The roots of bad vision are in your beliefs, creating resistance to stop you from seeing clearly.

I founded iblindness.org in 2002 as I began reading books on the Bates Method and became interested in vision improvement. I believe that everyone who is motivated can identify the roots of their vision problems and apply behavioral changes to solve them. I am into spirituality, lucid dreaming, archery, hang gliding, health and fitness. I own a gym equipment store and gym equipment blog.

Awesome! Beliefs are so important in the psychology of vision. Barnes mentions in his book that a tightrope walker can walk the rope over a great height which ordinary people can’t do simply because they are afraid of falling. He theorizes that when a person is unable to focus on an object under certain conditions, when the same or similar conditions are present the next time, fear may set in and impaired vision will result. Continuing fear will likely start a downward spiral and if it become habitual blurred vision will commence. Great video by the way!
People can do amazing things when they stay focused and confident!
Also on a more mundane level, every day we get out of bed and have a chance to ask ourselves, “What kind of day is this going to be?” and affirm an answer, setting it into motion, and no matter what may happen that day that is out of our control, we will notice significant things that made it a good day.
In practicing yoga poses I notice that if I think about the possibility of losing my balance it becomes much harder and I start to lose my balance. If I think only of doing the pose and getting as much out of it as possible, balance is much less of an issue.
Darrel – that book reference kinda set something in motion for me, especially the second part. Would you mind specifying author/title? Thanks very much in advance!
With great pleasure Roman!
The book is called “Improve Your Eyesight” by Jonathan Barnes. Originally published in 1987 but has been reprinted. Amazon has a few copies and also sells it as an ebook. I referred to pages 86-87.
It’s a great book and I sincerely recommend it. Barnes had a biology degree from Sussex University.
That was quick 🙂 – Thanks a lot, Darrel!
Now I know why “Barnes” rang an ever so faint bell – the book is in my “possible future purchases” bookmark folder … I shall go ahead and do so now. Thanks again!
David thanks – So Very relevant to a growth mindset leading to new actions… when did you last do something for the first time? See afresh, relax, challenge, and take controlled risks see again blurred vision for extended periods knowing you have the tool kit to recover your eyesight. Are the visuals your hang gliding? Belief systems can be challenged, see the resistance, watch every thought; when you can discard the negative ones for what they are worth its time to move on. yes say some more the visuals are captivating and the message can get lost in the visual distractions. Key words or one liners will engage the mind and prepare US for the journey, Our sightseeing journey. Its all about experiencing or connecting – seeing the detail, focus 360 degree awareness stillness.
Yep, beliefs can be changed, especially when they’re leftover ones that you know aren’t best for you and you want to change.
