Awaken the Right Brain-A Shamanic Exercise

Awaken the Right Brain-A Shamanic Exercise by Jan Engels-Smith

Awaken the right brain

 

Reading this blog is a very left-brain activity. The goal of this exercise is about trying to move out of that left-brain way of being and more into the right-brain. The left-brain understands and creates the structure of ordinary reality—this is the reality we see as ordinary. It is the way we are accustomed to functioning. When we are working with the spirits, we are working in non-ordinary reality. The right-brain understands and inhabits non-ordinary reality.Bring your awareness into your body to shift your focus and dominance from that very busy mind of the very linear, left-brain, and more into the spaciousness of the un-manifest, or the right-brain. Start by calling your self back into your self. You might ask, “What does that mean?” We get really scattered, we have a busy mind, and it fragments us. I want you to bring yourself present, feel yourself right here. Ask any of your energy that has been scattered to return to you now. Allow your consciousness to come back to your center, and call yourself back in. Notice what starts happening with your body and the shifting of energy. Make sure you keep your breathing nice and deep.Now I want you to consciously open up your crown chakra. Your crown chakra sits right on the top of your head. And just like an aperture of a camera, I want you to see it opening up. And when it opens up like that, light almost immediately starts pouring into it. That light will move down through your face, down thru your neck, and then have it go to your heart. Have it swirl around in your heart, meeting the energy of you. The energy you carry in your heart.And so this beautiful dance is created as these two energies come together. And then I would like you to open the apertures either on your feet or your root chakra, and draw up the energy of the earth, the sacred earth. This beautiful, beautiful planet we live in and on. And drawing this energy up through your root, be sure to get your legs taken care of, and through your abdominal area, through your solar plexus, and again into your heart. And so now you have three energies swirling around there. One from the earth, one from above, and your own personal energy. Just feel your heart expanding and opening, and the energies there are getting larger and larger, and more connected.

Now I would like you to take that energy and send it down your left arm and out your left hand to greet the person next to you or to fill the space you are in. Intentionally say hello to all the beings, seen and unseen, through your energy. Greet them with a purity of truly honoring who they are, to be sharing this space with them. You are saying hello; it is so wonderful to meet you. My heart recognizes your heart. And then bring your attention back to your center. Now have the energy swirling again, and with intention again send it down your right arm and out your right hand and say hello. I am so glad that we are sharing this time together. I want to meet you. Our souls, our energies have come together in a good way. Hello. It is so wonderful to meet you and see you and to be with you. Our lives are now connected in some way, and that is a wonderful thing. And now bring your attention back to your center.

Now, with all of this swirling energy, I would like you to say hello to yourself. Do you ever greet yourself during the day? Do you ever say hello to you, and I’m glad I’m me, I’m glad I’m you. There are two parts inside of us. There is the ego self and there is the True Self. They live simultaneously in our bodies. You are just saying hello, you are appreciating, you are in awe of the wonder of it all. You have woven a beautiful tapestry of light, of connection, of beauty. It holds your container, your circle together.

So could you get a sense of what it was like to direct energy? Could you get a sense of that in your body? And move it in a different direction? Could you get a sense of that change?

The Untapped Power of the Right Brain

The Untapped Power of the Right Brain Is the Key to Our Ascension by Jan Engels-Smith

The Untapped Power of the Right Brain

 

Earth itself is in ascension. We are in a process of change that portends the possibility of wonderful differences in the future. The earth is responding to the needs of humanity to connect in more meaningful ways with our highest aspirations for momentous change to our current condition. Our Mother Earth understands better than we that existence can and must offer wonderfully positive purpose for all of us and we have only to connect to understand and benefit.

Using Our Right Brains to Create Powerful New Connections

We often feel that we are buffeted by powerful forces beyond our control. But the earth reminds us that our unity with nature and our recognition that we are part of a larger cosmic force helps us to see the greater power of a spirit that exists in the universe that overwhelms the negative vibrations of the daily news of war, tragedy, and loss. Employing the right brain creates this connection for us and allows us to erase the blind spots in our view of possibilities. Many of us who work in the metaphysical sectors are major right-brain users.

