NASA Confirms -Super Human Abilities Gained

sungazing1

Ever wanted to be in more than one place at a time?  That’s right, I’m talking about the super-human abilities that can be gained by those who follow the protocol for what’s known as sun-gazing, a valid practice recently confirmed by NASA.  Many proponents of this ancient technique, used by many cultures such as Mayan, Egyptian, Aztec, Tibetian and Indian yoga, report not only healing benefits to common illnesses, but obtaining super-human abilities such as advanced telepathy and going completely without the need for food.

What is Sun Gazing?

Sun gazing (also known as sun-eating) is a strict practice of gradually introducing sunlight into your eyes at the lowest ultraviolet-index times of day – sunrise and sunset.  Those who teach the practice say there are several rules to the practice.  First, it must be done within the hour after sunrise or before sunset to avoid damaging the eyes.  Second, you must be barefoot, in contact with the actual earth – sand, dirt or mud; and finally, you must begin with only 10 seconds the first day, increasing by 10 second intervals each day you practice.  Following these rules make the practice safe, says sources.

Nikolai Dolgoruky of the Ukraine calls himself a ‘sun-eater’.  He has been practicing sun gazing for the past 12 years and has largely subsisted off solar energy since he began.  Others have reported losing the need for food after only 9 months of sun gazing (by which time the practitioner has worked up to a maximum of 44 minutes).  After 9 months of practice, you need only walk barefoot on the earth for 45 minutes per day, 6 days in a row to further the process of what has been initiated by sun gazing.

Sun-gazing is a practice also called the HRM phenomenom, coined as such after Hira Ratan Manek, the man who submitted himself to NASA for scientific testing to confirm that he does indeed possess the almost ‘super-human’ ability of not eating, gained through his dedication to this interesting marvel.  Funded by NASA, a team of medical doctors at the University of Pennsylvania observed Hira 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 100 days.   NASA confirmed that he was indeed able to survive largely on light with occasionally a small amount of buttermilk or water during this time.

What happens to the body during Sun Gazing?

During your first 3 months of practice, the suns energy is moving through the eyes and charging the hypothalamus tract, says those who have studied this technique and used it.  The hypothalamus tract is the pathway to the rear of the retina which leads to the brain.  The brain then, over time, becomes activated by the energy supply being received by the sun.  You will first experience a relief of mental tension and worry, since most worry is fueled by the energy received by the foods we eat.  Since food gets it’s energy from the sun, it is said to be readily available to sun-eaters without the trouble of digestion.  Though hunger is said to eventually cease, it is fine to continue eating regularly during initial stages, until appetite disappears naturally.

Another benefit early on is said to be an increase in confidence and an ability to easily solve your problems, as you are without tension.  Everyone has at least a bit of psychosis, but during the first few months of sun gazing practice, it is reported that these attitudes go away and a positive nature gracefully replaces the old persona full of fears.  By the end of 3 months, the gazing time will have increased to 15 minutes per day.

Reports on sun gazing say that the bad qualities normally associated with any person will gradually disappear and good qualities will remain, explaining that ‘bad qualities’ only develop in the absence of sunlight.  Bad qualities like anger, fear, jealousy, lust – are said to disappear – and be replaced by a certain confidence and ‘spiritual knowing’ that senses more purely the heart of an issue.

At 3-6 months of gazing, the studies show that physical diseases start to disappear.  They say that by the time one is gazing 30 minutes per day (building up 10 seconds per day) all the colors of the sun will have reached the brain.  Color therapists attribute their healing of certain diseases to flooding the body and brain with the particular color that is lacking – depending on the ailment.  For example, in liver disease, the color green is deficient.  The kidneys need red, and the heart, yellow.  All of the organs and all of the systems are said to respond to different colors of the rainbow, which is why it is also recommended to eat a diet rich in a variety of colors.  It is recommended during the 3-4 month period that you use autosuggestion to see your body already healed of any perceived weakness or disease.  This action will facilitate the process of returning to wholeness.

As you continue the process, it is reported that after 6 months, the energy stored from the technique is no longer being used for repairing the body or the mind and can move now into supporting you in gaining more super-human abilities.

What’s Beyond Healing?

By seven and a half months of gazing, now at 35 minutes, need and desire for food is dwindling.  According to sun gazing experts, food is not actually needed to maintain the body, only energy – and ‘sun-eating’ provides that energy.  By 9 months, all taste for food, including aroma, all hunger pains and cravings disappear.  Those who make it this far say that they report a noticeable ‘change’ in the way their brain feels – like it’s “charged up.”  After 9 months of sun-gazing – reaching a maximum of 44 minutes – it is advised that you give up sun-gazing and redirect your attention now to the Earth.

For 6 days straight, one is to walk barefoot on the earth, 45 minutes per day.  During this barefoot walking, the pineal gland is said to become activated.  Professional sun gazers and those researching the science say that each toe is connected to a specific gland, and by walking barefoot on the Earth, you activate these glands.  The big toe is thought to be aligned with the pineal gland, the second toe with the pituitary, then the hypothalamus, thalamus and finally the pinky toe correlates to the amygdala.  Walking barefoot, with the sun now falling on the top of your head, practitioners claim to create a sort of magnetic field in and around your body that recharges you and your brain.

