Swish Pattern - Overview
Swish patterns are useful for creating momentum toward a compelling future. A Swish Pattern installs choices for a new identity, rather than to change or remove old behaviors.
Doing a NLP Swish Pattern – Overview (The exact script is on next page)
- Get the unwanted state/behavior – the Old State. Get the picture that represents the habit or situation the client would like to change.
- Get the Desired State – the New State – by getting a picture of the type of person the client would like to be, instead.
- Adjust the submodalities of the New State (brightness, size, distance, etc.) for the most “real’ or most positive Kinesthetic.
- Bring back the Old State, and have the client step into the picture, fully associated.
- Now shrink the New State so it’s small and dark, and insert in the lower left hand corner, and the client is dissociated.
- Simultaneously, have picture of Old State rapidly shrink and recede to a distant point while New State explodes big and bright into full view. (This can be accompanied by either an internal or external SWIIISSH sound, but is not necessary—speed is!
- Repeat step six a minimum of five times. Enjoy the results
Notes To Keep in Mind
- The client should be fully associated in Old State (Present State).
- The client should have detailed sensory-specific representations in the New State (Outcome).
- The client should be dissociated in the New State (Outcome).
- Make sure to have a Break State between each Swish Pattern to prevent the states from looping. Close eyes during the process and open and close them between swishes.
