How often are you able to stop for a moment, take a breath and still yourself? For most of us achieving hemispheric brain balance requires us to do just that.
But why is hemispheric brain balance so important? And where do we start?
Our brain is divided into two parts – right and left hemispheres which are connected by a bundle of nerves called the corpus callosum. This transfers signals between the right and left hemispheres. Our right brain hemisphere controls the left side of the body & the left brain the right side of our body.
The left brain is all about logic, numbers, analysis, facts, writing and language. The right concerns itself with emotions, creativity, visualisation, rhythm, understanding and intuition.
The left desires to see an order in things, the very process of understanding. and It loves time keeping.
The right, conversely sees the big picture without needing to work out the steps of its creation. It doesn’t question sensory input or need to watch the clock.
When we access data from our right brain hemisphere and tune into our intuitive side, we have the ability to connect with the still calm part within every one of us. The voice that understands what’s in our best interest. A knowing that helps you navigate the ideal way forward. The still calm voice is always with you. Is always part of you.
It’s just a matter of accessing it.
The problem is the left brain with its propensity to incessant chatter and logical analysis can limit or block this access. Lack of balance between the hemispheres can result in you missing those ‘Ah Ha’ moments, psychic downloads, and creative streams of consciousness.
An easy and natural way to balance your two brain hemispheres is do cross body exercises, another great way is through meditation. which helps slow down and release the left brain’s chatter.
Meditating is a fabulous way to get out of your own way, smooth the way forward and achieve your goals and desires.
