Late August 2014 Dreamer Sight Newsletter
Hello, and a last bit of August Abundance to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter.
The picture above, taken with the sun setting behind me, makes me
think of saying goodbye to the long sunny summer days, while
eagerly looking forward to the new learning ahead. This time of
year always feels like "back to school" to me.
Today's issue has
a vision article and one about emotions which applies to
vision as well as to many other areas of Life.
Vision: Why should I practice with an eye chart?
People starting vision improvement can quickly get
overwhelmed with the many different eye exercises they hear about,
or the various programs or devices available promising to
sharpen eyesight. After avoiding the eye chart myself for
years, I finally saw its value. It does not have to be a test
(which I used to fail regularly in the eye doctor's office) -- it
can be a simple valuable tool for improving your vision. You
can find eye charts on-line
and print one to use for yourself for free.
is one example (scroll down past the first page of a legal notice and
some technical notes).

What is secondary gain?
My EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) teacher
often talks about helping to move people out of a stuck state. She'll
ask "What's the benefit to staying where you are?". If
nothing comes to mind, she'll then ask "What might be the drawback
to moving forward?". One of these usually sheds some light.
Perhaps someone has had a back injury for years which won't heal.
Although the person says he wants to get better, if he did, he'd
lose his workman's compensation payment and have to go back to
his job! Yes, quite a powerful reward for not healing.
Secondary gain is just this, a hidden payoff to what seems to be
a negative situation. Carol Look teaches if you're stuck, there's
always secondary gain.
Life is full of sacrifices and trade-offs, and I doubt if
anyone ever has 100% of what he or she wants in all areas,
career and health and relationships and family. However if
you seem to be in a holding pattern, saying you want to move
ahead but going nowhere, could there be a reason for this you haven't
been willing to face? The more honest we are with ourselves,
the better the choices we can make, and the happier our lives will be.
If you're unfamiliar with EFT, you'll find a brief description
so you can better understand its power.
I welcome your questions and comments
Let me know what you've wondered about concerning vision or
dreams or EFT. I'd be glad to write a short article for you.
I hope you've enjoyed
your Summer if you're in the Northern Hemisphere, or your
Winter otherwise. Have a wonderful finale to your August, and
I'll be in touch again soon.