Apparently this walking barefoot part is the most important aspect of the practice.   As you continue walking on the Earth, this is when the magic really begins.  The pineal gland is activated more and more by this walking  procedure.  Intellect is said to increase, along with memory. The pineal gland has navigational and psychic capabilities, meaning telepathy, the possibility of flight… now we are getting somewhere!  Have you ever thought you would like to have your body in more than one place at a time?  Well, sun-gazing is said to be the magical key to such abilities.

If you can barefoot walk 45 minutes every day for a year – you are golden.  At that point, only a maintenance of 3-4 days a week is necessary to maintain the capabilities you have acquired.

Are there any dangers?

Doctors and  eye care professionals caution against looking directly at the sun, saying that it will damage the retina.  However, if done correctly, sun-gazing at the correct times of day, studies show there is no risk of damaging the eyes.  Those who have been sun gazing for many years have had their eyes checked to show no damage, though it is advised that you have your eyes checked in the first few weeks of your practice, so you can know for yourself.

To sum it all up…

Remember, it’s 10 seconds the first day, at sunrise or sunset, adding 10 seconds per day each day there after.  After 90 days of accumulative gazing equaling 44 minutes, you cease the gazing and start the barefoot walking 45 minutes per day for 6 days.  At this point, I could imagine, hey – if you made it this far, what’s a year of barefoot walking an hour per day to keep it all?  You will have to try it out and see for yourself.

If you are really interested in gaining super-human abilities, confirmed by reputable organizations like NASA, as the ones mentioned above, sun gazing sounds like a fairly straightforward path to enlightenment.  To find out more about sun-gazing and how others have done it, visit the website on Sun-Gazing.

    If this was true, I’m quite sure than animals would have been doing this throughout the ages. So which animals “sungaze”? And perhaps any beneficial effects might be from stopping to relax and “earthing” which DEFINITELY has a known benefit and is done by all animals in nature. Earthing can make you feel calmer, etc. And how can sun gazing possibly provide your body with minerals and vitamins? And don’t be stupid and tell me you don’t need them! The sun creates those by means of the food you eat. But I’m off to gaze at the sun for 10 seconds each dawn or sunset – I’ll just call it “meditation” and food for the mind – NOT to be confused with food for the BODY!

          Your body is an alchemical laboratory. Where do you think gold and other precious metals come from? Ancient giants! Sound ludicrous, then search “mud fossils” on youtube to learn the real story. Your body has gold. Maybe a small amount for your size but humans in the past were MUCH bigger. Research jainism also for references to giants of the past. I have went 3 years without food (only water) in 1999-2001 and 2 months during that period dry fasting. Anyone can do it, that is able to break free from the mind matrix we are born into.

    For your information, I do it irregularly (excluding the bare feet. I need to do that one.), and my eyes have steadily improved. I removed my corrective lenses from my license, I see farther with no squint, and my appetite has reduced to about 1 1/2 meals a day. Sometimes two. Very small appetite for the most part.

    It is a fact that NASA denies any involvement in such an experiment. Indeed, all experiments on sun-eating had to be stopped after a few days due to observations that the health of the claimant were declining and risking shutting down their kidneys. Severe dehydration is an observable confirmation that these claims are false. If they could get their nourishment from light alone, this observable condition would not happen. The opposite would happen (an absence of symptoms of dehydration).

    People, don’t do this. There is plenty of documented cases where people died trying this and ZERO documented cases of this ever actually happening as described.

    Here’s the thing, NASA is the most transparent government agency in the US and it has no record of ever having contact with this man.
    Honestly I’d love for us to discover we can live off of sunlight and water, but I’m pretty sure if it could be done, people in Africa would’ve been doing it for years already, also good news for the homeless.

    However; the reasoning behind this is that most of our food gets the energy from the sun (plants) but plants have specific processes by which they synthesize sunlight into energy and nutrients. However; this process is done in conjunction with the soil or water in which the plant is rooted.
    Unless you can grow roots in order to stare at the sunrise for 44 minutes, you cannot synthesize any of those nutrients.

    However; I would still encourage people to look at the sun at sunrise and sunset because 1, your vitamin D levels will be great, and 2, because it’s the only time you are able to directly stare at the sun and that’s pretty cool.
    But please, don’t stop eating, and whatever you do don’t stop drinking water…. please.

      Yes, Tenacious D, all matter is energy vibrating at various frequencies. To control our individual frequencies is the most rewarding, and difficult, powers to master that, nonetheless, we do possess. To quiet our busy minds and truly be present can prove to be elusive at times. To have ones eyes closed in meditation and not paint images with the mind or view ghost images from our last retinal exposure to light is difficult for me at times.Once those annoyances cease and a true vision of an event yet to happen occurs, I can think of no greater joy…

Our bodies are full of electric pulses (neurology) which the sun strengthens the neural functions which cause me and others to think clearer.

