A method for mind control?! Who plans to control our mind? Do they want to brain-wash and maneuver us, like puppets on strings! NO WAY! And “no way” it is, because the truth about Silva method is quite the opposite.
The Silva Method
“Mind control” – this unfortunate choice of words was actually the focal point of majority of attacks of narrow minded people. This is not about someone else controlling your mind; it’s about YOU controlling your own mind! The Silva method is a method of your own mind control. I have only this to say: guys, there is nothing dangerous about it! It is perfectly normal, it has nothing to do with any religion.
The Silva method was created in the 1960s by Hose Silva, an expert in electronics and a visionary. He used his business in electronics to finance his longtime research in the field of brain waves activity, the ultimate resource that we operate on, both on conscious and on subconscious level, the energy determining the power of our mind, extra sensory perception etc. He was the first to prove that we could learn to consciously function on alpha and theta brain frequencies. He proved that all of us had so called “psychic abilities”, and that they only had to be practiced to be fully activated. After years of research, he developed the basic course of Silva Method to help people learn how to control their mind so that they could feel numerous benefits in their lives.
The Silva method is based on practicing dynamic meditation. What is that exactly? Well, unlike other types of meditation aimed at eliminating thoughts in order to relax and “filter” our mind, the Silva method supports meditation techniques aimed at taking control over our own thoughts, thus improving our lives in all areas. So, all we need to do is to relax physically and mentally, and by doing that to enter the alpha level, and once we are relaxed, to apply some of the techniques.
I attended the basic Silva method course 15 years ago. The basic course consists of training in 14 techniques. Read more
What is the easiest way of changing our vibrations toward the outer world in order to make the law of attraction work in our favor? The secret is in operating on the alpha level of consciousness. Namely, it has been scientifically proven that it is when our brain emits the alpha waves that we have an open door to our subconscious mind. It is then that we can change subconscious programs, solve our creative chalenges, intensify our intuition, learn better and memorize more, etc.
Alpha brainwave (symbolic)
I have promised to write about the Silva method, and the article on the alpha state of mind is simply a natural introduction of the story. Silva method earned its success by introducing the method of conscious entering the alpha state while still being wide awake. Such an access to the alpha state was a return ticket to a journey through infinite capacities of our mind.
The little gray cells of our brain use electricity to communicate among each other. Observations of the total electric charges of all these cells have led to recognising a pattern in their activity, a cyclic, wave-like impulses, aka the electric waves. Brain waves can be measured by an instrument called EEG (electroencefalograph). Depending on the frequency on which the waves pulse, five main cathegories of the waves have been identified, each of them bringing a specific set of features to our mind and body.
- Gama waves (40Hz – 70Hz) – the state of full concentration. In this state we are fully focused, and it is then that we use our intellectual capacities to the fullest.
- Beta waves (13Hz – 40Hz) – the state in which we are engaged in the conscious activities, while we are awake and active. This state is predominant at most of the adults during the day.
- Alpha waves (8Hz – 12Hz) – the state of being relaxed. Alpha brainwaves are usually achieved when we close our eyes, when we meditate, imagine, day dream, or the state just before falling asleep, or before waking up naturally.
- Theta waves (4Hz – 7Hz) – deeper state of relaxation. It has similar advantages as the alpha state, apart from one disadvantage: focusing on one thing is more difficult in this state because in it our attention is dispersed. Staying awake in this state is another challenge.
- Delta waves (1Hz – 4Hz) – the state of deep sleep and coma. There are no records of people consciously reaching the delta brain waves state (at least I am not familiar with such cases).
Now, let us go back to the alpha level, for it is the level that is most interesting for utilizing success secrets which I am writing about in the SSS blog. Read more
Affirmations are positive statements describing a state that we want to achieve. Positive affirmations are one of the most used and very effective success secrets. They should be repeated many times in order to convince our subconscious mind to change or intensify the programs it operates on. To make sure that affirmative sentences are effective, they should be repeated with concentration, conviction, interest and desire.
