Alright so let’s continue... © 2011 Dino Ruales – What subliminal messages aren’t We all have heard of them “Subliminal messages”. It’s fascinating to think we can enter commands to our minds and use them to our own benefit. It’s frightening to think that we can be influenced by commands put into our brain by something or someone without us noticing. But before you run to put your tin foil hat on let’s recap what subliminal messages are not: • They are not means to brainwash your mind and make you act like a robot. • They won’t make you do things you don’t want to do. • They don’t work too well on people that don’t have the same intent included in the message. So basically in order for a subliminal message to work, it needs to be in alignment with the person’s desires. Many experiments confirm this observation, yet there is still that “what if” question that makes us uneasy about being “controlled” by an invisible hand. This has led to much controversy and even the banning of subliminal messages in advertising in 1974. So what are they and do they work? Subliminal message: Is a signal or message, some times embedded in another object, designed to pass below the normal limits of perception. These messages are indiscernible to the conscious mind, but are perceptible to the subconscious or deeper mind: for example, an image transmitted so briefly that it is only perceived subconsciously, but not otherwise noticed. How do we know that our brain perceives subliminally? Laboratory research has explored the extent to which subliminal stimulation is reaching our brain. Latest studies show that subliminal messages do enter the brain. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Scientists at the University College London (UCL) have found physiological evidence that invisible subliminal images do attract the brain’s attention on a subconscious level. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the study looked at whether an image a viewer wasn't aware of - but one that reached the retina - had an impact on brain activity in the primary visual cortex. The result is that the brain is logging subliminal images that attract our attention without us having the impression of having seen anything. Similar studies have been conducted with sound waves bordering the human perception levels (20Hz to 20kHz). Now the question is does our brain understand the messages and is there an impact on our behavior? The truth is that in order for messages to influence us: 1) Need to have a meaning to the receptor. 2) Need to associate to something we know or feel 3) Have to reinforce a desire. A message being caught by your subconscious, but not being understood will do little effect. For example receiving messages in Chinese and you don’t speak the language. An interesting effect here is that if you later learn Chinese, the previous subliminal messages stored in your mind will start to make sense. Even if the message is understood, an association to our reality is important. Take the message: “The house must be white”. Wait a minute, what house? If you where to paint your house, now it would make sense to your subconscious and an inclination towards white would be set. To be more effective a message has to endorse a desire. If you are opposed to a goal, the messages won’t have great effect. Up to now there is no hard evidence that subliminal messages make you do things you don’t want to. What about messages in commercials and advertising? If you see a movie where many scenes show for example a Pepsi can in the background, maybe you didn’t really notice it, but your mind recorded it. Yet it doesn’t mean you are going to run out and buy Pepsi. Although if you where thirsty an association will be made. When you go for a drink and are deciding what to buy, a Pepsi soft drink would be a stronger choice than before. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Affirmations are the best way to encourage yourself to bring to reality the outcome of a desired goal. Through our life our conscious mind forms beliefs, and many times those beliefs are negative and form a barrier. Many times we don’t achieve goals because we think we are not able. Subliminal affirmations bypass that barrier and tell the subconscious to change that belief to what we want to be our new belief. In this case subliminal messages are effective! Take a real conscious desire and make it meet with a subconscious affirmation and bingo! That’s when the magic happens and your behavior changes effectively towards reaching the goal. Tips for writing affirmations Before you can record your subliminal messages you need to think about what you are going to say and write them down. As I said before the best form for a message is an Affirmation. Simply put and affirmation is a positive sentence that asserts or declares that something is true. If you’ve never heard of affirmations, well want it or not let me tell you we all practice affirmations. In one way or another we are constantly talking to ourselves, some quietly, some in thoughts and even some of us out loud. We tell ourselves what we have to do during the day, what we would like to become, and even sometimes we punish ourselves with words. Those words have an impact on our every day lives, sometimes good, and sadly sometimes bad. But you can change that because affirmations, when worded correctly, offer an unlimited creative power to manifest your goals and desires. © 2011 Dino Ruales – So here are simple tips for writing affirmations: • Think about the goal you want to achieve. Let’s say for example you want a job promotion. Write positive sentences that: o Talk about what is needed to get there. e.g. “When I do my job I exceed everybody’s expectations” o Talk about what would it feel to reach the goal: e.g. “I’m so happy to be recognized” o Think as if you already reached the goal, you are living it now: e.g. “I’m enjoying very much my new promotion” • Keep the sentences positive. Try to avoid negative thoughts and words like: no, don’t, can’t, not, etc. Also keep them short. • State the sentences in the present. As if everything is happening now. You may use a future tense but be sure to be explicit on when it will become true. • Normally affirmations are stated in first person: “I am..”, “I can..” And it’s also a good idea to state them in second person: “You are..”, “You can..”