Neurogical Levels in NLP I.

Hypnosys & NLP

>>>Find the Top NLP Masters & Hypnostherapists in London!

One of my favourite exploratory models in NLP is Neurological Levels as developed by Robert Dilts. Dilts identified six different levels of experience corresponding to six different levels of neurological ‘circuitry’. Before reading about the levels, choose a behaviour (playing a sport, eating, and writing coaching tips) or a life area (money, sex, relationships) to explore:

Environment - This level defines the external context for any behaviour or event. It asks the question “where, when and with whom does (whatever you’re exploring) take place?”

Behaviour -    This is the level of action, which asks the question “what specifically do you do when you’re engaged in (whatever you’re exploring)?” Behaviour is made up of the specific actions or reactions we take. Regardless of our capabilities, behaviour describes what we actually do at the level of conscious action.

Capability - This level answers the question “How do you do (whatever it is you’re exploring)? What capabilities and skills do you tap into when you engage in the area of your life you have chosen to explore?” Every behaviour we use is a subset of the area of our capabilities and skills. When I write, I am (hopefully) utilizing the skills of creativity, self-reflection, seeing the world from multiple perspectives, critical thinking, and typing.  Essentially, the capability level looks at the thinking that underpins behaviour, the mental maps and knowledge, plans or strategies a person has access to when they’re doing what they’re doing. Some behaviours and thinking patterns have been repeated so often they’ve become automatic (like getting angry, having low self esteem). Maybe it’s time to question them!

Beliefs and Values – Having explored the where, what, and how of your chosen context, the next question to ask is ‘why’? Asking yourself why (whatever you’re exploring) is important will assist you in identifying your values; asking yourself ‘what’s true about (whatever you’re exploring)?’ will begin to bring out your beliefs.
Our beliefs and values direct us and act a bit like a dual purpose valve both allowing and preventing certain things. Beliefs can be both permissive and limiting. Our beliefs and values provide the reinforcement that supports or denies our capabilities.

Identity - Your sense of self and the way that you see yourself that determines who you are. Who you are, the persona you inhabit, and how you define yourself has a huge impact on your life. Our sense of identity encompasses a vast constellation of beliefs and values about the world, and is a powerful key to unlocking transformational change. Ask yourself “Who am I when I am engaged in (whatever you’re exploring)?”

Spirit or Purpose - Spirit is my connection to a higher power – my sense of being part of a greater whole. Spirit may be your sense of mission, higher purpose, or your connection to God or your connection to that which is beyond your scope as a human. Choose the language that works best for you and ask yourself “Who or what else is involved in (whatever you’re exploring)? How does it fit in with the big picture of my life? How does it fit in with the big picture of my life on earth?”

Understanding Feelings Through NLP

To learn more various NLP & Hypnosis techniques, click on the following link now:
>>> Learn More About Hypnosis

People generally attempt to describe their feelings in terms of pictures, metaphors or internal dialogue instead of actual physical sensations. So before we go any further, answer this question: "How do you feel, right now?"

Here are some of the most common types of answer to the question:

  • Judgements and Comparisons (words like good, bad, awful, fantastic, better or worse etc.) Remember – these are not feelings, they are descriptions.
  • Analogies such as "I feel an elephant is sitting on my chest", "like the cat that got the cream" or even ‘I feel like sh%t!" Again – these are not feelings, they’re descriptions.
  • Neutralizers are words like "fine", "OK", and "not bad" are also ways of keeping our feelings at a distance (i.e. like descriptions)
  • Emotions (which also are not feelings). They are generalized descriptions of a set of sensations. "I feel happy" or "I feel sad" is a step closer to your actual feelings but are also descriptions.

So what is a feeling?

A feeling is an internal sensation, like ‘warm’, ‘tingly’, ‘cool’, ‘tight’, or ‘loose’. You may feel one thing in one part of your body and something completely different in another, though we are often only aware of one dominant sensation in any given moment.

While you may prefer certain feelings to others, there is no inherent good, bad, right or wrong to what you’re feeling – a feeling is a feeling is a feeling. How you interpret those feelings however has a huge impact on how you experience life.

    By observing a persons eye patterns, we can get clues as to where they store related information and how they will problably act upon it.


    Learn Hypnosis

    Bandler and Grinder observed that people move their eyes in systematic directions, depending upon the kind of thinking they are doing. Not “WHAT” they are actually thinking, but “HOW” they are thinking. These movements are called eye accessing cues. The chart below indicates the kind of processing most people do when moving their eyes in a particular direction. A small percentage of people are "reversed," that is, they move their eyes in a mirror image of the chart below.

    A person accessing visual images will move their eyes up and to the left or to the right, or they may just stare straight ahead with unfocused eyes. The person may therefore be thinking in pictures and visualising images.

    Those who move their eyes to the left or right (i.e. on a level between their ears) are either remembering or constructing sounds.

    Those who move their eyes down to the right (as you look at them) are accessing their internal dialogue or self talk (Auditory digital). That is, they may be making sense of what is going on around them through conversation with themselves.

