NEURO-linguistic programming explained
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro refers to your brain function; Linguistic refers to language; programming refers to how the two work in tandem to create your reality. In other words, learning NLP is like learning how directly communicate with your sub/unconscious mind.
There’s a saying; “You don’t get what you think you need (conscious), you only get what you ask for (sub/unconscious)”.
The unconscious mind navigates what we receive in life, it goes out and gets you exactly what you ask for, however, for most of us, we have no idea what we are asking for or how this relationship works.
Here’s an example:
Have you ever had the experience of paying for luxury accommodation only to get to the hotel and be told that your luxurious villa has been double booked and the only room available is a single bedroom dormitory facing a brick wall. This is the relationship that most of us have with our mind.
Why does this happen? - There is a deep disconnect between the conscious and unconscious minds, by the time your thought (want/need) reaches your unconscious mind it gets lost in translation and only the feeling remains, a feeling of wanting, which is translated as lack of or scarcity. Your unconscious mind then goes on to deliver you just that, another brick wall!!!
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is like a user’s manual for the brain. You will learn how to become fluent in the language of your mind, see what it is that you are ‘actually’ telling yourself as opposed to what you ‘think’ you are telling yourself, so that what you manifest and what you receive begin to align.