Shamanic values and New Age ideas have offered a different way of being. We have all heard of the concepts of unity and oneness, living in love, and focusing on our commonalities rather than our differences. These ideas are actually fourth- and fifth-dimensional realities. In this realm, we become aware of how we are connected to each other and to the universe. The spirits and the nonphysical beings who share this planet with us are commonly revealed in these dimensions.

I have had the experience of being in many cultures that are right-brain dominant. Their lifestyles are inclusive and alive with spiritual interactions throughout each and every day. The Bushmen of Africa are known to be the best trackers on the planet. They can track animals on bare rock in the absence of any visible trail. In left-brain-dominant societies, trackers would look for physical signs, such as broken twigs, impressions in the earth, or other third-dimensional reality imprints. But the Bushmen “see” the energy residue from the animal. They are seeing with the clairvoyant eyes of the right brain, which see the nonphysical forms left by the animal.

This energy residue is also full of information. As Terry Kem teaches in his Nature Awareness classes at LightSong, this energy residue can tell a tracker where the animal is headed, if it is male or female, if it is hungry, and what age it is. It is full of information about the animal because it is the animal. A part of its energy has been left behind. A left-brain thinker can’t even comprehend this concept, much less employ it.

Time and Manifestation in the Fourth Dimension

Other major characteristics of the right brain are the ability to comprehend the different dimensions. We are born into the third dimension, and Western cultures with left-brain dominance predominantly function in that reality. The fourth dimension offers us greater or more important than anyone else. This is the beginning of our understanding of oneness. The oneness stops being a thought or a concept and becomes a reality felt inside and incorporated into feelings, mental thought, and belief.

How we understand time in the fourth dimension determines how we can manifest and gain access to the deeper meanings and richer benefits of this often-unrealized world. Manifestation has been a hot topic for a couple of decades. Movies, books, workshops, and classes have been taught on how to manifest and gain desired objects, but many people feel discouraged with the length of time it takes to manifest their desires. The spirits told me years ago, back in the early nineties that time acts as a buffer in third-dimensional reality. It actually saves people from self-destructing or damaging others. If people actually manifested everything they thought about instantly, we would have bedlam on Earth because of the undisciplined minds of most.

However, the fourth dimension creates conditions for time that are substantially different from our ordinary reality. Like a dream, fourth-dimensional thought and feelings create reality almost immediately but without the confusion and destructiveness that might otherwise be present in our daily third-dimensional lives. However, the residues of our third-dimensional life often remain in the fourth dimension in the form of fears and doubts that inhibit the full realization that we seek. The progress to the fifth-dimensional reality will lead to the falling away of these fears and a more perfect union with the cosmos.

The Fifth Dimension: the Realm of the Unconditional

In the fifth dimension, there is no illusory limitation and anything is possible. The manifestation of our deepest desires occurs instantly with joy and love in that place where we have dismissed ourselves from artificial constraints of time and limitation. The right brain achieves full dominance in the fifth dimension and we are free and full of love. We are liberated and not restricted to scarcity paradigms that contribute to lower-frequency actions.

In this dimension, we live in the realm of the unconditional — unconditional love, unconditional possibility, and unconditional oneness with the universe. There is complete freedom from judgment; in fact, judgment isn’t even conceivable. We live in harmony and are free to express our true selves. Our true essence is at the helm of our thoughts, actions, and feelings. We can see and communicate with the nonphysical beings that surround us and interact in our lives — power animals, ascended masters and teachers, angels, faeries, and other stellar beings. There is no fear in this plane.

Many of us who practice metaphysics know of these states of being. We experience them regularly. However, existing in these elevated dimensions is usually not a full-time experience.

Often even explaining our mystical experiences forces us into left-brain structures and limited vocabularies, especially if we are speaking or writing in English, which is predominantly a militant language and has few words powerful enough to hold the energy of the mystical experience.

