- Way one: get it cut out by surgery (which he wisely didn't recommend)
- Way two: place a hot compress on it 2-3 times a day, to encourage it to drain
- Way three: wait it out. It should disappear by itself in a few months' time.
She breathed a sigh of relief when it finally disappeared out of her life, but her happiness was short-lived: barely a year later, a new bump appeared, this time on her other eyelid.
After a few months of waiting for that one to disappear as well, she decided to come and visit me, to get some more clues as to why the bumps kept appearing in the first place.
She had a few ideas herself, all valid, about there perhaps being a link between having a 'good eye', for herself and others, and the bumps. Mandy candidly admitted that she often found it difficult to judge others favorably, and could also be very hard on herself.
These are classic signs of Gallbladder meridian being out of balance, in someway. I showed her some simple acupressure techniques to 'depressurise' Gallbladder meridian, and we waited to see if anything moved. Nothing. Nada. Nega-nega-tory.
At that point, I invited Mandy to come for a meridian MOT, so we could actually see first hand what might be underneath the mysterious bumps. Two meridians came up: Stomach, and Kidney.
Mandy's Kidney meridian was chronically weak, which indicated she'd been in state of some deep-seated fear or anxiety for quite a while. Amongst other things, it provides the energetic 'juice' for the eyes. Stomach is associated with day-to-day worries and stresses, and goes straight through the eyeballs - in fact, straight through the mysterious 'bumps' that had appeared on Mandy's eyelids.
I showed her some simple, easy exercises involving massaging the bone around her eye socket with her finger, and then palming the eyes, and rubbing the K-27 Kidney points under her clavicle, to shoot the necessary 'juice' up to her eyes.
Two weeks' later, the bump started to shrink.
Interestingly, as she massaged her eye socket, Mandy started to realize just how much stress was gathering in that area of her face - it was initially very painful to massage, and it took a good week before the pain started to reduce.
She's also now finding her daily eye massage to be a good diagnostic tool, to see how much stress or worry she's feeling. When it's very painful, she knows she's stressing a lot, and needs to talk to G-d more about what's going on, and include Him in her problems. (When it's very painful, I recommend tapping instead of massaging, which is still very effective.)
With G-d's help, she's hoping the bump will soon be a thing of the past. But if she wants them to stop reappearing, Mandy now knows the key is to talk to G-d, preferably daily, about all the things that are worrying her.
