Silva Courses From the mind of José Silva
“So that when we move on, we shall have left behind a better world”
Benefits of Intuition
Mental programming, inspiration, and perspiration lead to multi-million dollar invention Juan Silva worked side by side with his brother Jose during their research. They wanted to see if they could use the Alpha level to help them invent something that could be of value. They were extremely successful at it. Juan said that all Jose did was to program him to have a desire to invent something that would be of some benefit, some value. The result was that he invented a vending machine. He sold the patent to a company in Mexico, and agreed to go to work for the company to set up and supervise the production of the machine. Juan stayed on that job for more than a decade. In addition to running the factory, he was also teaching people the Silva techniques in his spare time. He considers those years to be the best of his life. Here is a transcript of what Juan told us about the creative process that he used: "You program yourself to accomplish a particular feat, shall we say the assembly of a mechanism," he explained. "You don't know what you are supposed to do about it, so you program yourself. "You are not going to get a direct answer to it, a specific answer. No. You are going to dream about related things, and whatever other things that flow intuitively to you about what you are supposed to be doing.     "It has always been the case - like with everything else - you are not only supposed to program, not only supposed to imagine, not only supposed to scheme things; you are supposed to execute them too. "You are body-mind. Don't leave your body behind, or your mind behind. "So what you programmed for, and what you dreamed about, if anything, really doesn't make any sense. But when you start fiddling around, trying to work or draw whatever you think, this is when it starts flowing, when the information starts flowing. "All of a sudden you will start to accomplish what you need. "You might not recall dreaming about a rack gear. You start thinking, "Where can I put a rack gear? I've heard of round gears, square ones, but rack gear? Where did this come from?" "I'm telling you this because this is what happened to me. "Consequently, when I went back to work on this rack, as to how I was going to use it, it was obvious it was going to have to be with gravity, and was going to have to be perpendicular to something. "So one thing will lead to another. "But you must execute. "If you just leave it and write it down, what you dream about, and leave it right there, it's not going to go any further. "So whatever you program for, make sure you execute, carry it out. It's always the case. You have to get your body and mind together, to work. "So this invention of mine came about like that. Then I needed a coin mechanism. I needed something to detect these coins, within thousandths of an inch and so forth. "I think that the most outstanding thing that happened to me along these lines, when I invented this machine, was that the purpose of what I finally wound up with -- I never dreamed about the purpose, I never programmed about the purpose of it; I mean, the basic purpose, yes: I wanted to sell sodas, I wanted to sell candies, whatever. "But the fact that there were four different types of coins, and they could coin any one, or any combination of them. They could change the coins, or change the price of the merchandise, and my machine wouldn't become obsolete. I could make adjustments. "Now this is what I didn't dream about. This is what I actually did not program for. And everything came out like that. "This is what's very peculiar and outstanding, that I have never been able to figure out. "You know, it is awfully hard for you to invent something and to set the purpose for what it is supposed to do. But when five other things come up that the machine can do, well you definitely didn't think about that, you didn't program for that. "So it is just as if somebody took you by the hand and lead you, you know, all through all of this programming. "It happened at a low level (brain frequency) of conscious awareness, that I had acquired and had worked on it and had practiced it every day. Every day I would go to my level and practice deepening exercises until I was sure that I had gone below ten cycles. Then once a week, on Sunday, I would do the complete Long Relaxation Exercise. "So I attribute my programming success to the fact that I was at a lower level of conscious awareness." Express yourself We are all individuals, and we all have our own way of doing our creative work and expressing our creative ideas. You can gain inspiration and motivation from studying the lives and the methods of other great creative people. Ed Bernd says that he took some comfort when he heard playwright Neil Simon tell interviewer Larry King, "I'm not a television writer. I can write hits for stage, movies, musicals. I don't have a talent for writing television. I was not born for that." Simon, who wrote such hits as The Odd Couple and is one of the most