Mapping Across Following Contrastive Analysis, Mapping Across is the Submodality process of actually changing the set of Submodalities of a certain Internal Representation to change its meaning.
Mastery The act of taking the human mind and body to their greatest possibilities, their finest moments.
Matching Doing the same, copying or adopting the behaviour of the client or replicating exactly some aspect of a person’s physiology.
Meaning Reframe Giving another meaning to a statement by recovering more content, which changes the focus. (Sometimes called a Content Reframe.)
Meta Something is meta to another if it is at a higher level.
Meta Model A model of language, derived from Virginia Satir that gives us an “over” view of language. It allows us to recognise deletions, generalisations and distortions in our language, and gives us questions to clarify imprecise language and gain specificity.
Metaphor A story which is symbolic and which allows us to bypass the conscious resistance of the client and to have the client make connections at a deeper level.
Meta Position A location outside a situation enabling you to view the situation in a more objective way. A dissociated position not involved with the content of the event or the person. Very similar to Third Position.
Meta Programs These are unconscious, content-free programs we run which filter our experiences. They are the “how” we run our Values, and determine how Strategies run at different states of the TOTE.
Milton Model The Milton Model is designed to produce trance or agreement. It is a series of abstract language patterns, which are ambiguous so as to match the client’s experience and assist in accessing unconscious resources. The Milton Model has the opposite intent of the Meta Model.
Mirroring Reflecting the behaviour or physiology of the client as if looking into a mirror.
Mismatching Using different patterns or contradictory responses regarding behaviour or words to interrupt communication.
Modalities Refers to our internal representations, which relate to the five senses (Visual, Auditory, Kinaesthetic, Olfactory, Gustatory) plus our internal dialogue.
Modal Operator of Necessity Modal Operator of Necessity relates to words, which form the rules in our lives (should, must, have to, etc.).
Modal Operator of Possibility relates to words that denote that which is considered possible (can, cannot, etc.).
Model In NLP, a Model is a description of a concept or behaviour, which can be adopted easily.
Modelling Modelling is the process of replicating human excellence and was the way all of NLP was created. In Modelling we elicit the Strategies, Filter Patterns (Beliefs and Values) and the Physiology that allows someone to produce a certain behaviour. Then we codify these in a series of steps designed to make the behaviour easy to reproduce.
Model of the World A person’s values, beliefs and attitudes as well as their internal representations, states and physiology, that all relate to and create their belief system of how the world operates.
