AN EASY INTRO TO THE OBSCURE ART OF ANCHORING Here’s a quick follow up to our last meet-up on the basic "how-to" of anchoring techniques. “Anchoring” is one of the most commonly found topics in NLP literature. It’s been studied and codified to the point that it seems like a very complicated and esoteric thing, and you can certainly make a study of it. But at it’s heart, it’s pretty easy. An anchor is a thing (a word, a touch a gesture or a sound) that triggers an emotion, a memory of a feeling. Did you ever hear a song on the radio that reminded you of a time, a place or a feeling form your past? Is there a food that reminds you of something from your past? Have you ever seen or heard anything that made you think or feel anything else? That’s what anchoring is all about. It’s simply creating an association in the subconscious mind.
