“Bouncing Back”: Right Hemisphere


The right hemisphere processes our experiences holistically:



for example, we recognize someone’s face all at once



rather than adding up individual perceptions of the eyes, nose, lips, and other features to make a whole.



It processes any situation as a gestalt, the big picture, automatically.



Because of its extensive neural connections with the limbic system in the lower brain the source of our most primitive emotions the right hemisphere is sometimes referred to as our “emotional brain.”




It is the seat of the sense of self who we know ourselves to be in relation to the world and the seat of our common humanity.

My two cents:  Remember the right hemisphere only comprehends now,  this moment.    The past and future do not exist.


No words, thoughts or judgments exists, a Rolodex looks like many pages of pixels.


Right or wrong,  good or bad, loss or gain are non existent.


This side is expansive, free and highly intuitive.


Happiness seems to visit those who hang around the right hemisphere for longer periods of time.
