James Morcan | 7732 comments Excerpt from Genius Intelligence: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ:


Meditation is proven to be a very effective way to boost mind power. Brain scans on long-term meditators have consistently shown parts of their brains have been activated that haven’t been (activated) in others. And they are more regularly in the relaxing alpha and theta brain waves than non-meditators.

Some successful and famous long-time meditators who use Transcendental Meditation (TM) and other similar meditation techniques include Hugh Jackman, Ellen DeGeneres, Rupert Murdoch, Oprah Winfrey, Katy Perry, Howard Stern, Russell Brand, Jerry Seinfeld, Martin Scorsese and Sir Paul McCartney.

Another famous meditator is American film director and author David Lynch who often mentions the importance of TM in his life when speaking in public. In his 2006 book Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity, Lynch talks about the wells of creativity this form of meditation allowed him to access.

“Meditation is all about the pursuit of nothingness. It's like the ultimate rest. It's better than the best sleep you've ever had. It's a quieting of the mind. It sharpens everything, especially your appreciation of your surroundings. It keeps life fresh.” –Hugh Jackman

Yoga may also hold great potential for intelligence, although there have been limited studies done on this complex subject to date. One body of research was covered in an article by IQ Test Experts headlined Yoga Enhances IQ.

“Clinical tests have shown,” the article begins, “that consistent yoga practice can raise your IQ and increase your memory. Studies have found that yoga, besides improving fitness, health, co-ordination, reaction time and memory, also positively influences IQ.

“The brain functions of attention, cognition, processing of sensory information and visual perception are honed with yogic practices. Yogic practices – like hatha yoga, which is a medley of asanas, pranayama, meditation and Om chanting – increase blood feed to the brain. This helps in soothing the mind and enhances concentration. Memory power is given a boost, while also improving the ability to maintain focus and concentration.”

Yogic techniques for accelerated learning are probably related to other topics on the brain covered elsewhere in this book, including superluminal particles, brainwaves and the activation of dormant brain glands.

Besides meditation, breathing and posture are of course major components of most Yogic systems.
Posture being related to intelligence makes sense. After all, it seems difficult if not impossible to perform complex mental tasks while slouching, and most people automatically and unconsciously sit or stand upright and erect when faced with intellectual challenges. Therefore it makes sense to maintain good posture at all times.

Deep breathing techniques to increase brain activity may also have some scientific validation. After all, the more oxygen you inhale, the more will enter your bloodstream and the more will be delivered to the brain, which requires rich supplies of oxygen to work efficiently.

Yogic breathing techniques, known as Pranayama, increase the supply of oxygen to the brain, which in turn enhances memory and concentration.

“One becomes firmly established in practice only after attending to it for a long time, without interruption and with an attitude of devotion.” –Yoga Sutra I.14

James Morcan | 7732 comments Excerpt from Genius Intelligence: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ:


A renowned genius who has perhaps influenced as many lives as any other creative thinker in the modern era was Apple co-founder Steve Jobs (1955-2011). Although the history of his illustrious career in the tech industry has been well documented in books, movies and untold news articles, few are aware that Jobs was intensely interested in Yoga.

Yoga Journal published an article on September 11, 2013 about the master inventor’s lifelong relationship with the Eastern discipline.

“Steve Jobs will long be remembered as an innovator whose vision changed the way we interact with the world through technology. But what many people don’t know is that Jobs was guided by an intense interest in spirituality and yoga.”

In 1974, shortly after he had dropped out of college, Jobs traveled to India as a backpacker. He stayed on the the subcontinent for seven months and during this period he first discovered and began to practice Yoga. He cited the experiences he had of meeting Yogis at ashrams all over India as being among the most influential of his life.

The 19 year-old returned to the US an altogether different person. Two years later, in 1976, Jobs co-founded Apple (with fellow college dropout Steve Wozniak) after having the revolutionary idea of personal computing for the masses.

Some say that Jobs’ statement “I was worth over $1,000,000 when I was 23, and over $10,000,000 when I was 24, and over $100,000,000 when I was 25, and it wasn't that important because I never did it for the money,” was directly inspired by this passage from the holy Indian scripture Bhagavad Gita: “Relinquishing attachment to the fruits of work, always contented, independent (of material rewards), the wise do not perform any (binding) action even in the midst of activities”.

Whether that’s true or not is open to conjecture, but reportedly, the only book Jobs ever downloaded to his iPad was Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda.

And in a 2013 interview with CNET.com, Marc Benioff, former business associate and close friend of Jobs, said guests at the iPhone/iPad/iPod creator’s memorial service were “each given a copy of the classic book Autobiography of a Yogi as per Jobs’ wishes.”

Benioff added, “He had the incredible realization that his intuition was his greatest gift and he needed to look at the world from the inside out.”

Cosmic Arcata | 44 comments There are A lot of different "practices" out there. A "walking" practice, a "writing" practice, "mindfulness" practice, and "breathing" practice. Do you think that you are talking about all of these collectively or do you prefer some others over others? We are so "busy" why do we want this practice to be a microwave...or streamlined? How come we naturally have so much resistance to this? Why does it feel unintuitive for an important person like Steve Jobs to focus one something that on the outside seems so unproductive? I have the Autobiography of a Yogi, you have inspired me to pull this book out and read it again.

I was inspired that Steve Jobs did something for a seven months that created such a profound influence that it "took". I think what would I do for the next 7 weeks that would create this kind of profound change? I think we think we have to do something huge but maybe it is small repetitive and consistent choices that have a synergistic effect. Maybe this s what Steve learned. Any thoughts on this?

Anything that stimulates the brain glands is the key in my opinion.

The ancient Yogis knew the right postures, chants (aka sound frequencies) and meditations to activate these brain glands.

But for those not open to Eastern disciplines, they can approach brain gland activation via modern technologies such as Transcranial direct current stimulation (TDCS) or Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

As per the ancient scriptures Yoga means stilling of the mind. The Yoga excercise or Asanas that you see generally is just a small part of yoga. The reason why Asanas was done was to ensure that the yogi can strengthen his spine and sit erect without bending his spine for a long time.

A yogi develops the ability to foccus his mind genrally on the form of God. Yoga involves breath control (Pranayama) and meditation.

As ordingary practicioners it will help our mind to be unaffected by the frivolities of this world.

If you want to know more about Yoga you can read 'Yoga Sutra of Patanjali' which is known as the Bible of yoga. Books written by BKS Iyengar can throw light on the Asanaas and the Pranayama part of Yoga.


message 7: by Abigail (new)

Abigail I think that meditating could hurt you when you totally clear your mind. When you do that it could let bad things come in too. But that's my opinion.....


message 8: by Stephen (new)

Stephen Martino | 49 comments Rhonda Byrne of The Secret says that meditating lets your mind be in better touch with the universe. Only then, will the universe's secrets of past, present and future fill your mind. Similarly, The Catholic religion believes that through meditation and prayer God can come into both your mind and your soul. Overall, I believe that meditation is a skill that can enhance a person mentally, physically, and spiritually.

I believe that most meditation teachers encourage a meditator to have a mantra for protection or say a prayer to your idea of God for protection before "emptying" your mind.

It hurts dueing the process of clearing your mind. Most of your fears, beliefs, thoughts will refuse to leave you. It is all about fighting these paradigms and winning to start a new life.

After you clear your mind you need to be sure that you dont let in the negative feelings in. A person who meditate or pray for the ill of somebody else is sure to suffer.


message 11: by Laureen (new)

Laureen (laureenandersonswfcomau) | 478 comments Mathews, I don't believe anybody practicing meditation would have harm to others in their mind. Meditation is a discipline which is practiced for the purpose of developing a better and more compassionate understanding of humanity. Stilling of the mind is the aim which neither promotes good or bad thoughts I.e. no thoughts, but will over time advance our innate wisdom. It is closer to being in a class of Religion aiming for spiritual development but without the dogma.

