Self Application – Swiss Ball

Our NLP Practitioner and Hypnotherapy Training courses in Newcastle do emphasise self application. You can learn the basics including plenty of self application on our NLP Introduction days or December Hypnosis introduction weekend workshop.

One of the really great things about applied NLP is applying it to yourself. John Grinders ‘New Code NLP’ has a very large component of ‘activating new neural circuitry’ in order to affect change. New code games have as one of their design variables the using of contra-lateral ( each side of the body and brain ) motions.

This is of course the principle of many ‘new age systems’ like New Code or Brain Gym exercises. Go back a little further still to Yoga. Its not new in fact its very very old the ideology of using the whole body in motion to affect beneficial change.

Running for some distance has exactly the same principle effects. For those who prefer the comfort of their own home and an exercise ball here is a very simple yet effective change process.

Please take all necessary precautions for your own safety and well-being when using exercise equipment.

the Meta Model Easier Made – Part 6

And they are off again! Having a laugh and a joke with each other, taking and conversing, sharing something special. They really listen to each other, they are indeed a great couple. Notice how they enjoy each others company. Not like those! They don’t get on too well. He is always arguing with her, she is never loving him no matter what. Their relationship looks very much one sided almost as a relationship with a variable limp. He isnt really relating to her. Haven’t they noticed that birds and butterflys have symmetrical wings and they work together in unison during flight, as one heart beating.

The way people express situations and events can sometimes seem skewed and sheered, can feel off-balance, off kilter, a bit one-sided. In the words of the philosopher Turner

It Takes Two Baby It Takes Two Baby

the Meta Model essentially does two things when used ‘as intended’

  1. It assist stuck clients to change – Therapeutic
  2. It gets high quality information – Business / Pleasure / Therapeutic

the current Integrity NLP Practitioner in Newcastle will uncover the Meta Model and those who are on our next Newcastle Hypnotherapy course beginning February 2008 will leave with a well grounded and practical knowledge of applying this process.

Stephen Gilligan Learning Trance

Part of my new Newcastle based advanced hypnotherapy course Front Line Skills will examine some very powerful and advanced language patterns usage in hypnotherapy.

Many of these language patterns are explored on our Newcastle based Hypnotherapy Training course but … Front Line Skills will take this to another level using Hypnotherapy and NLP current skills as a foundation for development.   Stephen Gilligan demonstrates many powerful patterns in his ‘Learning Trance’.

There is now a ‘mp3’ hypno-therapeutic trance recording of a Stephen Gilligan’s Learning Trance for your listening pleasure.  This trance was transcribed by my very good friend Alan Jones of empowerment trainings.

This mp3 is in the ‘Free Resources‘ section. To listen to this mp3 you need to have subscribed to my complementary newsletter, you can this by clicking here.

the Meta Model Easier Made – Part 5

Its always the same is init!   All people everywhere are always learning new things but some never realise it at the time.  Listening to the language people use ( and this includes the language when you talk to yourself too ) can give you a massive amount of information about how they are processing and this applies to everyone.  This never means what you glean is correct but it always gives you intuitions that you can tune into which you then simply must always check out to be sure.  Always sound advice that, checking out your intuitions, now, its about time, so lets take some more steps forward to your deepening understanding of the Meta Model. Do remember you can do this anytime too whether your wanting to do our Newcastle Hypnotherapy training course or our Newcastle NLP Practitioner course ( next one begins January 2008 )

the Meta Model essentially does two things when used ‘as intended’

  1. It assist stuck clients to change – Therapeutic
  2. It gets high quality information – Business / Pleasure / Therapeutic

the current Integrity NLP Practitioner in Newcastle will cover the Meta Model and those who are on our next Newcastle Hypnotherapy course beginning February 2008 will leave with a well grounded and practical knowledge of applying this process.

Its always useful if you are in any therapeutic field like the many complementary therapies or thinking of taking up your calling, you could take our Newcastle hypnotherapy course – it will help your applications therapy easier and faster and you always know a lot more about this set of verbal responses than you may consciously realise.

get to grips that these Meta Model interventions are a set of specific verbal responses to a set of very specific words and phrases.   Its real easy so not so surprisingly ‘clients’ and people are using them all the time, so its easy to pick them out too.

the Art of Applied NLP is when and in what contexts to apply these specific verbal responses so as not to lose friends and alienate yourself.

The Meta Model – Therapeutic Process (5)

Please note that when you use this ( or any ) process with clients you are at best creating a context where they can change their own situation.

Now lets get down to doing with just a few examples. The example will take the form of a ‘clients’ verbalisation of a problem and the specific ‘form’ of the Meta Model response for this particular problem – got the vibe already?

Notice there is no requirement to know the labels for these ‘responses’.

One thing that really is worth keeping in mind if you choose to practice recognising from and responding to in this way to others ( or your self ) –
do do it respectfully and with rapport!

The ‘problems’ or stuck states statements are presented in RED and the verbal responses in GREEN


People always piss me off.

They always piss you off?

what? are you saying, that everybody always pisses you off all the time?


