This mudra is from the card set by Gertrud Hirschi – a wonderful gift for a loved one (or even yourself).
Mudras redirect the energy lines which flow around, through and outwards from our body. By placing the fingers (and sometimes other body parts) in different ways we send the energy to parts that we feel need it. With the friendship mudra the thumbs tips are connected over to the base of the little fingers, ring finger and middle finger are curled on top of the thumbs and the forefinger tips connect with the little fingers hooked together.
This shaping redirects the energy lines to the heart, lungs and kidneys.
Gertrud says –
‘Good friendships make life pleasanter, more enjoyable – and longer. There are the spice of one’s life. With this mudra you not only do your friends good, but also yourself, because everything with you send out with it comes back to your own benefit. In your imagination you send your friends and family a loving and cheering smile. Wait and see how the recipients return the gesture!’
May a thousand hands carry you,
A thousand kisses touch you,
A thousand hearts reach out to you,
And millions of stars shine upon you.
