Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), by definition, “is how to use the language of the mind to consistently achieve our specific and desired outcomes.”
From my perception, one of the most important reasons of NLP is the potential to be able to understand the mechanics of the unconscious mind. Neuro refers to the neurological processes within the mind through the experiences of being alive. The human body has five senses including sight, hearing, smell, taste and the energetic sensation of touch and feelings. Through a series of physical and communicated, linguistic expressions, these senses, which are powerful receptors, each receives and expresses the inner workings of the deepest core of the mind. How the mind interrupts these reactions and expressions, is all part of what makes each human unique. What one person perceives in meaning as a positive situation can be experienced by another person as a negative. It is the energetic programming of the individual self to create the accepted and rejected blueprint what will govern the actions of the body/mind to perpetuate a desirable and realistic existence.
In a therapeutic capacity, NLP is a wonderful gift of wonder that accesses the intangible resources of the energetic charge within the human body. The recognized, science based information creates a means of discovery as to what experiences the mind has claimed as its own. It is an external reaction to an internal experience and by integrating both, a deeper insight to the true self can be expressed and understood. The use of NLP can enhance, empower and liberate the confines of limiting beliefs and create a comprehensive method of rationalizing the complexity of the mind.
