NLP Anchoring and the Law of Attraction

By Jacob McDonald

What is the law of attraction and how can it be affected with NLP?

The Law of Attraction is the universal law that the focus of your thoughts becomes the reality that you are living. What you focus on is attracted to you. As one of the spokesman for the law attraction Mike Dooley states “Thoughts Become Things”. The principles of the law of attraction have been used in people’s lives all over the world to bring success, relationships, personal wealth, and white jaguars. The law of attraction, when used in a person’s life, literally makes dreams come true.

How can you begin to use the law of attraction in your own life? The law of attraction is easy to apply to your life and some might say that is seems to be too simple to work. Many people do not know that they are actively taking part in the law of attraction on a daily and moment to moment basis in their lives already. To begin to use the law of attraction you may use the following steps.

1. Clearly in your mind think of what it is that you want to attract into your life be it a new home, a car, a specific relationship or personal wealth.

2. State to yourself that you have the thing that you are attracting now.

3. Next, take 5 – 10 minutes each day and visualize yourself with the attracted thing, or event as if it were happening now. Feel the feelings and see the things that are congruent to having your dream now.

4. Continue this exercise once a day and allow your unconscious mind and the universe to align their selves with your will.

To clarify some of this process I will explain some of the steps in greater detail. When you are deciding what you are going to manifest into your life be very specific. Make sure when you are stating what you are attracting to yourself that you state it in the positive. If you have bills racking up do not focus on not having bills, focus and state that you have abundance and in this case be specific about how much abundance you are looking for.

When you visualize your wish happening in the present, make it so vivid to yourself that you can feel the excitement and gratitude of having this thing now. Make a note to include yourself in your visualization. If you are in want of a new car, see yourself in the car; see your hands on the steering wheel of this car. It is important to see yourself in the vision so that your unconscious mind and the universe understand you are not merely attracting seeing this new vehicle, but that you are indeed driving and have ownership of this new amazing dream. Your unconscious mind does not know the difference between what is visualized and what is actually seen. The results of this are that your unconscious mind will begin to make adjustments in yourself to make your focus your reality.

Be encouraged as you progress with this process that as you remain focused on your goal, it will come about. Continue to visualize everyday even though it may appear the results are not happening as quickly as you would like.

NLP can accelerate the law of attraction

To Reiterate; the key points of the law of attraction are to feel the intensity of the feelings that accompany you having your dream and secondly to vividly visualize your dream as a current reality.

For the first and most important aspect of the law of attraction, which is to feel the emotions and feelings of this new reality coming to pass, a powerful NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming technique can be used called anchoring. Anchoring in short, is attaching a neurological response to an external stimulation. An example of this is when you are in love with someone and you see their number form onto your caller you may notice your heart begin to race before you even answer the phone. Another example of an anchor that is used powerfully in marketing is through the use of music. You may feel a certain emotion when listening to specific songs. In recent car commercials I have seen the use of a variety of popular songs from the 70’s. These songs are used knowing that the target audience has an emotional response to them. The principle behind this is to attach the summer fun you felt in the 70’s to the fun you can feel in this new vehicle.

Now that you have an understanding of an anchor as an external stimulation that triggers an internal state I will explain how this can be used to enhance the process of actively attracting things and events into your life. Anchoring can be effectively used to trigger the states of excitement and joy as you want to apply to your dream and its fulfillment. In the event of your visualization you will now be able to trigger the powerful emotions that are the driving force of creating reality.

How do you go about making an anchor? There are many ways to make an anchor; I will layout several strategies to follow and you can choose the one that best works for you. First off what you are looking for in a reality creating state is: gratitude, joy, excitement and ecstasy. These are a great place to start to show your unconscious mind and the universe that this is something that you really want.

One method you can use to gain immediate access to these states is through music.

1. Find a piece of music that you particularly like, a piece of music you have access to every day is obviously preferred.

2. Now that you have your piece of music ready to play, put it on repeat if possible and begin to play the music.

3. As the music is playing what you are going to do is begin to allow yourself to experience some powerful memories.

You will think of a time when you felt gratitude for any reason. See yourself in that very moment, seeing what you saw and feeling what you felt. Make sure that you relive these memories in the clearest way you possibly can. At the moment you feel the feeling intensely immediately shift your attention to the next memory you will be using. Now find memories for each of the feelings you will be anchoring including: joy, excitement, and ecstasy

4. When you have relived several memories and felt the multiple feelings you are looking for you can turn off the music.

5. Now that the music is off, you need to forget about the whole experience and think of something else, such as what your address is, what your mother’s maiden name is, and what the model of your first car was.