    Every so often you read or research something that does have some foundation scientifically, and this may well be one of those articles, I recently explored the events with fluoride in water, and how it steals electrons from the body. The process described in this article mirrors some of my findings. As an example, if we absorb light or photons from the sun that cause a photo-chemical reaction in the brain, then that photo-chemical reaction requires electrons for the reaction to take place, so it will use up electrons that are stored in the body for the process, now take this a step further and earth the body to the ground and then you create a flow of electrons for the reaction from the ground to the photo-chemical reaction and then back to the ground and in the process you recharge your body with electrons that it may have a deficiency of. The basic question is do we or did we used to use a method of photosynthesis just like a plant does to absorb some of it’s electron requirements?. Basically a plant anchors itself to the earth and carries out a photo-chemical reaction with the light from the sun in a similar manner.

    it’s interesting to see the disbelief in it. what’s even more interesting is the fact that the people who don’t believe in it, are either coming up with rude jokes, smart remarks, or just judging the sun gazers in general. if you don’t believe it then that’s on you. fact is more and more people are starting to become proof. even if you think it’s silly. The people sun gazing has benefited will be here even if you don’t believe them or not.

    You should totally smoke cigarettes. Nicotine is so super beneficial to you. It removes your body’s hunger craving and removes stress everytime you light up. Sure the Surgeon General and doctors will tell you that cigarettes can kill you or lead to serious health problems, but hey, what do they know. After all, we the people know more than these empty theorists do anyways. We can make the rules out to be whatever we want and it will all work out just fine.

    You sir, are a bit over the deep end with this. Have you never seen how many people have died across the world from a lack of food? Starvation is real, and your body will eat whatever it needs to to survive, including whatever it may have stored inside you. Your explanation of what you believe to be true is like saying, “If you don’t use your muscles, they don’t go away, they just go into a state of waiting, but you are not any less strong than you were before.” Except that your muscles do break down and become like marshmellows. Its called atrophy, and oh yeah, that can happen to the rest of your body too. Anyone who belives this garbage is adding to the laughter being provided by there being even one individual that does. Suicide is suicide, no matter how you slice it.

    About NASA and Hira Ratan Manek:
    “After a thorough check with all its scientific officers and regional offices throughout the US over two days, a NASA spokesperson has denied it had invited Hira Ratan Manek in any official capacity, or that it has anything to do with him. Recent news reports had stated that Manek, a 64-year-old mechanical engineer, who claims he has not eaten in eight years and lives on water and solar energy, had been invited by NASA to New York to show them how it was done. However, NASA spokesperson Dolores Beasley said she had no idea why press reports had claimed that NASA had invited Manek. “No one checked with us,” said Dolores, public affairs officer for biological and physical research. “We have no record of him being involved with us. We have checked with all offices doing related research at centers such as Johnson, Marshall and Ames.”

    Either way, until I see multiple studies done by legitimate scientists and/or groups I will no believe in this psuedo-scientific practice beyond the belief that there is a placebo that makes you believe you are less hungry and that you are not sick.

      Remember that are bodies are electrical. That is why the sun increased the energy in your body which increased the elimination speed. Exercise or just summer temperatures can also speed up the elimination system but in a different way. Everyone is always losing weight because the body is constantly eliminating what we put in it. It eliminates it in a way that uses our entire body so we get the illusion that we are filling or building our bodies but it’s really just eliminating and since that process takes time, it accumulates in the body in the mean time. Some foods are very addicting because the unbalance our body to such a degree that our body has to compensate in the same degree. If this is done habitually then it sets up a habit and the reminder the body gives you to do your part is the feeling we call hunger.

        Absolutely nothing you typed in this article made sense. If the “elimination” (AKA Krebs Cycle is what I think you are referring) is quickened, that would imply that she would need to intake more food to make up for this quickening. With that said, sunlight CANNOT and I repeat CANNOT be converted to usable energy in the human body. We do not have chlorophyll or photovoltaic cells. Study up on it, this is so untrue it hurts.

It happened with people claiming we could go into space. Ridicule you as you may, but our energy comes from food powered by the sun. It’s the source of energy for the planet. It directly effects us so to think this article is completely asinine is arrogant. As for countries that don’t get enough sun, they are usually the ones with an over industrialized nation with no regards to the atmosphere, causing smog, and haze. Kinda harmful to us humans and everything else. Perhaps if more people practiced this, we would have clearer open minded thinkers. Don’t call yourself a scientist if you automatically brush off something you haven’t experimented with. It kinda goes against the nature of enjoying the search for Knowledge thru trail.

        During Sungazing, keep in mind that it induces a trance like state. I don’t expect superhuman powers. I look at the fact that I no longer take antidepressant medications and all my blood work came back normal for a change. My doctor (not a quack) has said that such activities activate the “feel good” chemicals in the brain which in turns sends messages to other organs of the body helping it to repair itself. It’s not a luny thing. I don’t expect to fly around the world, however, it has helped me heal without the use of medications. That, in itself, is worth consideration.

            We are not capturing energy from the sun. I never look at the sun though I’ve practiced this in the past. Sunlight is not the only thing that is going on in a plants also. There are patents filed of ways to grow plants underground in a box with NO light. Sounds crazy but it works. It is not as simple as putting a plant underground but it does grow and ends up without the green color. I believe plants grow from an electrical magnetic effect instead of photosynthesis. Also cold roots and hot leaves pull the fluids up from the ground. You can grow bigger healthier plants by just adding magnetite to the soil. Some plants grow without any apparent source of nutrients such as aroids. Science says plants can also synthesize elements from the air such as beans getting nitrogen from the air and not the soil. It also doesn’t seem that the math for photosynthesis fully accounts for the amount of matter being created in a plant. Maybe the true source of life and energy in plants is just the soul that is occupying them. Certainly the soul has it’s own energy source so why can’t it be the source? Maybe because science doesn’t believe in the existance of the soul so they look for other possibilities?

