How it feels to have a stroke - right brain, left brain and all that energy

I was recently forwarded a link to a You Tube video called How it Feels to Have a Stroke. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I sat through the 20-minutes of Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor discussing her experience of having a massive stroke.

She discussed the functions of the right and left hemispheres of the brain, and the physiological effects of the stroke on each of those hemispheres. She also discussed the effects of the stroke in terms of herself as an energetic being connected to the univeral energy force, which perhaps was the most interesting part for me.

Check it out - as well as giving a unique insight into the workings of the brain during a major trauma - and the signs/symptoms of a stroke, it's also an amazing observation about energy and the potential for us all to choose in every moment how we want to live.
