Walking through the hallway back in my corporate job environment, I run into a former manager of mine. I’ve moved up to a higher-level job than I had when I was working for him. He’s a young friendly guy, feeling like a college basketball coach, blond and preppy and naturally energetic, good at motivating people since he really cares about them. He looks sad and overwhelmed, calling to me “Nancy! I need some of your enthusiasm — when can we get together?”.
Calendars out, we start to arrange a time that works for us both. A younger male employee who works for this manager comes up. I nod to him, then notice his teeth are all broken or missing! In his jaw he has a single tooth, then 2 or 3 spaces, then a tooth only half as long as it should be because it’s broken off, then more spaces before the next solitary tooth. I’m shocked, and ask the manager what happened to him. “Oh — you didn’t hear about his accident!”. I’m digesting this as I look at his face, which slowly transforms, getting more lumpy and misshapen until he looks like an ogre. Did losing most of his teeth change his personality too, making him hate himself?
A quiet older African-American man who has been working here for years appears. He does menial tasks and doesn’t get recognized, yet is essential to the functioning of the team. I notice for the first time his huge clear green eyes, taking up most of the top half of his face, looking like bottomless pools of meadow water. I say “I never noticed your beautiful eyes before. I’ll bet you see a lot!”. His eyes get more and more cloudy now, with his face looking defeated and sad.
A young brittle hyper woman hears me talk about eyes, and says “I have a lazy eye which I have to whip into shape!”. She then wanders off on another topic — she feels scatter-brained and easily distracted to me. From my vision improvement studies, I know a “lazy eye” (amblyopia) is anything but lazy, instead usually very strained, trying too hard to see rather than not hard enough. I offer “Would you like to learn how to help that eye?”. I’m not sure I have her attention any longer.
I wake up immediately noting how the vision situations of these people reflect their energy system and mindset and behavior. I didn’t notice anything about the manger’s eyes, but his usual high energy was slumping from letting himself get overwhelmed with work responsibilities. The older man had clear green (heart chakra color!) eyes and had probably “seen it all” in his long life, yet when I put my attention on him and he was in the spotlight, his eyes got cloudy. So I’m guessing it jumbled his normally calm energy to be seen. The scatter-brained woman had an eye that wandered around and could not focus, just like her.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul, which I always took to mean the essence of a person. This dream seems to say the eyes are also the window to the soul’s energy or “vibe” (vibration), whether positive and optimistic and happy, or defeated and un-focused. I feel like my long-time vision improvement studies and my energy studies are coming together here. When I had this dream a few days ago, I was at an energy medicine workshop with Deborah King, who often says the body grows out of the human energy field, that a problem appears in the energy field before it manifests in the body. This reminds me of Dr. Bates’ “wrong thoughts” which lead to restricted vision. I’d love to help people like those here learn how to raise their energy, to make their vision and entire life better. Here’s to shining eyes and abundant health!
