What are Mudras?
Mudras are Yoga positions for the hands and fingers. We experience our world, our connection with it, and those around us through our hands - they are our ‘antennae’. Think of the many tasks we perform with them in the course of a day! Our hands are also part of our Heart Chakra so what we do with them affects our heart centre. In some traditions the fingers relate to individual chakras and to various points on the body corresponding to reflexology points, the Five Elements of Chinese Medicine and the Yoga Nadis. Just by bending, and touching our fingers together we can literally ‘talk’ to our brain and our body.
Mudras work on all levels, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Why practice Mudras?
If you are new to Meditation, Mudras are a great way to begin as they are very useful for focusing/quietening the mind and bringing both mind & body into stillness. Mudras can be used to relieve stress, tension, anxiety, depression and insomnia. There are Mudras for the digestive system, the liver and gall bladder, the Heart and kidneys to name but a few! They are particularly helpful for strong emotional reactions, unhelpful habits/behaviour and addiction.
Your Heart and Your Health are quite literally in Your Hands.
When/How Often Should I practice?
Any time you feel to, is fine, but I find first thing in the morning or last thing at night particularly useful. The Mudras can be held from 5 to 15 minutes. A seated comfortable cross legged position is great but if you are not physically fit/supple sitting on a chair, a bolster or against a wall is equally useful. Daily practice will bring the most effective results. For some of us this may not be realistic so whenever you feel to or can make time for.