I never seem to learn anything useful!

Are you honestly saying that you have never once learned just one useful thing?

what? Never?


I am always making mistakes!

Do you mean that, because it sounds like you are stating that everything you ever do and at all the times you have done anything is has always been a mistake or have I misunderstood you?


I am always correct in my judgements.

What always?

So you are saying that no matter what judgement you make about any subject irrespective of whether you understand nothing about it you will always be correct?


I am always happy and always learning all the time

cool! – maybe I can learn you amazing skills!

this to me, in this context, does not sound like any sort of a problem!
So no intervention required – remember the “lose friends and alienate yourself” good advice.

 

All of the above ‘interventions‘ take the form of a response to verbal ‘claims about everlasting and immutable truths’

Detect the over generalised information. 
You can do this by checking what you have heard and asking yourself weather this ( to make sense ) applies true through all time and all space – that is it is a universal truth.

As you detect the ‘universally generalised’ material simply question the over generalisation.  You can do it like these ways below

  • Repeat the generalisation back and emphasise it. ALWAYS? NEVER? EVERYBODY?
  • Really over-exaggerate ( use humour ). You saying its always been this way for as long as you can remember, like this all the time, never changing – get away with you!
  • I bet someone as ( clever, smart, creative ) as you can think of just one time when this wasn’t the case

the Meta Model Easier Made – Part 4

You know, when you are learning really well, or just a time when you have easily and comfortably assimilated knowledge, anyway whichever way comes most naturally to you is absolutely fine. This whole meta Model process is really just about listening and then realising which parts you make up and which parts you don’t, so as you begin to realise, more clearly and more fully, you can notice what you bring to the table ( your content ) and what others bring ( their content ) and all the while as you do that just forget about it and – simply notice the process.

the Meta Model essentially does two things when used ‘as intended’

  1. It assist stuck clients to change – Therapeutic
  2. It gets high quality information – Business / Pleasure / Therapeutic

the current Integrity NLP Practitioner in Newcastle will cover the Meta Model and those who are on our next Newcastle Hypnotherapy course beginning February 2008 will leave with a well grounded and practical knowledge of applying this process.

Its most useful if you are in any therapeutic field like the many complementary therapies or thinking of taking up your calling, you could take our Newcastle hypnotherapy course – it will make applications of your therapy easier and faster and you know a lot more about this set of verbal responses than you may currently realise.

Tune in to the fact that Meta Model interventions are a set of specific verbal responses to a set of very specific words and phrases. Its real easy so not so surprisingly ‘clients’ and people in general use all the time, so its easy to hear them too.

the Art of Applied NLP is when and in what contexts to apply these specific verbal responses so as not to lose friends and alienate yourself.

The Meta Model – Therapeutic Process (4)

Please note that when you use this ( or any ) process with clients you are at best creating a context where they can change their own situation.

She said I was tired of her.

Who said “I was tired of her”?
“tired”, How specifically?
who is it you “tired of”?


I talked to people who were bored!

What did you ‘talk’ about?
Which people did you talk to?
How or what “bored” the people?


Some people just talk about NLP.

Which people specifically “just talk about NLP”?
What do they “just talk” about?
Whom do they “talk” to?


He grabbed her and said it!

Who grabbed who?
How was she grabbed?
Where did he grab her?
What was said to who?


Its an interesting explanation.

what is “an interesting explanation”?
who is being interested?
who / what is doing the “explanation”?
what form does the explanation take?
An interesting explanation if what?


Relax,just notice the process!

how specifically to “notice”?
what process specifically?
who should relax?
relax, how / what specifically?


All of the above ‘interventions‘ take the form of a response to ‘missing’ or DELETED information.

Detect the missing information.
You can do this by checking what you have heard / seen / detected against what you have or had to ADD / make up / hallucinate, that is those certain details or CONTENT in order to make sense of what you have heard, relax, just notice the process.

As you detect the ‘deleted’ material simply ask

what or how specifically, or if you want to sound less like a robot and more like a person having a conversation find your own ways to ‘enquire about the deletions’

the Meta Model Easier Made – Part 3

It often better to relax as your learning, now, one of the easier Meta Model patterns is the ones you are already most familiar with already without knowing about the labels – they can come later on. Its know more or no less than hearing some language pattern and responding in a particular way. This pattern is particularly easy because its only about comparing and relationships. Anyway, relax a bit more and lets continue… So get it out, dust it off and lets get on with making it more easier. Perhaps you will find this particular pattern the easiest.

the Meta Model essentially does two things when used ‘as intended’

  1. It assist stuck clients to change – Therapeutic
  2. It gets high quality information – Business / Pleasure / Therapeutic

the Integrity NLP Practitioner in Newcastle naturally will cover the Meta Model and those who are on our Newcastle Hypnotherapy course certainly will leave with an even fuller knowledge of applying this process.

Its most useful if you are in any therapeutic field like the many complementary therapies or thinking of taking up your calling, you could take our Newcastle hypnotherapy course – it will make applications of your therapy easier and faster and you know a lot more about this set of verbal responses than you may currently realise.
