Getting Rid of a Negative Anchor/Conditioned Response

  1. Decide on the negative “triggered” state to be replaced.
  2. Anchor several positive states with the same unique stimulus.
  3. Anchor the negative state once with a second unique stimulus.
  4. Fire both anchors at the same time until integration is complete.
  5. Stop firing the negative anchor.
  6. Continue to fire the positive anchor for five seconds and then release.
  7. Test how you feel about the old state.
  8. Imagine a future time when you might be in a similar situation and check in with your feelings and see what happens.
