Padma mudra, also known as the Lotus Mudra, is a great way to allow love into the heart space and heal ourselves from any emotional trauma or feeling of loneliness. During the Fall Equinox, we may find ourselves wanting to live more freely and openly. This mudra is a great tool to use to allow space for that.
Padma Mudra is also particularly great for fertility because it represents purity and balance. Like the Lotus Flower, rising up from murky waters, this mudra inspires the transition from fear and attachment to a deeper connection to the beauty of your soul.
Placing your hands at the center of the chest in prayer, start to open up the palms, leaving the thumbs and pinky fingers of the hands connected. The pointer, middle and ring fingers will splay open like a Lotus flower. Enjoy a few breaths here with the eyes closed as you feel a release in the third chakra.
