Subliminal Power Software Review
Unleash Your Mind
Throughout our lives, our minds are bombarded with messages. Everywhere we turn, we see signs and banners, books and magazines, and hundreds of sights and sounds we are so used to, we don't even notice them anymore. We receive these messages through our interactions with other people, the videos we watch or even things we overhear in passing.
Far too often, these messages aren't very positive. All around us, we are blasted with images and phrases telling us we're too fat, too skinny, too tall, too short, not smart enough, not good enough, not creative enough - unless we buy the right products, of course!
With all these negative images surrounding us, what if we could reprogram our minds with the positive messages we choose? Well, that is exactly what you can do with subliminal software. I recently purchased some software, and here is a review of my experiences with it so far.
What is subliminal messaging?
How does it work?
First things first. What exactly is subliminal messaging?
Subliminal messaging first was explored in the mid-1800s, but didn't really take off until the late 1950's. Researchers had discovered that, by flashing messages in front of people so quickly, they didn't even notice them there, they apparently could influence people's choices, desires and behaviour. Though the messages flashed so briefly, their subconscious minds were still capable of processing them, and ideas could be thus implanted. The first such messages were controversially used to convince theatre goers to buy pop or snacks.
Though people objected to advertisers using subliminal messaging on them without their permission, many began to use the principles of subliminal messaging themselves, where they were in control. We've learned that the subconscious mind is very powerful, but it cannot tell the difference between an actual experience or a reimagining of one. Athletes and performers took advantage of this by using visualization to enhance their training and practise. Others tried placing written messages in prominent places, where they would be seen frequently throughout the day. It was hoped that continuous exposure to these messages would bring about desired results.
The use of subliminal software simplifies the process, increasing the amount of control we have over the messages we receive, while getting other work done on our computers. It works as a type of hypnosis, bypassing our conscious, logical minds, which can often filter information out, and directly accessing our more flexible, emotional subconscious - but without having to go into a hypnotic trance.
Does it work? Well, that depends on what you expect of it, and how it's done. Let's explore that for a bit.
Where are subliminal messages used?
What types of messages are sent?
Messages used for subliminal suggestions have to be short, clear and concise to be effective. They can be images, words or sounds. Subliminal images in advertising often involve objects photographed in such a way that they imply something else entirely. This can be done by the positioning of people or objects, or through hidden shapes, etc. Music can have messages subtly hidden in it, and text versions need only flash quickly before the eyes. These messages might make us think about how hot we feel, and wouldn't that cold drink make us feel better? They might tell us that we are hungry, and start craving a certain food, or that we are tired and need a pick me up.
On a more positive note, subliminal messages can tell us that we feel good about ourselves, and that we are smart or creative. The possibilities are many.
Why use subliminal messaging?
At this point, you might be wondering why anyone would use subliminal messaging at all. After all, doesn't that mean we're deliberately messing with our own heads?
There are a lot of reasons people might want to use subliminal messaging, and rewiring their own brains is one of them! Here are a few examples of things people might choose to use subliminal messaging to help.
Smoking cessation: It can be hard to quit smoking, and if someone is in the habit of smoking throughout the day, the cravings can become a problem. Sometimes, the craving is for the act of smoking as much as the nicotine itself! Having brief, encouraging messages sent to their subconscious while they are working at their desks can help a person control those cravings and resist temptation.
Weight loss/diet changes: This is a popular reason. Subliminal messages can be used to break bad eating habits, reduce cravings and encourage people to improve their eating habits. This can be particularly useful for people who find they have to cut out certain foods from their diet for medical reasons, such as when someone discovers they are gluten intolerant, or discover they have an allergy to a common food. It can help reduce cravings for foods that may have been favourites, but they can no longer eat.
Overcoming past negative programming: One thing to remember is that our minds are constantly being bombarded with external messages, and this has been going on our entire lives. For some of us, past experiences or influences have programmed us to believe we are failures, or that we'll never be good enough, or that we don't deserve success. Positive subliminal messages can help people overcome these negative ones that their past has already programmed into their minds. It can be a way to fight against the negative self-talk many of us have developed over the years.
Goal setting: One of the things that is notable about people who are successful in their fields is goal setting. As the saying goes, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail!" Just the act of writing down goals has a significant subconsious effect on us. With subliminal messaging, people can write out brief encouraging statements that remind them of their goals and encourage them to act on those goals, while they are doing other things.
