NLP and Critical Thinking (Revisited)

NLP and Critical Thinking (Revisited)

  We are always asked the question what is critical thinking? In general, critical thinking is about looking at the world in a new way. A way where we don’t just accept dogmatically, blindly and without questioning what we are told. We don’t just accept what we are told, but we question everything. We mean everything. Is that a good idea to question everything? Doesn’t it take longer and make us look bad? Well, the question is then are you willing to think for yourself or do you want your thoughts and beliefs to be put...

How NLP & Time Line Therapy® Saved My Marriage – Part 2

What’s The Purpose of an Anchor?

What’s The Purpose of an Anchor?

In one of our recent trainings the following question arose: What’s the purpose of an anchor? And we’re talking here about the NLP jargon folks, in which the definition of an “anchor” an anchor is simply a connection or a link between a certain stimulus and a certain emotional response. So, defined formally Anchoring is a neuro-linguistic programming term for the process by which a person recalls a memory in which they felt a certain emotion, while a particular stimulus (visual, auditory or kinesthetic) is simultaneously applied. In...

How NLP & Time Line Therapy® Saved My Marriage – Part 1

What if you had tools that could allow you to have the relationship that you wanted? What if you could see eye to eye with your partner, mate or spouse? There’s so many cliché’s out there about what relationships are and what they are not. Many a romantic comedy has been made about the nuances of relationships and even books about men and women being from different planets. Sure they are entertaining and maybe even funny, but are these ‘stereo-types’ about relationships really true? Are men and women different… absolutely! Is there...

Mutant Giant Spider Dog?

  “You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.” ― Harlan Ellison I schedule this article well in advance of its posting since I will begin a long and busy schedule of trainings in Australia and I will have little time left for blogging, so forgive the time difference between the referred video and the posting of this article. I just happened to log into our YouTube channel with the intention of posting a few new videos and dutifully YouTube offered me...

One of the Basic Rules Taught in NLP: Define the Words Precisely

One of the Basic Rules Taught in NLP: Define the Words Precisely

One of the basic rules taught in the Language section of every one of our NLP Coaching Trainings is: define your words precisely. It all starts with the basic NLP Presuppositions (don’t get confused between these and the Presuppositions in natural language, which I will discuss in a moment).  The NLP Presuppositions are basic beliefs about NLP and how it works.  One of these basic NLP beliefs is self-explanatory but little understood by most people in communication: The map is not the territory. In one of my previous articles (read it...

How to Change the Future Based on Your Time’s Past

How to Change the Future Based on Your Time’s Past

  As you can tell from the title of this post, this article is focused primarily on a practical technique to create (yes to create) a future you want rather than something that “just happens”. In the NLP Coaching Master Practitioner trainings during the Time Line Therapy® Master section we unravel how the future is created based on past experiences. One of the main themes of that section in the training is concerned with the fact that there is not a set future exactly the same for everybody and that space and time are fluid,...

Do You See In, Or Do You See Out The NLP Hierarchy of Ideas Part 2

  In Part 1 of this article we discussed the Hierarchy of Ideas technique from the NLP Coaching Practitioner Training and the two types of thinking – abstract, big picture, capable of connecting the dots and the specific, detailed thinking that allows us to notice minute differences but misses completely the pattern behind the specific examples. One example to make it easier for you to understand would be food. A bigger pattern of which food is an example of would be nourishment, and an even bigger pattern for nourishment would be...

Do You See In, Or Do You See Out The NLP Hierarchy of Ideas Part 1

  In NLP there is a little technique called “The Hierarchy of Ideas”. We teach it in every NLP Coaching Practitioner Training. Often overlooked and mostly poorly explained in the average NLP courses, this technique is essential for your capacity to observe and be aware of the bigger picture (or the pattern). In a nutshell “Hierarchy of Ideas” is a technique that shows you how to develop a way of thinking that can easily navigate along the continuum from abstract thinking to specificity or the other way around depending on...

Our ‘Tightly-Narrow-Thinking-Box’ Challenged Again

Our ‘Tightly-Narrow-Thinking-Box’ Challenged Again

  We live in a tightly defined box. Which in turns defines tightly controlled thinking – this you can think, this is not Ok to think, this you can do, that you cannot do. Oh and let’s also remember the confusing and perplexing contradictory messages we receive – we should dislike X but on the other hand we’re told that X is ok (under certain circumstances which remain murky and unknown). We should be against Y but Y is ok. We can say Z but we cannot say Z under other circumstances. How small and limited our spectrum of perception...
