My good friend Dr. Subassh sent me this article written by Paul Fassa in the ‘Mind Power News’ website. He wrote, “Very simple exercise—–usually used to punish children so they will have better brains! Actually we did not realise in our younger days that this harsh punishment was for our good. Yes,the ear alone can be used in acupuncture for a variety of illness”. He should know as he is a specialist in acupuncture treatments.

Later, I was pleased to find out from another friend, Kesh, that this is actually a spiritual practice. She commented, “The 3-minute exercise is called “Thoppukarnam” in Tamil and Sanskrit. It is done by everybody in the Hindu Temples in front of the Lord Ganesha (Elephant God as He is called in English). It’s like asking the Lord to pardon us for our mistakes and ask HIM to give us intelligence not to repeat the same. A quick washing away of bad karma is also the benefit of this ‘Thoppukarnam’. This exercise was known to have been given by Lord Shiva. It is one of the oldest Kriyas known to Gods and men alike….”.

Below is the full article.

An unusual exercise to improve mental health and acuity has been going viral on the internet lately. It was featured in a Los Angeles CBS News report that has an MD, a Yale neurobiologist, an occupational therapist, educators, and parents endorsing it.

It is a simple routine, and it has created positive results for learning disabled and autistic children as well as older Alzheimer’s victims.

And it’s useful for any kind of brain fog or dullness, even emotional instability. It can improve memory and focus, and it’s even made some a little smarter. It seems to work for everyone regardless of mental condition.

With your feet pointing straight ahead, spread them apart about shoulder width. Grab your right earlobe with the thumb and finger of your left hand. Cross over your left arm and do the same using your right hand on the left earlobe. Then squat as fully as you can, breathing in. That’s a little counter intuitive, but that’s what you do. Breathe in as you squat.

Then breathe out as you stand. So the breathing needs to be synchronized with the squats. Continue this motion repetitively while holding both earlobes for three minutes. That may be too much at first, so start with one minute. One can go up to five minutes, but three is good enough. This can be done by anyone at any age and should be done on a daily basis until the fog lifts!

Los Angeles physician Dr. Eric Robins says that the brain cells and neurons are energized with this simple exercise. He prescribes it to his patients and has had excellent results. One example of his is a youngster doing poorly in school. After being introduced to the exercise, that child went on to become an A student.

According to Yale neurobiologist Dr. Eugenius Ang, the earlobes grabbed are acupuncture points that stimulate neural pathways in the brain. The brain’s hemispheres are in opposite sides of the earlobes. Using opposite hands for pinching the earlobes may have something to do with the way our subtle energies are arranged.

Ang showed that the results from EEG (electroencephalography) readings after doing this exercise indicate the right and left hemispheres of the brain had become synchronized. EEG readings measure the neuron firings in the brain via electrodes on the scalp, and are used to determine brain wave normalcies and abnormalities.

As Dr. Ang states, “… in modern terms, the brain is actually lateralized. This is an ideal hemispheric arrangement, which is unusual these days. It is something that pricey brain technology CDs attempt to do by producing subliminal sounds to the brain attached to audible sounds through a headset. Dr. Ang also does this exercise daily.

The exercise was introduced by pranic healing Master Koa Chok Sui’s book SuperBrain Yoga and taught by him personally on lecture tours. Of course, there are many other aspects of pranic healing that Master Sui taught.

Prana is another word for Chi, the subtle life force energy that surrounds and permeates the body. It is the stuff of acupuncture and Qi (Chi) Gong. In addition to the subtle energy aspects of prana or Chi, it seems that combining a mildly aerobic exercise also helps flood the brain cells with oxygen.

At any rate, it’s an easy and inexpensive way to improve memory, mental clarity and focus, as well as assist those with debilitating mental disorders. There are those who call it quackery. But you’d be smart to do it daily!

    I wish to express my appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this crisis. Right after scouting through the internet and obtaining strategies which are not productive, I was thinking my entire life was well over. Living minus the strategies to the problems you’ve resolved by way of your good post is a serious case, as well as the kind which might have negatively damaged my entire career if I hadn’t come across the blog. Your actual training and kindness in dealing with all things was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a thing like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for your professional and sensible guide. I won’t think twice to endorse your site to any individual who needs to have recommendations about this subject.
