Have you or your child been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD?

I had trouble in school. It wasn’t that I wasn’t bright because I seemed to tutor people that got A’s. But, I couldn’t seem to get the grades no matter how hard I tried or what type of studying I did. I was diagnosed after university with ADD.

And, I was satisfied with that diagnosis until I learned NLP from Carl Buchheit in California. I was the class example of a “bad speller”… but Carl said I wasn’t a bad speller I just had a “bad auditory memory.”

When we unpacked the memory (This is something I frequently do with my clients: I unpack an old memory that is unconsciously triggers a response that keeps a person  from getting what they want in life.) we found that when ever I was stressed, in an exam or test situation, I heard my mother voice say I was stupid and then I would feel bad and not be able to go back to spelling the word or answering the question on a test.

Many times bad feelings take us off course… they get in the way of what we want and what we can and want to accomplish in our lives. NLP uses many different techniques to change the perspectives that created current results (those bad feelings) so that those memories and thoughts work better for us and allow us to achieve what we want in life.

Have you ever had a brain injury? If so, do you have issues with your memory or learning etc?

I’ve had a number of clients that have come to me with a brain injury. They were deemed fit by their doctors, but when I asked them to do certain things for me in a session they weren’t able to do it because of the headache they had from what I asked them to do.

One person claimed he was terrible speller and seemed like he was a visual learner when speaking to him but and auditory learner when he was in front of me.

Another person had issues with scheduling anything beyond 24 hours and wasn’t learning from his previous mistakes. He also, said that although he himself was a NLP practitioner, none of the NLP he did ever worked on him. Again when I asked him to do certain things for me in a session he weren’t able to do it because of the headache he had from what I asked him to do.

So here’s the exercise: while keeping your head perfectly straight move your eyes in a circular pattern from looking at the ceiling to looking to your right, then down at the floor, then to your left and then to the ceiling again. Repeat this exercise in the other direction. If there is a space where your eyes go that has you get a headache, keep pushing your eyes in that direction until you don’t get a headache any more.

If you don’t work this area, you can loose access to very important and useful areas of your brain and not realize it.  If you don’t have any pain, you’re fine and the exercise was worth the exploration.
