Letting Go of the Past - The Personal Development Path - Applied NLP and Hypnosis

Applying NLP Techniques and Self Hypnosis to Put the Past Behind You - Letting Go of the Past and The Personal Development Path

How to Move Forward From Your Past Using NLP Techniques

This was a fun little video to shoot especially since it involved a good hike and a snowstorm in the middle of summer.

One of the most challenging questions that clients ask me is if I have let go of all of the negative experiences in my past.

My answer is both yes and no. It's a process of forgiving and releasing whatever comes up when it comes up. Sometimes you don't know you're holding onto something until you are confronted with it.

It's not uncommon for people to dig up wrongdoings from the past as they begin a personal development path, and as I say in the video above there's not much that you can do with that information. In many ways, it's your personal story and it's up to you to determine how long you want to hold onto it. Some stories are great and worth keeping for a lifetime and others are better off left behind.

Let Go of the Past Using Self Hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming Techniques

The beauty of neuro-linguistic programming ( NLP ) and Ericksonian hypnosis is that an environment can be created in which one can release the past. For many people these NLP anchoring techniques aren't something to be easily learned from the various NLP books out there, because most beginners find it difficult to reduce external distractions. By entering a trance state that is fairly easy to do once you learn self hypnosis, then you'll find that there are a few NLP techniques anyone case use to let go of the past and this is what I teach in my self hypnosis mp3 Full Forgiveness.

So, why bring up the past? There are two reasons in my opinion. First, to identify blocks to your evolution and release them. Secondly, to reframe and integrate the beneficial learnings from those experiences so that you can transcend them and empower others to make different decisions based upon your insights.

NLP Techniques to Forgive, Let Go of the Past, Release the Past Completely, and Move Forward...

I view life as a process in which we are helped along by others until we reach a point in our own personal development where we can begin to help others - in our unique way. As we enter into life most of us are taking more help than we are giving. As time passes, the balance should shift so that we find ourselves in a place to empower others. Letting go of the past is the first step in moving ahead.

If you had to let go of just one life experience that has been bothering, what would it be?

If you're not sure, then consider this question from a different perspective:

  • If you could improve your life in one specific way, how would it be different?

  • Now, what would that life improvement require you to change?

  • What in your life has been persisting against your will? I

  • How would you begin to let go of the past?

There are some powerful NLP techniques that can be used to distance yourself from the past and also reduce the impact memories associated with past experiences can have on you. Using specific NLP techniques you are free to establish the motions that are baseline - meaning that they are completely neutral when you recollect or remember past experiences. If you're not sure how to do this on your own and you recognize the importance in moving ahead with your personal development, then I encourage you to find a qualified coach to empower you to let go of the past.

If you perceive how I can assist you with applying NLP techniques to help you let go of the past then by all means contact me.
