Mudra means "To Please", and is a way to invoke the unseen forces for health and happiness. You can literally manifest your destiny with the palm of your hands. Mudras are a type of sign language to the angelic realm. Every day, hire the angels of Light and fire the angels of darkness with Mudra Therapy.
It is the first month of the year, and January aligns with the Sun (1) and the healing that comes at the beginning of a new year. It is a time to start fresh and hold visions for the great dreams we wish to manifest. The focus is more on the self and how health, finances, relationships, and happiness can shift and grow with new habits and life patterns implemented. It is important for the heart and the head to stay focused on Hope and keeping the dream alive. We have to believe in ourselves and our visions, and let the doubt and worry fall away. This month, we practice a hand posture that aligns the head and heart with the inner knowing and desire to create.
The phalanges, or parts of each finger, represent the three planes of existence within us. The further away from the body, the higher the plane of reality. The distal phalange, or tip of the finger, is representative of the Divine world, or world of thought. The intermediate phalange, or the middle of the finger, is representative of the Astral world, or world of emotion. The proximal phalange, or base of the finger, is representative of the Physical world, or world of action. In this mudra, we bend at the intermediate phalanges and allow the Astral and Divine worlds of each finger (planetary energy) to touch and connect. The fingers point inward for inner healing, reflection, and projection. The thumbs, our willpower, work like antennas to call in higher forces for guidance and direction through intuitive knowing. Combined, this hand posture promotes the release of stress, worry, and doubt in order to access inner guidance and direction toward one's inner dreams. As masters of our destiny, we can utilize this hand posture to meditate on what our greatest dreams look like manifested in our lives. Holding this vision along with breath and sound, we can create fertile soil to grow our greatest and boldest life dreams.
How To Get Into The Mudra:
1. Straighten the spine in a comfortable posture sitting, standing, or laying down.
2. Rub your hands together vigorously.
3. Connect the intermediate and distal phalanges by bending the fingers and touching them flat together, forming a "V" shape with the fingers pointing toward the heart.
4. Straighten and extend the thumbs straight up like two antennas.
5. Relax your shoulders down and away from your ears.
6. Smile, breathe, and hold the mudra here for 3 - 11 minutes. Chanting the healing mantra "RaMaDaSaSaSaySoHung" or breathing a 3-Point Breath (See Below) is wonderful to do while holding any mudra.
3-Point Breath (Optional):
Inhale for a count of 20, Hold the breath for a count of 20, Exhale for a count of 20. Repeat this breath for 3 - 11 minutes to calm the mind and bring balance to the brain.
