Mudras: Lotus Mudra

This mudra also belongs to the Group of spiritual mudras, therefore it is best to not give it a practice time since it will be different for each person.

Mudra Lotus

Joins hands to the chest so that they only touch on the bottom and the tips of the fingers: it's the cocoon of the Lotus Flower. Now open your hands, but not your little fingers and thumbs are no longer in contact. It extends and separates the other fingers as much as possible. After four deep breathing movements, returns to close your hands to form the cocoon, joins the long fingers of both hands nails; now the backs of fingers, backs of hands, and leaves flickering hands, very relaxed, so for a while. Following the same steps, again drawing hands cocoon shape and open Lotus Flower. Repeat several times.

This mudra is the heart chakra and symbolizes the purity of this body. Love dwells in the heart and therefore also the kindness, affection, communication, all qualities that should keep clean and give them unconditionally, like an open flower offered his chalice to insects. It gives them food and warmth on cold nights. To change it is pollinated by insects and can meet the reason for its existence. We are also more or less linked to the people around us, good and bad, and we depend on them. But the open flower has still another message for us. Opens to the Sun, the divine principle, and is left to give as much as needed; It is gift abundantly and receives much more than it "needs". Flowers brighten up us because itself they carry themselves and reflect the divine face.

Practice this mudra when you feel exhausted, exploited, misunderstood or only. Open yourself to the divine forces and get everything that you need, and much more.

It is displayed in your heart a Lotus bud (or a water lily). With each breath flower opens a little more, until finally it remains entirely open and you can get inside all light from the Sun. The flower is filled with light, lightness, warmth, love, enthusiasm and happiness.
