To heal the emotional wounds of the heart, we need to bring calm to the nerves that hold the wound. A break in relationship (to others or to our Self) has almost identical reactions in the nervous system and brain as a physical injury or loss of limb.
This soothing meditation allows the autonomic system to relax, and the breath to slow to a meditative pace, bringing renewal and relaxation to the heart and mind.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine and a light Neck Lock.
Mudra: Palms together, lightly touching. The tip of the Saturn (middle) finger is at the level of the Third Eye Point. The forearms are horizontal to the ground, elbows high. Look within.
Continue for 11, 31, or 62 minutes. Then inhale, exhale, relax the breath, and with clasped hands stretch the arms up for 2 minutes.
No mantra or breath are specified for this meditation.
The mudra in this meditation helps creates balance by generating a subtle pressure to adjust the heart meridian along the little finger and outer forearm. This activates the “action nerve” junction with the autonomic system, which allows it to reset itself by keeping the forearms parallel to the ground and involving the armpit reflexes. Finally, it uses the pranic influence of the middle finger and its Saturn and air qualities to quell residual emotional storms.
