damon here with an NLP gym. Eye movement
integration before i get into that if you haven’t already please click
Subscribe here now right there to this YouTube channel and that way you’ll get
these videos on a regular basis and I’ll talk a little bit more about that at the
end into the video so eye movement integration i’m not going to go into too
much about with the theory is behind why it works other than just to say that when you
your I’ve heard this I’m not sure if it’s true that your eyes
are brain tissue that is exposed not sure if that’s true but it sounds
pretty cool and I do know that when you move your
eyes around you’re accessing different parts of your
brain when you’re in a stuck state or you’re in a problem state or you’re
focused on a problem this is a good time to use eye movement
integration and it can also be used for phobias it can use for really intense
problems but you probably want to get help from someone to use it in no
situation so just for trying this out i would pick a problem not something that
is a level 10 problem ten being like your worst problem in the
world but something that place in your life where you feel stuck or some sort
of problem that you’ve been dealing with when you were focused on a problem or
focused on us or you’re a stuck state it is a form of focus and when you think
focus it means you know your your eyes are sort of stuck on one thing and your
your only focus is that problem and that is actually part of the problem you’re not seeing outside of the problem
you’re not seeing outside of this stuck state because you’re focused on it and a
lot of times we do this because we’re trying to solve the problem or were
afraid of it were failing fear and anxiety and it’s that fear and anxiety
that makes us keep our eyes on that problem and we feel stuck on that so eye movement integration is a way of
unsticking that it’s a way of giving you access to the resources that you’re not
having access to and it’s a way of just giving you some
space and some distance from you and the problem and just unsticking you so think about a problem and what you’re
going to do and I hope you can see my eye movements in this you’re going to
run your eyes and you can do this you can start clockwise or counterclockwise
it doesn’t matter which way you start but you start rolling your eyes all the
way around the edges of your eye sockets and you want to do this while your eyes
are open and you’re just rolling them around so as you do this think about the
stuck state and just keep thinking about the stuck state of the problem that
you’re in and roll them around five to seven times then reverse direction roll them back around the other way
tracing your eye sockets rolling around rolling around now this could get this could make you a
little bit dizzy so you want I prefer to do this sitting down some people think
it’s better if you stand up if you’re standing up you may want to lean against a wall or
something just something that are you can put your hand on a piece of
furniture just some way to steady yourself so you don’t fall over on so
you run in the opposite direction find the seven times and then you’re
gonna run your eyes and a figure-eight that like a figure eight that’s lying on
its side so are the sign of infinity so this just kind of movement and sometimes
it helps to write to use your own finger to trace it like this you don’t have to
but it could help you and you want to do it about two feet in front of you so you
would continue to think about the problem and then run your eyes with a
figure eight lying on its side or as a sign of infinity five to seven times
running around like this still thinking about the problem and
then once I’ve done that five to seven times I’m going to run in the opposite
direction so it’s gonna be back around this way and around and around and
around to do that five to seven times both ways and then
to round this thing off you can you want to do left to right
left to right as if you’re tracing a horizontal line in front of you left right left right left right into
that five to seven times still thinking about the problem I said that usually should be good
enough some people go back and do one more circle if you want to do that
that’s fine then step back and compare how you feel about the problem or the
stuck state compared to what you experienced before you started the eye
movement integration how do you feel about the problem now do
you have any solutions do you have new insights this isn’t
gonna solve all your biggest problems on it it’s amazing sometimes how I can like
there’s a it could be a solution that was just what I think they say it’s
right under our nose we can’t see it well maybe that’s
because our focus was too heavy and too much in the front and we were blocking
things out and all the way to do this look under our nose so you will get
solution sometimes and you will feel yourself become completely unstuck from
a stuck state or crash state just by doing this but not all the time at the very least you should at least
experienced having some distance from the the problem are some distance from
the stuck states that now you can you can begin to find solutions and find
resources that you can plug into this because you’re not so connected to the
problem anymore or the state and you’re just kind of you’ve taken a step back
and now you’ve got a sense of having more available to you and that’s what’s
really behind this give it a try on I love to hear your

  1. Really helpful and a lot of validity to this technique. It's like emdr therapy and research shows techniques like these actually help to create new neuro-pathways. And I like what you said about "the solution under our noses"! This is a great pattern interrupt for circular thinking and obsessive thoughts. You mentioned "focus" and our "reticular activating system" proves that we only see what we are focused on and block out all other possibilities. (Like when you are going to buy a maroon car and now all you see everywhere are maroon cars or pass the same building a million times and then only "just notice it!" ). Thank you for suggesting this video. It's something I can do in the bathroom at work when my anxiety flairs up or I get "stuck" on one obsessive thought that is pulling me into depression. (I don't think I can do it at my desk because I have no privacy at work and I work with stuffy architects who will think I'm insane!)


  2. with regards to the eye movements, how does consciously acting and activating this idomotor response will this solve issues but the suggestion and hypnotic language patterns ?

  3. Nice video, well done. I found out about this through Steve Andreas, I think he came up with it. Keep up the good work!

  4. Eyes are brain tissue in the same way light bulbs are power stations. Eye tissue is directly connected to the brain via nerves, like a light is directly connected to power via wires. So, in the broadest sense, yes. Eyes are the only part of the body connected to the brain (via nerves) that is directly exposed outside the skull cavity. All other nerves are protected by skin, ear canals, etc.

    Eyes are not neural tissue, so they aren't brain matter. They only function as an extension.

  5. Thank you. I did this with you even though I do not have any problems at this time. It made me feel very calm. I will try it again when I have a problem to work out.

  6. These types of eye movements will also help recover you eye sight (Bates method) I do them every time I need to and I don't need to wear glasses anymore

  7. I have used these techniques with little modifications for chronic pains . Have amazing results . I am from India.
