Armoring of the Ocular Segment

Photo by Jesse Davis "Big baby eyes"

I introduced the concept of Reich's seven segments of armoring yesterday, and today I will begin to explore in more detail each one of these segments in treatment. Please keep in mind as you follow through these, that the application of these concepts and therapeutic methods in treatment is quite dynamic and unique to each individual case, and that these are only being offered as a general indication of the emotional content which is found within each of these segments. Also, the entry into this part of treatment with a patient is dependent on how solid of a foundation has already been established in terms of the basic application of the first two jurisdictions (Regimen and Medicine), so as not to create a chaotic situation. 

Taking a look at the first segment today, the ocular segment relates to the eyes and vision, as well as other physical aspects of the top of the head, such as tension in the forehead, or temples.

Dear  ,

Contemplation or meditation is about developing the sight of God. It can't be termed anything else. When we speak of "seeing" as a bodily organ, we are more often alluding to perception or proprioception, discerning the essence of a thing.

When I looked at the sunset in this image , above, I heard the sound of the waves and felt my bare feet in the black volcanic sand. I aimed my camera west at the cascading light of the mountains that surrounded Puerto Vallarta. I also felt culture shock. The image brings back that feeling of thawing from the cold, wet, rain of the west. I drove thousands of kilometres to arrive at the taking of this image that thawed my feelings of shock. When I put on my proprioceptive goggles, I might have discerned some feelings of grief and fear that were in me and in the image. You might relate to that image similarly, sensing my mood at the time or perhaps conjuring up a time when you felt similar feelings.

Vision or being "sighted" has so much less to do with "seeing" than it does with an epistemological event swathed with feelings that are soaked with impressions (feelings, functions and sensations) sourced both from inside and outside our bodies. Reality, as it lives in me, and in you, can be subjective (as in Kantian terms.) We can actually begin to develop an objective science of sight, so to speak, and render those sensed impressions into to a science of spirit: Rudolf Steiner's epistemology. Continue reading here...

Pink Eye
and The Ocular Block; Excavating the True Roots Of This Physical Manifestation

Conjunctivitis is an infection of the conjunctiva, the mucous membrane that covers the front of the eye and lines the inside of the eyelids. Conjunctivitis is popularly known as 'pinkeye' and can be triggered by a cold or an allergy; but if we dig a little deeper we can discern the other sources of irritation in the eye; for example, the emotional root.

As with every physical symptom, there is an emotional etiology. Pink eye is no exception. A condition is not entirely remedied until it is addressed on the mental sphere, not just on the physical level. The meaning is behind it's expression or you risk a cyclical reinfection. Those that manifest pink eye symptoms will be suppressing the following state of mind as per Michael J. Lincoln's book, "Messages From The Body."

EYE PROBLEMS IN CHILDREN

"I don't wanna know!" They are harm-alarmed about what is happening in their family. They are afraid of the implications and ramifications, and they are tending to use their imagination to conjure up the worst-case scenario. They are not wanting to see what is going on in the family and in their life, because it's too overwhelming for them. It occurs when there are chronic or situational stresses happening in their family.
