I began to move my body, allowing myself to dance before I started my chores at home. In a few days one project that had been sitting for months was finished. By the end of the month I'd even opened a savings account! Action Step Gently expose and begin to dissolve the hard rocks that are lodged in your thinking patterns.

As wittily pointed out by Jerry Seinfeld, that means that the average person would rather be in the coffin at any funeral than give the eulogy! This post, written by Rachel Coffey, will show you how, using a mixture of NLP and her professional experience with this condition, she deals with the fear of public speaking. The big news is, you should adjust the perception for good by using NLP and being consciously aware of how you approach the fear of public speaking, mentally and physically. After all, presentation skills are about being present! Let's dispel a few myths. I often hear people say when they're nervous. They think they have to 'control' their voice. This often leads to an already tense person becoming even tenser, which in turn makes it more difficult to sound at ease and natural. What we aim for is our voice to be free and expressive, so think about 'releasing' the tension instead of 'control. Support your health.

Let it be said at the very outset that in the present state of our knowledge we do not really know what is the essential process of therapy. We have become more and more deeply impressed with the many ramifications of the process, and the way in which it takes on different meanings depending upon the point of view of the observer, but we recognize that its definitive description is still a task for the future. Rather than dogmatically attempting to make perfectly clear that which is not perfectly clear, it seems best to present the many hypotheses which are currently held in regard to the process of client-centered therapy, and the research evidence which supports some of them. Perhaps the very variety of the hypotheses will serve to broaden professional thinking and will stimulate the discovery of more accurate and inclusive hypotheses. In a general way, therapy is a learning process. Mowrer (136, 138) has effectively helped to point this out, as have others (190, 191, 184, 185). The client learns new aspects of himself, new ways of relating to others, new ways of behaving. But what, precisely, is learned, and why? This is what we would like to know. It is not enough to take learning theory as it has been developed from studies of rats, or from experiments with nonsense syllables, and impose it upon the process of therapy. Crosscurrents and Undertows Unlike canyons and rapids, crosscurrents and undertows are difficult to spot from the shore. They show up once you are actually in the River of Gold and wondering why you are not progressing as planned. Crosscurrents require lots of extra work for you to even stay in place, so life becomes a struggle to maintain your position, let alone move forward. Undertows actually take you backward, away from your dreams and goals. Both represent values, belongings, thoughts, emotions, and actions that are out of alignment for each of the five currents. These dilemmas are calling out to be faced with a full-body approach. They can be accepted, embraced, and loved, and put in their proper place like all feng shui alignment challenges. Classic monetary crosscurrents would be a missing feng shui Wealth Area in your office or home when you say you want to create more abundance. You have been living with it outside of your space.

You need the energy to work from food, so be sure to eat healthy foods that will fuel you all day long. Opt for lots of colorful veggies and fruits. Step up and move.

Adults allow seven to nightly sleep to relax and refresh their mind and body, according to The National Sleep Foundation. Learn the boundaries. Giving time can be difficult, energy, and resources required to do everything. The rich experience of therapy has much to contribute to our knowledge of what is significant learning, as well as having much to gain from integrating previous knowledge of learning into the known facts about therapy. Hence, in the present state of the psychological sciences we are left with many more questions than answers as to the process and content of the learning which takes place in psychotherapy. In such a situation it seems best to look, as closely as we can, at the facts as we have them, whether they are clinical observations or verified research findings. Consequently, in the material which follows there are grouped, under convenient general headings, some of the changes which are known to be, or hypothesized to be, characteristic parts of this therapeutic learning process, characteristic aspects of what is thought of as the movement of the client in therapy. The order of presentation is not significant, except that some of the aspects for which we have the most research evidence have been placed first. Following these descriptive formulations, which in some instances overlap and in some instances appear to contradict each other, an inclusive theory of the process of therapy will be presented which, it is hoped, is sufficient to contain the evidence thus far available. CHARACTERISTIC CHANGE OR MOVEMENT IN THERAPY In Type of Material Presented One of the first aspects of the therapeutic process to be studied by research methods was the movement in the type of verbal content presented by the client. It was observed that though the individual first tended to talk about his problems and his symptoms for a majority of the time, this type of talk tended to be replaced, as therapy progressed, by insightful statements showing some understanding of relationships between his past and present behavior and between current behaviors.

Without your awareness, you have been telling yourself that financial abundance is not important in your life. Your unconscious intention has been to be without wealth and abundance since it is missing from your space. Spend some time in quiet meditation considering what your heart's desires are and what actual feng shui cures would work for you and your space. Remember that one feng shui cure placed with intention is more powerful than several different cures placed quickly and haphazardly. You may realize that nothing in your work space is set up so you can actually work with ease or keep track of multiple projects. The tension in your body increases as you work due to the nonergonomic placement of your desk, chair, telephone, computer, and body. Another crosscurrent is when you lose things, forcing you to spend your precious time hunting for something rather than creating a more positive flow. You are there at work, so on the surface you appear to be working and creating more flow toward abundance, but in reality you are unable to complete work-related tasks, such as finished projects, quick solutions to a challenge, answers for a customer, and billable hours. Instead, you spend your time in the energy of a crosscurrent heading off to another destination. Action Step Be frank with yourself, and when you have to, say no. You are seeking ways to break down. Everyone needs time to do something for themselves every day, so find ways to integrate breaks all day long. Whether you're walking, talking to a friend, or reading a article, take a couple of minutes every day to do something you enjoy and unwind. Social Impact of NLP Negative energy from self. NLP helps individuals lower their levels of stress, resolve anxiety, and incorporate positive feelings into themselves. NLP uses dissociation to help individuals resolve fears and phobias. In general, conventional methods take years to cure the phobia: better soft skills and improved confidence and order in tasks such as public speaking. With others and even yourself to resolve various conflicts, the NLP has been credited.

Still later there seemed to be an increase in the discussion by the client of the new actions which were in accord with his new understanding of the situation. This process of exploration of feelings and attitudes related to the problem areas, followed by increased insight and self-understanding, followed by discussion of reoriented behavior in terms of the new insights, was the sequence most emphasized by the writer in describing client-centered therapy in his earlier article (166). There is now considerable objective evidence to back up this description. Snyder, in a study completed in 1943 (196, 197), and Seeman, six years later (180), found very similar results. Statements falling within the category of discussion of problem declined, in the latter study, from 52 per cent of the total client conversation during the first fifth of counseling, to 29 per cent during the final fifth. Statements of insights and changed perceptions experienced as a result of counseling increased from 4 per cent in the first fifth to 19 per cent in the concluding quintile. The discussion of plans, which usually involved a reorientation of behavior, was almost nonexistent during the first three-fifths of counseling, hovering between 1 and 2 per cent, but rose to nearly 5 per cent during the last quintile. A more complete factual picture of Seeman's findings is given in the accompanying Table I. Snyder's study was based on an analysis of the several thousand client statements in six cases, and Seeman's upon ten cases, all electrically recorded. The reliability of categorization by different judges was high, the Seeman investigation showing 87 per cent concordance in judgment on the content categories we have been discussing, and 76 per cent concordance in categorizing the attitudes mentioned below. First, look around for what is missing or out of alignment in your space and life. Engage your Creative Current and really explore your work area.
