Spiritual meaning of the five fingers: Palmistry and Dream

For many people, the number 5 is considered a perfect number, aside from 7. We have five senses – the sense of sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch to explore and experience the world. Alphabets come in 5 vowels, and the game basketball has five positions.

In numerology, the number 5 signifies freedom, curiosity, and transformation. Moreover, it represents more than just high energy and excitement.

In astronomy, there are five distinct positions in space where a small mass can rotate in a consistent pattern generated from the gravitational pull of two larger masses, such as the sun and the Earth. These five unique positions are called Lagrange points.

The interaction between these forces makes a point of equilibrium where a spacecraft can carry on.

And of course, most mammals, reptiles, and amphibians have five fingers or toes on each extremity. So, what do the five fingers symbolize?

The human hand has five fingers. The little finger represents the physical body, the ring finger is for the mind, the middle finger is for the intellect, the index finger is for the individual self, and the thumb finger represents the universal self.

Here’s what each finger means:

The little finger represents the physical body. Your physical body came from your physical parents.

The physical body is the minor part of the entire self, so the little finger represents it. Remember when you were a kid, you called the attention of your teacher by raising your little finger to signify a nature call.

The ring finger is for the mind. When two hearts and two minds meet, they vibrate and share the same frequency; therefore, marriage and rings are exchanged on the ring finger.

Not any other finger, but the ring finger. Keep in mind that the second finger is more significant than the little finger, and it represents the mind, an essential aspect of the human body.

The mind or the brain is above all else, which means it can control the human body. 

The middle finger represents intellectual ability. A person’s intellect can differentiate the good and the bad, the truth and the untruth, the right and the wrong, the beautiful and the ugly.

Since the mind is the one that judges the situation, the intellect is less judgemental and far judgemental. The intellect sums up the entire experiences of the soul.

The index finger is the individual self. When you call someone, you use mainly the index finger, not the middle finger, not the ring finger, but only the index finger.

You are not your body; you are not your mind; you are not your intellect; you are you, you are yourself – the Atma.

The Atma is what you are, and it is nothing but an eternal speak of consciousness and energy. The individual self is also called the Jeevatma.

Lastly, the thumb finger represents the universal self. The individual self came from the universal self. People have different physical bodies, thinking, and intellect.

But we have the same ATMIC source, and we have all the same level of ATMA.

The source parent self of the infinite number of individuals is called the universal self. Meanwhile, the source parent self is called BRAHMATMA.

What each finger represents?

In palmistry, each finger represents a specific aspect of your personality. The term finger means any four digits besides the thumb or any digit, including the thumb.

The control of the thumb makes a considerable part of the brain, which means that the thumb is vital to our personality. It has something to do with the self-control and willpower of the individual.

For example, a woman with a long thumb can control her environment and decide for her life compared to the rest of her hand. However, if her thumb is short, her environment will control her, feeling overwhelmed.

Since we have two thumb phalanges, each has a specific role to play. The phalange closest to the palm implies logical thinking, while the nail phalange represents willpower.

The size and shape of each phalange denote how the person utilizes will and logic in making decisions and controlling the elements in their environment.

The index finger, also known as Jupiter’s finger, stands for ambition and guidance. It shows the direction our life is taking and our sense of purpose.

If you have a short Jupiter finger, it may show the lack of purpose or the feeling of inadequacy in different social settings. If you have an extended index finger, it could mean that you’re working too much with the role you’re playing in society.

The middle finger or the Saturn finger is the serious and the clever one out of the five fingers. It is the finger that forces you to ask tough questions, like “What’s the sense of living if we’re all going to die?”.

This kind of question makes you disciplined and composed.

If you have a short Saturn finger (for example: shorter than the palm width), you are thoughtless, you lack judgment, and you always say the wrong thing because you are not giving it much thought. You also lack instinct, and you’re too stiff.

The ring finger or also called the sun finger gives, lets you shine and share your light, just like the sun. This finger represents courage, charisma, passion, and courage.

If the ring finger is short, you lack passion, and you always feel shy and insecure with other people. When the sun finger is long, you are an attention seeker, and you even use your charisma to get what you want and to manipulate others.

The little finger is called the Mercury. It means communication and sexual expression.

If you have a very tiny Mercury finger, it indicates that you are naive and you don’t have any interest in your environment. Meanwhile, if you have a Mercury finger that is longer than the usual, it means that you’re a good communicator, but you tend to lie or cheat your partner.
