The objective of this write up is to inform people about the possible dangers and common side effects of using subliminals. If you feel that subliminals have harmed you in some way then read the entire post as I will also be providing you with helpful solutions and effective alternatives that will benefit you.
So, are subliminals safe or evil? A subliminal by itself is neither good nor bad. It’s simply a tool for reprogramming the subconscious mind. You can listen to them without any worries as long as the affirmations used within are not created in bad faith, with an intention to deceive and harm the user.
It’s for this very reason that access to your subconscious mind should be granted only to trusted subliminal creators with good standing and reputation in the community.
Our subconscious mind is very powerful, once it accepts and imprints an idea, be it negative or positive, it begins to execute it immediately.
To know more about ‘how subliminals work’, I have written a detailed article on this website which you can read here.
What are the dangers of subliminal audio?
Subliminals are based on the premise that for them to be effective, the user should not be able to know the affirmations or hear them consciously.
The reason being that the conscious mind blocks out any new beliefs from entering the subconscious which is not in alignment with the existing reality.
Now, I was never fully convinced with this idea because my subliminal journey began with George Hutton and I got great results with his 4 Voice tracks even though I knew the affirmations and could hear them clearly.
Only his 256 Voice subliminal tracks were unintelligible, but he always listed the affirmations, so even in this case I exactly knew what was going in my mind.
To get a better understanding on this subject I asked George Hutton – “Do Subliminals become ineffective if we know the affirmations?” on his MindPersuasion forum, to which he replied –
There are many problems with this idea.
Mainly because it doesn’t make any sense. You can take KNOWN information and then use various technologies to put that KNOWN information to bypass the conscious critic. That’s pretty much the whole point of hypnosis, and all other technology (like 256 voice files). To make it impossible to question each one.
To say this means you CAN’T know what this information is, EVER, is VERY DANGEROUS.
I’d stay away from the IDEA that you should’t know what’s being put in your brain.– George Hutton
If a subliminal creator uses harmful and manipulative affirmations within his subliminals and they become a part of your belief system then you may experience lingering effects on your personality and behavior which may take time to shake off.
Unfortunately, there’s no “delete button” that will reverse all previous programming immediately.
You’ll have to first identify the negative behaviors, beliefs etc. that you would like to get rid of.
Also, it is important to understand that getting rid of any thinking patterns and behaviors isn’t very dependent on how those behaviors were picked up.
You will have to start off by writing out, in detail, the specific, objective things you’d like to change.
So, before you commit to a subliminal creator test their material out and pay close attention to how it’s impacting your behavior and thoughts over time.
If you feel that the subliminal is continuously giving you bad results even after months of listening then it would be better that you move on to some other creator.
What are the side effects of subliminal audio?
Now, let’s discuss some of the common side effects of subliminal audios and understand why they happen:
You may get some very weird dreams or nightmares after listening to subliminal tracks.
Long time back I had undergone a hypnosis session under the guidance of a certified hypnotherapist. After the session was over, she told me that I could get nightmares and that they were normal.
Well, she was right and sure enough, I did get bad dreams that very night. So, the next day, I called her up as I was curious to understand why the nightmare occurred?
She told me that this was how the subconscious mind removed and eliminated deep-rooted negative beliefs and fears.
She also went on to tell me that I should not try to remember or over-analyze these nightmares and that I should just let them go and forget about them completely.
From our brief conversation, it seems to me that nightmares occurring after listening to subliminals or undergoing hypnosis are harmless and happen as a result of the cleansing process performed by the subconscious mind.
However, you can do your own research, consult with a certified professional if you have to, especially if these nightmares are occurring regularly and are of a nuisance to you.
Post your findings in the comment section below If you happen to gain more clarity on this topic.
Over the years I have seen a couple of comments on my YouTube channels where people have said that they have experienced headaches while listening to my tracks.
If you expose your mind to subliminals for long hours everyday and do not give your mind periods of rest then headaches are bound to happen.
There was a time when I used to listen to subliminals throughout the night but that affected my sleep quality and resulted in headaches the next day.
So, I stopped doing that and now I listen to my custom subliminal only 30 minutes to 1 hour everyday and voila no headaches.
Another reason is that many subliminal makers including me use Binaural Beats within our tracks, this can increase blood flow to the brain and cause the headache.
Just make sure that you drink water and stay hydrated and your headache problem should go away.
However, if your head hurts even after staying hydrated than stop listening to subliminals which include any type of frequencies or binaural beats, find subliminal makers who use nature sound or music in their tracks instead.
Also, listening to subliminals at a loud volume can alleviate headaches. So, make sure that you listen to subliminals at low to comfortable volume.
Our subliminal tracks are intentionally designed and structured through the use of multiple voices and binaural beats to confuse and relax the hyper-active conscious mind which can make you feel drowsy.
It is for this reason that we tell you to avoid using our 4 Voice and 256 Voice Subliminal Tracks while driving, operating heavy machinery or performing any task which requires your full and complete attention.
Subliminal tracks that use nature sounds and soothing music can also calm you down and make you sleepy so avoid these tracks as well while performing the above activities.
I always recommend you listen to subliminals when you’re in a relaxed state, this will give you the best results.
Just exercise some common sense, listen to your body when it gives your signals and you should be ok.
Subliminals can cause some deep-rooted anxieties and fears to surface.
This can be our ego getting in the way so that we give up on the process of self-improvement and remain safe in our comfort zones.
Our mind is very resistant to change because with change comes uncertainty. Also, it takes a huge amount of energy to make this change happen.
From a cost benefit point of view, it makes no sense for the mind to invest so much time and energy (cost) upfront to get some unforeseen positive result (benefit) in the future.
So, at this point, your mind will stir shit up to deter you from your path to betterment.
This is where you need to step in, consciously exert your will, let go of the fear and trust the process.
You will have to push through and listen to the subliminals consistently and repeatedly till these new beliefs become a part of you.