. Using your name is also a good idea (especially when you are open to other people’s advice, it’s powerful to use second or third person affirmations). Say your name was Bob, you would write: “Bob is the best”, “Bob is rising fast in the company” • And finally put passion and emotion: Affirmations that evoke your emotions and that are goals you are passionate about will increase the effect tenfold. © 2011 Dino Ruales – So you wanna put your own subliminal messages in an audio recording? Maybe burn a CD or have MP3 files to listen on your PC. If it were the 80’s this task would cost you thousands of dollars. Nowadays it will cost you nothing! Isn’t that great! Well the cost in money is zip, but you need to put some time into doing a bit of recording and editing of sound files. Or if you like things done fast you may opt for inexpensive software that will do the job for you. It’s up to you; I’ll show you both ways to do it. So first let’s see the common techniques used to accomplish a subliminal recording and then I’ll show you step by step how to create a full subliminal recording. Subliminal messages can be transmitted through various means. The most common are by visual means and by aural means. But really any physical sense we have can act as a pathway for a subliminal message to go to your subconscious. In this ebook we will focus on subliminal messages by audio. The idea is that the message should be formatted in such a way that is transmitted without being caught or understood by the conscious mind, but reaching the subconscious. © 2011 Dino Ruales – The Low Amplitude Mix Technique This method is based on one of the first recorded uses of subliminal messages, called whisper therapy. The idea was to whisper suggestions to a subject at a level barely noticeable by the conscious mind. So as you can see low amplitude is a fancy way of saying low volume. For this method you would take a file containing foreground sound, that is music, nature sounds, etc. and mix in the subliminal messages at a low volume. When you listen to the recording your brain will perceive both sounds but the louder sound prevails as being more obvious to the conscious mind, while the low volume sound bypasses directly to the subconscious. So the foreground sound “masks” or “hides” the background messages. This is the most widely used method of creating subliminal CDs. But this is slowly changing and going towards the next technique presented. The Silent Subliminal Technique This method is based on transforming normal speech sound frequencies to higher or lower frequencies that are just about on the borders of the human audible spectrum. Some methods modulate frequency and amplitude (similar to what radio stations do). Other methods manipulate the sound data’s pitch and speed. What is accomplished is a sound wave that is perceptible only subconsciously. You may ask: If it’s silent then how do I hear it? Well it’s sort of a contradiction isn’t it? Well it’s called silent because it gives you the impression that there is nothing more than silence, but there are vibrations that are moving your ear drum and nervous endings. If you listen carefully you may hear a slight buzz, some white noise. If you play the sound in a computer you can see the frequency graph playing something that you’re not hearing (consciously). © 2011 Dino Ruales – This method is being used more and more in subliminal CDs. This silent sound doesn’t need any foreground sound to act as a “mask”. But it can be mixed with music without interfering each other. The Stereo Confusion Technique As it’s name states, this technique tries to confuse the brain, not letting the conscious mind to understand the message clearly. A sound in stereo (stereophonic) means that there are two or more channels of sound. Your home audio reproduction system is normally known as a.. you got it: Stereo, because sound is played through independent channels. Each speaker or headphone side (left, right) are independent channels. The idea is to send one message to the left ear and a different one to the right, at the same time. The conscious mind will try to understand but, if it’s done correctly, it will be “confused” and will discard the message. On the other hand the subconscious deciphers the 2 messages immediately. This method is most effective using headphones and crafting the messages especially for each ear (left and right). Why? Because it’s been widely researched that your left side of the brain processes sound entering your right ear and vice versa and in turn each side of the brain processes better different kinds of stimuli. © 2011 Dino Ruales – The Vocoder Technique Vocoder stands for “Voice Encoder”. In this method the spoken messages are encoded to mimic the waveform of the foreground sound (music, nature sounds, etc). So if you would encode the spoken message with let’s say ocean sounds, you would hear the message as if where spoken with an ocean sounding voice. So that coded voice when mixed together with the ocean sound foreground, blends together masking it and making the messages not easily perceptible consciously. Many audio software packages include the Vocoder functionality. It let’s you apply some really cool sounding voice effects, and of course let’s you encode your affirmations inside music or any other sound file. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Ok! Now that you know about subliminal messages and the techniques for creating them in audio files, we can pull up our sleeves and get down to business. I’m going to show you step by step how to mix your messages using two of the mentioned techniques. How to Mix Using the Low Amplitude Mix Technique The following instructions have an up side and a down side (like many things in life). On the up side: You can do this spending $0 bucks! But on the down side you need some time to learn about the mixing software and manipulating the sound files. Ok let’s start. Step 1) Download the software The software we’re going to use is called Audacity. You can get it at: Go ahead, download and install it. Step 2) Write down your affirmations Check out the tips we talked about previously and go ahead and write your affirmations. 10 affirmations per goal is a good number. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Step 3) Record your affirmations First you need a microphone plugged into your PC. Check that the microphone’s volume is set at a normal level. For this, on Windows go to the Control Panel, Double click on “Sound and Audio Devices”. On “Sound Recording” Click on “Volume” and set the volume, I’d say to 40% or 50% level is ok. © 2011 Dino Ruales – The next step is to run the Audacity software. Go ahead and open it. First thing to notice are the control buttons. Just like a VCR. On the upper right find the microphone volume slider. Set it to 50%. Have your written affirmations ready. You are going to record them at normal speaking speed, try to read them naturally and clearly. Stay in silence for 2 seconds between each affirmation. Now hit the Record button (the red circle) and start saying the affirmations. You should see the audio wave forming. If you see a flat line, then something is wrong with your mic. Check the volume, if it’s on, plugged in and in working order. © 2011 Dino Ruales – This is how the screen should look like. When you’re finished click on the Stop button (square) If you want to hear the recording, use the Play button. Did you mess up? Don’t worry we all do the first time :) If you want to start over you need to delete the Audio track. So look on the left side of the Audio wave, you will see some text that says “Audio Track”, and to the left there is an “X” button. Click it and the track is gone. Now you are ready to give it a shot again. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Ok so you’ve recorded the affirmations. Let’s save them to a file. This is a good idea in case you want to use these affirmations later to mix with other music or sounds. On the Audacity menu Click on File->Export As WAV OR File->Export As MP3. Choose the one you prefer. A Wav file is a clearer sounding file, because it keeps all the information about the sound wave. But it uses a lot of space in your hard drive. Nowadays PCs and laptops come with plenty disk space so that shouldn’t be a problem. On the other side you can export to MP3, which loses some quality but saves space. So it’s up to you to choose any format you like. * A note on Mp3. Audacity by default doesn’t support exporting to mp3. You may need to enable it. Just follow the instructions on Audacity’s webpage or help file to enable mp3 support. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Step 4) Import the foreground sound Now it’s time to import the foreground sound. Normally it would be music, nature or relaxing sounds. I recommend the later since they set your mind at a relaxed state which lets the messages flow in easier. If you have the tracks on a CD you’re going to need to save them to your computer. The instructions for this are not covered in this report, but it’s really easy to do it. I recommend you to download a software called CDex. You can find it here: So once you have the music or sound file in your computer go to Audacity and select on the upper menu: Project->Import Audio... You can select your file here and click OK. Wait a few seconds for the file to be imported. You should see something like this: © 2011 Dino Ruales – Step 5) Even out the length of the files. As you may have noticed, your affirmations file is shorter than the foreground file. So we need to extend the affirmation file, making it repeat the affirmations all through the duration of the foreground file. There are several different ways to do this operation. The following, I think, is the easiest way: Click anywhere on the Audio track containing the affirmations. Click the Rewind button (remember the control buttons?) Select from the menu: Edit->Select...->Cursor to End You should see that the wave is highlighted. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Now press on your keyboard the keys: Ctrl-C OR on the menu select: Edit->Copy Now press the Forward button Now press on your keyboard the keys: Ctrl-V OR on the menu select: Edit->Paste You should see that you copied the affirmations and pasted them at the end, so now you repeated the affirmations once. Now click again on the Forward button Now press on your keyboard the keys: Ctrl-V OR on the menu select: Edit->Paste You repeated once again the affirmations. Keep doing the Forward button and Ctrl-V thing until you reach the same length of the foreground file. Of course it would be difficult to coincide exactly with the end of the foreground sound, so you may overpass it a bit. © 2011 Dino Ruales – So now we need to cut that edge out. To do this you can place the cursor over the affirmations wave just at the part where you want it to end, click and drag to the end. You will see you are highlighting the part of the wave we want to delete. Now press on your keyboard: Ctrl-X , OR select from the menu Edit->Cut Voila! You should have your tracks with the same length and your affirmations will repeat through out the foreground sound. © 2011 Dino Ruales – But wait! We are not ready yet. Go ahead and hit the Rewind button and then Play. You will probably hear the affirmations and the music at the same time, but the affirmations are noticeable. We need to lower their amplitude (volume) in order to make the foreground “mask” the affirmations. Step 6) Editing the amplitude of the affirmations. Ok so for this part there is an easy way and the not so easy way (but more flexible). Let’s start with the easy way. On the affirmations Audio track you will find 2 slider controls. The first one is the track volume (amplitude). Move the slider down to -6 dB and hit the Play button. You should hear the foreground sound louder than the affirmations. Still hear the affirmations clearly? Reduce the volume a bit more and check again. Important: Keep tweaking the volume until you hear the affirmations just slightly. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Listen to the whole track and you will notice that you can’t pick up on what the affirmations are saying; just the foreground sound is the noticeable sound. Try to not “hide” the affirmations completely (like turning their volume way too low), just as low for you to keep listening a whisper of the affirmations. The not so easy way. Not all sounds have the same volume all through their duration. At some points the foreground may sound louder and at others softer. So you may find the situation that at some points the affirmations become clearly noticeable. For this you may edit manually the amplitude through out the affirmations track. To do this click on the Envelope Tool button. You will see that on the tracks appear little white dots. Go to the affirmations wave and place the cursor over one of them, click and drag up or down. See how the wave increases or decreases in amplitude (vertical length). Play a while with that and notice that the smaller the vertical length means lower volume. So you can edit different parts of the affirmation track to increase or decrease the volume according to the foreground track. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Something like this: You will need a bit of time to tweak listen and tweak some more to find a good volume combination (told you it wasn’t so easy). So when you’re happy with the result, it’s time to mix them together. Step 7) Mixing and Saving We’ve recorded the affirmation file, included the foreground file, matched the length of both files, and tweaked the volume of the affirmations. Now the final step is to complete the mix. To do the mix select from the menu: Project->Quick Mix You will see that now you have only one resulting track containing the mix of both waves. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Go ahead and click the Play button to confirm the resulting sound. If by any chance you are still not satisfied, you can select Edit->Undo Quick Mix, and tweak the affirmations again. Now you need to decide which format you want to save the mixed file to. The Wav format keeps the quality of the sound, and when we are dealing with subliminal messages sound quality is important. Also this format is the one to choose if you want to burn the mixed track to an audio CD. The down side is that it uses a lot of disk space. If you want to save as Wav, on the menu select: File->Export As Wav. Select the location on your disk drive, click OK and your all set. A more popular format is the MP3 format. It’s lightweight and lets you take your music on portable devices. The only problem is that it loses sound quality. So if you want to save as MP3 we need to change some quality settings. On the menu select: Edit->Preferences Go to the “File Formats” tab. Find the “MP3 Export Setup” section and select Bit rate: 192 And click OK © 2011 Dino Ruales – * A note on Mp3. Audacity by default doesn’t support exporting to mp3. You may need to enable it. Just follow the instructions on Audacity’s webpage or help file to enable mp3 support. Next select: File->Export As MP3. Select the location on your disk drive, click OK A window will appear asking for info on the MP3, it’s optional. Click OK and the MP3 file will be saved. That’s it! With practice you will mix your own files faster. And if you explore the Audacity program a bit you can include effects to your affirmations like Echo, Compression or noise removal. © 2011 Dino Ruales – How to Mix Using the Silent Subliminal Technique This technique is becoming the method of choice for many producers of subliminal audio recordings. It’s considered more effective than the low volume method, since it doesn’t need a foreground sound to mask it and even if it’s mixed with a sound, frequencies from that sound will not interfere with the subliminal sound. For this method we are going to use the Mindzoom Subliminal Mixer. You can find it at It comes included with Mindzoom’s Subliminal Affirmations Software. