February 2024 Newsletter

Hello, and a fine fine February to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. Today's issue is about making the view easier to see. Enjoy!

Could it be easy to see?
 man peering at the writing on a small piece of paper If you look around you at just a few people, it's easy to find someone straining to see. Perhaps they're in the grocery store, peering at the items on the shelves, or the signs above each aisle telling you what you'll find there. Dr. Bates, the pioneer eye doctor and scientist, said over 100 years ago that strain lies underneath all vision problems, from mild myopia to more serious maladies like cataracts or glaucoma. So why do we make the simple natural function of seeing so complicated and difficult?

First, we've been taught since we were very young that the harder we try, the more we'll accomplish, that nothing worthwhile is achieved without struggle. No pain, no gain! It's one thing to set your intention on a desired goal, then let that intention guide your actions as you proceed forward. It's another thing to strain and push, exhausing yourself. If it's that difficult, might a change of direction, or a different approach, be worth considering?

I strained and tried, attempting to force my eyes to see better, considering myself fundamentally lacking, flawed even. In many other areas in my life besides my eyesight, when I couldn't do something I thought I should be able to do, I judged myself harshly. I had the belief that if I wasn't nearly perfect, I wasn't adequate. This was so much pressure!

Perfectionism can be such a trap. For years I was proud of my "high standards", since I was good at many things, though vision certainly wasn't one of them. Accepting myself for both my skills and that some ordinary things are difficult for me has taken a long time. When a child is learning to walk and falls down, she does not feel like a failure, she often starts laughing! She knows she can get to her feet again and keep going. The Chinese saying "Fall down seven times, get up eight" isn't only applicable to walking.

Do these 2 men look like they're having fun? It hurts me to feel how they're struggling. How could they be looking in an easier way? Do they need better conditions, like more light on what they're seeing, or to be closer or farther away? If their eyes are dry, maybe they need to do some easy blinking to moisten them. Or they might consider taking a break to rest and come back later, with a fresher mind and more relaxed eyes.

Vision is supposed to be easy and relaxed, like letting in a fragrance or taste or sound from our environment. We're usually not trying when we listen or smell, we just receive the input and interpret it. The picture of the happy youngster represents this ease and joy of receiving, with no effort necessary. So can we look and see with less struggle? Imagine what it would be like to gently open your eyes and just see everything in front of you clearly, like a child, with no squinting or peering. Hold that mental image of effortless vision as a goal, and notice yourself coming closer to that as your reality.

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, the first on February 12th at 3PM Eastern. You can check out all 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 fantastic month of February. I'll write again in a few weeks. Take care!
