SUBLIMINAL MESSAGE PROGRAM MYTHS (this opens a new web page)
Using DSPP Programs
The most effective way to use a DSPP program is
to simply relax, watch it, and let your subconscious mind do all the work.
It's really that simple! Below are some common
questions we have received and our recommendations:
How long will it take for me to see results from one of your subliminal software programs?
This varies with each individual. The subliminal message DSPP process is entirely natural and works with your subconscious mind to achieve meaningful and lasting change. No one can predict how long that will take because everybody is different. Some customers report immediate results, while for others, it takes longer. But usually within three to six months, they notice changes for the better.
Think of it this way. You plant a seed and water the ground. The flower usually doesn't appear overnight, but in time and with the season, the flower grows and blooms. So it is with the DSPP programs. They plant the seeds of change in your subconscious mind. You water them with your desire for meaningful change and continued use of the programs, and in time, you get results.
Do I have to read the Subliminal Messages Review Screen every time I run a "program session"?
Every DSPP program contains a Subliminal Messages Review Screen that shows you consciously what each subliminal message says. We provide this as your assurance of quality and so you know exactly what messages your subconscious mind will receive subliminally during a program session. These are very specially written messages, geared for the way the subconscious mind processes information. You do NOT have to read them every time you run a DSPP program unless you want to. They can then act as an added boost, being conscious affirmations. If you do NOT read them it doesn't matter because your eyes will see them and your subconscious mind will; accept them when they are sent to you during the subliminal message session. For this to work, you have to look at the screen, but DO NOT TRY to read the messages when they flash in front of your eyes. Just let your eyes SEE them, then the work is done.
Do I HAVE to watch a DSPP program session for the full 15 minutes in the session timer?
The 15 minute timer is designed for the average tolerable attention span of the average user. Some people get "antsy" and want to end the program earlier. You can do this by clicking on the gold EXIT button. However, you will not receive all the possible repetitions of the subliminal messages. If you exit the program before the timed 15 minutes, you will get shorter exposure to the subliminal messages, so the effect will not be as great. But you can always run another session later on so that cumulatively, you still build up the subliminal messages in your subconscious mind. The idea is to get as many messages repeated as many times as possible so your subconscious mind retains them and acts on them for your benefit.
During the day when I am using the Activator Phrase™,
after I say or read it etc., should I be having to consciously recall or visualize
the subliminal message affirmations to achieve the effect or should that happen subconsciously,
without my effort?
There is no need to do anything but recall the Activator
Phrase™ and then continue with what you were doing before you recalled
Phrase™. The key here is not to apply effort, but to let go
and allow your subconscious mind to do what it needs to do. You don't have
any more than you have to "micro manage" breathing. It's automatic.
So it is enough simply to say the Activator Phrase™ (or
think it or write it) and then let go and let the mind do what it knows how
to do. You may not "feel" anything when you use your Activator Phrase™,
but your subconscious thoughts and behavior will automatically shift. Sometimes,
you'll pick up on it, sometimes, it is so subtle you won't notice.
While watching a DSPP program should I recall, say
my Activator Phrase™ while the subliminal messages are running? Would
that conflict with the process?
It makes no difference. The Activator Phrase™ can't "activate" what
is already in process. It's like launching a computer application. You can't "start
it" if it is running because it IS running. So trying to start it again will
have no effect. It won't crash it, it won't make it run twice as fast. Using
the Activator Phrase™ during a viewing of the DSPP program doesn't
matter. Ignoring it doesn't matter either because it is embedded into the
program, so you get it no matter what.
When using the Activator Phrase™ is it important
to say EXACTLY what the program tells me, or can I use it in a sentence or
even a little song I make up?
The Activator Phrase™ can be used in a sentence
or song. The fact that there are more words around it doesn't diminish its
effect. As long as the phrase is somewhere in the sentence or song it will
have the desired effect. Your subconscious mind will recognize it and respond.
