Based on the techniques used in Roma fortune-telling and Indian astrology, palm reading has been incredibly popular throughout most of the civilised world for centuries. Often referred to as palmistry or chiromancy, many people believe they can predict someone’s future by assessing the different lines on their hand, though, there is a little bit more to it than that.
This guide will fill you in on everything you need to know about palm reading, how to do it, and what the results could mean for you.
With its beginnings in Far Eastern countries like India, Tibet, Persia, and China, palmistry spread like wildfire between ancient cultures like the Babylonians and the Sumerians until finally reaching European Countries. Even Aristotle is alleged to have said “lines aren’t written into the human hand for no reason, they emanate from heavenly forces and man’s own individuality.
Although most people consider palm reading to be a “bit of fun” nowadays, in previous times it was taken very seriously indeed. In fact, during the renaissance period, palmistry was considered to be one of the seven forbidden arts.
Unlike clairvoyant readings and psychic mediumship, most people consider palmistry to require no psychical talents whatsoever. In truth, it is simply a methodology that anybody can learn with practise. For females, it is said that the right hand represents factors the individual was born with, whereas the left hand represents elements that have been accumulated throughout the persons lifetime. This is reversed for males.
The first thing a palm reader does is to locate the four main lines; the heart line, the fate line, the life line, and the head line. Once this is achieved, the reader then makes judgements on the subjects life based on how long, and in which location these lines are. You will be able to find detailed descriptions of how to do this online, but just for the sake of an example; if the heart lines begins below the index finger, this means that the subject is content with their love life, whereas is the heart line is straight and short; the subject has less interest in romance etc.
In modern times palmistry has been criticised for the lack of supporting scientific evidence. Most people consider it to be a pseudoscience based in supernatural beliefs, but this doesn’t mean it’s total rubbish at all. We have to remember that scientists have been brainwashed into seeing the world through a textbook, so it’s unsurprising they take such a view. Though “so called” experts dismiss palmistry, many other people believe that it holds a special significance with mankind as a whole.
