is it true that if you say something out loud, your subconscious will believe it more?

I’m having problems with my husband. I am trying to think good thoughts about him, despite how I feel. I’ve been told that if I state out loud things like “I LOVE my husband. I am CONTENT with my husband,” etc, that my mind will actually start causing my feelings to change. Is there any scientific evidence or research that would back this up?
We are also getting counseling now. I’ve just heard that this positive thinking technique also works, and I’m looking for any possible evidence of that. Thanks.


  1. Yes. It can make you feel one way or another to say things out loud. If it feels comfortable to say it loud then chances are that it is honest. Don’t allow yourself to doubt your loved ones unless you can find a specific reason; your loved ones have likely already earned your trust.

  2. No, I don’t think that saying something out loud will make you believe it more. If you’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’ then perhaps it’s just something that wasn’t meant to be. It’s nobody’s fault, certainly not yours. I suppose you can keep telling yourself that and counseling will help to figure out why you feel the way you do. Once you’ve done that then you can work on that. I think that telling yourself certain things helps get you through a situation but I don’t think it can change how you feel about someone. I’m sure you’d have to adopt different tactics for that. Good luck.