I have more than one DSPP program. Is it okay to
use more than one Activator Phrase™ or would that create a conflict?
The Activator Phrases™ and their program affirmations
are different for each DSPP program topic (i.e. Self-Esteem and Healthy Weight).
As such, they don't conflict. The affirmations have already been recorded
by your subconscious mind, so using different Activator Phrases™ to
recall them at any time is simply calling up memories of the affirmations,
and people remember many things many times a day.
Your subconscious mind will decide how to deal with this
if you go overboard or do it excessively. If it does become a problem, your
subconscious mind will tell you to stop it by either making you forget about
it, or sending you feelings that you know will mean "Enough already,
give me a chance, one thing at a time!"
However, if situations arise where you need more than
one Activator Phrase™, your subconscious mind will know and cooperate
for your best good.
When I say or visualize an Activator Phrase™… do
I say it and PAUSE for a few seconds or can I say it over and over without
pausing? (Does it require time for the subconscious to do "its thing").
Your subconscious mind will process the Activator Phrase™ as
necessary. The first use of the Activator Phrase™ will initiate the
program affirmations in memory. Repeating this rapidly will not really do
much. It's like trying to start a computer application that is already running.
You can't start it on top of itself, for obvious reasons.
Does it work better if I say or recall an Activator
Phrase™with enthusiasm and does it work much better if I say it out
load with emphasis.
It makes no difference. You may feel great shouting your
Activator Phrase™, or you may want to just think it to yourself, or
scribble it down on a piece of paper and read it. What matters is the phrase
and the activation, not how you deliver it to yourself.
If you bang out your password on a computer, punching
each key as hard as you can and shouting it out, or typing the keys with
the very lightest touch, it makes no difference. A password is a password.
However, if you shout it out loud, you might be giving away a secret! Again,
common sense is your guide.
Should I watch my DSPP subliminal software program(s) if I am in a bad
mood or under stress?
Sure. Often, they can really help in these situations,
even turning a mood around or helping you relieve your own stress.
Should I be consciously trying to stop my thoughts
from rambling to bad thoughts, stressful thoughts while viewing? (I find
this happens at times).
Allow any thoughts to come and go as they will. This
is a natural part of the "clean out" process that shows the program
is working and your subconscious mind is getting rid of or moving "junk
stuff" to a place where it can be recycled or disassembled into other
things, taking it away from where it used to be and putting it where it can
no longer harm you. Your subconscious mind knows how to do this, you don't
have to tell it what to do.
Be like a flowing river. Sometimes a log will float by,
sometimes some leaves, sometimes some garbage. Just let it float on by. If
you try to stop it, you'll create a dam and stop the flow.
The thoughts are coming up because the program is working
and your subconscious mind is "cleaning house." The positive subliminal messages
are dislodging your old pattern "bad thoughts". They fall into
the "river of thought" and float out to the great "sea of
experience" where they will sink or erode. By this means, your powerful
subconscious mind is making room for the positive program affirmations to
have better positioning. It means your subconscious mind LIKES these new thoughts
and wants them to be foremost in your thoughts.
Sometimes my mind starts replaying a song, jingle
(or thoughts) I have been listening to/thinking in the prior days. Should
I be concerned?
This is the effect of Theta brain wave stimulation and
is perfectly normal, in fact, it is one of the benefits of the program. It
means your creative centers of your subconscious mind have gone into higher
gear and your mind is playing with the building blocks of ideas or already
working on some solutions. You are consciously aware of this flow. Treat
this like the river mentioned above. Just let it flow on through.
Should I be consciously using a technique to try
to think about something or try to BLANK out my mind while watching a DSPP
It's really easy, the point is, you don't have to think,
you don't make any conscious effort other than to stare at the computer screen.
