Subliminal Suggestions: What Exactly Are They?
Subliminal suggestions are messages that are embedded into the deep subconscious. The conscious mind does not recognize these messages at all but will affect the subconscious mind in a positive of a negative way and can affect ones thoughts at a later date which will show in their behaviour or actions and attitudes as well as their belief systems and value systems.
Sub and luminal came from the Latin language and if put together you get subliminal which if translated would mean under threshold. There are two ways in which this subliminal suggestion works.
A message is spoken and then it is recorded backwards onto a disc and they call this back masking or otherwise you can write something on paper and this is then flashed on a screen at a high speed and this is a 25th frame.
Scientists have to date not been able to prove that subliminal suggestions are valid even after years of research. Some believe it works and again it’s only in the eyes of the beholder. If it works great if it doesn’t you haven’t lost anything.
Subliminal messages are in everything you see, or read and the music you listen to even the contents of this article there is hidden subliminal messages. When speaking or giving someone advise you are sending out subliminal frequencies to that person.
Basically all this boils down to is control of another’s mind whichever way you look at it directly or indirectly. But you have to do subliminal suggestions the right way. Is it a form of hypnosis? The advertising industry seems to be on the winning side as they “force” the viewer to buy their products by tampering with the subconscious.
Hidden subliminal suggestions are hidden in sentences for instance “stocks are limited” or “limited edition” and the subconscious mind says run out and buy now or this is supposedly what it should do. The subconscious will accept anything you feed it and the conscious mind only accepts what it knows.
