Mudras and music... why not?
Hints from Yoga to be used by music-lovers and musicians:
Among other things, the planets are also associated with the days of the week.
Monday: Moon: The quality is emotional
Tuesday: Mars: The quality is energetic, combative
Wednesday: Mercury: The quality is business, communication
Thursday: Jupiter: The quality is expansion and deep thought
Friday: Venus: The quality is love, sensuality
Saturday: Saturn: The quality is Karma, constriction, discipline
Sunday: Sun :The quality is purity, energy of the self.
... and about "mudras":
Mudras are described as hand positions. Each area of the hand has a reflex reaction in a specific part of the brain. A Mudra locks and guides energy flow and reflexes to the brain.
Together with the Bhandas, Mudras redirect the energy flow, linking the individual pranic energy with universal force.
Each finger represents the energy of a planet, a determinate quality, and emotions. The thumbs represents the ego
Have a look here for better understanding: hands and fingers positions are a powerful, yet easy way to manage energies and mind attention and attitude.
Try it when having (or wishing to have) a deep, attentive listening to your favourite music... at first you'll feel yourself VERY silly, then... oh, ohh?!?!