Just watch the screen animation and allow everything else to happen. Wandering
thoughts are the natural part of your mind at work while watching the program,
you don't want to force them out. Just watch the animation and let your mind
do its job. Your subconscious mind is responding to the positive subliminal
I have several DSPP programs. Is it a good idea to
watch more than one DSPP program at a time or alternate between them and
how much time should I watch each one when alternating between different
Your computer can only display one DSPP program at a
time and it will run in full screen mode, so you can't run two DSPP programs
at the same time-- the computer won't do it. You have to exit one program
and then start another.
As a general rule, it is a good idea to focus on one
program for a day or two, then focus on another. While you can run one program,
then launch another immediately afterwards, it won't increase any effects.
Be kind to yourself and your subconscious mind. Give it something to think
about and then give it the time to think about it, rather than overloading
it with too much to consider.
How would you feel if your boss came to you and dumped
a job on your desk, then 15 minutes later came and dumped another one on
your desk and kept doing that? You'd feel pretty overwhelmed. You don't want
to do this to yourself, you want to be kind to yourself and allow your mind
to "digest" the affirmations of one program before jumping into
What is the maximum number of days should we watch
a program before taking a break and how long of a break between any program?
This is up to you. Some people watch a DSPP program for
five days and then take a break, and then go back a week later, others watch
it only once and then wonder why nothing is happening, and others watch it
every single day. It's your own preference. You can't be wrong. There are
Of course, if you only watch a DSPP program once, you're
not going to get much help. That's like doing one push-up to exercise and
lose weight and expecting to lose all excess weight after that one push-up.
Should I continue to watch my DSPP program if I feel
that it is not working?
Yes! Although many people feel a sense of excitement
and exhilaration when using a DSPP program for the first time or two, they
sometimes are surprised that this feeling doesn't always happen, so they
"feel" the program isn't working.
You need to give the DSPP program and your subconscious
mind time to work, even if you don't "feel" like
there is any effect. The reasons are simple: you may have unreasonable
expectations, you may not be allowing yourself enough time to get the benefits,
or you may be resisting the results you are trying to get, working against
If you put bread in a toaster, and you don't smell anything
cooking, you might trip the toaster to check on it, "Is it toast yet?" Then
you start the toaster again, and pop it up again and so on. That method means
it will take a long time to make toast! On the other hand, if you put the
bread in the toaster and leave it alone to do its job and go about your business
doing other things, you'll eventually hear the toaster "pop" and
then you have nice golden brown toast with no anxiety and effort at all.
A little common sense goes a long way.
What you feel can often be a matter of interpretation,
so you should also be very self observant on all levels, not just "feelings".
While you may not "feel" an effect, you may be expecting something that isn't
what the DSPP program does. It won't get you high like a drug. DSPP programs
use natural processes and these are very subtle.
Having good Self-Esteem doesn't "feel" like anything.
If you are using the Self-Esteem DSPP program and something comes
along to erode your Self-Esteem (like an insult or criticism), your Self-Esteem
remains much stronger and there is less feeling bad about yourself, whereas
prior to using the DSPP program, you might be crushed and beat yourself up.
Your goal is your overall life change. You may find
you are behaving in a manner that is consistent with the goals of your DSPP
program and you aren't even realizing it because it has become so naturally
integrated into your life.
Think of it like feeling healthy. When you feel healthy,
you don't "feel" anything. Everything simply feels normal. You never realize
how much you take that for granted until you get a cold and then feel unhealthy
for a time.
You never "feel" your hair or fingernails grow,
but that doesn't mean they don't. So be careful of expecting "feelings" that
just aren't going to happen. It would be much better to observe your behavior
and responses to situations and how they have changed since using a DSPP
program. This is their goal, not a "rush".
DSPP Program FAQs
Do I need to wear my reading glasses when viewing
Yes. If you normally use reading glasses to see the computer
monitor contents clearly, you need to use your glasses.
Can I use your programs if I am taking pills or am
on a health plan for my situation?
Yes. The programs are designed to help you manage your
behavior. They are compatible with the goals of all beneficial health systems,
including doctors' care. If you are under care for a severe medical problem,
please consult with your doctor(s) about the programs. They can be very beneficial
in such situations. If you are in a special behavioral modification group,
consult with the group moderator about the programs. Others in your group
may find them very helpful.
