New Code NLP Life Coach certification day in Sesimbra end of June 2018, working with co-student Emanuele.
The 8-day Life Coach training by John Grinder and Michael Carroll was life-changing, eye-opening and, honestly, exhausting!
These guys have unbelievable energy: most days we worked for 12 hours.
A lot of practice, demonstrations by our teachers, explanations on the New Code NLP processes.
The practices include high energy games to bring yourself into high performance states. Those states re-wire you brain to get rid of your problem states. The science behind shows that you can get rid of OCD, depression, through the NLP meta-process.
Easy to deal with smaller issues therefore – in the group, we blasted many of them!
Oh yes, I worked on myself as well. And I swam in the 15 degrees Celsius ocean there in order to get my body to release my food allergies. Does that sound weird to you? Well, it is a real “Ericksonian” intervention, one of the greatest and most successful therapists of the past century. Daunting tasks shift your perspective and change your state into a high performance one.
You get a choice: get a kick out of it, or suffer. The “kick” choice is more fun. Those of you doing edgy sports will know this.
For me as an NLP adapt it was a real honor to be 6-step reframed by John Grinder himself. 😉
And speaking about living on the edge: as a 78-year old he still practices rock-climbing, horse-riding, ice-climbing: check out his hands and strong physique on pictures! Definitely a role-model, for us mere mortals.
After an intense week, I thought I was done coaching and left for a couple of days off to Lisbon.
However, early the next morning, upon taking the metro to the old town… I found myself doing a Heimlich on a lady who was choking. One of those moments that seemed to last a life-time, while taking probably only a minute.
She came out shaking all over, and breathing freely.
Life Coach indeed! 😉
