The Problem: We are seeing children/adults digress with gulf-sized disconnect and low self-esteem. Each child/adult is multidimensional and ALL our systems and senses need to function equalized, activated, and balanced for learning to take place. The triune brain which is the neomammalian complex (RAS- aka neocortex), midbrain (pons- aka limbic system), and forebrain (thymus aka reptilian) is working on a downward function, which makes learning and thinking chaotic in the mind. People are using their mental and emotional bodies to learn, not their etherical body (etheric).

The Solution: When using the etherical body, ALL our faculties, systems, and senses will function equalized, activated, and balanced. The triune brain needs to be working in an upward function (no longer perform in a protective function). With a functional upward system, the child [or adult] can trust themselves and their gifts and learning uniquenesses through spiritual mindset with self-directed neuroplasticity through ABC’s and atonement meaning God awareness (eventually unity) through PYAM Daily. They’re offered the freedom arising from conditions within the brain, senses, or sense organs and not directly caused not by external stimuli but the knowing with-in themselves which is patience for understanding and trusting in their subjective, divergent mind.

The Reticular Activating System (RAS)- Ras/ HPA & ACC/Gut – to know, perceive, recognize, have, aware, cognizant, do laugh, reverence, ask, repent, reconciliation which is a network of neurons (hyper-, hypo-, or, varied) located in the brain stem that project anteriorly to the hypothalmus to mediate behavior such as sleep, memory, and learning; as well as, both posteriorly to the and directly to the cortex for activation of awake, desynchronized cortical EEG patterns. The reticular formation (part of pons-see below) is a set of interconnected nuclei that are  located throughout the brain stem. It is not anatomically well-defined,  because it includes neurons located in different parts of the brain. The  neurons of the reticular formation make up a complex set of networks in  the core of the brain stem that extend from the upper part of the  midbrain to the lower part of the medulla oblongata. The reticular  formation includes ascending pathways to the cortex in the ascending  reticular activating system and descending pathways to the spinal cord  via the reticulospinal tracts. [2]  It is holistically and spiritually known from being a center “where we can create our own reality” whether positive, negative, or neutral. Knowing: What we focus on in our mind (thymus), pons (dream center) then comes to fruition here in our RAS. The reticular activating system’s fundamental role is regulating arousal and sleep−wake transitions. The ascending projections of the reticular activating system  enhance the attentive state of the cortex and facilitate conscious  perception of sensory stimuli. Retrieved from;;].

Targeting these cells, as reported in the journal #Nature Neuroscience,  modulated memory retrieval and altered anxiety-like behaviors in mice.  Essentially, the #UNC scientists boosted the electrical activity between  cells in the hypothalamus and the hippocampus to create new neurons – an  important process called neurogenesis “Targeting  the hypothalamic neurons to enhance adult hippocampal  neurogenesis will not only benefit brain functions,” said senior author @Juan Song, PhD, associate professor of pharmacology, “but also holds the  potential to treat cognitive and affective deficits associated with  various brain disorders.”  [Retrieved from].

Note: the thalamus has been found to be less passive in cognitive functions may indeed be supported by a more general role in  shaping mental representations. Several features of thalamocortical  circuits are consistent with this suggested role, and we highlight how  divergent and convergent thalamocortical and corticothalamic pathways  may complement each other to support these functions. Furthermore, the  role of the thalamus for subcortical integration is highlighted as a key  mechanism for maintaining and updating representations. [Retrieved from].

The ACC (see top)- is part of RAS (Pineal Gland, Pituitary Gland) associated with the alta major chakra and shame.

HPA (see top)-(Hypothalamic–Pituitary–Adrenal Axis) associated with the soma chakra and anger.

Both are associated with the thymus chakra aka vagus nerve chakra.

The GUT- The SECOND Brain & Solar Plexus

The gut consist of 75% of our immune system, and the microbiome refers to the collective  genomes of the micro-organisms in a particular environment, and  microbiota is the community of micro-organisms themselves (box 1).  Approximately 100 trillion micro-organisms (most of them bacteria, but  also viruses, fungi, and protozoa) exist in the human gastrointestinal  tract12—the  microbiome is now best thought of as a virtual organ of the body. The  human genome consists of about 23 000 genes, whereas the microbiome  encodes over three million genes producing thousands of metabolites,  which replace many of the functions of the host,13 consequently influencing the host’s fitness, phenotype, and health.2

The human body is composed of a complex biological system; with over 90% of microbiota cells and 10 million microbiota genes (1),   it possesses over 100 trillion bacteria, 10 times the number of human   body cells, 150 times the number of human genes, 1,000 species and over   7,000 strains (2).  [Retrieved from].

