NLP Concepts And Methods

Aug 27, 2007
Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP is based upon the theory that we see, feel, and react to the world around us due to our perceptions of the world. This theory further expounds upon the concept that our perceptions are molded by our value and belief systems, and our experiences, and the conclusions we draw from them. The brain is where all of this gets sorted to form our perceptions, but sometimes the information becomes jumbled and that then jumbles our perceptions. The brain operates on several levels, some of which are autonomous functions and some of which are manual functions.

Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques seek to balance the information from our value and belief systems and experiences against the reality of the world around us, not just as we initially perceive that reality to be. This is useful for changing problematic perceptions that inhibit a person from seeing their purpose in the world and from finding any joy from living. Jumbled perceptions can also limit a person from reaching their goals of success and from forming loving relationships with others.

Mental disorders and criminal and addictive behaviors are also believed to be in large part due to jumbled perceptions. NLP methods have been shown to be helpful for a full range of emotional, social, and workplace issues.

Another concept of Neuro Linguistic Programming is that we are not one dimensional beings, but rather that we are three dimensional beings in which our minds, bodies, and spirits work in conjunction as one, and because the three have conjoined functioning, the health of one affects the other two. Discussions about NLP can be hard to follow because of the scientific and medical terms that are used. This has resulted in a lot of misconceptions about it and consequently being reported as truths on the subject.

Using various methods within Neuro Linguistic Programming a person can learn how to imitate more positive perceptions. As the learning process continues, imitation becomes habit and then it becomes a routine way of perceiving the world as well as themself in a more positive light. With NLP methods a person can learn to focus inward for the positive energy forces that reside within each of us.

Some methods focus on the sensory aspects of our perceptions. The three senses most often focused on in NLP training are sight, sound, and touch. Verbal and nonverbal communications are the focus of other methods. While still other Neuro Linguistic Programming methods focus in on conscious and subconscious thought levels. The goal of any method is to help a person to retrain their thinking, feeling, and responding actions from negative to positive. The purpose for this is so that people can live positively and experience positive thoughts from such living.

Further goals of NLP methods are intended to help people to unlock tools they already posses to look at the challenges of life as life lessons and not punishments, to realize that they are the actors that generate the experiences they encounter in life, to achieve greater success and to build lasting and meaningful relationships.

The full encyclopedia of Neuro Linguistic Programming concepts and methods fills several volumes, and new volumes are added on a regular basis as concepts and methods are found to be helpful in other areas. Whether you have a professional interest in the subject or just a personal curiosity, it is an intriguing field to say the least. Just reading some of the plentiful materials on differnt concepts and methods broadens your mind and hopefully inspires you to be more open to new concepts and new ways to see and think.
