The idea that you are forced to ‘grasp’ for something rather than just take it, brings a high level of focus to whatever the symbol represents. For example, drowning and grasping for something for survival brings forward the idea of being overwhelmed with fearful feelings. That thing you are grasping for (as a symbol for exploration) will provide clues to how you might integrate it to find wellness. The hand represents both taking and giving. Grasping something so that you do not lose it suggests desperation and perhaps, an unhealthy relationship to whatever it is.
