The whole thing started with Jose Silva’s research on mind and human potential. He single-handedly initiated a groundbreaking research that was to change the outlook of millions of people. Even his wife didn’t believe him until she saw the results of this research with her own eyes.
Later some of his friends heard about his unique research topic, got attracted towards it and helped him in various ways.
It is certain that any groundbreaking work has to go through many obstacles and challenges to reach its final success. And it hasn’t been easy for Silva either. By chance, Silva met the Director of the Mind Science Foundation, San Antonio, Taxes – Dr. J. W. Hahn. He got attracted to Silva’s work and continued to collaborate with Silva.
Came to the attention of scientists:
Through Dr. Hahn, the news of this research spread to different parts of the country. Many scientists were interested to know more about it. Indeed the research found a relevance. And Dr. Hahn played a leading role in bringing it to the public .Various scientists and professors like Dr. Fitz, Dr. Puryear, Dr. Robert Barns, Dr. Richard Makenzie , Dr. Fred , got interested and met Mr. Silva and also put valuable association.
A helpful visit:
Now it became a hot topic of the time. The HOD of Psychology at Wayland Baptist University, Dr. N. E. West inspected Silva’s findings. He was impressed and said that this was the first time he had seen such a valid scientific research work on ESP.
Dr. West invited Silva to present a lecture to the psychology students at the college. The visit was successful.
Hearing from Dr. West, his friend Dord Fitz, an art professor, invited Silva to speak to his art students. Many students expressed interest and more than 80 students participated in the Silva Method course. Gradually, the Silva Method spread to different parts of the country and abroad, by which millions of people have benefited.
Dr. Hahn conducted a large survey to prove the validity of Silva’s research to the Mind Science Foundation. Survey forms were sent to approximately 10,000 Silva graduates, of which over 1,100 completed and returned the forms with their feedback. The numbers were staggering and the result was convincing.
Not only were they getting the results they expected when they joined the Silva Course, but
through Silva method, they were solving problems they never dreamt possible .
To substantiate Silva’s claims, Dr. Hahn conducted another survey, in which all people who had attended a basic lecture on the Silva Method , reported their experiences. Silva’s argument is further substantiated because all the people who were involved with the Silva method were all satisfied.
Dr. Han’s initiatives led to the study of the Silva Method at various universities, to learn how we can consciously control our different brain waves. The professors as well as everyone were surprised by the results, because it was impossible to believe that self-controlled brain waves could be controlled by any special method.
Silva Method - can control brain waves:
Later Dr. Han, Dr. Fred and other scientists experimented with the Silva method, which proved that it was possible to control brain waves externally.
Based on several years of research and its results, and of course analyzing both psychological and physiological aspects, Dr. Fred came to the conclusion that it was possible to control brain waves externally using the Silva Method.
Now, the control over Alpha rhythm is associated with relaxation of mind and body, reduction of stress, intuition success and many other benefits. And Silva Method works on that particular region. Many persons including students using this technique, report that they have a particular sensation of deep relaxation and they are able to control their brain waves.
Some of the Research Results of Silva Method:
|Various Region||Research Findings||Seeking Benefits||Reported benefits|
|Improving Health||A survey on 1107 participants reveals that the improvement of health after using Silva Method is more than twice percent of those who are seeking health benefits.||24%||49%|
|Improving Relaxation||The ability to enter deep levels of relaxation is important for reducing potentially harmful physical and mental stress and tension.||34.8%||70.3%|
|Improving Sleep||A natural sleep is essential for our physical and mental well-being. And BLS participants understood the greater facilities of natural sleep.||10.7%||34.9%|
|Controlling Brain Waves||Several surveys and findings proved that the alpha waves are controllable by any individuals.||53.75%||73.2%|
|Enhancing creativity and intuition||Our creativity depends on our imagination. Through Silva Method , development of imagination creativity is possible.||29.1%||39.5%|
|Controlling Dream||Following Silva technique, one can control his dream where he can remember and also can use it for practical problem solving.||6.8%||25.8%|
|Improving Memory||The Basic Lecture Series includes the incensement of memory functioning and stored information.||21.4%||32.2%|
|Psychic Awareness||It is thought that success is important in the development of intuitive sense. Silva technique helps in enhancing intuitive sense.||28.57%||85.7%|
Some more research results on Silva Method:
|Research on||Research Findings||Control Group before||Control Group after||Silva Group before||Silva Group after|
|Personal Self-image||The BLS participants who previously claimed to be healthy before using the Silva method , were now noticing the differences in their behavior ,nature and health.||64.48||64.31||57.95||68.43|
|Moral - ethnical Self-image||Research revealed that one can achieve significant improvement by maintaining balance , harmony and integration of emotions.||69.51||69.82||64.87||72.43|

|On Behavior||Basic finding facts say that BLC students has find several changes in their behavior.||110.03||110.03||105.4||116.9|
By reviewing many researches ,studies and scientific data, it can be said that the Silva method is logical, scientific and definitely effective. The theory on which Jose Silva developed such a novel technique is undeniable. The Silva method is very important and effective for all people who want to thrive in life , reach their goals and live a beautiful life.
