Improve Your Vision with Deepak Chopra's Eye Exercises








These eye exercises are taken from Dr. Chopra's audio tape set Magical Mind. Magical Body.  Research shows that what we take in through our sight profoundly influences our physiology, i.e. heart rate, blood pressure, hormones, etc. Enhanced sensory perception can result in improvement in memory, creativity, attention span, and learning ability. The following procedures are designed to improve vision, the sense of color perception and access different information in consciousness.

Do everyday for 5 to 6 minutes.

Never go to a point of strain or fatigue.

Rest for 10 seconds in between exercises by closing eyes.

Do with corrective lenses removed.

Exercise to increase sensitivity to light by stimulating the rods and cones of the retina which are responsible for light perception. With eyes closed, look in the direction of the sun or a full spectrum light for 15 to 20 seconds.

Exercise to improve color perception, to make colors more vibrant and lively by stimulating cones for color perception. This exercise of watching the colors in the quantum mechanical body has a spontaneous healing effect. With eyes closed, look in the direction of the sun or a full spectrum light for 15 to 20 seconds. With eyes still closed, massage the eyeballs with the finger tips for another 15 to 20 seconds. Continuing to keep eyes closed gently turn the head away from the sun and back until the whole range of the color spectrum is exposed.

Exercise to prevent or decrease rigidity in the lens, ie decrease of fluid in the lens such as in cataracts. This exercise improves flexibility, pliability, and elasticity to the lens. Focusing - To change the focal length of the lens & improve the internal muscles of the eyeballs, look at an object up close and then at a distance. For example look at your hand 6 inches from your face and then look at an object on the horizon. Repeat this exercise for 15 times without straining.

Distant reading - Pin up on the wall some reading matter and every day move back a little bit to read it.

Close reading - Every day move up a little bit to read the pin-up on the wall.

Exercise to tone the eyelids - Blink eyelids hard and rapidly for 30 seconds.

Exercises using matras or fixed positions of the eye to strengthen the extra-ocular muscles (external muscles of the eyeball which are responsible for eye movement and coordination). This exercise allows us to access different information in consciousness. Holding these fixed positions increases brain wave coherence and strengthens memory, learning ability, increases attention span; all of which lead to a more stable physiology.



Holding the head up, looking straight ahead:


Look up and to the left. Hold this fixed position for 15 seconds. This exercise strengthens the ability of visual recall and is spontaneously made when we want to recall a visual memory.

Look down and to the left. Hold this fixed position for 15 seconds. This movement accesses auditory memory and is spontaneously made when we want to recall a musical tune.

Look up and to the right. Hold this fixed position for 15 seconds. This movement accesses the ability to create new visual forms.

Look down and to the right. Hold this fixed position for 15 seconds. This movement accesses kinesthetic recall and is spontaneously made when we want to recall an experience of touch.

Look to the directly to the right. Hold this fixed position for 15 seconds. This movement accesses the ability to create new sound forms.

Look down to the end of the nose. Hold this fixed position for 15 seconds. This movement accesses the ability to strengthen olfactory sense.

Look down toward the tongue. Hold this fixed position for 15 seconds. This movement accesses the ability to strengthen gustatory senses.

Look upward and inward trying to look at the space between the eyebrows. Hold this position for 15 seconds. This movement accesses the ability to heighten intuition.
