Do Subliminal Messages Really Work? My Personal Experience
You’ve heard about subliminal messages and the good things they can offer people, but still, have the same question: Do subliminal messages work?
In a world of seemingly endless self-improvement products, it’s hard to know what tools are helpful and what doesn’t.
By now, you’ve probably been around the block when it comes to this stuff. Seminar after seminar, book after book and nothing has changed for you.
You’re still repeating the same unhealthy cycles, over and over and you won’t change.
So do subliminal messages actually work? The shortest answer is: Yes.
They do! (I’ve them myself to stop the inner-critic.)
Obviously, I’m not expecting you to be swayed with the short answer. If it was that simple, you’d have been using subliminal audio and flashes a loooong time ago. So how about we jump right into the basics and go forward from there?
What Are Subliminal Messages?
Subliminal Messages are messages that are perceived by our minds, below our level of awareness. Meaning, we process them, but without being aware of doing so.
In other words, subliminal exposure works because they speak directly to our subconscious without us knowing what happened.
These messages either received visually or through hearing and are typically very short. Visual subliminals have been historically used in TV advertising, to influence the purchase of certain products.
Subliminal Suggestions Influence The Subconscious
Our unconscious brain does more work for us than we would think. Incredibly, it processes around 40 million bits of data per second. Our conscious part is only capable of processing approximately 40 bits per second.
I know what you’re thinking:
“But Edith, how can we function with only a tiny sliver of that much data?”
Well, our automated system handles most of our processing for us. Therefore, it is sensitive to any subliminal messages played in the background. It’s freeing up the remaining 40 for more critical decision-making.
For example, think of riding a bicycle. At first, it’s a difficult task to learn. You’re awkward, fall often, and can’t seem to coordinate your body.
However, once you’ve gotten the rhythm for it, it becomes second nature.
As a matter of fact, you probably don’t have to think AT ALL to ride after the first few times. All you need to is choose a direction to pedal and your body takes you there.
Let’s look at an EVEN simpler (and far more common) example:
Walking (bet you didn’t see that coming.)
I’m willing to wager any amount of money that you haven’t thought through all the steps involved in walking EVER.
You learned to when you were a toddler and that was that. Now? You simply… move.
You’re free to pick a direction to walk in because your brain care for all the details for you: Tensing your glutes, positioning your ankle, balancing, making sure you’re still breathing, maintaining speed, and all the other minuscule processes.
This is just a physical example. Think of all the mental and emotional paradigms that you accumulated over the years.
You possess definitions and scripts based on your childhood (the way you were raised), experiences, and traumas that run your life without you even realizing it. This can affect your actions and habits profoundly. Luckily, subliminal self-help is perfect to deal with these issues.
For instance, do you find yourself constantly low on cash? That’s possibly a script you developed early on. Maybe your parents had money struggles as a young child and this imprinted on you.
Your Emotional and Mental Patterns
This programming concept applies to many areas of life, including:
- Weight loss
- And Many More
Your unconscious has “selected” a status quo for each of these and works fervently to maintain them and does so using a series of conditioned ideas and actions called “paradigms”. All of this to keep us alive. (Notice I didn’t say happy… or rich, just alive.)
The biggest drawback of the definitions is the fact that they are indiscriminate.
Our subconscious does not choose right or wrong, happy or sad. It simply keeps us alive, even if that means keeping us broke or loveless.
In fact, our mechanism works SO well, that it oftentimes sees change as a challenge to our survival. You’ve probably seen this in your own life without knowing the cause.
Ever started losing weight to just put it back on 6 weeks later? Maybe you’ve come into money at a few points in life but never managed to hold on to it.
Do you keep attracting romantic relationships with the same kind of person over and over? No matter how many times you try to choose better partners, it ends up the same.
If you’ve experienced repeating cycles like these it’s because you have a fixated pattern that is deeply rooted in your brain.
How Do Subliminal Messages Work
Change is hard enough as is, but it sucks to want change and have our minds go against us. THIS is where subliminal messages do their work most effectively.
Subliminal messages work in a way that allows us to selectively rewrite the false conditioning that was forced on us.
