Wooden Hamsa Hand Grid Bases for Protection & Healing
This wooden crystal grid base features the the Om symbol laser etched into a birch, Hamsa-shaped board.
Crystal grids are special arrangements of healing stones, used with intention, to manifest a desired result. The properties of the stones used, combined with their arrangement in a sacred geometric configuration, creates a unique energy frequency that can be used to enhance your intention and ability to manifest.
Using crystal grids is very powerful as it combines the energy of the stone with Sacred Geometry (the language of the Universe). In this way, the crystal energy is enhanced exponentially because your intention is being amplified through the stones and then sent out to the Universe in a clear and direct way through the sacred geometric formations.
The hamsa is an ancient protective amulet that originated in Northern Africa. Hamsa means five in Arabic, referring to the five fingers of the human hand. The amulet is also known as the Hand of Fatima, named for the daughter of the prophet Muhammad. A folk story about the origin of this name says that Fatima was cooking soup one day when her husband came home with a new wife. She was so startled, she dropped her spoon, but continued stirring the hot soup with her bare hand without getting burned. Since God protected her hand, that hand took on the power to protect others from harm.
The hamsa is part of Jewish tradition as well, where it may be known also as the Hand of Miriam. It has also been associated with Venus, and with Mary the mother of Jesus. The symbol has always offered special protection and luck to women, used by brides, those hoping to conceive, and as a charm that mothers use to protect their children.
Since a mixture of religious significances are attached to the hamsa, it has recently become a symbol of peace, hope, and of mutual understanding, for the world.
Om is the most sacred mantra, which is regarded as the primal sound in the birth of the cosmos. Its symbol is "Om," but the actual mystic sound heard in the deep meditative state is A-U-M, which appears to correspond to the three elements that sprang up out of creation: Spirit-mind-body. A stands for the initial surge of emanation; U for preserving or nurturing it; and M for absorption, not dissolution. It also stands for Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva, the Hindu trinity.
When articulated or chanted, it is cleansing or purifying, and activates certain latent forces in the human body, and helps transcend worldly problems. Hence, as the holiest of all mantras, OM must precede all other mantras, otherwise the latter would not have the presence of divine power or force. To make any work successful, the OM mantra must be invoked before the work is started.
It is regarded to exist before and after creation. It is imperishable and therefore the symbol of the Infinite. It resides and is present in silence, and represents the entire manifested and unmanifested world.
