On to the post before I start getting emosh, rambling on about how overwhelmed and grateful I am aha;
I totally forgot I had even ordered this, but today I received a Hamsa bracelet. You might of seen many celebrities wearing them, like Nicole Richie, Lauren Conrad, Maddona, Alessandra Amborsio, Ashton Kutcher.
They do come in many designs but I have the satin red lace with the gold Hamsa hand on.
Red Hamsa with gold handExcuse my nails, I'm having an awful time with them at the moment !
So this bracelet.. It is believed to protect the wearer from evil eyes. There is a belief that these eyes can cast curses which bring back luck, misfortune and injuries. They say the most common form of this is through envy. It is also linked to the Kabbalah bracelets which I've seen Ashton Kutcher, Madonna and Paris Hilton wear, which is the red string on the left hand - Red symbolising warning off evil. So this bracelet is believed to bring good luck, prosperity and protect against maliciousness,evilness and nasty people.
Some people may believe it is a money making gimic, but the spirituality behind all of this has been derived from thousands of years ago - even before religions were involved.
You don't have to believe you are protected, but it definitely is a nice thought when you look down at your wrist and see a beautiful glowing red bracelet.
