The Secret Behind Subliminal Messages


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.

Stop Drinking and Smoking If You Want to Improve Your IQ


The human body is a complex machine and each of its parts plays a very important part in its good function. Thus, it is quite hard to imagine how a human would have dealt without one or the other parts of its body. However, a capital importance in the body’s good function has its brain. Even the most banal activities, such as walking or seeing are controlled by it. Due to its extreme importance, it is necessary to maintain the brain in good shape and make sure that nothing will prevent it from working normally.

Most people even try to accelerate the speed with which their brain accumulates information and makes connections. Even though increasing your intelligence is not an easy process, but rather requires long time attention and a very well thought schedule, it does not mean that ordinary people are not able to improve their intelligence. In fact, the brain will start working much better once all those factors which influence it in a negative manner are eliminated.

Among the factors which negatively affect the brain we can enumerate the lack of proper sleep, stress, smoking and drinking. These last two factors are by far the most damaging to the human body in general, and to the brain especially. Smoking decreases the amount of oxygen from inside your body, thus also diminishing the amount of oxygen which goes to the brain. Low oxygen results in improper function of the brain, thus less intellectual capacity. Even though on short run, people may notice a certain improvement in their intellectual abilities while smoking, on the long run, the effects of smoking are quite damaging. A non-smoker has more chances to increase their IQ easy and fast than a person who ingests daily tobacco smoke.

On the other hand, drinking has serious effects on the structure of the nervous cells by destructing their connections. This damage can be temporary or permanent, depending on the quantity of alcohol ingested and the period of time in which one has drank on a regular basis. When one stops drinking and smoking, the brain starts to recover gradually and thus starts working better, allowing more information to be assimilated in a shorter period of time.

Thus, if you want to improve your mental abilities and increase your IQ significantly, you should start by giving up your negative habits of drinking and smoking. You will not also think more and better, but you will increase the quality of your life.
