The Art of Palmistry
Palm reading is an ancient art and
science. The knowledge of Palmistry empowers both men
and women by taking advantage of one's strengths and
overcoming one's weaknesses. The information on this
site will introduce you to this knowledge. Palmistry is
usually divided into two sections, Cheirognomy,
or the science of reading character from the shape of
the hand and fingers; and Cheiromancy,
the science of reading the actions and habits, the past,
present and future events from the formation of the palm
and the lines marked there on.
The art of palmistry (Chiromancy, or
Palm Reading) has been practiced for 5000 years,
according to writings from ancient China, India and the
Near East. Palmistry is the study of the lines and signs
of the hands. The lines and signs of the hand have been
used to study the character, as a psychological document
or to see diseases at their early stages. The
Babylonians and Egyptians read the fortune of a person
in his or her hands - as well as in the respective
astrological reading, which they saw closely related to
the hand lines. This is why they gave the names of
planets to the lines, fingers and signs as we still do
chief lines of the hand are Life Line, Head Line, and
the Heart Line. Other major lines include the Line of
Fate or Saturn Line, Line of Apollo or Sun Line. The
minor lines are Girdle of Venus, Line of Health, Line of
Intuition, Line of Mars, Lines of Affection, Infulence
Lines and Rascettes or Bracelets. The strength and the
direction of lines in conjunction with each type of hand
will determine the actions and habits and the
significant events in the life of a person that will
lead to success in career, health, wealth, love,
marriage, children and happiness.
Today palmistry is often seen as nonsense or at least a
party gag. But we canít deny our fascination with this
ancient art, which has survived for thousands of years,
rooting in the rich life experience of our ancestors
from all over the world. The hand is as unique as its
owner, and right and left hand of the same person are
not alike and are read individually. Small children are
tactile learners, they learn with their hands by
touching, and from there they come to mentally abstract
thoughts. We come into contact with our environment by
using our hands - we caress, touch, grab, fumble. Brain
and hands are closely connected. This is reason enough
to look behind the bodily scenery. Flexible hands mean a
flexible mind, and the abilities of the hands improve
those of the brain. The fields of the cortex related to
hands and fingers have improved during the evolutionary
process more than the areas, where the other organs are
located, i.e. the feet. Did you know, that the thumb
needs as much space as all other 4 fingers of one hand
Today it is proven that the hand lines are a
representation of the experiences of the central nervous
system, and the lines, signs and grids in your hands are
the way of the brain to express itself. Changes in the
main hand lines mean changes in life. Sidelines change
and develop easier with less effect. An analysis of
character and psyche through hand lines is thus logical.

origin of palmistry?
Palmistry is a method of
counseling that originated in India over 3,000 years
ago. It is a part of a vast field of study, referred to
as Samudrik Shastra, which literally means the
ocean of knowledge. Palmistry is a sub-section of Samudrik
Shastra and deals specifically with the study of the
Is palmistry fortune-telling?
In a word: no. The
original intent of palmistry was for personality
assessment and counseling. One's emotional tendencies,
social attitudes, conscious awareness and subconscious
fears, blockages and strengths can be understood in
great detail through this in-depth system.
Can one make predictions
You cannot make predictions with
palmistry. However, since there is a definite mind-body
connection, we know that negative or positive thinking
affects our well-being. As
well, due to our habitual way of thinking, we often
repeat the same behavior in the future as we exhibit in
the present. If we can understand the pattern of our
habits and thinking, then we can begin to isolate the
negative cycles of behavior and can replace them with
positive new ones. Palmistry can help you see these
patterns. With this information, you can shape own
How does palmistry work?
Palmistry is best seen as a
dynamic process. The lines of the hand are not carved in
stone. Since the lines of the hand reflect our thinking,
as our attitudes and behavior patterns change, the
lines reflect these changes. The lines physically change
as our thinking changes. In
fact, you can see distinct changes in as little as three
is used for palm reading?
It is important to look at both
hands during a reading. Depending on which hand is
active (usually seen as the hand you write with), in
combination with the inactive hand, shows where you have
been (passive), and where you are likely headed (active)
in this life.
keep in mind that this is just an example of the reading
and how it is done. There, of course, is much more to
any reading than just the technical. All readings are a
combination of what you see and what you feel.
