The month of August is the 8th month of the year, and connected to the planetary influences of Saturn. Saturn reminds us to rest in our strengths and take time to get centered in order to show up as our best self in life. It is the great teacher of higher knowledge and wisdom. In order to slow down the mind enough to get centered and connected to the Light within, this hand posture can be used with breath work and/or mantra.
Gyan Mudra is known historically to be one of the most powerful mudras for the brain, the mind, and the spirit-ego relationship. Prayer pose is a centering, calming, and harmonizing hand posture for the mind and heart. The solar plexus is the highly innervated nerve and chakra center that helps to activate the will power for ones highest and greatest good. With the right hand at the heart in a half prayer pose, we are activating the mind in harmony and balance with the heart. The left hand on the solar plexus brings the receiving side of the body in alignment with the will power. Projecting calm while receiving inner alignment with harmony and balance manifests a resilient, patient, centered, and calm mind-heart embodiment. Utilize this mudra all month long for inner strength and wisdom, and allow the Universe to bless you with a calm and centered mind and heart.
