(admin note: Eric says that "flip" and "swish" are NLP techniques) See you have to feel the emotion, thought or memory that's bothering you. Try to make it bigger if you can. You don't have to know the name, just notice how you know. Now that you've aimed at the feeling or noticed its there. Try to make it bigger or more bothersome by the will of your mind. Now switch your thinking totally. Think about the best memory you've ever had in your life. In your memory, your visualization or imagination add colors to this good memory like a colorful carnival. Make the colors more vibrant, stay here in this good memory scene for about 1 minute. Feel the emotions of joy and peace that comes from the good memories, Then when you open your eyes try to think of the negative memory- its probably not there, or it just needs a few more flips and swishs if its a feeling just notice that you know its there and do the swish as explained above. For instance if some one angers you- I just close my eyes and see his or her name in red - why red? I made it red myself, its submodalities or the five senses. then I make his or her name turn to grey then yellow and white. While im thinking about the color changes I see them like carnival colors. Hold these images here for about 5 seconds. Next I open my eyes and look at something White. I usually will have no more anxiety over the issue at this time if needed ill re-peat the sequence two to seven times Try it you'll see -then try and think back to the memory that made you mad or depressed or judged or angered- it works with almost any emotion what ever name you wish to add to the feeling. Almost always there will be no negative charge to any negative thoughts do this sort of quick- that's the speed element- count to three on each color. So remember here at the onset start to feel the emotion then instantly think about the best memory you've ever had. This memory is your visualization, imagination, real memory, feeling, etc.. Remember you wont lose the memory only the negative sting. The outcome is peace- to flip or discharge. Not that your not peaceful now but you ever feel like something's holding you back its like 1 negative at a time too- instead of trying to hunt them I let them come to me. but I like hunting them now- im used to the submodalities or different senses and thoughts.
