Trusting the subconscious mind to swing the golf club has evolved an inspiration to be more positive; and guess what! The game is the “funest” and “bestest” ever!! Placing rampant swing thoughts on a bus to South America, providing clear “desired results” to the subconscious and passionately connecting the conscious mind with the subconscious mind—mind”full”ness—is a new, exciting experience.
Christian D. Larson offers,
 The subconscious not only reproduces exactly what has been recorded, but will also form, create, develop and express what mind may desire when the impression is being made; that is, the subconscious not only produces the seed itself, but as many more seeds as the original seed desired to reproduce, and also the exact degree of improvement in quality that was latent in the desire of the original seed or impression.
Essential transitions associated with Coronavirus have triggered inspiring experiences about remaining “golf ready” at home: Momentus Swing Trainer, a stationary bike, Yoga for Golfers (Katherine Roberts, 2004, McGraw-Hill), push-ups, sit-ups, lunges and squats. Last week, while lunging past the living room bookshelves, Cindy Reid’s book, Get Yourself in Golf Shape: Year-Round Drills to Build a Strong Flexible Swing (2005, Rodale), hooked the attention. Her book offers that there are seven positions of the golf swing: set-up, take-away, top of the back swing, initial forward swing, impact, extension and finish; and she offers exercises to train the muscles associated with each position. Could her position exercises be used to link the conscious mind with the subconscious mind?
Working with the subconscious mind is a new experience for this golfer; and I make absolutely no claim to be a subconscious mind expert. A commitment is to keep you informed about progress experiences. As a point of departure, have added Reid’s “impact position” exercises to the home workout routine:

  • Wrist club lift
  • Wrist roll
  • Wrist curl
  • Wrist rotation
  • Sit-ups and crunches
  • Weighted driver
  • Cable pull
  • Leg curl

Simply trust the programmed subconscious to perform: with passion burning, the captain of the ship squeezes the auto-pilot button and trusts the carefully programmed subconscious to creatively deliver a ball to an intended target. Tiger Woods commented, “I have learned to trust the subconscious, and my instincts have never lied to me.” Joan King offers, “When you are playing at your peak levels, you are trusting your game to your subconscious mind and allowing your swing to happen automatically.” Just train it and let it do its thing!
