A recipe for a much happier life…

 Hi!  I am a very happy woman who went blind a few years ago.  This might sound like an oxymoron, but I found something amazing.  After going blind I found a special training method called Vibravision® that teaches you to see with your third eye; your pineal gland.  This comes from a martial art from Indonesia and has been around for well over 400 years but is brand new to the USA.  I am one of 4 blind people training in this art In the USA.  We are working on finding a cure for blindness by using our third eye to “see”.  This is done by sighted and blind people in Indonesia, and sighted people in Utah at a martial arts and meditation school called MP USA and Vibravision®. 

First we start our days with what we call “maintenance”.  Included in this are some cardio exercises that burn a lot of calories in a short time, intense breathing exercises are included in these movements. Then followed up with a specific guided meditation that is what gets you “in the zone”, putting you into an incredible state of mental awareness and peace with all things in nature/ your environment. This is the recipe for happiness, in my opinion. There is a lot of science behind each piece of this meditation art that we do, and a lot more to come in the near future.

We are going to participate in a study involving brain mapping and neuro feedback. This will help us understand what the brain is doing when we do Vibravision®.  Before I found this I was very emotional and caught up in what I had lost.  Now I concentrate on what I am gaining. I would like to share a short video about this in a link.  If you want to see more about this you can also go directly to and then go to to make a tax-deductible donation to the Vibravision Foundation to help people without sight to learn this. Have the best day ever.
