Mudras: finger yoga with Juliette Dumas

This finger yoga brings many benefits, but what are they? How to use it ? And how do you put your well-being in your hands?

Juliette Dumas, author of numerous books, lecturer and founder of the Mudra schoolexplains to us today the interest of the mudras.

After a childhood spent in Africa, she felt out of place when she arrived in France. It was after writing a book entitled “1 minute a day to feel the sun even when it’s not shining” and a lot of research that she became interested in mudras. These symbolic gestures helped her regain a sense of well-being. So she decided to share her knowledge and experience with others

What is a mudra?

The Sanskrit term mudra translates into English as “seal”. It is used to describe symbolic gestures that can be used to channel the flow of energy in the body.

These gestures originate from the Vedas, these ancient sciences that have existed for more than 3000 years. So can we learn them? How ? And how often should they be practiced?

Julliette explains to us that the mudras are accessible to everyone and anywhere. That they have an interest in each stage of our life, from the moment we are interested in them. With the crucial advantage, that the only tools required are our hands.

The benefits of finger yoga

These finger postures help regulate our energies to soothe the mind. By using these symbolic gestures, it is possible to relieve stress, anger, sadness, headaches, backaches and many others. Or more precisely to start a healing process.

But how to circulate the energy through the hands? Since that is the purpose of the mudras, to use the energy to get better. Well, first of all: the main thing is first to feel something.

Then, by our hands which have a diagram, like a mental keyboard which makes it possible to send very precise information in our body or our mental.

This information is in direct correlation with our chakras and the elements that we will activate according to the position of our fingers. Also depending on how the hands are used together.

There are two “main” families: the Hasta mudra and the Tattwa mudra. Hasta mudra is when the fingers of both hands touch each other and Tattwa mudra is when the fingers of one hand touch each other.

Juliette gives us in this program several examples of stimulation of the same element but in different ways, with different goals.

The added value of visualization

Visualization will allow us to let go of our emotion or, on the contrary, to accentuate its purpose. It helps to reinforce the effects of the mudras by focusing on a specific mental image or intention while practicing. For example, when practicing a mudra for stress relief, you can focus on a mental image of a peaceful place or a feeling of calm and relaxation.

Through anecdotes, Juliette tells us about the effects of mudras and encourages us to explore them to improve everyday ailments. You can thus begin to take care of your energy in an autonomous way. But to find out more, you can learn directly with Juliette thanks to her book, her card game, her programs and her workshops.
