The Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP says that people are only able to see the world biased to their feelings and notions. It further states that their perception of the world is in fact, not the reality, but a refined version based on their values, beliefs, experiences, and other factors. Use of NLP techniques can help you grow in areas of your life and help to aid your understand the functioning of people around you.
Here are some of them which you can practice for controlling your life and mind.
The NLP method of anchoring is essential to bring out a specific emotion or to put yourself in a particular mindset. You can use it on yourself or another person. It works by linking an emotion with physical activity. This linking is called laying the anchor.
2. Meta Model
The NLP techniques of meta-model may help you understand the various problems of other people. Also, you can use it to help others better understand their issues. The goal is to breakdown the conversation, to find the problem’s cause, as well as its solution also.
Most likely, when one is in problem, they also know the answer in their subconscious minds, but often, the clear solution is something they don’t prefer. This un-decisiveness causes the problem to grow, hoping that a new preferable solution will come up. By analyzing the way someone words their problem, you can help them find a solution.
Mirroring is one of the essential NLP techniques you should remember. A proper mirroring technique will be handy as it’s hard to dislike someone who has the same qualities. It is the copying of behaviors of the person while you communicate with them. This act is done subtly and unconsciously in general.
You can do this by mimicking someone’s speech, body language, vocabulary, tempo, pitch, tone, and volume are some ways to do this.
The framing NLP techniques help you enhance or reduce the impact of emotions. It is an excellent method to use in parallel with other methods.
In life, you are bound to experience ups and downs. These help you learn and progress in life. Emotions, however, do not have memories attached to them. This disconnect is because memories and emotions happen in separate sections of the brain. So at one time, you will encounter feelings, and then you can recall them.
5. Pattern Interruption
Pattern interruption helps you store words into the subconscious mind of a person whom you’re talking. This technique is another one that effortlessly combines with others.
It would be best if you lured the thoughts of the listener into a pattern or sequence. Once the mold takes shape, you pull them out of the model for a decisive moment before finishing the thing. The listener’s subconscious mind will be expecting the pattern to arrive while the conscious mind is distracted.
