For example, a person who is "left-brained" is often said to be more logical, analytical and objective, while a person who is "right-brained" is said to be more intuitive, thoughtful and subjective.

The Right Brain

According to the left-brain, right-brain dominance theory, the right side of the brain is best at expressive and creative tasks. Some of the abilities that are popularly associated with the right side of the brain include:

Recognizing faces

Expressing emotions


Reading emotions





The Left Brain

The left-side of the brain is considered to be adept at tasks that involve logic, language and analytical thinking. The left-brain is often described as being better at:



Critical thinking



I obtained this info from here

This would mean a "left-brain thinker" would have trouble with eg Abraham processes. 

With this information is it better to approach the Vibrational-processes with a "don't think just do it" mindset?

Thank you

@Satori - interesting question - I have been thinking that some spiritual styles suit some and not others but had been thinking more along the lines of introvert/extrovert. I will ponder your question and in the meantime await the views of the IQ community! Love the new Shamrock logo.

@Satori - "don't think just do it" ... good advice indeed :) Some people do seem to get themselves stuck in "paralysis by analysis". Just do it consistently, get the all good stuff flowing into your life, and afterwards when you get bored of the good life ...then you can analyze it all to death. Shoot first, ask questions later :)

(15 Jul '12, 18:18) Stingray

@Satori, @Stingray, totally agree...shoot first, ask questions later:)

(16 Jul '12, 04:34) Xoomaville

@Stingray, wouldn't you agree we should "aim first"? Or perhaps load the gun? Maybe buy it first, or consider why would to buy one? Ah, we're back again to questions. But you don't really go buy a gun, shoot, and then start questioning why did you even buy it in the first place, right? ;-)

I mean, analysis and action. They're like best pals. You act on your analysis, and analyze your action, then act on that analysis, only to analyze that other action etc."knowledge is power only if acted upon"

(16 Jul '12, 05:21) CalonLan

@CalonLan - I think you've just demonstrated the idea of "over analyzing" quite well :) Clearly you have a belief system where physical action is absolutely necessary to you achieving what you want. So that will be your reality and you will have to comply with those beliefs to make anything happen. It isn't my reality. Plenty of stuff flows into my life "in between the cracks" of just ordinary living...because that's what I believe :)

(16 Jul '12, 06:19) Stingray

@Stingray, I would love to not work out and still grow into a greatly defined muscular body. How do I achieve it with just my beliefs without an action? :-)

(16 Jul '12, 06:42) CalonLan

@CalonLan - Until just recently, I had been doing Static Contraction Training for years. 30 seconds of physical action per month to get bulging muscles and impressive strength. Don't know about you but I can live with 30 seconds :) Does that answer your question? :)

(16 Jul '12, 06:51) Stingray

@Stingray, interesting. I shall look into that. Thanks ;)

(16 Jul '12, 06:57) CalonLan

@Stingray- (in relation to Static Contraction Training)- WTF?! Are you serious?! Would you mind explaining about this some more when you get the time for it?

(16 Jul '12, 08:27) Nikulas

@Nikulas - Yeah, really. I was inspired to it back in the early 2000's because I didn't like long workouts. Used it for a few years in the gym before buying an SCT machine. Works as advertised, if your beliefs are aligned that way. In the past year, after some more inspiration, I moved over to Kettlebells simply because an SCT machine is hardly portable (they're huge!) and I need some portability right now. But I'm enjoying KBs so much these days that will probably stick with them.

(16 Jul '12, 09:02) Stingray

I've heard of this.I think it's called isometrics or similar to in weight-training and is certainly effective.

Also check out HIT (high-intensity training made popular by mike mentzer

And abbreviated work-outs by Stuart McRobert  for the drug free typical person

Both contain short effective workout routines and methods which I have used for about 10 years now with good results

The "Left Brain / Right Brain" concept is probably more accurately stated these days as "Mind-based / Heart-based".

See Are we killing the Ego as we release resistance? for more background information.

So as human beings, we are running two systems of perception simultaneously. We run the "Mind" system by thinking, we run the "Heart" system by feeling.

They are two very different systems that serve different purposes.

