General Product Questions
How are your products different than others I have seen?
Light of Mind has been known for groundbreaking transformational audio since 1985. We were one of the first companies to research and develop personal growth audio. Over the past 30 years, we have set the standard for the highest quality self-transformation audio and our advanced products have changed many thousands of people’s lives.
Our founders David & Steve Gordon are award-winning recording artists with over 2 million albums sold. They have used their mastery of sound design to create cutting-edge brain/mind audio that uses top production values to enhance the audio-experience beyond anything else you have heard. The music and nature sounds on Light of Mind audio are all from internationally released albums of relaxation music, several of which have charted in Billboard and won awards. We never use sound library music or
music-for-hire for our products.
The personal growth techniques used on Light of Mind audio are all developed by our team of mind power experts – human potential therapists, certified hypnotists, researchers, sound designers and meditation designers. Together they have created the finest catalog of self-change audio available anywhere. They draw upon their combined years of experience in human potential to create the most advanced series of transformational audio there is. In addition to being among the first pioneers in self-transformation audio, we also continue to bring our dedicated customers the very latest in brain/mind research. Our ground-breaking products have been seen in magazines such as Science Digest, Psychology Today, Discover and many others.
In addition to self-growth audio product types you may be familiar with, we also offer product lines that are exclusive to the Light of Mind website and feature amazing new concepts such as The Transcendence Experience and Reflective Self-Hypnosis Alpha level listen-anytime awake/sleep audio.

Where can I see who the narrator is on each album?
On each product page, the author name is displayed below the title of the product type, just below the main title of the product.
How to Use the Albums
How often should I listen to each audio download? Once per day or week?
For the best results, listen at least once every day for the first week.
You can listen more than once per day, but it is more important that you reinforce the programming every day than to listen more than in one day. After the first week you can start to reduce to every other day, every few days, once per week and then only once in a while to maintain your success.
Everyone will respond a little differently so let your listening frequency adjust to how what kind of results you are getting. If you are getting quick results you can start to listen a little less often and if the results are coming more slowly then listen more often until you see the changes you are looking for.
Can I listen to multiple albums?
Yes, you can listen to more than one album per day or per week. It’s up to your own personality and how listening to the downloads works for you personally. If you find that you can absorb the concepts and ideas in each product quickly and you find yourself able to focus on more than one that’s fine.
Monitor how you are feeling as your work with the downloads and how you are reacting. If it feels productive to listen to more than one then it probably is. But if you feel distracted or find you are not able to focus on the subjects you are listening to you may prefer to focus on fewer programs per day and alternate topics between different days instead.
Can I listen to a combination of different product types?
Yes, you can listen to as many different product types at a time or during a certain period as you wish. Using more than one product type can increase the effectiveness of the self-empowerment programming because the various techniques connect with your subconscious in different ways. For example, if you listen to a Reflective Self-Hypnosis album you are spending some time every day focusing on the area of improvement you have chosen. If you also listen to a couple of Subliminal Threshold Affirmations albums in addition, you can reinforce your improvement while you are going about your usual activities.
Each product type engages different parts of your inner mind. When you combine them, you give yourself greater opportunities for powerful improvement and faster results.
How long does it usually take to see results?
No matter which Light of Mind product you use, you will enjoy immediate benefits right away, within the first few days. Then, as you listen more each week, you will make the results stronger and more permanent.
The best way to use the transformational audio is to listen at least once per day for the first week so you can start to see improvement and changes in yourself. Each day as you listen more you will be reinforcing the positive programming so that your subconscious mind starts to accept them as being true on a deep level. When that starts to happen, your inner beliefs begin to transform and the changes to your thoughts and actions start to become part of your normal process.
You may find that a couple weeks is all you need to enjoy lasting benefits and changes. But to transform a behavior or attitude that has been a part of your personality for years, it could take longer. If this is the case then you may need to work with the audio sessions for a month or more before you see the results you are looking for and they become permanent.
It’s a good idea to return to listening to the downloads once in a while after that as a way of making sure you do not slip back into old behaviors. This makes the new patterns and beliefs you have established stay stronger than your previous unwanted ones.
