I just finished reading Eldon Taylor's book Mind Programming and find it fascinating. The first half of the book is downright scary - "Big Brother" is definitely here. The second half of the book goes right along with what I have been telling my patients about how their thinking affects their health. I use BEST (from Morter Health Systems) to help them, but I can't use it to work on myself. I've tried other subliminal tapes before with mixed results, but I really like what I read about the technology Mr. Taylor uses in his approach. I've already started using the "Serenity" CD and I plan on using more of the Inner Talk CDs over the next three months to see how they work for me. Great book - thanks!

Ever thought of how you are being programmed? In part one of Mind Programming, Eldon Taylor exposes the dark side of brainwashing and the psychological techniques used by others to control our thoughts and behaviors. I was shocked to discover the lengths to which some people will go to exploit our minds for their personal gain. In part two of the book, Eldon provides empowering tools and exercises to take back control of our minds. Part two is a must read that everyone can benefit from. This is a 5 star book! Fascinating to read and hard to put down!

Even though I consider myself to be quite aware of what is going on in the world, this book boldly shatters illusions about how extensive the mind control in our society has become. Eldon Taylor gives specific and documented examples of the deliberate and aggressive ploys to control our behavior and our minds. Are you really free? Only if you can take back control your mind. Thank heavens, Dr. Taylor shows us how in one of the most important books I have ever read..

Mind Programming is a "Must Read" for conscious survival in the 21st century. Dr. Taylor, in this very well researched andcomprehensive work on influences - coersive and involuntary - to positive applications in better understanding our lives leads us well into the 21st century; Understanding these influences allows us to be much more selective in terms of what we have and allow in our environment. A Masterpiece!

I have thoroughly enjoyed Eldon's book Mind Programming after an excrutiating bout of depression and substance abuse from self esteem issues caused by childhood trauma. This stress then resulted in the erosion of a fantastic 20 year relationship and 10 years of marriage and finalized in separation. I survived with an acute awareness of how out of control most of my decision making was. The wisdom in this book provided me with a strategy which I had not yet given a chance before, self-help psychology and reasons behind who I had become versus who I really was. I was enlightened to how sabotaging "self-talk" lead me to justify bad choices and therefore continue destructive behaviors as I blamed my situation on forces I saw as out of my control. I currently use the innertalk cd that came with this book on a daily basis and find it has allows me to make key changes in my perceptions and choices. I now have peace and my healing continues. I am more knowledgable on the power of the mind as 'healer' as well as the lengths corporate authority will go to abuse the mind to the detriment of individual and humanity as a whole.

I purchased the book, "Mind Programming", by Eldon Taylor last week and find it hard to put down. The most intersting thing about the book is that the accompanying subliminal CD really works. I've tried other subliminals but this one beats the rest. The book is well worth the price. I highly recommend it to everyone intersted in self improvement. Oh, one last thing. All you have to to is listen to the CD either while driving in the car to work, working around the house, or simply relaxing in your easy chair with no effort invovled whatsoever and within just a few short weeks you'll begin to notice subtle changes in the way you view the world in which you live and these subtle changes of thought will have an overall improvement on health and well being. You have to try this to believe it. It is well worth buying.

