What kinds of feelings do you want more of?
You’ve probably heard of Ivan Pavlov – you know the guy who rang a bell and the dogs salivated? Cos they were hungry? He’d show them some meat and while they were gagging for it he’d ring a bell. Eventually he could just ring the bell and have no meat present, and the dogs would salivate. Yeah? (It was actually a tuning fork but let’s not be picky). That was an anchor – the bell became the anchor.
At school the bell was an anchor. t was either time for you to get back in there and into your class, or it was time for you to get out of there and get home as quickly as possible. Or maybe you were late, and the bell became an anchor for how little time you’ve got to get down the road and into school. Remember this stuff?
We can all think of things that act as triggers in our lives- that whenever they happen they fire off certain states. Maybe a song that you hear that puts you into a sad state, cos last time you heard that song you were in a sad state, and the two became neurologically linked. Or maybe there’s a particular smell (and the perfume industry knows this one) that whenever you smell it you go into a nice, pleasant state.
These are anchors – triggers that are hard wired into your neurology, so you have no conscious control when they’re fired off – you’ll go into that state automatically. Imagine that! Now if it’s a nice state than we’ll leave it alone, but if it’s a negative one, there are ways to collapse the anchor, or neutralise it, so it doesn’t control you anymore. We show you how to do that, which means no longer are you one of Pavlov’s dogs – you’re no longer a conditioned animal, you actually have a choice about it & you can choose not to react.
In my history there was a village that I’d drive through, and every time I did I went into a negative state, because of what I associated to that place, even though those events happened 20 years ago! Wouldn’t it be great to be able to cancel it out so it doesn’t affect you? You can probably think of some triggers like that, yes? Songs or pictures or things that maybe flash into your head….
Equally it’s very useful to be able to set positive anchors. Maybe you’d like to be more excited more often, or more driven more often. Imagine if you could basically have that state “on tap” and anytime you wanted to feel that way you could fire it off, and you’d go into that state. That then begs the question – what kinds of emotional states would you like to feel more often? Because we can show you how to anchor them into yourself so you can go into those feelings anytime you want to.
Here’s how you can do this
The way I do this is, I give you the entire course up-front on audio CD. So, you can listen to that at your own pace before you come on the training-course. That’s actually your apprenticeship. You know, you listen to the CDs at your own leisure and you can learn what you want to learn, read the manual, get your head around the concepts, re-listen to it as many times as you want. So, by the time you actually come to the course, your conscious mind’s like a formatted disc, it’s got the basic ground-rules all laid down.
What’s going to happen now is that you’re going to spend the 8 days actually doing the stuff and being taken through it by myself and by HGE™ Practitioners and Master Practitioners who already use these methods. So, your conscious mind is fully prepared, and your unconscious mind can then just learn like a learning-machine.
You will be really surprised how well you’ll pick it up, because on some level you’ve already heard it before. It also deepens your knowledge, because you can leave the course and re-listen to the CD set, which, as you probably know, the more often you hear the deeper it sticks. It means you also have a permanent reference library, you can always go back if you want to brush up on re-framing for instance, or something else. You can dig the discs out again and listen to them, just to keep your skills up.
If this has piqued your curiosity – give me a call or email me and we can have a chat first.
So this is Jonathan Clark. Thanks for watching the video, take care, bye!
