Hi Margaret,

I always read your posts as I find them to be informative and very insightful. I recently read that you use the Silva Method to program 3x's a day. I'm very curious to learn what results/outcomes you have achieved using this method. Would you please share your experience, as I am thinking about exploring this method?
Thx!

Rick,
How to reply? I've been doing Silva stuff for almost 3 yrs. now.

I do the CRI holosync program. I believe that holosync has enabled me to get the most out of Silva. In fact, probably it is why Silva works so wonderfully for me.

At the same time, i would never dismiss LS's paraliminal tapes and PhRing & NB. These tapes have enriched my life for years now.

So, for me, Silva techniques are 1 part of 3 part mix: holosync, LS products, Silva. I really can't separate them b/c i don't think my success would be the same w/o all 3.

The most dramatic success happened recently & i posted it here. Did you read it? It was about crushing my ankle and applying the Silva technique "Gone." I wouldn't blame anyone who says i'm making it up. I should have ended up in a hospital.

I will be doing Silva techniques till i exit planet earth. So that should say something about how i feel about it. I purchased 10 tapes and a video & pamphlet for $125 from Laredo. I called and they mailed it to me. It is a tape set that is poor in quality, but all you need is the info. I did not bother to ask for replacements, but i'm sure they would have replaced the tapes if i'd asked. I have listened to them approx. 4 times.

A guy here on the LS df i respect a whole lot also has wonderful success: ckerins. You may want to post to him and ask him about it. He was most helpful to me in the beginning and clarified a few things for me.

good luck

Margaret ..

Do you ever sleep? *G* I read so much from you about what you do for yourself and I just wonder how much time a day you spend doing these various methods?

I have the first CRI set and I'm actually returning it because I don't have the time to give to it. I would love to know what your secret is for doing all this stuff .. I suppose it has a lot to do with priority

Tony---Don't use their web address, b/c they are very unresponsive. I don't think they much like the web actually. Go to www.silvamethod.com for their site. Here is the phone stuff:

I also like these books: The little blue one that is by Jose Silva--The Silva Method of Mind Control...& Silva Method for the 90's. His little booklet on Goals is excellent as is You the Healer. When you buy them from Laredo, they are pretty cheap. I even think they would send stuff world-wide very cheaply. I'm serious. They are NOT in it for the $$$$.

All this modern stuff finds roots in Silva. The thing about Silva is the 1-2-3 & 5-10-15. This is major stuff here w/ his concept of good--very good--excellent. Noone could copy this b/c it's so major to Jose Silva. But, beyond this, it is the one MOST helpful practice to implement in our lives.

Tracy, well, i hope you are not someone from that old CRI df One of the reasons i stopped commenting there was b/c they actually had the nerve to complain & ridicule me for doing all the stuff i do. Hey, guess what...there is a very old saying: You want something done---give it to a busy person.

I lead a very busy life for someone my age. I have a job that requires me to work approx.9 hrs a day & now i'm working every other weekend for 2nd quarter. I have a large house to take care of...mowing, leaves, painting. I was on the roof checking the special gutter guards i had installed, had to dig out the trench, get the generator working & then go to work. I lead a very busy life, but i still made time to go to Germany in April and will be going off to India in July.

I am now studying Robert Moss and his shamanistic practices b/c this is also intuition. I am very much into intuition at this stage and being guided so to speak. Conscious dreaming is also intuition.

So what's my secret? The actual techniques i do are the secret. My intent is my secret. I can shift my energy when i need to. I already know via experience that time/space is more ideational than quantitative. I go to level 3 times a day to check out stuff and rearrange stuff as the need arises. I can PhR and get what i need from books quickly. I can maintain an alpha bw when needed via trigger techniques that i anchor.

I do holosync usually around 1-3a.m. I get up around 11pm. It's really very satisfying and exciting to meet challenges. Trust me when i say---i spent most of my life running away from challenges and a full life out of fear. I have learned the hard long way. But i use this to help others. LS, CRI and Silva have changed all that.