Which brain waves do your programs stimulate?
The programs take you "down" the brain wave
path. When you start the program, you read the subliminal messages that will
be displayed. At this point your are in beta state (beta brain waves) because
you are consciously reading the material. You then read the short instructions,
which advise you to look at the screen when your program is in Session (running
the subliminal messages) and to breathe deeply and relax. To aid with that, we incorporated
an auto stop feature so you do not have to think about when to stop a Session.
The program manages this for you. When you breathe deeply and relax, you
shift to alpha state (alpha brain waves). As you continue your session, breathing
deeply and relaxing, your mind may tend to wander and you may feel drowsy.
This is an indication of theta state (theta brain waves.) If you fall asleep,
you may enter delta state, and obviously, since your eyes are closed, you
will not receive the subliminal messages. But you may need the rest!
Will the brain waves you mention generate every time
I use a program, even if I have used it for a while?
The brain wave state depends very much on your use of
the program. If you are watching it but can hear conversations or a TV program,
you may not experience all the brain wave states mentioned due to distractions
that call your attention. For this reason, you should watch the program alone
and in a quiet room if you want to travel down the brain wave road, so to
speak. If you are playing music in the background, it can interfere with
entering alpha or theta state because your mind may follow the tune. This
is why we do not include a sound track in the programs. Obviously, if the
phone rings or you are interrupted, you will go to beta state to deal with
it. However, as long as you are watching the screen, you will subliminally
receive the messages. The level of effectiveness is different depending on
which brain state you are in. Regardless, they are still effective. If you
are used to using the program, you may have a tendency to go more to the
theta state and let your mind wander while you watch the program. Since people
tend to generate ideas and get inspiration in the theta state, this is beneficial.
I have a terrible time relaxing, I just can't seem
to do it. Will your programs be effective for me?
Yes. There are great benefits from relaxation, but there
are times when we are simply "on edge" or "antsy". In
these cases, we tend to stay in beta state as we run problems or thoughts
over and over in our minds. Of course you can still run our programs and
get the subliminal benefit from them. Alpha and theta brain waves add to
their effectiveness but are not absolutely required. We experience subliminal
perception in the beta state all the time quite naturally. If it is just
impossible for you to stay with the program for a full session, you can close
or exit the program early. However, you will need to run the program more
often to get as many repetitions of the subliminal affirmations.
Computer Performance Issues:
The DSPP performance requires them subliminal software to run at the
programmed speed. We have tested them on many machines (MAC and WIN) and
found no problems. However, depending on how your machine works (how many
processes are running in the background) you may experience slow or choppy
performance. Here are some tips to get your DSPP subliminal software "up to speed".
I downloaded the MAC version of a DSPP program, but
it runs very slowly and is choppy. What's wrong?
Most MACs (especially those running OSX) have no problems
running the DSPP programs. However, older G4's running System 9.x, may have
difficulty running the DSPP programs at full speed if another program is
running in the background or if a modem script is in use. If this is the
case, shut off the modem script (what you normally use to get connected the
Internet-- this is different from your browser) and close all other applications
while the DSPP program is running. Some Internet service providers require
you to have your modem script running continuously. If that is the case,
contact your provider to learn how to temporarily disable the modem script.
I downloaded the WIN version of a DSPP program, but
it runs very slowly and is choppy. What's wrong?
Windows machines generally do not have problems with
running the DSPP programs. However, some Windows machines run automatic processes
in the background (virus updaters, backup programs and so on). If the DSPP
is running slowly or is choppy, another resource may be using the computer.
Look in the START bar and the Task Manager for any programs that may be running.
Many programs do an automatic update, or have schedules for scanning the
computer (i.e. virus protection). This could be conflicting with the DSPP
program. Another issue is the Windows Registry can
get clogged with junk. Windows is not always very good at cleaning up the
registry. There are commercial registry managers available all over the Internet.
