The Healing Power of Your Hands

Mudras are positions of the hands that are said to influence the energy of your physical, emotional and spiritual body. Mudras have been used in the East for thousands of years and were practiced by many spiritual leaders including Buddha. Today, Mudras are still used in Yoga and meditation. Sometimes we may subconsciously place our hands into Mudra positions without even knowing it and other times we can use them to help channel and stimulate healing. There are hundreds of Mudras but here are some of the most common: 1.) The tip of the index finger touches the tip of the thumb while the other fingers remain straight.
