You’ve been being brainwashed your whole entire life! From the moment you were born, you have been being exposed to some amount of mind control. One of the definitions of “Brainwashing” is: “the forcible and full scale alteration of a person’s beliefs”.

Dr. Lechnar, a member of Red Ice Creations, has conducted many studies about the brainwashing effect of the advertising industry.

“The advertising industry, a prominent and powerful industry, engages in deceptive subliminal advertising which most of us are unaware of. By bypassing our unconscious mind using subliminal techniques- advertisers tap into the vulnerabilities surrounding our unconscious mind, manipulating and controlling us in many ways. Since the 1940’s subliminal advertising blossomed until now, when you can find subliminals in every major advertisement and magazine cover. “

Techniques for How to Mitigate the Negative Effects of Brainwashing:

Simple Ways: Turn off your Television! Limit your exposure! Seek out Multiple and Reliable Independent News Resources. Read more! There are so many amazing books out there on virtually any subject in the world. With one touch of a computer keyboard, you have more potential access to information than ever in the history of time. It is unfortunate that most people are moving at such a rapid pace in their daily lives that they limit their news and information to very narrow news sources and “sound bites”. Conduct your own research. Get several opinions.

In his book, “In a World of Ads, Teaching the Young How to Read Them”, Stuart Elliott says: Advertising is all around you, always ask three questions: “Who is responsible for the ad? What is the ad actually saying? What does the ad want me to do?”

Huffington Post writer David Vognar has done a significant amount of research regarding the ways in which culture and social influence limit your ability to think and act independently.

“Cultures don’t want you to get out of the collectivism because if you do, you’re no longer providing for the collectivism of the culture. Carl Jung says you have to move into individuation in order to grow, but the culture will punish you by shame, abandonment, or betrayal.

We are designed to pay attention to “culture editors,” people in the culture with a lot of power (mother, teacher, etc.). We pay attention to when we feel comfortable or uncomfortable and we create perceptions as we grow and develop. While over time, you may move into a new culture of influence, it’s the original culture editors (e.g., family), that still have the most power.

Culture is like the unacknowledged water to a fish or the oxygen we breathe.”

Longevity studies show that healthy and active centenarians exhibit the trait of being “non conformists”. They have naturally figured out a way to live just outside of the culturally acceptable “norm”.

They follow their own inner wisdom and rely on their own experiences and intuition. They continue doing what they love to do. They keep working and being participatory and active. They don’t buy into the cultural pressure or brainwashing about the concept of “Retirement” and what it looks like to “grow old”. They stay engaged and continue to create new goals, projects and Dreams!

Rob Dial, motivational speaker and coach has a fantastic idea. He thinks you should Brainwash Yourself! Imagine for one moment- what would happen if you were to take control of the messaging that you consciously allow. What if you were to begin to be impeccably selective about the programs you watch, the books you read, the activities you engage in and the company you keep?
