Sungazing was one very popular practice in ancient times.
Mayans, ancient Egyptians, Indians and many more ancient cultures strongly believed in the power of the Sun. They believed that it can heal diseases, put an end the need of food, and can even make telepathy a possible phenomenon.
It sounds fringy and borderline science fiction, but the more spiritually advanced actually had these abilities and they practiced them.
The process, as the name suggests, involves gazing at the sun. It is practiced at sunrise and sunset. The practice begins by looking at the sun for ten seconds and with every passing day ten seconds are added in the practice.
You must be bare feet when you are sungazing. It may sound like a myth, but the scientists too, have acknowledged the power of sungazing.
One of the most famous scientists, Nikola Tesla once talked about these super human abilities. He said,
“My idea is that the development of life must lead to forms of existence that will be possible without nourishment and which will not be shackled by consequent limitations. Why should a living being not be able to obtain all the energy it needs for the performance of its life functions from the environment, instead of through consumption of food, and transforming, by a complicated process, the energy of chemical combinations into life-sustaining energy?”
The phenomenon is named HRM phenomena after Hira Ratan Manek who popularized the technique in the modern world and got himself tested by NASA.
Let’s shortly discuss the benefits of the practice:
- It activates our pineal gland and boosts production of melatonin and serotonin which are also called feel-good hormones. The hormones are also supposed to be the reason behind the increased energy level.
- It is known to stimulate the growth of pineal gland. Generally pineal glands shrink with age, but with sungazing, the result is otherwise.
- Sungazing provides nutrition to the body which provides for our energy requirement. Hence, human can get rid of the need to eat food which promotes weight loss in a healthy way.
We must realize that our past was very rich in terms of science and techniques. They had the key to many human problems and the modern world needs to seek the knowledge which our ancestors had.
The question is, why and how did we forget about this ancient technique?