Also, see the above MAC tip about some modem scripts. This can affect
some Windows machines as well.
I clicked on the link to ClydeSight.com while my
DSPP program was running and nothing happened/my browser opened but nothing
happened/it opened a blank page, etc. What's wrong?
The DSPP program will CALL to the browser when you click
on a link. However, not all browsers know how to respond. Also, depending
on your Internet set-up, your browser may not be able to automatically connect
to the Internet. The DSPP programs have been tested and work with Firefox
and MSIE on Windows as long as they can automatically make a connection to
the Internet. IN MAC OSX, the Firefox browser connects to the Internet and
then displays a blank page. Safari and MSIE on OSX do not have this problem.
End of Computer Performance
Why does Internet Explorer give me a Security Warning
when I download any of your programs?
This is a security precaution built into that browser.
It is simply an alert to let you know that you are downloading an executable
file. MSIE contains this warning to help you have a safe computing experience.
Our DSPP programs are completely virus free and safe and they do not write
anything to your hard drive. MSIE has no way of knowing this-- all it sees
is the .exe extension and decides this is a potential risk, so it advises
you to be careful.
Why do I get the Security Warning that you are an "Unknown
Publisher" and are not verified by Microsoft?
Microsoft has a method of verifying software publishers
to help their customers. FLASH Projectors are not usually registered or verified
with Microsoft. FLASH projectors are safe, they allow you to run your program
from your desktop on both Windows and MAC machines without needing a plug-in
or browser. They do not need to be verified by Microsoft.
Do I have to be on the Internet to use the programs?
No. Once you have downloaded a program it runs from your
if you have an open connection to the Internet while a program is running,
it can take you directly to the ClydeSight Productions Web site. We add more
programs to the DSPP list, so you can see if we have something you might
I clicked on the link to www.clydesight.com in one
of my DSPP programs and my browser opened but gave me an error message that
the page could not be found. What happened?
The programs are designed to link to the ClydeSight Productions
Web site. They call to the browser, but if your browser uses a dial up modem
or is not allowed to automatically connect to the Internet, you'll get this
error. One fix is to use your modem as you normally would and get connected
to any page on the Internet. (This may cause your DSPP program to run slowly
or choppy on some computer systems, See the above advisory.)
As long as your browser is connected to the Internet, when you click on the
link in any DSPP program, it can call to the page and retrieve it. Your Digital
Subliminal Perception Program will continue to run in the background while
you are browsing, but of course, you won't see it, so you won't receive and
subliminal messages during your browsing time. To go back to the program,
just minimize the browser window or click on the Digital Subliminal Perception
Program window to bring it to the front of the desktop.
Do I have to go to the ClydeSight Productions Web
site to use my DSPP program?
No. Once you have downloaded a program it runs from your
computer. The link to ClydeSight Productions is provided as a convenience
so you can keep up to date with what we have to offer or to make purchases
of other products.
Do your Digital Subliminal Perception programs send
text or image subliminal messages?
Our programs send text messages in the form of affirmations.
Affirmations have been shown to be highly effective in motivational self-help
Do I need to wear my contact lenses when viewing
Yes. If you normally use contacts to see the computer
monitor contents clearly, you need to use your contact lenses. However, if
you also use glasses as an alternative to contact lenses, you could use your
glasses. The point is that you need to see the monitor clearly and be able
to physically read the instruction text. If you can see and read that, everything
will work just fine.
What is the animation I see on the Digital Subliminal
This is the mask or carrier that focuses your visual
attention on the screen. It is not an entertainment, it is specifically designed
to subconsciously focus your vision. The subliminal perception messages are
superimposed on it or around it at various times during a session. It is
the part of the program that stimulates alpha and theta brain wave generation.
I sometimes see a "blip" of a message,
and can even make out some of the words that appear. Is this effective?
