Silva exercises involved a lot of visualization. A picture leaves a strong impression and activates the creative side of the brain. One exercise involved imagining an entity that would serve as our "personal helper" or "guide". We could seek guidance in dialogue with this imaginary source. Good ideas would come forth . . . maybe in a dream.
Okay, if this is too "far out" for you, just skip this entry. There will be many more.
If you're still with me, try the dream thing. Before going to sleep, say to yourself: "I will wake up knowing what I need to know." Pay attention to those dreams.
Personal note: During the Silva weekend, I imagined my entity as a weathered Mexican man. Several years later, when I was lost on a road in Arizona, my imaginary friend materialized as a real man working in a service station. He smiled and pointed me in the right direction.
