Silent Subliminals: How Effective Are They? (part 2 of 2)

Another study pertaining to subliminal messages was conducted at Boston University in October, 2001. Los Angeles Times reported that the study held at Boston confirmed that subliminal messages are really powerful and effective tools in altering, improving and enhancing the mindset of individuals. 

Subliminal messages are said to be silent sculptors of the mind because they basically target the unconscious mind and they also try to infiltrate the mind of a person without any sound or warning at all.  Researchers at Duke and Harvard University have also been involved in studying the effectiveness of subliminal messages and they all came up with quite the same conclusions with the previous researches conducted.

Do Doctors Approve Of Using Subliminals For Patients?

Although not all doctors seem to believe the power of subliminals, there are still a good number of doctors and psychologists that recommend subliminal treatment for their patients.  One particular doctor who is known for his strong confidence and belief in subliminal messages is Dr. Bernie Siegel.

He reports that when calming subliminal messages are given to the patients who undergo surgery, they seem to recover faster than those patients who did not receive any form of subliminal message.  There is also great evidence that patients who receive subliminal messages require less anaesthesia and feel less anxious than patients who did not receive any kind of subliminal treatment.

Silent subliminal messages may still not be wholly acknowledged by the medical field, but more and more medical practitioners are discovering the wonders of subliminal messages.

For the psychiatrists and psychologists, they don’t really have to be convinced about the power of subliminal messages for they already know how powerful subliminal messages can be in tweaking the unconscious mind of people.

Silent Subliminals: How Effective Are They? (part 1 of 2)

Subliminal messages are said to be effective in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Ericksonian Hypnosis.  Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP is a psychological therapy in which words are said to have an impact on people’s thinking and internal images.

Ericksonian Hypnosis, on the other hand, is a very tender yet very effective form of hypnosis.  It creates supportive and affirming messages that are designed to provide both unconscious and conscious experiences of reflective and philosophical change.

A lot of people are still doubtful about the effectiveness of subliminal messages.  The most common question of sceptics is “how would one know if its effective or not?”.  The answer is quite simple, if we look at subliminal messages scientifically and psychologically.  All human beings have so-called “mental programs” that consist of beliefs and thoughts which determine the behaviour of an individual.  The beliefs and thoughts present in an individual’s mind may be positive, negative or both.

Silent Subliminals Can Change One’s Life

If you want to have a whole new outlook on life, or if you simply want to get rid of your negative thoughts and feelings to be able to cultivate and develop your positive behaviour and actions, you can use silent subliminals to achieve your goal.  Subliminal audio programs can change your “mental programs” and generally change your life.  With the use of subliminal messages, your mind can undergo a re-education process which will truly be advantageous for you.

Studies And Research

There have been many studies pertaining to the effectiveness of subliminals on people’s mind.  A Congressional Report in 1984 submitted by the House Committee on Science and Technology concluded that subliminal messages can be picked up by the brain, recorded and then called upon later, as needed.

The Internet is an advanced and handy tool in modern society. Gone are the days that its use limited to learning and socializing. But now, a growing trend for doing business, banking and investing has emerged through online networks. In fact, one of the fastest growing markets online is stock trading.

Faster Transactions

As what every investor and broker should know, time is a very essential element in trading stocks. The effect of whether or not you would be able to make profit or experience loss in your transaction will greatly depend on the time it takes to execute the trade.

In the traditional set-up, you have to call your broker and ask him to buy or sell the stock. Then this would then be followed by a process wherein your broker will negotiate with the trader for the price of the stock. Then, you would have to wait for your broker to call you for the price before you can make a decision on whether you should buy or sell. And then if you do decide to buy or sell the stock, your broker would have to make another call to order through the trader.

However, when you do transactions online, all it takes to be able to buy or sell stocks would be a single click of the mouse. Through this, a quicker exchange can be made, which may also ensure faster earnings.

Social Networking and Religion (part 2 of 2)

But will a child be delighted to sign up on a Christian network than MySpace? Many won’t but if parents are able to encourage their children, then this can happen because not only will they be able to maintain contact with their friends but they will also be able to learn about their faith and be close to like minded individuals.

Learning more about religion is not the only thing you can do being a member of a religious social network. You can also conduct business because people are more likely to do business with those that have similar interests.

To help you along, here are a few options.

The first is called Mypraize which is a Christian version of MySpace. After filling up your profile and security settings, you can participate in the moderated forum, talk with people in the chat room, join other events based on your interests and appreciate Christian music.

JCFaith is another. The only difference is that there are games, news and polls that will keep you or your kids entertained. The site is monitored by pay people and pastors.

Dittytalk enables members to customize their profiles and even their webpage. It has a built in messaging program so you can talk with ease.

Lastly is Xianz which people say has the features of all the three previously mentioned combined. You also get to post classified ads and also use the events calendar which will alert you when someone’s birthday or special event is coming up.

Religion has moved to the digital age as it uses this form of social networking. It is truly, a great alternative to MySpace and the rest.

Social Networking and Religion (part 1 of 2)

Spreading the good news is one of the things that Christians are supposed to share. Aside from inviting people to go to church, they have found a new medium to attract people and that is through social networking.

The idea came about after seeing how successful large social networking sites are operating. In fact, Christianity which is the largest in the world has a lot of them and since everyone believes in it, there won’t be any arguments there.

What makes this special network so different other than believing in the same thing is the fact that it is very easy for members to navigate in. The smaller it is the better so you can just imagine if this was done by a certain sect of Christianity like Catholicism or Protestantism.

The only thing you will see that is very similar to MySpace or Facebook is the features. Members are able to create a profile, add pictures, host a blog, post in forums about your beliefs and other important events. A blog is a great way to get a lengthy discussion when members are allowed to comment on them and you can reply in return.

So you don’t feel lost moving from one of the more popular social networking sites to this one, designers try to replicate everything to facilitate a smooth transition.

Since it is a social network that focuses on religion and family values, parents do not have to worry that much about the safety of their children something that you can’t escape from when you are a member of a large social network. A lot of incidents have already happened and sadly, many of those responsible are able to do it without getting caught.
