(Matangi—god of inner harmony and royal rulership) Fold your hands in front of your solar plexus (stomach area), point both middle fingers and place against each other.
Direct your attention to the breath in the solar plexus or stomach area. Do as needed, or three times a day for 4 minutes.This mudra strengthens the breath-ing impulse in the solar plexus and bal-ances the energies in this area. It stimu-lates the wood element, which represents new beginnings, and the earth element, which gives life its depth. The heart,
stomach, liver, duodenum, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys profit from the Matangi Mudra. An excited heart becomes noticeably more calm, and inner tension (such as diverse spasms or sensations of fullness) that hamper digestion are resolved. According to Kim da Silva, this mudra also relieves vague pain and tension in the jaw.
HERBAL REMEDY: Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia Miller) and ver-bena (Verbena officinalis) are herbs of repose and harmony.
Green and yellow are the colors of the solar plexus; Yellow lightens our mood and stimulates the mind. Green is the color of harmony. Each of us
needs an inner place (a retreat) where we can go to be safe. We can create

this place inside ourselves. If we can get there without using any physical
means of transportation, we also don’t pollute our environment and can
really save time.
Imagine a yellow desert in which you create a beautiful green oasis, a
place of harmony and joy. This is your personal retreat, and you form
it completely according to your own preferences and needs. Here you
find yourself again. You become calm and still, and your soul attains
Rest, silence, and peace fill me completely.
