Nagging eye twitch

    Hey everyone,

    I have had tremendous healing through TMS since 2017 and am SO grateful for it. Its changed my life, has now made its way into changing my wife's life, and its something I talk about a lot with my coaching clients. So needless to say, I am a huge advocate for TMS work!

    I have one nagging issue that has been with me really since I was young. I have had some sort of eye twitch or spasm since as long as I can recall. More into my teen and adult years, its more of a double blink, in my left eye only. I do notice it goes away when I am not stressed, but I would say its part of my life MOST times. I have done a great deal of heart work through counseling, coaches, my own recovery from porn addiction, etc. I feel like this one physical symptom has no end, and it does frustrate me, because its very noticeable to others and can be embarrassing.

    I am certain that it is prominent due to my anxiety about the future. It's not so much an axiety about what will happen, which it can be, but more often, its an anxiety around having the future planned/worked out and trying to control things so its smooth.

    Right now specifically, I am launching my company and I can feel the eye twitch a lot, and I also feel very warm all day which makes me sweat a ton. An interesting note, my eyes seem to be a TMS epicenter - I feel eye fatigue when stressed and find it nearly impossible to truly cry (since 13 years old)

    Only a few months ago, my eye twitch was nearly gone, then I went through an awful work situation and since then I have had some flair-ups.

    I guess I wanted to write this post to feel supported. I sense that once the dust clears with the company launching, my parents visiting, us being out of quarantine, etc, I will have some more space to "run" and do the things that refresh me. I am hopeful, but right now, I feel drained. The quarantine has been really hard on my wife and me after our travels to see family.

    Any thoughts on the eyes being such an epicenter for TMS? Any words of encouragement? Thank you!

    Hi Shawn,

    I wonder if your eyes are somehow, energetically you try to control the future. You perhaps will somethings to happen, through your eyes. I sometimes get a crazy glimpse at myself attempting to control so many elements, almost as if I could, perhaps like the magical thinking of a child...

    I observe in your tone you feel fairly relaxed about the symptoms, which I think is helpful. And you're connecting it to on-going stress, fairly confident this stress will have an ending (or at least this intensity will diminish). This seems strong and clear.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Andy.

    I am going through the Structured Program right now and have had some great awareness around a few areas such as this. I am hopeful!
