The Secret Behind Subliminal Messages

180x150_02

What makes subliminal messages so effective? The secret behind them is a fact that advertisers have known for decades; the more people are exposed to something, the easier it is to influence them.

Suppose, for example, that you want to give up smoking. You know it’s bad for your health, it’s expensive, and it’s becoming more and more anti-social. You have the desire to give up, for all the right reasons, but just can’t seem to take it to that final stage.

Believe it or not, your conscious mind is getting in the way. No matter what you really think, you don’t have the ability to put it into practice in the regular course of events. Your day is busy, you’ve got lots of other things on your mind, and you haven’t given the idea of quitting smoking enough priority.

The Subliminal Advantage

Subliminal messages are positive affirmations presented to your ears or eyes at a rate or volume that your conscious mind is unable to detect. Your subconscious mind, however, takes in everything. These messages bypass your logical conscious state and go directly to your subconscious. If messages are sent frequently enough they’ll start to change the way you think, and therefore the way you behave.

Someone who wants to give up smoking might be presented with subliminal messages similar to these:

• I am stronger than cigarettes
• I respect and nurture my body
• I am able to resist the temptation of smoking

Reading these three short affirmations on a page won’t produce any magical results within your subconscious mind. But imagine the impact if, instead of three messages, your subconscious was exposed to thousands – over and over again – for a couple of weeks. All the research shows the same thing: gradually your attitude changes, and then your behavior.

How Subliminal Messages Work

Some people argue that, if you can’t hear the sounds, or you can’t see the images, how can they possibly make any difference? The point is that you aren’t aware that you’re hearing or seeing the messages, but your subconscious mind still takes them in. That’s the reason why subliminal messages work in the first place – because they sneak into your head, bypassing your conscious rational mind, and getting at the core of your belief system.

You’re exposed to subliminal messages every day. You might have the radio on in the morning when you drive to work and keep hearing about a new film that’s just come out. The first time you hear it you give it your attention. As the days turn into weeks you’re no longer consciously listening to it, but the information flows into your subconscious mind. If it’s a film that interests you, this constant subtle reminder will probably be enough to get you to go to the cinema and watch it.

Now think how powerful that process would be if it was something you desperately wanted to achieve, like giving up smoking. Your determination combined with the mind-changing power of those positive affirmations makes a winning formula. Eventually you’ll think of smoking as a disgusting, destructive habit that you can’t believe you started in the first place.

If you really and truly want to make lasting changes in your behavior but can’t seem to find the impetus to get going, try subliminal messages. You’ve got nothing to lose and the chance to gain a new and more rewarding lifestyle.

Brain Exercises

Unleash Your Genius with Genius Brain Power

When people think of exercising it often involves physical exertion to strengthen muscles. The human brain is also an important “muscle” in the body and with the right brain training and brain exercises you can help keep your mind fit, alert and ready to handle the rigors of a typical working day. Often brain exercises come in the form of games that help train the brain improve memory, strategize and think in advance. Some common forms of brain exercise include chess, memory games and mathematical problem solving.

Another way to exercise the brain is through brainwave entrainment. Isochronic tones are computer generated tones that are pulsed at specific frequencies to achieve desired effects such as productivity or relaxation. Although brainwave entrainment is not a new practice — binaural beats have been used in brain training since the mid-1800’s — the use of computer generated isochronic tones has become more popular lately and are also proving to be more effective in helping people improve their memory and intelligence.

Unfortunately when most people stop formal schooling, either by achieving a degree or choosing to drop out, the study habits and brain training that was part of their daily schedule also ends. The memorization and critical thinking that helped get us through school shouldn’t have to stop just because a specific goal has been reached. In fact, if you don’t keep up with brain exercises your mind will become lazy and won’t function in the as sharply as it used to.

Keeping the brain sharp requires exercise the same way muscles in the body require regular work outs to maintain a defined shape. The more you train your brain with brain exercises including strategy games, meditation and brainwave entrainment the better your memory, cognitive thinking and problem solving will be. We can’t expect our brains to always operate at the highest levels possible, but we can take proactive steps to help improve our focus, retain information and prevent memory loss.

Six Benefits of Brainwave Entrainment

  1. Enhance Your Whole Brain Operation

The quality of your entire life can be transformed if you improve your brain function. The word holographic comes from the word whole. The fascinating feature of a hologram is its wholeness and its inability to be divided into parts. The human brain can be used in a whole, holistic, or holographic way. On the other hand, your brain can be used in a partial, unbalanced, or fragmented way. Unfortunately, in our world right now, using our brains in an unbalanced and fragmented way seems to be the norm! Most of life’s illusions, difficulties, and limitations are directly related to unbalanced brain function. The first benefit of brainwave entrainment is that it synchronizes your two hemispheres into working in a holistic way.

