Q: I have been doing the first exercise after reading The Silva Mind Control Method by Jose Silva. Have you heard of him? Well, I count back each morning from 100-1 to enter Alpha, but nothing happens. I am really struggling. Any suggestions?
I have heard of Jose Silva and the Silva Ultra Mind program and have used the techniques personally for years. In my opinion it is a great program and have had very successful results, so this is a program that I do recommend. One of my favorite Silva Ultra Mind techniques is the Creating Mental Rapport where one goes into the altered state of consciousness and remotely and mentally connect with people you may know and want to get into contact with but aren’t able to connect with them in the physical world or connect with those you haven’t even met yet to create a positive connection. For example when I have had important meetings with people I haven’t met I will use the Silva Ultra Mind Techniques to take myself into a higher state of consciousness and imagine myself connecting with whomever it is that I am meeting with and having a successful and positive connection. In my experience it has worked every time and the people I am meeting with almost seem so familiar like we have already had the chance to meet. Silva Ultra Mind techniques are great for quieting the mind so that one can practice on a daily basis to become more intuitive.
As for the last part of the question, if you are experience problems counting down into the alpha state and feeling as if nothing is happening KEEP PRACTICING! These days our minds are so overstimulated due to the stressful world that we live in and the many ways that there are to communicate, television, email, cell phones, social networks, texting etc… on top of our already crazy busy lives. It can really take a while to learn how to quite the mind from all of the outside stimulation! Once you learn how to quite the mind, one can do so very quickly.
I remember when I really started meditating with the guidance of one of my dear spiritual mentors Gracie. She has our group sit in silence for 15 minutes while sitting straight up in metal folding chairs. Seriously, I thought I was going to go out of my mind – that 15 minutes literally felt like 5 hours to all of us beginners! After all of these years of practicing it now only takes me a few minutes to quite down and go into my psychic self, for years I would have to meditate for longer periods of time to get to that space, now it is fast and easy. Although I still love a great long meditation as needed, it seems to cleanse my soul.
Although I highly recommend the Silva Ultra Mind I also strongly recommend for those who are working on developing intuition to do so with a trusted and well respected mentor. As we are developing there are so many questions that an individual will have. I have taught Psychic Development for many years now and still have students that I have worked with years ago contact me with questions about their development. I personally have worked with many well respected mentors and have found this to be the most supportive in my own personal development with psychic ability.
