The Pattern

1. Access an unresourceful state. Invite, elicit, or just catch a person in, a negative state and set an anchor for it. To do this with their conscious awareness, invite them to talk about it while including the qualities of their sights, sounds, sensations.

2. Break state. Stop, interrupt and have them set that state aside.

3. Access a resourceful state. Ask the person to think about the state that they would prefer to operate from. "What would you like to experience when in that situation?" Describe it fully: "What would you see, hear, feel, smell, taste? What words would you say to yourself?"

4. Amplify and anchor. As the person accesses the resourceful state, have him or her double the size of their pictures, to make the voice stronger and more intense, or to make whatever submodality shift they need to do to amplify the state. When they eventually reach a peak in this resourceful state, anchor it.

5. Again break state.

6. Fire off the unresourceful anchor and then immediately fire off the resourceful anchor. Hold each anchor and let the neurological processing continue—asking the person to "just experience this state fully." Hold the positive ¿mchor longer than the negative anchor.

7. Test your work. After you have broken state again, fire the anchor for the unresourceful state or ask the person to try and recall their previous negative state to see if it returns. If it does not, you have succeeded in collapsing that anchor.

8. Refresh the resourceful anchor. As a good ecology process, go back and re-access the resourceful state, making it stronger, brighter, bigger, or whatever submodality amplification intensifies it, and re-anchor it.
