  14. 14. Part 3- NLP Techniques 13 Anchoring * Anchors are stimuli that call forth states of mind - thoughts and emotions. For example, touching a knuckle of the left hand could be an anchor. Some anchors are involuntary. So the smell of bread may take you back to your childhood. A tune may remind you of a certain person. A touch can bring back memories and the past states. These anchors work automatically and you may not be aware of the triggers. * Establishing an anchor means producing the stimuli (the anchor) when the resourceful state is experienced so that the resourceful state is pared to the anchor. For example, touching the knuckle of the left hand when the resourceful state is experienced to pair the two events. * Activating or firing the anchor means producing the anchor after it has been conditioned so that the resourceful state occurs. For example, touching the knuckle of the left hand after the anchor has been established so that this action produced the resourceful state.
  15. 15. Part 3- NLP Techniques 14 Examples of Anchors Visual Anchors, external or internal Auditory Anchors Kinesthetic Anchors. Visual, Kinesthetic and Auditory Anchors You can use external or internal anchors. For example, you could use a figure on a bracelet to anchor being calm and relaxed. The external anchor always has to be there for you to use. You may find it relaxing and calming to view a certain landscape. Difficult to carry around, but you can however use an internal image of the landscape to anchor your resourceful feeling. You can use a sound as an anchor. Like the visual anchors, sounds can be internal or external. You can use an internal voice as an anchor. For example, you could anchor the phrase 'Calm and Relaxed'. Examples of kinesthetic anchors are: Imagining a comforting hand on your shoulder You can use a combination of anchors such as seeing a certain symbol in your mind's eye. Most visual designer anchors are internal. Some examples of visual anchors are symbols. For example, you could use a circle as a symbol for being calm and relaxed and anchor this to your state. An external auditory anchor could be a word, a sound, a certain music, … Making a circle with the second finger and the thumb Hearing something said - for example, Calm and Relaxed. And Press your hand in a special place.