6. Now it is time to test the anchor. To test an anchor it is very simple, all you need to do is introduce the stimulation again. In this case turn your song on again, and notice that you can feel the feelings of Gratitude, joy ect…

7. If you do not feel the feelings as intensely as you would like replay the song again as many times as you wish and attach as many powerful memories as you want. You may find yourself having a whole lot of fun doing this because you will start to remember things you haven’t thought of in a long time, think of the things that bring a smile to your face and a warmth in your heart.

Another method to anchor emotional states is by physical touch. This is my personal favorite when working with another person because it is more intimate and I feel more of a connection between us as we are working together to overcome specific problems or bringing out desired emotional states. This method is also powerful when doing this work on your own.

1. First you are going to choose a place on your body that you will touch with a light to medium pressure. (Note: I would recommend an area on your knee for this technique. A key point to take into consideration is to touch the same place with each emotion and to apply the same pressure each time. Many people ask if it has to be exactly the same place with exactly the same pressure. In response to this, be as close with both location and pressure as you possibly can. Do this technique to the best of your ability and you will see beautiful results.)

2. Allow yourself to experience some powerful memories. Just as stated in the third point to the auditory anchor you will clearly remember a time for each emotional state.

3. When you feel the emotion begin to build get ready to touch the area you have chosen, but be aware of your timing. Touch the area at the moment the emotion is the strongest. You will notice you can feel the emotions more intensely by increasing the details of the memory you are replaying. Hold the pressure at that area for a brief moment, 1 – 2 seconds will be perfect.

4. After you have anchored one state follow this up with thinking of some information like what did you have for breakfast, or how much did you save on your car insurance?

5. Now repeat the process for each emotional state that you are anchoring.

6. When you have anchored all of the states clear your mind and think of something like; when was the last time you went out to dinner?

7. Now test the anchor by touching yourself in the same place with the same pressure. You will feel the emotions flood in, and you may experience some of the memories after firing the anchor off.

There is a way to create an anchor using an image of any sort. To do this follow the last procedure for creating a physical body anchor, but instead of touching yourself look at an image at the peak of the feeling. You can do this with an image on your computer, a poster, a figurine or a flash card that you have or that you will construct.

Now that you have this powerful anchor you may use it to accelerate the law of attraction in your life. To do this, follow the law of attraction process, and during your 5 – 10 minute visualization period you can create the emotional state needed to cause your unconscious mind and the universe to respond by firing off your anchor. You can take this a step farther and also fire off the anchor when you are thinking of this process working in your life. You will have a twofold effect of not only attracting your dreams into your life using strong positive feelings, but you can also increase the speed of this process by attracting the success of your use of the law of attraction by using the strong feelings on your thoughts of it working.

This anchoring technique is a very powerful way to access any desired emotional state. You can use this very technique to anchor any emotional state to a song, an image, or a touch. If there is a time when you think a specific emotional state would be desired you can use anchoring to do this.

Enjoy this amazing technology and watch your life transform into your wildest dreams!

Nlp Can Help Overcome Postpartum and Perinatal Feelings of Dispair

Author: Alan B. Densky, CH

Everyone experiences moments of sadness. In most cases, these times last for only hours or days. Nearly twenty percent of the world’s population, however, are diagnosed with major depression, which causes depression that lasts for weeks, months, or longer. These moods cause the person to develop problems functioning in work, family, or social relationships, which can become disabling.

Females who experience signs of depression after they become pregnant may be treated for perinatal depression. This illness can develop any time after pregnancy begins, or any time thereafter, until the baby is a year old. Most commonly, however, women who encounter this illness after the child is born are diagnosed with postpartum depression.

Perinatal depression or postpartum depression results from several factors. These factors can be physiological. For instance, women with a personal or familial history of major depression or other mental health problems are very likely to experience perinatal depression or postpartum depression. Furthermore, hormonal changes in postpartum mothers, such as decreases in estrogen and progesterone amounts, can precipitate this condition. After childbirth, thyroid problems can cause symptoms of depression such as exhaustion, irritability, and despair.

