November 2014 Dreamer Sight Newsletter

Hello, and a marvelous November to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. The photo above was taken just before an energy medicine class started. I can see myself eager to learn, and somewhat amused that so many other students, more extroverted than I am, want to socialize. What learning is Life bringing you lately?

Today's issue has 2 articles, one about the misunderstood vision condition of astigmatism, and the other about EFT and why multiple sessions for a complex issue might be necessary. Enjoy!

Vision: Can vision therapy help my astigmatism?
funhouse mirror Many questions about astigmatism have crossed my desk lately, so I thought it worthy of some words here. Astigmatism is similar to nearsightedness or myopia. Yet with astigmatism you'll be nearsighted in only one angle of your visual field, not everywhere.

If you have astigmatism, the surface of the front of your eye, the cornea, is not smoothly curved and spherical. Tension in your eye muscles has pulled or pushed your cornea away from a normal healthy shape. This irregularity can make your view look warped, like you're seeing through wavy glass, with straight lines appearing curved.

To help heal astigmatism, ask your eye doctor if he or she can remove or reduce the CYL correction in your eyeglasses. Every time your eyes look through a strong prescription, that particular pattern of straining is reinforced and perpetuated.

A simple exercise to help astigmatism is eye circles, rotating your gaze all around the periphery of your view. Look as far as you can down, then circle up to your left, continuing around to look overhead, then right, slowly and without straining. Pay particular attention to any spots where your gaze seems to get stuck, or your eyes feel some soreness. Don't force it, just notice, and let go of the tension where you can.

EFT: Do I need multiple tapping sessions to clear that event?
tapping points People may tap on an issue and find it doesn't help much, or the issue re-appears later. They wrongly conclude EFT doesn't work, or "wears off". Here is what might be happening. First, ask if you are fully focused on the tapping, or just going through the motions. Tapping while your mind is mostly on something else won't give much benefit -- you have to be "in it", your attention on your problem.

Another common beginner's mistake is not being specific enough. Tapping on "I'm afraid to fly" won't be as helpful as "When the plane leaves the ground, I feel like nothing is keeping us in the air, and I am terrified". Also, targeting feelings is better than targeting an event. Instead of "This knee pain won't go away", try "I feel so angry (or helpless, or limited, or frustrated, or ...) with this knee pain!".

One last hint: what you think is a single situation may have multiple aspects, and you may need to tap on several of them to completely clear it. That auto accident memory might have the sounds of breaking glass, or anger at the driver who cut you off, or the smell of burning rubber, or the financial shock of the cost of the repairs, or the pain of the injuries you suffered tied to it. Often when a problem "comes back" after you tapped on it, this is probably what's happening -- you tapped on some aspects, but others are still around to trigger you.

If you're unfamiliar with EFT, you'll find a brief overview here, so you can learn more about it.

Would you like your own copy of future newsletters?
If a friend forwarded this to you, or you are reading it from a post on Facebook, this is a hit-or-miss method of receiving it -- you might not get it next time. If you'd like to be on my distribution list, send me a short note here. You can unsubscribe at any time. Thanks -- I love connecting with you!

Please send me 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 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 deep rich month of November. I'll write again in a week or so. Take care!
