Is Clean Language all ‘change your thinking, change your life’ mumbo-jumbo?

FAQs

When it is being used as a way of helping people to change, Clean Language is subscribing to the ‘change your thinking, change your life’ mindset. As the client’s metaphoric landscape changes, their conscious and unconscious ‘thinking’ changes and their behaviour and their relationships change at the same time.
However, this process tends not to require some of the mental battles that can result from other approaches. It’s not about ‘forcing’ yourself to change, but about finding ways to achieve your goals which fit perfectly for you and your own life.
It may be interesting to note that while ‘change your thinking, change your life’ has become associated with New Age mumbo-jumbo, ‘manifesting’ and similar ideas, it has a much longer history than you might imagine. After all, the idea was current in Old Testament times: “Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” (Proverbs, Chapter 23, Verse 7)
