Neuro Linquistic Programming (NLP)
What is NLP? To better understand NLP we must break it down in to its smaller elements. It is the study of the subjective experience. The study of communication. It is coding how we store and process. It is how we encode the experience and bring it back. NEURO or neurology is a study of experiences that we have encoded. Consider our skin. Our skin holds us together with neurons.
Neuro refers to our nervous system/mind and how it processes information and codes it as memory inside our very body/neurology.
By neuro we refer to experience as inputted, processed, and ordered by our neurological mechanisms and processes.
Linguistic is both verbal and non-verbal; it is all behavior. For example, “You cannot not communicate.” How do we communicate? We communicate internally, externally, non-verbally and verbally. Linguistic indicates that the neural processes of the mind come coded, ordered, and given meaning through language, communication systems, and various symbolic systems (grammar, mathematics, music, icons).
In NLP we talk about two primary language systems. First, the “mind” processes information in terms of pictures, sounds, feelings, tastes and smells (sensory-based information) via the “representational systems.” Second, “mind” processes information via the secondary-language system of symbols words, metaphors, etc.
Programming refers to our ability to organize these parts (sights, sounds, sensations, smells, tastes, and symbols or words) within our mind-body organism which then enable us to achieve our desired outcomes. These parts comprise the programs we run in side our brain. Taking control of one’s own mind describes the heart of NLP.is a predictable systematic kind of way that holds unlimited power. NLP is a methodology of learning and leaving behind a trail of techniques. It is a study of how to use the language that is most efficacious to consistently achieve our specific desired outcomes.
