Today is the birthday of Jose Silva, one of few people who truly inspired me to explore my potential and made me interested (and really obsessed 😉 ) with a mind control. Although he is not with us anymore, people all over the world attend The Silva Method/Silva Mind Control courses and use his techniques. I learned about him and his research many years ago and also attended a course. I just loved it and I still do!!! Jose Silva was the one who sparked my interest in self-development, curiosity in my potential and never ending drive to self-improvement. Thank you Jose Silva!!!!
Amazing, inspiring person, researcher, author of many books and creator of The Silva Method.
Here are my favourite quotes by Jose Silva
“Every day, in every way, I am getting better, better, and better.”
“Probably the single most valuable tool we have is the mental imagery technique.”
“When persons learn to function mentally at the deeper levels of relaxation of mind and body, creativity is enhanced.”
“Mind Control is not hypnosis; it more nearly approaches self-hypnosis. Persons learn to get a fuller attention of the mind, perhaps because it is no longer bombarded by as many external stimuli when it is relaxed. With this fuller attention, they are better able to direct the mind to do what they want it to.”
“The more you meditate, the deeper you go within yourself, the firmer the grasp you will have of a kind of inner peace so strong that nothing in life will be able to shatter it.”
“Positive thinking is always valuable, but positive thinking in the relaxed state is immeasurably more so.”
“A word about meditation: In everyday speech it means thinking things over.”
“The greatest discovery you’ll ever make, is the potential of your own mind.”
“The discovery that human intelligence can learn to function, with awareness, at altered levels of mind, will go down in history as the greatest discovery of man. It is sure to change our concepts of psychology, psychiatry, mind, and the subconscious.”
“There is no such thing as a problem without a solution, only problems for which we do not yet have enough information to know what the solution is. When you have enough information, it is easy to solve a problem.”

I also found this amazing old footage of interview with Jose Silva by his daughter Laura Silva. It perfectly outlines the basics of The Silva Method. (It’s about 30min long)
