Mudras are hand positions that guide energy flow and reflexes to the brain. There are 72,000 meridian points in our hands that are directly connected to the brain. In the Sufi tradition, there are 72,000 veils between us and the Most High. Each area in the hand connects to a certain part of the body or brain representing different emotions and behaviors. Each finger relates to a planetary energy and quality each planet represents: 

Thumb=The ego, or persona, of the individual.
Middle= Saturn=Patience “The Task Master”
Ring= Sun=Vitality
Pinky= Mercury=Communication

When they are stimulated by being pressed up against each other, it alters thought patterns and direct energies to burn karma and heal our subconscious mind.
