Sum Faht Mudra Meditation

Each mudra moves slowly and fluidly into the other – do not rush or move too abruptly. Each mudra should be held for the same amount of time; a minute or more. Remember to breathe into the tantien throughout.
Bow – Respect – Begin with the gesture of respect, bowing sincerely.

Earth Mudra – Palms on knees; fingertips pointing toward the ground. We are connecting to the Earth. Making a solid foundation.

Lower Backbone – Left hand creates a soft fist 6 inches away from the solar plexus. This represents the lower half of the spine – figurative and literal foundation.

Upper Backbone – Right Fist over Left. Now we are addressing the entire spine and the flow of energies there. Building courage; physically, emotionally, spiritually.

Heart Energy Circulation – Left hand over right; thumb tips meeting; palms up in lap; circulate energy; Up the Left arm, toward the heart, down the right arm and around.

Yin Yang Mudra – bring left palm up chest level, turn over, facing the right, keeping the elbow down; feel the energy between the two palms. Accept all your polarities and dualities.

Throat Chakra – Bring palms together (prayer), extend thumbs to point at throat. Addressing the energies of the throat, opening, balancing and enhancing our ability to speak with righteousness.
