Step to the right of your left hemisphere

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 colours. 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. 

I’ve just seen the most fantastic TED talk that I absolutely must share with you all.

It’s by a lady called Jill Bolte Taylor who is a Neuroanatomist who tells the story of what happened to her when she had a stroke in the left side of her brain.

She talks about how the right side of the brain keeps us in the present moment and how the left side is concerned with the past and the future.

She puts forward the idea that if we were to spend more time processing thoughts from the right side of our brain we would be able to spend more time living in the present moment and therefore, be able to more easily experience peace and happiness.

I know that up until very recently I spent the majority of my life living in the left side of my brain. And up until a few years ago, I was very preoccupied with things from the past that I perhaps hadn’t processed and things in the future that I was worried or fearful of.

It is my intention, in every moment of my waking life, to be as present as I can, to experience as much peace, love and joy that I can, and live a life that is true for me.

And I write this blog to help to inspire others to do the same.

Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,
