How Health And Well-Being Affect Intuition

All that we do sits on the foundation of health and well-being.

All that we do rests on the foundation of our Health and Well-Being. Your ability to optimize your well-being affects your mood, relationships, sex drive, productivity, the ability to manage weight and especially your ability to access creativity and intuitive wisdom to solve problems.

In these two short videos I share with you some tips to optimize health and well-being as well as activating intuitive wisdom.

In addition, I want to remind you of some of the basics in the hope that you will be motivated to take action. Yes, discipline is important BUT it starts with making a conscious decision to choose health and well-being.

If you have been following my work, you may recall that between 1984 – 86 I developed a serious chemical imbalance due to neglect. I thought I could eat anything anytime and get minimum sleep.

My body became allergic to over 220 different foods. My body had a yeast imbalance and my body became border line diabetic. I went to several specialists to no avail.

The worse part of all this was that I felt like crap, no energy and had serious mood swings. It was awful and it nearly cost me my relationship with Barbara and the risk of alienating me from my children.

Yes, I did my Silva meditations everyday and attempted to program. It’s just that I couldn’t stay awake and focus. I attended seminars to help and kept zoning out and missed the value.

Finally, it kicked me in the butt and I said that’s it. I CHOOSE health and well-being. Once I made this commitment, I began to attract the people, situations and help I needed. I even had a dream that led me to the assistance that actually worked for me.

(Takeaway: trust the flow of ideas and act on them!)

The following is a partial list of easy to do activities that are part of my daily lifestyle. You know this. So allow this to be a friendly reminder.

The Immune system is our own personal army. It is capable of recognizing not only its sister cells, but also able to distinguish intrusive cells such as germs, bacteria, virus, etc. This defense mechanism attacks the invaders, without us giving any orders.

This is why it is so important to have a good immune system. But the system can be weakened by poor nutrition, stress, or negative attitudes or emotions that we do not control or know how to control. Therefore, the importance of learning to take care of our physical body through good nutrition, a routine of physical movement (exercising, yoga, walking), or by learning how to manage stress using meditation and mental relaxation.  

The Immune System can also be protected, by taking care of ourselves from the inside out. 

When we have an attitude where we know how to manage emotions, how to meditate, we are fortifying our immunology. 

When meditating, the brain produces chemicals that are sent to the rest of the body, and favor health. This is the reason why more and more doctors, hospitals medical clinics, are recommending the use of meditation, as a way not only to recover health, but also, what is more important, to maintain ourselves in good health.

The Silva Method offers personal development programs where, one of the main tools is to learn to take care of ourselves physically and mentally.  It includes practical Dynamic Meditation techniques applicable to different aspects of life that allow us to live with good health, happiness and achieve success.

Health Benefits of Meditation: Since the 1960’s scientific journals have published thousands of papers on the effects of meditation on health and wellbeing. 

These effects include: reduction of anxiety, a reduction in allergic skin reactions, less incidence of angina and cardiac arrhythmias, relief from bronchial asthmas and coughs, reduced problems with constipation, fewer problems with duodenal ulcers, less dizziness and fatigue, lower blood pressure in people suffering from hypertension, alleviation of pain, reduction of insomnia, improved fertility, and help in mild to moderate depression.

What Meditation Shows us about the mind: The practice of meditation does indeed change the physiology and activity of the brain and other parts of the body. It also leads to structural changes in the brain tissue. 

The crucial question is whether meditation enables our minds to connect with a mind or consciousness vastly greater than our own?  

This is what meditators have traditionally believed; and this has been one of the principal motives for meditation.  It can help us to transcend our own mind and our own being. The experience of bliss, nirvana or Samadhi is not just about wellbeing, but also about experiencing more deeply the nature of reality.

This is one of the key benefits of practicing guided meditations that keep you aware and focused to get the inner work done. It’s also why I developed my Dynamic Meditation programs to make it easier for you.

Music And Your Health

Music is a powerful ally of our health. When we listen to music, we are not only activating our emotional area with associated memories, but also activating certain regions of the brain involved with movement, planning, attention, learning and memory.

When we listen to music, the brain is producing Dopamine, a chemical that helps improve mood and reduces anxiety, in addition to making you feel pleasure, joy and motivation.

It is proven that music can help control physical pain. That’s why Jamaican composer and musician Bob Marley said: One good thing about music is that when it touches you, you do not feel pain. But that’s not all; music can help you with your physical and mental well – being:

It enhances sleep quality. When you listen to classical music or music with a low frequency – to a certain point monotonous – it is a sleep inducer. 

