WHAT IS NLP ?
NLP is Neuro-Linguistic Programming. It is about “mind”, the metaphor of our brain. It is about processing how do we structure our ‘subjective experience’. These are the psychic structures from the impacts of what do we receive through our five senses. This is the process of how do we create our ‘mental maps’ of the realities perceived through our unique filters – deletion, distortion, generalization, values, beliefs, attitudes, language, decisions, meta-programs etc.
NLP is about “neuro” – the study for understanding how our thinking and experiences cause neurological responses, states and chemistry in the body; also how our neurological maps are created.
It is about the study for understanding “linguistic” impacts and outcome – how do we use language to describe our world and ourselves to ourselves and others – how do we through language create experiences and meanings. Language is the primary medium for communicating with our mind.
And it is also about the study to understand our “programming” – unconscious, automatic, patterns and spontaneous unconscious responses which we can learn how to change and install. It is reprograming for enhancing our effectiveness.
NLP was developed by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. NLP provides study and practice of wisdom to attain effectiveness of mind. It is useful for human wellness and growth.
NLP deals with Communication model, Presuppositions of life, Prime-directives of mind, Conversational hypnosis, Overcoming psychological problems such as Phobias, Allergies, Limiting Decisions etc.
NLP is a trail of techniques that work, and these techniques focus on the results. NLP techniques enhance any skill, life-state or profession to new heights aspired for. These techniques can be used to turn our dreams into reality quickly and easily. NLP says, if a technique does not work try something else.
Dr.David J Lincoln, President of ANLP, India, calls Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) as the “user’s Manual for the brain”. NLP provides the application guidelines for using the brain for the desired outcomes.