successful playwrights of our time, went on to say that he spends the first two or three days of work on a project working on the name of the play. "If you get the name right," he explained, "you know what it's about, and the audience knows what it's about." Ed says that it frustrates him a bit that he seems to need to do everything in sequence. "That's what happened with the Sales Power book that I wrote along with Mr. Silva and Dennis Higgins," he said. "I couldn't start the actual writing until I had a working title that made sense to me. "Every three or four months, I would call Dennis and discuss things with him. I made a lot of notes, and had a lot of information to include in the book. But I just couldn't seem to figure out how to express it without having a title. This was really frustrating. I figured up one time that during my lifetime, growing up in the newspaper business, I have written 10 million words for publication! It frustrates me when I get stuck. I may have been stuck, but I never gave up. "Then Dave Bellizzi, a wonderful salesman, came up with the phrase I needed: 'Use the untapped power of your mind to increase your sales and income.' That became my working title, and after that it was easy. "But I still had to do it in sequence," Ed continued. "I organized all of my information into an introduction and fourteen chapters. I had fifteen file folders stuffed full of notes and information. I should have been able to write any chapter, but my mind just doesn't seem to work in 'random access' fashion. I had to write the introduction first, then Chapter 1, then Chapter 2 and so on. "The good news," Ed continued, "is that once I got started, it was very easy to write, thanks to the Silva techniques. I was writing one chapter per day. How did I do that? I usually write for about forty-five minutes before I run out of things to say. That could be one page, or several pages during that forty-five minutes. "Then I go stretch out on the sofa and listen to music. I daydream about anything except the book. I just leave it up to my mind - my inner conscious level - to arrange what comes next. Suddenly I feel like I am ready, so I get up, go back to the keyboard and start typing to see what is there. "Of course, I program myself in advance that I will do a good job. I go to level at night when I am in bed and ready to go to sleep, and I use the MentalVideo Technique, making a video about how easy the writing will be and how good it will turn out." Despite his misgivings about not being able to write chapters out of sequence, Ed's way is obviously a good way for him to work. The Sales Power book has been translated into a dozen foreign languages, and is being sold in more than two dozen foreign countries. It was the first Silva book to be translated into Russian. And Ed is not too modest to show people a copy of the article that appeared in Publisher's Weekly, the leading trade publication for the publishing industry: The article was published in the May 18, 1992 edition, shortly after Putnam published the English language edition, and says in part: "With an assist from agents overseas, New York agent Jeff Herman has sold translation rights in Malaysia, Israel, Spain and Spanish South America, France, Hungary, Thailand, Brazil, Taiwan and Denmark. Other foreign contracts are under negotiation. "Income from the various guarantees so far has passed the $100,000 mark." "It was definitely a collaborative effort," Ed says. "Jose Silva gave me so many techniques to work with, and Dennis Higgins helped so much to write it in a way that sales people and everyone else would really relate to and benefit from...I just used my experience as a reporter to arrange the words, sentences, and paragraphs, and we wound up with a fabulous book." Everybody benefits Silva techniques are not just for struggling artists. Even those at the very top of their field can benefit in many ways. Dord Fitz, who was an outstanding artist, art teacher, and art historian, inspired thousands of us to claim our creative heritage. He did not need help to become a great artist. But he was thrilled with the benefits he got in his personal life from Jose Silva's method. "It is what I had been looking for my entire life," he said. There are two steps that proved so valuable to Fitz and countless others: 1. Learning to enter the alpha level and to activate your mind, thereby using the subconscious consciously, and converting the subconscious into an inner conscious dimension. 