I wore glasses for more than 26 years before I discovered that I could do something about it. I heard that people who spent a lot of time exercising could eventually recover their vision, however, coming from the western world I wanted something that produced results quickly.
In 1991 I was reading a book by John Grinder and Richard Bandler titled "Trance-formations, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and the structure of Hypnosis, 1981." In this book, on page 166, they talk about hypnotically regressing someone back to being 5 years old and of course having perfect eyesight. They brought him back to the present keeping the 5-year-old eyesight - and it worked! This was exciting news, so I started to look around for a hypnotist that I thought could do this for me. However, the Universe had other ideas, because I could not find anyone. therefore I started to search for other ways of improving my eyesight.
One of the things that set me thinking was the research done in connection with people who have multiple personality disorder (MPD). A Chicago psychiatrist Bennett Braun (1983) working with such patients took them to an optometrist and while hypnotized, the patients were able to switch from one personality to another.
The optometrist examined the vision of each personality. He was astounded to discover that vision shifted along with personality. Chriss Sizemore, the subject of the book and movie "Three faces of Eve," experienced different vision in different personalities. Far-sightedness, astigmatism, and colour blindness altered with the personalities.
There are actual measurable changes in the shape of the eyes and the pressure within them. People with multiple personalities also exhibit other dramatic changes like needing insulin in one personality and not in another, depending on whether the personality is diabetic or not.
All this leads to the conclusion that vision problems are not physical, they are a software problem, its in the mind. MPD's exhibit the changes very dramatically and rapidly. This research shatters the common belief that vision is fixed and deteriorates with age.
The final piece that made the difference was Pranic Healing. I met Master Choa Kok Sui in the early 1980's before he published his first book "The Ancient Art & Science of Pranic Healing, 1987" From reading his book and other healing practices I have developed my ability to work on the etheric energy level. Pranic Healing enables you to remove stagnant energy in the eyes and replace it with fresh energy. I started doing the Pranic Healing process every two hours for the first week. Initially I stumbled to work without glasses and worked until after lunch before putting on my glasses again. However after a week of doing this I no longer needed my glasses and I have not used them since.
I did not have 20/20 vision, but I was comfortable without my glasses and in the following days and weeks my vision kept extending further and further out. Since 1992 my vision has been normal and I do not need any correction at all.
I wanted to find a way to integrate the principles of NLP and develop a Vision Training program that is effective and that can be taught in a workshop format. This way many more people can benefit. I have presented Vision Training workshops around the world more than 20 years.
What you are about to start on is a journey of discovering your natural vision. It is my conviction that no one need wear lenses or other corrective devices. There is no one way that is particularly right. What matter is that you learn to relax and see again. See the world as it really is..
"My son has been using Leo’s exercises for the past couple of years and has, by doing so, gone from a point where we were practically accused of child abuse by his school nurse for ignoring his deteriorating eyesight and not getting him glasses, to the point now where he is learning to drive glasses free, which thoroughly vindicates our belief in Leo’s methods.
This is powerful stuff which should be taught in schools – rather than carting kids off to the opticians to condemn them to a life behind glasses. I urge everyone who wants to solve their eyesight problems to try Leo’s methods. Attending his workshop is by far the best way of doing this but, If this isn’t possible, Leo has written 3 books covering his methods"
7月14日第一次到工作坊時，子敬有 300 度的近視，眼睛疲勞沒有神采，我們用 Leo 教授的繩索練習法和會聚力練習法回家積極練習，到7月15日的傍晚，子敬的近視已經降到 100 度以下了！簡直不可思議！7月16日第二次到工作坊時，看著 Leo 用視力表來訓練餘下的 100 度近視和用那有趣的小丑圖來治療省光，我已經由當初的半信半疑變到信心滿滿加上感激不已！
"My daughter Rebecca was diagnosed with strabismus, astigmatism, and long-sightedness at the age of 18 months. She was wearing glasses all day, every day from the age of 21 months. We had many stressful years of patching, drops, and exhaustingly long visits to the opthamologist, only to have her scripts get stronger over time. Rebecca could not be without her glasses, and as soon as she took them off, her left eye would turn harshly in.
As she grew older, Rebecca began to become more and more self conscious and felt that she stood out because of her glasses. She is passionate about her dancing, and has been performing since the age of 3. However, at the time of each concert she would express concern that she was the only one wearing glasses, and that you could not see her beautiful make-up properly! Yet she could not take them off as her eye would very clearly turn.
We discussed her concerns often, and she even tried contact lenses at the age of 8, however she resigned herself to the fact that she would always have her glasses. Her optometrist kept her hopes up by explaining that there was much research being done, and that operations were always improving. Her father and I were not comfortable with the thought of her eyes being operated on, and we explained that when she was older, the decision would be hers to make.
One night Rebecca saw an ad for a current affairs show which was airing a segment about getting rid of your glasses. She excitedly told me about it, and we made a point of watching it. Following the show, I made contact and booked Rebecca in for a children's workshop with Leo.
After many months of eager anticipation, Rebecca and I attended Leo's Magic Eyes workshop. Leo was able to quickly assess which exercises would be most important for each child in attendance, and we set to work!
The results of these simple exercises were almost immediate. Rebecca was so keen she was trying them in the car on the way home! After only the first session, for the first time in over seven years, Rebecca could take her glasses off and her eye would not turn!
This was a very emotional time for all of us, and we cannot thank Leo enough for his help. We have now been working on the exercises for a few weeks, and not only is Rebecca's turn rarely evident, her near points and far points have improved for each eye, and she has gone from wearing +4.5 lenses to +3 lenses. We still have a ways to go, but we are very determined!
Leo's knowledge is invaluable, and we only wish we had come across the techniques years ago. Our great dream for others is that Leo's strategies become the first point of call for children experiencing difficulties with their eyes.
All we can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
P.S. - Rebecca is keenly passing on information about the next workshops to others with glasses, even her teacher at school!
