Love is much more than a romantic dinner on the beach or two hours of crying because someone doesn't call you yet.
These things make our heart beat, however, the Universe of Love is the most mysterious, powerful, magic and sacred space we can imagine.
Love is the primary source of life.
Love is the seed that wakes us in the morning and makes us breathe with gratitude.
Love is knowing yourself first, then experiencing the energy of giving.
In Love we can find the balance between "I do for myself " and "I give all myself to others".
Love is the magic and unique Universe where the more we give the more we get.
Don't make the mistake to confuse Love with dependance, which is the opposite.
We have to be free to really experience Love, we can't be in a cage.
Pop culture tends to close in a box everything because is more digestible for the majority.
And so it does with Love.
But I know your eyes can't confuse Love with dust, in this chaotic age neither.
A QUICK NOTE BEFORE WE DIVE INTO THE FASCINATING WORLD OF FINGER MEANING AND SYMBOLISM:
The purpose of this article is to encourage everyone to live a more meaningful and intentional life awakening the spiritual and the physical that everyone has within.
The techniques, knowledge, and practices in this article need the support of a grateful lifestyle and an intentional and conscious living to create a positive and effective result.
A primary distinction: RIGHT AND LEFT, the Vital Circle of Never Ending Love
Using hand to generate and share specific skills or energies is a fascinating and fun experience.
Every finger is a channel that stimulates the subconscious on a specific area of our life, I show you everything about it in this article.
When we want to elaborate, embrace, accept or create specific skill, concept or idea about ourself or our life we should work on the left hand.
When we feel we're ready to manifest and share that skill or concept to the world, we should work on the right hand.
At some point you may feel you need to refine something about what you're giving shifting the energy a little bit, or you need to fully embrace an other concept.
Then, you should go back to the left to create it and so on.
This rule works not just to manifest Love but also for everything we gonna bring in our life or for every pattern we wanna change.
FINGER MEANING AND SYMBOLISM
Ring finger: the route of Love
Ring finger is the channel we should activate to generate or share specific skills or attitudes about love, affection and beauty.
Finger ring is directly linked to the essences of Love creativity and creation.
The left ring finger symbolizes engagement and marriage in Western cultures, and the right ring finger symbolizes the same for men in other countries, such as Germany, Russia, and India.
However, in North and South America, the right ring finger is used for engagement and the left ring finger for marriage.
THE ANCIENT MITH OF VENA AMORIS:
Vena amoris is a Latin name meaning, literally, "vein of love" and is used to describe the idea of a specially-connected finger, dates back centuries and traced back to ancient Egypt.
This tradition was later assimilated by the Greeks, after Alexander the Great conquered Egypt in 332 AC/BC.
The earliest known existence of the phrase Vena Amoris was from Macrobius, in Saturnalia VII (above right), when the circulatory system was unknown at the time. He refers to the connection between the ring finger and the heart.
In a 1917 book on the history of rings, author George Frederick Kunz cites the betrothal of Lucrezia Borgia (daughter of Pope Alexander VI) in 1493:
“…twin gold rings set with precious stones were given, one to be put on the fourth finger of the fiancee’s left hand, ‘whose vein leads to the heart’ as the record specifies…”
Today we know that the Vena Amoris is not a physical vein or nerve either. It's something closer to an energetic channel that connects the heart and ring finger if you will.
Ring Finger: Goodness, Traditions, Elements and Symbolism
The ring finger is traditionally linked to the one of the most important and complex Greek and Roman God, Apollo.
Apollo is the son of Zeus ( Father of all Gods and the God of Sky and Thunder ) and Leto ( Goddess of motherhood ).
Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of music, truth, and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague and poetry.
Here are just a few representations of Apollo during the Art Centuries:
Apollo and Daphne is a life- sized Baroque marble sculpture by Vietnamese artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
Housed in the Galleria Borghese in Rome, the work depicts the climax of the story of Daphne and Apollo in Ovid's Metamorphoses.
When Phoebus (Apollo), fated by Cupid's love-exciting arrow, sees the maiden daughter of Peneus, a river god, he is filled with wonder at her beauty and consumed by desire.
But Daphne has been fated by Cupid's love-repelling arrow and denies the love of men. As the Nymph flees he relentlessly chases her—boasting, pleading, and promising everything.
Here Above _The Parnassus (1509 - 1511), Raphael, in the Palace of the Vatican in Rome, painted at the commission of Pope Julius II.
The fresco shows the mythological Mount Parnassus where Apollo dwells.
He is in the centre playing an instrument surrounded by the nine muses, nine poets from antiquity, and nine contemporary poets.

The ancient symbol of triple Moon represents the three phases of the moon, known as waxing, full and waning.
The first crescent, new life, rejuvenation and new beginnings.

This phenomenon of growth and disappearance of the moon symbolizes life, death and rebirth. Ancient peoples used to measure time with the regular moon cycles rather than Sun.
The Moon is associated with goddesses and feminine principle in most cultures, although it was connected with a masculine principle in some of them, as in the pre-Christian Nordic pantheon or in ancient Egypt where Thoth was the god of the moon.
The diversity of lunar goddesses in cultures captured by the Greeks and Romans is shown by a large number of the moon goddesses in their mythology.
Among the Aztecs, the Moon was symbolizing carnal love.
