ANSWERS TO THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT SUBLIMINAL PROGRAMMING
Q. Will the programs be harmful to my baby or my preschool age children?
A. Since only positive affirmations are used, a youngster can benefit from exposure to the programs, thereby establishing positive attitudes and habits.
In order for anyone to experience any effect whatsoever from our programs, they must be an age that ensures an elementary command of the English language.
Q. Will I have to listen to these programs for the rest of my life? Or, for how long? How many hours a day should I listen, and can I skip weekends?
A. Habits are acquired through long-term conditioning; hence, relearning or reprogramming will not be a short-term process, though we fervently wish it could be. The period of time required for the use of our programs, before a behavior change is noticed, varies from person to person, based on such factors as age, stress levels, severity of problem, conscious mental attitudes, etc.
Once you are reprogrammed, you are, in fact, reprogrammed. The data in the subconscious mind has been changed from negative to positive; hence, you should not have to listen to the programs for the rest of your life. But, they are always beneficial for refreshing your positive attitude.
With regard to number of daily hours of listening, 1 hour per day is the minimum. But 1 hour is such a bare minimum, that we prefer to recommend at least 2 to 3 hours per day. Actually, the more you can listen, the quicker you should see results. The programs should be listened to every day, and no days should be skipped. This is a cumulative process. Skipping days only makes a person lose ground.
Q. Are some people immune to subliminal suggestions, or do they work on everyone?
A. Presently, no system of reprogramming is universally effective.
However, the vast majority of users of our products report some degree of success. In fact, most people who do not experience results are found to have not followed the proper methods of listening or have not allowed enough time for the programming to take affect.
Q. If I have a hearing impairment, will the programs still benefit me?
A. Hearing loss, except in the case of profound deafness, is related to loss of conduction of certain frequencies of sound. Our programs cover the full range of normal frequencies and pitches.
If you can hear the sounds of the ocean waves, or “white noise”, you can rest assured that the embedded subliminal messages are being received. The percentage of messages lost is roughly equivalent to the percentage of hearing loss. If you suspect a hearing loss, it is advisable to have your hearing checked.
Q. Is subliminal reprogramming related to hypnosis?
A. No. Hypnosis is based on your ability and willingness to give up some measure of conscious control.
The conscious mind is compelled by the hypnotist to relax and allow entry of externally introduced material. With subliminal reprogramming the conscious mind is bypassed and you do not change from one state of consciousness to another. You are always aware of what’s occurring externally. Subliminal reprogramming is virtually an effortless process.
Q. Can I copy the program to give to my friends?
A. The subliminal frequencies, which are in varying pitches of frequency range, are not all recaptured when duplicated.
Therefore, any duplication of an original tape or CD will be much less effective because the subliminal tonal range can not be carried forward from duplication to duplication. Furthermore, our programs are copyrighted, patented and registered. Any attempts at duplication are illegal and void any and all warranties.
Q. How do I obtain optimum performance from my tape or CD player?
A. With continual use of any audio cassette player, a magnetic field is created in and around the playback head area of the recorder.
This condition will cause the player to fail to reproduce some of the higher frequencies of your tape and possibly entangle the tape in the cassette player. In order to receive the full benefit from the programs, you should “demagnetize” the heads as well as the other metal parts around the heads of your player after every 24 hours of recorder or player operation. Demagnetizers or degouzers, as they are sometimes called, are available at a small cost from any audio store. If using a CD player, then simply use the repeat function and set CD player to repeat track two. Your CD player will replay track two over & over until you turn your CD player off. Periodically clean your CD player using a CD cleaning disc found at any audio store. Please note that if any solvent not specifically intended for cleaning CDs is used on either side of the CD will damage the CD & voids all warranties. Simply use water & soap or windex with a soft cloth to clean the CD. Avoid excessive rubbing when cleaning is needed. With proper care & handling the CD will continue to play perfectly.
Q. What about MP3 file formats and downloads?
A. MP3 file formats compress the sound thereby negating the majority of affirmations contained under the ocean waves.
You can still hear the ocean waves – but the affirmations themselves become unrecognizable by your subconscious mind. Due to the large amount of audio data on our programs it is not feasible to make them available as downloads and as stated above MP3 downloads would be ineffective due to their compression of the audio data.
Q. Why are the affirmations for the various subliminal programs not made available?
1. Loss of Effectiveness The major reason the manufacturer withholds the exact nature of the script from its customers is that research clearly indicates a dramatic loss in the effectiveness of the programs if the exact script is known to the user. This occurs because the conscious mind, in its unbelief of the concepts contained in the program, will diminish the power the programming affirmations will have on the subconscious. Of course, the other reason the scripts are maintained in secrecy is that a great deal of money and research has been used in developing scripts which are worded in a way to achieve maximum effectiveness. These carefully guarded affirmation structures are part of the reason for the vast superiority our subliminal programs have over competitors.
