Demystifying the Hand of Hamsa

Demystifying the Hand of Hamsa

One of the most-loved spiritual protection charms, and for good reason, the Hand of Hamsa is a universal sign of protection, power and strength, believed to protect against negative energies. 

What is the meaning of the Hand of Hamsa? 

The word “Hamsa” means “five,” representing the fingers of the right hand. Some cultures believe that each one relates to a different element and chakra. 

Legend has it that wearing this iconic symbol is believed to bring about good fortune and happiness, and to help you feel a sense of protection and spiritual connection.

How to wear the Hand of Hamsa? Should it face up or down? 

The Hand of Hamsa is powerful however you wear it, although it is believed that when the Hamsa hand faces down, it can open you up to the abundance and goodness of the universe. In this position, it is also thought to bring fertility and answers to prayers and manifestations. 

When the Hand of Hamsa is facing up, it is a universal sign against evil. It is a powerful symbol of protection, and shields us from our inner thoughts of hatred, jealousy and insecurities.

At Alemdara, all of our Necklaces and Earrings featuring this magical sign show it facing down. With our bracelets, you can choose to wear the hand up or down depending on your needs and wishes. 

Can you wear a Hand of Hamsa and Evil Eye together? 

Both the Evil Eye and the Hand of Hamsa amulet have protection powers, particularly in regards to warding off negativity and destructive glances. However, they both have unique qualities too. Because of this, people often wear them together to experience and enjoy the magic of both.