I’ve noticed since I’ve stopped, the headached have been gradually coming back along with excruciaing pains in my knees from knee surgery as a teen. I have just started back up again, starting at 10 minutes and things are starting to feel great again. This time going all the way…. I was skeptical at first as well in the beginning, but done properly at the right times has been totally positive in my life physically, mentally and spiritually. No eye damage, as a matter of fact my eyesight has improved greatly since I started sungazing.

    I’m not sure if this works or not, but I will say this, I barely have to eat in the summer. I always figured it was because it was too hot and somehow the heat made it too uncomfortable to eat, but now I live in an area where the summer isnt as “hot” and humid as I was used to, but I still dont really need to eat. maybe its because of the longer hours of light exposure. Most people dont know what hunger is, and I do believe one can live with minimal food if under going the proper mental/spiritual treatment

    Reply
    • steve   August 6, 2013 at 12:50 pm

      You are right but it’s not the sun in the summer that gives us more energy, making it easier to not eat. What is happening is anytime the body is hot, it eliminates faster and easier and generally works better. Since the body is eliminating the junk faster and balancing the body quicker, the feeling of hunger disappears. Remember that the feeling of hunger is not the bodies signal that it needs more food or energy. It really seems that way which causes the confusion but what is really happening is the body is out of balance or more accurately the blood chemistry is out of balance. If you eat a piece of bread every morning at a certain hour and you do that for a number of days then it will set up a counter adjustment habit because the body is always trying to balance against what we put in the body. It’s better at it but takes a few days longer and in our culture, a few days is a lifetime! We want to be balanced now so we grab the bread or sugar or whatever we are habitually taking every day. If you stop the habit then after a few days, the desire goes away and goes away more and more each day. Just like if you had a smoking habit and decided to stop. You are not going to die, you are going to go through a painful readjustment but once you hit the bottom, it’s only up from that point as your body does its adjustment. This happens via the hypothalamus and pituitary/pineal.

    • steve   July 11, 2013 at 4:02 am

      I’m sorry but there really is no conversion going on here. The answer is really simple but as usual we like the complicated answers better 🙂 What is happening is the sun is energizing the pituitary via the hypothalamus via the optic nerve. This does help the pituitary increase it’s power so it can do it’s job better. It’s job is to just keep our blood in a balanced state. When we eat, we unbalance it but that is ok because the pituitary knows it’s job and it rebalances it. During these moments of imbalance, the body gets the sensation we call HUNGER. Hunger does not mean we are running out of energy. If it did then the feeling would gradually increase if we don’t eat, but it doesn’t. I’m sure everyone can remember a time when they couldn’t get to food and got distracted and noticed the feeling went away until they thought about food again. It’s just a reminder from the body to do what it’s use to you doing. Just a habit that can be broken.
      No body is being transformed in this process to look at the sun. Everyone is just addicted to a substance we call food. We call it food instead of drug because druggies usually use the technique of denial so they can continue doing what they are doing without guilt.
      I did sun gazing for about 3 years, up to 20 minutes in the morning and it does help the endocrine system get stronger, just like lifting weights makes the muscles stronger. A stronger pituitary means a stronger ability to keep our blood balanced which means less feelings of unbalance (hunger feelings). I stopped eating in 1999 and I would say it’s no more difficult than getting off of cigarettes. For some people that have tried that, it’s seemed impossible and they continue to smoke. It’s the same for eating. Some people try it but most go back because they don’t have the patience to wait for their body to balance their blood and prefer to try to do it quicker themselves with food or other drugs.
      The term breatharian is a misnomer. We don’t live on air. We are kept alive because a soul is always alive. Your car becomes active (alive) when we get in and dies when we get out. Same as the body except the body IS powered by the entering soul and dies when it exits. If it was kept alive by some external energy then upon death, it would still have activity and movement but instead it stops immediately when the soul leaves. I think that is the source of power until someone can prove otherwise.

          Get hurt doing what? Looking at the sun or not eating? Not eating doesn’t kill you and looking at the sun safely in the early morning or sunset isn’t a problem. Everyone is responsible for their own decisions to do whatever they decide to do. You can stop reading but I will continue posting 🙂

        billions of biochemical studies have proven otherwise, you need to maintain a certain blood glucose level to survive because your red blood cells and brain can’t really use any other source of fuel. The light energy from the sun, when it enters your eyes, activates a compound called rhodopsin and changes the pattern of action potentials of certain nerves which allows for light patterns to be interpreted by the brain. You don’t just funnel “light energy” along your nerves… that’s not how they’re designed.
        natural light is great and i believe people who argue it helped them improve depression, anxiety, or help their overall lifestyle may have a point. I can’t scientifically prove that these cases aren’t true. There may or may not be a soul, I don’t know. I won’t try and disprove that either bc i can’t, and you have every right to believe in it. But I know that you can’t survive without eating at least a little. again, it’s extremely well established in literature from all over the world.

