The Pattern

1. Identify the desired experience. What way of thinking, feeling, speaking, behaving, relating, etc., would you like to obtain for yourself? Fully describe this desired experience in descriptive (see, hear, feel) terms.

2. Give yourself full permission to step into the desired frame and pretend to experience it fully. This step plays a crucial role for those who have set the frame (in terms of believing, valuing, deciding) that somehow "pretending is a bad thing," "pretending is a fake thing," etc.

3. Construct the "as if frame and step into it fully. Pretend that you can step into that experience. What wrould you hear...feel... say to yourself... ? How would you experience that state physiologically? What would someone else see as they look at you? What submodalities operate in that experience?

4. Run an evaluation check. At this point don't worry about your emotions, i.e., what it feels like. It will feel "weird, strange, uncomfortable, not-me, etc. Evaluate the experience in terms of its usefulness, what you can learn from it, how it might empower some aspect of your life, etc.

5. Future pace. Suppose you took this way of thinking, feeling, acting, etc., into your future, and go out a year, five years

6. Permit yourself to use the "as if' frame until it becomes installed. If you like the benefits and consequences of the experience, give yourself permission to keep trying it on and experimenting with it and to do so until it habituates as your style of responding.
