Negative emotions are generated from bad experiences. They tend to remain with us withholding us to move forward. They can cause you to be sad and miserable. They can increase stress and anxiety. NLP is a very simple and effective tool to handle negative emotions in a healthy way.
Sit comfortably in a chair and close your eyes. Think of that negative emotion. Now, see where you feel it in your body.
Feel the sensation in your body. See in what direction it is spinning if it is moving at all.
Make that movement with your hands in front of you. Try to see what color that feeling has.
Now increase the speed of the movement.
Now remove that feeling and place it out of your body in front of you and keep on making the movement with your hands.
Now reverse the direction of movement. Then change the color to sky blue.
So now it is moving in the opposite direction and it is sky blue. Keep on doing it. Now place it back inside the body.
Keep it moving in the opposite direction with sky blue color. Keep making the movement with your hands.
Now remember a time when you were laughing. Remember that happy feeling.
Now stop the movement with your hands and just feel that feeling of happiness and joy.
Let that feeling get stronger inside your body. Let that happy feeling spread throughout your body.
Now take a deep breath and out through your mouth releasing all the stress and tension from your body.
Now slowly open your eyes. You could feel a bit lost but that is okay.
Now try to remember that negative emotion and you will see that you will actually laugh. The more you try to remember the more you will laugh. The more you try the more you will laugh.
This technique can be applied on anyone. Individual results may vary but it is still effective.