Have you ever overindulged in an inexplicable craving? While your craving might have come entirely from your own desires, there is a chance it might have been planted by someone else. Eldon Taylor describes in his book, MIND PROGRAMMING, how we are emotionally manipulated in various ways we are unaware of. A multi-billion dollar business of subliminal advertising is one aspect of this extraordinary situation we can no longer afford to ignore. Far from living as true masters of our own minds and lives, we often fall prey to a variety of mind control tactics which lead us to unwittingly make choices and do things which are not in our best interests. MIND PROGRAMMING illustrates how easily hypnotized most of us can be, and provides readers with tools for recognizing ways we are vulnerable, as well as ways we can overcome these vulnerabilities and regain mastery of our minds. Taylor shares shocking real life examples of subliminal advertising campaigns, as well as a wealth of his own real-life experiences working in sales, advertising, psychology, physical security, lie detection, forensic hypnosis, intelligence and counter-intelligence. Even though I had some prior knowledge of various compliance techniques, I was astonished to see how widespread and unregulated many of these techniques are today in the USA. I was also amazed by the compelling evidence to suggest that people become conditioned to seek ever-increasing amounts of shocking material to meet increasing needs for stimulation. MIND PROGRAMMING builds a very convincing case that we can no longer afford to ignore subliminal messages, as much of the self-destructive impulses we currently experience represent the manifestation of subconscious beliefs we've unknowingly adopted. Rather than mindlessly continuing to live conflicted, dissatisfied lives, we can instead take a look at the subconscious mental messages we've accumulated, and make changes in them in order to profoundly improve our lives. MIND PROGRAMMING helps readers outsmart those who are secretly manipulating us with numerous metaphysical techniques, and a delightfully powerful full-length Serenity subliminal CD in this book. I give MIND PROGRAMMING my very highest recommendation, as it simultaneously describes and resolves the root causes behind many of the biggest problems we're facing on Earth at this time.

Taylor has opened another door for us to help us take back our power. Many say we are free but are we really? I have always thought of myself as a person who is aware of everything that is going on, but reading this book has made me realize how little I actually know about manipulation and mind control. The book comes with a free InnerTalk CD witch I listen to on repeat all day long and when I go to sleep. The music and background ocean waves help me relax and feel good. I know that there are many people who have no idea of how we are being controlled, and this book is a really good eye opener. Thank you Eldon Taylor for have the courage to write this eye opening book, hopefully, it will help people take back their power once and for all. I give it five stars. I can't wait to order more CDs. Sandy

I bought this book because I'm a high school student interested in Psychology and I bought this book based on it's description. I found it very very interesting and revealing. It covers many different topics and I enjoyed the Inner Talk CD it came with. Eldon Taylor really knows what he's talking about-as all information is logically reasoned throughout the book. Must read for Psychology enthusiasts.

An interesting and fascinating read. Some of the technical talk might be too much for an average reader in this area. But the contact flowed well and was presented in an entertaining manner.
Bonnie-S More than 1 year ago
I truly enjoyed this book! I have been working with healing my mind for some time, but this book truly gives much insight into what is happening in our world and how that is programming us. The C.D. has been a wonderful addition for me to the information and tools that he shares. It is a great book for ones who really want to be the master of their own minds!

I recently purchased Mind Programming which came with a wonderful serenity music CD. The book is certainly opening my eyes regarding how our beliefs/values are manipulated through media, through socialization and through our basic learning process. Mind Programming is very relevant in today's world with recent studies and new information regarding regarding brain flexibility, that the brain is not static, and is able to make new neural pathways. Changing one's thoughts is the way to increase our brain flexibility. Reading Mind Programming is a must read to understand how subliminal messages help to increase brain flexibility and improving one's life physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The affirmations and Serenity music CD are great teaching/learning tools included in Mind Programming. A must read!!!

Although I already knew most of the information that was presented here, Eldon laid out the information in a clear and orderly manner and then followed up with various ways to recognise and overcome that programming. Bravo Eldon. Kudos and any other superlatives that I can throw your way for presenting this valuable information to the public.

I purchased the CD's prior to a 1200 mile driving journey traveling alone..these cd's were played the entire route, as I couldn't stop listening to them..replayed them time and again..so much information...this material is just wonderful & an eye opener..validated my wonderment regarding DNA. I just loved every minute of these cd's. This information should be out into the entire world. Once you start listening you won't be able to stop.

I have taken many courses on this sbject over my life time and just as many books. But Mind Programing has to be the best and most informative of all. It not only gives you the how to of how it works, its benefits, different ways to utilizes it, and place it into practice, but provides you with a history of the topic and how it is used in our everday lives. I recommend this as a must read for everyone it will provide great insight to its use in todays world by corportions, government agencies and adversitzing. I ask only that one read the book and listen to the cd inclosed for free. It will put you on the road to a true life changing experience. R. Norsworthy Mobile, Alabama