At times, mental depression results from psychological factors. Women often feel fatigued and stressed in learning to manage the needs of the new family member. These feelings are sometimes magnified by a lack of support from family, friends, or significant other. Financial problems can also assist in causing postpartum depression.

Perinatal depression and postpartum depression often have serious results for both the mother and her new child. Worry and depression can prevent a mother from bonding fully with her infant or being capable of meeting her child’s physiological and psychological requirements. This can further compound the woman’s sense of worthlessness, guilt, and low self-worth.

The baby is also affected by the new mother’s issues. Failure to bond with his or her mom can result in the child to develop trust problems in emotional relationships throughout life. In addition, children who do not have their physiological or psychological requirements met often do not grow and develop properly. This condition, known as “failure to thrive,” can be quite harmful or even deadly to the baby.

Perinatal depression or postpartum depression can damage the entire family. The spouse or significant other may feel ignored or powerless to decrease these depression symptoms. This can irreparably wound the partnership. Other children in the family often have similar emotions, and develop academic or peer problems as well.

Depression harms the whole family. For this reason, women who develop perinatal depression or postpartum depression ought to get depression treatment as soon as possible. Several treatments are available, including counseling and medication treatments. Medications, however, are often dangerous for nursing babies, and may yield unpredictable results due to the wide hormonal fluctuations a woman has during these hectic times. Moreover, typical counseling approaches can be lengthy and expensive.

Two techniques for dealing with depression that do not use medicines and often quickly demonstrate dramatically effective results are hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP. Traditional Hypnotherapy is most effective for clients who are effortlessly entranced or able to accept ideas without feeling a need to critique or understand them. Ericksonian hypnosis is very effective for people who tend to overanalyze. These approaches aid individuals to relax and get rid of stress.

For persons who tend to be more critical or analytical individuals, NLP is usually more effective. With this technique, trained professionals give clients depression help by coaching them to restructure their thought processes. This strategy can, very literally, assist a person think past the depressive state and overcome it.

Individuals can overcome depression by developing NLP tools such as anchoring. They are coached to remember moments when they felt happy and in control of their situations. Recalling the memory renews these emotions. Clients are coached to put two fingers together while experiencing these feelings. The unconscious mind connects the touch of the two fingers with the emotions. Thus, the finger touch becomes an “anchor.”

Then, if the person begins to feel stressed, he or she triggers the anchor by touching these identical two fingers together again. This brings back emotions of self-control and creates empowerment.

By using another approach known as the Flash, individuals discover how to think away harmful feelings. They program their unconscious minds to automatically exchange positive thoughts for negative ones. As negative thoughts arise, the mind automatically exchanges them for positive thoughts. After learning this strategy, individuals find it almost impossible to conjure up negative thoughts!

Summary: Perinatal depression and postpartum depression often have harmful results for a mother and her new infant. The remainder of the family is also deeply affected by these conditions. Due to the potential severity of the results of this illness, new mothers with depression ought to get treatment as soon as symptoms begin. Two very effective strategies that do not require medication or great outlays of time and financial resources are hypnosis and NLP.

Weightloss With NLP

Posted by on Aug 12, 2009 in Hypnosis, NLP Singapore, NLP Success & Life Tips | 0 comments

Weightloss With NLP

Author: Karen Hastings, Hertfordshire

NLP can be useful for people struggling to lose weight. In fact, wanting to lose weight is a fairly common reason for why people seek NLP, Herts. Whilst NLP is by no means a magic diet pill, it can be very useful in addressing the issues associated with over-eating such as confidence, self-esteem, motivation and negative coping strategies. This article discusses seven NLP tools, which can help you in being slim and healthy.

1. NLP Communication Model – This model underlies any change work in NLP and a good therapist will explain this model to you. It is very important as it tells us how people use language in specific patterns, during thinking. Depending on the nature of the way you talk to yourself when thinking, you could be undermining the efforts you make to eat healthily and be slim. The NLP communication model can help you to begin to be much more aware of the language you use during thinking, in order that you can develop positive thinking habits. Since how you think has a massive effect on how you feel, it also effects how you behave. Change your thinking patterns and you will get different behavioural results. In the case of weight loss, this can be a change in your eating or exercise habits.

