I just picked up Sun gazing again after trying it on and off. I love it. I fixed an eye problem I developed twice once in my early twenties. I used to work in a warehouse with dim lighting that strained my eyes so bad that I lost the ability to focus. I had to get glasses to adjust my focus. Shortly after I learnt about sun gazing and did it only for a few days and lo and behold, no more need of prescription eye glasses. Then a decade later, I took a job that required intense eye straining by looking into the monitor 8 plus hours a day. I had to get prescription eye glasses again. Then I remembered that sun gazing had fixed my problem a decade earlier so I tried it again. Success again. I don't have any issues now just that I love sun gazing for overall health and it's my special time with God. I love it and will continue to do it until I leave this earth.
I am writing to you folks to confirm the AMAZING effects of "sun gazing"!
I am a 72 YO American from Marin County, California....with a BA in "Wholistic Health/Synergy" from New College of California in 1980 and one of the "pioneers" of wholistic health in Marin County in the 1970's! I am also a "Nordic Physical Therapist", having started learning that skill from my Icelandic Grandmother in 1952 at age 4. I was also the "resident therapist" of the famous Watergate Complex's Health Spa in 1977!
I have been an expat in Asia for 28 years now and had a "medical accident" in 2006 when I injured my leg that resulted in blood clots. Knowing that "modern medicine" is quite good at "injury treatments" for accidents, followed the MD's advice and started a regime of "warfarin" treatments for the clots. I DID NOT RESEARCH THAT DRUG.....and I can only blame myself for that stupidity! It turns out that I am one of the approximate 10% whose bodies respond to warfarin by allowing that drug to consume calcium directly out of our bones!
Long story short: after a couple of years on warfarin ( 1 mg twice per day....way too much and also too often, I've learned) my hip started hurting....increasingly! Within a couple of years, I was in a whole lot of pain and had to limit my walking to only the absolute necessary....about 200 meters per day! I was a widowed single father of two young children, 8 and 10 years old, and a full-time University lecturer....but I couldn't walk more than 200 meters without suffering massive pain equivalentt to a very serious toothache!!! I did not take the "pain pills" the doctors offered because I know that those very same pain pills....slowly destroy the kidneys!!!
Anyway, in desperation, I had started doing 12 chakra crystal meditations. THEN I read about "sun gazing" in 2009!!! OMG within just a few days of "drinking in the sun's energy directly into my eyes".....I felt SO MUCH BETTER and stronger all around!!! I became a complete believer within just a few days!
Luckily, my house was situated so that I could "drink in" the sun's energy from my front porch in the mornings and the back porch in the evenings....very convenient for a single parent to say the least!!! I'm writing this on May 13, 2021....and I have been "sun gazing" since 2009!
Not long after I started doing this wonderful, simple act in the mornings and evenings, during the first and last hour of sun of the day, I also read from the Nepalese guy who brought this to the world's attention, that putting one's drinking water into a large glass container and placing it into full sunlight for a few days.....would also allow the water to absorb the sun's energies....so that when you drink that water you also gain much benefit from the "solarized water"!
I've been drinking solarized water since 2008! Sun gazing or drinking is such a lovely practice. You don't have to do it for the full hour in the mornings or evenings.....just 15 to 20 minutes per day still gives great results!!! And I was once in the hospital finally having the much needed hip replacement operation.....and still maintained that same wonderfully state of strength of body even after 8 days without "tapping up the tank" sotospeak!!!
I can't say enough about this wonderfully amazing discovery! My new house has a balcony facing the south so that I can "sun gaze" both in the mornings and evenings from the convenience of my balcony!!! I also have incorporated the 'crystal chakra" meditation into this practice....it makes the practice all the more wonderful. I have posted a photo of myself taken about 1.5 years ago when I was only 71....recently I was sitting next to a yoga teacher at a wedding.....she said she just couldn't believe that I was 71!!!
The only sad thing is that I've tried to turn other people onto this, telling them that it's "one of THEE most important things I've ever learned".....but no one has even tried it!!! Also, I've always been a "sun person" and have loved being out in the sun and have never worn sunglasses either....so I started out following instructions with the slow 10 seconds per day and working up.....but with just 3 or 4 days I was doing the entire 45 yo 55 minutes of directly taking/drinking the sun directly into my eyes....with NO PROBLEMS either!!!
Nowadays I am able to get in 45 - 50 minutes of SUN both mornings and evenings!!! And I will continue until my final day on this earth!!!!!
Many Blessings, MaTakQueeAsi/TatTvamAsi and NaMaSta to you all!!!

P.S. to all potential or beginner sun gazers, please note that you do not need to see the sun to still gain benefit from energy received while gazing at it. Cloudy days don't matter one bit. If you've been doing this practice for even a short time, you'll know approximately where the sun is in the sky and at approximately what time, even when its behind the clouds. Additionally, it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you ONLY gaze directly at the sun during the very first hour of the morning sunlight....and ONLY the very last hour of the evening's sunlight!
