Wearing one or more rings is now commonplace. If in the past, they were associated with a sign of wealth, today they have more of an aesthetic symbolism than anything else. Only the wedding ring has a religious connotation.
In Feng Shui, rings have a very particular symbolism depending on the material they are made of, but also depending on the finger and the hand on which they are worn. Here is a short guide to help you understand the symbolism of Feng Shui rings.
Wearing a ring in Feng Shui
On the hands, the meridian paths intersect and are also represented by the fingers. By wearing a ring on one finger rather than another, you reinforce that meridian and the effects it is linked to.
The thumb is located on the Lung meridian. If an imbalance occurs, it is common to feel sadness, intolerance and even contempt. You find it difficult to protect yourself from the outside world.
The thumb represents the ego and is associated with the protection of the territory. In Feng Shui, wearing a ring on your right thumb indicates a desire to regain possession of your territory. On the left thumb, creativity and sensuality are favored.
To amplify the effects, rings made of transparent quartz, rock crystal, diamond or white sapphire are known for their balancing power. Similarly, a horse or dog motif can reinforce the energy of the meridian.
The index finger
The index finger is located on the path of the meridian related to the large intestine. It is linked to guilt and relationships. Energy that does not flow well translates into a need to have control over everything. The future frightens you and you live locked in the past. The index finger represents self-control, ambition and self-confidence. It is also the finger that points and is therefore easily associated with accusation.
In Feng Shui, wearing a ring on the right index finger indicates the will to lead by amplifying the dominant and authoritarian character. On the other hand, wearing it on the left index finger amplifies the exclusive character of a person.
In terms of color, Feng Shui rings worn on the index finger should be white, dark orange or brown. Quartz, diamond, white sapphire, golden topaz or others will tend to dissipate the rigid side and the need for control.
This finger is located on the heart meridian. It symbolizes regret, stubbornness, but also sexual tensions. If the energies do not flow well, the pleasures of life become complicated. The middle finger also represents sexuality and power.
By wearing your Feng Shui ring on the right middle finger, you reveal your great need to be valued by others. Wearing it on the left hand side, you are constantly improving your personality and the recognition of others remains important to you.
Red or green colors enhance confidence. Ruby, garnet, red jasper, quartz, coral, emerald, tourmaline and all green or red stones are favored.
The ring finger
The ring finger is on the passage of the "warmer" meridian. It is related to despair, grief and depressive tendencies. Poor circulation and your happiness is disrupted. The ring finger is also the finger on which the wedding ring is worn. It represents belonging to a person and a deep commitment to them.
Wearing your ring on the left means you expect love and have a passionate nature. On the right, there is a need to transmit love in return.
The color related to this meridian is red, green and pink. In order to enhance the feeling of love and fulfillment, it is advisable to wear stones of these colors, such as garnet, morganite, rose quartz, emerald, etc.
The little finger
This last finger of the hand is linked to the small intestine meridian. It is associated with vulnerability. Poorly flowing energy will be characterized by emotional problems, pressure, overwork, etc.
By wearing a Feng Shui ring on the left little finger, you expect recognition and security. On the right, you show your willingness to look to the future and to others.
In terms of colors, you should favor red and green in order to avoid negative aspects related to irritability, lack of confidence, etc. Ruby, aventurine, peridot, etc., are ideal.