Yes. For visual subliminal perception to work, you have
to actually see (perceive) something, so of course you will "see" the
message. However, the text message is timed so fast that you cannot consciously
fully read it. Your subconscious mind is much faster and understands the content
of the affirmation. This is highly effective in replacing negative and self-defeating
Do all the messages appear during a session, and
do they follow the order I see them displayed in the Subliminal Message Review Screen?
The subliminal messages display many hundred
times during a session -- in random order-- which is different every time
you activate a session. All the messages are displayed many times and all
repeat throughout the session, some in succession, some spread out.
How many times are the messages displayed during
This depends on the length of time you run a session.
In a 15 minute session, the program will send several hundred message displays
at intervals that have been shown to be effective in scientific research.
Can I overdose on the program, use it too much?
No. You are receiving positive and beneficial affirming
messages. However, the best approach is to use the program as suggested,
for 15 minutes once or twice a day, every day. This exposure has been found
to be most effective and timely. Your subconscious mind will automatically
regulate your behavioral change based on a number of factors which are highly
individual to your life experience.
How will I know when I can stop using the Subliminal
Perception Program as a regimen or daily routine, etc.?
Eventually, your subconscious mind will decide that the
messages and their affirming power are no longer needed because they are
now in place in your life. You will then automatically forget or lose interest
in using the program. This will be accompanied by very strong feelings of
confidence and accomplishment. You'll just "know" and stop using
the program. If circumstances change and you find you need it again, you
will automatically remember the program and start using it again. Your subconscious
mind manages this for you quite naturally.
Brain Wave FAQs:
What are brain waves?
Different mental and physical activities cause the brain to generate electrical waves which can be detected by special sensors and an EEG machine. The waves change frequency depending on the amount and type of activity going on in the brain. Like the ocean, brain waves are stimulated by environmental factors and constantly change. Often brain waves are referred to brain states.
How many brain waves are there?
There are four basic types of brain waves. They are:
Beta - Conscious and subconscious active thinking. Normal day to day activities, such as reading a book, shopping, watching TV stimulate beta brain waves. Right now, your brain is generating beta brain waves because you are both consciously and subconsciously reading and processing and making decisions about the words on this Web page.
Alpha - Relaxation,
trance, meditative trance, hypnotic trance. When we relax our brains generate
alpha waves. Hypnotists and psychotherapists often help their clients enter
the alpha state. You can do this right now by yourself. Just close your eyes,
take slow deep breaths and think to yourself "relax". Do not mentally chase any wandering thoughts, but try to make your mind go blank. Think of nothing, mentally see nothing and continue to breathe slowly and deeply, going into a relaxed state. When you achieve that state, your brain will be generating alpha waves.
Theta - Daydreaming, fantasy, imagination, ideas, inspirational thinking. Have you ever "zoned out", gone for a mental trip while fully awake? Sometimes we call this "not paying attention". When you enter this type of mental activity, your brain generates theta waves. It is believed that when the brain is generating theta waves, the mind is drawing on inspiration, imagination and ideas. Theta wave generation can be stimulated by a number of activities and sources. If you sit by a running brook and stare at the water, the sounds and sight can help you make your mind wander, go into Theta state. If you drive for a long while on a straight road, you can go into Theta state. The activity of driving is automatic because of the sameness, so the mind "wanders". You can even stare at a vinyl record going round and round and enter Theta state. You can make a pendulum and go into Theta state. Tie a length of thread to a button or similar object. Hold the string and sit with your elbow resting on a table or desk. Gently swing the pendulum from side to side while staring at it. Just watch the pendulum. As you watch the pendulum, your brain will go into alpha state and then theta state.
Delta - Deep, dreamless sleep. We dream when we sleep, but we are not continuously dreaming. We dream in "spurts" (REM- Rapid Eye Movement is an indicator of the dream state). When we are asleep and not dreaming, the brain generates delta waves. When we dream, the waves change as we respond to the mental imagery our minds conjure up.
How are brain waves connected to subliminal perception programs?
Brainwave stimulating subliminal perception programs or exercises use the brain waves or brain state to enhance effectiveness.
