Ted's vision blog
#58
It's been a long while since posting, a lot has happened.

I feel like I'm finally understanding and knowing when something is working. For a long time, maybe a year, I did so many things and felt different sensations, but I didn't know what was actually right or not. Like, I didn't even know the difference between subtle pain vs. subtle relaxation. And I think it's still confusing. Because of this, there is a big leap of faith and continual trust that has to be implemented, on the daily (at least for me). And it's not hard for me to believe that these things actually work, and are working. And every time I get to another level, I believe in this process more and more.

I'd like to talk about the mental side. I spend a lot of time on my bed just palming or just laying there, maybe moving around how ever I feel. Basically, I think it's important to change it up a lot. I think that's one of the most fundamental things going on here: that you have to relearn to continually let go, to relearn that what you actually want to do is move on, and that doing this is easier, it feels better, and is healthier for your mind and body.

I'm just starting to notice these things in people too. You can easily tell when someone is straining, whether that be in listening to you, or if they're trying to think of something. They furrow their brows, they pause, they lock up. It's pretty obvious to see that they are slightly uncomfortable. On the flip side, I really like observing and being around people with good eyesight. They seem to have this flow, this effortless flow to their movements, and to their minds. They converse better. They seem happier, they are just very at ease and enjoying wherever they are.

So, as far as techniques go, I'll say first that I'm still in the process of improvement, and techniques definitely have their place. But, the idea and ultimate goal is to do what people with normal vision do without even thinking about it. So care must be taken, and techniques should not be clinged to. Try something else, take a leap, change things up. Just keep that in mind.

Breathing is vital. I take so many relaxing exhales throughout the day. I heard from many places and experienced the fact that the actual relaxation takes place on the exhale. Try exhaling into a pillow. Notice how it slows your exhale and after a few exhales you will probably feel that relaxation I'm talking about.

Imagination. I'm still foggy on this, but there's definitely something going on there. If you prioritize imagination, strain and thoughts about the eyes disappear as a matter of just logic. You can't strain/think about the eyes while being entrenched in a good visualization, a good memory or something similar. So keep that in mind. Also, I've heard that imagining moving scenes, imagining different parts of an object or different objects in sequence is also great. According to Bates, that's how the normal mind actually functions, so it sounds legit to me.

And movement, swinging has been of great help. Whenever I don't know what to do but I know I feel stuck, I just move my body. You gotta do whatever you gotta do to feel better, each moment. You know what to do. Imagine you are always dancing. Imagine it. It'll change you for the better. Dancing for real is also just superb. It's an excellent way to enjoy life, to keep up physical activity, and to feel what a good flow of mind should always be like.

So dance with your mind, dance with your body, dance with your eyes. Greg Marsh talk about putting love into your eyes. That's what it is. I feel like people generally know what love means to them, even if the word is somewhat overused and, I guess, become desensitized. But if you know what that means, that feeling whatever it is, is what we are in search for more.

So yeah, you instincually know what you have to do, basically. Just do it.
