A language Technique from the NLP Milton Model – the NLP Lost Performative

The NLP Milton Model provides a set of language patterns that can be useful in assisting other people. The main use for the MIlton Model in NLP is to assist in bringing about a light state of trance in another person. You may want to create trance in someone in order to offer them suggestions that can be useful to them in terms of their thinking.

People who want to change poor behaviour patterns that are causing them difficulty in their lives, for example overeating, can bring about this change by changing their thought patterns. This sort of change can be assisted by putting someone in a trance state, and providing them with instructions or suggestions.  The instructions that we receive when we are in a state of trance are more readily accepted because they are received by the less inquisitive and argumentative unconscious mind.

Using the language patterns of the Milton Model in a string of sentences, causes the conscious mind to become slightly confused, and therefore it goes off and tries to find the logic in what has just been said. Whilst the conscious mind is off figuring this out, the messages received in the suggestions after use of the Milton Model patterns will then go straight past the conscious mind and straight to the unconscious mind, where the change is instigated.

Anything that brings about change in another person and is outside of their awareness is obviously very powerful and so care and ecology should be exercised in the use of the NLP Milton Model language patterns.

Lost Performative

The Milton Model language patterns are used together in a string of sentences in order to bring about a light trance.  One of these NLP Milton Model patterns is called a Lost Performative.

A Lost Performative, if you think about the words involved, Lost and Performative, implies that something is lost and that thing is a performer.  Now think about the statement “It’s great to learn new and powerful language patterns.”  If we look at the beginning of the sentence “It’s great,” there is some confusion over what or who “It” actually is.  When you consider the statement you may find your self wondering, who says that learning new and powerful language patterns is great? Is it great to learn new and powerful language patterns?

The statement has a value judgement in it “It’s great,” and the performer of the value judgement is not clear, “It’s.”  Who or what is “It’s?” The performer is therefore lost. Lost Performative.

“No-one should question how powerful these NLP language patterns are.”   Who is “No-one?” Again there is a lost performer in this sentence.

“That’s right.” Who said it is right? What is right? We are automatically confused at a conscious level, and whist we are pondering over who or what is right, can I just tell you that learning this is easy because you use these statements all the time now.

“And it is a good thing to wonder how quickly you could use these NLP techniques in order to change your world.”

“One does not have to wonder for long because you can take an NLP Training online today with Excellence Assured, you know?”
