The Salami Technique – Day 10 of NLP Communications Excellence by Harlan Kilstein | Jan 10, 2009 | Uncategorized | 1 comment 1 Comment Ian on April 11, 2009 at 10:52 pm Hey Harlan, Is it possible to create anchors for other people when they’re aware that you are doing it, or does it have to be something that they don’t realize is happening at the conscious level? A friend and I have jokingly created a language of our own that we bring up when we’re goofing off. Watching this made me realize that while we haven’t assigned concrete meaning to any of the words, some of them evoke abstract feelings. I just got the idea, that this language could become a set of different anchors for specific mindsets that we choose to program them for. Since we wouldn’t hear them from any other source, they would be able to hold more power in anchoring to abstract emotional states. This must be where the idea of “magic” words and mantras came about. A few years ago I met an extraordinary healer who’s grandfather was the king of Cambodia, his name was Sisowath Monirath (I’m not sure if the spelling is right). I got to meet with him a bunch of times before he left for Cambodia and he’d told me about how there was a powerful modality passed down through the royal family. He told me that certain words would come to the practitioners over time and they would eventually learn what those words were for and use them create a certain effect.
