Welcome to Transform Destiny, a different kind of training institute. Please make yourself at home!

NLP Swish Pattern Script

This is the script for running the NLP Swish Pattern:

  1. Get Agreement: “Is it alright with your Unconscious Mind for you to make this change today, and for you to be aware of it consciously?”
  2. Get the unwanted state/ behavior (the Old State):  “How do you know it’s time to (ex: feel bad)? When you think of that, do you have a picture?
  3. Break State: “Clear the screen"
  4. Get the Desired State (the New State): “How would you like to feel/act instead? What kind of a person do you want to be?  When you think of that, do you have a picture?”
  5. Associate to New State: “Now step into your body, looking through your own eyes.”
  6. Adjust the visual submodalities for most positive feelings.
  7. Dissociate from New State: “Good, now step out of the picture, so you see your body in the picture.”
  8. Break State: “Clear the screen"
  9. Associate to Old State: “Bring back that old picture. Now step into the picture so that you’re fully associated, looking through your own eyes and make it fill the screen.”
  10. Explain the “swish”: “Now take that picture of the New State and put it in the lower left hand corner, small and dark. When I say ‘SWISH!’ bring up the picture and make it explode BIG and BRIGHT on the screen, while the old picture rapidly shrinks to a distant point and disappears. This can happen as quickly as 1…2…3…SWISH! Are you ready? 
  11. “Ok, 1…2…3…SWISH! Good, open your eyes, close your eyes.  Bring up the Old State.  Bring up the New State in the corner… 1… 2… 3… SWISH!”
  12. “Open your eyes, close your eyes. 1… 2… 3… SWISH!”
  13. Repeat step 12 until the client immediately accesses the desired state. Make sure the client cannot access the old state/behavior.
  14. Test: “Now how do you feel about that old state/behavior? How is it different now?”
  15. Future pace: “Go out in the future, which, if it would have happened in the past, you would have (had that old state/done that old behavior) and what happens instead?”
