In Kundalini Yoga we can use different mudras to stimulate the different energetic channels or meridian points in our fingers. This mudra stimulates the positive ego (thumb) and the pinkie finger (Mercury). Mercury rules the domain of the mind, communication and electrical systems. This mudra works to bring you clarity and effectiveness through the power of your communication.
The word of us as humans binds us to one another so we need to be as precise and as impactful as possible. The less we speak, the better. Through speaking, we are re-lay-ting to one another. It is a relay of two people or more. That is what a relay-tionship is, the relating of two human beings. Through our words, we can either create heaven on earth or hell on earth. The word has its own psyche and potential, like a seed.
Not only are we communicating with our word, but we are also communicating with our gestures, our tones and our energy. Which chakra are you communicating from? What do you really mean?
When you realise the power of your own word, you will begin to speak from a state of presence and you will relate to others in a compassionate and in a harmonious way.
When we succeed in what Yogi Bhajan describes as conscious communication:
- The impossible becomes possible
- You use your intuition not your impulse
- You find your character not just your characteristics
- Your word is real and you are real
- Every word you speak has an impact because you are fully present
This meditation will activate your true self and stimulate the meridian points of the thumb (positive ego) and the Mercury finger (communication). It will bring you to a state of neutrality and bring you into a state where easeful and powerful communication is possible.
