We pretty much use our eyes every single second of the day, that is of course unless we are sleeping, so I think most people would agree they are pretty important to us! Our eyes start taking in information from the minute we are born and during the first 2 -3 years they learn to recognise every conceivable shape, colour and shade. It is advised that we have our eyes tested every 2 years and this is regardless of whether we feel our vision has changed or not. Even people who have had laser eye surgery should still get regular checkups to ensure their eyes are healthy. We only get one pair of eyes and we should look after them. As an Optometrist I regularly get asked certain things about the eyes and it surprises me just how much bad information there is out there. During this post I am going to list my top 5 things that people get wrong about their eye’s so here goes!

Everybody has issues that they have to work through. And for some of those things, we’d like help working through them. Some decide to work through their difficulties with a therapist.

Subliminal affirmation software are what we refer to as computer programs that create either a visual or audio representation of your affirmations. The visual affirmations are displayed using a screen saver like tool, the only difference is that you don’t see the messages flashing on the screen because it happens too fast for your conscious mind to react to it. Your unconscious, on the other hand, has no problem whatsoever with the speed and takes it in just like anything else it is registering at the time.

Subliminal affirmation software is a computer program you use to create subliminal affirmations for your own use. You may come across two distinct forms of affirmations utilizing subliminal technology.The 1st is visual, where the application displays the message so rapidly that you simply don’t see it, even although your unconscious perceives it. In the second case, the software creates a sound file which is usually an mp3 file that you can put on your ipod and listen to it whenever you choose.

Affirmations for Self Talk

Affirmations are powerful and if you get them right, they are an invaluable tool for self improvement. Yet, if it were so easy then why don’t we all just affirm our dreams and realize them? Well, one of the reasons is that we are a bit more sophisticated and evolved than most of the personal development gurus would want you to think. Just because you repeat a positive phrase to yourself over and over does not mean you actually believe it.
