We Are One...

Take a look at the link below this post and let me know what you think. This woman is pretty amazing. I found it very powerful. I found myself wishing I could learn to live more in the right hemisphere of the brain and I found myself feeling more confident in believing everything she talks about in relation to we are all energy, all connected, etc, because she is an "intellectual" as she herself says and a neurologist. I guess I am a bit ashamed that because she has those credentials I feel a little more free to believe and invest in those kind of, what I guess I would have called, 'alternative' beliefs. Anyway, I think you will come away with some inspiration from this woman, I certainly did but I wish now that I could talk to her and ask her some questions! Enjoy - love and peace to you all.


  1. WOW

    I actually got out of bed because I have such a bad head / neck ache tonight it hurt to lie in bed. For some reason after watching that my head doesn't hurt as much... still hurts but not as all consuming. I loved the "we within the me" statement. I would love to read or see more of this lady if you find anything. thankyou for sharing that Jen


  2. Wonderfully enlightening and inspirational, Jen. Thank You so much for this thoughtful Gift of insight. I watched the video, then Emailed it to several Friends who I know will benefit from it.

    Have I failed to tell You how much I Love You today? I have haven't I! A miserable oversight on my head's part. For, my Heart has been singing of Loving You every day. This is true! So now my head has to bow in shame to my heart and say what I have as a presence with me all through each day. "I love You, Jen!"

  3. I saw this talk a while ago, but have watched it a few times. I think she's absolutely amazing, and an inspiration in so many ways. She has a website... I saw her stained-glass brains a while ago too, and found them amazing. I gained a great deal of respect for our wonderful brains when I was studying psychology, but a whole lot more from listening to Jill Bolte Taylor. Thanks for spreading the word! Maybe you'd find an email link on her site? I didn't look, but there's probably one, if you have questions for her. go for it!

  4. happy mothers day jen.
    what a fine mother you are.

  5. Happy Mother's Day, Jen! I'm so glad you had such a nice day with your sweet boys.

  6. What an amazing women to be able to clearly remember the details of her stroke and then to articulate it so wonderfully is truly astounding. You are so right Jen she is so inspirational and it all makes so much sense when she explains it so effortlessly. I had a real light bulb moment(as Oprah would say).

    thanks for sharing this amazing women insight with all of us.

    cheers & lots of love


  7. Hi Jen,
    Thanks for the link - wow... how amazing to be so present during such a wild ride. Unfortunately, I'd be the one running around like a crazy chicken, I'm afraid. ;-)

    I love her message - what a way to take that away from her experience. Nice!

    Again, Happy Mother's Day, so happy you had a lovely one!

  8. Very inspirational and hugely interesting as I got told many years ago that I was a prime candidate for a stroke. The two sides of my brain disagree regularly.
    Thanks for sharing

  10. Jen, I watched this yesterday, and I experienced chills and tears. This woman has shared an incredibly moving story, and we can all draw from her wisdom.

    I am so glad you shared this with us.

  11. This is another wonderful TEDtalk, isn't it? HAppy (belated) Mothers' Day to you!

  12. Happy Belated Mother's Day, I'll go check this out.

  13. Yes, this is wonderful and inspirational. Thanks, Jen, and happy mother's day a little late. You are a gift to your children and to us!!

  14. Jen, It's nearly 4:00 in the morning here and I'm up late working on some essays. I took a break to visit your blog and clicked through to the video. It captivated me. All I can say is Wow. What beauty and power and inspiration and hope. I love it when science and faith come together. Just like the two hemispheres of our brains, eh?
