How internal images shape our bodies, weight loss from the inside out

Today I would like to introduce a topic that I will write about more fully next week. I have two reasons for this, firstly today I am running the assessments on our NLP Master Practitioner training course and need to keep my focus there.

The second reason?

I want you to consider how you see yourself in your mind’s eye. Here are some instructions I would like you to follow and then next week we will explore what may have been there when you looked.

Close your eyes and make a picture of yourself.

What do you look like? How would you describe your body shape? What about your proportions and your size?

How are you dressed (assuming that you are!)?

What expression do you have on your face? How do you feel in this picture?

Now look at the qualities of the picture. Is it bright or dim, black and white or colour, a movie or a still. Look at a whole range of other qualities and make a note.

When you have finished take a moment to write down your thoughts, feelings and insights.

What have you become aware of that you were not aware of before?

If you need to lift your mood listen to the SWISH exercise on our free download and go through the exercise yourself.

Next week I will take you through some ideas that I have about our internal images. I would like to hear about your experiences so do post a comment or if you want to be confidential email me at

Tonight Joe and I are making a guest appearance at Katie Raver’s NLP group in Austen, Texas by the wonders of the internet. I look forward to meeting you if you are part of that group.
