Learn To Make Your Submodalities Work For You!

As human beings, we make sense of the world through our five senses ... sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. This is the information used to make up our internal representations of the world.

What this means is that every thought, memory or use of imagination, contains information from our senses. So, it may comprise pictures, sounds, feelings, smells or taste.
Furthermore, the information from our five senses contains lots of different qualities and distinctions.

So for example a picture can be moving or still, bright or dim, black and white or colour, a good or poor contrast, 3-D of flat just for starters ... which only takes in the distinctions made using sight ... there are four other senses we use everyday as well!

If you haven't heard about Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), you may never have given much thought to how you code information in your brain. NLP has a name for the finer distinctions of our senses – submodalities. Its not something we usually think about, but it's extremely valuable to know about.

It's valuable to know about submodalities, because it's possible to use them to modify and / or change how our memories are coded in our brains and as a result change the meaning of the memory.

By making changes to the coding, memories and imaginings about the future can be made more or less intense, positive or negative, more desirable or less real.
Have you ever had the experience of thinking about a past event, or suddenly remembering something and feeling intense unpleasant feelings?

It may be that you have a fear of something, and some kind of trigger, a word, smell or sound etc may set you off, so that you experience all those unpleasant feelings as if they're really happening in that moment.

NLP, has a range of techniques, which can be used to reduce or eradicate the intensity of remembered experiences. Its possible to take an unpleasant memory, examine how it's coded and then make changes so that it's no longer unpleasant and the emotion just drains away.

You can also learn to be aware of the impact of how you code experience for yourself.

In it's simplest form working with submodalities can allow you, if you choose, to take something that has unpleasant feelings associated and allow those unpleasant feelings to drain away as if they never existed in the first place.

The best way to learn about submodalities is to experience them.
Try the following:

Find a quiet place ... or even better a quiet place with a committed friend to talk you through the process.

Have a think about something that's unpleasant or uncomfortable for you, like something that annoyed you recently.

When you think about it do you have a picture?

If so, where i
s the picture located, is it near or far? - If it’s near make it far and if its far, make it near. How does that feel? Place the picture wherever if feels best.

You could make other changes to the picture, try turning the brightness up or down, if its black or white make it colour and vice versa.

Do you see yourself in the picture, your whole body? (Disassociated) Or are you re-living it, as if through your own eyes (Associated)

Generally speaking when an event has unpleasant emotions for us attached to it, you'll be associated into the picture ... that is it'll be as if you're re-living the event as if you were really there, feeling the feelings, experiencing the experiences.

From this place of being in it ... move yourself to a place where it feels like you're watching yourself in a movie ... to the point where it seems as if
you're watching yourself on a screen.

Are there any important sounds to go with the picture?

If there is a voice, try changing it to something funny, perhaps Donald Duck, or a really sexy husky voice!

You can turn the volume up or down, make the tonality and quality clearer and even change where the sounds are coming from.

Again just play around to see what changes make the memory more pleasant.
Think about the feelings that go with the memory ... Where are they located?

Try, moving the feelings to somewhere else, say your little toe.
If they're moving, try making them still or vice versa.

What shape are the feelings? You could make them into a pink, fuzzy, vibrating ball, the size of an apple pip, located in your little toe!!

Notice the change in how they feel as you play around with them.

You'll notice that the funnier and more unreal you make this 'movie' the less intense the unpleasant feelings will be ... eventually you'll get to a point where the whole thing is feelingless ... if that's a word ... or even comedic.

It's at that point you'll find you'll be able to leave that unpleasant event behind you and move forward in your life with grace and ease.

Love to know how you get on! Leave a comment below.

Love life and live it creatively and on purpose!

3 Ways You Can Manifest Money Quickly and Easily

The words quick and easy don’t seem believable when it comes to manifesting money. A lot of people have the mindset that if you want money it has to come with hard work.

It may just be true that hard works is necessary however it all depends on what sort of hard work you need to engage in, to manifest money quickly and easily.

The whole concept of manifesting requires a deep understanding of not only your relation to your physical reality but also to yourself and your alignment with what you want.

