The Relationship Between Subliminal Messages and Visualization

Science tells us that people have a unique way of dealing with issues: fight or flight. This means you either deal with them or you just run away. Sometimes running can be good, especially if you definitely need to be away from all the uncertainties and worries. However, they do have a way of hounding you back. Thus, the most effective means of getting rid of them or at least co-existing with them is to simply fight.

Fighting, however, is no easy feat. After all, it means directly facing whatever it is that’s causing the negative emotions. These include pain and hurt. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to make fighting a little bit easier. This is called visualization.

What Is Visualization?

Have you tried daydreaming before? Perhaps in the middle of the day you pictured yourself going on a road trip with friends or you’re managing your own business. Visualization basically works that way. It’s like daydreaming. This is because you are going to create images into your head.

The only difference is with visualization you’re actually trying to deal with something, such as pressing issues in your life. To get a better idea, consider this:

Let’s pretend you’re trying to deal with your insecurity. Perhaps you don’t feel very confident of how you look. There are two ways on how to do visualization at this time. First, you picture yourself standing in front of the mirror, telling yourself all the qualities that make you very special.

The second option is to go back to the time that causes your insecurity. It could be that when you are a child, a group of youngsters may be telling you how bad you are compared to them. In your visualization, you can picture yourself fighting off those bullies, or you can appear to them an adult. Then you inform them that you are strong enough to not be bothered by their own claims.

How It Works with Subliminal Messages

Almost always visualization doesn’t work so well without subliminal messages. This is because the power of the images becomes stronger when they are described with words that you can definitely hear. Subliminal messages, at this point, may be called positive statements.

What do they do? They have the ability to change the manner of your thinking. When you use them properly, you can modify your negative thought pattern to something more positive. Using the example above, instead of insecurity, you will feel more confident over yourself while being fed with subliminal messages.

Subliminal messages go directly into your subconscious. This is necessary since the conscious mind, which is the one you usually use, is discriminating. It filters out the kind of information it receives.

Working Together

Going back to the example, you may use the following subliminal messages with your visualization:

I have enough talent within myself.

I am a unique person.

I have skills other people don’t have.

I am confident of my own talents.

I gave a lot of value on what I have.

As these types of messages get into your subconscious and are repeated numerous times, your mind will start to believe they are the absolute truth. Thus, the modification of behavior happens.
