Where It All Comes From

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Have you ever wondered who beats your heart, who flows your blood, who keeps you breathing when you sleep?

What’s your phone number? Most people can answer this question without blinking. But where does the information come from? You don’t have to consciously remember your phone number all the time. The information goes out of your awareness until you need it, at which time, you can usually easily retrieve it.

How do you get in and out of a room? Through the door. How do you know how to operate it? Because you learned. Not only that, you learned once, and now you know how to open ALL doors, not only the one you learned with. Where is that knowledge stored? Do you even have to think about all the necessary steps to open a door? Probably not! You could open a dorr while thinking about something totally different.

The unconscious mind is that part of us that we are not conscious about, i.e we don’t have the faintest idea that it’s even here! But, as the immersed part of the iceberg, it is monumental. All our behaviours have their source at the unconscious level.

If you are over 30 years old, watch the 4 seconds video below (a very funny illustration of this). If you are below 30, don’t bother, you probably won’t get it.

The solution to many of the issues that bother us is to increase communication between the conscious/rational mind, and the unconscious.

Handling Conflict

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Sometimes, mis­un­der­stand­ing arises when we do not under­stand other people’s map of the world, or in other words, when we can­not put our­selves in their shoes. Each person reacts to the other, the sit­u­a­tion esca­lates, emo­tions inten­sify, and the chance of reach­ing a mutu­ally ben­e­fi­cial agree­ment dis­ap­pears in a puff of smoke.

One of the most effective ways to solve conflicts is to be able to see the other person’s perspective. Many times, this is all that is needed to defuse tension, initiate a different mind-frame, and open the path to a solution to the conflict or argument.

Whether you’re prepar­ing for a meet­ing, deal­ing with fam­ily mem­bers, sell­ing, nego­ti­at­ing, coach­ing, or giv­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion, the abil­ity to consciously choose the perspective you want to have on the situation massively increases the like­li­hood of success. This is what in NLP we call ‘Perceptual Positions’, i.e. different perspective from which you perceive a situation or problem which involves several people.

In this short audio, I’ll take you through the 3 Perceptual Positions. Leave comments at the bottom of this page if you have any. Click on the little arrow below to start the audio player.

If I told you that…

… the human unconscious mind has an irresistible need for closure, you’d understand why you have felt an involuntary, maybe overwhelming urge to keep going after you read the title of this post.

In 1927, Gestalt psychologist Kurt Lewin noticed that waiters has a much clearer recollection of still unpaid orders. His student at the time, Russian psychologist Blyuma Zeigarnik went on to study the phenomenon. What she found is: People remember incomplete tasks much more easily than completed ones. This is now called the “Zeigarnik effect“.

Want to know the whole story? Watch the short video below. And if you want to become a master communicator, check out the NLP Practitioner and Coach Certification training in March. This is part of what we’ll learn.

You may not know, but the 20th Century had its very own Merlin the Wizard.

His name was Milton Erickson, Dr. Milton Erickson. Dr. Erickson was a trained medical doctor and a hypnotherapist who had absolutely prodigious results with his patients.

The funny thing is: everyone thought that Erickson was a nice old man who said funny things. He would speak to his clients about tomatoes and their problems would disappear! But then videotapes were invented, and people started to realise what Dr. Erickson was doing. There are many things we learned about communication from Dr. Erickson (I will reveal what in subsequent articles), and what I want to focus on today is his most astonishing observation skill.
