“Most of the problems and things that people do and bad feelings that they have, work automatically but they weren’t there when they were a baby. These are learned behaviours and when you hypnotically repattern someone what you are basically doing is teaching them not to get to what they don’t want to get. Archival memory systems always have to have up-datable memory where you put new information in front of old information.
So if you teach somebody a new way to respond it makes it so that it is easier because they never get to the bad system. Everything human beings learned will always be there but sometimes what you need to do is make a left turn on the cortical pathways and use a new learning. People should always be relearning things anyway.
The older we get the more millions and millions of neural cortical pathways we establish and there are many things that happen automatically, a handshake, kisses, all kinds of stuff, but it also includes people getting angry when it’s inappropriate or being afraid of things that are not really scary.
This is about using very deep trance tools to be able to make very pervasive changes across a wide range of behaviour to teach people the most important thing, which is to spend more time practicing feeling good than they do feeling bad so becomes a habit.
When I started Neuro Hypnotic Repatterning I decided that people were not having enough fun. It’s not that you’re not capable of it; it’s just that you are not using your neurology that way. I wanted to get people out of the personal jails that they build for themselves and then you’ll have greater freedom because ALL my work is about personal freedom” — Richard Bandler, creator of NHR.
NHR uses the hypnotic process to restructure experiences that people have at the neurological and chemical level. The only question is how much pleasure can you stand, how much excitement can you stand, how much success can you have?
You learn to saturate your neurology with the chemicals that make you feel good. Because if you get your whole body in the right state there’s just about nothing that you can’t do.
It isn’t enough to just help you get out of one bad feeling. NHR ensures that you get into a whole lot of other great feelings! NHR enables you to redesign the way you connect with yourself physically, mentally and to some extent spiritually.
Richard says: “Think of the many things people do, like being afraid or being depressed, a lot of these things create a chemical base in the body. NHR changes the way you have these feelings and changes responses before people get in the chemical bath of depression or suddenly getting angry or be afraid or shy. They have to start being shy at a certain point and if ahead of that you can get them to do something else … As our knowledge of the chemistry of the brain increases, so too will our ability to control it spiritually, mentally and physically. It is a great and wonderful new adventure as a new vista of knowledge unfolds before us.”
Business, sales, self-esteem, confidence, charisma, motivation, relaxation, parenting, relationships, addictions, phobias, certain ailments, anti-aging, weight loss and sports performance are just some of the areas that NHR can help you with.
