Subliminal messages are basically suggestions for your mind which are exposed to you for such a short period of time, or hidden, that your mind does not consciously register what it suggests.
Instead, you register it sub-consciously. And also, they can be either positive or negative. In this article, I will tell you about 2 different ways through which you can create your own custom subliminal messages.
The best way to prove to you that subliminal messages work is through an experience you have most likely already had.
I am sure you have been in a crowded room with many animated conversations happening all around you. Now, if someone calls out your name, you would still most likely be able to hear it, wouldn’t you?
The first method I will tell you about is subliminal audios.
The great thing about this method is that you can use them anywhere and everywhere, unlike the other method I will tell you about next.
These audios usually come with either binaural beats or very relaxing music. The messages are repeated so fast, that our conscious mind has no idea what it suggests. You can get pre-made and also custom subliminal audios.
The other popular method is the one of flashing messages on your computer or movie screen.
Here again, the messages are repeated so fast that your conscious mind does not have time to even read them. You would have probably heard stories of the government and large companies using them in advertisements etc.
Advertising this way was even banned by the US government around 40 years ago!
In today’s expanding computer era, you can get software’s which display subliminal messages on your screen while you are working on it. You can choose and personalize the messages before they are even displayed too.
So there you have it!
You now know of 2 different ways through which you can create your own custom subliminal messages.

Sooooo what exactly is self-hypnosis secrets?
You may have heard the term “self-hypnosis” but a lot of people don’t truly understand what it is and why it is so important to learn.
You see, self-hypnosis is a process by which you can program your mind to accept suggestions or believe in something in the subconscious state and reprogram your mind to create a better life for yourself.
Your mind is made up of 3 sets of conscious states.
The conscious mind (also known as the awake mind, rational mind or thinking mind), the subconscious mind (also known as the unconscious mind, the emotional mind or sleeping mind) and the super-conscious mind (or the spiritual energy mind).
In our awakened or “conscious” or “Beta” state, we analyze, compare and contrast everything we are presented with. In fact, your conscious mind is probably comparing what you’re reading right now to something you may have read or heard about this subject in the past.
Pretty cool huh?
The first of three self-hypnosis secrets is that only one state of consciousness rests or “sleeps.” This is the conscious mind. Remember this as this information will be important to our self-hypnosis conversation very soon.
Now, our subconscious mind and our Super-conscious mind never rests or sleeps.
In fact, we would die if our subconscious mind took a break as it is like a super-computer that runs our main operating programs in the background 24 hours a day until our last breath.
Our subconscious mind controls our breathing, makes sure our heart keeps beating, out blood continues to flow, our cells continue to reproduce and so much more!
It also stores every single emotion that has been attached to all events we’ve experienced in our lives AND records every single event… good bad or ugly, as an accessible memory.
Remember this piece of information as well as this will very important to our self-hypnosis conversation as well.
Finally, there is the Super-conscious mind. The most spiritual of all self-hypnosis secrets.
This is the energy field within us that is limitless creative potential. It is the true essence of all Creation and it resides inside of every living thing.
Since there are many “theories” about it and many organizations have their own thoughts about it, discussion about it can become a touchy subject which is why we will leave it out of our discussion for today. (If you have questions about how to empower your Super-Conscious Mind, contact me here)
So now that you know about your 3 minds, you now have the foundation to understand self-hypnosis secrets.
First, the words “self-hypnosis” implies that you are hypnotizing yourself… and you are!
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. Even if you are working with a professional hypnotist for coaching or in a stage show, he or she is merely guiding you back into a natural state of self-hypnosis you experience every day and every night. (more info on states of self-hypnosis can be found here)
Secondly, the act of self-hypnosis is purposely quieting your conscious mind so it stops analyzing, comparing and contrasting.
Once this is accomplished, your subconscious mind can be reprogrammed with new thought programs which help you create new decisions and actions which produce better results in your life.
In future articles, we’ll get into the proper way to begin reprogramming your subconscious mind with self-hypnosis, but for now, let’s just experience a little self-hypnosis shall we?

Since many people always ask, “Does hypnosis work?”, these real hypnosis stories in history may shed light on evidence of hypnotic-like phenomena that appears in many ancient cultures.
The writer of the book of Genesis seems familiar with the anesthetic power of hypnosis when he reports that God put Adam “into a deep sleep” to take his rib to form Eve.
Other ancient records suggest hypnosis was used by the oracle at Delphi and in rites in ancient Egypt (Hughes and Rothovius, 1996).
Pioneers of Hypnosis
The modern history of real hypnosis stories in history begins in the late 1700s, when a French physician, Anton Mesmer, revived an interest in the practice of hypnosis.
1734-1815 Franz Anton Mesmer was born in Vienna. Mesmer is considered the father of hypnosis.
