Achieving an Ambidextrous Mindset

Written by C. Bailey-Lloyd/LadyCamelot

History lends us an ideal of ambidexterity: Leonardo da Vinci, Harry Truman and James Garfield were all known to be physically ambidextrous, but to what does that translate? In modern times, ambidexterity isn't a hot topic, but in fact, we are all - to a degree - ambidextrous.

When we multi-task, juggle home and work, hold a phone conference and take notes simultaneously -- we are incorporating an ambidextrous mindset. No, perhaps we don't all use both hands to achieve these tasks, but we are using both brain hemispheres to accomplish our deadlines and goals.

Some of us may have heard that we're 'right-brained' or maybe we lean more towardrepparttar 'left-brain.' Funny as these terms may seem, they are inherently one inrepparttar 139528 same. Though we may possess and exhibit more qualities from one side ofrepparttar 139529 brain opposed torepparttar 139530 other, we are still integrating both hemispheres in daily applications.

Right-brain people are said to think holistically, subjectively and may possess heightened intuition. Left-brain people are more logical, analytical and tend to possess better rational skills. But what really setsrepparttar 139531 two apart? And why is it that some individuals are more adept at some thought patterns than others?

Relevent qualites of 'right-brained' persons may include an expansive imagination, artistic abilities, higher inclination toward risks, and possession of philosophical qualities. Whereas 'left-brained' individuals are more inclined toward safety first, are practical, have a sense of order, and possess good comprehension skills.

Ironically, as children, human beings tend to innately migrate towardrepparttar 139532 right-brain mode. Young kids are highly imaginative, trusting, and create limitless environments withrepparttar 139533 conceptual power of their minds. It is interesting to watch a child at play. In their innocense, and subjective thinking, they illuminaterepparttar 139534 spaces that surround them. There are no emotional battles in childrens' minds. Therefore, we can conclude that right-brained individuals are more accepting toward various cultures, races, creeds, etc., simply because right-brained persons, like children, are geared toward open-mindedness.

A nearly-perfect example of an ambidextrous mindset:

It is throughrepparttar 139535 analytical minds like that of Leonardo da Vinci, (who was ambidextrous) who obviously achieved a harmonious balance of ambidexterity, not only physically, but in mind as well. Leonarda da Vinci is most reknowned for his famous paintings of The Last Supper andrepparttar 139536 Mona Lisa. While his right-brain permitted him to express his exquisite talents inrepparttar 139537 arts, his left-brain mathematically and analytically went to work in his revolutionary concepts and inventions -- likerepparttar 139538 first robot, submarine and evenrepparttar 139539 first mechanical calculator.

But from where did his visionary inspirations derive? Of course,repparttar 139540 right brain. In my opinion, and by scholars throughoutrepparttar 139541 world, da Vinci was by farrepparttar 139542 greatest genius in human history. His incredible integration of right and left brain hemispheres was an intellectual milestone inrepparttar 139543 history of humankind.

While we may not be Leonarda da Vinci, we do possess traits that may help us to achieve our daily routines, and overall lifestyles. The left hemisphere of our brains control our abilities to analyze and sum parts that are necessary for specific projects, while our right hemisphere amplifies our creative side, and keeps open positive expectations.

The 'experts' have tried to evaluate me as a sufferer of this but found no such evidence or behavior. The same was true for all other mental or medical conditions, so they think 'witch' covers my condition in life; because I refuse to participate inrepparttar materially managed environment any more. We will not explorerepparttar 139496 horrors ofrepparttar 139497 current forms of Inquisition in great detail in this book as it relates to me. That would definitely be too serious and intense, as I would explain society's role in tortures such as I witness all around me every day. I have been thwarted in devious gambits by those who have something even worse thanrepparttar 139498 strait-jacket as we have seen Drs Breggin and Cohen describe in 'Science'. They call it (appropriately) 'pharmacological lobotomies'. ECT is even more disgusting and joins Ritalin in a campaign which social forces are developing in this control paradigm. It seems relevant to point out enough ofrepparttar 139499 matter of my experience so that you will know you are getting it pretty close to what they say when they userepparttar 139500 phrase 'the horse’s mouth'.

