How to use anchoring for accelerated learning.
Anchoring is a powerful NLP technique for ensuring access to our greatest personal resources. Anchoring means creating an association of ideas, feelings, thoughts or states with a specific stimulus. This technique is not new. In a famous series of experiments, Dr. Ivan Pavlov placed hungry dogs near meat so they could smell it and see it but not reach it. The meat acted as a powerful stimulus to dog’s digestive processes, causing them to salivate copiously. While dogs were in this intense state of hunger and salivation, Pavlov consistently rang a bell with a specific tone. Pavlov showed that he could then induce dog’s state of copious salivation, just by ringing bell. The sight and smell of meat was no longer needed. Pavlov had created within each dog’s central nervous system, a neurological link between sound of bell and state of hunger and salivation. All Pavlov had to do was ring same bell and dogs would salivate. In other words he had created an anchor.
Whenever a person is in an intense state where mind and body are strongly involved together and a specific stimulus is consistently and simultaneously applied at peak of state, stimulus and state become neurologically linked. Then, when ever same stimulus is applied, associated state is induced. Have you noticed how this principle is used by professional athletes? Tennis players for example often use a certain rhythm for bouncing ball to put themselves in their best state as they serve, or weight lifters use a certain pattern of breathing to induce best state just before they lift. You could if you wanted to, anchor five different resourceful states onto five digits of one hand. The states might be exuberance, confidence, motivation, decisiveness and relaxed alertness. The stimuli would be unobtrusive and you could trigger stimulus selectively, whenever you wanted and needed a boost! How would this change your life for better?
