Jnana means ‘Wisdom’ and this mudra allows you to open to your whole and complete self, represented by the CIRCLE of your index finger joined with the thumb. Often we are held back by limiting beliefs that no longer serve us or the world. Practicing Jnana mudra will help you to let go what is old, and open in the spirit of Beginner’s Mind, enhancing your ability to see with fresh eyes and heart yourself, others and the world to expand your possibilities and potential.
“In my Beginner’s Mind there are Unlimited Possibilities.”
HOW TO: Draw your elbows into your waist comfortably as you turn your palms upward, joining index fingers to the thumbs. Or rest the backs of your hands on your lap. Hold for 5-10 natural breaths. State the intention statement three times out loud, then silently. Notice how you feel in body, mind, and emotions. No known cautions.
