Irlen Syndrome & The Right Kind of Luminescence!


The night before last I was woken by the glare from my duvet . . yes, the glare from my duvet! And when I say ‘woken’ I don’t mean I lay there and thought ‘Hmm, my duvet is bright tonight!’ No, my heart was beating like it would beat out of my chest, my abdomen went tight and I felt like my very life-force was being wrung out of me. This isn’t a one-off occurence. This has been happening every night for 8 years and I have called these happenings ‘night panics.’

Last night, I thought I would investigate more so I started by having a darker duvet. This would seem like an obvious solution except it wasn’t. I went to sleep feeling the duvet was fine but woke with a similar experience to the night before but this time felt convinced that the duvet was ‘too dark!’. I felt like I was being pulled into the darkness and threw the duvet back and tried to get it out of my line of vision. 

I am learning that the solution to my ‘night panics’ is all about trying to find the right kind of luminescence. When the night is clear I need a brighter duvet cover and when the night is cloudy I need a bit less luminescence. If the cloud is thick then I need a dark duvet. It seems that although the cloud my prevent light from the moon, it has it’s own light and this even varies depending on the colour of the cloud. I find the same thing in the day time. The brighter the day the more luminescent my clothing needs to be so now I tend to wear white tops on sunny days and darker tops on cloudy days. 

I don’t fully understand this unusual experience of mine except I am aware that one of my eyes is sensitive to both light and dark. It is always telling me something is too light, bright or dark. And my brain becomes confused.  I am also aware that I experience energy in colour and where others my choose clothes that look nice and are on trend, I am always looking for a feeling of energy – life, a vibrancy – and I seem to always find it hiding in the right kind of luminescence!

Hi. Welcome to my blog. As a healer I help you open to being your authentic self. We need to be vulnerable to heal and to have satisfying relationships with ourselves and others. We need to be vulnerable to admit our needs. Meeting our needs and allowing others to meet them is what tanks us up and makes us feel better. We feel more satisfied and fulfilled and we feel able to give from a full heart rather than an empty one.
