Anjali Mudra, Gesture of Prayer or Prayer Hands
When bringing the hands together in front of the heart chakra, allow some space between the palms. If you wish, imagine this space to hold the energetic dance of the right brain-left brain or masculine/yang-feminine/yin. Can you feel the meeting place of the "positive space" (fullness of the flesh & bones of the hands) and the "negative space" (the seemingly emptiness between the hands)?
Within this mudra is opportunity to turn to a softened heart, even for just one breath cycle.
Affirmations to partner with this mudra:
"Everything is good & perfect." Or Gertrud Hirschi's suggestion, "Full of thankfulness, I receive the good that waits for me."
