The Reasons Behind Your Having To Do Sun-gazing.
The sun is something we see everyday and it grants us life, grants us the ability to grow food, and if it ever died out, we would not be able to survive. The sun conducts a process we know as photosynthesis, which allows plants to reproduce and keep reproducing for generations to come. Those plants provide food for animals. Those animals provide food for other animals. The sun is the key to the circle of life. The sun provides vitamin D for our bodies while it keeps us warm every day. The sun continues to give us more by providing energy for our technology and gadgets. We, as a human race, keep on discovering more and more that the sun can do for us, and one of our newer discoveries is sun-gazing. It’s a simple daily routine that can be practiced by anyone, and its benefits are phenomenal.
Sun gazing is staring at the sun for a short period at a time at a specific time of day (to avoid UV damages). You don’t want to stare at the sun while it’s highest in the sky, because you don’t want to damage your eyes. The article will discuss the particular time of day and the amount of time you should gaze.
Who created the new sun-gazing trend?
Hira Ratan Manek was the man who introduced sun gazing to the western world. He founded Solar Healing centers and the website to go along with it. This man lives his entire life surviving from energy from the sun and water, like a human solar panel. Hira Ratan Manek (of commonly known as HRM) says that gazing at the sun can heal the mind, body, and spirit of anyone. HRM has gone on extremely long fasting periods made possible by gazing at the sun. The sun has been benefiting HRM in more ways than one for many years.
What are the benefits of sun gazing?
Sun gazing offers many benefits, but these are the top seven.
1. Relieves stress and tension built through the day.
2. Increase one’s energy levels.
3. Helps produce serotonin and melatonin, two hormones that make a person feel good.
4. Improves eyesight.
5. Reduces hunger pains because the body becomes nourished by the sun.
6. stimulates and increases size of the pineal gland in the brain.
7. Releases internal blockages.
Studies that prove that sun gazing works
The first fast that was studied took place in India and was conducted from 1995 to 1996 by Dr. C.K. Ramachandran under the supervision of 21 doctors and scientists. That first study lasted a total of 211 days. The second fast studied went on for 411 days. That was over a year with absolutely no food, and just nourishment from the sun! The third study ever conducted what done at the Thomas Jefferson University and the University of Philadelphia and lasted 130 days, not as long as the studies in India, but 130 days is still a lot of days to go without eating.
Some skeptics argue thatHira Ratan Manek has a genetic mutation that allows him to fast for so long, and his methods won’t work on regular people. We don’t know if this is the case or not, but why not give sun gazing a shot? What harm can it do to try?
Vinny Pinto, a scientist, conducted a study on 56 participants who gave sun gazing a try, then surveyed them after their period of sun gazing was over.
·Sun gazers who gazed at the wrong time of day reported adverse effects.
·Women experienced more health benefits than the men did from proper sun gazing.
·31 out of the 56 reported a significant increase in energy, while only 1 reported decreased energy.
·The ones who sun gazed for more than a year for at least 4 times a week, claimed to feel a decreasing need for food.
·Half of the participants experienced a decreased need of food while half, except for 1, had no change.
The most common emotions among the group were joy, peace, bliss, and calmness.
·Nobody in the study was found to have any decrease of health. Everyone reported that they had either the same health as when they started, or improved health.
How do you sun gaze?
HRM’s method of sun gazing is the only known method that seems to cause strictly positive effects if done correctly, and no other method has worked like his has. Be careful if you choose to alter his method, because the sun’s UV rays can damage your eyes. You should stare at the sun at the recommended time and for the recommended amount of time so you don’t risk ruining your eyesight.
The best, safest times to look at the sun is 45 minutes before sunset and 45 minutes after sunrise.
Practice sun gazing barefoot with your bare feet touching the ground.
Step 1: Spend only 10 seconds on the first day gazing at the sun (make sure to do it during safe hours). Try to envision the energy of the sun entering your body andrejuvenatingyou.
Step 2: Aim for 20 seconds for the second day, and keep on adding 10 more seconds for each day ahead.
Step 3: Continue increasing your times until you reach 44 minutes. Depending on the weather, this could take 9-10 months.
Step 4: After this, watch the sun for 45 minutes for 6 days to complete the sun gazing cycle.
Step 5: After you’re finished with the cycle, continue to walk barefoot in the sunshine whenever you get the chance.
There is a possibility to get eye damage from the UV rays, but that’s only if you don’t gaze at the sun 45 minutes after it rises and 45 minutes before it sets. If you watch the sun at those times, your eyes will not be damaged afterwards.
To track your results, keep a journal and write down your daily progress. Take note of how you feel mentally and physically. If you want more information on this process, I suggest watching the documentary about sun gazing called “Eat The Sun”.
The best part of sun gazing is being able to have an excuse to go outside and connect with nature every single day. Even if the sun doesn’t affect your well-being, becoming closer with nature can make anyone feel at peace.
