The Hamsa means five: a number associated with the Evil Eye, the five pillars of Islam, and of course, the five fingers on the symbolic hand itself. Providing protection from the Evil Eye, this symbol is especially popular amongst both sides of my family, being Middle Eastern and Jewish.

The word “Hamsa” means “five,” representing the fingers of the right hand. For Hindus and Buddhists, it symbolizes chakras, energy flow in the body, the five senses, and the mudras that affect them.

Each finger connects to an element and chakra:

Thumb- Fire element, solar plexus chakra.

Forefinger- Air element, the heart chakra.

Middle Finger- Ethereal elements, the throat chakra.

Ring Finger- Earth element, root chakra.

Pinky Finger- Water element, sacral chakra.

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.

May your Hamsa Hand bring you love, light, luck, and protection. 

Let No sadness come to this heart,

Let no trouble come to these arms,

Let No conflict come to these eyes,

Let my soul be filled with the blessing of joy and peace-DSV
