With each hand: Place the thumb, middle finger, and ring finger together—extend the other fingers. When needed, do for 5 to 45 minutes or use three times a day for 15 minutes as a course of treatment. This mudra supports the removal of waste materials and toxins from the body, as well as eliminating urinary problems, according to Keshav Dev. The Apan Mudra also stimulates the wood element, which is associ-ated with the energy of the liver and gallbladder (see Appendix C). This element also contains the power and pleasure of springtime, of new begin-nings, of tackling and shaping visions of the future. In addition, the Apan Mudra has a balancing effect on the mind,
which is largely dependent upon a well-functioning liver. It gives us patience, serenity, confidence, inner balance, and harmony. In the mental realm, it creates the ability to develop vision. You need all of this when you look into the future, while facing new challenges, and if your wishes are to be fulfilled.
HERBAL REMEDY: TWO wonder remedies for the liver and gallbladder
are milk thistle (Silybum marianum) and dandelion (Taraxacum officinale).T H E

In your imagination, sit in a beautiful, richly blossoming garden. You
enjoy the various colors and forms of the plants. You observe the great
mystery of nature—how a seed germinates, how a plant grows and
blooms. Now, in an empty bed, plant something that should bear rich
fruits for you: a conversation, a relationship, a project, etc. Imagine
how it sprouts, continues to develop, blossoms, and bears rich fruit.
Who should benefit from these fruits? End this image with a big
1 plant my seeds, care for them, and receive a rich harvest—
with God’s help—that I thankfully accept.
