The use of subliminals, guided imageries and self-hypnosis is powerful
because it creates a optimal brain/mind/body link through the conscious
and unconscious minds.
Almost all right-handed people have the Left hemisphere as "dominant" (mostly
conscious) and the Right as "non-dominant" (mostly unconscious).
For the majority of left-handed people, this is reversed.
Together, these hemispheres take care of the detailed functions for you, and
have a division of labor system worked out. They each do important work, and
either hemisphere alone can think, feel, and remember in its own way... but
they don't compute it in the same way or speak the same language. They are
frequently at odds, and they don't always do the tasks that they do best.
Each hemisphere often does instead what it thinks it can do, and power struggles
are a result. If you want to change something but can't seem to do it, this
power struggle is probably what is keeping you stuck! The important thing is
to let them communicate effectively with each other. A very easy way to do
this is through subliminals.
Many with "genius" intellect such as Einstein and Mozart demonstrated
using each half of the brain for what it does best. Einstein said, "The
words or language do not seem to play any role in my mechanism of thoughts.
Images can be voluntary. The combinatory play seems to be essential in productive
thought, before any connection with the logical construction. That comes only
later, laboriously, in a second stage." The act of genius requires a real
partnership of intuition and logic.
During the past thirty years many scientific studies have made the phenomenon
of subliminal perception a new scientific fact. With imageries and subliminals,
important memories and stimuli which effect behavior registered out of awareness
can now be used for change in a partnership of intuition and logic.
Short-term memory becomes long-term memory. It is not possible to
think consciously in both hemispheres at once. Only your dominant
hemisphere can express itself
in words, and so a memory can actually exist which affects behavior, yet is
unknown and unavailable to your verbal (conscious) awareness. It constructs
a false world in which it is responsible for everything and because it has
a direct line to consciousness it sounds and looks as if it is in charge. It
handles speech, time, logic, critical, scientific judgement and sequential "computer-like" ordering.
It sees in little pieces, instead of the whole picture.
Tests have shown that the dominant side doesn't hesitate to rationalize and
take credit for actions that are obviously the work of the non-dominant side.
One of the greatest barriers in teaching highly verbal people how to use their
non-dominant brain is that they cannot believe that they have a non-verbal
Your non-dominant hemisphere does at least half of the work for you but can't
talk about it. It deals with image, subjective thinking, is symbolic, wholistic,
here-and-now, intuitive, and creative.
This hemisphere recognizes emotions, mediates pain more intensely, sees patterns
more, is more musical and sexual, sees in wholes and responds to the unknown.
There is evidence that dreaming occurs primarily in the right hemisphere.
Consciousness is only a small part of our wholeness. We are all affected by
a lot of things in our unconscious which our consciousness doesn't know anything
about. Your non-dominant hemisphere (unconscious), knows and makes decisions
based on nonverbal processes. No wonder we have trouble accomplishing what
we think we want sometimes!
It takes significantly less time for change using subliminal messages than
through placebos. Remarkable behavioral, psychological and even physiological
change can occur if the suggestions and images are presented which engage the
unconscious in the process.
William James said, "Man alone is the architect of his destiny.
The greatest revolution in our generation is that of human beings,
by changing their inner
attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives."
Techniques used to access the unconscious show time after time the ability
of mind and changing consciousness to affect the physical processes of the
brain and body. The mind does moves matter in the brain, according
to Sperry's Nobel-prize winning theory.
As new methods to integrate the brain's activity are used to make it less random
and enticing it into higher organization, brains undergo a quite literal accelerated
transformation, with behavioral change occurring at the same time.
Subliminal stimulus has the ability to move the anchor point, the position
from which people evaluate the world around them, between virtually any two
concepts in any direction desired.
By reaching the unconscious through subliminals and imagery you can
hold" your normal frame-of-reference, making yourself amazingly receptive
to change. In this way, your "split brain", which has kept you stuck
in limiting beliefs, biases and actions which are no longer useful to you will
no longer be able to stop you.
