Last week we processed and unloaded the unconscious and subconscious mind. This week we become whole brain centric as we understand what the functions of the left and right hemispheres are and how we can make them work together to give us neuroplasticity or super brain thinking
When Albert Einstein’s brain was examined after death the only difference they found to a normal brain was the thickening of the tissue that interconnects the right and left brain hemispheres. Giving him a “Super Brain”.
The brain has right and left cerebral hemispheres which are divided by the longitudinal fissure. Both hemispheres have an outer grey matter and a cerebral cortex. They have individual functions and can also function together. For example:
- Linear reasoning functions of language such as grammar and word production are often controlled by the left hemisphere of the brain. In contrast, holistic functions of language such as intonation and emphasis are often controlled by the right hemisphere of the brain.
- The right brain does not distinguish between past, present or future but the left brain cuts reality up to give us the past, present and future.
- The left hemisphere is the elementary brain which releases memory of movement patterns.
- The right brain controls your projection and has an independent identity from the left brain.
What this shows us is that we need the synchronization of both hemispheres at the same time to give us the ability to live and act with grace in these challenging times Balancing the hemispheres enables you to convert ideas into actions and to function as an integrated whole
The kriya and meditations we will be practicing this week will help to develop neuroplasticity. The use of mantra with the postures stimulates the central neural cavity in the brain to allow you to hear the inner voice of your soul. This is accomplished through both chemical and electrical adjustments to the brain. The experienced effect is both mental and physical relaxation.
