• Eye Exercises

    According to the yogis, about 50% of the bioenergy spent on the vital activity of the whole body is on eyes. Daily training in the art of vision is absolutely necessary to prevent such deviations in vision, which are subject to almost any eye, no matter how good his sight. Therefore, even yogis with excellent eyesight perform various options for fixing the sight( Trataka).

    It is widely believed that in old age it does not make sense to undertake any attempts to restore vision with the help of exercises.

    But it's not. Naturally, much more labor will have to be spent than in earlier years, and improvements are slower. But with hard training comes necessarily.

    Deficiency of focus is the most common visual impairment - an inevitable consequence of systematically misusing eyes. The following exercises give the necessary training for the straight, oblique and ring muscles, and, therefore, maintain the elasticity of the eyeball and the lens. As a consequence, either normal vision is protected from spoilage, or the spoiled one is restored to normal. In this and the whole secret of the beneficial effects of eye exercises.

    Yoga exercises for the eyes contribute to the restoration of normal vision, and regardless of the nature of the existing violations - myopia or farsightedness. Success depends on the will of the practitioner and the efforts he makes. And normal, healthy vision, these exercises not only preserve and maintain, but also improve and develop. For those who do these exercises from their youth, they will never need glasses. Weak eyes after a few weeks of training are fully restored, because, as Dr. Josephine Jackson says in her book, "We outwit our nerves," the human body adapts to the demands placed on it. Yogam this truth is known since time immemorial.

    Exercises for the eyes consist mainly in fixing the look at different points and some movements with eyeballs and eyelids. If you do these simple exercises for several minutes every day, you will be surprised at the progress you will achieve. And there is nothing miraculous and surprising in this, because the organs are strengthened, performing their own functions, and not due to the fact that these functions perform for them something else( for example, glasses or some other prosthesis).We repeat that the age does not matter.

    Exercises for the eyes help when the eyes are stressed and tired from work or, conversely, when they are excessively relaxed due to a lack of it. Exercise strengthens the eye muscles, reduces the headache, which is often the result of fatigue and eye strain, give the eyes clarity and shine, they work generally fortifying. Exercise should be done not only regularly, but also at every opportunity.

    These exercises, like all other yoga exercises, need to be done not mechanically or mechanically, but consciously, with full concentration of attention and will, with an unshakable belief in success. Only in this case they will prove to be really useful. To achieve this, performing exercises, it is advisable to apply self-hypnosis. We recommend the following mantras:

    a) Concentration Mantras:

    1. My in my eyes( the main mantra).

    2. I am completely calm and unperturbed.

    3. The eyelids are perfectly calm and free.

    4. The look is calm, free and clear.

    b) Target mantras for vision improvement:

    1. I look easily and see clearly and distinctly.

    2. Eyes all see clearly and sharply.

    3. The eyeground is pleasantly warm.

    4. The eyeground is well supplied with blood.

    5. Blood well washes the fundus.

    While doing these or other exercises, constantly contemplate the inner meaning of these mantras.

    Exercises for the eyes are best performed twice a day. Fixation of the sight on the tip of the nose, on the interbroovent interval, different movements with the eyes are best done in the morning and in the afternoon. Fixation on a candle flame is best done in the evening. Exercises for resting vision and alternately fixing on the tip of the finger, on the tip of the

    nose and on the horizon can be practiced at any time. When practicing twice a day, it is enough to take 10 minutes each time. However, if you have the time, you can do it longer and more often with great benefit. Exercises should be done only as long as they are carried out easily;you can not bring yourself to fatigue, because overstrain is the enemy of the psyche and the eyes.

    And one more important remark to the performance of exercises: it is necessary to maintain the clarity of consciousness and perception, do not lose interest in the exercises and avoid glazing of the look. An indication of compliance with all these conditions will be a clear vision of the objects that will look at each moment of movement and rotation of the eyes.
