-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.

The Silva Method continues to wow! me

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 Fs to the Deans List
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.

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?
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
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.

From Thought to Form

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.

Create In-Joy and Share In-Success… Lamar

The Power of Collective Consciousness

[Note: This is written by a local new thought minister.]

October 10, 2008 – “It’s not what they take away from you that counts.  It’s what you do with what you have left.” – Hubert Humphrey

 

With all the news of late it’s easy to fall into the morass of gloom and doom.  When you look at your most recent investment statement, you may be tempted to focus on all that you’ve lost.  It’s the topic of the day. 

 

We’ve been in such a booming market that people seem to forget there is risk involved in any investment, even the ‘safest’ ones.  Risk and reward are equal components and possibilities in any investment, whether that investment is financial or whether it is an investment of the heart. 

 

We don’t control the world, we don’t control the financial markets, but we do participate in creating the world and the financial markets by how we react, what we feed into them and what we really expect to happen next. 

 

Right now the biggest expectation is that things will continue to get worse before they get better.  Guess what?  When most people believe that, feed that idea with fear and fixate upon every move up and down in the market, that expectation becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. 

If we believe that things will eventually get better, why do we believe that they have to continue to get worse first?  Just to see what we can take, test new territories, set new records?  Why not skip that experience and get moving onward to the recovery? 

 

This is no different from what we each go through individually any time we have a challenge or a disruption.  We choose how to react, what to focus on, what to give our energy and attention, what to expect and then what to do with what we have. 

 

The difference is that we are all experiencing this together.  We are watching the power of collective consciousness create our collective experience.  What a great lesson in the Law!  What a great opportunity to grow beyond our current level of thinking that created this experience!  Let’s learn from this and point out to people how we can use this very same process to affect change for the better. 

 

What the world needs now is a committed group of individuals who will stand in the midst of this ‘crisis’ and know something better.  I invite you to join me in doing that.  Do that right in the face of the ubiquitous stock ticker that seems to be everywhere all of the sudden.  Do this right in the face of the bleating newscasts.  Do this (with love) in the face of those yelling about how the sky is falling. 

 

We will get through and beyond this; the only question is what will be the quality of our journey through it and how lovingly we treat each other along the way.

 

I choose love, I choose brighter ideas, I choose to absolutely know that good is right here and now available to all.  That’s what I can do, and so can you.

 

Life is truly wonderful!

Share this with those you care about.

The 40-day Prosperity Process

[Note:This is an announcement I sent out to my list. If you want to be kept informed please click this link, fill out the information and send it.]

Your Built-In Powers

Do you remember the first time you found out that you could close your eyes, take a deep breath, relax your thought and your stress was transformed into relaxation?

Do you realize what a momentous event that was?
This showed you the ultimate answer to all of life’s woes: You have the controls and they exist within you.

No matter what the circumstances swirling around you, you can always make a choice to close your eyes, take a deep breath, relax your thought and cause relaxation. Then you are in the driver’s seat for life. From here you can focus on your goals and receive creative ideas.

Remember this as you listen to the horrible news about the economy. You have the controls. Always. You may not have had anything to do with causing this situation but you do have absolute control over your perception of it. The way you perceive it sets up your behaviors and actions… which leads to your life results. This is the beauty and the foundation of any of my private sessions and classes: to teach you how to master these controls.

Begin your change now

A friend reminded me of a 40-Day Prosperity Program that  I want to pass along. It is free and you can begin right now.

I first bought the little green Abundance Book while living in Denver in the late 80’s. Then I had the opportunity to be at a retreat in New Braunfels several years ago where the author and his wife led classes. When I first did this, the words didn’t make sense but my abundance started increasing. Over the years I did this program so often my little green book fell apart. I am so grateful for Glenda for reminding me about this program. I began it that day and am currently doing it. John Randolph Price has now posted this online for free.

Here is the 40-Day Prosperity Program. Be sure to order the book; it explains the program well. But start the program today.

I suggest 2 additions for you to consider

Follow his instructions. I also have written each day’s contemplation onto an index card that fits in my shirt pocket. That way, throughout the day, at a red light, or having just caught my negative thoughts, I will pull this out so that my attention gets focused in the right direction.

I also carry my top goals written on an index card so that I can refer to them throughout the day. Again, this serves to refocus my mind on my immediate life direction.

More resources to remind you the truth

I am posting this on my new blog Creative Mind News at www.CuriousMindNews.com. I welcome you to post comments there as you have questions, comments and experiences.

I will be posting other items and resources on my Creative Mind News blog as I find them. So check there for continuing information.

Witness more of your world… Choose a new thought.

Better & Better,
