It is necessary to realize that each of us is a unique being and has their own unique setup and life experiences. Therefore, each person can tolerate incorrect laterality differently. Some people do not live their correct laterality and have almost no symptoms. Why? Because their body = system can handle it and it does not cause them major problems = symptoms.
It is very individual. Therefore, it is not necessary for people without symptoms to get tested. If they are fine the way they are, there is no reason to change anything and go through the polarity reversal process especially when they do not have the motivation.
Occasionally, there will be someone who claims to be left-handed, lives as a left-handed person, and yet has some or multiple symptoms of incorrect laterality.
Just remember that we live in a right-handed world. Most items are made to suit the right-handers. There are not many items to suit left-handers, and with some, it is not even possible.
For example – a car. Left-handed people would be much more comfortable if they could use their left foot for the gas and brake and the right foot for the clutch. Another example is the keyboard. For left-handers, it would be more convenient to have Enter button and the reversed (0 button for the left thumb and Enter button for the left little finger) numeric keypad on the left side. Another example is knives. These are sharpened exclusively to suit right-handed people. Even such a thing as a screwdriver has a right-handed screwing direction. Left-handers would need to screw in the opposite direction to how the lines of all the screws are made. We may find a large number of similarities. A left-handed person does not have the opportunity to live as a left-handed person entirely, because the world around us is right-handed. And the few items designed for left-handed people will make their life easier, yet they may not have a big impact (e.g. scissors, pencils, sharpener, scraper, etc.).
This fact can subsequently cause the reality that a left-handed person does not use his/her hands for many activities in a natural way. Sometimes I come across left-handed people who do not even use their left leg for activities adequate for the dominant leg. This results in the fact that many left-handers may do more than half of their activities with their right hand or right foot, even without realizing it. It may therefore lead to their incorrect laterality symptoms. Nevertheless, it all depends on how the individual “tolerates” this condition. Someone may be not bothered at all, yet someone else may have many symptoms.
Another parameter affecting the existence of symptoms is the fact of how much the individual does a specific activity in a day. A typical example is the use of a computer mouse. Someone may use it daily for several hours, but someone not at all. A left-handed person who uses a mouse in the right hand may, or may not, have symptoms. It depends on how often they use the mouse.
A left-handed lady wrote to me that she writes with her right and has no symptoms. Why? During a more detailed interview, we found out that she does everything that is adequate for the dominant hand in her life with her left hand, except for writing. Moreover, she writes so rarely that it does not trouble her system, so she does not have to have symptoms.
Many of the symptoms may also have another cause. Very often, it is the consequence of behavioral models that we have acquired throughout our lives. Furthermore, there is a possibility to examine causes arriving from the family system. For example, by using family constellations therapy.
To answer this, we may be inspired by the flowchart below.
No two beings are the same. Therefore, there is no definite answer to how a person tolerates incorrect laterality and what specific effect the polarity reversal process may have on them.
Karl Grunick’s 20-year experience with the Brain in Balance seminars shows that polarity reversal means for the seminar participants approximately:
The point of reversing the polarity is not to transfer activities to the other hand but to reduce the number of symptoms, exclude incorrect laterality as a possible symptomatic cause, and most importantly – to feel better.
Neither I (nor Karl Grunick) do everything with my left hand and left foot. There is no need for it. I have brought my polarity reversal to the stage where I feel good and symptom-free, therefore I no longer have the motivation or reason to continue this process. Yet, I enjoy exploring it, so I am playing with it further and exploring what other activities I can flip into the correct hand to make it feel more comfortable.
