-move your grip over a little bit more towards eastern, but not too much
-loosen your arm up, make sure you have no tension, that you arent muscling the ball
-throw the ball more behind you or higher up--experiment with your toss a bit

Thats most likely it. You need to get the correct swing path. Typically people hit the ball 7 to 1 or 8 to 2 o'clock. Hitting the ball at a slightly lower contact point than normal may help you learn the brushing motion.

no, the correct way, is to go up and to the side, this will give the kick a massive effect
