The term "subliminal" refers to anything that exists just below your consciousness awareness i.e. at the subconscious level.
If you are unsure of the effectiveness of subliminal messages I would ask you this. Have you ever heard a piece of music in the morning without paying much attention to it yet had it in your head all day, perhaps even humming or singing it throughout your day? I bet you have! Have you ever been in a crowd, totally unaware of all the conversations that were taking place until someone mentions your name?
Are you also aware that you are receiving subliminal messages every day? The vast majority of advertising campaigns are filled with subliminal messages in the form of visual input designed to elicit a specific response from you. Every TV programme you watch is programming your mind. If you fall asleep in front of the TV, it is programming your mind subliminally. I had a girl friend once who would always fall asleep in front of the TV, then awaken and accuse me of having done all the wicked things the villain had been doing in the movie. Incredible!
Operating theatre staff know the a patient, asleep under anesthetic, can record what they say to each other, and that what they say can effect to patient's recovery from the operation.
Would it not be better to ensure that the subliminal messages reaching your subconscious mind are of your choosing and that they are creating the person, life and circumstances you want? Yes? Then read on.
It has long been known that in order to create lasting measurable change in yourself it is necessary for you to access the subconscious part of your mind. One excellent method of doing this is through the use of subliminal programming. By using subliminal recordings you can bypass the conscious mind and reprogram your inner mind through the use of carefully selected subliminal messages.
Subliminal messages can be constructed for a great many things like reducing stress, inducing relaxation, creating motivation, improving better study habits, smoking cessation or losing weight, to name but a few!
The subliminal messages that are passed to your subconscious mind really do begin to change your thinking patterns and physical habits. So lets look at exactly how they work.
Subliminal programmes contain positive affirmations (subliminal messages) that are designed to help you achieve a change in a specific area of your life or to help you achieve a particular goal. The mind receives these affirmations at a very deep level, where your beliefs and attitudes are stored. Exactly what beliefs really are and how they work is fully explained in my free course. For now please just accept that what you believe determines what you get and that beliefs can easily be changed. Subliminal massages are a very powerful and effective way of doing this. Because there is no interference from the critical conscious mind, the subconscious mind can immediately begin the work of making the subliminal messages a reality in your life.
Subliminal messages accelerate the process of changing your attitudes because they bypass the analytical critical conscious mind and begin to reprogram the subconscious mind much like reprogramming a computer.
Subliminal messages are usually embedded within a piece of music or masked with natural sounds such as ocean waves. When they are played, limiting beliefs that are stored in your subconscious mind are slowly and gently replaced by new, positive, empowering beliefs. It is an automatic and effortless method of changing yourself from the inside-out.
However, having said that, you should be aware that most of your subconscious programming has taken place over an entire lifetime and it is unlikely to be changed in a few hours or days. In addition you may have several issues that overlap and may require working with several different subliminal recordings. A example my be self confidence issues. You may have low self-esteem and listen to a subliminal recording to increase this area but find that after listening to it for several weeks you still lack self-esteem. In such a case you would need to also ensure the subliminal confidence messages on the recording included self-esteem affirmations or you could purchase or make two different subliminal recordings. I would advise getting a recording that helps to totally restructure your entire self-image. Better sill, make your own subliminal CD with the exact suggestions you need, and no others. It is your mind. Be careful what you put into it!
This type of overlapping issue can apply to almost anything in life so real, true, honest introspection is needed to determine what area of your life needs changed before you decide which subliminal recordings and subliminal messages are right for your particular circumstances and needs. These recording really are powerful but don't expect to turn around a chronic situation, that has been building up over many years, just in a few weeks. Like anything else in life, persistence over a long period is necessary.
Reprogramming your subconscious mind takes time. Some permanent changes may occur after just a month or two of daily use, other may take quite a bit longer. Remember too that subliminal messages are just one weapon in your arsenal. There are many others which I explain in depth in my free course.
Like all these good self-improvement techniques, subliminal programming can sometimes lead to initial irritation in some people, sometimes called the 'healing crisis'. This is because the subliminal messages conflict with established beliefs and the subconscious mind is fighting back. The subconscious mind hates change. Remember that your beliefs and attitudes were programmed into your subconscious mind to protect you! This probably happened when you were very young. Your life circumstances are different now you are an adult. You no longer need these old beliefs to keep you safe. This is when perseverance is essential. Don't get disheartened, its just a sign that your new beliefs are taking hold and that changes are happening. If you persist, your subconscious mind will soon realise who is the boss and the discomfort will be unlikely to occur again.
If you are going to make your own it is essential to know what to put in and what to leave out. Suggestions, like affirmations, must always be positive. Realise that the subconscious mind stores data in pictures, sounds, tastes, feelings etc., not in words. Never ever, ever use words of negation such as 'no', 'not', 'never', or refer to the thing you wish to change by using words like 'quit' , 'give up' or 'stop'. Instead refer to the new condition you wish to establish. For example you would not talk about 'quitting smoking' but rather say something like 'cigarettes taste of burning rubber'. Summarily don't refer to 'getting out of debt' but rather to 'living in abundance. If you talk about dept you will force your subconscious mind to store date about debt, thus bring more debt to you.
Its a great life, come and get your share!
