What are the origins of palmistry?

Palmistry is believed to have originated in India over 3000 years ago. It is thought to have then spread to the Middle East through Arabian traders, and to Eastern Europe by way of the gifted Romany gypsies, before eventually reaching the West. It may also have spread eastward to become the basis for Chinese palmistry, which has slightly different interpretations.

 

What is Cheiromancy?

Cheiromancy, sometimes called Chiromancy, is another name for palmistry. It is believed that palmistry was first practised in ancient India, and later spread to other civilisations. It is one of the oldest methods of divination. Read more in the article What is Cheiromancy?

 

How is it that palmistry can tell us about ourselves and our future?

The palms are areas of the body with a high concentration of nerve endings, so it has a strong connection with the brain. It is logical to assume that our brains are able to influence those nerve endings, visible as the palm lines. The brain is not only a physical organ but also the source of a strong electromagnetic field around the body, which shifts and changes according to our moods and attitudes. A certain attitude will cause certain reactions, which will lead to certain actions being taken. Therefore, it is possible to predict the outcome of an area of life for someone.

 

Can one foretell the future with Palmistry?

It is possible only in the sense that our future is shaped by who and what we are. A certain character and attitude will create certain types of future events. A different character will create a different set of future events. This is an important point to remember. It is not possible to foretell exactly the events that will actually happen, as palm reading is not 'seeing' the future. Moreover, changes in a person's outlook and attitudes will modify the events happening in the future.

 

Is palmistry a pagan or heathen practice?

To believe in anything without giving due credit to our Creator can be construed as pagan or heathen. Palmistry does not advocate that it be followed like a religion, nor does it pretend to replace God's power and grace. Some of us need God's help to live this earthly life. Ohers have been blessed by God with enough strength of character to make the right choices. It can also be argued, if God created each of us, then our palm lines come from Him too. We need to see things in perspective and not blindly follow others' judgement of ourselves or others' view of the world we live in. Even within traditional religions, we need to use our will to make our own choices. Ultimately, we still hold in our own hands the potential to change our destiny, whether we are pagan or not.

 

Is everything that a palm reader says absolutely true?

What a palm reader sees in someone's hands today shows the type of life that is most likely to unfold for that person, if he/she retains the character that he/she has today. If the outlook and attitudes of that person change, the palm lines will also change, and therefore a different life will unfold. A palm reader does not actually 'see' a person's future. The reader only reads the probable outcome of that person's future based on the character and tendencies shown in the hands.

Go to Top

How can I know if a palm reader is genuine and not making things up?

A palm reader should be able to accurately read some events of a person's past, and this is a form of verification of the reader's training. One trick of a not-so-genuine reader is to take cues from the subject's facial expressions or body language. If a reader seems to depend exclusively on these signals, that may indicate that that reader may not have sufficient knowledge to give pure interpretations of the palm lines. That is not to say that such readers are frauds, as some readers are able to use their psychic powers to correctly interpret the lines. But this is a factor to consider when assessing palm readers.

 

Which type of palmistry reading do you do?

The basis of the palmistry readings we do is Cheiromancy, or 'Western' palmistry, which in turn originated from Hindu or Vedic palmistry as found in India. There are also other aspects of palmistry which are added to the readings, which are not found in traditional palmistry, but through observation and verification, and corroboration by clients, have been found pertinent and helpful.

 

How are the readings conducted?

After an appointment is made for a full reading, the reader will meet the client and start by asking which hand is the strong hand. The reader then proceeds to read the palm lines of both hands, going through the different areas of life, outlining strengths and weaknesses, and highlighting events and milestones. Questions may be asked during the reading.

 

What are the fees for palm readings?

The fees for a full private reading is US$42.00 or SG$60.00 per reading. From time to time, there will be promotions or special offers for private consultations. For events, the fees are on a per hour basis; go here for more info on events reading.

 

How long does a reading take?

A full private reading takes anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes, at times a little longer. Readings at events are of much shorter durations of 3 to 5 minutes, so as to accommodate as many attendees as possible.

 

How often should I have my palms read?

For some, the palm lines can change in as little as 3 months, as they may be sensitive persons, easily subject to the energies within and around themselves. For others, the lines hardly change over long periods of time, as they have a more stable and practical mentality. A general frequency is about every 1 to 2 years.

 

Can the palm lines change?

Most certainly, yes. They change all the time, but we are not aware of the changes as they are very gradual and change more in the quality of the lines and, to a lesser extent, in the quantity. In any case, most of us do not regularly check our hands for changes. Some people's lines change more frequently than others.

