NLP | Simplifying NLP | NLP is Fun

As an NLP Practitioner you become mindful of your state, quickly realizing that "State is everything".
In NLP we speak of Internal representations. This meaning how you "re present" information inside your own head.
(Your version of reality).

The Neuro part of Neuro linguistic programming is about your sensory experience:
Your Neurology
Your Nervous system
How your unconscious mind responds automatically using sensory experience.

This includes how your body automatically responds:
  • Embarrassment may change your face colour
  • Nervous may give you a twitch 
  • Anger may cause you to speak faster, turn red or shout and more..
  • Love may cause you to smile
  • Anticipation may make your heart beat faster
and so on ..

So Internal representations conscious or unconscious can cause a physiological response.
And changing a physiological response can change state.

For instance, I can shift your attention to just pointing to a thing that symbolizes something else. Or I can use words. Both are a pattern interrupt.
The tell is, what has worked, to create the state shift.

By listening to your linguistics we can usually identify your internal models and we can also change them using linguistics in various patterns to communicate with you.

Programming is a Pattern or a strategy, it can be one you are already using or you can use it to become more effective.
NLP is actually this simple.
You can make your own patterns, they can be established NLP Patterns, they can be adaptations of another persons pattern.

There are no limit.
How you use breath can be a pattern, for instance if it changes your state. Which it usually does.
In NLP we know all external consciousness affects an internal state change.

Communication Verbally
Communication Non verbally

As Neuro linguistic programmers we are looking for the patterns that work and seeking the patterns that seem to be causing a problem.

Many times a person is unaware of their own patterns
An observer may be able to notice them
This is the power of Neuro linguistic programming.

As NLP Practitioners we know what is on the inside will show up on the outside.
Also what appears to be on the outside, usually does influence your state.
This is a presupposition not limited to NLP, many schools of thought have this as a reality.

I invite you to expand your models and seek your patterns. The ones that work and the ones that do not work.
The goal is effectiveness.

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…
