Some people temporarily experience Involuntary rapid eye movements after the spinning exercise of Rite No 1 of The Five Tibetan Rites.
Sometimes called “dancing eyes,” these rapid eye movements, known as nystagmus, can be induced by spinning in a circle or after a roller coaster ride, etc., and generally disappear quite quickly. Some people may feel slightly nauseous or experience a mild headache afterward, but this will eventually settle down.
Inside your inner ear, past the eardrum, lie three semicircular canals that detect motion (up and down, side to side, and roll). These canals are lined with millions of extremely tiny strands of hair connected to nerve cells. As you move, two layers of thick gelatinous fluid inside the canals slosh around the ear canals.
When you stop spinning suddenly, the fluid in the middle ear continues to move, creating a sense of continued spinning even though your eyes no longer detect motion. Just like when you stir a cup of tea or coffee, the liquid continues to swirl for a while when you stop stirring.
The vestibular system in your inner ear described above sends signals via the nervous system to the muscles of the eyes. When your central nervous system receives conflicting messages from the visual system and the vestibular system in the inner ears, these symptoms can appear.
The solution is to slow down your spinning movement, improve the smoothness of your technique, and cut back on repetitions until your body gets acclimatized to the rotational motion.
