Continue this process of doing or not doing the particular behaviors by adding more and more context that gets a person to do the behavior or disengage from it. With each step, identify the criterion it exemplifies. "What seems important enough to get you to violate the previous criterion?"

Doing this will elicit an outcome chain. When you reach the first criterion (A), inquire, "What stops you?" This will elicit some reverse or negative criterion (B).

Then recycle, "When would you do A even through it causes B?" This brings in the next higher level criterion (C). Negative examples in this process elicit more highly valued criteria. "When would you not do A even though it results in B or C?"

3. Identify the highest criterion and construct a hierarchy. Continue until you have the most important criterion. Make a continuum from the least to the most important criteria.

4. Identify sub modalities. Find the submodality differences between the least and the most important criteria. How do you represent "saving time/' "excellence," "safety of others/' etc.? Elicit see, hear, feel descriptions and especially the analogue submodalities that vary.

5. Put your criteria on a continuum. Determine how much you want to reduce a particular criterion, where you want it to be on the scale. Then shift the submodalities of that criterion so that it matches the submodalities of those at that lower place. Adjust the submodalities so that the criterion becomes coded for the degree of importance that you want it to have.

6. Ecology check, lake a meta-position and evaluate your hierarchy of values. Do they serve you well? Do they fall into an order that enables you to make good decisions, to create inner harmony? Any problems or mis-alignments? Identify the criterion you would like to change.

7. Shift criterion. Identify the criterion to be shifted and determine where you want it to end up. What order of values will gel you where you want to go?

8. Change submodalities. Slowly change the criterion to the appropriate place on your continuum. Give it the submodalities according to the importance you wish it to have. Notice the submodalities of the criterion before and after it. Code it appropriately.

9. Test. How does your value hierarchy look to you now? Will it help guide you into right behaviors and decisions?

10. Future pace. Think of a situation where the new criterion will make a difference to you and put yourself into that context and notice your experience.

#67 The Kinesthetic Hierarchy Of Criteria Pattern

1. Location 1. In this location, identify a behavior that the person wants to do, but does not do (e.g., to stop smoking).

2. Location 2. In this location, elicit the criteria and meta-outcomes that motivate the person's wants toward his or her desired outcome (e.g., the cessation of coughing). "Why do you want this?" "How do you value this as significant or important?"

3. location 3. In this location, find the criteria that stop the person from changing. "Wfaat stops you?" These values will represent higher level outcomes inasmuch as they stop the outcomes in the second location. Identify the criteria and meta-outcomes at this level (e.g., feeling relaxed, nurtured).

4. Location 4. In location 4, find a higher level criterion that can override the limiting criteria of step 3. What do you find more significant or so important that you would give up smoking even if the smoking triggers feelings of relaxation and nurturing? (e.g., feeling respected by your family). What do you hold as a value even more important than that (e.g., saving your life)?

5. Anchor 4. As the person continues to experience the fourth location of the highest values and criteria, amplify and anchor fully.

6. Transfer the highest values. Holding the anchor assist the person to step back into location 3, "...noticing what you think-and-feel in this state with this (fire anchor) resource." Do the same as you walk with the person to locations 2 and 1. This pattern accesses the person's highest criterion and applies it to the prior states. It communicates, "Since you value saving your life, bring those thoughts-emotions (values) to bear on this previous state, and this one."

7. Transfer the submodality codings downward. Since wre now take the criterion of the highest level, along with its submodality codings, into location 3, 2, and 1, as you walk the person through, ask them to identify new ways for them to achieve their desired outcome. "How else could you feel relaxed and nurtured and still stop smoking?" As they notice the submodal-ities of each stale, have them fine tune and adjust them with the submodality codings of the highest experience.

8. Keepi amplifying. As you use the person's driver submodali-ties of his or her highest value and apply to each lower level, make each lower state more and more compelling. Also, as you move into each lower location, check to see if the person has the driving Meta-programs of the highest level criterion also.

9. Future pace and check for ecology.

A Disquistion On The Evils Of Using Tobacco

A Disquistion On The Evils Of Using Tobacco

Among the evils which a vitiated appetite has fastened upon mankind, those that arise from the use of Tobacco hold a prominent place, and call loudly for reform. We pity the poor Chinese, who stupifies body and mind with opium, and the wretched Hindoo, who is under a similar slavery to his favorite plant, the Betel but we present the humiliating spectacle of an enlightened and christian nation, wasting annually more than twenty-five millions of dollars, and destroying the health and the lives of thousands, by a practice not at all less degrading than that of the Chinese or Hindoo.
