The Flower of Life

The Flower of Life is the modern name given to a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. They are arranged to form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry.  The most common form of the “Flower of Life” is hexagonal pattern (where the center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter), made up of 19 complete circles and 36 partial circular arcs, enclosed by a large circle.

It is considered by some to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. In this sense, it is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all sentient beings, and it is believed to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things.

The “Flower of Life” can be found in all major religions of the world. It contains the patterns of creation as they emerged from the “Great Void”. Everything is made from the Creator’s thought.

 

The Hamsa Hand

The Hamsa Hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a protective sign. It's said to bring its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune.

The hamsa hand meaning has a variety of interpretations, depending on the culture.  The word, “hamsa,” derives its name from the five fingers on the hand. In Hebrew, the number five is “hamesh” and the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is “Hey,” one of God’s holy names. “Hamesh” is representative of the five books of the Torah. 

In Arabic, it is “khamesh.” In the Sunni culture, the hamsa is associated with the Five Pillars of Islam.  For the Shi’tes, it symbolizes the Five People of the Cloak.  In the Islamic faith, it symbolizes as The Hand of Fatima, the daughter of the Prophet Mohammed.

The hamsa hand has two main styles.  One style is shaped like a regular hand, and the other has two symmetrical thumbs. 

The hamsa hand sometimes includes an evil eye symbol, which is thought to protect against the evil eye.  It is often worn as a pendant on a necklace but also is found on key chains, house decorations, baby carriages, and other jewelry items.

 

The Evil Eye

The Evil Eye is one of the strongest symbolic images in the world dating back almost 3,000 years to ancient Greece and Rome. The evil eye meaning has symbolism in almost every country in the world and in every religion, such as Judaism, Islam, Hindu, Buddhism, and Christianity.

The evil eye is a "Luck Charm" believed to "reflect evil"… and thereby protects a person or an object against misfortune. The evil eye is a shield that guards against various forms of bad luck that is willed onto you or an object by others.

The superstition states that when a person wears or carries an evil eye with them, it guards against misfortune and from bad things happening in one's life. It helps to keep your life in balance, protects you from "bad karma" and ill-will that could otherwise have a negative effect on your well-being or your life in general.
