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 November is the 11th month of the year, and the number 11 (1+1=2) is associated with the Moon. The Moon reflects family, community, and nurturing what we Love. It also teaches change and flowing with the tides of yin and yang within and without. It is a sensing energy, feeling its way around and connected to the water of the emotions. This is a month where the days become shorter and there is an opportunity to go deeper within the void of darkness in order to restore harmony.
In saying this, we like to practice utilizing subtle energy to remove obstacles and keep the flow, so to speak. This month, we are practicing the Mudra for the Liver & Spleen that cools the inner fire and activates the healing of the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical bodies. The Liver is where we hold old anger and our toxic habits. The Spleen is a lifeline of support that helps us feel safe and secure. During the month of November, our emotions are activated through elections, family gatherings, and in these times - the virus. It is important that we stretch ourselves beyond any limitations and open our hearts to the infinite potential of existence, utilizing our intuition and inner "knowing" of who we really are. This hand posture helps to remove obstacles so that our good can flow. This is a time of expansion and growth. It is also a time to reset our energy for the changing of the seasons. When we are in alignment with these shifts and changes and actively create space for transmutation, then we will see the manifestation of our intentions. This mudra helps to release the shadow of the heart so the Light can shine.
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.
