The key thing is to look at the Vision Transition Period because that’s when the aspects of personality began that are related to being nearsighted. Now, as I said, 7 out of 10, people that I’ve had these reports analyzed from remember a major event that occurred in their life a year or so before they noticed a limitation with their vision, but there are 3 out of 10 people who do not. Now they could partly be they’ve just suppressed a particular memory and can’t remember it, or it could be that there was not necessarily any significant major event that occurred outside. It’s just that the internal pattern of pulling away from the world could have grown in little increments over time and it could have been a slow process, but eventually it became habituated and it became locked into their emotional and physical being. There wasn’t any specific trigger event, they did not necessarily have a Vision Transition Period, but instead, their process was more gradual in terms of locking in that habit structure that says, “Pull away from the world.”
How does going back to that period and releasing the emotions that are attached to that period change the way that you can see now? The key thing is not what happened then, the key thing is the habit pattern, that part of our personality that got locked into emotion and into our physicality back then. If we do have a nearsighted personality inside us, that nearsighted personality is operating right now in our life. Do you ever have the situation where there’s a problem coming up but it’s not really a big one and you sort of pretend—you hear that squeak in the wheel in the back of the car, “Oh, it’s not really that big of a squeak and it doesn’t come all the time.” We pretend to not see and we pretend to not look and then sometimes we avoid it until there’s no room anymore to avoid it. There are many ways that our nearsighted personality exists right now, we can go through an entire day and go to the store and go to work and go to a million different places, but maybe never or maybe only once or twice actually really look in another person’s eyes.
Our eyes are sensitive, emotional receptors; when you really want to get to know somebody you don’t look up their nose; you don’t look in their ears; you look in their eyes. The eyes are an energy pathway, and the energy flows in both directions - into and out of the body. “The eyes are the windows to the soul.” When you look into someone else’s eyes, in a sense, you’re looking into their soul, and when they look into your eyes they’re looking into your soul. If there’s a desire to hide or a desire to protect or if there’s shame, you won’t want somebody looking into your eyes, or you may not want to look into somebody else’s eyes. The nearsighted personality lives in every moment.
The Program for Better Vision Audio Course combines not just physical exercises but also specific ways to release the patterns that have existed in the nearsighted personality. There’s a guided visualization that brings you back to that period of time to release the energy because for some people, you can’t clear it now until you’ve cleared it then. For other people, you can clear it then by clearing it now, and so there are different ways to get at it that are in the Program for Better Vision. But the key thing, again, is it’s not the external event, it’s the nearsighted response to the external events, and they exist now as well as then.
There are people I know who have done a lot of work on their consciousness and releasing stored emotions and they’ve even had their eyesight improve without even wanting to even improve their eyesight because they did this work and then go back for their regular eye exam and their glasses are weaker. For others, when they release the emotional underpinnings and then start to do the physical eye techniques, vision changes more quickly because no longer are the patterns ground so hard into their consciousness.
