A mudra is a symbolic or ritual gesture in Hinduism and Buddhism. In yoga, mudras are used in conjunction with yogic breathing exercises, generally while seated, to stimulate different parts of the body involved with breathing and to affect the flow of energy in the body. Each area of the hand has a reflex reaction in a specific part of the brain; applying light pressure to these areas ‘activates’ the corresponding regions of the brain. A mudra locks and guides energy flow.

The Shuni Mudra, also known as the ‘seal of patience’, is formed by joining the tips of the middle finger and thumb. The middle finger represents Aakash and courage to hold duty and responsibility. The thumb represents fire and divine nature. This gesture symbolises patience, discernment, focus and discipline. When used during meditation, Shuni Mudra can help encourage patience and the courage to fulfill one’s responsibilities. It also helps to develop noble thoughts and turn negative emotions into positive ones.

Time to shed. And to mark another phase of my personal/spiritual development.
