​Timeline Work, Patterning and Advanced Submodalities

You will learn how to detect and change the unconscious patterning in yourself and others that leads either to success or failure. You will learn how your mind codes information and experience. The learning in this module includes working with time; timeline reframing and reading the submodality accessing cues that others are always unconsciously communicating.

  • You’ll begin to master timeline work and how to use timelines to create powerful compelling futures that propel you towards your dreams.
  • You will discover how to use timelines to reframe painful past times into incredibly useful learning experiences.
  • You will also learn how you code time in your mind and gain the foundation skills to master your time – the ultimate time management skills.
  • You’ll learn how to use submodalities in an advanced way and truly run your brain, having the skills to make the unconscious thought that drives your experience far more conscious.
Identity and Beliefs

The processes in this module are the most powerful taught anywhere to remove the biggest barriers to your success, health, and happiness: your limiting beliefs.

You will learn the “magic questions” to ask that lead to the source of limiting beliefs. You’ll also learn how to use eye-accessing cues to pinpoint the causes of limiting beliefs, physical or emotional symptoms, or even positive strengths and values.

  • You’ll learn how to “re-imprint” experiences that resulted in limiting beliefs about yourself and replace undesired beliefs with empowering ones.
  • You will also learn how to integrate conflicting beliefs and belief systems for more wholeness and personal harmony.
  • You will be introduced to “Sleight of Mouth” language patterns to loosen limiting beliefs; as well as Re-imprinting and Belief Change models.
  • You will also learn the Foreground-Background Process—the NLP pattern that looks the most like “magic” for creating change, and that can lead to changes that seem like miracles.
  • You’ll also learn core questions—what you are unconsciously yet constantly paying attention to in your life in every situation and learn how to adjust them to maximize your success and happiness.
Modeling Human Excellence

NLP originated through its developers modeling highly effective people such as Virginia Satir, Milton Erickson, and Fritz Perls. Many innovations in NLP came from modeling other people who did some specific thing well.

  • You will learn how to identify exactly how someone does something with personal excellence, and learn the foundation skills for duplicating that excellence.
  • You will discover your own best strategies and learn more about your own patterning.
  • You will learn modeling processes such as the GEO; adopt a state, vision to action, and strategic modeling, which employs all the patterning skills in NLP.