Controls blood pressure and can help people suffering from headaches or migraines because it reduces the intensity, frequency and duration of headache.

It leads to meditative states. When you listen to low frequency music, it makes the brain work more slowly creating waves of similar activity. The brain synchronizes with the music you listen to. 

Research shows that this stimulus produces therapeutic effects on health because your body is producing chemicals that are beneficial to health. 

In the Silva Method we use monotonous sounds such as the Alpha Sound (10 cycles per second) that helps the person to enter deep levels of relaxation/meditation more quickly, while staying focused. In the practice of relaxation at home, we recommend the Alpha Sound and soft and slow frequency music like baroque music, which produces the same effect. All this helps in the end, the person feels better, refreshed, renewed and calm.

Helps eliminate symptoms of depression. If at any time you feel low spirits or sad for no apparent reason, music can help you recover. Classical music and meditative sounds help to raise spirits.

Helps the patient before and after surgery. Nowadays hospitals are using soft music played on the harp or another instrument, to prepare their patients. Studies have shown that this helps to make surgeries easier, use less anesthesia, and that the patient has a good and rapid recovery.

Practicing Silva relaxation/meditation, using the Alpha Sound and Silva Techniques before and after surgery, leads to the same result: a faster recovery.

Helps cancer patients manage anxiety. It has been proven that music helps patients to communicate their feelings better, manage stress and make it easier to manage pain and discomfort. It also reduces anxiety and improves the patient’s quality of life.

Helps the recovery of patients who have had a stroke. A study conducted in Finland concluded that patients who have had strokes and have listened to music for two hours a day, improve their verbal memory and attention, in addition to having a better mood, compared with patients who did not listen to music.

Eating Slowly

If you’ve been a long – time student of mine, you may remember this strategy that I’ve been teaching for better than 20 years. And now neuroscience reports that eating slowly and savoring each bite for 20 seconds satiates the reward centers in your brain and it also stimulates a circuit involving the prefrontal lobes, thalamus, and caudate. 

This gives you more conscious control over what you choose to eat!  

And because super-slow savoring of tiny bites of food stimulates the satiation and fullness centers in both your gut and brain, you end up eating less and enjoying it more. 

Dr. Andrew Newberg also found evidence to suggest that slow eating may help regulate glucose metabolism in the brain, so you won’t crave sweets as much. But to get the full benefits, you literally have to hold a morsel of food in your mouth for 20 seconds – that’s how long it takes your brain to register the nutrients you are taking in. 
Studies show that it can reduce anxiety, worry, depression, and irritability- the exact same feelings that cause many people to mindlessly overeat. 

How does the brain respond to a single bout of exercise?

The existing research shows that physical activity (even acute exercise – a single session) may protect against neurodegeneration and other aging-related forms of cognitive impairment.

Firstly, across all of the studies reviewed, acute exercise consistently resulted in three main effects: better executive function (the mental processes that help us to plan, focus, and multitask); better mood; and lower stress levels. 

Additionally, the studies revealed that acute exercise activates several extended brain areas. “One of the most dramatic effects,” the researchers write, “is the change in neurochemical levels.”

This includes neurotransmitters; exercise was shown to increase levels of dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, andserotonin. Dopamine helps the brain to learn and is involved in the rewarding circuits. 

A certain level of physical activity seems to be able to increase serotonin, which relieves anxiety and depression, in both humans and rodents. 

Furthermore, a single exercise session seemed to increase levels “feel good” chemical substances that are naturally produced by the brain when we exercise. These account for the runner’s high effect and exercise-induced states of euphoria.

How To Succeed And CRUSH IT in the New Year

There are 4 skills and/or qualities needed to Navigate Life, reach your goals and CRUSH IT in the New Year.

Science has proven it: every human being is trained and conditioned to earn a set amount of income and enjoy a certain level of fulfillment.

The good news is that brain scan studies prove that you can re-wire and strengthen the key areas in your brain that control your conscious AND subconscious.

What is required is applying the right mind- brain-training methodologies and technologies in the right way… so you replace the limiting beliefs, behaviors, and habits that are currently keeping you stuck.

In addition, learning how to release any of your past negative experiences, or fears is critical for you to get to the next level of your success.

There are four skills that are necessary for you to develop in order to truly Take Command Of Your Life.

It is an inside game and these skills are the four pillars to support your growth and effective navigation through the ever-increasing demands, challenges, and opportunities that are a part of Life today.

