What role does the Sun and sunspots play on consciousness and how does this relate to our ever day lives?
Edgar Cayce wrote about the correlation between sunspots and consciousness:
Cayce saw sun spots, as well as earth changes as a reflection of our own state of consciousness, a result of our own actions, the boomerang of divine law. His readings offer simple metaphors to describe that eternal truth.
When asked about how sunspots affect the inhabitants of the earth, he said that the question should be reversed. Sunspots, he claimed, are reflection of the “turmoils and strifes” that we our selves have created, and our own mind is “the builder.” He asked us to think about what we have built:
As what does thy soul appear? A spot, a blot up the sun? Or as that which giveth light unto those who sit in darkness, to those who cry aloud for hope?13
Cayce said that the responsibility for earth changes lies squarely on our shoulders, and how we conduct our relationships with others has everything to do with the changing face of the earth:
Tendencies in the hearts and souls of men are such that these [earth changes] may be brought about….
As ye do it unto thy fellow man, ye do it unto thy God, to thyself.14
A bit like Hamlet, who lamented that “the time is out of joint,” Cayce talked about earth changes as “readjustments”—adjustments that have to be made because something is out of alignment. Yet Cayce believed that just as we create chaotic conditions by our own out of alignment behavior, so we can create positive transformation by our loving attitudes and actions.
“In the final sequence of his life,” writes author Jess Stearn in his book Edgar Cayce on the Millenium,
“the great prophet saw the relationship of man to his Creator as more tangible and consequential than any El Nino or eruption of the earth.”15
Cayce said that we are not ruled by the world, our environment or even
“planetary influences,” but by our own free will. When we disregard divine law, we ring “chaos and destructive forces” into our life; when we are in harmony with the divine, we create order out of chaos.”16″

While the scientific community has discovered a 13 year cycle for sunspots, wayshowers from the metaphysical community has been commenting on these events since the 1920’s:
“Observe the indications of seismographic curves. The points are disposed not along the equator, nor along a meridian, but form their own curves. Sometimes an increased activity of quakes and shiftings coincides with the intensity of so-called sun-spots resulting from a tension of the solar system. One need not be a prophet to understand that brain action in these periods will flow in a specific way.”
New Era Community (1926) #161.
“The full moon usually is favorable for telepathy. But there are other factors that affect it too. Most important, it is influenced by certain phases of the sunspots. You may yourself have noticed that telepathic manifestations grow stronger with the increased chemical activity of the lunar and planetary rays, but sunspots also affect many other aspects of existence. Cold, which can reach disastrous extremes, the heat of volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes follow changes in the solar aura. One must keep this in mind, because the cold may increase and the earthquakes become more powerful. Thus, a transitory solar manifestation can be terminal on Earth.”
Agni Yoga (1929) #504.
“The function of the rays is contained in the blending of all energies with the Fire of Space. If one could resolve the Solar Ray into its electrons, it may be found to contain all elements that are in the cosmic, manifested, ray. The creativeness of the cosmic ray lies in the attraction and dissolution of energies. If the molecular particles could be extracted from the ray, their attraction could be utilized. Hence, one must adjust the forces of receptivity. Only striving from both ends will afford the necessary tension. Explosion occurs because of non-coordination of energies. All chaotic manifestations are only evidence of non-coordination. It may be said then that the tensive power of the cosmic ray is attracted toward Earth but meets with no responding vibration. Yet upon this foundation are all creative manifestations built. The affirmation of the cosmic ray intensifies all activity.”

The following is from an article, “Is the Sun Conscious?”:
For me, one of the most astonishing thoughts was rather casually advanced by David Lorimer, director of the Scientific and Medical Network. He told us that in August, 1997 the followers of the Bulgarian teacher Peter Dhunov, would be gathering in Bulgaria to commune with the spirit of their deceased master and other illuminated beings who would be meeting in the Sun at the same time!
Satish Kumar told us of the traditional Indian belief that the departed spirits of enlightened human beings pass first into the light of the Sun and then to dimensions or realms beyond; the Sun was a kind of gateway through which human consciousness could move after bodily death.
Santos Bonacci covers in great detail the relationship between the sun and consciousness:
Astrotheology is the holy science that combines astrology, astronomy and theology. This holy science shows that in fact all myths, all story’s, the bible and all other holy scriptures, and even nursery rhymes are based on the movement and interaction of the seven lights we see in the sky. These seven lights we know as the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. They are the lights our eyes can see wandering in front of the fixed background of the stars. These are the main characters that create patterns in the sky, which have an effect on our lives here on Earth or Terra. “As above, so below”.
The brightest of these seven lights is the Sun also know as “Helios” in Greece and as “Helios Atum” in ancient Egypt. “Atum” sounds like “atom” and it is in fact the same because the sun is an atom. It has an electric light core and electron bodies floating around it.
Plato said that the Sun is “the cause of our knowledge, without it we cannot see”. So the Sun is the teacher of the sense of the sight and the ruler of our eyes. The Sun is the “lucent” one, or “Lucifer”.
In ancient Egyptian mythology, the name of the “Sun” god was “Ra”, the one who “ra”diates. In churches, you will often see the letters “IHS” on books, altars, baptismal fonts etc. alwayspictured with a symbol of the sun around it. IHS stands for the Greek letters “iota”, “eta” and“sigma”. Writing in our alphabet, “IHS” equals “JHS” or “JHC”. The pronunciation of thisword is “JES”, which is a shorthand for “Jesus”. Jesus and the sun are the same. Jesus is thesun! Jesus Christ is God’s sun. The sun is the risen savior. So this “IHS” is a Christogram, amonogram which is an abbreviation of the name of “Jesus”. The early Christians were called:“Helionostics” which means “Those who have knowledge of the Sun”.
In Hebrew “yes”, or “jes” means fire or the sun! The name of the sun in Hebrew is Michael, or Emanuel. In India, it is: Krishna, Brahma, Shiva or Jes-Christna. In Egypt, it is: Ra, Horus, Seth, Atum, Aman. In the “Nag Hammadi” teachings is written that: “Christ is the true life and the sun of life”.
St Patrick (390 AD): “The true Christ is the sun “. Predulian (363 AD): “The sun is the center of the solar system”.
Eraneus: “The Gnostics really declared that all the supernatural transactions in the gospels were counterparts of what took place in the sky and heavens”.
Leonardo Davinci: “I could wish that I had such power of language as should avail me to assure those who would set the worship of man above that of the sun. Those who wish to worship man (an historical Christ) make a huge error!”
In the bible, Jesus says: “I’m the light of the world, every eye will see me”.
Bible – Simon: “For the Lord God is a sun and a shield”.
Bible – Psalm 48: 11: “The Lord is a shield and a sun”.
Bible – John 4: 8: “God is love”.
Bible – John 1: 5: “God is light: .
Bible – Hebrews 12: 12: “For our God is a consuming fire”.
Many people refuse to acknowledge the importance of the sun in esoteric terms. The Sun is not only the bringer of life, but is intimately connected to our consciousness as our bodies are a reflection of the cosmos. During sunspot activity, take notice of your emotions, health and mental well-being as these are all being affected on a deeper level. The more you become in tune with these occurrences, the more you will begin to see and understand the relationships between the sun, the cosmos and yourself.