Are the results I receive permanent?
Yes, research has shown that the results you obtain through techniques like self-hypnosis, affirmations and meditation can be permanent! It is your own inner power that makes the changes. When you listen to the self-empowerment audio programs enough for them to work for you, the changes can last forever.
Sometimes it can be hard for people to accept that their problems can be solved because they have struggled for a long time. But Light of Mind transformational audio works by helping you get to the root cause and replacing old limiting beliefs with new positive ones. When this is done, there is no limit to the powerful changes you can experience!
Is it OK to fall asleep while listening?
No matter which Light of Mind product type you are listening to, if you fall asleep it is OK. Your mind is very open and impressionable as you are falling asleep. This means that whatever audio you are listening to at that time will go directly to your subconscious mind. Then once you are asleep, there is part of your subconscious that is still able to take in the positive programming in the audio.
Some of the products are actually designed to listen either while awake or asleep and for those you can get even more benefit by adding some listening time while you are asleep. But if you are finding that you are regularly falling asleep during all the products not just the ones that are designed for sleep, then try sitting up when listening instead of laying down. This way you can get the benefits of listening while consciously taking in the programming as well.

Questions about Subliminals
What are subliminal messages?
Subliminal messages are words, phrases and affirmations that the subconscious mind can detect but the conscious mind is unaware of.
Since the first use of subliminal messages in advertising in the 1950’s the science of subliminal messages have continued to grow. It has been used to prevent shoplifting and continues to be used in both audio advertising and print advertising.
Because of the power of subliminal messaging to reach the subconscious mind, it also has been developed for self-improvement audio. It’s power for positive self-change has been thoroughly researched and proven to work.
Light of Mind was among the first to research and create self-transformation audio using subliminal messages back in 1985 and we continue to be at the forefront of this exciting method of self-change.
How do subliminals work for self-improvement?
If you imagine that your mind is like an iceberg, the small amount of the iceberg that you can see above the surface of the water is your conscious mind. The majority of the iceberg is under the water and can’t be seen. This is your subconscious mind.
Since childhood we have developed a system of beliefs that are buried in our subconscious minds. We are often not aware of them because like the iceberg, our subconscious mind is hidden below the surface.
Subliminal audio floods the subconscious with positive beliefs that re-program old unwanted beliefs with new positive beliefs.
All you consciously hear is music or nature sounds, but your subconscious “hears” the positive affirmations and acts on them.
As your old negative beliefs are replaced with new self-empowering ones, your life transforms and you become the successful person you really want to be.
How do I use your subliminal downloads?
The great thing about subliminal audio is that you can listen anytime during any activity. That means that unlike hypnosis where you need to put aside time for sitting down and doing a hypnosis session, instead you can let the subliminal audio play while you work, drive, exercise, relax, do chores around the house, study or whatever you choose. You can listen to them at bedtime and let them play while you sleep which is yet another way of conditioning your subconscious with positive affirmations.
You can listen to more than one subject at a time if you like. For example you can download a variety of programs, one for weight loss, for concentration and another for memory improvement or self-esteem. Then you can listen to the tracks from all the different albums you have downloaded every day or a few times a week.
The more you listen, the better they work because your subconscious hears more positive affirmations. At first the affirmations work to change your unwanted beliefs and then they work to reinforce your new positive beliefs.
What tracks do the subliminal download products contain? What will I hear?
There are six powerful tracks on every Subliminal Threshold Affirmations album.
Five of the tracks have a different music style you can use depending on your mood. These tracks are for background listening. At the start of each track, you will hear the subliminal affirmations on that track spoken audibly. Then for the rest of the track all you will hear is mind music which contains the same affirmations but your conscious mind will not hear them, you will only hear the music.
Plus there is a sixth bonus track with Alpha Relaxation Programming – a relaxing guided meditation that also contains the same Subliminal Threshold Affirmations as the other five tracks for additional reinforcement of the positive messages.
How long does it take to see results with subliminals?
You will begin to see results during the first few times you listen to them.
But to really experience the life-changing power of these recordings, it’s best to give them at least 2-3 weeks. After that you can continue occasionally to reinforce and maintain your self-improvement.
