    I don’t know whether these comments are public, so I’ll say, Rob:

    Succinctly put. And most annoyingly, very clear. (That’s a good thing!)

    Thanks Steve: – I think it’s one of those

    I know this, but why don’t I know this sort of things…

    Well it was for me until I unpacked it – one of those Doh moments.

    Beautiful presentation, very simply explained and very simply moved from Unconscious Mind to the Conscious Mind.

    Thank you for your presentation. Is there som NLP involved in this?

      … I was wondering because I took NLP’s New Code with John Grinder.

      Juracy –

      Good question.

      There is some NLP though this is not the RebelCode Methodology – it can be applied to NLP, NewCode or other forms of Personal Development.

      Though it’s roots are from NLP and Erickson’s work.

    Hi Rob

    first of all I like what you’re doing, I’ll be interested to see where this goes.

    I haven’t time to watch a 17 min clip just now, but I’ll do so later. I’ve looked at your worksheet exercise and have the following observation. The new code change process is most elegant because it is designed to set up a content free state which will be activated the next time the identified context in which change is desired is encountered. The content free state has the benefit of having no specific resources assigned to it – but access to all. As in “prepared for nothing ready for anything.” which anyone who has trained with John Grinder may recognise as one of his mottos.

    In your first video you identify one of the issues of change is knowing where to tap (which includes which resources to add?). Even the unconscious cannot know which specific resources will be most appropriate for some *future* event.

    I agree with you that when it comes to change the balance between conscious and unconscious resources is key. But for any state based work I’ve found the new code process to be exceptional – specifically, not identifying (consciously or otherwise) particular resources. I know that mileage varies on this, the biggest factor of which is likely to be skill (some nlp’ers just haven’t invested in getting the basics of calibration in place) and I also accept, since my own experience is obviously finite, that the new code process does not have infinite scope.

    I guess my question is, how does your variation on the process improve it? Is it, for example, about making self application easier etc..

    cheers, Toby

      Hi Toby,

      Thanks for posting. I think there are two dynamics at play, one is the Future, the other , Present/Past. I agree that we cannot predict which resources/states are going to the ‘right’ ones for a future scenario, that’s the golden lottery ticket. In which case, this is about, state/context.

      On the flip side, when it comes to what is ‘preventing’ stopping someone from achieving an outcome/goal/wish then we flip to the other side of coaching which is about internal change. So re-resourcing is possibly an appropriate metaphor here.

      Of course, neither one is independent of the other, past, present, future.

      The RebelCode Methodology a) makes self application easier as it connects (‘all’) the NLP applications together through a uniform process (which in part you can see on the video) b) requests congruence prior during and after application c) improves on it ‘difficult to say’ I would put it as works together (depending) upon content and context to increase the internal self-calibration.

      I recommend if you haven’t already view the second video Incantations II.

      Though the RebelCode in part uses NLP as the models for change, this is not the whole, as it is a methodolgy that can be used completly outside of any NLP applications to other forms of personal development or change methods.

      Thanks – good questions.

    RE: Rebel Code to Excellence.

    I see what you’ve done there. Very Cool, Rob. Asking the wisdom and CHOICE available of the non-conscious mind in that way seems to be far more resourceful and fitting. Adding to your reply above it may even be three dynamics at play: The non-conscious/past part, the present conscious part, and a future/potential part. The neat bit appears to be (for me) getting working and validated communication going between parts of the SELF. Even thought the signals may be very subtle.

    I believe that the non-conscious can have the wisdom to apply the resource best fitting in context from that Gestalt (you mentioned) of all possible resources available.

    Thankfully that can be tested….

      Steve, nice observations.

      With subtle signals if you have the yes/no set up, request the u/c to intensify the signals. This is all about relationship. between you and your u/c ( I know I’ve made a split between the two at the verbal level, this is only so it makes sense in how to do it)

      I agree, the u/c can have the wisdom to find the right resources.

      Another thing worth mentioning is that some people think of resources as skills – For me the definition of resources includes, states, skills, behaviours beliefs etc.

      Let me know how you get on with the testing ๐Ÿ™‚

        I’m with you about the resources. More later on the results of the exercise.

          I’ve listened through the MP3 file once.

          I listened to the recording in a semi-detached way; grasping snatches of dialogue from each channel at random. I wasn’t consciously aware of each whole message, and after the initial induction, several minutes in, I experienced a signal from my non-conscious part as a stabbing pain halfway along the right hand shoulder at the base of my neck which disappeared as the recording came to the end.

          I’ll listen to the recording again and report back.

    I’m a bit confused about the rebel coded circle of excellence and this is a confusion revolving around the unconscious in general; what if it simply doesn’t have the skills required to function effectively in the challenging context?

    • Rob Ballentine

      Reply Reply October 21, 2011

      Alistair – this is a confusion that people do make.

      The circle of excellence whether the RebelCoded one or not is designed for state management, or having a particular state of excellence in a certain context.

      Of course, if you’ve never climbed a sheer cliff face and don’t have the requisite skills or behaviours to navigate certain sections of the face, it doesn’t matter how great your state is, it just ain’t gonna happen.

      Therefore it’s about choosing the appropriate state for the appropriate context not skill.

      Man goes into see a coach “I want to know and believe I’m a brilliant pianist”

      “How long have you been playing?”

      “I haven’t started yet”.

      In answer to your question you would be requesting your u/c to find the best state in relation to the learning of the skills.

    An update.

    The morning after the first listening I found myself working as if the ‘partially applied brakes’ were released. This compares with the running about exercise we all started with. Something has shifted for me internally and it is related to that barrier that Rob talked about in the Royal Road video. I suspect that there are strategies that work (or limit) at the unconscious level and that changes at that level have already been made ahead of any conscious exercises(!)

    I hope Rob doesn’t mind if I add a little detail. It might be useful to ‘settle’ one’s body and mind before asking the for the yes/no signals. One’s mind can be full of internal dialogue, the body twitching from everyday aches and pains to begin with.

    The signals can be very subtle and as an example, my yes signal was a twitch of the left eyelid-eyebrow area and the no signal a stomach spasm. I had to scan the internal feelings with care diligence before I could detect them.

    The stabbing neck-shoulder pain previously mentioned I’m sure was kinaesthetic resistance to changebecause it knew change would occur and change can be uncomfortable or unsettling as well as positive.

    In any case I shall re-listen to the MP3 file yet again and go through the exercise conciously anyway.

    Thank you so much, Rob.
    I listened to the audio today out on a hike. This is truly brilliant work, it seems to be a true evolution from the other-aided-help model.

    As an NLP trainer I can say that what you are doing in this audio is a step beyond NLP since it utilizes the unconscious mind to find what needs to be “tuned” next, and guides one to a solution. The suggestion to put that process on autopilot is the crowning glory.

    Bravo, Rob! I happily look forward to seeing what else you share with us.

      It was a pleasure and thanks for your support and comment.

      When we start to learn how to use our unconscious mind, we can become more mindfull of what we can do rather than what we cannot.

      Too many people get caught up in trying to evaluate and validate what they know and seek not instead to find what they do not know.