I hope to add one more thing to my mix and that is working w/ high school students as a consultant in accelerated learning techniques. I have a certain amount of resistance to knocking on doors. I like my privacy too darn much. Any time i go public, people just won't leave me alone. I have to learn to be more giving of myself.

I am not neurotically busy though. I was neurotically busy at one point in my life, so i know the difference. Things are just falling into place. I cover a lot of territory during my dreaming, which many people don't take advantage of. So that also saves time...as does holosync.


And i forgot to add that eventually i will add Spring Forrest Qigong. I did it for awhile and liked it very much. But it was too much for me. I tried doing it in the morning and before doing holosync & it just didn't fit in. I hope some day to meet Chunyi Lin.

Margaret,

Thanks giving me the addresses and phone numbers. What would
you recommend as the fastest way to get into Silva without having
to do the course. (or is this the easiest way?)

Do you use any tapes form Silva? What is level 3 you mentioned
in your response to Tracy? Has that anything to do with Silva?


Cheers

I would recommend the book You the Healer if you want to learn the technique without having to sit through the course. Or Getting Help from the Other Side or Silva Method for Managers... they all have the technique outlined in the book.

I graduated from the silva course 12 years ago and find that those books are easiest to learn the technique from as well as providing inspiring applications of the system.

Margaret,

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I think the problem I have is I'm not busy enough. I recall a time when I was working full-time and going to school 30 hours a week (plus homework) and still had plenty of time to do things.

Nowadays, I just work and that's it -- work is about 50-60 hours a week. I try to exercise daily (30 minutes), but I'm always running out of time.

*sighs*

Tony,
If you are disciplined enuff, you can teach yourself w/ that little blue book, The Silva Mind Control Method (which is the only direct book by Jose). I really appreciate this book. Then the book: You the Healer is also very clear and direct. It follows the tapes of the course.

The other books Alex mentions, i'm not familiar w/.

The good thing about the course is the guided visualizations. I also like listening to Jose speak on the last tape. He says some insightful things in response to questions. Took me awhile, though, to understand his accent. I felt more connected to him and his method via the tapes.

You definitely don't need to attend the workshop. I wasted my $$ on that. Ckerins told me i didn't need it & he was right. I say this b/c they cram it all in in 2 days. It's like non-stop & it was just too much for the time allowance.

Silva has us go to level, which is alpha, which is just deep relaxation. I used Deep Relaxation and 10 min. super charger to learn relaxation prior to holosync. So Silva says that going to level 3 times a day is the way to go. If you do it once a day that's good. If you do it twice a day that'
s very good. If you do it thrice a day that's excellent. 5 min=good. 10 min=v.good. 15 min.=excellent.

So, definitely the techniques are in books...fully and w/ nothing left out. Pretty much just like the PhRing book and course. Same thing. Good luck

Tracy, 50-60 hrs. a week is draining. It's all a process. Don't be hard on yourself if you can't do all kinds stuff at this time in your life. A little here & a little there. I only follow my interest in stuff.

Margaret,

Thanks for your tips. I'll give it a shot. By the way, I noticed
the impact of the Deep Relaxation Tape quite strongly. It seems
to clear up a lot of weird energy. It does not necessarily make
me clam but really connected and secure with life.
I then do automatically the right things that work.

Regarding H/S, unlike you I currently need much more sleep
due to overwhelm symptoms I'm now for two month on AL4.4
and still have these symptoms. In this respect the Deep
Relaxation helps me a lot.

Cheers

Tony

Hey Margaret you mentioned Robert Moss' stuff!

Have you gone through his material already? How do you like it?

thanks a lot!!

Re Silva,

The other books I mention also have the direct learning material ... written by Jose himself he is the co author.

I did the course and found it really useful... but then I had the benefit of being taught by one of his daughters in 1990 the classes were over 4 days and very informative. Learnt a lot that wasn't covered in any of the books.

