After completing the sun gazing practice, you will then walk barefoot, Barefoot walking on bare earth anchors the solarized energies in your body, after which no further sun gazing or walking is required.
The practice of sun gazing entails looking at the rising or setting sun once a day, only during the safe hours. No harm will come to your eyes during the morning and evening safe hours. Safe sun gazing hours occur anytime within the one-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 exposure to ultraviolet and infrared rays that are harmful to our eyes. Sungazing also has the added advantage of producing vitamin D during the 1-hour safe period window. And if you sun gaze, the need for spectacles and their associated adjustments for the eye will go away. This method will provide better eyesight without glasses.
1. 0-3 Months
First day, during the safe hours, look directly at the sun for a maximum of 10 seconds. Second day, gaze for 20 seconds at the rising sun, adding ten seconds every succeeding day. So at the end of 10 continuous days of sun gazing, you will be looking at the sun for 100 seconds - i.e. 1 minute and 40 seconds. Stand on bare earth with bare feet. Your eyes can blink and/or flicker. Stillness or steadiness of the eyes is not required. Do not wear any lenses or glasses while sungazing. You can easily watch the rising or setting sun safely.
You can enjoy your food while applying this practice. Hunger will disappear eventually by itself. You may consider gazing from the same place at the same time daily. The sun energy or the sun rays passing through the human eye are charging the hypothalamus tract, which is the pathway behind the retina leading to the human brain. As the brain receives power through this pathway, it is activated into a "brainutor." This is the first phase of the method and lasts around 3 months.
Humans have good and bad qualities, which are two sides of the same coin. In the absence of sunlight, we develop bad qualities. When sunlight enters the brain, good qualities appear, replacing bad ones. Eventually, even spiritual ignorance goes away. Sometimes you can become confused from what you hear and read. But after 3 months of sun gazing, you develop a sense of confidence and know the answers for yourself spiritually. There evolves a balance of mind where you are in a position to judge personal answers - and the correct answers. Psychiatrists are observing that sadness is caused by lack of sunlight. With the practice of sungazing, you will not experience depression for an entire lifetime. You will achieve a perfect balance of mind. Fear of death will go away. The state of your mind is such that you will not fear death. That which is to happen, you will be able to let happen. There will be no worries. Everyone has some sort of mental disorder, which is the biggest human problem, but these can be removed by the proper use of sunlight.
2. 3-6 Months
70 to 80% of the energy synthesized from food is taken by the brain and is used up for fueling tensions and worries. With a lack of mental tension, the brain does not require the same amount of energy as before. As you proceed in sun gazing and as your tensions decrease, the need for food intake will decrease. When you reach 30 minutes duration of continuously looking at the sun, you will slowly be liberated from physical disease because by then all the colours of the sun will have reached the brain through the eye. The brain regulates the flow of color prana [life force] appropriately to the respective organs. All the internal organs are receiving an ample supply of the required color prana. Each vital organs are dependent on a certain sun color prana: Kidney, red; Heart yellow; Liver, green; etc. The colors reach the organs and address the deficiencies, if any.
In solariums there is usually a platform at the height of 100 feet where 7 glass cabinets are constructed for each of the VIBGYOR colors of the rainbow. This platform revolves around the sun the whole day and, according to the nature of the disease diagnosed, the patient is placed in the appropriate color for healing. Similarly, glass drinking water bottles with different colors are kept in sun for 8 hours. The water gets solarized and water develops medicinal value and is used to treat different diseases. Photosynthesis, which we misunderstand, does not in fact require chlorophyll. Only the plant kingdom needs chlorophyll. The human body can process sunlight with a different medium. Photosynthesis transforms sun energy into a usable energy format. This is how photovoltaic cells produce electricity, how water is heated, food is cooked in solar cooker, and solar batteries operate automobiles.
The eyes receive the entire spectrum of sunlight, which then is distributed to different parts of the body by the brain on a need-per-need basis. As a result, you are cured from all diseases. An intermediate food medium is avoided. As you continue gazing at the sun, energy is no longer being used up for mental impairments or physical ailments; thus its storage level increases in your body. You are your own master within 6 months.
3. 6-9 Months
You will start to utilize the original form of micro food within 6 months. Additionally, you can avoid the toxic waste that you take into your body when you eat regular food. You will see, in course of time that your hunger is in decreasing state. No one needs to eat more than his or her hunger levels. Hunger comes because of the body's energy requirements, which are a must for its existence. Food is not a necessity for the body to function; only energy is. Conventionally, you are indirectly receiving sun energy while eating food, which is a by-product of sun energy. If there is no sunlight, no food can grow. As you consume the original form of food, hunger decreases, starting to disappear eventually. By eight months, you should see hunger almost gone. For a dull or weak student or with no belief, this time period may be 9 months or 44 minutes. After that time, hunger disappears forever. All mechanisms associated with hunger-like aroma, cravings, and hunger pangs also disappear. Moreover, energy levels remain at a higher level. Having had this experience, I can testify that the brain is now well activated with sun energy.
4. After 9 Months
A person should abandon sun gazing after 9 months. The body will get discharged after six days when you stop practicing, and it has to be recharged. The second practice after sun grazing is to start walking barefoot on bare earth for 45 minutes daily for a total period of 365 days. The walking should be relaxed walking only, no need to walk briskly, jog or run. Any time in the day is fine, however it is recommended to do that when the earth is warmer and sunlight is falling on your body. When you walk barefoot, an important gland in the brains center called the pineal gland, or the third eye, is activated. The big toe of the foot represents this gland. It has always been known as the "seat of the soul." The pineal gland has optic nerve endings. The remaining four toes represent glands too - the pituitary, hypothalamus, thalamus and amygdala. The amygdale gland, a nucleus of the sun or cosmic energy, plays a major role in the photosynthesis process of how sunlight reaches the brain through the eye. When you walk barefoot, your body weight stimulates all these 5 glands through your toes. This is strengthened by the earth heat and the sun prana falling on the head or the crown chakra. All these create a magnetic field and the body or brain recharges with the sun energy entering into you.
If you want your memory and concentration power or intelligence to increase, bare foot walking is an effective exercise. As you increase the suns heat on your feet, the brain will activate more and more, which will result in more activity of the pineal gland. The pineal gland has certain psychic and navigational functions.Different body parts and organs become purified once you stop eating due to detoxification. Different internal organs play different mechanical roles for the purposes of space travel and flight. There are other uses other than food digestion for the internal organs. All the glands have a lot of functions and can perform at optimal level via sun energy.
