I was reading through Nancy’s blog the morning of the 3rd, and something *clicked* (her blog can be found from the Outlook Insight link on the blogroll under ‘Vision Blogs” and then ‘Nancy’, most recent posts are on pg 12). She was describing her experience from her latest Alexander Technique lesson. Later in the day I was doing some Snellen work indoors and my attnetion simply shifted to the top of my head (the “attic” as described by Missy Vineyard, see Nancy’s blog for more info), and then my vision cleared to 10/20, and almost 10/15. I was able to keep doing this throuout the day as long as I would simply keep my attention at the top of my head. As a reference, before my attention shifted, I was only able to read 10/100 very clearly, sometimes 10/70. I’ve tried forcing this attention shift many times in the past with Eyebody and Open Focus, etc, but finally today I was able to feel a difference in having my true attention shift, without effort of course! I wasn’t doing anything else, the only thing that changed when my vision cleared was the location of my awareness. Mark825 has some recent posts about using Open Focus as well and has been able to clear quite significantly as well. Fascinating stuff!
The other thing I wanted to report is that today I saw a true universal swing for the first time! It was so dramatic! I thought I had experienced it before, until I saw what I did today. At the very least this was the strongest universal swing I’ve ever seen. My husband and I were watching a show (and I never wear glasses if I watch TV), and then my attnetion shifted like I described above. I wasn’t really paying attention to the shift in awareness but then I noticed that the TV image, the whole thing was moving side to side. It was so dramatic I actually thought it was the TV. So I turned to my husband and I asked him if he saw that, and he said no! But then I was “looking” for it when I turned back to the TV, and it was gone… but it was pretty cool, and I hope that I am able to see it again sometime.
