Neuro Linguistic Pick-me-up
Nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease…with carefreeness, harmony and love. And when we harness the forces of harmony, joy and love, we create success and good fortune with effortless ease.
~ Dr. Deepak Chopra
Want to attract abundance? Feeling good is irrestibly attractive. Try these easy tricks from neuro linguistic programming for a quick emotional pick-me-up.
We all have those days: someone dinged your car, the computer crashed, or that person who knows how to push your buttons… pushed your buttons! Know what I’m talking about? Usually it’s not the events themselves that are so devastating; it’s our reaction that does the damage. It’s hard to tap into your wisdom and creativity when you are feeling stressed out, pissed off, or helpless. It’s really hard to attract what you want when you want to blow up the world. Try these quick and easy tricks from neuro linguistic programming to feel good fast.
The quickest tricks I’ve learned come from Neuro Linguistic Programming. Here are some NLP-ish tricks to flip your state:
1) The easiest: look up with your eyes. Nerves are kinesthetic, and your eyes will look down to the left (or the right) when you tap into your feelings. When you look up instead, you interrupt the neuropathway of those negative emotions.
2) Turn your attention to your heart and breathing. Then think of someone you love. Feel the love. Now turn your attention to the task at hand. This is another way to interrupt the neurology of negativity and replace it with feelings of love, expansiveness, and centeredness. Doesn’t that feel good?
3) Create a “resource anchor.” In Neuro Linguistics, this is a process of tapping into the feelings you want to have (power, confidence, flexibility, etc) and connecting them to a unique behavior (like touching a knuckle, or tugging on an ear). Remember or imagine an event that makes you feel the desired feeling. Do the behavior when the feeling is strongest. Over and over again. Program yourself so that when you want to feel good, all you have to do is touch your knuckle and it will all come back to you!
And one bonus tip: before a potentially stressful event, rehearse it going the way you want it to. And see yourself responding quickly and elegantly to any surprises or curve balls that might show up. This helps you create a strategy for success, and success feels good!

This was very helpful advice. I’m trying to figure out where I can put this so that it’s always handy. 🙂
Love especially the first tip – I don’t think it gets any easier than that!

I have been told (I suffer from PTSD due to abuse as a child and adult) that when a traumatic event happens the brain shuts it out until it feels as though you can handle it and deal with it. Eventually it does come out…mine did when I was in my 20’s and I had to start dealing with things. The brain is a complicated thing.