2. Stimulate Clarity in Your Thinking

Have you heard of the “Mozart Effect”? Just look it up in Google. In the early 1990s, a team of psychologists discovered that sound waves could improve your brain’s ability to think. In writing his great music, Mozart “accidentally” improved brainwave function in those who listened. People still buy Mozart CDs today to help students learn math and other subjects better. However, with scientific design and feedback, today’s Brainwave Entrainment audios can stimulate the brain even better. When your brain is functioning properly in this way, you simply think more clearly.

One of the best brainwave entrainment audios I’ve ever listened to is the Brain Evolution System. 30 minutes of listening helps to refresh me, center me, and balance my thinking.

3. Abolish Your Addictions

Fragmenting our consciousness causes addictions. We divide our brain experience into past, present, and future. When we divide our awareness in this way, we actually start to believe that we are a victim of our circumstances. When we play the victim role, we experience fear, anxiety, depression, and other limiting emotions. We also experience procrastination, need for approval, difficulty in making decisions, and other ineffective feelings and behaviors. When we lack confidence, we engage in compulsive and addictive behaviors for temporary relief from tension and anxiety. What we are really seeking is wholeness and peace, but addictive behaviors never satisfy. Proper brainwave entrainment can reestablish harmony and wholeness in our brain and end these addictions.

4. Ignite Your Creativity

Have you ever had great ideas in the shower? How about while immersed in nature? These experiences help our brain to open up and break free from rigid pathways. Brainwave entrainment audio tracks can also ignite your creativity by “hooking up” parts of our brain that normally are dormant. These new brainwave patterns help us solve problems in new ways. Creativity isn’t just about artistic pursuits. Creativity means better relationships, better finances, and better health. Seeing the world in bright new ways will help you in every area of your life.

5. Intensify Your Energy Level

Here’s what the brainwave entrainment audios actually do, in very simplified form. The headphones give you slightly different frequencies in each ear. Your brain takes those two frequencies and creates a third frequency, which then aligns your own brain waves into a different pattern. Your brain kind of takes the “difference” between the two frequencies and matches that. When I listen to the audios I go into a very deep relaxation state that rejuvenates me more than a nap! Our modern world makes it hard to get into those deeper relaxation states. Thus, we feel tired most of the time. Brainwave entrainment makes it possible to hit those deep wave states, and this gives us increased energy levels.

6. Increase Your Productivity and Financial Situation

The increase in productivity comes from all of the other factors listed above. When you think more creatively and have more energy, you can’t help but do better financially! Some of you will get promotions as your skills and confidence increase. Some of you will start your own small business or home business with your new ideas. Whatever you do to make money, you’ll do it better with your brain operating at full power.

Now, here’s a bonus question for you. Why Do We Need Brainwave Entrainment? Well, why are our brains so fragmented and working at half-speed? Think of our world situation and the forces that affect our bodies and brains. Most people run a hectic schedule and never get enough sleep. They use computers and cell phones that disrupt their brain patterns. Other reasons for poor brain function include poor nutrition, emotional denial, and relationship conflict. Brainwave entrainment isn’t a cure all, but it sure can help you handle life more successfully. You also need life balance, proper sleep, time in nature, and sometimes therapy or counseling. The best thing for you to do is to give the brainwave entrainment a try. You can start your 21-Day Trial by clicking on the link below.

Easier And Effective Memorization Techniques

Memorization tires most of us. Admit it, we’d rather glance on our palm tops or organizers once in a while for convenience. Memorization is something we don’t want to deal with for the rest of our lives although we deal with it in school because it’s something we need to do.
Now that’s just odd. When we need to do something, we tend to give our best shot at it. Why can’t we do the same thing with our simple everyday activities?
One effective and interesting way of familiarization and memorization of objects at a particular time or event is to associate them with a journey. The place or location where the journey happens can be stationary but not you, the traveler. You should come across the entire set of objects which are available on the setting you have chosen.
We can set the movie house as an example for this memory improvement approach. Before you enter the movie house lobby, you purchase tickets for you and your friend. You know it’s the ticket booth because you see people falling in line to buy their own tickets. Now, associate the elements you see with what you need to remember. Let’s pretend that you need to buy grocery items after seeing a movie. Seeing the long line of moviegoers to the ticket booth is a start. You can make the line of moviegoers going to the ticket booth, purchase chunks of meat instead of tickets. After getting your own meat chunk from the ticket booth, you then proceed to the lobby where you can buy popcorn and drinks served by two food counter clerks. The first clerk is named Ms. Tomato while the other one is named Mr. Lettuce. One has a head like a tomato and the others head looks like lettuce. After ordering, you are then served by Ms. Tomato a bucket of cheese bars instead of pop corn and butter for drinks.
After you’re satisfied with what you bought, you and your friend proceed to the movie theater and find yourselves a seat. Imagine the seats as giant apples. As you sit back and wait for the movie to start, picture the widescreen in front operated by four grocery clerks pulling the scenes with giant sausages stringed together from the projection screen to make the image move from one picture to another. Now that’s one wild imagination to keep you on your toes to remember the grocery items you need. The funnier the story is, the higher chances of remembering each item clearly.
From that scenario alone, important objects on the location are observed. You associate the things you see with the location easily since it involves vision, sound, smell, taste, touch and Kinesthesia (or the awareness of body position). All of the strategic points mentioned make Journey System, another memory technique, an easier method in remembering things you need to remember and placing them in a known place for easier memorization – without any pressure.

