According to modern science, the optic nerve transmits external visual clues and information from the eye to the brain. The retina of the eyes and the optic nerve are directly connected to the brain and central nervous system.  That system is considered the “command center” of the human body.
The eyes are relaying information from the outside world to the inside of the body.
BUT, the eyes are NOT a one-way portal.
As William Shakespeare said, “The eyes are the windows to your soul.”
They can reveal what is going on inside the body and what we are thinking and feeling as well.
Let’s take a deeper look at this…
Have you ever had a conversation with someone whose eyes were quickly darting all over the place? This reveals a nervous, unsettled and anxious person. They are trying to figure out if they are safe. They are certainly not relaxed or at ease.
The eyes can also let us know if someone’s nervous system and brain are exhausted.
The iris of a healthy person normally sits in the center (see picture on the left).
But someone that is feeling wiped out their iris may float upward, revealing a brain and nervous system that is physically spent. You can often see this condition in elders that are getting ready to exit the body, or in people suffering with Chronic Fatigue or Adrenal Fatigue. Their connection to the central nervous system, and its functions is growing weaker.
There is a direct relationship between the eyes and how they reveal the health of the body and mind.
For example… if you meet someone that has three whites showing at the top of their eyes (Upper Sanpaku in ancient medicine), you should immediately run the other way, lock your door, and call the police!
Below are two scary and great examples.
And, the eyes are only one of the vital areas on the outside of the body that can tell you what’s happening inside the body physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually.
This type of visual assessment is an ancient art that has stood the test of time.
As a health coach or wellness practitioner you can use this ancient healing knowledge to assess and create highly effective diet and lifestyle protocols to help your clients prevent and heal disease.
