Dear Steve: I am 39 years old
and have had trouble with cataracts fro the last 16
years. The doctors don't know the cause, but they recommend
surgery. It's tough because of possible complications.
The cataracts started getting worse about 9 years ago
when I got married. I have been divorced for 3 years
now, and they just started getting worse again recently.
I have tried all sorts of naturopathic remedies to solve
the problem, but with little success. I am also getting
headaches. I don't know if they are related to the eye
problems or not since I've been having headaches since
I was around 13 years old. I am gradually going blind,
but surgery is a last resort. I'd like to see where

Dear Jennifer: It is not up
to me to say whether or not to go for the surgery. When
we are ready to heal, we DO heal, or at the very least,
the right treatment presents itself. By letting go of
the stressors specific to your eyes, I have faith that
you will avail yourself of the right treatment. Additionally,
without the stressors, a treatment that didn't work
in the past, may work once the energy to that part of
the body is opened. The eyes relate to seeing things,
or in your case NOT seeing things. Specifically, I get
the impression that you are NOT supposed to see things
perhaps a history of others keeping secrets from you,
perhaps a "truth" that was too painful to
see. You may feel or fear that others will "pull
the wool over your eyes." Because there was a related
problem starting around puberty, it may have to do with
sexual issues. I feel that your husband, early in the
relationship, was attracted to other women, and that
you didn't want to or "weren't supposed to see"
that. (This was later confirmed with Jennifer). .I am
also picking up a possible separation between your parents
at an early age. (Dad actually declined a great career
opportunity to stay at home with the family, especially
Jennifer). He did a good job of covering up his sadness.
You weren't "supposed to" see his pain because
that would have led to guilt and even more sadness.
The possible trigger presently could have to do with
you opening up again to more intimate relationships,
but the cellular fear of seeing things you "aren't
supposed to" creates the tension around the eyes.
(This was also confirmed, as Jennifer has recently been
interested in getting into a deeper relationship with
Let yourself off the hook for wanting
love and honesty, and for wanting to trust your OWN
perceptions, even though others would have you mistrust
those perceptions. The past does NOT have to re-manifest
itself in the present or future!
Positive Thought To Manifest:
I safely acknowledge my truth. And I allow others to
feel safe with that.
Let others see your truth, Steve
