Remapping with NLP

There is much talk and discussion about reassigning the brain through the use of NLP. But what exactly does this mean? Remapping the brain is a way of changing the paths your thoughts take to control your reactions to a given situation. Your brain is a complex system of pathways that are facilitated by electrical impulses sent between neurons. It has taken scientists and therapists many years to discover exactly how the brain works and how these pathways affect us. Fortunately, you don’t have to know all the medical explanations to understand how important NLP can be in helping you achieve what you want in life.

To understand how NLP reassignment can help, you must first understand the essentials of how pathways work in the mind in a general sense. When you are shown a picture of, say, a snake, your brain immediately assesses what your reactions should be. If you are afraid of snakes, you will recoil in fear. However, if you like snakes, you will see the image in a completely different way. What happens is that your subconscious mind decides which school of thought to follow. More generally, this is known as “fight or flight” syndrome. Would it make sense to fight in a certain situation or to flee from it? All of this is determined by the pathways your thought patterns travel.

The science of NLP has shown that your thoughts can travel in one direction, making you fear whatever is being shown to you or that you like. And after that first fork in the brain’s roadmap, there are plenty of others. These forks and branches form the complete network or roadmap of the brain. They are made up of your life experiences. Every emotion you experience is another cobble in the path of your brain. However, as in the highway system of any city on earth, you can change the layout of the roads by changing the course of where the cobblestones are located. NLP can do this for the brain map.

Since we know the basic pathway of the brain from NLP, we know how to enter and resurface the road system to form a completely different map. This is accomplished by instilling a new set of perceived experiences. As you have already read, each paving stone is created by the emotions that we experience throughout life. Through the use of hypnosis, a therapist can reach into the subconscious mind and change the way these experiences are perceived, thereby changing the design of the pavers. This, in turn, will change the entire map of your mind. If the suggestion is implanted that, in a very basic form, when you view a snake, you are not afraid, then the very first fork in the road will be changed, which means every fork that would have been navigated after are no longer in question. That is the power of NLP.

This is a very simple example of how using NLP to remap the brain works. Obviously, it takes many sessions to navigate all the available paths for your thoughts to travel and change them all. This example is simplistic to say the least, however the basic principle remains the same. When a therapist can change the pathways of the brain, he changes the end result of the reaction that the body takes to the pathways that its thoughts take. That’s how NLP it can remap the brain and cause a more desired outcome in any life situation.
