The Hamsa Hand, or Hand of Miriam, is considered to be effective in warding off the influence of envious gazing. It is believed that the one who has it will receive protection from the EVIL EYE and it will create positive energy, happiness, prosperity and good health. The Hamsa (root means "five") symbolizes the Creators protective hand. This amulet is an ancient symbol of an opened hand with a palm and five outstretched fingers. The hamsa or "protecting hand" is believed to be a way of averting and getting protection from the evil eye, or in general, as a way of summoning assistance from the "Hand of G-d". It is believed that the envious glare of onlookers, even without any ill intentions, can cause divine repercussions. it could be considered helpful to wear or display such an amulet from a totally practical point of view - simply to consistently remind oneself of our own fragility and weaknesses, and to help us reflect this realization in our day to day thoughts, speech and actions.
