Paraliminal Review

Since starting this website in 2008 I’ve received dozens of emails asking for recommendations of quality meditation or relaxation CDs. Through the years I’ve experimented with many different programs, but unfortunately they weren’t worth sharing.

Last year I came across the company Learning Strategies and had my first experience with PARALIMINALS. They’re a unique technology different from any other program I’ve tried before. Listening to Paraliminals I have experienced benefits such as stress relief, relaxation, clarity, more energy, and increased focus and follow through.

Here is my explanation of what Paraliminals are, how they work, and what results I’ve attained using them.

What are Paraliminals?

Paraliminals are audio programs designed to increase your personal power by activating your whole mind. They use a precise blend of original music, sound, and words to stimulate the left and right hemispheres of the brain to coordinate together. They are a great tool to assist you in making personal changes quickly and efficiently.

It’s important to point out that paraliminals do not use subliminal messages. Subliminal recordings usually have no immediate effects, and it is doubted if they produce any effects at all. I’ve tried several subliminal recordings and have found them to be ineffective.

How They Work

Each recording begins by stating the purpose or parameters of the session. Then you are guided to a state of relaxed alertness while music plays in the background. As the music fades, you will hear two distinct voices, one in each ear. (It’s important to use stereo headphones during the session to really get the full benefits.)

The voice speaking in your left ear will use mostly metaphors and creative, colorful language to connect with the right hemisphere of your brain. The voice speaking in your right ear will lead you through a logical process to connect with the left hemisphere. This approach coordinates both hemispheres of your brain and will include instructions, advice, and creative visualization.

If you’re like me, the idea of two voices speaking in each ear may sound confusing or overwhelming. Surprisingly, it’s very relaxing. I find the two voices send me deeper into a meditative state and after a session I feel refreshed with a nice calm energy.

Paraliminals use a technology known as “Holosync” audio tones, developed by Centerpointe Research Institute. If you’re not familiar with Holosync, it’s an audio technology that:

“creates the electrical brain wave patterns of many desirable states. These states include deep meditation, increased creativity, focus and concentration, and accelerated learning ability.”

The Holosync technology combined with Learning Strategies unique approach to engaging both hemispheres of the brain creates a product that you can actually feel results on the first use.

Why Coordinate Both Hemispheres?

In my opinion, involving the left and right hemispheres of the brain is what really gives Paraliminals their edge. During most activities we lateralize to one side or the other, engaging our logical or creative faculties. With Paraliminals logic and creativity work side-by-side making your progress seem effortless.

Are They all the Same?

Each Paraliminal is unique and has a specific personal development theme. The CD’s and downloads are approximately 20 -30 minutes long and comes with an instructional booklet. They can be purchased one at a time or you can buy them as a set and save money.

My Results

No More Coffee
I enjoy a good cup of coffee and it goes great with dessert. As long as I drink it once in awhile things are good. When working late or feeling sluggish coffee or tea was my go to source for a burst of energy. This often backfired as the caffeine made me jittery and unfocused, plus the next day I would wake up tired and groggy.

I haven’t been able to find a good energy boost without drinking coffee or tea.

I gave the 10 minute supercharger a try and found it to be very effective. I get a good burst of energy for a couple of hours after listening to the session. But even better, I find I don’t have to listen to it to receive the benefits. At this point, I sit, close my eyes, remind myself of the session, take a few deep breaths, and I’m re-energized. This process takes me about 2-3 minutes. It’s as if my brain is reminded of the session and goes right into relax and recharge mode.

Sometimes I still listen to the whole recording, but it’s pretty rare, the effects have been long lasting.

If you’re in a similar situation where you need an energy boost during the day, then I think you’ll find the 10 Minute Supercharger to be a valuable tool.  In addition to a healthy burst of energy, you can save $3 - $5/day on Starbucks ;)

Deep Relaxation
This paraliminal is about 30 minutes long and completely calms my mind, reduces stress, and revitalizes my body. I don’t feel energized like I do with the 10 minutes supercharger, I just feel really good and relaxed. It’s like dropping into a deep meditation without having to do all the deep breathing, visualization or repeating a mantra. This is one of my favorites.

Stress does a lot of damage to the mind and body. Finding a safe way to quickly and easily relax can have many health and immune enhancing benefits.

If you’re stressed and would like help getting into a deeply relaxing state, this Paraliminal may be just what you're looking for... Click to Learn More!

Get the most out of your Paraliminals

Some tips: read and follow the brief instructions, they cover what to focus on for your session. Be sure to use headphones when listening to each recording. Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed and either lie down or sit comfortably. Then, close your eyes and play the recording. Let your mind and body relax.

As you can tell, I highly recommend Paralimals, but so do many of the top names in Personal Development including: Anthony Robbins, Jack Canfield (from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series), Deepak Chopra, and Steve Pavlina.


Each Paraliminal is backed by a 30 day money-back guarantee, so you may try a recording at no risk. They’ll even extend the guarantee if needed or help with Free Success Coaching. Contact them directly for more info.

When it comes to improving your life, there’s no magic pill. You have to want to change and get involved in the process, but using Paraliminals makes it a whole lot easier. After your fist session I’m sure you’ll be convinced of the value.

I hope you’ve found this review helpful. Best wishes on your journey!
