Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)
Guess what I just learned! NLP!
As usual, I am scattering my seeds in many directions (like a good dandelion). I just got my certificate of completion, from Dr. Yvonne (Oswald) in a class on Neuro-Linguistic Programming, better known as NLP. This is an amazing technique which helps people overcome “stuck” issues (like emotional or psychological issues, fears and limiting beliefs) in a fraction of the time it would take using other techniques and without having to relive every single, tortuous moment of what caused the reaction to the causal event.
Are You: Walking a Tightrope? Feeling Insecure? Confused?
Wondering How To Overcome Obstacles? Looking For New Direction?
You can go to a psychiatrist for twenty years, or you can take an NLP “break-through” session for 5 hours, and I’d bet you a double fudge chocolate ice cream cone that the NLP will work far better and much faster!
In order to get my certification as an NLP professional, I have to complete 30 hours of NLP practice and pass an exam. If you live near me, I’d love for you to help me by scheduling a practice session with me. My (beautiful, British, now Canadian, world-renowned) instructor assured us that people will benefit greatly, even though students are not yet fully comfortable in conducting the sessions. (In the future, I’ll be able to do it by Skype or other media, but I prefer practicing in person.) I advise you to take advantage of this opportunity; because the actual sessions are priced at $150/hour or $500 for a break-through session. For the first volunteers, I’ll give 5 hours free (the $500 value), after which I’ll charge the normal hourly rate. So, ACT NOW, as they say!
John Grinder (linguistics) and Richard Bandler (mathematics and gestalt therapy) created NLP to generate models of excellence; however, these techniques are applicable to every area of life, including, but not limited to business. Lots of information is available on the NLP founders’ website. In brief, they say that
“NLP is founded on two fundamental presuppositions:1. The Map is Not the Territory…we can never know reality. We can only know our perceptions of reality….It is generally not reality that limits us or empowers us, but rather our map of reality. 2. Life and ‘Mind’ are Systemic Processes. It is not possible to completely isolate any part of the system from the rest of the system.”
You can get much more detail on their website.
My Next Disappearing Act
Yes, I’m about to do it again, which means that my posts will continue to be “irregular,” to put it politely. Soon, I’ll be attending a certification class, so I can provide hypnosis techniques, along with the NLP, to help people overcome traumas and dramas in their lives or simply to become more successful.
If you think you’ve never meditated or been capable of being hypnotized, just think back to a time when you stared at a sunset/sunrise, or at a flickering candle flame, or at a fireplace. You were there, Baby Cakes! You were there in your Alpha brain wave state or deeper. It is so relaxing and rejuvenating! I already know how to do this, but I want to get the certification to prove it. I’ll have to pass an exam and hold practice sessions for that, too; so, stay tuned!
Why Would I Do These Things?
These are just more tools in my toolbox for being able to help people meet their own needs. Let’s explore together. Contact me with questions, or to schedule a session (still free during the practice sessions; but definitely not thereafter!)
