Let me make it simple...
NLP is a pragmatic school of thought (called an "epistemology")
It is a multi-dimensional process that involves the development
of behavioral competency and flexibility.
In Neuro-linguistics, the person with the greatest flexibility has the best advantage.
This is also true in Mediation
It involves Strategic Thinking and an understanding of
the mental and cognitive processes behind the behavior.
And once again, you understand that the "map" you have created
May have similarities to the one your domestication has built in your mind,
But just like a GPS, it represents a one level view of a 3-dimensional space-
"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change."
Wayne Dyer, M.D.
So, what can Neurolinguistics do for you?
When we live our lives by "scripts" we create,
we oft times distort our Reality.
Neurolinguistics is an understanding
not of the brain
but of how the mind, using the brain
expresses itself in your life and
creates what you call your "experience"."
Thus you see, our brain creates a "map"
The main source of misunderstanding
is the difference in their perspective.
But it really takes understanding,
a bit of training & a great deal of practice
to "translate" perceptions into
different people's sense of "reality"
Now you will understand why given the gift of Empathy
and all the advanced training I have had in understanding
how and why the brain works as it does.
I can teach one to strategically think and understand what baggage they carry
from this lifetime or one of hundreds-even, thousands of human experiences before.
It's really pretty simple.
Every thing-every person-every experience
we encounter in the course of our lives
writes a "script"
a kind of "game plan" of how we view the world
this is what we call our "perspective"
Having spent many years,
first as a Relationship Therapist...
then as a Life and Relationship Coach,
and ultimately incorporating being
an Advanced Family Mediator,
incorporating Neurolinguistics into my work
was the "thread" that pulled it all together.
it became fundamentally clear
that in order to help people understand themselves
and understand the people in their lives
and the world they interacted with,
a basic process had to take place.
No one and I DO mean, no one,
can be harder to oneself than "us"
trouble being that we have to be so careful...
It's such an intricate practice, yet it is quite simple to understand
(it really is)
The mind (neuro) and language (linguistics) and how their interplay with one another
affects our bodies and behavior
In simpler words"programming" just means human domestication
which determines the "models" that we build in our minds
of our perceptions of the world we create.
