The benefits of sun gazing have been brought to light by Hira Ratan Manek of the Solar Healing Center. However, these benefits have been known to people around the world for centuries. With the proper sungazing technique, you may be able to increase your overall health, vitality, energy and nutrition. Here are the basics that you need to know about sungazing and how to use the natural energy of the sun for your benefit.
Why Does Sungazing Work?
The sun gives everything on our planet the ability to live. The sun is literally a part of every plant, animal and human. Why then, do we try as hard as possible to separate ourselves from the source of our physical life force? Traditional sunscreen actually contains aluminum that can cause skin cancer. Staying inside too long lightens the skin to the point of detriment. It is much better to learn how to live with the sun than to avoid it.
Your eyes lead most directly into the lifelines of your body. By correctly sungazing, you are literally opening your body up to receiving the energy of life most fully. Read on to discover the correct way to sungaze.
How to Sungaze
We are told to avoid staring into the sun as a child, and to an extent, this is correct. Believe it or not, the color of your eye determines how much natural talent you have for sungazing. Just like your skin tone, the color of your eye is determined by the amount of melanin in your iris. More melanin protects your eye from UV rays that damage the iris. Brown eyes contain the most melanin; green eyes have the least. If you have green eyes or eyes with less melanin protection, such as blue and grey, you may need to start slowly.
Sungazing means staring directly into the sun. Sungazers recommend performing the practice barefoot with feet on natural grass or dirt to ensure the proper flow of energy through your body and up from the earth.
It is best to sungaze only during one hour after sunrise or one hour until sunset, as the suns rays are less powerful at this time. Start the first day with a ten second sungaze. Ramp up by ten seconds every day after that until you can sungaze for forty four minutes. At this point, your eyes will become accustomed to sungazing and your body will also learn how to intake the energy more thoroughly. The secret to the process is consistency. Try not to miss a day and you should experience the benefits listed below.
The Benefits of Sungazing
Sungazers report that they experience many positive physical and mental benefits from the practice of sungazing, including the following:
- Weight loss: Because the sun literally contains the energy that causes nutritious foods to grow, many sungazers experience the phenomenon of needing less solid food after a while. Less food means less weight gain.
- Health of the pineal gland: Gazing is said to improve the health of the pineal gland, increasing your intuition and overall nutritional balance.
- Stimulates serotonin and melatonin production in the body: It is only natural that seratonin helps to produce melatonin, seeing as they are of a similar chemical makeup. Serotonin and melatonin produce feelings of happiness in the body.
