Balancing the Hemispheres of the Brain

Most of us relate to the world around us with habitual patterns of perception that are developed early in life. Some of us are more 'right brained' (creative) and others are more 'left brained' (intellectual). These aspects of perception are geographically located in areas of the brain that we get used to using through daily life, but over time, we may find difficulties arise because of our self limiting manners of perceiving.

For instance, if a situation should come up that requires a creative and spontaneous reaction from us, in order to resolve a problem of some kind, we might find difficulty in achieving a successful outcome if we are limited to relying solely on our intellect for the answer.
Conversely, if a situation arises that requires reason and logic, and we are used to approaching matters from a more creative and innovative mentality, we also may have problems coming to a satisfactory conclusion in the matter.

One of the things I have found through self observation, meditation, experience and much research into this subject is that there are methods and techniques we can employ to balance the hemispheres of the brain to ensure that the right and left sides are working together, as oppossed to against, each other.
It's much like muscle groups, which sometimes work against each other when a task or a movement we are performing is not coherent or 'co-ordinated' enough to be energy-efficient. This wastes energy and is more 'weakening' to the muscles than strengthening.

One (of many) techniques I have experimented with and explored, and have found very helpful in this endeavor, (the balancing of the hemispheres of the brain) is juggling. Yes, I said juggling.

The wonderful thing about juggling is that it forces you to be here and now, in this moment, focused and conscious. Also, the act of juggling encourages both sides of the brain to work together for the same result. It is very satisfying, in many areas.

Now, to begin is quite simple. You start with just one ball. In fact, it's probably better to use a pair of rolled-up socks, to begin with.( Then, when you drop it you don't have to go running all over the room to retrieve it.)

Simply hold the 'ball' in one hand, palm up about chest height, elbows down, and toss the ball from one hand and catch it with the other. Watch it with your eyes, don't watch your hands, as you throw and catch it.

Soon, you will be able to throw and catch it, back and forth, with no problem whatsoever.
Then, you do the same thing with two balls, if you wish to. But really, for the purposes of balancing the brain, you don't even need to progress to two balls at all!

Once you can throw and catch one ball, continuously, from hand to hand, teach yourself to do it while sitting in a chair and with your eyes closed.

It may sound difficult, but with a little practice, you will be amazed at how easy it really is!

And, you will be balancing the hemisperes of your brain at the same time.
