I have already posted an article on the specialization of the hemispheres of the brain. How to activate the subdominant hemisphere of your brain? (First of all, find out which hemisphere dominates you)
There are several simple ways to develop the capacities of the cerebral hemispheres. The simplest of them is to do more activity, associated with the specialization of the hemisphere. For example, for the development of logic you need to solve mathematical problems, crosswords, and for the development of imagination read a fiction book or visit an art gallery, etc.
The next way is to maximize the use of the side of body controlled by the hemisphere. In order to develop the right hemisphere, work the left side of the body, and vice versa. For example, you can draw, hop on one foot, juggle with one hand.
In reality the left hemisphere dominates the majority of modern people. The system of education in our culture is focused on people with dominant left hemisphere. Unfortunately, the majority of people ignore the countless latent possibilities of the right half of the brain. Until now, there is still a great underestimation of the importance of intuition and intuitive knowledge.
Although children initially are born with dominant right hemisphere, at the age of two the most important functions pass to the left hemisphere which has to do with the developing speaking and thinking skills.
So, how to develop your right hemisphere and to reveal its hidden capacities? Except for the classical way of involving your brain into creative activities (poetry writing, painting, singing, dancing, etc.), there are special methods of stimulating the intuitive power of the brain. They are based on an idea of the human capacity for guided imagery, which can be developed with the help of private and tranquil environment, music for relaxation, absence of distracting noise.
Entering into a relaxed state, you can draw mental images which reflect your positive intention or the state, which you expect to achieve. A session of this kind may last from several minutes to an hour. The result is the activation of the right hemisphere which sometimes leads to the intuitive finding of answers to certain questions, relating to seemingly intractable situations.
Be patient, tune in a creative way, believe in your capabilities, and the result will not take long.
