Attend this mini-class to receive an explanation of how this Mind Mastery class will benefit your life. You will experience a few mind-directing experiences and have time for Q&A. Bring your friends and co-workers. Come have some fun learning what lies in your future by unleashing your Mind’s potential through this proven educational system that has already helped millions of people around the globe.
Note the first time Silva Mind Mastery, aka Life System, class is being taught in San Antonio is on the weekend of June 27-28. View Larger Map
Flora took the Silva Intuitive Mind class in April. When she came to take the Silva Life System class at the end of May, she told me something that made me pause. It showed her immediate benefit of taking the Intuitive Mind class.
She told all of us that ever since that class she has known, automatically, what her clients would need in a meeting BEFORE they meet. To be clear, BEFORE a meeting her mind knows what is going to be needed by that client. Therefore she is even more prepared to serve her clients.
She said that she’s not using any particular technique to detect this information… it just happens. It just comes to her mind.
This is the way this amazing subjective educational system works. When I am using a script to train your mind at its optimum frequency for learning, I say that these subjective reference points will be used by your mind at any time in the future when necessary. It becomes an automated response just like your mind knows how to automatically detect the nuances of colors in your world. It now knows how to detect the nuances from the Quantum Energy/Intelligence of life.
Then consider how this sort of useful intution, on cue, would help you live a better, richer and fuller life.
Quantum Physicists tell us that all of us, all items seen and unseen is Quantum Energy vibrating. In every molecule of Quantum Energy lies Intelligence which can be accessed. The Silva Method is the most globally-established subjective educational system that teaches people the methods to access this Intelligence, on cue. It is proven with decades of research.
Check out the calendar and sign up when you are ready to live a better, richer and fuller life.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises. -Demosthenes

Free Preview for the Silva Life System class
This is a mini-class and an explanation of how it can benefit your life. Special discounts for the class(es) are provided to attendees. Bring your friends and come have some fun learning this proven system that is helping millions of people around the globe.
Unfortunately the San Antonio place fell through where I was to have this Free Mini-class Preview for Silva Life System. To keep the date and time, I have had to move it to New Braunfels, 30 minutes from the previous location. Details are below.
If you can host some people at your home in San Antonio (or know of a place) I will come back down for an evening preview, or a couple of them, sometime before this class.

Thank you for your understanding, flexibility and support as I remotely plan how to bring these life-betterment mind skills back to the San Antonio area.
May your life be better and better… every single day.
I know people who get my e-mails hear me touting the benefits and promoting these classes. What may not come across in this two-dimensional typewritten medium is the impact that my heart feels from my student’s successes. There is nothing in this life as rewarding as witnessing student’s burgeoning personal power and watching them make their lives better and better.
Here are three recent stories that just happened…
From 2 F's to the Dean's List
From a couple of F’s on report cards to the Dean’s List
This happened Monday. I want to acknowledge someone in college who was a B and C student with a couple of F’s who just found out that he was just named on the Dean’s List at his University. He took the Silva Method original BLS class where he learned the student skills that are now in the Silva Life System class. The very next term he went from C’s and B’s to B’s and an A. Now he is on the Dean’s List. He also tells me that he has found a joy in doing very well that was not there before. Major Congratulations Andrew, in Austin.!
The specific student skills of the many different life skills learned in the class include:
Improving comprehension, retention and recall of material read
Improving comprehension, retention and recall of material from a lecture
A unique 3-Pass Test-Taking method that allows the student to recall information that was at first forgotten while taking the test, even when you don’t have a clue
If you have read the best-selling Silva Mind Control book written by Jose Silva (I have copies), the founder and researcher of the Silva Method, you will know that this is the very origin of what is now known as the Silva Method. A couple of his children came home one day with some very bad grades. He asked them what was wrong. They said that they had studied and knew the information but got nervous while taking the test. From his research he knew that when you are in fear you do not have access to the part of the brain that has the information you have studied and already know. Thus he created a technique to train his children to de-stress and relax their mind and body… on cue while taking a test. This, plus he taught them how to ‘index’ learned material in the brain in a way to make it easier to recall and have superior comprehension. With these skills Jose’s children’s grades improved so well that the neighborhood parents had him train their children, whose grades promptly improved also.
