Feeling Peaceful: End State Energy In In-Depth NLP

May 20, 2008
When we consider how we want to be as a person, we might say powerful, or exciting, or confident. However these are states that we can enjoy only for a period of time. Nobody feels powerful all the time, or exciting, or confident. If we felt powerful all the time we would likely be exhausted.

So when we think about how we want to be as a person, we come to the realization that our ultimate state is something less energetic. We can be peaceful, or calm, or loving. We can maintain these states over long periods (and ultimately forever, when we achieve enlightenment!). When we have these positive states as part of who we are, we can then layer on power or excitement or confidence when we need it. In other words, we can maintain a certain state of peace and raise that to a high-energy state when we need to.

This article discusses the use of this end state energy in personal change. The concept of end state energy is based on the work of John Overdurf, combined with our own work on In-Depth NLP. In-Depth NLP combines the best of hypnosis with neuro linguistic programming NLP. In-Depth NLP is taught on our NLP training in New York.

So how do we use this concept end state energy? Suppose we have a problem that we want to deal with, say smoking. We have two options for using end state energy described below. The key to using either of these is to engage the unconscious mind in the process. In order to do this we need to put the client (if we are a qualified hypnotist) into trance, or use self-hypnosis on ourselves.

When you have solved the problem how will you be as a person?

So I smoke. I can ask myself: "When I have overcome this habit, how will I be as a person?" or "When this issue is behind me and is no longer something I am concerned about, how will I be then as a person?"

The answer to these questions is likely to be an end state energy. Something like "I'll be in control", or "I'll just be", or "I'll be at peace".

When I have this answer, not just in my head, but so that I can really feel the state, then is the time for me to think about my smoking. As I feel that end state energy I can ask myself: "and as I feel that "peace" and I think about that cigarette, how is it different now".

What is the positive intention for me smoking?

Alternatively I can take a more measured approach. As I think about smoking I can ask: "What is the positive intention of my smoking? What does it do for me?"

Suppose the answer is that it reduces my stress. I can then ask myself what I get when my stress is reduced. Perhaps the answer comes: "I can enjoy myself more". And what do I get from being able to enjoy myself more? Perhaps "I'll be able to be myself". And then? "I'll be at peace".

When we reach the end state in this way, we can then work backwards step by step. I can ask myself: "As I feel that peace, how does that increase my sense of being myself?" And then as I feel that peace: "How does that peace allow me to enjoy myself more?" And as I continue to feel that peace: "How does that peace bring down my stress even more?" And: "How does that peace make me feel about smoking?"

End State

Once we have identified, and entered the end state energy, we will have a wholly different view of the problem that we once had. Whether we use the abbreviated version, of the full version, our frame of reference has changed.
