Sungazing is exactly what the word implies. Gazing at the sun. The sun is always there, whether it’s a clear day or not, giving life to so many and sustaining the earth. It warms us and provides us with vitamin D.
It is important to singaze slowly and safely. During the first and last hours of daylight in the morning, it is best to start working. Our eyes are able to absorb light from the sun because the UV index is low and the sun’s rays are not as powerful. If you stare directly at the sun, you can damage your retina.
According to tradition, sungazing feeds the optic nerve between the eyes and the brain. Biophotons, which are made up of photons and light, are absorbed by our brains and stimulated. Human health and well-being have been demonstrated to be improved by this.
The way we live is not the way it used to be. With new ideas and innovations, we can reach the pinnacle of success in an instant. However, the rapid changes of today have caused many people to lose their connection with nature. This has been damaging to the planet, as well as our well-being. Luckily, there is a solution to the problem. Sun gazing is a form of meditation that allows us to reconnect with this natural life force. In its most basic form, it involves looking at the sun and being charged by its energy, which we can then take away and harness in our day-to-day life.
Some of the benefits of Sun-gazing are listed below:
1. Regulate hormones and circadian rhythm
Sungazing is the practice of getting sunlight in between the hours of sunrise and sunset. There are many health benefits that come with it. If you’re looking for a way to relax your mind and body, and feel a renewed sense of energy, sungazing could be a good option for you. Even though some might be skeptical about the health benefits of sunlight, studies have shown that sunlight can help regulate melatonin levels, leading to better sleep.
2. Improves sleep
What happens when you get a little bit of sun in the morning? Your melatonin levels might be increased and you might feel a lot more energized. Sunlight can also have benefits to your sleep-wake cycle. People who were exposed to sunlight in the morning were able to fall asleep more quickly at night, and that sunlight may be effective in the treatment of sleep conditions such as insomnia.
3. Eases skin conditions
There are many benefits of sunlight exposure for the skin. One of the benefits is that it helps improve acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Other than having a healthy skin, there are other benefits that you can gain from the sunlight. You will get vitamin D from it, which helps to prevent chronic disease like cancer and heart disease. Sungazing, also known as sun bathing, is an ancient healing practice that is currently undergoing a resurgence in popularity. It is a sun-centered practice that utilizes the power of the sun’s rays to aid with overall health and well-being. There are many benefits of sungazing, some of which are listed below.
4. Reduce risk of some cancers
For a long time, many experts have warned about the dangers of sun exposure and how it can increase your risk of cancer. A study conducted in 2014 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that skin cancer rates among African Americans were higher than in any other ethnic group. Another study conducted by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences found that people who spend between two and three hours per day in the sun had a lower risk of certain cancers, such as skin cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer.
5. Beneficial effects on the eyes
A study from 2017 found an association between increased UVB exposure and reduced nearsightedness. You can receive UVB exposure by simply sitting outside.
The benefits of sun gazing for the eyes or improving myopia have not been proven. There is widespread agreement among medical professionals that looking directly at the sun can cause eye damage.
6. Positive effects on mental health
Sun exposure has the following mental health benefits:
- Dopamine and serotonin levels increase
- leading to a better mood
- as well as fewer depression symptoms
The purpose of sungazing?
It is believed that sungazing, an ancient daily ritual, has a positive effect on mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. By connecting to the sun and feeling its nourishment, this practice is said to be enhanced.
With proper sun gazing, calcifications within the pineal gland are also said to decalcify. A study, conducted by Hira Ratan Manek (HRM), showed that his pineal gland corresponded to a size nearly three times greater than the average man. Starting with ten seconds, HRM recommends doubling it every day until safe hours are reached. The time you have been building up will take you around 15 minutes at the end of 3 months. During ongoing Sungazing, HRM stresses the importance of a diet rich in color, especially one that is rich in all colors. In addition, he advises to stop increasing at 44 seconds. This is also suggested to alleviate problems with the pineal gland, which is represented by the big toe, as well as the pituitary, hypothalamus, thalamus, and amygdala, which are all integral to the general functioning of the body.
We are connected to our third eye through the pineal gland. We have an intuitive sense. Perhaps this practice beckons to you, since the pineal gland is a master gland and also controls sleep and waking cycles.