          I don’t believe there is definitive proof of the digestive theory. In that theory how can you explain the fact that the feeling of hunger can come and go without eating anything to stop the hunger feeling. Anyone can try it. Wait until you get the feeling of hunger and then just don’t eat and instead, distract yourself with a book or whatever. Just not one about food 🙂 Then before you realize it, the hunger feeling has gone away. If the body is really powering itself from what we eat then why does that feeling go away and why does it come right after we THINK or hear about food? It is nearly a pavlov’s dog type reaction. If it was really a bodily signal that we are running out of energy then we should continue to run out of energy if we don’t eat, and the feeling should get more intense. The fact is, it doesn’t and even goes away if you don’t eat.

          Hunger is just the body reminding you to do what you USUALLY do and nothing more than that. If you wake yourself up at 3am to have a snack, even though you never had that habit before, you will soon wake yourself up just before 3 with a feeling of hunger.

    Nowhere do I see any reference to longevity. Does Sungazing decrease, extend or make no difference to one’s life during and after these ecstatic experiences while gazing east or westwards. My eyes are infinitely more important to me than longevity as is the health, peace and tranquility I benefit from a healthy AND tasty diet.
    Moreover the most peaceful hours of my day are with my dog and a book on one of my decks at dawn and dusk as those suns gaze upon me ! I doubt that it increases one’s longevity but it sure feels to me like it does.

    I can confirm this really does work. I’ve been doing it since I found out about it in 1999 and I stopped eating even before that because of other information I received. The surprise though about not needing food is that anyone can do it and it doesn’t require looking at the sun though that makes the body readjust itself faster so the process is easier. Anyone can stop eating just like anyone can stop smoking. You only die if you stop drinking good liquids which are necessary to flush out the remaining food residue. Stop eating and stop drinking and you certainly die. Stop eating but continue drinking and you do not! Food is ONLY a drug but one we have been addicted to since birth.

      Perhaps you can explain a few things to us, then:

      1) Why does every animal in nature, including humans, eat? Why do they die if they don’t eat? If it’s possible to survive without eating, why do creatures spend so much time and energy finding and consuming food? Why are there carnivores?
      2) Where exactly do you think all the thermodynamic energy to power your body comes from if you don’t eat?
      3) Do you feel guilty, deliberately misleading people and possibly persuading them to do things that are harmful to their health?

    Certainly a great practice with awesome benefits. But NASA never made this study and HRM was proven to be a fraud and completely lying about his ability to not eat.

    Also there are different ways of approaching this, not just the formula listed here. There are different traditions.

    But it is an interesting practice that you might want to check out.

      I agree. Can you list sources for other traditions and ways of approaching this? I’ve been on the Internet but the information is scarce so I’ve been looking into the Ancient Egyptians and how they went about this which is a tedious read since the information is in pieces. Still so much mystery but I wish to give this practice some true merit. I have an open mind, heart, and spirit. If others wish to bash me for it, there’s nothing I can do about it except to say that their opinions matter not. They don’t know me. I wish there was a way to be in contact with others that are doing this. It would be a great help.

      Thank you Surya, for pointing out that this is NOT backed or studied by any scientific research group. Science implies collecting data. Psuedo-science implies Psycho-somatically induced behaviors; which can be put to good use. Hypnotism uses these techniques, as does religion.

      There is some value to listing lots of “witness” testimonies, and visual “documentaries”…the Bible was very effective in convincing people that “miracles” have occurred and “afterlife” is a fact….causing many to live a happy life and die content…but again, there’s no proof of what you say…at all.

      If NASA confirmed this; the link to the data should be at the start of the testimony – or at least somewhere in the writing. It is no where to be found. If you want to proclaim a practice as healthful, avoid the charlatan strategies of falsely claiming a scientific study has confirmed it…it makes you look silly.

      From the Source listed above: “The HRM phenomenon is a much known practice of sungazing. The sungazer himself, Hira Ratan Manek (HRM) has practice sungazing and had proven that a person can survived for a very long period without eating foods. He submitted himself to NASA for scientific monitoring to prove the veracity of his claim. NASA reported that he was able to survive for extended periods solely on light and occasional beverage, water and buttermilk.”
      Due to funding from sources that would not support such claims, NASA denies having claimed such, but did in fact take part in the initial study. Say what you want. Try it yourself and you’ll know. Blessings

We, as a human race are more disconnected with the earth, sun, moon, and universe as a whole more now than we ever have been. This practice is truly a genuine one for those with an open mind. We are the Seekers. You don’t have to follow the practice of sungazing. Believe what you want to believe. This man doesn’t represent the few if us that actually partake in this ancient practice. I do it but I don’t go without food. I eat healthy and exercise as well. If it does diminish appetite, I haven’t noticed but what I do notice are the things most people miss. I canto explain it.

If you feel it’s too much, shift your eyes just above, below, or to the sides. You’re still getting the light as your eyes adjust. Blink, flicker your eyes if you need to but if it hurts too much, stop. Stick with sunrise as much as possible. I’d give you my email but then everyone here would have it.

      You should consider that the author of this blog is more a believer a religion they like to call “science” rather than actual science.

      You should be able to see from the authors negative reaction and belligerent tone that there is an obvious bias. We both know real science is without bias.

      The article only puts forth rhetoric that makes it sound like they have the truth on their side when they fail to actually disprove the claim.

      The German guru who did this may be mentally disturbed or just a fraud. The existence of people wanting to defraud others over something that is spectacular sounding does not disprove the actual phenomenon exists.

      Also, most practitioners do not make the claim that doing it gives the ability to instantly give up food and water. They say do what naturally you become inclined to do in the process.

