“Our senses are constantly being bombarded by enormous amounts of information. Only a small part of it reaches our consciousness. However, our subconscious mind absorbs it all.
Subliminal messages are embedded in another mediums. They are unrecognizable by the conscious mind, but in certain situations can affect the subconscious mind and later actions and attitudes.
Subliminal messages are very common in advertising.
They are usually directed to our primary needs and instincts such as SAFETY, SATIATION, SEX.”
REACT: That’s why when we are trying to get into our prayer closet to pray, sometimes it’s hard for us to get into the Lord’s presence because our mind is so preoccupied with lots of things: mostly of VISUAL images from TV, internet, pictures, etc..like how many hours are we spending in Social Media or social networking sites or on watching TV dramas or news a day?
The longer you stay, the more the images and mostly trashes (negative and unhealthy comments and posts from netizens) get into our souls. Our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, should we be feeding it everyday with thrashes and files of junks?
And, these images once entered into our brains, needs cleaning, that’s why we need to pray from time to time “Lord, sanctify my mind, my eyes, my ears, my heart…renew it…I’ve watched a pornographic pictures and videos today or have sung or listened to unwholesome songs…”
Once visual images or audio materials are passed into our brain, it will stay there for good unless cleansed, removed, renewed, sanctified, and this process of cleaning takes not just a second…there’s a matter of discipline and self-will and the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)
