The hippocampus on the right side dominates non-verbal thought (like thinking
in colors or musical tones, or writing poetry that puts words together by how they feel rather than what they mean).
Thinking without words can only happen when the 'internal' dialog stops. Stopping the internal dialog is one of
the first things that has to happen before meditation can begin to bear fruit. Stimulating the hippocampus on the
right can help to do this, but the resulting states of consciousness will gain in depth if they're accompanied
by meditation practice. Any non-verbal 'tasking' for the mind can be used in conjunction with the hippocampal signal.
Visualizations, guided imaginations, 'toning', mindfulness exercises of any kind, gazing techniques or any other
technique that works without words.
The same principle applies to the left hemisphere, prayer, and the amygdala
If you were to pursue intelligence enhancements, and used frontal lobe sessions,
how would you know if your intelligence were enhanced without applying it to something? You might find that you
were having ideas that were more complex than before, or that you seem to see things a 'level deeper' than before.
Or you might only notice enhancemnts in your intelligence when you applied it. The same applies to your capicity
for awareness, love, or creativity.
One of the rules that governs the brain is the 'principle of use-dependency'.
This is where having a faculty or skill depends on using it. "Use it or lose it".
Whatever your Shakti sesisons bring up for you, you need to apply them to retain
them. Doing this will mean paying attention. Living at a higher level, or only having more such moments, needs
wanting them to be there. Shakti
is a powerful tool for this, but there are limits to what any spiritual technology can do without your participation.
This can mean doing a spiritual practice, or it can mean just paying attention
to the effects of your sessions.