2. NLP Presuppositions – These are a set of convenient beliefs which if you subscribe to them, can lead to you feeling much more empowered. For example, one of the presuppositions is that all behaviour has a positive intention. This does not mean that everything a person does it morally good or good for society. It means that each person, only always carry out behaviours that are positive for them in some way, i.e. meet some higher human need. So, if you feel frustrated at yourself for overeating when you feel you really shouldn’t, its time to begin to think about what needs you meet through food. Only, then can you acknowledge that you have been doing the best with the resources available to you at the time and begin to plan how to meet the need met by food in a more positive way.

3. NLP Frame – Cause is greater then effect. NLP frames are frames of reference that guide the individual towards taking responsibility for themselves, how they feel and what happens in their lives. During NLP therapy you will be encouraged to BE at CAUSE. This means that things happen in your life because of you, not too you. NLP does not claim this to always be the case, it asks you to try to live your life guided by the frames. Being at cause means you get the credit for all the great things you achieve, of course, it also means that you have to take responsibility for outcomes that your not so proud of. How does this relate to dieting? Well as a person who used to smoke and who tried to stop for several years before I was successful, I know that I felt much more comfortable about lighting up, if I had a reason (excuse). So, it was the fault of my stressful day, argument with boyfriend, because I’d had a glass of wine, because I needed to relax and not because I was choosing to smoke over other behavioural options. This can be the case, with bingeing or snacking. Once you begin to stop kidding yourself during thinking and actually begin to stop and say, actually I don’t have to eat this, I can act in a different way, I take responsibility, you have taken a big step towards the slimmer you.

4. NLP Formal Change Techniques – There are several formal change techniques, which are useful for helping with weight-loss. The most appropriate technique will depend on your unique problem. Here are a few: 1) The Swish Technique can be used if you wish to replace a highly contextualised problem behaviour with a more positive behaviour. It works to eliminate behaviours that occur in specific situations after specific triggers. 2) Parts Integration is very useful at uncovering the positive intention of your unhelpful eating habits and dealing with incongruent behaviour and feelings. If you’ve had the experience of thinking ‘how have I just eaten that, I’ve been doing so well’, this technique could help you! 3) Like To Dislike – This technique is based on information about how we code memories in our brain. We tend to code things we like in a different way to things we don’t like. So, if you have a particularly problematic food type, its possible to change the memory of the problematic food type into the memory of a food you can’t stand. This technique works really well if you have a food that you really hate! 4) Hypnosis with positive suggestion – many NLP therapists will have studied hypnotic techniques based on the Ericksonian model, during NLP training and will utilise these techniques during therapy sessions.

5. Getting Leverage – NLP therapists are skilled at getting leverage. This basically means helping the client to recognise and experience the impact of the problem behaviour, such as overeating, on themselves and those around them. It will help you find your motivation and will identify those who are not motivated.

6. Setting Well Formed Goals. NLP takes goals setting seriously and has developed criteria for goal setting that results in the goals being much more achievable and likely to be reached. Your therapist can support you in working towards your weight loss goals.

7. Developing Positive Coping Strategies. Acknowledge that your problematic eating has served a purpose in the past, in that it has likely been a method for coping. Now you want to develop positive coping strategies that serve you in the present and future. When would now be the right time to be good to yourself?

These are just a few of the ways that NLP can help you develop new options in thinking and behaviour. I have found these techniques effective during NLP, Herts at my NLP practice, Herts, when supporting clients in losing weight.

Anthony Robbins NLP

Posted by on Aug 9, 2009 in Hypnosis, Inspirational Stories, NLP Introduction, NLP Singapore, NLP Success & Life Tips, Self Improvement | 0 comments

Anthony Robbins NLP

By Chris Dreyer

Anthony Robbins is born Anthony J. Mahavick in February 29, 1960. Self-help writer, professional speaker and occasional actor are just some of the qualifications under his belt. With his best-selling books, he managed to touch and changed numerous lives, introducing the science behind the sense personal awareness. Robbins is known as a writer of topics that focuses on health and energy, overcoming fears, the power of effective persuasive communication and relationships. Through his numerous infomercials, he has become a worldwide phenomenon, promoting personal development with his audio programs and motivational seminars. He primarily makes use of neuro-linguistic programming or NLP and various hypnosis techniques in his claims of personal awareness. A good communicator, speaker, healer and life coach, Robbins combines his skills with unconventional and conventional persuasive techniques to promote personal change.

