English [Auto] Changes happen in a person's physiology which may or may not have some meaning to you as a practitioner. Now when you're working in an opaque sensory acuity is one of the skills that you will be using all the time whether you are a coach or if you're planning on using and or PE in a therapeutic environment for example being able to notice the changes that your client makes to be able to notice when those changes have been integrated in the client's unconscious. Well that might be quite a useful skill to learn. You think being able to notice the slight changes in physiology and so know that those changes actually mean something may a change in the clients and so on. Representation is a really useful skill to develop and as you learn and will pay there'll be a number of techniques that you learn that rely heavily on your skill with sensory acuity. Anchoring is a good example of that. You'll need to use your sensory cues to be able to know when your client goes into states and when that state begins to decline. Now I think it's important to make the point really clearly that the changes that we see in physiology don't tell us what a person is thinking or how their internal representations may have changed. The only thing that we can deduce is that they have and it's only through observing the client with some control questions that we can begin to associate the idiosyncratic changes to a recurring state within a client's someone's skin blushes. Does it mean they're angry happy sad or embarrassed. The truth is we simply don't know when it could be any of those. And guess would be a mind read.
