What is a Mudra? Is one of the most common questions that we get at Lovepray jewelry. A mudra is a hand position that will direct energy into our bodies. They are the hand signs for chakra meditation. As we meditate, and close the circle in our hands, we will visualize our energy circling back to us, and not leaving our body, therefore making us feel more energized. Different chakra hand signs may be used to direct energy to specific chakras, they are called chakra mudras.
As you may already know, our body is wise, and it's all connected.
