The Art of Sun Gazing

Sun Gazing is a practice that involves gazing directly at the sun, usually during the first hour of sunrise or the last hour of sunset when the sun’s rays are least intense. Advocates of sun gazing believe that it has various health benefits, including improved vision, increased energy levels, and spiritual enlightenment.

In some spiritual traditions, it is believed that the colors of the sun at different times of the day can have an impact on the body’s energy centers or chakras. Each chakra is associated with a specific color, and the colors of the sun during sunrise and sunset are thought to correspond to these chakras. For example, the red and orange hues of the rising or setting sun might be associated with the root and sacral chakras, which are related to grounding and creativity, respectively.

Each chakra is associated with a specific color and is believed to correspond to certain spiritual and physical aspects of the body. Here is a brief overview of the chakras and their associated colors and attributes:

  1. Root Chakra (Muladhara) – Located at the base of the spine, the root chakra is associated with the color red. It is linked to feelings of safety, security, and stability. A balanced root chakra can help you feel grounded and connected to the earth.
  2. Sacral Chakra (Swadhisthana) – Located in the lower abdomen, the sacral chakra is associated with the color orange. It is related to emotions, creativity, and sexuality. A balanced sacral chakra can help you feel passionate and creative.
  3. Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura) – Located in the upper abdomen, the solar plexus chakra is associated with the color yellow. It is linked to personal power, self-esteem, and confidence. A balanced solar plexus chakra can help you feel empowered and self-assured.
  4. Heart Chakra (Anahata) – Located in the center of the chest, the heart chakra is associated with the color green. It is related to love, compassion, and forgiveness. A balanced heart chakra can help you feel loving and connected to others.
  5. Throat Chakra (Vishuddha) – Located in the throat, the throat chakra is associated with the color blue. It is linked to communication, self-expression, and truth. A balanced throat chakra can help you communicate effectively and express yourself authentically.

By focusing on these colors and their corresponding chakras during practices like meditation, yoga, or energy healing, some believe they can stimulate or balance the energy in these centers, leading to greater spiritual and physical well-being.


As you focus on the colors that you are perceiving while sun gazing, imagine that the color you are seeing engulfs your whole body; your Physical and Auric fields. Breathe it in and allow it to penetrate through your entire being. This meditation will help to ground and balance the physical, emotional and spiritual essences.

This beautiful and powerful meditation practice of visualizing the colors of the sun as they relate to the chakras and allowing them to envelop your entire being can be a way to connect deeply with the energy of the sun and its transformative qualities. This kind of meditation promotes a sense of harmony and well-being. As with any meditation practice, it’s important to approach it with mindfulness and respect for your own limits and boundaries.
