By Joana Garcia-Natural Vision Educator-Bates Method

The Bates Method, a method for recovering the vision created by Dr. WH Bates in the United States almost one hundred years ago and originally called cone method “Visual Training or Natural Vision Improvement”. The ophthalmologist found that the view is not constant, ie that fluctuates with the physical and emotional state of the person. After much research, he designed an effective educational process which is actually a holistic discipline that has already helped solve visual problems of millions of people worldwide.

On which it is based?

Bates realized that people who had vision problems, eye used differently, noted especially the eyes (gaze) is not moved, had excessive strain on the extraocular muscles and also lacked centralization. The three basic principles are:

1. Movement
An eye that looks good is an eye that moves, because this is the nature of the eye. The normal eye moves continuously, making the so-called saccades, which are very rapid involuntary. They can become of the order of 60 mov / sg. If these movements ralentitzan, lose sharpness, increase the blur.
2 Relaxation
To make all these movements, the eye has to be relaxed. Are two functions that feed. No relaxation, there is not enough movement and vice versa. Today with the abusive use we make of electronic devices (computers, mobile phones, TV, etc.), the eyes are overworked and do not relax. We think that when we go to bed will relax, but it is not. We must put consciousness and will in relaxation.
3 Centralization
The eye has ability to see clearly only in a very small place in the retina, the fovea centralis. When you focus on something that is in line with the fovea, we see this thing or part thereof be clearly and is lol we call centralized view. Everything that projects outside the fovea, will blur and is what is called peripheral vision. The perception of both views, central and peripheral simultaneously is a symptom of good use of the eyes.

Practical tips for using your eyes naturally

  1. Blinking: The simple fact blinking often is a great habit to keep the eyes hydrated and avoid the “fixation”. It needs to be gentle flicker, like the beating of the wings of a butterfly, so if we put the fingertips to the temples, we have to notice any movement. The flashing is produced only by the muscles of the eyelids.
  2. Perception of the periphery. Whenever we are focusing on something, we can perceive this sharper than the rest thing, but equally, we are able to capture with our peripheral vision all around there though we can not see much detail. This ability of our vision is critical to keep your eyes healthy. Consists to keep in mind all of our visual field in a hierarchical manner, ie, seeing what I’m sharper focus and blur the rest.
  3. Perception of the periphery in motion. It is the same principle as before, but instead of perceiving the periphery statically, perceive when we are in motion. If we are present, we can grasp like environment who moves and not us. Very easy to perceive when going by car or train, but also when we walk, or just when we make head movements. All this greatly enriches the visual perception and is attractive to look at things and details. In addition, retrains the brain to expand their visual records.
  4. Relaxation: Fundamental to capture all we talked about. We always have to have relaxed eyes and relearn this requires will and perseverance. We cover the eyes with his hands and rest in darkness and warmth they provide. Do this as many times a day as you feel that your eyes need.

I’m Doula, ACCOMPANIED the families decide what THEM. I love what I do and it is a privilege to accompany families emotionally at this important moment … .Ojalá had known before the existence of doulas!

 What is a doula?
We are women, mostly mothers, who accompany other women on their way to motherhood. Our fundamental task is to provide emotional support during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.
Although doulas do not yet have an academic background regulated, we do have specific training that covers basic knowledge on physiology of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum …
Doulas arise, along with other support groups to regain the support network for women, to recover the reality of motherhood as a life crisis in the life of a woman, and reclaim the space and proper position.

From the full and absolute respect the wishes and choices made by the family …
… Accompanied during pregnancy, birth planning and preparations. Enhance be aware of the changes taking place, listen to questions and concerns of the mother and family.
… Accompany the requirements and needs of parents at the time of delivery.

Dear Caroline: There have been many times I’ve thought of you after the birth of Sofia. And I always come to the same conclusion. Without you I would not have succeeded. You will make nine months. And it was much more. Your work was impeccable. You know at all times what I wanted you anticipated every need. You were an ally in the fight against my ego, myself, against my fears. Did not let me down, but let me win. Your presence was reassuring. The experience has inspired. It has changed my life. I can never express in words the gratitude I have for you. Thank You.

Hello we are Vanessa and Freddy. Months ago we decided to hire a doula and Caroline as experience has been and is being great. We told you that: We return back, we are in the 26th week of pregnancy. So far we are going to classes antepartum where we receive concrete information on pregnancy and lactation, but little or no emotional level. Emotional And we do not mean only the famous postpartum depression if not how to manage our new family. One day we attended a talk by Caroline on its role as a doula and 10 minutes we knew we were going to hire. Suddenly we find answers to questions like How am I going to tell my mother and my mother’s mother now am I? (Something that oddly uneasy all pregnant women in that room) or What is my role as a father in a home? These responses were realistic, emotionally specific and based on years of experience.
Now, just one month ago was born our first and precious daughter, Vega. During this time our lives have changed a lot but thanks to the support of Caroline are directing as we want and above all are enjoying our daughter.

