Chapter 15 in the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge entitled “Leading-edge Neuroscience Reveals Significant Correlations Between Beliefs, the Whole-Brain State and Psychotherapy” is written by Jeffrey L. Fannin. Ph.D. and Robert M. Williams M.A..
This is such an interesting chapter. It talks about beliefs and the whole-brain state.
Have you heard about the Whole-Brain State?
The authors say:
“A great deal of research has been conducted for decades on what has come to be called ‘brain dominance’ theory (also known as split-brain research). The findings of this research indicate that in general, each hemisphere of the cerebral cortex tends to specialize in, and preside over, different functions, processes different kinds of information and deals with different kinds of problems.
The LEFT hemisphere: uses logic/reason, thinks in words, deals in parts/specifics, analyzes/breaks apart, thinks sequentially, identifies with the individual, is ordered/controlled.
The RIGHT hemisphere: uses emotion/intuition, thinks in pictures, deals in wholes/relationships, synthesizes/ puts together, thinks simultaneously, identifies with the group, is spontaneous/free.”
The Whole-Brain State refers to a balanced identification with both hemispheres of the brain, the authors say.
“In addition to its usefulness as a tool for dealing more effectively with life’s changes, past, present and future, the Whole-Brain State has another major benefit. It can be used as a foundation for quickly and effectively changing self-limiting subconscious beliefs.”
Do you function in the Whole-Brain State or does your brain favors on hemisphere over the other?
Wouldn’t it be really cool to find out?
