Those are some interesting thoughts. On a conscious level I do not feel being thin is equal to being poor, but I realise that you are referring to impressions on a more subliminal level of consciousness.
I'll keep my awareness alert for these and see if they arise.
After reading your message I tried the first part of the EFT tutorial on http://www.emofree.com . I felt my eye problem going down from an 8/10 to a 6 or 7 on 10, but going back to 8 a few minutes later. I have located an EFT practitioner in my city but am not sure if it will be worth the significant amount of money she charges. I think I will do some more of these online tutorials before I make this decision.
Also, I have already met an acupressure healer who felt my acupressure points on various parts of my body and told me that my optic nerve was weakened largely because of an energy block in my cervical spine. He told me which points to work on to relieve it. So I am doing self-acupressure for a short while everyday until I see him again in a month. It seems to help momentarily, although it is too early to say.
Have you been to an EFT practitioner?
I didn't know about the Yuen Method or Coletter Stefan or Leroy Malouf. Thanks for these suggestions. I will look them up.