He is remembered for the term mesmerism which described a process of inducing trance through a series of passes he made with his hands and/or magnets over people. He claimed that he worked with a person’s animal magnetism (psychic and electromagnetic energies).
The medical community eventually discredited him despite his considerable success in treating a variety of ailments. His successes offended the medical establishment of the time, who arranged for an official French government investigating committee.
This committee included Benjamin Franklin, then the American ambassador to France, and Joseph Guillotine, a French physician who introduced a gruesome device for physically separating the mind/head from the rest of the body.
1795-1860 James Braid, an English physician, originally opposed to mesmerism (as it had become known) who subsequently became interested.
He said that cures were not due to animal magnetism however, they were due to suggestion. He developed the eye fixation technique (also known as Braidism) of inducing relaxation and called it hypnosis (after Hypnos, the Greek god of sleep) as he thought the phenomena was a form of sleep.
Later, realizing his error, he tried to change the name to monoeidism (meaning influence of a single idea) however, the original name stuck.
1825-1893 Jean Marie Charcot a French neurologist, disagreed with the Nancy School of Hypnotism and contended that hypnosis was simply a manifestation of hysteria.
In this real hypnosis stories in history, there was a bitter rivalry between Charcot and the Nancy group (Liebault and Bernheim).
Charcot revived Mesmer’s theory of Animal Magnetism and identified the three stages of trance; lethargy, catalepsy and somnambulism.
1845-1947, Pierre Janet was a French neurologist and psychologist who was initially opposed to the use of hypnosis until he discovered its relaxing effects and promotion of healing. Janet was one of the few people who continued to show an interest in hypnosis during the psychoanalytical rage.
1849-1936 Ivan Petrovich Pavlov – Russian psychologist who actually was more focused on the study of the digestive process. He is known primarily for his development of the concept of the conditioned reflex (or Stimulus-Response Theory). In his classic experiment, he trained hungry dogs to salivate at the sound of a bell, which was previously associated with the sight of food. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology in 1904 for his work on digestive secretions.
Though he had nothing to do with hypnosis, his Stimulus Response Theory is a cornerstone in linking and anchoring behaviors, particularly in NLP.
1857-1926 Emile Coue, a physician who formulated the Laws of Suggestion. He is also known for encouraging his patients to say to themselves 20-30 times a night before going to sleep; “Everyday, in every way, I am getting better and better.”
He eventually abandoned the concept of hypnosis in favor of just using suggestion, feeling hypnosis and the hypnotic state impaired the efficiency of the suggestion.
Coue’s Laws of Suggestion
The Law of Concentrated Attention
“Whenever attention is concentrated on an idea over and over again, it spontaneously tends to realize itself”.
The Law of Reverse Action
“The harder one tries to do something, the less chance one has of success”
The Law of Dominant Effect
“A stronger emotion tends to replace a weaker one”
1856-1939 Sigmund Freud traveled to Nancy, France and studied with Liebault and Bernheim, and then did an additional study with Charcot.
Freud did not incorporate hypnosis into his therapeutic work however because he felt he could not hypnotize patients to a sufficient depth, felt that the cures were temporary and that hypnosis stripped patients of their defenses.
Freud was considered a poor hypnotist given his paternal manner.
However, his clients often went into trance and he often, unknowingly, performed non-verbal inductions when he would place his hand on his patient’s head to signify the Doctor dominant, patient submissive roles. Because of his early dismissal of hypnosis in favor of psychoanalysis, hypnosis was almost totally ignored. This is another real hypnosis stories in history.
1875-1961 Carl Jung, a student, and colleague of Freud’s, rejected Freud’s psychoanalytical approach and developed his own interests. He developed the concept of the collective unconscious and archetypes.
Though he did not actively use hypnosis, he encouraged his patients to use active imagination to change old memories. He often used the concept of the inner guide, in the healing work. He believed that the inner mind could be accessed through tools like the I Ching and astrology.
He was rejected by the conservative medical community as a mystic. However, many of his ideas and theories are actively embraced by healers to this day.
1932-1974 Milton Erickson, a psychologist, and psychiatrist pioneered the art of indirect suggestion in hypnosis. He is considered to be the father of modern hypnosis. His methods bypassed the conscious mind through the use of both verbal and nonverbal pacing techniques including metaphor, confusion, and many others.
He was a colorful character and has immensely influenced the practice of contemporary hypnotherapy and its official acceptance by the AMA.
His work, combined with the work of Satir and Perls, was the basis for Bandler and Grinder’s Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
Since then, there have been many new modern leaders in the field of hypnotism including Steve G. Jones, Jason Linett, Wendi Friesen as well as companies that produce hypnosis downloads audio programs for self-improvement

If you’re wondering how to use hypnosis for self-improvement, this article is for you.
