As someone who creates, recommends and uses subliminals on a daily basis, one of the questions I get asked most frequently is: how do subliminals work?
There’s a lot of mystery surrounding the inner workings of subliminal affirmations. Many people begin using them and start seeing huge changes in their body, mind or life, only to wonder: how is simply listening to an audio track bringing about all these changes?
In this post, we’ll be diving deep into how subliminals shift the thoughts in the subconscious mind and can bring about total mind-body-soul transformation in your life.
Subliminals: “Brainwash Yourself” for Anything You Want
One way of understanding subliminals is that they are a way to “hack” into your own subconscious brain and essentially brainwash yourself for anything you want in life.
To understand how this subliminal “brainwashing” process actually happens, we need to start by talking about the two different parts of your brain: the conscious, and the subconscious.
The Conscious Mind:
The conscious mind makes up 5% of the brain.
Although it contains only a fraction of your total brainpower, it is the part of the brain that nearly every motivational speaker, law of attraction method and inspirational book is working upon.
Whenever you make a decision, set a goal for the future, or speak affirmations aloud in the mirror, you are changing the thoughts in the conscious part of your brain.
But remember: the conscious brain only makes up 5%. So that’s going on in the other 95% of the brain?
One word: the subconscious.
The Subconscious Mind:
Although our subconscious mind makes up a startling 95% of our mind, it is largely ignored in both the law of attraction community and the wider inspirational/motivational community.
If you’ve ever wondered why you just feel “stuck” in a certain area of your life no matter what you try to do to change it, what you’re coming up against are the unconscious habits of thought in your subconscious mind — thoughts, by the way, that you probably aren’t even aware of.
These unconscious thoughts in the subconscious mind control nearly everything in our lives.
Things controlled by the subconscious mind:
- The speed of our metabolism
- Where & how we store fat on the body
- All our natural bodily processes (sleep, heartbeat, breathing, etc)
- The types of romantic partners we attract (and repel)
- Who we are romantically and physically attracted to
- What patterns we play out unconsciously in our relationships
- The types of friendships we attract
- How we interact with others
- How we generally “feel” on a day-to-day basis
- The way we speak, walk and talk
- What we worry about
- How confident we feel about ourselves
- ….and millions of other things.
If it were possible to list out everything in our lives under the control of the subconscious mind, the list would probably be so long it could fill hundreds of books.
Although there is still very little known about this powerful part of the brain, this 1950s experiment gives us a jaw-dropping look into what is possible when we begin to harness this power toward a specific objective.
The Subliminals Experiment That Shook the World
In 1957, a man by the name of James Vicary conducted a series of experiments that shook the world to its core.
He created a visual subliminal advertisement that flashed on a movie screen to an unknowing audience for just a fraction of a second.
The ads contained large-font text that read “Eat Popcorn” and “Drink Coca Cola”.
Although not a single person in the audience could consciously remember seeing the ad, they were all deeply affected by it.
So much so, that many of them purchased significantly more popcorn and Coca-Cola than they ever did previously — resulting in a huge spike in soda and snack sales for the movie theater.
Vicary’s “brainwashing” subliminal experiments marked a groundbreaking moment in modern day advertising.
These experiments proved a terrifying and astounding fact, a fact that advertisers would forever remember and capitalize on even to this very moment.
The discovery was this: masses of people can be influenced by subliminal messages in advertising to buy products, without consciously realizing they’re being influenced in this way.
Modern Day Subliminals: Are you being brainwashed?
If experiments on subliminal messages in advertising were happening like this all the way back in the 1950s, you can only imagine how much subliminal advertising has evolved since then.
Fast-forward to 2020, and subliminals are influencing our subconscious mind everywhere we go. Sometimes, we catch companies red-handed in their efforts to use subliminal to influence us to buy their products.
Here is an example of Coca-Cola using a subliminal in an ad right under our noses:
You have to imagine that for every time someone has noticed a subliminal message in advertising, there are hundreds if not thousands of subliminals in ads that forever go unnoticed.
The moral of the story is this: our subconscious minds are already being subliminally affected by so many things around us on a day-to-day basis.
Actively listening to subliminals in order to change our own mind and manifest what we want in life is how we can reclaim our own power.
How to “Brainwash Yourself” With Subliminals
Much like the subliminal messages in ads, subliminal audio tracks are designed to influence our subconscious mind beneath the awareness of our conscious mind.
This time, however, we get to choose the message we’re putting into our own brain and therefore what kinds of outcomes we’re creating in our lives.
Rather than being exposed to a subliminal advertisement from a company trying to influence us to buy from them, we are exposing our own mind to subliminals that put us on the path to our own growth and evolution — however we define that for ourselves.
Just like subliminal ads can motivate us to take actions without knowing why, when we begin listening to subliminal audio tracks designed for the changes we want to make in life we will find ourselves naturally and effortlessly manifesting those changes without consciously thinking about it.
Effortless Manifestation Begins in the Subconscious
This is why so many people begin to experience rapid and seemingly effortless movement in the direction of their desires when they begin listening to subliminals.
They are not only removing the subconscious negative thinking that has kept them “stuck” in unwanted cycles and patterns, but they are replacing those negative thoughts powerful, positive ideas within the subconscious.
These new patterns of subconscious thought cause a radical shift in their energy which then completely alters what they attract back to them in their lives.
Here’s a shortlist of some of the positive benefits you can experience from listening to subliminals:
- Changes in your physical appearance
- Increase in your natural reserves of energy
- Enhanced creative abilities or genius levels of thinking
- Increased security, happiness and connection in your relationships
- Boost in your self-confidence and day-to-day mood
- Better sleeping patterns
- Faster weight loss & muscle growth
- Attract the romantic relationships or friendships you desire
- Open new streams of income / amplify financial abundance in your life
- …and so much more.
Virtually anything you can imagine is possible when you begin to harness the power of your own subconscious mind.
Personally, I have used subliminals in my own life to attract my soulmate relationship, build the business of my dreams, receive unexpected money and lose 20 pounds.
Every one of these changes was something that had felt nearly impossible for me to change for years, and only through the power of subliminals was I able to alter my own subconscious and finally experience the changes I had desperately wanted for so long.
