Right Versus Left Hemisphere!

Bouncing Back”– Rewriting your Brain for Maximum Resilience: Linda Graham
.

“Left hemisphere: Verbal processing: Language, Speech, Symbols

.
Right Hemisphere: nonverbal processing: visual images, body movements, emotions, experiences in relationship

.

.
Left hemisphere: linear processing (one bit of data after another in sequence)

.
Right hemisphere: holistic processing (seeing the big picture)

.

.
Left hemisphere: logical, rational processing: abstract reasoning and analysis, cause and effect.

.
Right hemisphere: emotional processing, including processing of facial expressions in fusiform gurus,

.

.
Left hemisphere: Sense of social and emotional self”

.
My two cents: Mindfulness practice, using focus on the breath, trains the mind to let attention fade from the left hemisphere (“The Ego”, thoughts, emotions, desires, needs, judgments, fears, worry, doubt, dissociation), allowing us to cross over to the other expansive side.

  1. interesting that I have to use the left brain to organize and see the pattern and label this so that the right side can then use the information. I guess we really do need both sides actively all working together – like people. I totally agree that when flowing from the right side, or is it from my gut, or my heart? that life is so much more JOYFUL. thanks for the helping direct to the expansive side. shine bright today my friend.

  2. Nice insight.

    It is our ability to go beneath the ego, judging, to experience the moment of now, that allows us to escape.

    We need time everyday on the right side, the expansive hemisphere.

    Everything on the left side is impermanent, judging, needing approval, acquiring possessions, accomplishments, fade in time.

    The only thing that exists is this next breath.

    That concept does not make sense on the left side.

    The right side has no words, consonants, judgments, it knows nothing of the past or the future.

    It totally exists only in this moment, now
