Take Mudras Seriously for Better Effects
There are five elements – Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Using these five elements, we can manipulate our life as well as physical problems. To solve physical problems we need perseverance and discipline. We have to sit and do Mudras for a longer period of time and of course we don’t want to do that.
When there is a physical problem, we can improve with help of Mudras. We can also meditate using Mudras. We can also form our own Mudras. If we know how it works then we can form our own Mudras.
What’s so special about Mudras
Mudras are special techniques or locks that are applied in a way that can impact any part our bodies – Pranic, Mental, Emotional and Physical. Like the circulation of the blood, Prana is circulated inside us. We can do Mudras to lock them in any place we want.
What’s the specialty of Mudra in healing practices?
There are many therapies of healing available. All of them are good in some way. However, they focus on one aspect of our body. For example, Allopathic practices concentrates on physical body only. It does not include the mind of the patient into consideration. So that system has side effects.
Neither psychotherapy alone will not work nor can affirmations alone help for physical body problems. Sometimes they do. Though not all the times, for they don’t consider other aspects of human beings.
Homeopathy considers all aspects of human beings. However, it’s a complex system. A few people understand so there is lot of failure too.
Pranic healing and Reiki healing manipulate the Pranic body only. You can do a lot with Reiki as touch healing is applied and thus body pranic body and mind are involved.
The one therapy that combines body, mind and Prana is Mudras
KUNJITHA PADAM SHARANAM
No matter how big the physical problem, it will heal. It will heal any physical problem. In cases when doctors are not able to diagnose or in cases where doctors who complicate the case. This mantra “Kunjitha Padam Sharanam” will work in those cases. Those who have experienced it are also present here.
If we hear someone is in the hospital or if someone is physically very unwell – this will work. We can write it and keep it also for them if they cannot chant.
