- REDUCE STRESS and direct physiological benefits of Dynamic Relaxation
"Based on the newest findings from Harvard's recent genetic study on the effects of relaxation, breathing awareness, and positive guided imagery, I feel confident that many of the methods, as taught by Silva International, can stimulate gene expression in the brain that are involved in reducing physical and psychological stress and boosting immune functioning."

- POSITIVE THINKING with ACTION
Other mind development or motivational trainings are great at telling you the importance of optimism and staying focused and positive. The Silva Method actually gives you a STEP-BY-STEP, proven process for mastering this skill. The Silva Life System holds the secret of unleashing the Powers of Your Mind. It is really the "secret" behind "The Secret". The Ability to Function Consciously in a deeply relaxed and focused state of mind and body
Upon studying Silva’s training, Dr. James Motif of the Psychology Department in Hope University, Australia, found that it led to an increase in adherence to moral and ethical standards, positive attitudes to family members and better social self-image. It also led to a decrease in self-criticism. In addition, Dr. George Desau, in a study on Silva graduates at the Incarnate School for Girls in San Antonio, Texas, found that our curriculum boosted ego strength, helped prevent shyness, increased trust and cooperation among students and led to greater self-assurance and warm-heartedness.
- HEALTH Benefits
In the Silva Life System you will learn a variety of mental visualization methods designed to accelerate your mind and body’s natural capacity for physical and emotional healing.
These results have been studied and endorsed by a variety of medical practitioners. For example Dr. O. Carl Simonton, a world-renowned cancer therapy researcher, described the Silva Method as one of the “most powerful single tools” that he can offer to his patients.
The Silva ULTRA Healing 2-day training course is accredited towards selected medical Diplomas in some European Union countries.
- HABIT CONTROL
I Are you overweight? Do you smoke? Do you have trouble with alcohol, motivation, diet, exercise, or sticking to personal resolutions?
With the Silva Life System, you apply techniques to reprogram your mind like a computer, so you can free yourself from bad habits and instead replace them with good ones—without the usual relapses. No willpower needed, minimal effort is involved.
It’s a process that we believe is far more powerful than simply self-hypnotism, affirmations.
- LEARNING, raise IQ and GRADES
Silva has in various cases been shown to raise IQ and to boost memory.
In a study conducted by the Autonomous University of Tlaxcala, Mexico, it was found that 67.7% of university students improved their IQ classification after using The Silva Method.
Researcher Lillia Alcira Vacca concluded, “From my perspective, and the results of my work with young people, the Silva Method could and should be taught to students in all academic levels in every country,
The Silva Method 4-day training course is accredited towards Teaching Degrees in some European Union countries.
- BOOST CREATIVITY
Studies show that creativity is enhanced when functioning at the Alpha level.
Listening to the Silva Life System, you will learn how to enter the Alpha level at will and then to use your creative mind to help you think of solutions to problems, enhance creativity or let inspiration flow.
Silva graduates have used this process to develop patents, start new businesses, or to create works of art, literature and music. Here are some examples:
Bestselling author Richard Bach praised The Silva Method publicly: “Mental discipline and creative visualization are what’s behind the power of the Silva Method,” he said in an article in Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Bach also credits inspiration from The Silva Method as having helped him finish his best-selling book, “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”.
Band leader Dr. Severinsen has composed music while at his Alpha level. In a newspaper article, he claimed it helped him connect better with his own spiritual life, and in doing so he became a much better person.
World renowned sculptor Harry Jackson said it brought him the peace of mind he had been searching for.
- ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS
The Silva Life System is more than a motivational self-help course. Motivational self-help courses leave you on a high for a few days but people often revert to their old ways after several weeks. Not so with Silva.
Studies have shown that the Silva programs lead to you becoming permanently more self-assured and positive. But most of all, you learn to think bigger, set higher goals and seek to achieve things that contribute to humanity.
Whether you’re 12 years old or 80 years old, Silva makes you think bigger, and plants in you the unbreakable desire to accomplish and do more with your life.
Dr. Charles Garfield, former NASA researcher and current president of The Performance-Science Institute in Berkeley, California, talks about a startling experiment conducted by Soviet sports scientists.
The study examined the effect of mental training, including visualization, on four groups of world-class athletes just prior to the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. The four groups of elite athletes were divided as follows: Group 1: did 100% physical training. Group 2: did 75% physical training, 25% mental training. Group 3: did 50% physical training, 50% mental training. Group 4: did 25% physical training, 75% mental training.
What the researchers found was that group 4-the group with the most mental training-had shown significantly greater improvement than group 3.
Likewise, group 3 showed more improvement than group 2, and group 2 showed more improvement than group 1.
The results were astonishing. Who would expect that athletes training mentally would be able to advance further than their counterparts who were training physically?
Garfield said, “During mental rehearsal, athletes create mental images of the exact movements they want to emulate in their sport. Use of this skill substantially increases the effectiveness of goal-setting, which up until then had been little more than a dull listing procedure.”
With the Silva Life System, you learn to practice such mental rehearsals. The results can be very significant.
- SLEEP BETTER and DREAM CONTROL
Silva teaches you to “command” your mind to let you fall asleep when you choose to. It also shows you how to set your internal clock to be able to wake up anytime-without the use of an alarm clock. Imagine how much productivity and energy you will gain by always having a good night’s rest.
You will also learn a wonderful technique to help you remember your dreams-and even to ask for dreams that could contain the solution to problems. Throughout history, people have credited dreams with helping them develop new ideas. The inventor Elias Howe got the idea for the sewing machine through a dream. Paul McCartney came up with the song “Yesterday”, in a dream. The structure of the Carbon-6 molecule was discovered through a dream.
Now you can use your dreams to help boost your creativity and inspiration.
Silva recognizes that everyone is born with intuitive abilities, and that anyone who learns how to manifest these abilities can function at a highly intuitive level. Through our proprietary scientific and time-tested process, you’ll learn how to use your inbuilt psychic abilities in everyday life, and use your “gut feeling” for a happier, more successful and more enlightened life.
A research project conducted by Dr. George Maycock at Appalachian State University in North Carolina demonstrated that students who completed Silva training showed a significant increase in creative and intuitive functioning. Of the 30 students who participated, 25 showed gains in intuitive abilities.
Four of the other five (who did not show improvement) were already functioning in a high intuitive mode before the training. Intuition is valuable for students and adults alike. One researcher found that 70 percent of gifted or high-IQ students were predominantly intuitive, while only 39% of students in regular classes were intuitive.
