Hakini Mudra encourages healing and harmony at every level of our being – physical, mental and spiritual. Bringing the tips of all the fingers together balances and integrates the five elements and the first six chakras within the body. This overall integration is symbolised by the shape of our hands as if holding all that we ever needed and more – as we hold this mudra we are able to access the sense of our inherent wholeness and unity within and all around us.
Hakini means “ power or control”. Hakini is a Hindu goddess who controls the subtle mind – presiding over Ajna Chakra our centre of wisdom and clarity
This gesture helps us to breath fully, it encourages both nostrils to flow freely which in turn balance the right and left side of our brain. We can also experience a deep sense of integration between the masculine (pingala) and feminine (ida) sides of our self which harmonises our active and receptive qualities bringing about perfect balance.
Some of the many benefits of this practice include:
- Instills a sense of wholeness and unity
- Builds self esteem
- Awakens joy and a deep sense of well being
- Encourages overall health and healing
- Opens and balances Sahasrara Chakra
Whilst following the guided meditation notice how the breath is drawn from the base of your body to the very top of your crown on each inhale, and how each exhalation allows you to relax into yourself and completely relax. As you breath become aware of the crown of your head and the feeling of divine wisdom and light – feeling a sense of unity between the inner and the outer energy of the body.
