Mind-Body Science FULL BRAIN INTEGRATION


True intelligence lies in the function of the whole brain—both hemispheres right and left. This is what scientists refer to as full brain functioning; which includes logic, creativity, emotion and intuition, and comprises the alpha, theta and delta states of consciousness. It is an ignorant contradiction from those who claim to be intellectuals if they apply only logic from left-brain processes to do most of their thinking for them, because it only accounts for 10 percent of their brain power. Using both logic and intuition from the higher states of consciousness, such as the alpha or theta states is a key to using a higher percentage of your brain power. Scientifically speaking, only 10 percent of our psyche is the conscious mind (logical, conscious awareness) and the rest, 90 percent is submerged and unseen (unconscious and preconscious). Without the skill to tap into our higher states of consciousness, we are only operating 10 percent of our brain power.

The human brain is divided into two main sections called 'hemispheres' that contain opposite, yet complementary abilities, namely the left cerebral hemisphere and the right cerebral hemisphere, or broadly referred to as "left-brain" and "right-brain". Conscious thought, processes, sensations, intellectual functions, memory storage and retrieval, and complex motor patterns originate in the cerebral hemispheres. The hypothalamus contains centers involved with emotion, such as the limbic system and autonomic function and hormone production. The pituitary gland is the primary link between the nervous system and the endocrine systems.The most significant determinant is which hemisphere you 'prefer' to use in responding to sensory input and external stimuli. This is referred to as preference 'dominance', which represents someone who predominantly reacts to life using their left hemisphere abilities is referred to as 'left-brain dominant' and vice versa.

It is important to understand that your brain dominance is a flexible and changeable asset. The ability to 'switch' hemispheres, that is, to act upon the skills and talents of your appropriate hemisphere at the appropriate moment is a mark of balance or wholeness in the individual. Although one may be dominant in one hemisphere, also termed hemispheric specialization, does not mean that the two hemispheres function independently of each other. The fibers of the corpus callosum link the two hemispheres, including their sensory information and motor commands. The left hemisphere is referred to as the categorical hemisphere and contains the general interpretive and speech centers and is the hemisphere responsible for reading, writing and speaking. It is also important for performing analytical tasks, such as calculations and logical decision making. Some features of the left brain include: logic, detail, calculating and organizing information, serial and linear, methodical, thinking in past and future tenses, single task operations, feelings of separateness and isolation, judgment, and thinking in terms of language; which is our ongoing brain chatter. Creativity, intuition and instincts are regarded as right hemisphere skills that performs analytical sensory information and relates the body to the sensory environment; which permit the identification of familiar objects by collectively using the basic five senses in addition to the intuitive senses such as the six senses (more than one) as well.

The right hemisphere is referred to as the representational hemisphere. Some of these right-brain attributes include parallel processing, multi-tasking, somatosensory sensations, present-tense, feelings of connection and unity, sociality, interaction, artistic, intuitive, meaning and purpose, philosophy, spirituality, peace and euphoria. Right and left brain are sometimes referred to as female or male aspects of the brain, because in general, most women tend to be more dominant in their creative, spiritual and intuitive aspects of the right brain, and most men tend to be more dominant in their logical left-brain aspects, although every male and female possess both masculine and feminine qualities. These are represented by a balance in duality; such as the yin and the yang. Both are vital to our physical, mental and spiritual health as well as our advancement, both as a unit and individually as we each demonstrate a harmonious blend of strength and nurturing as well as become balanced in both our masculine and feminine drives. Just as we need to use both legs to walk effectively, we need to use both hemispheres of the brain including thought and emotion, full brain consciousness, conscious and subconscious to respond to life in a balanced fashion.

