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?

Inside Non Verbal Signals

He that has eyes to see and ears to hear may convince himself that no mortal can keep a secret. If his lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips; betrayal oozes out of him at every pore. – Sigmund Freud

We display the truth about ourselves in silence, we communicate with the world in just being. Freud was right in what he said but the distortion in his words speaks volumes. Milton Erickson was a master in reading people from the way they presented before any verbal exchange.

In NLP congruence is a term to describe behaviour when all systems are aligned in terms of mind,body and behaviours. Internally and externally the message transmitted is consistent. You cannot describe yourself as confident with a shaky voice and be congruent.

Watch and listen carefully for inconsistencies and the degree of consistency in all behaviours.

Here are some things to listen for:-

A change in volume
Tone
Tempo
Emphasis
Rhythm
Length of words
Sighs
Groans
Ummms
Speed
Smoothness

There is background, foreground and far background information available for self and other. What does it say about them?

Content What they say
Processing How they say it
Patterns Why they say it

Modelling Richard Bandler

About 9 years ago on a NLP modelling course near Tottenham Court Road in London. Richard Bandler, Paul Mckenna et all presented a NLP course on modelling. A lot of it was standard NLP however at one stage there was some modelling of Bobby Davro the comedian. McKenna and Breen were supposedly doing the official modelling and nothing remarkable was detailled by them.

However the next day Richard Bandler came on stage and gave a full download of what he had noticed. I wont give all the details here but one key point was that Richard had subjectively taken the position of Davro the previous evening. Davro had talked about the audiences perspective, Richard had followed him and paced each move. He had tested what was true for him in detail. It is technique for shortcutting to quick information about a subject. Matching position and physiology.

Real Life NLP

One of the issues with NLP is dealing with Real Life and the day to day issues including those in the public eye. Whilst politics is generally a personal thing, the dynamics and workings of politicians is useful territory to model. When you can watch an interview thats not rehearsed or with patsy questions then theres the feedback that can be used to develop and test your NLP skills.

For instance languaging, sensory acuity, calibration, personal strategies etc. So take Tony Blair being interviewed by Fern Britton today, not Paxman but then again he may be more easily caught offguard with a softer interviewing approach.

Here is an example of man who has shifted his ground and continues to shift to justify his position. He disassociates from the decision he took, “when you” rather than “when I”.

He is haunted by his decisions and seems he is using religion as a comfort and as a means to find some personal succour. He is sustained by his faith but then decides his faith will not help with the day to day decisions. He talks about frailty,humanity,feebleness as means of gaining strength. This presupposes he is searching for strength but is likely to feel weakened by going to war on the sketchiest of justifications.

Catholicism has become his natural home – he goes to access kinaesthetically – to deal with his feelings. An inference maybe that his faith as a structure was the basis of going into the Iraq War rather than reasoned judgement. He now promotes faith through his foundation, something he did whilst he was in power. You can argue misused power. He argues that society should be directed by its spiritual core?

God is also masculine in his model. Just watch Tony as he is questioned about the death of David Kelly -stunned and shocked!

Modelling Modelling

NLP was created out of a technology to model “Excellence”, that was the theory. Richard Bandler and John Grinder modelled some of the most skilled therapists they could find including Milton Erickson, Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir, Frank Farrelly, Gregory Bateson and others.

Much of the processes that were used remain unknown. Why? They did not have a complete technology and methodology to model their own approach. Having attended a number of the earlier NLP Master Practitioners it is clear that the modelling projects given were not supported with an integrated model to create a new model. Also the field of NLP has more or less stood still for the last 20 years with very few revisions. THe field is still reliant on those original developers to take it forward.

So for instance the thinking that created the various techniques and tools such as submodalities has not really been captured. The practise of sensory acuity on its own is not enough so what else is required?

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.
