We refer to incorrect laterality as “unrealized/undetected left-handedness” and “unrealized/undetected right-handedness“. Since the vast majority of people with incorrect laterality are covert left-handers, we only list them (covert right-handedness is a rare exception). But of course, the same applies to hidden right-handers.
There are clear consequences of not living the right laterality on a physical, emotional and mental level. The cause of the symptoms is that a person with unlived right laterality uses their body contrary to their natural energy setting. It can be compared to, for example, sending women to fight with a sword and men to arrange roses. In both cases, it will bring some results, but it will be more effective and bring longer-term satisfaction, if both the man and the woman do the work that is natural to them.
If someone does not live their natural laterality, their life could be compared to driving a car in reverse with the handbrake on. It’s very demanding, and it takes an excessive amount of energy, but if you try hard, you somehow manage to do it. Such a person often looks for the elimination of consequences in books and at various self-development events. Because he/she does not use their body according to its nature, the integration of the knowledge from the seminars is not complete. This person reduces and removes the consequences of incorrect laterality with great effort. However, they do not reach the cause. The brain and entire system of such a person are overloaded and have no capacity for change. They may suspect that others do not feel the same way. Most of the time, they will get used to the fact that “I just have it that way”.
Not living one’s natural laterality may cause many consequences and affect the quality of life. We call these consequences “symptoms of incorrect laterality“. Their accumulation may indicate a lack of living with the correct laterality.
1. The person confuses the left and right sides.

If you find yourself in many, most, or all of the symptoms listed above, then you may (but not necessarily, see video 58:45) be one of the 39% of people in the Czech Republic who do not live their correct laterality.
According to statistics from our seminars, where the natural setting of laterality is demonstrated in many exercises, hidden left-handers have 20% to 100% of symptoms. So, it’s not about the number of symptoms, but more about how a given topic resonates or “resonates” with a person.
Some symptoms may have another related cause, such as copying of the behaviour patterns in the family, or trauma that a person experienced in childhood or inherited from the family system. It is possible that other methods, techniques, and therapies will make these behavioural patterns more visible. However, these techniques may not be fully effective for someone who is not living their correct laterality.
