Best-Selling Author Shakti Gawain on the Silva Method
One of the earliest workshops I took was the Silva Mind Control Course... The most important technique I learned in that course was the basic technique of creative visualization... Our rational mind is like a computer... The intuitive mind, on the other hand, seems to give access to an infinite supply of information. It appears to be able to tap into a deep storehouse of knowledge and wisdom...

How the Silva Method helped Richard Bach complete one of the Greatest Books of our Generation
Best selling author of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull", Richard Bach, said in an interview in Harper's Bazaar magazine "It was the weirdest experience of my life. I was walking along one night, worrying about the rent money when I heard this voice say 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull'. But no one was there. I had absolutely no idea what it meant. When I went home, I suddenly had a visualization of a seagull flying along, and I began to write. I just put down what I saw. Richard Bach praised the Silva course publicly: "Mental discipline and creative visualization are what's behind the power of the Silva Method", he said in an article in Harper's Bazaar magazine. His book went on sell over a million copies and even made the cover of Time Magazine.

Author Richard Bach on How the Silva Method influenced his Life
Richard Bach, Silva Mind Control graduate and author of one of the "hottest" books ever written, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, explains: "Creative visualization is really what's behind the Silva Method; that is, whatever you can visualize, you can actualize" That is putting it squarely on the line. It is putting teeth into the old saw, "What man can conceive, he can achieve." If you conceive of "a good day,"... Need I finish the sentence? Everything works better when you work; but objective work, as productive as it is, is not the only work you must do. You must also do subjective work using ten cycles per second to resonate with other minds and to get everything to work still better.

Visualize and bring it to you
I have known the Silva Method for many years and lost track of it;sometime ago I wrote Laura Silva so that she helped me to obtain a proof that I had taken two of the courses with your teacher in Puerto Rico and Venezuela. My story takes me to Venezuela because when I repeated the course in Venezuela I got to met a lady that I thought it would be my companion for life ; and as everyone knows its very difficult to bring someone to America even before the September 11 happenings.Anyway after I married her I begun to make all the papers needed to bring her to Puerto Rico legally. I made all papers hand written and made my own translations that usually is a no no.In four months time she and two of their children were legally living in Puerto Rico with me.I used the three finger technique and the glass of water as long as my visualizations.

Dreams come true
I am an architect and artist - to make a very long story short, architecture was boring for me, very stressful and I was completely miserable while working in that profession. I decided to start an architectural illustration firm about a year and a half ago – and it has been very wonderful to build something up out of nothing, but something was still lacking. While I love art and am passionate about it, something in the creation of it just seemed selfish and empty to me. While it is fun for me to do, I felt that it wasn’t really doing anything to leave the world in a better place – and I would like to devote my entire life to that, including the time I spend earning a living. Help came in the form of the Silva Method. I stumbled across a book of his, “Sales Power, The Silva Mind Method,” while trying to figure out a better marketing strategy for my firm. The growth I have experienced within the past few weeks is exponential. I received insights that solved all of my inner dilemmas about the connection between art and helping others and I now have a clear sense of direction in my life as well as a much more profound sense of faith. For the first time in my life I can see results – and see them quickly. I am now in the process of transforming my rendering business into a business that focuses on creating visualizations and dream boards for other people to use so that I can help them to manifest what they desire into their lives. Something in the Silva Method seems to have removed the blocks from deep in my subconscious that were preventing me from receiving the insight I needed to make my dreams come true… and helped me to clarify what my dreams actually were in the first place. It was the missing link in all of the work I had been doing to better myself over the years – the missing link to receiving guidance and being able to manifest things easily. Thanks to Jose Silva my ears are now open to receiving insight and I can manifest things quickly - sometimes even instantaneously. All I can say to Jose Silva and his family is thank you! Thank you! Thank You!

Goal setting and visualization
I've known about Silva for a long time. I attended the 2 weekend seminar years ago. I have recently started to listening to the new Life System, with the idea of fully implementing the system and methods more fully than I ever had previously. The first thing I notice, now that I've started again, is that I feel less stressed and have more energy at the end of my day. That pays for the system all by itself, without my having gone far enough into the program to really implement the many techniques. The thing that I learned about Silva from my past experiences is, when you know what you want, the techniques help you obtain it. Everybody knows that about goal setting and visualization, but Silva is a step-by-step process for doing that. It works. I once told a friend that I wanted to move to the state I now live in, and work at the job I now work in. He told me that was too specific a goal to be obtainable. It turns out it wasn't. The other thing that amazes me about Silva, and that makes it one of the reasons I know I'll benefit more if I exert a little consistency and discipline, is that, during the weekend seminar years ago, I told someone my aunt's name, and the town she lived in, and that's all. A few minutes later, that woman told me my aunt has a prosthetic leg. And, that's true. She lost it in a car/horse accident as a teenager. So, even the most far-out stuff - the stuff I had to witness to believe - is real. There really is more to us than we know, and Silva is about knowing and using that.

