Subliminal Hypnosis

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.

  1. The Conscious Mind -and
  2. 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.

I Was Just Asked, Can You Get Hypnotized Online?

With the evolution of technology it is no big surprise that someone would eventually ask can you be hypnotized online?

Well, the answer is Yes, you can be hypnotized online, but let’s take the discussion one step further. You can be hypnotized not only online but you can also be hypnotized on the phone, as a matter of fact you can be hypnotized in any form of communication.

More and more is being learned about hypnosis each an every day.  Although hypnosis has been practiced for many years

Conscious Mind vs Subconscious Mind

The Battle of the Minds


There is a raging battle that is ongoing within our minds all of the time. The two primary elements of our mind that we are going to discuss in this post are the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. So the purpose of this post is to differentiate the two for better understanding as they are related to hypnosis

The Conscious Mind

This conscious mind is the part of your mind that has to figure things out with its limited abilities.  It is about 5% of your total mind consciously, and even the genius Albert Einstein it is estimated used only about 6% of his mind, so you are not too far behind the great Einstein.

The conscious mind is the part of the mind that sometimes has a hard time chewing gum and walking at the same time.

The conscious mind is as I like to define it as “the here and now.” Our short-term memory, it’s logical, analyzes things, and is a creature of habit, it is, however, self-aware and the decision maker. It is the part of the mind that is “in charge”. It is the BOSS!

In order for us to make any positive changes in our lives and to become mentally fit you must be consciously aware of the need for change, you must be motivated to change, and you must believe that you can achieve the goal. For example, we know that getting our body into shape involves far more than merely thinking about going to the gym. We must make the trek to the gym and we must follow a workout routine. Well, our mental fitness calls for the same level of dedication. So, in order for us to make these positive changes, the process of hypnosis is often utilized to bypass the negative conscious mind and bring the suggestions of the desired results directly to the subconscious mind.

As I stated the conscious mind is the boss and it is in charge, it can often sabotage our efforts to change because of its desire to maintain the status quo. For example, we want to lose weight, and we start attempting to convince ourselves that we want to lose the weight, and the conscious mind starts reasoning that it is quite content the way it is and that we are attempting to starve ourselves.

Yes, that little old 5% is the Boss and it is in complete control, and in that case, it would, in fact, sabotage our wishes and our desire to lose the weight. But there is hope, and that is why I am writing this post.


The Subconscious Mind

Unlike the conscious mind, the subconscious mind comprises nearly 95% of our mind. But it is innocent and naive. Even though it is equated to the most powerful computer ever made. It is capable of running multiple tasks simultaneously, it does not judge us, criticize us, analyze or reject what we attempt to do. It acts quickly but often acts improperly. It is unfortunately unaware. It does not understand nor have a sense of humor and takes everything literally.

The purpose of the subconscious mind is to react immediately to the commands that are given to it from the conscious mind and rely on its decision-making capabilities completely. The subconscious mind is subject to the conscious mind hence the name sub-conscious or below the conscious.

The subconscious mind, however, wants to help us as much as possible and it tries to help in the best way it knows how. However being on the intelligence level of a four or five-year-old child many times does not help us the proper way as it simply is not aware of how to help, and needs to be directed. But fear not because there is help.

Once something becomes familiar to us, it becomes part of the subconscious mind. We do so many things subconsciously each day that we do not even realize. Here are some examples of things that we do subconsciously every day.





just to name a few, you see the subconscious is the storehouse of the brain, once you have experienced something it is forever retained in the subconscious mind.

For example I want to ask you a question.

Ready, here goes.


Have You Experienced Your First Kiss?

Now that may seem like a ridiculous question to some, but let me explain why this most basic question is so important to understanding the workings of the subconscious mind.

If you have indeed experienced your first kiss, when you read that question most likely an image appeared in your mind, an image of the other person with whom you shared that experience. Now that experience could have been last week, last month, last year, or twenty or thirty years ago. It does not matter, because when I asked the question it was worded in a way that was very specific. “Your First Kiss” of course you can have many first kisses in many different relationships, but you can only have one “First Kiss”.


The Subconscious Mind Sees, Hears, Smells, Tastes, and Feels Everything You Experience in Your Life

The subconscious mind. collects all of our life’s experiences, it always hears, and experiences everything that is passed through to it by our five major senses, more importantly, it always pays attention and is anxiously awaiting instructions on how to help us in the proper way. As I stated earlier on the subconscious is always desiring to help us. And we can program that subconscious mind by means of hypnosis.


As information is gathered into the subconscious mind it is classified and stored for later use, after all, you never know when someone is going to come along and ask you about your “first kiss” and being such a momentous event in your life you would never want to forget that now would you?

But we can program our subconscious mind so that we can accomplish just about anything we desire to accomplish in our lives. This is done with hypnotic suggestion whether delivered by a hypnotist during a hypnotherapy session or delivered through self-induced hypnosis. Either way, once that suggestion is planted into the subconscious mind it does not know the difference between reality and perception, so if we give it an assignment it simply goes to work to accomplish its objectives.
