Hi. I've only been sun gazing for about a month, and because of the weather in England have just got up to 2 minutes. I would like to know if there's anybody else just starting out? Especially in the uk?

Clouds do not affect the bodies ability to absorb the sun's energy at all......if you have sun gazed regularly, you will know the approximate place where the sun is so you can stare into that place without actually seeing the sun itself!!! Good Luck! Darrell

I stared at the sun on long trips as a child. I remember vividly: crescent shapes rotating in circles, then in opposite cocentric circular paths. I recall there being three or more of these overlapping shapes occurring all at once in different patterns. I would stare for what seemed like hours straight on the 4 times yearly trips from Savannah, GA to the NC coastline.

Just now I looked quickly at the sun and witnessed a single long arc along the bottom. Also, in Clemson, SC for the eclipse in August (21st? 2017), I glanced a few times and saw these same arc shapes circling the sun. Mind you I only look for a milli-second so I don't see much movement.

Anyway, for any of you sungazers, I would appreciate any feedback on what is happening within my own eyes (inner pineal, etc) or within the sun itself.
Thanks much.

Of course the sun is no less strong during an eclipse.....just remember that this wonderful, energetic practice is only to be done during the very first and very last hours of sunlight of the day!!! D

I believe it is because of detoxification process in your body. AS toxins are released, your body will experience the effects of such toxins like allergies and or itching.

Side effect is because the body has toxins.. and it is detoxing the body. Hope this helps, I have been doing SG for 3 days now, no side effects, just benefits.... cheers.

You can actually close your eyes and imagine sungazing and walking barefoot. Sort of like a sun-walking "meditation". We've had some weird weather over the past few years but the brain doesn't differentiate between what we call "real" and what is imagined so try it. I like a combination of "extreme barefoot walking" on the rugged, rocky bits of the lake shore and sungazing, imagining the physical feeling in your legs, feet and the warmth and light in your eyes can intensify it quite a bit. The more physical sensation you can imagine, the more intense it will be.

Vit-D deficiency seems like another likely culprit here. At least 20 min of Sun daily is recommended for Vit-D production and D is a big Immune Booster.

What are the incorrect ways? This is something I have done my whole life. Rarely barefoot. I always enjoyed the spots it put on my eye lids for a few seconds. I never knew about time or day or anything like that but it has never hurt my eyes. It would be nice to know when I can get the most out of this practice. This is something I will have to do more!

I have been sungazing for close on three years. I do not follow any "ritual" such as standing on bare soil or counting the seconds and minutes because I do not think that this will really make a difference; if anything it gets in the way of surrendering to the process.

My special procedure involves placing myself in such a way that I have the foliage of a tree between myself and the sun; using a gentle swaying motion I can control the amount of light that hits the eye.

Occasionally I gaze at the sun (I live in a subtropical area) at noon time for a up to a minute at a time and can only say that the alleged dangers of doing this are nothing but hysterical hype, coming from people who have never done any kind of any sun gazing.

Namaste

YES, YES, and YES, Finally! Thankyou so much Lady Light. I wish that your perfect TRUTH, about safe sun gazing will reach out everywhere. I do think that people who are messing arround in good things, doubting, changing it etc, maybe are just not ready to commit themselves to it.... don't know. I'm also following SAFE SUN GAZING/SOLAR MEDITATION, following EXACTLY what an expert, HRM, is telling...its sooo simple, and if there is any questions we just email him, and the answer is there within 3 days. Again, THANK YOU.

I am curious to know why it has to be absorbed through the eyes? It seems the pineal gland to be the activator and the sun could go through the 3rd eye, couldn't it? Eyes closed method, I guess, to protect the eyes from harm.


Fountain of Youth
Posted by Tom (Usa) on 05/13/2015

The pineal gland is in the middle of the brain, right? Well the macula of the eyes absorbs all the good stuff from the sun and transfers it back to the brain in which the brain becomes energized and then sends the body its share of the suns goodies. Very simple process with large benefits.

I have been doing sun gazing for more than a year, at most 10 minutes. My eyes are still intact. My eyes closes at the first attempt of sun contact. After this, there are small dark spots appearing on the second sun contact and finally these small dark spots form a circle and covers the sun. Then, I see the sun very clearly, as if I am just gazing at the moon.