Creating Conditions of Receptivity in Our Third-Dimensional Lives

As we strive for ascension and seek to change our vibrations into higher qualities of purity, we must attend vigorously to creating the conditions of receptiveness by staying focused in our right brain. If we do so, we are constantly reinforced and supported with spiritual interaction and magic, and we are able to better comprehend our amazing existence.

Our challenge is the same as it has always been — to not judge ourselves and to not judge the extraordinary experiences we have while we are journeying or in meditation. Without judgment, we can connect to the feelings of appreciation that can cause elation. When we have these experiences and then try to express them through the filters and structure of left-brain rigidity and judgment, we fail to fully appreciate our experiences. The left brain cannot comprehend these experiences and it is not supposed to. That is not its function.

Ascension is a process that involves many factors. Stimulating and consciously activating the right brain is necessary to the process. We must trigger the right brain to counterbalance the lifetime of conditioning of deferring to the left brain. There are many activities that you can engage in for this process. Journeywork, interacting with nonphysical spirit beings, meditation, reacting to art and music, and daydreaming all contribute to the continual reconditioning of the mind.

I simply like to breathe with the intention of flooding my right brain with oxygen and energy, especially during my quiet times of the day. I envision my right brain turning on, lighting up, and taking a prominent position in my daily functions. It is amazing the feelings that rush through with this activity. Love, appreciation, and expansion flood my body and my fields of energy.

It is a simple and worthy exercise to do throughout the day.

The right brain is the source of imagination, and you will discover that it is receptive to creative and simulative exercises. We may have been born into a third-dimensional reality of limitation and scarcity, but it need not remain our imprisonment for life. The choice to break free from these artificial restraints is ours.

Right Brain Dreaming – 4th Dimension

Right Brain Dreaming – 4th Dimension by Jan Engels-Smith

Right Brain Dreaming

 

Dreaming is a state of awareness that is mainly right brain.  In a dream, we know that things are magical and spontaneous and don’t seem to follow the logic of cause and effect or the natural laws of three-dimension reality, such as gravity, speed and force.  Dreams can be representative of the instant manifestation qualities of right brain function.  To dream is to manifest and create in a different dimension.  Think it and it has the potential to appear.  Dreams are also complex and often involve subconscious or latent fears that lie in the murky waters of the conscious mind and, when given the opportunity, rise to the surface with sometimes haunting exposure in our dream state.

However, I would like to focus on the magical and creative sides of dreaming.  Dreams blend event to event and are often out of time-line order and don’t necessarily make sense when we try to explain them.  Often people will excuse the “craziness” of them by dismissing them as “only dreams.”  We expect them to be whimsical, nonsensical, mystical, magical and wild, but we should pay close attention to the possible meanings that they impart and to the visions that they create. They enter through our right brain and we need to ponder them beyond the simple analytical efforts of the left brain if we hope to discover their deeper meanings and messages.

Dreaming help us to understand that there are actual dimensions of reality where physical laws are not defined as we normally perceive them, or where such rules are suspended or non-existent.  Metaphysically, dream messages come from a different place—the fourth and fifth dimensions. Life, as we know it in everyday existence, takes place in the third dimension.  We are born into this dimension and few of us in Western society ever transcend its imprisonment.  Third dimension reality is a product of left-brain thinking. The third dimension is often referred to as the mental thought reality.  In this reality we have the ability to remember the past and project into the future. The present moment is hard to obtain.  Those that meditate know what I mean.  The present NOW is fleeting and only truly felt when the mind isn’t absorbed in its incessant chatter of what has happened, what is going to happen, what you thought about what happened, etc.  It goes on and on and the NOW disappears in a blur of rambling thoughts.  We remain locked in a cause/effect, time/space paradigm because the past is imprisoned in our subconscious mind.  This is an ego-based existence.  The ego is only found on the left side of the brain.  Again since we are a left-brain dominant culture, we are also an ego-driven culture.  We have rules, laws, boundaries, separation, and judgment!  The judgment is blatant and drives countries, families and societies into conflict.  Ego can cause greed, jealously, threat, unhappiness, depression, anger, violence and all the lower frequency feelings.  The heightened ego will eventually be the demise of people as it is based on the principle of scarcity, rather than abundance. The ego assumes that one must win at the expense of others.  It harms the body in a multitude of ways, ruins relationships, and diminishes the quality of life.

