Ones eyes do not merely exist on their own. They are a truly significant element of your total person affecting the mind and entire body in a considerable way.
All regions of the visual system - the eyes, the muscles around and in the eyes, the optic nerve that leads to the brain and the visual cortex; all perform together and need a great deal of co-ordination and accuracy to perform at their best. Given that it is such a fragile system the visual system is really readily affected by emotional stress and fatigue, no matter where it comes from. The visual system is also very sensitive to any nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that might be present in the body.
Three components are involved in any holistic approach to how to improve your eyesight.
1. Physical eyesight
2. Inner vision
3. Emotional eyesight
1. Physical eyesight is a hell of a lot more than just twenty twenty vision. Physically seeing something requires 3 different skills.
Firstly - at any instant your visual field is huge and your mind must decide what to focus on. Skill 1: Peripheral VS Central Balance
Secondly, your eyes are instructed to focus on the object you are looking at. This is known as the step of Binocularity
Next, your eye muscles either contract or relax to bring the object into visual focus. Skill trois - accommodation
For all the above to work, the eye musculature must be in good working order, being relaxed and supple.
Any of the above 3 skills can be affected by tension and imbalance. This can lead to a barrage of different problems, including difficulty in focusing.. These problems may involve: your eyes always feeling exhausted, and poor memory and concentration.
2. Inner vision has a multitude of different features: imagination, visualization, memory, dreams and attitudes. Training your inner vision and minds eye will take you miles beyond 20/20, by improving your concentration, imagination, memory and ability to visualize and think creatively. Your attitudes about yourself and others will become more positive. You will have the power to destroy all those negative images in your mind and replace them with powerful images that can change your perspective of who you are.
3. Emotional seeing speaks about our recognition of the eyes as both a way to express how we feel and a way to connect to other people. The eyes are so often called â¤½the windows of the soulâ¤; Better Vision is a way to heal, clarify and open these windows, giving you the ability to speak with your eyes, with your eyes being in perfect synchrony with your feelings and your body language.
Vision problems often appear when there is both prolonged stress in the visual system and improper visual/muscular habit patterns. Some of the conditions you can get from stress and poor visual habits include near sightedness, far sightedness and astigmatism.
You may think that artificial lenses get rid of the problem of poor eyesight completely - since you can see perfectly clearly when you put them on. Saying that, spectacles play no role whatsoever in improving your ability to see with your bare eyes - naturally. Instead, over time you find yourself becoming more and more accustomed to wearing glasses.
The sooner you wake up to reality and realize that your glasses will actually make your eyesight worse, the better. The best thing to do if you want better vision, is to address and repair those poor visual habits so you can allow your eyes to function as they once did when you were young and likely blessed with perfect sight.
