Anchoring refers to the process of capturing a specific state with a specific trigger. With anchoring you can isolate and manoeuvre portions of FA at different contexts. An anchor acts as a trigger or switch for a state. The premise is, if at the peak of a state a sensory anchor is applied, the two become linked. An anchor can be a touch, a movement, a tonal quality. It must be unique, distinct and induced at the peak of a state to be successful. In NLP, Practitioners use anchoring to capture resource states either from a client’s personal history or present state with the intent of linking them to present and future contexts, where the resources would be needed. The co-creators of NLP noticed Milton Erickson and Virginia Satir did this process using tonal anchors. The theory of anchoring is often explained as stimulus response theory, which grew from Pavlov’s work. The NLP Practitioner can also anchor natural states as they arise in a client so that the Practitioner can enable the client to access these states later in the session or in later sessions.
Elicitation of TimeLine 1
One of the first things to do when conducting TimeLine work is to discover how your client organises their submodalities of time. It will be useful if you have also elicited an involuntary unconscious signal. As you elicit a TimeLine, calibrate the client’s non-verbal behaviour.
TimeLines emerged in NLP in the early 1980s. TimeLines emerged through different sources. Leslie Cameron Bandler while researching NLP Meta Programs made the distinction in people who are “Through Time” and others who are “In Time” (see NLP Meta Programs). John Grinder and Robert Dilts (through separate and independent research) developed the idea of a spatial TimeLine, where people walked backwards into representations from the past and forwards into representations of the future. The spatial TimeLine is a powerful metaphor for linear (temporal) association of memories. The spatial TimeLine forms the basis of powerful NLP interventions designed to resolve limiting beliefs and situations with heavy emotional content, which are past-memory driven.
A statement from John Grinder regarding strategies in NLP
Overlap is process for helping people access a representational system they under-use or have difficultly accessing.
Representational system characteristics
The descriptions below are characteristics of each system. Consider the descriptions as generalisations of how people process and respond when in a particularly representational system mode. Most people will go into different modes throughout the day. Some people will be highly dominant in one system and hardly use another system. Others are more balanced and will respond in different systems depending on context.
Bateson on Logical Levels
In his work Steps to Ecology of Mind, Gregory Bateson references Bertrand Russell and his theory of Logical Types for how human beings learn and organise experiences. Russell’s and Bateson’s work inspired logical levels and chunking in NLP. Bateson used the terms logical type and logical level interchangeably and in Whispering in the Wind, Bostic and Grinder offer clear definitions.
Logical level: The levels in a hierarchy generated by logical inclusion, in the hierarchy. In the hierarchy above kayaks, yachts, ocean liners are said to be on the same level based on the premise they are the set members that fall within the set of boats (level above) that adhere to the overall set membership rule of floating.
Neuro Linguistic Programming began its life early in the 1970s when an Associate Professor from the University of California, Santa Cruz, John Grinder, teamed up with an undergraduate, Richard Bandler. Both men had a fascination with human excellence which charted a path for them to model behavioural patterns of selected geniuses.
Modelling is the core activity in NLP, and is the process of extricating and replicating the language structure and behavioural patterns of an individual who is excellent at a given activity.
The annual NLP conference is being held from the 9 – 11 November 2012 in London. Michael Carroll will be running a session on ‘The secrets behind creating a profitable NLP business’ on Saturday 10th see this link. http://www.nlpconference.co.uk/session_details.php?session_id=797
