The creator, in his immense design, has forged hands and fingers with extraordinary richness. It is these hands that allow us to communicate, to express our tenderness through a caress, to protect our children and those most vulnerable.
The Powerful Spiritual Energy of the Hands in Prayer: Divine Connection and Healing
However, as with all powerful tools, they can be used to inflict harm underscoring the need to use them with love and respect.
The hands, beyond their physical functionality, embody a profound spiritual and energetic meaning. When we unite them in prayer, we align ourselves with a transcendental force.
Each hand is an intensely powerful Energy Center which channels a flow of renewing and healing energy into our being when intertwined with its pair. This act of union nourishes and harmonizes the states of our soul, mind and body, creating a continuous flow of grace.
We should pay special attention to the left hand, considered to be the “receiving” hand.
It is transformed into a Palmar Energy Center that attracts the higher vibrations to us. The heavenly energies that permeate it come from angelic spheres which have transmitted messages of enlightenment to saints and mystics over the eons.
The left hand maintains a symbiosis with the sun, an emblem of light and wisdom with the sizzling of creative ideas, protection and balance. It is the force that feeds the Solar Chakra, located at the height of the pit of the stomach, an epicenter of vital energy within us.
Therefore, when our hands are intertwined in prayer, it is not just an act of devotion; it is an act of receiving and giving, of connecting with the divine inside and outside of us, of remembering our unity with the divine light.
It is, in essence, an act of surrendering to the vast cosmos of energy and love that exists in each of us and around us, a cosmos that we can only truly perceive and honor when our hands, our hearts and our souls come together in prayer.
The Right Hand and Its Spiritual Role: Giving Love and Connecting with the Universe
The right hand, in its essence, is the “giving” hand. It becomes the Palmar Energy Center that radiates energy to the outside, a mirror of our capacity to share and give.
Being deeply rooted in terrestrial energies, it represents our connection to the physical world and earthly life but it also reflects our ability to transcend it through the act of giving.
This hand is intimately linked to the Moon, the ethereal beacon of the night that symbolizes intuition and mystery.
Just as the moon affects the tides of our oceans, the right hand can influence the tides of our inner life, helping us to navigate the sometimes turbulent sea of our emotions and perceptions.
The right hand is a path of detachment, a representation of our potential to free ourselves from material attachments and focus on the generosity of the spirit. It embodies love, in its purest and most selfless form.
It is not a love that seeks to receive but a love that seeks to give without expectations, radiating compassion and kindness around us.
This hand nourishes and balances the Heart Chakra, located at the height of the heart. This chakra is the core of our emotions and feelings and the right hand, being the giving hand, has the capacity to release the energy of love and compassion from this chakra into the universe.
Therefore, our two hands, in their glorious duality, personify a cycle of giving and receiving that is fundamental to our spiritual existence. The left hand receives the light and wisdom of the universe, while the right hand gives love and compassion to the world.
Together, our hands become a bridge between the divine and the earthly, between ourselves and the infinite cosmos. They are a constant reminder of our capacity to give and receive love and of the wonderful connection we share with the universe.
The Symbology of Fingers in Prayer: Channeling Energy and Connecting with the Universe
Our fingers, like extensions of our hands, channel and amplify the energies of the Palmares Energy Centers. Every fingertip carries with it a special meaning and power:
- On the left hand, we find the thumb representing strength, the index finger symbolizing wisdom, the big finger embodying love, the ring finger personifying truth, and the little finger representing the will.
- On the right hand, the thumb symbolizes strength, the index finger symbolizes intelligence, the big finger the feeling, the annulment of loyalty and the little finger, action.
When the hands join together in prayer, these ten Tactile Centers and the two Palmar Centers converge, forming a sum that results in the mystical number twelve. This number, so essential to the cosmogony of many spiritual traditions, expresses a powerful energy of enlightenment and transformation.
- There are twelve hours of day and night, marking the cycle of the sun and the moon, light and dark, wakefulness and sleep.
- There were twelve tribes in Israel, symbolizing diversity and unity within the community.
- Twelve were the Tables of the Law, representing the moral and divine order.
- Twelve were the apostles, the closest disciples of Jesus, each with their own unique character and gifts.
- And finally, there are twelve signs of the Zodiac which govern the heavens and are reflected in the multiplicity of the human personality.
Therefore, by joining hands in prayer, we are not only connecting with our inner being and with the divine but also resonating with the symphony of the entire universe.
In this humble but powerful act, we invoke the energy of everything that surrounds us, allowing the energies of giving and receiving, of the moon and the sun, of truth and love, to flow through us and enlighten us on our spiritual path.
The Art and Power of Prayer: Channeling Divine Energy and Strengthening Spiritual Connection
When we pray with our hands together and our thumbs placed on the Heart Chakra Center, in the center of our chest, we celebrate a powerful alliance of love, strength and enlightenment.
This symbolic act allows divine energy to flow into our mind and soul, purifying and strengthening us on our spiritual path.
This way of praying with hands clasped together or thumbs resting on the center of the chest, reminds us that our requests must emanate from the Heart Center, that is with full faith and anticipated gratitude for the blessings we hope to receive.
In this pose, our hands become a reflection of our inner devotion and a channel for spiritual energy. However, our requests may not always be manifested in reality. This can be due to several factors:
- Perhaps our requests were not made from a sincere and faith-filled heart.
- Maybe we are not yet ready to receive what we have ordered.
- Or, simply, it is not our destiny to receive what we have requested.
But regardless of whether our requests are fulfilled or not, the act of praying in itself has immense value and power.
By raising a prayer, our essence is illuminated, transforming us into beings of luminous love. We connect to a state of peace, prosperity and joy that transcends the circumstances of our daily lives.
Prayer allows us to connect with a higher force and, through that connection, to find the peace and strength to face any situation that life may present to us.
In this way, prayer becomes not only a request for blessings but also a source of inner strength and connection with the divine which allows us to navigate with grace and courage through the sometimes stormy sea of human existence.