What will I feel as I listen to them?
The subliminal content does not create any particular feelings, though you will experience a variety of pleasant moods from the different types of Relaxation Music on the tracks. When listening to the Alpha Relaxation Guided Mediation tracks you will experience a soothing state of deep relaxation.
Is it possible to listen to them too much?
There is no danger in listening to them, no matter how much you listen.
Keep in mind that while you can listen to them as much as you want, as long as you listen to each album at least once or twice a day for 2-3 weeks they will start to be effective.
If you want to listen to them more than that it will provide additional reinforcement but is not necessary.
Can I listen while I sleep?
Yes, listening at bedtime is an another effective way to condition your subconscious mind with the positive messages on the recordings. The music on the programs is relaxing and works well at bedtime.
As you drift off to sleep, the subliminal messages permeate your subconscious mind deeply for maximum positive effect.
How are your subliminals different from others?
Light of Mind has pioneered the use of subliminal audio for self-improvement starting in 1985. Our products and research has been featured in magazines such as Psychology Today, Science Digest and Popular Science.
The methods used on our Subliminal Threshold Affirmations series are the results of 30 years of discovery, refinement and improvements. Our subliminals are light-years beyond the basic concept of subliminal audio because we use exclusive techniques that do not simply mask the positive messages. Instead we used computer-aided audio methods developed by David & Steve Gordon to fuse the affirmations with the music so only your subconscious can hear them and create the positive results.
- Advanced computer controlled subliminal message embedding keeps the sound level of the positive affirmations at the most optimal volume, just below your hearing threshold. This means that unlike other subliminal audio products, the level of the positive affirmations on Light of Mind subliminals gets louder or quieter along with the music. So the positive affirmations are always just below your hearing threshold no matter what the dynamics of each minute of the music – the positive affirmations follow precisely as loud as possible while still being just low enough not to be head by your conscious mind.
- Through an exclusive process, Light of Mind researchers “embed” positive affirmations such as “I am confident” within music or nature sounds. Unlike subliminal audio from other companies who simply make the volume level of the positive affirmations slightly lower than the level of the music, Light of Mind uses a breakthrough technique known as “vocal coding,” that allows the positive affirmations to actually become part of the music. This enables the conscious mind to receive the positive affirmations in a much more powerful way.
- Our research has found that when people hear the text of the subliminal messages that follow, the positive effects are greatly enhanced. This is because your conscious mind can then join with your subconscious in reprogramming your unwanted beliefs. By hearing the content of the subliminal messages in addition to those same positive messages subliminally encoded into the music you double the power of the messages. Also, by hearing the text of the subliminal messages, you stay in total control. For this reason every Subliminal Threshold Affirmation track starts with an audible introduction that contains the text of the subliminal messages on the recording.
- Soothing Relaxation Music on each track is specially designed by David & Steve Gordon based on body/mind/spirit synergy. This special relaxation music creates a peak of listener receptivity exclusive to Light of Mind.
- The bonus track with Alpha Relaxation Programming allows you to enter a guided meditation where you can reach a deep meditative state where the same positive affirmations are heard again both audibly and subliminally. No other subliminal audio has anything remotely like this.
How long is each subliminal album download?
Each Subliminal Threshold Affirmations album has 5 tracks with different musical styles plus a bonus track with a guided meditation. The average length of each album is one hour and 15 minutes.
Can I read the text of the subliminal affirmations on each download?
The complete text of the subliminal affirmations on each album are at the bottom of the product pages of each album on the Light of Mind website.
What is your position on the use of “negative” words in affirmations?
What our team has found from our extensive research and many years of positive results is that negative words can be used in affirmations as long as long as the context is positive.
Your subconscious is very intelligent and understands not just the meaning of individual words but the meaning of entire sentences. As long as the meaning of the sentence and the context of that sentence with the other sentences it is combined with is positive, then your subconscious will hear the positive meaning. As you listen over time, these new positive messages will replace your negative beliefs that are holding you back.
We have also found that using some negative words is more effective that avoiding them because by acknowledging what needs to change and how you will be different from now on, your subconscious believes the affirmation more.