Go to Top

Can one change future events indicated by the palm lines?

Yes, it is indeed possible to do so. What is shown by the palm lines today is due to who and what we are, and will show the outcome of the life if we do not make any changes to our outlook and attitudes. The same logic says that it should be possible to do things the other way around, i.e. change our outlook and attitudes, which, in turn, change our palm lines, which then reflect a different future outcome.

 

How does one change one's destiny?

This is where our WILL comes in. To effect a change in our lives, we need to use our willpower to make a conscious effort to make a certain change. There has to be a deliberate intention to achieve the desired objective. This puts us in charge of our destiny and gives us the power to go any way we want. However, it is true that many people are too weak to make any changes and will continue to drift along the same path that their outlook has decided for them.

 

How can I develop my willpower?

The key is to understand yourself first. Know what you want, where you want to go, how you are going to get there, and who you want to be. Examine your life and determine your goals. Then, focus on your goals and start actively working toward them. Periodically review your life to see if you are still on track. It is important to avoid getting distracted by others' negativity, or their own motives, or even their good intentions for you. Believe in yourself. Have faith that you will achieve what you want. Doing all these things will build up your willpower. Ultimately, you are the master of your destiny, and only you can answer for any good or bad deeds you have performed in your life.

 

Which is the hand that should be read?

Both hands are read. The strong hand, which is the right hand for most, represents what we make of our lives and what we show to the world. The weak hand, usually the left hand, is what we are born with, what we instinctively feel. Another way to see it is that the strong hand is what is exposed, the weak hand is what is hidden.

Go to Top

I write with my right hand but eat with my left. Which should be read?

In cases such as this, the reader will try to find out which may be the naturally stronger of the two hands. The hand with the acquired dexterity would be taken as the weak hand. Sometimes, even the owner of such hands does not know which may be the naturally strong hand. Then, the palm lines are compared and the palm with the lines clearly deeper and stronger will be taken as the strong hand.

 

Can I know only the good things that will happen, and not the bad?

Yes, of course. But that would not be utilising palmistry in the best way. Palmistry helps us to see what may lie in the future so we can take appropriate steps to avoid any negative outcomes. This is the great benefit of palmistry - to enable us to take charge of our future and to mould it to how we want it to be.

 

So how can I avoid the bad events indicated in my palm lines?

By knowing that a problem can be expected in a certain area of life at a certain point in the future, we can focus on that area in the present and try to see where trouble may be building up. We can then take action to rectify the problem before it has a chance to occur.

 

Can the ages at which events are to take place be taken as accurate?

In a standard reading, timelines given for events in the various areas of life are estimations, with a margin of 1 to 2 years on either side of the stated age. It takes a lot of time to cross-reference the different lines to arrive at the exact age of every event, and it may not be possible to do this during a standard reading.

 

Can palmistry tell me if I will win the lottery? Or if I'll become rich?

It can tell if you might be receiving money that you did not have to earn or work for, or in other words, what may be termed 'lucky money'. However, this can come in many forms, such as actually winning the lottery, or receiving an inheritance, or receiving funds from someone as a gift or to start a business with, or getting a retrenchment bonus. It can also tell about your financial situation throughout your life, and whether most of your wealth will be earned money or otherwise gained.

 

Can my hands tell me what kind of career would be best for me?

The hands can tell if a person is more scientifically or technically minded, or more artistically or creatively inclined. It can also tell if the career is one with heavy responsibilities or is of a 'lighter' type, and whether the field is a traditional or non-traditional one. Special talents can also be seen. However, it may not be helpful to pinpoint a particular job as that may not be the right one. We should try to do not only what we are competent at but also what we find fulfilling.

 

Should I change my job? When should I make a job change?

Career changes and the course of the career can be clearly seen in the palm. The way to identify when the changes take place is to ascertain the corresponding age on the lines read.

Go to Top

Will the new job be better or worse for me?

The nature of the line after a career or job change will show whether the change will be a positive one or not. If the outcome after the change is not positive, a change in a person's attitude or outlook, or a re-look at the career direction, may be called for. Usually, a fate line with a patch that is weak or wavering shows dissatisfaction or low confidence in the career for that period. It will strengthen or straighten out once resolution and commitment are made in the career area.

 

Can palmistry tell me what kind of illness I will have in the future?

It can tell if and when there may be a serious illness in the future, and whether it may be a chronic or sudden illness. As to the nature of the illness, some readers are able to indicate the general type of illness that may be forthcoming, although this may not always be accurate.