Laureen..there are lot of examples in the Indian "Puranas" where people used it to acquire strenght to destroy others. Again the point I am making is that we should strive to fill ourselves with love and remove hatred which can ultimately destroy . May be that is the reason why Christ said "there is only one commandment and that is to love others".

Lisa Norris | 485 comments I was thinking about checking out Hatha yoga...anyone have experience with it? It's quite ironic, I've tried yoga in the past, but finding the patience to meditate is very difficult. I do think that it would have great benefits for a person's emotional health, but that's just what I think. I need to actually do yoga to know for sure...this is one of my goals...to do yoga. Abigail mentioned something about letting bad things in...if there are bad things inside your head, then it's probably good to bring them to the surface and deal with them once and for all.


message 14: by Laureen (new)

Laureen (laureenandersonswfcomau) | 478 comments Yoga is fabulous! I want to get back to doing It after many years away from it. However, I can't find an authentic Yoga School that fits in with my very committed work/family lifestyle. Just make sure you find a Yoga stream that is authentic in its teachings and not some modern version. One new stream is "hot yoga" which my daughter does. However, I can't relate to that at all. It is like doing a Gym workout,

Authentic yoga teachers will teach you grace and calm as well as give you direction on how to still the mind. You can do it at any age. You don't have to wrap your ankles around your neck or stand on your hands backwards.

I did the P90X yoga at home for awhile...it was tough in the beginning, but it's amazing how quickly the body loosens up. But then I stopped and when I tried doing it again it was like day 1 all over again. Although I enjoyed it, I'd like something that focuses on the mind as well. It's hard to block out all thoughts when you are focusing on the pose.

K.P. Merriweather (KP_Merriweather) | 43 comments ive done the yoga bits with yourself fitness (p90x was torturous to my bad knees and back). i also meditate too when i can. basically find a system that *works for you* and roll with it. if you worry about authenticity and the real deal you'll never find peace in yourself which is kinda the point.
i've combined a lot of things here and there from my travels (this yoga practice that martial art this kind of Buddhism that kind of diet) and its become my own system that works for me. im not claiming im uber enlightened but it keeps my head on to deal with the haterade rollercoaster machine called life.


message 17: by Laureen (new)

Laureen (laureenandersonswfcomau) | 478 comments Thank you for your input K.P. I understand your point of view. I have only recently become aware of authentic yoga. I know that there a changing beliefs about how we should eat, exercise, sleep and live but that is what I don't like also. I think that because some ancient ways of being in touch with our spiritual nature work shouldn't be a reason for overlooking them and adapting new ways that don't correspond in any way to the tried and true methods of the past.

To my mind, it doesn't matter which form of yoga you adopt so long as it is taught by a traditionalist for the ultimate benefit.

Merriweather (KP_Merriweather) | 43 comments got a point there laureen. learn it the right way so you wont hurt yourself (or accidentally build up sha if youre trying for ki, right?) i had the same authenticity issues when i wanted to learn reiki. almost erbody and their cousin had a variant. took me bumping into an oomoto practioner who steered me in the right direction (the actual usui one). lolz

message 23: by Tony (new)

Tony (paigetheoracle) Meditation slows you down so you can see the world as it is. Panic gets you running away, so your perception is a blur: In the words of a New Age book of a few years ago "Don't just do something, sit there!"


message 24: by Lisa (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lisa Norris | 485 comments interesting, Tony and I understand your point, but I'm not quite sure I agree completely. ..whenever I'm in panic type situations, I automatically calm down and seem to handle everything much better (probably why I always turned my school papers in right on the deadline )...I've never done yoga, but I want to. It seems to me, though that the way we deal with fight or flight varies from person to person. Yoga, on the other hand, as I understand it, is to find balance within yourself and learn to understand your part in the universe.


message 25: by Tony (new)

Tony (paigetheoracle) Calming down is meditation. Fighting isn't fighting anything else but your own impulse to run away as flight is going with that urge (a decision to do or not do something in other words)

message 27: by Laureen (new)

Laureen (laureenandersonswfcomau) | 478 comments Lisa, I know what you say about automatically calming down in a crisis. I used to do the same. When we are young, our auto nervous system works as it should. Adreneline kicks in and allows us to cope with adverse situations calmly. Adrenaline is not just for giving us extra energy, it is a natural chemical that allows our body and emotions to level out to the circumstances that are presented to us.

