Healing Your Past With In-Depth NLP

May 20, 2008
We all know the feeling, something happens and suddenly we get that old familiar feeling. Maybe we remember our mother or father shouting at us, or a scene from the schoolyard. Whatever it is, something triggered a feeling from our past.

So what can we do to change this? One thing is to use a technique call reimprinting. Reimprinting is a technique used in hypnosis and in neuro linguistic programming NLP for changing the way we relate to our past.

This technique should not be used on traumatic memories without the guidance of a qualified professional.

Reimprinting depends upon the fact that our unconscious mind cannot tell the difference between a memory and an intense visualization. By returning to a memory and re-experiencing it in a new way, we can change the way we feel about it. By picking a memory from childhood say, we can make a significant difference in the way we view our entire life.

The technique that follows is from In-Depth NLP. In-Depth NLP uses NLP techniques but utilizing deep hypnotic principles to fully engage the unconscious mind in change. In-Depth NLP is taught here at our center in New York.

When a memory from the past, particularly from childhood, is triggered in a negative way, we can go back and change how we feel about it as follows:

* Remember the memory as a visual scene. Imagine you see the scene down on the floor across the room in front of you, as if looking at a diorama.

* See the younger you in the scene.

* Notice who is in the scene other than the younger you.

* Notice what is happening.

* As you observe the younger you, notice what skills or resources that you have now, that had the younger you had them, the situation would have been different.

* Gift those resources to the younger you in whichever way seems best. Notice how the scene is different as the younger you enjoys those resources.

* Now one by one, look at the other characters in the scene, perhaps your parents, teachers, school-friends or whoever. Say it is a teacher.

* As you observe this teacher, notice what skills or resources that you have now, that had that teacher had them, would have made things different. Gift those resources to that teacher in whatever way seems best. Notice how the scene changes again.

* Do this gifting of resources to all the characters in the scene. Notice how the scene changes each time.

* When the scene is just the way you want, replay it again.

* Now, if you wish, step back into the scene and feel what it is like in its new form. Note that you should not do this if the scene was traumatic without expert help.

The result of this procedure is that we create a new "memory" where the younger self had the skills and resources they needed to deal with the situation. Although we know what "actually" happened, our unconscious mind will be attracted to the new positive "memory" and will begin to build current experience and reality using this new "memory".

As a result of this work, you may find your feelings and behavior changing in the present, now.

Reimprinting is taught on our In-Depth NLP courses here in New York.
