Transforming Self-Talk with the Power of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Welcome to my new blog!  I’m excited to have a single place to share my experiences and knowledge as I share my health journey with you!

To start us off, I wanted to share some of my experience with The Power of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and why it's important for wellness.

Do any of these phrases sound familiar?

"What's wrong with me?"

"Why can't I just...?"

"I'll never be..."

"I wish I could...

I think many of us were raised in a culture that taught us to have respect for others, be careful how you speak to those in authority, say "please" and "thank you", but I personally don't recall being taught how to speak to myself. And what is often modeled to us is language that revolves around shame and guilt, so that's the language we convince ourselves will work for us. 

When I was sick with Breast Implant Illness, and even after my explant surgery, I struggled with depression. I was emotionally tired on a deep soul level. Tired of my body not responding the way I wanted, tired of explaining my symptoms to doctors, tired of just feeling like each day was just another day to "get through."  As I sat in my depression I started to realize the language I was using wasn't doing me any favors. I called myself fat. I said my body was broken, I convinced myself that my body had rejected me on some level... 

The Power of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

When I discovered NLP (which was right smack in the midst of my worst BII symptoms), I had a huge awakening - if I didn't change my language and my limiting beliefs, I wasn't going to heal my body.  Our mind is the "Program for Success" and that's a fact. 

To be totally transparent, as I look back, getting my certification in NLP saved my life in a way.  It encouraged a shift in my thinking, my beliefs and the internal dialogue I was having with myself. 

This is why I incorporate NLP into my wellness programs. This is what separates my programs from others. Because honestly, there is no single program that's the BEST.  There are many great programs out there, but success is determined by you - and hopefully a supportive coach that helps guide you.
