What is the single most important aspect of physiology and why NLP works to change your mind | NLP is Fun

What is the single most important aspect of physiology and why Neuro linguistic programming works to change your mind.

Did you know the single most import aspect of physiology and more importantly a physiological shift is to change your breathing.

To change your breathing, instantly changes your physiological state. If you do not believe me, just take a deep breath now.
If you would like to enhance this do more breaths, breathe more slowly, and notice what happens.

When you shift your breathing pattern, you literally shift your physiological state of being. 

What is the single most important aspect of physiology and why NLP works to change your mind | NLP is Fun

Changing your breathing pattern changes how you feel, here is another example: Think of something that really scares you, now notice your breathing. Did your breathing change? 

All of the exercises that we call patterns in NLP are designed to shift your state from Present state to a desired state. 

Why NLP works to change your mind

Now there are other things you can do to make it even better. Let's talk about using Neuro linguistic programming to change your physiology and why it works.

Your mind and body are a Cybernetic loop. Use your mind to think and you will feel. Change your breathing and you will regulate how you feel unconsciously.

So, this being agreed, to take it a step further you are the sum total of what you are thinking and how this makes you feel.

Your mind and body are an interchangeable unit.

The sounds and pictures are creating stories in your mind and your body is demonstrating how this is making you feel.

In Neuro linguistic programming we call these Internal representations. How you are representing reality internally (Inside your mind).

Also, as you exercise and or use exercise as part of your well-being on a daily basis, it will become easier to manage your emotions. Exercise can change brain chemistry in such a way that you notice great feelings very quickly.

Simply standing up, sitting up, and or jumping are examples of changing your physiology and shifts your consciousness which changes your mind.

We may have been told it has to be hard or strenuous exercise that does this although as we have discovered simply breathing is physical and also changes our psychology. 
Think of meditation for example, many who practice meditation feel feelings of peace and wellbeing in their body.

An example of combining movement and breath is Yoga. In NLP we combine breathing and using the sensory awareness of the mind to create altered states of consciousness that we call mental drills.

This is why NLP works to change your mind literally.

We pay attention to details of experience while relaxing and modifying how we notice we are feeling using our mind.

The best way to manage our emotions when things get tricky is to relax. All relaxation is done by slowing down our breathing.

We may want to create a feeling of anticipation, and this will be done by spinning our feelings in combination with using sensory awareness internally and this will change our breathing also.

One of the single more important aspects of noticing a physiological shift is to watch a person's breathing rate change. We will calibrate this in our communication to understand how a person is receiving our communication and if we are in rapport with them.

When we are in rapport you may notice we will breathe at the same tempo. As a Trainer of Neuro linguistic programming when I am speaking to a large group of people, I will set the tone by creating a pattern of breathing so we can all become harmonized and in good energy.  Good rapport feels like good energy and can be seen in body matching, breathing matching, heart rate matching to name a few.

Next time you want to change your move just decide to shift, change your breathing, perhaps sit upright, look up, get outside, change your position and use your mind to move the problem behind you just to go a step further.

Consider the power of how changing your breathing changes your mind, let me know how this works for you and while you are here be sure to enjoy some of the other posts on various other topics about Neuro linguistic programming.



Can NLP cure Anxiety | NLP is Fun

 Can Neuro linguistic programming cure anxiety 

Neuro linguistic programming improves the way that we relate to ourselves. In doing so recovering an impoverished emotional experience.

By Impoverished, I mean not having the best experience in any given situation. NLP is the art of improving a person's internal sensory awareness to create a more optimized experience.

Perhaps we can consider what happens to a person who has anxiety asking them to describe the experience that they are having.

Can NLP cure Anxiety | NLP is Fun 

It is more likely an NLP Practitioner would ask a person to describe how they are feeling at the moment and what they perceive to be the problem they need help with. The NLP Practitioner will then lead them into an internal discovery of how they are creating the state of consciousness they are currently experiencing.

If the person says "I notice myself breathing rapidly and my heart rate is faster than usual and also I am seeing pictures of something devastating happening, I am saying something that makes me even more afraid" etc.

Now the NLP Practitioner has something to work with and will take a client through a series of NLP patterns that transform this experience at present time to something better in the future if it were to arise again.
There will be several tests the Practitioner performs with the client to notice what happens until it seems to be resolved.

One thing to consider is that NLP is not therapy and for that reason is not a cure for any type of disorder including Anxiety which may have been diagnosed by a medical or psychiatric professional.

NLP is Not Therapy and is interested in how this behavior is being constructed

Neuro linguistic programming is more interested in how behavior is created, how it is constructed within each client than considering behavior to be a static state of being.

NLP was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder who studied Gestalt therapy at length as well as the work and patterns of famed family therapist Virginia Satire and Dr Milton Erickson.

If a person had been diagnosed with Anxiety, they will find numerous patterns that will help soothe and transform a state of anxiety physiologically very quickly.

The idea of a cure of anything implies linguistically a problem, and Neuro linguistic programming considers the value of creating a state of enhanced performance within every context.

