Our right brain fuctions are responsible for awakening intuition, which enables us to tap into higher knowledge, make amazing discoveries and develop inventions that transcend our personal experience and know how. Intuition is that still small voice of conscience, that knows right from wrong and truth from error. Some experts cll it the "higher Self".
A Story About Intuition...
Let me share a true story that happened to me that illustrates awakening intuition. While reading, see if you've had any similar experiences:
Ron (an old high school buddy) and I decided to drive up from San Diego to the L. A. area for an event.
On the drive up we got to talking about different things and for some reason our conversation turned to an old friend we hadn't seen in years, Chris Johnson who, a couple years earlier, his family told us had joined the Hari Krishna movement somewhere in Georgia. By the time we got to Pasadena, we pretty much forgot what we were discussing and went on to the event.
When it was over, we followed the crowd out and, guess what? You guessed it! There was none other than Chris Johnson sitting on the half-wall outside. The very person we just happened to be talking about a couple hours earlier was at the exact same place we were - Pasadena, California - three-years later and a hundred miles from home. Now, what are the odds of that?
Folks, I'm not making this up. We hadn't heard from Chris in nearly three years and had no idea exactly where he was. Personally, I believe Ron and I tuned in to an event that was about to occur. That's what experts in right brain education call "awakening intuition", "dynamic intuition" or intuitive thought. Some call it premonition. So where does this right brain sense come from and how can we tap into it? Keep reading and you'll find out!
The Mechanics of Awakening Intuition
First, let me run a few questions by you:
- Have you ever had any experiences like what I described above?
- And, do you think God, the "universe" or a "higher power" could be the moving "force" behind these dynamic intuitive events?
- If we're dialed in to this "force", do you think it's possible to predict future events?
- What about avoiding being in the wrong place at the wrong time? Can we avoid personal disaster by being "in tune" with God or the universe?
My story is not an isolated event. I've heard dozens of accounts, some even more interesting and unlikely than mine. For years these questions got me thinking and searching. So, now I'm sharing what I found with you. But don't believe me! This is only my experience and my opinion. You should make your own judgements.
How Awakening Our Intuition is Possible - Alpha Brain Waves
Dr. Shichida says the right brain produces brain waves which resonate with the universe. According to Shichida, the universe broadcasts at 7.5 Hz, just at the border between Alpha and Theta waves. Through meditation (a right brain activity) and other relaxation techniques, we can maintain our brain waves on the same frequency as the universe and even be receptive to it's inspiration.
Also, according to esoteric teachings, we live in a physical (time and space) universe and also in a non-physical universe that's not connected to time or space. So, there are seen and unseen forces we deal with daily.
What does it matter if we're in tune with the universe or not? Here's what the experts say: We are all connected to the universe and our right brain is a part of our mind that makes this connection through our vast subconscious mind. As mentioned, our subconscious mind occupies up to 97% of our brain functions. In fact, our subconscious and unconscious minds are "receiving stations" for all impressions, both good and bad, from God and elsewhere. There's a lot more to this but to stay on topic, let's just say there's a lot going on "behind the scenes."
We've established that the left brain is focused in time and space. The right brain taps into the part of our mind that has no sense of time or space. Experts say intuition and love allows us to tap tremendous higher knowledge, discoveries and inventions that transcend our personal experience and knowledge. When we take a look at geniuses throughout history and read about their lives, we find, for example, thatright brain geniuses like da Vinci drew plans for the helicopter hundreds of years before the first one was ever built. They all had that special right brain connection to the "universal Mind", or "mind of God". And, you know what? We all have that same potential.
Intuition in a Nut Shell
Intuition occurs when outer forces influence our subconscious minds. Our right brain picks up those vibrations as images, which are transferred to our left brain's outer consciousness. It's the theory of some that because part of the universe is not physical and is not anchored in time or space, we have access to past and future events through our right brain's senses. And, because we are all tied to the universe, we are all tied to each other and so thoughts of others we've had meaningful experiences, for example, with can bring us in tune with them at certain times (as I tried to illustrate with my personal story at the beginning this topic).
But, if our subconscious minds are inspired or impressed by the "mind of God," that doesn't mean those higher thoughts make it to our conscious awareness.
If our right brain is not well enough developed or integrated with left brain functions, there's no cross-over from the subconscious to the conscious mind, and we can "miss the boat" on whatever we were supposed to know at a given moment in time. It could be as simple as meeting up with an old friend that you had no previous knowledge would happen, or as life saving as taking a different route home from work for no logical (left brain) reason, and finding out later that you would have gotten caught in a serious accident on your normal route home had you not followed that split-second intuition.
Train Your Right Brain Functions for Intuitive Thought
There's still a lot of discoveries to be made in the area of right brain left brain connections as it relates to awakening intuition. What you've read is based on my own research, experiences and reflections gathered through the years. Some of the experiences I shared may even be similar to your own, to lesser or greater degree. One key to accelerated learning is developing your right brain function and senses. You'll discover many marvelous things about your potential that were just waiting to be unlocked. Subconscious intuition is one of these and all it takes are the right methods, some persistence and most of all, love. Loving others and all life puts us in an uplifting, positive attitude. It also opens us up to God's mind, bringing us into higher states of consciousness that opens the doors of opportunity so we can fulfill our reason for being here on earth.
