Hamsa is a symbol of good luck and protection. People who wear hamsa are believed to be protected from ill intent. When facing down, hamsa is said to invite good luck, fertility, and abundance in one's life. Hamsa facing down is also called the Varada Mudra, and is also believed to invite answers to prayers and manifestations. Hamsa was first used in ancient Mesopotamia as a protective amulet. In Jewish culture, hamsa is known as the Hand of Miriam, sister of Moses, and is believed to bring good luck. Hamsa also means five in Hebrew and this is said to symbolize the five books of Torah. In Islamic culture, hamsa is called the Hand of Fatima, who is Prophet Muhammad's daughter and is believed to bring good luck as well. The five fingers of the hamsa symbolize the five pillars of Islam.
In Hinduism, the hamsa represents the chakras and their mudras (hand gestures) that direct the flow of energy and the five senses. It is believed that wearing the hamsa helps heal mental and physical problems by helping energy flow into the chakras. The thumb is for fire element and solar plexus chakra, forefinger for air and heart, middle finger for ethereal elements and throat, ring finger for earth and root and pinky for water and sacral chakra.
The Evil Eye bead is a prominent symbol in Turkish and many other cultures, and is highly protective. Evil Eye is also called nazar. Evil Eye beads reflect ill intent and jealousy from the 'evil eye' back to the person thinking of it, hence protecting the wearer. They also bring good luck and are often found hanging in houses, workplaces and cars. They're also often given as a gift to loved ones. The earliest known evidence of evil eye beads goes back to ancient Greece and Rome, where it was believed that evil eye would hurt people who were praised too much. Philosophers like Plato and Hesiod warned against the dangers of the evil eye.
Ancient Egyptians also believed in the evil eye, and would paint the Eye of Horus on their belongings to protect themselves from the evil eye. Egyptian sailors also painted eyes on their ships to protect themselves during their voyages.
