Freedom from eye dis-eases!

According to Louise Hay, eyes represent the capacity to see clearly -past, present, and future.

Eye problems indicate that you do not like what you see in your life.

So, any way out?

At the age of 16, Aldous Huxley suffered from an eye disease which almost blinded him. He discovered the method of visual re-education evolved by Dr W.H. Bates and within two months he was reading without spectacles and without eyestrain.

In gratitude, Huxley wrote The Art of Seeing, in which he says:

It is, first of all, to repay a debt of gratitude that I have written this little book—gratitude to the pioneer of visual education, the late Dr. W. H. Bates, and to his disciple, Mrs. Margaret D. Corbett, to whose skill as a teacher I owe the improvement in my own vision.

A number of other books on visual education have been published—notably Dr. Bates's own, Perfect Sight Without Glasses (New York, 1920), Mrs. Corbett's How to Improve Your Eyes (Los Angeles, 1938) and The Improvement of Sight by Natural Methods, by C. S. Price, M.B.E., D.O. (London, 1934).

All have their merits; but in none (of those, at least, that I have read) has an attempt been made to do what I have tried to do in the present volume: namely, to correlate the methods of visual education with the findings of modern psychology and critical philosophy.

My purpose in making this correlation is to demonstrate the essential reasonableness of a method, which turns out to be nothing more nor less than the practical application to the problems of vision of certain theoretical principles, universally accepted as true.

Why, it may be asked, have orthodox ophthalmologists failed to make these applications of universally accepted principles? The answer is clear. Ever since ophthalmology became a science, its practitioners have been obsessively preoccupied with only one aspect of the total, complex process of seeing—the physiological. They have paid attention exclusively to eyes, not at all to the mind which makes use of the eyes to see with. I have been treated by men of the highest eminence in their profession; but never once did they so much as faintly hint that there might be a mental side to vision, or that there might be wrong ways of using the eyes and mind as well as right ways, unnatural and abnormal modes of visual functioning as well as natural and normal ones. After checking the acute infection in my eyes, which they did with the greatest skill, they gave me some artificial lenses and let me go. Whether I used my mind and be-spectacled eyes well or badly, and what might be the effect upon my vision of improper use, were to them, as to practically all other orthodox ophthalmologists, matters of perfect indifference. To Dr. Bates, on the contrary, these things were not matters of indifference; and because they were not, he worked out, through long years of experiment and clinical practice, his peculiar method of visual education. That this method was essentially sound, is proved by its efficacy.

My own case is in no way unique; thousands of other sufferers from defects of vision have benefited by following the simple rules of that Art of Seeing which we owe to Bates and his followers. To make this Art more widely known is the final purpose of the present volume.

Internal EASE is key to Dis-EASE FREE Life!

Every Soul is under some stress. The difference lies in how much you stress you CARRY over a period of time.

You start CARRYING stress when you do not EXPRESS yourself FULLY (in other words, you are suppressed). OR, you HOLD a negative emotion (Guilt/Resentment/Hatred) in reference to a person or an event. When a negative thought starts, your body tries to "deal" with it through a "sneeze" or an "itch". Over longer periods, this CARRIAGE leads to life-threatening dis-eases like cancer.

In "You Can Heal Your Life" Louise Hay said "We are each responsible for our own reality and dis-ease". She wrote:
When people come to me with a problem, I don’t care what it is—poor health, lack of money, unfulfilling relationships, or stifled creativity—there is only one thing I ever work on, and that is LOVING THE SELF. …
Loving the self, to me, begins with never ever criticizing ourselves for anything. Criticism locks us into the very pattern we are trying to change. Understanding and being gentle with ourselves helps us to move out of it.

