To further understand just how effective Hemispheric Integration™ can be, let’s take a look at the structures of belief. Consider this image:
This illustration shows the method how most people, consciously or unconsciously, live their lives from their belief systems: their life is an natural growth of their underlying thoughts.
Our thoughts help shape how we perceive our reality. And some of those thoughts are deeply imbedded in our body. So for some, it is easy to understand how their thoughts about something actually shapes their experience of that thing, even if they don’t put it into those words.
For some people, this understanding doesn’t seem to make sense. They ask themselves, “But I think that I think a certain way about something, so why do I keep getting something I don’t want?” The answer is exactly as the illustration shows: it lies in the deep roots of their thinking.
Before the brain ‘thinks’ about something, nearly all of the stimuli funnels through one of two small parts of the body called the amygdalae. The amygdalae process the stimuli and essentially assigns an emotional component, or a relationship evaluation, to each stimuli. Then, one or both of the organs, sends the information along with the stimuli to various centers of the brain where it is then ‘thought’ about.
Now this is a great system when these stimuli, the person’s deep-rooted beliefs, and the emotional component match-up with what the person wants to experience. But when any of these don’t, when they are not congruent, that’s where people get stuck.
For example, some people have phobias. Some fear snakes, or flying in an airplane, or riding a motorcycle. But the simple fact that everyone does not have the same exact fear means that a person’s phobia is usually a learned coping behavior. What is it a coping behavior for? That answer is exactly what the Hemispheric Integration™ process reveals.
And once someone knows what the phobia was a coping behavior for, they are able to see the stimuli more clearly and are then usually able to easily release it as a trigger for the behaviors they no longer want to have.
Certainly there are some issues that might take some time to heal, but nearly all of them can be quickly discovered with the processes in one or two sessions. From there, it’s a matter of doing other processes and to get the results the the person wants to have in their life.