The body's natural state is health
Healing occurs when there is the environment for the body’s natural health to come forth
When I was doing yard work I picked up a slab of old concrete which shattered in my hands, a piece of the concrete sliced my hand in the fatty part of the thumb below the knuckle. The cut was only about an inch across but it must have been deep because it splattered blood as it sliced me and blood was just pouring out. The first thing I thought was I was definitely going to need stitches. I went inside and ran the cut under water, cleaned it, and wrapped it in a paper towel and raised my arm up to try to stop the bleeding but the blood just kept pouring. I wanted to stop the bleeding so I calmed my mind and gave complete focus to the injury and told it to stop bleeding. Within 20 seconds the bleeding completely stopped and it wasn’t even wrapped in the paper towel.
After I got the bleeding stopped I sat down, went to level and visualized my injury healing. I pictured the open cut sealing up like a zip lock bag and then my hand being completely normal. After meditating, I put a band aid on the cut and tried not to move or use that part of my hand for a few days. After 3 days I was able to use my thumb and hand again, not fearing opening back up the cut, and couple of days after that my hand showed almost no signs of being cut!
In the Silva Life System class we teach a hand levitation technique to enter the theta level of mind. In this technique we train you to develop Glove Anesthesia at the frequency of your biological intelligence.

How much does relaxation matter?
A husband notices a more relaxed wife
At the Silva Graduate meeting this past Sunday someone told me that her husband told her that she is a more relaxed person in life. She then told me that she is not worrying about things like she did before and she is feeling more relaxed and trusting that things will turn out. Ever since she took the Silva Intuitive Mind training in April she has listened to the Long Relax exercise every night. Tami T., Austin, Texas
de-stress your mind and body
I tell every class to get this CD and listen to it at least once a week for a year. She chooses to listen to it every night and her husband is seeing the change in her way of managing life. Briefly I say to do this because every difficulty, problem or concern in life is at its base a tangle of stress that is in the thought process and/or is in the body. When it is in the body it is more likely to lead to disease since it is a dis-ease within your form. In the class I cover the science behind this extremely effective exercise.
This exercise is 35 minutes in length. A medical doctor who took the class last year told me that he put it on his iPod and listens to it when and where he finds the time. If anyone wants to get this Silva Method Long Relax CD that I recorded I will discount them to $17 including shipping to the contiguous 48 states. These retail for $17 + shipping and packaging costs. Click here for this special.
I have a tendency to keep talking about this but… you know, this all speaks for itself along with the millions of stories across the globe over the past decades.
Having moved back to Houston from Saudi Arabia in the mid-1980s I got involved with my most influential personal growth teacher ever. To this date no person has ever had such a profound influence on guiding me to go deep within myself for the answers to my life as Frank Natale. I had taken the Silva Method BLS class in Kuala Lumpur about four years earlier.
When Frank Natale said “Thoughts Create Your Reality” I was perplexed and confused, but most of all I was intrigued and curious. I was in the first week of his six-week Results Course which taught people how to do goal setting, declaring who you are in life and multi-dimensional reality creating all mixed with the new mind science that is called Quantum Physics. That night after class I drove downtown Houston pondering the idea that every single building, every highway and road, every park and home… all of them began with one person’s thought. That is all they were in their embryonic phase. The seed for form is thought.
Then I thought, well what was the process to go from thought to finished building? This is the Creative Process of Life. This is part of what was covered in that six-week class. That one person with the thought had to be creative in developing the plans, finding the financing, working with like-minded people and he or she had to remain focused, determined and on task. If he or she gave up then the goal was not accomplished.
It is important to realize that thoughts are just the beginning point. It takes continued focus and action to make it come into form. This is one of the concepts that people have used to bash the movie The Secret, quite often for their own gain. This movie does mention taking action. It just chose to focus more so on the origin of what a person has in their life: their thoughts. And what a great gift that movie brought to human consciousness. It opened up millions of peoples’ minds to their own power.
Let’s look briefly at that process from thought to form. Realize that since I have been teaching and training since the 1980s I can expound on each of these steps as there is a wealth of information in and about each aspect of creation. I do this a lot in the Master Your Mind = Master Life class; also called 28 Days to a Better Life because of its unique format. www.28daystoabetterlife.com. I am working to bring that original six-week Results Course into Austin as I was trained by Frank to teach it. I would like to know if you have any interest. If so, please contact me and that will let me know to schedule it.
It is important to realize that each of us has tens of thousands of thoughts daily. There is no way that you can pay attention to that many thoughts and do anything else in life. Therefore we filter these thoughts and make choices on which ones we will hold in our mental space for further contemplation. The reason thoughts creating your reality is a concept that garners such attention is because no one, until the moment we actually hear this concept, has ever told us that we can pick and choose our thoughts. It is crucial to realize that Your Mind is Your Dominion. Not a single person can tell you which thoughts to pay attention to. At some level it is always a personal choice. This is a very important realization to have so that you can being to create the life that reflects your desires. Select the thoughts that will get you where you choose to be and discard those that will not. It is that simple. It just takes training and practice to develop the mind-muscle that gently and consciously lets go of those unwanted thoughts.
Once you have chosen the thoughts that you want, there are then two steps to empower them. First write them down on a goal list. Writing them down sends a message to your brain: I am paying attention to these thoughts therefore I must want this in my life. After you have them on your goal list and review and imagine them daily, the second way to empower these chosen thoughts is to speak them. The vibrational energy that your voice produces is another strong signal to your physical senses that this is to come into form in your life. This is why gossip and talking of worrying thoughts is so detrimental to our lives. It gives it some power in your life and tells others that this is what you focus on. Is that how you want to be perceived?
One caution on speaking your goals. ONLY speak these goal-thoughts to supportive people. Do not allow yourself to drain away possibilities by entertaining other peoples’ limiting thoughts. That is their limits; not yours. Just discard those thoughts. If you are going for something that other people in your day-to-day life would not comprehend then just do not tell them. Simple. This is also why it is energizing to have like-minded people around you. This is why I offer a discount when two or more friends/family members sign up for the classes at the same time. I encourage hanging out with those you can share your dreams with. Consider joining or forming a MasterMind group. Ask me about that if you want.
Another important note about sharing is that sometimes it is best not share with anyone, at least for a while. If it is something that is very far outside your current reality then the first step is to convince yourself it can/will happen. Once you have accomplished this, then you share it. And in some cases you never share it until it is created into form. I have a few of those.
Once you have written your goals and shared them appropriately then you will start taking action on the opportunities that will start appearing in your life. There is a part of the brain, the Reticular Activating System, that recognizes what you are focusing on as a goal. This opens up the filter of your mind to be able to see the opportunities that will lead you to your desired goals. This is why when you decide that you want to buy a blue VW convertible it is as if Volkswagen all of the sudden puts hundreds of them on the roads you travel.
The good news is that as long as you stay focused on your chosen goals they must happen. The flipside is that when you get distracted by those pesky, limiting thoughts do not pay attention to them. If you ‘give in’ and just hold these limits in mind then you have just let go of your goal.
There is so much more to this topic. Some aspect of this is in each class I teach and in each coaching session I do.
In summary, here are the steps from thoughts to form:
– Clarify what you want. Include details and colors.
– Claim it and write it down as if it is already accomplished
– Surrender limiting thoughts and refocus on your chosen ones
– Share appropriately
– Hang out with like-minded folks
– Act on the opportunities that come to mind
– Receive your life as you desire it to be
One final step… share your successes with me. I LOVE hearing success stories. Plus sharing your success with someone sends a message to your mind that you accomplish what you choose to set as goals. This builds self worth and value.
