Subliminal Self Help CDs – Would You Consider Using Them?
Subliminal Self Help CDs, would you consider using them, or do they frighten you just a little? When you are looking for ways to feel better, or change something about yourself, or even just to escape for a bit of relaxation, has it ever crossed your mind to give them a try?
I have always found the notion to be an interesting concept and since making a decision to give them a trial, I find that I use them regularly. After all, as Carers, we should have all the tools we can in our arsenal to operate to the best of our ability. A carer may not be the only one who benefits from subliminal messages either it may help the person you care for too.
Very Needed, Very Convenient
I only have a few in my collection so far, perhaps 10, but I plan to obtain many more as I go through my journey. The task of caring for another person, sometimes several people, can really take it out of you physically, emotionally and psychologically and while it may be nice to take some time out of the day to just sit and relax, I often find myself without such time.
Sit Back And Relax
The great thing about an mp3 subliminal message is that you can just listen without concentrating on what is being said. A set of headphones and an iPod or mp3 player can be used if you are not stationary, or just use your stereo, even your car is a perfect place to listen while driving between locations. If you find the time to sit down and actively focus on the music, that is fantastic, but in truth it is not necessary, your subconscious will still hear what it is supposed to. I put them on in the background when I am writing and they help me focus better.
What’s All The Fuss About?
For many people, subliminal messages are not your everyday run of the mill tool for use by Carers or anyone for that matter. In fact, not many people are aware that they are an option. Here’s just a bit of background on subliminal messages to get you up to speed on what they are and how they work. Please note that I refer here to audio and not visual subliminal messages, although they are available and are also another option you may wish to look into.
What Are Subliminal Messages And How Do They Work?
Subliminal messages are phrases and words, for example, affirmations, that are spoken into a recording. Using special techniques, the recording is then layered over audio which might be music, or relaxing sounds like a waterfall or bird sounds. They are arranged in such a way that they work on the subconscious mind.
Inaudible To The Conscious Mind, But Audible To The Subconscious!
These words and phrases are almost inaudible to the conscious mind, yet sound loud and clear to the subconscious. An example of an affirmation might be a positive saying such as, “I am at peace”, or “I am happy”, and this would be repeated many times on an audio, among other similar phrases depending on what your particular choice of audios is aimed at working on.
1000’s of Affirmations, Over And Over
An audio such as this may contain thousands of such affirmations, all being repeated over and over again. The process is designed to rewire a person’s patterns of thinking, giving them a positive outcome and feeling. In the case of a Carer, we might try affirmations such as “I am strong”, “I am caring”, “My life is great”, “I am calm”, “I stay positive”, to name just a few. I’m sure you would be able to come up with some much better ones than these. I just thought of these off the top of my head.
“There’s An Audio For That!” – Subliminal Messages Can Cover Just About Anything
If this sparks your interest, I will give you an idea of the kinds of subliminal audios that are available that might be relevant to Carers and the people cared for too, however, not just carers and their dependents will find them beneficial. Anyone wanting to bring about change in their lives will find them valuable.
Examples of some of the topics you might find covered by subliminal messages are;
Burst with energy
- Get a great night’s sleep
- Enjoy inner peace
- Stay calm and collected
- Dissolve worry and stress
- Let go of anger
- Control your emotions
- Be more self-reliant
- Let go of the past
- Boost your self esteem
- Be more assertive
- Overcome anxiety
Let Go Of The Stigma!
For some people there is an element of concern that what you are being fed subconsciously might not be what you think. There is a bit of a stigma surrounding the idea that subliminal messaging might be used for evil purposes.
The company I recommend offer a recording of voices speaking the phrases and words. This goes a long way to show they are transparent and should ease such worries.
Where Do I Get It?
I personally use one particular company’s audios and have been very pleased with the content. I have reviewed them here. I even use them as relaxation music. I’ve made a playlist of some that use bird sounds, some rainfall versions, others are waterfall sounds, and some are just a simple relaxing music.
I’m Listening Right Now!
In fact I am listening to my playlist as I write this article, the particular track playing in the background here currently is called ‘Attract Success’ and I have picked the ‘Stream’ version this time, with little bird calls occasionally through it. I can only just make out the spoken voice on rare moments. I really find them very peaceful and relaxing and also I am able to focus on what I’m doing because it helps to calm my mind enough by drawing my attention enough to it to concentrate on the task at hand and not get distracted by everything around me. I guess it kind of drowns out all the other noises around me much like a filter. I also listen to it at night time quite often, I play the audios as I am trying to go to sleep.
I hope this information on the attributes of subliminal self help CDs is something that may be of as much value to you as it has been valuable to me. After reading this, tell me in the comments below, would you consider using them?
