Having studied a number of techniques for improving one's quality of life through positive thinking, Law of Attraction, Creative Visualisation to NLP, this is by far the best program I have seen. It is powerful, clear and unique in it's approach, but above all I found it works the best. If you are a true fan of self-development strategies and have a serious desire to make real change in your life, this is an ESSENTIAL program for you to investigate. It is not uncommon to experience results within a matter of days, let alone, weeks and months.

Completely changed my life. One of the few books about meditation with practical implications for the day to day life. Good for everyone interested in mental training, from the beginner to the more expert one.

Jose Silva's book about the Silva Method is good. However the 4-day workshop is excellent. Taking the course in 1981 forever changed my life. Before my introduction to the Silva Method I was skeptical if I could not see, feel, taste or touch something. I saw only the physical world and thought the way to understand and harness it was through science and technology.
The experiences of a fellow therapist and a psychologist I worked with, who I respected, closed my tiny materialistic window and opened a vast door to the invisible world of energy and spirit. They said they had each learned to diagnose and heal three people knowing only their names, age and location. Steeped in the medical model for healing I suspected my friends had been duped and thought about taking the course to expose the charlatans. Especially since the Silva training had a money back guarantee.
When I heard a 4-day Silva course was being offered locally, I signed up. The introductory lecture was about Jose Silva, the founder, and outlined the almost four decades of research and development of The Silva Mind Control Method.
The instructor said the five senses-touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight are only a part of the senses we are born with. He said the exercises would help us learn to use more of our minds and use it in a special way to prevent illness, improve our health, solve everyday problems, learn more easily, strengthen our imagination, deepen our spiritual awareness and tap into Higher Intelligence. He said that meditation takes place when we are in the Alpha Brain State and that an electroencephalograph (EEG) can measure it. The brain rhythms of the Alpha Brain State are about seven to fourteen cycles per second (CPS) and we are in this energy state when we first go to sleep and when we dream.

This was José Silva's first book on the Silva Mind method. It is what I would call a "must-read". Learning this method should be made obligatory in all schools and be offered to children at an early age

José Silva learnt all that he presents in his Mind Control method in the course of working with his own children, years ago, to enable them to do well in school. When he experimented with mental training exercises, the children's school marks quickly began to improve, and, amazingly, they began to answer his questions before he had asked them - they had become clairvoyant!

In this book, José begins by teaching us how to meditate, to reach Alpha, the state in which our brain waves vibrate at between 7 and 14 cycles per second. We create a mental screen on which we can visualize/imagine our goals, and project the bodies of the subjects we wish to heal, including ourselves.

When imagining what we want, we need to desire that the event take place, believe that it will take place and expect it to take place.

When we work in Alpha, we are in touch with Higher Intelligence and can only create good things. If, for example, we should try to give someone a headache, we are the ones that would get the headache, and/or we would snap out of Alpha.

We hear how José once won 10,000 dollars after receiving a set of lottery numbers in a dream, and we learn how we ourselves can programme for dreams to solve specific problems - though he doesn't promise that we will win the lottery!

There's a chapter about using our mind to improve our health, and we learn, specifically, how to get rid of headaches.

This is great book. It goes into more depth than the other Silva Method books. If you have already embarked on a journey on meditation before discovering The Silva Method then this is a great tool to add to your library. Remember anything worth your time and effort to read is an investment. Ultimately your WILL to attain mastery of mind is more than you can read in a book yet this book is fundamental to personal growth and personal development.

Happy Reading.

This is the original Silva Life Method as designed by Jose Silva. It has been updated and reviewed, but the core part of the course remains the same and just as valid as ever. In fact, this is a method I recommend to anyone who is seeking personal development, spiritual, professional or, personal, tapping into inner wisdom to maximize potential in every area of life.
