The Hamsa Hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. For thousands of years, the open palm has been a mysterious symbol of fortune and protection against evil. Used in amulets and charms, it goes by many names--Hamsa, Hamesh, Hand of Fatima, Hand of Mary, Hand of Miriam. Connected to an ancient Middle Eastern goddess, the Hamsa also represents feminine energy and fertility. Whether facing up or down and regardless of its name, the open hand is a powerful defense against negative energy.
Hand Facing Down: When the Hamsa hand faces down, it opens you up to all of the abundance and goodness of the universe, welcoming them into your life. Hand facing down also brings fertility and answers to prayers and manifestations. Often, in this position, the fingers are closed together to bring good luck.
Hand Facing Up: When the Hamsa hand is facing up, it is a universal sign against evil. It is a powerful sign of protection and shields us from our inner thoughts of hatred, jealousy, and insecurities. Often, in this position, the fingers are spread apart to ward off evil.
