Learn NLP to Practice NLP !!

The first NLP Practitioner program experience was an eye opener while the second practitioner program was more of having a clear pathway set for the transformation. Post attending the first practitioner program my journey started knowing my Inner Self, knowing things that I didn’t know, identifying my blinders and limiting beliefs which was stopping me from going ahead.

Having this Self Awareness and knowing my current limiting beliefs , I  started having the internal communication consciously to  define what are the things I want in my life and the changes I need to install within my system. Having understood my meta programs, I consciously tried changing my past time focus to being in present time.

This helped me setting short term goals for myself followed by action plans and strategies to achieve them. Now that both goals and strategies were defined , execution became much easier and  faster and so  the results were also at par. Ultimate change , I can see myself better organized in my work and more productive.

All the NLP presuppositions taught for the first time helped me understand how I can have control and focus on my thoughts, behaviour and actions. I simply started applying it in my daily life, which made challenging tasks easier to work on and come up with best possible solutions to have predictable results. ”We are incharge of our minds and therefore results”.  “We are what we think. What we think we are “ made a huge difference applying it in my life. Earlier when faced with challenges, negativity would instantly pop up followed by lot of if’s and but’s. Now,I know for sure , I have all the resources within me to bring the desired results, so my approach is  positive keeping me in a resourceful state  always.

Anchoring states was something I learnt in the 1st Practitioner program. In the  2nd program, I got opportunity to deliver a session on learning strategies for the first time in front of some 15 participants. It was a great experience giving my  peak performance. I delivered it with  full of confidence, connecting with the audience. It was well appreciated by everyone including the Master Trainers . I was elated and that moment of happiness which I experienced ,I anchored the feeling of my peak performance state.

In just about 2 weeks  time I was asked  if I could start with the introduction in Power of NLP which we launched in Pune ,I confidently told him a “Yes!!” knowing that  I had the resources within me to deliver without letting an iota of doubt bothering me. Before going on to face the audience, I just went into  my peak performance state and I was already there..Next ,all I did was delivered my part confidently , without fumbling or feeling nervous.

These are my experiences of learning NLP and practicing NLP in my life !!DSC_0052 copy

I smile hence everyone smiles

It was a humid evening of August (hot-wet-sweat), I was in nearby market with my cute little daughter. Actually, I was searching the idol/statue of Lord Krishna for the festival of Janmashthmi , which was to be celebrated the next day. During the day I have been very stressed and angry , as my boss did firing on me twice during the day; the personal finance issues were bothering me like demons; fought with my wife in morning as previous day I didn’t celebrate her birthday way she expected , the gift I gave to her was not at all impressive is what she felt.

In these states (I was not a NLP Practitioner  at that time), dwindling in my thoughts I was walking on the streets with my mind out of the body. I saw idols and portraits of the Lord Krishna marvelously displayed on the luminous show cases. The idols were made of the attractive stuff and skillfully crafted by the artisans. As I came close to the idols, I saw one thing missing in the idols i.e. smile. I stepped to the other shop, but this time also the same pattern was observed by me i.e. smile was absent & it seemed like God is tensed and stressed. For an hour, I went 10 to 12 shops, and I observed the face of Lord Krishna as dull, irksome and without smile. In past, the image of God for me especially Lord Krishna was always bright, pleasant, cheerful and blissful, but that day  God portrayed their image as exactly opposite and I didn’t wanted to to take dull, gloomy and dispirited faced God Idol to my house. At last, I entered a shop where the idols were placed on the show case made of mirror and then there I saw my complete reflection………

I was completely stunned by seeing my face in the mirror …… for a moment i was not able to see in my own eyes. One minute before, I was thinking that I will not take any idol home whose face appears dreary, gloomy and dispirited, and for that full day, I was walking, eating, talking, doing everything  including driving in FUSE (Frustrated-Useless) mode instead of FUEL (Flexibility –Useful States–Elicitation ) mode. Next moment, I got instant awareness that it is not only through my physical eyes that we are looking at the world, but something inside our mind is too deep (the hidden eyes) which everyone should embrace. If the thoughts are dark and gloomy, the images we  will form would also be dark and hence actions can not be fruitful and productive. If the thoughts are delighted and cheerful, the whole world would cheer for you including God.

