Format: Paperback
Jose Silva is an intreaguing individual. Here he reveals results of many years of researc into developing the powers of the human mind. Some of this has been updated later with audio cd which is easier to use but these methods are free and easy to learn, compared to the audio program which is much dearer. Silve is not the most brilliant teacher but, being the originator of the Silva Method, I think this is the best place to start to get an inexpensive introduction into Silva meditation which has been taught to 4 million people. It contains a lot in a small book so you will need to read it over a few times to let it sink in. I will keep it as a book to never get rid of, an essential part of my library. The only thing I would point out that is anyone who gets into mind control for 40 years tends to become unconventional. In this case, I just ignore his promotion of reincarnation, which I do not accept, and his encouragement to get help from spirit guides in another dimension. But it is hard, or almost impossible, to find a writer out there I totally agree with in every way. This is a book that will change your view of the power of the human mind. Silva spent a fortune in research and shares it at minimal cost for the development of society. This book is great to help you overcome subconscious blockages that are holding you back in life, use intuition to guide you, get creative help from forces in the universe and use mindpower to help those you love. It is not a book about hypnosis as Silva's research did not find it effective in mind control. Strongly recommended with those reservations.

Format: Paperback
The Silva Method is the famous transformational method, whereby we learn to go to a deep meditational state, Alpha, thereby activating the right side of our brain, and by means of visualization/our imagination create the life we desire.

The best, of course, is to take a Silva course, or courses, but I found this book to be extremely readable and helpful.

I took many courses, and read the books, many moons ago. On re-reading this book, I see how the late José Silva was a man way ahead of his time, and in fact a highly developed being and a genius.

José terms this help from the other side, or from God, our “invisible means of support”.

Even back then he knew that the present age is “a period of awakening, of expanded consciousness”. José’s research, courses and books have enabled many millions of people throughout the world to expand their consciousness.

“The Silva Method is a way of relaxing the body and the mind and then using the slowed-down brain-wave frequency and the stepped-up right brain activity to produce some positive result.”

Picturing mentally, that is, using visualization and imagination, is a right-brain activity, and the right brain is “connected” to the other side. José tells us that our mental computer is then connected to a larger computer, and our need is heard, and then filled.

We learn how to count ourselves down into the Alpha state, where our brain waves vibrate between 7 and 14 cycles per second, and are given a series of exercises, whereby we gradually learn to do more and more mental programming.

We are taught to cancel out worry and replace it with positive, solution-oriented thinking.

This is a useful book, from the guy who started the human potential movement. I found it very useful. The "other side" is the right side of the brain.

It works. Many years ago I read the first books and practiced on my own, but didn't take that practice very far. This book seemed to explain more about how to telepathically connect with others and motivated me to sign up for the 4day course with Kevin Coscia. The results were/are mind-boggling and astounding. I was able to "see" and describe people I had never met. I use the method regularly now and this is one of my reference books.
