At the beginning of next week (exactly night of January 12 / 13) we will have the first New Moon of 2021. This New Moon will be in the zodiac sign of Capricorn. It’s a great time to set goals and to create plans for building upon in the future.
So our first Yin & Yang Inspiration Spread of the new year 2021 is dedicated to our first New Moon.
The Yin side is in a process of transformation. In the past, they have compromised and withdrawn. They want to free themselves from these old burdens. They know that constantly worrying about things isn’t making it better. With full curiosity, creativity and a new approach they now set out for a new start.
The Yang Side has so far sticked to the known, this promised them security. However, they realized that they want to live an extraordinary life instead, a life that does not correspond to the standards. They have already started changes in their lifes, but are impatient because success isn’t already there. They focus on the losses that they had to accept because of these changes. Currently, they are looking into the No-Thingness and do not know whether the decisions they have made were the right ones and will lead to success.
For a short meditation session I chose following mudras for the Yin and the Yang Side:
For the Yin Side I chose a Mudra on the topic Transformation and for the Solarplexus Chakra.
For the Yang Side I chose a Mudra on the topic of Fluidity, the flow of Life and for the Sacral Chakra.
Sit down in a comfortable meditation position. It is important that you can sit comfortably for several minutes, so don’t force yourself into a position that is uncomfortable for you. Vajrasana or Sukhasana is a good seating position, but you can also meditate on a chair.
Now bring your shoulders back and rest your arms comfortably, for example on your thighs. Lower your chin. Breathe in and out. Focus on your breath and how your belly is rising up and down while your are breathing. After a few cycles form your hands into the according mudra:
Yin: Interlace your fingers of both hands with the right thumb over the left thumb. Extend your middle fingers straight out, with the pads touching. Rest your hands on the height of the Solarplexus, just where your ribs meet.
Yang: Place the right palm over the back of the right hand, both hands are facing downwards. Extend your thumbs out to the side, the other fingers are stacked. Hold your hands with the thumbs extending away from your belly.
Now close your eyes.
Breathe in and out. Focus on your breath and how your belly is rising up and down while your are breathing.
Can you feel how your breath is coming in and out of your nostrils? Focus on the sensations that you can feel. Maybe you feel cold and warm air coming in and out of your nostrils.
Focus now on the according Mantra:
Inner light illuminates and guides me on the path.Yin Side
Gentle waves of ease flow through my mind and body.Yang Side
Can you feel how your breath is becoming slower and slower and also finer and finer? Can you feel how the breath is strengthening your body? And how your muscles are relaxing?
Come back into your room and feel your presence.
Slowly open your eyes again.
