Michael Breen and I have recently completed a new teleseminar training on one of the most useful and valuable skills in NLP… being able to create change entirely conversationally (i.e. without the use of overt NLP techniques).

Click on the picture above to find out more.

The fact is many students people have studied sleight of mouth and have learnt about change techniques YET aren’t able to use the wonderful tools of NLP easily in NORMAL conversations at work, at home, with your friends or clients.

This training helps address that.

It covers:

  • How to translate overt NLP techniques into conversational change patterns
  • How it’s possible to generate ALL of the sleight of mouth patterns from the Meta Model & Framing Tool
  • What are the attitudes & beliefs of master conversational change agents that transform how you interact with others
  • How to do change work when working with family and friends (so the welcome your help and the results)
  • Outlines the 4 models are essential for doing elegant change work
  • And much more
  • So check out this new training resource here.

    Michael shares distinctions and advanced NLP material never talked or taught publicly before.

    NLP Meta Model

    Think about this…

    Buddha once said:

    “Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”

    2011 has been a year filled with much uncertainty globally. I’m sure many people will be happy to see it end. Many others worry what 2012 will bring.

    Yet the opportunity to proper and stay centered in any environment exists when you clear your mind and untangle the knots that accumulate on the inside.

    That’s what we as practitioners of NLP do. We’re not just people helpers, change agents, problem solvers… we are reality changers.

    How To Change “Reality”

    There are few resources I know better and that I rely on myself to change reality, to…
    * Clear up confusion
    * Eliminate hesitation
    * Transform doubt
    * Keep me focused

    Than the updated Meta Model and Framing Tool.

    In fact when you learn how to use these two powerful models conversationally and habitually, all manner of transformations, realisations and possibilities unfold in front of you.

    Right in front of your very eyes. It’s like a fog that has been encompassing you lifts and you get, perhaps for the first time, how some narrative or unconscious thought processes has been affecting your entire life.

    And then you pop.

    Reality has shifted.

    And you realise that you no longer need to re-act that way. And your life improves right there. Or the life of your client, when you help them.

    An Expert Strategy Made Easy

    However most NLPers never get to experience this kind of transformation, not because they can’t but because they don’t know the expert’s way to use the tool set that makes magical things possible.

    The good news is that it no longer needs to be that way.

    Because we’ve already captured the process to do “reality changing” for you. You’ll discover how inside this unique training called Language Guru Mastering The Meta Model.

    Will Durant once said: “Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.”

    I really like that definition. It sums up that education is an ongoing process, that the smart student is always realising there is more to learn, more to be discovered…

    Like how to apply NLP in a business without all the NLP jargon, which is something many NLPers seem unable to do. Not because they didn’t have lots of NLP training, but rather because the manner in which the learnt the technology.

    You see it’s no secret that human beings love instant gratification and step-by-step procedures to follow. It makes it much easier not to have to think. (And not thinking isn’t necessarily a bad thing).

    However not thinking does come at a cost… not knowing how the technology really works.

    So many students:

    • Don’t know how to use NLP easily in the business environments.
    • Don’t know how the TOTE model, sub-modalities, strategies, the Meta Model etc all link up to create one coherent model.
    • Don’t know how to create change or persuade a client, boss or vendor conversationally.

    And that kinds of sucks.

    (Think about it, if you spent a lot of money on traditional NLP trainings wouldn’t it be nice to be able to use it in the environment you spend at least 8 hours a day in. I know I would.)

    So the question then becomes…

    Is it possible to use NLP in business without all the jargon?


    Is it possible to learn how to do much of this without having to spend tens of thousands of dollars/pounds/Euros?


    It all starts with just a few changes…

    • A few changes in the thinking heuristic you use…
    • A few changes in how you go about formulating your goals…
    • A few changes in how you act in business contexts

    And that’s what our new course an Introduction to Using NLP in Business is all about.

    You don’t need to restart your training. You can build on the skills you already have and go much, much further.

    And if you are entirely new to NLP this course will be a HUGE benefit to you.

    NLP is a very powerful technology that can be used to create lasting change and help improve your life in countless ways, when you apply it. And therein lies the challenge for many. The common questions go: “How can I use the technology of NLP on myself to make desirable changes? Which techniques should I use?, I can’t get myself motivated..” etc. etc.

    After many questions and requests from visitors and customers about how one can use the technology on oneself, Michael and I decided to create a new “inner game” training program, called “Using NLP on Yourself To Create More Of The Life You Want”.

    The program provides timely solutions to a host of common challenges people face and how to apply the attitude and distinctions of NLP to yourself to change unwanted feelings, unstick unhelpful emotions, setup new patterns of behaviour and much much more.

    What is one of the biggest problems when learning NLP?

    Finding good resources that can help you get the kind of results you want. I’ve spent decades researching, buying, attending, using and applying all kinds of resources.

    One area where there is a near complete ‘gap’ is helping people learn inexpensively advanced NLP skills like Conversational Trance, Priming, Unconscious Installation and Nested Loops.

    But I’m pleased to say not anymore.

    After using the feedback from hundreds of NLPers on what you wanted covered, Master Trainer Michael Breen and I have just completed a new “Advanced NLP” training product.

