Finding a Positive Intention | NLP is Fun

Dear Friends Let us do an exercise.
This is a great way to feel better quickly by discovering the sometimes "Hidden" positive intention in another persons actions.

For example, when a Person does something you believe to be Unkind or Negative. Instead of making yourself feel worse with replaying it over and over again, This exercise will help you to look for the Positive Intention instead.
It has been said that Hurt people, Hurt People and may or may not know they are doing so.
Either way, this is all about making sure you feel the best that you can feel.

Remember all behavior has a Positive intention sometimes the positive intention is so hidden that one might miss it unless you had a magnifying glass.

With NLP we have the opportunity to find out how we can get back on track and find the Positive Intention underneath all of the chaos.

There are three parts to this exercise:

Explain what the disagreeable behavior is for yourself, and state why this behavior is not useful.

a)  Take Three Deep Breaths (at least, perhaps you may need more) then when you feel relaxed. 
b)  Go into yourself and think about the part of you which would generate this kind of unproductive behavior and give it a characteristic and a personality. 
c) Bring the characteristics of this part into awareness, as if you had a part just like it
d) Translate the behavior using this "part" to discover the why 
e) Begin to think of this part as a character or personality, maybe even use a metaphor to name it
f) Find out if  this part works in alignment with the whole of you
G) Initiate a role playing game with this part, and ask the character what it wanted to gain from this behavior
H) look for the deepest value and be direct in asking about the real intention you can say what were you hoping to achieve with this behavior.

Keep asking "why" until you understand the real and deepest Motivations to the behaviors.
Think of this as an exploration, and keep going as you uncover more into your consciousness.

Powerful Suggestions | NLP is Fun

Today I would like to speak about the importance of how you can use powerful suggestions for yourself and others while in Hypnosis.
I have drawn inspiration from Kirin webb 's Language pattern Bible which I highly recommend.

Kerin speaks about How Dick Sutphen uses "Power words" and Direct suggestions in his Hypnotherapy Audios.
I am a Fan of Dick Sutphen and had the chance to Interview him many years ago. He was made to be a Hypnotherapist with his easy and powerful Hypnotic intention and delivery.

I also use Power words in my own client work and it can be a super extension to maximize Affirmations while embedding them into the unconscious mind. The fact that you are delivering them in altered states is Everything. Well we already know the power of Hypnosis.

This changes your Neurology instantly and begins the deliberate process of shifting limitations in your old way of doing things.
Now you can get into the frequency of what you really want.
Tada ! What could be better, that…

The Conscious Mind | NLP is Fun

In Neuro Linguistic programming we speak of The Conscious mind and the Unconscious mind, If you would like to learn about the unconscious mind then you can do so by clicking here   and also on this NLP is Fun post I wrote about programming your unconscious mind.

The Conscious Mind is about real time awareness it is a state of awareness that is about your focused attention, what you are focusing on at the moment.
And also this description is an example of what it could be and what we mean when we use it. We use it as a metaphor because it is a practical way to use language to describe an experience.

The Conscious mind would also represent chunking down into details like when we use the Meta Model for example, as opposed to the Milton Model which we use Chunking Up in ambiguity for the most part.

When we speak of The Conscious Mind we mean attention to Stimulus of what is happening inside (in detail) and Outside (In Detail).

You may have heard an NLP Practitioner say the Conscious mind is th…

More about your Unconscious Mind | NLP is Fun

Neuro linguistic Programming is about making sure you have more options and choices available to you at any given time.
One of the most important presuppositions then is to understand our objective is to program the Unconscious mind to be even more effective for our desired outcome.

I have written about how to "Program your unconscious mind" here  in this post I will give a few tips about what your unconscious mind is busy doing.
If your Conscious mind is a wallet, your unconscious mind is your Luggage.

The unconscious mind has stored All experience. Including experience that has been experienced "Out of consciousness"
The Unconscious mind works well to help you, and is using previously programmed information. your most frequent filtering and beliefs.
in order to change a belief it must be reprogrammed in your unconscious mind.

As you may know all transformation is created by adjusting how you do your unconscious process and the goal is to overload the critical faculty an…
