Title Moon Illusion

Posted by admin in nlp

The moon you see on the horizon appears as big as a Pizza ("...when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie.." The mkoon you see up in ther day or night sky appears to be smaller than the moon you saw on the horizon the night before.

In fcat the moon are the same size.

The moon appears bigger on the horizon because we sense that it is closer to us and therefore it must be bigger.

When we have a problem it can seem to occupy our whole being. It sometimes seem bigger than we can handle. It can seem overwhelming or overbearing.

As an NLP consultant I often see people who have a problem. When their problem is personal (phobia, panic attacks, compulsion etc) it appears to them out of proportion in the context of their life. The closer the problem is to them (more personal) the bigger and seemingly overbearing.

When we run a reality check (open up their model of the world -or measure the moons) they realise that there is a great deal in their life that is "ticking over fine" (the job, their family, their cfriends, their ability to functions in spite of the problem, their ability to talk about theur problem)

This puts their "problem" in its place. This new perspective gives them new eyes, new ears, new feelings and a new path to the stars.

Susan Boyle -What a Reframe!

Posted by admin in susansingnlpboyle

I have just seen and heard on U=Tube Susan Boyle singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Le Miserables. Susan entered the "Britian has Talent" Show. WOW!

In front of the judges and and a hall full of people, she transformed them with her singing and for those minutes she put the room full of people into another frame of meaning.

The clip shows the reaction (mainly through body language) of three judges and members of the audience.

Talk about judging people by their appearances only!

AND THEN SHE SINGS...and transforms the hall full of people into another world.

In NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) there is a key presupposition:

The Map is not the Territory.

Just as a map does not actually consist of the "territory" it represents, the perceptions we have of people (the perception the audience had of Susan Boyle before she sang) can never be the whole story -or in Susan's case:

the whole song. And there's more to her life.

Please enjoy the clip and be uplifted.
