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.
July is the 7th month of the year, so we like to work with our intuition this month in order to tap into the deep waters of Neptune. Neptune helps us to connect with the "hand of God", which are the inner workings of the mind and heart and our connection to the Divine Mind.
This mudra is especially powerful because it combines a few different techniques. By bringing the sides of the hands together, we are bringing the Moon sides of the hands to activate a receptive posture for blessings to pour into. Gyan Mudra, the thumb and index fingers together, helps the mind and spirit to unite as One. In order for us to get out of our own way on this journey of the soul, we have to establish humility and self-Love. Bringing the Gyan Mudras together touching amplifies spiritual energy, while stimulating the higher centers of the brain at the same time. The thumb represents the planetary influence of Mars, and the index finger to Jupiter. Mars and Jupiter bring the expansion and magnetism to attract the gifts of the higher self into physical manifestation. Visualize what you are creating, and sit and breathe (or chant) with this mudra, while seeing your dreams pour into your hands effortlessly.
How long do I hold a Mudra for? One moment to several minutes is standard timing for holding a Mudra. Mudras work based on one's level of consciousness. The higher the consciousness, the less one needs. All mudras are suggested to be held for 1-3 minutes and up to 11-120 minutes with a mantra meditation. Listen to your intuition and feel your mind, heart, and body while you are practicing Mudras. You will learn for yourself what is best for you. Smile, relax, and receive healing from your own hands.
