  • Fascinating lessons and insights into your mind and how to awaken its full potential, delivered by President of The Silva Method, Laura Silva, and her team of veteran instructors.
What You Gain from Silva The Silva Method has been studied in universities around the world and its benefits are scientifically proven. This is what you can expect to gain…

Parenting Attachment
Banish stress for good.
Learn how to put yourself into a deep level of meditation within a matter of minutes. Nothing bothers you. Sounds don't disturb you. Stress melts away. Productivity soars. Ambitions stay clearly in focus without distraction. Worries no longer suffocate you.

The Silva Life System takes you through 10 sessions of deep Alpha and Theta Level meditations, as an instructor guides you mentally and verbally through the process.

Parenting Attachment
Develop positive thought patterns.
Upon studying Silva's training, Dr. James Motif of the Psychology Department in Hope University, Australia, found that it led to anincrease in adherence to moral and ethical standards, positive attitudes to family members and better social self-image. It also led to a decrease in self-criticism.

In addition, Dr. George Desau, in a study on Silva graduates at the Incarnate School for Girls in San Antonio, Texas, found that our curriculum boosted ego strength, helped prevent shyness, increased trust and cooperation among students and led to greater self-assurance and warm-heartedness.

Parenting Attachment
Learn to naturally accelerate your body's rate of healing.
Jose Silva firmly believed that the mind is the driving force behind ALL healing.

In the Silva Life System you will learn a variety of mental visualization methods designed to accelerate your mind and body's natural capacity for physical and emotional healing.These results have been studied and endorsed by a variety of medical practitioners.

For example Dr. O. Carl Simonton, a world-renowned cancer therapy researcher, described the Silva Method as one of the "most powerful single tools" that he can offer to his patients.

Parenting Attachment
Habit control.
Are you overweight? Do you smoke? Do you have trouble with motivation, diet, exercise, or sticking to personal resolutions?

With the Silva Life System, you apply techniques to reprogram your mind like a computer, so you can free yourself from bad habits and instead replace them with good ones—without the usual relapses and willpower struggles. It's a process that we believe is far more powerful than simply self-hypnotism, affirmations or visualization

Parenting Attachment
Learn faster, remember better, improve grades.
Silva has in various cases been shown to raise IQ and to boost memory.

In a study conducted by the Autonomous University of Tlaxcala, Mexico, it was found that 67.7% of university students improved their IQ classification after using The Silva Method.

Researcher Lillia Alcira Vacca concluded, "From my perspective, and the results of my work with young people, the Silva Method could and should be taught to students in all academic levels in every country, in order to contribute to the betterment of humanity."

In addition to boosting intelligence, it has been proven that functioning at the Alpha Level allows better retention and recall. You learn techniques that can be applied at school and during exams to help you recall information better.

Parenting Attachment
Boost your creativity.
Studies show that creativity is enhanced when functioning at the Alpha level.

Listening to the Silva Life System, you will learn how to enter the Alpha level at will and then to use your creative mind to help you think of solutions to problems, enhance creativity or let inspiration flow.

Silva graduates have used this process to develop patents, start new businesses, or to create works of art, literature and music. Here are some examples:

Bestselling author Richard Bach praised The Silva Method 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. Bach also credits inspiration from The Silva Method as having helped him finish his best-selling book, "Jonathan Livingston Seagull".

Band leader Dr. Severinsen has composed music while at his Alpha level. In a newspaper article, he claimed it helped him connect better with his own spiritual life, and in doing so he became a much better person.

World renowned sculptor Harry Jackson said it brought him the peace of mind he had been searching for.

Parenting Attachment
Think big and attain powerful goals.
The Silva Life System is more than a motivational self-help course. Motivational self-help courses leave you on a high for a few days but people often revert to their old ways after several weeks. Not so with Silva.

Studies have shown that the Silva programs lead to you becoming permanently more self-assured and positive. But most of all, you learn to think bigger, set higher goals and seek to achieve things that contribute to humanity.

Whether you're 12 years old or 80 years old, Silva makes you think bigger, and plants in you the unbreakable desire to accomplish and do more with your life.

