Programming Your Subconscious Mind.

Today I'm writing about programming our subconscious mind. If you are new, then I hope you can read  my previous posts here and here. If you google about the subconscious mind, you'll find you'll get more than 1,450,000 results and definitely so many websites and so many products and different information will  put you in confusion. So, on one of my previous post 'brainwave' is also the background for this post. There are various techniques and even mind tools to tap into the power of subconscious mind. Few of the techniques to access our subconscious mind are: 
1. Meditation
2. Hypnosis (including self-hypnosis)
3. Brainwave entrainment CDs
4. Subliminal Mind Programming

1. Meditation: 
"Sleep is unconscious meditation, Meditation is conscious sleep." Meditation means communicating with the higher-energy, cosmic consciousness, (in layman language: god). We are cosmic spiritual being so we need to communicate with our source to be in healthy and blissful state. Many of you might have heard that Meditation reduces stress and improve health conditions, that is true and scientific. Meditation is simply witnessing the current moment(what's happening right now in your breathe, in your body i.e. you are feeling hot, witnessing the process of breathe) without analyzing, without reacting, without interpreting, because they are all the function of mind and meditation is simply to watch the thoughts arising in mind and by this, all your bad thoughts simply dissolves in time. By meditating we can be blissful and happy. I don't think anyone needs to know more about Meditation, if you want to know the importance of meditation read this 'meditation, a necessity' and if you need visual guide for meditation watch this video 'Spiritual Reality - A Journey Within

2. Hypnosis:
Hypnosis is a scientifically proven technique that can help you to change your behavior, improve mental health, discontinue bad habits and even helps you to lose weight, to quit smoking, increase your self-confidence. Hypnosis is a process that involves getting you in a very deep relaxed state where your subconscious mind becomes highly receptive for suggestions, and so using those suggestions and sending new beliefs and thoughts to the mind.
To understand hypnosis in simple way, Hypnosis is the state of being in half awake state, in which you are not fully asleep but your conscious mind becomes less responsive and cannot filter any suggestions and information you receive as in conscious and awake state. So, in this state the conscious mind doesn't filter any suggestions we give and goes directly to the subconscious mind and stays there permanently. Thats why belief system plays an important role in any person's development. In conscious or normal circumstances our conscious mind filters whatever we see or hear (because analyze, interpret, response to any action, etc are the work of conscious mind). So, If I told you that you are successful and confident person you may not believe me. But if I say that while you are in half awake state you simply go on believing it because it goes directly to subconscious mind. 
So what actually is the potentiality of hypnosis?
Just think of the increased strength and control you will get after modifying the old negative beliefs about yourself (for example: you think "I'm poor", "I'm not successful", "I'm a fool"). Think if you unconsciously consider yourself that you are poor, unsuccessful and fool. The same beliefs won't let you become wealthy, successful and wise. Using self hypnosis you can change your all the negative beliefs and succeed in life.

3. Brainwave entrainment CDs
Brainwave entrainment is any practice or audio technology (sound frequencies) that could drive brain activity into wide variety of specific brain states (for example, to induce sleep, to induce meditation, healing) with the help of stimulus. These stimulus is often aural, i.e. binaural or monaural beats and isochronic tones. For e.g. When delta brainwave is introduced to brain then, sleep state can be induced.
This is one of the reason why brainwave audios have been used for meditation, healing, sleep induction, curing insomnia and various others diseases including cancer simply by listening to specific brainwave entrainment audio. It takes your brainwave activity to altered states. So, you can use them to Meditate, for healing, reduce stress, to sleep better, to improve memory, to increase creativity  to enhanced learning, etc. Here are few brainwave entrainment programs by Kelly Howell.

4. Subliminal Mind Programming: 
First we need to know what is subliminal messages?
Subliminal Messages are messages that are hidden within video files, audio files or desktop backgrounds. These messages are sent directly to the subconscious mind without the conscious mind noticing them; in other words without filtering them. They are usually played at very high speeds or played in whispering voices that the conscious mind can't notice. That's why companies used 'subliminal messages' to program the minds of audience to buy more of their product while watching their commercials and it resulted in a larger sales volume.
This is one of the easiest and laziest method of programming your subconscious mind because it doesn't require you to do anything except listening the subliminal audio provided to you. This audio program works even if you fall asleep when you are listening to it. You can listen with headphones while you sleep. Subliminal mind programming is done through the repetition of information. Simply look at our attitude when you go to a shop and buy a beverage, from a list of beverages most of us will simply tell the shopkeeper the name of which we've seen or heard in commercials, that's why subliminal plays a vital role in programming our subconscious mind. 
In this part, the main thing I want to share is about the audio programs that we can use to self hypnotize, and install new positive beliefs and modify the old ones to change our lives. (for e.g. if you want to be healthy and wealthy, then you should have beliefs like "I'm healthy", "I'm happy", "I'm wealthy", etc and these beliefs can be installed by this method) Subliminal mind programming is easiest and laziest method because it installs new beliefs in our subconscious mind. Since subconscious mind learns by repetition not by logic whatever information we provide through subliminal messages gets installed into the subconscious. Look at few subliminal audio programs below:
