Imagine being so powerfully intuitive that you’ll never second-guess yourself ever again.

Imagine how that affects your career – when you’re always making the right business decisions, and choosing the most trustworthy partners. Imagine being able to tune in to exactly what your partner is feeling, and how that brings the two of you even closer. Imagine being able to rely on a strong “inner voice” that gives you confident ideas and answers to help you overcome any challenge.

All of this isn’t just reserved for the lucky few who were blessed with good fortune.

Because we believe that strong intuition is something ANYONE can develop.

Using Silva tools and techniques that have been perfected over 5 decades, you too could unleash the high-level intuitive potential you were born with. Just as over 6 million Silva graduates the world over have done.

But before we reveal more about our tools and techniques, let’s dive into the subject of intuition a little deeper. Let’s explore…

What exactly is intuition – and why it’s the most important ability you can possibly have.

Many use the term ‘sixth sense’, ‘hunch’ or ‘instinct’ to describe intuition, which suggests that it is the ability to access, process and use information without the use of the five physical senses. But this can’t be further from the truth!

Think about it: when someone describes an intuitive experience, they usually say things like “My heart told me…” or “I saw the whole thing in a flash…”. Which clearly shows that the information was received through their five physical senses. This means: by increasing your awareness of how you process information, you begin to strengthen your sixth sense – your intuition.

And when you begin to train this very learnable ability, you begin to experience great changes in every areas of your life, as these examples and stories will show you…

Intuition can enhance your creativity

Best-selling author of “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” Richard Bach credited The Silva Method openly in Harper’s Bazaar magazine for providing him with the idea of his book. He heard a voice say the title of his book during a walk one night, and his honed intuition told him to act upon it. He wrote what would become a book that sold over a million copies, and even made the cover of Time Magazine.

Richard’s sudden surge of creativity didn’t happen by chance. Professor John Mihalasky, who explored intuition (which he called ‘precognition’) extensively in his years at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and came to this conclusion in one of his articles:

“ The creative idea does not happen by accident. The mind organizes the experiences, facts, and relationships that it has stored in its banks, and stretches out to utilize all information it can get. But the creative idea comes from a mind that has information that it organizes into a path that has not been taken before. Precognition is one way that information not available to those other thinkers working with the normal channels and sources of information comes to creative people.”



Intuition can help you make breakthroughs in your career

Prof. Clancy D. McKenzie, founder of the American Mental Health Association, used Silva techniques since 1969. With the help of the creative insights that he gained from them, he made a major medical breakthrough in understanding the cause of schizophrenia and depression that has helped more than 9,000 patients. He explained that he used Silva techniques to program his dream, after which he would wake up with intuitive ideas and solutions to problems he faced.

Intuition helps you excel in your physical pursuits

Legendary basketball player Larry Bird was once asked: “How is it that you can make those no-look passes, without looking, without knowing who is behind you, and make them perfectly?”

His answer: “I see the play develop before it happens.”

What he practiced was visualization, an essential practice when developing intuition. He pictured himself doing the right thing at the right time, which made it easier for him to execute effortless plays. Those who watched him believed couldn’t believe his great instincts. What they didn’t realize was that his instincts were something he continuously honed.



Intuition can help you improve your relationships

When you are able to experience a strong degree with your partner, you can create deeper, more meaningful relationships. Which is something Silva student Helen Fowler can attest to. She said, “My marriage became stronger and more loving, I didn’t react to situations like I used to and I became Happy again”.

Of course, a better intuition can also help you connect better with others outside of your personal life. And for some, this could save lives. Sam Gonzalez Silva, a long-time Silva instructor, once served as Director of Crisis Services in Nevada. He had to make quick decisions in the emergency room when people who attempted suicide were brought in. He had to make quick evaluations if they needed to be committed or not. He sent many of them home, and never lost any of them.

Intuition allows you to identify your calling or purpose

We are all born with unique talents and gifts that too often get lost, forgotten or left behind to bury themselves deep in our subconscious. Through a special process called the Visioning Exercise, which is a deep theta meditation called Connection to Life’s Purpose, you are able to get glimpses of your life’s calling and allow those glimpse to surface to your consciousness for you to act upon and live a purpose driven life.



Intuition can help you make better financial judgements

Our intelligence is connected to all information. Intelligence uses mind to move around in both the physical and spiritual dimension in search for information to solve all kinds of problems through decision making. Mind, through its ability to see, hear, taste, touch and smell, is what intelligence uses to attune to anything beyond the barriers of time and space. Accurate and useful information for decision making is always available. The Silva Method process for enhancing your intuition is an effective method that allows you to clear up any mix signal you may be receiving and have a clear connection to “knowing” allowing all of your decisions, including financial ones to be the best.

When every area of your life has been enriched by intuition, you achieve a state known as high-level intuitive living.

And here’s where you begin…

Activating High-Level Intuition In Yourself – With Intuition Enhancement Technology.

