How Hand Mudras Work?


Hand Mudras miracle cure-all effect fascinated people who are looking for instant, effective and safe healing method. For many years, this practice has resulted to the healing of almost all diseases from a simple toothache to a heart attack. Amazing isn’t it? But what makes Hand Mudras work?

How hand mudras works


The human body uses the five elements of the universe- the earth, air, water, fire and ether (Aakash or minute intercellular element). Each finger represents an element. The thumb is Fire, the forefinger is Wind, the middle finger is Ether, the ring finger is Earth, and the small finger is Water.

Mudra works by connecting one finger to the thumb. The proper position of fingers and intensity of the pressure supports healing. By pressing, touching, pointing or curling the fingers, you are creating energy seals that send reflexes or messages towards your brain.Hand Mudras generate and direct “prana” or life energy to body part that needs assistance. The hand connection creates an electromagnetic current which balances the energy of the body and heals the affected area.  Diseases are caused by elements’ imbalance which weakens body’s immune system. The developed “prana” will attack the pained area to facilitate healing, balance the level of elements and restore the condition of the body.

Even Science reveals that human fingertips have free electrons or nerve root endings which are activated by connecting two tips. Pressing them together builds up strong energy which is redirected to the body through nerve channels until it reaches the brain. During the course of its flow, the “prana” (life force energy) stimulates chakras (energy centers) of the body. This essential energy neutralizes and removes blockades that are formed inside the body. When this happens, the basic elements are balanced which restore the healthy state of glands, veins, tendons and sensory organs.The tension is automatic and responsive. Pressure can also be controlled. Keeping fingertips connected for specified period creates tension which tones up body’s central nervous system.

Compared to other healing practices, Mudras can be used anytime, anywhere and whatever position you want. Hand Mudras are convenient and easy to do as long as you can move the fingers of your two hands. You can do it while walking, sitting or lying down. However, sitting comfortably is still the best if you want to gain faster and better results. These advantages benefit elderly and sick people.To restore wellness of the body, mind and spirit, master the different types of Hand Mudras.

During the initial stage, perform your chosen technique for at least ten minutes then gradually increase it to 30 minutes until you can do it for one hour to get the best outcome. When you are practicing Mudras, take 12 breaths and feel the flow of “prana” as it spreads and energizes your whole body. It is also recommended to practice it with mind exercise or neurobics. Hand Mudras practice strengthens psychic abilities of people who are gifted with mental power. Generally, the capacity of the mind to receive and sends back essential healing command is stronger with Hand Mudras practice.

Imagine that you are sitting at the center of a wheel (life cycle), close to the hub. The wheel may turn as much as it wants, but this has no effect on you(the truth of life our Atma is eternal and no change for it). However, when you move from the center and sit on one of the spokes or at the edge, you must use all of your strength to avoid losing your stability. This applies to all the situations in our life. When we are not centered, meaning when we are “beside” ourselves, that creates all types of tensions. One person may have pressure in the stomach; another person has tension in other parts like neck, back, pelvis, or chest. According to the Five Element Theory of Chinese, the centering force is associated with the earth(Prithvi) element (see Appendix C), which rules the energy of the stomach, spleen, and pancreas. The Rudra Mudra strengthens the earth(Prithvi) element and its organs. If the chi (the Chinese term for elemental energy) suffers a distinct reduce because of weakened earth(Prithvi) energy, there will also be a diminished supply to the head area as a result. Consequently, the person feels listless, dull, or even dizzy, weighed down, Such a state of weakness can be relieved or even eliminated with this mudra.
