Ted's vision blog
#54
I've been reading a lot of older posts on this forum, reading some from William McCracken, and experimenting daily. The older posts are still very much relevant and can be very helpful, if you get bored of seeing the same posts on the forum. And McCracken has a good way of explaining Bate's concepts, which allows you to understand them in a different perspective but still coming from the same era as Bates.

So some things that have been working lately:

-Just imagining what good vision and effortless shifting would feel like. How my entire body would feel, how I would be more open to things, how my eyes would easily and quickly move to interests and study things with genuine interest. How I would move in an easier, quicker fashion, a more efficient way. I think this is a good example of thinking positively, thinking only of what you want. If you are completely absorbed in imagining what you want you will have no room to remember strain. But you have to be really honest with yourself, really sincere about what your imagining. And you have to be detailed as well, otherwise it wont be as impressing to the mind.

-Finding a lot of relaxation in swinging. You can even see a swing when walking. You can notice that objects bounce up and down due to your head bobbing up and down with each step. And I think it really helps during actual swinging sessions to use a scenery that has varying distances. This allows you to see the relative motion of things, helping create a 3-D view of the world. I've had some nice clear flashes while doing this. I think this is why it is recommended to swing while looking out a window. As arocarty has mentioned, even just a slight swaying of your body, an inch or so, can be enough to see things moving. You also don't need to even move your entire body, it could just be your head, and I guess eventually you want to get where you notice this motion with just an eye movement.

-Walking just seems to be a good way to promote movement. You get new visual stimuli all the time, you see things moving both from the swing and actual moving objects. I went for along walk last night with the goal in mind to keep shifting my gaze as comfortably and continuously as I could, paying special attneiont to where my attention wanted to look and doing my best to follow it. I think as, eaglevision has mentioned, people with higher degrees of myopia have a real problem with shifting effortlessly. I think I'm just going to keep shifting, regardless of feeling, because in my current state, I still don't know the difference very well between what is effortful and what is something that I'm just avoiding doing. I don't quite have a handle on what the right things to do are, fully. But I'm closer to knowing. Once I've experimented enough, and convinced myself of what are the correct things to do to promote vision, then I will place more and more emphasis on that. At the moment, I am getting a handle on knowing how to shift, sensing when to shift, when to blink, etc. It's going to take time, but I will eventually get it.

Humans are creatures of adaptation. We are first placed in an environment, and then we adapt, not the other way around. So I think we need to first move ourselves into the environment of continual shifting and continual blinking no matter how uncomfortable, and then over time adapt to it, making it less effortful and more natural. This is where people get confused thinking that being in a new environment is a strain and that they should avoid it. Again, it's not about what is comfortable, it is about what's right. By right, I mean what promotes better vision and better mental effectiveness.

Kind of contradictory to what I just said but, I think I know enough about vision improvement from reading material and this forum. It's just time to start really getting experience, to really start doing something, and really experiment with sincerity.
