ASTROLOGICAL HAMSA HAND BACKFLOW INCENSE BURNER
These are so relaxing to watch the smoke cascading downwards & look simply.
How does backflow incense work?
The smoke cascades downwards because the backflow incense cones have a hole through the middle and the burner has a reservoir for the smoke to flow through. The special backflow incense cones create a thicker and heavier smoke than regular incense smoke does. This is why the smoke flows downward instead of up like regular incense.
The Hamsa Hand or Hand of Fatima is an ancient Middle Eastern talisman. In all religions it is a protective symbol. It is a talismanic symbol that people believed to protect them from harm against the evil eye and bring them goodness, abundance, fertility, luck, and good health.
The word “Hamsa” means “five,” representing the fingers of the right hand. For Hindus and Buddhists, it symbolizes chakras, energy flow in the body, the five senses and the mudras that effect them.
Each finger connects to an element and chakra:
Thumb- Fire element, solar plexus chakra.
Forefinger- Air element, heart chakra.
Middle Finger- Ethereal elements, throat chakra.
Ring Finger- Earth element, root chakra.
Pinky Finger- Water element, sacral chakra.
There are two ways to display your Hamsa:
Hand Facing Down or Varada Mudra
When the Hamsa hand faces down, it opens you up to all of the abundance and goodness of the universe, welcoming them into your life. Hand facing down also brings fertility and answers to prayers and manifestations. Often, in this position, the fingers are closed together to bring good luck.
Hand Facing Up or Abhaya Mudra
When the Hamsa hand is facing up, it is a universal sign against evil. It is a powerful sign of protection, and shields us from our inner thoughts of hatred, jealousy and insecurities. Often, in this position, the fingers are spread apart to ward off evil.
May your Hamsa Hand bring you love, light, luck and protection.
