Time is Relative
Although time moves slowly, when you’re in flow it moves fast at the same time. So time is relative. Bored and slow involved, and it’s over almost just after it began.
When you are in flow, however, everything seems slow from the perspective of having plenty of time to get things done. Decisions seem more obvious. There is a feeling of peace within yourself and you have this gift of an ability to plan and execute and incredible acceptance of results, regardless of how others perceive it.
When you’re within yourself, you’re in the present. Both your physiology and thought process are synced up. Knowing this allows you to perceive what being in the present is, and will eventually allow you to keep it there when you feel it slipping away.
When you fire the circuit in the conscious mind, you are not helping yourself find flow.
The result doesn’t matter. What matters is how much conscious control you place on the action. With a conscious plan and subconscious action, the correct sides of the brain get to exercise their separate responsibilities. Without this distinction between the two entities and their perspective jobs, practice is worthless.
You’re looking to control your flow and be able to get into the state whenever and wherever you need to be. The more you are keeping your two processes in sync, and they try to go fast and you slow them down, the better you will get at flow on command and flow in other areas of your life.
So, time is really relative to how we experience it. The transformation of time is a result of being in flow. Being in flow transforms how we experience or perceive time. How we experience time when in flow allows for us to get into the state more often and more easily.
The learning process is impeded by conscious instructions. This is what happened in the pigeon field. More misses, more conscious correction… and worse results. The less conscious instructions after a miss, the better the next shot will be if you can just let it go. It’s the difference in what is possible. And what you are afraid of? Missing again?
Self-talk is always solution-oriented and uses the fewest number of words possible. Can the correction come from the unconscious brain? Only if the conscious brain doesn’t get involved. Our job is to be your unconscious brain when we are teaching you. The tendency is to overthink and over-verbalize the problem from “this is what I did to screw it up” first and then voluminous words about what you need to do to fix it. And it is always wrong.
What a discovery. The correction must be visual and just appear – or at least reason through the problem and then visualize the correction.
