Perception is Projection

June 16, 2021

Today, I would like to encourage you to take a little time out from your busy schedule to reflect on what you are consciously and unconsciously creating in your life through the manifestation of your projections. Here’s a thought, Perception is Projection. Yes, I know that it’s one of those concepts that makes your head hurt a little! Let’s think about it anyway, as this is an incredibly important concept that provides one of the drivers towards what you are creating in your life.

Here’s the basis of perception is projection, ‘It is impossible for you to recognise something in somebody else that hasn’t come from you.’ Think of it this way, imagine the world around you as being one of mirrors and everything that you consciously and unconsciously project outwards is mirrored back towards you. If you have enough sensory acuity and presence in your world, you will experience this reflective action in the eyes and behaviour of others and particularly in children and animals. They reflect you straight back at you without a great deal of additional filtering!

Sometimes the reflection that you observe is comfortable and pleasant and sometimes the opposite. The point is that you are projecting all the time and the process plays a key role in the creation of your specific concept of reality, your model of the world if you like. How you view the world is unique to you.

Taking a step now towards considering your projections and how to begin to manage them. Your unconscious projections are far more powerful than they seem at first glance. Your projections contain energy and that energy can take many different forms. Energy can draw people towards you or repel them away. Energy can create a positive and resourceful reality for you or a reality that you would really value changing. Couple this powerful energy with the results of your individual filtering process which creates your internal representations of your world and you get a massively powerful projection as a result.

So, what do you currently have in your life that you don’t want? Make a list right now of everything that is currently manifesting in your life and you wish it wasn’t. This may be a small list, perhaps just one item, or it may be an extensive list containing many lines. Now, consider each item on your list and think about HOW you are creating that in your life. To do this you must place yourself firmly at ‘Cause’ and immediately you do that, assume responsibility for your results and become completely empowered.

It’s time to dissolve the projections that are creating everything on your list. To dissolve our more negative projections, we must clean them up! Firstly, observe your internal representation, how you represent your world inside through the creation of pictures, sounds, feelings and self-talk. What is it about the way you are holding this particular representation that is giving you an unexpected or unwanted outcome? Consider the pictures, sounds, feelings and self-talk that come together to represent your reality and organise your linguistic labelling. Now change what you need to change to give you the most positive kinesthetic.

The next step in cleaning up your projections is to consider your beliefs attached to your concept of your listed items. What is it that you believe about yourself that causes you to believe what you believe about your reality? Chunk up your thinking to the highest possible limiting belief and then remove that belief using an approach like Time Line Therapy® Techniques (you will learn these at your Enhanced NLP Coach Practitioner Certification Training).

Finally, notice what emotions are present in your projections and use Time Line Therapy® Techniques to remove all the negative emotions. By cleaning up your internal processes and representations, you will free up your resourceful and powerful energy stores and begin to project something new. Your new projection will be positive and energised and this projection will assist you to create the reality that you want, consciously projecting at the unconscious level. Your projections are what create your world, so please spend some time cleaning them up! If you require assistance, then please contact us and book one to one coaching. Coaching can be effectively executed either face to face or over Skype/Zoom. You don’t have to live with your negative projections, dissolve them now and create your preferred reality.

You can also book a place on our Enhanced NLP Coach Practitioner Certification Training and learn how to not only manage your own projections from a position of higher consciousness, how to help others manage those projections too. As an NLP Coach you will be equipped to powerfully manage business and corporate projections, sporting projections (and particularly those that involve animals, they read ALL of your projections, ALL of the time! This is for you Equestrian Sports people!), projections in education and learning environments, projections created by coaching and therapy clients and of course, your own reality creating projections.

It’s time to take your life to the next desired level, invest in yourself and that projection will invite amazing investment in you.