You know when you're in alignment with something by the way you feel when you focus upon it. If you feel joyful then you've opened yourself up to the flow of the creative force to pour great magnetism into you.
Attracting money is the same.

1. Attracting Money is Being Happy
Everyone who has been successful in manifesting great wealth will repeat this one mantra, 'Do what you love and money will come.' This is the first way.

There is a deeper scientific reason for this which goes just beyond the share joy of loving what you do. Although that’s important there's another reason. When you're enjoying what you do you move into a divine flow that empowers your intention.

2. Attracting Money is Being Bold
The second way to attracting money quickly is to remove fear from the equation of your desire and move into boldness. Too often people are unsure of what they want. When you're certain of your desires your mental image will also be clear and therefore easier to manifest.

3. Attracting Money is Being in the Feelings

The third step is the ability to increase magnetism of your desire bye getting into the feelings of already having ... so that what you want comes to you. This is the true essence of manifesting.

The more you feel 'As if you have ... ' the more magnetic you can be, the more charge there is between you and what you desire.

The secret to manifesting are in the right techniques.

Manifesting is all about technique.

Love life and live it creatively and on purpose!

First Step to a Manifesting Life

Manifestation is the act or product of bringing about change through the direction of consciousness.

I bet like me, you know at least one person that seems to have everything they could ever dream of! Someone who's great at the act of Manifestation ... they just seem to think of something and there it is ... that or something even better!

And I bet also like me there are times when you may even have felt a little jealous of those people because it appears they have everything's with minimal effort as though they were born ‘lucky’.
True or true?

So, it's probably time you understood that the power of manifestation lies within each of us and it's up to you to learn more about it.

Manifestation is merely knowledge and skill.
Manifesting is no different to any other skill. Skills like playing a musical instrument or making gourmet meals require time and commitment to learn and practice. So too does the skill of manifesting.

How good you get, depends on how well you learn the skill and how well you apply it.
Even though some of us are better at some skills, doesn't mean the rest of us, with practice, can't improve or even surpass the talent expressed by another.

Some people seem to have learned to manifest so well they often don't even realize they do it. It just seems ‘natural’ like a well trained pianist seems to play the piano without thought or effort. They simply think of something and it's now part of their reality.

Those are the people that seem to be born ‘lucky’. Luck however, is not how they got there!
So, how can you start on your journey towards manifesting great things for yourself and those you love?

The first step – a basic understanding of the ‘Law of Attraction’

Gaining a good understanding of how the 'Law of Attraction' works is the first step in becoming a Magnificent Manifestor.

Yes you to can create our own reality now. Yes, you too can now attract riches, opportunities and happiness, etc., in our life when you learn to focus yourself on them so they are attracted to you.

Belief and Feeling
In order to do this, you must learn to believe and feel towards those things you seek in a way that brings them to you.

You probably also know at least one person (not you of course!), who dwells on what they don't want or have. Unfortunately, this kind of thinking ends up creating a reality that attracts ‘less’ as opposed to ‘having more’.

When you focus on "I hate my current employment" then you'll never notice the aspects of your employment that might be satisfying. You must understand that just wanting something isn't going to bring it to you if you continue to focus on the ‘lack’ of that something. You may have personally experienced that 'lack' attitude and learned that it blocked your true desires.

Where's Your Focus
You must learn to fine tune your focus on a particular item or scenario .. rather than on vague goals like ‘more cash’ or ‘winning money’.

Focusing on winning the lottery, for example, is a good example. Lots of people focus their attention on winning the lottery because they feel they 'lack' the things that money can purchase or the things they could do if they had that money. They focus on winning the lottery because they're focused on ‘less’ not ‘having more’.

Oddly enough, many who focus on winning naturally dream of what they could do to help others, even though many of those dreams could actually already be done with their current incomes on a smaller scale, but they don't.

They're focused on 'not enough' it won't ever matter how much money they have, it will never be enough.

When you're focused on the things you ARE really wanting to be doing as if you really are doing them, even if that's only in your imagination and really getting into the FEELINGS you've got when you're doing them ... then your skill of manifestation will improve dramatically.

This is the first step in learning how to manifest in your life. This same first step will work for all aspects of life from healthy, happy relationships to personal wealth.

