So it is often seen both Hamsa Hand facing Up and facing down. Which one is right. The easy answer they both are.
It is said that when the Hamsa hand faces down it is often interpreted as a gesture of welcoming into your life an abundance of goodness, kindness, friendship, of all that the universe has to offer. It is also thought when the hand is facing down it also blesses one with fertility and answers prayers and manifestations. This is the most common way you will see the hand, with the fingers pointing down
It is thought that when the Hamsa hand is facing up, it is a universal sign to ward against evil. It is a powerful sign of protection and shields us from our and other people’s inner thoughts of hatred, jealousy, and insecurities.
The Arabic word for Hamsa, Khamsah, means "five", but also "the five fingers of the hand".