First, we need to be able to LEVERAGE OUR ENERGY by effectively managing the distresses.

It’s essential to cultivate hope, optimism and generate energy so that we respond to the challenges rather than react.

You can do this by maintaining your daily dynamic meditation practice and develop triggers (3 Fingers Technique) that allow you to stay calm and focused even under pressure.

You’ll also want to implement short Transition Meditations of releasing tension and focusing on your intention as you move through your day’s activities.

Daily movement such as walking, dancing, Tai Chi or any movement you enjoy is also a natural antidote to distress.

Second, seek clarity by asking questions to understand what you really want and WHY you want it.

It’s important that your actions, behaviors, and goals are in alignment with your values and that you maintain your integrity.

Focus on your Life Vision of your BEST SELF emerging in all you do.

Third, Cultivate a RESOURCE STATE of CONFIDENCE based on evidence of your past successes.

Your task here is to develop the confidence that you can figure things out. You do this by remembering and reliving your past moments of excellence.

Fourth, Access your creativity and learn to trust your intuition. This takes the right kind of training and practice to understand – What’s The Difference That Makes The Difference!

It’s not easy and I know you may be struggling and yet here you are making the time to help yourself. I want to honor you and your persistent efforts. I would like to help you.

The Silva Method is a proven system to help you take command of your life.

My best advice is to take the live Silva Method Immersion Of Silva Life & Silva Intuition System. And if you have already, come back for a refresher and upgrade your development.

Practice and repetition are necessary and KEY.

End OF Year Reflection To Stay Motivated And Confident

The End Of Year Reflection Exercise To Stay Motivated And Confident

I recorded this video for you. I believe that you’ll find the exercises very helpful to clear and release the old worn out patterns. And create a life vision of hope and optimism for the New Year.


The end of the year marks a threshold and invites a pause for reflection. It’s a great time to take stock of the year behind and look ahead at the year to come.

As we approach 2019, I invite you to invest some present moment time to reflect and project.

If you’re a Silva Method Practitioner, I recommend you also do this at level and use Mirror of the Mind.

If you are not a Silva practitioner, I recommend you do this exercise in a quiet place. A meditative state is ideal with some creative visualization.

Reflect back on 2018

· What were the lessons learned? Seek their value; free of judgment. BE SELF-COMPASSIONATE. Give yourself permission not to be perfect.

· What talents and strengths did you develop and put to good use?
· What gifts did you give and what gifts did you receive?

Project to a vision of 2019

· How will you utilize the lessons learned in 2018? 
· How will your growth experiences season your choices in this new year?
· What gifts would you like to give and what gifts would you like to receive?

Go beyond Goal Setting!

What does your IDEAL – BEST SELF look like for 2019? And how does it make you feel?


My guided meditation and mini-course FUTURE SELF is a powerful and fun exercise to help you create a vision of the future with hope and optimism. You’ll also access intuitive insights to know how to allow your best self to emerge. You can get yours here.

Another mini-course and guided meditation is Power Programming. It’s the ideal complement to enhance Mirror of the Mind. You can get yours here.


Persist And Adapt To Create A Fulfilling Life

As you prepare to do your End Of Year Reflection, keep in mind that BOTH Persistence and Adaptability are necessary to create a fulfilling life.

In this short video you’ll discover that Persistence is the equivalent to Intention. And a commitment to do whatever it takes to succeed.

Adaptability is equal to Allowing. To apply just enough energy or pressure and to release it with an attitude -“May The Best For All Involved Occur.”


How To Heal Your Body – Heal Your Life and Manifest More

Expressions of gratitude and appreciation promote health and healing for both ourselves and others.

Regularly expressing appreciation and gratitude helps to increase your energy levels, reduce stress, boost your immune system, balance your hormones, and promote heart health. 

2018 has been filled with extraordinary growth and some extraordinary challenges. If this year has been tough on you and those you love, I understand.

You’re juggling a lot. You’ve got blessings — no doubt. But you’re also doing your best to navigate some challenges, too.

You’re so much stronger than you realize.

Be good to yourself. Rest when you can. Remember to laugh and have fun.

I encourage you to open your heart to those less fortunate, your loved ones, and anyone (or anything) that has enhanced your life and to offer a token of thanks.

Have you told someone dear to you that you’re happy they’re in your Life?

This could be in the form of a note, a present, or some other meaningful expression of appreciation. Then watch how your acts of kindness create joy and blessings in the world. 

