Hypnosis and Meditation for "Left-Brained" Folks

Hypnosis and Meditation for "Left-Brained" Folks
By William T Batten

One of the perks of having a solid web presence and decent SEO is strangers from all over the world find your website. "Of course", you might think, "that's the whole point of running a business online".

That's true... but that's not what I'm talking about right now.

It's cool because you get to see what people are thinking. Although most search terms used to find you are encrypted, plenty aren't. So I know many people find me with a couple of questions in mind:

What's the neuroscience behind hypnosis and meditation?

And how do you enter a trance - hypnotic, meditative or otherwise - if you're a left-brained person?

As always, I'm eager to show off my knowledge, so let's talk about that.

Firstly, let's talk about what 'being left-brained' means. The left hemisphere of the brain tends to process information differently than the right.

The left specialises in logic, details and planning.

The right is better at abstract reasoning, experiences and joining the dots.

Now, in practice, there's not much difference between the two halves of the brain. While not identical, they're more similar than this idea suggests.

And any complex mental task - say, analysis or creative thinking - uses your whole brain. So people aren't left-brained... unless they've had the right hemisphere surgically removed.

But I know that's not what you mean.

So-called left-brained people are highly analytical. They struggle to admire a sunset without thinking about what they're going to do next. Or judging themselves for how they're admiring the sunset ("am I experiencing this qualia right?").

Sound familiar?

If so, you've probably experimented with meditation and struggled with it. Analytical people see the potential benefits of the practice, but often find it hard to switch off that voice inside.

It's hard to meditate while part of you is assessing your performance and wondering if you're in a trance yet.

You have two options:

Learn to quiet your mind, including the part that tells you that you need to quiet your mind.

The benefits are enormous, but I won't pretend it's easy.

Or...

Have you ever seen a hypnotherapist guiding someone into trance? There are dozens of ways to hypnotise someone but - especially with hypnotherapy - it often involves talking to the person.

Sometimes without stopping.

Which might spark an idea: what if you trained your inner dialogue to be your hypnotherapist?

Instead of quieting your mind, you could simply listen.

The more it speaks, the more it guides you into trance.

Wouldn't that be something?

I use both meditation and hypnosis every day... but it's reasons like this that make me love hypnosis more.

Instead of working against your mind's nature, it works with it.

And you can experience hypnosis right now at no cost.

5 Industries Already Focused On Renewable, Sustainable Energy

 By  Richard Brody  While, unfortunately, political spin, is, a reality of our system of government, we must not overlook, the potential dangers, of, proceeding, with the same - old, same - old, rather than seeking the finest, often - necessary, well - considered, viable solutions, to address true needs, goals, priorities, etc! In 2016, Donald Trump upset the political experts, and normal expectations, by articulating a campaign strategy, emphasizing his campaign slogan, Make America Great Again! However, many believe, the past four years, has seriously set us, back, significantly, in many areas, especially, those related to the environmental, and climate needs, and need to seek renewable, sustainable energy sources, and approaches, instead of, merely, the same - old, same - old, business - as - usual, and excessive reliance on fossil fuels. While politicians, often, seem to focus on their personal agenda, etc, the world must address these challenges, sooner, rather than later! Even, m

ABCs Of Your Career Journey - U Is For Unleash

 By  E. Elizabeth Carter  How often do you completely let go? In other words, when was the last time you just stopped running on that hamster wheel of life and took a real break from the action? It is important to take time-outs periodically in order to have the opportunity to unleash your inner self. This is not just about spending a quick moment to "stop and smell the roses" but instead hitting the pause button for a period of time. The issue with doing this is that we have a tendency to unleash our inner critic. It is bad enough that we are bombarded 24/7 with negative news and images so why would we want to focus on negative things about ourselves? Is it because we have too high expectations of others and then we feel obligated to even be harder on ourselves? You need to just stop! All this negativity does not help you with your career journey. Instead it actually can do the opposite. By constantly berating ourselves we lose confidence and motivation to take on new opport
