The Anamika mudra is associated with the sacral chakra which is in sync with the core quality of self-healing. It means gesture of the ring finger and is referring to the ring finger. This mudra is helpful with:
Moving forward away from addictions and codependency
Fostering healthy intimate relationships
Supporting the reproductive and urinary systems
How do I practice the Anamika Mudra?
Hold your palms just below your breast bone and above your belly button
Curl your 2nd, 3rd and pinky fingers back into your palm
Gently lay your thumbs on your folder index (pointer) finger
Bring your ring fingers to touch at the tip
Relax your shoulders back and down.
Allow your elbows to be away from your body pointing toward the sides
Take several natural breaths
More about Anamika
Practice of this mudra instills a sense of coming back to ones self, our home, cultivating a sense of comfort and ease. The more we experience inner comfort we connect more to our wholeness and it increases our ability to stay centered no matter the environment or circumstances. This also serves as a foundation to healing relationships.
The sacral chakra is in the pelvic area which is represented by the water element. This mudra also supports qualities of water including flexibility and adaptability. Practice of this mudra may support the release of energy blockages caused by feelings of abandonment, addition and codependency.
I am in tune with the waves of my inner sea and nourished by waves of healing energy.

I suggest that you practice the Anamika mudra at least 2-3 times a day for at least one minute. As time permits you can increase the time up to five minutes. Share your experience throughout the week using the hashtag #MudraMonday and #MindsetStrategist on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!