NLP can help to ease sensations of anxiety, and this has been documented by Steve Andreas who was licensed therapist as well as a leading contributor to the field of NLP . Here are a few videos demonstrating his excellent work that can be found on You tube.

Remember NLP does not ever attempt to be a substitute for any medical diagnosis perhaps more of an ally and I am not a Medical dr or a psychiatrist.

If you find this to be helpful, please drop a note of what you have done and how this is working for you, to your health.

What is NLP in simple words | NLP is Fun

What is Neuro linguistic programming in simple words

In simple words Neuro linguistic programming is the study of subjective experience. To be more specific I will give a little more information.

What is NLP in simple words | NLP is Fun

The Definition is Neuro linguistic programming allow me to break up these words to give you a foundation.

Neuro = Represents sensory awareness which is categorized by the following:

Visual = What you can see 
Auditary = What you can hear 
Kinesthetic = What you can feel
Olfactory / Gustatory = What you can smell and taste
This is the basis of a person's internal representations which means how a person perceives their own reality.

Neuro linguistic programmers believe that reality is different in every single person demonstrated by how they put their senses together to make their own pictures of what is happening, what has happened and what will happen.

Linguistic = How people use language to explain their Model of the world / How they use language to code their reality and how we as Neuro linguistic programmers use language to improve their reality.

There are three Language patterns in particular used in Neuro Linguistic programming one is called the Meta model which is a model used within a therapeutic context.

The second Language pattern is called the Milton Model which is a model for Hypnotic suggestion.
The Third Language pattern is Sleight of Mouth which is used to change beliefs within any context.

Programming = To Reframe a context that is no longer useful to the operator / client who comes for a change

What is Neuro linguistic programming in simple words | #NadiaNLP

Neuro linguistic programmers use language skillfully to create a lasting change for a client.
This can be through using an NLP pattern that creates the element of choice for an undesirable habit or challenge.

Many of these patterns create relief to the clients who come to NLP Practitioners for change work or NLP Coaching sessions. 

To Summarize the techniques a Neuro linguistic programmer uses are based on an expanded model of Personal development the objective is always for the betterment of relating to the problem in a different way as well as improving relationships in general and specifically.

Relating to self differently, relating to others differently and focusing on how we can cooperate and move forward.

I hope this is helpful and I am interested to know what you like the most about NLP so drop me a line.

There is always time to take care of yourself emotionally we can consider it part of our daily routine.  Here are four easy actions to master this right now.

Use NLP to Shift your State | NLP is Fun

  • Interrupt the problem and shift your attention inward.
  • Slow you breathing down 3 times and 3 breaths each and watch all thoughts fly away.
  • Slow your heartrate down claim your desired state into being and relax.
  • Shift your state and connect to your best self in body and mind.
Taking control of how you feel is essential in Neuro linguistic programming and we call your mood your state (of being).

NLP is based on the principle that you prioritize your state to become highly effective. Each NLP pattern focuses on using sensory acuity to manage your state.

The exercise demonstrated uses Kinesthetic responses to Interrupt the pattern and shift your physiology while imagining something better for yourself while in this state,

When you manage your mood (state) you feel better and more capable of doing more, more easily, more consistently.

4 Ways to Improve Auditory Awareness as a Neuro linguistic programming coach | NLP IS Fun

A huge part of truly mastering Neuro linguistic programming is your ability to calibrate information. We as neuro linguistic programming coaches and change workers have a different take on listening, this is because we are so interested in the words, tonality, cadence, inflection and so much more.  We consider all of this additional information that adds meaning to the words you choose.

The last two years during the pandemic is a perfect example of how becoming more adaptive with sensory based information became so much more relevant, since we were no longer connecting in the ways we had been so used to.
We were unable to meet in person or have a large group. In this case how we presented information changed. Neuro linguistic programming training that traditionally had been done face to face in many cases was 100% online or via telecommunication, email, video.

NLP coaches were mostly coaching with their telephones now and online.

We also found there may be times it was not possible to have any visuals and only have auditory sensory calibration capabilities.

Communication is what we as Neuro linguistic programmers do, we love to learn your "model of the world".
This information is relevant and priceless to us and considered information gathering. 

Because to us listening is more than just hearing. Being fully focused and present to the information being presented in its original form. Without adding anything to it, instead listening exactly how it is being presented and examining each subtle nuance.

Notice what you can notice that lends more information or creates some type of micro shift and explore it to find out what is going on.

If you have been one of my long-time readers of NLP is Fun you may be familiar with this post, I wrote about your Auditory representation system which is also a worthwhile read.

Here are 4 ways to Improve auditory awareness as an NLP Coach

4 ways to Improve Auditory awareness | NLP is Fun

1. Listen to tonality = the speakers tone always gives much more information as to the strength of the statement belief, or mind state at time of communicating. Ask yourself "what is the meaning of this" and explore more.

2. Listen to Rythm and Pace changes read my blog post about Rhyme, Rhythm and Hypnosis here   for more about communication Language and Rythm.