 

I feel fine, but my palm lines say I may have an illness. What do I do?

If the reader can see illness happening around the time of the reading but you think you are well, it is possible there may be an underlying condition building up which you are still unaware of and which may lead to an illness sooner or later. In such cases, if there are any unusual symptoms or aches, a visit to the doctor would be helpful, if only for peace of mind. It would also be good to take stock of your health and rectify any ongoing neglect or abuse of the health.

 

How do I deal with negative energies and stress as shown in my palm?

Usually, hands with a lot of stress and negativity showing up in them belong to people with low self-esteem. Either they are confused, fearful or crave the approval of others, or they worry incessantly and work themselves up into a state of constant tension and anxiety. Such people need to learn to respect themselves more, and they will then find that others will respect them for who they are, and not for who they are expected to be. Yoga and meditation are two good methods to remove negative energies from our personal auras, and to release stress and be calmer, so that positive energies can fill us and work for our well-being and happiness.

 

I have a short life line. Does that mean I will have a short life?

Length of life is not so clearly shown in this way. The life line mainly represents the general physical condition and quality of life. There are other lines, one of which is the Fate Line, that need to be checked for well-being, state of health and illnesses, so as to get a complete picture of the health. Even if a serious illness is indicated at some point, there are ways to prevent it actually happening. See next question.

 

Can palmistry tell how long a person will live?

No. There may be indications of a serious illness or severe dissipation of the life force, so those will be the danger points to watch out for. The will still comes into play. If nothing is actively done, then, sadly, death may be a possibility, but only a possibility and definitely not a certainty. What is important is to take active steps to deal with the negative effects of a danger period. For example, taking better care of the health, or avoiding taking unnecessary risks. There are many cases of terminally ill people who had been given only months or even weeks to live, but who, by dint of their willpower, initiated lifestyle changes and managed to turn back from the brink of death.

Can palmistry tell me when I will get married?

It is possible to check if there will be a long-term, serious or major relationship coming up in the future. Lines in different parts of the hand can show if it is a commitment-type relationship, in which case, marriage is a strong possibility.  In some cases, there is no marriage but a living-together situation which feels like marriage. In other cases, there is a marriage but the relationship is a fragile one, or a long-distance one, or the couple feels like they are still singles.

 

Is it possible to see if I will have an arranged or a love marriage?

This is possible in most, but not all, cases. Sometimes, an arranged marriage indication may not be one which is formally arranged by the parents. It can mean that the person was pushed or pressured in some way to enter into a marriage.

 

Can I know  if my marriage or relationship will be a happy one?

It is also possible to see whether the marriage or a major relationship, once it is initiated, will be a happy one or not, and also to see indications of what the outcome of the relationship will likely be, one way or another. Having said that, bear in mind that relationship and marriage lines change relatively easily and any potential problems can be overcome with some effort at taking appropriate steps.

 

Can the hands tell if there will be a divorce in the life?

Yes, it is possible to see potential breakups in the major relationships. However, once this is known, it is cause for examining the relationship and taking active steps to rectify any problems which may be brewing which could lead to a breakup.

Go to Top

Can I know about my family from my palm lines?

Individual family members are not well represented in our hands. Only superficial information can be gleaned from a person's palm lines about family members. Lines showing close ties or coming from the family area may indicate pressure or support from the parents and the family in general. It is best to read the individual family member's hands.

 

Would I be able to know about my children from my palm lines?

As stated in the previous question, only brief information can be read and it is best to read the actual child's hand, especially if they are adults. There is only minimal information shown about one's prospects for having children, as well as for the future outlook of one's children.

 

Is it all right to have my child's hand read?

Children's palm lines are not fully developed, as their characters are still evolving, and it is not really necessary to do readings for them before they are 16 years old. Bear in mind that one's life story does not unfold, and therefore does not show clearly in the palm lines, until one becomes a full-fledged adult.

 

Do you conduct any lessons or courses on palmistry?

Currently, there are no courses offered. However, there are plans to organise palmistry courses and workshops in the future, which will be announced on this site.

 

Can you recommend some good books on palmistry?

Although Cheiro did not write much on the subject, what he left behind is as close to traditional palmistry as one can get today. His books provide a solid grounding in the basics of palm reading. William Benham wrote a 'bible' of hand reading after conducting his own extensive, detailed research. There are also other excellent authors of palmistry, and one can gain much by reading them. Recommended books are listed in the Resources page.
