I have only recently learned about Sun Gazing practice through your web site and would like to try it, but I have a Vitreous Detachment in my my right eye - would that make it unsafe for me to practice Sun Gazing ?

Dennis, of course you should err on the side of precaution.

It is true that sun gazing may damage your eyes, IF YOU DO IT DURING UNSAFE TIMES. If you do it during safe times, unless you are on the equator or that one place in Africa with no ozone lair, It is literally impossible for you to damage your eyes, unless you looked at it through a magnifying glass...Do some research before saying things like this.

To Lady Light from Phoenix, good job on reporting your personal research with Sun Gazing. I myself am up to 20min 20seconds as of this morning. :) I concur with the increased energy and spiritual aspects, and I believe that more people should educate themselves on the different levels of alternative medicines. Feed your mind, and not with junk food. :) Thank you again for your report. :))) eLoven11 to all

Yes, it can be damaging if you don't know how to do it properly. If you even just google it you will see that your only to do it at sunrise or sunset, preferably sunrise between 4am and 6am and no longer than 10min. Some do it in 3min increments and like everything else you must work up to it very slowly. So yes caution is necessary. Please research before trying, best of luck

I would hardly compare the TV to the sun....like apples to broccoli I would think...

A 2013 study linked LED lights in bulbs, computers, cell phones, and TVs to increased risk of irreparable harm to the retina in the eye. Researchers stated the damage came from high levels of radiation in the "blue band" of light. They estimated the problem is likely to grow as more computers, mobile phones and TV screens use LED lights. Experts have called for built-in filters to cut down on the blue glare.

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.

Sungazing is one of the most high vibrational methods that helps us awaken to our unlimited potential. Intuitive Breathing (pranayama) and sungazing along with a few other methods have been the most powerful I've come across. In fact, you can see Hira Ratan Manek (HRM) and Umasankar in the award winning sungazing movie, What If? The Movie

Do not do that!!! Your eyeball is made up mostly of water. The sun heats it up and litterally boils/cooks your eyes. Your skin sunburns and so do your eyes except being made up of so much water it happens more quickly. If you burn your retina it's permanent damage. If you don't believe me ask an eye doctor. I just don't want to see anyone cause permenant damage to their sight.

I ran across that docu yesterday on the documentry channel. I highly recommend it. It was very informative.

Given that your community has an interest in sungazing, we thought you might be interested in a new documentary film coming out later this month called Eat The Sun. The film explores the litte known world of sungazing by following a young man around the country meeting others who felt benefits from staring at the sun. It's a surprising film and inspires some fascinating discussions surrounding the benefits and risks of staring directly into the sun.

Very interesting article. I appreciate how you make sungazing/lightgazing accessible and safe for anyone to try. I am just beginning my exploration of sungazing. I produced a short video that explores one person's experience with it, meditating during sunrise in New York City. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsPu2QkBixs


Multiple Cures Reported

Sun gazing cured caffeine addiction, insomnia, and helped depression! Suffering from insomnia and depression, I had gone to a natural physician who suggested I stopped drinking coffee and replace the coffee drinking with sunshine in the morning by looking almost directly at the sun for a minute or two every morning. He said the effect would be much the same as coffee as far as waking up the body goes.

This physician didn't lie.

For the past 2 years, I go out every morning upon waking, either on the balcony or if not just through my window, and look up for a minute or two towards the direction of the sun. There is an almost immediate energizing of the body. I no longer have any need for caffeine. After 15 years of coffee, I don't crave it at all. I sleep with no sleeping aids (the result of no more caffeine) live a much more peaceful life without all those stimulants, and from my half hearted effort at this "sun gazing" practice, my depression is definitely manageable.
