This is Part 2 of 9 Part Series - Eye Twitching
Debbie Mandel, MA, author of “Addicted To Stress” is quoted in the article and calls the condition of eye twitching, blepharospasm. Blepharospam is the technical term for involuntary eye spasms. Some doctors may refer to this condition as a blinking disorder which may sound serious when in reality it is not. Some patients with Tourette’s Syndrome may experience more serious eye blinking disorders that require evaluation and treatment. Of course frequent uncontrollable blinking can result in vision disturbances and most of the time it is just plain annoying.
There are other causes of eye twitching beside stress but stress is one of the major ones. Corneal irritation or injury, fatigure, lack of sleep, eye strain or other neurological disorders can also cause eye twitching. For more information on this, please visit www.eyedoctorguide.com .
I find it amazing though in the work that I do with Unified Therapy ™ and what I’ve learned from Dr. Paul Canali of Evolutionay Healing Institute is that when a person is deep into conscious healing on the table, there is a rapid movement in the eyes. It is almost like it indicates the level of deep processing a person is doing in their mind when in this state.
In sleep, one of the levels that we all try to obtain at night is REM sleep (or rapid eye movement). Again, this indicates that we are deep into the slower brain waves and processing so much. It is where all the most restful, rejuvenating and restoring sleep we can get.
So eye twitching in itself may be a message that our body is sending to us that it is time to stop, rest and go within ourselves. Of course we can fail to listen to our bodies and seek out all types of medical conditions but ultimately, there is a high chance that it is going to come back to something that we have the power to influence. Just by stopping in our busy life and focusing on what we are feeling or experiencing in the body and noticing any emotions that may come up with that, we could be really offering some deep healing to ourselves. Of course, we have to allow ourselves to go there.
