Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a revolutionary, yet disputed methodology of how our neurology, language, and how we are programmed translates into our experience. There are many definitions of NLP. The gist of all definitions is the interlinked usage of neurology, language and programming to create a wholesome experience for a person. There are a lot of really neat things that can be done using NLP. Below is a video of Derren Brown using NLP techniques.

NLP is based on two main fundamentals.

1. The mind is not a territory

It is believed by the founders of NLP, John Grinder and Richard Bandler, that human beings see the world around them through the notion of perception. What is true and actual reality, the human being will never know.

2. Life and mind are systematic processes

It is also believed by the founders of NLP that our life is interlinked with many other complexities that are around us. Our own thinking, our interaction with those around us and the universe and the effect we have on our environment are all linked together and we cannot isolate one from the other. All of these processes aim to attain a balance and that is where inner peace is created.

NLP is solidly based on these two principles and based on these, we can change the way be behave, interact and live with our society.

Through NLP, you will be able to understand why you are facing difficulties doing certain things, why you are afraid of certain things as well as how you can overcome your fears and improve your life.

How can NLP help you?

If you are thinking of going to an NLP trained professional, the first thing you will notice is that an assessment of both your conscious as well as your subconscious mind will be made. The assessment will then be further studied and then diagnosed.

How can you use NLP in your daily life?

You are already using NLP if you are actively seeking to improve your life for the better. The quest for goodness and peace is what NLP is all about.

Think and speak positively

Have you ever noticed yourself when you speak? Have you ever caught yourself in mid sentence and analyzed exactly what you are thinking? Try this with your friend and identify how you think and how you speak. If you are constantly thinking in the negative, you can change your way of thinking positively using NLP. You can program your language and thoughts to positive. As you practice more and more of this, you will start getting the hang of it and eventually you will turn into a positive person.


By definition, NLP is about perception. You are what you perceive. So why not perceive something that is useful to you! This is not about blind trust or turning away from obvious things around you. Perception here is about how you view yourself and the others around you. Are you judgmental? Do you have a negative opinion about anything and everything? Do you distrust everybody? Then you need to program your perception.

Take action

Are you constantly putting off things? Then you need to program your mindset by using NLP. You need to start with programming your mind to do everything “now!” Never let your activities hog your task table. Get them finished at once. This is how you can program yourself to be clutter free and a responsible person who gets things done.

If you want to benefit more from NLP, you can try hypnosis to reform your subconscious mind. There are many trained NLP practitioners as well as NLP programs available in the market.
