SunGazing and Earthing


Sun Gazing - Animated Sun

Why Sungaze?

The Art of Sun gazing has been practiced for thousands of years. It has been brought to light recently by authors and solar gazing pioneers Hira Ratan Manek (sun gazing) and Jashumeen (living on light) who claim to primarily “live on light.” They are using photosynthesis the same process by which plants convert sunlight into energy and nutrition. Humans can also make use of the abundant source of free energy (It’s actually very healing and safe when done right.) It’s about using the natural energy and anti-oxidants from our own, earth and sun to improve eyesight and health naturally.

I have been personally doing it for almost a year now, and I’ve noticed more energy, stronger workouts, feeling less hungry, better sleep, heightened mood, improved vision and deeper spiritual connection. I feel that they’re really on to something. I don’t do it exclusively, but I do use it as a way to gain better health, better eyesight and deeper spiritual connection (it detoxes your pineal gland, better known as the “Third Eye”).




Sun Gazing and Earthing

It’s healing benefits are many and often profound. It can increase your overall health as well as heighten your mood and help you achieve a deepened spiritual connection. From a spiritual and metaphysical perspective looking at the sun is half of an equation that seeks to unite spirit and matter (father sun and mother earth).


The Counterpart to Sun Gazing is called Earthing.  Which means that you make a bodily connection to the earth and it’s magnetic and vibrational field. I’ve learned it from watching and applying the holistic health advice from David Wolfe’s Longevity Now series of cutting edge longevity and cellular regeneration techniques. It’s changed my life completely! Using the earthing and sun gazing techniques with all the natural supplements has helped me keep my eyesight at 20/20 (I’m over 50), I am stronger and more fit than people half my age (I’m a natural bodybuilder), my hair is full and dark brown, and I rarely ever feel ill.


You can supercharge your sun gazing benefits by standing or seated on a natural surface (grass, dirt or even concrete) with your bare feet or other direct bodily contact while sun gazing. I even sleep on an earthing pad, and use one while I’m on my computer to allow the harmful EMF Waves (from electronic devices) to pass safely through me. Here is a demonstration of the energy that is being absorbed by your body if when you’re around EMF radiation as well as standard household electrical currents, and what you can do to stop that from wreaking havoc on your body and mind:


Protection from EMF Radiation

EMF Radiation is everywhere, from your cell phone, cell phone towers, wifi devices, bluetooth, microwaves, smart meters, etc. You need to protect yourself from harmful radiation as it damages your DNA and makes your cells not make new ones, the way they should. They can become slightly malformed, showing up as skin tags, skin blotches, acne, eczema and psoriasis. You should also take natural zeolite powder seasonally as a detox as it will draw radioactive particles in your body, safely out. It also removes heavy metals, viruses and stops cancers!


Earthing helps the EMF waves move right through you, so I highly recommend you try it for yourself. I’ve personally started with the basic earthing mat, and used it while I’m on the computer or phone, and then put it between my sheets when I’m sleeping so some part of my body is touching it.

I’ve since gotten another one that I use at the foot of my bed, between the sheets so I sleep protected and more soundly too. Here’s what you can do right now to protect your greatest asset – your health:



If you just can’t go barefoot, then do try using some ESD shoes (electrostatic discharge), or grounded earthing shoes.  What going barefoot or using these shoes can do for you is allow you to make a direct connection to earth or ground, removing the harmful EMF’s and providing your body with antioxidant support. Making an earthed connection removes the disease and aging free radicals from your body. They have shoes for men or women, that you can use when you can’t go barefoot. You only need to stand on grass, concrete or dirt for this to work the most effectively.  Just click on the women’s or men’s shoes for more grounded varieties:

Both are very important in achieving balance in our lives.  We will discuss the benefits of earthing on another post to follow.  So, let’s now look at some of the benefits of gazing at the sun and how to do it in a safe and effective way.

Sun Gazing Benefits:

  • Deepened Spiritual Connection
  • 3rd Eye Activation
  • Increases Intuition
  • Increased Natural Melatonin Production
  • Increased Vitamin D Production
  • Natural Mood Elevation (relieves depression)
  • Increases Physical Strength
  • Increases Metabolism
  • Provides a source of Nutrition
  • Increases Circulation
  • Improves Eye Sight and Night Vision

As you can see learning to sun gaze can be one of the most beneficial things that you can do. And the price is right too = It’s Free!  Let’s look at how to practice this sacred art to achieve it’s benefits.  You want to start out by going slowly so you can acclimate the rods and cones in your eyes for increased information (intelligence) transmission.