      The Indian study does not prove that the man left the camera space to drink water or eat food. There may have been followers that visited him and gave him those of course but also he may not have taken them for all we know. Scientifically we have no proof. We do have belief and the author of this article strongly wants to believe something. And lastly, the Indian man appears to have no incentive to make the story up. He makes no money or charges people to be a “guru” like so many other western frauds do.

      Taking a conclusive opinion about this based off the article is not the best source to make such a determination.

    I have a question for anyone that does this as I am very much intrigued and have an open mind to try this. What do you do if there’s no sun? How do you substitute it on cloudy days and rainy days. Please, only serious replies.

      Still, if the direction of the sun can be discerned at all, just look at it as long as you wish given it dosen’t hurt. The healing comes from your perception being in sync with the sun itself. it aligns your mind and body to the frequency of the sun itself rather than the many things taking us out of center around us in the world.
      So just perceive at whatever level you can is key.
      The sun is the lifeforce of the universe incarnate. We as beings should be in it as much as possible basking in it’s radiance. Yet, we are not because of our sick society which has been mislead.

        There is no “the Sun” -there are several suns in THE Universe(incarnate)
        I thought your remark answered my question up till then…were you meaning the central sun in ours?

    Okay so now I’m going to jump into scientist mode since I really don’t want you to go blind. I’m just gonna say my peace and let it go, but I figure just throwing down some info shouldn’t hurt. I would REALLY appreciate it if you would would read this through and not get mad. I’m not one to start a debate or flame war, only trying to educate:

    Firstly, the fact that the article starts off with a blatant lie, that is even in the title (‘NASA confirmed’) should send up red flags. Why believe an article that is started on a lie? If this is not enough then here is science:

    From the article: “hypothalamus tract is the pathway to the rear of the retina which leads to the brain”. This is not true. There is no Hypothalamus tract – only the hypothalamus which is located near your brain stem and has nothing to do with the retina at all. It is, however, a link from the nervous system to the endocrine system by way of pituitary system (1). “You will first experience a relief of mental tension and worry,..” there is science behind this, generally known as relaxation when sitting still and actively letting go of tension(2); “since most worry is fueled by the energy received by the foods we eat. ” there is zero proof of this.

    “Though hunger is said to eventually cease,..” & “Everyone has at least a bit of psychosis, but during the first few months of sun gazing practice, it is reported that these attitudes go away and a positive nature gracefully replaces the old persona full of fears.” these are both stages of starvation (3,4,5). “All of the organs and all of the systems are said to respond to different colors of the rainbow, which is why it is also recommended to eat a diet rich in a variety of colors” it is said to eat a colorful diet due to the benefits of varying amino acids and proteins (ie. the building blocks of life) found in each type of food. It’s just another reason to get people to EAT healthy and has nothing to do with the actual pigmentation (6). Also for things like “For example, in liver disease, the color green is deficient” than does that mean you should eat anything but green food? The reason we see color is all other light waves are absorbed into the object and only the specific color wavelength (ex. green) is reflected back at us. This means that the object is not absorbing the wavelength that gives us green (7).

    On the side of sun: The sun does give us extreme benefits, but through Vitamin D (8). But to be technical we do not ‘get’ vitamin d from the sun, but instead the UVB light from the sun creates a chemical process within our on body. Vitamin D is the only vitamin that we can make ourselves. It is made from a pro-hormone found in adipose fat. Technically it is a hormone itself but is often referred to and acts like a vitamin (9). If you are not eating then your body is not making the necessary acids (including amino acids to make proteins), vitamins, and nutrients necessary for survival and your will not get them from the sun. You will simply starve to death. I am not going to add any links describing why looking into the sun is bad for you because a basic search and/or common sense should cover it well enough. The sun does amazing things for us. It gives us life, it gives us food, and it gives us vitamin d. It revitalizes us and we need it, but we will not survive on it. I do believe in healing energies, color representation, and many other things of the sort such as chakra’s but I cannot believe in this.

    And lastly I must add my very own opinion to think on: Humans have been around for ~200,000 years. Like everything else we have since been evolving and adapting to the world around us. There were creatures before us and after us, all evolving to be better. We have all been through famines worse than any seen in modern time, and for longer. Food was a hard thing to come by or at least a hard thing to chase down and kill. If there were a better, easier way for humans to get all the things they needed to survive other than chasing down and killing our food with little to no tools, we would have done it a long time ago and stuck with it. Organisms always tend to follow the less stressful path with the lowest expenditure of energy. As to the references of “Mayan, Egyptian, Aztec, Tibetan and Indian” cultures doing this it is clear they did not since there is archeological evidence of food within these cultures. Also these cultures were very superstitious – if any member of one of these cultures could go without food then they would all do this and it would have lead into the modern world. My favorite has to be Mayan/Aztec reference: These were cultures of the sun. They worshiped the Sun Gods and believed that if they did not sacrifice to them then the sun would not rise. These cultures (as well as the others) also kept amazing records of their activity – none of which mention this technique. All in all I believe this line and the titles itself debunk this article well enough without the science.

