I have written extensively about subliminal audio elsewhere on the blog, and I'll link that article later down the page, but I wanted to write on this specifically as I've had a number of enquires regarding SubliminalGuru.com.
Most of these questions pertain to whether or not I use their audios, how this tech works, and why the audio (voice) is “silent”.
I put the word “silent” in inverted commas because actually it isn't but appears so because you don't hear the voice – it's inaudible.
So I thought it would be useful to review the company in a Q&A format, to make sure I cover all the obvious questions, and to break down what for some can be a little confusing.
For the record, I do have a number of their audios. I've become quite a fan of subliminal audio in the last couple of years, and done a lot of research in this area – not just on audio but imagery, too.
Anyway, let's get into it.
What Is Subliminal Guru?
SG is a store that sells subliminal recordings. In a nutshell, this is audio that you can't hear but is perceived by your subconscious mind.
The audio contains positive affirmations, but these are masked from your conscious, hearing mind.
First a person records the positive affirmations using a normal voiceover with a microphone. Once the recording is finished the audio engineer filters the recording above the human hearing threshold, so that you don't actually hear the voice when you play it back.
They usually filter the audio up to about 18-20 kHz, because anything above this level is difficult for most humans to hear. The average human hears 20 Hz to 20 Khz, but with age our ability to hear the higher end of the frequency spectrum diminishes.
However, the vibrations of the sound are still present and still travel into the ear canal and to your brain. But because you are not conscious of what is being said and can't hear the affirmations, the messaging bypasses your conscious mind and goes through to your subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind is what we want to be trained. And here's why…
What Is Special About the Subconscious Mind?
The subconscious mind is where all your beliefs – dictated by life experiences – are stored.
It's like a huge computer database. It stores positive and negative beliefs that feed the conscious mind and tell you how to behave.
For example: Let's say you fell off a bike a broke your leg when you were little. That experience is stored in your subconscious mind as bike = dangerous = potential pain. In this case, in the future you might avoid riding a bike unless you really have to.
Similarly, you might have a fear of spiders because one once crawled up leg in bed. So you have anxiety about spiders being in your room at bedtime, and your subconscious belief is that a spider could be lurking at any time.
The resulting behavior might be that you regularly check your room for spiders and spray repellent around your bed to prevent another occurrence of the same incident.
Or, perhaps kids took the mickey out of you at school for being chubby. And, even though you're a healthy weight now, you have low self-esteem issues because your subconscious mind is feeding your conscious mind the belief that you are still chubby.
The resulting behavior might be that you wear baggy clothes to hide your figure, and have issues with your partner seeing you naked.
Subliminal Guru's audios target negative beliefs like this and seek to reprogram them with positive beliefs.
So instead of your inner voice telling yourself you're scared, fat, addicted, or whatever the issue might be, the audios will be telling you the opposite.
The positive messaging will help you overcome the negatives mindset that holds you back in life and keeps you rooted in the same behaviors and outcomes.
How Long Does Subliminal Guru Take to Work?
As I always say, when it comes to audio therapy, the results really do vary between people. Everyone is different and some people see results quickly while others take a little longer to experience change.
In my experience, I'd say you will feel/see noticeable improvement in your chosen area within 2 weeks. After this time, the results will become more profound and permanent.
That said, it depends on the depth of the negativity or trauma you are trying to heal. Listen consistently and try to be patient.
Are the Tracks Silent?
No, although you won't hear the voice on any of the six tracks provided, except one – there is a 7th track which features audible affirmations to mix things up a bit.
On the other tracks you will still hear music.
Each downloadable album comes with 6 x 10-minute MP3 sessions.
That's six subliminal tracks in different musical styles, to help match your mood. This includes:
- Acoustic mix
- Brown Noise mix
- Rainfall mix
- Relaxation mix
- Stream mix
- Workout mix
Just listen to whichever suits your mood at the time.
Remember, the reason you don't hear subliminal audio is because it is inaudible to the human ear. That being said, those with good hearing will be able to pick up high frequency sounds on the subliminal tracks.
If you do pick up on those high frequencies it will sound a little bit like a cricket in a field, but higher in frequency. That proves that the audio is playing but because it has been filtered above the human hearing threshold you can't decipher what it is saying.
Are the Results Permanent?
Yes, because you are making changes to fundamental beliefs and patterns of thinking (and the behaviors that arise as a result) that have been with you for many years. It's quite like hypnosis in that regard.
That said, you should always return to work on specific problem areas. Old programming can be triggered again by new circumstances, so it's important to reinforce the positive patterns of thinking.
Is There Any Evidence Subliminal Messaging Works?
Yes. It has been used for decades in image and audio form by brands and governments. Read my in-depth article on subliminal programming here.
Do I Need to Speak English to Benefit?
All the Subliminal Guru tracks are created in English, so you will need to speak English to a good level of understanding to benefit from the programs.
If you are able to read the script on the product page of the album you want to buy then that's a green light that you will be able to benefit.
What Subliminal Recordings Should I Start With?
The best place to start is to identify what you struggle with.
Perhaps stick to 2-3 areas to begin with, just so you don't overload your subliminal training. Then listen for 2 weeks, every day. Once you notice improvements you can move onto another area.
Personally I struggle with anxiety, and more recently focus, but perhaps you struggle with confidence, weight loss, focus, procrastination, or a phobia of some kind.
Subliminal Guru offers albums for numerous categories, including but not limited to:
- Weight Loss
- Personal development
- Life success
- Money and wealth
- Business success
How Do I Download & Listen to the Audio?
You will receive links to download .mp3 files of your purchases. Mp3 files are audio files compatible with all devices.
You can download the tracks to your computer, phone, or tablet. You can also transfer the files from your computer to an mp3 player, if you use one.
How Long Should I Listen For?
Once a day at a minimum, at least for the first two weeks. The key to success with any type of audio therapy/entrainment is consistency.
You can listen more than once a day, though. For example, some people listen for a few hours at a time while they work.
Can I Listen While I Sleep?
Yes, this is ideal.
Research shows the brain is very receptive to new information while in a state of sleep. This is because it is easier to gain access to the subconscious mind when you are in a sleep state.
Do I Need Headphones for the Messaging to Be Effective?
You don't need to use headphones but I personally think it is a good idea.
When you use headphones you block out external noise and distractions and allow a better flow of information through the ears and to the brain.
Is There a Subliminal Guru Have an App?
No. You download your audios directly from the website and then share them between your devices.
What Is the Subliminal Guru Refund Policy?
They offer a no questions asked money-back guarantee within 14 days. But you can only refund a maximum of 5 albums per year. Fair enough.
Is Subliminal Audio Safe for Children & Pregnant Women?
Yes. It is completely safe. It is literally just positive audio messages (inaudible).