Shamanic values and new age ideas have offered a different way of being.  We have all heard of the concepts of unity and oneness, living in love, and focusing on our commonalities rather than our differences.  These ideas are actually fourth and fifth dimension realities.  In this realm, we become aware of how we are connected to each other and to the universe.

Malidoma Some

An Article About Malidoma Some by Jan Engels-Smith

Malidoma Some

 

There’s a great book by Malidoma Some’ called Of Water and the Spirit.

When Melidoma was four, he was kidnapped by French Jesuit missionaries The missionaries sequestered him into the monastery, raised him and literally beat the African culture out of him.  He was not allowed to speak the language, or practice any tribal activities… He was completely westernized into this French culture. When he was 20, he escaped and got back to his village. Malidoma experienced a very deep-rooted anger that took him a long time to repair. He was upset that his family didn’t rescue him. He aspired to be reunited with the people and live their traditional ways but the Elders disputed  “you can’t see anymore”. “How can you live this way with us? You are blind?” Malidoma said, what are you talking about I’m blind? They asked, Can you see what is occurring around you? Malidoma described his surroundings in a literal way as we would describe a setting in which we found ourselves.  According to the Elders this description was very inaccurate and very limited.  Malidoma finally convinced the Elders to accept him back into the culture and he began the process of re-initiation.  Malidoma was put on a vision quest. He had to sit in front of a tree, in the 120-degree sun and tell the Elders what the tree was doing. The Elders were sitting behind Malidoma as a group. We see trees as stationary. But the Africans in their “right sided dominate brains” see the trees as social beings, all over the place, communicating…

Malidoma was told to sit in front of a tree until he sees its motions and communication. Almost delirious with heat, exhaustion, and absence of water, Malidoma had an idea – I’m just going to fake it. They don’t really see anything. I’m just going to make it up. Malidoma began telling the Elders his made up imagery of what he saw. The Elders were disgusted called him a liar and threw rocks at him. The tree is not doing that. You liar, you liar.   He failed this initiation.  The ability to “see again” is a right brain function, which had been lost to Malidoma in his westernization.

I asked the spirits last summer, how much do we actually see? Can you give me a percentage? I thought it would be 20%. I don’t know why I thought it was that percentage, it was a guess that ran through my mind.  The spirits said you see less than 1% of what is actually around you!  I said, it’s like we’re blind and they said YES.  OMG!

Dreaming by Jan Engels-Smith

dreaming

 

We intuitively are aware of the disjointed and incongruous nature of our life within a civilization that struggles to define itself by attempting to justify what we know is inherently wrong and in conflict with our “better selves.” The reliance on the analytical left brain is limited by “facts” too meager to explain even the simplest questions of why we exist or what we can become. Some us seek to balance this logical and rational side of our intellect with the rich and underutilized right brain that employs a sensuous aesthetic that comprehends holistically and draws meaning from sources far more magical and mysterious than we can manage with our left brain alone.

One of the ways we access this creative and imaginative side of our brain is through our dreams.  When dreaming, we release our control of our thinking and some interior “autopilot” takes over and we move freely through arenas of thought that we could not access in our waking hours. However, this dream state can be achieved in a waking reverie if we are able to release the artificial bonds of our rational mind—not to become irrational but to access a non-rational state where we become cognizant of a truer reality. If we stand on one side of a wall, we might say that nothing exists on the other side because we cannot see it. In one sense, this is the way the left brain functions in its need for tangible proof.  But what if the proof of what exists on the other side of the wall is accessible to us but not with our normal sight?  If we think of the wall as the barrier imposed by our rational mind, then we might imagine the right brain as the window into the hidden world.

Dreaming help us to understand that there are actual dimensions of reality where physical laws are not defined as we normally perceive them, or where such rules are suspended or non-existent.  Metaphysically, dream messages are coming from a different place—the fourth and fifth dimensions. Life, as we know it in everyday existence, takes place in the third dimension.  We are born into this dimension and few of us in Western society ever transcend its imprisonment.  Third dimension reality is a product of left-brain thinking.  The third dimension is often referred to as the mental thought reality.  In this reality we have the ability to remember the past and project into the future.

