RBE-Part 4-Four Special Functions of the Right Brain

Updated: Apr 20, 2021

The right brain has four special functions that the left brain does not have. These are:

  1. Resonance & Sympathy Function

  2. Image Visualization Function

  3. High-Speed Mass Memory Function

  4. High-Speed Automatic Processing Function

Resonance Function

There are an infinite number of frequencies among the universe. And these frequencies are passing through our bodies every moment. Some of these can be experienced by humans consciously, others subconsciously. Our subconscious mind receives information through our skin or the right brain five senses. At the Alpha Wave State of mind, these vibrations entering our bodies through our skin and the right brain’s five senses, can be received and sent as images.

Following are the different types of brain waves-

  1. The Beta wave(Awake state), 14-30 hertz cycles.

  2. The Alpha wave(Relaxed state), 8-13 hertz cycles.

  3. The Theta wave(Falling into sleep or waking up), 4-7 hertz cycles.

  4. The Delta wave(Deep sleep state), .5-3.5 hertz cycles.

Information processed with beta wave frequency goes to the left brain, and information processed with alpha wave frequency goes to the right brain.The skin is a primary receptor of frequencies. This function of receiving information through the skin is called the resonance function and it’s the basic function of the right brain.

Everything around us transmits a wave vibration. When we become aware of something, our awareness starts resonating with the wave motion that this thing transmits. While our left brain consciousness does not recognise it, our subconscious senses it keenly and cognizes it as an image.

Visualization Function

The right brain, as noted, functions to resonate with the waves emanating from all things and then to visualize the images of these things. We are constantly surrounded by radio waves of different frequencies. When we set the channel on a radio or a TV set, it resonates with the frequency of a desired wave and an energy transfer occurs. As a result, we can hear sounds and see visions. When this occurs in humans, it it called telepathy or voice of the soul.

Hence, children can see visions. When the instructor visualizes an image of green on her forehead and she consciously visualizes that the image flies to the children’s foreheads, they receive the image of green on their foreheads just the way the instructor visualized. When the imaging capability is developed, children can hear the sound normally inaudible and see images normally invisible.

The October 22, 1996 issue of The New York Times ran an article on Judge Tony Cothren of Jefferson County in Alabama. According to this article, he had suffered from glaucoma since birth. He totally lost his eyesight when he was eight. In his court when a witness does not put his hand down after taking an oath, Judge Cothren will surprise everyone there by saying,"You may put your hand down now.” He says-"Although I’m blind, I can see the image”. Physiologically, human beings have two senses of sight. There is the right brain sensory circuit with which invisible things can be seen. Small children use their right brain senses naturally since their right brain is still dominant.

After the winter vacation, Mrs. T was talking to her 4 yr old child A. getting ready for class at the Shichida Child Academy. “We haven’t attended the class for a while. You must be excited to see your friends like B & C.”, she said. The girl replied-"Mommy, C is not coming. But another kid is coming."

The following day, before the class started, the teacher announced that a new child was joining., and C was absent. This is how small children use their right brain senses naturally.

In addition to the visual images, there are auditory, taste, olfactory and tactile images. Children can use these five sensory images for the right brain and can combine the mental images. They can learn complex muscle movements without difficulty using sensory thinking.

High Speed Mass Memory Function

While we have two types of memories, left brain and right memory; people ordinarily use only the left brain memory. The primary function of the right brain memory is “Photographic memory” by which one can photographically memorize things seen only once. It is said that prominent music conductors such as Hiroyuki Iwaki, Artur Rubinstein and Arturo Toscanini can fully memorize musical scores after they see them once. When conducting, they said they only needed to turn pages in their minds. Speed reading is an ability in which this “photographic memory” is further developed. N.H(9 yrs old) in Nagano Prefecture can read a book in less than 5 minutes. She said-”Looking at a book once, I can copy it in my head. Later, I only need to turn over the pages of the book slowly.”

Once this ability is developed, learning becomes very easy. Even mentally retarded children or children with poor school performance can become highly intelligent if this function is activated through right brain training.

“Image Training” is the process of visualizing oneself achieve a particular task. It could be anything-from hitting a goal in a match to speaking confidently on stage to passing an entrance examination. Many famous athletes use this method to achieve their goals. To do this, ask your child to visualize clearly the goal they wish to achieve-every minute detail of the scene should be in front of their eyes. While visualizing, they should feel the happiness of achieving the goal. This has proved to be a very successful method.

High Speed Automatic Processing Function

Not only can the right brain memorize information, it can also control the information spontaneously. It is due to this ability that children can easily master any language. Children below the age of three are called linguistic geniuses. A child brought up in a multilingual household will speak all the languages fluently. Children do not learn a language just by memory like an adult, but make use of their computer-like processing ability. By the age of 6, a language barrier is formed between the subconscious mind and revealed consciousness. Once in place, this barrier makes it very difficult for people to learn a second language.

Relating Shichida’s family experience-

“I have a daughter who is now in America. She speaks English as if she is a native speaker. When she went to America 10 years ago to study with 18 other Japanese students, she was the only one who could speak English well. She was asked by an American college professor, how she could express herself so well in English. She said, I started listening to English tapes for 30 minutes everyday at age two.”

Of course it was too late for the 18 other students to do the same. Learning a language or several other languages is effortless in the early years of life. This early exposure to foreign language paves the way for fluency later in life. Language accents and tonal sounds are naturally absorbed and remembered.

The different ways you may teach your child multiple languages are-

  1. Speak to him in your native language-High self-esteem, excellent communication skills and enhanced neurological development is fostered when parents talk to their babies from conception. Describe his world-what he sees, touches, smells, tastes and feels.

  2. Play a wide variety of foreign language tapes-These tapes should be played simultaneously with large Baroque music for best results.

  3. Read, read, read!-For those with a working knowledge of a second language, you should strive to translate some of your children’s books into that language. Read it in English and then switch to the foreign language. Soon, you may read it in only the foreign language and the child will understand.

  4. Flash Cards-French, Spanish and German translation-with the pronunciation-is included in some infant flashcard sets.

Every child between 0 to 6 has this potential in the right hemisphere of the brain. If ignored, these abilities will diminish and vanish by the age of 6. That’s one of the reasons why we should focus on early childhood education.

Education, thus far, is not really useful in developing students’ intelligence. Education of the future should aim at training that directly affects the brain instead of cramming of knowledge.
