04 Jan Meditate Like Buddha with Dhyana Mudra!
Our bodies carry electrical impulses along neurons from our body to our brain. Think of the tips of your fingers as electrical wires, each finger carrying energy that connects a specific part of your body to a specific part of your mind. By adding a mudra (Sanskrit for “seal”) to your meditation, you can loop an energy circuit continually through your body. Each mudra is specialized to produce a specific effect.
Dhyana Mudra, is utilized to develop a high state of concentration. The Buddha was often depicted employing this mudra. Want to meditate like Buddha? Here’s How: Sit cross-legged, with hands in your lap, one hand over the other (whichever is the most comfortable). Bring your two thumbs together so that they make the shape of a pyramid. Thumbs are the electrical wire that connects to your intellect; it’s energy = CLARITY. Enter meditation, observing any thoughts, sensations or feelings without judgement. Simply watch them entering your field of consciousness, dissolving, and reappearing. Perhaps over time and practice these will lessen, or the space in between them will increase. Notice that when you loose concentration, your thumbs will lower. As soon as you notice this happening, reestablish your mudra.