    It’s designed to help anyone who wants to get a grip on some of the most advanced skills of NLP, and do so in a very clear, straight forward way.

    Figuring out what technique you can use is one of the trickier challenges many NLPers face. The exact number of techniques vary from over 200 to over ten thousand, according to some sites. So the question becomes how can I decide what to use, when?

    The answer to this is easier than most people realize.

    Firstly, all of the techniques of NLP are made up of only a handful of core patterns, which have been used over and over in slightly different ways. So there really aren’t several hundred, or indeed thousands of entirely unique techniques. Often what is described as a “new technique” is really just a variation or expansion of an old one.

    Keeping things simple:

    Human beings only have five senses, of which we have two primary modes of using them… internal representations and external representations.

    For example with visual sensory system, i.e. stuff you can see, we can either 1) see something external to us (we call that visual external) or we can 2) imagine in our minds seeing something (we call that visual internal). The same applies to each of the other sensory systems. Yes there are some core nuisances to understand about each sensory system (sub-modalities for example) and about how human beings wire things up and create their experience of reality (which is outside the scope of this post but covered in our Platinum Audio News Club), but the reality is there are only a core set of patterns that drive all the techniques.

    Asking a different kind of question:

    Even if you don’t know yet what these are, how can you decide what technique to use with yourself or others?

    Ask yourself this question:
    What is the function I am looking for, in order to achieve my desired state?

    You see, broadly speaking, all of the work we do with NLP could be described as the process of:

    * Quantifying and qualifying the desired state (DS) followed by the present state (PS)
    * Identifying what resources you need to move from the present state to the desired state
    * Then applying those resources and modifying your approach based on the feedback

    So let’s say that you have had some trauma in the past and every time you think of X event you instantly start feeling scared/angry/tearful etc. (PS)

    Well, one of the basic rules of thumb in NLP is, if you want to feel something more you associate into it, but when you want to feel something less intensely, it is generally wise to disassociate from it.

    So let’s apply that rule of thumb to this situation. If you experienced some trauma and it is still bothering you, but wish it didn’t, you want to feel neutral about it (DS), it is a good idea is to disassociate from it.

    So now that we know the function that we want (disassociation), we can pick up any NLP technique book and start scanning for NLP techniques that primarily use the function of dissociation to create the end effect.

    A quick scan of any pattern book we find techniques like:

    * The triple dissociation technique
    * The resolving internal conflict pattern
    * The advanced visual squash pattern
    * The dis-identification pattern
    * Change personal history pattern
    * Various time-lining patterns such as the re-imprinting technique
    * Etc. etc

    As you can see, there are numerous NLP techniques that function on a pattern of dissociation, which we can leverage for our purpose of un-sticking a traumatic experience.

    Get it?

    Rather than asking “what technique should I use?” ask yourself “what function am I looking for?”, then use the technique books of NLP to identify patterns that provide that function. Once you have found them start using those techniques on the problem state.

    Change Vectors: Giving yourself even more options…

    One point worth noting is that the function you choose will be dependent on the description you use, the frame of reference you have created to describe the “problem state”.

    Without going into a lot of detail, in NLP we have multiple ways of describing a problem state. Some will be more useful than others in certain situations. Using the example of overcoming a trauma we could describe it reporting on the:

    • sensory patterns, e.g. visual representation, associated, very close etc.
    • strategy syntax, e.g. Ve -> Vir -> K-
    • meta-programs patterns, e.g. associated, past oriented, re-active etc.
    • language patterns e.g. every time, always, never (universals), life, freedom, frozen (nomilizations) etc.
    • state patterns e.g. anxiety, fear, helplessness etc. which are embodied as rush of energy starting in the pit of their stomach and moving up their throat etc.
    • physiology patterns: fast breathing, shortness of breath, off-balance etc.

    Here we have six different descriptions we could use to go about transforming the PS to the DS. If you primarily describe it as a sub-modality issue (too much associated) then what function you will use will be different that if you primarily describe it as a strategy problem vs. say a state problem.

    In reality you are actually describing the same effect (the traumatic responses) but doing it from different angles. So now you have multiple “change vectors”, to go about transforming the PS.

    If we now ask the question “What’s the function?” that will help us move the PS description to the DS, we have many more options… as seen below:

    • The sensory patterns – we can use a dissociation pattern, as already outlined above.
    • The strategy syntax – prevent the strategy from running or re-engineer the old one
    • The Meta Programs patterns – use the Meta Program change pattern to become dissociated, at choice, present time frame oriented
    • The language patterns – use the Meta Model and Sleight of Mouth patterns to “bust up” the generalization and way the person is binding their trauma experience
    • The state patterns – use kinesthetic swish or “dissociate and spin the feelings” pattern
    • The physiology patterns – break their state e.g. get their heart pumping, evoke powerful resource states and collapse the negative anchor.

    As you can see there are many vectors you can transform the problem state from. Some will get you further than others, combined you have a very powerful combination of interventions to get you or your clients to results.

    Making it practical:

    Starting today, start training yourself to ask:

    What’s the function that is needed to transform the present state to the desired state?

    Once you are clear on the function you are looking for, then use the many NLP techniques, frameworks and tools to get yourself to the desired result.