Saying positive affirmations in front of a mirror
There are a number of ways for using this success secret (positive affirmations):
- In meditation – we say affirmations mentally during the meditation or in a relaxed state before going to sleep or in similar situations.
- Said out loud or mentally – this is the commonest and the simplest way of using them, because we can say them during the day, while doing some routine jobs, or in front of the mirror while watching our reflection eye to eye, or if we record them and play them afterwards
- Written down – we can write one affirmation down several tens of times really thinking what we are writing, or we can post printed or written affirmations on our wall, on the desk, or a kitchen, or on any other place where they will always be visible.
- Said in front of others – this is a bit unusual, but very successful way of using affirmations, when people say their respective affirmations to each other, and the rest confirm them. If you overcome uneasiness and blocks, this technique will prove to be very powerful.
- Sang – music simply sticks to our consciousness and to our subconsciousness, so that it would be good if you could sing your affirmations.
And which are the affirmative sentences that you should be repeating? Read more
Programmers will probably be the only ones to understand this title correctly. I know that this hacker gag may not the sharpest one, but I simply had to put the exclamation mark at the beginning of the phrase. Because in programmers’ lingo it stands for a negation of the text to follow. So, the right way to read this title is: It’s not true that if you grasp all, you lose all!
Bird on wire
These days, as I watch my son growing and getting to know the world around him, I often catch myself thinking of the things that I should teach him to make a positive influence on him at such young age. As a matter of fact, even though I have only the best intentions on my mind, I am more afraid of making a negative influence on him by impressing some negative thought in his mind. And thinking about it, I’ve recognised more than one rule of conduct and of thinking that were impressed in my mind when I was a child. And those rules always become active in similar situations. That is why I’ve decided to remind myself of all the stupid and negative things that we were “poisoned” with when we were little and uncritical. By the time we became critical, it was already too late. The purpose of this blog is to get back to the right track and to change those recorded programs in our subconsciousness.
When you come to think of it, the kind of things that we were being unconsciously taught of when we were kids, it makes a regular horror movie! And it was always with best intentions, in order to prevent us from getting hurt, or to make us eat so that we can grow up properly. But along that way we were taught some programs that have been holding us back all our lives. Most often such programming was done out of ignorance, but often enough it was done out of lack of care.You all know about one of the commonest examples of such parental mistakes, the one mixing feeding and love. Here’s a good one: “Eat everything from the plate, and mammy will love you”. And what happens when the child grows up and breaks up with a boyfriend or a girlfriend? Read more
Our mind is like a thermostat. It will always function the way it is programmed to. For instance, if the thermostat is set to 25 degrees, and the room temperature is lower than that, it will let all heating devices focus their energy on heating the room. But when the room temperature is 25 degrees, the thermostat will command all heaters to stop heating.
Mind is like a thermostat
Have you ever wondered what pattern of functioning our mind follows? You guessed it. Our mind works exactly the same way. Let’s take money for example. If we believe that we belong to the middle class population, or that it’s only possible to make our living by doing a regular job, our mind will make sure that this comes true. The mind always brings us what we believe in. So, in this case it will make sure that we can live normally on our pay check.
But, if by any chance, we happen to get hold of more money from a good business venture, on a lottery, or by inheritance, our mind will give us again what we belive in. We will lose money, spend it, gamble it, share it or otherwise get rid of it until we get back to the situation when we live on the paycheck again. It actually works exactly like a thermostat: it stops more money coming to us after a limit that we set it to is reached.
These things have been proven in practice a number of times. Rare are those who managed to keep their money after winning the lottery. People usually start acting strangely around money, they start to give it away, buy expensive presents, gamble or do such things that will eventually lead to their losing the extra money they received. Also there are people who would put that extra money in the bank and go on living exactly the way they used to. I’ve read about a tramp recently, and about a hundred thousand dollars that were found stuffed in jars in his old barrack after he died.
