Mudras for Swadhisthana Chakra

Mudras for Swadhisthana Chakra

‘Mudra’ is a Sanskrit term that translates to ‘hand gesture.’ Mudras are precise hand gestures designed to improve the flow of energy, Prana, in the body and mind. Mudras have been used since ancient times to express deeper significance in several Hindu and Buddhist ceremonies and traditional dance forms. Mudras are part of the yogic and Vedic healing practice and they continue being practiced nowadays in yoga. When we hear the term yoga, we usually think in yoga asanas and breathing patterns or pranayama, however in any yoga practice yoga mudras or hand gestures are combined, being Namaste the most common and popular.

The term “mudra” is derived from the Sanskrit terms muda and dra, which mean “bliss dissolving,” and denotes to that which dissolves dualism and brings the Yogi and the Divine together.

Yoga Mudra is the technique that works by modifying or diverting energy flow throughout the body through hand movements along acupuncture meridians, putting our energy body into perfect harmony or balance. Because the hands contain all of the acupuncture meridians, they are regarded as the body’s control panel. The five fingers of a hand symbolize the five elements of the body, known as Pancha Mahabhutas, which are fire, water, air, sky, and earth. According to Ayurveda, these energies must be in balance for the body to be at its best health and balance.

When we place our fingers and hands in a specific way, whether we bend, press, cross, extend, or touch our fingers with the other fingers, we are actually altering the energy flow, prana, through these acupuncture points, which influences and stimulates specific areas of the brain and aids in the restoration of elemental balance in the body.

Mudras are practiced along with meditation and breathing techniques to direct the flow of energy throughout the body. It takes some time to become sensitive to the effects of these mudras. To begin, sit in a comfortable meditation posture such as Sukhasana (easy pose), Vajrasana (diamond pose), or Padmasana (lotus pose).

If you don’t feel comfortable sitting on the floor, you may sit on a chair with your back straight. It is critical to warm up your hands before executing these mudras in order to feel the feelings.

It is best to sit in a peaceful and quiet environment that is devoid of distractions. Keeping the eyes closed boosts the healing potential and allows you to observe the feelings that grow inside during the practice.

Mudras for Swadhisthana chakra are intended to ignite your creativity, expression, passion, emotional wellbeing and sensitivity, fearlessness, joyful experiences, pleasure, taste, sensuality, and sexual energy, which sum totals to the unique identity that you are born with. It is where you are nurtured to play the Leela or drama of life with your identity as a child, sibling, parent, spouse, friend, employee, director, actor, engineer, writer, politician, and so on.

Below are some of the most practiced and effective Mudras for Swadhisthana. It is important to note that these are the stone foundation mudras for Swadhisthana from which ones many variations of mudras developed into other similar gestures, just in the same way yoga asanas are practiced in multiple variations too.

  • The first step is to massage your hands together for 20 to 30 seconds to stimulate circulation. The friction will cause warmth to rise from your hands, indicating that all of the nerve endings in your hands have been activated, and thus, activating each cell associated to numerous organs.
  • Place your hands on your lap, and your palms facing up; attempt to calm your mind in the serenity and silence of nature to experience the tingling or pulsing feelings in your hands and body. Uphold this posture for at least 15 seconds.
  • Then, with your fingers pressed in certain patterns, execute different mudras, and apply enough pressure to feel the energy flow. Gentleness is key; little is more when it comes to mudras. Remember that you cannot damage yourself if you make a mistake, so you can relax and proceed.

Our energy body governs our physical body to a large degree. Disorders develop as a result of an imbalance in energy in the different organs and their related chakras; mudras may assist balance these energy levels and prana. Yoga mudras even when looking simple, they may be a very effective therapeutic tool.

Yoni Mudra

Yoni Mudra directs the breath into the Sacral chakra region of the body, which houses our emotions and sentiments. This mudra cultivates a feeling of tranquility, fluidity, and inner sustenance, promoting emotional equilibrium
and the capacity to cope more readily with life’s obstacles. Yoni represents the “womb of creation,” and holding this gesture helps us to experience the sensation of returning to the womb, giving a sense of warmth and security that is a representation of our actual nature. With this feeling of security, we may direct our attention on the Sacral (Swadhisthana) Chakra.

