Mudras with Megan
There is magic in your hands. By engaging in a Mudra practice, we stimulate various pressure points in our fingers and palms creating an energetic current of intention. Mudras are held between 2-45 minutes and may also be combined with a meditation and/or pranayama practice. The power is in your fingertips.
I first came across a Mudra practice in 2009, which was a perfect time as I was in Reiki training, yoga training, and was trying my hand (pun intended) at drawing/painting. This is a subtle practice that asks us to sit quietly and tune in. We use our hands in so many different ways (greeting, creating, cooking, eating, typing, creating, etc.) and to bring this intentional practice in, for me, introduced a ritualistic and sacred aspect to how we use our hands.
Later in life, a Curandero from one of my Ayahuasca experiences and I had a conversation about how potent the energy in our hands is. She told me that as a healer in her community, she could do nothing of low vibrational energy with her hands. “They were for healing,” she said. And to do anything but be of service in healing, would be contrary to their existence and taint their power.
This conversation reinvigorated my work with Mudra and I often find myself in various mudras during Ceremony, creating currents of energy flowing through me. Although secondary, we have Chakras in our hands. We can often feeling these energy centers when we rub our hands together, creating some heat, and play with the pull as we begin to separate our hands. There are differing ideas about these chakras, but for me, the act as conduits when engaged in healing work, channeling various energies rooted in the intentions of the session. Mudra helps create these intentions and channel the energy of the Hand Chakras.
