NLP Hypnotherapy Gold Coast. Neuro Linguistic Programming - online tuition available.
In this article I am going to give you a quick introduction to the NLP Meta Model. I have a thirty year background in NLP, Hypnotherapy and Meditation – and if there is only one thing out of all of that, that I could leave you with then it would have to be the NLP Meta Model. The Meta Model is the most powerful linguistic tool that is available to mankind. It gives you the power to challenge everything for the truth. You sometimes hear people say that knowledge is power yet knowledge ‘aint’ worth shit unless you can apply it – and then what if that knowledge is just not true? The application of that knowledge is going to take you in the wrong direction.
What you need is a tool – a linguistic tool – so that you can challenge everything for the truth.
And that tool is the NLP Meta Model
The NLP Meta Model was developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, and first published in The Structure of Magic, Volume 1 in 1975. It was updated by Michael Hall and published in the book Communication Magic in 2001. It gives you a set of questions to help you improve your communication skills and gather high quality information. Use it to find out what people actually mean by their communication not what you think they mean.
- Learn to pursue a process of inquiry.
- Gather high quality information.
- Improve your communication skills.
- Make better decisions.
- Get better outcomes and reach higher levels of success.
- Have better relationships. Make sure you spend your life with the right people.
- Resolve conflict and facilitate peaceful outcomes.
- And if you are interested then use it to make more money.
There are three easy steps to learning the Meta Model:
1. Learn what a sentence looks like when it has what we call a meta model violation.
2. Create sentences which contain those violations.
3. Craft a response.
It might sound like head stuff but in fact it is a lot of fun and when you think of how you can use the Meta Model to transform your life, your relationships, your career and the world then I know that one day you will have a sense of gratitude, just like me, and will want to share the power that it gives you, to get from the back seat into the drivers seat of your life.
My sincere belief is that if the NLP Meta Model was taught at schools and universities there would be a lot less conflict in the world; less domestic violence; less terrorism, fewer wars, less inequality and more justice, fairness and harmony. I am committed to popularising the NLP Meta Model throughout the world and especially amongst the younger people – school kids, teenagers and young adults. If you are a teenager and you want to really learn how to playfully torture your parents and teachers then you need to learn the NLP Meta Model.
What is the next step?
Subscribe to my youtube channel and watch each of the videos in order. Get together with a couple of your friends and practice the exercises. Then look for opportunities to practise the NLP Meta Model on social networking sites. Use the NLP Meta Model at home with your parents, and at school and university to ask intelligent questions of your teachers that will make them squirm, as follows.
1. On youtube a feminist addressing the United Nations said, “Everything is racist. Everything is sexist. Everything is homophobic”.
The word “everything” is what we call a Universal Quantifier so we reply, “Everything?” And we keep challenging the speaker until they back down and give us some specific examples of what they mean.
2. The Atlantic slave trade was the most terrible.
In this statement we challenge the word “most”. It is a Comparative Deletion. Something is missing so we might say, “most terrible? Compared to what?”
3. A fat feminist on a talk show said, “The thin culture makes women eat more and get fat”.
Once we stop laughing we challenge the word “makes”. This is a Cause and Effect Meta Model violation. We might ask, “How specifically does the thin culture make women eat more and get fat?” And we could challenge “thin culture” which is a Nominalisation and ask, “What specifically is the thin culture?”
4. A Muslim man said, “Democracy caused the suicide bomber to blow himself up in a car in the city of Stockholm”.
Once again we have a Cause and Effect Meta Model violation. The key word is “caused”. So we ask, “How specifically did the nominalisation “democracy” cause the man to blow himself up? Here we began the process of finding out what the man means by “democracy” and how an abstraction can make you do something.
5. The heading, “Black lives matter”.
This can be seen as a statement of acknowledgement by a group of people who define themselves as Black. The division may or may not be useful. But in this statement there is the Presupposition that the lives of other races do not.
6. An Australian Greens politician said, “Those comments were vile and disgusting, and the man who posted them deserves our condemnation”.
The words “vile, disgusting and condemnation” stand out for us to challenge and get some specific sensory based language.
We could start with a Lost Performative and ask, “Who says the comments are vile and disgusting?”
We could also ask, “What do you mean by ‘vile and disgusting’?”
To ask, “How were the comments ‘vile and disgusting’ would just serve to reinforce the statement”.
We could also ask, “Vile and disgusting compared to what?”
Condemnation is a Nominalisation so we ask what specifically is the process of condemnation that you propose?
7. The heading, “Stop domestic violence against women and children”.
In this statement the Presupposition is that men are the perpetrators and that women do not assault men or children.
8. Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, said, “We can do it”.
We can challenge “it” as an unspecified referential index, and ask, “Do what specifically?”
The pronoun “we” is not specified, so we could ask, “Who specifically is ‘we’?”
We could also challenge the Modal Operator “can” and ask, “How do you know that we are capable?
Can you see how a simple statement like, “We can do it.”, can be so devoid of meaning that no positive action is demonstrated by the government, such that German citizens then take to the streets to do what they think the government should be doing? All because the Chancellor used impoverished language.
9.A feminist said, “We need to make social media like Facebook and Twitter a safe place”.
We could challenge the Lost Performative and ask, “Who says that we need to make social media a safe place? According to whom?”
There is also the question of multi-ordinality – “At what level of abstraction are you using the term ‘safe’?” We could ask, “What is the purpose of social media? What would happen if it was safe? What would happen if it wasn’t safe? A safe place for whom?
10. The burgers are better at our burger franchise.
Here we challenge “better”. Better is a Comparative Deletion so we ask, “Better compared to what?”
11. When you all about Black power but you don’t do nothing.
The first part of the sentence before the but does not make sense. There is a deletion in that there is no verb. I have no idea what this guy is trying to say.
The first part of the sentence is over generalised. “All” is a Universal Quantifier so we could challenge the speaker and ask, “All about?”
We could also ask, “What specifically is all? What do you mean by all?”
We could also try and get some information from “you”, and ask, “Who specifically is ‘you’?”
12. God is love.
This is an example of a Complex Equivalence. Where A=B. The verb to be also comes into play. We could ask, “Has there ever been a time when god did not equal love?” We could also ask, “What else could god mean? What else could love mean?”
We could also demonalise god and love, and ask, “What specifically do you mean by God? What specifically do you mean by love?” There is also a question of multi-ordinality in that at what level of abstraction is the word ‘love’ being used? Love of your car, your dog, your children, your food, of science? Love as in lust? Love as in an emotion? Love as in, “I’d love to learn the Meta Model”.
13. It will work out. I know you can do it.
The Referential Index “it” is not specified. And there is a Mind Read. How does the speaker know that you can do it?
14. Denmark has free health care, free education.
Here we need to specify “health care” and “education.
What type of health care? Western medicine, Naturopathy, Ayurvedic, etc? Does it include cost of pharmaceuticals, health supplements, herbs, etc?
Regards the education. What courses are offered? Can you get free NLP Training?
When you see the word “free” you should see that something is missing. It is like there is a deletion. At times like this we might ask, “What is the question that I need to ask? What do you mean by free? What is the cost of free health care? What are the conditions that need to be met in order to get free health care”.
So that is the end of our introduction to the NLP Meta Model. If you want to help bring about positive change in the world then at every opportunity practise the Meta Model on your teachers, your parents, the people you work with, your friends – and if you have the opportunity, with key people in society like talk show hosts, clergy, priests, corporate leaders and politicians.
