The Silva Technique – Create your own life

The Silva Method is the ultimate in self-improvement technique, achieved through meditation and visualization. You may think these things are not for you; that maybe they are for incense burning hippies, but you’d be wrong.

The Silva Method can change your life overnight, by changing your sub-conscious thoughts and negative habits.

How I found the Silva Method – a turning point

I first found out about the Silva Method through a book I took out of my local library. It was called “You the Healer”. I’m a mobile Massage Therapist, so I was always interested in new ideas for healing. It seemed to promise the ability to create a better life, so I gave it a go.

This book blew me away. I had tried meditation before, but could never silence the chattering monkey in my head long enough to make any difference. Intrusive thoughts would always come barging in and push any thoughts of improvement right out of my conscious mind.

I had this book out for so long, and paid so many fines for late return, that I decided to buy my own copy. Not only that, but I bought a couple of extra copies for my clients. I wanted them to experience the amazing effect that this method had on me.

What it did for me – despite my doubts

We are brought up to believe that the mind is the mind and the body is the body, and never the two shall meet. Well, I’m here to tell you that just isn’t true.

The technique was so easy, simple and effective that I was able to pick it up in no time. Within a week or so I could relax my mind and master a visualization technique that helped me to eradicate health problems that had dogged me for years.

I used to have crippling migraines. These are not just headaches, but visual disturbances too, which meant that I would have to take a tablet and lie down in a darkened room for hours at a time. It was debilitating and at times very inconvenient. I was able to rid myself of this painful curse in just one session. Yes, honestly, just one session. I occasionally had threatened attacks over the years, but a few minutes of using the Silva method would send it packing in minutes.

Another problem was my annual hay-fever, which was again dispatched in short measure. A lump on my thyroid, a cyst on my eyelid, a ganglion on my thumb all were dealt with within weeks. I just couldn’t believe it, but there was the evidence in front of me. It’s hard to believe it when someone tells you that this is possible, but I am living proof that it really does do what it says on the tin.

Who they are.

The organization was started by Jose Silva in the early sixties. He developed the techniques and practiced them on his own children, perfecting the method until he was able to offer it to a wider community. It has been family owned since 1966 and they have collaborated for almost 50 years with scientists and researchers, who have not only confirmed the effectiveness, but been able to explain what the physiological effects are on the mind and body. His children are now the experts in this method and it is their mission to pass on Jose’s vision to us. His vision was for these techniques to be taught in schools and homes around the world to teach children how to use the power of their minds to control all of life’s challenges.

What it says on the tin.

There are various levels of what Silva can offer you; I just did the basic course. So there is a lot more you could get out of this Silva Method if you really wanted. The Silva Method helps us to use and access both hemispheres of the brain. The left, more used side, is for logic and learning, whilst the right side is for creativity and visualization. When we can use both sides of our brain, the power is amplified and our abilities enhanced.

It will teach you how to relax to relieve tension and stress; learn how to relax anywhere and in the midst of noise and chaos.

Stress management will strengthen your immune system to give you perfect health physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.

Cancel out negative thinking, beliefs and behaviors that hold you back and are incongruent with your purpose and goals.

Learn how to:-

  • Fall asleep without drugs
  • Reduce fatigue and stay awake and be alert longer to get things done
  • Headache control
  • Improve memory, visualization and imagination.
  • Set and achieve your goals effectively
  • Remember dreams
  • Wake up without an alarm clock
  • Control pain
  • Get rid of bad habits, such as over-eating and make good habits.

It is a conscious way of living to fulfil your potential, to overcome financial, career and health challenges, to live a harmonious and productive life.

The Mind Body connection

Silva is a global organization dedicated to changing lives by empowering minds and it has been proved over and over in recent years that our mind has a direct effect on our bodies.

We think in pictures, and the pictures work on your physiology. If you are in a room where a vicious dog or a hungry bear is on the other side of the door roaring and pawing at the door to get at you, your mind will conjure up a picture of that animal in your mind; and with that picture in your mind, your heart will pound to push the blood round your body to feed your muscles to either fight the predator or run away; it will produce cortisol and adrenalin to give you extra strength to do what you need to do.

Most of the time there isn’t a dog or a bear wanting to rip us apart, but the general stress and tension of every day life still creates the stress hormones of cortisol and adrenalin. It creates it in a chronic way, in that they don’t go away when the danger has passed because there is no specific stressor; just an underlying, ongoing feeling of danger in our sub-conscious minds. These stressors have been proven to be the cause of many life threatening diseases. Silva can help us to avoid these by giving us the tools to create a calm and positive outlook and the ability to deal with any trauma that life wishes to throw at us.
