Centers for Growth, Inc® Frequently Asked Questions
Should I order CD's or Cassette's?
Our offerings are all available on CD. You may prefer a cassette
for use when using, for example, a walkman-type player.
Can I duplicate the material?
In addition to the copyrights, because of the highly technical nature
that goes into the production of these subliminals, they are
recorded in a sound studio. They are precisely tuned at a particular
range below the level of normal hearing to reach the unconscious
mind and so it is not possible to assure that subliminals transfer.
Innacurate transfer of subliminals could have detrimental effects
to the listener. We claim no responsibility whatever for tapes that
Just how are Synapse Center’s
Each topic is personally designed and recorded in a
sound studio by Dr. Butler. The several levels of recorded material
are then mixed and precisely modulated. Both the guided imagery
and subliminals direct your desired changes. Utilizing
affirmative subliminals recorded below the level of normal hearing,
we add music with a rhythm that entrains the brain waves to respond
most easily. Messages reach both the dominant and non-dominant
hemispheres of the brain simultaneously on several levels of
hearing, both above and below the normal level of human hearing.
You will not consciously hear the subliminal statements, other than
perhaps a word or two here and there. What you will hear is pleasant
music of either classical pieces or compositions made exclusively
for Synapse Centers recorded by internationally-known recording artist
Don Campbell, author of The
How long or often should I use my CD or
Negative behavior patterns can be easily interrupted with even one
session. To effect permanent change, research has shown that a three-month
period imprints the new behavior as permanent storage in the brain/mind.
Therefore, we strongly suggest that you listen to the imagery portion
often, and the subliminals once daily or more. You will find that
both the imageries and the subliminals, in addition to shifting your
habit patterns, also have great benefit as a relaxation and stress
Is it safe to play the subliminal recordings with anyone else in
Yes. You may play the subliminals anywhere at any time,
without harm to anyone listening. Although the subliminal messages
will be even
more effective if you use stereo headphones, playing them more
often will accelerate the change process. Feel free to listen
to the subliminals in
the car, around the house, while exercising... in short, anywhere,
What about the guided visualizations?
Of course, as with any method that accesses the unconscious mind
and alters states of consciousness, you will NOT want to play the
self-hypnosis imageries when you are driving, operating machinery,
or anything which requires alert consciousness.
The visualizations are most effective when listened to when you can
be in an undisturbed setting to allow for the deep relaxation
they induce. If you find that you go into deep sleep while listening,
you might want to sit up until the program is finished to encourage
remaining in the theta brainwave state of greatest receptivity.
Just before going to sleep is the ideal time to relax deeply and
take in your positive images for the changes you want! The unconscious
mind can then continue working your program all through your delta
brainwave sleep cycle, also.
The guided visualization portion of your program can certainly be
used also at any time you choose to relax.
Why Stereo Headphones?
Electroencephalogram equipment (EEG)and the CT scan,
among other things, prove asymmetry, hemisphere dominance and
of labor exist. The tachistoscope can show that each cerebral
hemisphere receives information primarily from the opposite half
of the body.
Split-brain patient studies clearly indicate specific capabilities
and inabilities for each half of the brain.
Dr. Butler believes that the use of stereo headphones when listening
to subliminals make even better use of your change messages.
When different words are heard simultaneously by each ear a person
tend to report the words heard consciously on the right and
ignore those heard on the left. You will be reminded at the beginning
each recording how to use your headphones, if you choose to
use them, for the subliminal portion. The guided visualizations
can be listened
to with or without headphones; with mono or stereo delivery.
What is so importance about voice intonation?
Research has shown that the best language to reach
the unconscious mind is using a vocabulary roughly of a 10
year old. The non-dominant
hemisphere processes verbal material if voice intonation is
used. The dominant hemisphere processes it if a monotone is
used. Dr. Butler
records all our materials on several tracks and separate right/left
information using this guideline.
What difference does it make what music is used with subliminals?
One of the striking things about subliminal perception is the importance
of passive receptivity as a means by which individuals can become
aware of subliminal stimuli. Relaxation appears to have an extraordinary
effect upon human perception.
Don Campbell, author of The Mozart Effect , has composed and performed
the music which carries your subliminal messages designed and spoken
by Dr. Butler. It was composed using the proven optimal rhythm for
relaxed receptivity. Other musical selections are from classical
or other pieces which also match the rhythm of the theta (subliminal)
Why direct subliminals and visualizations to different parts of the
The same experience is perceived differently by the dominant and
non-dominant hemispheres of the brain because memory exists as two
separate processes. One is verbal and the other is visual.
Remarkable behavioral, psychological and even physiological change
can occur if the verbal suggestions and the visual images are presented
which engage the unconscious in the process.
Our suggestions for change are embedded as subliminals under music.
The images are given through the Guided Visualizations.
Should I have a list of subliminal messages?
We believe, based on experience and research, that
if the person desiring the change has a list for the conscious
mind of the subliminal
messages which are intended for the unconscious mind, that
the conscious blocks are simply reinforced. For this reason
the text of
your subliminals only by specific request.
