Any relationship which exists in our life is fraught with misunderstandings and misinterpretations because, unless we ask, we automatically make assumptions based on our perspective of the world. This is driven, in turn, by our internal map built up through our experiences, memories, beliefs, and bias.
Over the years, I’ve heard a number of people refer to and start accreditations in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and I confess there was always a little natural curiosity. Mostly sceptical and suspicious! I’m a pretty intuitive person and always felt that I’d be better served following my own instincts. A close friend undertook the Practitioner course and I came to the realisation that everything she talked about resonated and the following is what I came to understand.
I've recently been travelling in Central America and whilst we were on an early morning hike, one of my group started jumping in puddles like a young child, declaring “If you’re ever feeling sad, just put on your wellies!”