I was recently talking with a couple of friends about creativity and these list of qualities and thoughts came out.
Creativity seems to be so elusive to the normal mind yet everyone is doing it all the time. You created your career that you have and can re-create it whenever you choose to. [Isn’t re-create, recreate, an interesting word. It takes re-create-ing, recreating, to re-create your life.]You create what you say to someone. You create answers to peoples’ questions and to life challenges.
Life is a creative endeavor. Look around and acknowledge your creativity. Then realize that you can be creative whenever you choose to… it just takes recognizing that you already. If you want to enhance your ability to be creative on cue, when you need those answers, then take the Silva Method classes. It is simply an educational system that teaches people the mental ability to channel creativity.
There are qualities that exist whenever you are being creative. Some of these qualities include:
Usually you’re also joyous
Definitely have to be light-hearted, ie no attachment to outcome, no expectations
You have surrendered to the process
Scientifically you have shifted from left-brain logical to right-brain ‘no time, no space’ creative Mind
It will always feel like you are making it up… because you are
You are tuned into the unknown.
So, take the reverse approach when you want to be creative. Access within you the above qualities after you have posed the question that you want an answer to. Go about life and the creative idea will come.
The main downfall appears to be that as most people get older the fear of the unknown causes them to not want to do anything different. It is easier to stay where you are rather than risk change. It is easier to live a comfortable life in discomfort rather than doing something different. That works for many. And when you want something different in life you have to do something different. Ultimatley it’s a choice.

Background about teaching in Austin and, now, San Antonio
Ever since I have been actively teaching in Austin I have received dozens of phone calls/emails from people in San Antonio and the surrounding areas asking me to come down to teach. I told each person that I need a point person in San Antonio to organize everything. Someone came up in January and took the Silva UltraMind ESP class and she has agreed to do this plus she has the space for a class in her and her husband’s church in the north part of town.
Sylvia Hodges was teaching in San Antonio and now has stopped. She has graciously agreed that I can teach there. Silva International has approved this change. Thank you.
I am committing to you, the graduates, to teach in San Antonio, do previews and come down at least once after the first class to conduct a graduate meeting and work with one or more of you to run these meetings regularly. I can be there more often as long as I can ask your assistance to help me do this in whatever way you can help.
Opportunities for you
Anyone interested in helping please let me know. Some types of help will allow you to waive the seat fee or earn you money. Here is where I can use assistance:
– Putting flyers up in businesses, centers, restaurants, gathering places. I have been told of the Blue Star in the south town arts area and there are places to post there.
– I have also heard of two major Wellness Centers where classes are held. I am certain if these were approached they would let their people know about it. If someone knows the names of these, please let me know.
– Find the different websites and media where free announcements will be made to the public; event websites, newspapers, TV and radio stations. I am told of The Current newspaper and have found their website. I can work with you on public relations and press releases.
– Sales. If you are experienced at sales contact me. I will pay commission for enrolling people, groups and companies in the different classes available.
– When a graduate brings someone new you do not have to pay the $50 seat fee, which helps me to pay for the room expenses. For each additional person you will receive $50, depending on the amount they pay for tuition.
– Host a graduate meeting in your home or other space; I’m sure it would be good to have a few meetings in different parts of town.
– Learn how to lead a graduate meeting.
– Let me know of other spaces to hold classes in.
The more you get involved the more I can offer this for you and your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers and city.
The more you get involved the more I can work with you to practice the techniques for this purpose which will help you polish the use of the techniques for your own life.
Contact me if you want to attend, have someone who is interested and want to help in anyway and with any questions. I have some promotional material I can provide including flyers, pens, cards and rack cards (mini-brochures).
* Silva Method Graduates: Please make sure that I have your contact information including name, email, phone(s) and address, when you first took the class and from whom by sending it to my email email@example.com.
I sincerely look forward to building a presence in San Antonio with your assistance and helping you to help your city get better and better.
Many blessings and much thanks… Lamar Irwin
You are only a NEW thought away from living the life you desire.
