How to…

Used in ancient civilizations

In numerous ancient civilizations — from the Incas and Aztecs to the Greeks and Egyptians – this practice was privileged to only the high priests and was taboo for ‘ordinary’ people. Now, with the aid of the web, this resurrected practice is accumulating international momentum(Thanks to you!).

Theory

The primary theory of how Sun Gazing is possible centers on the stimulation of the pineal gland from direct sunlight entering the brain via the eye – the lone external expression of the brain – and journeying along the retinal-hypothalamic tract. (The pineal, once believed to have no function, is now considered a master gland, controlling the secretion of melatonin and serotonin). Sun Gazing is tool for tapping the potential of your human being. Some change may occur to reach these peaks; your perceptions may alter circumstances, you will begin to change from the inside out, and as we all know change can be uncomfortable. Nonetheless, when we release our physical and emotional energetic blockages these changes will become trivial relative to the incredible expansiveness of the universe. We are all energetic beings, vibrating at different frequencies, so we should be comfortable with the concept that all of us are different. There may be many different reactions, sensations and experiences; remember, whatever happens to you is perfect. Everything has reason, whether we know it or not, understanding the reasons is the goal. Be positive and open-minded; Love, Health, Wealth, Understanding, Empathy and Abundance!

 


Benefits

Contemporary sungazers claim a multitude of health benefits including improved eyesight, enhanced vitality, weight loss and, in some more profound cases, a complete loss of the want and need to eat food, improved overall health, increased energy levels, clearer thinking, an increase in awareness, and results from what is called wish fulfillment(intentions).

 

Safe Use of the Sun:

Common sun screens contain aluminum, and other cancer causing substance. We recommend using plain sesame oil, it is an superior sunscreen. Research demonstrates it blocks the effects of the sun’s ray’s by approximately 30%.

If you are going to be sunbathing, get rid of any corrective lenses you’re wearing, or keep your eyes closed (until you have become extremely experienced).

If you consume an average diet, or eat grains, limit sun exposure, and wear protective clothing.

 

It has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt that during these times, one is free from UV and IR rays exposure, which is harmful to your eyes. To determine the timings of sunrise or sunset, you can check the local newspaper or online, which also lists the UV Index as 0 during these times. Both times are ideal for practice. Sun gazing also has the added advantage of getting vitamin A and D during the 1-hour safe period window. Vitamin A is necessary for the health of the eye, the only vitamin that the eye requires.

Dangers

The practice of Sun Gazing can be dangerous if precaution and conscious use of any method is not used. Solar retinopathy, damage to the eye’s retina due to solar radiation,and blindness to varying degrees and persistence frequently result from sungazing during a solar eclipse. Although vision loss due to this damage is generally reversible, permanent damage and loss of vision have been reported. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation, produced by the sun, is associated with damage to the eye, including pterygium and cataracts.
