Abstract: Health coaches help you improve how you feel and see the world around you. Vision can improve. Originally published in Health Coach Training News, 2011 healthcoachtraining.com/newsletter/article043.shtml
In an interview on awakening to oneness, the Zen teacher Adyashanti defines enlightenment as "nothing more or nothing less than the perception of reality, to perceive what is, instead of to perceive what isn't." He continued, “All enlightenment is just seeing things the way they are, seeing things from an undistorted perception.” While not everyone is seeking enlightenment, most people would like to improve their vision both literally and figuratively. Health coaches are in a unique position to collaborate with people as they clarify the vision of what they would like their life to look like, as well as support their quest for improved visual health and eye function. By shining a light on the mental and physical barriers which contribute to distorted perceptions of the world, coaches can reinforce their client’s ability to achieve their goals and stick to their commitment to change.
Health coaches can ask questions like: "What do you want to see in your life, in your relationships, in your environment? If over night your vision improved, how would you know? What would you see outside your window? What would make life easier for your eyes? What would make it easier for your brain to interpret visual information? What would enable you to trust what you see? What complementary medicine approaches, eye exercises, self care or nutritional changes have you tried in your quest for better vision or more clarity in your life?
There is a Nicaraguan saying, "Eyes that see do not grow old." A growing segment of the population is asking, "How do we see better as we age rather than face progressive visual loss as the birthdays come and go?" They are also asking, "How do I maintain my quality of life by keeping up my ability to read and drive?"
These questions are what I was asking myself 10 years ago. Today at 60, my vision is better than it was when I was 40. It is probably better than when I was 10 and started wearing glasses, and, despite a diagnosis of Keratoconus, a genetic condition of the cornea. An expert in vision development, visual clarity, and eye health, I have used coaching and a number of integrative medicine approaches to improve my own vision and that of my clients. There are so many options for vision improvement at any age. As health coaches, we can be there as the client sorts out what will work best for them in their quest for healthy vision.