Yoni mudra is the most practiced and beneficial gesture to softly awaken, balance and restore the delicate feelings circulating in this energy vortex.

Procedure: Sit comfortably and close your eyes to clear your thoughts with the aid of mindful breathing. Bring your hands together to the Anjali Mudra, often known as ‘namaste.’ Instead of pointing your fingers above, point them downwards towards to the earth. Place the left and right thumbs together and point them upwards, opposing the other fingers. A triangle is formed by the thumb and index finger. The following three fingers, the middle finger, the ring finger, and little finger, may be held pointing downwards with their tips touching each other, interlaced, or their backs touching each other. You may adjust the location of the three remaining fingers to suit your needs. The crucial thing is to create a triangle with your thumb and index fingers.

Hold this mudra on your pelvic floor, just below the navel, in front of your womb. Maintain this mudra. Feel and feel the impact on your physical and energetic bodies. Take note of how the mudra impacts the flow of energy in your womb and pelvic floor. You can maintain this mudra for 5-10 minutes at first, according on how far you can go. With effort and time, you should be able to raise the duration to 20-40 minutes.

Shakti Mudra

Shakti Mudra is sometimes referred to as “Shakti Chalana Mudra.” You may build a new power emanating from your Sacral chakra by doing Shakti Mudra on a regular basis. Shakti is another name for Goddess Parvati, who is famed for her femininity and kindheartedness. It relaxes the body and soothes the mind, allowing the nerves to function properly. It is also often used to treat sleep problems such as insomnia and nightmares, as well as individuals suffering from excessive levels of stress. It has been observed that Shakti mudra has enormous emotional, mental and spiritual benefits which increases with its continued practice. Shakti mudra directs the flow of energy down to the Sacral chakra, where it activates the emotional wheel, allowing it to flow freely.

Shakti mudra is especially healing for an underactive Swadhisthana as it brings a new and refreshed spiral of energies to the Sacral chakra.

Procedure: Sit in a comfortable posture, and do this gesture during a Pranayama exercise. To activate the palms, rub them together. Fold the right and left thumbs into the palms. Wrap the thumbs with the index and middle fingers. Bring the
tips of the right and left pinky and ring fingers together. Bring your hands to the Swadhisthana chakra, which is approximately two inches below your belly button. Every day, spend at least 15 minutes practicing.

Ksepana Mudra

Ksepana mudra has immediate and palpable effects. It aids in the installation of the water element in the Sacral chakra and also in the removal of negativity, stress, and tension. When it turns to be difficult to be creative and we’re feeling stuck or worried, this mudra helps to keep things going and flowing.

Ksepana mudra is especially healing for a too stressed or overactive Sacral chakra.

Procedure: Begin by bringing your palms together, interlacing your fingers, and then releasing your index fingers. Next, place your hands in front of your pelvis and point your index fingers downward. Hold on while on meditation if possible.

Prithvi Mudra

Prithvi mudra is a very symbolic hand gesture or ‘seal’ used in yoga and Ayurvedic medicine to promote healing and whole emotional and spiritual steadiness inside the body. This is an energetic raising mudra that starts to work from Muladhara upwards bringing a new feeling of vitality to Swadhisthana chakra.

Prithvi mudra is especially unleashing of very jammed Sacral chakra energies. It is very helpful when the previous mudras didn’t work enough for you.

Procedure: Close your eyes and settle into a meditation pose. Link the tips of the thumb and the ring fingers of both hands (this mudra should be practiced using both hands). Raise up the other three fingers of both hands in a relaxed manner without any tension while holding them slightly apart. Keep the mudra in place as long as you start to feel more relaxed and grounded from beneath your body.

Regular practice of this mudra strengthens your body and mind, boosts your self-confidence, and gets you rid of confusion, anxiety, fearfulness and fickle thoughts. There should be mild pressure between the touched fingers for optimal results.

As we have seen practicing yoga mudras regularly is surprisingly effective by just using our hands and blending the brief practice with a quiet environment, the exercise of pranayama (breathing techniques) and particularly, alternate nostril breathing for Swadhisthana, and chanting and focusing on the beej sound VAM. Doing it regularly is a perfect starting point to get our Sacral (Swadhisthana) Chakra balanced and move forward to more advanced healing methods in this direction.
