Before starting Sun Gazing you should do your due diligent to research and become well informed about the subject. The internet (google) and the library are great to find out why people do it and how far it goes back. Most importantly, before you begin you should have your eyes examined so you have a gauge of a before and after report or data.

The biggest thing is what people say or think they know about gazing at the sun. People will tell you that you will damage your eyes or worse go blind if you stare at the sun for too long, because that's what's been passed on for many years. Again do your research so you have the information yourself and make a decision based on your findings first hand and not just believing it because it's the popular thing out there. Remember this, in the past people of authority believed and taught everyone that the world was flat and that the earth was the center of the universe, how wrong were they?

This is a video of my sun gazing ritual that I do every morning. I just started June 12, 2012 and I posted this July 18, 2012, so just a little over a month but will keep this up to date as I continue my journey. I did some personal research and some reading on the matter before I got started and so should you.

As of July 18 I am now at 18 and a half minutes, I just finished my session on this video. Here are my thoughts about it...

When I was younger living in the Philippines I played in the sun all day, except for the times we were inside the classroom and in the evenings. Most days was over 100 degrees Fahrenheit and it never bothered us because we grew up in that environment, that was the norm. Even though we did not stare at the sun we were exposed to the sunlight for very extreme duration. Personally I don't believe sun gazing will damage my eyes if I stay within the time lines and time frames. Below are my sun gazing ritual basics...

1. I wake up 30 to 60 minutes before sun gazing to allow my eyes to prepare and adjust.
2. I only do 30 seconds increments. (Some say 10 seconds, to me it's a slow process).
3. I prefer to sun gaze around an hour after sunrise and about an hour before sunset. I've tried the afternoon and during the day and I find the sunrise and sunset to be less harsh and more gentler on my eyes. Besides I've never known or heard of anyone who's gotten sunburn early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
4. I don't stare directly at the sun. You could if you want but I choose not to. I face the sun but my eyes look below, to the side or above the sun. Usually I focus my eyes at the leaves at the top of the tree or somewhere in the sky above the sun.
5. I relax, that's why I chose to sit by the front porch next to the fountain bear to help me become at ease and at peace by focusing on the water fountain sound. I sometimes do my sun gazing in the office upstairs sitting in a comfortable chair. This is part of my daily meditation so I want to make sure it's as comfortable as possible. I don't believe you have to be standing like most people think.
6. I surrounded myself with the house and pillars to block the wind so to help me not blink too much.
7. I have an alarm to let me know when my time is up.
8. I am barefooted, but not always. I prefer it because it just feels good on the bottom of my feet. Besides I'm usually barefooted around the house all day since I work from home. I don't believe it really makes a difference.

My theory is... every living thing on earth depends on the sun and its energy and nutrients to help us grow and survive. I know the difference within me when I don't get enough sunlight and when I stay indoors too long. I feel the lack of energy and unmotivated and sometimes feeling down without even knowing it until I walk outside and get some sunlight, then I feel alive again. The sun provides us with vitamins and minerals so I love the sun, specially the early morning and very late in the afternoon sun for gazing.

By the way for those concerned, melanoma (skin cancer) occurs in areas of the body not usually exposed to the sunlight, like your thighs and buttocks... anyways back to sun gazing.

I think we all know that the sun is healthy and necessary for survival. The sun and its energy when absorbed by the skin is the best way to get Vitamin D and other nutrients. My thinking is that the eyes are the only part of our body that the blood vessels are exposed to the environment. So if the skin absorbs the sun and becomes the source for Vitamin D and other benefits, then through the eyes the blood vessels can capture the sun and its energy of nutrients and gets distributed throughout our internal organs and every cells within us as the hearth pumps and circulates the blood throughout our body.
