Keep Your Eyes Peeled!
Eyes correspond to the heart. If the heart is open, the eyes will be open. If the heart is shut down, the eyes will be narrowed. People who have been badly hurt in the past often have eyes that are narrow and often look like their squinting. These people often have major trust issues. It is a sign that thinking has taken over feeling. For example, if you try to solve a math problem, before long you will find yourself squinting and your eyes will narrow. Thinking makes your eyes small.
People with large eyes are emotional, expressive and receptive and tend to be warmer and more trusting.
Also, a person whose right eye is larger than the left eye appears to the outside world to be open, emotional and receptive, but in actual fact, in the inside that person is actually analytical, perceiving or watchful. An individual whose left eye is larger is showing an analytical thinker to the world or trying to appear savvy or shrewd. In reality this is a softy who is receptive, emotional and expressive in their private lives. This is more common in business people, where they try to look like “a thinker”.
Lines around the outside corner of the eyes are often referred to as “crow’s feet”. The Chinese call them “joy lines”. These lines are formed by constant and repetitive smiling and laughing. Unfortunately, there is a downside to the lines around the eyes. If these lines drop downward, they are also known as “sadness lines”. If they radiate over the cheek bones they become “sorrow lines” and then “grief lines” as they pass down into the cheek area.
These repressed emotions that have caused these lines are very private and not easily expressed in the world as our society doesn’t allow active expression of these emotions. They are not socially acceptable in public.
Lines that begin at the outside corner of the eye and go down toward the nose are called “pain lines”. Pain is often a very hidden condition. Chronic pain is not easily shared and suffering is usually a private affair.
