Butterfly: A composite illustration of both hemispheres

Think of your brain as if it were a beautiful butterfly, and the spread open wings are like the two hemispheres. In the various stages of transformation during metamorphosis, a butterfly emerges after months of physically changing from a caterpillar. In many ways, the chrysalis cocoon can represent the being state, or feminine right hemisphere. The butterfly transformation process requires the masculine doing left hemisphere in order to complete its gestation cycle and finally emerge as a new creation.

Butterflies often represent transformation of the soul. That process figuratively takes you from that long inner chrysalis stage, where waiting and complete changes must take place, before you can emerge and move forward into action. Although the cocoon stage may progress so slowly that it can seem as if little to no change is taking place, that is not so.

All transformation requires time, patience and a lot of energy, just as it is with the butterfly. When you begin your own transformation process by using these exercises and applying these principles to your life, it can be slow, and sometimes seem as if you aren’t accomplishing anything at all. Don’t let that discourage you. Keep going! If you do not give up, eventually you too will emerge like the beautiful butterfly and be able to set forth into the purpose for which you were created.

I drank that wine of which the soul is its vessel.
Its ecstasy has stolen my intellect away.
A light came and kindled a flame
in the depth of my soul.
A light so radiant that
the sun orbits around it
like a butterfly.
– Rumi

The Brain's Hemispheres

BODY | The brain (cerebrum) is formed by two cerebral hemispheres separated by a fissure groove. The brain is divided into left and right cerebral hemispheres. Each of these hemispheres has an outer layer of grey matter and a neural tissue cortex, that is supported by an inner layer of white matter. Within the fissure/groove linking the hemispheres lies the corpus callosum, a miraculous four inch long bundle of 200–300 million axonal projections (nerve fibers) that transfer information throughout the body.


Jungian Archetypes

MIND | Jungian archetypes are defined as universal, archaic symbols and images that derive from the collective unconscious, as proposed by Dr. Carl Jung. They are the psychic counterpart of instinct. They are an innate unspecific knowledge, derived from the sum total of human history, which prefigures and directs conscious behavior. Archetypes seek actualization within the context of an individual's environment and determine the degree of individuation. Archetypes are built into our personal unconsciousness complexes as functional units on a personal level.


Hemisphere Balancing

SPIRIT | Our world is our reflective mirror of either balanced or imbalanced archetypal energies. These imbalances are often created by attempts to cope inappropriately; by making poor choices in relationships and life experiences. To understand why, it helps to look at the balance of body/mind/spirit via your inner masculine and/or inner feminine sides. Gaining insight and knowledge is the key to mastering these two very different facets of your persona.


Below is an infographic and extensive listing of the differences between the many unique, yet subtle, differences between the brain’s hemispheres.

"I am what I am." Identifies with "I am". I become separate. I become a single, solid individual, separate from the energy flow around me. It is my ego (I.D.) that identifies my individuality. Key Phrase “I am that I am.” Identifies with a whole, perfect energy being. I feel the conscious connection to everything (the THAT) around and within me. It is all within me.
Up-Flow - Vortex of energy operates in a safe-zone of structured movement and action offering the individual safety in structure. Direction Down-Flow - The right hemisphere operates in a safe-zone of fluid movement and non-action, offering the individual safety in calm peacefulness and creative inspiration.
