limiting beliefs and replacing them with positive ones, and controlling anger. It can also be used for eliminating fear response to exams in

Anchoring Magic 
Anchoring is a very useful tool in the tool-bag of an NLP
practitioner. Here I present “ANCHOR DANCE”
, a method of anchoring and linking that is both very effective and easy tomaster. Using ANCHOR DANCE, an NLP practitioner (or evena layman with some additional training) can easily changeproblem/undesirable states or responses to more useful/desirable states or responses. With ANCHOR DANCE,within minutes, I have changed anxiety into cool andpeaceful confidence. Once done it need no conscious effortor will power. The new state emerges automatically. This isunconscious competence at its best. I have helpedstudents, managers, housewives and teachers to haveautomatic resourceful states. This article will help you learnthe ANCHOR DANCE technique step by step and possiblyget the most amazing results. You can use ANCHOR DANCEwith others as well as with yourself. I regularly use ANCHORDANCE to create some wonderful mindsets like confidenceabout my ability to achieve a certain goal, for clearingdoubts, and also to motivate myself. Applications of ANCHOR DANCE are only limited by your imagination. Youare invited to learn it, experiment with it and share yourexperiences with others. Using NLP, let us make this world abetter place.

ANCHOR DANCE
is a very simple, easy to learn and effective mind exercise. Learning and doing ANCHOR DANCE will help youmake changes in habitual behaviours that you may have considered to be difficult or even impossible
 
to achieve. You can useANCHOR DANCE for clients as well as for yourself. If you are already trained in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), all the better. Youwill master this great technique of ANCHOR DANCE very quickly. If you are new to NLP, reading this article a couple of times more andexperimenting will make you proficient in this art. For more help, you can talk to an NLP practitioner or e-mail me.
Eliciting A State-
Even before we talk about ANCHOR DANCE, let us first understand how to elicit a state. If I ask someone,
do you remember a time when you did something and you were very peaceful and confident about doing it?
Shemay probably look to her left and access the memory of a past event, when she was doing something and felt really peaceful andconfident about doing it.
I may say, “
Take your time to remember such an event. It may be totally unrelated to your current situationor problem
. (Speaking slowly in a hypnotic tone will help her to remember such an event). When she remembers an event her facewill light up and then I can say,
“I
magine you are doing that activity now and please tell me how you are feeling
. She will probablydescribe her feelings. Not only her words will tell she is feeling peaceful and confident but her voice, her tone, her gestures, herexpressions and body posture will congruently tell she is feeling peaceful and confident. If you are seeing and hearing some or all of these, you have elicited a peaceful and confident state in her. Bravo. Well done indeed!
Anchoring a State-
I
f I say, “As you are doing t
hat thing and feeling really peaceful and confident now, imagine you are standing in a circle, and you wantto choose a color for this circle
 
any color that comes to your mind, what color will that be?” And she may say, “Blue”. That’s great.Wonderful! “Will you please describe this blue?” And she may say, “Confident sky blue”. I can say, “That
is very nice. Can you actuallysee that confident sky blue color?
”.
 
“Yes”. Great! Great indeed!
 Now, what is happening here? Allow
me explain… When I say “imagine you are in a circle as you are feeling peaceful and confident”, I
have anchored that feeling to the circle. This is a spatial anchor. Next time she stands in the circle she can automatically feel peacefuland confident. When I am asking her to choose a color and to describe it and see it, I am anchoring the same peaceful and confidentstate to the color also. That is synesthesia... a visual image of color standing for a bodily sense of feeling peaceful and confident. Thatis even stronger and more powerful anchor. Next time she stands in that imaginary circle and sees
that color in her mind’s eye, she
instantaneously feels peaceful and confident. That is cool. A really cool peace of anchoring there!Now, you can easily do that for all the circles and the corresponding states explained below in ANCHOR DANCE exercise.
Language softeners-
Repeated use of expressions such as “That’s great”, “Wonderful”,” You are doing great indeed” etc. softens language and encou
ragesand authenticates client. If you have done this exercise many times with people, your confidence and a sense of authority will helpclient to at least do what you suggest. (What the heck! Let me try this funny thing!)
Linking-
Stepping into a circle and seeing or mentioning color elicits that state, and quickly stepping into next circle and seeing and mentioningappropriate color links the previous state to the next state. It is as simple as that!
Hay, that’s easy! I can do that,
you may say!
 
Now, on to the DANCING floor. By the way have you put on your DANCING shoes? (Just kidding ;-))
Read on…
 
 
 Preparation:
1)
 
Begin at circle 3. Elicit desired state.(E.g. I want to feel totally
peaceful &confident
). Ask the person to choose acolor. (Blue) Can you describe this blue?
(Confident sky blue)
. That’s great!
Please move to circle 4.
2)
 
On circle 4- Did you ever do somethingwell and
felt
 
really great aboutyourself 
? (Yes) And as you rememberthat time, will you like to choose a colorfor this circle? (Pink). Will you describethis pink?
(Fresh happy pink)
3)
 
Now stand on circle 1 please. Think of various situations when you
feelfearful.
(A, B, C
…) Make a note of A, B,
C etc. Please give this circle a color.(Yellow) Will you like to describe thisyellow?
(Dull yellow)
 
That’s great.
 Please move to circle 2.
4)
 
Now here in circle 2,
choose one mostimportant situation where you do notwant to feel fearful
. (A). OK. Nowimagine you are in this situation A, andas you begin to feel that fear, will like tochoose a color for this circle? (Brown)Please describe this brown.
(Dirtybrown)

Exercise- 
 
Now, as you stand in that dirty brown circle, you may want to close your eyes and think of this situation A, you may begin to feelthat fearfulness creeping up, and as soon as you start feeling that fearfulness(
It is important not to allow the client to fully accessthat fearful state
)
….
please step into this confident sky blue circle (circle 3), and here you can remember that totally peaceful &confident feeling
….
and as you begin to feel totally peaceful and confident
….
in this confident sky blue circle, please step to yourright into this fresh happy pink circle and you remember that time
….
when you did something well
….
and felt really great aboutyourself 
…. in this fresh happy pink circle
. And now, you may step out and open your eyes.
 
What we have done so far is, in situation A, we have linked undesired response of fearfulness to the desired response of feelingtotally peaceful and confident, and linked this response further to the response of feeling really great about oneself.
 
Now, as the person is outside of any circle, ask something like
….
what is name of your spouse, or what did you have for breakfast or
what is the name of your school. This sends the person’s mind to think of something totally unrelated
. This breaks their mentalstate. This is important because we do not want to link feeling good about oneself to the undesired state or response. So every timethe person steps out of circle 4, we ask this break state question. (Here we are not interested in the answer, and this can be madeclear to the person.)
 
 
Now once again please stand in this dirty brown circle and try feeling that fearfulness and now quickly step into this confident skyblue circle and feel totally peaceful and confident and quickly step into this fresh happy pink circle and feel great about yourself, andstep out and open your eyes. Break state.