In Doula MakestheDifference by Nugent, published in Mothering Magazine, March-April1998 – Scientific studies have shown that emotional support provided by the doula, translates into results on the development of important labor as:

During labor and birth:
reduction of cesarean rate by 50%.
reducing the duration of labor by 25%.
reduction in epidural requests 60%.
30% reduction in use of analgesia.
40% reduction in the use of forceps.

During the post-partum women who had the support of a doula six weeks after childbirth:
showed less anxiety and postpartum depression.
showed more confidence with your baby.
greater satisfaction (71% of cases compared with 30% of the cases studied did not have the presence of a doula).
greater probability of successful feeding (52% vs. 29%).

As says the Psychologist Anne Wilson Shaeft the first and most important is the relationship we have with ourselves, we live with our own privacy, with the deepest part of our being. If it flows, it makes sense and is alive all all that comes later, so will be

If the meaning of life can not be understood but is living it turns out that the most important thing for a human being is to follow a process of personal evolution that leads him to build, every day more solidly, the spiritual bond that will keep you connected its depth and that will make all other relationships are merely a way to reinforce him.

We think that happiness lies in the harmony of the couple and all the things around us and this is true but the focus is often incorrect because the look is not going to be in but in reverse. It is not the environment or what happens outside what makes our life is harmonious. Our life will be more or less harmonious as how we relate to ourselves, that is, depending on how we live our spirituality.

Make it clear that when we speak of spirituality do not talk about religion. Religiosity is living spirituality follow certain traditions and certain dogmas. The spirituality to which we refer is the fact freely live the feeling of being, take a deep awareness and feed. When this is clear, change all positions and evidently also the order and priority in relationships.

Putting the experience of spirituality in the first place does not mean ceasing to be responsible and stop being involved with the family or people. Quite the contrary. Life is relationship therefore all relationships that have appeared throughout life are seen as a gift, an opportunity to deepen this process is to live, even those that do not seem very satisfactory and we have produced pain .

The primary relationship with our Higher Power requires intimacy and this implies honesty, respect and honor for us. When our primary relationship is rooted in our spirituality and live here, we do not allow our relationships or family dictate our lives but become opportunities to participate.

Currently most relationships are aimed at filling that existential emptiness that I mean that we start from the verb “need”. This need puts us in a constant state of expectation and spend another responsibility for your satisfaction.

The relationships above all should be construides from verbs accompany, sharing, joint participation in the process of maturing and enjoy the adventure.

Some guidelines that promote good relations

  • The more focused we are on us, the better the relationships but this does not mean at all self-centered.
  • Good relationships honestly ask both with regard to our needs and so we are willing to give or share. Being honest involves responsibility for our behavior and allow others to be responsible for his.
  • If we understand the relationship as a process to live and evolve we must respect the time of others and their state of receptivity if necessary. No we can use to throw that bothers us or point out as the reason for our discomfort.
  • We have to remember regularly exist independently of the others and that each follows its own path. what
  • We can not control love. Love is a gift that comes to us and no one is obligated to give it to us.
  • If we respect our feelings and our process know to respect the feelings and the process of others.
  • No need to work the relationship because it would mean control. What we have to do is focus on our own work and the relationship will find its place.
  • A living relationship we can not treat mechanically. When we realize that we are not present, we did not feel in the body, it is absurd to continue a conversation. If we notice that the other passes the same situation is the same. Month leave it for a time when everyone is receptive.
  • No melodramatic scene is positive. It is better to give a break to process what is happening before answering or making decisions.

Relationships are processes. They have their own pace and eventually progress to where it belongs.

The first week of September, we had the possibility of organizing a small Casal mornings with children between 5 and 10 years.

Input we want to thank the parents who have entrusted us with their children with whom we have shared moments creative, relaxed and fun.

For our part, we would have to say that even we have been instructive, since which an adult can learn from the transparency of a child is that it leaves us speechless. Its purity permeates the air and when we tune them and allow us to communicate using a friendly and common language all the magic of relationships made possible.

As the result was fully satisfactory both for us and for the kids as for parents, we have decided that the course we will be proposing other activities which may be weekly or monthly.

Our intention is to go signaling a ride, full of endless possibilities, because they can discover their resources and be able to draw your particular way. Our idea is to make them participate in Dynamics-focused attention to the body language, to the attention of the own feeling and attention to the moment to keep alive and active across the network of potentialities that have.

We understand that our proposal is not a therapy group but a series of dynamics of intent which have as a result a therapeutic outcome.
