Superbrain Yoga: An Exercise That Makes You Smarter

Did you know there is a yoga move that you can do each day to make you smarter?

That's right. It's called thoppukaranam, or "Superbrain Yoga," and has become quite the trend among doctors, teachers, and parents. Less than five minutes a day devoted to this exercise can significantly benefit you, because it maximizes the body's use of energy.


Here's how to do it:

Step 1: Remove all jewelry. Preferably face East.

Step 2: Press your tongue against the roof of your mouth and keep it there for the whole exercise.

Step 3: Raise your left arm and cross it over your body. Bend your elbow and hold your right earlobe. Make sure the thumb is on the front of the ear and the two fingers on the back.

Step 4: Do the same with your right arm and your left earlobe. Your right arm will cross over the left. *It is important to do the left arm first.

Step 5: Inhale deeply through your nose and simultaneously squat down to a sitting position. Try to go down to floor level if you can. Hold the squatting position for three seconds.

Step 6: Exhale slowly as you rise to a standing position.

Step 7: Repeat this cycle 14 times. Inhale as you go down and exhale as you go up.

You may be thinking: How does this work? Based on the research of neurologist Dr. Paul Nogier MD, Superbrain Yoga uses acupuncture points to connect the left and right hemispheres of the brain.

The right earlobe corresponds to the left brain hemisphere. The left earlobe corresponds to the right brain hemisphere. By stimulating the two, a connection forms and activates brain cells.

According to the book "Superbrain Yoga ®" by Master Choa Kok Sui,
"when energies from the basic energy center and sex energy center move up to the heart energy center, they are transformed into inner peace. When the energies go up to the throat energy center and the ajna energy center, they are transformed into greater intelligence and creativity. When they go up to the forehead energy center and crown energy center, they are transformed into a higher degree of spirituality. The lower energies are transformed into subtle energy, which is utilized by the brain to enhance its proper functioning."

Start by doing it each morning and soon Superbrain Yoga will become a daily habit. A habit that improves mental capability, improves the functioning of your physical body and its organs, and improves total energy levels. It has been proven to help especially with children with ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, and other disorders by increasing academic and behavioral performance. Some people also experience reduced levels of stress and better regulation of sex drive.

The results have been empirically proven by professionals. Superbrain Yoga balances emotions, enhances focus, and improves memory and intelligence. So after prolonged practice, the practitioner comes out smarter and more physically and psychologically healthy.

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
