This is the general formula you want to use when using language patterns to help change beliefs.

Language Pattern Flow Chart – This is the general formula you want to use when using language patterns to help change beliefs.

  1. Gather Information: Eliciting the Belief to be Changed.
    1. Briefly specify the outcome: “What do you want?”
    2. Get limitation in terms of A=B or A causes B. This means that we want either A (cause) leads to B (effect) or A (specific evidence) means B (conclusion).
      1. Ask “What stops you?”
      2. If you have something specific (A), ask:
        “How is that a problem?”
        “What does that mean to you?”
        “What does that cause or make happen?”
      3. If you have a response (B), ask:
        “What causes you to feel that way?”
        “How do you know it’s time to have that response?”
        “What happens just before you have that response?”
      4. If you have a conclusion (B) ask:
        “How do you know that?”
        “What happens that gets you to conclude x?”
        “What’s your evidence that x is true?”
    3. Check: Do you have a limiting A=B or A causes B? Is it a belief you want to change?
    4. Specify context: “Is [A = or causes B] always true?”
    5. Find out about other related limitations. “After we have taken care of [A = or causes B], will you have what you want?”
  2. Loosen old belief. Use all sleight of mouth and presuppositions.
  3. Replace with new belief. Use all sleight of mouth and presuppositions.
  4. Test. “So now, in that moment when [context of former limitation], is there anything that can possibly stop you from just automatically [having outcome]?”
  5. (Optional) Future-pace with contextualization.
    “Now that you have made this change, when do you still want to [have old behavior/response] even though you also [have the new choice]?”
  6. Install on timeline where/when useful. Use presuppositions and verb forms.
