Thumbs touch the ring fingers. Right hand is near the belly, facing upward; Left hand faces downward. The Solar nadi energy channel is called Pingala meaning ‘fiery, reddish’. Pingala mudra activates the flow of solar energy to awaken the right side of the body and breath through the right nostril. This mudra empowers your ability to support making your dreams and aspirations reality with enhanced concentration and energy.
Right hand on top of the Left. Hands float in front of the solar plexus area just below the ribs. Grounded and rooted in the present moment, on Mother Earth (represented by the left hand), you stand tall and confident in your commitment (represented by the right hand). Shivalingam mudra brings potency, clarity and determination for your true purpose. Especially helpful for committing to your unique life path.
Hands float in front of the solar area just below the ribs, with the ‘diamond’ shape pointing outward from solar plexus. ‘Vajra’ means diamond and it directs breath and energy into the third chakra called ‘Manipura’ meaning the city of gems: I find this name gives both an amazing visual and feeling of light, sparkling radiance within my center!
CAUTIONS: Those with hypertension should monitor effects because these mudras can increase circulatory flow and energy to the heart, especially Shivalingam and Pingala (Vajra has no cautions).
