Chapter 4 : Anchoring

My definition of an anchor is anything that brings up a feeling or thought of any other thing. It reminds you of something that you have experienced. It might actually bring back that feeling or emotion completely.

I have this habit. Whenever someone around me is having fun.. I anchor it. If they are laughing, I anchor it. I think people should feel good around me and I am not going to leave that to chance. If they are in a shitty mood I will fire the anchor. I walk up to people and when they smile and shake my hand I also touch them on the shoulder. Well how could you use this? You could just keep it in the context of a seminar and never use it in real life or spend lots of time just touching yourself

Setting anchors is an art form all by itself The question is, how are you building the state??? To successfully anchor you have to first be able to notice if you are getting the state. These skills depend on each other and do not exist in isolation.

Calibrate to the person you are working with. This means getting out of your own head and noticing. If the state peaks strong enough you will have to only set it once. Set the anchor just BEFORE the state peaks and hold it until it does.

Then test your anchor.

I can not tell you how important it is to get the state FIRST. If you use a pattern, notice when you get the response and anchor it. The Patterns are to get women into a state. If you notice and anchor it you will never have to use that pattern to get the state back again.
lf the anchor does not hold, it is usually because you did not get the state or anchored to early.
How many different types of anchors are there?

So why learn to anchor. Well imagine walking into your job and suddenly and unexplainably your boss looks at you and feels good. It might be that you anchored that feeling to yourself We all know that people do notget promoted due to their ability. They get promoted more often than not, because they make people feel a certain way.

First I would like to explain again when to anchor. When you are getting someone into the state you want anchor you'll notice when that state starts to amplify. The key is to begin to anchor before the state peaks and hold it through the peak. Then just after you see it pass the peak, let go.
