1 important technique to do with sub modalities, is the swish. The swish technique, is the I deal technique to use when you want to change a behaviour or a negative emotion that is triggered in some context. For example whenever you are looking at a rough bit on your fingernail and you start almost automatically to bite your fingernail. Or whenever you look at a telephone in your office and start to automatically feel nervous about making a cold call. These sorts of triggers. These sort of triggers and we can transform easily through using the swish technique.
Technique with the swishing we want to create a new and far more empowering 5th future to move towards. With the swish technique we once to 1st of all find out the trigger that triggers someone into the un-resource for state. We make a picture of that trigger and then we find out how the person would like to feel or behave instead. We then get the person to make a picture of how they would like to feel or behave instead and make that picture as desirable as possible. The picture about how they want to be must be truly compelling. The person house to really want it. Then we get the person to bring back the trigger picture, the 1st picture, and but the desired image in the lower left-hand corner. Then we will get the person to make that small dark picture in the lower left-hand corner, the desired picture, to grow very big and bright as fast as they can. So basically with the the person will replace the unwanted picture desired picture. We will repeat this several times until automatically the person will think about the new picture as soon as they are in a situation where they used to feel or behave in the way they didn’t want to.
So in the future the person will find that they no longer behave or feel the way they used to. Instead they now feel resource full or have behaviours which are what they want. The swish technique is great for changing unwanted habits like nailbiting or eating chocolate bars that you really shouldn’t! It is also a great way to change how you feel about things that in the past have triggered you into an unwanted state.
