NLP Alert: Your Eye Patterns May Hold the Key to a Better Behavior -New NLP Application – Part 2
This is a warning. This is advanced material. If you don’t understand it, you’ll need to study the NLP Practitioner material or call the office nearest you for clarification.
Don’t Bother Me – I Know How It Is. I’m Sleeping Here! Don’t Wake Me Up!
As you talk to people and tell them about NLP techniques, and among other things the Eye-Patterns I am sure you have at least once been met with complete indifference and even disdain. “What are you talking about?” they might have said to you, Or even worse “Who cares?”
This type of thinking arises from the fact that people keep repeating learned behaviors according to the same good, old map in the box, hence even those who know about eye-Patterns assume that their Eye-Patterns are the same as if cast in stone. As a generalization this type of thinking is trying to fit every human on earth in the same box, and presume that humans are inferior creatures, not good enough, not intelligent enough, not capable enough, not creative enough, incapable of evolving, you name it! I don’t even want to follow up on what this type thinking implies, but you can figure it out on your own.
These people have managed to train a big majority of humanity that we are spectators of our own lives since by and large the big mass of humanity is just a box of predictable catalogued behaviors. They have even gone so far as to train many of us to experience our lives by proxy.
We are told how we should be, or how “it”- whatever IT is – should be and we’re doing our best to conform. But experiencing life by proxy equals passivity to the greatest possible degree. And to disturb that passivity in any way brings out complaints and protests. Don’t make me think, I’m sleeping.
The de-bunkers ultimate argument is: “Don’t bother me with your ideas. I know how it is (in effect they only know the dogma). I know Eye-Patterns are a bogus thing. I know the box and what should be in it.”
I would like to make something clear – no map of the Eye-Patterns or prediction about how it should be will ever be accurate enough or complete enough for everybody. How could you possibly know the future events in your baby’s personal history to be able to predict his/her eye-patterns with precision? How could you have had your Eye-Patterns if your past was different? Eye-Patterns, like all maps describing human traits or behaviors cannot be cast in stone. However they serve extremely well as an indicator about something else going on in the brain of the individual.
From time to time the de-bunkers of Eye-Patterns claim to make a breakthrough into settling the issue once and for all; however every time they do, they discover much to their disappointment that their certainty about eye-patterns recedes further into the distance. What they discover implies more ignorance, not less.
First of all, they have no idea about NLP elicitation of Eye-Patterns and their utility, and even if they are willing to learn them, they do not make the connection with their importance. And their importance is related to our behaviors and health.
In Part 3 we will talk more about whether you’re right brained or left brained and why is that important – moreover how it can change even during the same day….
Until next time, be well