  • Microbiome—the collective genomes of the microorganisms in a particular environment
  • Microbiota—the community of microorganisms themselves
  • Microbiota diversity—a  measure of how many species and, dependent on the diverse indices, how evenly distributed they are in the community. Lower  diversity is considered a marker of dysbiosis (microbial imbalance) in  the gut and has been found in autoimmune diseases and obesity and  cardio metabolic conditions, as well a in elderly people.
  • Colonocytes—epithelial cells of the colon

According to several studies, there is considerable evidence showing that the gut microbiome not only  affects the digestive, metabolic, and immune functions of the host but  also regulates host sleep and mental states through the  microbiome-gut-brain axis. Preliminary evidence indicates that  microorganisms and circadian genes can interact with each other. The  characteristics of the gastrointestinal microbiome and metabolism are  related to the host’s sleep and circadian rhythm. Moreover, emotion and  physiological stress can also affect the composition of the gut  microorganisms. The gut microbiome and inflammation may be linked to  sleep loss, circadian misalignment, affective disorders, and metabolic  disease. [Retrieved from].

Stress also exerts a great influence on the functions of our immune  system: if the immune system is somehow compromised and cannot properly  cope with physicochemical stresses [such as  food/nutrition, noise, pollution, metabolic disorder, infection, and inflammation], or if the stress exceeds the regular  adaptability of the immune system, this leads to diseased states that  may develop into fatal conditions.

The pons is part of the brainstem that in humans and other bipeds lies  inferior to the midbrain, superior to the medulla oblongata and anterior  to the cerebellum. [1]  The pons integrates both the medulla oblongata and the thalamus (NOTE:  the importance of conscious reappraisal of emotions (emotional  reappraisal) such as shame/empathy and anger/strength for the ARAS).  In the thalamus, students can have a slow (hypo-), accelerated (hyper-) or varied processing, and they have a problem with sensory integration disorders (corollary discharge) and emotional intensity or insensitivity with their neurodifference. The Pons, like the RAS, is responsible for arousal (hyper-, hypo- and varied). Plus, the pons connects areas of the brain that controls autonomic functions (parasympathetic (shame) /sympathetic (anger)): Acting or occurring involuntarily, without conscious control, in the somatic nervous system such as sleep and histamine inhibitors: The part of the peripheral nervous system that transmits signals from the central nervous system to skeletal muscles, and from receptors of external stimuli such as mediating sight, hearing, and touch and movement including speaking with conscious control (RAS-alta major chakra, crown chakra specifically via the thymus (Vagus Nerve Chakra) [Retrieved from].

The pons controls our breath known as ‘life’. God gave us the ‘life’, so  we can be the breath of God, leading a pure and blameless life. The  pons just doesn’t serve to help the different lobes communicate, but also  is the veil of God. The pons area also contains the trapezoid body  (RAS) where you are able to vocalize sounds. This allows us to  sing, praise and speak, and share His word- Hallelujah and Gregorian Chants and Turning Hatred/Grief into Joy: Ut Queant Laxis HERE.

An interesting study recently has found: Volume decreases in cortical areas, the amygdala, and basal  forebrain in Parkinson’s patients correlated with worsening symptoms of  the disease. A team of researchers from Forschungszentrum Jülich,  Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf and Ernst-von-Bergmann Klinikum  Potsdam analyzed the changes of brain volumes in 37 Parkinson’s patients  and 27 controls at up to 15 time points over up to 8.8 years using  magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

People also ask: What is the pons in the limbic system? Role of the pons in the carotid sympathetic chemoreflex?          

Carotid Body. The carotid body is a chemoreceptor located in the adventitia of the bifurcation of  the common carotid artery. Chemoreceptor function: Carotid body  monitors the blood’s pH, pCO2, and pO2 and thereby modulates  cardiovascular and respiratory function primarily through sympathetic  tone. [Retrieved from].

