MidBrain (Interbrain) has to be awakened by stimulating a hormonal discharge. In the human body, it is the pituitary gland that regulates the hormone secretions and this function has to be awakened. For this, it is necessary to activate the neighboring Pineal Gland. The pineal body secretes two hormones: Melatonin and Serotonin. The secretion of Melatonin increases in the dark and decreases when it is bright. Serotonin is said to be very closely related to the evolution of species and has the capacity to increase the intelligence of the right brain. Since the MidBrain is responsible for communication with the left and right hemispheres of the brain, the process of Activating the MidBrain will result in better communication with the left and right hemispheres. As individuals grow older, the brain has the tendency to automatically assign one hemisphere of the brain to become more dominant in performing a certain task (a process known as Lateralization). This means we end up using much less of our brain that we actually could! The process of activating the MidBrain reverses this trend and allows us to use our brain more efficiently, hence the improvement in cognitive abilities. Another interesting effect of MidBrain activation that it allows children to sense the visual properties of objects without actually seeing them with their eyes (blindfolded).
During the MidBrain Activation child learns how to enter the condition of meditative genuineness in order to be able to SEE with eyes closed. The term “genius” here doesn’t mean someone with IQ above 130, rather, it’s the condition that if we are able to decrease the brain wave down to alpha-theta, our brain will function optimally. When the brain functions optimally, all human senses will be in their top performances including the capability of intuition, so that a child is able to do activities with his/her eyes closed. We should know that, if your brain is able to be trained to enter this condition, you will even be able to do speed reading (reading a book, 1 page in 1 second), even more: with the book positioned upside down! So, the capability of the blindfold, speed reading, faster memorization, and better concentration can be achieved if our brain successfully enters the genius condition (alpha-theta waves). What makes a child have MidBrain Activation ability is the active intuition. What is intuition? Intuition is the man’s capability to obtain perception regarding all matters instantly/real timely or “the capability to think without thinking”. Another definition for intuition provided in Wikipedia.org site is: Intuition is a combination of historical (empirical) data, deep and heightened observation and an ability to cut through the thickness of surface reality. Intuition is like a slow motion machine that captures data instantaneously and hits you like a ton of bricks. Intuition is knowing, sensing that is beyond the conscious understanding – a gut feeling. Intuition is not pseudo-science. – Abella Arthur
MBA is a technique that is used to activate the MidBrain. The purpose MBA is to unleash the child potential through the activation of MidBrain. MidBrain is the bridge for linking up and balancing the functions of the left and right brain. Activating it would allow both left and right brain to be used simultaneously. You may wish to call it as “Blind Fold Reading”, or “Blind Fold Study”, or “Blind Fold Viewing” etc. because the participants are blindfolded during the training. Neurons’s MidBrain Activation workshop is fun and upon the completion of a 2-day workshop, students will acquire this phenomenal ability where they can ‘read’ or ‘see’ with their eyes shut or blindfolded. Students will be blindfolded (usually with a piece of cloth tied around their head covering both their eyes) in order to reduce distraction. The image appeared in their mind (not their eyes as they are blindfolded) is exactly the same as the object they are holding or around them. The ability to read blindfolded is a sign of their mid-brain being activated. Children are taught how to garner their concentration power during the workshop as this is a vital exercise to strengthen their mental power. This skill may sound supernatural (to read with their mind, not eyes!), but it is merely a form of brain ability that we possess. Workshop stimulates and motivates children’s mind to achieve:
Once the ‘MidBrain’ is activated, children will have easy access to both the left and right brain. They will be able to Learn, Read and memorize things in a much faster speed and thus boosting their confidence, interest and concentration in learning. MidBrain Activation helps in:
