Chin mudra is the inverse of Jnana mudra. I often use Chin mudra while connecting with my inner world. I find that turning my palms down tones down the thought process and opens up my sense of intuition.
This is the surrender to consciousness. Understanding that I am, sometimes, the one in the way of understanding my present circumstances.
Chin mudra is a great mudra addition to the Infinity Breath Meditation practice.
A calm way to be present and accept what is. If you often have your palms up during meditation, try turning them down and notice the shift in your thoughts and energy.
