Palm Reading – A Palm Reading How-To For Anyone
Palm reading, or palmistry, is a very fascinating subject. Whether you want to be an established palm reader, or you want to do palm reading just for fun, there are a lot of insights that can be gained from this art.
What Is Palmistry?
Palmistry is based on the principle that the lines on your palm can tell the story of your life. Each line has a particular reference to a certain aspect of your life, including relationships, travel, career, health, and more. With palmistry, you can identify your strengths and weaknesses, and subsequently learn to balance them out for the betterment of your inner being.
Palmistry is said to have its roots in India, thousands of years ago. From there it grew in popularity in the Far East, and then went on to be practised all over Europe, in such places as Greece and Rome. Studies show that palmistry was widely regarded by the ancient Hindus, Persians, Hebrews, Tibetans, Chinese, and Babylonians.
Before you start to do palm reading, you must know which palm to start with. Traditionally, palmists believed that the left hand of a woman, and the right hand of a man, are the ones that should be examined.
Modern palmists, however, believe that a person’s dominant hand (the one with which they write) , represents their practical side, and will show you how a person has applied their ambitions and talents to their lives. A person’s non-dominant hand is their emotional side, and will reveal more about their personality. So it is important to read both hands and not just one.