This is why we need to change our thinking patterns, to change our beliefs in order to achieve success. Read more
I wonder when it was, when we stopped enjoying and started complaining. As babies we knew very well what we wanted, and we always fought to get it. When we were hungry, thirsty, or wet, we cried, asking for a change of such a condition. As toddlers, we simply neglected the fact that the toy we wanted wasn’t ours, or that we were not allowed to go wherever we wanted. We surely knew how to enjoy, how to laugh, and be happy with everything that amused us.
What has changed? We became grouchy, bothered by ever growing number of things. What’t worse, we got used to handling those things, and did nothing to change the pattern.
Born to enjoy
Lot of us live our lives as victims. It is so much easier that way. Those among us, the victims, they sacrifice for their children, for their parents, for friends. They sacrifice while doing a job they don’t like, they are bullied by neighbors when conflicted. They always focus on negative side of reality.
Adults are always annoyed about some irrelevant things. The weather is always bad, too hot or too cold, but never right; there are always some problems at work; there is never enough money. Going out with friends looks like a competition in negativity; we measure and prove who is sicker, or who has bigger pain or more problems in life.
It’s been a while since I’ve decided to put an end to such negative approach. Read more
Although I read it before, recently I bought the book “Law of Attraction: The Basics of the teachings of Abraham“, written by Esther and Jerry Hicks. The book explains the three laws of the universe and in this article I would like to give you a brief overview.
Laws of the Universe
I would like to start by giving you my own piece of evidence that the Law of Attraction works. Today I thanked the law of attraction more than once, because everything was running smoothly, just as I had planned it. The most interesting example, the one that simply amazed me, happened in the morning, when I left home for work. As I was getting ready to leave home, I realized that I was going to be late, and I wished to come to work at 8.10 AM at the latest. I left home knowing that my chances were slim, especially after I realized that I had to come back home because I forgot something. I returned home, and started to the bus stop once again. The way to it leads through a parallel street, so there is no way that I could see the bus coming or waiting at the stop, only once it left the stop. However, something clicked in my mind, and I ran those last hundred feet, although I’ve never done it before. You can imagine my surprise when I saw the bus, usually not very frequent, leaving the bus stop. I was delighted to see the driver stop when he spotted me, even though I did nothing to signalize him to do so. I was utterly amazed, thanked the law of attraction, and waited to see if the traffic would allow me to reach my work in the time I desired. The chances were next to none, but, you guess right, there was no traffic jam, and I got to work at 8.05.
Now, let’s go back to the laws of the universe. There are three of them: Read more
One of the biggest secrets of success is to acknowledge that there is enough of everything we need. If we get rich, nobody will have to become poor because of that. We shall not take anybody’s money. If I succeed in business, my competition will not necessary be ruined. It is not a shame to want success and lot of money. It is bad practice to be frightened of competition and to sheepishly protect what you have, constantly being afraid that someone else could take it away.
The abundance is everywhere
You will not spend all your love if you give it to your partner. When a child is born, you will not love your partner less, as if you had only a limited amount of love available. On the contrary, you will easily find out there’s more love to devote to the child. It is the same when another child is born. You will not love the first one less. The secret is in the abundance! There is enough of everything we need! We just need to find it and attract it. This secret of success says that we have to develop the abundance mindset.
I used to be afraid of the competition. I mean the competition in every way. When I competed in swimming, I used to think more about how fast my rivals would swim, than about my own result. I used to think that it was much better just to be faster, no matter how lousy the results of all of us were. Of course, now I see that everybody should be interested only in one’s own performance. If we do our best, the results will show it. Maybe we’ll be better than others, maybe we won’t, but the most important thing is that we will be satisfied and proud of ourselves. Only then we will not regret if perhaps somebody is better then us. He might be better prepared, luckier or simply more hungy to win. But we know that there will be more opportunities to be the best, and by applying the law of attraction, we’ll get to our goal.
I also used to be afraid of the competition in business. Read more
