You might think about hypnosis as a way to put thoughts into people’s heads, but in fact you don’t need to hypnotize people to do this. Subliminal messages are used all throughout the world to covey messages to people, even when they are awake. This is normally through the TV during adverts. These advertising companies have figures out how to use subliminal messages to make people buy their products. So what is a subliminal message?
Most of the time, a subliminal message will be used in the background of a song. It can even be used in TV adverts to make you more willing to buy the products. The brain will detect these messages even if you don’t hear them consciously.
Your mind will control your actions and you will be totally unaware of it. You might feel like eating a chocolate one day and what you might not have realized was that you were told that you wanted a chocolate during an advert the day before.
These messages can be dangerous if used incorrectly or by someone wanting to affect people’s minds. Your brain cannot filter the messages you receive which means that you will have no concept of the logic behind it. You won’t reserve judgment about it and you might not even understand it. Your brain can mix it up with other messages too.
Here are some ways that you can stop the subliminal messages. You know that they can be received when you listen to music and watch TV, but if you concentrate while watching and listening it is far better. Your brain will not be totally unconscious in this way, so you have more control over what you receive.
The messages you receive can be eliminated or have little effect when you concentrate. The subliminal messages cannot be used in a dangerous way and most of the time advertising companies will use more direct messages. These can be heard consciously, but if you don’t watch TV adverts and go into another room, you will still pick up these impulses. You might find that even listening to the radio in the background can give you subliminal messages.
