Mudra for a Steady Heart
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
29 May 2020

I have for you today a two-handed mudra for a steady heart.

How to Do it. For the left hand, the tip of the third finger (the ring finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched.

For the right hand, the tip of the middle finger (the longest finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched.

On the right: Left Hand … DESCRIPTION: Shows two different mudras, one for each hand: For the left hand, the tip of the third finger (the ring finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched. For the right hand, the tip of the middle finger (the longest finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched. This photo just shows the mudras, and not how they are placed.

MARKUP: On the left: Right Hand. On the right: Left Hand …

DESCRIPTION: Shows two different mudras, one for each hand: For the left hand, the tip of the third finger (the ring finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched.

For the right hand, the tip of the middle finger (the longest finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched. This photo just shows the mudras, and not how they are placed.

So you have these two diverse mudras, one for each hand. Hold the right hand in front of the left, both hands palm forward and outstretched fingers held upward, at heart level. The elbows are relaxed down by the sides. You are sitting very quietly in meditative pose.

The elbows are relaxed down by the sides. You are sitting very quietly in meditative pose. There are two different mudras (finger positions), one for each hand: For the left hand, the tip of the third finger (the ring finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched; this mudra is only partly visible in the photo. For the right hand, the tip of the middle finger (the longest finger) and the thumb tip touch; the other fingers are outstretched (as can be seen in the photo).

What It Will Do for You. This is the Mudra for a Steady Heart. The fingers that are outstretched are like sticky barbs … like the plastic barbs they put on the edges of roofs to keep the pigeons from perching there. In this case the barbs are to ward off the thought forms of other people from the front funnel of your heart chakra. The ‘barbs’ prevent the thoughts of other people from waffling the front funnel of your heart chakra back and forth … That is the way of saying it in the world of Duality,

But if we say it in terms of Advaita, these fingers steady the inflow and outflow of vortical energy from the front stream of energy of the heart chakra.

Introduction to Healing through Mudras . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

SPONTANEOUS MUDRAS

In the past I have written a little about spontaneous mudras; the first two paragraphs below are excerpted from a prior blog …

“Spontaneous mudras or kriyas … that is, spontaneous movements of the fingers or body … although well understood in Eastern religions, are little understood in the West. Among Indian saints who evidenced spontaneous mudras or kriyas, one of the best known and most deeply loved was Anadamay Ma. For more about her, see …

Link: “Anandamayi Ma, Ecstatic Saint,”  by Andres, in Mahasara School of Meditation …  https://mahasarameditation.com/anandamayi-ma/ ..

“It is likely that Christ also used spontaneous mudras or kriyas in blessing the crowds of people that gathered around him, as there are many portraits of him using mudras.” [for instance, the well-known hand mudra with index finger and middle finger of his right hand raised in blessing] –from Link: “Baptismal Sylph,” a story by Alice B. Clagett, written on 21 April 2013; revised and published on 10 June 2018; revised on 26 April 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5UH ..

HOW HEALING LIGHT IS CHANNELED BY MUDRAS

A picture, my mom used to say, is worth a thousand words. It can convey subtleties of meaning, nuances of feeling, that words cannot. As there is so little lore regarding spontaneous mudras in the Western world, I felt it very fortunate in unexpectedly making this photograph of changes in the Light with hand position …

For more on how Light and sound may be used to heal, see my blog category: Languages of Light and Sound

BODY MUDRAS: PHYSICAL MOVEMENT AS A HEALING GESTURE

The word mudra is often used for hand gestures, but in my work the meaning is extended to mean gestures of the physical form, that affect the human energy field, or that of another person who is to be healed, or that of Earth, or that of our Solar System, and so forth. That is to say, in my work, a mudra is a healing gesture, for the healing of whatever being may be present in the Awareness of the healer at the time when the mudra takes place.

Kriyas

In traditional yogic texts, what I think of as body mudras are often called kriyas. In some yogic traditions, kriyas are mainly breathing techniques. In others they may be static body poses, or body movements. Or they may have to do with speaking sacred sounds. In kundalini yoga, which was the tradition I learned in my middle years, kriyas often involve all three: breath, static pose or movement, and sacred sound.

In recent years, I have channeled various mudras (or kriyas), which may be found in the blog category: Mudras and kriyas by Alice

Dear Ones,

Here is a meditation to clear the back funnel of the heart chakra, which becomes closed when we have the repeating thought that we have no one to ‘cover our back’. After the video is an edited Summary, which is more thorough than the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I have a new mudra for you. This is for clearing the back funnel of the heart chakra. That is the funnel that is shut down when we think we have no one covering our back.

‘Cover My Back’ Meditation
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
27 September 2016

The meditator is sitting down. The left arm is down near the side of the torso, elbow slightly bent; the fingers of the left hand are extended and held loosely together, thumb separate from fingers; and the palm is down, towards the floor. The left elbow is by the side, and the forearm is bent upward, with the hand near the head, fingers extended and held loosely together, thumb separate from fingers; the palm of the right hand is facing towards the back of the body, comfortably in line with the torso. The mudra is as in the photo below …

Imagine that both hands are full of energy. Sit with this mudra, breathing long and deep breaths; it is called ‘long, deep breathing’. As you do that, feel the energy field behind your body filling up with energy.

With your left hand you are sensing the energy of the Earth … Gaia. And with your right hand you are feeling the energy field behind your back filling up with energy and covering the back of your heart; so you have someone to cover your back now. That is what this meditation is about.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
