The Power of Subliminal Messaging

     Subliminal messaging involves the presentation of stimuli, such as images or sounds, known to be “below the threshold of conscious awareness”. These messages are designed to influence the subconscious mind. Some believe it can tap into our subconscious thoughts and desires, leading to positive changes in behavior, attitudes, and belief. Subliminal messaging has been used to enhance self-improvement and motivation. Messages in audio recordings or visuals can reinforce positive affirmations and can also play a role in stress reduction and relaxation techniques  Calming images or sounds can be incorporated, which helps lead to relaxation. I've known about subliminal messages since the beginning of high school while I was on a search for inspirational videos. I've put on subliminal message videos for sleeping, which was similar to white noise, and in my opinion, I didn't see a difference. Overall the topic of subliminal messages is very interesting, but it's hard to tell if it actually works or not.

  1. Faith, I found your post very interesting. The usage of subliminal messaging can be found in so many unexpected places. I always think about spongebob and the shows subliminal adult humor that gets overlooked so often.
