Reframing

Reframing is an art form in linguistics. The first secret to proper reframing is that you can not lie. It is not that you ignore the bad that happens or the feelings that you feel. It is a way to accept things that happen without having them harm you with a lot of negative energy. Reframing also allows state changes to take effect in the client. A state change is simply a change in the emotional state of the individual. So the secret to good reframing is to be able to reframe a negative emotion into a true positive fact or emotion. Now that you know ______ you are able to ________ which will lead you to ______. The easiest way I teach someone to reframe is to ask them to repeat it in a positive way any time I hear a negative. With practice you will notice that you are not having to reframe your thoughts as much and that you are looking for the positive in your life always. There are of course other ways of reframing but this is the one that I have found my students appreciate the most.

Mystically yours,
