The Swish Pattern

Concept. Since "brains go places" and take us to thoughts-and-feelings that may create problematic and limiting states, the Swish Pattern enables us to identify the cues that swish the brain to go wherever it goes. Detecting these then enables us to re-direct our brain so that it goes to somewhere more useful and productive. This pattern can change the way we feel and behave.

"Mind" (consciousness) operates as our information processing mechanism with the languages of "mind":

i. our representational systems with their sub-modality qualities ii. the linguistic map involving the digital symbols of words, sentences, etc.

iii.the physiological system of breathing, posture, facial expressions, etc.

We deal with reality indirectly through map representations. Therefore our responses to the world (emotions, behaviors, etc.="patterns") arise from our model of the world. Change that model, and we change ourselves, our responses, our emotions, our patterns.

We elicit "states" of consciousness by responding to specific stimuli (external or internal; remembered or imagined). Taking charge of our states (state management) involves actively "running our own brain" by using the languages of "mind."

The Swish Pattern represents an especially generative pattern. If you think about "the behavior that would change the old response," you program in a specific action or response. But if you think about "the me for whom this would no longer operate as a problem" you send your consciousness to a more powerful, positive, and confident You—or self-image.

The neuro-dynamic principle behind this pattern involves the fact that brains move away from unpleasantness (pain) and toward pleasure. So, whenever we attach a "pleasure" meaning to a stimulus, we program ourselves to move toward that "pleasure." Tn this way, we directionalize our consciousness and wire it neurologically. Often these pathways outlast their value. Generally, we always make our best choice at that moment.

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.
