Transformation Tuesday: Sun Gazing: Harness the power of the sun

"Can you get energy from the sun to fuel your body?"

Sun gazing is the act of looking directly at the sun. It is sometimes done as a religious or spiritual practice. It invloves staring at the sunrise or sunset; these two times are rhe best because the uv rays are the least. The human eye is very sensitive, and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can lead to retinopathy. The practice of sun gazing has some truly amazing benefits, not only for your physical health, but also for your mental wellbeing and spiritual development. 

Some of the benefits include:

  • Relief of stress and tension
  • Increased energy
  • Boosts production of the feel good hormones serotonin and melatonin
  • Improved eyesight
  • Reduces hunger pains –body is completely nourished by the sun (Some people claim to have been able to take part in this practice and not eat anything during the entire process which is usually about 9 or 10 months)
  • Stimulation of the pineal gland
  • Increased size of pineal gland
  • Releasing of internal blockages
  • Increased human potential

Hira Ratan Manek is the man who brought sun gazing to western society. He founded the Solar Healing Centers. He lives off the energy that the sun produces and water, and thats it. While under supervision, he did 3 long fasts and claims that sun gazing brings you better physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It heals the mind, body and spirit. A scientist named Vinny Pinto conducted a survey on 56 participants and documented their experience. He called it the "First sungazing list group sungazers survey." His findings were:

  • Health improvements especially among women
  • People who practiced sun gazing for more than five years and who gazed mid-day (instead of the insisted hour after sunrise and hour before sunset) were more likely to report adverse effects
  • 35 out of the 51 participants reported to have “increased or greatly increased energy” while only 1 participant reported reduced energy
  • The number of people who reported a “decreased need for solid food” was approximately equal to the number of people who reported “no significant change in the need for food.” Only 1 person in the study reported an increased need for food.
  • People who had sun gazed for at least a year for at least 4 times per week were far more likely to report a decreased need for solid food.
  • The most common physical/mental/spiritual experiences reported from sun gazing were bliss, joy, peace and calmness.
  • No one from the study reported a decrease in physical health, everyone reported that his or her health was the same or had improved.

How to:

  • Begin by spending a maximum of 10 seconds on the first day by looking directly at the sun during the safe hours.
  • It is an important part of the practice that you stand barefoot on bare earth. Apparently this helps to keep you grounded and enhances the benefits of sun gazing.
  • As you are staring at the sun visualize the energy from the sun coming into your body and filling your body and cells with rejuvenating light.
  • On the second day aim for 20 seconds, each day after that continue adding 10 seconds to the previous day. So at 10 days you will be looking at the sun for 100 seconds, or 1 minute and 40 seconds.
  • Continue this daily until you have reached 44 minutes. This should take between 9-10 months depending on the weather. According to HRM this is all you need to gain the benefits described above from sun gazing.
  • After this you will need to walk for 45 minutes each day for the 6 days following the completion of the 9-10 months of sun gazing.
  • From here on out, just make a conscious effort to continue to walk barefoot on the earth, preferably in the sun whenever you feel like it or get the time.

Try it for yourself.

See-Nic Sunday: How the world binds to your will

Today’s Message: “We are united, set your intentions for the day and see it happen”

StoryTime: About 4 weeks ago I made a choice. I quit my job, took what I could and headed to Los Angeles, CA. I had a mission in Texas that was done. I came back home to new life, a beautiful new nephew. My awesome family and a great city. I had never been in LA as an adult but I was eager to see how it changed. I had hoped in the car, drove to Texas right after graduation and had been there ever since. 10 years to the day, exactly… Now I am back, in a fresh new city with a brand new start. I feel like I had gained worldly wisdom and never left. Like the prodigal’s son who went out into the world and had arrived home, renewed and full of knowledge. I felt as if I went on a shamanistic journey through the wilderness and came back to tell the village all that I had learned and experienced. Coming home made me realize how important home, family, grounding, closeness and inter-connectivity was. It all starts at home, with your family. Once you are one with your family, everyone else seems easy. We are all brought to this earth with a people who are here to guide and direct you before you go out into the world. They are called your “Soul Tribe”. Once you have healed your past life, you can move on to another. I realized that I was not healed until I found peace within my family. They are me, I am them, we are one and we all have something to love about ourselves that our family gave us. No one is perfect. We all go through things to teach the next. As my mom says “Each one, Teach one”. I have found so much love for myself and my journey from this process of coming home. I see that this is just the first steps, there is so much more to learn. I’m eager to figure it out. After all that I’ve been through, I can handle anything.

