Visualization — Right Brain, Left Brain and In Between

Visualization — Right Brain, Left Brain and In Between

Objective: To understand more of the science behind visualization

Our brains are quite complex and like many complex systems they divide up functions into specific areas. When we think using words, we engage the left brain. This is where analysis, strategy, planning and our concepts of reality reside typically. Visualization, on the other hand, makes more use of the right brain. When we exercise more of the right brain we tap into more of our potential, more of our creativity, intuition and direct perception of reality. Visualization helps us to use more of our right brain and integrate its functioning into the left brain functions. The result is we use more of our potential and create greater success with greater ease.
