August 2020 Newsletter

Hello, and an amazing August to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. Today's issue is about treating a symptom as opposed to the real problem. Enjoy!

Are you treating the symptom or the problem?

Taking a pill to suppress this symptom is telling your body "I don't want to address what's really wrong with you. I'm busy right now, so stop complaining!".

Headaches are rare for me. When one starts coming on now, it's often from too much thinking and trying, usually at the computer. Or it's from dehydration, which can sneak up on me in this hot summer weather, if I'm caught up in some activity and not paying attention to how my body feels. For either of these causes, the fix is obvious, and it's not a pill.

This is true for minor ailments like a headache, and also for bigger problems, which can start small, then if shoved aside or covered up, will only grow more intense. We are meant to have fulfilling enjoyable lives, not to struggle and suffer.

My teaching about vision improvement can involve more than eyesight. How do you see yourself, as a thriving vibrant being, or as someone who has to take care of others with no help? Or pehaps you see yourself as someone who rarely does anything right, and is destined for failure. The way you look at Life can tell your eyes and visual system "Seeing is work, a big struggle", which could lead to chronic eyestrain, or something worse.

Looking for patterns in my attitude and behavior has helped me move from treating symptoms to identifying underlying problems, both for myself and for my clients. An argumentative attitude could make interactions with family or colleagues or salespeople troublesome. Maybe the difficulty is not that cranky uncle after all, it's that I'm always expecting a fight!

You've heard "Be careful what you wish for", or "What you focus on, grows". If we approach an encounter anticipating friction, with a chip on our shoulder, that's probably what we'll get. We can see unexpected little roadblocks to our progress as calamaties, that the Universe is conspiring against us. Or we can see these as a chance to learn something, to build our coping muscles, and to grow. Take the time to look underneath the presenting problem, to see if it reminds you of something similar in your past. Maybe you weren't ready to deal with the root cause then, yet you are now. Do what you can to make your life as rich and expansive and satisfying as it can be.

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.