    Oh! Dear Oh! Dear
    Where to start, first a friend at the office shared this with us, I kindly thank her for her interest on our well being, on the other hand could I interest you (NASA apart) on the history of a brilliant Pisan Physicist, Mathematician AND Astronomer named Galileo Galilei? You know that fellow that gave us things like the measurement of tides, the discovery of our galaxy “the milky way”, and let us say it, as an avid sun-eater, the confirmation that the earth was round and that we turned around the sun, let us also say that he observed the first sun spots, just for kicks, and how did he manage that, YES, you guessed it! By staring at the sun with bare eyes AND a magnifying telescope, when? At dusk and at dawn because according to his theory it was at this point when the sun was LESS intense, and guess what… he died completely BLIND! the sun BURNT his cornea, the first part to go from the retina is the macula, then slowly as a chain reaction the cones, which give us the differences between day and night, let us call it contrast that is not definition focused, from that another part of our retina takes care, the little canes, this canes are charged on registering the different light frequency waves reflected by the sun’s radiation, they are charged with color and detail register, which travels as neural impulses through the optical nerve to the chiasma which in turn relays it, crossed for stereoscopic registry, to the cortex of the occipital lobes, where the image is further processed and interpreted. So scientifically or more physiologically speaking there is no energy transference more than an electrochemical chain reaction that help us navigate the world through the interpretation of images in stereo (depth), high definition and color that are reflected to our eyes by the different wave lengths that the sun’s radiations have on every surface that cover the earth and that receive such radiation directly.

    SO BE SAFE! Looking at the sun with bare eyes makes you BLIND, no matter at what time of the day or for how long, just remember the lights you “see” after you see the flash of a camera, think about that, darken them 10 to 15 times and make them permanent and that would be the result after around five to six weeks.

    That is why bushmen, Inuits, Berbers et alt. keep their eyes from over exposition to the sun.

    OOHHH! and by the way to anybody that is a bookworm and researcher as me, reading in the sun is BAD very BAD, shortcut to macular degeneration and permanent retinal damage!!!

    BE SAFE better than SORRY!!!!

    And for the irresponsible ignorant half brain that took the time to write this article, you have no moral mate, you are a piece of rubbish, think about the consequences of your actions, so you better erase this article before you cause true damage to younger audiences that are the ones that plowing the internet find this kind of sensationalist unproven information.

    By the way why do you write they say, they report it seems, that is as far away from any scientific rapport as you can find, where are the publications, citations, foot notes with research papers, let’s see what NASA has to say.

    AND DO US ALL A FAVOR WHY DON’T YOU CARRY IT OUT YOURSELF, AND AFTER FOUR MONTHS COME BACK AND REPORT YOUR FINDINGS, THAT IF YOU CAN STILL READ… MORON.

    This exact article, verbatim, is everywhere already. I cannot find a single reference to the actual study or any officially/scholarly publication. For all we know, this “science” is completely and entirely fictitious, and nobody in their right mind should bet their eyesight on the possibility that it’s true.

    To elaborate on why I am skeptical, beyond the absence of actual citation, let me point out that there is no such thing as the “hypothalamus tract.” The OPTIC NERVE and OPTIC CHIASM route the eyes to a structure in the brain called the suprachiasmic nucleus. The RETINAL-HYPOTHALAMUS TRACT is involved in this transfer, but the ONLY mechanism light plays on the hypothalamus is the regulation of circadian rhythm via interaction with the pituitary gland.

    That is modern neuroscience. The claims this article makes seem to be modern fantasy.

    With anything always execise your ability to facilitate your ability to utilize your ability to reason and extrapolate logicly the impact on yourself and family anything you persue. Don’t be blinded by the concept of sun eating, remenber looking directly into the sun too long could may blind you in more than one way. Maintain a good foot hold in the reality of the experience however hard it is to digest and back away if needed. Sun eating may or may not have a physical/mental advantage who am I to say. All I can say is be aware and real.

    or

    “Remember, it’s 10 seconds the first day, at sunrise or sunset, adding 10 seconds per day each day there after. After 90 days of accumulative gazing equaling 44 minutes, you cease the gazing and start the barefoot walking 45 minutes per day for 6 days.

    The article is quite vague about the actual study. He survives ‘largely’ on sunlight, which means he still requires nutrition from organic forms, such as buttermilk. Even plants require more than just sunlight. Also, I’m sorry to say that there is no evidence here (or anywhere that I have looked) that NASA has confirmed these findings – there is no primary source for this article linking it back to NASA and NASA itself has kept suspiciously quiet about it. If this study is to be taken seriously then it needs to be repeatable by independent researchers, yet the methods for the experiments are ambiguous. I am all for research in to alternative lifestyles and healing methods and I believe there are still many mysteries in the universe, but I don’t think it is unfair to require rigorous testing if the world is to accept it can now eat the sun.

    Don’t knock it ’til you try it… sun-gazing is a powerful tool for enlightenment. I didn’t experience bliss until the 20th day but every day now when the sun is out I have a chance to connect in a way that is only known by one who does. When the Pineal gland is activated the body is restored to homeostasis… this is hormonal, chemical… it feels as if the body is filled with light… it is a spiritual and real physical experience… same as feeling the ‘Holy Spirit’ while singing in church. It is one of many tools we have for enlightenment. It has been practiced for thousands of years. Sun-gazing and hyperventilation are both very powerful tools for transformation yet Allopathic doctors say not to look directly at the sun or hyperventilate. Sure, if you look at the sun for a few minutes the first time you may have an eye problem but 10 seconds on the first day, adding 10 seconds each day is the way to acclimate. I’ve done it for 45 minutes. I still have 20/20 vision after 5 years of sun-gazing. I have hyperventilated for 3 hours straight and I’m still here after much catharsis. Sun-gazing is a sacred act. The sun is on an umbilical chord from the source. It is the Sun of God.

