Quick & effective steps to easily change your feelings (part 1)
Copyright: Colin G Smith http://www.NLPToolBox.com/

Whenever we are experiencing problems it is due to our own feelings. If we keep feeling un-resourceful in the same situation this indicates our feelings have become habituated and we have had no choice in how we responded.

This will change though won't it because you can find yourself becoming curious about the new and simple technique below. ;)

People often have the intention to change their limiting feeling responses but unfortunately stay stuck in behavioural patterns by talking to themselves and others with "why?" questions. "Why do I keep feeling like this in that situation?!"
"Why can't I change?" etc.

Ooops! These kinds of thoughts tend to create neurotic loops.

Another way that is usually more useful (i.e. gets a desired outcome) is to modify the structure of the thought pattern.

If you think about it all of our thoughts can only be made up of the five senses. Visual, Sounds, Feelings, Smells, Tastes. Perhaps even so called subtle energy experienced in healing systems such as Reiki are still experienced by the mind within the five senses.

By becoming aware of some of the specific characteristics of a thought process enables us to then change that structure. For instance we could discover if the pictures we were making in our head were still pictures or movies in black & white or in full colour.

The following technique enables us to change our feelings by representing them in sounds. Please go ahead and check out the technique now, I'll give a little explanation afterwards.

The Musical Tempo Changer

1. Pick a situation where you get a certain feeling that limits your ability to respond with choice.

2. Become aware of the feelings in your body. Where do you feel the feelings? Notice how the feelings move.

3. If you were to allow yourself to represent the feelings in music what music would you hear? Simply let some music come to mind.

4. As you listen to the music inside your mind pay particular attention to the rhythm.

5. Now think of how you want to feel instead of the current feeling. What kind of rhythm represents that desired feeling? Now hear new music with that new rhythm.

6. Keep playing the new music in your head as you think of the situation you choose in step 1. Five to twenty seconds is usually enough.

OK, that's great, now think of something totally different like what did you have for breakfast yesterday?

And now think about the situation you selected in step 1 and notice how your feelings have changed.

By representing the feelings as music enabled us to become aware of a rhythmic structure. And because we associated that musical rhythm with our feelings they changed when we changed the rhythm!

Nice, simple and effective right?!

Now what would happen if you were to apply this technique on 3 other 'limitations.' Would your unconscious begin to learn the strategy and then begin to generalise the pattern into other areas of your life or would it begin to happen in your sleep and dreams instead?

Now WHY would that be a useful question to ask yourself now?
