“You are learning to use more of your mind and to use it in a special manner.”
“When you awaken in the morning, go to the bathroom if necessary, then return to bed. Set your alarm for fifteen minutes later in case you drift off to sleep during the exercise. Close your eyes and look upward, behind your eyelids, at a 20-degree angle. This position of the eyes alone will trigger the brain to produce Alpha.
Now, slowly, at about two-second intervals, count backward from one hundred to one. As you do this, keep your mind on it, and you will be in Alpha the very first time.”
“Sit in a comfortable chair or on a bed with your feet flat on the floor. Let your hands let loosely in your lap. If you prefer, sit cross-legged, in the lotus position. Hold your head well balanced, not slumped. Now concentrate on first one part of the body, then another, to consciously relax it. Start with your left foot, then the left leg, then the right foot, and so on, until you reach the throat, the face, the eyes, and finally the scalp. You will be amazed the first time you do this at how tense your body was.
Now pick a spot about 45 degrees above eye level on the ceiling or the wall opposite you. Gaze at this spot until your eyelids begin to feel a little heavy and let them close. Start your countdown from fifty to one. Do this for ten days, then ten to one for another ten days, then five to one from then on. Since you will no longer be limited to the mornings for this practice, establish a routine of meditating two or three times a day, about fifteen minutes a session.”
“The first step is to create a tool for visualization, a mental screen. It should be like a large movie screen but should not quite fill your mental vision. Imagine it not behind your eyelids but about six feet in front of you. You will project onto this screen whatever you choose to concentrate on. Later there will be other uses for it.
Once you have built this screen in your mind, project onto it something familiar and simple, like an orange or an apple. Each time you go to your level, stay with just one image; you may change it the next time. Concentrate on making it more and more real—in three dimensions, in full color, in all its details. Think of nothing else.”
“If you do this and nothing else, you will experience what William Wordsworth called “A happy stillness of mind,” and more, a deep and durable inner peace.”
“You will now see why the simple exercise of visualizing an apple, or whatever else you choose, on a mental screen is so important.
“Now, before you go to your level, think of something pleasant—no matter how trivial—that happened yesterday or today. Review it briefly in your mind, then go well into your level and project onto your mental screen the total incident What were the sights, the smells, the sounds, and your feelings at that time? All the details. You will be surprised at the difference between your Beta memory of the incident and your Alpha recall of it. It is almost as great as the difference between saying the word “swim” and actually swimming.”
“We are going to connect a real event with a desirable one that you imagine—and see what becomes of the imaginary one. If you operate according to some Very simple laws, the imaginary event will become real.”
“You must desire that the event take place. ‘The first person I see on the sidewalk tomorrow will be blowing his nose” is so useless a project to work on that your mind will turn away from it; it will probably not work. Your boss will be more agreeable, a certain customer will be more receptive to what you are selling, you will find satisfaction in a task you ordinarily find disagreeable—these are prospects that can engage a reasonable measure of desire.”
“You must believe the event can take place. If your customer is overstocked with what you sell, you cannot reasonably believe he will be eager to buy. If you cannot believe the event can reasonably take place, your mind will be working against it.”
“You must expect the event to take place. This is a subtle law. The first two are simple and passive—this third one”
“introduces some dynamics. It is possible to desire an event believe it can take place, and still not expect it to take place. You want your boss to be pleasant tomorrow, you know that he can be, but you may still be some distance from expecting it. This is where Mind Control and effective visualization come in, as we will see in a moment.”
“You cannot create a problem. Not may not but cannot. This is a basic, all-controlling law. “Wouldn’t it be great if I could get my boss to make such an ass of himself that hell be fired and I'll get his job?” When you are working dynamically in Alpha you are in touch with Higher Intelligence, and from the perspective of Higher Intelligence it would not be great at all. You may trip up your boss and get him fired, but you will be entirely on your own—and in Beta. In Alpha it simply will not work.”
“Choose a real problem that you face, one that has not yet resolved itself. As an illustration, let us say that your boss has been ill-tempered lately. There are three steps to go through once you reach your level:
Now, at the count of five you will be wide awake feeling better than before. You can be confident that you have just put forces to work for you in the direction of creating the event you want.”
Once it becomes really yours, improves in effectiveness as you use it.”
“Just bring together the thumb and first two fingers of either hand and your mind will instantly adjust to a deeper level. Try it now and nothing will happen; it is not yet a triggering mechanism. To make it one, go to your level and say to yourself (silently or aloud), “Whenever I join my fingers together like this”—now join them—“for a serious purpose I will instantly reach this level of mind to accomplish whatever I Desires"
“How free we are when we dream! The barriers of time, the limitations of space, the laws of logic, the constraints of conscience are all swept away and we are gods of our own fleeting creations.”
"Your words have POWER"
“Day by day, in every way, I'm getting Better and Better"
“Repeat twenty times in succession”
"Twice a day"
“When the will and the imagination are in conflict, it is always the imagination that wins”
“Positive thinking works beautifully on a reducing diet Never think once about what you are giving up but concentrate on what you are getting.”
Self healing procedure :
The first is to begin—in Beta—to feel yourself becoming a loving (and therefore a forgiving) person, and to consider love as an end in itself.
Second, go to your level.
Third, mentally speak to yourself about step one: Express your desire to achieve a thorough mental housecleaning—to use positive words, to think positively, to become a loving, forgiving person.
Fourth, mentally experience the illness that is troubling you. Briefly.
Fifth, quickly erase this image of your illness and experience yourself as completely cured.
"Visualize their disease"
"Visualize their treatment"
"Visualize their body immune mechanism"
The very first time you try it you will be convinced and, with variations you may develop, it may become a permanent part of your lives together.
Go to your meditative level and project this person onto your mental screen as he is, with whatever ailment is troubling him. Place another image on the screen to the left, showing something being done to correct the problem. (If you have not met the person and are not yet ready for case work, try to learn beforehand what he looks like to make your visualization as accurate as possible.)
Now project onto the screen—still farther left—a vivid image of the person in perfect health, filled with energy and optimism. In deep meditation you are acutely receptive to what you say to yourself. This particular moment is crucial to developing a conviction that the happy image you now have of the person is the real one —not that it is becoming real or that it will be real, but that it is real. The reason for this is that at this meditative level, at Alpha and Theta, your mind is in league with causes.
“What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall receive them.”
Student ask, “At what point does a person know he has gotten out of Mind Control everything there is to get?”
Silva replied, “When you realize what enormous powers we were all born with, when you see in your own experience that these powers can only be used constructively, you come to realize that there is a dignity and a purpose behind our presence on this planet, to evolve and this evolution is now our own, individual responsibility.”

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
