Tapping the Cortices
with Amir Jaan
Amir has crafted this short video for you to demonstrate a simple, yet very effective technique of Tapping the Cortices.
Our brains consist of 2 halves; the right and left hemispheres. These two hemispheres connect at the base to enable communication between the two. When we become stressed, there are communication disruptions between the hemispheres. Yet, when the two hemispheres are well connected, the more optimally you are able to perform. This goes for everything- from the bedroom to the boardroom!
To dive in further to the functioning of the brain, each hemisphere is then divided into lobes:
Frontal Lobe (forehead): governs cognitive skills like decision making, learning, thinking, and emotional expression
Parietal Lobe (top of the brain): governs sensory information, like taste, touch, orientation and coordination
Occipital Lobe (back of brain): governs vision, colors, shapes, movement, and our interpretation of the things we see
Temporal Lobe (sides of the brain): governs hearing, language recognition and new memories
This specific practice stimulates the master glands of the brain. The master glands are part of the Endocrine system– a complex and sophisticated set of glands. This practice helps to optimize the functioning of this system and allows the brain to more easily balance between the two hemispheres. Overall, practising this on the regular can help reduce stress and increase intuition while balancing hormones. Sounds like a win-win-win to us!
Potential benefits to tapping the cortices
Tapping the cortices can:
- Improve clarity & focus
- Improve sleep
- Reduce the impact of stress
- Improve memory
- Balance your hormones
- Balance the nervous system
- Reduce headaches
- Increase patience
Amir recommends practising these exercises 5-6 rounds once or twice a day for a minimum of a week to see and measure the benefits of this practice. Feel free to continue longer to see more potent effects.