The brain stem consists of the midbrain, pons and medulla oblongata, which is the segment of the brain that is attached to the spinal cord and relays sensory information to the thalamus and other centers. The cells in our body have the ability to send out and receive information and stimuli. The information is subjective in nature and although affected by its external environment, be it healthy or stressful, it’s not the function of the cells to interpret these signals as “positive” or “negative”, it is however the role of the mind and the individual to interpret and respond to these signals. The role of the left brain primarily is to interpret these informational substances and the role of the right brain primarily is to act or react according to the interpretation of the information. This can serve as a lesson that all information that comes to us is subjective and only interpreted as good or bad depending upon the intellectual maturity and perception of the individual.

Dr. Eric Kandell and his associates at Columbia University of Physicians and Surgeons have proved that biochemical change wrought at the receptor level is the molecular basis of memory. Using neuropeptides as the indication, our bodymind retrieves or represses emotions and behaviors. These discoveries are important in appreciating how memories are stored not only in the brain, but in a psychosomatic network extending into the body, particularly in the ubiquitous receptors between nerve cells and bundles of cell bodies (ganglia) which are distributed not just in and near the spinal cord, but also along pathways to internal organs and the surface of our skin. “The same molecules that run every system in our bodies; our digestion, our breathing, our disease fighting immune system are the basis of our emotions, including our feelings, our beliefs and subconscious mind and even our memories. The decision about what becomes a thought rising to consciousness and what remains an undigested thought pattern buried at a deeper level in the body is mediated by the receptors. The fact that memory is stored at the receptor level means that memory processes are emotion-driven and unconscious, but can be made conscious” as we awaken to them, says Dr. Candace Pert Ph.D.

Some scientists, psychologist and psychiatrists and most holistic practitioners and therapists have discovered that the physical brain is the conscious mind and the body is the unconscious mind—an entire intellectual network we need to become more familiar with by listening to it and communicating with it. Thus, there is an appropriate term in place, “bodymind”. There is an abundance of ancient wisdom, but it is up to the willingness of each individual to learn, awaken and arouse their faculties to a higher state of consciousness; bringing us to our wholeness and awareness of who we really are. Lack of knowledge due to closed mindedness is always associated with an unwillingness to know or learn. Open your mind and you will learn this; as you learn that you always receive as much as you accept. You can learn how to awaken this process by raising your conscious awareness and by tuning into your internal world. You can awaken from the acceptance of whole truth and reality. In fact, you can raise your conscious awareness just in your own body through concentration and visualization, you can increase blood flow into a body part, increasing the availability of oxygen and nutrients to carry away toxins and nourish the cells. Neuropeptides can alter the blood flow from one part of the body to another by merely intending it. The application of visualization and guided meditation is one simple way to raise the level of conscious awareness while building our emotional I.Q and awakening our mind’s other intellectual network—intuition!

Life leads us from one hemisphere to the other as we learn to stride forward along our life's path using our brain. Ultimately the goal for us all, with respect to hemispheric dominance or specialization and activity, is to achieve a state where we feel balanced and equally comfortable in both hemispheres—whole brain functioning. Given that your brain is the most powerful organ in your body and is the most powerful tool you have in creating your life experience, this makes it one of your greatest assets. So wouldn’t it make eminent sense to learn to use its power effectively? Indeed, using a combination of both conscious directed effort from the prefrontal cortex (PFC) and emotion from the limbic system, we can make deliberate changes and improvements in our lives. We must awaken our intellectual senses by accessing our higher states of consciousness. When operating only 10 percent of our brain power, we are limiting our perceptions to our basic five senses; which is the basis for survival, fear and competition. This leaves us fighting for power over one another and keeps us functioning at the animal level while preventing us from achieving human advancement. These basic 5 senses are external, while our heightened 6 sense(s) are internal. Full mind integration incorporates the mental, physical and spiritual aspects. Your intelligence in part is determined by your ability to develop and condition these other senses. One who has acquired the skill to collectively incorporate the logical, emotional and spiritual features engaging all aspects of the mind will begin to tap into pure intelligence leading to full brain integration.