The "Mind" system creates the illusion of physical reality. Physical reality is just a collection of vibrational frequencies which our physical senses are tuned to interpret - there is nothing more "physical" about it than that :)

The "Heart" system is our connection to our broader perspectives. It is the connection we have to the Infinite / Divine / Source / God, whatever you want to call it.

Each system plays it own role and trying to force one system to do what it was not designed to do can confuse you.

Trying to "think" your way to "God" using the Mind is like trying to eat dinner off your plate using a mechanical digger. It's not going to be a satisfying experience :)

Not the way to eat dinner

There are many ways to access the "Heart" system. Mystics, for centuries, have been coming up with Heart-access systems in their quest to understand and tune into our non-physical realities.

But there are 3 extremely simple ways to do it that can get anyone there very quickly. Any one of them will get you "Heart-centered" in moments.

  • Do or think something that makes you "feel good", not just calm...Good...something that puts a smile on your face
  • Get into the present moment...the Now.
  • Breathe in a slow, steady, deliberate fashion like is done during meditation

Once you are perceiving from that "Heart center", ideas and insights will flow to you that you didn't have access to from the "Mind center". It really is a completely different system of perception within us.

For that reason, there are always going to be misunderstandings between those who choose to perceive reality through "Mind", for example; a mainstream hardcore scientist, and those who choose to perceive reality through "Heart", for example; an intuitive spiritual mystic.

So, to answer your question, do our "thinking minds" play any part in Vibrational-Raising processes or are they just a hindrance?

In my view, I would say that unless you understand clearly that we are dual in nature as humans and that your "thinking mind" is not designed to perceive in a "higher" fashion then, yes, it is going to be a hindrance, not least because you won't have any idea what those "heart-centered" folks are talking about :)

@Stingray - I think you have answered my recent question to The Traveller about the two ways of getting into the heart centre - thinking positively (Abraham) or not thinking (Eckhart Tolle) - I was wondering which was best. Both just different ways - that insight has made my day - thank you.

(16 Jul '12, 03:04) Catherine

@Stingray, I find myself shuffling between the three although my bottom-line is to 'feel good' (I am really taken by this 'feeling good' concept, as I don't see any value in why anyone would want to do/seek anything BUT to feel good:), I think most will get bored with one way or find it difficult to sustain one, what is your experience? Does it have to be a disciplined routine? -thanks

(16 Jul '12, 04:44) Xoomaville

@Xoomaville - I'm not a fan of discipline because it implies contradiction...a contradiction between action and habitual (or not) vibration. My "trick" is to use different methods for feeling good when necessary - two in particular. Most of the time my vibrational work involves getting into the Vortex using the Focus Blocks approach (ME-2), using my automated spreadsheet, and during those times when I get bored of that, I switch to Manifesting Box (ME-1) and become the...

(16 Jul '12, 04:55) Stingray

@Xoomaville - ..visionary of my life instead for a while. I've been doing it this way for some years now and it seems that either one or the other always keeps me interested. I can't say if that would work for everyone, or whether it's just the way my particular mind works. If you look at young children, they don't use discipline to feel good, it's just natural. So I guess the only forced action ("discipline") that is required is that initial re-remembering of our natural state of fun.

(16 Jul '12, 05:03) Stingray

@Catherine - You're welcome :)

(16 Jul '12, 05:04) Stingray

@Stingray, thanks, that makes sense:)

(16 Jul '12, 05:19) Xoomaville

@Stingray-You've really made things clear for me here Stingray, this has answered my question, thank you:)

(16 Jul '12, 10:01) Satori

@Catherine-Thanks for the nice compliment:) Glad you found this answer useful also, thanks:)

(16 Jul '12, 10:02) Satori

@Satori - Glad to help. You are welcome :)

(16 Jul '12, 10:29) Stingray

@Xoomaville, you are rocking the whole intentional manifesting thing right outta the park. So I say, if it feels good to you, it must be good! You just can't argue with results. :)

(16 Jul '12, 13:33) Grace

@Anybody, does being left-handed have any bearing on this subject? It's been implied all my life that being a lefty is one of the reasons I'm so weird. :)

(16 Jul '12, 13:33) Grace

@Grace-I doubt it Grace unless of course you would choose to BELIEVE that it does:)
