The brain is divided into two hemispheres, left and right, which have completely different effects on the human body.
People with a leading left hemisphere are usually logical, rational, speak well and quickly understand. They process information sequentially, studying it in parts, and only then add the knowledge gained into a coherent picture.
People with the leading right hemisphere are usually visionaries who process information intuitively. They first catch the picture as a whole and only then go into details. In addition, they are more introverted and sensitive, especially to light, sound and criticism.
Our educational system is focused on children with a developed left hemisphere, because they think in a linear way that is easier to teach. Right-brain children adapt worse, because they are prone to visualization and they need visual images to understand one or another theory. Because of this, they are often diagnosed with diffuse attention, or attention deficit. However, these children simply absorb the material differently, and when they get this opportunity, no problems with learning arise.
When the brain stem enters the spinal cord, the nerves at the base of the skull that extend from the two hemispheres intersect. As a result, the right side of our body is associated with a rational, logical part, and the left side with creative qualities and feelings. However, logical abilities have nothing to do with the fact which hand – left or right – dominates. This, apparently, almost does not matter. There are quite a few left-handed artists, but the share of left-handed tennis players is also great!
Left and right side of the body
Many Eastern schools describe the difference between the right and left sides, as the difference between male and female, yin and yang. This is not about the field, but about the male and female qualities that we all possess. If we apply this principle to the language of thought, then inevitably there is a connection between problems that occur with one side of the body and an internal conflict relating to one or another aspect of the corresponding principle.
The right side of the body in both men and women reflects the masculine principle. She is responsible for the ability to give, rule and assert itself. This is the authoritarian and intellectual part of our being that relates to the outside world:
- social status
- politics and authority.
In both men and women, the right side of the body represents a connection with the inner male principle.
Problems with the right side of men can mean conflict related to the expression of masculine qualities, responsibility for the family, difficulties of competition at work, lack of self-esteem, or uncertainty about sexual orientation. In women, the right side reflects the conflict between motherhood and career, difficulties with the manifestation of confidence and assertiveness in the position that men usually occupy. Some mothers have to intensively develop the male side, feed the family and make decisions, which can also lead to internal conflict.
In addition, the right side reflects relationships with men: with father, brother, loved one, son – and all conflicts that may be associated with these relationships.
An example of this is the fate of Ellie, who appealed to me with complaints of slight numbness of the right side of her body, which had been persecuting her since adolescence. As a child she was a real tomboy. During the conversation, it turned out that the numbness appeared shortly after the father expressed an urgent desire for her to become a true lady and learn a secretary, while the only thing Ellie wanted was to become a military pilot.
As a result, she had to cut off her assertiveness or, more precisely, to break the connection with this part of her, which caused her indisposition, namely, the numbness of the right side. In order to be healed, Ellie needed to forgive her father for imposing her will on her, fully believing in herself, to follow her own desires, and reviving that depressed, unrecognized part in herself. When I last saw her, she studied as a pilot, although not as a military man.
The left side of the body in both men and women reflects the feminine principle. It means the ability to ask for help, accept, obey, feed and care for others, be creative, artistic, listen and trust your own wisdom. This side is connected with the house and the inner world of reflection and intuition.
In men, problems with the left side reflect difficulties with the display of care and sensitivity, the ability to cry and show their own feelings, appeal to their own creative abilities, intuition and inner wisdom. Since childhood, boys are told that brave men do not cry, that is why so many adult men never find contact with their sensitive, sensitive side.
In women, the left side reflects problems with the expression of vulnerability, femininity, care and maternal feelings, the conflict between sensitivity and responsibility.
In addition, the left side reflects relationships with women: mother, sister, loved one, wife, daughter – and all conflicts that may be associated with this relationship.
Here’s what the massage therapist Jenny Britton writes:
“David came to the massage with complaints of back pain from the left side. When I started massaging his back, he began to tell me that he had recently canceled a wedding that was to take place in two months. A wedding day had already been appointed, a dress was made, and she and the bride even bought a house. David said he would be happy to continue living with her, but she insisted on the wedding or the complete break. David decided to break, and it was not easy. His back – on the lower left, in the zone of emotional support / assertion of his rights / connection with women – was tight and tense. He said that from life with his mother he immediately switched to life with the bride, and only now he understood how much he needed to stand on his own feet. ”
