Neuro-Linguistic Programming: A Natural Way to Improve Eyesight
Through technological and scientific milestones, many diseases and conditions are being cured and improved. Through laser technology, cataracts can be removed and kidney stones can be obliterated in a matter of minutes. Indeed, more and more people are experiencing healthier and more fulfilling lives because of such medical breakthroughs.
Despite medical and scientific advancements, however, many people are still wary of undergoing surgery or taking newly-approved medication. Some individuals still prefer to exhaust all natural ways of healing and self-improvement, before they subject themselves under the knife. People tend to be more careful about undertaking medical procedures when it comes to their eyes.
Although laser-light technology has been available for the past years, many of those suffering from poor eyesight are still reluctant to undertake such treatment. Instead, more people are more comfortable and tolerant with natural healing processes, like Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
What is NLP?
Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP, is a field of study that is focused on suppositions that sounds, images, ideas and other sensory preceptors introduced to the unconscious mind can help a person achieve excellence. Believers of NLP assume that through verbal instructions a subjective perception of reality can be altered or changed for the better.
How can NLP Help Improve Eyesight?
NLP practitioners consider eyesight as a subjective experience. Hence, verbal impulses fed to the unconscious mind can help improve poor vision.
Many people experience losing something, such their car keys, and eventually finding them in places where they swear they have already checked. To illustrate, if you left your car keys on top of your microwave oven, instead of near the telephone, where it is usually placed, you won't be able to find the keys on the top of the microwave oven, even if you searched your keys there. According to NLP practitioners, people tend to not see things in unexpected and unusual places –- in this case, above the microwave oven.
The key to naturally improving your eyesight is through exercises that will help and enhance your senses. People who are wearing glasses often find themselves dependent on such contraptions because they have been used to the help of eyeglasses to have perfect vision.
Just as much as physical therapy is used to help people make use of their limbs again, eyesight exercises can also help improve your poor vision. Just regularly follow the exercises listed below, and, in no time, you will see a great improvement on your eyesight.
You can eliminate astigmatism by exercising the underused muscles of your eyes. The Tibetan Wheel, when done at least twice a day, could help improve the flexibility of all of your eye muscles.
Attach the Tibetan wheel to a wall, ensuring that its central point is at the same height as your nose. Without glasses or contact lenses, stand precisely at in front of the wheel, a few paces away. Ensure that you can comfortably see the chart from where you are standing. Then, walk closer to the chart, as the muscle of your eyes become even more flexible.
Once your eyes have adjusted, slowly move your eyes clockwise to the outer part of the chart. Then slowly use your eyes to outline the outer edge of the chart, until you reach to the point where you started. Do not over-exert your eyes; stop when you feel exhausted or dizzy.
Relaxation Technique Using Your Palms
Sit comfortably on a chair with your feet on the ground. Then, vigorously rub your palms together. Afterwards, put your cupped palms over your closed eyes. Rest the base of your palms on the bottom part of your eye socket. Now, think of black velvet and pay attention to its color and fabric.
Both exercises mentioned above will help exercise the muscles of your eyes and help your eyes feel relaxed. The more you undertake these exercises, the more you will experience clearer vision.