The Different Sides of the Brain

The Different Sides of the Brain by Jan Engels-Smith

brain

 

I have been intrigued lately with understanding the different sides of the brain. Our society is what’s called a left brain dominant society. The left side of the brain is all about logic, rational thought, the ego is on the left side, the capacity to think of past, and future also resides there. In the Western culture we have the need to have a logical order to things. We like information given to us in a standard form, which is linear. How many of you have ever sat with an indigenous elder and listed to an indigenous elder talk? You know they do not speak about things in a linear fashion. In fact, it drives most westerners crazy. You think they are losing topic all the time because they speak in what is called a circular format.

We like to linearize everything. We also force things to have rational logical sense according to a previously set standard, usually by people who have come  before us. A typical standard incorporated is the Newtonian standard from Isaac Newton. Newton developed a mechanistic ideology where things are compartmentalized, taken apart, looked at in compartmentalized versions. Allopathic medicine is very much like this today.  An illness will usually set into motion a series of specialists each doctor specializing in one set of symptoms. They are each treating something in a very isolated way instead of the whole picture.

This mindset philosophy comes out of the Newtonian era. Our business and governments are set up this way. Most everything in our lives is set up this way. Our school districts are set up this way. We automatically fall into this acceptance of this structure…I’m going to be in English class, now math class, now science class…and everything is pulled apart.

The left side of the brain loves and operates from this theory. We actually test your intelligence according to how well you can take apart a sentence in English and know all the components. We’re constantly chopping things into little bits and reinforcing that part of the brain and saying that’s the correct way to live. Another form of intelligence is to come up with the RIGHT answer, even though Right is often objective for the time. The more you can do that the higher you rate on intelligence tests.  Again we live in a very left brain dominant culture.

Being in Your Right Brain

Being in Your Right Brain By Jan Engels-Smith

Being in Your Right Brain

 

The word “clairvoyant” is derived from Latin roots through French to English and literally translates as “clear sight.” Most understand the word as meaning intuitive, psychic, telepathic, second-sighted, perceptive, or farsighted. The first element of the word can also mean “light” as in “clair de lune”—moonlight. It’s a lovely word and perhaps appropriate to a discussion of the right hemisphere of the brain. Brain hemispheres are intriguing subjects for study and they can help us to understand how different cultures functioned, how some people can experience unusual perceptions from non-ordinary sources, and how each of us can develop our “clair” abilities although we exist in a Western culture dominated by left brain thinking. Clairvoyance– seeing- Clairaudience– hearing: Clairsentient – sensing- Claircognition– knowing Clair-Olfactory – smelling.

To better understand the right hemisphere, we might start by understanding modern industrial society’s obsessive dependence on left-brain thinking. The left side of the brain processes information sequentially and is considered the source of analytical thought. This part of our brain recognizes parts that make up a whole and, in processing verbal information, recognizes that one stimulus comes from another and verbal perception and generation depends on the awareness of a sequence in which sounds or stimuli occur. In other words, it looks for an anticipated organization that “makes sense” in the way that we have been trained to think. A left-brain dominant individual might have trouble “making sense” of right-brain thinking.

How then does right-brain thinking occur? The right brain hemisphere specializes in combining the parts to produce a whole.  Unlike the left, the right hemisphere organizes things simultaneously and perceives holistically.  It specializes in a method of thought that recognizes and constructs patterns and is most efficient at visual and spatial processing.  This is our source for processing non-verbal stimuli. Dreamers, artists, musicians, and visionaries are often right-brain dominant because, what left-brain thinkers see as “non-sense,” right-brain thinkers understand as an alternative way of “making sense.”

