April 2024 Newsletter

Hello, and an astounding April to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. Today's issue is about vision being a metaphor for Life. Enjoy!

Vision as a metaphor for Life
 elephant in living room What we see or don't see, or want to see or refuse to see, affects our behavior, which has a direct affect on our life. If something is right in front of your eyes and you're unwilling to let it in, this could have negative, even disastrous consequences. You have closed off an essential channel for taking in information about your environment.

Similarly, our attitude about what we see can guide our life. Are you walking around with a chip on your shoulder, expecting everything you encounter to be a problem, and every person you meet to give you an argument? You may end up drawing those grumpy complaining folks toward you, which will just reinforce your belief that your life is full of struggle and difficulty. You probably won't notice any of the delights and wonders which surround you when you hold onto such a negative outlook.

 optimism What is your attitude about your vision? (This likely parallels your attitude about your life, by the way.) "My eyesight will only get worse" or "It's getting harder and harder to read fine print" can become self-fulfilling prophecies. Henry Ford said "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right". To paraphrase, "If you think things look dark and discouraging, they are". Could you shift your focus to see the joys around you, and the many possibilities?

Clients have come to me bemoaning their declining vision as they get older (when they're a few decades younger than I am), and I can feel that hopeless outlook permeating all throughout their life, influencing how they feel about their job and their marriage as well as their vision. "Always look on the bright side" can feel happy-sappy or Pollyanna-like, but there is a lot of wisdom in the saying. If you want to look for problems you can usually find them. (Did you ever have a nit-picky teacher or boss?). If you look for what's going well, you can find that too.

Maybe we pretend we're more confident than we feel, then complain to close friends that we're not good at this or that. To me this is sending a mixed message of "I don't feel that good about myself in this area, though I'm doing my best to ignore that reality". Shutting our eyes to what's right in our face isn't a good idea. If there's part of your life where you feel less-than, you can take a class or hire a coach or get help from an experienced friend. Doing nothing won't change the situation.

Although I was highly myopic at -10 as a child, teen, and young adult, I hate to admit how long it took me to address this and start to loosen those long-standing restrictive patterns. I pretended I could see fine in the thick hard contacts I got at age 16, though they were troublesome to take care of and uncomfortable. It was only when I discovered in my 40s that vision improvement was possible that I faced my situation honestly, and dared to hope I could change it. With whole-body exercises and emotional work and targeted vision practices, I've eliminated my dependence on glasses, and I continue to improve. Like Louise Hay wrote, "You can heal your life". It only takes intention, moving into the driver's seat, and taking control. And it's so rewarding!

Upcoming EFT series with a master teacher!
My skilled insightful EFT teacher Dr. Carol Look will be offering a new 3-week 6-session series starting in May, Unlock Your Abundance. I can't recommend Carol's work highly enough. Note that your own abundance challenge may be financial, or with health, relationships, or in some other area. We'll have 3 activation sessions to get ready, in February, March, and April, all of which will be available afterward when you register. You can check out the details here.

Have you wondered if my work could help you?
I'm now offering complimentary Discovery Session consultations of 20 minutes or so, for us to discuss what you're looking for in a coach, and to see whether you and I feel like a fit to work together formally. To schedule your Discovery Session, click here.

Do you want your own copy of future newsletters?
If a friend forwarded this to you, or you're reading it from Facebook or LinkedIn, this is a hit-or-miss method of receiving it, and you might not see it next time. If you'd like to be on my distribution list, you can join here. You can un-subscribe at any time. Thank you!

Please send me your questions and comments
Let me know what you've wondered about concerning energy medicine or vision or dreams. I'll be glad to write a short article addressing that topic. Thank you to those who have sent me questions, or see a question you asked me in a private session written about here. You're helping many other people! Enjoy the start of this abundant month of April. I'll write again in a few weeks. Take care!
