It helps if you have a flight controller or ESC governor where you can enable autorotation bailout. Then you can practice dropping down, building up head speed and getting the flare down without actually having to land it since you can spool right back up and fly out of it. Once you've practiced that a gazillion times you'll have the muscle memory built up to bring it all the way down and land with confidence. An advanced feature of some of these systems (VBar, Ikon, etc) is a setup called "idle on bailout." So during and auto attempt it doesn't fully stop the motor, it just brings it down to a very low idle (a couple hundred RPM) so you can spool back up quickly with less stress on the system. It's a good way to practice autos with less risk.
