Plus we learn as we sleep.
A healthy part of the learning process.
An article at sciencenewsfor students.com, “Learning rewires our brain” (1), helps understand the special value of learning and sleep.
The article says (bolds are mine) : As teachers, coaches and parents everywhere like to say: Practice makes perfect.
Doing something over and over again doesn’t just make it easier. It actually changes the brain.
As we learn something new, cells that send and receive information about the task become more and more efficient. It takes less effort for them to signal the next cell about what’s going on. In a sense, the neurons become wired together.
Learning while you slumber
The brain doesn’t shut down overnight. In fact, catching some zzz’s can dramatically improve learning. That’s because as we sleep, our brains store memories and new information from the previous day. So a poor night’s sleep can hurt our ability to remember new things. Until recently, however, researchers didn’t know why.
The article points out that the brain fires as we sleep, but doesn’t fire normally. The brains electrical signals at night fire near the middle of an axon, then travel back in the direction of the cell body. In other words, the cells fire in reverse.
This boosts learning. It makes connections between cells stronger and helps wire the cells together . Cells involved in learning new information are most likely to fire in reverse during sleep so the next day, they will be wired more tightly to each other.
How to sleep better.
While the world focuses on the Coronavirus pandemic, one of the worst health epidemics in our civilized world is a little talked about ailment of being out of sync or disconnected from the circadian rhythms. This dis-ease is called Chronodisruption (CD).
CD probably kills way more than COVID-19 as it’s a precursor to numerous diseases including; diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. CD leads to poor cognitive function, mood disorders, sleep disorders, obesity, morning droops, daytime sleepiness, reduced school performance, reduced driving reaction time and is known to lead to substance abuse.
Fortunately CD has a free and easy cure… getting tuned with nature’s circadian cycles.
Our bodies are naturally attuned to the sun and moves in three cycles of four hour intervals. The cycles can be called air, water and fire cycles. Here’s the natural rhythm.
2am to 6am: Air Cycle. This is time to wake up. The mind is light, active and this is a good time to think, multi task and learn.
6am to 10am: Water Cycle. Strength is increased. This is a good time to do physical activity and exercise.
10am to 2pm: Fire Cycle. This is the time for digestion. High noon is the best time for the main meal of the day.
2pm to 6pm: Air Cycle. The mind is light and active again. Study and do mental work.
6pm to 10pm: Water Cycle. If you eat a heavy evening meal, this cycle will digest it. However, if your evening meal is early and light, this second fire cycle acts like an oven cleaner and burns up stresses and toxicities gained during the day.
10pm to 2am: Fire Cycle. Best time for deepest sleep.
We and everything around us are systems composed of cycles. When our cycles are in tune with the circadian cycle… we live in a more comfortable… lowest stress… most efficient, energetic and longer way.
Electric lights and late nights, plus the internet and TV, especially the 10pm or 11pm news are the nemesis of a healthy Circadian cycle.
It’s easier to reset your circadian clock while staying at home!
The stay at home routine allows more control over when we wake, exercise eat and sleep.
To rest your cycle, turn off the Wi-Fi after supper. Stop using your cell phone. Turn off or dim all the lights and use candles or battery powered candles for evening light.
Get outside for a bike, walk or swim, as early as you can in the morning, ideally to watch the sunrise. Go to bed before ten pm or at your first sign of sleepiness. Get up in the morning before six am.
After six pm, avoid phones, televisions and computers. Go to bed reading a book by candlelight.
CD is one of the most prevalent epidemics in our modern world. Fortunately, the reset that eliminates CD is easy. A change in our rhythms can remove the ailment completely with a cure that’s so simple it has been taught to us in a rhyme:
Early to bed, early to rise. Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
Try it and you’ll feel better and be healthier as well.
We include deeper than sleep learning sessions in our online Super Spanish course.
To help you learn and sleep better as the world starts to reset, I am offering a special, one day, “Learn Spanish and better natural heath special.
Order our Super Spanish Course at half price ($79) and I’ll send you our three natural health report, a $59.85 value FREE.

We use “deeper-than-sleep” sessions in our Super Spanish online course.
Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.
In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador. That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish. Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines. They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.
Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar. When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology (what the heck is morphology anyway) and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.
Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov. Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.
My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s. She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.
This course is now available online.
Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days? Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun. This course works because it is education without stress!
How The Course Works
The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process. At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.
You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.
The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time. Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.
Here is the proof.
“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.
For example action is accion.
Manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”
There you have it. How long did it take you to read these four sentences?
Ask yourself. “How many words do you know that end in ION”.
You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.
How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words? How soon would you have forgotten them?
You will never forget these hundreds of Spanish words… gained in just seconds!
The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.
The third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.
The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds). This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.
Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything you desire in Spanish.
Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.
In an incredibly short time you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.
Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic. This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.
I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador. The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became. My second language was automatically improving. The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.
The create portion of the brain is more powerful than the part of the brain that recalls. When your mind creates something… it owns it! You do not have to remember, as in the case of the ION Spanish words you now know.
During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know. This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.
You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.
Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.
When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised . You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.
Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.
The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).
The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but during the pandemic crisis we are knocking another $70 from the price so you can start now for only $79.
But in an extra special offer, just for today, there is even more.
The most important asset any of us can have during this pandemic is a healthy body and strong immune system!
I was reminded of the need for natural health the when I suffered a two week bout with this viral infection.
The symptoms were nasty but fortunately over the past 40 years I have taken MDs, DOs, ODs, DCs, DVMs and DDs as well as physician and nurse practitioners, nurses and numerous other type of health care providers around the world to meet with Andean and Amazonian shamans, yatchacs, Oriental healers, accupuncturists, herbalists, Indian ayurvedic vaidyas, pulse therapists and essential oil practitioners to name a few.
I used what we learned with these healers. This was of immense help during the weeks I was ill. That’s why I plan to be wearing this new T-shirt. What could have been a dangerous disease for a 73 year old male, was closer to an inconvenience.
The knowledge we gleaned in these decades of research and study have been encapsulated in three natural health reports I wrote about:
In this special one day offer, I would like to send you these three reports FREE.
The Super Spanish Course includes meditative techniques that can help your immune system, but I want you to have more, available in the three Natural Health Reports which at $19.95 each normally cost $59.85.
Today when you order the Super Spanish Course, I’ll send these three reports FREE.
Our Super Spanish Course course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but during the COVID-19 crisis we are knocking another $70 from the price so you can start now for only $79.

Here are some testimonials from the Super Spanish course.
Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.
One delegate from St. Louis wrote: Hi Gary, Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career. What is my new career? Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.
Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be. We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning. I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October. Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.
Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning. Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off. You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially. Best regards, Denis Molloy.
Another wrote about the Super Spanish course: Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish. Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course. In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling. Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish. I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.
After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!
Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador. The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish. And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.
Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.
I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course. One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning. In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org). What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life. Rob Christi. Cotacachi, Ecuador
Another attendee from a course wrote: “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.
“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it. It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.
“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this course. Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you. This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.
“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning. Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!” Nadine Taylor
Still not sure?
Take just ten minutes to let me prove to you that this super fast way to gain the basics can let you can communicate in Spanish in an incredibly short time.
