How Reframing Works

May 17, 2008
Reframing is looking at life and events in life in a new context or content. It's like looking at a painting - you can choose where to focus your attention and from there base what you will feel. If you were shown a set of frames showing pictures of a big man running, and on the next frame you saw the man pushing an old lady, you would immediately conclude that the man pushed the old lady because he was a bad man.

But what if you were shown the same frames, but now with a wider angle, and now you see that the man running was trying to save the old lady because right up above her head was a construction and debris was about to fall on her - so he pushed her away. Your conclusion is now altered and the man you first thought to be "good for nothing thug" is now a hero.

Reframing is almost the same as that. Looking at life at a larger context and content, that what you see is not really what you get. You might be missing something altogether in your conclusion. Reframing helps you get more perspective and look for more details before you make any judgment - it helps you become more objective and rational.

So if you feel like you are a victim of your childhood's bad experiences, try to look again in the past and reframe the events. Free yourself from your common pathway of thinking and challenge yourself to look for the good in the bad. Try to look at the wider angles you might not have considered before, open your mind and see what you have missed that could change the way how you feel about your past.

Was it better if your father had not left you? Would you have become a better person? Or was your father leaving helped you survived because he was always hurting you and your mother. You could reframe the past and see the positive in an otherwise hurtful situation. You might just thank your father for abandoning you; otherwise you might not be so lucky to be alive now. Reframing makes you see the positive of a situation gone bad - it gives you a new way of looking things at a different context or content.

Reframing is an active way of thinking and looking for the positive, the good and the beautiful. It helps people to become their best in whatever circumstances they may find themselves...and you always have a choice.

NLP & EFT Practitioners have studied this effective way of thinking and pattern of behavior practiced by many successful people from different fields and walks of life. Thirty years of study resulted in the work that are presented in many workshops and trainings to help people live a more happy and successful life.

In school you were taught the many dynamics of science, math and the rigors of English language. But education did not include how to have a happy and positive outlook in life. You did not learn how to feel good about yourself or how to have successful relationship with someone else. This is where reframing can help a lot - to aid you to achieve success in life.
