Neuro-Linguistic Programming

I remember when I heard of Neuro-Linguistic Programming in my early 20’s.  I felt drawn to it then.  Unconsciously, a huge part of me wasn’t ready for the drastic changes that would happen in my life had I signed up for the course and if I wasn’t ready for that then how would I be able to help others in their process.

In reality, I don’t exactly remember how Neuro-Linguistic Programming came back into my life.  I had just moved back from New York to live in Los Angeles and Neuro-Linguistic Programming wasn’t even on the radar.  I certainly wasn’t searching for it, but here it was a decade later and now I was ready to make those big changes and assist people along the way.

A year and a half later, I was certified as an NLP Master Practitioner by the American Hypnosis Association and shortly after began working with clients professionaly.

When I first started I remember my brain felt like it was stetching.  I didn’t realize that a lot of the negative beliefs, limiting decisions and self-worth issues were making me ‘smaller’.  I was shrinking into myself instead of blossoming.  The person that started the program wasn’t the same person that finished the program.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming teaches you to ‘live at cause’ in your life and to take responsibility so that you aren’t giving up your power to others or situations but actively investing in your life.  Re-creating your experiences so that you get the optimum response each time.

One tool we that we use in Neuro-Linguistic Programming is Reframing.  That I know each of you can utilize in your everyday lives.  The essence of Reframing is to “Separate the intention from the behavior.”

NLPinfo.com states, “if you can change the context, meaning or content you can change the original meaning. “  Basically, it’s changing the way we look at an experience or situation that can stretch one’s perspective.

For example, a friend comes to you that’s been struggling with dating.  They’re going on several dates a week with different people and no one really seems to ‘click’.  You’re response could be,  “Seems like you have a lot of opportunities to fall in love” or “You know I haven’t been on a date in an entire year.  Could you show me some tips?”  And try, “You really know what you want in a relationship and aren’t willing to settle for less.”  It’s really about changing their perspective.

This technique I use on a daily basis to gain insight and to widen my perspective.  It has been something that has assisted me a lot in my growth not only with Neuro-Linguistic Programming and with clients but in life.

As we do the work on ourselves.  We become much more than we were the day before.  It’s a constant quest to constantly evolve, improve and to live the life we’ve always dreamed.  Imagine what you could achieve if you just raised the standards for yourself?

Take an emotional Sh#*

In my experience, one of the downfalls in life is not being able or willing to release your pent up emotions.  They can be deep seeded even, traumatic at times and yet we hold onto them like a best friend that you’ve never wanted to have.  Holding onto your emotions can have negative effect on your life.

Let’s paint a not so pretty picture of someone who is physically constipated.  It’s being held all in, day after day, eventually the person begins to feel bloated, overly full, irritable and eventually begins to feel foggy.   A lack of energy sets in with all the toxins that are backed up in their system.

Hopefully/Eventually the person clears out all the garbage.  Not only do they feel clearer and more energized their mood is in high spirits, things are brighter and life contains much more clarity.

The analogy is the same with one’s emotions.  It’s the same thing, Emotional Constipation. You hold all those repressed emotions in and eventually you start to react in the same way, just on emotional level.  Those emotions would begin to become toxic to the emotional body if they aren’t released in a healthy way.  What if you could release all of them, what if you could change your life by letting go of all the negative emotions?  It would leave a lot more room and space for your greatness to come in.  A lot less ‘baggage’ and a zest for life.

Don’t avoid them.  They are there to remind you that something is out of balance in the emotional body and/or system.

Some of the ways I’ve released my emotions is by getting regular Energy Healing and NLP sessions.  On a daily basis I write regularly, sing and draw to keep my emotions balanced.  I’ve known many who’ve done a combination of professional medical assistance and others who integrate the two.  My point is let that sh@* out in a healthy way.


Express Yourself

We have often been taught to hold our tongue.  In other words, hold back your power. Conform, limit and supress. It’s often that we supress who we are in order to please others, ourselves and societies values.

When we express who we truly, we find ourselves. We access our unlimited ‘potentiality’. What if I had the job I truly love? How would my life be different? What if I stopped living from a place of what’s expected of me and started living from my soul’s song? Today is a better day than any to start. Could you start right now? How would your life improve? What if I said yes to happiness? Could I stop just cruising through life and really put my hands on the wheel and take control? What if I started investing in GREATNESS and the pursuit of EXCELLENCE?

I ask each of you today to express yourself by doing something you love. Plant the seed and all you’ll have to do is water it.
