"The technique Freud recommends analysts to adopt in therapy is the same
as the magician’s trance state: zone out so that you pay attention
without paying attention, ready to jump on associations without a reason
behind what you notice, just noticing: this opens the unconscious."
Seems to me like an overcomplicated way of saying, "Listen to your intuition," or, "Do a rep of the lunar set."
If you spend less on thinking about your strategy, you have more to spend on thinking about tactics - about the thing you're actually doing, rather than its mere description.
