TIME Techniques tm stands for Time Integration for Maximum Empowerment™ Techniques. It is a technique based upon several techniques in NLP and other areas of life improvement.
In one sentence TIME Techniques tm is a fast and easy way to release limiting beliefs and negative emotions.
Releasing negative emotions:
Although we call them negative emotions, in reality there are no negative or positive emotions. There are only emotions that we do not want to have at a certain time. These can be emotions such as anger, sadness, fear, hurt and guilt. All these emotions are here to tell us something, to alert us to something that is going on.
If we do not pay attention to the emotion and learn what there is to learn from that situation, these emotions will keep on sitting there and the next time we feel that emotion it will be all the stronger for it.
Think about road rage for example; the very first time someone drives and they get cut off they most likely feel scared, shocked and after that maybe angry. They don’t right away feel the road rage. If, however, that person doesn’t deal with those emotions at that moment, the second time they get cut off, they’ll feel the anger sooner and stronger. And by the time they have been driving for 10 years, at the first sign that someone might be cutting them off, they explode in a huge way that is not at all warranted for the situation.
What TIME Techniques tm does is help you realize the lesson there is to learn from the very first time you felt that emotions in order to release it.
Releasing limiting beliefs:
A belief is something that at some point in your life you have decided about yourself, and felt strongly enough about that to make it part of your reality.
If, at some point in your life you looked in the mirror and saw that you had blond hair and from that moment on you decided to believe that you are a blond person, that is a belief.
If, at that same moment you also decide to believe that blond persons are always dumb and therefore you are dumb, that is a limiting decision. A decision that doesn’t help you move forward, but instead holds you back.
The difference between a limiting belief and reality is that reality can change, whereas limiting beliefs / decisions feel as if they are impossible to change.
Reality is the fact that I don’t know how to dance the Tango. A limiting decisions would be “I cannot dance the Tango”. The fact that I don’t know means that I could learn. If I believe that I CANNOT dance, there is no point in trying to learn, is there?
A huge part in releasing limiting beliefs is realizing that they are actually limiting decisions. It is something, that at some point, you decided to belief. The good news is that because you decided that at some point, right now you can decide something else.
Question: Why does TIME Techniques tm work so well?
The unconscious mind is the part of the mind that you are not consciously aware of right now. It holds all your memories, and makes sure that you are always safe. That means that most limiting decisions and old emotions get stored there as well.
Although it is not hypnosis you will be in a light trance (while being completely awake and aware) and in rapport with your unconscious mind. We will use that connection to get to those first events of negative emotions or to the time that limiting decision was made. Consciously you may not remember it, but your unconscious mind will.
Once you get what there is to get from those events the emotions will release because they have done their job. They have made you aware of the lesson there was to learn.
With limiting decisions you will reverse the decisions and decide on something else instead. Something that empowers you, moves you forward.
Question: Can I do TIME Techniques tm on my own?
Yes you can. TIME Techniques tm can be done alone or with a practitioner. However, since the process involves getting into strong rapport with your unconscious mind, entering into a light trance, as well as some specific ways of handling things when they don’t go as planned, I would always recommend doing the first time with a skilled practitioner.
Question: Do I have to re-live any trauma’s or bad feelings?
NO! Maybe I should have started with this, because this is my favorite part of TIME Techniques tm. You do not have to re-live or even feel any of the emotions that you are releasing. If you do feel any emotion be sure to tell the practitioner so it can be handled. It is not needed, not desired to feel anything. It can happen that before you start the process of releasing an emotion, that emotion might come up a bit. Mention this to your practitioner and they will talk you through it.
Question: Will TIME Techniques tm magically change my life?
Yes, and no. Although it does give you a complete new place to start from in your life, it is up to you to make something out of it. TIME Techniques tm can release anger and stop someone from entering into an automatic road rage situation. But if that person doesn’t take the lessons learned and applies them into their lives, the anger will come back.
As an example from my own life; I have been shy my entire life. After doing TIME Techniques tm I wasn’t shy anymore. A 3 hour session changed my life instantly. However, I noticed that when I went into a new situation with people I didn’t know yet, I was holding back.
For over 25 years I had created the habit of holding back and being scared around new people. But when I really was trying to feel the fear, it wasn’t there. I wasn’t shy anymore, but out of habit I still acted that way.
TIME Techniques tm will give you a fresh start. A new beginning. It is up to you to make something out of it!
Question: Will I still be able to feel those emotions?
Of course. After all, the emotions are here to teach us something. The difference between before and after TIME Techniques tm is that you will only feel those emotions that are relevant for that situation.
If you have ever been cheated on, whenever your new partner comes home late you may get upset about that. Not because he comes home late, but because it brings back all those emotions from the time your other partner came home late.
With TIME Techniques tm you will still get angry and feel hurt if your new partner would cheat on you. But you won’t feel hurt and angry simply because they come home late.
The feelings you feel will be appropriate and warranted for that situation without the past interfering.
Question: Isn’t it dangerous to not feel fear anymore?
A question back for you; if you are not afraid of crocodiles, will you stick your head in their mouth? I truly hope that most people will say NO! to that… .
The reason we can release the negative emotions is because we replace them with positive learnings. That lesson will be what keeps you from sticking your head into the mouth of a crocodile, not the fear (well… that and common sense, I hope).
Question: What can be changed with TIME Techniques tm?
A better question would be “what cannot?”. Of my own experience I have let go of phobias (spiders, claustrophobia), emotions like fear that cause my shyness, guilt that didn’t allow me to be confident etc.
Limiting beliefs such as “I am stupid”, “I can never make enough money”, “I am worthless” etc.
