How to Sungaze "Why do we watch the sunrise? Why do we concentrate on it?

In order to learn to mobilize all our thoughts, all our desires, and all our energies, and to dire ct them toward the realization of the highest ideal. A person who works to unify the many chaotic forces that pull him in every direction and to project them in a single, luminous and salutary direction becomes such a powerful centre that h is presence, like the sun, is able to radiate through space. Yes, he who manages to control the tendencies of his lower nature can spread these blessings over t he whole of humanity, and he becomes a sun. He lives in such freedom that he exp ands the field of his consciousness to include the entire human race, to which h e sends the abundance of light and love that pour forth from him. " --by Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov?? ? First of all, let it be understood that HRM (Hira Ratan Manek) achieved his resu lts in a very controlled environment under strict Jain principles. Also, there are many different sungazing practices from cultures around the globe. Some of which are relatively recent and some are as old as the hills. There were some c ultures where you could get imprisoned for staring at the sun (only certain prie sts were allowed). HRM s method is simply one method. In stating that; yes, the s un has enormous power. Yes, you may tap into higher spiritual realms as well as other time and space dimensions. Yes, you can live without food. Yes, you may a llow other entities into your space and end up with metallic aliens dancing on y our bed (true story). If you chose to embark upon the journey of sungazing, please heed the advice th at slow and steady wins the race. I do not recommend this practice to anyone. I f the sun seems or feels to bright, well then, don t look at. If you chose to par take, be very careful, take your time, be cautious, be humble and document your progress. You can damage your eyes from sungazing, just as you can burn your feet from wal king on fire. I have participated in both practices, my feet and my vision are in perfect working order. We are all wired a bit differently; therefore it is i mpossible to predict how each individual will process the suns brilliant light. If you wish to partake, by all means enjoy the daily practice. Truly embrace the beginning (or ending) of the day. Feel all the joy the sun has to offer and of course, if it amuses you to wear a purple top hat while sungazing; then by al l means, make it a beauty. Remember this the information here is not set in stone, it is simply one man s sug gestion. In fact, this is my interpretation of a man s suggestion. Depending on life style and location every person may carve out their own form of sungazing. Understand that because of the many differences to take into consideration, t he results will most likely be different as well. And that is ok, whatever expe riences you experience are still yours and yours alone. HRM's Protocol ??Depending on the weather and the level of commitment this is o nly a nine month to a year practice. Once you reach 44 minutes of sungazing you are finished. You should not have the need to stare at the sun any longer, your sungazing is complete. ??Sungazing is to be practiced standing bare footed on ba re earth. ??Without shoes you can stand on sand, gravel, mud, or bare earth. You r bare feet should be in contact with the bare earth. Try to avoid standing on t ar, concrete, granite, stone or even on grass (the grass absorbs the solar energ y). If you happen to stand on any other surfaces, that is fine, the results may simply be a bit different or arrive a bit slower.??While the sun is low on the horizon the intensity of the rays will be at a minimum. During this time, the su n's rays are tolerable, and the UV radiation is lower, so the potential of harmi ng your eyes is lower. Use common sense within these parameters, if the sun is t oo bright and it feels as though it may be burning your eyes, don't stare at it.

how is your mental. relax the muscles in your face and eyes. Some change will occur to reach these peaks. At 44 minutes you are finished with the HRM s method of sungazing. vitamins and minerals then the sunset. Relax your jaw. To Begin As the sun rises over the horizon simply gaze at the whole glowing ball of light for 10 seconds only. let go of all thoughts and become immersed in the moment. Feel every tissue filled with the regenerative and healing properties tha t the sunlight imparts on your body. your mind a nd thoughts. sort of like watching television. knees bent with your arms at your sides. Depending on weather this may only take nine or ten months. ??There is no need to maintain an unblinking. There may be many different reactions. If at least three months are committed to the sungazing practice (reaching 15 minutes of staring time) some sort of change of your perce ption of your world will occur. look at it. Nonetheless. Be careful and always listen to your body. ??Sungazing causes h ungers to diminish? There are many theories. sensations and experiences . and as the minutes of sungazing inc rease. Be positive and open-minded. ??Don t squint. your feelings and your physical body. and every cell in your body. emotional and phy sical state as the sun fills every atom. total rejuvenation.The best time to learn about your limits is right as the sun rises or a minute or so before it sets. when we release our physical and emotional energetic blockages these changes will become trivial relative to the incredible expansive ness of the universe. and try gazing at the rising sun. your perceptions may alte r circumstances. vibrating at dif ferent frequencies. stare. You only need the sunrise or the sunset. ??Once you are comfortable with the conce pt of sungazing feel free to increase gazing time at a constant rate of 10 secon ds per day. You may notice an amazing increase in your overall energy as well as your physical stamina and positivism. Remember. Let go. At every turn there are lessons to be learned. According to HRM the sunrise holds more energy. every electron. facial muscles or eyes. The more o pen and relaxed the muscles are in your body the more oxygen and energy is able to flow within your cells. Be aware of how the sunlight actually cleanses and rebuilds the whole of your being. you can recharge each cell and atom to its full potential. until you are comfortable and relaxed with the e ntire concept of staring into the sun. ??We are all energetic beings. Subtle slow increments of time are important for allo wing for the rods and cones within the anatomical structure of the eye to adapt to the intense levels light. What to Expect ??Sungazing can be used as a tool for tapping into your human p otential. all of which include understanding . Blink as and when it naturally happ ens. and then more light will be allowed in. feel all there is to feel. at which point you should be fully charged.??You have at your disposal an incredible amount of electricity to make things happen in your world. Go figure. It is yours and yours only. ene rgetically it is a beautiful balance of yin and yang. both may be a bit much. Stand at peace. Try to become aware of what your body is feeling.??Increase the sungazing time by 10 seconds each day until you have reached 44 minutes. The key is to be relaxed. If you feel yourself sq uinting. you may begin to change from the inside out. a beautiful pulsing orb. the awareness of your energetic being may heighten dramatically. just like in mediation. Change can be un comfortable. You may find it helpful to get a watch or employ a friend to keep ta bs on your staring time. By comple tely surrendering to the suns greater power.??If you choose to get up with the chickens. after about 3-7 seconds of continuous gazing all t he brightness generally goes away and you are left staring into a soft ball of p ure white light. Simply. It may be helpful to become object ive in your approach to life. whatever happens to you is perfect. so we should be comfortable with the concept that all of us are different. By rushing about you will not find what y ou are looking for any faster. With the aid of sunlight. Stay relaxed and recepti ve for greater assimilation of the beneficial aspects of the sun's rays. For the first few moments you look into t he sun it may be very bright. awareness may prove to be an essential ingredient. Personally I recommend the sunrise. ??Increase the time you gaze at the sun by a few seconds each day say by 5 seconds or so per day. N o stress or strain on the face. Let the light in.
