Mid-December 2020 Newsletter
Hello, and a marvelous delicious Mid-December to you!
Is it a vision problem, or an energy problem?
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter.
Today's issue is about vision problems as symptoms of deeper issues.
Clients hoping to improve an issue related to their eyesight usually have other troubles in their lives as well.
The vision challenge is an indicator of an underlying deeper difficulty, even if that difficulty isn't fully acknowledged yet.
Perhaps they have major eyestrain, with bloodshot eyes looking like the image to the left, because they're pushing
their entire body and mind relentlessly. Our eyes are not separate from the rest of us!
The visual system, since it's so sensitive to mistreatment, can often be "the canary
in the coal mine", the first indicator that our lifestyle and the way we're treating
ourselves needs some adjustment. Early in my training I studied with a behavioral
optometrist. He counseled his glaucoma patients, who had pressure in their eyes
which was too high, to examine where else in their lives they were putting too much
pressure on themselves. This could have been in their careers, or their relationships,
with their health, or somewhere else. The eyes were merely reflecting that dynamic.
In my energy healing studies, my teacher often talks about "key point" -- what is the area
in the client where work would be most effective right now? You might intuit that they have a different
serious problem than the one they're complaining about, possibly some kind of addiction. Yet you
sense they're just not ready to face that now or deal with it. So focusing on calming them, or
helping them be more grounded and centered, may be the best use of your healing skills at the moment.
Searching for unhealthy patterns or habits which may have led to your eye troubles doesn't mean you should
blame yourself. You were doing the best you knew how at the time. Like Maya Angelou said "when you know better,
you do better". There will always be one more email to answer, or one more show to watch. Give your eyes and
brain the down time they crave, and they will perform much better for you.
You may think all your eye problems started because of that injury or accident, which you are
convinced was someone else's fault, and that you're blameless. Is hanging onto that anger and
resentment and maybe even some self-pity helping you? Could it be possible you were rushing, or distracted
and not paying full attention? Do what you can to soften the grumpy feelings, and be grateful for
how good your visual system is at healing and improving.
You've heard it said that we should see "with the eyes of a child", with that innocent wonder and
curiosity and awe. If you have a happy child in your life, their shining eyes and uplifted energy
can be an inspiration to you. Everything around you is a work of art, the mundane as well as the
miraculous and exquisite. Think of a youngster who receives a new game, then is fascinated with
the box containing it. Let your visual system explore the wonders around you, the faces and the
flowers and the pebbles on the ground, appreciating it all. Being truly grateful for what Life presents to you,
in every minute, is a recipe for happiness and for health, visual and otherwise.
