your stroke and your trust in your green reading. And through the use of hypnosis, they do all this without you needing to consciously remember doing anything different out on the golf course. Over time, the new habits and beliefs just start to happen without you being aware of anything, apart from the improvements in your putting.
Sometimes, especially in the early days of using this program you may need a bit of conscious help out on the golf course and that’s why “Better Putting in your Unconscious mind” is included. Applying this technique consciously and conscientiously on the greens will give your unconscious mind the opportunity to participate more in your putting and reinforce the work of the hypnosis sessions.
So what are the Yips and is it physical, neurological or in the mind? I haven’t worked with anyone who has a physical or neurological impediment that directly caused their Yips. So it’s most likely to be in the mind and something you can change with the help of techniques like hypnosis and NLP.
What do we know about the yips and where does it come from? For most people it just seems to creep up on them. Often it happens the first time, just when it really matters, when they’re feeling a high level of emotion and stress, maybe a putt to win a competition, maybe with a few more people than usual watching them. And they miss a shot. They suddenly feel angry, embarrassed or maybe just downright stupid. Whatever it is, the combination of feelings locks the memory of that shot to those feelings and the seed of the Yips is sown. They have one bad experience at a critical time and they start worrying about playing that shot again. That makes them feel worse, so they fear the next shot even more. You can see the same thing happening with people who struggle to hit shots over water, or have a hole or course they “just can’t play”.
So what’s in this program to help me Overcome the Yips? Three freestanding golf hypnosis sessions that each approach your problem from a different angle to help you to overcome your fears, anxiety and embarrassment of the Yips. Also included is a very effective technique from the world of NLP for you to learn and take out on the course to help you relax in the situations where you used to panic.
The first session is entitled “Coping with the Yips” and it treats your “fear” of the Yips as if it had been a full blown phobia, such as a fear of flying or public speaking. Treating it in that way allows you to rapidly learn to get over it and see your old yip problem as something that used to happen to someone else; someone from your past. There’s a fun element too with you taking your seat in your own private grandstand on a wonderful golf course somewhere in your imagination. Yes, I know that sounds a bit odd, but your imagination knows no bounds.
If you kept doing something silly and annoying, over and over, week in and week out, in other areas of your life, then pretty soon you’d lose your temper with yourself and you’d probably say something like “Enough is Enough!”
This session will access a number of embarrassing and ridiculous experiences of your fear of the yips and play them back in your mind over and over until you say “Enough is Enough” to yourself.
I know this may seem odd, but the biggest problem with the yips is not the fact that you can Yip a shot, chip or putt. What is so disturbing is the anticipation, fear and anxiety that you might yip the shot. Those negative emotions increase the likelihood of the thing you fear most.
This third hypnosis session helps you unconsciously associate feelings of confidence and relaxation to every memory you ever had of your old Yips problem. As a result, you’ll remember that you used to have the yips, but without the damaging negative emotions.
One of the great things about the three hypnosis sessions in this program is that they work primarily with your unconscious mind. That means that while they are doing their work and starting to deliver the results you are looking for, you are not consciously aware of actually doing anything different.
This NLP technique is a great supplement and something you can consciously do on the golf course to help you Overcome the Yips. Once you’ve built up a strong series of positive memories and resources into your imaginary Circle of Excellence, you’ll be consciously in control of using them to replace the negative emotions of fear and anxiety with positive and resourceful ones. And you can use this wherever and whenever you need to.
More people complain of the yips than almost every other golfing affliction I can think of. But I’ve seen and spoken to far more shankers than I have yippers. There are two possibilities for this. The first is that people are more prepared to accept that their yips might be a problem in their mind. While many golfers can and occasionally do shank a whole series of shots on the range. What’s odd is that they often talk about the inconsistency with their swings as the reason for their shanking, but you have to be very consistent to hit the hosel ten times or more in a row. It’s a fearful problem that’s in the back of the mind of an awful lot of golfers, and many don’t even want to hear the word shank! I love the description by CBS commentator Gary McCord when talking about shanking, “it’s an airborne virus” and “If you say it, you might catch it”. “Once you’ve done it, the next shot is always really interesting”. There’s no psychological element in that reaction, now is there. For many of us, there’s a real chance that just one shank is all it takes to start an irrational fear that we can’t explain. It’s a bit like the way a phobia starts out. You have one bad experience at a critical time and you start worrying about playing that shot again. You can see the same thing happening with people who struggle to hit shots over water, or have a hole or course they “just can’t play”. If you need any more proof, think about someone you know who shanks his shots from time to time. You’d think it was a life and death experience! Overcome the Shanks golf hypnosis program is the ideal solution for anyone who’s suffering from shanking!
Included in “Overcome the Shanks” are three golf hypnosis sessions that approach your problem from different angles to help:
Also included is an excellent NLP anchoring technique, the “Circle of Excellence” to give you something you can consciously do, out on the golf course, to help you Overcome the Shanks.
The first hypnosis session is entitled “Coping with your Shanking Habit” and it treats your “fear” of shanking as if it had been a full blown phobia. Treating it in that way allows you to rapidly learn to see your old shanking problem as something that used to happen to someone else – someone from your past. There’s a fun element too; you will take your seat in your own private grandstand on a wonderful golf course somewhere in your imagination. Yes, I know that sounds a bit odd, but your imagination knows no bounds. This is very powerful stuff.
To have a profound fear of something that’s not life threatening is unreasonable. If you kept doing something that is silly and annoying, over and over, week in and week out, in other areas of your life, pretty soon you’d lose your temper with yourself.
This session helps you do that with your old shanking problem. You’ll access a number of embarrassing and ridiculous experiences of your fear of shanking and play them back in your mind over and over until you say words to yourself like; “That’s the Last Straw” and break the cycle.
I know this may seem odd, but the biggest problem with shanking is not the fact that you can shank a shot. What is so distrubing is the anticipation, fear and anxiety that you might shank the shot you are about to make. I think you’ll agree that those negative emotions increase the likelihood of the thing you fear most.
This third golf hypnosis session helps you unconsciously associate feelings of confidence and relaxation to every memory you ever had of your old shanking problem. As a result, you’ll remember that you used to shank some shots, but without the damaging negative emotions.
One of the great things about the three golf hypnosis sessions in this program is that they work primarily with your unconscious mind. That means that while they are doing their work and starting to deliver the results you are looking for, you are not consciously aware of doing anything different.
This “Circle of Excellence” NLP technique will give you something you can consciously do, out on the golf course, to help eliminate your old shanking habit. Once you’ve built up a strong series of positive memories and resources into your imaginary “Circle of Excellence”, you’ll be consciously in control of using them to replace the negative emotions of fear and anxiety with positive and resourceful ones. And you can use this wherever and whenever you need to, out on the course.