Lastly, I would like to let you all know about an amazing development that occurred regarding all this sun gazing business. After just a few months of gazing morning and evening, I noticed that I was starting to wake up each morning in the dark....just before the first light began to fill the sky. And as time moved on and this kept happening day after day, I realized that I had somehow become "connected/ in sync" with our sun in a way that I had never imagined was even possible! Similarly to the way many women's menstrual cycle will often become "in sync" with our moon.....or how they can also become in sync with the "alpha female" in their group of women friends. Now I understand this development to be akin to an inner alarm mechanism that announces to me each morning...."your sun is almost here....time to get up and get ready for your download"!!! And THAT development really does blow my mind....and is highly noteworthy!!!
Your situation is not uncommon among sungazers, Yolande. I have been doing HRM method sungazing for 12 years now, and have seen major improvements with my eyes. I am also a type 2 diabetic for 25 years and am now 68 years old.
Early in our sungazing both my wife and I threw away our sunglasses because we found we didn't need them any more. Bright sunlight didn't bother us. My night vision for driving, which had declined badly, recovered fully and now I can drive all night if I have to. The vision in my eyes came better by three quarters of a diopter in both eyes. I observed that the floaters in my eyes, which were plentiful before, declined significantly.
I know several people who have thrown away their reading glasses after doing sungazing for a time. My sister in law found that she could do without her glasses entirely even for driving, although her driver's license said she had to wear corrective lenses.
I met one Canadian woman at a sungazing lecture by Hira Ratan Manek in Toronto several years ago. She came up with a white cane as she was legally blind. A few months later I held a little sungazers get together at my house in Toronto and invited the woman, who came with a friend, but minus the white cane. I was quite shocked, but then she said her peripheral vision had improved due to the sungazing and now she could see some blurred shapes, enough for her to avoid bumping into things. Previously she could see nothing at all, only light and darkness. She said she only used the cane in winter because her vision was not sharp enough to detect icy patches on the ground that would cause her to fall, and so had to use the cane to feel out those patches.
As a diabetic I have seen major major advances in my ability to manage my diabetes from the early days and continuing. Before sungazing I had to be very careful with taking my medication on time and eating meals on time. If I missed out by an hour or two either on medicine or meals my eyes would start getting blurry, I would start feeling very uneasy and my hands would start trembling. After a couple years of sungazing and until today, I find I can miss medication or mealtimes by five or six hours and not feel any diabetic symptoms. I can miss medication for an entire day and three or more meals without paying the cost. I have done and can do fasting (no meals at all) for two or three days comfortably, which diabetics normally can't do at all.
You don't have to convince me of the benefits of sungazing, as I've had many other than the eye and diabetes one mentioned above. Best of all, it all free!
I have been sun gazing since I was a child, I am now in my 40's. I came across articles about sun gazing recently like it is a new thing and that someone has suddenly invented it, which is not at all the case. I have read some of the other comments about rules and suchlike regarding sun gazing and I personally feel that individuals should research carefully so called "new" methods of healing and health before practicing. However I also agree that the individual must follow their instinct when it comes to these things as there really is no rule or set path to healing, as we are all individuals with our own way. What works for one does not necessarily work for another. I have personally been sun gazing for over 40 years with my eyes closed. That's it. No particular time of day or place and no particular amount of time except when I feel it is time to stop. The sun is a nourishing life giving energetic force, so any moment at any time or place I personally feel is suitable. Healing does not occur in specific places except in our minds and there is no right or wrong way. There is no right or wrong way to connect to the source .. there just is. Healing is healing as long as our intent is there and we follow our instinct along with common sense and plenty of research. Energy will follow thought.
I wish to tell you all a experience I had with Sun Gazing a few years back.
At that time I had never heard of any "Sun Gazing " therapy. So it all happenned by accident or by "instinct!
This happened here in Brazil during the Carnival festivities in 1989. I went to the beach with some friends to stay there for the 5 day holyday. On the first day (it was a saturday ) and it was very hot and we stayed drinking beers and caipirinhas in front of the beach. At night we went to this night club and danced a lot and drinked a awfull lot as well. When we got out of the club we noticed that the day was dawning. We were very very tired and a bit drunk as well. So some of our friends decided that we should go to this small plateau of rocks near the ocean to watch the sunrise. We sat at the rocks and started watching the Big Sun God in golden and reddish color slowly coming out of the South Atlantic. I kind of entered a meditative state automatically.The vision was amazing. The Sun went up and and when it became a full disk and started to glow more and more we went home. I noticed that all my tiredness and drunkness went away and I was replenished with energy for the entire sunday.No one slept. It was really amazing all of us didnt'feel tired or sleepy. I figured that the rising sun gives more life energy than in the sunset. especially coming out from the horizon on the sea. It's a surplus of energy made of high level of impressions entering the body.