Solar Healing Techniques

  1. Look directly at sun when it is directly on the horizon (1-5 minutes before sunset or after sunrise)
  2. Stare into the heart of the sun on your first day for 5 seconds (no more!)
  3. Block your eyes with your hands or close your eyes for a minute afterwards
  4. Drink water afterwards to spread it’s benefit

Each day you can increase the time for sun gazing by 5 seconds.  Work your way up to about 12 minutes a day if you can. You will begin to see benefits after about a month of doing it consistently.  Experienced Sun gazers can do this for over an hour.  It is not recommended that you do sun gazing at any other time than sunrise and sunset.  This is the safe zone.


Watch this short video as David Wolfe explains how to do it safely and effectively, the myriad of benefits you get and exact and why you should do it:

Solar Yoga

They even have a form of Yoga called Solar Yoga that works in accordance with the sun’s energy.  This makes plenty of sense as it can give your more energy and flexibility as well as the spiritual connection inherent in practicing yoga.  Do include this practice into your daily life and let me know of your personal results.  Comments are most welcome!  Happy Sun gazing!

  1. Btw I sungaze at around 55 minutes a day, 5 in the morning because I have a mountain that covers most of the first hour of sunrise, but I get around 40-50 minutes daily for sungazing. I recently started adding in earthing and I’ve noticed more improvement from earthing, higher vibrational frequency for the auric body.

  2. I believe that Wolfe is incorrect, I’ve been sungazing since I was a little kid, I think he’s over cautious, I suggest the first hour of sunrise, and the last hour before sunset. Unless you see a warning for high UV index over 1, any UV index rating over 1 is unsafe to look at. Basically take your fist, hold it sideways up to horizon, if your fist covers the sun then sungaze.

    Also earthing is scientifically proven to improve healing, and yes it does ground negative energy, even through concrete , but not through rubber soles or other synthetic materials unless they are conductive.

  3. No, because sun gazing is only for a few minutes, at the first or last few minutes of the day. You can sunbathe, as long as you’ve built up to it gradually, and being 70 years young, it looks like you’ve done just that!

  4. Mtn. Woman says :

    Got the answer that it’s fine to stand on our redwood deck barefooted….but I am a healthy (take no meds) 70 yr young woman that loves to sunbath…have done it my whole life…usually just one day on the weekend for 2-3 hours…it is so relaxing for me…will this be too much sun..standing looking at the sun as you suggest? I love the idea.

  5. Yes, as long as your bare feet are touching the wood!

  6. I am sungazing from on my wood deck. Am I grounded properly?

  7. There is definately a great deal to learn about this subject.
    I like all the points you made.

  8. By balancing your hormones and getting your body back in sync with nature.

  9. You can most certainly do moon gazing. It can help you focus your eyes and get some light into the back of your retina. It can help you sleep better later that night.

  10. Hello Ana,

    It’s basically when you connect with the earth with any body part touching the earth, grass, water, tree, bush, etc. Do it for at least 15 minutes to get the antioxidant and relaxation effect. You can find out more here:

  11. hello, how you do earthing?

  12. what do you know about moon gazing ? is it as beneficial as sungazing ? is it beneficial to gaze at the moon barefooted on the ground just like sungazing?

  13. in which ways sungazing can help menopausal and premenopausal women?

  14. hello! in which ways sungazing helps menopause and premenopause?

  15. You can see a sample on this page:

    Just click on the shoe and it should bring up a site with a couple more varieties of grounded shoes.

  16. There is not too much you can do in that case. You can still go outside and face the direction of the sun and get the sun photon energy. UV rays pass through the clouds, and they are healthy for you particularly during sun gazing times. It strengthens your bones and gives you vitamin-D, a natural antioxidant and very important for bone health.

  17. You would have to poke a hole through the bottom of your shoes or run it up the side of your shoes. You can find some info on youtube by typing in earthing shoes. You can buy ESD shoes which do the same thing with it already in it here:

    Hope this helps and keep up the great work connecting earth and spirit by grounding and sungazing!!!

  18. ana villasenor says :

    how do grounded shoes look like?

  19. ana villasenor says :

    also, what u do in places or cities where the sun cannot be seen because of climate?like a long rain season or dark winters

  20. ana villasenor says :

    holistic thanx x the information, but what is the correct way to attach copper wire from inside your shoes? and where can you get grounded shoes?

