Right Brain, Left Brain

Standard

“I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.”

“I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.”

Which one are you?

I am pretty sure I am both – and not just a little bit of both… I feel like all of us can switch brain modes. This book my mom gave me talked about how if you consciously try – you can switch to your right brain mode, which is where you can do all your deep thinking. What interested me is that the lady said you can feel this shift – i tried it over and over again and I think I almost got there a couple of times. You can feel your body loosen, you can feel the pressure thin and maybe, if you’re lucky, you can feel the colours that your mind is projecting.

Being a Right brain person is amazing. It sets you free, you aren’t forced to see the logic in your everyday life, you can go with the flow. On the other hand, the Left brain person finds it compelling to undertake these extra thinking processes. Unconventional is the new conventional! Everywhere I go, people are talking about creativity. What no one is telling you that even though the Right brain is an amazing place in all our minds and we should go there often, the Left brain is keeping us sane. I guess what I am saying is that there are certain times to use the left brain and times to let go and switch to your Right brain mode! Be both – and be the best of both!

    We all use both hemispheres, and they communicate all the time. It’s nice to know that we’re not stuck in one place. We can learn to use and enjoy both.
