How many levels of brainwaves do we have and can we access them while being conscious?

Jose Silva, the founder of The Silva Method, did extensive research on brainwaves. He showed through his studies that when your brain is in alpha wave level you are actually able to reprogram yourself. He showed that it is possible to enter into the alpha level without falling asleep.

He found out that you can train yourself to stay conscious at the same time as you connect to the subconscious.

When we are conscious and wide awake our brainwaves operates at 14-21 cycles/second - at the Beta level.

When you go to bed at night your brainwaves pattern slow down from the beta level of 14-21 cycles/second (conscious level - alert/working level) to between 7-14 cycles/second when you enter into the alpha level (relaxed/reflecting level)

This is when you feel yourself relaxing. Your mind quiets down and your body is relaxed. Your are still conscious, but you are able to get in touch with your subconscious.

At beta we prey on each other; at alpha we pray for one another Jose Silva

There are 4 brainwaves patterns and addition to beta and alpha we also have Theta and Delta

Beta: 14 cycles/sec or more - we are awake and alert

Alpha: 7 - 14 cycles/sec - we are in a state of physical and mental relaxation. At this level we can re-program ourselves

Theta: 4 -7 cycles/sec - we are in a deep meditative state.

Delta: 1 - 4 cycles/sec - we are asleep.

The lower the cycles/sec the more the mind quiets down and the more we get in touch with the higher intelligence as Jose Silva called it.

Driving a car - "dipping into alpha"

Have you ever experienced driving for a long time by yourself and when you finally reach your destination you can't remember the last 10 miles?

Why is that?

It is because you are "dipping" in and out of the alpha level. Your left brain is concentrating on the driving and your right brain is just drifting away in a thought world. It is sending out brainwaves at the alpha level.You can be thinking of complete other things than driving and still you are able to handle yourself in the traffic.


When going to sleep you can use affirmations and creative visualization to reprogram your belief system. Picture yourself in the situation you desire. Make the image in your mind vivid and alive. Include all your senses: smell, touch, sight, hearing and taste.

If you want a better relationship - picture yourself in a perfect relationship. Feel it as being real. The mind can't tell the difference between an image you create or a real experience. The more vivid and alive the picture the better.If your desire money - picture yourself with an abundance of money - picture yourself being surrounded by money everywhere. Picture money raining down from the sky and onto you.

You can also use pre-recorded subliminal messages to re-program your self when going to sleep. Some vendors claim that subliminal message programs will accelerate your mental, emotional, and spiritual growth in ways that will amaze you. It will stimulate the creation of new neural pathways between the right and left hemispheres of your brain. Hence your brainwaves patters will change for the better.

There is a lot of research within the audio technology field and you can shop around for a wide range of pre-recorded messages - everything from "how to have a financial abundance" to "finding your ideal partner". The ideal time to play these messages is when you are going to bed since the brain slows down its activity and goes from beta to alpha level.

The Meditation Program is using advanced audio technology to bring the user down into mid-delta more

Jose Silva discovered that we can train our ESP - Extrasensory perception often referred to as the 6th sense.We can train our ESP to be more clear voyant, perform remote viewing, experience premonitions, awake the healer in you and more. ESP can provide you with information of the present, past, and future; as it seems to originate in a second, or alternate reality.

Quotes from Jose Silva

The greatest discovery you'll ever make, is the potential of your own mind.

How much help you get, from higher intelligence, depends on how big your plans are. The bigger your plans are - meaning... how many people will benefit - the more help you will qualify for

Do to others only what you want others to do to you

There is no such thing as a problem without a solution, only problems for which we do not yet have enough information to know what the solution is. When you have enough information, it is easy to solve a problem.

All programming for prosperity should be built on spiritual foundations. The first step is to enter the spiritual dimension, the alpha level, and determine what your purpose in life is. Find out what you are here for, what you are supposed to do with your life.

Thanks to Jose Silva millions of people are able to enter into the alpha level and reprogram themselves for a better life.