If you are in beta state, subliminal perception does occur, but there is a lot of activity going on in your mind, so subliminal suggestions can get lost in all the confusion. In beta state, the brain is very busy managing many different tasks, and the subconscious mind is actively engaged with the conscious mind. The mind can only process so much information at a time.
If you are in alpha or theta state, the subliminal messages get through to the subconscious mind with little or no interference from the conscious mind. Sensory perception occurs but the conscious mind doesn't process the information, it has basically "stepped aside" or is "on hold". This creates a more direct pathway to the subconscious mind which accepts the subliminal messages contained within the perception. Stimulating theta and alpha brain waves increases subliminal message effectiveness.
Are the mind and the brain the same thing?
No. The brain is an electro-chemical organ of the body and is a tangible, physical thing, subject to the physical laws of nature. The mind is an intangible phenomenon that is interconnected with brain activity. They work together.
Think of it this way. Your computer is a box full of electronics. They are subject to physical laws and run on electricity. The computer programs you use are intangible, they don't actually exist. They influence the computer to do certain things, i.e. a word processor shows words on the screen, spell checks, formats paragraphs and so on. A computer by itself cannot perform word processing functions, it needs the program. A computer can't do anything without a program, and a program can't do anything without a computer. If the computer has a memory problem, or the hard drive is full, etc., this can influence the effectiveness of a computer program (crash!). A corrupt program can erase a hard drive (bad news!). Conversely, a helper or maintenance program can improve the computer's performance by getting rid of useless junk, bringing the machine back to the state it was in when it was new by cleaning out the hard drive, rearranging data and so on. There is an interconnection between the tangible and the intangible.
In a similar way, the mind and the brain are interconnected and influence each other. The mind is influenced by various brain activities and stimulation and vice versa. Intoxication results from a chemical alteration in the brain which then influences the way the mind works. The mind can actively engage in meditation which influences the brain to enter a alpha brain waves state, lower heartbeat and respiration.
Do I need special equipment to generate brain waves?
No. The brain does this naturally in response to the environment. There are special products available to help you deliberately stimulate brain wave activity. They are helping you focus on doing this rather than your letting it happen spontaneously. At times, this can be very beneficial. However, there are MANY methods for stimulating brain wave activity on different levels, as explained above.
What is Subliminal Perception?
Subliminal perception is information and experiences we receive which we consciously ignore or do not fully consciously perceive. For example, when we see something "from the corner of our eye" (peripheral vision), that is a type of subliminal perception. When a car drives down the street, we "see" the license plate but do not register it consciously. It is recorded in the subconscious. This is subliminal perception. Scientific studies have verified that subliminal perception is a naturally occurring process.
What is Subliminal Persuasion?
Subliminal persuasion is information we receive unsolicited and unexpected (such as an ad embedded in one frame of a movie) that is passed through the conscious to the subconscious mind without our consciously making a decision about the content. The idea is that this will "persuade" viewers to respond (i.e. "Buy Popcorn"). What makes it persuasion is that it was not expected nor asked for by the viewers. They came to see a movie with all frames part of the story. They may have seen ads for popcorn before the movie began-- that is expected, it is advertising. But an ad so carefully hidden within the movie itself is not expected, nor solicited. Another example are hidden words in print ads. These are unexpected, and may spell messages such as "Buy Now" or "Sex", although the product may have nothing to do directly with sex. Finding the words consciously can be a real chore, and there is skepticism that something so difficult to consciously perceive, even when that is desired, may be too vague to have any effect on readers. Scientific studies do not find significant support for some advertising claims that such "embedded messages" used in subliminal persuasion in commercials or print ads have any effect on a purchase decision. However, the subject is much debated and research is ongoing.
What is Supraliminal Perception?
Supraliminal perception is information we receive and process with both our conscious and subconscious mind. When we pass a newsstand and a headline "catches our eye" and we stop to read it further, this is supraliminal perception. Most information and experience is supraliminal in nature.
