Meta Model

J Mw-fit> tram fraction ta II Miai-UnoT The Magic of Reframing Technology That Drives Mind-Lining The mental, cognitive, and conceptual shifting of meaning that we've described can take seven basic directions. Each direction (backward, forward, down, up, counter, etc.) provides us a different way to directionalize consciousness. By sending (or swishing) someone's mind-and-emotion in one of these different directions, we open up space for them (or ourselves) to experience new...

The Formula

The Magical Meaning Formula in the Box That Summarizes & Controls Neuro-Semantic Reality Every belief is a limit to be examined & transcended. (JohnC. Lily) Words and magic were in the beginning one and the same thing, and even today words retain much of their magical power. By words one of us can give anotherthe greatest happiness or bring about utter despair by words the teacher imparts his knowledge to his students by words the orator sweeps his audience with him and determines its...

16 A11 Other Abstractions

As previously noted, when we chunk up, we move up to higher level principles, understandings, and meanings that the belief system containing the magic meaning formula (EB IS) may suggest, imply, or create. Accordingly, all of the meta-moves (Mind-Lines 13- 17), with regard to the belief system itself, have moved us up one logical level. We have moved up and set a new frame-of-reference. This has affected, qualified, tempered, and modulated the belief system. In doing so, we thereby test the...

2 Reality Strategy Chunk Down

As we chunk down from the belief systems and paradigms that people offer as the magic that runs their meaning box, we will not only discover the parts and pieces of their subjective experience, we will find their strategy for it. Strategy refers to how we sequence our internal representations (VAK and A in such a way that when you add all of the ingredients together it creates a formula for cooking up a particular soup of human subjectivity the process for generating that experience. Consider...

Epilogue

AND NOW YOU MAY LET THE MAGIC BEGIN You know about reframing, you know about the nature and functioning of meaning, you know about how we meaning-makers structure our net ro-semani 'c,meanings, , . , . you nave explored seven directions in which to shift and re-direct consciousness, and you have learned about twenty ways to conversationally reframe meaning. Now as an apprentice magician you only need to get out there and get some real-life hands-on practice with the mind-lines. we would love to...

1 Chunking Down on the Chunk Size

In this move, which we call Chunking Down, we reframe by becoming more specific about the details that make up either the EB or the IS of the formula. In doing this we here test the reality of the belief and simultaneously employ the basic meta-modeling process itself (i.e. we keep asking, specifically how). Meta-model the language of the belief itself. Make it your aim to index its referents (i.e. find the referential index) to person, place, time, event, etc. As we chunk down to the component...

Thinking Like A Magician

When we use Mind-Lines to work semantic magic, we only need to keep a couple of things in mind. First, and foremost, we need to keep our outcomes positive and respectful. A person could use these reframing patterns destructively. These patterns have much potential to make a smart ass out of us if we don't keep focused and oriented in a positive and caring way about the person. Used wrongly, Sleight of Mouth patterns can alienate people. Conversely, when we establish a strong, positive, and...

Learning Mindlines Stepbystep

You know a great many of the secrets of the magic. You have committed yourself to playfully practice your magic. Just a quick summary. And a quick demystifying of the magic. Here we pull apart the magic of conversational reframing and formulate it into a step-by-step process. Doing this will specify a strategy for learning the Mind-Lines Model. In simplifying it in this way, you will first walk through the pieces consciously and intentionally. You will...

Storying Restorying Framing

In this final conversational reframing shift, we move to tell a story that uses a different content and or context. And yet we use one which stands structurally isomorphic in the sense that it has the same form (hence iso-morphic) as a vehicle for embedding another meaning. Accordingly, we can use this format of a story or metaphor in order to communicate any of the previous reframing or mind-line patterns. In so creating and designing a story, we again directionalize the brain of the listener...

Identifying Framesof Reference

Given that we process information through various frames, the problem in finding these frames rests in that most of them lie outside conscious awareness. Once we put our thoughts in reality boxes, and say 'Yes to them, we live out of these frames, and get used to them as our models of reality. They then filter our very perspective. They function as our sense of reality. Comprising our beliefs, learnings, and decisions, these frames also establish our identity. To identify a frame-of-reference...

10 First Outcome Framing

In the previous move, outside of the magic belief box we shifted back in time to the intention that gave birth to the formula of belief. Then with Positive Prior Cause we moved back in time to attribute a causation to pre-frame a person into a place that allows them to become more resourceful. Now let's move in the other direction, again, outside of the box. This time let's move into the future, to a time when the formula itself gives birth to outcomes and consequences. Directionalizing our...

5 Reflexively Apply EB to Self or Listener 6 Reflexively Apply IS to Self or Listener

In the Meta-Model, we call the person or thing doing or receiving the action of the verb the referential index. (Don't you love the terminology that Linguistics has bequeathed us ) So when we switch the referential index, we apply the statement (the action of the verb) from one object to another one. Consider the statement, The dog bit Tim. Here Tim received the action of the verb (bit). That makes Tim the referential index. In saying, the dog bit we refer to Tim. We switch the referential...

3 Reframe the EB by Redefining It Content Refrarning

Here we create new meanings and frames about the behavior by redefining the EB of the equation. We simply give it a new and different meaning. We redefine the external behavior by linking it up with a new frame of reference. (A) Saying mean things makes you a bad person. Actually I'm not uttering mean things, rather I'm attempting to express some of the truths and understandings that I have. This isn't mean talk, but expressive and assertive talk. (B) Cancer causes death. Actually, cancer does...

73 Model of the World Framing

In this conversational reframing pattern we move to a high level, a meta-levelto the magical box wherein lies the belief construction. We designate this one as Model of the World. In chunking up to this level, we thereby identify the overall mental map that a person, uses in negotiating the world's territory. As we recognize and consider it as but a map, we then bring that awareness to bear on the belief. Hey, it's just one way of mentally mapping the territory As with all of these meta-moves...

9 Positive Prior Cause Framing

Just as we can move backwards in time conceptually and linguistically to identify positive intentions that drive a behavior and a person's meaning formula that creates his or her semantic reality, we can also go back in time to identify a positive Prior Cause. Now why in all the world would we want to do that For the same reason that we would want to attribute positive intentions to any and all behaviors. Namely, we want to frame behaviors, experience, emotions, etc. so that it allows a person...

Three Facets Of Iseurolimuistic Magic

Neurosemantic Scale

To really getgoodwith Mind-Linesyou need to understand the magicthat lies within them. And to understand the magic of mind-lines, you need to have a pretty clear grasp about neuro-linguistic magic. So to make sure you have gotten up to speed on this we here offer you three facets of neuro-linguisticmagic.
