I remember when I first started playing with PR I use to get so hung up on the mechanics of PR'ing.
Am I relaxed enough, am I flipping the pages, did I just loose state, is this working, ah dang ... just flipped serveral pages, hey, I just lost the blip ... oh dang!
Then it eventually dawned on me to just relax and go with the flow. You're equipped with a brain that can sense when the body/mind is in sync. You hear it from teachers all the time ... PAY ATTENTION.
Just a few things to remember ... when you tilt your head, gently smile, breath and chant the Relax, Relax, 4 3 2 1, ... the mind/body know what to do!