She has extrapolated from "A Course in Miracles":
Whenever we are ill, we need to search our hearts to see who it is we need to forgive. The Course in Miracles says that “all dis-ease comes from a state of unforgiveness” and that “whenever we are ill, we need to look around to see who it is that we need to forgive."
I would add to that concept that the very person you find it hardest to forgive is the one YOU NEED TO LET GO OF THE MOST.
Forgiveness means giving up, letting go. It has nothing to do with condoning
behavior. It’s just letting the whole thing go.
Most people are aware of the LINK between "emotions" and "health", yet very few take advantage of it. The exponential rise of the Pharmaceutical Industry is the proof. Many doctors have discovered this LINK and recommend Alternate Healing Systems (which facilitate emotional cleansing) to their patients. May their tribe increase!

Da Vid, MD, Medical Director says in Cure for Cancer:

Dis-ease (cancer) is not something to be feared, but to be understood. The Good News is that the cure for cancer already exists! It exists within ourselves our cells). It is my understanding that as we grow in the understanding of ourselves (our cells), in our relationship with nature, in our appreciation and gratitude for life, and in the implementation of safe, effective and inexpensive wholistic protocols, we will individually and collectively realize and experience our Freedom from Dis-ease.

God Bless & Lots Of Healing!

Guided Relaxation Script

Guided Relaxation Script

Many Guided Meditation scripts are available, yet many teachers and students are not able to enjoy maximum advantage of this great relaxation and healing technique.

Kelly McGonigal, PhD, provides a script and some great tips:
  • Use your natural teaching voice, rather than an artificial “relaxing” voice.
  • Pause regularly. Leave space for students to shift their focus inward.
  • The script shouldn’t fill up the entire relaxation period, and will take about 7 minutes to read, with appropriate pauses throughout. Shorten this script for shorter relaxations, so that there is time for extended silence. The guided audio version has 2 minutes of silence near the end of the relaxation; in classes or private sessions this silence can be much longer.
  • Give students time to settle into a relaxation pose and quiet down before you begin leading them through this script.

Knowing in Whispers

Our inner guidance comes to us through our feelings and body wisdom first

Not through intellectual understanding

The intellect works best in service to our intuition, our inner guidance, soul, God or higher

Whichever term we choose for the spiritual energy that animates life.

~Christiane Northrup


The body has its own way of knowing

A knowing that has little to do with logic

And much to do with truth

Little to do with control

And much to do with acceptance

Little to do with division and analysis

And much to do with union.

Our Body - Decoding The Communication System

Whenever I care to carefully listen, my body speaks to me in mysterious ways!

Charlie Badenhop, the Seishindo Guru, states that at every moment in time your subconscious mind speaks to you through your body, in a language that is as refined, systematic, and complete as your verbal language.

This "somatic" language that your body communicates in forms the basis of the non-cognitive wisdom known as sixth sense, intuition, or "somatic intelligence." Becoming fluent in somatic language can help you to think less, yet know more.

Understanding the subtle yet systematic communication of the body can help you achieve breakthroughs in your personal health and well-being, as well as adding significant value to the existing abilities and skills you already manifest in your life.

The language of the somatic self is the pre-verbal communication that allows us to make meaning out of our experience prior to learning our native tongue. It is part of our mammalian consciousness, is intuitive and relational in nature, seems to direct us to join with other life, and it remains our primary meaning making language throughout the entire course of our lives.

This language forms the foundation of our memories, verbal communication, learned responses, and our ability to live and sustain ourselves. Much in the same way that words are systematically joined together in infinitely varied combinations, to form the content of our verbal language as used by our cognitive self, the various components of the building blocks of consciousness are systematically joined together in infinitely varied combinations by your somatic self, to form the language of your somatic self. This is a language of immediate experience as compared to verbal language being a communication of abstractions.

Verbal representations are an edited, convenient, synopsis of our somatic-emotional experience, and lead us to pigeon hole our experience as a discrete event in time. Having forgotten this we think that our verbal language is our experience. But in actuality our verbal language is one step removed form our actual experience. It is an abstract description or labeling of our experience.

Charlie Badenhop is the originator of Seishindo, which is a discipline that was designed to help people cultivate their ability to live in a generative, life-affirming manner, in order to more consistently live with passion, clarity, and commitment. Seishindo is a Japanese term which can be said to mean "the cultivation of a pure heart and simple mind" or "the cultivation of the whole self".
