If there is one overriding concern for most parents all over the world, it has to be the academic success of their children. For, success in academics is the first stepping stone to a life of accomplishment in adulthood. It is the bedrock upon which the edifice of a glittering career is built. But more than anything else, doing well in school or college depends on how well the brain functions. There is also what is called “natural intelligence.” This explains how people with a rudimentary education become high achievers and establish mighty business empires.
The human brain has multiple intelligences, declared Howard Gardner in 1983. But conventional academics focuses mostly on verbal-linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligences, neglecting aspects like bodily-kinesthetic, visual-spatial, interpersonal intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence, etc. This means the brain’s actual potential is not fully tapped. When the intelligence located in various parts of the brain is utilized fully, it produces a rounded personality who has ability, empathy, and social skills.
Phonemic Intelligence, says Dr. Baskaran Pillai, can be the game changer as it helps to improve the brain’s function in all areas, thereby enhancing the student’s intelligence. This is done by activating the brain using phonemes or soundwaves. He calls it a unique science for two reasons—it triggers natural intelligence, and it also improves the intelligence acquired by academic training. According to him, it is the only practical discipline that is capable of increasing the intelligence associated with various parts of the brain. When one’s brain is functioning well, it enhances both natural intelligence and the academic training received by the student. Phonemic intelligence is the sole brain-based intelligence program that is currently available, says Dr.Pillai.
PI is very easy to practice—all it takes is 7 minutes a day. And within two weeks, the results are said to manifest in the form of an improvement in academic and professional performance. Students who practiced it scored better in tests and were able to set and achieve goals. People of all ages can practice PI. What is more, it also has an impact on social and behavioral aspects leading to more harmonious behavior by triggering feelings of love, compassion, and empathy.
Dr. Pillai is a scholar, philanthropist, and global educator, whose aim is to help people realize their highest potential. He did his PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Pittsburgh and was a teaching fellow in the Department of Religious Studies as well as the Coordinator of the Indian Studies Program for the Department of International Studies.
Dr. Pillai is conducting a Free and Exclusive Brain Enhancement Training camp for students aged 10-18 years and their parents. Those interested can contact:
