Was traveling planets, with two guy friends, it is like they are just meeting, and realise they are from a similar energy system, they both do this amazing double spiral hand shake where it looked like many hands and arms were involved, definately a cultural thing, feeling fulfilled we laugh and we are happy.
A schematic image of the evolution of the universe. It is also a classical
form symbolizing the orbit of the moon (50), and a symbol for growth, related to
the Golden Number (32), arising (so Housay maintains) out of the concept of the
rotation of the earth. In the Egyptian system of hieroglyphs the spiral—corresponding to the Hebrew vau—denotes cosmic forms in motion, or the relationship between unity and multiplicity. Of especial importance in relation to the
spiral are bonds and serpents. The spiral is essentially macrocosmic (19). The
above ideas have been expressed in mythic form as follows: ‘From out of the
unfathomable deeps there arose a circle shaped in spirals. . . . Coiled up within the
spirals, lies a snake, a symbol of wisdom and eternity’ (9). Now, the spiral can be
found in three main forms: expanding (as in the nebula), contracting (like the
whirlwind or whirlpool) or ossified (like the snail’s shell). In the first case it is an
active sun-symbol, in the second and third cases it is a negative moon-symbol
(17). Nevertheless, most theorists, including Eliade, are agreed that the symbolism of the spiral is fairly complex and of doubtful origin. Its relationship with
lunar animals and with water has been provisionally admitted (18). Going right
back to the most ancient traditions, we find the distinction being made between
the creative spiral (rising in a clockwise direction, and attributed to Pallas Athene)
and the destructive spiral like a whirlwind (which twirls round to the left, and is
an attribute of Poseidon) (51). As we have seen, the spiral (like the snake or
serpent and the Kundalini force of Tantrist doctrine) can also represent the potential centre as in the example of the spider’s web. Be that as it may, the spiral is
certainly one of the essential motifs of the symbolism of ornamental art all over
the world, either in the simple form of a curve curling up from a given point, or in
the shape of scrolls, or sigmas, etc. Parkin observes in his Prehistoric Art that ‘no
ornamental motif seems to have been more attractive than the spiral’. Ortiz (41)
suggests that, from a semantic point of view, the spiral is an emblem of atmo- spheric phenomena and of the hurricane in particular; but the fact is that the
hurricane in its turn is a symbol of secession from the creative (as well as destructive) functions of the universe, that is, of the suspension of the provisional but
pacific order of the universe. He also points to the connexion between breathing
and the creative breath of life. He goes on to suggest that the volute in ancient
cultures was a spiral form symbolizing the breath and the spirit. It is for this
reason that the Egyptian god Thoth is represented with a large spiral on his head.
Finally, by virtue of its significance in connexion with creation, with movement
and progressive development, the spiral is an attribute of power, found in the
sceptre of the Egyptian pharaoh, in the lituus of Roman augurs and in the presentday walking-stick. In addition to the above, it is also possible that the spiral may
symbolize the relationship between the circle and the centre. For the spiral is
associated with the idea of the dance, and especially with primitive dances of
healing and incantation, when the pattern of movement develops as a spiral curve.
Such spiral movements (closely related to the pattern of the mandala and to the
spiral form that appears so frequently in art from the Mesolithic Age onwards—
particularly in France, Ireland and England) may be regarded as figures intended
to induce a state of ecstasy and to enable man to escape from the material world
and to enter the beyond, through the ‘hole’ symbolized by the mystic Centre.
Striking examples of such spirals are those of Gravinias (Morbihan), New Grange
(Leinster), Carnwath (Scotland) and Castle Archdall (Ulster).
Seeing a spiral in your dream indicates that some situation in your waking life is spilling out of control with end. Alternatively, it may mean your creative power and new ideas.
In the Egyptian tongue, the term designating the hand was related to
that for the pillar (or a support, or strength) and for the palm (4). In esoteric
doctrine, the position of the hand in relation to the body, and the arrangement of
the fingers, convey certain precise symbolic notions (48). According to the Egyptian system of hieroglyphs, the hand signifies manifestation, action, donating and
husbandry. An eye in association with a hand—as for example in some oriental
mythic beings—symbolize ‘clairvoyant action’ (19). Schneider concedes a major
rôle to the hand ‘because it is the corporeal manifestation of the inner state of the
human being’ and because ‘it expresses an attitude of mind in terms other than the
acoustic’—or, in other words, a gesture. It follows, then, that the raised hand is
the symbol of the voice and of song; the hand placed on the breast indicates the
attitude of the sage; placed on the neck it denotes sacrifice; two hands joined
signifies mystic marriage—the Jungian individuation; the hand covering the eyes
represents clairvoyance at the moment of death (50). Of great importance is the
fact that the hand has five fingers, firstly, because of its broad analogy with the
human figure (composed of four extremities plus the head), and, secondly, by
reason of the symbolism of the number five (denoting love, health and humanity)
(40). In Egyptian hieroglyphics, the open hand signifies any specificially human
task as well as magnetic force (19)—an idea also characteristic of pre-Columbian
America. And a very similar belief lies behind the widespread use of the hand as
an amulet in Islamic cultures. According to Berber thought, the hand signifies
protection, authority, power and strength; the manus had the same meaning for
the Romans, symbolizing in particular the authority of the pater familias and of
the emperor, and is sometimes to be seen surmounting the signum of the legions
in place of the imperial eagle. In the Islamic amulets mentioned above, the figure
of the hand undergoes various modifications or appears in association with other
symbols, as, for instance, the star, the dove, the bird, the fan, the zigzag and the
circle, forming emblems comparable with those of the Christian West (12). The
familiar emblem of the ‘linked hands’ is expressive of a virile fraternity, or solidarity in the face of danger (49). In Jung’s opinion, the hand is endowed with a generative significance (31). The difference between the right hand and the left is
usually ignored, but when the distinction is made it appears merely to serve the
purpose of enriching the basic significance with the additional implications of
space-symbolism, the right side corresponding to the rational, the conscious, the
logical and the virile; the left side representing the converse (33). There are alchemic images which represent a King clasping in his own left hand the left hand
of the Queen. Jung suggests that this may refer to the unconscious character of
their union but that it may also be indicative either of affection or of suspicion
To dream of your hands, represent your relationships with those around you and how you connect with the world. Hands serve as a form of communication and can represent authority, hate, protection, justice, etc depending on the gesture. Perhaps you need to lend a helping hand to someone. In particular, the left hand symbolizes your graciousness and your feminine, receptive qualities, while the right hand symbolizes the masculine and active attributes. The right hand may also be a pun for some decision or something being "right". If you dream that your hands are detached or see disembodied hands, then it indicates that you are not getting your point of view across. You are not being understood. The dream may also symbolize feelings of loneliness.
To dream that you are holding hands with someone, represents love, affection and your connection with that person. Your dream may also reflect anxieties about losing touch with him/her or that you are drifting apart.

To dream that your hands are itchy, indicate issues with money. If the left hand is itchy, then it signifies money being received. If the right hand or both hands are itchy, then it signifies money being given or lost.
If you see beautiful hands in your dream, you will enjoy great distinction, and rise rapidly in your calling; but ugly and malformed hands point to disappointments and poverty. To see blood on them, denotes estrangement and unjust censure from members of your family.
If you have an injured hand, some person will succeed to what you are striving most to obtain.
To see a detached hand, indicates a solitary life, that is, people will fail to understand your views and feelings. To burn your hands, you will overreach the bounds of reason in your struggles for wealth and fame, and lose thereby.
To see your hands covered with hair, denotes that you will not become a solid and leading factor in your circle.

For a woman to admire her own hands, is proof that she will win and hold the sincere regard of the man she prizes above all others.
To admire the hands of others, she will be subjected to the whims of a jealous man. To have a man hold her hands, she will be enticed into illicit engagements. If she lets others kiss her hands, she will have gossips busy with her reputation. To handle fire without burning her hands, she will rise to high rank and commanding positions.
To dream that your hands are tied, denotes that you will be involved in difficulties. In loosening them, you will force others to submit to your dictations.

Every case of duplication concerns duality, balanced symmetry and
the active equipoise of opposite forces. Double images, the symmetrical duplication of forms or figures—such as the supporters in heraldry—symbolize precisely that. But any case of duplication based upon a horizontal axis, in which the
upper figure is the inverse of the lower, has a deeper meaning arising from the
symbolism of level. A dual being is often found in cabbalistic emblems, the upper
figure being known as Metatron and the lower Samael; it is said of them that they
are inseparable companions for life (57). It may well be that beneath this image
there lies a symbol of the essential ambivalence of all phenomena, or, rather, that
it refers to the great myth of the Gemini.
To see your own double in your dream, suggests that you are attempting to recapture the past and the good old times. Alternatively, the dream may indicate that you are needlessly working twice as hard or doing double duty.
Your hands are used to do things, without them we can do very little. When your hands are metaphorically tied it means you cannot complete a task. If your hands are being affected in a negative way in your dreams it may mean that you feel you are not able to complete certain tasks in your waking life, or that you doubt your ability to complete them. If you see clenched hands, fists, it could signify a greater frustration concerning a given task that you feel should be easier to complete.
To dream that you are energetic, symbolizes growth, activity, expansion and insight. You need to channel your energy in a positive way.
