Palmistry (also known as palm reading) dates back ancient practices of foretelling with roots in Hindu or Indian circles. Reading of the palms spread to other parts of the world, including China, Egypt, Persia, Tibet, and other parts of Europe. In Greece, the practice is known as chiromancy. This article will offer more details regarding this practice.
There’s a mysterious factor associated with palmistry, which was originally used as a way to counsel and assess personality traits. Details about fears, blockages, emotional tendencies, and strengths can be revealed. It is believed that you can obtain information from the palm by acknowledging certain features that appear on the skin. The practice was so recognized that it was actually taught in schools because it was viewed as a science.
In the past, a palm reader only paid attention to the lines of the palm on the hand, but today, readers will also focus on the back of the hand and the knuckles. They will note the shape of the fingernails. They will measure the length of the fingers compared to the palm. The size and angle of the thumb is also taken into account. The texture and coloring of the skin even comes into play. Instead of looking at one hand, both are analyzed.
Misconceptions of Palmistry
While some palmists are highly accurate, they can’t tell you if you will find the love of your life tomorrow or have three sons to carry on your family name. However, they can comment on the kind of personality traits you possess that can help you find a compatible mate. Palmistry cannot pinpoint the date you will make your first million (if ever), but could tell you about some of the quirks you have that makes some career choices more ideal than others.
Let’s take the lifeline for example. The length of your line does not indicate how long you will live, but gives clues as to some of the health factors you may face in life. You will not know if you’ll suffer a stroke when you are 50 years old. Yet, childhood diseases and other details can suggest a future issue with your nerves, blood, or digestion. Signs of illness do fade once a condition has been cured or treated. For instance, signs of stress can emerge in the skin and disappear after tension has been relieved.
However, it is important to note that exploring any form of prediction or divination is not a way to grasp on your fixed future or a definite health condition. Use palmistry and other methods to learn more about yourself and tap into potential possibilities of the future.