I look forward to seeing you and your friends June 7th in New Braunfels.
When someone says this to you take the cue and back off.
Usually with arms folded someone says “I don’t want to talk about it.”
I’ve heard that before…and, just maybe, I have felt it and said it before. LOL
Referring to the definition of Effective Communication as when both people involved are willing to change as a result of this communication this is a sign of not wanting to change. This is the cue to you that they do not want to hear any new information and they do not want to change… at least in that moment.
Send them love and seek another opportunity to communicate.
It is all about the frequencies
Remember what Einstein said. “Problems cannot be solved with the same mind set that created them.” or “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” It seems there are so many variants no one knows the original quote or maybe he said in many different ways.
How this applies: Our mental frequency tunes us into a matching stream of thoughts we receive and play with in our heads. When we are upset we receive a matching stream of thoughts. And when we are in joy and happiness we receive a different stream of thoughts that matches our frequencies. We can tune our mind to the frequency of thoughts we want to play in.
Therefore the person who says “I don’t want to talk about” is in that level of thoughts. Nothing wrong with it. We have all been there.
What we can do is hold peace in the space that they can move into. We don’t say anything; just find peace and love in our heart about the person and the situation. If we hold the upset that energy stays and keeps everyone stuck. Someone has to move out of it to break the spell.
Do something different to get something different in life…
I just watched an interview with Tom Bergeron on Good Morning America. He says that he began meditating in his twenties to handle an anger problem. Now he says that before he hosts Dancing with the Stars he meditates while everyone else is frantic and bothered with glitches and problems. He said that he opens up to the possibilities of what might happen in the show (this is being Present In the NOW) and is his most relaxed of his day while he is actually hosting the show. Others consider him the fastest-thinking TV show host. I can understand this. This is the way we are designed to operate.
Hmmm… This an abject lesson in what I talk about in the Silva Method classes. When we meditate we are opening up and accessing our right hemisphere, the Creative Mind. This is the Mind that has no limits including time and space. It is plugged into the Infinite Potential. To be scientific, this is when we tap into the Quantum Intelligence of which we are a droplet of the whole ocean, so to speak.
In the Relax Your Way to Success class I’m teaching on April 25th I am teaching people to go enter this Dimension of the Mind. In three hours learn the detrimental effects of stress and learn how to de-stress the mind and body on cue. Doing this is entering a meditation state of mind.
Spend some time in a meditative state of mind. It’s good for you.
Here’s a great talk about the hemispheres of your brain by a doctor in brain science:
This is one of the best things that makes me grateful to be an instructor for the Silva Method. I get phone calls like this every once in a while and it always makes my heart smile.
This lady just called from San Antonio. She and her husband first took the Silva Method class decades ago. They value the impact it has had on their lives from using the Silva Method techniques so much that they are coming to this next class and bringing their grandson who is 19 years old and heading off to college. She told me that she will do anything to provide her grandson advantages in life. Great grandmother.
He will have mind skills that will help him study better by increasing retention, recall and comprehension. Plus he will have the unparalleled Silva Test-Taking Method that allows someone to get the answer to a question even when it is apparently forgotten. Those will help him to excel in college. As his life develops he will have the option to retake the class to deepen his use of the mind skills so as to better adapt to life’s changing situations and to create his life.
Recently I had a call from an older gentleman who sounded like one of the Texas ranchers I grew up around. He said that he had taken the Silva Method class decades ago and how it had impacted his life over these years. He wants to put his granddaughter through the class so that she can have a leg up in life. Note: I need a few more parents who want this for their children, ages 7 to 11 or so, to make this class happen.
Another woman I met here in Austin said her parents took her to take the class when she was 16 years old. I asked her to tell me how it had impacted her life. She said, as a result of these skills, that her self confidence was always strong when she embarked on any new venture. She also said that her sense of knowing herself was deeper so that she feels like she made better life decisions.
