In my earlier post, I talked about managing our thoughts through Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and how that can allow you to live your best life ever.
And even as an NLP Coach you’re probably curious. “How does NLP affect my health?” and “How can I use it to improve my health?”
If you read my previous post, you know that going from where you are to where you want to be is only a thought away. And the same holds true for thoughts about our health.
During one of my 16 day NLP / Hypnotherapy training classes in Florida, I had a student who came in EVERY day complaining of a new ailment. Her leg hurt, the next day her shoulder hurt, she twisted her back. Every day was something new and as I was leaving one day, I noticed that, even though she wasn’t legally “handicapped”, she parked every day in a handicapped parking spot.
So I thought, if she’s NOT handicapped and at least twice a day she’s seeing the handicapped sign on the parking spot, then she’s subconsciously living out HER life as a handicapped person!
You see, as she feels the ailment, she then thinks the thought that “something is wrong” and continues to subconsciously recreate “something wrong” every day.
Once I pointed it out to her, she found a new parking spot, and through the New Behavior Generator and Anchoring NLP processes, she was able to change her “wrong” thinking into more positive thoughts which supported her desire to for excellent health.
A basic premise is that if you control your thoughts, you can control your words, and you have control over changes you wish to make in your life.
You will always have a variety of thoughts floating through your mind, so when I speak of controlling your thoughts, I’m referring to focusing your thoughts. You can CHOOSE what thoughts you want to put your focus on. The others will just float on through with barely a notice.
So, using words accurately is what NLP teaches. By teaching your brain to think, and it can be taught, in sound ways and behaviors that are in alignment with your values (see Manage Your Mind, Manage Your Life), then this produces positive effects on your body and heals your emotions.
As an NLP Coach, you’re aware that roughly 90% of illnesses originate in the mind. However, knowing this and applying it in your life can be two different things.
In the NLP MasterClass, I consciously and continuously monitor my students’ words while talking about your life, family, business, relationships, and health. By also observing your facial expressions, and body changes, I can see hidden “language” to discover the unwanted thoughts and the way you view your health, and get to the root of the problem, the negative belief stored in your unconscious.
Once the unconscious beliefs are brought into your consciousness, you will change your thinking pattern and eliminate any unwanted ideas about your health.
NLP has proven successful in sports, the educational field, sales, business, and health. Thrive Learning Collective’s NLP MasterClass students gain a much deeper level of understanding of how and why the techniques work and how not only to assist their clients in making positive life changes, but to incorporate them in their own lives.
All of us have role models such as film stars, sports stars, famous speakers, and so on. They have achieved success and prominence in their fields. They also have reasonably good health and radiant personalities. They have got to where they are by a strong “belief” system shored up with high quality thoughts.
You and I can also model or create patterns in our own lives by following their beliefs and patterns of behavior and so rise up to their levels of success. It is entirely possible. I’ve done it and I’ve seen so many of my students do it, as well. NLP is the shortest, most direct path to discover the inner resources we all possess. They are waiting to be tapped and brought out into the light, so that every aspect of our lives can be improved.
Success isn’t just for a chosen few, it’s for all of us.
