The Power Of Words
It’s true that the pen is mightier than the sword and that the power of words should never ever be underestimated.
Of course, words also go hand in hand with the power of suggestion which, as we already know, is extremely powerful. What many people don’t know or realize is that words are so powerful that they can literally be used to program the human mind, just like language can be used to program computers. It’s also true that the best way to hide something is to hide it in plain sight. That way, it won’t seem suspect and nobody will take any notice of it.
A perfect example of this is the word “government” – it’s a word used daily which we take for granted but what does the word actually mean? To “govern” is to rule or to control and “ment” comes from mentality or mental. Govern = control, ment = mind. The word government literally means “mind control” and yet we just accept it and never bother to question why such a word is even being used. It’s hidden in plain sight.
Perhaps even more bizarre is the name, Osama Bin Laden. If we literally translate these words from their proper meanings, the name Osama Bin Laden would actually translate into English as “to dispose of Osama” or “to get rid of Osama”. Maybe at this point, we should also note that the term “conspiracy theorist” was originally coined by the CIA in the 1950s to discredit those suspected of leaking government (mind control) secrets. Alternatively, the words “Al Qeda” translate into English as “The Database”.
Language is indeed something which programs the mind and vice versa extremely effectively, hence the fields of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Psycholinguistics. Ericksonian hypnosis, also known as conversational or covert hypnosis is also a large part of NLP. It’s true that everything is just information, communication and perception and language is, of course, our main way of communicating. We are all constantly influencing each other by communicating with each other through language and in actual fact, even silence is a form of communication – you cannot not communicate, it’s impossible. It’s also true that any system can be manipulated if you know how it works (cause and effect/the butterfly effect). Embedded commands which go unnoticed by the conscious mind but which are absorbed by the subconscious can easily be embedded into sentences in to give indirect subliminal commands to a person who will then subconsciously carry out those commands believing that they did it of their own free will.
It’s also true that the subconscious mind knows the true meanings of any and every word, even if the subject has never heard the word before in their lives. It’s also true that a person can understand a completely foreign language which they have never learned whilst in a deep hypnotic (somnambulic) trance.
Subliminal Persuasion (Video)
Watch the video above to see how the UK’s most prominent psychological illusionist and hypnotist, Derren Brown, effortlessly controls the minds of the unsuspecting UK public without their awareness or consent by using linguistic subliminal persuasion.
Although this technique is mainly based on linguistics, there is actually a combination several things going on which all play a part in the success of utilizing such linguistic techniques, particularly in a public setting.
Whereas NLP is described as the study and structure of subjective human experience, Ericksonian hypnosis is also a major part of NLP and was developed by Milton H. Erickson. Erickson was at first unsure of how he was so successful with conversational hypnosis. That is, he didn’t quite know how he did it, he just knew that it worked (i.e. he did it subconsciously).
Linguistics are so powerful that they can be used to lull a person into a deep trance or to plant ideas and suggestions into the subconscious mind of a target subject without their awareness of consent.
Words are constantly influencing and persuading us each and every day of our lives and yet we never really stop to consider their true power. This, of course, ties in with free will and when words are combined with other subjective experiences, such as listening to music or watching a movie plus the circumstances and situations that you find yourself in, the influence that words combined with all the other influencing factors have on you becomes omnipotent.
In actual fact, every choice or decision that you make in life, you are being “manipulated” or influenced or persuaded into making by your subjective experiences, although you may not be aware of it. This always applies, even if you had to think deep and hard for a long time about making the decision. This doesn’t necessarily mean that free will doesn’t exist, it just means that free will is not what you think it is.
This leads on to even more important factors, such as how the mind reads words, seeing them as symbols and looking at the overall pattern rather than reading each word letter by letter. Symbolism is also an extremely powerful tool which is or can be used to subliminally influence the human mind and, of course, is a form of language which speaks directly to the subconscious without having a specific and direct conscious meaning.
Such suggestions can then be (and are naturally) amplified by metaphor which is why certain secret societies and occultist groups use ritualistic acts, even if allegorical, along with symbolism (e.g. Freemasonry) – it’s a form unconscious programming which becomes strengthened by doing so. This symbolism along with the ritualistic acts are then amplified even more by the metaphorical analogies that accompany them. This is why tools such as Voodoo dolls or Black Magic circles are used along with ritual acts when carrying out such practices.
These are the three single-most powerful ways of programming the human mind and are always happening to you constantly throughout each and every day. Objective reality determines your subjective experience which then influences your decisions yet that objective reality presents you with information which it (consciousness) already knows how you will react to based on your inner thoughts and emotions.
Of course, many atheists and skeptics often portray supernatural or paranormal events, superstitious beliefs and coincidental, synchronistic or peculiar events as purely subjective experiences and may perhaps label them as illusions, delusions or the mind playing tricks on you and indeed this can and does happen. However, one person’s subjective experience becomes an objective experience if there is someone else observing it from another viewpoint. In other words, subjective and objective reality are simply just opposing sides of the same coin – they are both manifestations of the mind (consciousness).
Every word which is ever spoken to you, every word you ever read or hear, every song you listen to, every movie you watch, every book you read, every situation or set of circumstances you find yourself in are all manifestations of consciousness and are all happening intentionally to influence and persuade you in a specific way in order to determine which decisions and choices you will eventually make. However, beneath your conscious perception, those decisions and choices have already been made – they just haven’t manifested yet.
You may feel and think like those choices were made out of your own free will at the time but technically, they weren’t – they were already predetermined; pre-programmed into you.
Any free will that played a part in the manifestation of the reality you find yourself in at any given time, actually happened well before you made any conscious decisions during the actual experience. You had actually already made those choices subconsciously in the past. Reality is a reflection of inner consciousness. The feeling you have of being given free will when you consciously make a decision in life, is therefore actually nothing but an illusion.
Other words to consider the true meanings of, considering that the human subconscious already knows their true meanings, are the words “spirit’, “demon”, “amen”, “empathy” and “emotion”. The words “spirit” and “demon” are akin, as the word demon (unlike many people would assume) actually means “spirit” or “deity” or “divine power” or “guiding spirit”. The word “Amen” may have originated from the pagan God, Amun-Ra, and is often used as a declaration of affirmation. The words “empathy” and “emotion” tie in with each other perfectly. Of course, “empathy” is to be attuned to another person’s emotions (emotional telepathy) whereas “emotion” is energy in motion (E-motion) – empathy is therefore the perception of that emotion, everything being energy in motion (consciousness experiencing itself subjectively).
Also bear in mind that achieving higher states of consciousness also requires a good understanding of linguistics and symbolism and always remember that everything is simply just information, communication and perception happening at advanced levels. Nothing more.
