Imagery technique

The imagery technique is especially for beginners who have just stepped into the NLP techniques. In this, you need to create an imaginary image of what you want to achieve. For instance, if you want a particular job, you need to see yourself working at that place with the same job role you want. The picture should be clear and you should focus on every minute detail such as your cabin, dress you are wearing, the task you are completing, and everything in your surroundings. It will help you develop confidence and work hard towards your goal.

Swish technique

It is the high-level technique that helps you dominate your brain with positive memories and weakens negative memories. First, create the negative memory that troubles you the most. Play it in your mind vividly and clearly. Now, play it in reverse by adding the sound of swish or smash in the background and think of your favorite memory in your brain. Imagine the positive memory taking place of negative memory like an image replaces the other one. Repeat the process two to three times. It will help you keep positive things alive in your brain.

Mirroring technique

This technique considers the rule of 7-38-55. According to this rule, our message to the other person is delivered 7% through words, 38% through by the tone of voice, and 55% by body language. The mirror technique helps us create a connection with whom we are communicating by working on our body language.

According to the NLP practitioner, we need to focus on the body language of the person with whom we are communicating and reflect the same in our body language. If they are super excited, we must get on their level to maintain the conversation and the energy. If they sound depressed, then we should reflect the sympathetic image. Therefore, the mirroring technique implies that we should reflect the other person’s image for learning better communication.