It's all about the feelings!

Is it your turn now to make the most of out every situation?

Is it your turn now for others to see you as ‘lucky’?

You deserve it and it is time to take action now.
True or True?

Love life and live it creatively and on purpose!

Visualization To Manifest ...

Creative visualization is the use of one's imagination to create a mental picture of what it is you wish to manifest, thus influencing reality.

Creating an idea or mental picture in your brain of exactly what it is you really want is to define the ability to imagine.
Repetition on a regular basis with strong emotions and intent gives the idea or mental picture you're creating, positive energy until it becomes real.

Science is starting to reflect the ideas of metaphysical and spiritual leaders that our physical world constitutes energy and not matter something that has been known to such enlightened folks for centuries. The most basic ingredient of this energy is a force which is called prana.

You Visualize Everyday
Thus visualizing prana energy entering through your nose and circulating throughout your body will have a tremendous revitalizing effect on your whole body & general outlook on life.

Visualization is not a new, strange or unusual concept for you're visualizing something practically every minute of the day.
The idea is to dwell on those thoughts you would like to become reality not as some future fantasy but as if they're real today and are part of your everyday life here and now.

It's The Feelings That Count

Program your brain and re-wire it as if what you desire is real and already taking place. As if you are watching your own self made video, play the role as a real life actor would with all the emotions and movements making it as real as you possibly can.

The mental picture needs to be as clear and vivid as you can possibly make it.
Through repetition you will learn and perfect the skill of creating the desired mental image and feel the experience as if it is already real and happening.

Visualization is pure magic of the highest order. It involves understanding and balancing oneself with the natural law that governs the inner most workings of the Universe we're part of and learning to use such laws and principles in the most conscious and creative ways.

Focus on the Things You Really Want
The message is to imprint the thought and image well into your brain and feed it continually on a regular basis ensuring your desired outcome becomes your reality.

The purpose of the visualization process is to break and flush the inner obstacles to allow more natural flow and increase self realization to increase ones ability to manifest with positive energy.

Remember: It's all about the feelings ... how strongly can you feel the feelings of having the things you really want?

Love life and live it creatively and on purpose!

Four Myths About Building Self-confidence

People who are self-confident believe in themselves and feel they're capable of achieving what they want in life and dealing with any situation that they may have to face. They've an aura of self-assurance, which is apparent to others.

People like to spend time with them; they feel comfortable and secure in their presence.

In contrast, there are many people who are reasonably talented,and lack self-confidence. These people can be victims of the several myths that surround self-confidence.

1. P
eople Are Born With Self-Confidence
This is one of the foremost myths about self-confidence; it's a quality that cannot be acquired.

Nothing can be farther from truth. Self-confidence is a skill and like other skills, it can be built. All you need is right guidance and a belief in yourself.

2. Looks and Upbringing Determine Self-Confidence
Self-confidence has nothing to do with either looks or upbringing. It's a reflection of one's internal beliefs. The only way people can overcome this myth is by learning to believe in themselves.

In fact, talent and self-confidence are not inter-related.
There are scores of talented actors and actresses who do very well in their professions but whose personal lives are torn by lack of self-confidence.

Talent can be an important component of self-confidence, but it's certainly not a substitute for self-confidence. Tap into the good feelings you've got when you're using the skills you possess.

3. Recognition Determines Self-Confidence

Yet another myth is self-confidence is directly proportional to the recognition and praise that an individual gets in his or her life.

There's little doubt that recognition and praise from others instigates good feelings about yourself, and boosts your self-confidence.
But you can't depend on the praise of others. Self-confident people are good at recognizing when they've done something well which operates outside of anything others may or may not say about them.

For example a friend of mine who's quite dark skinned went to school and was often teased about his colour ... he remembers distinctly going home and looking in a mirror and realizing how good looking he was. He has the most amazing self-confidence even to this day.

Toddlers are a good example. They believe in themselves which gives them the self-confidence to try to do things they've never done before, like learning to walk and talk.

In fact, no child comes into the world knowing all the skills. But it does not take long to teach children most of the basic skills. Then, why should it be difficult for adults to learn new skills or brave new challenges?

