“Be careful of your thoughts, for they become your words.
Be careful of your words, for they become your actions.
Be careful of your actions, for they become your habits.
Be careful of your habits, for they become your character.
Be careful of your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
The Dalai Lama doesn’t need to read this article.
But perhaps you do.
Just like the Buddha knew way back in the 6th century B.C., it’s your mind that changes your reality. Contrary to popular belief, human beings aren’t just victims of circumstance. With the evolution of homo sapien cognitive thought came the ability to bend reality.
In this article, you’ll see why.
What Does Manipulating Reality Mean?
When we manipulate reality, also known as bending or changing reality, we use the power of the mind to create, control and transform the world around us.
If you’ve seen the 1999 sci-fi blockbuster The Matrix, you’ll know that Neo is a perfect example of a reality bender. (Although it takes him a bit of practice).
So do you remember the “…there is no spoon” moment?
It’s the scene where the prepubescent kid teaches Neo how he manages to bend a silver spoon using nothing but his slightly freaky baby blues.
It’s a metaphor linked to one cosmic truth: everything you’re living right now, who you are, what you’re capable of, and how you feel about it all…is all in your head. And as soon as you wake up to that truth, you can start changing reality to your whim.
The Power Of Your Mind
That’s not to say that now you’ve read the opening to this article you’ll automatically have the ability to reweld your crockery with your eyes.
But what we hope you’ll realize is that changing reality comes down to what you believe to be possible in your conscious and subconscious mind.
And all that, as you’ve seen in the Matrix, can be done with the right training.
What training?, you ask? We’ll get to that later on in the article.
So the power of our mind is beyond our current awareness as a species, but paradoxically we know that we only use a fraction of its potential. Potential that’s dictated by belief. The problem with potential is that it’s pretty hard to measure, study and perfect. But that doesn’t mean that a select few haven’t begun to push human brainpower to its ever-expanding limits.
Apart from the cast of the Matrix, another one of those people went by the name of José Silva.
Introducing José Silva
As a radio technician in Laredo, Texas, José’s passion for electronics was accompanied by a deep interest in subjects like psychology, hypnosis, intuition, and clairvoyance (aka, reality-bending). So he went about studying it for the remaining decades of his life.
In the beginning, José was far from supported in his studies. His findings were new, and therefore a threat to the world of science of the 50s–that at the time claimed the brain to be mostly involved with ‘the myriad of behaviors we observe in the animal kingdom.’
José, on the other hand, disagreed.
José claimed that, with the right scientific instruction, anyone could develop the ability to take control of their own life by tuning into crystal-clear, compass-like intuition, enhanced creativity, increased learning speed, and deeper relaxation on demand. José believed that changing reality with your mind wasn’t science fiction, but the future of human evolution.
And he found the key.
Presenting The Silva Ultramind System
It turned out that unlocking all of these mental abilities was the surprisingly simple practice of entering into altered brainwave states.
In turn, this paves the way to higher states of consciousness and heightened physical and mental performance.
Little by little, José began to pique the interest of other highly reputable scientists of the time with his revolutionary mental training model. Rigorously backed by science, he named it ‘The Silva Method’.
From then on, The Silva Method continued to grow and on José’s deathbed, the final version was released: The Silva Ultramind System. Today, José’s methodologies are being practiced in more than 100 countries worldwide, in 29 different languages–and millions of people have reaped the benefits, reporting an increase in their ability to change reality through altered states as well as enhanced mental and physical health.
What Are Altered States?
The term ‘altered states’ refers to higher states of consciousness and mind that surpass the waking norm. And you need to access them if you want to change your reality–Matrix-style.
Providing a deeper explanation of altered states of consciousness is difficult, since right now as you read these words and I write them, we’re both in the normal waking human state. But Professor of Psychiatry Arnold M. Ludwig made one of the best attempts at a definition in 1966 when he stated:
“An altered state is any mental state(s) induced by various physiological, psychological, or pharmacological maneuvers or agents, which can be recognized subjectively by the individual himself (or by an objective observer of the individual) as representing a sufficient deviation in the subjective experience of psychological functioning from certain general norms for that individual during alert, waking consciousness.”
You see he said ‘induced by various physiological, psychological, or pharmacological maneuvers’, right? That’s because there’s more than one way to access these states. Some opt for drugs such LSD, ketamine and psilocybin (found in magic mushrooms) to experience these states. But what many don’t realize is that we can access the same altered states organically with the right training.
That’s where the Silva Ultramind System active meditation techniques come in.
And hey, no come-down or side-effects.
How To Use Silva To Change Your Reality
If you’ve always been curious about how to begin changing reality with your mind, the Silva Ultramind System is one of the very best places to start.
The Silva Method teaches you to access the four primary states of human consciousness. Through some light study and meditative practice, you’ll quickly be able to use each one to perform, evolve, live at your peak and start changing reality just like the charming Neo.
The four levels are:
THE BETA LEVEL
Your default level of consciousness when you’re awake and alert.
THE ALPHA LEVEL
A calm and receptive state experienced during relaxation and light sleep. The optimal state for learning, growth, and self-awareness.
THE THETA LEVEL
The state of meditation and deep sleep. Enables enhanced introspection, self-hypnosis, mind-body healing, and more.
THE DELTA LEVEL
The deepest state of unconsciousness and dreamless sleep.
After decades of observation and research, the Silva Method has found that the Alpha and Theta levels of consciousness play the biggest roles in a person’s rapid growth of consciousness and ability to start changing reality.
Undergoing rigorous studies, this system has also been proven to evoke mental skills that are considered uncommon or even impossible for the average brain.
But a word of warning from us here at Mindvalley and the infamous Morpheus:
“This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill — the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill — you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”
