"You're all eyes!"
I thought back: Grandma Caroline reads me The Book of Revelation. Some beings were "full of eyes." I laughed remembering that "loosing the seven seals" was, for me, a book (not scroll) opening. Seven shiny grey-black sea lions lunged out of a book clothed in golden light. They wobbled over giant slippery rocks, plunging themselves joyously into a grey-green ocean! My wondering and wandering child-mind was at work and play.
My Mom continued, "It's an expression. When someone says "all eyes," they mean a person's eyes light up with delight when they see someone or something they love."
I immediately flashed to watching horses graze and young foals growing strong. Getting my first kitten, a ball of furry white snow, was a happy event. We nicknamed her "little eyes." Multicolored Collies owned by friends romped in open fields, running with sheer joy of being alive. Yes, "All Eyes!" Zen and Now
Coming back into the present, I recently asked friends to help with my skin healing, pre and post surgery. Debra Basham used guided imagery with me, *Imagine Healing and Surgical Support Techniques. I was an example in a teaching seminar for students. During the process, Debra asked me what color I "saw" in my imagination.
"I see a deep rose pink, deeper than candy pink." The color kept repeating in my mind, pure and bright. I felt warm, relaxed, and happy.
After the break, when I re-entered the room, on the back of a chair was a deep rose prayer shawl! I pointed it out to Debra.
"Where did this come from?"
"It was here all along"
"I didn't see it!"
"You picked up the color intuitively!"
The next part of the training held a space for quite reflection. I sat comfortably in a chair, students watching intently. I wondered what I would wrap around myself. I had brought a cheetah patterned light blanket. I decided to drape the chair with this and wear the neon rose colored prayer shawl around my head and shoulders! During Debra's dialogue with me, at one point, the shawl slipped down over my face by itself, forming a thin translucent veil! I spoke spontaneously:
** "In Biblical days, 'go into your closet and pray,' means you draped your prayer robe down over your face. This brought the person into a state of meditation, free from the outside world. They didn't have closets in desert regions! The fringe on the edges of your shawl represent the borders between Heaven and Earth, walking the edge."
Debra lent me her shawl.
At home after the seminar, I spread out the color and noted (surprise) Angel Fish plus geometric patterns. I felt deep connection to the ocean here. When I photographed the shawl, more sacred color appeared. Where did the bright purple glow come from? The purple is invisible to the naked eye.
Later Debra awarded me the shawl! I keep it draped in my home to absorb and emit healing color "day and light" for myself and others
Healing with Energy
Several months after skin healing surgery, I worked with Edi on some mutual meditations. In one of these, I sat in a Cheetah blanketed chair im my home and draped myself in my bright rose prayer shawl. Edi and I talked freely. One time I saw beams of light around Edi's right shoulder, "your angel" in ice blue and gold color.
Another time Edi said, "Orb" and a beautiful rich red-blue radiant purple appeared around the left side of her face, like a halo. I told Edi how Joanna, one of the angels I have come to know, is around me lately, guiding me. "What is she trying to tell me?
At that moment, the prayer shawl again slipped down over my face like a veil of light, as if Joanna had lifted the shawl up with her hands and placed it lightly down. I felt transported to Biblical Days!
Images of eyes next appeared in my imaginative inner vision screen! First I saw our Tomcat's eyes, both eyes clear and bright, shiny and green after surgical recovery. More eyes appeared: lioness, cheetah, leopard, wolf, dog, and horse. I "saw" some noses and markings along with the eyes, clarifying their animal contributors. The pairs of eyes faded from one into another like a colored slideshow. Some images were painted, some realistic, all expressive! Then human eyes came into focus, some in pairs and some single eyes. These eyes were large and bright with clear blue or green iris. I talked with Edi about these non-physical eyes, intuitive teachers. I painted a picture in my imagination of all the bright inquisitive healing visionary eyes!
I felt immense clearing and letting go of backpacks of emotional baggage. Traveling light and free felt good as enjoyed a mountain climb in the clear air with sun and blue sky....gratitude.
Clear Vision Over Distance
*** A few months later, suddenly one day, I felt something slip into my left eye. They eye watered and reddened. But it got worse and painful as the day unfolded. I fretted, but relaxed into knowing Beth had booked a distance healing Reflexology session with me for late night while resting. I looked forward to the treatment.
**** "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone," Elaine Collier, Reiki Master
Preparing for Beth's distance treatment, I thought about my daughter, Nell, giving me a distance healing session some months ago. I marveled at Nell's guidance and intuition with insight into conditions and issues I had not even spoken out loud. With Nell's treatment, I saw again a Pacific Ocean beach and picked up seashells in my imagination (smile). These treatments were received in total silence, not over the phone.
Just as with Nell's session, I did not brief Beth in advance about how I felt that day. I had some reflexology charts and guidelines. I freed myself from looking at them or reading about Reflexology. I went into the session as a white covered open book with blank pages.
In silence, at the Reflexology appointment time, I felt strong energy in the balls of my feet. The pleasant gentle electric current spread upwards and through the entire body as the qi (energy) flows and circulates in Tai Chi practice or acupuncture treatments. The warm tingling feeling went straight up into my left eye and stayed there for quite awhile! During and after the session, I felt quite relaxed and ready to sleep. I slept all night, free of pain!
The next morning, friend Mildred called in to chat. I told her about my eye irritation.
"The same thing happened to me!"
"You called at just the right time!"
Mildred told me about a product called Refresh Plus sterile preservative free single use eye drops, an over the counter product recommended by physicians and pharmacists. I got some! By bed time my eye was near normal. The next morning I kept my appointment with a qualified eye doctor just to check everything. The cause, "dry eye." The very next morning, "all normal!" Again, gratitude....
Eye Energy Exercise
I remembered an eye qigong exercise. This can be used anytime of day or night or after Tai Chi/Qigong practice. When eyes are strained from reading, computer or fatigue, or to enjoy a moment of quiet, rub hands together until warm. Place hands over both eyes but not touching eyes. Rest a few minutes and relax. Feel loving warmth entering your eyes. Intend your eyes are bright, alert, and clear. Qi (energy) can be sent to other areas needing healing with radiance flowing from Lao Gong point (Pericardium 8) centers of both palms, a Yin (nourishing) point.
Healing blends Faith with Intuition, Trust and Action.
