Pushan Mudra

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

This mudra expresses accepting and receiving with one hand and giving or letting go with the other hand. When practiced together it influences the energy currents that are responsible for absorbing and using food for fuel, as well as for eliminating food. It has a relaxing effect on the solar plexus (the stomach, liver, spleen and gall bladder) and helps regulate the autonomic nervous system.  It has an excellent effect on nausea and indigestion.

Right hand:

The tips of the thumb, index finger, and middle finger are on top of each other; the other fingers are extended.

Left hand:

The tips of the thumb, middle finger, and ring finger are on top of each other; the other fingers are extended


With every inhale and exhale, there is light and clarity in your mind and emotions.

Affirmation: I accept everything that is good for me and embrace it.  I release everything that no longer serves me.
