Sammy, you just started, right? Two lessons? It's really way too early for adventures into the meta-level of aikido training, dude...way too early to be analyzing your own training process. Let all that go and just train.
LOL I think he knows that... hes asking how he can achieve that. I had the same problem. Its one of those things you just have to do. It just happens. And I think the only real answer is time. But trust me meditation helps a whole lot as well. Sammy I can tell your an energetic guy who thinks a lot, so learning to be mentally quiet is something that will not come easily for you. But it will come. Just try not to force it. Allow it to come.
