The subconscious mind is the powerhouse of manifestation. Although nearly every law of attraction technique focuses only on changing the conscious mind, 95% of our thoughts, actions and outcomes in life actually come from the subconscious mind. In this post, I’ll be teaching you how subliminals work and how you can start speaking the “secret language” of the subconscious mind to shift realities and manifest change faster than you ever imagined possible.
Subliminals: Shifting Realities Fast [How do subliminals work?]
The mind is divided into two parts: the conscious and the subconscious.
The conscious mind could be described as the “gatekeeper”. It guards the subconscious mind by acting as a filter.
When we are conscious of something, we can decide not to accept it into the subconscious mind.
However, when we are unconscious of something, it can pass freely into the subconscious mind.
Subliminals work by bypassing the filter of the conscious mind and making changes to the subconscious mind, which is the part of the mind influencing us 95% of the time.
P.S. I’ve created a library of 100+ powerful subliminals to help you harness the power of your subconscious and manifest change in all areas of your life. Click below to learn more about how these subliminals can shift you into a totally new reality.
The conscious mind can only accept or reject the ideas that it notices.
Whatever you have manifested in your life so far — your career, your finances, your romantic relationship, your friendships, and even your appearance — are all a result of how your subconscious mind has been programmed up until now.
Your subconscious mind has been programmed by:
- Conversations you overheard as a baby before you could consciously form memories
- Conversations you heard around you that were too quiet to be picked up by your conscious mind (e.g. subconsciously hearing your parents talk through the walls as a child)
- Your physical environment (especially your home environment)
- The friends you spent the most time with
- What television programs played in the background of your home as a child
- Advertisements you were exposed to on a daily basis
- The way you saw your parents treating each other and other people
- Anything you became so accustomed to, you stopped noticing it consciously
Now I’m going to show you an example of how all these factors can program your subconscious mind in ways that completely alter your beliefs, actions and outcomes in life.
Let’s say you were raised by parents that taught you the importance of obeying the law. Everyone around you obeyed the law and you grew up living in a safe, upscale neighborhood.
All your friends and family were law-abiding citizens and you were rarely exposed to crime.
Under these conditions, you have been consciously and subconsciously programmed to follow the law.
Now, let’s say that a stranger walks up to you one day and tells you to steal a candy bar. You would immediately reject their attempt to influence you because you are conscious of it and therefore able to reject and refuse the idea.
On the other hand, let’s say you were raised in a low-income neighborhood. One of your parents is in jail and your other parent is overworked trying to support your family, so they weren’t able to spend much time teaching you a moral code as a child.
The main influences in your life were a group of friends you fell into who — for the most part — ignored the law.
Although you tried to follow the law and do the right thing, your exposure to crime in your environment gradually influenced your subconscious mind over time because you weren’t totally aware of it and therefore the conscious mind didn’t filter out these influences.
Under these conditions, if someone asked you to steal something, you would be much more likely to do it because of the way your subconscious mind had been programmed.
The Subconscious Mind is 3,000 Times More Powerful
Research has shown that the conscious mind can only process 5-9 bits of information at any given time, while the subconscious mind can process 20,000 bits of information at the same time.
This proves that the subconscious mind is thousands of times more effective at processing information than the conscious mind, making it several times more powerful for manifesting changes in our lives.
Despite the immense power of the subconscious mind, most law of attraction techniques only focus on influencing the conscious mind.
Here is a list of some popular law of attraction methods that are targeted to the conscious mind:
- Spoken affirmations
The problem is, the conscious mind is able to choose to reject or accept ideas at will, and it will always reject new ideas that are different from what has already been programmed into the subconscious.
Why It’s Impossible to Manifest Without the Subconscious
Let’s say you have been poor your entire life.
Your parents were poor, your grandparents were poor, and all of your friends have always been poor. Because of these environmental influences, your subconscious mind has been thoroughly programmed to believe: “I am poor.”
You may wake up one day and decide you’re going to use the law of attraction to manifest more money. After Googling some law of attraction techniques, you settle on visualizing more money and saying daily wealth affirmations.
So, you sit down to meditate.
You close your eyes and imagine yourself with millions of dollars in the bank.
Your conscious mind rejects the possibility of this kind of “big money” ever coming to you, and you end your visualization feeling even more depressed than before.
Since that didn’t work, you decide to test out some money affirmations.
You repeat to yourself in the mirror: “I am wealthy.”, “Money is always flowing into my life.”, etc.
Just like with the money visualization exercise, these affirmations leave you feeling worse than before you started.
The reason both these law of attraction techniques made you feel so badly is because they were trying to put new ideas into your conscious mind that it was constantly rejecting, over and over again, because they were completely different than what had already been accepted in the subconscious mind.
Subliminals Speak to the Subconscious Mind
The only way to plant a new idea in the mind that will have a chance to grow into a full-blown manifestation is to find a way of speaking directly to the subconscious mind without trying to pass through the filter of the conscious mind first.
In other words, you must speak the “secret language” of the subconscious mind so it can understand and accept what you’re saying to it without the conscious mind’s awareness.
The “Secret Language” of the Subconscious
The conscious mind is the part of the brain we’re speaking to with affirmations, visualization and scripting exercises.
The subconscious is a little more tricky to communicate with.
To communicate something to the subconscious mind, we need to suggest it without letting the conscious mind in on what we’re saying.
Things like vision boards and motivational posters can communicate to the subconscious mind because when something is hanging on the wall in our physical environment long enough, our conscious mind eventually stops paying attention to it and lets down its guard.
But by far, the most effective way to influence the subconscious mind is through subliminals.
The word “subliminal” simply means: below the threshold.
In this case, subliminals operate below the threshold of our own consciousness.
How Subliminals Can Shift Your Reality
The most popular forms of subliminals are visual subliminals and auditory subliminals.
Visual subliminals are the subliminal messages we’re talking about when it comes to the famous “Drink Coca-Cola” and “Eat Popcorn” messages that were flashed on the screen in the 1957 James Vicary experiments.
Just like these subliminals increased sales by communicating with the unconscious part of the audience’s minds, we can program our own minds using subliminals.
Nothing is off limits when it comes to the changes we can make by incorporating subliminal listening sessions into our daily routine.
From physical changes in appearance, to the relationship of our dreams, to greater wealth and abundance — subliminals are a powerful tool to set the ball in motion for massive shifts in all areas of our lives.

Reprogram Yourself For What You Truly Want in Life
Your entire life up until this point has been a result of the ways your subconscious mind has been programmed by everything around you.
The media, your parents, your friends, and even your physical environment have all shaped you and your life into what they are today.
Most of us have been conditioned for so long into certain ways of thinking that we feel powerless to make any major changes.
We accept it as fact that we can’t attract money, our soulmate, our dream job, or the body we want.
If nothing else, I hope you leave this article with a fresh reawakening to your own power.
You can truly be, do or have anything you want in life, no matter how outlandish or impossible it may have seemed to you in the past.
Only you hold the key to your own power, and you can choose in any moment to reclaim that key and open the door to an entirely new reality.