Interestingly enough, last night I went to the local electronic stores and purchased a bunch of things. I kept thinking about the Silva method and while looking at the books I found his book. I was suprised to say the least, this is an electronics store .. not a bookstore. Yet, they had it and some other great classics.

I started reading it last night but am only a couple pages in.

I'll let you know what I think, let me just mention quickly that I've looked at this book multiple times but kept putting it back.

Oh I'd celebrate Friday too, however, we're experiencing Thunderstorms and left my umbrella in the truck!

About the only thing not complaining here are the trees and grass!

Major thing about the basic Silva now is that it's covered in 2 days. Terrible We went non-stop for 10+ hrs. Noone could even ask a question b/c we did the 4 days in only 2 and i think the 4 days was what originally was the week.

I called them and wrote to them that they are doing themselves a disservice to cram it all in in only 2 days. And what use is the free refresher course when it'll just be another workshop of cramming in the techniques?

The Silva people are very laid back. Laredo is still a very laid back country type of place. They take off when it suits them. But they are sincere and caring, just not high pressure competition type of 24/7.

How very cool to find that Silva book like that. Same thing happened to me. So there's definitely some synchronicity involved w/ the old man Silva. He's hanging out helping us along.

I purchased Dream Gates the tape set. I'm glad i did b/c i wanted to connect w/ his voice as well as content. I may buy the book conscious dreaming, but i'll PhR it first to see if there's much more info. His conscious dreaming is just intuition to me but from an ancient setting, i.e., the shaman setting. I am now on tape 5 of 6 and find it very interesting. But, i've been a dreamer and lucid dreamer for a long time now. I think i'm really more along the lines of shamanistic dreaming though. But, i've also studied Jung for 35 years now & i like how Moss correlates archetypes to spirit figures. Very good connection; same concepts only different vocabulary.

I want to get the Emery book PowerHunch that mgrego mentioned. And, i'm trying to get the tape set for N. Rosanoff's book, Intuition Workout. Then that's it till i assmimlate this stuff.

good luck to us all--as he says in Dream Gates: May we come together in a sacred and loving way. May we honor the wisdom of dreams. May we seek to align ourselves w/ our higher self. May we honor our ancestors and defend the earth. May we walk the path of soul and spirit in this lifetime. May we be true to ourselves and to what we may become. May it be so This is the essence of his philosophy. Love all; Serve all. Or as Chunyi Lin says: I am in the universe. The universe is in me. The universe and i combine together.

Alex,
Can you give an example of something that you learned in the 4-day classes that was not covered in any of the books?

Thanks<

OK ... I'm about to make a MAJOR investment to purchase all the Silva books. 52 American smackers!

Now the question is ... are the audio cassettes better or the books?

5 different ways the glass of water technique can be use were explained... not only for solving problems or triggering dreams.

The course also taught specific applications of the 3 fingers technique for studying. How to use the Silva Method during a test was provided in a step by step proceedure.

I've never found glove anesthesia mentioned in any of his books nor the use of hand levitation.

The lectures also included subjects like mirrors of success. Using the Silva Method for solving business problems. How to use the Silva method when face with a moral issue... ie situations where you've been asked to help but it causes moral conflict in relation to your personal beliefs.

The course most certainly explained mental & sensory projection into objects, plants, etc better than any of the written publications or tapes.

The classes also provided alternative techniques for goal setting.. not only the 3 mirror technique but also the 2 scenes method. It outlined the 10 step goal setting process.

The advanced and ultra courses began teaching stuff that Ed Bernd Jnr published after Mr Silva passed away. The video technique I learnt in 1992. The 10 second wonder cure where you can help someone else overcome physical pain just as effectively as you can stop pain within yourself by saying 'gone' 3 times I have never found recorded in any of the books. The unimold was never covered in any of the books.

The 3 to 1/10 to 1 awaken at night for best time for programing technique is explained in the method for business managers book however it has far more uses that were explained in the seminar. I find this technique most useful. The boardroom technique was taught in class but that is explained by other authors... the silva classes just taught how to work with in in alpha.

