Hypnosis and NLP training are based on principles that change occurs in an instant, and there is a 100% correlation between mental activity and emotional responses that result in physical ones.
Hypnosis techniques used have evolved over thousands of years. The greatest developments have occurred relatively recently since the mid 1800's. NLP was first created in the mid 1970's based on Psychology, Hypnosis and Linguistics. NLP represents a revolution in human change and communications.
Thanks William Johnson for this post. People are always amazed when they find out they have entered into states of suggestibility when in heightened emotional states. Normal conscious evaluations then fall by the wayside, providing more direct routes to their unconscious mind.

emotion is not necessarily a sign of any type of mental issue. While you may
not be aware of them, you still have them. In fact it’s not possible to not
have emotions. We show our them through our body language. Afterall, every
thought creates an internal feeling and every emotion affects some area or
areas of our bodies. So, whether you are aware of them or not and even though
someone seems emotionless, feelings are still present.
us are just more full of feeling than others. It’s
perfectly “ok” to not have or be aware of emotions. Many people live
satisfactory lives without experiencing them. The key is to ask yourself if you
are ok with having them or not. If you are, no problem. Lack of emotion may
represent a fair of having them or simply not understanding how to use the. If you
do not have them but want to, you may want to check in with a counselor who can
help you learn about making them available.
great thing about having emotions is that they are our emotional GPS. They are
our inner guidance system. And you can use these inner senses of emotions to be
aware of things that don’t appear very clearly if you’re trying to get a
picture or sound in your mind.
We all have
inner senses as well as external ones. For each external sense that we have
there is a corresponding inner sense and a whole lot more. People use certain
inner senses to the exclusion of others in order to make sense of different
situations. In noting the language someone uses, not their use of descriptive
words nouns and verbs which depict sensory information. For instance someone
might say, “This is music to my ears. It really resonates with me.” Music,
years, and resonates all refers to sound information, and the person using
these words is probably processing information by way of sounds.
other hand, when someone uses terms such as, “I’m not feeling you. That’s a
rough way to go.” Here, feeling and rough referred to emotions and emotional
characteristics, where as the individual is processing information on the basis
of emotion. Likewise similar sensory clues are available for the other senses
which include vision, smell and taste.
emotion is combined with visual or sound/auditory clues as to how a person is
processing information inside. Thus while someone may not seem to have emotions
you can listen to the language that they use and determine if they are
processing information emotionally and how they are processing that
information. Their emotions then will show through their verbal language and
maybe not their body language.
who are visually focused tend to look up as they think and speak words
characterizing vision: I see, bright, dark, light, “sign”, focus, etc.
I heard, sounds like, clear as a bell, etc.
I feel you, warm, tight grip, cool, etc.
sensory references: think, sense, know, etc.
this sheds some light on your current situation. Another question you can ask
yourself is, “Am I ok to not experience emotions. If you would like to you can
practice having them which is what you can learn by hanging out with some very
emotional people. For the emotionally lorn it can actually be quite fun.
Can Hypnosis and NLP Be Used To Bring Back
Hypnosis and NLP have been used
throughout the decades to help people who have various levels of emotional
difficulties. Whether the emotions are too strong or the emotions are absent
both methods can be utilized to bring about desired responses. Thus in the case
of an individual who is short on emotions such a person can be probed to find
those emotions then have them come back. As a matter of fact in NLP during the
coaching process we specialize in getting coaching clients in touch with
emotions that they're not aware of. Thus it's just a matter of course. Remember
emotions are your inner GPS.
For instance there is a process called
Getting Unconscious Signals. During this process, we guide the client through a
series of questions where we ask them to ask their subconscious/unconscious
minds to give them feelings for "yes" and "no". Once the
coaching client is able to get these responses directly from their unconscious
mind, they are ready to get in touch with other emotions which are long gone. Learning
to trust and be in touch with emotions is one of the keys to making desired
Emotions are also the power with which
we make things happen. While someone might not be aware of certain emotions or
may feel out of touch with certain feelings there are still emotions going on
inside the individual. In fact all of us have the emotions which are repressed
that come into play with all the decisions that we are currently making. These
varied emotions become part of our learning process and we function based on
our understanding of them in our desire to re-create them in varying
While I don’t have access to the
specific study, one was done during the 1960s where some researchers cataloged
the emotions of many different cultures throughout the world. They came up with
10,000 different emotions. Yes that is true 10,000 different emotions. Now most
of us can’t fathom that there are so many emotions. However we’re free to paint
our landscape of experience with whatever emotions or feelings that we deem
appropriate to each and every situation. We even have feelings about things
that we don’t know that we have feelings about. And it may be a feeling that doesn’t
warrant having any feelings. That being the case we’ve decided to not recognize
It’s important to be able to blot out feelings.
Otherwise we would become overwhelmed. Our conscious mind is very limited in
terms of the amount of input that it can handle. That is input coming from
inside as well as outside. It can handle approximately 7+ or -2 activities simultaneously,
at the rate of about 140 bits of information per second. Contrast this with our
unconscious minds ability to handle millions if not billions of bits of
information per second.
All of our emotions in varying degrees
are very important. We have choice as to which emotions that we choose to be
aware of or not. The decision whether to acknowledge a certain emotion or not
rests with its significance to us.
