Studying the Eye with University and Universal Medicine

by Cherise Holt, 31, Nurse, Australia

As a part of my University studies this week, I’ve been learning about the common visual disorders of the human eye. To understand the concepts, we begin by exploring the normal function – the anatomy and physiology – of the eye itself. From the delicate lid that supports and protects the eye from harm, to the way the eye is held and supported by the body to remain in shape, in place and in harmony with its surroundings and functions.

I learnt about the pupil, the black spot in the centre of the eye that we so often see change size – constrict and dilate – depending on the light that is around us and in our view. It was here that I learnt something totally amazing…

I had always thought of the pupil as not much more than a black spot in the centre of the eye and had never fully appreciated the fact that it is actually not a spot at all, but rather an opening that allows and receives light and information in, to be viewed at a deeper level within the eye, passing through and being focused by the lens, to be received at the retina, where the light is processed and the messages passed on to the brain.

Perhaps this sounds rather simple and common sense, but I personally had never fully appreciated the depth of our eyes in their physical function before.

Since beginning my other studies with Universal Medicine, I have also learnt how amazing it feels to have a connection with others and to meet someone with my eyes. I’ve been learning for myself what it means to observe life, others and situations from a place within me that’s knowing of who I am – my essence – and not from a judgement or by taking on external factors that aren’t in my control.

These simple teachings have confirmed to me that we have a moment-by-moment opportunity to not only ‘see’ whatever picture is presented before our eyes, but also to observe, allow and receive what is there to be seen, read and felt from the depths of our innermost beauty.

We live in the physicality of our human bodies in every moment of every day and can find ourselves ‘out of our bodies’ – perhaps in a rush, caught in our heads or making choices that disregard our bodies. But what I am also learning (and loving!) is the natural order and harmony our bodies are designed to work, move and be in, from the smallest detail and cell within.

There is much to appreciate about our bodies and the amazing way in which they go about their expressions, movements and functions, reminding me how crucial it is to support my own body in return, making choices that support it to be the most loving vehicle of expression that it can be.

  1. What I can feel is how our body is an apparatus of motion, yet its motion is always in response to what it receives and how it experiences that receiving. It feels eternally beautiful and genius.

  2. I love it when the physiology we learn matches the energetic truth that we know – that the eye is a receiver of light and not the projector of it. That is, we don’t look out to see the images we see, we receive them.

  3. Beautifully shared Cherise, there certainly is a richer and truer quality of life that can be lived when we are open to observing and reading the quality of movements in any situation, as we then are able to respond with greater love, be it a confirmation or a correction.

  4. In education we are taught to seek from the outer, our wisest teacher is the inner heart for the lies can never deceive the truth it feels.

  5. Thank you for expanding my appreciation of how our eyes function but also how it is through the choices that we make we can use our eyes to see the pictures that we are being presented with or we can choose to go deeper and read what is really happening.

  6. This makes me feel that looking in at our bodies as if through a microscope is like looking out through a telescope into the gloriously harmonious Universe. Perhaps they are a reflection of each other.

    1. Yes Richard indeed, and it would make sense then that our eyes serve to receive confirmation, of what we already can energetically feel, is in line with the vibration of our universality and what is not.

  7. It is true that our eyes ‘receive’ light and ‘receive’ what they see. In this way we can match the nature of our eyes by receiving the world and receiving people rather than ‘looking’ and imposing our judgments upon it and them. In this way we can support ourselves to stay present with ourselves and observe. What an amazing reflection our eyes give us in their nature.

  8. I loved this focus on how incredible just one part of our body is.. if we lived with that awareness and appreciation of our whole body, all of the time, it would be impossible to not to take care of it, to cherish and love it deeply.

    1. Absolutely it can be so easy to take the amazing way our body supports us for granted but there is so much that we can do to support it on a daily basis although for me it is often when there is a problem as I had recently with my eye that I really take notice and commit to taking more loving care of myself.
