Bhu Mudra encourages a sense of stability, grounding and a deep connection with the earth – as we deepen our awareness of the earth and our place on it we naturally inhabit our bodies more completely and feelings of security and self confidence grow.
Bhu means earth and in this gesture the body forms the shape of a mountain firmly planted in the earth. With our roots deep in Mother Bhumi we can bring our awareness to Mooladhara Chakra our energetic root at the base of our body and bring this centre to life with the combination of Mudra, Chant, Visualisation and positive affirmation.
Some of the many benefits of this practice include:
- Cultivating a sense of stability in the body and the mind
- Reduces blood pressure
- Encourages steady posture by activating a downward current of energy in the body
- Instills the qualities of patience, security and consistency
- Opens and balances Mooladhara Chakra
Whilst following the guided meditation visualise your body as a mountain, with your legs as the base, your arms as the slopes and the crown of your head as the mountain peak. One with the earth and infused with her healing qualities allow yourself to rest in the within your mountain like stability – allowing its stillness to permeate your entire being.
Bring the awareness to the earth and the physical connection you have with it – feel a sense of gratitude to Mother Bhumi and all that she provides every day.
