Eyesight is more important than any other sense in your life! How else are you going to see the signs? You know me, I am the biggest advocate of seeing and interpreting signs (from my Team and the Universe) than possibly anyone else I know.

BUT this time, seeing was believing. You see… I’ve had a little bit of trouble with my eyesight of late. Blurry vision. Double vision. Sore eyes. Needing to wear reading glasses nearly all the time for reading, writing and computer work.

But I ignored it, rather than facing it.

I’ll admit it was tough to ingore, when during every commercial break there’s an ad for Specsavers. Or more recently, the ad asking people if they were given up to $50 million dollars, would they cash in their eyes to someone who needed them?

So powerful was my response to people in that ad vehemently responding with “No way!” that I interpreted it as the Universe’s message to me that I wasn’t seeing clearly on a Spiritual level.

Silly me, not everything needs to be a Sign from the Universe does it?

Or does it?

In this case it certainly was. But as it transpired, it wasn’t associated with any Spiritual lessons that I was supposed to see or learn.

No cryptic messages this time! Very easy to interpret, in fact.

This time it really was literal. It was in fact about my eyesight.

I would absolutely hate to go blind! I don’t care what else happens to me in my life, but I would really hate to lose my sight. I didn’t even want to wear glasses if I didn’t have to. 

So, I booked myself into you guessed it, Specsavers. And lucky I did.

The Optometrist took longer than a normal eye test would. Moved me from room to room, umm-ing and ahh-ing all the while. This wasn’t doing anything for my nerves.

Finally, he pulled out a bottle of eye drops and told me to use them for the rest of my life. He also told me that this would help my vision clear up.

The future of my eyesight was in my own hands. But, that was the good news. The bad news (well actually, it is also the good news in retrospect) was that I was a very strong candidate for contracting Glaucoma. He referred me to an Eye Specialist straight away. Their appointment was in my email Inbox when I got home.

I had started to wonder how much Specsavers had been paying to have their ad aired so often. Now I know.

Yep, it was a sign from the Universe. And it was priceless.

Seeing, was, as it turned out, believing.

The message was simple enough, “Go get your eyes checked Marion!”

So please, look out for Signs that the Universe is trying to get your attention in your own life.

Sometimes it can be hard to see and quite cryptic. But sometimes the signs really are right before your very eyes 🙂