If I burn a subliminal album to a CD does it still have the subliminals?
Yes, the audio files will still contain the subliminals if you burn them to a CD.
Will this actually work for me?
If you listen regularly for 2 to 3 weeks at different times during the day and evening, you will start to see the results you are looking for. Light of Mind has been helping people reach their goals with subliminal audio since 1985. If at any time, for some reason you feel they are not working for you we are happy to refund your purchase with no questions asked.
How are subliminal downloads different from hypnosis?
Both subliminal conditioning and hypnosis work by accessing the power of your subconscious mind. The difference is that with hypnosis you need to listen with your eyes closed and focus directly on the recording. With subliminal audio you can listen while you go about your usual activities. You will only hear the sound of music or nature sounds without any narration other than at the start of the track where you hear the affirmations one time.
You can listen to the tracks as you would use background music, while working, relaxing, driving, going to sleep or any way you wish. You don’t have to pay attention to them at all – the powerful positive affirmations embedded in the music are penetrating your subconscious mind and creating the changes you want.
Questions about Hypnosis
Can I wake up from hypnosis if I need to?
Hypnosis is nothing more than deep relaxation. You can easily open your eyes and end the session at any time you wish.
Can I get stuck in hypnosis and not be able to wake up?
It is not possible to get stuck in hypnosis! While you are listening, you can decide to end your session by simply opening your eyes and stretching your arms and legs a little. Hypnosis is similar to daydreaming. Your eyes are closed and you are using your imagination, but you can decide to stop at any time.
What if I am a person who can’t be hypnotized?
There is a myth out there that are some people who are super sensitive to being hypnotized and others who are un-hypnotizable. The truth is that hypnosis is just a form of deep relaxation where you are being guided into a relaxed receptive state so that you can access the power of your subconscious mind.
Anyone is capable of learning to relax and so anyone can become hypnotized. Everyone enters mild hypnosis at different times during the day – while reading an engrossing book, listening to certain music or watching a compelling TV show. The difference with hypnosis is that you use being in this relaxed but attentive state to change unwanted inner beliefs into new more positive ones.
Where should I listen to my Reflective Self-Hypnosis downloads?
The Reflective Self-Hypnosis series have two different kind of sessions – Theta Level and Alpha Level.
The Theta Level tracks are designed for you to listen where you won’t be disturbed and you can relax comfortably with your eyes closed. A big comfy chair or lying down in bed are both ideal. Do not drive while listening to Theta Level tracks. You can also listen when you go to bed and fall asleep while you listen.
The Alpha Level tracks are a new type of hypnosis that allows you to listen while only lightly relaxed while doing your usual activities during the day or night. You can also listen at bedtime as you fall asleep. Even though you are only lightly relaxed when listening to Alpha Level tracks, do not ever drive while listening to Alpha Level tracks.
How often should I listen to them?
This varies with each person. If you listen once and then only listen once in a while after that and achieve your goals of self-change that way then you don’t need to listen more.
But for most people we find it is best to listen once person until you see the changes you are looking for. After that listen about once a week to maintain your improvement if needed.
Some people keep listening after they achieve their goals because they enjoy the relaxation and the sound of our hypnotherapist’s voices.
Is it OK if I fall asleep?
You do need to be awake while listening so if you find you keep falling asleep while listening to the sessions, then try sitting up in a chair instead of lying down.
But if you are getting the amount of listening you need it can enhance their effectiveness if you schedule some additional listening at bedtime as you fall asleep. The subconscious mind is very receptive during the process of falling asleep, so if you listen at the time the positive suggestions and affirmations will penetrate deeply into your mind for the maximum results. Listening at bedtime is not required but if you enjoy listening then as an extra session, it can increase their effectiveness.
Will the positive changes last?
Self-hypnosis is a type of learning, so just like when you learn new skills, the changes and new behaviors you learn stay with you.
Not only that, when you improve in one area other parts of your life can improve as well because you get new insights and understanding.
Most of the negative beliefs and behaviors people have were created from one or two experiences in the past. Usually all it takes is focusing on new positive beliefs while in a receptive state of self-hypnosis to shift these negative beliefs to positive ones.
