Mudra for integrating right and left hemispheres of the brain


Earlier in the week we practiced some asanas and a breathing technique to integrate right and left hemispheres of the brain which is important for most tasks, for learning and planning (see link below).
Mudras too can help with this. Mudras are hand gestures that act as energy locks that can cause subtle changes in your body and mind.  

Bhairava mudra, sometimes called Shiva mudra, is often used in meditation to balance energy flow.  As well as balancing right and left hemispheres of the brain this mudra helps with anxiety.  It also represents the union of the individual consciousness with that of the divine.

To practice Bhairava mudra rest the right hand in the palm of the left.  Hold the mudra for several minutes as you watch your breath.
