What is Sun Gazing?
Sun Gazing is better known as Solar Memory and Intuition Exercise by Dr. Ali Muhammad
The general purpose of this exercise is to improve memory. We will work with the energy of the Sun and its impact on our biology to accomplish the task. This ritualistic exercise is very ancient and mathematically accurate in accomplishing better performance of the
mind and brain. A general Indigenous Cosmological and anatomical explanation will follow from our Xi-Amaru Cosmology and Moorish Texts.
Upon a morning walk after at least 2 miles or other general exercise that can work to activate the lymphatic system through general walking running jumping jacks, jumping rope or some other exercise of choice find an open space on the earth preferably near a tree. Next find the Sun. The time should be between 10am-12pm preferably.
You are going to practice solar gazing with the left eye first then the right eye. Solar gazing is the act of staring into the corona (crown edge) of the Sun then directly into the Sun at a later time.
Why the left eye first? It is the eye that will be used to improve the functions of the right temporal and occipital lobes, and hippocampus, which deal with strengthening and tapping memory and intuition.
You will also practice deep breathing while doing this exercise. Breathing should be accomplished by breathing from the diaphragm not the chest. Get the breathes to 12 breathes a minute or lower.
Using your left eye you will stare into the corona of the Sun for 15 second intervals in sets of 16 which will cover 4 minutes (240 seconds) of exercise or 1 degree of 360 degrees of earth rotation. Do this for the first 7 days then increase until you can stare into the corona of the Sun without blinking for 1 minute 60 seconds in sets of 4 totaling 240 seconds. Do the same exercise with the right eye.

Method to the Madness
Last week I sent out a newsletter titled
"Mind Unleashed" & shared a perspective of what the mind is. Here's a sample of the newsletter:
"The mind is an energy field that encompasses the entire body to create & perceive thought."
Dr. Jewel Pookrum - Read more here.
The mind is deep & contains an unlimited energy supply. Getting to know the mind can assist with you getting to know your true, authentic self.
Your true self is buried or hidden within you life's story (birth, childhood, puberty, maturity & death). Your true self is governed by instinct and you must understand how the instincts developed.
Here are some methods to clearing the mind
get a diary/journal | write an autobiography | write letters about yourself | Write to family & friends, associates | free yourself of the past to be in the present | consult your natural teachers (mother, father, yourself, society, universe).
To keep it short & sweet you must....
P.S. Our theme this year is Spirituality In Action. HYU-SIA is a practice & reminder of our connection & responsibility to self, family, community, nature & all of existence. You can start with utilizing HYU resources to study self. Check in with us & share your story of what you discovered about yourself.
I pray you all are well. Today we'll be exploring death & the legacy left behind. Sometimes this subject is sensitive & tricky so i'll be cool & share my piece. I present to you some of my loved ones...
1. Dr. Avi Melech, 58, Diabetes
2. Zuberi Badili, 58, Sudden death (Member of HYU)
3. Angela Stringfellow,45, Sudden death (Member of HYU
4. Mama B'lov, 73, Stroke
5. Joel William, 55, Quivering heart
I was very close to the list of people above & didn't know that they were not doing well. At each of their memorial I examined what they left behind & asked myself...WHAT ARE THEY TELLING ME IN DEATH THAT THEY DIDN'T IN LIFE? HOW I CAN LEARN FROM THEM?
But first i'd like to address what death is from what I've learned.
Death is a disease caused by thoughts & belief. The human body is up of cells that are constantly regenerating with electricity, light & life. Yet cells can be blocked or disturbed by the person in the body via the way the person lives. Many of the great researchers & scholars.... Dr. Jewel Pookrum, Dr. Phil Valentine, Dr. Delbert Blair, Dick Gregory.... just to name a few spoke on the topic of death as a disease. Interestingly, scientific research into single-celled organisms reveals that the nature of life, on a cellular level, does not automatically include a self-destruct mechanism for death. In other words, death is an unnatural part of life. Yet despite this, everything on earth is dying.
THE LEGACY THAT DEATH LEAVES
Death is popular & I often remind people of what we are made of. We are electromagnetic beings & connected to an energy source. The law of conservation of energy states that energy is neither created or destroyed but transformed/transferred. In Kemetic & Yoruba spiritual systems when someone dies their energy/spirit returns or transforms back to the energy source from which it came. The dead/ancestor is seen as a source of energy & power to connect & communicate with. People who have passed generate energy of lessons they've learned (or didn't) that we can connect to.
Imma take a step back & reflect on my loved ones lessons & analyze the cause of their transition from this plane of existence.
Dr. Avi Melech
Diabetes: He was longing for what might have been. He had a great need to control, had deep sorrow & no sweetness left
Stroke: giving up, resistance, rather die than change, rejection of life
Zuberi Badili (Sudden death - heart) & Joel Williams (Quivering heart)
Heart: Represents the center of love and security.
Heart Attack: Squeezing all the joy out of the heart in favor of money or position. Feeling alone and scared. “I’m not good enough. I don’t do enough. I’ll never make it.”
Heart Problems: Longstanding emotional problems. Lack of joy. Hardening of the heart. Belief in strain and stress.
Sudden death (stomach): Holds nourishment. Digests ideas. dread, fear of the new or not feeling nourished
What I learned from them though is if we have problems to seek support & talk to someone. Closed mouths don't get feed is what they say. I accept the responsibility to check in it may save a life. pay attention, be present, be open, check in, be loving, don't judge.
HONORING ANCESTORS & TAKING A MOMENT OF SILENCE
We have a responsibility to learn the lessons we are supposed to. I propose to you to take a moment of silence, reflect on your loved ones, look at what they left behind & learn from them. You all can use Shifting Patterns of Thought to examine what your loved passed from & the legacy they left behind. This is the start of HYU - Spirituality in Action
Love you & know i'll see you soon

