Once sun-gazing was common all over the world with almost all cultures and religions. Thanks to HRM (Hira Ratan Manek) this method is now accepted as a popular health practice known as the phenomenon of HRM sun-gazing.’ The HRM phenomenon is in fact a rediscovery of a scientific ritual, which was used to heal physical, mental, emotional and spiritual diseases in ancient times. Ancient Indians called this practice Surya Namaskar, where ancient Egyptians and Americans called it Heliotherapy and Europeans called it Apollo therapy…Traditionally, human beings eat secondary sources of energy as the plants and other vegetation depends heavily on the sun for their growth, simply put, the idea here is to learn how to absorb energy from the primary source, that is, the sun itself.”
“The safe hours are anytime within the 1-hour window after sunrise or anytime within the 1-hr window before sunset. It is scientifically proven beyond a reasonable doubt that during these times, one is free from UV and IR rays exposure”
How to Practice Safe Sun-gazing
- Practice it in the morning, within an hour of sunrise or/and sunset (it’s safer when the sun is closest to the earth)
- Remove contacts or glasses and don’t sun-gaze through windows.
- Look directly at the sun for 10 seconds and build up to 30 minutes a day (5 minutes is a pretty safe starting point for most)
- On cloudy days, gaze at the position where the sun is behind the clouds
- Set your intentions into the sun as part of your daily meditation practice.
- ‘Also visualise the light going into the front of your chakras, all your trillions of cells, your organs, into the centre of your brain especially to the parts where you have any pain’ (Michaela Light)
You may notice you’re much happier when you’re in places where the sun is more abundant but ‘it is only through the eyes that the light from the sun reaches the brain and creates beneficial effects in the brain’.
‘There is a scientific explanation of what may be occurring during the exercise of this method. Since the brain is a powerful recipient and the retina and the pineal gland (third eye) being equipped with photoreceptor cells, a kind of photo analysis could be taking place during the Surya Namaskar, which provides a person with all kinds of energy and vitamins that are required for the proper functioning of his internal organs.’
