Getting lost in possibilities – part 2

So much has happened after the post of April 26, with the same title.

In fact it was about the balance in life, my life.

Finding balance is always a personal thing, for me a personal issue. We can become absorbed with the things that make our life worthwhile, that give our life meaning, that make us feel happy and acknowledged, only to find out at a certain point, that something is missing or that we need replenishment of our energy because we have lost sight of the “big whole”.

Brain halves influence us differently

Did I already mention the influence of our two brain halves on ourSelf in an older post? The subject is one of my favourites to write and think about so it may very well be the case.

To illustrate this subject a bit better than I could possibly do myself I have copied an article for you with thanks to” Livescience”. It looks a bit difficult to read, but it makes clear that scientists are not (yet) convinced there is a difference between left and right. 

During all the years that I have studied different forms of therapy, it was a starting point. A starting point that I have embraced fully.

Now that I am in my “golden years” I feel the need to explore the left side, the more logical side of the brain a bit more. (At least, that is how it feels to me and there is even discussion about that.  Is it the right or the left side, that is coupled to the logical. No discussion for me)!!

Playing bridge is supporting me in this. It is so different from Spiritualism .. it activates my logical side and gives the words “clarity”, “clear mindedness”, “openness” and “being in balance” another meaning.

“Are you right-brained or left-brained?

It’s a popular question, hovering at the edges of sound neuroscience. The left brain is supposed to be more creative and artistic, the right brain more organized and logical. Indeed, Google “right-brain dominance” or “left-brain dominance,” and you’ll find endless blog posts on the subject. You’ll also find quizzes that purport to tell readers which sort of person they are.” (For the rest of the article click on the link below).

Enjoy your life and remember there are two sides to a coin, there is light and dark, black and white and there is always a middle.

With regards to the brain .. try to mix your practicality with your emotions and vice versa. See the beautiful and complete person that you are.

With love,
