Stephen was recommended to me by a mutual friend who simply summarised his situation with the following words: Stephen’s going through massive changes in his life and he is overwhelmed. He needs some direction.
During our first session I collected as much information as possible, and there was a lot to collect on both where Stephen was currently at in his life and where he would like to be.
We clearly identified limiting beliefs, negative emotions and old patterns that he wanted to shift.
When Stephen arrived for our 2nd session he expressed a distinct desire to be able to read. Having suffered from dyslexia at a very early age and requiring reading glasses long before anyone actually realised this, his brain had simply ‘switched off’ when it came to reading lines and lines of text.
Stephen would pick up a book and his mind would do a ‘shut down’ process, similar to what we do when we switch off a computer nowadays, and so he would often just fall asleep.
Using NLP we carried out a timeline process which allowed Stephen to step into a specific memory and re-experience it with the understanding, resources and maturity he has today as a grown up man. 25 minutes later the process was over, Stephen appeared calmer and more at ease about the event.
A few hours later I received an amazing text message from Stephen telling me he had been sitting on the train READING all the way home and he was still wide awake!
Some time later, Stephen raised another related issue. Now that he was reading he found he was not able to read all the words correctly, he noticed this specifically when he read out loud.
With one simple question that I asked him, he discovered that he still had a limiting belief that he ‘could not read’. We carried out a brief process to clear this limiting belief and then he picked up a book and read to me out loud, clearly, correctly and so easily!
In his own words: “I’ve been truly astonished by the dramatic and permanent change that I have found in my reading abilities, it has not only shocked myself but also all of my family and friends.”
