What is Time Line Therapy™?

Time Line Therapy™ and Creating Your Future™ Techniques were developed by Dr. Tad James and Wayatt Woodsmall in their ground-breaking book titled Time Line Therapy™ and the Basis of Personality (1988).

Time Line Therapy™ (TLT) is the latest development in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Time Line Therapy™ techniques are a unique and unmatched method for creating powerful changes in "personality". Time Line Therapy™ utilizes a person’s own internal “Time Line” to work with their unconscious mind in a variety of ways; including, healing emotional traumas and eradicating unwanted thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

Time Line Therapy™ has been so successful in its results that it has been utilized since 1986 by thousands of people including psychiatrists, psychologists, marriage and family counselors, social workers, life and business coaches, and even athletic coaches.

Your “Time Line” is how you unconsciously store your memories or how you unconsciously know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. Behavioral change in an individual takes place at an unconscious level. People don’t change consciously. The Time Line Therapy techniques allow you to work at the unconscious level and release the effects of past negative experiences and change “inappropriate” programming in minutes rather than days, months or years.

Are you bothered by Negative Emotions? Want to get rid of some emotional baggage? Then continue reading this Time Line Therapy® page to see how you can quickly get rid of Negative Emotions.


Why do we use Time Line Therapy™ techniques?

Simply put, we use Time Line Therapy™ techniques because they are extremely quick and effective; results are instantly visible, and changes are long lasting. If you are like most people and have carried with you Anger, Fear, Sadness, Guilt, Anxiety, or other major or minor negative emotions, then Time Line Therapy™ can help. If you have ever held a limiting belief, such as “I can’t lose weight”, “I can’t make enough money”, “I’m not good enough”, or anything similar, then Time Line Therapy™ techniques can help. 

If you have ever suffered from chronic pain or other medical conditions, according to medical research on the mind-body connection and how the body stores stress, Time Line Therapy™ has also shown to have amazing results in coping with symptomologies. Time Line Therapy™ techniques are so powerful they are key in the rehabilitation of soldiers with PTSD and one of the most used techniques in the Warrior Programme; in fact, even His Royal Highness, the Prince of Whales recognizes the transformational capacity of these techniques.  In addition, Cancer Research at the dept of medicine, University of Calgary has lead to using Dr. James' book "Time Line Therapy And The Basis of Personality" (one of our school's textbooks) as a textbook for those studying oncology; doctors-to-be are being trained in these techniques to increase success rates in patients.  Time Line Therapy techniques are extremely powerful in helping people release what is preventing them from healing their own bodies, including symptomologies

What Time Line Therapy™ techniques are NOT:

Avoid being fooled by imitations. This is NOT recovered memory therapy, it is NOT walking the timeline, it is NOT timeline techniques, it is NOT Time Therapy, and it is NOT a lot of other things on the market that refer to the use of your timeline. Look for the ™ or ® to ensure the processes used are authentic. Your Coach, Practitioner, Master Practitioner, or Therapist must be certified under the world class standards of the Time Line Therapy™ Association to be qualified to practice these life transforming techniques.  In addition, they must be an active member in good standing to maintain the right to advertise the use these techniques.  In order to assure and maintain the integrity of Time Line Therapy™ techniques, Certifications must be renewed on a yearly basis, with required review every 5 years to maintain the ability to renew certification; so check for expiry dates.  There is a reason we hold a 100% guarantee with these techniques; Time Line Thereapy™ works! 

How Time Line Therapy™ Works:

Time Line Therapy™ is a process of active imagination.  It is designed to release undesired states (such as Anger, Sadness, Fear, Guilt, Anxiety, etc) and gain learnings to create new choices for your future.  There are also techniques designed to eliminate phobias, alleviate the symptomology of chronic pain, and so much more.  It is also used to create future goals in a way that makes it more compelling for the unconscious mind to want to achieve them; hence the term Creating Your Future® Techniques.

“Change the Future”

Time Line Therapy® Process

There is an ancient tradition in this world that says there is a relationship between the consciousness of the people on the planet and the consciousness of the planet – and modern physics agrees. We are part of this planet and the planet is part of us. The sum total of the individual consciousness makes up the planetary consciousness. That means that what’s in your time line, and what’s in the time line of the individuals in the world can determine what’s in the time line of the world – that is to say that the sum total of all our time lines makes up the time line of the world.

Think of what that means. If we change our future time line (and enough people do it), then we can change the future of the world!

But did you notice that things in the world aren’t necessarily going in a positive direction?

That is because nobody is doing anything about it. People are confused, unclear, afraid, paralyzed, frozen and just waiting for something to be done by someone else. There are things which we call “external reality” that you need to be aware of and do something about – and when what is happening is not working well, something must change. Most of us are not at the leadership level in the world, but by focusing our energy and changing our consciousness we can affect change. This is not immediately obvious. There is something all of us can do right now – and it does not take a long time or a great effort.

We need to take action, now – we must change the world time line as quickly as possible by changing our future time lines, so we all can have a say in what awaits us in the future. This is a period of transition, and how the transition goes determines how your future will be. Please send this to all your friends and ask them to do it too – put this in your future time line. Do it now. Here below it’s how to do it.

Change Your Time Line, Life and World.

The Process

Here’s how to change the world time line:

Imagine it is 10 years from today, in the year 2023.

It is now 10 years from now _____________, 2023, and we (you and us) have lived a healthy, comfortable and prosperous life. In the last 10 years we have eaten good, wholesome, healthy foods, and our health is very good. The environment is getting cleaned up in a way that is good for all living things. We have worked in environments which ensure success and good and positive results for ourselves and for the communities we live in. Our lives are transformed in the most positive and happy way.

Our freedoms have reached new levels and for the first time in history we connected with our true self-worth as human beings. Although there was a short time where it looked as though the world went through a period of massive chaotic stress, people’s consciousness woke up and became aware of what we needed to do, to change the situation. More and more people have awakened to the reality of facts and human creativity and freedom has succeeded.

Wars are over. We now respect and appreciate each other with true human love and compassion. There is room for all of us to express our creativity with dignity and in liberty. We have now the freedom to live where in the world we prefer and allow our spirit to fly high. We are now aware and conscious of all human suffering and found true solutions to solve the real and hidden (for the moment) problems – that plague humanity.

In the last 10 years there have been no wars in the country where we live, and we are on the way to true and real world peace. Prosperity abounds.

New technologies have been revealed that freed us from fossil or nuclear energy dependence, and they are now available or will be within a year or so.

Now all people – not just white, or black, not Asian or European, not young or old, all people, not women or men, not Arctic or African, but ALL PEOPLE ARE FREE. Free to pursue their life goals and dreams. Free as never before. What a great 10 years it has been!

Now you need to put it in your future

Here’s how:

Your future time line stretches out from you like a road going away from you toward the future. Imagine floating or flying above that road, and let your Unconscious Mind take you out to 10 years, it knows where 2023 is. Trust it, and put the picture you just imagined in your future. Put it there in your future. Do it every day as long as the world is not the way you want it. Do it again, now.

WARNING: Do NOT attempt to do this process with other people! This is for your own use only! Time Line Therapy® is a very powerful process with guaranteed results IF performed by a trained practitioner. If you are interested in learning how to do it with your family members or other people in a NLP or coaching setting, please contact our office for further training.
