Today’s guest post is from international best-selling author, therapist and speaker Patrick McNally. Here he reveals his favorite NLP method for instantly releasing negative emotions.
If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…
After two decades of working with TV celebrities, movie stars, sports stars and the general public, the most profound discovery I’ve made is that people need a technique that will quickly eliminate any negative emotions…because if they can’t rid themselves of fear, doubt, anxiety or depression, they have little or no chance to live an amazing life.
This technique is lightning fast, so do it now.
Think of anything that is bothering you, worrying you, or making you feel sad or fearful. Pick the worst thing you are going through now.
As you keep thinking about it, let yourself detect where you feel it in your body. Some people have felt it in their chest, arms, stomach, throat, between their breasts (females), or at the top of their stomach (men store it here a lot). Become aware of where it enters your body.
Notice which direction this feeling is moving. It has to move – feelings move all the time. For example, I want you to think about being nervous. When a person is nervous, they normally say “I have butterflies in my tummy”.
By now you should be thinking of it, feeling it and know the direction in which it is moving. Now I want you to look at what it is you are seeing in your mind’s eye. Is it a still picture or a movie? Go to (a) if it’s a picture and go to (b) if it’s a movie
(a) If it’s a picture, place a black border around the edge and move it away from you in your mind’s eye, shrinking it down to the size of a postcard. Then move it away from you again until it’s the size of a postage stamp. Then when it is as small as you can make it, take a deep breath and blow it away until you can’t see it anymore.
At the very same time as you are doing this, I want you to place your hands on the area of your body where the feelings are. Then push the feelings in your body in the opposite direction. So, for example, if you discovered the feelings were in your lower stomach moving up, you would use your hands to move the feelings downward. As you blow the picture away you should also find you have moved the feeling from your body.
(b) If you see a movie playing, pick the worst part of the movie and freeze it. Now you have a picture and can continue with the technique by following the instructions given above in (a).
Test the results of your work. Try to think again about THE SAME THING that was worrying you and see and feel for yourself how remarkably different the experience is now.
No other technique has ever gotten close to removing negative emotions as fast as this one and I give it to you with love and blessing for an amazing life. Never let your body trick you anymore – you make the thoughts that create the feelings…and now you can change your feelings about anything in your life.