3. Listen to the speakers breathing and notice heart rate, if possible as well as body language does this appear to match the pace of the words being communicated. 

4. Listen to repetitions, metaphors, reasons and beliefs each one adding volumes of clues.

Think of yourself as a communication investigator and have fun investigating. Remember do not add assumptions of your own and be objective in your findings. 

It is your turn, how do you feel about doing this, perhaps you have another tip have you ever had great success by doing these and more please let me know in the comments.

10 ways to become solution focused with Neuro linguistic programming | NLP is Fun

It is possible to live at cause using Neuro linguistic programming.

As NLP'ers we speak a lot about feeling Powerful, being powerful and living at Cause to create the life that we deserve.
We speak of living at Cause and not effect.

Living at cause = feeling and being in control of your life, "I cause this to happen" I am in charge of my life, I have the capability to choose, make a difference etc.

Living at Effect = feeling Powerless, "This happens to me" People are in control of me and my circumstances.

When being in control even if dark skies seemingly loom ahead because you are "at Cause" you are looking for the light. this becomes a filter, in your thinking and expectations and naturally in your behavior and unconscious choices.

Nadia Harper Neuro linguistic programming Trainer and Coach.

How would your life change if you unconsciously filter a commitment to seeking the light? 

Here are 10 ways to become solution focused with Neuro linguistic programming.

1. Keep your radar tuned in to discovering the light because it has to be there somewhere.

2. Speak your own power into being "I can, I will, I am" capable.

3. See yourself as worthwhile, able, capable build up to powerful.

4. Become solution oriented, only focus on the solution and it will become a filter in all your do and how you think and also resolve.

5. Let go of the problem, disengage your kinesthetic responses and learn the structure of how the problem was created.

6. See the construct as pliable either way. Towards a solution or against a solution.

7. Decide the direction you will focus on and assert your power only to back up your commitment to resolution.

8. Do not allow anything to dissuade you from reaching your outcome.

9. Create mental drills that support your outcome.

10. Feel the shift ahead of time and act as if this is true.

Get it if you want it | NLP is Fun | NLP Modeling

Do you know with NLP we are in the business of change and transformation?
We are speaking about Neuro Linguistic programming.
We will create a system for us to get whatever it is that we want, because those of you who know, know the heart of NLP is Modeling.

So, with that being said, define what it actually is that you truly want. and find somebody who is already achieving it in the way you would like to experience it.

Become a student of their behavior, their habits, beliefs, driving forces, rituals and patterns. Then Visualize yourself doing these things as often as you want to actually fully associate to yourself and changing your own perception of whom you are and what exactly.

Now remember that your sensory association to this process is everything, and I mean E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.
In order for you to move into this process You absolutely must shift your consciousness which means begin something Brand Spanking New.

Be Prepared to step into something that looks new, sounds new, feels new, smells and tastes new.
We call this change.

As you focus 100% on these new patterns, they begin to replace the old ways for something even better for you.
And now you know exactly how to do it.

You will love it, be sure to let me know how you get on.

NLP is Fun has close to 400 posts on Neuro Linguistic programming and Hypnosis. If this is something, you are interested in then do find another post or two that you like. You are welcome.

Improve your Auditory awareness | NLP is Fun

Being an NLP Coach and using Neuro Linguistic programming means that you can really Listen well. For multiple reasons of convenience and adaptation Coaching over the phone and not having a visual can be a reality.

Because I have been Coaching for many years, I have listed a few things to focus on while enhancing your auditory skillset.
This is in no ways exhaustive there are so many other endless possibilities to consider. with the following tips for sure your coaching sessions will be effective.

Hiking in Las Vegas | NLP is Fun | Nadia NLP

Remember a huge part of listening is being 100% focused, attentive, engaged and present. the person wants to feel as if you are listening.

Remember as an NLP Practitioner your client is telling a story using their language, Maps, Metaphors and actions.
Become aware of the repetitions and emerging patterns in their delivery. begin to notice and explore their beliefs using the Meta model to ask questions about specifics.

Instead of "Mind reading" notice what seems to be the priority and explore it to discover more about it, remember you are speaking to the unconscious mind, the storehouse of their reality. It may be the conscious mind has another idea, find out by listening to the language and listening for subtle "Tells".

Notice what you will notice when they shift: has their breathing changed, were there any fluctuations in their Rythm, did they pause or hesitate. Has their tonality changed in any way did their voice crack, crackle, become higher lower, quieter or louder?

What else is happening now, explore, notice and make a note of it, ask gentle questions to see what else happens.

Sometimes the best thing to do is to think of it as a treasure hunt to the deep structure, the patterns the real wants.
Realeyes working with clients is a fine art that will be refined and developed over time as long as you focus on improving your understanding of the infinite possibilities available to you through Neuro linguistic programming and Hypnosis.

Always be curious, open and willing to learn more, practice more, experience more NLP and Hypnotherapy to become a better NLP Coach. 

For sure the best is yet to come, when every day becomes even better than right now, doesn't it?
