What is NLP—Neuro-Linguistic Programming?
NLP, short for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, deals with the subjective experience that individuals have in creating thoughts, feelings and emotions. In NLP, the question is always -how we do what we do, inside of our own mind -within our subjective experience! Subjectively, we can be experts at creating both postitive and negative experiences in our own head. A negative experience, for example, can be created by listening to the sound of an internal nagging voice, or by visualizing horrible pictures, or by holding a hard tense knot in the stomach. A practitioner of NLP can find out how a person does these things and then helps the person to change them.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is also used to teach positive and successful, subjective strategies, that are known to work for others. This can be done in most areas of life, not only those involving emotional issues or problems. For example, an NLP strategy to remember somebody’s name is to imagine that you have a with a big, white-board marker, and you are writing the name of this person on his forehead. Similarly, there are ways through NLP whereby you can make yourself feel more motivated, overcome phobias, feel happier and achieve your goals.
