Mudras: Ganesha-mudra

Mudras are used to harmonize and to enter a deeper level in your meditation. Each one has a specific quality that helps the practitioner. Beginning today and onwards, every Wednesday we will be offering one. This mudra is used mostly to relieve physical disorders.

Mudra

Place before the chest left hand, with your palm facing out. Fold the fingers. The right hand, with the back out take the left. Place both hands close to your chest, at the same height as the heart.

With respiration, pull the hands in opposite directions, without releasing them. Tighten the muscles of the arms and the chest area. With inspiration, relaxing all the tension. Repeat 6 times and then place with affection, both hands in the same position on the sternum perceiving them in a conscious way.

Changes the position of the hands: the Palm of the right hand will look out. Repeat 6 times and then rest awhile.

It is enough that is performed once a day.

Variant: do the same thing but with forearms on diagonal, not horizontal position, so that an elbow point obliquely downward and the other up.