The world is an amazing place, filled with many sites and things. It’s a place that can be wonderfully beautiful cruel place, It all depends on how you react to it. One day you wake up to a million dollars and the next day you can be dirt poor with no place to go. There is a lesson in every experience, person or thing; you just have to open your eyes to see it.

Soul-try Saturday: Relationships are Lessons

Today’s message: “Fill your cup with love and peace, if you want to give love and peace.”

“Your purpose on earth can be known and decided by you and you alone.”

Story Time: When I got older I moved around a lot. Not from State to State but through people (Technically I did move once from California to Houston, then to Austin, then back to California). I always blamed others. I saw that I did do somethings that created a distance but mainly it was me. I was running from my lessons. Which meant I was running from my blessings. I repeated relationship after relationship. Whether it be a friendship or a sexual relationship. I took the time to look back and see the lessons that I was being taught. It was the same lesson. Love. To find love for others, which allowed me to love myself.

We meet the person we are at the time. If we run, we are running from ourselves. If we reject another, we reject ourself. If we hate another, we hate ourselves. I had build these walls that made me build walls within myself. I had a lot of dis-ease within myself from grief, regret, blame, hurt and pain. Once I forgave, loved, appreciated, and accepted myself I could do it for others. Once I saw that we are all each other, just in a different vessel I was able to heal. We are all on a constant journey to live, love and grow. We may or may not know someone forever. It could be a moment or a lifetime. It depends on if you are meant to grow with this person or grow apart to learn another lesson with another. For whatever reason we are all set up to learn what we need to learn before we leave this earth. Just know that it is meant to be, everything happens for a reason. Find peace in knowing that you are not alone, and every person you meet is a blessing. Whether it be upfront or in disguise. See meeting and leaving another person as a meeting of yourself and a letting go that allows you to grow. You are constantly changing like the seasons. Just as the trees say good bye to their leaves and limbs that break from the weight, say good bye to the friends and lovers you lose for there are other leaves to be grown. There are other roots to be planted and other branches to be grown. Be thankful for all you’ve received and watch for better come. Whatever is given is replaced.

Talk-About-It Thursday: What the bleep do we know? (Movie)

Today’s Message: “You don’t know what you don’t know”

StoryTime: I was introduced to this movie by divine intervention. I was listening to Kevin Trudeau’s audio “your wish is your command” and he mentioned that this is a great movie to see. That it would open your eyes to the possibilities. I always listen to people who I trust and since I’ve started listening to Kevin, my life has changed incredibly for the better. So I watch this movie and it blows my mind.

The movie is about a photographer who has a life changing experience and along the way finds out that she is capable of more things than she knows. We are all controlled by our thoughts, that mixed with physics and the way that we process our current realities determines our daily outcomes. We all have a choice of how things will go. Once you set a plan, believe and stick to it, the universe will line things up for you. It’s a must see, with a great storyline and expert opinions. Science and nature are finally starting to co-exist. I’m looking forward to seeing what else we figure out as the years go by.

Talk-About-It Thursday: Waking Life

Today’s message: “Find light in all things.”

Story Time: There was a time when I felt that my life was a dream and all I needed to do was wake up. What if I woke up and all things were different? Maybe this life looked like it does now or maybe it is in a cartoon form or a pastel form? I have had dreams that I thought I was awake but realized later that I was dreaming. I use to want to run to this dream-like reality especially when things were too hard to handle in this world. Then one day I realized that we have control over this reality just as much as we do our dream reality. We create the lives we want to live. We have a choice in all things we do. We can wake up and choice to have a good day or a bad day. From that day on, I choose to get up everyday feeling like “today is going to be a good day.”

There are many times that we all think that our reality is tested. Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves just to make sure that we aren’t dreaming. “Waking Life” is a movie that tests your reality. It makes you think about “What if this world isn’t as it seems?” “What if  this world is not real?” It blew my mind at first. It has a lot of quotes that send your mind into a vortex of “what if?” questions. It pushes you to the limit of your sanity then takes you back down to earth but still leaves you wondering. It was the “Inception” before there was a “Inception”. It take you down to the basement level of your mind. Its asks you “What is life?” Its a movie that takes you on a psychedelic trip without the drugs. I sat in aw as the main character goes through multiple scenes wondering if he is sleep or not and encountering multiple individuals who teach him something new. Further taking you and him down the rabbit hole of life. Not to mention, the various, vibrant visual you experience throughout his journey. This movie is definitely for someone who wants to open their mind. Once you go down, its hard to get back up without a mental change. This stimulates all of your senses (Especially the 6th sense). I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to expand. I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the movie…pEpNpcF

Tap in. Enjoy.

Transformation Tuesday: Touch The Sky

Today’s messages: “You become fearful of life but once you realize your potential and limitless power you become fearless.”