One of the lectures I learnt how to overcome motion sickness not using a silva technique but then the interaction between teachers and graduates created some unique applications of the method. The method used by one of the lecturers to obtain a passing grade in a subject without even opening the text book was handy. The discussions and interaction between graduates and lecturers was invaluable.

The fact that you only need to elevate you eyes by 20 degrees above the plain of vision induces an increase of alpha wave pattern winthin the individual was explained in a lecture. My later research confirmed this and it explains why lecturers should alway aim to stand above the class... it is easier for the students to learn when looking slightly up toward the teacher to a natural increase in the learning state. Also explained was the slight lowering of the forehead while going into alpha is perferable over the stiff upright head when entering the alpha/theta state for programming. It seem that it brings about a more relaxed state.

Specific methods for reaching alpha with eyes open was given. (not using the 3 fingers technique).

There is more but that gives a general idea of what I was taught.

MICHAEL, why not check out www.half.com for the Silva books and even course. Mgrego mentioned half.com the other day & i'm amazed at the offers there. So, check it out.

ALEX, thanks a lot for your indepth reply. Yes, i learned all those things in the lectures for the basic course. But we were not allowed to ask questions nor were we given any regular breaks. It was just crammed packed w/ lectures & visualizations.

Some how Ken managed to get it all in.

Dear Magret:
I share your support of Jose Silva's work as it has been a great enlightening experience for me. I just learned of the Genuis Code from a friend in Brazil and what to get a clear reading on what you think of it. You also mentioned your use of Holsync( Spelling?) which I am not farmilar with at all. Do they have a website where I could get some information?

Henry,
My suggestion is to purchase the Wenger book: The Einstein Factor. My experience w/ Genius Code is that it really follows the book. With your Silva background, it's my guess that you could implement the techniques you resonate w/ very easily. Silva has become my base for lifting off on all other techniques.

Holosync is brain entrainment technology. Info can be found at www.centerpointe.com which is their site.

If you don't own Learning Strategies books: PhotoReading and Natural Brilliance, this i'd seriously consider buying them. They are wonderful books & the home study courses are also very worthwhile.

Good Luck

If you are having trouble ordering anything of quality from Laredo, you might try Nightingale-Conant. That's where I got my Silva tapes. They are amazing. Here's a direct link:

Hi Margaret and AlexK,

I have finished the Silva Method home study course and was trying to use the healing for a friend of mine who had a stroke a few months ago and is still in coma. What would be your recommendations in how to wake her up?

Alex, how did you overcome motion sickness with Silva method?

Your recommendation is highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Since learning the Silva Method one important thing I have learnt is that when sending healing to others we must allow for the individual own path in the matter. For this reason our healing may not work as we would like.

Even Jose had said that we must ask God to help us accept the course the individual has chosen and always do our programming for 'the good of all'. All you can do is send the healing energy and allow for it to be used in the manner that is ultimately for the good of all. That is why the univeral mold is so appropriate in a matter like this. It allows for your healing energy to be used by the individual in the way that is for the good of all or as God Wills.

The techniques for overcoming motion sickness was a tip that one of my instructors had given me. You move your toes and imagine picking up marbles with them.

Alex,

Thanks for your prompt input and insight. Regarding the motion sickness technique, I have a few questions:

1. Do you have to get into state before practicing the technique?
2. Do you practice before, during, or after you feel sick? Does it prevent or suppress motion sickness?
3. Do you use both feet and all the toes or just concentrate on certain toes?

Thanks.

No need to get into state. It helpful if you programmed prior to the likelyhood of getting motion sick for prevention. It helpful when you feeling uncomfortable. Gives you something to concentrate on. Use both feet ... take your shoes off if you can. It works even better if you actually can pick up marbles with your toes so it much better to be out of the confines of shoes.

Ginger is supposed to help supress motion sickness too.

Alex