Our family enjoys the practice of going around the table and each expresses something that they are thankful for.

It’s so cool how at first some hesitate but once we get going, the room lights up. I highly recommend this exercise. Then watch in awe as you begin to manifest.

Let’s consider some further thought on this subject.

A key personality trait that plays a crucial role in any achievement endeavor is GRIT, a term first coined by psychologist Angela Duckworth in 2007.

People who have grit have a strong passion to pursue a long-term goal AND the ability to persevere and persist in overcoming obstacles to achieve those goals, even if it takes months or years to accomplish.

The research suggests that having the quality of grit can predict future academic performance in students and indeed, it plays a key role in every achievement-related outcome. 

You can add more GRIT to your personality by having a GROWTH MINDSET according to brain science.

You can also add more GRIT and by staying healthy and balanced by the daily enjoyment of your Silva Dynamic Meditation practice.

Health Benefits of Meditation: Since the 1960’s scientific journals have published thousands of papers on the effects of meditation on health and wellbeing.

These effects include:

  • reduction of anxiety,
  • a reduction in allergic skin reactions,
  • less incidence of angina and cardiac arrhythmias,

  • less dizziness and fatigue,
  • lower blood pressure in people suffering from hypertension,
  • alleviation of pain,
  • reduction of insomnia,
  • improve fertility,
  • and help in mild to moderate depression.

And with Ken’s and the Silva Method’s Dynamic Meditation you get all these health benefits PLUS the ability to grow and manifest your goals and intention.

ADD these to your library to feed your GROWTH MINDSET.

DOUBLING your wealth, FITTING into your high school jean size, STOPPING a bad or unhealthy habit, or ACHIEVING just about ANYTHING you’ve been putting off…
Becomes more possible through CREATIVE VISUALIZATION!
Creative Visualization: The ability to change your physical and emotional future life simply by using your mind. You know this.
You know it works – because you’ve done it yourself.
Maybe it was on the golf course when you visualized the ball plinking into the hole. Or perhaps you visualized yourself giving an important presentation minutes before all eyes were on you.
Yet, your experience with visualization represents only a mere fraction of its incredible capabilities.
I’m writing to you today to show you a side of visualizing that continues to astonish everyone who discovers its real power. Potent enough to eradicate cancer cells. Effective enough to enhance your life. 
The Power of Visualization goes far beyond a better golf score or tennis game.
Did you know?
  • For 40 years, people have used visualization to help cure cancer? You may remember Dr. O. Carl Simonton, the oncologist who integrated the Silva Method into his practice and mentored many other physicians. (In fact, it’s so effective, many cancer centers now have dedicated visualization facilities.)
  • Visualization is effective in lowering blood pressure, reducing cholesterol, decreasing stress levels, and even saving people’s lives?
  • Visualization played a significant role in almost every major discovery and invention since the beginning of time? (It’s the world’s oldest achievement tool by centuries!)
Whether it’s finding your ideal career, getting that promotion you’ve been wanting, losing those extra pounds, dropping a bad habit, repairing a strained relationship, or simply improving your golf game – you’ve tried to make the necessary changes to improve your life.
Visualization: Still the most EFFECTIVE, EFFICIENT, and MOST WIDELY USED achievement tool. Yet, it’s not always so easy and often you may find yourself struggling with focus and direction. It’s why it’s a mainstay of the Silva Method Immersion where we devote many hours practicing over the 4 days.
Visualization is a skill that you learn to develop, focus and apply to manifest what you really want.
Visualizing is that secret achievement tool that’s been proven to make such an impact. In fact, just 10 minutes a day for 10 days can produce noticeable life-changing results!
Just 10 minutes a day for 10 days …
  • begins to dramatically improve your health
  • begins to substantially increase your wealth, and
  • begins to erase years of bad or unhealthy habits.
10 minutes total – less time than your morning shower – refreshes your entire outlook on life.
The greatest INVENTORS, ATHLETES, and LEADERS already know The Power of Visualization.
“I am deeply grateful that I choose to take the next step, from “listening” to Silva CDs and webinars to joining you in a live seminar. I did not realize how life-giving the experience would be! Your style of delivery of the Silva material is masterful and easily assimilated.
Your expertise in teaching the material meant the content was clearly understood and countless ways in which to utilize it in my personal life experience received! I appreciated that before attending you contacted not only me but each one of us to ensure that you knew what each person’s goals for attending were and then you adapted your content to meet our needs! So wonderful! Thank you!
Ken, another benefit from joining you live was the unbreakable bonds and friendships I created with those I met in your class. It was an amazing experience to be with like-minded individuals who were all on the fast track to creating the life of their dreams~ fueled by Silva techniques that you inspired us with. With deep appreciation for you Ken and to all those I had the honor of taking these courses with!” 
Thank you so much! All the best! Always! ~ Susan F. Canada
And now – it’s YOUR turn to change anything, improve anything, become anything – using your mind! 

