Prithivi Mudra
Earth Mudra

Place the tips of the thumb and ring finger on top of each other, using light pressure. Extend the
other fingers. Do this with each hand. Do as needed, or use three times a day for 15 minutes.

The Prithivi Mudra can eliminate an energy deficit in the root chakra. Whether or not you feel psychologically or physically strong and vital is largely dependent upon this energy. This finger position also intensifies the sense of smell and is good far the nails, skin, hair, and bones. Ifs you feel uncertain of your steps while walking, the Prithivi Mudra can restore your equilibrium and trust. This mudra 'also activates the root chakra, in which our elemental force resides. We also need stability and nourishment to grow and be effective in our place in the world. The purpose of our lives is to connect with the Divine, which means we must also orient ourselves toward the light and open up like a flower that is being pollinated. For us, this may mean experiencing grace. This mudra can give us everything that we need for a meaningful life. I use it when I feel insecure and need inner stability and self-assurance. Moreover, it stimulates the body temperature, the liver, and the stomach.

Stand or sit on a chair. Keep your feet parallel and their soles flat on the ground. Inhalation: Imagine that you are absorbing Earth energy through the soles of your feet. Guide it up through your legs, back, and throat into your head and far beyond into the cosmos. Hold your breath for a few seconds. Exhalation: Like a golden rain, the energy sinks back to Earth as the renewing force. There is a balance between taking and giving. Now imagine a catch basin in your pelvic floor and let the energy rain flow into your pelvis. Repeat thisa number of times.

Affirmation
The power of Earth gives me secure stability, staying power and assertiveness, self-assurance, and self-confrdence. The power of the cosmos gives me enthusiasm, pleasure, and joy.