Self-hypnosis is a great tool for goal setting and personal development. Most people are surprised at how easy it is to learn self-hypnosis. And self-hypnosis, in turn, makes a lot of things much easier for you to learn as well.
Audio hypnosis programs are a great way for you to start experiencing hypnosis and improving your life to become better since you simply listen to them either while you sleep or when you relax
How do you incorporate hypnosis into your self-improvement practice?
To be successful with self-improvement hypnosis programs, there are certain hypnotist aspects that should be addressed.
The best hypnosis program you could use for self-improvement would be one you create yourself. This way you would be able to address the exact deeply personal issues that may be sabotaging your personal development.
Unlike general topic audio hypnosis programs, this hypnosis session would be made for the exact personal issue you want to address. This would include the precise words and phrases that mean the most to you. So a “perfect” self-hypnosis program would have to be crafted by the person using it to suit his or her own needs.
This would entail buying recording software, a microphone, learning basic audio engineering and then writing out and recording each hypnosis program script … And THAT’S A LOT OF WORK!
With that being said, you still can easily use the DIY method (Do It Yourself) because everytime you relax, you go into a hypnotic trance state.
Below is a Quick Process That Explains How To Use Hypnosis For Self Improvement
1. Write down in a positive statement ONE GOAL you want to achieve.
EXAMPLE – “I wake up every day at 6am refreshed, energized and excited to start my day”
2. Find a quiet place to sit and be alone so you can relax without interruption AND TURN OFF ALL DEVICES (phone, computer, tv, radio, etc)
3. Make sure you are sitting NOT lying down (you may fall asleep). Take 3 deep breaths in thru nose and exhale thru your mouth. On the 3rd exhalation, close your eyes.
4. Begin repeating your statement. EXAMPLE – “I wake up every day at 6am refreshed, energized and excited to start my day”. See yourself doing it, feeling it, touching it, smelling it, hearing it.
5. Continue imagining actually experiencing what you want for at least 3-5 minutes. Then take 3 deep breaths in thru your nose and out thru your mouth while smiling and feeling proud of honoring yourself with this incredible gift of using hypnosis for self-improvement.
Finally, make a promise to yourself to put the practice of self-hypnosis into your daily life and schedule it daily. By doing this, it will become an automatic habit for you.

Working with hypnosis as a Hypnotist and a MindPower Programs coach is very rewarding. I get the privilege of helping people understand how their thoughts create their reality and work with people who want to achieve better results in their lives. But still people ask, does hypnosis work?
In fact, there is never really a day that I get out of bed and think ‘oh no – another boring day at work’ as each and every day brings many more new hypnosis clients and many more new challenges that always keeps me on my toes.
Many people also find my job fascinating and I am never short of anything to say when I am with friends or meeting new people as that age-old question always arises about what I do!
Actually, someone asked me the other night – “You’re a hypnotist. Does hypnosis work?’ I always laugh and say ‘of course not, don’t be so ridiculous!’
Of course, I’m joking with them but it still amazes me that people still don’t actually believe that Hypnosis can work.
To put it simply, hypnosis is simply the act of giving, receiving and most importantly, accepting suggestions.
For instance… imagine me saying this to you, “I’m hungry, do you feel hungry too?”
A second ago, you may not have had any feelings of hunger but once I suggested it, you may now suddenly feel a desire to eat.
If you now feel like eating, you just experienced hypnosis!
I gave you a suggestion. You received the suggestion. Then you accepted the suggestion and a result (feeling hungry) was achieved.
Still skeptical? Are you one of these people that still believe that it can’t be that easy?
Well if you are, then it might be time that you woke up to the fact that your being hypnotized all the time.
Every time you watch TV, listen to the radio, read a book, listen to a speaker or even your own self-talk you are being hypnotized.
Hypnosis is going on all around you so you may want to start paying attention to how your being hypnotized and how your inadvertently hypnotizing other people too. Once your aware that self-hypnosis is always happening, then you can start to use it to improve your life.
Hypnosis can help you get you the life that you want and to help you to attain the things that you want to have.
One question I always ask my clients is ‘what would you achieve if nothing was impossible?’
The reason that I ask this is that as we grow into adulthood we stop using our ability to set high ambitions like we did as kids and we start to create limitations and reasons why we can’t achieve certain things.
We actually begin to decide whether something is impossible or not – that’s right we actually set the limit on what is impossible!
As I said – Hypnosis is a viable option to achieve your goals.
So I want to ask you the question – what would you achieve if nothing was impossible?
These are all things that people regularly use Hypnosis for.
The bottom line: Does hypnosis work?
The anwer is YES!
Isn’t it time that you started to find out more information about how you can use Hypnosis to improve your own life?