2. Rejection of Undesirable Programming While your subconscious mind operates for the most part undetected by your consciousness, it is directly linked to and part of the overall human mind. A great deal of data has been gathered in various research projects that strongly indicates that the subconscious mind will reject any programming that is contrary to the moral convictions, better judgment or the desires of the conscious mind. If there were undesirable affirmations contained in any of our subliminal programs, they would be largely, if not totally, ineffective in the programming process. Your mind is far too complex to be “fooled” by subliminal messages of an undesirable nature.
3. Independent Approval All subliminal programs have had the affirmations specific to the program titles reviewed by a board of advisors serving through the Subliminal Research Foundation. The board consists of three members and all are well respected in the psychological community and are from diverse parts of the United States.

The Advisory Board serves as a mechanism to insure customers that they are, in fact, being exposed to affirmations that are in keeping with their needs and are not receiving any harmful information or programming. Before any of the scripts are incorporated into a subliminal program and made available to our customers, the Advisory Board must have unanimously certified that:
- The script contains only affirmations that are in keeping with the purpose of the program as indicated by its title.
- The script contains no affirmations which have any moral, social, political or religious connotations, and
- The scripts do not contain any affirmations which a reasonably prudent person would consider harmful, destructive, or in any way detrimental to its listener.
HOW TO USE SUBLIMINAL PROGRAMMING
Using our subliminal programs is almost an effortless process. It is not necessary to LISTEN to the programs, mere exposure to them is all that is necessary as the conscious mind is unable to perceive or understand what is being said. You will not be CONSCIOUSLY participating in the programming process even if you listen intently. Instead, you should implement an automatic process of as much exposure as possible to the sound of the ocean waves as you carry on your life in a normal fashion. You derive full and complete benefit from the programs by simply allowing them to play, at a volume which can be heard but is not distracting, during your normal daily activities, such as working, talking, listening to music, watching television, etc.
The most critical factor is the amount of time the program is allowed to perform the subconscious programming process. The amount of exposure time necessary for the desired results varies from program to program and from individual to individual. It is, however, recommended that a minimum exposure of twenty to twenty-five hours be allowed for each program to achieve measurable results. It is recommended that a cassette player is purchased which has the AUTO REVERSE feature. We make this recommendation primarily because you will usually be unaware of the tape stopping if a standard AUTO STOP type of player is utilized. If your program is on CD – then simply use your CD player’s repeat function on track two.
Ideal situations include the playing of the programs at work during the day. This is especially effective for persons who perform their daily tasks in a relatively confined area such as an office or desk. These people should make it a habit to turn the machine on the first thing in the morning and then should “forget about it” and let it play all day. The volume should be sufficient to hear the ocean waves, but need not be loud enough to constitute a distraction for the user or any co-workers.
It is not recommended that the programs be played in an automobile while driving. While the programs will not be distracting, the sound of the ocean waves for some people, causes drowsiness. For this reason, you should at least examine the conscious effect the programs have on you before considering use in your automobile.
Allowing a subliminal program to play during sleeptime will provide at least 1-1/2 to 2 hours of very effective programming.
Because the subconscious mind has the ability to perceive and retain millions of bits of information per second, for some individuals the simultaneous use of more than one program are highly effective. If, for instance, you wish to engage in the programming process using three different programs, you may listen to them all at one time by using three tape players or CD players. Each user can determine by experimentation whether more than one program at a time is the most effective way to proceed.
The subconscious mind has the ability to perceive and retain millions of bits of information per second.
Many times a person will notice a major change in personality, preferences, characteristics, or ability and not relate the change to subliminal program exposure. You should, therefore, be advised that the changes that will take place in your behavior will many times not “feel” as though something from the outside was responsible. Because the programs affect the innermost regions of the subconscious mind, the behavioral modifications seem to be the result of inner feelings and motivations. The weight loss program, for instance, contains affirmations dealing with self-image, self-confidence, and other aspects of a healthy and complete individual. In many cases, a person who has had constant exposure to the weight loss program will find themselves with new abilities and confidence, which have nothing to do with eating or weight loss. It is also important that the user doesn’t place limitations or time restraints on the expected results from the program. The subconscious acts as an enabling device, moving continually toward the accomplishment of what it perceives to be desired goals. If the user expects too little, or expects results too fast, the subconscious may decide that the job is completed prematurely or, in some instances, may stop working towards the desired goal, because the time frame that is allowed is too short for its accomplishment.
You should also “help” the process by consciously expecting a great deal of benefit from exposure to the programs while not limiting the period of time allowed for the desired results. In instances where the program appears to be working slowly, or not at all, the user should remember that there are years of negative programming which must be overcome, and, in these instances, more time should be allowed and the programs should be played more often and for longer periods of time.
There are for some people, periods of time that the improvement process seems to have “leveled off”, and they feel, even though they may have received tremendous benefit initially, that the programs are no longer affecting them. This is not the case and this person should continue exposure to the programs until a “breakthrough” occurs and additional results are noticed. These situations occur for several reasons, including failure to notice subtle changes in seemingly unrelated behavior which must occur before effects can be seen in the exact area of the program.
It is not necessary to listen to the programs as they play. Mere exposure to them during normal, everyday activities is sufficient for the reprogramming process to be effective!
