Recently I held a vision coaching session with a woman who had never worn glasses, yet was starting to have difficulty seeing small print. I taught her palming, and we discussed what had changed in her life around the time her eyesight started giving her problems. Her son had recently left for college, so she had an “empty nest” at home now. She realized she could not see her new role clearly, since she had primarily been a mother caring for her dependent children for so long.
She is familiar with EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique, the energy healing modality of tapping on acupuncture points with the fingers to move the energy and calm the system. We did a little tapping on letting her old role go, and how exciting it was (rather than frightening) that she could create the new role she wanted.
We also talked about looking in a relaxed way, rather than tensing up every time she approached a line of print because she expected to have trouble reading it. She’s a student with me in my energy medicine classes, but like many people considered the eyes as separate from the rest of the body, so more difficult to heal. I told her if something was blurry, to close her eyes and imagine what it could be, then gently open her eyes to look at it, then close her eyes and imagine it even clearer. Since she’s never worn glasses, she has plenty of memories of clear sight to call on.
The day after our lesson she wrote me a note thanking me and saying the tiny print on her iPhone was clearer. She liked palming a lot, and I think her favorite technique was closing her eyes and imagining the print clearer. Anyone can do this. We have a lot more visual power than we give ourselves credit for.
