NLP Submodalities

 

First ask your client to think of a few past memory or event coming up in the future, when thinking about this event/memory, I want you to become aware of the image you create in your mind

 

STEP 1. Check current level of emotion

ASK “On a scale of 1 – 10, with 1 representing negative and 10 representing positive, where on the scale does this image/memory makes you feel?”

STEP 2. Uncover the submodalities of the image in their mind

  • How big or small is your image?
  • Where is your image (near to you or far away)
  • Is the image in colour or black and white?
  • Does the image look like a photograph or a moving film?
  • Do you have any audio?

 

STEP 3. Change the submodalities (always check the emotional response to each change)

  • Move the picture closer and closer until its right up in front of your face like a giant cinema screen – how do you feel?

 

  • Now move the image further and future away until it becomes hard to make out the details of the image – how do you feel now?

 

  • What would happen if you made the colours brighter? Or dimmer?

 

  • How do you feel if you turn up the sound or turn the sound down? Or if you add a funny or sad tune?

 

To change your emotions, change the submodalities of the image you are imagining, try to do the opposite first (if the image is near push it far away) play around with the submodalities until you can control your own emotions; reduce the power of negative emotions and increase the intensity of positive emotions – whenever you want to.

Visual Submodalities

Colour or black and white

Image; near or far away

Bright or dim picture

Small or large image

Stilled picture or moving film

Where do you see the image (behind you – in front of you/ to left/to the right) – can you move it?

Are you in the picture/film or just looking at it from an outsider’s point of view?

Does the image have a frame or is it frameless?

Is the picture real or represented as a cartoon/drawing/figure etc

Audio

Does the image have a sound?

Turn the sound on or off

Turn the sound up or down

Speed the sound up or s-l-o-w it down

Where does the sound come from – can you change it?

Is it your voice or someone else’s

Do you hear (as an example) music playing or real life sounds (breathing)?

Kinesthetic

Do things feel lifelike or created (as an example some people have said the felt like they were made out of marshmallows)? Remember your imagination can be as creative as it wants to be

Do objects feel hard or soft?

Are your feelings inside (emotions) or outside your body (feel heat if you imagine yourself next to a fire)?

Temperature – in your body or in the real world? Cold or hot emotions?

Fast or slow emotions (speed of the emotion running through your body)?

STEP 4. Check the outcome

ASK “On a scale of 1 – 10, with 1 representing negative and 10 representing positive, where on the scale does this image/memory makes you feel?”

The image should be represented differently on the scale. Once you uncover the most effective changes, you can repeat the exercise several times which will often result in the original image/memory being hard to recall.

 

Advanced NLP Submodalities Techniques

 

Change the representation of the submodality

  • Turn a picture into a sound, a sound into a feeling or a feeling into a picture
  • Change the submodaility as above (turn the volume down, move the image away, pour a different colour into the feeling)

Swop Images

  • Think of something you truly believe in (I am talented, a peoples person, I can cook)
  • Think of something you don’t believe about yourself and imagine this was true
  • Check the difference in submodalities from the two beliefs
  • Change, one by one the submodalities of the second belief so they match the submodalities of the first belief.
