So much research has been done about subliminal hypnosis and subliminal programming over the years. Here at the Complete Mind Therapy Institute we are experts at positive life change through the use of combined modalities.
What Exactly Is Subliminal Programming?
Subliminal programming is specifically designed to get information to the subconscious level of the mind without it being detected by the conscious mind. To better understand how the mind works there are two levels of the mind that we will discuss.
- The Conscious Mind -and
- The Subconscious Mind
The Conscious Mind
The function of the cnscious mind is to deal with what is happening in the present, the here and now so to speak. Although the conscious mind only makes up about 5% of the mind, it dominates over the subconscious mind. As the mind’s present feature it is primarily concerned with the present. In other words the conscious is the current conversation, this article you are readung, etc. The conscious mind also acts as a filter of the subconscious mind. The guard to the doorway to the subconscious mind. The conscious mind is often resistant to change in our lives because it is content in the present situations.
The Subconscious Mind
The subconscious mind as its name implies is subordinate or sub to the conscious mind. The subconscious mind of course is about 95% of the mind and is responsible for storing and retrieving every experience that we have ever experienced throughout our lives. If we were to explain it as a computer which our mind is often referred to as the most awesome computer in existence. The subconscious mind is the playground for change.
Anything that you desire to change in your life can be changed and the most effective means of change is to change the perception you hold in your mind about the situation. The subconscious mind can not reason fantasy from reality, and if you plant a idea into the subconscious mind the subconscious then begins to work to facilitate the desired change.
Dealing with the subconscious can be done effectively by means of such modalities as hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming, affirmations, an visualization.
Subliminal Messages in Advertising
The concept of subliminal advertising was first introduced back in the 1950’s, 1957 to be exact. A gentleman by the name of James Vicary claimed to have introduced subliminal messages into a movie that was playing at a New Jersey movie house. He also claimed that these messages that were inserted between framse of the movie flashed on the screen so quickly that the human conscious did not see them, but the eyes and the subconscious did. It was not possible for the conscious mind to process the information.
So what did these inserted frames actually say and what effect did they allegedly have on the movie goers? Well the messages that Vicary allegedly inserted into the film were:
- Hungry? Eat popcorn. and
- Drink Coca Cola
These messages flashed so quickly that
It was displayed so fast thatWe people never consciously could notice them.
The Vicary Fraud
James Vicary had perpetrated a huge fraud. Or did he? He later claimed that the whole thing was a hoax an he had made it all up. But I am not quite sure I really believe that claim. People are often motivated to claim things that are not necessarily true especially about a subject that would be as controversial as mind control.
Is Subliminal Programming Mind Control
Well, if someone can get you to do something that you would not have necessarily done, such as in the Vicary sitaution as go to the concession stand and buy popcorn or a soda, well then the answer would have to be a resounding “YES”
But mind control has been practiced subtly in advertising for years, Every commercial on television, every advertisement in print media is in fact an example of mind control.
Years ago I saw an advertisement in a magazine. It was a travel agents ad, or was it? Let me share the layout with you here.
It was a pull out ad, which the advertiser had obviously spent a pretty penny on, it was a picture of a scene with a rugged looking cowboy sitting on top of his horse, looking over a herd of cattle. This subliminally suggests everything the avareage guy truly desires. To be free and adventurous. It is a beautiful landscape, a scene that anyone woul want to experience.
Yet in the very corner of the ad it said simply four words, and without those four words you would never have known what was being sold. But the four words were, “Come to Marlboro Country”
Yup it was not a travel agency ad, but an advertisement to sell Marlboro brand cigarettes.
Or maybe while you were watching the Super Bowl this past February you may have noticed one of the
When Hypnosis Meets Subliminal
Hypnosis and subliminal walk hand in hand here at the Complete Mind Therapy Institute. As our name implies we employ any and all modalities in our treatment programs. It is of course our desire to help our clients to achieve their objectives by whatever means necessary.
By combining such things as hypnosis and subliminal programming we are able to first through the hypnosis plant the suggestions of change directly passed the conscious mind into the subconscious mind, and by combining the heypnosis with subliminal recordings that reinforce that desired change we multipy the effectiveness of the treatment.
Although subliminal programming can be one in a variety of ways the two most popular mathods are verbally by recording positive affirmations and masking them just below the level of conscious awareness with over tones of music or other sounds, and the second most popular is very similar to the method employed in the Vicary experimant mentioned above,I personally use a program that flashes the positive affirmations that I have chosen to flash on my computer screen while I work online. The flashes are not noticable to the human eye but are recorded by the subconscious mind and acted upon.
I have personally studied the use of Subliminal programming for years since i was first exposed to it in the early 1980’s. And have used it in my own life since that time.
