As you hold the mudra, take several deep and slow breaths to slow the mind down and become aware of the body. Notice as you breath what is happening around the navel.
Allow each breath to flow into the belly and soften the area around the navel and below the diaphragm, the seat of the solar plexus. Visualize the breath as a golden light moving into this space of the body. This golden light brings warmth to the stomach and intestines, and stokes the fire of your digestion.
Continue to breathe consciously, visualizing anything that feels stagnant or undigested in your body and mind dissolving with the the gentle fire that glows through the belly. Repeat the affirmation, “As my entire being is nourished completely, I experience optimal health and vitality.”
