Im dreaming of a Binge Christmas!

Judging by talking to various people in the preparation for Xmas it is really easy to overeat, overbuy and overdo it generally. So what might help in terms of a strategy for control the binge in Christmas spending. The pressure and contagion that surrounds this period is really easy to get caught up in.

So using a DBM model (Developmental Behaviourial Modelling- a mouthful I know) here is a simple process to curb the festive indulgence:-

1. Do I like …………………?
2. Do I want………………..?
3. Do I need ……………..?
4. Do I really need ………?
5. How do you know you really need it?


1. Do they like …………………?
2. Do they want………………..?
3. Do they need ……………..?
4. Do they really need ………?
5. How do you know they really need it?

The sequence is important, the reverse pattern is for using in a sales pitch to chain the customer from a need to a like. Try it see how much you save !

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

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.
