The story goes that two people used to cross index fingers when making a wish, a symbol of support from a friend to the person making the wish. (Anything associated with the shape of the Christian cross was thought to be good luck.) The tradition gradually became something people could do on their own.” What can Creator tell us?

This is another self-created ritual to focus one’s intention on a desired outcome and employ a ritual as a reinforcement to make it emphatic and definite. The crossed fingers are also used to take things away, to block them. Children have often learned to lie while holding one hand behind their back with their fingers crossed, believing that nullifies the transgression because the crossed fingers nullify the lie itself in some way and negate it. Here again there is a lack of logic because the lie will be heard by another party and will have an effect on them, and holding one’s fingers crossed will do nothing to correct the misinterpretation. In effect, this act becomes a desire for self-protection from the consequences of the lie, because the person will have inner misgivings, via their conscience, and know they are making a transgression of some kind, and that pang of conscience will motivate them to want to be protected from retribution. So, in effect, having lied to another person, they then lie to themselves using crossing of the fingers to somehow signal the universe they didn’t really mean the lie with the assumption that can get them off the hook. So, as with all such rituals, it will serve you to look deeper for what is truly taking place, to define the inner need, and apply an understanding of what can be done to solve the problem while staying in divine alignment, and not using a dodge to avoid personal responsibility or accountability in one’s thoughts and actions.
