Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Tip 2: Hands

The other place that I suggest people begin is to look at the hands, because the hands also will lead you.

 

Are the hands pointing to something? Often it appears in icons of the Virgin that she is pointing to or offering her Son to you. In icons of Jesus he is sometimes pointing to a text of Scripture or his hand is raised in blessing or teaching. If his hand is raised in blessing, receive the blessing. If his hand is raised to teach ask what he might want or need to teach you.
