Mudra of the Month: Adi Mudra for Mental and Emotional Strength...

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.

The month of September is the 9th month of the year and is connected to the planetary influences of Mars. Mars gives us the strength and power we need to manifest our dreams. It is the planet of peace when the fire is balanced, and it is connected to deeper wisdom, the breath, and our will power. This month, we are working with Adi Mudra. "Adi" means "first". This is because it is a primal instinct to place the thumb inside the palm. Babies often do this during their early years. This hand posture is wonderful to do with breath work and asana in order to soothe the nervous system. Adi Mudra is great for stress, and supportive when suffering from depression or other forms of mental health deficiencies. There have also been studies showing that this mudra helps the body balance blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

The thumb is connected to the planet Mars, and representative of our will power, the brain, and the lungs. The thumb is what distinguishes us from other animals, and is said to prove our intelligence or ego. When we put the thumb inside of our fist, we are creating a womb for our primal seed of life to recharge. The Mars finger is stimulated inside of the fist in order to direct the flow of energy to the rest of the body. The palm holds the reflex points to every organ system of the body, and the thumb enters this primal territory in order to provide life force and charge the body with Light.

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. Bring your thumb inside of the palm on both hands, squeezing the thumbs inside of each fist gently.

4. Bring the mudra to rest on the knees with the thumb side facing upward.

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.
