Hamsa Evil Eye Protection Bracelet - The Hamsa has different meanings to different groups of people. However, the common thread is that it is a protective symbol that brings in luck, health, happiness, & good fortune by warding off evil & negative feelings.
In many cultures, even today, there is a prevailing superstition that if a person with evil thoughts in their hearts gazes at you, their ‘evil eye’ can cause bad things to happen. So, by wearing a Hamsa, you intercept that negativity & it does not cause you harm.
The two main styles that the Hamsa comes in are with the hand either up or down.
If the hand faces upwards, it is a sign against evil. It is representative of protection & repels the negativity of others & protects you from your own negative thoughts, such as envy, hatred, & greed. The fingers may be spread apart to repel evil.
If the hand faces downwards, the Hamsa represents abundance & goodness. It becomes a welcoming sign that invites good things into your life. In this position, the fingers are generally close together, as a sign of invitation for good luck.
