One of the most common questions we get asked about InnerTalk has to do with the best way to use the programs. While we do have our official recommendations on this, I am not really one for following rules. As such, I have played with it and have tested out some different techniques on myself. Today then, I want to share with you some of my experiences and how they have worked for me.
The official recommendation is to play the InnerTalk subliminal programs once a day for 30 days. While this is very effective, and is based on research that was done at Colorado State University, I have found that for myself, I get better results when I play the programs more extensively. In fact, whenever I try out a program for the first time, I will play it just as much as I can—all day long in the background as I go about my day and all night long while I sleep. Played this way, I can tell within the 24-hour period what kind of effect that particular program is having on me.
This is also a great technique to use if you have a number of issues you want to work with. While theoretically you could play 24 different InnerTalk subliminal programs over the course of one day, it would be impossible for you to know which program was having what effect. Once you know the kind of effect each program is having, then you can decide on a day to day basis whether you want to focus on a specific program, or if you want to combine a few.
Most of us have a wide range of issues that we wish to deal with, ranging from Prosperity and Abundance to finding the Right Love Relationship, Accelerated Learning to Positive Parenting, Opening Up to a Higher Power to Networking for Sales, etc. However, it is important not to get bogged down by the enormity of the list of things we want to fix or improve. I always advise people to start with just a few issues. Many times, self-improvement in one area has a cross over effect to several others. You fix one area and you discover that you feel better about some of the other issues without even trying.
I am a strong believer in approaching the one issue from different angles. In the last couple of years, my own self-improvement work has resulted in us creating several new albums:
- I decided I wanted to make sure my cognitive abilities did not start slipping and I certainly did not want to accept the idea that a decline in brain power was just a part of growing older, so we created the Brain Power album;
- I decided to dive in and deal with a bunch of traumatic issues related to my childhood, and so we created the Reclaiming Your Inner Power collection; and
- I wanted to maximize my ability to turn off stress and truly relax—knowing that real rest would simply help me be more productive when I needed to work. As such, we created the Eliminating Stress: Experiencing Joy.
As you can see with each of these albums, I combined several InnerTalk subliminal programs that I could play throughout the day, with a few headphone programs that I could use once or twice a day for that more immediate boost. When I work with the programs this way, I generally see the changes happening very quickly. In fact, when I used the Reclaiming Your Inner Power album, it was less than 2 days before I started connecting together dots from my childhood, experiences I thought I had left way behind me, in fact, experiences I had totally forgotten about. I was amazed at some of this recall, but as I acknowledged the pain from yesterday, it totally lost its power over me today.
Mixing It Up
But what happens when I don’t have something specific I am working on? Well, those are the times I find ways to boost my positivity in several areas—areas I know to be important in the big picture, but which are not causing me actual problems right now.
For the past month, my playlist, which runs on continual play all day long while I am at the office, consists of:
I really don’t know how much I get to hear of each of the programs. I am in the office about 8 hours, but I often wander about visiting Eldon or going out to the warehouse. I think I get to hear each of the programs about once a day, but sometimes I could well miss a program on a particular day. Even so, I am finding the results very interesting.
When we first created this program, it only took playing it a few times for both Eldon and I to get into deep-cleaning mode—we sorted out parts of the office and our home that we had not looked at in years. However, with the more relaxed way I have been playing this program it is not the deep cleaning I am doing, but rather those little odds and ends are just getting sorted out without me even noticing. My workload no longer has so many uncompleted tasks, the piles on my desk are decidedly smaller, clear spaces are opening up in my home, and I am generally feeling more relaxed. Check it out here.
Using the Brain Power album last year really highlighted to me how a lot of cognitive issues really are a case of stress (too tired to think through problems) and simply bad thinking (some cognitive loss is just part of aging). I reversed many of the issues I felt I was having then, and now, just playing the program a little everyday, I am watching my mental abilities actually becoming sharper every day. My own self-talk has changed and I frequently tell myself I can remember—and that is exactly what I do. It is as though I feel memories turn around and come back towards me. More details here.
This year I finally finished the first draft of a book I have been working on for about 8 years. The second draft was completed in about a month, which absolutely amazed me, and I am expecting to have my third and final round of edits done before Christmas—so that I can turn and write the non-fiction book that has been rattling around in my head for the last couple of years.

I have this program in my play list more for my husband’s sake, as my own blood pressure is excellent (Eldon has speakers in his office so he also listens to the same list of programs that I have chosen). However, maybe my blood pressure is so good simply because we simply play this program a lot. We both find it very relaxing and just enjoy the music. Also, although Eldon had triple by-pass surgery 11 years ago, his doctors are always very impressed with how well he is doing. He has even been told that he now has the heart of a 28-year-old!

I have never had a real weight issue but for the past few years I have been aware that there are a couple of vanity pounds that I would really like to take off. However, I must confess that I added this title to my playlist simply because it is one of my all time favorite musics. The piece is by Emmy award winning musician, Jim Oliver, and it always transports me to a very calm, inspirational place. It is simply an added benefit to me that I have now dropped those few pounds and feel stronger and healthier than ever. Learn more here.
Summing It Up
So as you can see, there are a variety of ways in which you can work with InnerTalk. The only thing that I cannot stress enough is to always strive to be better—small changes accumulate and in time, your world can look very different.
So what InnerTalk programs will you put in your player today?
Wishing you love, light, and laughter . . . always!