Every night as you fall asleep, you experience the pinnacle of your intuitive senses.
Your mind is at its clearest, and this is when your sharpest instincts emerge.

The day Jose Silva unravelled the mystery of the human mind.

Over 5 decades ago, Jose Silva, a radio engineer and psychology student in Texas, made a shocking discovery.

The wires used in radios have a certain level of resistance. When this resistance is reduced, more electricity can flow through them. Which made him wonder: Could the same rule apply to the human brain?

Using hypnosis, mental programming and meditation techniques, Jose worked with his children to find the answer.

By inducing his children into the Theta level while they were conscious, they began to experience inexplicably dramatic boosts to their test scores at school, and found their learning, problem-solving abilities and creativity soaring to previously unreachable heights!



Not Long After This Discovery, Something More Remarkable Happened.

One day, Jose brought his daughter Isabel into the Theta level, and began asking her questions from a schoolbook as he always did to gauge her memory retention abilities.

Her answers were as accurate as ever, and everything was normal, until suddenly, he dropped the book in shock because…

Even before he had asked her the question, she gave him the exact answer!

Isabel, had in every sense of the word, read his mind!

As far as Jose could tell, he had just stumbled on the formula to activating high-level intuitive senses. He tested the formula on 30 more children, and sure enough, all of them demonstrated the same psychic ability as Isabel!

This is how The Silva Method was born, and to this day, over five decades later, over 6 million graduates in 110 countries have been using Intuition Enhancement Technology to experience total intuitive living.

From business to wellness to the arts…

The Silva Method is practiced and endorsed by CEOs, artists, actors, writers, athletes, personal growth leaders, healthcare professionals and scientists, who are leading the way in bringing conscious practices to the world:

RCA Records, Green Mountan Coffee and The Arnold Agency have used the Silva Method of mind control training


Many top-shelf corporations, including RCA Records, Green Mountain Coffee and The Arnold Agency, have sent their employees for Silva training. Benefits have been reported in various areas, including heightened intuition, amplified creativity, improved business management, enhanced motivation and better stress management. Robert Stiller, the CEO of Green Mountain Coffee, says “Silva demonstrates that there is no limit to what the mind can do.“

The Arts

Author Richard Bach credits the Silva method to finish his book, Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

Many artists, writers, actors and performers use the Silva Method to enhance their creativity, focus and intuition, and come up with highly creative ideas. Notable students include the Opera singer Marguerite Piazza, singer Vicki Carr, and actresses Carol Lawrence (the first live theater actress to get a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame) and Loretta Swit.

Best-selling author Richard Bach credits The Silva Method for the inspiration to help him finish his iconic book, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, which went on to sell over a million copies and was featured on the cover of TIME magazine.

The Silva Method helps athletes with concentration and mind control.


Russell “Bucky” Dent, a baseball player with the Chicago White Sox, began studying The Silva Method in 1975. In 1978 he was named Most Valuable Player at the World Series. Dent has been quoted as saying, “The Silva Method helped me with my concentration, and it helped me to relax before the pressures of a game.” To this day, many world-class athletes use the principles of The Silva Method to visualize their desired outcomes, improve focus and keep their minds and bodies in optimal condition. And to also intuitively make the right game-altering decisions. Silva has an especially huge following in sports that encourage a mind-body approach to physical excellence.

Personal Growth

A wide range of top personal growth leaders, coaches and authors use, endorse and are influenced by The Silva Method. Wayne Dyer says, “Anything with the name Jose Silva as an author has my vote before I open to page one,” and Shakti Gawain says it allows you to “tap into a deep storehouse of knowledge and wisdom.” The Silva Method even inspired her best-selling book, Creative Visualization.


The Silva Method is a crucial component of effective mind-body healing to improve your health.

Many healthcare professionals and scientists have integrated the principles of The Silva Method into their healing regimens as a crucial component of effective mind-body healing. Dr. O Carl Simonton, founder of the Simonton Research Institute, which practices and researches imagery therapy for patients, calls The Silva Method one of “the most powerful single tools that I have to offer patients.”

We do this through an optimized curriculum that includes the Centering Exercise, guided meditations, visualization techniques, intuition-enhancing tools and Theta level exercises, which guide our students into an even deeper level of mind than Alpha.

Author Mark Robert Waldman is confident of the methods taught by Silva International.

In 2010, Mark Robert Waldman, the world-famous neuroscientist and bestselling author of How God Changes Your Brain said…

“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.”

The Silva Method is backed by scientific evidence and validation.

Shakti Gawain uses Silva to access intuitive mind

“One of the earliest workshops I took was the Silva Mind Control Course… The most important technique I learned in that course was the basic technique of creative visualization… Our rational mind is like a computer… The intuitive mind, on the other hand, seems to give access to an infinite supply of information. It appears to be able to tap into a deep storehouse of knowledge and wisdom…”

Shakti Gawain, author of _Creative Visualization_ and _Living in the Light_
