What Are You Doing to Counteract the 25,000 Negative Messages You're Bombarded with Daily?

Nov 28, 2007
You've probably heard the statistics and maybe turn the TV off more, yet what are you really doing to counteract all he non-supportive and negative programming you're exposed to every day?

Experts agree on average you're hit with 25,000 advertising messages a day, from TV and movie commercials to product placement to e-mails to bilboards to radio spots to popups and web site ads to T-shirts and caps people wear to direct mail to newspaper ads to display ads on buses and park benches to even ad wraps on cars.... we're awash in ads. Whew that's a mouthful, yet it only scratches the surface, as you know.

That would be OK if all these messages were just telling you what's available and if it's something you want, you can buy it or get more information on it. Except these advertisers know how busy you are and in many cases don't care about or respect you, they just want the almighty dollar - so they compete for your attention by scaring you, or worse, doing everything they can to make you feel inadequate the way you are.

(If you have any doubt about what I'm saying, critically watch TV for 20 or 30 minutes and don't so much pay attention to what they say, watch in particular the visual message they're subliminally spreading.... "If you're not as beautiful and thin and sexy and stunning as this model who altered her body to look like this, there's something wrong with you and you need to take these pills, apply this ointment, use this potion, get this treatment and have this surgery for people to like you.")

That's not really much of an exaggeration, although it goes much deeper than that, because the media itself competes harshly to get you in front of the screen to watch those ads (they do call it TV programming for a reason, you know). And they get you glued to the sets by doing everything they can to shock you, scare you, alarm you, make you think you're unknowingly doing something harmful or in imminent danger, or that the food you're eating is unsafe, your neighbor is unsafe, your car is unsafe... in other words, taking away your security and quite literally programming you with scarcity/fear/lack.

All these things of course have profound negative consequences, for example one study revealed that 90 percent of women surveyed admitted having issues with low self-esteem, and I bet if men were surveyed too, the numbers would be similar.

All this negative programming - I call it 'radiation' - going into people, it can only have harmful effects. And if you look at the average person, he or she is under a lot of stress, pretty much exhausted, not eating well, fairly unfulfilled and generally unhappy.

That's not how anyone's supposed to live. In fact, each of us are meant to be happy, confident, secure, loving and loved, in good health, at peace and in balance, and fulfilled. And we're meant to have as much money, job-satisfaction, free time and all the finer things that we desire.

All that you want you are meant to have. And in fact it's your responsibility and obligation to have it, because our strong desires come from deep within us for the sole purpose of being expressed and reflected in our lives.

So let me ask you again, what are you consciously doing to counteract the 25,000 non-supportive and even destructive messages you're being bombarded with each day?

This is obviously an important question because this is your life we're talking about here, and if you're not right now as happy, successful, wealthy and fulfilled as you'd like to be, then this negative programming has taken its toll on you and has at least up until now limited, blocked or prevented you from having the life you're meant to have.

I strongly suggest that you do what it takes - beginning right now - to change that.

First of all, turn off the TV. You'll be far better off not being "caught up in the drama" that only brings you down and causes you to have more anxiety and fear.

Second of all, look at the advertising critically. For example next time you're buying groceries and see all the 102 pound cover women (they're not really girls, although society calls them that, as an even more subtle aspect of this programming) - ask yourself when's the last time you really saw anyone who looked like that. Is it realistic to hold that as the ideal, if it's something unattainable? Would it really make sense for you to invest your self-image in that ideal, or would it make more sense for you to love yourself the way you are and love your partner the way he or she is, too, and focusing instead of on the superficial things, on the qualities about yourself and your partner that truly matter?

Ask yourself questions continuously about the things you're feeding your mind with - does this truly support my goals, wants, desires and needs, or would I be better off shifting my focus on something which would better serve me?

And then keep in mind that it's really just a numbers game. Last night I was almost shocked when I did the calculation - did you realized that over the course of just one year, the 25,000 negative messages a day adds up to 9,125,000. How many have you been unconsciously exposed to over the last 10 years? 20 years? Your whole life?

So even beyond minimizing and critically examining the messages you're consciously aware of, I also believe you need to directly counteract the non-supportive programming with your own positive, empowering programming.

For example, I'm using my computer most of the day, and I have a Custom Subliminal Software feeding my mind with positive messages once a second, or 60 times a minute, which comes out to 3,600 times an hour. Knowing you've already unknowingly ingested 9,125,000 negative, disempowering messages over just the last year, you get the sense of how powerful it would be to counteract that, for example by using your favorite subliminal software. By flashing an empowering message once a second for 10 hours a day, that 36,000 messages a day adds up to 13,140,000 messages over the course of a year - far more than offsetting the negative programming.

And if you eliminate two-thirds of the negative stuff, you can only imagine how much more successful, happy - positive - and fulfilled you'll be as a result.

Keep that in mind, as you're creating a better life for yourself!
