Healing Hands

This is a transparent green plate with two stacked dichroic chamsahs. Chamsah is an arabic word meaning 5. These are typically seen as amulets with healing powers......and also used to ward off the evil eye!

They are also known as "The Hand of Fatimah" by Muslims, "The Hand of Miriam" by Jews, and the Hand of Miriam, by Christians. 

I love that we share something..even if it is an amulet- and the idea that we perhaps if we can extend our hands to each other in peace, perhaps our real healing can begin.  Reach out and hold the hands of others and discover how nourishing that can be!