Are you ready to clean out the old energy in you home?
Healing the home requires knowing what's needed to heal yourself. Do you KNOW the status of your body & mind? If you don't, take a time out to complete a self health assessment & mental cause of health evaluation below.
The assessment can be used to make a list of the things you are holding on to & the things you need to let go. There are many categories & lists on the assessment that may reflect some of the mental behaviors you exhibit. For example, If you are experiencing headaches, the mental cause of headaches is fear, invalidation of the self & self criticism. You must take a deep breath, relax & release anything in your mind & home that invalidates you.
So make your list, check it twice & know what you need to cleanse out & let go. Letting go is the hard part. This is that time of year for spring cleaning. Cleansing out the body & home of things you no longer need opens the way for new opportunity & possibility. But before adding new things clear out old energy.
Just like the body, your home is holding to your old energy, habits & behaviors. There are several ways to clear the home of old energy but per this article i'll reflect on one: Sage & affirmations. Before starting the process of cleaning & clearing the home with sage & affirmations ,communicate with all living being in the home i.e children, spouse, pets, plants, insects, etc. Sage cleans out old, negative energy & the affirmations brings in the new energy.
Now, add the new things that you need. Whatever you are brining in must contribute to the temporary, preventative & permanent health of you. As I already shared about the "I," you are the infinite I of all that exists & if you are healed &/or healing everything else benefits from the work you are doing. Hope to see you at HYU upcoming events & activities of Healing the home & relationships this month.

Do good by you.
You are the infinite I of all that exist.
In the previous article, "What is the I?", I left you with some ideas & suggestions on work you can do to start studying yourself. The suggestions were to start with "the basics" by finding out your physical, mental, emotional & spiritual status. All of the above can give you the foundation to where you are & how you got there.
In addition, last month all were invited to a self care gathering that focused on Zone 0 (Self). We shared a vegan meal & information on self healing. During the self care session all were reminded of their power and authority over their own health. We utilized a self health assessment, diagnosis & treatment worksheet. Below are the resources we provided during the session.
The attached documents focus on assessing your current ailments, your current thought pattern that caused those ailments and the new thought pattern you must create & accept to overcome the ailment. Each attached worksheet is for you to utilize & keep. If the thought pattern on the sheet in connection with the ailment resonates with you, move forward & create your own affirmations for shifting your thought patterns. All affirmations must be written using I, in present tense & positive. For example, I love myself & I am free to be me.
Join us for our upcoming Healing the Home & Intimate Relations events this month.
Check out our calendar here. See you soon.
