The right brain is also known as the unconscious mind, and it is dominant in regards to all aspects of emotional processing. It controls the left side of the body and is good at manipulating and constructing complex shapes, puzzles, and block designs. It also controls the perception of the visual, spatial, geometric relationships, such as depths, distance, location, movement, and motion and can see the “big picture” – it can read between the lines and infer what something may be or may mean based on only a few features – in consequence of the ability of filling in the blanks and deduce or determine what something may be or may mean, even with scanty information, the right brain is considered the more intuitive half of the cerebrum. In addition, it is responsible for non-linguistic forms of communicating, such as: facial expression, body language, etc.
In a communication, the left brain understands what is said, the right brain understands the way the message was given: tone, manner, feelings. Two different messages may be perceived and how you react will depend on which half of your brain prevails. That’s why it is important to be aware of what is going on inside yourself and acknowledge the emotions and feelings as they arise.
We are capable of becoming fully aware of what is occurring in the right brain, although it is non-linguistic and nonconscious. If we choose to, we can also become consciously aware of all of them as they occur. However, it is very difficult to put what the right brain experiences into words, and it is also not always necessary or useful. Instead of thinking, sometimes we just need to feel, experience, and observe without talking about it – it is called mindfulness.