The issue with sungazing is - living in england where I live, we see the sun rare so building up 10seconds a day would result in about 5-7years before building upto the full time of sun gazing time, plus where I live - there is absolutely no accessible place to sungaze where there is soil. I do sungaze when possible and I started off with more than 10seconds and it didnt cause me no harm. Im now on 7minutes but I do this in 3minutes then another 3minutes then a further minute a present. What would be the feedback advise? to just increase one sitting of sun dose? because clouds dominate the skies by me almost 24/7 so getting to see it for more than 3minutes is somewhat of a revelation in england. Its constantly grey industrial skies here but if you need soil too - then I just cannot do that because id be too low that I would miss the sun completely in the rising and setting hours. I live in the shitty (i mean city) end basically.

i have noticed that I have gone 5hrs sleep on many nights in a row though lately and I walk several miles a day and go the gym and although I wake up worn out always, I manage to stay awake during the day for much longer now. Cant say as im on top of the world mind anywhere near yet

You will not go blind sungazing. Geesh! If you can watch TV for 3 hours, surely you can see look into the sun. This is an ancient practice, and if you do ALL your homework before committing to the 9 months it takes to get to 44 minutes, then you know that there are guidelines to go by. Eye can receive the entire spectrum of sunlight. The rising and setting sun has minimal to zero UV rays. It is important for anyone who is looking into this SAFE practice to do their research first, because if you don't, then it is no longer considered a safe practice because you are not following the correct way. Hira Ratan Manek (HRM) is the best source to look at. He has several university studies behind him. I have been sungazing for about 2-3 months, and I am at 11 minutes, just about to finishing the 1st (of 3) stages, which allows the sun's energy or the sunrays passing through the human eye to charge the hypothalamus tract, which is the pathway behind the retina leading to the human brain.

Stage 2 (15- 30 minutes), mental depression will go away, It is possible to achieve a perfect balance of mind. Physical diseases will start being cured as well. 70 to 80% of the energy synthesized from food is taken by the brain and is used up in fueling tensions and worries. With a lack of mental tension, brain does not require the same amount of energy as before. As you proceed in sun gazing and as your tensions decrease food intake goes down.

When you reach 30 - 44 minutes duration of continuously looking at sun you will slowly be liberated from physical diseases since by now all the colors of the sun reach the brain through the eye. Brain regulates the flow of color prana appropriately to the respective organs. All the internal organs get ample supply of the required color prana. The vital organs are dependent on certain sun color prana. Kidney red, Heart yellow, Liver green etc. Colors reach the organs and address any deficiencies.

When I was a little girl, we drove about 20 miles to church. To pass the time, I used to stare at the sun all the way there. I have told several opthalmologists about this, and they all said that my eyes were not damaged from it.

My husband and I have been sungazing for a few weeks now and we feel amazing. We also have changed to a Raw Food Diet consisting of mainly fruit too.. So it could be a bit of both. But after Sungazing you just feel so good. We are addicted to it and can't wait to get out there and do it again. It makes you feel more connected. I have really deep sleeps now with vivid dreams. I have noticed my appetite has decreased already.. With a feeling of wanting to eat to heal my body instead of just satisfying it with taste. I am increasing the sungazing time 10 seconds a day. The first time I did it for 10 seconds, I could barely look at the sun. Now I can gaze at it for a long time with no problems. I am hoping for better eyesight in the long run.

My Sufi teacher has Mr.K.S.Azeemi( at age 81 he does not need eye glasses) done sungazing and he reccomends sungazing with closed eyes for enhancing energy level. Best time he recommends is when at sunrise the disk is orange-red (infra_red). Sungazing with closed eyes is considered safer. But increase your time gradually. This whole thing about bare-foot is nonsense though.

He recommends that while sungazing imagine that energy is coming to your body through the third eye (between eye brows).

I have been sun gazing for four years now, and have learned from a couple prominent sun gazers, one being scientist Vinny Pinto. I write you because of one poster's admonition that sun gazing at clouds is safer than looking straight at the sun. This is not accurate.

Clouds cause a glare, that can actually be harmful. Doing so for short periods of time on occasion is okay, but not often. The best time is early in the day, or later in the day, looking at the sun directly. I sun gaze at all hours with full sun exposure, with no problem, as do many sun gazers I know. This however is not suggested for beginners, who should only sun gaze early, or later in the day. The thing is you must be barefoot on actual soil, and after gazing, continue to stand on bare earth for at least 10 minutes to ground the energy. This last part is very important. No corrective lenses should be in use at the time of gazing. Starting at one half minute, and working up a half minute a day is ideal. So, first day one half minute, second day one minute, etc. As your eyes adjust, eventually you can do it for long periods of time. I can do it for twenty minutes a day now. My lens prescription improved by a couple numbers doing this practice. Do expect there will be a blinding effect for up to an hour afterward, but this effect lessens, the longer one sun gazes. I highly suggest thoroughly reading Vinny Pinto's suggestions before gazing which can be found near the bottom of this page: http://www.rawpaleodiet.org/sungazing/

Yes, a common improvement in sun gazing is the body's circadian rhythm is synchronized with the sun. The body's pineal gland now goes and work in cycle. The reason is that the body needs something to reset its clock. What really messes our body is the use of artificial lighting which can be opened for 24 hours a day and the body's clocks are off. The other issue is the light spectrum of the artificial lighting is incomplete causing very favorable biological effects. People who raises fish aquarium noticed that fishes needs a full spectrum lighting so that fishes don't get cataract, or their scales don't become dull as well as causing them to be more healthy generally. The reality is, you need the sun, but you really shouldn't stare directly into the sun either. This will cause blindness. Just look indirectly is the best approach. The simple fact of just opening your windows in the morning to allow the sun to shine through and enjoying the sunlight is more than enough for the body to re sync itself, but preferably getting the sun exposed without the filtering of glass windows or plastic windows is much more preferred then anything else.