The carotid chemoreceptor (CC) controls your breathing during exercise, The mass discharges of the splanchnic sympathetic (SND) and phrenic  nerves (PND) were recorded in urethananesthetized rats with resected  vagal and aortic nerves. Carotid chemoreceptor (CC) stimulation with N2  inhalation (4-12 s) or cyanide (50-100 micrograms/kg iv) activated SND  in bursts synchronized with the postinspiratory phase (mean SND  increase: 105 +/- 8%), raised AP, and increased PND rate and amplitude  (n = 40). Brain transection at superior collicular level produced no  effect. The sympathetic (SChR) and respiratory chemoreflexes (RChR) were  reduced after transections through the pons. Lesions of the  dorsolateral pons (dl-pons) produced CO2-dependent apneusis and/or  tachypnea at rest. [Retrieved from].

It connects the cranial nerve nuclei III (Oculomotor nerve), IV (Trochlear nerve) and VI (Abducens nerve) together, and integrates movements directed by the gaze centers (frontal eye field) and information about head movement (from cranial VIII, Vestibulocochlear nerve- which The vestibulocochlear nerve is unusual in that it primarily consists of bipolar neurons. It is the nerve responsible for the special senses of hearing (via the cochlear nerve), and balance (via the vestibular nerve). Then, the cochlea detects the magnitude and frequency of sound waves. Students with dyslexia have tendency for speech deficits and chronic ear infections, auditory as well as visual processing issues in the terms of being a sound and word processing disorder.

Linguists are interested in language for its own sake, as a complex  product of the human mind. They are also interested in how language  develops in children, how it changes over time, and how it is used in  human society. Furthermore, Neuroscientist Suzana Herculano-Houzel has pointed out that our brains are different because of the number of neurons packed into our skulls — it’s less about the size of our brains. The density of that packing, and the ensuing neuronal connections this density allows for, gives rise to our ability to acquire language from birth and use it till death. She assumes that the main function of the brain is   to regulate our bodies as we move through life. That means that at   every given moment, our brains assess our hunger, threat levels, etc. to   figure out how much energy we need to get through the day. Thinking  and  cognitive perception are secondary products of how our brain  responds  predicatively to our environment. If the grammatical system is a resource that the brain uses depending on  context, then our emotions and identity can also affect how we use  grammar. This is precisely what we have found.

In addition, these Brodmanns [see Ras and Pons above] have been widely redefined, discussed,  debated, and refined exhaustively based on cytoarchitecture, cortical  functions, and brain plasticity. Brodmann areas of the cerebral cortex are based on the types of neurons  and connections that typically found each region. For Dyslexia this includes the left hemisphere language zones of their brain, (ie  anatomic regions called Superior Temporal Gyrus, Angular Gyrus and  Supramarginal gyrus, Broca’s region). There are 52  Brodmann  regions, covering the primary somatosensory cortex, primary motor  cortex, somatosensory association cortex, premotor and supplementary  motor cortex, dorsolateral/anterior prefrontal cortex, anterior  prefrontal cortex, and primary visual and audio cortexes, plus  additional areas. BA18 of Brodmann (human) refers to a subdivision of the cytoarchitecturally defined occipital region of cerebral cortex. In the human it is located in parts of the cuneus, the lingual gyrus and the middle occipital gyrus of the occipital lobe. Brodmann area 22 is cytoarchitecturally located in the posterior superior temporal gyrus of the brain. In the left cerebral hemisphere, it is one portion of Wernicke’s area. The prefrontal cortex contains Brodmann areas  is thought to be involved in psychological functions such as executive  tasks, attention, and memory. This Research Topic, since they are the most rostral, and might be  involved in more elementary computations as compared to, say, BA46,  which is clearly involved in working memory. Also, Brodmann area 10 (BA10, frontopolar prefrontal cortex, rostrolateral prefrontal cortex, or anterior prefrontal cortex, the  area is “described as “one of the least well-understood regions of the human brain”.[2] Ronel (2018) conducted a similar analysis for ADHD, in terms of 4 types  of selection/inhibition (lateral BA 8 – motor selection/inhibition;  lateral BA 9 – emotion selection/inhibition; lateral BA 10 – memory  selection/inhibition; lateral BA 11 – sensory selection/inhibition). Present research suggests that it is involved in strategic processes in memory recall and various executive functions. During  human evolution, the functions in this area resulted in its expansion relative to the rest of the brain.[3]” [Retrieved from]

