What are right brain abilities, and who needs to develop them? First, right brain abilities are intuition, creativity, and the ability to see the big picture, perceive and understand laws of nature and how they work in creating our life experiences. These abilities are potential within all of us, but they lie dormant unless we develop them. Very few people are capable of accessing their right brain abilities.
So, who needs them? We all do. They make it possible for us to live much healthier, happier, more successful and fulfilling lives. Our educational system develops our intellect or left brain abilities, such as reason and logic, linear thinking, the ability to compare and analyze which helps us to function in the material world. However, the intellect is limited, and is incapable of bringing us many of the things that most of us find desirable in our lives.
In the natural growth process, which Abraham Maslow explains in his hierarchy of growth chart, we develop our left brain abilities first, because they are crucial to our survival. But once we are capable of functioning well in the material world, we discover that there is much more to life that we can enjoy if we are willing to explore and develop our right brain abilities.
It doesn’t matter how smart or how wealthy a person may be, there is still more to discover. Being smart and wealthy is great, but experiencing optimal health, deep peace, love and happiness is even more rewarding and fulfilling. Developing our right brain abilities allows us to discover the spiritual essence of who we are, and the power we have deep within ourselves to create the kind of life we want to live and live it to the fullest.
When we have only left brain abilities, regardless of what we achieve, it is the hard way to go. Unlimited Futures provides a process for developing one’s right brain abilities which makes all areas of life so much easier and more fulfilling. My book Unlimited Futures: How to Understand the Life You Have and Create the Life You Want, gives you a great introduction to a whole new world that you can create for yourself.