What is a Subliminal Perception Program?
A subliminal perception program is a commercially manufactured audio, video or computer program usually designed for self-help motivational behavioral modification. Many programs are offered on audio tape (auditory subliminal perception program) as well as some on video tape and computer applications (visual subliminal perception program). Quality varies and scientific studies have found that with proper use, these types of programs can be highly effective. Some subliminal perception programs are erroneously referred to as subliminal persuasion programs. Science differentiates between them (see above).
What is Visual Subliminal Perception?
Visual subliminal perception is information we receive visually which we consciously ignore or do not fully consciously perceive but which we do perceive and process subconsciously. The phone number printed on the side of a taxi cab is an example. As the cab drives by, you see the number, but you do not consciously process it (especially if the cab is speeding!). subconsciously, the information is recorded into memory. Later on, if you have seen the phone number enough times, you may "magically" remember it when dialing the phone to call a cab. But there is no magic in it. You DID perceive the phone number, consciously you just didn't "pay attention" to it. subconsciously, you did. This is a perfectly natural experience and happens all the time. It is not a trick by the cab company, it is simple advertising. In our modern world, we are inundated with such information, much of which we "tune out". The information is not deliberately subliminal in nature, it is part of our environment.
What is Auditory Subliminal Perception?
Auditory subliminal perception is information we receive
aurally which we consciously ignore or do not fully consciously perceive
but which we do perceive and process subconsciously. Bird and nature sounds
are an example. We hear them, but do not consciously process the sound. subconsciously,
the information is recorded into memory. A "Jingle" is an example
of this process. You may hear a catchy tune or jingle on the radio once or
twice, or while driving the car or while in a conversation when a radio is
playing in the background. Consciously, you pay no attention to it. subconsciously,
you remember it, as you do all experience. Later on, someone may start singing
the jingle, and you chime right in and finish it, usually you both laugh.
Jingles can be fun. This is aural subliminal perception, but it is not persuasion
because it is part of our environment that we have come to expect and accept.
How many scientific studies have been done on Subliminal Perception?
Subliminal and supraliminal perception have received extensive scientific study since the 19th century. In the mid to late 20th century many scientific studies have been done on subliminal persuasion as well. The studies of subliminal perception effectiveness number in the thousands. Some studies have found statistical evidence of the effectiveness of various subliminal techniques, and some have not. The subject is quite complex and more studies are being conducted in this fascinating area.
How accurate are claims of Subliminal Message Software effectiveness?
Overall, subliminal perception programs can have high effectiveness under the right conditions with the right subjects. If the technique is properly self administered by a customer (i.e. used as recommended) for the purpose of motivation and behavioral modification, it can have a very positive effect. Everyone is different and their use of these programs varies, so results vary.
In a Visual Subliminal Perception program, should I be able to see the messages or subliminal images?
For an image or text to be perceived, it must register on the retina of the eye. So no matter what, you will see subliminal messages or images in any properly engineered visual subliminal perception program. However, there will not be time to consciously read the content or consider what you have seen. When that happens, the subconscious mind automatically absorbs the information. That is the goal.
What is subliminal "masking", why is it important?
Masking is a method to help reduce (distract) the conscious focus on a subliminal message or image and to keep subject interest and focus on the program or session. In subliminal perception audio tapes, masking is done with sounds-- music or natural sounds such as ocean waves, etc. In visual subliminal perception, masking is done with still, slowly moving images or even movies or cartoons that focus the eye.
Can a visual subliminal program MAKE me do anything, especially something against my will?
No. Just as with hypnosis, people cannot be forced or "tricked" by subliminal techniques into doing something that goes against their nature, to include morality, ethics and social behavior, or to do something dangerous.
If I view a visual subliminal message, program, or image about something I don't want, will it affect me?
No. You lack the motivation to act on the subliminal perception. Effectiveness of a visual subliminal perception program depends on the context in which it is used and your desire to use it to your benefit.