It is the “one” umpire known as the mind. Thymus- to be, have, belong, remain, imagine living in love (wisdom, curiosity, “intellect”, connect)-It is known as “the seat of the soul”, and our Higher Intelligence & Imagination or “The Mind”- for the fact that it: holds a record of traumatic or painful events, dimensional to the subliminal content (see intelligence model below) and ancestral narration (see imagination).   High Heart Chakra, also called the ascended heart chakra, is connected with an organ: the thymus gland which before birth and throughout childhood (largest in the teen years-dormant at 50 years old). The thymus is a specialized primary  lymphoid organ of the immune  system. Within the thymus, thymus cell lymphocytes or T cells mature. T  cells are critical to the adaptive immune system, where the body adapts  specifically to foreign invaders. The thymus is located in the  upper  front part of the chest, in the anterior superior mediastinum, behind  the sternum, and in front of the heart. It is made up of two lobes, each  consisting of a central medulla and an outer cortex, surrounded by a  capsule. [2] The thymus is instrumental in the production and maturation of T-lymphocytes or T cells, a specific type of white blood cell that protects the body from certain threats, including viruses and infections; It plays a role in immunity, autoimmunity, and aging (it’s basically our twin flame and fountain of youth). It’s made up of a scheme showing development of branchial epithelial bodies from the  thoracic cavity of the foetus. I, II, III, IV. Branchial pouches.

There is a triangle that connects the Heart into the Kidneys.  The Kidneys are in the base of the triangle from left to right and the  point of the triangle is in the Heart. When the Heart is healed, there  is a twin flame ignition in our Heart and Kidneys, which shifts the  Heart configuration. Twin flames equals structure of light within the  Heart.

The invisible realm of the spirit is as real as the visible world. In  fact, the Scripture tells us that it is even more real (Hebrews 11:3).  And just as God gave us five natural senses to interact with the  physical world, He gave us five spiritual senses to connect with the  supernatural world. The Leb- high heart, mind and “the gut” which is the bodily organ by means of which the raw data of experience is shaped into thoughts, concepts, or judgments.

The puritan, John Flavel said, it’s light of the understanding, recognitions of the memory, seat of principles and the fountain of actions. John MacArthur – The “heart” commonly refers to the mind as the center of thinking and reason (Pr 3:36:21;7:3), but also includes the emotions (Pr 15:1530), the will (Pr 11:2014:14), and thus, the whole inner being (Pr 3:5). The leb aka heart and mind carries along several other organs of the body (cf. ear and eyes already in Pr 4:2021) mentioned frequently in wisdom instruction: mouth, lips, and eyes (parallel to “eyelids” or “orbs” in Pr 4:25), mouth, lips, and even the foot and hand. The heart is the depository of all wisdom and the source of whatever affects speech (Pr 4:24), sight (Pr 4:25), and conduct (Pr 4:2627).

I have actually been tutoring since 2003. Along with other independent tutoring/interventionist experiences, I have brought dozens of students from an emergent to an advanced reading level! In addition to tutoring, I have provided the reading strengths and needs of my students and share that information to classroom teachers, parents, specialized teachers, and other stakeholders.  Lastly, I have also been a trainer/presenter, since 2008 and really enjoy this aspect of my career. As an experienced trainer, I have trained on many topics including: literacy (the five components), classroom management, positive discipline, diversity character development, Montessori Philosophy, policies and procedures, child development, and Alabama's Pre-k. Take note: Schools and families are desperately looking for an alternative type of affordable multi-sensory, hands-on, and interesting instruction. Currently, I am training and interested in writing on the following topics: A Comparison of Pre-K to Kindergarten; Adolescent Literacy (7th+); Assessment; Developing Readers; Children’s Literature; Classroom Management Techniques; Comprehension; Montessori Philosophy; Environmental Print & Early Writing; Family Attachment; Language and Literacy; Outdoor Classroom; Poetry Writing (7th+); Positive Guidance; Fine-motor Development; Cursive Writing; Creative Writing; Comprehension: Study Skills/Test Taking Strategies; Morphology; Phonics Instruction; Diversity Education; Neurodiversity Education; HandWriting; Reading Strategies; Best Practices P-12. Thank you, Tricia Cook, MEd., RSP, AOG;
