We Can Create Feelings Of Kindness & Compassion by Meditating with our Hands in "Kalesvara Mudra" (Gesture)
Instructions of How to do the Heart Hand Gesture during Meditation
Sit comfortably, with a straight spine. Feel tall.
With your elbows bent, bring your hands up until they meet in front of the body at the level of your heart. The elbows should be held up almost to the level of the hands, and away from the body.
Bend the index fingers of each hand in toward the palm and press them together at the second joint. Extend your middle fingers so that there are touching and pointing way from your body. Curl the rest of your fingers (ring and little fingers) into your palm.
Touch the thumbs together at their tips, pointing or angled downward (refer to the above photo). Create a shape that resembles a heart.
Hold your hands in this mudra about a hand's width away from your body, with your elbows and hands held approximately at same level.
Relax your shoulders back and down.
Meditation Pointers with the Heart Hand Gesture
Keep your attention on your breath, heart center, hand mudra or affirmation.
Try not to wrestle with your thoughts, just allow them to filter through, and then return your focus back onto your breath or established focal point. You can also focus your attention at the tip of your nose.
Long, deep natural breaths. Be gentle.
Meditate with the hands in this heart shape mudra, daily, for 3-5 minutes. A good practice goal is 10+ minutes.
Energy Centers: Heart (Green); Throat (Blue) and Third-Eye (Indigo).
“Silence, harmony and peace fill my entire being.”
"Kindness is in my hands."
"Kindness is my my heart."
Inhale completely, gently hold your breath and mentally recite your affirmation. Next, exhale, hold the breath out, and repeat the same affirmation. If needed, repeat the same process with the affirmation.
To finish your meditation: relax your breath, sit quietly, and abide in peace and calm. Be sure to offer gratitude to whom you feel necessary.