Parenting Attachment
Performance enhancement for sports, career.
Dr. Charles Garfield, former NASA researcher and current president of The Performance-Science Institute in Berkeley, California, talks about a startling experiment conducted by Soviet sports scientists.

The study examined the effect of mental training, including visualization, on four groups of world-class athletes just prior to the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. The four groups of elite athletes were divided as follows:

  • Group 1: did 100% physical training.
  • Group 2: did 75% physical training, 25% mental training.
  • Group 3: did 50% physical training, 50% mental training.
  • Group 4: did 25% physical training, 75% mental training.
What the researchers found was that group 4—the group with the most mental training—had shown significantly greater improvement than group 3.

Likewise, group 3 showed more improvement than group 2, and group 2 showed more improvement than group 1.

The results were astonishing. Who would expect that athletes training mentally would be able to advance further than their counterparts who were training physically?

Garfield said, "During mental rehearsal, athletes create mental images of the exact movements they want to emulate in their sport. Use of this skill substantially increases the effectiveness of goal-setting, which up until then had been little more than a dull listing procedure."

With the Silva Life System, you learn to practice such mental rehearsals. The results can be very significant.

Parenting Attachment
Sleep better and learn to practice creative dreaming.
Silva teaches you to "command" your mind to let you fall asleep when you choose to. It also shows you how to set your internal clock to be able to wake up anytime—without the use of an alarm clock. Imagine how much productivity and energy you will gain by always having a good night's rest.

You will also learn a wonderful technique to help you remember your dreams—and even to ask for dreams that could contain the solution to problems. Throughout history, people have credited dreams with helping them develop new ideas. The inventor Elias Howe got the idea for the sewing machine through a dream. Paul McCartney came up with the song "Yesterday", in a dream. The structure of the Carbon-6 molecule was discovered through a dream.

Now you can use your dreams to help boost your creativity and inspiration.

Parenting Attachment
Silva recognizes that everyone is born with intuitive abilities, and that anyone who learns how to manifest these abilities can function at a highly intuitive level. Through our proprietary scientific and time-tested process, you'll learn how to use your inbuilt psychic abilities in everyday life, and use your "gut feeling" for a happier, more successful and more enlightened life.

A research project conducted by Dr. George Maycock at Appalachian State University in North Carolina demonstrated that students who completed Silva training showed a significant increase in creative and intuitive functioning. Of the 30 students who participated, 25 showed gains in intuitive abilities.

Four of the other five (who did not show improvement) were already functioning in a high intuitive mode before the training. Intuition is valuable for students and adults alike. One researcher found that 70 percent of gifted or high-IQ students were predominantly intuitive, while only 39% of students in regular classes were intuitive.

Silva Life System Workbook
"The Silva Method has given me the confidence I lacked as a child. I no longer have the fear of speaking in front of audiences. I have been able to deal with people on a one-to-one basis, rather than in a subordinate position. It has also helped me to relax where I was tense and had severe headaches before."
Furman DeMaris from Cherry Hill, New Jersey
"Jose Silva gave us the key. He told us, ‘You work so hard to do all the things that you do. Why don't you use more from your neck up instead of down?' The results? We have completely circled the world three different times in three different routes. Our trips always pay for themselves and more, because of the way we program it."
Ken and Elone Hoobler, owners of artificial stone business from San Antonio, Texas Imagery International
Great course I loved it. I found the course enlightening and felt personally moved by the course. If more people thought the way Jose Silva thought this would be a better world for all of us. I want to personally thank you for putting together such a wonderful course. I was so moved and touched by the course, I thought after I become proficient using these techniques maybe I could become a trainer for Silva.
Greg Netherton from Blue Springs, MO

The Silva Method has by far been one of the most influential personal development programs I have done. In a few weeks of programming I was able to hit my sales quota by 200%. I've used it from everything to finding my watch to attracting a boyfriend. Yes, I even used it on men. It's amazing how much you can do with your mind if you know what to do. I strongly recommend everyone apply this method. It absolutely works. We all owe it to ourselves to make our lives better and better.