  21. Ana, you can use grounded shoes or shoes with a leather or other natural material for the sole. You can also attach a copper wire from the inside of your shoes, touching your foot, and step on it and that will also ground you.

  22. ana villasenor says :

    hello, how do you ground your feet if you live in a place like canada which has a very strong winter? because to receive the sun better you have to be barefoot on the ground

  23. You’re very welcome Nitin! And best wishes on your journey, it will be a rewarding one for you.

  24. Thank you very much for the reply 🙂

  25. Nitin,
    A metal plate with a wire going into the ground is perfect! David Wolfe has tested this with an EMF (electromagnetic frequency meter) and found a metal plate or rod grounded into the earth does ground you well and uses it on his grounding or earthing products. Of course standing or sitting on the bare ground with your feet touching, or wearing cotton or natural fibers works the best. We only have to do the best that we can. My sunlight is partially blocked at sunset so I still do it and let it filter through the trees, therefore I’m still getting some photos into my pineal gland and the benefit of the extra prana filling my body.

  26. Trees are coming between me and sun. So I started sun gazing from my terrace of
    my house. I stand on a metal plate which is thoroughly grounded with a long
    wire. Once earthed its a part of the earth. So now sun’s positively charged
    energy can flow down through me to the negatively charged earth. IMO
    Or do we really have to stand on earth? HRM says standing on granite is less
    effective as the connection to the earth is low with granite. Then what is
    earth? I think quality of earth is in its negative charge. What you say?.

  27. Glad you found a spot that feels right for you. There are some days where it takes a little longer to get used to it, because of smog and air quality. You’re helping your pineal gland product natural melatonin (a natural anti-aging and healing hormone) as well as bringing light into your body. Your dreams may intensify, and you may have expanded spiritual connections available to you too.

  28. i made a new discovery, one of the reasons i was having difficulty in sungazing was that i was using the “wrong horizon” on a hill that is too close to my house and of course the sun was still too bright, then i started to use the faraway hills which are also grey that is where i found the right horizon over the faraway hills where the sun isnt excessively bright

  29. That is my favorite time too, the energy is just building and we get a beautiful positive spark to start our day. Mother Nature is so beautiful, we just need the eyes to see it, and you have it Ana!

  30. It probably would do no harm if it were less than 5 seconds, but I would rather be safest. If that’s all you can do, then do what you can, but always listen to your body. If something hurts, then ease back a little.

  31. i like sungazing, in the morning when it comes out behind the mountain at first, it look like molten glass oozing from the mountain like a volcanoe that instead of eruption, it just oozes out molten glass

  32. thanx all of u for your welcome now, i have another question. is it possible to sungaze x three seconds in any hour of the day barefoot and still receive same benefits?

  33. The best thing is to defocus your eyes a bit and not look at the sun, but through it. Drink lots of water and only do it while the sun is directly on the horizon, until it goes down, usually up to 5 minutes. Just hang in there and work your way up. Start when the sun is almost gone, and until it is right above the horizon.

  34. ive been sungazing x 2 months and i hadnt advanced yet i only can put up with 30seconds x the afternoon sun but the morning sun x 3minutes otherwise becomes too bright. what can i do?

  35. @lovely2510, I just watched it, and Love the movie!

  36. Very interesting. I’m a believer in the sun’s healing energy. I love sitting out on a nice day and soaking up some rays. From the looks of the beach, lots of other people do the same.

  37. You can but it is much better to not block any spectrum of light to get the full benefit, as the lenses will naturally block some of the beneficial UV and bend other light frequencies.

  38. can i wear contact lenses while sun gazing

  39. @Lyzbeth, I’m glad you found it useful Lyzbeth. I’ve been doing it for a few months already and I have perfect eyesight at 50+. I plan to keep practicing it myself as long as I’m getting positive results and feeling energetic and looking youthful and tapping into this energy.

  40. Alright arlhigt alright that’s exactly what I needed!

  41. @lovely2510,

    Thank you for the suggestion. I love his work, and it looks like a really great movie, I’m going to watch it for sure!

  42. Sun holds vast energy that is awaiting to be unleash by us humans. We can surely benefits the sun energy by doing sun gazing but it must be done carefully and correctly. Watch the movie what if? the movie @ where the master sun gazer Hira Ratan Manek talks about sun gazing.
