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.

Poetry On Odyssey: Some Days

A poem that reminds you that you're not alone.

Some days,

You dread the sound of your alarm. You snooze and snooze and snooze and snooze.

When you finally pull yourself out of bed, pressed time forces you to throw on stained sweats

you find yourself chugging a cup of coffee.

You sit on the couch and contemplate calling out of work

You caught the stomach bug,

Or perhaps the flu,

Maybe you broke your collar bone

Or need a new phone

The endless list of excuses repeats through your head as you sit on the couch, wishing you were still in bed.

It takes every ounce

Every breath

Every fiber of your being to pull yourself off the couch

And into the car

And into the building where you work

Some days,

This is just how it goes

You are not alone.


Some days,

You awake to the beautiful sound of birds

Chirping outside your window

The sun sneaks its way into your room

A smile creeps across your face as you realize you are awake to see a new day

You make a good breakfast

You read a few pages of your favorite book

You get your mind ready for the things it will accomplish today

Before you know it you've worked an entire day

Your job is done

As you pull into your driveway,

you take a few breaths

Feeling grateful for another meaningful day.

Some days,

This is how it goes

You are not alone.


Every day is a gamble,

Every day is a gift

The key to getting more good days

Is believing that everyday is one.

You are not alone, this is just how it goes.
