How wearing a wedding ring affects you

How wearing a wedding ring affects you

In popular views, a wedding ring symbolizes eternal love and fidelity, but  wearing a ring has other interesting aspects as well. In Eastern cultures, it is believed that there are energy channels in our bodies, all the way to the tips of the fingers, through which the energy flows. It is important to keep the energy levels in harmony, and one way you can do this is by wearing rings.

Fingers are our energy channels

In traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that the body, including the fingers, has energy channels called meridians, which are used in various healing practices. These channels carry life energy, or chi, which is essential for maintaining physical and mental health.

There are 12 meridians in the body, each associated with a specific organ or body function. The longest is the heart meridian, which ends in the little finger of the hand. This meridian plays an important role in maintaining heart rate, emotional health and harmonious relationships. In turn, the triple warming meridian begins in the ring finger, which is not responsible for a specific organ, but coordinates the functions of the upper, middle and lower parts of the body. It is divided into three parts: the upper, which controls the functioning of the heart and lungs; the middle, which is responsible for metabolism; and the lower, which is responsible for the reproductive system and the removal of substances from the body.

To ensure the proper flow of energy in the body, acupuncture and acupressure are used. However, it is believed that wearing various precious stones and metals in the form of jewellery can also affect the flow of this energy. So, for example, wearing a wedding ring affects the flow of energy in the triple meridian, which is responsible for the health of the body as a whole. Gold has purifying and balancing properties, but silver protects and grounds.

Wedding ring that boosts life energy

In ancient Indian spiritual traditions, Hinduism and Buddhism, the body is believed to contain chakras or energy centres. The chakras are located vertically on top of each other in the body and it is believed that the fingers correspond to different chakras. The ring finger corresponds to the solar plexus chakra, which corresponds to self-esteem and self-confidence. This chakra can be balanced and activated by performing mudras or gestures with your fingers, as well as by wearing rings. This chakra is associated with yellow, so wearing a yellow ring on this finger increases the energy of this chakra. The yellow gold wedding ring will enhance your inner glow, vibrancy, power of personality and self-esteem.

A symbol of love and heart

In Vedic philosophy, every part of the physical body is associated with some mental ability or concept, and physical health is closely related to mental health. Each finger also has a special symbolism and meaning. The ring finger is associated with romantic love, emotional connection and relationship obligations, it is considered to be related to the heart. For this reason, the wedding ring is worn on this finger. The ring finger also represents the earth element associated with stability, grounding and material aspects of life.

In Vedic philosophy, there is a distinction between the active hand and the passive hand. The active hand is the leading hand, for most people it is the right hand. The active hand is the one that releases energy, it is connected to the outside world and activities. But the passive hand is the one that attracts energy, it reflects our potential. When choosing on which hand to wear your wedding ring, you can also take these aspects into account to balance giving and receiving love.

Vein of Love

The vein of love is a concept that has been present in various cultures, including Ancient Greece and Rome. The vein of love connects the fourth finger of the left hand to the heart, which is why, in many cultures, people wear a wedding ring on this finger. Wearing a ring on this finger was thought to allow love feelings to flow right into the heart. However, when we study human anatomy, it turns out that there is no such vein that distinguishes the ring finger from other fingers. Nevertheless, it has a romantic and symbolic meaning in the views of sweetness and its connection with the heart.
