Learning How To Get Rid Of Anxiety
Eleven years ago, I learned a technique which is a nuclear bomb how to get rid of anxiety. It completely blows up if you do it. Everyone has anxiety at one point in their life. But this technique will help get rid of anxiety and re-wire your brain for success.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
I did it with one of my first clients. As a result, she went off medication when she used this technique. NLP created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California in the 1960s. It is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy.
Furthermore, NLP helps you shift into the life you want. Consequently, we are only conscious of a little part of our bodies. In addition to that, filters in our bodies are limiting decisions and aspects of our life.
Time Line Therapy (TLT)
Time Line Therapy (TLT) on the other hand, is developed by Tad James, Ph.D. in the 1980s. Evolving from hypnosis and NLP, it is a powerful therapeutic process. How we store our memories in a linear manner is part of the therapeutic process.
TLT eliminates painful emotions attached to memories or past events. It is one of the most powerful processes and techniques for personal change and growth.
Furthermore, it also focuses on what we can learn from those events. This is by using what we learn as a resource for the future. Time Line Therapy techniques produce quicker and long-lasting transformation with a minimum of discomfort to the client.
TLT also enables you to clear limiting beliefs that can leave you stuck in the past. It stops you from creating what you want in your life. Negative emotions and what we believe in influence every area of our lives.
Tad James hired me as sales manager after I took his course. Hence, I moved from Canada to the U.S. He’s smart and her he studied NLP, too.
Working With Clients
I love working with entrepreneurs and business owners. Because they are highly motivated to get to the root cause, get rid of anxiety and go become successful. Those are my favorite kind of clients.
One memorable client was this sales manager of an electronics store in Quebec. I sat down with him and his team to coach them. I asked each one of them individually on what they feel is holding them back from being better at sales.
The sales manager said he can’t connect with his customers. It turned out at age 3, he witnessed his grandmother burn to death and felt that being sad was his way of honoring her. I was able to help him reverse that emotion and is now a changed man.
Sitting with someone for a day had such a profound impact. Eventually, he also transferred to a workplace closer to home. This enabled him to spend more time with family.
There is a way to get to the roots cause of negative emotions and resolve it. Furthermore, emotions are negative when we hold on to unresolved emotions from the past. Consequently, it affects our biochemistry and clouds our judgment.
Rapport is incredibly important. First of all, we have to be able to connect with people. We have to feel that emotional connection.
Ask The Right Questions
NLP is all about asking the right questions. But you have to make sure the person you are helping is committed to the program. I also do phone coaching. Things like tone of voice and body movements are important considerations to make the program work.
To help identify the root cause of anxiety, ask yourself these questions:
- What triggered that?
- Why did they do that?
- What am I getting out of it?
- What is it costing me?
These will help you understand the problem more.
Anxiety is a unique emotion. Our body cannot tell the difference between what is imagined and what is real. Furthermore, we have a big physiological response to imagined fears. Hence, when we are prone to anxiety, our body will be wired to it.
Some simple techniques on how to get rid of anxiety:
- Close your eyes.
- Float out of your body and try to see the situation in its entirety.
- Prepare and go on.
Types Of Trance
There are different levels of trance:
- Self-hypnosis – light state of trance
- Deep trance- somebody has to do it with you because the conscious mind is out
Personally, I prefer the self-hypnosis because I believe that one needs to have a conscious mind to take responsibility for the change. Therefore, getting rid of anxiety is really a doable process. You have look for areas in your life that you need to forgive yourself for. Once you get to the root cause of what is causing your anxiety, it is easier to take steps to maintain a positive outlook. Finally, acknowledge how great you are and everything else follows from there.
