A study carried out by the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in 2007 has provided good evidence that just 12 minutes of meditation a day can improve cognitive abilities.
This heartening study was conducted amongst the 52 – 70 age group who already had some form of mental decline and after just eight weeks of daily meditation their memories showed startling improvements.
Andrew Newberg, M.D., the study’s principal investigator, said, “For the first time, we are seeing scientific evidence that meditation enables the brain to actually strengthen itself, and battle the processes working to weaken it.”
Other studies at Massachusetts General Hospital show that regular meditation thickens the cerebral cortex in the brain by increasing the blood flow to that region and some researchers believe this can enhance attention span, focus, and memory.
There are many, many good reasons to add a regular meditation practice to your life and a sharp clear mind is just one of them.
As you might know, Kuji Kiri Meditation is my favorite meditation because it ties in chi kung breathing exercises with psychic keys that call upon powers of higher consciousness. You can get your own copy of Secrets of the Ninja which contains Kuji Kiri methodology from Ashida Kim. The link is located at Way of the MindGate Newsletter intro page.
Of course, if you subscribe to the newsletter, you get access to all kinds of “how to” manuals on NLP, hypnosis, and mind control. In fact, there’s one manual hiding at this blog, HealingMindN Meditation Guide, written especially for people who want to take the benefits of meditation with them to any situation to maintain calm, focused self control.
One more thing you should know: I had to do plenty of cross referencing with more academic manuals with diagrams on chi kung, chi flow, and how to use it to completely understand and appreciate the Kuji Kiri. I share this information with the subscribers of Way of the MindGate Newsletter.
Thank you for your time.