I, personally, am grateful that my older half-brother introduced this to me when I was in high school. I was able to finally take it once I had my first job out of college. I was living in Indonesia and took the class in Malaysia. Immediately it made me stand out as an engineer working in the jungles of Borneo in Indonesia; management noticed my improvements. As a field engineer I was able to diagnose and solve problems quicker than before because my creative mind had been awakened and trained to be useful to me as a logically-trained engineer. I was able to stay awake, alert and functioning in days of working without sleep… and… more.
These are great classes that immediately have an impact, sometimes subtle and sometimes obvious. Then with continued practice of the skills and occasionally retaking the classes a person’s depth of awareness is enhanced, mental skills and agility markedly improves and life gets better and better.
I encourage you to consider this class for you and your loved ones. Call with any questions.
When we were children growing up our parents, teachers and other authorities gave us permissions to do some things and restrictions to not do some things. As adults we may not be aware that we still have these rules for life, sometimes living within parameters that no longer serve us and, in fact, hold us back from living our greatest life of service. We are having thoughts that we were given years ago.
I lay out this foundation as a way to present this concept:
You have the right to challenge each and every one of your thoughts.
Does this matter? What does this mean? Why bother?
Bottom line: your predominant thought pattern about a particular area of life brings about the matching results in your life. For anyone who saw the movie The Secret this is how the Law of Attraction works. i.e. If there is an area of life that is persistently not working for us then if we are honest with ourself and pay attention to the predominant thoughts and the resulting feelings we will see that we are allowing negative thoughts to rule our day, predominantly.
I mention ‘resulting feelings’ because our thoughts precede us having matching emotions. Our thoughts are our navigation for where we are heading and our emotions are the fuel that propel us there.
Now that all of that is said, back to the topic at hand. Since your thoughts are leading to your life and your thoughts may be simply repeating those life parameters from your parents and other authorities from childhood… maybe, just maybe, some of those thoughts are not leading your life in the best direction for what you most deeply desire to do. Maybe they are not in alignment with who you are.
As a result, I officially give you permission 😉 to challenge your thoughts.
Begin by observing your thoughts. When you notice a thought ask yourself:
Does this thought lift up my energy? Do I feel empowered?
Is this in the direction that I want to go in my life?
If the answer is no, then choose another thought. Choose a thought that does reflect what you want in life. And entertain that thought. Doing this process of replacing unsupportive thoughts with supportive thoughts will end up altering your predominant thought pattern. This in turn will end up altering your predominant emotional pattern. This all leads to you having your life as you most desire it to be.
It is just The Way It Works.
Give it a shot and let me know how it works for you. Leave a comment and let’s talk about it.
Remember: Thoughts become things so choose the good ones.
Curiosity is the key to making a change; it is a mental energy/state that opens your mind to hear something new.
These are some items from John Mooney sent to me; a friend, and the Silva Method instructor in Corpus Christi, Texas. He’s been teaching for decades and is an exceptionally insightful person.
A master’s awareness of spiritual laws directs him or her to manifest major life changes by working with their thoughts, not by working harder.
Which isn’t to say they don’t sometimes work very long hours, because they do; they just don’t think of it as work. Which also isn’t to say that they all have cool jobs that anyone would love, because they don’t; they just see every task before them, no matter where they work, as a gift to unwrap.
True brilliance is not a function of understanding one’s view of the world and finding order, logic, and spirituality in it. True brilliance is understanding that your view of order, logic, and spirituality is what created your world.
And therefore being forever capable of changing everything.
One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big notice on the door on which it was written: “Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym”.
In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.
The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room. The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up. Everyone thought: “Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!”.
One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.
There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it could see himself. There was also a sign next to the mirror that said: “There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: it is YOU. You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realization and your success. You are the only person who can help yourself.
Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your parents change, when your partner changes, when your company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realize that you are the only one responsible for your life.”
“The most important relationship you can have, is the one you have with yourself”
Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don’t be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses: be a winner, build yourself and your reality.
The world is like a mirror: it gives back to anyone the reflection of the thoughts in which one has strongly believed. The world and your reality are like mirrors lying in a coffin, which show to any individual the death of his divine capability to imagine and create his happiness and his success. It’s the way you face Life that makes the difference.
