Internalisation of……

The internalisation of experience is a key question in NLP and DBM

Internalisation of Pain
Internalisation of Success
Internalisation of Trauma
Internalisation of Significant events
Internalisation of Injury
Internalisation Spiritually

The subjectification of experience is a whole book in itself. NLP makes some attempt to model this through the use of submodalities and internal strategies. THis only covers a part of the process and does not explain the reasons as to why some humans internalise and others keep the experience objective (outside of themselves).

The experience can be something as simple as a theme tune or a personal calendar. To others it can be a personal trauma or significant event of meaning. The little girl who is congratulated by a teacher in such a way she can go searching for similar experiences for the rest of her life.

A rape victim can feel sullied by an experience and unable to connect again intimately with a lover.

We spend a great deal of lives as learners and students trying to internalise certain key leanings, even on occasions getting assistance from teachers (useful and less so ) to internalise various pieces of learning. Then there is a difference between basic information and pure experience.

So how do we internalise more usefully rather than take on the shit and discard the great stuff?

One key aspect is awareness and being sensitive to the internal impact of experience. How does it manifect, how often, how imposing, how useful, how much learning have I taken from this?

Is the internal representation a balanced example of the experience.
Positive, Negative, Neutral, Neutral.

What is the predominant aspect of the experience itself and the structure of that experience? It it a replay, a characature, a cartoon, a photo, continuous play etc.

What do you notice in terms of your feelings and evaluation of the experience?

Modelling Richard Bandler 2

So what else was present in Richards modelling on that day

1) He paid close attention (acuity) towards the gestures of the subject.Evidenced in the feedback and reference to it.

2) All information provided was useful in terms of modelling and noticing patterns, not just the immediate skill set that is being modelled.

3) Richard was switched on to patterns in terms of the structure oh how Bobby Davro presented about what he really wanted to do with his life.

4) Richard switched into the level of congruence of the subject, notice for meaning and what matters. Richard makes connections between the language used and physiology.

5) Richard not caught up in personal content of Bobby but more around the structure and patterns

6) Fast distillation of modelling content. Rapid output from Richard with the minimum amount of detail to support but valid evidence nonetheless.

7) Richard working within the modelled subject and I would hypothesize alongside the subject

Modelling Live

I have just returned from The Emotrance Conference at Gatwick. It was really interesting. I was presenting on energy hypnosis for healers. A touch of mesmerism. What a nice group of people attended who had a great time, learning new energetic patterns and change techniques.

One of the most interesting things although there were many was a piece of modelling done in the moment by Silvia Hartmann. THe Eucharist pattern was created from one of the partcipant’s feedback during an exercise. How to find the sacred or key source in a simple everyday activity. ” What is the real need being fulfilled in having a cup of coffee, what is the ultimate individual motive for choosing a particular item or activity. What are you really going for?
A continental chocolate may represent a Eucharist as for one participant on the workshop.

Silvia has a knack of quickly calculating and identifying core patterns in listening to people.

It strikes me in this day and age we move away from meaning or our real needs and towards faster, cheaper and instant. Just look at the fashion with food and its availability.

Can you identify effective modellers in any field? Who can calculate patterns from human behaviour?

Making Money with NLP

In these difficult times, with recession, depression, slump and credit crunch and if we keep going, we can create such a negative sliding anchor, we could finish in a state of doom. This would not be useful , and in spite of the mass hypnosis provided by the media and politicians. We can create our own useful internal states using NLP.

I was thinking, what will be useful to generate to inoculate against any immanent financial problems. One thing is absolutely clear is that people are behaving generally from a position and state of fear, fear of scarcity, fear of uncertainty and fear of poverty. How would it be if you had nothing to fear, which you have not, unless you follow the crowd.

Just imagine yourself as a person full of abundant ideas and solutions, what does I feel like. Go back and find the time, where you were really creative, able to solve things, get things done. Provide value to your clients and customers. Really associate with that sense of abundance, notice where the feeling starts then where goes to, then loop it round, keep it spinning and keep it looping until it really intensifies. Then once it is strong enough, project it out into your future, project it out strongly, notice how it changes your plans and your sense of the future. Keep it going, stay connected. Start generating ideas.

Amplyfying States through Language

Posted in Hypnosis, nlp, NLP Language, NLP Making Money, NLP Patterns & Techniques, NLP Talk with tags , , , , , , on February 24, 2009 by nlpwithed

The accessing of certain states through anchoring is well known ground on an NLP practitioner training.

Anchoring is the process of associating an internal response with some external trigger so that the response may be quickly, and sometimes covertly, re-accessed.

Anchoring can be

– visual (as with specific facial expressions),

– auditory (by using specific words and voice tone),

– and kinaesthetic (as when touching an arm or hand etc.)


Criteria for anchoring:

a) intensity or purity of experience;

b) timing; at peak of experience;

c) accuracy of replication of anchor.


Commands and suggestions such as:

– can you remember a time when  …

– or imagine a time …

– or have you ever felt …

… and just think of the time when you felt total pleasure.

Basically using this type of language structure we are seeking to get the person to associate with a full experience of that emotion.

If the practitioner accesses that emotion first then increases the likelihood the subject will too, particularly if the two are in rapport.

The degree of association will influence the full intensity experience by the person.

So commands like “imagine you are right back then now, right back in there experience seeing what you saw, hearing what you heard, feeling how you felt” will increase the association further. This is the direct approach, I will return to an indirect approach in another article.

When we talk about amplifying a state, we are referring to increasing the intensity of the experience.

We can directly amplify the submodalities of the internal experience – eg. increase the size of the picture, up the volume of the sound.

We can amplify through our gestures playing with the internal qualities physically treating it as real.

We can use adverbs to our language, which can be very slick if combined with known content, just as descriptive as a novel building the image and full experience.

Likewise we can reduce the intensity just watch the unwanted memory fade in the background and become a distant forgotten wispy dream.
