Welcome to Reality... (like real reality) Just kidding.. lol
You are 100% correct!
Through Studying NLP, DHE, NHR you will realize how malleable our belief systems really are and how they effect us, our thoughts and actions.
(Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Design Human Engineering, Neuro-Hypnotic Reprogramming)
a good example of *some* of the techniques can be seen in action, used by Derren Brown
You'll have to do some digging around to find any seminar videos by the creator of NLP (Richard Bandler) .. although there is a good video called
"The Hypnotist" it isn't at all a training video or anything to learn anything from... more or less just seeing some of the processes..
on a much more occult level, we are being controlled, and programmed and reprogrammed daily, every turn.
The power comes from having the same tools, so you can deconstruct and reconstruct your own & others realities.
It is my prediction that NLP and all of its off-shoots will become the most widely taught and sought after tools for personal and group change; right
now it's like the best kept secret, only the elite, and richer entertainment type folk are keen on it right now, that and the-rape-ists.. I mean
Through the Meta model (gaining specificity), the Milton model (after Milton H. Erickson clinical hypnotherapist), and the representational systems
and accessing cues one can do literally magically things with (anyone) but more specifically people who are having difficulties in their life... the
thing is any of this can be used to manipulate and "mess" with people as well (that is, if they don't know any of it whatsoever)
You can always get the wiki version of NLP (as we all know wiki can be incorrect and I haven't gone over the whole page to check for errors so don't
use that as your only research resource.
Wikipedia - NLP
Maybe I'll let everyone go over that and we can talk further at that stage.
