Hamsa Hand Evil Eye Necklace
A quasi-universal symbol of protection, the evil eye is referred to as μάτι (mati) in Greek. The concept and the significance of the evil eye is especially prominent in the Mediterranean and West Asia.
The evil eye is a “look” or “stare” that is believed to bring bad luck for the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislike. The perception of the nature of the phenomenon, its causes, and possible protective measures, varies between tribes and cultures. The evil eye is a talisman that is meant to protect you from these evil spirits.
An evil eye is a talisman or amulet, designed in the shape of an eye, traditionally in the colors blue or green, that indicate spiritual protection. These talismans or evil eye “repellents” come in different shapes and forms as jewellery, clothing, home decor etc. The most common talisman is hanging a glass bead form over the main door or entrance of someone’s home to keep the hearth protected.
Hamsa Hand Symbolism
The Hamsa hand has various meanings throughout the many cultures and religions in which it is represented. Its most universal symbol is that of unity and protection, and in every representation, the Hamsa hand is a means of protection from evil.
The talisman brings good fortune and wards off evil, depending on how you wear it. If the hand is facing downwards, the owner is open to the universe’s goodness and welcoming in good fortune and prosperity. A hand facing up (generally with an eye) wards off the evil eye and protects the wearer from bad luck.
Although the Hamsa hand is known to bring fortune and fertility in some religions and cultures, its primary spiritual meaning is protection against the evil eye.
These necklaces are perfect to wear when you feel you need that little extra protection from negative energies.
These also make a great gift!