As we age, most of us loose that calming down effect. I think it must have to do with over stressing the body and the mind. Our glands do not process information as they should. That is where meditation and Yoga can help both the mind and body.

Peter | 8 comments My wife and I have had a private Yoga trainer come to our house every Tuesday morning for the past 15 years. She does an hour of Yoga with my wife and then an hour with me. At the end of the hour I am totally spent and soak for a long time in the shower.

Every morning without fail, both of us do about 20 minutes of Yoga by ourselves. This routine has kept me healthy and sane, even though I have now reached the venerable ago of 86.

message 34: by Roshan (new)

Roshan Sharma Intelligence is all about spontaneity. Meditation is a wonderful tool to allow yourself to stay still in you. When you learn to stay still, your mind remains in the present moment. You don't think, but you observe, and when you observe, all the life's intelligence is revealed to you.

Lance Morcan | 1985 comments Author Asli Theobald posted this in another thread which I'm also including here:

Transcendental meditation does seem to increase IQ scores. This website lists the science-based evidence backing this up with 14 peer-reviewed studies under the subtitle "Improved Intelligence, Creativity and Learning Ability": https://www.tm.org/popups-responsive/... For me, this technique completely reversed the damage caused by an asthma inhaler to which I had a horrible allergic(?) reaction. I had became unable to concentrate, I could not remember my past. I could not sit still and work so I quit my job before they fired me, I moved in with my mother. The stupid crazy doctors gave me stimulants which made me faint with heart palpitations. In only two months transcendental meditation reversed all of that damage (this just happens to be true, I don't teach or sell transcendental meditation). My concentration does feel clearer than ever now, I was fascinated when I found out that this technique has done the same for countless children in many schools around the world. All of this is not hearsay and has been documented in detail by clinicians. A 2015 report on the website of the Center for Wellness and Achievement in Education (CWAE) gives a thorough account of the academic and behavioral advancements seen in the 4 schools in the San Francisco Unified School District which implemented the 'Quiet Time' Transcendental Meditation Program: hhttps://docs.google.com/viewerng/view... Graduation rates have improved, GPA scores have gone up. Pls. see at the graphs here and let me know what you think. Directors of many other schools report similar experiences which I compiled in my book, for example, see this video here about a school in Israel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_co... Do you know anyone else who has had similar experiences, I'd like to interview them. I'm just SO impressed by what it has done for me including curing my asthma (the breath slows down and sometimes stops during this meditation). It did not fix my allergies completely but I have never had to use an inhaler again (I would't even if I'd have asthma) and my ability to focus is better than ever. I am so angry techniques like these are not being promoted effectively to cure problems including ADHD and improve people's productivity while the drug manufacturers have fraudulently promoted the use of addictive stimulants which seem to "help" initially but drain people completely over time, destroying millions of lives each year. These drugs are not "smart drugs," they are not for anyone with half a brain. For the convincing proof, see by Dr. Fred Baughman: The ADHD Fraud: How Psychiatry Makes Patients of Normal Children

Zy Marquiez (ZyPhReX) | 2 comments Very interesting thread. It's great reading through the comments and seeing the information. Still need to further digest some of the info and perhaps even get some books, although I've already found yoga and meditation both to be quite great when individuals learn and apply it. It's been amazing for my health and I can't recommend it highly enough.

It's great to see a thread about it here. I don't usually take part in groups since I'm newer (to the groups) on GoodReads, but this is one of those topics that can serve to help everyone and should be pondered at length. Awesome to see all this work and inquiry collated on here. Look forward to reading/learning more.

Asli Theobald | 21 comments I have been greatly helped by ayurvedic herbal formulas as well as Transendental meditation. Here is a good way to get ayurvedic formulas heavy metal free (most formulas have heavy metals in them from India): https://www.banyanbotanicals.com/info...