Freedom From Anger


Yes indeed, there may be things to be angry about. At times the world seems chaotic and full of uncertainty and misinformation. Anger is experienced when our importance, worth, or intrinsic value as a human being is invalidated. It is perhaps the single most projected emotion.

 Attempting to resist and/or suppress the anger only makes it worse. It is necessary to process the anger in order not to be victimized by it. The risk though is that when we ruminate in anger, it becomes toxic and poses a threat to our health, well-being, and performance.

The Silva Method teaches tools to help us process anger and direct it in a meaningful way. You can use techniques such as Mirror of the Mind, the 3 Fingers technique and the Laboratory tool. The first step, however, is to understand the anger.

We will in this video explore and discover the 5 Types of Anger and what you can do to prevent a toxic buildup.

The 5 Different Types of Anger


  • Resentment 
  • Rage
  • Helpless Anger 
  • Hatred
  • Justified/Good Anger

From Self-Doubt To Self-Confidence

There is a serious malady of the human condition that affects our mood, productivity, energy levels, performance and ultimately it’s what holds us back from moving forward in our lives. Like a disease, it spreads and is even contagious.

You guessed – it’s called SELF-DOUBT. At our core, it stems from low Self-Esteem.

I’ve experienced this in my own life and been a witness to it in my students and coach clients.
How about you? Have you ever doubted yourself and/or second-guessed yourself? 

Have you ever as a Silva practitioner or other asked: “Am I deep enough?” “Am I in Alpha?”  when you do your Alpha Dynamic Meditation? 

If you have, you know where I’m going with this. 
When you doubt yourself, your consciousness moves from the deeper levels of Alpha-Theta awareness to a more anxious, active Beta level. In other words, the self-doubt interferes and prevents you from having a quality experience.

I’m sure you can agree that self-confidence is vitally important when you consider the extremely high levels of uncertainty so many people are feeling these days. Many of you are facing the need to re-invent your health, relationships, and career – finances. There seems to be so much to learn.

Fortunately, you have and use the Silva tools to continue to believe that you can figure things out. I’d like to assist you to do the same. And sometimes you just need to show up, do it and take a leap of faith.

Confidence in oneself comes from experience, wisdom and especially from having evidence that you have indeed made progress and/or enjoyed some wins. It becomes a resource state that enables you to move through life with a higher degree of certainty and FLOW.

You create a resource state of hope, confidence, and certainty by reliving with intense positive emotion a past moment of excellence and lock it in with a trigger such as your three fingers held together. You may remember this tool that you learn in the Silva Life System (days 1-2 of the Immersion).

I do believe in you and your inherent abilities. All you need is practice. Remember 5 minutes a day is good. 10 minutes is better and 15 minutes a day is even BETTER. Make it part of your daily practice and eventually you’ll create a new habit – neural pathway and find yourself just doing it.

Is it time to renew yourself in the Silva Immersion and/or get started?!


There’s nothing more debilitating than not being able to make a decision due to excessive worry. Worry is a common trap that plagues way too many people. It adds distress to the body, weakens confidence and sucks the life right out of you.

Worry is the enemy to productivity.

There are many effective strategies to conquer worry, build confidence and improve productivity.

1. Silva Method graduates will remember how to manage worry and negative self talk with the pattern interrupter – CANCEL CANCEL. It’s a tool Silva teaches in the Mental Housecleaning section.

2. Proper planning through research, study and practice is another must do.

3. Shifting your focus of attention to feel gratitude will change your state.

4. You can transform the feeling of anxiety from worry by shifting your attention to thinking positive, loving thoughts to people you care about — Especially while you are meditating and/or having difficulty getting back to sleep. 

Ken Coscia, the International Training Director for all Silva Instructors, has facilitated transformation and worked with over 200,000 people in 27 nations in LIVE training. Ken is committed to The Silva Method and the mission of enriching the planet by empowering the individual. He has been teaching the work of Jose, Juan and Laura Silva, for over 47 years (since 1971).
