Anchoring is a very useful tool in the tool-bag of an NLP practitioner. Here is presented "ANCHOR DANCING", a method of anchoring and linking that is both very effective and easy to master. Using ANCHOR DANCE, an NLP practitioner (or even a layman with some additional training) can easily change problem/undesirable states or responses to more useful /desirable states or responses. With ANCHOR DANCE, within minutes, I have changed anxiety into cool and peaceful confidence. Once done it need no conscious effort or will power. The new state emerges automatically. This is unconscious competence at its best. This has helped students, managers, housewives and teachers to have automatic resourceful states.
