Understand your subconscious mind through Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingNLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming is the new technology of achievement. In NLP, neuro is derived from nerves, which represents behaviour. ‘Linguistic’ is derived from language, which means structure and ‘Programming’ is borrowed from computers, which means creating change. Thus, NLP creates structured behavioural changes in your attitude. NLP improves conceptual skills, analytical ability and stress management skills.

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) was created by psychotherapist John Grinder, mathematician and psychologist Richard Bandler in association with Dr. Erikson, a leading hypnotherapist. Bandler and Grinder have since split and are separately teaching their own versions of NLP to their respective students. NLP originated in the research labs of the University of California at Santa Cruz, and evolved as late as the 1990’s. In NLP is this software. Software for relaxing the body, mind and soul!

Corporate trainers using NLP maintains, “NLP can be put to use in a variety of diverse corporate and individual environments, but it is most commonly used for stress management, healing, goal-setting, goal achievement, communication, motivation and team-building. How can managers benefit from NLP? NLP meditation techniques develop the fine art of aligning your energy in tune with the universal energy. This reduces stress levels as managers begin to be guided by the infinite intelligence within them. NLP meditation and tribal music for relaxation help them to be calm while making crucial business decisions.”
NLP researchers have discovered that people have three basic methods of perceiving the world based on their unconscious mental maps, namely visual, auditory and kinesthetic. All of us have one of these preferred mental maps in our unconscious mind. The important point about these mental maps is that these modes are the preferred modes of thinking! A visual person is most comfortable when you show him colorful brochures. It is his most natural way of understanding the world.
NLP researchers believe that In India, 35 per cent of us are visuals, 35 per cent are auditories, and the rest of us are kinesthetics. NLP research indicates that visuals respond to colour therapy, fire music and creative visualisation exercises. Similarly, auditories respond to music therapy, auto-suggestion and water music. Kinesthetics respond to massage therapy and clapping therapy. These relaxation techniques program their unconscious mind and help them manage stress more effectively.

It is all a matter of using the appropriate programming technique to achieve higher goals in life. NLP shows you this way.
