Perhaps you’ve tried trading Forex and other markets using every possible strategy you could think of. Or maybe you’ve taken a few losses that have affected your trading psychology? Whether you realize it or not, our subconscious mind plays a substantial role on our everyday lives – this includes trading. We are what we believe we are and these are tips that will help you understand how to better your trading success by reprogramming your subconscious mind.
How much do you currently know about subliminal messages, how they work and how they can help you attain success? Do you know how to stop letting your emotions take over you and stop being nervous while trading? To accomplish these results, you need to know how to reprogram and convince your mind so that your subconscious can begin working for you instead of against you to achieve maximum success.
Forex, foreign exchange, or just FX, is the largest financial market to date. The daily turnover has risen from an average of $5 billion back in 1977, to a massive $5.4 trillion (and growing) US dollars, today. No other market or industry even comes close.
Looking at the sheer size of the Forex market, our brains are even bigger! The subconscious mind learns fast, soaking up knowledge like a sponge, however, it absorbs everything it comes across which even includes the negative and potentially damaging information that’s out there.
Our conscious, known as that little voice we hear in our heads “for those of us who aren’t crazy”, and our conscious a protection mechanism that sort of filters or screens information, thoughts, and all the noise you hear, see, smell, or touch, and our conscious mind decides what it will let through to the subconscious.
Sigmund Freud first used the term “subconscious” in 1893 to describe associations and impulses that are not accessible to consciousness. He later abandoned the term in favor of unconscious, noting the following:
“If someone talks of subconsciousness, I cannot tell whether he means the term topographically – to indicate something lying in the mind beneath consciousness – or qualitatively – to indicate another consciousness, a subterranean one, as it were. He is probably not clear about any of it. The only trustworthy antithesis is between conscious and unconscious.” – Freud, Sigmund (Vienna 1926). The Question of Lay Analysis.
For those who didn’t know, Sigmund Freud was one of the most renown neurologists of his time. He explored the human mind more thoroughly than anyone who came before him and has greatly contributed to what we know as psychology today.
Due to the nature of our conscious mind’s decision-making process being flawed and self-destructive, we have a hard time changing out mindset to become the most positive, disciplined, and rational version of ourselves we can be.
“Deep down, we are all cannibals. Our cells are perpetually devouring themselves, shredding their own complex molecules to pieces and recycling them for new parts.” – Zimmer, Carl (The New York Times 2009). Self-Destructive Behavior in Cells May Hold Key to a Longer Life.
Just as our cells turn on each other, our mind naturally does the same. Subliminal messages get around the conscious mind and work fast to sent positive subliminal affirmations that will help you to become great at trading on the foreign exchange market.
You’re reading this article because you want to learn how to make money trading Forex, yet you have some type of blockage holding your back. In Forex, and life in general, we are our greatest allies and our own biggest enemies.
Research has shown that repeating positive affirmations to yourself daily increases your chances and reaching your goals. Writing them on a sticky note and placing them throughout your home will increase the results even further. Here are five quick examples of Forex trading affirmations you can start using today.
Imagine if this was your thought process during trades. If they were, you would be more consistent, relaxed, and a much more confident trader – people would look to you for trading advice.
Research published in Psychological Science, a scientific journal of the Association for Psychological Science, explores the neurophysiological reactions that could explain how self-affirmation helps us deal with threats to our self-integrity. The study shows that self-affirmation enhances performance.
Another study published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin found that participants who first called to mind their greatest job strengths, or other positive assets went on to operate with more confidence when placed in high-stakes situations. Previous research has also supported the feel-good habit of self-affirmation. Studies show it can help improve problem-solving under stress, boost well-being and increases self-compassion and pro-social behaviors.
Subliminal messages and audio can help you develop a calm, clear, and focused mindset while trading because they operate by sending repeated positive affirmations like the five we just mentioned. These affirmations, gradually, become your own thoughts. The largest misconception about subliminal messages and audio is that the end user is consciously aware of the affirmations.
There are two counteracting types of sensory stimuli I’m referring to:
“A recent review of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies shows that subliminal stimuli activate specific regions of the brain despite participants being unaware. Visual stimuli may be quickly flashed before an individual can process them, or flashed and then masked, thereby interrupting the processing. Audio stimuli may be played below audible volumes or masked by other stimuli.” – Wikipedia, Subliminal Stimuli.
Where many people have problems with getting the most out of subliminal affirmations and related programs is that the affirmations are usually being played at a volume you can consciously understand. With said power of subliminal audios, be sure to trust where you are getting your audios from.
When you learn to trade the foreign exchange markets, you will have the right mindset to also become a good stock trader and a successful businessperson.
By disciplining your mind, you will also be more disciplined in your actions as well. You can passively listen to subliminal audio session every day – they work while you work or even while you sleep. Experts suggest not to listen to them while you drive or operate heavy machines for many different reasons!
They work as you play the subliminal recordings of your own affirmations because you can’t hear them consciously. If you are the one who recorded the messages, you know what the messages are, but they are not being picked up by your conscious instead they are sent directly to the subconscious mind and are in the process of rewriting your thoughts, so you become a better trader.
Ideally, you should notice the first effects take place after a few days or maybe even weeks for those that are more subconsciously stubborn. There is no way to know for sure how subliminal audio will affect you personally until you try it for yourself. You can do this right now by going to our YouTube channel, or visit YouTube and search for “Global Currenciez Forex Affirmations.”

Some people can read all the reports and see all the studies and still be wondering if subliminal messages really work. Of course, not one particular thing will work for everybody 100% of the time, everybody is different, yet the evidence is very strong, and this is why you should give it a try.
Much has been researched and written about the visual aspects of subliminal messages, especially since it was once tried in advertising. Throughout history, there have been some subtle and not-so-subtle ways of influencing people to buy products. It’s almost fascinating to see the ideas some people come up with.
There have also been conclusive studies done on the power of the audio aspects of subliminal messages. Lloyd H. Silverman at NYU, conducted a study which showed that using subliminal messages to help people quit smoking resulted in a 65% success rate, compares to the control group, of which only 15% of people quit smoking.
There’s not one type of toothpaste, brand of deodorant, diet, or even workout routine that works 100% for everyone. We’re all unique in our own ways, some people’s body and mind respond differently to certain types of stimuli. However, like eating healthy, exercising, and meditating, using subliminal messaging both audio or visual do enhance your overall performance and reduces stress levels in the mind and body.