    Those who move their eyes down to the left (as you look at them) may be accessing their feelings and how they feel about something.

    Eye Accessing Cues – Diagram

    The diagram above is for a "normal" right handed person. Many left-handed people and some ambidextrous people will have eye movements that are reversed.

    Vr Visual Recall
    Seeing images from the memory, recalling things you’re have seen before.

    Vc Visual Constructed
    Seeing images of things you have never seen before. When you are making it up in their head, you are using Visual Constructed.

    Remember: Some people access visually by defocusing their eyes. When this happens, the eyes will usually stay in the centre.

    Ar Auditory Recall
    Is when you remember sounds or voices that you’ve heard before or things that you’ve said to yourself before.

    Ac Auditory Constructed
    This is making up sounds that you’ve not heard before.

    K Kinaesthetic (Feelings, sense of touch)
    You generally look in this direction when you’re accessing your feelings.

    Ad Auditory Digital (Talking to yourself)
    This is where your eyes move when you’re having internal dialogue.

    People experience themselves and the world through the senses of seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, and tasting.

    These sensory modalities are the means by which people code, organise, store, and attach meaning to input from the outside world. These are our Representational (Rep) Systems. As sensory input is internally processed (re-presented), it is translated into sensory representations or maps which form a synthesis of the original perceptual input. So, Reality (external) and our perceptions of reality (internal) are not the same – "The Map is not the Territory."

    The Senses

    •    V        Visual                       Seeing
    •    A        Auditory                   Hearing
    •    K        Kinaesthetic             Feeling
    •    O        Olfactory                  Smelling
    •    G        Gustatory                 Tasting
    •    Ad      Auditory Digital         Self Talk and Logic

    For the purposes of simplicity, the Olfactory and Gustatory rep systems are often combined with the Kinaesthetic. One other Rep System is often mentioned which is called Auditory digital. This system tends to focus on self talk and logic.

    For many reasons (e.g. due to our memories, beliefs, or values) we tend to prefer using one or more rep system to process information unconsciously over others. For example, some people pay more attention to what they see and will form pictures in their minds when they are thinking. They tend to use words or phrases such as ‘looks like’, ‘have a clear idea’ and ‘let’s focus on’. Whilst someone else might more readily notice how things sound and internally re-present information in the form of internal sounds and use phrases such as ‘let’s talk it over’ and ‘that sounds OK’.

    We can all use any of the rep systems and can switch from moment to moment from one to another. However, we still have a preference for one way of communicating information most of the time. If you can identify which rep system you generally use, and which your client’s generally use, then you can learn how to speak your client’s language and deepen your level of rapport and build the relationship still further.

    Hypnotize Someone – Part I

    Before you hypnotize someone you may want to know more a little bit about the fundamentals of NLP. Why? Because NLP & Hypnosis both work with the subconscious mind. Understanding the fundamentals of NLP can support more effective and more ethical hypnotism.

     >>>Learn To Hypnotize

     The Fundamental Principles of NLP

     The presuppositions are the central principles central of NLP; they are its guiding philosophy, its ‘beliefs’. These principles are not claimed to be true or universal. You do not have to believe they are true. They are called presuppositions because you pre-suppose them to be true and then act as if they were. You then discover what happens. If you like the results then continue to act as if they are true. They form a set of ethical principles for life.

    1.      People respond to their experience, not to reality itself.

    We do not know what reality is. Our senses, beliefs, and past experience give us a map of the world from which to operate. A map can never be exactly accurate; otherwise it would be the same as the ground it covers. We do not know the territory, so for us, the map is the territory. Some maps are better than others for finding your way around. We navigate life like a ship through a dangerous area of sea; as long as the map shows the main hazards, we will be fine. When maps are faulty and do not show the dangers, then we are in danger of running aground. NLP is the art of changing these maps, so we have greater freedom of action. Recognise that each person’s ‘truth’ is true for them even if it differs from your ‘truth’ – since our internal version of reality is just that – a ‘version’ of reality. Discover the other person’s perceptions before you begin to influence them. (‘Meet people in their own unique model of the world’)

    2.      Having a choice is better than not having a choice.

    Always try to have a map for yourself that gives you the widest and richest number of choices. Act always to increase choice. The more choices you have, the freer you are, the more influence you have and the more likely you are to achieve your outcomes. Enhance your behavioural and attitudinal flexibility. (‘In any interaction the person with the greatest behavioural flexibility has most influence on the outcome’) Act as if there is a solution to every problem. Recognise that in any situation a person is making the best choice with the resources which they currently perceive as being available to them.

    3.      People make the best choice they can at the time.

    A person always makes the best choice they can, given their map of the world. The choice may be self-defeating, bizarre or evil, but for them, it seems the best way forward. Give them a better choice in their map of the world and they will take it. Even better give them a superior map with more choices in it.

    4.      People work perfectly.

    No one is wrong or broken. They are carrying out their strategies perfectly, but the strategies may be poorly designed and ineffective. Find out how you and others do what they do so their strategy can be changed to something more useful and desirable.