It’s kind of like you live in a Wizard of Oz world, and you’re Dorothy, off to see the Wizard, the most wonderful Wizard of all, who can grant your wishes, and then some too. With a twist.
You see, this Wizard is no Wizard at all, but “mere mortal” just pretending to have power that he doesn’t really have. But that’s not the twist.
Of course, it turns out that when put to the test, when it really matters, when he really, really cares, the Wizard actually does have supernatural powers. That’s not the twist either.
The twist, is that you’re also the Wizard, the most wonderful Wizard of all.

Study: Experiences make us happier than possessions
Study looks at 154 people in San Francisco
Experiences also make other people happy, not just the individual
Psychologist: Communities should invest in bike trails, parks to create experiences
By Elizabeth Landau
(CNN) — Even in tough economic times, you may find yourself with a bit of cash to spare. You’ve been working hard, and you want to treat yourself. Should you spend it on an experience, such as a baseball game or concert, or a material object?
Psychological research suggests that, in the long run, experiences make people happier than possessions.
That’s in part because the initial joy of acquiring a new object, such as a new car, fades over time as people become accustomed to seeing it every day, experts said. Experiences, on the other hand, continue to provide happiness through memories long after the event occurred.
Ryan Howell, assistant professor of psychology at San Francisco State University, presented his findings this week at the Society for Personality and Social Psychology annual meeting. Watch for more on the study »
The study looked at 154 people enrolled at San Francisco State University, with an average age of about 25. Participants answered questions about a recent purchase — either material or experiential — they personally made in the last three months with the intention of making themselves happy.
While most people were generally happy with the purchase regardless of what it was, those who wrote about experiences tended to show a higher satisfaction at the time and after the experience had passed.
The most striking difference was in how participants said others around them reacted to either the purchased object or experience. Experiences led to more happiness in others than purchases did. A sense of relatedness to others — getting closer to friends and family — may be one of the reasons why experiences generate more happiness.
“When people spend money on life experiences, whether they also take someone with them or buy an extra ticket or whatever, most of our life experiences involve other individuals,” Howell said. People were fulfilling their need for social bonding while having these experiences, he said. Visit CNNhealth.com, your connection for better living
Another reason for increased happiness in experiences, the researchers found, was that people felt a greater sense of vitality or “being alive” during the experience and in reflection, Howell said.
“As nice as your new computer is, it’s not going to make you feel alive,” he said.
Most psychologists who study the phenomenon say people adapt to a new purchase in six to eight weeks, up to a maximum of three months, Howell said. That means the initial pleasure we get from a new possession generally fades in a matter of months.
Howell’s study builds on earlier work by Thomas Gilovich, professor and chairman of the psychology department at Cornell University. Gilovich and colleague Leaf Van Boven’s seminal 2003 paper “To do or to have: That is the question” found similar results about possessions bringing less happiness than experiences.
Experts also point out that people are less self-conscious when comparing experiences than they are about possessions. It will probably bother you more that your friend’s home theater is better than yours than if your friend saw more sights on her South Seas vacation, Gilovich said.
Experiences form “powerful and important memories that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world,” Gilovich said.
It’s not just individuals who should be thinking about investing in experiences when making purchasing choices — policy makers should also keep this reasoning in mind for their communities, he said.
“If you create municipalities with more parks, bike trails, more hiking trails that make experiences easier, then I think you’re going to have a happier population,” he said.
With Valentine’s Day coming up, does this research mean you should give your honey a nice dinner or weekend getaway rather than a material present, such as a necklace or watch?
The issue of happiness conferred to others has been studied less, so the answer is unclear, experts said.
While Howell would expect this principle of experiences over possessions to still apply, Gilovich agreed that it may, but also points out that the act of giving or receiving an object as a gift is an experience in itself.
“Gifts of material possessions often become keepsakes and have sentimental value that increase with time, instead of diminishing like most material goods,” Gilovich said.
