This may seem unrelated at first, but bear with me.
I have begun seizuring in the last year and when I went to see my therapist to talk about it she suggested that I try this simple exercise. It is designed to cross the bridge between the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
I’m a big fan of Chinese philosophy so it relates very strongly to Yin and Yang. Yin is the feminine, soft, subtle side… your imagination and intuition… in the right brain. Your male self is more your logic your rule set your dominant side, in most people – left brain.
I am finding that after practicing this simple technique for a month that I feel more integrated, if that makes any sense. Simply trace the figure of Infinity, an 8 on its side, in front of your eyes going out into your peripheral vision and tracing the movement of your hand with your eyes, while trying not to move your head. What this does is force your left brain to communicate directly with your right brain, and vice versa. I have been told that musicians that practice this before going on, actually play better.
On the topic of dysphoria I wonder if it might be a useful tool to have in your arsenal.
Cheers, Stephanie xo