4. Risk Takers are Self-Confident
Another myth is that only self-confident people can afford to take risks. Again, not true.

In fact, self-confident people are more realistic about their capabilities. They know what they can do, and what they can't do. More importantly, they know how to deal with failures.

In contrast, people who lack self-confidence are afraid of failure. This fear prevents them from taking on new tasks. They constantly pine for the approval of others, and when they don't get it they end up losing their self-confidence.

Self -Confidence is a State of Mind
It's not dependent upon a person's beauty or looks, where they were born or how they were brought up. It flows from a person's self-belief and this belief can be built.
All we need to do is to debunk the myths that self- onfidence cannot be acquired or that self-confidence is a byproduct of exceptional knowledge, skills and luck.

Once you do this, you'll find it easier to acquire the same magnetic powers that the self-confident people you admire have.

Remember: Everyone's good at something ... sort for the things you're good at, acknowledge yourself for them and very soon you'll notice you're self-confidence growing.

Love life and live it creatively and on purpose!

Discovering Internal Motivation ( Finding Your Carrot)

You can’t change a habit unless you replace it with another one.

The same is true of motivation. You can’t change how motivated you are unless you replace the undesirable motivation with a desirable one. Hence, you have to understand whether your motivation is a positive one or a destructive one.

Once your inspiration is identified, you must build on that inspiration until you create an intense hunger in yourself.

This means that you commit to taking responsibility for your own life. You set new goals for yourself or review your existing goals, as well as your reasons for setting them.

As you prepare to tap into your inspirations, ask yourself the following questions. Once you tap into this amazing source of motivation, you can create your own personal call to action.

1. What do you love to do?
2. What would you do with your life if you could do anything?

3. What inspires you?

4. What do you want to achieve in this life?

5. If you had all the money in the world, what would you do with your life?

To facilitate motivation and change, you must know and understand the answer to each of these questions. You can only facilitate change in yourself if you understand your motivation for making the change in the first place.

1. What knowledge and information do you need to take action?

2. Are you more motivated by inspiration, desperation or a combination of the two?
3. What is the cost of staying the same, or what will happen if you don’t change?

4. What are the benefits you'll receive when you make the change you are asking of yourself?
5. Do you feel capable and competent enough to make that change?

Life is a game and the more fun you're having the more you'll attract the things you really want in life.

A Change is as Good as a Holiday

How many times do you hear yourself say “I need a holiday!”?

Your life is busy with routines - work, school, laundry, after school activities ... it’s no wonder you feel hassled, stressed or on that running wheel you can’t seem to get off of.

Maybe your job seems boring, or your daily schedule seems endlessly tiring.

You tell yourself you need a holiday, or convince yourself that you just need to get away from it all. But guess what? It’s all there when you come back, and all of that blissful feeling of well being ends in the first meeting at work, or even in the first hectic morning back in the routine.

I'm not sure where I first heard the saying, 'A change is as good as a holiday.' and realilstically it doesn't really matter. They were wise words and ones most of us have heard often. They're words I put to work in my life when I feel tired, stressed or just plain bored.

For some people though, just the word 'change' can be stressful.

They associate it with major events, like having to get a new job, moving house, an event that requires a major effort on their part or a change in the way they behave.

Change is Refreshing
But there are many changes that we can make that can refresh us on a daily basis, som
e serious and others fun.

Many of the options for change are not things that we even normally consider a 'change,' but they are things we can do to refresh our daily lives and maintain the balance we need.

They can be little things like taking a different route to work, the shops or school or even simpler things like putting the left leg into your pants before the right or the other way round or using a different hand to hold your toothbrush in.

Try it yourself ... I know when I first started doing my morning routine slightly differently it amazed me how something so small could make such a difference to the way I thought about things.

Meaningful Change
We all need to find the basic qualities that make our lives fulfilling and meaningful.

These basic qualities then become the elements of our lives - the fundamental components that make us whole. Recognizing these elements is not enough - the key is to find the balance of elements that reflects the importance and priorities of our lives.

So what makes your life meaningful? I'd love to understand what's important to you.

Remember: It's the journey that makes the difference ... enjoy the journey and the destination then becomes a bonus!