Evenrepparttar 139501 pharmacological and psychiatric conglomerate acknowledgesrepparttar 139502 physical elements of depression. Some are cluing in to nutrition and massage or simple caring. The effects of education and alienation are massive, but bad parenting andrepparttar 139503 lack of enabling nutritive support in early life establish character and behavior traits that stubbornly resist real therapeutic methods. These obsessions often are far too time-consuming for high-paid 'professionals' to offer assistance - so we just drug and deceive! This medical model as some call it makes a great deal of money and keepsrepparttar 139504 public at large thinking something humane is going on inrepparttar 139505 life ofrepparttar 139506 care-givers and victims of a society without true spiritual awareness and far too little compassion. The buzz words and catchy phrases like ‘informed consent’ are not anything more than deceit, as they still give lobotomies. In one case they did it without informingrepparttar 139507 person who just died in 2005.

Francis Mark Mondimore writes a book called 'Depression, The Mood Disease' updated in 1993 by Johns Hopkins University that presentsrepparttar 139508 lies of this machine that Ivan Illich (in 'Limits To Medicine') identified as ‘mechanistic and over-professionalized' inrepparttar 139509 mid 70s.Here isrepparttar 139510 overstatement ofrepparttar 139511 century from its inside flap:

"The revised 'Depression,repparttar 139512 Mood Disease' tells readers exactly what they need to know aboutrepparttar 139513 causes, symptoms, and treatment of depression: *How antidepressant drugs were discovered, how they work, and with what side effects. {I'm biting my tongue!} *What Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and panic attacks are, and how they are treated. *How electro-convulsive therapy has changed forrepparttar 139514 better--and why it now works for up to 90% of those treated. {And allrepparttar 139515 professions involved in continuing to provide this fearsome horror that is necessary to repeat as it continues frying brain cells. Now randomly due to a drug cocktail, so that people's libido and zest is burned out too.} *Howrepparttar 139516 special problems of depression in children and older persons are handled. *How to deal with a depressed friend or family member. *How such disorders as hormonal imbalance and even lead poisoning can 'mimic'repparttar 139517 symptoms of depression. *Why depression is sometimes misdiagnosed as 'PMS', drug abuse, or Alzheimer's disease..."

The future holds promises and terrors galore inrepparttar 139518 application of 'easy' answers like drugs developed for specific genetic make-ups and nanites to monitor and deliver targeted drugs or shocks torepparttar 139519 system in order to make us behave as we should. The ever-increasing 'big brother' that allowsrepparttar 139520 growth industries associated withrepparttar 139521 management of people will lead to full employment if we allow it to continue downrepparttar 139522 current path. There will only be one benefit asrepparttar 139523 unemployable grow in number andrepparttar 139524 employment roles show full employment. The statistics will showrepparttar 139525 economy is productive and there is little unemployment or reason to worry about an economic depression. That isrepparttar 139526 end ofrepparttar 139527 excerpt from my encyclopedia. I will be including some other more recent writings as we proceed.

I had returned fromrepparttar 139528 Caribbean and a failed business experience in Mexico and Belize inrepparttar 139529 month of March 1998. My last wife and I had purchased a yacht, which we hoped to be able to build a party boat/tourist business around. My wife had namedrepparttar 139530 boat 'Champagne Dreams' afterrepparttar 139531 motto of Robin Leach's show 'The Rich andrepparttar 139532 Famous'. It was her idea that we put a Jacuzzi onrepparttar 139533 front deck, of this 47 foot fiberglass yacht that we purchased in Fort Lauderdale, and our partner (Captain Crunch) Jerry had taken with me to Cancun. His nickname had not been established until we were leaving Key West. He destroyedrepparttar 139534 fueling station ofrepparttar 139535 marina while hitting three other boats. We were still married though it was never a real marriage as most people think of it. The relationship was already complicated with another man named David.
