NLP A To Z
Options - One of the great things that NLP teaches is that when you realize you have more than one option, you have better control of current situations. Much of NLP is about discovering and installing additional options.
Other-than-conscious Mind -
This is often a better way to refer to the subconscious mind - that part of a person that is not involved in aware thinking or analysis.
Outcome Frame -
One of the core techniques of NLP is to ask a series of carefully designed questions to help the subject develop a well-formed outcome. Once the subject has constructed an outcome that can be stated in the positive, is of manageable size, and can be initated and maintained by the subject, the programmer can then begin therapeutic techniques. Sometimes just arriving at a well-formed outcome is therapeutic in itself. The typical questions, in a very simplified form, are:
What would you like?
What will having that do for you?
How will you know when you have it?
When, where, and with whom would you like to have it?
And there are some ecology questions you can ask in the outcome frame. These will help the subject discover reasons for procrastination or avoidance.
What might you lose that you value when you have it?
How will it affect the significant people in your life?
While the outcome frame in itself can be remarkably valuable, the experienced programmer may start with the outcome frame, and then work with regression, hypnotherapy or other techniques to discover subconscious blocks.
