The Fastest Way To Create Resource States NLP

The fastest most robust way to generate resource states is using a variant of NLP Eye Movement Integration called Lazy Eights. This is a technique I have developed and find this continues to get amazing results very fast.

This clip is from an Ericksonian Clinical Hypnotherapy training I delivered in Alaska earlier this year. The process is very simple to use and is demonstrated step by step in this video.

Elements of Generative Change

An exploration of the elements of assisting clients …

The process of generative change and opening possibilities to lead an even more meaningful and purposeful life is all about making connections between a goal or outcome and the inherent values, beliefs, purposes and motivations that are driving the outcome or goal.

By abstracting or generalising the driving forces or ‘what does this actually get you’ in terms of the goal you can assist your clients in experiencing the real purpose or meaning of their goal.

Using Eye Movement Integration and Generative Change Techniques. A Brief Therapy and Solution Focused approach to working with Trauma.

Practically every change professional will work with client trauma in varying degrees. As a coach you need to have the tools to remove emotional bocks. As a therapist you will need to be able to robustly remove and dissolve client trauma. As a social worker or counsellor wouldn’t you like to help your clients quickly and safely move on from serious emotional episodes without all the pain or talking about this again and again? This is a much quicker, content free and client centred approach than CBT.

Eye Movement Integration is a very brief and content free process for resolving psychological traumas such as PTSD, intrusive memories, shame, guilt and other kinds undesirable emotional and identity imprints.

“This course offers so much even if, as I had, you’ve already learnt and used basic EMI techniques. It is exceptionally well presented and gives a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of EMI, including simple explanations of how and why it works. But in combining EMI and Time Line techniques it offers a new and extraordinarily effective procedure for the resolution of many types of symptom that can be linked to traumatic experience.” – Nick Rolfe

Most people during their life time have had experiences that have been traumatic, painful or negatively emotionally charged. These experiences, all kinds of problematic responses to past events, are all part of the rich tapestry of life and commonly know as Trauma, Grief, Guilt, PTSD, Shame. Usually the intensity of the experience fades in time and people are OK.

This is a robust process where it is absolutely unnecessary to become emotionally involved in your clients pain. This way you can run process and work rapidly towards helping your clients out of their pain whilst being compassionate.

But other times there are one, two or more memories that just seem to pop up from nowhere or surface unannounced and then all the unwanted emotional energy is there. Its painful, unpleasant and unwanted. And very often, people suffer for long periods of time, way longer than is actually necessary.

As a counsellor, therapist or anyone who is working with client trauma, you want proven and recognised ways to help your clients out of the black emotional cloud of pain and suffering as rapidly and as ecologically as possible. Your clients are typically coming to see you because they are experiencing some form of emotional pain. All of the emotional states discussed above can be successfully treated and neutralised with Eye Movement Integration.

EMI is not EMDR. You do not need to belong to an elite group or have to pay thousands of pounds to use this Brief Therapy method.

EMI is a tiny, tiny fraction of the cost of EMDR training and is applied with precision and skills by the EMI practitioner, surprisingly easy to learn and a particularly robust clinical process.

I found the material and the presentation excellent, what I have seen of the Generative Change process fills some big gaps in my conventional NLP training and the EMI allow the body mind to connect and integrate the release of emotional issues in a very clear and clean way!

EMI Background

Eye Movement Integration was developed by Steve and Connirae Andreas in America in 1989.

Watch Steve Andreas Demonstrate this process with a Vietnam Veteran.

The Neuro Linguistic Eye Accessing Model states when someone ‘thinks’, their eyes will typically move in some sequence. The sequence of unconscious eye movements will give clues and cues to how they are thinking. There is often a ‘sequence’ of eye movements ( and certain physiology ) when a person re-experiences troublesome and problematic memories.

As a person moves their eyes, their eye movement access specific brain locations and brain processing functions. Parts of the brain that are know to be active when we re-access memories overlap spatially, for example the auditory and visual cortex and as well the different processing functions integrate memory components to produce a full and integrated sensory experience of some memory.

By linking the full array of possible eye movements ( or a sub set ) when the client is associated into their undesired state, through eye movement sequences we intend to make all the clients neurological resources available to them to remove or neutralise all negatively charged emotional response to their problem emotional state.

This Trauma Resolution Workshop is an absolute must for Clinicians, Therapists, Counsellors, Hypnotherapists, Social Workers, Doctors, Nurses, Police and all People Helpers.