The subliminal messages are specially phrased to have maximum impact and are most often combined with frequencies that put us in the optimal relaxed state for change.
Of course, there are other methods that work for re-shifting your beliefs. One of the more known methods is positive affirmations. However, they bear one critical flaw that makes them far less valid than subliminal tapes.
Do Subliminal Messages Work Better Than Affirmations?
Affirmations are beneficial to some extent. The results of countless individuals online who have used them attest to that… Even I practiced them sometimes as part of my personal development.
However, since your mind resists change because it threatens your familiar zone, the suggestions cannot bypass that wall.
You see, as powerful as spoken suggestions may be, they must be processed by the rational thinking layer. Which allows that tiny voice in the back of our heads to mess it up for us.
Imagine using an affirmation to feel more comfortable about our physical appearance. Something as simple as: “I am happy with how I look.”
You’re probably already hearing that tiny voice pointing out flaws in your body, even though it’s NOT YOUR AFFIRMATION.
So, imagine trying to replicate that process, for a far more deeply held belief. Such as those around money or relationships.
You’ll not only be met with a tiny voice pointing out the negatives but you may even be met with outright bad moods or depression.
Thus, we often give up before the affirmations can give us the results we want.
By using subliminal messages, we can bypass our resistance altogether.
Still not sure if subliminal messages work efficiently? Well, I’ll tell you about my own personal experience with them and how my life changed forever.
My Struggle for Money
About 8 years ago my life was completely different from the one I enjoy today. I struggled a lot with money and having confidence in myself. I could provide for myself, but it was always JUST enough to get by.
In the back of my mind, I knew that I was meant to help the world in a large way somehow, but my inner blockages prevented me from taking a single step in that direction.
I was on the same path that many of you are on right now. Seminars, E-Books, videos on confidence, and posture.
I was pretty much trying to “fake it till I made it.”
The Turning Point
Eventually, I came across the idea of our programming and how by shifting it, you skyrocket your potential and achieve greatness. I started off simply, using affirmations every morning and night with a good deal of success.
I could feel it was doing the job – at least, for the small things. When I got to deeper-held traumas that resulted in fear, I could feel my inner self fighting against the new molds I wanted for myself. I HAD to figure out a way around it.
That’s when I came across the idea of subliminal messaging. I questioned their value and was skeptical about whether they work or not.
I answered my own question with a ton of research and discovered that subliminal messages held the ability to bypass the internal resistance of my most stubborn paradigms.
The only problem was, there were no good subliminal resources online at the point in time that really worked.
So, I made my own and the outcomes were outstanding!
Having seen the success, they made for me, I decided to share my subliminal programs with the world and help millions reach their potential and change their lives for the better. Thus, the birth of Vortex Success.
Science Proves Subliminal Messages Do Work
If you’re still having a hard time grasping the influence of subliminal messages, then how about you let the science show you?
Dr. Kenneth Parker, a psychologist at Queens College New York, once conducted a study on the impact of subliminal messages on the academic performance of college students.
60 students were chosen at random and enrolled in a summer law course with the professor for 6 weeks. Another 60 students were placed in a control group.
Before 3 out of every 5 lectures during the course, the students were subliminally stimulated, visually. Students who were stimulated subliminally, earned significantly higher grades than the control group. Subliminal messages, LITERALLY made students perform better in school.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are tons of academic research that prove time after time the effectiveness of subliminal stimuli.
But I don’t need studies to know that subliminal messages do work. Every day, I get countless emails from people who tell me that my subliminal recordings have changed their lives.
The Answer to Your Question – Do Subliminals Work
Subliminal messages absolutely work as long as they are formulated correctly and the suggestions deal with your challenges. Of course, it takes consistency on your end. Just like physical training in the gym. Here, you’re exercising your mental muscles.
If you’re still unsure, why not give subliminal messages a try and see for yourself. Take the leap and enjoy the life-changing advantages of subliminal messages.
Spend some time listening to one of the recordings available in my audio library and experience, you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. I’m sure you’ll be surprised by what you find.
