Power at your fingertips

An amazing thing happened before my eyes yesterday.

My husband suffers from asthma occasionally. Yesterday due to some unknown reason (I suspect the unavoidable by-product of Indian cooking - the strong smell of masalas) my husband started wheezing. He was so uncomfortable that he had to even try breathing through this mouth. Having seen and not recognised an asthma attack once before, I panicked.

Thankfully I remembered some quick fixes that I had read about before and in 10 minutes, my husband was smiling! All he did was practice these mudras (Bronchial mudra and Asthma mudra) for 5 minutes each.

Today, I am amazed at the power of mudras and our little fingertips.
