What is NLP?
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a set of principles, attitudes and technologies which can bring a phenomenal transformation in your life. In no time, you will be able to drop undesirable behaviours that sabotage your life and instead adopt purposeful behaviours that will enable you to enjoy physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It is a science of excellence.
NLP is the study of human subjective experience which comprises of neurology, language and observable patterns of human behaviour (programming). Neuro refers to neurology; the nervous system (mind) - how the five sensory organs (visual, auditory, kinaesthetic, olfactory and gustatory) pick up information from outside and how it is processed or organized inside to give a meaning. Linguistics is language ; verbal and non-verbal communication system through which our neural representations are coded, ordered and given a meaning, including pictures, sounds, feelings, smells, tastes and self-talk. Programming means the sequence of coded instructions ; the patterns that we run to create the behaviours that achieve our outcomes. Our behaviours are external and are programmed (maps) inside which can always be changed (Programming).
Uses of NLP:
NLP was started as a therapeutic tool. Soon it branched out into modelling and communication.
NLP and Modelling: NLP is a modelling science. Bandler and Grinder modeled several experts, the most important being Fritz Perls, the originator of Gestalt Therapy, Virginia Satir, a renowned Family Therapist and Dr. Milton Erickson MD, Ph.D, Psychiatrist and world-renowned Hypnotherapist. You can replicate your excellence of the past in the present, transfer excellence from one area of your life to another and even duplicate another persons excellence.
NLP and Communication: NLP is a revolutionary approach to human communication and development based on the astonishing discovery that by changing how you think, you can transform what you think. Effective communication is invaluable to everyone in Relationship, Parenting, Teaching and Learning, Therapy and Counselling, Business and Management, Employees, Sales, Coaching and Personal Development. NLP teaches you how to establish good communication and rapport between your conscious mind and unconscious mind and with others.
NLP and Therapy: Ninety percent of all diseases are psychosomatic in nature. Despite great advances in medical science over the years, it cannot cure them. Some of these ailments are migraines, asthma, allergies, back pains without injury, phobias of all kinds, traumas, grief, fatigue, unknown pains and fears, other stress-based problems, etc. Psychosomatic means the cause is the mind and the effect is on the body. NLP believes that body and mind are one system, a loop - cybernetic. You cannot separate them. Medical science by and large treats the body, and not the mind. Psychiatry treats the brain and not the mind again ; and counselling addresses the conscious mind alone. Most problems are hidden in the unconscious mind. Mind is in the whole body. Human body has over 50 trillion cells and every cell is a complete human person, having its own mind; but they behave as a community, always in communication with each other. Quantum Physics is at work here. Body, mind and spirit work together and are in touch with the Universe. This is the contribution of Dr.Bruce Lipton, Dr.Candace Pert, Dr. Deepak Chopra and others. Medical science still believes in Newtonian Physics which says that matter is solid. Quantum Physics says nothing is solid, and that everything is energy. Vedas in India knew this over a thousands years ago. NLP says we are in touch with perception (maps) of the world and not the reality. Most of our problems are maps which are in the mind and they can be changed (programming) They can be cured and some of them in a matter of minutes. That is good news.
