“It gives us the ability to awaken with that bright idea or solution to a problem”

Prof. Clancy D. McKenzie, founder of the American Mental Health Association, uses Silva techniques since 1969. With the help of the creative insights that he gained at the alpha level, Dr. McKenzie made a major medical breakthrough in understanding the cause of schizophrenia and depression that has helped more than 9,000 patients. He explained that he uses the Silva techniques to help his patients in many ways: “ I first learned the technique from the Silva training in September, 1969, and I have been using it ever since. You may have heard about problems being solved or discoveries being made during sleep or during the dream-state. These mostly are sporadic events, in which people just happen to awaken with a bright idea. The programmed dream is different. It gives us the ability to awaken with that bright idea or solution to a problem, any night, at will. When you fall asleep you reach just as deep a level of consciousness but you are unaware of this state and how to use it. Utilizing the techniques, you will be able to spend one minute prior to going to bed to formulate a question, and one minute when you awaken to retrieve the answer. There are two techniques I use, and more are taught in the Silva training program. The first technique is to decide to have a dream about a problem, and decide that the interpretation of the dream will reveal the answer. You further must decide to awaken at the very end of the dream, remember it and write it down. The second technique is to decide the mind will work on a particular problem throughout sleep, and that when you awaken, your first thought will be the answer.
