A powerful application of the state of Focused Passion is mental and emotional rehearsal. Rehearsing it in your mind/spirit/heart. I think the best line I ever heard on the subject I believe came from the man I think is the greatest golfer of all time.
Jack Nicklaus was asked about the secret to his incredible success, and he said, “I have never hit a golf ball, without first seeing it go into the hole. You never see a great golfer just walk up to a golf ball and hit it. Every great golfer walks up near the golf ball imagines hitting it and then walks up to it and hits it. When you actually hit the golf ball you just let yourself hit it.
You actually play the shot on auto-pilot, without thought just as you have rehearsed it. Your mind/spirit/heart knows just how to do it exactly right. You have imagined everything about this success. What it would look like, sound like, and most of all what it would feel like. Now do it. Someone asked Yogi Berra what he thought of when he hit the baseball, and Yogi so eloquently replied, “I can't think and hit the baseball at the same time.”
If you want to use Alpha to become more prosperous. (And why not? You deserve it). You understand that prosperity is clearly a consciousness. The proof is, if you take a person with “poverty consciousness”, you know, the ones that are always broke, always in debt, always late with their bills. Take a person like this and give them a lot of money. What happens is that they blow it all and find themselves deeper in debt than they were when they started. On the other hand, if you take a person with “prosperity consciousness” and strip them of every penny, what happens is, they figure out a way to get it all back again. It's clearly a consciousness. The vast majority of people have neither, most people have “break even consciousness”.
This is the key. imagine what you want, as if you have already got it, imagine it over and over again, and by far most important, IMAGINE DOING IT WITH GREAT PASSION!!
Most students suffer from Test Taking Anxiety at least some of the time. Some suffer every time. A lot of this performance anxiety is a direct response to the natural and normal fear of the unknown. Mental rehearsal (imagining in your mind/spirit/heart taking this test) is very important in creating familiarity and overcoming this fear. If you're going into the Alpha Brainwave State to prepare yourself to do great on a test, you close your eyes and you go to your peaceful place as the doorway into Alpha and then imagine yourself waking up in the morning thinking, “Today is my test, and I am ready.”
You are to far away to see what questions the teacher is asking, and to far away to see what answers you are writing, but what you can see, from your invisible vantage point, what you can see, is the smile on your face and the gleam in your eye, and the way the pen is just moving so confidently down the page. You know what you look like when you are doing great, and that is exactly what you look like. Imagine finishing the test, putting down your pen and watch yourself nodding and smiling as you check to see that all your answers are correct. The bell rings and you walk out the door, and then you imagine that it is instantly the next class day. You imagine walking back into the classroom, imagine the teacher passes back the corrected exams, imagine you see a big red “A” on top of yours, and you get very very excited.

- focused passion -
Focus brings to bear the power of the conscious mind, and Passion brings to bear the power of the subconscious mind.
When the two minds come together in harmony, something magical happens.
They create a third mind, a higher consciousness.
This is literally a second level of thinking.
