My doctor told me the vision in my right eye is pretty much fucked.
(Family and friends, don’t be alarmed. I got this.)
In the last six months, I had two surgeries on my right eye, and my vision is still one giant blur mark. I went to the doctor last week, and they tried to fit me for glasses to see if that would help my vision.
No such luck.
Then the doctor proceeded to say that it was unlikely my vision will ever return and that I have to make do with my left eye.
Such a travesty!?!?
For one, at this point, this is nothing new for me. I still can see perfectly out of my left eye, and the human brain is marvelous in how it adjusts and adapts to its circumstances so quickly.
More importantly, I intend to heal and restore my vision by myself — all through the power of using my mind.
Here’s the gist of how I plan on doing this.
This is essentially the process of “bending reality” — a topic I am fascinated with and have been studying like a madman for the past several years. In addition, this is exactly what it means to be a conscious creator of your reality and why I started this Medium publication.
Being a conscious creator means intentionally designing your life experience using the only things you ever have control of during this lifetime: your thoughts, your beliefs, your emotions, your physiology, and the very life energies that keep you alive and connected to the rest of creation — instead of just going with the flow of what the world throws at you and always believing everything you’re told.
The worst thing I can do is believe what the doctor said, react in fear, and resign to the notion that my eye will never return to normal. Accepting the idea that my eyesight will never improve will only program this message into my subconscious mind and sabotage my body’s natural inclination to heal on its own.
Below is the meditation process I devised that I plan on doing every morning for the foreseeable future to heal my eye.
Before starting this process, I will write a one or two-sentence statement on an index card that clearly captures the outcome I seek to manifest. It will be written in the third person as if someone else is telling my story or introducing me. My early draft is something like this:
Introducing: Anthony V. Lombardo — the man who healed and restored the vision in his right eye by bending reality and programming his subconscious mind to do so.
I will read this statement every night before bed and every morning when I wake up.
Here are some nuances to my process that help put me in the best state to get the most out of it:
Once I’m ready, I close my eyes and think of the people I love. I imagine being with them in some of my favorite places in the world. I start to breathe slowly while focusing on my heart, imagining my breath is flowing in and out of it.
This is my favorite way to get relaxed. Here are some others you can try.
Once I am relaxed, and in a loving state, I visualize my ultimate outcome as completely as possible. I visualize myself seeing perfectly with superhuman vision. I imagine feeling enamored by everything I see with my eyes. The world looks crisper, brighter, bolder, and more colorful than ever before.
To help amplify the fullness of the outcome, I think of some of the hardships I encountered throughout my journey, but in the end, seeing myself still triumphant. I allow my body and mind to take full pleasure that I endured this hero’s journey and came out of the other side better than ever.
I keep pumping up my emotional state by seeing myself celebrating the fact that my eyes are now healed. I imagine partying and having fun with the people in my life. I make the colors of everything bolder and brighter. There’s a twinkle and glimmer in my eye as I go about my day in awe over how beautiful the world looks. I also heighten my emotions by seeing myself teaching others this process to help them heal.
Every time I feel a burst of heightened emotions and clearly see the final outcome in my mind, I anchor it in further by squeezing my middle finger and thumb together. Doing this links this particular gesture and pressure point with these particular emotions and mental images in my subconscious.
Now, I affirm everything in my subconscious mind by asking it some lofty questions, which are positive affirmations reframed as “why” questions,” but much more powerful. For example, I’ll say aloud or in my mind:
I wrote an article about the power of lofty questions if you are interested in learning more about how this works.
One of the critical elements to influencing the subconscious mind is to program it to believe that what you desire has already happened. This is the “as-if” principle of manifesting, which requires you to feel the emotions of deep gratitude and joy as if you already received the blessing.
“When we experience the emotion of the event ahead of its possible occurrence, the body (as the unconscious mind) begins to respond as though the event is actually unfolding. ”
It takes practice to feel grateful for something before it happens, but this is where the magic happens when we aspire to create change in our physical reality.
So, how do we know we are genuinely feeling grateful?
In all of Dr. Joe’s meditations, he urges that you cannot leave your meditation chair as the same person who started the meditation, even in the tiniest way. Meaning energetically, some part of you has to have shifted from when you sat down — whether that’s in the way you think, feel, or what you believe.
Author and “bending reality” guru Vishen Lakhiani refers to this as exiting your meditation with the attitude that “the check is in the mail.” This is what this whole process is about: using the power of self-belief to change your life. If you don’t believe and expect it to happen, change cannot occur.
That’s why it’s critical you end each session with zero doubt it is going to happen.
I like to do this by affirming: “Thank you for this gift. Allow this or something better to happen,” while I am still in this heightened state of gratitude.
Then I end the meditation, immediately get up from my chair, and go about my day — paying attention to any signs from the Universe for this blessing to arrive.
I know I have my work cut out for me, but I also know it will happen. Wish me luck.
If you try this process for healing something in your life, I’d love to hear about it. Hit me on my contact page. I would love to support you on your healing journey in any way I can.
