Mudras: Ushas-mudra

Mudras influence the mood-mental realm, as well as harmonize your meditation. Each has a specific quality that favors the practitioner. As we discussed last week, on Wednesdays we will dedicate a space to the mudras. Let's go with the second installment.

Cross your fingers so that your right thumb is on your left. Slightly press your left thumb with your right. It is advisable to do it every day between 5 and 15 minutes, until it achieves the desired effect.

Note: women should place their right thumb between their left thumb and forefinger, exerting pressure with their left thumb.

No matter how old you are, you always come to a new starting point and a new beginning. The second chakra, where sexuality and creativity resides, also carries with it something new, a secret that wants to be revealed.

This mudra helps you wake up in the morning, so it's a good idea to practice it when you're still half asleep.
