The Meaning of Hamsa Hands: 

The Hamsa symbol is one of the most recognizable talismans in the world.

There is a rich and vital history to the Hamsa hand meaning, spanning across centuries and cultures. The sign of the Hamsa was first seen in ancient Mesopotamia, long before any organized religion. It was initially worn as an amulet to ward off evil. Even as societies have grown and changed over time, one constant has been the human desire for positivity and safety from evil.

It predates many formal religions, the image of the Hamsa hand has a place in almost every prominent religion. It remains a symbol of protection and hope for many. 

The talisman brings good fortune and wards off evil, depending on how you wear it. If the hand is facing downwards, the owner is open to the universe's goodness and welcoming in good fortune and prosperity. A hand facing up (generally with an eye) wards off the evil eye and protects the wearer from bad luck. 

In Buddhism and Hinduism, the five fingers of the Hamsa hand represent each of the five chakras, which align with the five senses to clear the mind and body. These chakras are the sacral chakra, the throat chakra, the root chakra, the solar plexus chakra, and the heart chakra.

In Jewish culture, the Hamsa hand represents protection from evil and a reminder to pray. Five is a significant number in Judaism and is considered the number of protection.

The five fingers of the Hamsa represent both the five holy books in the Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and Numbers) and a reminder to praise God with all five senses. The Hamsa talisman is worn similarly to the Buddhist and Hindu way - generally as jewelry.

In Christianity, the Hamsa has had a varied history. Some Christians accept the use of the talisman, seeing it as representative of "the hand of Mother Mary" and a symbol of Mary's high place of honor. The Hamsa hand can be used to invoke her protection. 

If you are spiritually comfortable with the Hamsa and aware of its rich history, you are more than welcome to join in the practice of protection and good fortune. A Hamsa is a symbol of security and unity, and this essence is universal.
