Beliefs are essentially judgments and evaluations about ourselves, others and the world around us. In NLP, beliefs are considered to be closely held generalizations about 1) causation, 2) meaning and 3) boundaries in (a) the world around us, (b) our behavior, (c) our capabilities and (d) our identities. The statements, The shifting of continental plates causes earthquakes, and God's wrath causes earthquakes, for instance, would reflect different beliefs about cause in the world around us. Statements such as Pollen causes allergies, It is unethical to conceal information, It is not possible for a human to run a mile in less than four minutes, I will never be successful because I am a slow learner, and Behind every behavior is a positive intention, all represent beliefs of one form or another.
C causes D (cause-effect) e.g., Allergens cause allergies. e.g., Can people be around an allergen and not have an allergy1 e.g., Can someone have an allergic reaction even though no allergy is present Finding counter examples often leads us to a deeper understanding of the phenomenon we are considering, and helps to enrich our 'map' of the territory. Often, there is a superficial validity to certain generalizations (like the relationship between frowning and unhappiness or allergens and allergies), but the deeper processes to which they refer are, in fact, much more complex. Keep in mind that, because beliefs are linked with deep level neurology, a change in beliefs by finding a counter example can often produce immediate and dramatic effects. Finding counter examples, for instance, is the core of the NLP Allergy Technique (which involves finding something as similar as possible to the allergen, but which does not produce the allergic reaction).
This woman was in her early thirties and had been struggling with this compulsion for more than fifteen years. Of course, people had tried many times to convince her that this belief system was crazy always to no avail. 1 took the time to get rapport with her, and to find out about her 'criterial equivalences' and reality strategies. Then, at a certain point, I said, You know, all your life you have been trying to get rid of the fleas. You have always tried to wash them off and make them go away. Maybe that's an ineffective way to deal with them. Has anybody ever treated your 'real imaginary' allergy to the 'real imaginary' fleas I explained that her situation matched all the symptoms of an allergy. Some people, for instance, have an allergy to pollen in the air they can't see pollen but it gets in their noses and they feel bad. Instead of having to hide from the pollen, wash it off, or make it go away, however, these people can use medicines that treat their immune system to reduce...
This approach will also work well in a supermarket. It's unique, different, funny, direct, and fun and romantic for you and her. I discovered another great supermarket pick-up totally by accident. I was suffering through another attack of hay-fever during allergy season, so I went to the local Osco drug store to get something for it. As I was walking along I spied an incredible honey wearing very tight jeans and an equally tight T-shirt. As I walked by her, I had to sneeze, but the sneeze wouldn't come out, so I paused right next to her as I struggled to sneeze. I noticed her looking at me, and instantly my magnificently sleazy brain phonied up a scam.
For instance, if you believe that an allergy is caused by an external allergen, then you will try to avoid that allergen. If you believe an allergy is caused by the release of histamine, then you will take an antihistamine If you believe an allergy is caused by stress, then you will attempt to reduce stress, and so on.
