March 2014 Dreamer Sight Newsletter
We are finally approaching the Spring season here in NY after
a long cold Winter. Birds are singing, the grass is turning green,
flowers are just starting to bloom. Colorful life is everywhere
for practicing relaxed joyful curious looking! A myopic vision
improvement acquaintance complained recently about getting bored
and straining when he looks far away. So it is difficut for
him to follow the healthy vision
advice to "shift from detail to detail in the
distance". I told him to try shifting in the distance over
longer distances, say from tree to tree. Or to do this with
nearer distances, maybe 50 feet away instead
of a half-mile. It's best to find an activity which slightly
challenges your current level of vision (or you won't improve),
yet is not so hard it overwhelms you (or you won't do it!).
For those of you not familiar with EFT or "Tapping", click
for a brief overview.
In a few weeks I'll be participating in an EFT weekend
workshop with my teacher
who will also certify me as one of her Abundance Coaches soon.
Since EFT is becoming a larger part of my practice, I'm looking
forward to learning even more at this workshop and further
refining my skills.
This month's picture is me in California, raving to a friend with
a camera about the expansive view. Many people have commented
to me that their vision is clearer and sharper outdoors in natural
light, which is why I look so happy here!
I encourage vision improvement students to play with
seeing colors and color distinctions, as a way to also improve
their clarity of vision. Last Autumn I wrote
about the topic of color vision, and
appreciating the vibrant shades of Fall. The principles apply
equally well to Spring colors. Every season has its own beauty!
Many times a month I dream I'm in an eating scene. This often
points out how I am
nourishing myself (or not!) other than with food. In a recent
dream I'm sitting in a cafeteria having breakfast, when several
people rush off to an activity. I tell the woman I'm with that I
want to stay here and savor the meal, not hurry away and make
stressed. I feel only slightly guilty about "being lazy". Waking
up, I had to smile: my dream self is wiser than my waking self!
I can indeed get too caught
up in accomplishing and productivity, forgetting that leisure
is equally important.
Take some time to smell the flowers yourself this month!
What's coming up for me
In early April I'll be participating in
a meditation workshop with my energy medicine teacher
Deborah's meditation has greatly reduced my lifelong
anxiety. This has not only helped my vision, but also my overall
health and well-being. In the next newsletter I'll tell you
about this adventure, as well as the EFT one mentioned above, and
what I learned from each.
I welcome your comments
Last month I received some great feedback on the newsletter.
If you have anything specific you would like me to write
about, just send a short email to Nancy@dreamersight.com, or
via the "Contact Nancy" link above. You can also
send me the name and email of any friend whom you think would
like to receive future newsletters.
Enjoy whatever images your healthy eyes
bring into your awareness.
Thanks, and I'll see you next month!