 

Can Mind Games Help You Improve Your Intelligence?

 

Roadmap To Genius

There have been numerous debates about the different types of activities which are able of increasing the IQ. Many of them were thought to be useless, while others were labeled as highly efficient. About mind games, people have always had different opinions: their fans say that these games have made them see things much clearer and have offered them a simple and pleasant way of increasing their IQ, while those disliking these activities strongly affirm that there is no connection between mind games and improving the intelligence.

However, it seems like mind games fans are right: mind games do affect the brain in a positive way. In fact, everything that puts your brain to work steadily and gives it obstacles which it has to overcome has a positive influence upon the human brain. This is mainly because the more you put your brain to work, the more its capacity will increase. Thus, new challenges, such as finding different strategies to defeat your enemy in a chess game or planning your moves in advance in a computer strategy game, have the role of expanding your intelligence and increasing your IQ.

The most efficient mind games which can increase your intellectual abilities are Sudoku, crosswords and other similar word games, chess, computer strategy games, riddles and puzzles. These games are efficient because they force you to think differently and find more than one solution to a problem. This kind of approach will force your brain into working continuously, thus increasing its power of focus and its capacity of learning.

In order to make this type of brain training efficient, it is highly important that you do not cheat, but rather try out until you reach the correct result. Thus, even though the higher levels may be more difficult, you should try and solve them without using any hints. Only this way will your brain be able to work more, and thus increase its intelligence. Perseverance is the key of learning, but is also the key to an extended intellectual capacity, so do your best and remain focus even when things are not going well, because this is the time when your brain leans new things.

Exercise to Improve Your Mental Health

 

Nobody doubts the benefits of exercise for physical health.
What isn’t as widely known or discussed is how essential moderate exercise is to our mental well-being. I created an online survey which sought to find out what health strategies helped people who have experienced an episode of depression or anxiety to bounce back from setbacks. I took a holistic approach, and asked people to evaluate the effectiveness of strategies such as exercise, good rest, good nutrition, emotional support from family, friends, and support groups, fulfilling work, hobbies, charity work, as well as traditional approaches like psychological counseling and medication. In all, over 60 strategies were evaluated, and 4,080 respondents were asked to rate those they had tried. Exercise was in the top three.
Research shows that a 30-minute brisk walk (or equivalent) significantly improves your mood after 2, 4, 8, and 12 hours compared to those who don’t exercise (Mayo Clinic, 2008). Exercise also boosts energy, confidence, and sexual desirability (American Fitness, 19 (6), 32-36).
We can’t control the slings and arrows that come our way on a daily basis, but we can control our daily habits. Incorporating moderate exercise into our day can inoculate us from the prolonged effects of a setback.

Why Don’t People Exercise?

People usually give two main reasons for failing to exercise:
  • I don’t feel like it. (This is particularly applicable to people who are discouraged or depressed.)
  • I don’t have the time. (Our relentless 24/7 life usually means there are a thousand things to say “yes” to. An essential element of a thriving life is saying “no” to the trivial many, so that you can say “yes” to the vital few. Exercise is definitely in the latter category.)

Principles to Make Exercise Central to Your Life

Find something you enjoy. To sustain regular exercise, it is important to do something that you find pleasant. The traffic in gyms is 30 to 50 percent higher in January than other times of the year, as people are suddenly inspired to get fit and lose weight. By March, they have returned to normal levels. It’s not wise to sign up for a gym if you hate them!
I like walking because it allows me to get out in nature, it’s free, and you can do it anyplace and anytime. Some people keep a walking journal so that they can write down the new things they see, hear, and smell each day. This keeps you present. If you prefer swimming, dancing, cycling, boot camps, or hiring a personal trainer, then do that. To experience the mood enhancement qualities of exercise it is recommended to do 30 minutes, 6 days per week. Although people with depression often don’t feel like exercising, it is important to go against that inclination.
Have modest goals. Many people believe that to get the benefits of exercise you have to spend two hours in the gym or run a marathon. As highlighted above, this is simply not true. If you have been doing no exercise, start with 15 minutes per day. If you are catatonic and spending all day in bed, just getting out to the mailbox each day is a good start that you can build on. Build activity gradually.
Introduce rituals. Changing behavior requires more than intention. To make it stick, it is essential to introduce daily rituals that prompt the behavior. For example, rituals could include:
  • Laying out clothes each night when you go to bed so that when you wake up you can dress without thinking and get on with your day.
  • As you brush your teeth each morning, put on a pedometer. When you brush at night, take it off and record the steps taken.
  • Set a regular time to walk with a friend or work colleagues. Consider walking meetings.
  • Consider using a free smartphone app like FitnessPal, which allows you to monitor your exercise and your calorie consumption.
It’s never too late to start.
