NLP - NEURO-LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING

What is it?
In simple terms its how the brain works, the connection between language and behaviour. The structure of subjective experience, or how we do things in our mind, how we know what we know.

NLP allows you to have the kinds of experiences you want, by learning how you know what you know you can change your responses to things. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we interface and communicate with other people and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create. Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behaviour (programming).

NLP is a collection of techniques (tools) that enable you to change how you think and the way you think, which enables you to eliminate unwanted habits, change negative emotions, and improve self-image and self esteem to become the person you want to be. Most of the time, we are our greatest enemy. From childhood on we are literally scripted like a program by things that were said to us by our parents, other close relatives, teachers or friends. Experiences that happen to us are also stored in our memory and our brain is making conclusions about what we can do and more importantly, what we can’t or shouldn’t.

This way of experiencing reality results in a set of rules that become our belief-structure and therefore our mirror of 'reality' and as an important part of it our own identity. But this reality isn’t a fixed thing, it is an image, a perception we have in our minds. If it comes to our own self these beliefs can be supporting for us, or limiting.

You may not even be aware of such self-limiting beliefs, but certainly they are there inside. Even if you made a lot of personal progress in working on yourself, there are a lot of areas were limiting beliefs are holding you back.

If such rules are working deep in our unconscious mind, these limiting beliefs are constantly influencing and distorting our possibilities and lives. If you can become aware of these and identify them, you are able to change them, and by that, change your reality for the better. If we live by limiting beliefs formed in the past, conscious or unconscious, we are doomed to repeat the results of the past over and over and thereby reaffirming these stupid belief-structures.

The important thing is to have empowering beliefs, so that we are supporting ourselves instead of standing in our own way.

My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny - Elaine Maxwell Blue Monkey
