Healthy vision is also a matter of the mind, and not just the eye.
Vision self-healing, like any other healing, begins with the mind first, and not the body or the eye for that matter.
The intention to heal comes from within, specifically, the mind. With intention, comes concentration and then focus to empower yourself with the knowledge to heal your eyes of any vision problem you may have. The manifestation of the mind is reflected throughout the healing process, irrespective of the eye or any other body organ.
Healing begins with the mind, and mind healing is always mind over matter.
Changing for the Better
The mind can either heal or harm. Your mind can help you improve your vision because vision healing is all in the mind, but it can also increase your subconscious internal resistance to following new patterns requisite for self-healing.
All vision begins with thoughts. Seeing is a matter of the mind. To see better, you need to change not only the way you “think” about seeing but also the way you “go about” seeing. It is all in the mind—your thinking mind!
Changing your vision habits—most of which may be incorrect or even damaging to your vision health—is not an easy task. Once these visual patterns are deeply ingrained in your mind, they have become your long-term memories, and to change them or to eradicate them becomes a new challenge. But you can and you must overcome that challenge through your mind power.
Harness your mind power to do two things for you:
To restore your memories of clear, sharp visual images
To visualize familiar images of clear vision, such as imagining total darkness in order to totally relax your optic nerve (total relaxation occurring only in total darkness) connected to your brain.
Memory and imagination are powerful tools for you to improve your vision, because your mind has a deep connection with your eyes. Effectively using your mind can successfully stimulate clearer and better vision. It is always mind over matter.
Changing vision habits
How do you change your bad vision habits? There is a saying: “It is difficult to teach an old dog new tricks.” The conscious mind is often reluctant and resistant to any change. Believe it or not, most of us are stubborn creatures—more like an old dog—who do not want to get out of own comfort zones. The only way to overcome this obstacle is through changing the subconscious mind.
Basically, your mind is made up of your conscious mind and your subconscious mind. Your conscious mind makes decisions and you act accordingly, but it is your subconscious mind that directs your conscious mind. That is to say, in your conscious mind, you are fully aware of your actions and their respective consequences; in your subconscious mind, where you store your emotions and memories, you only respond spontaneously to repetitions of words and images in the form of affirmations and visualization. In other words, if you keep on repeating positive self-suggestions or visualizing positive images in your mind’s eye, you can effectively change the thoughts in your conscious mind through your subconscious mind.