2. The mental projection exercises that are featured in the Silva UltraMind ESP System. These "mental calisthenics," as Jose Silva liked to call them, provide you with "points of reference" - a roadmap to guide you while functioning in the creative, spiritual dimension. When Doc Severinsen took the course back in 1980, he was one of the most famous band leaders in America, appearing nightly on late night television. He told us that he used the alpha level to compose music, to help him with personal relationships, and much more. Harry Jackson, the "Sculptor of the American West," was the main speaker at our 1981 Silva International Convention. Evidence of his success as an artist comes not only from the critical international acclaim he receives, it is confirmed by the fact that he earned $5 million the previous year. Jackson said that after dropping out of high school, he headed west where he learned the trade of the cowboy. He was "killed" during service in World War II and then revived, but the head wound that he suffered left him with epileptic seizures and a lot of anger and resentment for the next three decades. It was only after he attended the Silva course in with instructor Paul Grivas in New York City in 1980 that Jackson finally found peace and an understanding of how the events of his life made him the man he is today. This big, rough looking, rough riding, bronco busting cowboy is obviously a man of great spiritual depth. He has carried a copy of the Bagavad Gita - the most spiritual writings of the Hindu religion - in the hip pocket of his jeans ever since World War II. But it took the Silva System to help him find peace with himself. Speaking at our 1981 Silva International Convention, he said that the Silva System is the most powerful method he has found yet for "helping the human soul to find itself." That's also what Dord Fitz was looking for thorough art - and teaching to his art students - when he met Jose Silva and found what he had been seeking his entire life. We have been told that we were made in the image of our Creator. That means that we are creative beings. We encourage you to claim your creative heritage. That is the very essence of life. It is essential that we function creatively in order to come up with creative solutions to the many problems that plague the world today. Jose Silva always believed that's what we were sent here to do. He says it this way at the end of our mental training exercises: "You will continue to strive to take part in constructive and creative activities to make this a better world to live in, so that when we move on we shall have left behind a better world for those who follow. You will consider the whole of humanity, depending on their ages, as fathers or mothers, brothers or sisters, sons or daughters. You are a superior human being; you have greater understanding, compassion, and patience with others."

These "mental calisthenics," as Jose Silva liked to call them, provide you with "points of reference" - a roadmap to guide you while functioning in the creative, spiritual dimension. When Doc Severinsen took the course back in 1980, he was one of the most famous band leaders in America, appearing nightly on late night television. He told us that he used the alpha level to compose music, to help him with personal relationships, and much more. Harry Jackson, the "Sculptor of the American West," was the main speaker at our 1981 Silva International Convention. Evidence of his success as an artist comes not only from the critical international acclaim he receives, it is confirmed by the fact that he earned $5 million the previous year. Jackson said that after dropping out of high school, he headed west where he learned the trade of the cowboy. He was "killed" during service in World War II and then revived, but the head wound that he suffered left him with epileptic seizures and a lot of anger and resentment for the next three decades. It was only after he attended the Silva course in with instructor Paul Grivas in New York City in 1980 that Jackson finally found peace and an understanding of how the events of his life made him the man he is today. This big, rough looking, rough riding, bronco busting cowboy is obviously a man of great spiritual depth. He has carried a copy of the Bagavad Gita - the most spiritual writings of the Hindu religion - in the hip pocket of his jeans ever since World War II. But it took the Silva System to help him find peace with himself. Speaking at our 1981 Silva International Convention, he said that the Silva System is the most powerful method he has found yet for "helping the human soul to find itself." That's also what Dord Fitz was looking for thorough art - and teaching to his art students - when he met Jose Silva and found what he had been seeking his entire life. We have been told that we were made in the image of our Creator. That means that we are creative beings. We encourage you to claim your creative heritage. That is the very essence of life. It is essential that we function creatively in order to come up with creative solutions to the many problems that plague the world today. Jose Silva always believed that's what we were sent here to do. He says it this way at the end of our mental training exercises: "You will continue to strive to take part in constructive and creative activities to make this a better world to live in, so that when we move on we shall have left behind a better world for those who follow. You will consider the whole of humanity, depending on their ages, as fathers or mothers, brothers or sisters, sons or daughters. You are a superior human being; you have greater understanding, compassion, and patience with others."