Self improvement: Subliminal messages can also be used to simply send positive messages to ourselves that encourage us to improve our lives, our relationships, overcome fears and increase our creativity.
These are just a few areas where people have found using subliminal message has helped.
When NOT to use subliminal messaging.
People who are prone to epileptic seizures should avoid using subliminal messaging that flashes text or images before their eyes.
Also, subliminal messaging should NEVER be used in place of real medical treatment or therapies.
Subliminal Power Software - The software I am trying out!
The software I chose is called Subliminal Power. The cost is reasonable, it's easy to install, and has a number of messages ready to use, organized in categories. If you click on any of the category titles, then click "edit," you will be able to see what the actual messages are in that category. Some have just a few messages, others have a dozen or more. All the messages are a single, short sentence.
This software also allows you to control where the messages will display, font size and duration. You can even select music to listen to at the same time. The music choices are all instrumentals, with no lyrics to distract from the messages that will flash on your screen.
Best of all, you can create your own custom messages. Choose "new", type your messages in the text box, name and save your custom list, click "ok" and you're ready to go!
Here are a few examples of effective subliminal messages. Remember to keep the messages short and clear. It's also important to phrase your messages in a positive manner. For example, instead of saying "I don't feel stressed," say "I am free of stress." Our minds prefer to latch on to "yes" phrases rather then "no" versions, even when they are saying essentially the same thing.
- I control my future!
- I have an excellent memory.
- I will make $5000 a month by the end of this year.
- I am a worthy person.
- I will find a job that I love.
- I enjoy my work.
- I love to exercise!
- I am calm and relaxed.
Risk Free Trial
100% Money Back Guarantee
The best part of getting Subliminal Power software is that it's risk free! You can try it out for 28 days, and if you're not happy with it, there is a 100% money back guarantee.
At the time of this writing, I have had this software for only a few days. I also have it up and running, using custom messages, while I am working on this paragraph.
If you're wondering if I've noticed a difference yet, I can honestly say that I have. Of the custom messages that I am using, one of them is "My sleep is deep, restful and rejuvinating." I chose this as I have a tendency to have "busy brain" when I sleep, which means that even when I've had a full night's sleep, I feel like I've been awake all night! In the few days I've been using the software, I have actually noticed a difference in the quality of my sleep. I have some other creativity-related messages in my list, and I've noticed a positive change in that regards, too.
A couple of things on my list are longer term, and I won't know if they have been successful for quite some time, so I can't speak for them quite yet.
Would I recommend this software?
At this point, I would say yes. In the short time I've had it, I've already noticed some changes, and the money back guarantee ensures that I have not risked my money.

Well, it's now been over a month since I've been using this software. On to the big question.
Does it work?
I have been using a custom series of messages in my software, being sure to keep the messages short, positive and relatively few, so as to focus on a few key areas. Some, as mentioned above, were things I could judge fairly quickly whether they were working or not. Others, I still won't know for months, perhaps even years, if there is any positive effect.
Meanwhile, I have a few messages, focusing around a specific goal, that could potentially have results somewhere in between the two extremes. I won't go into detail as to what they are at this time, as they are personal goals that I am not quite ready to make public yet. These are goals that are ongoing and, unless things change significantly in my personal life, I expect to have these goals for many years, achieving various levels of success along the way.
Life has been busy - especially with Christmas coming so soon! - so my days are filled with all sorts of activities. Still, when I'm on the computer, I have the software running in the background.
A few days ago, something happened. It was a huge surprise and I wasn't expecting it, but it was extremely positive and had significant ripple effect. It's just a first step in my long term goal, but it's a pretty huge one, this early in the game. It wasn't until several days later (this morning, in fact) that I suddenly realized that this was something that met one of my personal goals - just not in a way I had expected, or even thought about!
Such is the nature of subliminal messaging. The messages state what goal we are trying to achieve. How that goal gets achieved is something else entirely. Our conscious, logical minds may see only a few, select ways - or none at all - to achieve those goals. Our subconscious minds, however, has no such limitations and can find different, creative ways to meet our goals. It's really quite amazing what our minds are capable off!
All in all, I'd say getting this software has already paid off!
Update: April, 2013
New version out
If you found this software interesting, you might like to check out my new review of the updated version, Subliminal Power 2.
This is the book where I found out about this software. There are a lot of really excellent ideas in here, and well worth the read.
Tell me what you think!
Sublimnal messaging is still considered controversial, and there have even been attempts to ban it completely because of how powerful it can be. Others claim it's just a hoax.
