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:
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:

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?
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 :)
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.
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 :)
