Collapsing Anchors is a technique that is used to get rid of unwanted anchors that we have in life. I mean negative emotional reactions we have to specific triggers in life. For example every time you hear a particular person’s voice and you feel anxious or you feel some other negative emotion and it puts you into an unresourceful state. Everyone has certain triggers in life that seem to change their emotions automatically. If you could change those reactions it would benefit you an immensely. If we could choose how to respond rather than just respond, that would be pretty powerful, wouldn’t it?
Collapse anchors is a technique that can easily help to get rid of those negative emotional reactions and leave us feeling more resourceful in any situation. The amazing thing about this technique is that it can work in just a few minutes. And that means that we can banish those negative emotional reactions once and for all very easily.
The way that collapse anchors works, is that we anchor the negative emotional state in one location, and then we anchor a powerful positive emotional state in another location and then we fire off both anchors at the same time until the negative anchor collapses.
We can think of emotions as waves – the positive emotion has a positive charge whereas the negative emotion has a negative charge. Now we know that when a wave meets another way if the peak of the wave meets the trough of the other wave they cancel each other out. This is the same principle in collapse anchors-what we do is we fire off the positive emotion and we fire the negative emotion at the same time and having the different charge is like the peak meets the trough, and as a person can only experience one emotion at a time we are left without the negative reaction in a specific context.
And that means that we can respond differently in any of those situations. For the technique to work there are many important things that need to be done. Anchoring is a skill and an art. It is an art and a science. Many people find that when they try anchoring it doesn’t always seem to work. Particularly if they have only learned NLP from a book, audio program, or of course where the principles aren’t fully explained. When you understand the principles for anchoring, anchoring is incredibly powerful. I’ve seen people on my courses where they have learned anchoring somewhere else, and thought that anchoring didn’t work. But when they understand the important principles, such as timing and intensity and uniqueness, suddenly they find anchoring is incredibly powerful. That’s why to learn anchoring you need to attend a good NLP course.