"Changed My Whole Life"
I am a girl from Bosnia and Herzegovina that had a chance to get something that changed my whole life, YOUR BOOK. Because I believe in [the human mind] it was [a] very interesting book for me to read. So it started. I feel that I am very rich with that valuable experience. And I am very proud of myself. You changed my life and made me stronger. 'The 'Subconsciousness is the key of resolving all problems in ourselves and in others''. Very gratefull. Yours Minja!

"I programmed to overcome the fear of what people think of what I say and do. I programmed myself to say the right thing, and to do the right thing. Two days later, a lady told me, 'You're very powerful.' This showed me that the programming worked."

Silva helped me to be at the right place in the right time and meet the right people
I learned from the Silva Method through a medical doctor who attended several Silva Seminars in 2006. Since March 2007 I am regularly reading the Silva News and applying the Silva Techniques through the Free Silva UltraMind Online Training Program. I am surprised how much my life and career changed since then. When regularly applying the basic Silva-techniques (especially lesson 4 Visualization & Affirmation) I realized that I always manage to be at the right place at the right time and meet the right people to perform brilliantly and to become a successful happy person again. Already after Lesson 8 I decided not to pursue my old reward less and frustrating job, started a new education in natural medicine, recently succeeded the final exams in the top 10% of class. I realized that I am no more the average performance person but that I can achieve excellent results by controlling my mental states (concentration /relaxation) voluntarily. I am currently establishing my new business with lots of success without advertising. I know that I am attracting the right clients by power of will. I even noticed my positive influence on family members and friends. I am much more positive. I stopped my bad habit of procrastination and became very motivated and thus turning my life into a joyful rewarding one.
Finally! I Found Something That Works
I was first introduced to the Silva Method (entitled Silva Mind Control) back in the late 70’s and took the course at a motel in California. I was impressed with it then but lacked the perseverance to continue the exercises unaided and it drifted into the, “I know this stuff works… if I could work at it but…” syndrome. Sometime later I was introduced to the “Psyco-Cybernetics” of Dr. Maxwell Maltz and found more detailed instructions on WHY it works. But, again, my lack of perseverance stopped me (along with my, seeming, inability to creatively visualize). Then I found you on the internet, listened to your introductory Centering recording and was sure that I had found the answer to HOW DO YOU MAKE THIS WORK. I ordered the course and I’m astounded. I have, since I first got the course, gone to alpha level at least twice a day using the shorter method and once, usually at noon, using the longer version. I haven’t tried the other lessons yet as I want to become proficient at getting to alpha level quickly and easily and I’m not going further until I have this as part of my being… rest assured, the rest of the program WILL be used. I should add that I also bought the book “Creative Visualization” and that too has explained the visualization process in a manner that registers with me. Finally it occurred to me that I have been using all of these insights throughout my entire life to create the life that I have lived up until this point. What was missing, you have supplied; a way to DIRECT and CONTROL my mind to create the life I chose. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. All I can say is that it's a real life changer.

My Life Has Improved Tremendously
My goal of using Silva Life System was to get rid of the stress I had been under and to seek new direction in my life and a vision for the future. I recognised that I was very confused, insecure and unmotivated, but I did not know how to get back on track and into the rhythm and flow of life. Since using the program, I have regained my self-confidence and feel that I'm getting control of my life and it's circumstances again. The teaching of creative visualization alone has helped me greatly. I am able to concentrate on my newly set goals and have already started accomplishing some of them. I am also getting a more positive outlook on life. You show great confidence in your product and continuously strive to ensure customer satisfaction as well. Keep up the great work and I'll keep you posted on further progress. Cheers, Angelica Curlingford I will certainly recommend the Silva System to friends and family. As a mtter of fact I already have. I am convinced that it is a great program and would like everyone to experience and benefit from it just like I have. The Silva Life System is a great system that works. I would even recommend the free online introductory program that you offer. Starting with that alone was very beneficial to me.
