Here as our guest blogger John tells us more about  Neuro-Lingistic Programming. 

No-one is perfect. Just like nature, we are always growing. We all have imperfections… We all have things that limit us, that stop us. Letting Go of those things that are stopping you to continue to grow, releasing and letting go of unpleasant feelings… creates space in your life. Giving you the space to do what you want to do. So you can live your life the way you want to.  

 I worked with someone who had been involved in a bike accident in Thailand. She was on the back of a bike and... well, the memory still haunted her. It was something she wanted to let go of… and this technique can help you too. She thought of the accident often. When she did, it was terrifying because she relived the memory in full vivid detail.

 In her memory she clearly saw exactly what was happening, just like the day it really did happen. It was as if she was right back there… the sounds of the tyres screeching and screams came back. And the terrifying sick feeling in the pit of her stomach. Instead, I had her think and replay it all differently… rather than being 'there’ in the memory, I had her ‘see' the bike moving with her on it.

Seeing the accident happen through this disassociated state of mind changed the way she felt about it. Rather than remembering the experience in the first person, she now saw it from a different point of view. From across the street. And she felt different. She was feeling less emotional and upset. Then I had her imagine she could see herself sat down, cross-legged watching herself on a TV screen... Seeing herself sat on the floor watching the TV with her on the bike. Seeing herself, watching herself, having an experience… from that distant view point, the bad feelings were gone!

It’s a technique from Neuro-Lingistic Programming called Double Disassociation. Not just seeing yourself, but watching yourself see yourself. And it works like magic. This simple way of changing your experience of reality is Very Effective. Perfect for letting go and achieving the change you are looking for. The technique is simple. And I want to hear about your great results with using it :)

 Don’t let its seeming simplicity fool you. Use it, try it for yourself and remember to email me and tell me all about your successes with it.

 How to..

The memory that you want to forget about… something that you want to no-longer be bothered by.

Take a moment to think about it, but this time ‘from across the street’. See yourself in the memory. And step back whilst you're in that view point back, just a bit so it’s further away.

Notice how different that makes you feel.

Then imagine that image of what you want to let go of on a TV, in the corner of a room. So that you can see the room and you are sat down in it, looking at the TV. Watching that old bad memory happening on a TV.

 Then open your eyes… and notice how different you feel now.

 If you need to, do it again on the same thing. Or do it on another event… there is no limit to the amount of times you can use this technique.

 Enjoy… and give yourself a few moments either now or make a mental note of a time to do this technique and notice how much better it makes you feel.

 *This Double Disassociation Technique is an NLP Technique... created by Dr Richard Bandler in the 1970’s.

 This Double Disassociation Techniques work very effectively. And as a gift to you, you can download a recording of this very same process as an Mp3 HERE. 

 All you have to do is sit back, close your eyes and relax as I guide you through the whole process and it is yours, enjoy :)
