Hmmm... I am not convinced. Stage fright goes away after you find a way to recover from mistakes. Basically, when you get to the point that you don't care if you make a mistake.

I think in music, especially flamenco, melodic mistakes are forgiven, it's the rhythmical mistakes that can't be forgiven.

For me, the best way to recover from a mistake is to learn to jump back on track from any measure of the piece. Sometimes, I learn the piece or falseta starting from the last measure. So if I make a mistake, I just wait a little and jump back in on the next measure, and that can only last a second or 2.

If there are certain places in the piece that you know you will be making a mistake, then you haven't learned the piece. You know those spots are trouble because you didn't get it right while practicing. If it's too hard, simplify it in practice and move on.

Mind practices don't always work for everyone. Plus, I would like to see more proof than your video that your method works. It sounds like this video is just from your personal experience than anything else.