I disagree. I tried it and had a bad experience after a few months where I lost vision in the center of my eyesight, I was involved with several people who also were practicing at the same time as me and two of them ended up with permanent vision damage. I agree it can feel good in very small doses at sun rise or set, but nothing more!!!

You must have been "sun gazing" during the day time and not only within the first and last hours of the day! Tragic news for you, Jennifer! I do recall some guy going online many years back and who told people that his mother was an "opthamologist" and was telling people that they could "sun gaze" any time of the day with no bad effects. Maybe you read his posting and were fooled by his apparent deliberate attempt to harm people with his dis-information?!?!

Posted by Jennifer (UK) on 05/21/2021

I too am a sun lover (when we ever see the sun that is! ), and believe in its great benefits on our bodies and minds. However, over many years now I have noticed that the sun is now very pale, or white, every day. No longer the yellow/orange colour it used to be - at least as viewed here in the UK. I used to recall seeing the huge red globe after a hot summer's day shimmering down and disappearing below the horizon. Now sunsets are ALWAYS obscured by hazy skies, and the sun is tiny and pale as it just fades down even on summer evenings.

Does anyone else have this experience, or is it just in the cold, wet North?

I have begun sun gazing and reading as much information as I can. My question is, I have had cataracts removed in the past and consequently have lens replaced I have heard that gazing through any binoculars or such can be damaging. Do you know of anyone who has practiced this after having the cataract surgery? I have not felt any bad side effects but have only been sun gazing for two weeks so far. I love the way it feels but am concerned that the artificial lens can make it damaging.

I DO NOT BELIEVE or ACCEPT anyone's claim to stare at the full sun at high noon! That would burn out the eyes.

Sun gazing must be done in increments beginning with the sun at its lowest ebb adding ten seconds each day and eventually ending when the sun leaves the horizon. To stare at the full sun after it is above the horizon is bloody dangerous to one's eyesight. One would damage the eyes, even to the extent of blindness.

You must then do the practice consistently if choosing to make this part of your lifestyle.

I'm an indoor cat but often look at birds and the sun out the window if I'm not too distracted, when I have a few minutes or whenever I'm outside. I always have and it's never bothered me. I look in the morning, at noon time, at solar eclipses, it doesn't matter. I also like the feel of the sun on my palms - I put my palms on the glass or the screen - don't know why but it feels really good. I suppose, because palms seldom get much light.

I like my old windows. I have some new windows that don't feel very good unless they're open and I'm just looking through the screen. They have some kind of UV filter on or in them or something. Sometimes I open the kitchen window in the winter so I can look at the sun and hear the birds.

Sun Gazing and UVB
Posted by John (Trang Thailand) on 03/29/2017

Re: Sun Gazing & UVB, are they long waves or short. Do they do good via the eyeball or are just bad for the skin. I dunno, I am confused. A 1000 years ago I read a book by John Ott – Health & Light which is about – light, sun & artificial. I thought it said that UVB that goes in through the eyeball does bloody good, like make progesterone in menopausal ladies that makes them feel nice. Heaps more in the ebook or a free download on the WWW. BUT in a search for UVB & stem cells - they also do bloody good - heaps spoke about the bad effects of UVA, UVB, & UVC. Because this gets us to sun gazing – not looking at the sun but around it and between 1100 am. & 1300 pm. before & after this time, UVB won't show its face. Too shy I guess. Anyone know? John

BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS

I do sun gazing during the last one hour of sun sets. I do it for half hour for almost 15 days. I have read that it helps to open pineal gland. It has improved my eye sight a lot. However, now I am getting lot of itching on my entire body mostly during late evening hours. I really wish to continue sun gazing. I simply love it. I don't know what to do now. Please help

I recently started sungazing, and now I am at 7:30. It is doable at this point, it will be impossible to do over 30 minutes in the morning because I work full time, 8:30 to 5 Mon to Fri.

Would it be still effective if I split the sungazing time to sunrise and sunset, for example 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening?

Also, the area I live often gets cloudy in the morning in autumn and winter. If I miss the sun in the morning, would it be OK to do sungazing in the evening?