    5.      All actions have a purpose.

    Our actions are not random; we are always trying to achieve something, although we may not be aware of what that is. Human behaviour has a structure.

    How To Hypnotize Someone & Self Hypnosis Tips


    The first thing you need to do after building Rapport, is to induce the hypnotic trance or hypnosis state.  You do this by getting either yourself or the client to focus their attention.  In basic terms we are getting the client or ourselves to narrow our focus and ultimately get them or ourselves to start to relax.  I will have more information about this on other articles on my blog feel free to check them out here

    >>>Learn Hypnosis Secrets

    Once the hypnotic state has been induced here are three top tips to deepen the level of hypnotic trance.

    Deepening techniques

    1.    By direct or indirect suggestion.
    "Each time I touch your forehead … notice that you can go even deeper. Go deeper now."
    "With every breath you take, you may find a sense of the deepening relaxation that allows for deep trance to occur.
    "Imagine walking down a flight of stairs that goes down ten steps for each of ten floors, and as you do go deeper in trance. With each step you go deeper. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 and now you are at the first floor landing etc.

    2.    By repeated induction.
    Repeating the induction of trance (called fractionation) deepens the trance. Typically the more times a client is hypnotised, the deeper the client will go. If trance is induced several times in a row in a short period of time without allowing the client to fully wake up each time, the client will go deeper.

    3.    By using Embedded Metaphor.
    Using embedded metaphor will deepen the client’s trance. In fact, the more levels of embedded metaphor used, the deeper the trance which follows (although there seems to be a point of diminishing returns which happens after 12 or so embedded metaphors).

    Rapport – NLP Rapport

    Rapport is the fundamental prerequisite skill for excellent communication

    Rapport is a bridge between our own models of the world and another person’s model of the world. When we create rapport with another person we implicitly agree to enter their model of the world and let them into ours.

    Rapport among friends is an unconscious and natural process. If you look about you will notice them sitting or standing in the same physical position as their friends. If you listen you will hear people using the same phrase or tone in their voice. These are all signs of the natural process of rapport.

    We can also consciously use this knowledge to begin to build rapport with other people. You could match their posture, verbal predicates, their breathing etc.

    As you are getting better at using your rapport skills so you will be able to notice the more subtle signs of good rapport.  When you’re practicing your skills with another person do the smallest possible thing to create and maintain rapport with another.

    Being in rapport with someone who is different from you may not be a comfortable place. It can feel quite strange, this is because we are extending our map of the world into places it has not yet been. We will be temporarily extending our beliefs and values and ways of thinking to join someone in their model of the world while we offer our model to them.

    If someone is angry or upset we can join them rapport fully by matching their energy.  There is a fine line between joining and escalating the situation.

    One of the foundations of rapport is your emotional state if you want to discover the power of influence, persuasion, happiness and health check out my 2 day course on hypnosis.

    Learning Trance State and Confusion

    Learning and confusion

    Give me a fruitful error any time, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections.  You can keep your sterile truth for yourself. 

    Vilfredo Pareto (Italian Economist)

    Some people will never learn anything, for this reason, because they understand everything too soon. 

    Alexander Pope

    Some states are better for learning in than others. At the start of each day, consider “what would be the best state for me to learn in be?” Then act throughout the day “as if” you were already in that state. Notice what you do that works and do more of that. The more used to identifying the successes and strategies that lead to my success, the more able I am to employ them and notice when I am not employing them. This gives me the chance to take corrective action from the feedback.

    This training may be different from many of the training’s you have been on before. You were learning the most during the first few years of your life, it was a 24/7 workshop and there were no handouts or manuals. You used all your senses; completely immersed yourself in exploring the world, took the knocks and learned from them. Some of the exercises on this course won’t be fully explained before you do them so you may feel a little confused or lost. This is deliberate on our part as sometimes we learn best through wanton experimentation and trying new things. Jump on in and notice what you notice. Also, remember the four stages of learning:

    Unconscious incompetence – “I don’t know that I don’t know”

    Conscious incompetence – “I know what I want but don’t know how to do it”

    Conscious competence – “I know how to do it but I have to think about it”

    Unconscious competence – "I know how to do it and dont have to pay concious attention to it"

    It’s likely that you will experience all of these stages and some confusion at different parts of the course – this is a perfectly natural part of learning. Remember, confusion is “the gateway to understanding.” If you are completely ignorant, or simply don’t know something, then you can’t be confused! You can only be confused when you have incomplete information and only partial understanding. To be confused you must already know some of the pieces. Confusion is a prelude to integration, and to be welcomed, not avoided!


    Acknowledge the state: “I’m confused”, then ask yourself “What else do I need?”

    Am I confused because …

    There is missing information? (environment)

    I don’t know what to do? (behaviour)

    I don’t know how to do something? (capability)

    It conflicts with my beliefs and values? (beliefs and values)

    It’s not in keeping with my sense of self? (identity)
