Science tells us that approximately 11 million bits of information come at us in any given second and we can only process less than 150 of it per second. This means you would be in a consistent state of confusion and overwhelm unless you had a way to organize and filter it all. Fortunately, nature has taken care of this for us.

We all create what we, in the NLP World, call our “Model of the World”… This is the filter through which we view all of the events in life and it is comprised of our beliefs, values and interpretations of our life experiences. Research tells us that this becomes the foundation for our subconscious program and it is pretty well formed and firmly in place by the time we are 7 years old. 

Please note that life experiences alone have little bearing on shaping this filter, but rather our own interpretations of our experiences are what create the stories that run our lives. When we consider that children under the age of 7 with NO real information about the world are creating this filter that will guide us throughout life, that is mind-boggling!

When new information comes in, we filter it and understand it the way we have always understood it… because it always passes through this same filter in the same way. If there are disempowering beliefs built into this filter, then what comes out is disempowerment.

If you want to better understand your Model of the World, start to write down the thoughts in your head when you are experiencing various emotions… This exercise is very helpful just to create awareness of what is making you feel the way you do. It’s actually a pre-work assignment I ask all my clients to do before our first hypnotherapy and NLP coaching session together.

If you’re feeling down today, what are you thinking about? If you are feeling good today, what’s making you feel optimistic and happy? Be mindful of the messages you send to yourself daily and work hard to send yourself the most positive ones and censor out the negative thoughts…

Hypnosis therapy, aka Hypnotherapy, applies proven safe and effective techniques to guide you into a deep state of relaxation. This is the state in which you are most receptive to positive suggestions for your well-being. If there are things inside of your current Model of The World that no longer support your happiness, I guide you in changing your belief system to support your goal attainment. 

As long as you remember that YOU are IN CONTROL of YOUR LIFE… you ARE! Reach out if you want more tips on how to do this.
