Every part of our bodies hold messages for us. When we can decipher them, we can start to heal, our fingers are no exception.
Pain or injury in different fingers have different meanings. As with everything we have two of, the side of the body affected, is very relevant to discovering the meaning.
Right or Left?
Generally speaking, the right side of our body represents the masculine principle; the outside world, intellect, finance, authority, business etc. The left side represents the feminine principle; our inner-world, intuition, wisdom, creativity, nurturing etc.
The Deeper Meanings
So keeping that in mind, we can begin to decipher the deeper meanings of pain, injury or crookedness in our fingers.
The thumb is related to mental processes and pain or injury here can indicate worry.
Pain or injury to the index finger relates to an ego or blame issue regarding a current situation. It also suggests that anger and fear are involved.
The middle finger relates to anger and sexual issues.
The Ring Finger
The ring finger relates to unions and grief.
The Little Finger
The little finger relates to family issues and untruths.
An Ingenious Tip To Help You Let Go of Anger!
If you are angry with a man or something in your external world, gently hold the middle finger of your right hand, take a few relaxing breaths and feel the anger dissolve. If your anger is directed at a woman or an inner-world, creative or intuitive situation, hold the middle finger of your left hand.
