Put Your Hands Together
Every spiritual tradition intends, in its own way, to bring together the heavens and earth. And they do it the same way. How? It’s as easy as joining your two hands together.
Every one of the thousands of nerves in your body can be stimulated through the hands, but that’s not all. These nerves both give and receive information. When you join your hands together you create a closed circuit, through which you begin to balance the two hemispheres of the brain. The rest of the nervous system follows suit, energizing your entire system, evoking both calmness and clarity. To complete the posture, press your thumbs gently into the sternum, at the center of the chest. This stimulates the thymus gland, which boosts your immune and nervous systems. The result is a sense of well-being, biological reverence and spiritual experience.
