In 1999, Al Sargent wrote The Other Mind’s Eye: The Gateway to the Hidden Treasures of Your Mind in response to the tremendous breakthroughs he was making with clients using his discovery of Internal Dominant Eye Accessing.
Al’s study and deep understanding of the information-gathering modalities of the human brain and the way the human brain encodes information allowed him to understand how eye dominance effected memory, learning and personal development. The results of his work are all contained in this book.
After years of refinement, through studies with clients and discussing his discovery with people around the globe, Al incorporated his discovery with therapeutic processes to create Cognitive Emotional Re-Alignment with Hemispheric Integration™, or more simply known as Hemispheric Integration™.
In 2010, Al updated The Other Mind’s Eye to reflect his deeper understanding of the discovery and provide more details about the different therapeutic processes developed from it.
Here is the introduction from The Other Mind’s Eye: The Gateway to the Hidden Treasures of Your Mind:
The structure and applications of Internal Dominant Eye Accessing form the basis of the tools that allow us to begin to answer the question “Why” as it applies to understanding how we code and respond to emotional information. This new technology gives us the structure to develop habits and personal strategies that lead to having more of the good things we want in our lives.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the study of human excellence. It asks the question, “What works, and how can it work even better?” By analyzing (modeling) the specific behaviors and internal thinking processes (strategies) of individuals who consistently demonstrate excellence in their field, those strategies can be identified down to very fine details. Once this has been accomplished, those strategies can be used by others to accomplish the same level of excellence. The same concept holds true for professional goals, interpersonal relationships, and a person’s self-esteem.
Behaviors are relatively easy to identify. The exciting and challenging task is to precisely elicit internal thinking processes, beliefs, and motivations. This task becomes even more challenging because very often, those who are top performers are not consciously aware of their internal thinking patterns that lead to their success.
In the early 1970’s, Richard Bandler, John Grinder, Robert Dilts, Judith Delozier, Leslie Cameron-Bandler and others discovered ways to access and identify specific and reliable templates that elicit internal mental processes, language patterns, and behavioral characteristics of successful people. This was the beginning of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro represents the internal workings of the brain, Linguistic refers to how language influences our experience both internally and in communication with others, and Programming is how to install effective strategies into our own life.
The modeling templates identified in NLP offer a structure to analyze all aspects of any system, including the system that is within all individuals at a personal level, all the way up to and including global politics and health.
As with any field of technology, NLP has specific terminology to represent concepts and principles of interest to the field. Throughout this book, much of the “jargon” used in the field of NLP has either been translated into user-friendly language, or explained as it is presented. It is my belief that anyone with an interest in “What is possible?” will benefit by reading this book and using the valuable information within it.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce my wife Marilyn Sargent. The format of this book is as an interactive exchange with participants in a seminar on Internal Dominant Eye Accessing that Marilyn and I present together.
Marilyn has an extensive background in NLP and has a private consulting practice in Southern California. She has been a part of the discoveries discussed in this book from the very beginning and, more often than not, she has been the test subject throughout the developmental stages.
