Weird Al Yankovic seems to think so.
Al recorded a backwards subliminal message on his album, Bad Hair Day. The message was in response to special interest groups suing famous artists for backmasking so called satanic messages. Within the song “I Remember Larry” is a message you can only hear if you play the audio backwards. The message is,
“Wow, you must have an awful lot of free time on your hands.”
Do Subliminal Messages Work?
Traditional silent subliminal messages have been around for a very long time.
There are visual subliminal messages and there are silent audio subliminal messages. Both have been used most popularly in advertising and as a draw or hype.
Much more recently, silent subliminal audio messages have been used within audio recordings to help with self-improvement.
With visual subliminal messages, an image is flashed on the screen so quickly that the conscious mind is not aware of it. Only the subconscious mind sees it. The intention is to slip an idea past the conscious mind and plant it in the subconscious.
- The first subliminal advertising in 1957. James Vicary flashed “Eat Popcorn” and “Drink Coca-Cola” up on the screen during a movie. Wildly enthusiastic claims of increased sales were reported after the first experiment. But nobody, including Vicary, was ever able to repeat the initial success.
- The famous Farrah Fawcett poster; with her in a red bathing suit and “sex” written in her hair. It sold 12 million copies.
- Famous bands such as the Beatles, Judas Priest, Queen and Led Zeppelin were accused of promoting marijuana, spreading rumors and even encouraging devil worshiping.
Interesting, but I seriously doubt that listening to Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” is going to make you want to worship the devil.
So then, do subliminal messages work?
Many experts agree that traditional silent subliminal messages do not work. If they ever helped sales, it was probably because someone caught on, told everyone else, and people bought the poster or record to see or hear for themselves.
Traditional self-improvement silent subliminal messages are actually cancelled out by the cover sound. Hence, the term “silent subliminal”.
There is another, newer type of subliminal audio that does work.
Threshold Subliminals do work. But how can they work if traditional silent subliminal messages don’t? Allow me to explain how Threshold Subliminal messages work:
The conscious mind is the critical reasoning mind. You have to bypass the conscious mind if you hope to inject an idea that would otherwise be blocked by the consciousness. Threshold Subliminal messages help ideas to be entered into the subconscious mind without critical analysis.
Threshold Subliminals are used as a form of mild hypnosis to help you make desired changes in your behaviors and feelings automatically.
How do Threshold Subliminal messages work?
Threshold means: The place or point of beginning; the outset.
Subliminal means: Below the threshold of consciousness. In other words, the unconscious or subconscious mind.
The conscious mind is the threshold. Threshold Subliminal simply means the subliminal message is able to bypass the conscious threshold. How? While the message can be heard if one listens very carefully, the conscious mind is distracted from the message by music or some other cover sound.
Standard silent subliminals have messages cancelled out by strange tones or hours of nature sounds. But you can actually hear the messages in the Threshold Subliminals by listening carefully. The cover sound just distracts your conscious mind away from them.
But do Threshold Subliminal messages really work?
To explain the above in a simpler way: Threshold subliminal audio DOES WORK, because the affirmations are above the level of consciousness. Being able to hear the messages both consciously and unconsciously makes them much more effective.
Here is an example of how you absorb subliminal messages naturally. It’s the secret behind the effectiveness of the Threshold Subliminal technology:
You are in a noisy restaurant. The people at the next table are talking about a violent robbery in your town. You can consciously hear what they are saying, but you are consciously absorbed in the conversation with the people at your own table.
Therefore, while your consciousness is distracted from their conversation by your own conversation, whatever they are saying can slip into your subconscious mind. You don’t consciously register anything said by the people at the next table, as it is being said. But you do subconsciously absorb their message.
Later on someone mentions the robbery to you. Amazingly, you find that you already know all about it, but you just don’t know how or where you heard about it.
Threshold Subliminals use affirmations and suggestions that are mixed in with music or other cover sounds like binaural beats. The difference is that you can hear the affirmations. They are recorded at a volume that is much lower than the cover sound. You have to listen carefully to hear them. But they are not cancelled out by the cover sound, as with silent subliminals.
The music is there to engage and distract your conscious mind. You are soothed and entertained with beautiful music as the positive suggestions are injected into your subconscious mind.
Does Threshold Subliminal messaging work in the real world? It did for Ronnie, and it can for you.
Ronnie H. needed to lose 35 pounds. In the past, hypnosis had worked well for her for weight loss. However, Ronnie worked many hours and didn’t have time to listen to her hypnosis audio daily.
Ronnie had tried traditional silent subliminals. But she wondered, “Do subliminal messages work?” They hadn’t worked for her in the past.
She purchased the Threshold Subliminal program online after she heard it resembled a mild form of hypnosis. Ronnie allowed the soft music of the Threshold Subliminals to play in the background, while she was working. With them, she was able to lose the extra 35 pounds of weight and keep it off.
Threshold Subliminals will replace your negative inner thoughts with positive, empowering thoughts. You will become the person you want to look like, sound like, feel like, and act like.
Recordings run between 19 and 24 minutes. They can be looped to run indefinitely. Some even offer music you can dance to.
Threshold Subliminals are available for many different purposes; from weight loss to organizational skills. Imagine what it is that you want to change about yourself. Then, pick out a program that offers what you need.
For example, the Threshold Subliminal download for Quick Weight Loss will program your subconscious mind with the following suggestions:
• My body burns off fat
• I eat the right foods
• My body is efficient

Now that you know how subliminal messages work, you can use Threshold Subliminal messages in music to work for you while you go about your life.