The imitations (can be referred as modeling) and limitations of the actions start from you first. After acquiring the skills and concepts of NLP, I am able to understand the Power of Now; I am able to grasp the powerful journey from Fantastic (resourceful) states to superb actions; from sensory specified goals to well formed outcomes.

Our state is the sum total of what is occurring in the mind-body system (Emotional-Mental-Physical) at any given time. It is the neurological, biological, endocrine, immune and lymphatic systems working together to create a state, even stress or motivation is also a state.

Now, I love to feel good and never to feel bad. Feeling good or bad are labels assigned to bodily sensations. It is useful to be more aware of the sensations than labels. As you attain or accomplish your outcomes, the sensations attributed to feeling good will become stronger and stronger. The more congruent you are with the big picture of your life, the more you feel those good sensations. Now, I smile and God smiles, I smile hence everyone smiles.

The “Self-less” YOU

If things are not happening the way you want them to!

If you cannot take charge of your own life!

If you constantly feel somebody must come to your rescue!

If you always end up going to astrologers!

If you are always confused and directionless!

If you are always depending on others!

If you are always more irresponsible towards your own self!

Then, for sure, the child in your mind is prominent. The feeling of being small, young, inexperienced,unexposed, immature, is stronger than the feeling of being grown up and responsible.

To lead your life with absolute responsibility towards everything in life, you need to become your ‘self’.

To become ‘self’, you have to pull your focus towards you. To stretch this completely, I would profess to become mentally or emotionally, ‘orphan’. To stretch this further, feel as if you are all alone on an island.

Now, when there is not a single chance that you can share anything with anyone, what would you do?

Think of your ‘self’. Think of your ‘own self’. That’s it!

Since childhood, you are amongst people. You are surrounded by family, friends, colleagues, well wishers. You have always found a “shoulder” not only to cry but even to shoulder your responsibilities.

You have very smartly shared everything that you belong with someone or other to avoid the responsibility. May be you have sometimes crossed to limits of ‘social morality’ to share just to fulfill ‘the crave’ to get that help from others.

You feel comfortable, therefore, with people. People around you, allow you, because they love you.

But you are the creature, you neither love your ‘self’ nor you have interest in anyone else, except that ‘smart selfish motive’ of getting rid of your own responsibilities. Therefore, you keep relationships with people.

For you, “the self-less you” is great!

Now at this stage of life, may be you may not like what I am saying! It’s quite possible that you may end up hating people like me, who would only talk to you to ask you to become your ‘self’. May be you think, it’s too late now!shutterstock_96075857

Assure your ‘self’, it’s never too late! Start Now!

Self Mastery with Communication

Communication plays a very crucial role in any individual’s life. Just think about it… A baby starts to communicate with the mother in her womb when it kicks and shakes about. Once the baby is born, it uses ‘crying’ to announce his or her arrival to our world. As the baby grows, it learns to speak and express itself in different ways, verbally and non-verbally.

Various factors that influence the way we ‘communicate’ are:

–> Our environment – which includes our upbringing, language, culture, the place we are settled in, our audience, people who we are surrounded by, and everything else around us.

–> Our experiences – memories of the past in which we were effected by the means and manner we communicated through.

–> Our education – what we have learnt ever since our childhood.

–> Subject or topic of discussion – the matter, what we are trying to convey.

–> Status in the society – where we stand in our lives.

These are just a few of the many factors that effect our manner of communication.

One of the many powerful NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) presuppositions is “The Meaning of Communication is the Response you get”.

We know that both verbal and non-verbal behaviors trigger responses in others. The point of communication is to get an outcome. An effective communicator is not just someone with good command of language and delivery. He or She is someone who gets her desired response.

After this closer glimpse at what communication is, are you curious to know:

  • How must we communicate to get our desired results?
  • The complete understanding of how the ‘Communication Model’?
  • How important internal communication really is?
  • What we need to do to become an effective communicator?

Join us at #Atmabhan for a ‘Self Mastery Workshop’ where we answer all these questions and any others you may be interested in.
