Most people believe that eyesight problems have no cure and require expensive surgeries. Moreover, The general idea is that as we get aged, our senses begin to fail, and eyesight tends to go first. Fortunately, the REAL truth is that you can regain your vision by exercising daily.
If you wear glasses, you will probably have been diagnosed as suffering from at least one of these conditions:
- myopia, or short-sightedness;
- hypermetropia, or long-sightedness;
- presbyopia, or “old-age” sight;
Good news! By following our proven 4 steps, you will improve your eyesight incredibly overnight!
Step 1: The Long Swing
Stand with your legs slightly more than hip-width apart, and your knees slightly bent. Hold your index finger about one foot in front of your face, pointing up to the ceiling.
Look at your finger with a soft gaze. If you are legally blind, or even with correction have an inferior vision, you can look at your index and middle fingers together.
While looking at your finger(s), swing your body from side to side. As you swing to the right, twist your body so that your left heel rises slightly off the ground. As you twist your body to the left, your right heel raises somewhat off the ground. If your hand becomes tired, you can switch sides. Do this at least twenty times.
You will notice the sensation that everything in the background seems to be moving in the opposite direction of your finger, like scenery passing by you as you look out the window of a train.
Allow yourself to feel the sense of relaxation that comes when you don’t need to place a hard focus on any one object. Move to the right, and the world moves to the left. Move to the left, and the world moves to the right.
The next step is critical. This is where we visualize the long swing. We close our eyes and do the movement with our bodies, and imagine in our mind’s eye that the world is swinging back and forth, passing in front of our eyes.
Everything you visualize is moving directly opposite. When you move to the right, the neighborhood moves to the left. When you move to the left, the whole world moves to the right. Remember how you saw objects this way. Now you open your eyes and continue the exercise.
Step 2: Looking into the Distance
Look at the waves. Look at the sky. Look at the clouds. Look at the hills and valleys. If you are not near the beach, look out your window at the many other buildings.
When you look near (as when staring at a computer screen), you unknowingly strain your eyes. The ciliary muscles contract and this changes the shape of your lens from flat to round. When you look into the distance, however, the ciliary muscles relax, and the suspensory ligaments keep the lens flat and more flexible.
Many people in our culture are used to eyestrain from looking at computers, televisions, and books so much of the time. They pay attention to the contents and not to their eyes, which causes them to strain. Looking close makes you strain. Looking with boredom makes you strain. When you push on with the computer project, or the television show, or the book, you strain your eyes—even when you are aware of the strain.
Looking with boredom makes you strain. When you push on with the computer project, or the television show, or the book, you strain your eyes—even when you are aware of the strain.
Never look closer than forty yards away, because you need to look far enough to rest the eyes from looking near. Know that when you look into the distance, you don’t have to stay focused on one point; you can scan or look at different areas within the location you are looking at. Remember to blink and to avoid straining to see it. If it is fuzzy, let it be fuzzy.
Step 3: Exploring the Periphery
It is impossible to strain your eyes while looking centrally if you remember to focus on your periphery simultaneously. In our culture, we suppress parts of the eye that help us to see well naturally. It is a subconscious suppression. We suppress the periphery because we make it irrelevant to our lives. As we focus on objects in front of us, we simply don’t pay attention to what’s around us.
On the other hand, our ancient fathers and mothers, our predecessors, had to pay attention to their surroundings; in the jungle, you wouldn’t last more than a week without noticing the periphery. In fact, you would be eaten, or you would starve to death if you didn’t notice what was around you…
Exercise 1: Look into the Distance
Sit somewhere comfortable where you can see something in the distance that you enjoy looking at. As you look into the distance, start to wave your hands to the sides of your head to notify your eyes that a periphery exists. Don’t look at your hands waving; just look into the distance. Allow your eyes to recognize the movement of your hands.
Wave your hands in such a way that your fingers point toward you and your wrists are loose. Do this for a minute or two. As you do this, you should feel your eyes release their tension; this relaxation in your eyes is vitally important to healthy vision.
Exercise 2: The Small Pieces of Paper
Cut out a small piece of opaque paper (about one inch by two inches) and tape the paper horizontally on the bridge of your nose so that the wide parts are centered in front of your eyes. This will disrupt part of your vision.
Walk around in a familiar environment with this paper on your nose for a minute or two. Now sit down and wave your hands to the sides of your head as you did before. Stand up and sit down several times, moving your whole body up and down, as you wave your hands to the sides. As you do this, it reveals to your brain the existence of a moving periphery with which it usually does not connect.
Step 4: Palming
Preparing to Palm
The most important thing when palming is that you are not stressed. I recommend massaging your temples, face, shoulders, and the top of your head to bring good blood flow to the eyes and become as relaxed as possible.
Loosen your shoulders. Move your shoulders together in a rotating motion, forward and then back. Then rotate each shoulder separately, forward and back. The picture that the shoulder tip is moving the shoulder. Now tap on the tip of the shoulder with your opposite hand and say out loud, “Shoulder tip.” Moving the shoulders in a rotating motion increases blood circulation; as you repeat this exercise several times, your shoulders will feel lighter.
How to Palm
Now that you have prepared your body for palming sit somewhere comfortable. You need to have your elbows resting on pillows or on a tabletop with a pillow/pad so that your head is leaning neither forward nor backward. In other words, you are sitting comfortably in good posture. It is crucial that you are not holding your arms up, that you are not straining your neck by letting your head tilt back, and, most important that you never put any pressure on your face at all.
If you put your weight on anything, it is on your elbows. Rub your palms together to warm them and place them very gently over the eye orbits. The palms never touch the eyelids, but notice how your palms feel over your eyelids, over the entire eye orbit. Can you feel the warmth? Do your hands feel nurturing as they sit ever so lightly over your eye orbits? This is important. If you are stressed or angry, your palming session will not feel right. Repeat the exercises to prepare for palming or do some kind of activity that helps you to let go of the stress or the anger you-you are carrying.
