Neuro-Linguistic Programming offers a way to take control of how you feel, think, and act, or guide others to do the same. The control panel is in the unconscious mind, and NLP works on making changes through a variety of processes and techniques. I call them “Mind Games.” It is very playful, and yet, the winning is huge.
These processes involve altering the images and movies we run in our mind, altering the inner voices and soundtracks, creating new moods and emotional responses, and creating new belief sets. All these create new behaviors in the world.
I had a spider phobia for decades. Conscious mind (thinking) couldn’t erase the fear. Who knew that NLP could do the trick in a matter of minutes? In my case, changing a sound in my mind erased the fear.
At it’s heart, here’s what we’re doing. We’re taking conscious control of unconscious processes.
