Pay close attention to which specific eye is falling victim to such prodding. "The right eye is attached to the left brain," Pagano said. "So if the right one gets poked, it means you're not seeing things logically." Maybe you just agreed to tag along with your friend on a three-week trip to Japan, but are having second thoughts over if you're actually prepared to take that much time off.
Meanwhile, the left eye is connected to the right brain, which controls creativity. "This means you're not able to see things with imagination," Pagano explained. If you're feeling uninspired, buy a sketchbook, switch your running route to a more inspiring trail, pop some LSD (kidding) — just do something that will get the creative juices flowing.
Meanwhile, if there is a certain person poking out you eyes, be warned. You might be losing trust in them. According to Pagano, "Someone might be trying to pull something over on you." If you're the one doing the poking, it might mean there's an issue that you're choosing to avoid. It's time to face it.
