NLP Hypnosis Manchester – Moving The Pictures

NLP Hypnosis Manchester – Moving The Pictures

Two clients came to see me for relationship coaching, I asked them both to think of their last holiday. The wife smiled, while the husband frowned. The same question had invoked different emotional responses.

 

Our mind often creates images out of the words we hear. These images are referenced against our emotional memories before we are automatic told how to react through an instant chemical release creating our current state. The wife remembered positive holiday memories and felt good, the husband remembered a negative memoir and felt bad.

 

To take control of yourself you can learn to change the sub modalities of these images which change the motional response. The submodalities include colour, picture size, moving or stilled image, brightness, attached or detached images, dimness, distance of image, framed or unframed image, sounds, smells and internal self-talk, plus many others.

Changing Your Emotional Response to a Memory

 

To highlight the power of changing the submodalities of an emotional memory I would first like to you to think of a past event that made you feel anxious or nervous. This could be a first date, an interview, public speaking or anything that created a thought of dread.

 

When you remember this scary event on a scale of 1-10 how do you feel, with 1 representing completely calm and 10 representing arghhhhh I’m really anxious!

 

Think about the image; where abouts is this image in your mind? Is it in front of your head, further of in the distance, to one side, is it like looking at a photo or a giant cinema screen?

 

Wherever it is, move the image in front of you so you can see the edges of the picture and you can see all the people in the image including yourself, so rather than seeing it from your own eyes you see it from the view of an observer.

 

If the image is a moving picture, a film, I want you to pause the film so it becomes a stilled image. If the image is in colour let the colour drain from the picture so you are left with a black and white stilled photograph.

Ask yourself now, while looking at this image on a scale of 1-10 how do you feel, with 1 representing completely calm and 10 representing arghhhhh I’m really anxious!

 

Next move the image further and further away towards the horizon, and the further away the image goes the smaller the picture becomes, getting smaller and smaller the future away you move it – how do you feel now?

 

Move the picture so far away that it is hard to make out the detail, it becomes fuzzy, until it shrinks and shrinks going from the size of a postcard, to a stamp and finally to a dot on the horizon – how do you feel no on a scale of 1-10? Let that dot fade away one last time.

 

Have you noticed that your negative emotions that were once strong have vanished? You can do this NLP technique with any negative memory helping you to feel how you want to feel, respond how you want to respond, act how you want to act.

 

NLP and hypnotherapy help you to have more choices and if you complete this exercise often enough or in a trance state you will find that at some point soon, you won’t even be able to recall the negative image, even if you try.
