Have you ever seen a human hand with a central eye motif on jewelry, hangings, or t-shirts?
That’s Hamsa which means ‘Five’.
People who love to wear meaningful symbols would know it.
This palm-shaped amulet is said to protect you from the evil eye and bring you all the luck and abundance from the universe. It is often called the 'Hand of God'.
Particularly in Jewish culture, Hamsa is of colossal importance and even has religious significance. In fact, it is very popular throughout the Middle East and North America. People there put Hamsa symbols at the entrance of their homes, in their cars, or wear Hamsa jewelry.
There are two ways in which Hamsa can be displayed. Both have their own meanings, and based on what spiritual meaning holds more importance in your life, you can choose it accordingly.
Hand facing down:
This is also known as the Varada Mudra, and three fingers are closed together in this Mudra. It is said to bring all the positivity of the universe along with abundance, fertility, and manifestations. So, if you have been waiting for your prayers to be heard, you can try the hand facing down Hamsa.
Hand facing up:
Also known as the Abhaya Mudra, the hand facing up is used to ward off the evil from your life. It guards you against all the negativity in your environment and any kind of negative emotion in your head, like jealousy or hatred.
You do not have to worry about the religious consequences of wearing Hamsa because people from all faiths interpret different meanings for it. But all these meanings come down to positivity and protection.
