Milagros Spirit Icons-Hands


Here are two pictures in the periodic posting of my Milagros Spirit Icons series. These two Milagros Spirit Icons represent the hands and/or arm. The hand/arm Milagros represents our connection to others. Our hands are the way we relate to the world; we reach out to others and others return our touch.

The hand/arm Milagros also represents labor; that which we use to complete our work; and are the instruments through which our creativity flows-through art, music, writing. Finally, the hand Milagros can represent healing through touch/massage, energy/Reiki, and prayer.

Look at your hands and think of all the ways you use them throughout the day. Your hands are one of your connections to the world.

  1. Amy, I just love the expressions on your Hand Milagro Spirit dolls faces. They look like they want to either tell a story or listen to someone’s story. So real, so heartfelt. They’re wonderful!
    Our hands are so important to our way of being in the world and our lives, especially if you use them in your work, as you said. Great info on the milagros symbolism.

  2. Thanks Karen. I’m learning a great deal about Milagros with this series. And it is always interesting to learn how other cultures use symbolism.
