The effectiveness of mudras can be intensified immensely with breathing. That’s why it’s so important to know what your breathing is doing. By understanding the following principles, you can influence the effectiveness of Mudra on your own needs.
The importance of deep breathing
Pay attention to the symmetrical posture and keep your arms an inch away from your body. Even this position alone brings with it a sense of inner balance and harmony since it regulates the activity of the nervous system and the endocrine glands.
Breathing and effectiveness of mudra
In addition to carbon dioxide, we exhale more energy at a subtle level. Because of this, at the beginning of a mudra, you should always exhale vigorously several times to make room for what you want to achieve.
Extend the pause in between the exhalation and inhalation. This is the most important aspect of the breathing process. The internal process takes place during breaks at all levels.
If you practice a mudra to calm yourself down, you slow down your breathing.
If you practice mudra to cool yourself, strengthen your breathing.
The best breathing quality is achieved when the breathing is slow, deep, rhythmic, fluid and fine.
Exhale several times at the beginning of Mudra meditation and let the breath become deeper and slower. Now you have three options.
- Concentrate on your hands and fingers and apply the gentle pressure where they touch.
- While you inhale, you can press your fingertips a little more and release the pressure you exhale.
- You can do it backwards and exhale a little more pressure, then release the pressure when inhaling.
Each variation has a special effect. The first centres of variation create an inner balance and generally strengthen the power. The second variant strengthens the will and refreshes. The third variant calms and relaxes.
Try these variations and feel the difference yourself. You may not feel the effect immediately, but it’s still there.
The external circumstances of our lives are usually shaped by our imagination and the content of our mind. So we have the opportunity to shape our internal images so that we can enjoy life, work successfully and cultivate relationships of love and understanding.
It is very important to create an unshakable faith and be full of fervour and serenity to accompany the images we have created. We have to create small success stories for ourselves because what works in a small wall will succeed on a larger scale. We can build that trust and build it slowly. Imagine what would happen if many people at the same time imagine a beautiful world with rich flora, happy animals and happy people and firmly believe that this is possible.
If we can clearly express what we do not want and formulate our desires and needs, this can already be the beginning of a new way of life. For many years. I have worked with affirmations, sometimes more, sometimes less. These are always amazing effects that surprised me, for example. One day my kitten disappeared. I repeated the same phrase throughout the day: “With divine power, I find my kitten.”
In the afternoon I only know where my kitten was. The woman was completely confused when I told her that my cat was in her garage, but it was true. It’s easy and some people even find it a little naive. But the simplest and most naive things tend to have the greatest active power.
The same principle applies to affirmations as well as visualizations. Tell them to fall into faith, fervour and serenity. You can pronounce them once or three times during or after meditation. You can also take a break during the day and talk. Your affirmations in a low or high voice. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and talk about what you really want from what is good for you.
If you want to get rid of something persistent, denial can also help. But talk about it first by exhaling vigorously. For example, “this hatred (or feeling, guilt, pain, fear, desire to smoke, etc.) will disappear and dissolve immediately.
