Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a tool we can use to renew our minds and transform our lives (Romans 12:2). It is a model which incorporates the three most significant components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming. NLP teaches us how to use the language of the mind to consistently achieve our specific and desired outcomes. God created our mind, body, emotions and nervous system (Psalm 139:13-15). NLP allows us to learn to take more control of these processes.
Our nervous or neurological system coordinates our body’s actions by transmitting signals to and from different parts of the body. Linguistics is the scientific study of language, and involves an analysis of language form, meaning and context. Language determines how we interact and communicate with others. Our programming is how we internally represent our experiences – our habitual thoughts, feelings, reactions, beliefs and traditions. These internal representations run our bodies and behavior. Programming refers to our ability to utilize these internal representations (in our neurological system) to change our mind and body states… to achieve our desired outcomes. To the extent that these processes and mechanisms lie outside of our awareness, they control us. Increasing awareness, competency, flexibility, and knowledge of mental and cognitive processes improves our ability to excel.
Bodenhamer & Hall (1996) note that NLP also emphasizes modeling or replicating excellence. As Christianity is about modeling Jesus, the integration of NLP and faith will deepen our relationship with God and improve discipleship efforts. NLP provides tools which allow us to strive for excellence, internalize empowering beliefs, control how we think, feel, and behave, and remove any past emotions or limitations which hinder personal transformation. NLP will allow you to take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).
Time Line Therapy®:
When we experience something negative, traumatic or emotionally painful, the emotions and thoughts can remain in our nervous system and affect our current state and experiences. The anger, sadness, fear, hurt, guilt, grief, frustration, shame, anxiety, and stress can build up in our neurology. The Time Line Therapy® process provides freedom from past negative thoughts and emotions. The process allows one to release negative emotions and let go of limiting decisions or beliefs from the past. Time Line Therapy® allows us to let go of thoughts such as, “I’m not good enough”, “There is something wrong with me”, “I am a failure”, etc. In addition, Time Line Therapy® also allows us to design our future as we wish. We can envision the “life to the full” (John 10:10) that God has planned!
Cresenda has been trained by The Tad James Co., the creator of Time Line Therapy®. These techniques allow us to work to release the effects of past negative experiences and change unhealthy neuro-programming in just minutes. The possibilities after releasing the negative emotions are endless. We can take hold of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22)! We can live as the conquerors God has already decreed (Romans 8:37)!!!
Cresenda is an amazing practitioner! My breakthrough session with her was an absolute game changer!! I feel cleansed, clear and ready to go conquer my life while achieving at much higher levels.
