Activating the rational mind

Naran

The mind operates with ego.

Which is the biggest finger? Ego must be the biggest finger, which is the middle finger.

Ego cannot work separately. It has to think. Index finger is the thinking mind. Ego is mind and mind thinks with the index finger. That is why both are close to each other.

You write with index finger. The moment you touch the pen, the thoughts flow. That means it must be the thinking finger– the finger that produces thoughts.

For the Mind to become a rational mind or analytical mind (index finger) the thumb has to join the middle finger, which represents ego, and the index finger which represents thinking.

Forgiveness can’t be simpler than this!!!

From the Book “Forgiveness – Why and How” by Naran S Balakumar

Mudras for Letting Go

Vata humor is formed by activating Air and Space elements (touch the thumb with index and middle finger on both the hands).

Vata means MOVEMENT.

Its primary seat is Colon. Inhalation, exhalation, circulation, communication, nervous system, excretion, co-ordination of senses – all of them require Vata humor.

When we fight with somebody, we don’t want to ask for forgiveness, because we are adamant. Earth element is more here (ring finger). Air and Space elements have to be activated.

The letting go of anger and resentment will be easier with this MUDRA.

Then we need to do the ACCEPTANCE Mudra and then do the FORGIVENESS Exercise.

Forgiveness is the door way to happiness in our lives.

Letting go of Anger! Letting in Harmony!

My husband keeps fighting with me, says a lady.

Our normal reaction is to express our anger, which we think is natural and the right thing to do. Anger will produce only anger. How to break this cycle?

Do SAFE and SECURE Mudra (on both hands, touch little and ring fingers with thumb), also called as PRAN Mudra. Our anger will come down along with the other person’s anger.

With this Mudra, chant the names of the Bach flowers BEECH, WALNUT, WILLOW, AGRIMONY, CHICORY, and CHERRY PLUM. Harmony will prevail.

Alternatively, along with this Mudra, chant the Switch Words, “BOW CONCEDE TOGETHER DIVINE”.

When you want to avoid conflict, or when you want to do the forgiveness exercise, visualize the colour GREEN. Think about the colour green and visualize any greenery before going to the place where you expect conflict.

Acceptance Mudra

How to do this Mudra? The right hand thumb touches index and middle finger, while the left hand thumb touches middle finger and ring finger. This is also called PUSHAN Mudra.

  • When there is a conflict and we wants to remain peaceful, we can do this Mudra and chant “I am sorry, please forgive me, Love Thanks Divine”.
  • When we want to stop criticizing others or when we want to have tolerance, we can be in the Acceptance Mudra and chant, “I am sorry. Please forgive me. Love Thanks Divine”.
  • When we want to shed our ego and pride, we can be in the Acceptance Mudra and go on affirming within, “I am sorry. Please forgive me. Love! Thanks! Divine!”
