The Minds Eye… The Dyslexic’s Best Friend?

Historically, the dyslexic has excelled in the fields of art, drama, music, sports, political  and military strategy, inventing as well as business. The famous dyslexics of the present and of the past probably don’t know it but they can contribute a great deal of their success

to the way they process confusion via the Mind’s Eye.

It is very common for a dyslexic learner to have numbers, letters and punctuation marks float within the page or elsewhere. Of course, the renowned symptom of letter reversals or  letters into a number of different angles is also quite common.  The dyslexic’s gift is the ability or process in which he solves confusion utilizing his Mind’s Eye. However, the Mind’s Eye tends to work real well in the three-dimensional world (the world we live in) and at the same time create havoc in the two-dimensional world of written text–reading and writing.  What evolves for the parent observing the dyslexic is a reading disability stumble or  worse a mental health break in the form of a daydream to the beach, mountains or some other pleasurable experience while he’s supposedly focusing on the academic task. 

The Mind’s Eye is this curious intangible entity that exists for everyone; however, most people are unaware of its existence and its possibilities with respect to creativity. An example of its use and clarity is within Albert Einstein’s famous quote, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”. We take viewing the imagination for granted but what views the imagination is one’s Mind’s Eye. Simple concept but not definable!

In the disciplines of academia, the Mind’s Eye has an optimum location which is behind and above the head. Whether you’re seven years old or sixty-five years old, anyone can learn to manage their Minds Eye. All it takes is just a little consistent effort of visualizing the Mind’s Eye at its desired position. Then, the letters that are floating on the page, or the letters of the word being turned upside down or inside out (or who knows which way) can now all be managed and accurate perception perceived. Furthermore, all reading disability symptoms can be corrected instantaneously and effortlessly.

Question: So,what are the words that tend to trigger  this confusion or disintegrated perception by the Mind’s Eye?

Answer: Since the dyslexic thinks in a very high percentage of three-dimensional thought, it is the words that are abstract in nature  because they are typically what cause a stumble(s) while reading or writing. In Western school systems today there are 340 abstract words and symbols that are learned in grades K-3 possibly 4 by rote memorization. The problem with rote memorization method for the dyslexic learner is that there is very little three-dimensional about it, which results in very poor retention long-term (gross understatement). Therefore, if you master the three parts of these words and symbols three-dimensionally then the Mind’s Eye has so much less to stumble on promoting fluidity while reading.
