Does the emotion used in establishing the Emotional Anchor need to be the same type of emotion when emotionalising a goal
The emotion that you bring back with your Emotional Anchor is actually the physical feeling of feeling good. It need not have any relationship to the goal at all. You're converting emotion to a feeling in the body; how it was originally created doesn't matter (as long as the experience was positive). What was it that I said about the subconscious mind? It does not know the difference between reality and imagination. So you're fooling the subconscious mind with the use of the emotion, by only tapping into the physical feeling, not the circumstances, when you use your Emotional Anchor. Here's an example - your goal might be to buy a house; as you're doing your goal in your PP up comes the good emotion for example, of excelling in several sporting achievements (which you've already put into your emotional anchor) - so is that OK? Yes, of course, because it's all positive emotion, and emotion is the language of the subconscious mind.
