One of the components of the Intrinsic Brilliance™ method is the acknowledgement that we have multiple sources of innate wisdom. However, only when those sources are integrated and aligned are we operating at our peak and shining our brightest.

Many people aren’t aware that we have three distinct brains. A brain is defined as a complex neural network and so include the head, the heart, and the gut. Each brain manages different aspects of our being. Marvin Oka and Grant Soosalu share this in their book mBraining: using your multiple brains to do cool stuff and outline the neuroscience research supporting their process.

Brain Number of neurons Functions/Responsibilities
Cephalic (head) 50-100 billion Perceiving, Thinking, Meaning-Making
Cardiac (heart) 30-120 thousand Emoting, Values, Relational Affect
Enteric (gut) 200-500 million Identity, Self-preservation, Mobilisation

The highest expression of the head is creativity.

The highest expression of the heart is compassion.

And the highest expression of the gut is courage.

Problems arise when people give preference to one brain over the others, which is what often happens when people elevate logic over intuition. Both are valuable, and there is a specific sequence for how we can connect to all three.

When our brains are integrated and operating in alignment with one another – we can do that using multiple Brain Integration Techniques (mBIT) – a brilliant way of authentically being and leading emerges, and radiates out from us.
