The point of The Ziva Technique is not to relax or feel calm during each session.
It’s to actually remove stress from your brain and body at the cellular level.
With less stress weighing you down, you’ll be amazed how much more energy you have, how much sharper your brain becomes and how much more easily you can handle the demands of your daily life.
Let’s Face It:
Stress Makes You Stupid, Sad and Sick
Doctors are calling stress the Black Plague of our century —
and we don’t think that’s hyperbole.
Harvard researchers estimate that 80% of doctor’s visits are related to stress. Getting stressed is not bad for you, but staying stressed is toxic.
Meditation — especially within the trifecta of The Ziva Technique — is the single most powerful stress relieving tool available.
By reducing the stress in your body at the cellular level,
The Ziva Technique will give you
Sound too good to be true?
Instead of asking “How can The Ziva Technique do ALL these things?” let’s ask, “How does stress mess so many things up?”
45% of women in the US take anti-anxiety or anti-depressants. JAMA Internal Medicine found that meditation helps heal depression and anxiety about as effectively as antidepressants. It floods the brain with dopamine & serotonin.
Meditation is proven to actually reverse your body age (how old the body acts and feels). Meditation reduces blood pressure, has been known to improve eyesight, stop and reverse graying hair AND counteract the effects of stress on skin appearance and elasticity.
Too much cortisol prevents female orgasm. Too much adrenaline prevents male erection. Plus, what woman has ever said, “I had the hottest sex last night with this guy who looked WAY older than his age and was totally distracted the whole time”?
When the body is in “fight or flight” mode, mental capacity decreases. Meditation reduces stress and allows you to perform at the top of your game. Plus, Aetna’s CEO told The New York Times that employees who meditated gained over an hour of productivity each week
Meditation can help relieve the intensity, frequency and duration of migraines. Migraines tend to be 3 hrs shorter for meditators and happen 1.4 times less frequently.
In a recent study of meditation for people with ADHD, 78% of participants reported a reduction in total ADHD symptoms, with 30% reporting at least a 30% symptom reduction. For adults, significant reductions in depressive and anxiety symptoms were reported.
50% of adults suffer from insomnia a few nights a week. Meditation gives you a custom designed time to get rid of stress in the body, so you can use your sleep as a time for sleep. We have a 90% success rate with insomnia at Ziva.
Meditation makes the body less acidic, which can increase your fertility. If you are not looking to get pregnant, then please take care. We are having zivaBABIES popping up all over the place.
Not to Mention…
The Ziva Technique Actually Changes Your Brain
In zivaONLINE, you’ll learn 3 tools to increase your neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to change itself) and improve neurogenesis (the brain’s ability to generate new cells).
Mindfulness helps deal with stress in the present moment. During mindfulness exercises, you’re directing your focus, which, on a brain scan, lights up a small part of the brain (the Prefrontal cortex). Over time this improves your clarity and focus.
Meditation gives the body deep, healing rest to get rid of stress from the past. The technique you’ll learn in zivaONLINE is nearly effortless, and on a brain scan lights up the whole brain, but not as brightly as mindfulness. Over time, meditation strengthens the corpus callosum, which improves how the two hemispheres of the brain communicate and increases creativity.
The manifesting tools you’ll learn in zivaONLINE helps you clarify, create and achieve your goals for the future. During manifesting, you’ll activate the creative center of the brain, also known as the right brain. It’s why Olympic athletes are known to use manifesting tools to visualize their goals before a race or game.
Why You’re Not Already Meditating
Allow Us to Bust These Common Meditation Myths…
You can’t clear your mind
Surprise! YOU DON’T HAVE TO. In fact you’ll find it’s quite the opposite. Thoughts can be an important and enjoyable part of the zivaONLINE experience.
You don’t want to sit in lotus position
Again — you don’t have to. Nor do you have to use “fancy fingers.” You’ll simply find a comfy spot on the couch, a park bench, anywhere you can think a thought is a good place to practice.
You don’t want to have to do it for an hour at a time
Nope, zivaONLINE teaches 15-minutes twice a day.
You don’t want to chant in a strange language
Uh, no. No chanting in any language at Ziva.
You think meditation is Buddhist, Hindu or religious
Wrong. We’ve had rabbis and priests take zivaONLINE — and love it. Think of The Ziva Technique as a hardware upgrade for your brain and body — something that makes everything run more smoothly and efficiently. From there, you can run any software (diet, religion, philosophy) you want.
You’re worried it’s “weird”
What’s so weird about sitting and thinking? Besides, US congressmen, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, NFL teams, Olympic athletes and the US Marine Corps are doing it…how weird can it be?
You can’t sit still
Again, not a requirement of The Ziva Technique. All you need to do is sit comfortably, and fidget if you need to.
You get “too anxious” to meditate
That’s also normal. zivaONLINE will give you mindfulness techniques to calm you down before meditating.
You tried before and hated it
There are many types of meditation out there — and The Ziva Technique is unique. The apps, downloads and drop-in studios you may have come in contact with are all typically types of mindfulness. In zivaONLINE, you’ll learn a powerful trifecta of mental techniques, and meditation is one. Our mission at Ziva is to make meditation attractive, accessible and easy to adopt. Give it a try and see what you think (we have a 30-day money back guarantee).
It’s too hard to commit to a daily practice
No, what’s hard is going through life knowing you’re capable of more, but not being able to access your full potential. What’s hard is constantly being stressed, getting sick, feeling overwhelmed and unhappy. Ask yourself, is learning and adopting this new skill harder than going through life as stressed/angry/sad/frustrated as you do now?
You just don’t have the time
This is our favorite meditation myth to bust. Think of all those minutes you waste every day on Instagram or watching Netflix… If you want to spend the time with The Ziva Technique, you will find the time. Plus, more importantly, The Ziva Technique saves you time by making you more productive. Gandhi is quoted as saying “I have so much to accomplish today that I must meditate for two hours instead of one.”
