December 2014 Dreamer Sight Newsletter
Hello, and a delightful December to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter.
The photo above shows me looking up at the sky, probably following
a bird in flight and being grateful for the detail I can see. Are
you looking around you and above you, or only narrowly focused
on what's straight ahead?
Today's issue has 2 articles, the first on vision and seeing size
correctly. The second article is about dreams, how they can
reflect your life back to you for a fresh perspective.
If a child gets eyeglasses at a young age, this can interfere with
normal visual development. Then "reaching out" might only be as
far as the lenses in front of the child's face! Wearing glasses flattens
natural depth. As you reduce your prescription, starting to
come out of those "eye cages", your visual system needs to
re-learn how to see normal 3D depth, and to estimate distance.
It can be done -- I did it (and am still doing it!) myself.
Vision: Seeing size accurately
When babies are first learning to see, they are fascinated
by moving shapes and colors, like a mobile dangling above
their crib. They reach out to grasp things, Mommy's face
or that toy, teaching themselves about spatial
relationships, about what is near and what is far.
As the infant grows and moves out into the world, the concept
of "far" changes from outside the playpen or crib to across
the room and as far as the baby can crawl to even greater distances.
He or she learns to estimate how far away something is by its
size and by the size of what is close to it.

No matter what your role, your dreams can help you move forward
on your path, or course-correct, if you pay attention to them and
apply their messages. Whether you're a housewife or farmer or
airline pilot or corporate mogul, your dreams can show you where
you are, and where you might be headed. You can indeed "live your
dream" (that's not just a catchy phrase!), by fine-tuning your actions
to align with dream wisdom. And it's so satisfying when you see
your dreams reflect a change you've made!
Dreams: Holding up a mirror to your life
In the previous newsletter I wrote
about dreams which show us behaving very differently
than the way we think of ourselves. See the first article
with the blue character pushing the red character, if you
want to review that. This time I'm interested in
familiar dream roles. Perhaps you often dream of yourself
taking care of children, or in an office, since that's where
you spend a lot of your waking time.
Within these familiar scenes, I like to look closely at my
behavior and my interactions. Am I acting in a
way which makes me proud, being considerate of others and
listening at least as much as I talk? If I'm teaching, which
I often am in my dreams, am I being clear, checking with my
students to see if they're taking in what I'm saying? Or am I
detached, just giving a speech?

I'm connecting with my student, click

to arrange this.
Please send me your questions and comments
Let me know what you've wondered about concerning vision or
dreams or EFT. I'll gladly write a short article addressing that
very topic. Thanks to those of you 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 sacred month of December.
I'll write again in a week or so. Take care!
