The other factor that’s involved is that the Vision Transition Period comes at a different time in different people’s lives. Some people had their vision transition somewhere between six and seven years old, others happened when they were 10, 11, 12 years old, some people, it happened when they were 16 or 17, others it happened at points later on in life. So if you’re trying to change an aspect of your consciousness that has been with you for so long, that can be a harder task than changing one that’s not that deeply intertwined and imbedded with all the different aspects of consciousness and personality.
Some people are so dependent on their glasses that they would feel more comfortable taking all their clothes off than taking their glasses off! Here’s an interesting phenomenon: when you’re dealing with the consciousness of vision: each person who is nearsighted and highly dependent on their glasses or contacts, when they take their glasses and contacts off, feels uncomfortable, but each person feels uncomfortable in their own unique way. Some people feel uncomfortable because they’re out of touch with what’s going on, they can’t see whether that person across the room is looking at them or having a critical look in their eyes or if they’re not paying attention. Other people, when they take their glasses off, they become afraid because they can’t tell if there’s a threat coming.
So different people feel different things when they take their glasses off. Well, when you take your glasses off not only are you feeling what you feel now in the face of that blurry world, but you’re also feeling the way that you felt during the Vision Transition Period. So taking your glasses off and spending some time in the world with your eyes the way they are is the doorway into gaining clearer vision and gaining access to that part of yourself that can see clearly because it gives you the opportunity to see what your response is to—you think it is your response to not seeing. “Oh, I’m nervous because I can’t tell what those people are looking at me or not,” or, “I’m afraid because I don’t know if that car is coming towards me,” or whatever the external things are that you think it’s about, but really when you take your glasses off and you allow yourself to feel how you feel about seeing or allow yourself to feel how you feel about not seeing, you then have the doorway into the very foundation of that nearsighted personality that’s inside of you and what the emotions are that have been stored in connection to that nearsighted personality.
In Part 3 of "What Your Glasses Reveal About You" we will explore how attitudes can affect how you see and what seeing means on different levels of consciousness.
