NLP | How to Improve your calibration skills | NLP is Fun

You can improve your NLP Calibration skills right now, even if you believe you are rubbish at it so far.
I know you have heard a about  NLP Sensory acuity and  NLP Calibration.
Now let us go in a little deeper.

When you experience your NLP Practitioners training you learn the importance of Calibration for building Rapport, and for effectively using NLP full stop.

We improve our calibration not just at NLP Practitioners training but constantly.
The better we are at calibrating in NLP, actually the more flexible we can be and the more we can understand a persons Model of the world and how they are processing.

One of my greatest hero's Bob Marley said among other great things:
"Every action causes a reaction .... "

Honorable Robert Nesta Marley 
Now to calibrate also can mean to negotiate ....
Even at a stand still

In fact to Calibrate means to understand the unconscious non Verbal signals.
The out of conscious truth.
All NLP is based on unconscious processing.

You may be able to know what the Transmitter transmits before the Transmitter consciously knows he/she is transmitting such evidence.

This is the beauty of NLP and they may say to you "How did you know this, are you a mind reader ?"
Interesting isn't it.

To be a great communicator can make you a person who thinks differently, staying in the game longer and pays more attention to the other stuff...
This actually is certain as long as you are improving with Neuro linguistic programming.

Like .... The stuff the transmitter is actually communicating unconsciously.

To observe these transmissions is the beginning.
You have yet to understand what the transmitter can mean by them within this particular context.
However, honestly you now just have a starting point.
Although, you my be piecing it together.

Remember, as an NLP'er we are looking for any thing different, This means:
It feels different 
It Looks different 
It sounds different  
It smells different 
It tastes different 

The combination of any of these things are clues,
The more you know how to calibrate the easier it will be to solve the puzzle.

You can learn how to understand a persons sequences and this is the goal of calibration.
In NLP this will be their processing strategy.
It is a recipe,
If you observe the person under stress, this is a clue to pay more attention to their behaviour now.

What you hear and see may not match what your unconscious intuition is telling you. This is important to know for a few reasons:

 You may miss the turning point of any situation leading you to fail to resolve a thing or worse.
A) with a coaching client
b) Family member
c) Loved one
d) New Job
e) More money or an extended offer

In other words always look for the opportunities.
As with anything, practice makes perfect.

Remember we are looking for any glimmer of a shift in state.

Some traditional NLP areas are

Colour change
Micro expressions
Breathing changes
Posture Change 
Sudden movements anywhere
Eye changes
Flaring of nostrils
Tonality shifts 
Different eye accessing cues   
This is not all please note ALL Subtle state shifts.

Most of all real eyes learning NLP is an ongoing unconscious awareness that will become natural to maybe in the begiing and certainly in the end.
So please refrain from overwhelming yourself and remember to chunk down.
You have got to Relax ...
Learning is easier when you are more relaxed 
And also
You can focus on a certain area if you like.

Btw did you know, many people miss loud body language signals and only listen to the words.
They may even argue against unconscious signal being real.
This makes me giggle, every time.
Especially if they are firing off loads of theirs while explaining their delusions.

Remember what Bob said 
Every action causes a reaction.
Well begin to notice your own reactions.
Are you easily triggered .... ?
What about if People don't believe in NLP 

When I first started I must admit I wanted everyone to learn it.
I still do, although I do not get upset any more if people do not follow through after knowing the value of NLP.

As my grandmother used to say "It will all end in tears you know"
She felt as if practically everything was going to end in tears so no real Biggie ..

Notice what you notice and trust yourself.
Have fun with it.

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…
