TITLE: SILVA MIND CONTROL for Success and Self-ConfidenceAUTHOR/NARRATOR: Hans DeJongCOPYRIGHT: AUDIO RENAISSANCE TAPES, INC. 1990DISTRIBUTED BY: ST. MARTIN'S PRESS, NEW YORKIn every person's life, one experiences the highs and the lows of his or her experience. However, it is quite unbearable to see people sulking in every corner of a room, all by themselves, feeling alone and lost in their never ending quest for one insurmountable answer to a perplexing query: why am I a failure?In this light, this author would bring forward one solution that might help alleviate this very troublesome illness that affects ALL of us. Yes. You read it right. ALL OF US.During my adolescence stage, I never felt so insecure in my entire life. I always felt defeated, isolated, lonely and miserable. I would always cling to my idea then that to be successful, one has to be popular.WHO IS HANS DEJONG?Mr. Hans DeJong is a practitioner of the Silva Method for many years and is a trainer in this field. He has received the World Cup in recognition of his accomplishments. Mr. DeJong's expertise in the mind/brain/body field has made him a popular guest on radio and TV talk shows, as well as a widely sought-after instructor and seminar leader.WHAT EXACTLY IS THE SILVA MIND CONTROL METHOD?Mr. DeJong clearly desribes this fantastic method as a "means of taking control of one's mind, brain and body". He further illustrates this by enumerating the four fundamental brain waves that every body has to bring forward a picture of a naturally balanced being. These are (from lowest to highest) beta, alpha, theta and delta. His objective is to raise one's awareness of achieving the ALPHA state--the state where the mind is at its peak and the body is at its most receptive stage.This program is a double audio cassette with mini book that summarizes the basics of Silva Method. No other publication of this kind comes close the simplicity of this presentation.Side A of the first audio cassette contains a brief introduction of the program which is then followed through by a concise and thorough discussion of the four mental states. During the course of the discussion, Mr. DeJong also inserted some excerpts from one of his lectures to further elaborate and explain his methods.Side B, on the other hand, introduces the student/listener to the proper method of achieving the alpha state.
This is done in a very simple, easy to understand manner. The student/listener is led into a series of proper breathing exercises and mental focus. This tutorial ends with a 5-minute practice with Hans DeJong occasionally leading the student/listener to achieve alpha state.Sides A and B, respectively, of the second audio cassette contains a 15-minute long alpha state sound for continuous practice for the student/listener. Mr. DeJong also warns that the use of this second audio cassette is strictly for home use only.CONCLUSIONThis author found this double audio cassette program to be a "PLATINUM" collector's item. Not only does it deliver what it promises but is also tackles the primary target of this program: to counter misbelief and misplaced personal criticisms that plague most individuals. Mr. DeJong will help one to negate and, eventually, flush out bad vibes and permit ONLY positive vibes and renew dampened spirits.The saying, "misery loves company", is deamplified and rendered inutil in this package. Mr. DeJong clearly defies negativism and promotes positivism and clearness of thought through carefully planned steps in making one's life better and more successful in the long run.This program is a MUST-HAVE for anyone who, at this point in time, still suffers the pangs and angst of negativity and loThe time for TRUE INTERPERSONAL healing has begun and Mr. Hans DeJong is more than willing to share his time, efforts and experiences with you through this double audio cassette program.Years passed and I never felt so good in all of my dealings either with my friends or with myself. Being popular, after all, was NEVER the answer. Being IN CONTROL is. And I have to thank this splendid program for this. I hope the same goes well, too, for anyone who would grab hold of a copy of this double audio cassette program. This one is worth every cent of one's hard- earned money.
