José Silva developer of the Silva Ultramind ESP system studied why some people are successful compared to the average. His research was different than what Napoleon Hill did (Napoeleon Hill for a couple of years studied successful men and drew comparisons between them, he wrote a book about his research the classic called Think and Grow Rich)
At some point Silva concluded that successful people can easily enter the alpha brain waves state and access inner guidance thus be guided intuitively in the correct direction. Jose Silva developed a system (Ultramind) to teach people to access the alpha state and use their inner guidance.
I remember I read a story about artist Dali ;he used to go in deep trance to find inspiration. In the business world they are even more examples of that.
John LaTourrette is martial arts expert he discovered the Silva Method in the 70s he did the basic method with the affirmation ‘Every Day in every way I’m going to get better and better at sparring’, he develop his martial art to the point that he became very fast and no normal karate could see him hit.
In the early 80s Latourrette wanted guidance especially to find a profitable business to start he used the Silva Method to enter the alpha state and he asked for guidance , he was lead to a $5 , 23 pages book called ‘Principles of Personal Handgun Defense’ by Jeff Cooper at first he didn’t understand why he was guided to that book about the mental training required for people interacting with handgun in their jobs, he finally understood that it was a message to write a book about the mental training for people into martial art, it was a totally new concept no one had done it before.
In a completely different style Conrad Hilton the founder of the Hilton hotels was also guided by inner guidance, he said that many of his investment decision were based on his intuition.
One guy that always inspired me was Robert Gilmore LeTourneau, the man was no engineer and in fact he left school at 14 however he was able to conceive brilliant earthmoving equipments. His technique was simple it is also a technique taught in the Silva Ultramind, LeTourneau simply thought of a problem fell asleep with the problem in mind he woke up with the solution, sometimes, he fell asleep woke half conscious drew a complete design for a equipment and then fell back asleep.This is indeed great example of working with inner guidance.
Klaus Joehle author of Living on Love:The messenger developed a system to win the lottery, he describe his system in his book, Greg Kolodziejzyk is a guy who used remote viewing to win money on the stock market. So as you can see there are a lot of people out there using inner guidance for fun and profit !
