There is a deep secret hidden in every yoga Mudra. In ancient times, sages performed mudras to keep the five elements inside the body balanced with air, water, fire, earth, and ether. When these five elements are out of alignment, a person can become imbalanced and vulnerable to disease. Our fingers have the characteristics of these elements and each element has a specific and vital function within our body. Mudras help to adjust the flow of energy, positively affecting the inner balance of the elements.
A Sanskrit term, Prithvi means “the vast one,” known as Earth. Mudra means “gesture,” “mark” or “seal.” The Prithvi or Earth element is a vital component of bones, cartilage, skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, internal organs, and more. Prithvi Mudra builds and invigorates these components. The Earth element is also associated with the nose and can be used to overcome nasal disorders. As it reduces fire, Prithvi Mudra is also known to balance disorders associated with an imbalance of heat in the body, like emaciation, fever, and inflammation.
We come from the Earth and are made up of it. By practicing Prithvi mudra the excess amount of fire that exists in our solar plexus is balanced by the Earth element. Prithvi mudra plays a vital role in achieving and maintaining optimal health and vitality. It enhances the energy of Earth within us, which serves to restore health to all our other inner energies. Prithvi mudra is mentioned in Gheranda Samhita, Shiva Samhita and various ancient scriptures. This mudra is also beneficial for healing and promoting spiritual balance within the body.
Chakra Cleansing With Prithvi Mudra
Each of the chakras is related to each of the elements within our body. The Earth element inside our body purifies the Root and Sacral chakra. While we sit in a meditative posture in Prithvi mudra, it connects the Root and Earth, which releases negative, or low vibrational energies. Prithvi mudra harmonizes energy, opening new pathways which promote a willingness for our minds to expand.
In Sanskrit, there is a specific term called Panchabhoota which essentially means the five elements within us are significantly detoxified by Prithvi mudra. All 5 elements exist within our body, in different percentages. When balanced, they synergistically work together to support our body’s optimal wellness.
