Palmistry - an IntroductionWritten by Jen McCormack
Touch. Rub. Feel. Grip. Click. Clap. Hands, wonderful hands. Have you ever watched a young baby stare in awe and amazement at bewildering sight of things on end of his arms? Slowly he rotates them back and forward, back and forward, oh what marvels these things called hands. How lost we would be without these hands - they are road maps of our souls. And just like we are able to read a street directory to help guide us in our journey so too can we read our hands. Below for your pleasure we have briefly described your main lines and what they mean, and how to interpret them, much to dismay of local "Party Person" (who delights in telling fortunes of others over several glasses of wine) a short life line does not necessarily mean a short life!
The left or right - is right right and left wrong??? Basically, rule of thumb (pardon pun) is which ever hand they write with is considered their dominant hand. When doing a reading you need to find out whether they are left or right handed. So then their dominant hand shows their future and where they're headed and their left hand shows their past and where they've been. Another belief, however not so common is left hand (that is if they are a right handed person) is what they were born with and right hand shows what they have made of themselves. This is a positive reinforcement of just how well someone has done when comparing both hands.
Like most mystic tools, all facets should be taken into consideration, what we have prepared for you is an introduction, you can then search, research and re-research to your hearts delight.
Timeline indications: Below I have also listed which way you read a line for example head line is read from end nearest thumb and if you laid a time line over that you would gradually increase time and therefore age of persons line you are reading.
Head Line deals with your intellect, creativity and way you handle life. This line is read from end nearest thumb. The length of your head line indicative of level of intelligence, if your line goes straight across palm you are a practical and down to earth person. A head line curving toward heart line indicates good business ability. A clear and distinct head line shows good concentration and if your head line ends with a fork you are clever and diplomatic.
If you look at your hand there are generally three major lines running off from thumb area, Head Line is middle one. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Heart Line deals with your emotional responses to life. This line is read from end nearest little finger. If your heart line is long and curved with some distance from fingers this shows a warmhearted, kind person. If your heart line is longer and stronger than that of your head line this means that your heart rules your head or all your decisions are emotionally based. A very deep heart line and one that runs close to fingers shows tendencies to be possessive and if you have chain like links you could be a little bit of a flirt.

Remember Pilate’s words to Jesus? I think it’s rather ironic that a mere mortal man would ask very Truth of Life, “What is truth?” It’s obvious that Pilate couldn’t handle truth, even if it had been given to him in simple reply. With that said, let’s review truth once again.
By definition, truth is an expression, symbol, or statement that matches or corresponds to its object or referent (i.e., that to which it refers, whether it is an abstract idea or a concrete thing). When statement or expression is about reality, it must correspond to reality in order to be true. Yet there are so many statements and views of reality; why should Christians believe that they have only correct view? Shouldn’t people interpret reality for themselves and personally decide what is true on an individual basis? When it comes to religion, isn’t truth a matter of preference and therefore relative? [Norman Geisler and Peter Bocchino, Unshakable Foundations, (Bethany House: Minneapolis, Minnesota) p.33]
Is truth relative? Relativistic thinking has influenced us so much that it is now considered anti-intellectual to believe in absolute truth. The Christian’s belief in absolute truth and God of Bible is not usually tolerated in secular intellectual settings. There is generally tremendous pressure exerted by peers, colleagues, educators, and unbelieving friends to get Christians to abandon their beliefs and to accept idea that their narrow-minded thinking is same mindset that ultimately causes travesties like medieval Crusades and all kinds of persecution. They are classified as intolerant bigots who can only see things their own way and refuse to accept views of others. [Ibid, p.35]
That’s a shame because truth is absolute and very tolerant. The problem for some is that truth is larger than our understanding of its holistic properties. For example, there is an old parable about six blind Hindus touching an elephant. One blind man touched side of elephant and said it was a wall. Another blind man touched ear and said it was a large leaf of a tree. Yet another blind man was holding a leg and thought it was a tree trunk. Still another blind man took hold of elephant’s trunk and said it was a snake. Someone else was touching elephants tusk and believed it to be a spear. Another blind man had elephant’s tail in his hand and was calling it a rope. All blind men were touching same reality but were understanding it differently. They all had right to interpret what they were touching in their own personal way, yet it was same elephant.
