"We now understand what it is to be in alignment and what holds us
is the Love of the entire universe."
During a stroke, brain scientist Jill Bolt Taylor experienced the gradual shutting down of her left-brain. In her incredible TED Talk My Stroke of Insight, she relays her experience and describes the separate hemispheres of the brain as having the following functions.
"I Am" - identity separate from other
Linear and methodical thinking
Thinks in language and numbers
Categorises & organises in association with past and projects into future
Our constant brain chatter
Perception as the one having the experience
"We are One" - I am one with the flow of all energy
Sensing energy through sensory systems
Thinks in pictures and images
Only about the present with no past 'baggage' or thought of the future.
Expansive and euphoric, 'Nirvana'
Perception as the esoteric witnessing of the self
In western culture, our overactive left-brain has been given the top job of trying to analyse, organise and control our entire personal world, when so much of that is actually beyond our control Hence all the stress.
Contrary to what most of us learnt at school, the receptive right-brain has way more to offer than mere creative imagination. In alignment with our heart-centre, it is the connection to our Higher Self and Divine Creation.
"Every hair on our body is now of The Divine, we are love itself and
we wonder how could we have ever thought that we weren't enough or
had to prove our power or presence somehow."
All One therapeutic practices; Art Therapy, All One Dance and Lomi Lomi Massage are all right-brain practices that engage wholistic and receptive states of consciousness offering insight and greater balance for overall wellness.
Some other simple ways you can access the potential of your right-brain.
Envisioning what coming into balance may look and feel like.
Becoming receptive to the Divine unfolding of all as One, allows us to ground more deeply in acceptance of our unique, authentic being. We come to realise that just by our existence we already are and always have been an important part of the Divine dance of all things unfolding.
We might then see how absurd it is to think we knew better than what is already happening or to believe we know why any occurrence really happens within the infinite scheme of this Great Mystery.
Perhaps we'd next realise that it is wisest to surrender all the conditions of our conditioning, handing it all over to the Divine Teacher. A space may then open inside us for intuition to enter and now we realise we are being guided by clear signs along the path of our heart... our authentic mission on Earth.
We now understand what it is to be in alignment and what holds us is the Love of the entire universe. Every hair on our body is now of The Divine, we are love itself and we wonder how could we have ever thought that we weren't enough or had to prove our power or presence somehow.
