Dreaming about the hand and its meaning
It is probably the part of the body that you use the most and through which you relate to others. The hand is in fact the first tool of human contact : through it you introduce yourself, you gesture in discussions (even the most lively ones!), you communicate with other individuals.
Shaking hands or raising your hand to greet a person are just one example of the many actions performed by this important part of the human body, which uses its own non-verbal language, “emphasizing” what is not spoken.
But the hand is also a tool for transformation , manipulation , organization of the surrounding space, creation of things and therefore useful and valuable.
This makes it a very recurring symbol in dream visions, whose meaning is found in creative activity , in concrete action, in work done and to be done .
And any gesture or feeling that accompanies the hand in a dream should not be neglected, because it allows for greater contextualization and therefore a better interpretation.
Dreaming the hand: the deep symbology
We have just seen the extreme importance of the hand, of this appendage of the human body, both in everyday reality and during dream activity. And this since ancient times: the right hand represented the “masculine side”, the mind, intellect, logic , while the left hand expressed the “feminine side”, the heart, instinct, sensuality . If what has been particularly imprinted in the dream is the hand itself, it means that greater incisiveness and clarity is necessary in the way of communicating and relating to others.
Dreaming of the hand is initially a positive sign, of good wishes : it is important, however, to bring to light the context in which it acts, the action it performs, in order to then make an adequate interpretation. As you can imagine, there are many scenarios related to dreaming the hand: we will deal with them in the next paragraph.
