New Code NLP

John Grinder (co-creator of NLP) on New Code NLP

“The New Code is a set of patterns developed in the mid - 80s by myself John Grinder with contributions initially by Judith Delozier and subsequently by Carmen Bostic St. Clair. The motivations for the creation of the New Code are multiple and include a recognition that the coding of patterning I accomplished with Richard Bandler in the creation of NLP contained a number of serious coding flaws.

  • 1. The unconscious of the client is explicitly assigned the responsibility for the selection of the critical elements - the desired state, the resource, or the new behaviours.
  • 2. The unconscious is explicitly involved in all critical steps.
  • 3. These are precise constraints placed upon the selection of new behaviour(s); more specifically, the new behaviours(s) must satisfy the original positive intention(s) of the behaviour(s) to be changed.
  • 4. The manipulation occurs at the level of state and intention as opposed at the level of behaviours.

Further, experiences with these patterns of unconscious access seem to lead to what we have come to call the disciplined know-nothing state.

One of the fundamental strategies behind the new code was to develop a set of activities or games which lead naturally to the activation in the player of a content free, high performance state

In the classic code patterning, the new code takes the design variables of the classic code format to the extreme for example the resource state in the New Code are created by a game or task that activates a content free high performance state which has no historical experiences attached. A fundamental aspect of New Code NLP is creating choice in your own life to freely have access to high performance states."

  • You are more than what you think you are. In order to access that part of you, which is a storehouse of resources, it is vital to activate and access your unconscious mind. You will learn fun ways of doing so by simply playing a set of games and activities. The games are designed to invoke a high performance state and a ‘know nothing state’ in the person as they surprise themselves of how much better their quality of life can be and how easy it is for them to reach their peak potential just by playing New Code NLP games. The state activated comes directly from the unconscious mind and the unconscious mind is more than 6000 times powerful than conscious mind. It also bypasses the need to work on secondary gain and belief system.
  • Statistics show that when decisions taken from “gut instinct” are often correct unless seen from a shorter time frame. You will learn ways to access your “gut instinct”.
  • Activating the healer within - Taking the assistance of the unconscious mind for healing health related issues or to accelerate the healing process of any physical and physiological issue.
  • Taking assistance of the unconscious mind to filter out anything that questions the health and well- being when we are in situations that may affect us.
    (The filter that you will learn, took John Grinder 6 months to develop before undertaking the modeling project of modeling Dr Milton H Erickson since Dr Erickson had a lot of health issues and John Grinder did not wish to get those issues since his modeling project would involve deep contact and relationship with Dr Erickson)
  • Right – Brain oriented model of coaching. A lot of coaching models are left brain oriented and donot take into account the key for success and change is infact the right-brain which involves the use of unconscious mind since for deep and lasting change to occur, the unconscious mind is involved. Hence, there are ample of books written on the lines of – power of unconcsious mind You will learn Right-Brain oriented coaching and integrate it with Classic Code NLP.
  • Epistemology – how we know, what we (think) we know. (An updated model of communication)
  • Learn the precision model of eliciting information from anyone and thereby enabling a miscommunication and achieve more rapport. (Especially in the business context)
  • Content free healing - Learn tools to let go deep emotional issues even without them sharing with one another what the context was.
  • We often react rather than respond to situations. By reacting and being engulfed with an emotion, it causes uneasiness to self and others involved. Mastery over emotions plays a vital role in enabling you to respond and deal with situations in a much more empowered manner.
    You will learn ways to keep in check with your emotions so that you respond rather than react to situations.

    Kindly note: You will not learn to “erase” emotions since emotions can be appropriate in an appropriate situation when you have operated out of choice.

    As John Grinder would say - “Anger is an appropriate state in an appropriate context when operated out of choice”.