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Ok now this one is not free, but it’s pretty inexpensive AND it’s so easy to use that you’ll enjoy making many subliminal recordings with no effort and in no time. The Mindzoom Subliminal Mixer has 4 quick steps to create your subliminal audio file. Step 1) Load the foreground (base) sound The Base sound is the file you want to mix with the subliminal messages; It's the sound file that you are going to listen to after mixing. It would normally be a music file, environmental or relaxing sounds, maybe a spoken e-book. To load it just click the Load button and select the file from your hard drive. Click OK when ready and the file should load. You can load files of the following sound formats: WAV or MP3 Step 2) Load the subliminal sound Click the Load button and you will see various options for obtaining the subliminal messages. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Here you have 3 different options: Option 1. Affirmation Files You may select among the many pre-loaded affirmation files that come with the Mindzoom Software. How many can I choose? There is no limit, but it is recommended to only choose one or two with related affirmations. Focusing on one goal at a time is the fastest way for achievement. Option 2. Record New The "Record New" option lets you record the subliminal messages with your own voice, just as we learned in the previous section. Before recording, plan on the phrases you will record. The best way is for you to write them down and just read them out clearly when recording. It is recommended to write them as affirmations. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Affirmations are the best way to induce your mind to the desired goal. About 10 short positively worded messages is all it takes. Check the previous section “Tips for writing affirmations” for more information. Option 3. Previously Recorded If you already have your affirmations file you can load it here. It's pretty straight forward, just select it from your hard drive and click OK to load the file. Step 3) Add binaural beat A binaural beat is an auditory phenomenon in which two audio tones played at different frequencies and entered separately into the brain (one through the left ear and the other through the right), are perceived as low-frequency pulsations or beats. These beats influence the brain into different states through the entrainment of brainwaves. This is that our brain has a natural tendency to change its dominant frequency towards the frequency of a dominant external stimulus. Read more about Binaural beats here: Alpha and Beta waves influence your brain to receive affirmations more easily. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Step 4) Mix and Save Once you loaded the base sound and the subliminal sound, you can see the waves in the wave viewer. Remember that in the section: “How to Mix Using the Low Amplitude Mix Technique” you had to manually even out the length of both sounds? Well this software does it automatically. It will repeat the subliminal messages all through the base sound. Ok so now just click MIX! Select the place and format to save. © 2011 Dino Ruales – I already mentioned this but I’m going to repeat it here: The Wav format keeps the quality of the sound, and when we are dealing with subliminal messages sound quality is important. Also this format is the one to choose if you want to burn the mixed track to a CD. The down side is that it uses a lot of disk space. The more popular format MP3 format is lightweight and lets you take your music on portable devices (like an Ipod). The only problem is that it loses sound quality. But Mindzoom saves to high quality MP3 to minimize data loss. Mindzoom uses its SSM (Silent Subliminal Messaging) Technology to embed the affirmations in the foreground sound. And you’re set! Repeat the steps to make more sound files containing your subliminal messages. © 2011 Dino Ruales – Tips for Writing to a CD Since there are a lot of CD/DVD writer software packages out there, step by step instructions for writing to a CD are out of scope for this report, but I can give you some initial tips. You can find dozens of tutorials just by doing a quick search in the internet on “how to write to a cd” or “how to burn a CD” You can write music files as data or as audio. When writing as data they are stored just like they are stored in your computer. Some CD players do play these types of discs but others don’t. When writing as audio they are stored like any other music CD and virtually any stereo with a CD player will play them. Normally to write as audio you need to have your files in the computer saved as .Wav, but some writers will take any type of audio file and transform it before burning. So check your writer software for that feature. Media quality is very important. You need good CD-R or CD-RW disks. Some writers will cough up the cheap disks and you will have a lot of failed attempts. By experience I would recommend Sony or Maxell disks. While writing is in progress, it is recommended to close all other programs. CD Writing is a resource intensive process, one byte off and it will fail. So let the computer write alone without any other programs running, that includes your web browser ;) © 2011 Dino Ruales – I hope you enjoyed this report and got a lot of good info out of it.
