Pranic Healing for Becoming Smarter
One of the hallmarks of spiritual practice is that it makes you more intelligent. To put this into perspective, have you ever heard of the story of a Spiritual Teacher or Saint who lacked a sharp mind? When you read stories in antiquity about great spiritual teachers across traditions, you would observe that almost off of them were extraordinary from the standpoint of possessing a sharp mind. According to Master Choa Kok Sui, the key purpose of Arhatic Yoga is “to produce intelligent, compassionate, good hearted, powerful disciples who will become great divine servants.” Within the MCKS Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga system lie several techniques to enable students sharpen their minds.
Sharpen Your Mind
MCKS Superbrain Yoga was developed to be a simple and effective technique to energize and recharge the brain. It is based on the principles of subtle energy and ear acupuncture. This powerful technique is explained in Master Choa Kok Sui’s book Superbrain Yoga. This exercise takes less than 60 seconds a day to perform. This exercise offers benefits not just for young students, but also adults seeking brain wellness into their senior years and patients with development challenges and cognitive delays seeking normalcy and cures. Children studied showed a significant increase in academic and behavioural performance, greater class participation and improved social skills. In one study, the result of an electroencephalograph showed increased amplitude in the parietooccipital region of the brain following the Superbrain Yoga. This indicates increased brain electrical activity following the exercise. Superbrain Yoga can additionally help keep our brain fit and functional, and how these can help counter the common mental effects of aging, memory loss, as well as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
In the USA pilots have been conducted using Superbrain Yoga. A pilot study of two classes tottaling thirty-six students served as the experimental group while sixteen served as the control group. These students performed the exercise regularly. In that year, 83% of the students in the experimental group improved their standardized tests scores using the GatesMacGinitie Reading Inventory as a measurement tool. The average percentage point change in scores was 24 points for the experimental group. For example, students once scoring 64% on tests were now scoring 88%. In the control group, only 50% of the students improved their test scores with an average percentage change of 14 points. In another pilot 36 students performing Master Choa Kok Sui’s Superbrain Yoga were compared to a control group of 36 students. Once again, the data reflects that students performing Master Choa Kok Sui’s Superbrain Yoga perform better academically and behaviourally. In this year the experimental group increased test scores by 25% while the experimental group only increased by 15%. t was also determined through the scientific evaluation of Dr. Eugenius Ang, Jr. (Ph. D Post-doctoral fellow in the department of Neurobiology at Yale University School of Medicine) and Dr. Glenn Joseph Mendoza, (M.D., M.P.H. Practicing Physician and Director of the Neonatology and Neurodevelopment program in Upper State New York and Associate Professor, Clinical Paediatrics at the New York Medical College), that the quality of the experiment has a p value of .0001 which supports that the data collected is statistically and scientifically strong thereby proving the Superbrain Yoga is capable of improving intelligence levels.
In addition to Superbrain Yoga, Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga together introduce several meditation techniques. Meditation as a tool helps optimize mental functioning. According to research, people who meditate even in small doses can remodel the electrical patterns of the brain that can help optimize mental functioning. Jeff Tarrant, Ph.D. and Neus Raines, Ph.D., found that the experienced meditators had significantly more gamma brain waves (30-90 Hz) and a Harvard study used MRI scans to document how Meditation rebuilds the brain’s grey matter in 8 weeks. Specifically the Meditation on Twin Hearts is one which is known to activate the brain. Research and Scientific studies have been completed on the neurophysiological, psychological, sociological and psychospiritual effects of the Meditation on Twin Hearts. These studies have been conducted mostly in New York City, New York and in Bangalore, India. In conjunction with Pranic Healing, Meditation on Twin Hearts has also shown increased academic performance, behavioural functioning, improved memory and overall school and job performance.
In addition to the Meditation on Twin Hearts there are other advanced techniques taught in Arhatic Yoga that are focused towards the development of mental clarity and thinking. These include the practice of the Understanding Meditation which is introduced in Arhatic Yoga Level 1.
