I used to think that one of the differences between TweedleWink and Shichida/Heguru was that TweedleWink didn’t really focus on develop ESP. In fact, I wasn’t even sure if TweedleWink believed in ESP. That is, until now.
ESP – The Right Brain Senses
As I said before, ESP seems to be a rather controversial topic in right brain development. Sometimes I think calling it ESP seems to create a misconception about right brain education. Many people think of ESP as some sort of paranormal condition that can’t be explained by science. That’s if you even believe in it. The non-believers think it’s fiction – the tricks of charlatans and magicians. Perhaps if we gave it a different name – one not so closely tied with the word paranormal – and started talking about the scientific theories to support it, there might be less skepticism towards it.
However, if you believe in “The Secret” and “The Law of Attraction“, then you really can’t dismiss ESP as some sort of paranormal phenomenon. The science behind The Secret and The Law of Attraction is the same science behind ESP. We’re talking quantum mechanics – the fact that everything is made up of moving particles. The movement of the particles creates wave energy and it is that energy which connects everything together. In a strange ironic way, Yoda wasn’t exactly too far off the mark when he talked about the Force and how it flowed through everything around us. The only part he got wrong was that he said it flowed through all living things. According to quantum mechanics, it flows through inanimate objects, too.
Anyway, I digress… I thought that TweedleWink activities didn’t help to develop ESP because they never played any of the ESP games that were in Heguru and Shichida. After reading Shichida’s book, I realise now that I was wrong. Imaging is the fundamental right brain activity that helps to develop all of the right brain’s remarkable abilities, including ESP. Imaging is also done in TweedleWink. I think the most recent article I received from Right Brain Kids explains this further. Here is an excerpt from the newsletter – it is about being able to “feel” colours:
HOW TO SENSE COLOR WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED
“Can you feel the color green?” I asked my children the other day during a right brain frequency class.
They immediately said, “Yes!”
“How?” I asked.
One said, “They have different thicknesses, different vibrations.” The other agreed and added, “I can tell, by touching my clothes, which ones are green because green is my favorite color!”
What a perfect right-brain explanation!
Here’s the left-brain explanation:
Light enters our body through the eyes and through the skin. Each color has a specific wavelength. It is possible to feel these wavelengths.
The blind can sense the quality of colors on objects as they run their hands over them. Some colors feel hot, some may feel cool. Some people without sight even note that each color has a specific texture. When we heighten our senses, we can become aware of color, too.
I know I said in a previous post that I am skeptical about ESP. Yet, here I am writing all about it and trying to find out more. So what is it? Do I believe, or not? Well, I want to. The part of me that was a child twenty years ago wants to believe. I have also learned not to discount anything – no matter how fantastic it may sound – because we once believed that the Earth was flat and that the Sun revolved around the Earth. Now we know differently. In another twenty years, ESP could be a normal part of life.
If you’d like to learn a little more about ESP and how to help your children develop their right brain ESP senses, there is a book called “ESP for Kids” by Tag Powell. I haven’t read it but it sounds like a good “how to” book. The book I have from Shichida talks about the activities you can do with children to help them discover their ESP potential but I feel that the “how to” part is still lacking in detail. You can get your own copy of the book, or you can stick around and wait for me to blog my own notes from it – I’m still waiting for the book to be delivered.