Modern Western societies, especially since the time of Isaac Newton and Rene Descartes, have developed a highly analytical and mechanistic approach to understanding the world and have sought a natural and rational explanation for existence that is highly dependent on observable and scientific phenomena that leaves little room for accepting the possibility of supernatural causality. Spirituality has a lesser status as such in left-brain dominant societies. Primitive (the term is used here to mean “first”) indigenous societies were far more developed in their ability to perceive with the right hemisphere of their brain and they understood the world intuitively and held a clear sense of the unity of all things.  Where Western culture identifies man as seeking dominance and as being one part of the environment in which he exists, indigenous cultures perceive all existence as a unified whole in a universe of interdependence and constancy.

So now we return to the opening paragraph of this essay and the reference to clairvoyance.  We often envision a clairvoyant as a psychic or fortuneteller or one able to see what is not naturally evidenced.  However, in the same way that we all possess analytical skills that differ in degree from one person to another, we all also possess the potential for clairvoyant vision and spiritual insight.  As one can develop one’s analytical skills through practice and mental exercise and thereby strengthen the functions of the left hemisphere of the brain, one can also cultivate the right hemisphere by deliberate attention to new realms of thought, such as visualization, shamanic journey and deep meditation.  These latter developments are more difficult than the former because we live in a society that places a higher value on left-brain thinking and fails to see the true value of the richer states of thought that create seemingly impossible accomplishments and open the society to new and better futures. One might say that the effective use of the analytical side of the brain permits us to succeed in the day-to-day life of Western society while the right hemisphere provides the opportunity to create a new world that is limited only by our imagination and willingness to form new paradigms of existence. As quantum theory has replaced Newtonian Mechanics as a new understanding of existence and mechanistic images have been supplanted by an extraordinary unified theory of oneness, we have been placed at the threshold of a new age where conflict and a sense of helplessness are displaced by unbounded potential and cosmic harmony. To be truly participatory, we must hone our “clair” abilities by attending to our right-brain hemisphere.  The difficulty in acquiring such second-“clair” powers is primarily a product of the indoctrination that we have allowed to dominate our culture, but the “clair” is accessible by everyone who chooses to remove the blinders of Western certitude and open one’s mind to infinitely greater possibilities.

The primary limitation of left-brain thinking is the failure to recognize that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.  The mechanistic paradigm that governs left-brain thinking sees the parts of a system as independent elements and assumes that the combination of the parts produces the whole. A living system paradigm, the source imagery of right brain thinking, understands the whole as the true nature of existence and the disassembly of the whole into imagined components actually causes the whole to disappear.  An analogy for understanding this distinction might be to mentally picture two images—a clock and a human being. Imagine taking the clock apart and arraying the parts on a table.  Your mind can effectively reconstruct the clock back into its original form and you can even understand this form from the parts that are in front of you. The cogs and wheels and dials, etc. have meaning as a clock even in their separation.  Now consider a human being and what we determine to be the essence of a human being.  Now mentally disassemble this human into its component parts—muscles, skin, organs, hair, etc. and mentally array the parts before you. We can recognize the parts but the sum of those parts do not represent or restore that which we understand as life. Emotional states, spiritual constructs, meaning and purpose, reverie and contemplation, etc. are the core components of life, not the aforementioned pieces of the body. The left hemisphere is very competent at understanding the parts of the body and can apply mechanistic thinking to providing shelter, medical attention, and social organization for people, but the right hemisphere offers expansive possibilities for growth, change, invention, and transitions inaccessible to the left hemisphere. One might say that the left brain allows you to survive while the right brain offers one the opportunity to thrive.  We all strive to survive but we desire to thrive.

Vibrational energies that imbue our auras are present in all people regardless of whether they are left brain or right brain dominant. The difference for individuals lies in their awareness of and ability to influence the higher dimensional energies. The beginning of the ascension process is to develop the right hemisphere of the brain, which will provide a portal into these dimensions, and to continue the refinement of this deeper source of thought until one can begin to alter oneself and the universe in which we live. The other dimensions, seeing or experiencing spirits, the feelings of oneness and non-separation are all experiences of the right brain. Every small ripple of change from our personal efforts ripples out into a cataclysmic alteration of the cosmos because we are at one with the universe. If we create again a right brain dominant culture, our possibilities are infinite.
