How Does Neuro Linguistic Programming Work?
Have you ever been challenged by your mind when you decided to change a dysfunctional habit or behavior, only to find you subconsciously repeated it again? Do you ever wonder why you keep repeating the old negative behaviors and or habits that sabotage your happiness?
It is because all our behaviors, habits and beliefs, whether negative or positive, are stored in our subconscious mind, because our subconscious is 88 percent of our mind power, and it does not discriminate between negative and positive. It simply adopts habits, behaviors, and beliefs that it is exposed to repeatedly.
Since the subconscious mind stores and organizes memories, it works on the principle of choosing a path of least resistance. It controls and maintains all perceptions and needs clear orders to follow. Thus, through the right tools we are able to change or re-program the negative patterns and turn them into positive ones.
That’s when NLP becomes a powerful therapeutic tool, which helps to permanently heal and overcome negative emotions, limiting behaviors and beliefs. On a subconscious level, NLP tools help you to see and understand how you can change the responses and behaviors that limit you, and turn them into positive behaviors that allow you to live life to the fullest. NLP helps you to create and live through choice.
What does NLP Mean?
It is the study of how verbal and non-verbal language affects our mind.
Neuro refers to the brain. Sending, receiving, and storing signals that add up to information.
Linguistic refers to the language, both verbal and non-verbal, that moves across and through pathways.
Programming is the way the content is manipulated to convert it into useful information.
Through this process the brain is able to connect to a better experience, which then converts into thinking patterns and behaviors that become the essence of our experiences in life.