      “People who think outside the realm of thinking..”

      Where to even begin? There is fantasizing, imagining, or dreaming, which are outside the realm of *rational* or critical thought processes, but still 100% within our ‘thinking’ mind. (heck, even as one who has taken many acid trips, I can still distinguish between hallucinations and rational thought processing).

      But “thinking outside the realm of thinking” is completely meaningless (unless I’m missing something that you could explain to me?). Because it sounds like pure tautology to me.

      Also, “There is some truth to it working if NASA funded it.” :

      Well that just shows me that you aren’t actually much of a critical thinker. You just swallowed wholesale, an unsubstantiated claim. Can you show me the NASA study that says this? Can you even show me, in this article, a link or cite to *anything* by NASA to back up this ridiculous claim?

      You can’t, BECAUSE IT ISN’T THERE, and doesn’t exist.

      Yet someone says something on on a website, so I guess it must be true?

      I have a unicorn in my garden. Can you prove to everyone this isn’t true?

    This is not true. NASA funding something is not backing it. The study has been disputed as well, as it seems additional food was sneaked in to the “test”. NASA was not involved and did not offer any confirmation. Sorry.

    Isn’t it interesting that all the naysayers are speaking from a place of ‘no’ knowledge & ‘no’ experience=the type of ‘ignorance’ that’s guaranteed to keep us forever in the dark, as is anyone that jumps into any argument/debate unarmed with empirical evidence.
    How ironic that sun is “light” and light is “information”, which we can either seek or deny.
    “Life” has been equated to the “Sun” in many cultures and life has its explorers as well as its deny-ers.
    I’ve yet to see the contributions, to any of us, from the latter.

    I want to personally thank Stasia Bliss for introducing me to the wonderful practise of sun-gazing.

    This marvellous and valid hard science has really opened my eyes!

    All it took was a couple of short minutes then any and all ‘skeptic’ naysaying became effectively invisible to me.

    Mind you that was because I was functionally blind, but that’s hardly important right now.

    I do not have any of the mentioned anymore. I am so thankful to the white-light and I would urge all the readers to start watching sun starting from 10 secs and increasing with 10 secs everyday.

    I would love to see a link to something that shows NASA’s study. That would help validate this article a great deal more. As it is, without any links or more clarification on NASA’s studies, it just seems that the author is making it up and I can understand how it might make a person want to reject the entire article as false. My two cents.

      Totally agree. A link to the NASA paper/study would help. And also about ” Following these rules make the practice safe, says sources.”. we all know that UV damages retina and this article pushes people to damage their retina.

        Lets get the facts right. There are certain concrete way of sun-gazing.
        1. You’ve to gaze the sun within the first 1 hr. when sun rises or is about to set. (scientific reason: because the UV during this time is the least [UV-1]).

        2. You’ve to increase the timing gradually, starting from 10 secs. and add 10 secs. to your previous timing each day. (scientific reason: because the pineal gland takes time to absorb the photons and direct it in the right region)

        3. It is very easy to say IT DOESN’T WORK. But only takes practice and sincere, prolonged and dedicated research and efforts to come to a conclusion.

        And don’t get me wrong that I am forcing you to do it, to do or not is only your choice. I am simply putting the facts and procedure. 🙂

          Mohit, do explain how eyes and brain have the ability to transform solar energy into chemical energy needed for the body to function. Not in layman terms but in biological terms. I’m very interested in how we evolved with such apparatus that we obviously missed when learning about eyes and brain?

    Your retinas are extremely sensitive to excessive light and oxidative stress. YES, you can do serious harm to your eyes by looking directly at the sun or other intense source of light (e.g. an acetylene torch).

    Don’t do it, it will burn your Retina and you will be blind, and its not correctable by a Doctor, its permanent.

    Yes, because your retinas will expend and try to capture all the light while you look at it. Those UV rays will then move into your Retina’s and start doing some damage. Then you go blind.
    Even 5 minutes can blind you.
    Dont do it.

    due to the rays of the sun that contain infrared and ultra violate rays and at that moment those rays are focused directly and they might hurt the retina of the eye and causes a sever damage to it and the sun light is too focused and sharp at that moment so it need a scientifically instruments to see that phenomena

      Yes, however sunrise is first and foremost an optical illusion, and the sun at sunrise and sunset looks red because light bends so much (because of the earth’s gravity) that sunlight redshifts. At this time is also when the sun has it’s lowest brightness (because of the same optical illusion) and it also has the lowest UV radiation.

      Please ,stare at the sun during sunset and sunrise, but not for very long or you will indeed be blind, and please don’t stop eating.

      Nutrition could be your best friend. Quit eating meat, maybe wheat. Detox your digestive system (fast). No amount of sun gazing is going to eliminate the toxins you have ingested all of your life. A good, long FAST will, though.

    NASA never confirmed something like that.
    Hira Ratan Manek has taken a lot of money on the fairy tale stories. His lectures about sungazing, breatharian or inedia bring him a more cash and couple of dead… but never mind at all.
