Definition - What does Detoxification Mudra mean?
Detoxification Mudra is a sacred hand gesture or 'seal' that can be used to direct energy toward the detoxification process. It helps to cleanse the body's energy channels, as well as clear the mind of negative energy and habit patterns. It is important to take part in a detoxification treatment at least once a year, and this mudra can be used to help boost this process.
Follow these steps to practice Detoxification Mudra:
- Find a quiet place, free from distraction. Either lie down, sit or stand in a stable and grounded position.
- On both hands, place the tips of your thumbs on the inside of the lower joint of your ring fingers.
- Focus on taking deep, steady, calming breaths.
This mudra can be practiced at any time, anywhere for as long as required. It is particularly effective if held during meditation.
Yogapedia explains Detoxification Mudra
Detoxification Mudra stimulates the elimination of toxins from the body, and the release of negative energy from the mind. When practicing this mudra, it can help to visualize thoughts, emotions or situations that you wish to release from your life, or negative habits that are making you feel stuck. Bring to mind whatever it is you wish to manifest in life, and this mudra will help to clear space and direct positive energy to flow.
It is particularly beneficial to practice Detoxification Mudra during any kind of detoxification or purifying process, in which case it is best to use it whilst lying down. Since detoxification can be challenging for the body and mind, it is important to take lots of rest and drink plenty of water during this time.
