Emotional States

The Art Of Managing Neuro-Linguistic States

Emotions—sometimes we love them, sometimes we hate them! Sometimes they put us in some highly resourceful and creative places; sometimes they make life a living hell. Emotions, probably more than anything else, typically drive us to seek help. Life may be "going to hell in a handbasket," but many (perhaps the majority of us) don't do anything about it until we feel the need! Typically, we let things go, and keep trying the same solutions that don't work(!), allowing the problems to continue to grow to unmanageable proportions. By then, we usually have put ourselves into some very negative, and self-reinforcing, emotional states. Does this sound familiar?

The patterns in this chapter address the subject of our emotional states. Here we will especially focus on the negative ones (e.g., stress, anger, fear, regret, guilt)—those primary emotional states that, when they become too intense, prevent good thinking, problem-solving, presence of mind, etc. These emotional states represent the very opposite of resourcefulness; they represent unresourcefulness.

The NLP model centrally addresses these "states" of consciousness (or mind-body states). And because states involve both thoughts-and-emotions—and indeed we cannot have one without the other—we describe them ¿is neuro-linguistic states. This reminds us of the two "royal roads" to state: mind (linguistics) and body (neurology, physiology). In this chapter, you will discover some cutting-edge human technology for recognizing, managing, and transforming emotional states.

Hynotism and Self Hypnosis

HYPNOTISM is by no means a new art. True, it has been developed into a science in comparatively recent years. But the principles of thought control have been used for thousands of years in India, ancient Egypt, among the Persians, Chinese and in many other ancient lands. Miracles of healing by the spoken word and laying on of hands are recorded in many early writings.
