Jnana Mudra cultivates a sense of clarity and insight – which allows us to see ourselves, those around us and indeed all that enters our life with a clear perspective, rather than through the haze of conditioned patterns.
Jnana means “ wisdom”. This practice encourages our true nature to come to the foreground of our consciousness so that we can witness thoughts and feelings more objectively.
Feelings of isolation can often stand in the way of moving forward in our lives – this simple hand gesture allows us to feel connected. The index finger representing ‘individual consciousness’ and the thumb ‘universal consciousness – their connection symbolises building a bridge between the two worlds and so creating a sense of unity and wholeness.
Some of the many benefits of this practice include:
- Perfect balance between relaxation and alertness
- Cultivates mental clarity and equanimity
- Enhances one-pointed concentration
- encourages mental clarity and equanimity
- Opens and balances Ajna Chakra
Whilst following the guided meditation notice how the breath is drawn to the upper chest, neck and head. As you breath become aware of the feeling of safety and support the gesture gives you – the feeling of connectivity and insight, allowing you to become the perfect witness where all thoughts,feelings and emotions come and go with ease like clouds in the sky – ready to reveal the light of you inner self…..
