Encircle the your thumb with the four fingers of your right hand. At the same time, touch the right thumb to the extended middle finger of your left hand. Together, the two hands look like a conch shell. Hold your hands in front of your sternum. Do this as often and as long as you want. Or use it three times daily for 15 minutes as a course of treatment. When you want to practice this mudra, you can first sing “OM” several times. Then listen within yourself, to the silence, for several minutes afterward.
This mudra is used during rituals in many Hindu temples. There, the conch horn is blown in the morning to announce the opening of the temple doors. The same applies to our inner temple, in which the divine light shines—it should also be opened. The Shell Mudra drives away every kind of problem in the throat. If
you practice it regularly, especially if you sing “OM” as you do it, you can improve your voice. It also has a very calming effect and leads to collection in silence.
If you have throat problems, it helps to gargle with sage tea that has a few drops of lemon juice and some honey added to it.

First let yourself be brought into collected repose through the mudra
2nd by singing OM. See your hands as a seashell and the encircled
rhumb as the pearl within it. Your left thumb becomes the symbol of
the higher self, with which you connect yourself in love, and which
lets you receive all the help you require, or which gives you confidence
and a sense of security—simply everything you need.
/ use thoughts and words of strength and love, and everything
that I think and speak comes back to me.
