Today on the NLP Practitioner training we have been teaching anchoring. This is all about emotions that get linked to triggers.
For example, have you got a piece of music that whenever you hear it it makes you feel a certain way?
Or maybe every time you smell a particular perfume it puts you in a certain state?
Neurologially we link things together – so whenever you are in an intense emotion, if there is a specific stimulus presented at the same time (like a piece of music, or someone’s expression), the two things will get linked up and the next time you see, hear or feel that stimulus, then you will tend to get into the same state.
