Nominalisations & Entities - The Perfect Path To Endless Failure

I just received an email with the title of, "Kill procrastination!"

Procrastination is a nominalisation, a process verb that has been turned into a noun. In NLP, it's said that if you can't put it into a wheelbarrow, then it's probably a nominalisation. But it's worse than just that. When you start having personal, emotional (energetic!) relationships with your nominalisation, an entity is born. Only, it doesn't exist ...

NLP talks of patterns, I talk of patterns. Sometimes I even talk of meta-patterns and mega-meta-patterns LOL. So - what is a pattern?

How To Multi-Task - Multi-Tasking From The NLP Point Of View

How To Multi-Task - Multi-Tasking From The NLP Point Of View

Multi-tasking - what is that? How does that work? My oldest son recently became a Pa and made the comment that he would now have to learn to multitask as he had to look after the baby for some days of the week. Now I've run a business with a baby on my hip so I know a thing or two about the kind of multi-tasking he's talking about, namely doing more than one thing at a time. However, I learned some harsh lessons on the reality of multi-tasking so I thought this was a good opportunity to put the baby down, place the NLP virtual reality headgear over the left eye and take a look at multi-tasking from the NLP point of view.

Why Idiosyncratic Intrapersonal Metaphor Matters!

Why Idiosyncratic Intrapersonal Metaphor Matters!

Honestly ... People just don't know what they don't know. They presume that what they know is good enough to get by - and I guess it is. To get you "by." By what, I'm not sure; but that's beside the point. The point is that without a thorough understanding of the idiosyncratic intrapersonal nature of metaphor, true happiness can't be found. And that's a fact!

Visualisation Exercise For Beginners

Visualisation Exercise For Beginners

Visualisation or imaging or even imagining isn't the same process as "looking through your hard eyes".

It isn't a physical skill that is required for visualisation but instead a shift in consciousness you might call "learning to see with the eyes of night" or your energy eyes instead. Think of it like ...

Higher - A Different Direction In Hypnosis

"And now you are feeling very sleepy ... very heavy ... and you drift down and down into a deep, deep state of relaxation ..."

That's our classical hypnosis, taking us "down" into relaxation and then unconsciousness, which always begs the question of, "Did I learn something here? Did something happen or did I just go to sleep?"

Well, hypnosis means sleep but I think we can safely extend that, go the other way and instead of ever deeper and deeper into unconsciousness, we might as well go HIGHER.

Killing The Part Of Me That Is My Father - Parts, NLP & Language

This parts conflict scenario is something that does happen, we are familiar with it, and so we are generally happy to accept the idea that people have "parts". In and of itself, that's already both dubious as well as problematic; where the concept of parts begins to move into insanity is when we start talking in terms of, "The part of me that is my father."

The Candle

The Candle

Here is a classic example of a NLP style metaphor teaching story that is also quite hypnotic.

What's particularly cool about it is that this really happened, so it's a true story, just phrased in a slightly more mystical fashion and with the requisite language patterns in place.

Enjoy The Candle ... :-)

Can You Read? Are You Sure ...?

I had a bit of a diatribe today about the word, "to read".

What does that mean?

To stutter out a string of letter pahonetically and somehow understand that this string of letters is supposed to mean "khe-ha-tut" - or cat?

No. I don't know what that is, but that's not reading.

Bill Gates Quote Is NLP In A Nutshell

Bill Gates Quote Is NLP In A Nutshell

Alright, so it's called NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming. What that means is that you can program your neurology with language, the language being the software for the neurology, and the neurology being the hardware that runs the software.

And here comes Bill Gates with a fabulous quote that really does sum up all of NLP in a nutshell.

Hypnotic Poem: Relax

What is the difference between a poem and a hypnotic induction? I don't think there is one. Both should take charge of the readers/listeners/subjects internal representations and take them wherever the poet or hypnotist wants to take them. Here is an example of a relaxation induction, rendered as a hypnotic poem, and suitably entitled, "Relax!"

NLP Diagram: The Map Is Not The Territory

NLP Diagram Map Not Territory - NLP Head DiagramThe Map Is Not The Territory ... in this much quoted NLP basic statement lies not just a world of possibilities, but as many worlds of possibilities and potential as there are people who are making maps of the territory.

Here is a NLP diagram illustrating the basic principle of map and territory (also known as the "NLP Head"), internal representations, intrapersonal reality and how it comes to be that if we change someone's internal representations, we change their world.

NLP Internal Representations: The Alpha & Omega Of Communication Excellence

One - if not actually, THE! - master key to understanding how communication works and how we can use language, state, touch, movement and energy to "influence" what a person thinks and how they feel is to really understand what internal representations are and how they work.

In fact, the contribution Count Alfred Korzybski made when he wrote Science & Sanity and for the first time in human recorded history, laid out how reality, internal representations and language hang together in a "geared mechanism" can simply NOT be underestimated.

NLP Language & Energy Examples & Exercises

Phonological Ambiguities - What Are They Good For?

That's an interesting question. The first answer I have to that is that phonological ambiguities are fun and they always make me chuckle inside. Which is not something that one might easily say about a lot of other NLP patterns.

So I guess I better explain what a phonological ambiguity is for the newbies and then we can go on to wonder what they're good for, apart from keeping Silvia amused.

Singing NLP Reframe Plus

Once in a while, I have a little outburst with my NLP hat on. I do love it when that happens! NLP is SUCH fun, and simple things like the NLP reframe can be taken to SUCH extremes - and then it's even more fun. Now, to business. There is something more scary than public speaking. And that's ... singing in public!

Apart from basic NLP reframing, there are another happy dozen NLP patterns employed in this short sequence. See if you can spot them all - and if not, just lay back and enjoy!

NLP Patterns - How To Build A New NLP Pattern

How do you build new NLP patterns?

The simple answer is by modeling a strategy of some kind, and create a basic NLP model. Then you test it, refine it, write it up in a step-by-step fashion and so the model becomes a pattern.

Many people think that the first step to NLP modeling is ...

Mapping Across - Bug Fixing Your Mind

NLP Modeling is one thing - where you take a strategy that works in a particular context and you duplicate the strategy so that when you run it, you get the same beneficial outcomes as the original upon whom the model was based. A simple example of straight NLP modelling can be found here.

However, NLP modeling becomes much more fun and much more multi-dimensional when we extract a pattern and map it across to a completely different situation, environment or modality.

Here is an example of mapping across a strategy from bug fixing a piece of software to bug fixing your mind!

The Alex Model Of Dealing With The Crap Modern Business Throws At Us

NLP modeling is a fine thing.

Once you get your head around how it works, there are opportunities for modelling excellence everywhere.

There are strategies and patterns that people do which are blatantly so much successful that what you might be using yourself that you take one look at that and say, "Yes! That's brilliant! I'm going to do exactly what he's doing - it's working, and I want it to work for me, as well!"

One such NLP modelling derived models is the above "Alex Model". It is truly brilliant, and brilliantly useful in 1001 situations us modern folk find ourselves in on a regular basis.

Morphing Into Uncharted Waters

I just had a lovely NLP language/internal representations experience on a German translators forum. The poor guys there were tearing their hair out how to translate this sentence: "As the credit crisis deepens and morphs into uncharted waters, a little perspective is necessary on what it is costing, in both dollars and human terms."
