There often seems to be a lack of energetic practises aimed at men online so here for the men (and women too) are two mudra beneficial for men’s sexual health, empowerment and general wellbeing. These two Linga mudra can help alleviate sexual issues and also just to promote general sexual health for men. Also very good for strengthening the immune system and fighting coughs and colds. You shouldn’t do it too often as it works with fire element and too much of any one element is not balanced. Breathe in the energy through the secret chakra up the spine to the crown and down again towards the sacred area. Hands should be at the abdomen. Visualise the strength and solidity and purification. If you want to make sound with it too – wonderful activate the intentions and be free with yourself let go of any stagnant or restrictive energy and feelings.
The second mudra combines the feminine with the masculine- the shiva linga mudra.
Shiva linga mudra is a Sanskrit term for a hand gesture that is a representation of the form of Shiva lingam worshiped in Hindu temples. Shiva is the Hindu god of destruction. Linga is derived from li, meaning “to dissolve,” and gam, meaning “to move on”; and mudra means “sign,” “energetic seal” or “gesture.”
This mudra increases heat in the body so this mudra is to be performed only for 15 minutes or less. But when there is congestion and cold you can continue this mudra for 30 minutes twice a day . Drink plenty of water and discontinue once any symptoms have been alleviated- and of course always talk to your doctor for any genuine health concerns- this practise is to complement not subvert professional medical advice. When in doubt contact your doctor first always.
Linga mudra is formed by interlocking the palms but keeping the left thumb erect pointing upward.