With only high school education in tow, Robbins have managed to create an empire with his gift of better understanding of life and human nature in combination with his excellent communication skills. His first vocation, being in sales, was his initial practice of his inherent knowledge of persuasion. His fondness for personal growth books only helped him develop and refine is remarkable ability to promote positivity and confidence from among his listeners and readers. In 1983, Robbins was have grown interest in NLP, a then new and promising technique that is claimed to be effective in promoting instant and positive transformation by directly altering the unconscious “programs” of the human mind.

Robbins has started practicing NLP in his career after learning its principles directly from its co-founder, John Grinder. Working with the perception that human capabilities is relative to his self-awareness, such principles have significantly helped him refine his thoughts, which eventually has catapulted his career and popularity. As one of the practices of NLP, Grinder has convinced Robbins to look into firewalking. From the principles of NLP, Robbins has later on introduced NAC or Neuro-Associative Conditioning, making use of the term conditioning rather than programming. He claims that “conditioning” implies that the subject has a greater responsibility for his or her own change while “programming” accounts the change to someone else.

Robbins was drawn into the principles that NLP entails since it very much applicable in his practice of promoting self-help. He then took the principles of NLP in his series of television and radio programs, which have significantly helped NLP be widely accepted by the public. Understandably, Robbins had faced the lashing words of skeptics. In response, having witnessed the dramatic change that NLP has brought in improving the way his supporters lived their lives, he publicly challenged his critic psychiatrists to work with their toughest patients or case in front of live audience. In the said program, Robbins has cured a woman of her phobia of snakes, a case that were handled by a professional psychiatrist for years. What’s amazing is that he had cured the woman in only fifteen minutes. From then on, the public has grown interest in his seminars, books and whatever he is working on.

The Importance of Self-Belief

Author: Roseanna Leaton

It is difficult to measure the effect of your own individual self-belief. After all, you only know for sure what you have or have not achieved and cannot prove to yourself how much more you might have achieved if you were more confident. It is only when you look at the human race as a group and you begin to question and compare the impact of various traits that the value of self-confidence can be so easily identified.

It has been noted and proven time and again that your level of self-belief does indeed prove to be a good predictor of success and achievement in many different areas of your life. If only self-confidence was a class taught in schools; it would indeed become the most important class of all. Why is it not taught, when everyone agrees as to the vital impact of confidence in one’s life?

I believe that the answer to this question lies primarily in that no one can agree on HOW confidence can be taught. Confidence is not a tangible thing in the sense of making 1 + 1 = 2 or knowing how to spell correctly. Rather it is an emotion; it is a feeling. This is what makes so many people shy away from the thought that confidence can be taught, or learned through teaching. Instead, there is a communal belief which indicates that you either have confidence or you do not, and that is “how it is”.

But I fear that this is a cop-out. The effect of having confidence or a lack of confidence IS tangible; you can feel it, you can hear it in one’s tonality and see it in one’s posture…and you can all but taste it as well. Confidence is a real live, living, breathing, tangible thing. The very thing which prevents you from gaining confidence is the belief that “this is how you are” and that that’s all there is to it.

It is high time to take a step back and view confidence and lack of confidence from a different angle. Do you agree that confidence or lack of it is directly related to the experiences in one’s life? Very few people would disagree with this statement. The thing is that once you appreciate that how you experience something is dependent upon your perception of that something, then you begin to realize that you can begin to change.

Your perceptions of the world around you and your expectations about what might happen all come from within; they come from your own inner mind. You can access the inner workings of your mind simply by choosing to learn hypnosis. You can learn to use hypnosis with the help of hypnosis downloads. It’s easy. Hypnosis is normal and natural, and allows you to access your subconscious mind.

Once you have access to your subconscious mind with the help of hypnosis, you can then place suggestions in your mind to build your confidence, to build your self-esteem, to build your self-worth. Hypnosis is another subject which should be taught in schools; it is the most enabling and empowering state of mind and it is totally natural. Once again I fear that the reason it is not taught (in general) is because it is misunderstood; hypnosis, like confidence, is perceived (incorrectly) as intangible. It is not perceived as something which easily complies with the ticking of boxes.

It is ironic that both confidence and hypnosis can be taught, and can be measured (if one tries to do so). Both are indeed far more quantifiable than you may at first expect. We should all give thanks to people such as Richard Bandler and Paul McKenna who have identified ways to de-mystify hypnosis and also to give hypnosis and NLP structure and methodology. Even the most analytical of thinkers would find it hard to question the value of hypnosis is this day and age, as scientific research time and again proves its effectiveness in so many areas of our lives.
