Sun meditation - the journey to the light

Sun meditation - the journey to the light

The sun is the central force for everything life-giving on our planet. Its light has a strong healing power and supports in the light body process when we turn to it with mindful awareness.

The light of the setting sun has just as much of a clearing and purifying effect on our Chakra system as that of the rising sun. The evening sunlight corresponds with the root chakra, the sacral chakra, the solar plexus and the heart chakra. In comparison, the morning light acts on the heart chakra, the throat chakra, the forehead chakra and on the crown chakra. The heart chakra is stimulated by both the morning light and the evening light.

The more we give our attention and our awareness to the sun, the more we also nourish our own solar consciousness, which mostly still rests in the unconscious. But with regular sun rituals, we nourish and awaken the consciousness - to live "awake" in the light. In this meditation you can expand your consciousness with the help of the sun and the light and become one with the light.

Preparation

You are welcome to sit outside for this meditation and watch a beautiful sunrise or sunset. But any other time of day is also ideal for sun meditation. If the sun is not shining, you can also do the meditation in a closed room. To do this, visualise the mood of the sun with all its colours with your eyes closed. Become aware of the qualities that awaken in you and that you associate with the sun or your inner image. Of course, the warmth and intensity of the sun depends on the seasons, but especially in the sunless winter months this meditation gives us a lot of light and strength.

Meditation instruction

Sit on a yoga cushion and make yourself comfortable. Keeping your spine erect and straight, you can form your hands into a mudra. For example, the Gyan Mudra, where we gently bring the thumb and index finger together. Now breathe deeply in and out a few times.

Consciously absorb the prana (life energy) charged by the sunlight with each inhalation and exhalation. You see inwardly, for example at sunrise, how the rays become stronger and stronger, you feel the warmth of the sun's rays on your skin.

Embark now on your journey to the light. Be it to your image of the sun or to another light that shines beyond the sun. You are on your way there and on the way you will experience various things, feelings, thoughts and perceptions. Just perceive everything, look at it without judging, without evaluating, without wanting to change anything. Let the beautiful and the less beautiful simply be there on your path, on the wayside. Let the sunlight shine on it, perceive it and go on towards this radiant light. With an open heart, with attentive awareness, perceive everything you encounter on your journey to the light.

And as you walk towards the light, to the left and to the right of the path, seeing beautiful or not so beautiful things that arise in the mind, the light comes closer, you come closer to the light. Focus your attention even more on the light. It is a radiant, unearthly light that magically attracts you. The closer you get, the more radiant it becomes, the bigger it becomes.

The sun meditation leads you to your own light.

Look at how your light looks, whether it shines white or rather golden or perhaps a little bluish. Whatever it may seem, look at your light. It becomes more radiant, bigger. Soon you will see nothing else but this light that now fills everything. You come even closer. The whole room is bathed in this radiant light and the radiance also fills you completely. The light takes you in.

You go on. You go into the light. The light takes you in, penetrates you completely. You are absorbed in the light. You are the light. You are the highest light and radiate in all directions. You are this brightness, this radiance. You are absorbed in it and there is nothing else. Feel also the joy, this great opening, the letting go, the dissolving of the relative in this absolute, pure light.

Stay in this state for a while and reflect for yourself. When you are ready to release from the meditation, take 3 more deep breaths in and out. With the last exhalation, slowly open your eyes and come back to the here and now.

You are welcome to chant a mantra to conclude the meditation. We recommend the following sun mantra, which reinforces the meditation:

Om hrim sum suryaya namaha
