Common Myths about Subliminal Technology
Are you wondering why subliminal technology hasn’t transformed your life yet? Subliminal messages have changed the lives of millions of individuals all over the world. But still, a lot of people remain suspicious or wary about the effectiveness or safety of subliminal technology. This is the same response some people have towards hypnosis and the law of attraction, which are all related concepts.
If you are disappointed with the results of subliminal products so far, then do check whether you are a victim of any of these common myths about it. Your knowledge about it might be misconstrued or your expectations may not be in line with the true workings of this revolutionary new technology. These could be the reasons why it won’t work the way you want it to or the way you think it should.
1. Subliminal messages can make me do things I don’t want to do. Many people are not willing to even try subliminal messages because they are afraid that the messages might influence them to do things they don’t want to do. They fear that they might lose control of their own lives and won’t know what they are doing anymore. Subliminal messages don’t work that way. They don’t plant actions and behavior in your system. Instead, they simply reinforce the thoughts that are already present in your mind. You get to choose which of these thoughts you want to strengthen. Subliminal messages can change you only if you also want to change. Thus, you are 100% conscious of what you’re doing and you remain in control. In fact, it places you more in control of yourself and of your life than ever.
2. I’ve never been exposed to subliminal messages before, so maybe it just won’t work on me. Subliminal messages can work on anyone, whether it’s your first time or not. But if you think you have never been exposed to subliminal messages, you’re wrong. All of us, at one point or another, have received these messages. We have been programmed by our past experiences, feedback from others, patterns we see in the world, and so on. We receive programming from everything we see, smell, taste, hear, and touch. We are constantly exposed to subliminal ads and TV commercials. All these are subliminally absorbed; we just don’t know it.
Using subliminal messages within your own control, therefore, is actually the only way you can protect yourself from subliminals that are beyond your control.
3. Subliminal messages will achieve the change I want after the first exposure. Most people do feel some difference spark up inside them at first exposure to subliminal messages. But such sparks are usually so minor, like a general uplifting of one’s mood. Subliminal messages are thus effective for immediate stress relief. However, if there is a big personality change you want to achieve, like you want to quit smoking or become an extrovert instead of an introvert, the messages need to be delivered on a constant or continuous basis and the effects will be felt in the long term.
4. Subliminal messages are illegal. Some countries do ban advertisements that are found to have subliminal messages in them, especially ones that are noticeable or have any mature or unethical content related to sex or violence. However, there is no law banning the use of subliminal messages for personal development.