“Whatever you give comes back to you ten-fold so give and see all the many opportunities come your way.”

“Test me and I will pass overtime because I know love is the answer to all life’s questions.”

Story Time: A woman in the store gave me money to complete my grocery purchase. It was generous of her to give when she did not know me. It warmed my heart to see that there is still kindness and generosity in the world. A month prior I left my card in my car. When I walked outside a man stopped me to use my phone. People kept passing him by because he didn’t look “normal”. Seeing that we are all stars living out our lives the best way that we can, I stopped because there have been times when I was in need and I would want someone to show me the same generosity. As I was helping him, a man tapped me on my shoulder and told me that he paid for my groceries. I was speechless. Just as he presented himself, he was gone in flash. Quite angelic. Then just yesterday, an older gentleman, in his late 50’s offered to buy my groceries.

See people in a new light. See everyone as a close family, just reintroducing ourselves on a daily basis. Go higher and higher. Gravitate closer and closer to the people who care and are more like you. The universe has given me all the things plus more and so shall it with you. Be appreciative and excited about all the things you receive and you will receive more. Also be authentic. You will feel free and be free to be great. Free to express yourself creatively. You will get people who come to you and congratulate you for your bravery to be yourself. In a world of people who are trying to be the same, the best gift is to be unique. Be wonderfully open, vulnerable. It will help you lose the wrong people and gain the right ones. It feels amazing to take so many leaps and be caught every time. Be thankful. Set intentions. Take risks and follow your instincts.

What

is

your

heart

and

gut

telling

you?

When your intentions are pure, all will unfold accordingly. When they are pure you receive love. Send out the same vibes you want to receive back. Appreciate every little thing, even the bad. The bad will lead you to a lesson that brings you good. Feel free. Find true joy. Like the wild, the sun, the moon, the earth, the rain, music, books, knowledge, love, communication, giving, water… The things truly worth fighting, caring, fusing, getting hype about. Learn to be fearless. Step out of your comfort zone. Be outside, talk to that stranger, take that new job. Being in society can make you lazy, then dependent, then fearful. Like an animal in captivity, once you’ve been controlled for so long, you forget what freedom feels like. You feel like freedom is chaos, bewilderment but that is just the fear of the unknown.

Change

only

happens

when

you

do

something

different.

Stay instinctual. Always present so you can use your senses as guides Always ready to receive a message or call that will bring you closer to your goal. As a star, we all receive a message from the universe. Time to wake up and see the world for what it is. Money is a form of control. Lust is a form of control. Drugs are a form of control. Jim Carry quotes “Much of the problem of the modern dilemma is that direct experience has been disconnected and in its place all kinds of belief systems have been erected. Reclaim experience and trust yourself. Your perceptions are primary. Your feelings are correct. Everything must constellate out and make sense and purse with what you know. If you don’t start from that assumption then you are off center to begin with. Dissolve the cultural programming that has potentially made you a mark and restore your authenticity.” Release it all into the universe and feel weightless, like a feather. Free to float on the clouds of infinite possibilities. Nothing can stop you, let the wind take you. Be free to travel and enjoy the sky.

How to love without ego

Ego can cause people to hold their pride too high, miss opportunities and push away great, lasting relationships. Ego is something we are all born with. Something that takes time to find and control. It took me awhile and now I’m here to tell you that it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. When you let go of ego your world is turned around from negatives to positives. Thinking of things that are greater than yourself is amazing. Realizing that we are all united and interconnected through mind, body and spirit is amazing. To see yourself in everyone that crosses your path. To find, love, empathy, and compassion gives you so much inner peace. I vibrate so high since I’ve let go of ego and turned to love. The world seems so beautiful, filled with wonder, excitement and new beginnings. I look forward to what will happen next, who will I meet next?


Who

Will

I

Meet

Next?


I see people as people living their lives the best way they can with the resources that are available to them. Regardless of your past, present or future expectations, everyone is beautiful. I’ve learned to meet people a the level they are at, not forcing my point of view, not pushing anything on them. Just letting others be whoever they choice to be. Letting others make their own decisions depending on their own inner guidance. We all receive messages and have our own ideas. Not every is meant to be on the same path or live out their worldly experience like others. We are the universe living a life reintroducing ourselves to itself, who am I to judge?


Who

Am

I

To

Judge?


Concurring ego involves going deep within yourself, learning yourself and accepting all things about you. The good, the bad and the ugly. Finding light within the darkness. Concurring your yin and yang and finding balance within your heart. Self love projects love. What you are, you attract.


What

You

Are,

You

Attract


Once you find love for yourself, you can find love for others. Go out and love today, it’s the first step to healing.
