New Listing - Finally!

After much delay, I have finally added come new items to my shop! A couple of photographs with more to come. A custom listing and this set you see above!

I've been quite taken with the Hamsa Hands. Even tho there is alot of information on them out there on the world wide web I still feel like they are quite a mystery. I know they are a part of many old cultures but I can't seem to get feeling that The Eye of Horas from Egypt and the Hamsa Healing Hands are somehow connected. I may very well be completely off base here. As a Reiki practitioner I also feel the significance of Universal Life Force Energy within them.

In Arabic the word Hamsa means five, referring to the five fingers on the hand.

You will see some with a eye in the center. This eye is intended to look back at evil eyes and provide protection from jealousy and envy. In India the eye is more important then the hands themselves and is considered the Compassionate Eye or the Eye of God.

You will also often see it as the spiral (as above!). The Sacred Spiral has been around for many many ancient years.

Symbolism of the SPIRAL: Linked to the circle. Ancient symbol of the goddess, the womb, fertility, feminine serpent force, continual change, and the evolution of the universe.

When the Spiral is drawn clockwise, it's said to bring things towards you, and when drawn anti-clockwise, it pushes negative energies away from you. The Spirals with my Hands will go either/both ways. Wearing the pendant one way will draw the Spiral clockwise while wearing the pendant the other way will draw the Spiral counter-clockwise!

Well, that's about it for now.

Spread the Love folks!
