The Hamsa Hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths, it is a protective sign which brings the owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. The Hamsa hand has a wide variety of different spellings which includes Hamesh, Hamsa, Chamsa, and Khamsa. The words hamsa and Hamesh mean "five" and refer to the digits on the hand. Depending on who you ask, the Hamsa may mean different things. But its symbology means very different things to Hindus and Buddhists. For Hindus and Buddhists, it symbolizes the interplay of the chakras, the energy flow in the body, the five senses, and the mudras that affect them.
Each finger has its own energy:
These energies can be combined to change the flow of energy in the body and heal psychological and physical ailments. In Buddhism, it symbolizes the chakras to a less extent, but the mudras are still important nonetheless. Often times, the Hamsa is used to ward off what’s known as “the evil eye”. The evil eye is considered to be the sum of destructive energies that come from negative emotions in the world. This is why it’s often used on walls or jewelry!
