The mental prowess of individuals depends on how their use the brain. If you try to observe children, you will discover that they are usually using their right brain hemisphere because they display spontaneity, imagination, great creativity, enthusiasm, and open mindedness. As an individual grows older, they also grow socially, culturally, and sometimes racial influences also hold back such natural traits.
If you want to achieve awareness at a much higher level, you must learn to be ambidextrous; that is, you need to use both hemispheres of your brain. The first thing that you need to do is to work on the leaning activities that focus in the right brain hemisphere like analogies, metaphor, patterning, visuals, calculation, and role playing. In order to develop the ambidextrous mind, you can get involved in meditation and reflective thinking.
Mind mapping is one way to achieve an ambidextrous mind. Through mind mapping, you can diffuse your thoughts, thereby streaming thought lines and associations. You can associate effectively if you can find the links to ideas and logic. If you try to explore the ideas and logic, it will eventually lead to creativity, insight, and imagination.
It you want to strengthen your perception clarity, dissemination, and vividness, try to make use of colors, symbols, and pictures in your mind maps. By using mind mapping, you can employ your brain’s subtle aspects.
Start learning about mind maps now; mind mapping is your key to achieving an ambidextrous mind. Whole-brain thinking is difficult to achieve so you will need to work very hard. Good luck.
