Many of the language patterns that we use in NLP or that are
used unconsciously by an excellent communicator are a result of
knowing (either consciously or unconsciously) how people orga-
nize time inside their heads. I’ve also noticed that people who
know how other people store time are much more facile in using
temporal language shifts to produce changes and shifts in clients
in therapy and business situations. You may have noticed that as
people talk, they will often give you a description of what they
are doing mentally. Could it be that this description is not
metaphorical, but is literal? Have you ever heard someone say,
“You’re going to look back on this and laugh.” Or how about, “Put
it behind you,” or “Time is on my side.”
Well, we wondered, “What does this mean?” We now believe
that the way people talk about their internal experience (includ-
ing their gestures) of time is a literal (as opposed to a metaphori-
cal) description of the composition of their experience. How
people talk about time is an actual representation of what they do
mentally. Use of temporal language is just a description of how
they store time.
We will begin by describing the Time Line and how it works.
First, a bit of theory. Then, how it works mentally and some
exercises, and then an actual transcript of some demonstration
change work. You will have the opportunity to see how it works
in yourself and other people.
