On this page we will answer some of most often asked questions:
Q "Is the Silva Method hypnosis?"
A No, hypnosis is that state of mind that you can be taken to where your mind functions inductively only, not deductively,
where you only answer questions; you don't ask questions. The deeper you are taken, the less control you have, and the more
you forget. The brain waves of a person active under hypnosis are 20 cps. In the Silva Method you are in control of your
own mind and you can ask and answer questions. The Silva Graduate's brain vibrates between 7 - 14 cps or Hz, and after practice
the brain vibrates at the 10.5 Hz or cps which is the center of Alpha brain wave frequency. With more practice, the graduate
of the Silva Method can master Theta brain wave activity, where biological or emotional intelligence resides for correction
of emotional problems.

and come in-touch with your spiritual essence.
Q "What is the content of the BLS?"
A The BLS (Basic Lecture Series) is comprised of four sections:
MC101 Controlled Relaxation
MC303 Effective Sensory Projection
MC404 Applied Effective Sensory Projection
With MC101 and MC202 individuals learn to relax the spinal and autonomic nervous systems at will and effective techniques
to eliminate pain, enhance memory and intuition.
With MC303 and MC404 the powers of imagination and creative visualization
are introduced and subjective communication is learned for optimum functioning.
Q "What is objective and subjective as stated in the Silva Method?"
A Objective concerns itself with the discovery, appreciation and application of the external world and objective
senses for successful living. Subjective involves the discovery, appreciation and application of the mental senses and of
the kingdom within for successful living. The Silva Method offers a harmonizing of the two as a means by which persons can
educate themselves subjectively through psyche-orientation at their own pace.
Q "What is Psychorientology?"
A Psychorientology is the new science researched and discovered by Dr. Jose Silva. It means educating the mind to
function consciously within its own dimension. That means becoming aware of the boundlessness of human potential and learning
how to actualize this potential for the betterment of self and humanity.
