I shut my eyes in order to see. ~ Paul Gauguin
As a healer I see energy better with my eyes closed. It’s probably because I feel energy first. Then an image forms in my mind of what color the energy is, what shape it is, where in the body, in the world or in the universe it is held or how it’s flowing.
When I close my eyes I see energy patterns that I don’t perceive as clearly when my eyes are open and I am looking at the more tangible world.
I prefer to do energy work on the phone because I can get to the core of an issue faster if I am not distracted by my client’s physical presence. Of course I understand some people prefer human contact and I do give my local clients face to face appointments. 🙂 So, like Gauguin, I end up “shutting my eyes to see” when I work with someone in my office.
Also with my eyes closed I perceive vibrations more easily so it’s easier to detect the presence of angels, guides and guardians and to decipher their messages. And I find that after 22 years of daily meditation, the habit of closing or half-closing my eyes serves s an anchor and brings me instant peace. It quietens my mind chatter and helps me suspend judgement.
Thank you @Sguide for the inspiration!
