Basic Eye Movement Suggestions For Auditory Bilateral Stimulation
The following suggestions for adding eye movements to auditory bilateral stimulation borrow extensively from the psychotherapeutic healing modality known as Brainspotting, developed and perfected by David Grand, PhD.
There's a lot of information about eye movements on the next few pages. It's best to read them in sequence. None of these techniques are required when listening to this music. And as always, it is necessary to read, understand and agree to the disclaimer on this page.
The Basic Bilateral Eye Movement Technique
Before reading this section, we strongly recommend that you read and understood the general listening guidelines for bilateral stimulation music. Otherwise it may be challenging to situate the following pages of information within a larger general understanding of the possible purposes and uses of this kind of music.
How Eye Movement Helps Bilateral Stimulation
You may not have ever thought about it, but your eyes are almost always in motion, even if only a little. If you just sit quietly for a few moments you'll notice that your eyes tend to move around every few seconds, often for no apparent reason.
This is happening because your eye movements are influenced by your thoughts and feelings. Watch somebody who is recalling an event or concentrating on something that is important to them: you will often see their eyes move in characteristic ways depending on what they are thinking, feeling, remembering, etc.
What is truly fascinating is that the reverse is also true: where your eyes are looking directly influences what you think and how you feel. This understanding can lead to potentially extraordinary levels of healing and growth, which is why we want to give you extensive suggestions for using eye movements while listening to bilateral music.
