A. It is not uncommon for first-time users to relax so deeply in the early sessions that they may feel that they have been asleep. Generally, you will find that the tendency to doze off will disappear after those first few sessions, and you will more easily engage while listening to the sessions. Try altering the time you schedule your session. If you are doing it late at night before bed and when you are tired from the day's activities, try earlier in the evening or after you get up in the morning. In any case, if you are waking from the session on command, you are probably not asleep but instead, in a deeper state of relaxation, slipping from Alpha state into Theta. Your subconscious will still hear much of the messages but it is far more effective if you avoid this extended state and stay in the aware Alpha level.
A. Yes, this type of relaxation will draw upon your reserves of fluids so before you get into your sessions, always take a drink of clear water.
A. Not really but the program is designed to be heard with a day between each so the mind can assimilate and act upon the messages. Having said that, you may increase your schedule to four times a week but make sure you begin a new session no later then the following week.
A. This is probably a new experience for you and you may be experiencing an instinctive resistance because you are concerned about allowing yourself to go to an unknown place in your mind. First, it is important to remember that the Pro Golf IQ program is based upon known science and is designed only to be beneficial. While deep relaxation might seem to be new to you, in fact, you experience it every night as you fall asleep. Don't be afraid of deep relaxation. It's there you'll discover an untapped power that is in all of us to change our lives for the better without drugs or therapy. It comes without side effects and when you get into it, I promise you will never look back.

A. Under NO circumstances should you listen to any of the sessions while driving, operating machinery or doing anything that requires your full and undivided attention.

A. The real answer lies in judging how you behaved before and then after beginning your Pro Golf IQ program. Stress manifests itself on many levels in our lives, and not just in our golf games. The positive impact of your ProGolf IQ program can result in an increase in self confidence, concentration, and a feeling of calm relaxation in all areas of your life, so yes, it could be the program.
A. Everyone responds in different ways. It's important that you allow yourself to adapt to the program at your own pace, and don't compare yourself with others. Some people see results immediately, and others take a few sessions; but in the end, your golf will have improved markedly by the time you reach the end of your program.
That's great, if you're enjoying the feeling of relaxation, go ahead and listen as often as you like; however, don't jump ahead by listening to the sessions out of order, or before they're scheduled. You must listen to one session per week, for a total of five weeks.
A. If the gap is any longer than one week, start the program from the beginning again.
A. You can repeat the program as often as you like, but you should allow a gap of four to six weeks before you start again.
A. Absolutely. As kids, we use our imagination more frequently. Unfortunately, by the time we become adults, the focus of our imagination is often on the negative aspects of life. But with practice, you'll find your childhood abilities all over again. Stick to it and you'll be amazed at how easy it gets.
A. Not at all. In fact, it will serve to enhance your learning experience, so enjoy both, and in the end you'll be a better golfer.
