Question: What is Energetic NLP?

Answer:

Energetic NLP is a synthesis of NLP and several energetic systems. It uses the core concepts and presuppositions of NLP and applies them to energetic work. It is a dance: sometimes you may be mostly doing NLP, sometimes mostly energetic work. But your energetic work is always influenced by a the concepts of NLP; and your NLP work is influenced by energetic principles.
For example: most energy systems try to teach you their version of “The Truth.” They tell you, “This is how it is.” In Energetic NLP we say, just as in NLP, that these are models of reality, not “The Truth.” This keeps you from being locked into the limitations of any one system. This allows you keep learning, growing, and developing.

Question: What do you mean by energy?

Answer:

Physicists say that energy is the very fabric of everything in the universe, that is part of the basic structure of everything. Einstein’s famous equation, E=mc2 demonstrated that matter and energy were interchangeable. Energy forms the basic building blocks of all we know, whether it is as physical as steel or as ethereal as an emotion or a belief. It is in everything, including our bodies and spirit. Energy is best understood by experiencing and exploring it, not by putting it into words.

Question: Is the idea that there is a human energy field new?

Answer:

It was written about as long as 5000 years ago. At least 97 cultures have 97 different words for the human energy field. The concept is found not only in the Eastern religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism; but in Christianity and Judaism as well.  It is the basis of acupuncture and many of the martial arts. Religious paintings from many cultures depicted saints with halos of light around their heads.

  • A feeling of being “stuffed up”, and that you can handle more
  • Feeling like you can’t be around people who are stressed or upset
  • Having issues or emotional states that, in spite of your best efforts, you can’t seem to solve

Question: Are my clients absorbing my energy too?

Answer:

It’s very likely that they are absorbing your energy.  Many of us unconsciously give nurturing energy to our clients, friends, family, and loved ones.  The problem is that it depletes us.  You lose access to your own energy.
In Energetic NLP you learn to how to retrieve your energy from them, and replace it with universal energies.

Question: Do I need to be an NLP Practitioner to attend?

Answer:

It is not necessary to be an NLP Practitioner to attend this programme, and a knowledge of NLP will accelerate your learning.

Question: How did Energetic NLP start?

Answer:

Back in 1983, I started studying both NLP and energetic systems. At first I used them separately — in fact, I thought it was “cheating” to use energetic techniques to augment my NLP work. In late 1984, I started to integrate the two systems.

Question: What does it mean to take on other people’s energy?

Answer:

Some energies are like food: they can be digested and used by you. The energy of another human being, on the other hand, is individualized to the person it came from.
When someone receives a heart transplant, they need to take very, very strong drugs to overcome the differences between their body and the other person\’s body. Their own body’s natural reaction is to do battle with something that was originally part of another person. In the same way, other people’s energies in your energy field will battle with your natural energies. They cause problems that you can’t solve, because they are the other person’s problems. All of us take on energy from our parents, loved ones, and other family members. Many of us, especially people in the helping professions, tend to take on energy from our clients and even from strangers.
It doesn\’t mean the energy is “bad” (it is helpful to not judge it) it just means their energy doesn’t agree with you.

Question: I’ve never seen or felt energy before, can I do this?

Answer:

Yes, yes, yes — anyone can do it. You do not have to be able to see or feel energy. In the course of the work you will most likely develop the ability to do so, but you don’t have to be able to do it.
The truth is, you have felt energy before, you just didn’t think of it that way.
Think of a time when you were feeling fine, and then were around a group of people who were angry, upset, or depressed? How did it make you feel? Think of places where you felt uncomfortable: it might be a crowded car on the tube, or a place that has tense or unhappy people in it. You probably can remember places or people that when you are there you feel uncomfortable or headachy or just don\’t like it. Something about the energy is bothering you,
Think of people that when you around them you tend to good. (Even if you don’t know them or even speak with them).
Are there places you go that make you feel good? Certain people that it feels better after they come into a room? Often that is out in nature; it might be in a place of worship; it might be in a particular room in your home or a particular spot in your garden &mdash all you know is that when you are there you feel good. The first time I went to the city of Bath, I noticed that at certain locations in and around Bath I felt really good for no apparent reason.
By telling people they have problems from other people’s energy, isn’t that giving them a negative unconscious suggestion?
Many people started studying NLP because they were concerned about some “problem” in their life. Concern about your present and future well being is a good reason to start studying Energetic NLP. In NLP, we learn to help people with the skill of creating positive compelling futures — and we also help them with the skill of creating negative compelling futures (see the book, Know How, for a great discussion on this). Those of you who are in danger from absorbing other people’s energies are in danger whether you are warned about it or not. The difference that makes a difference is that now you have the opportunity to do something about it!
