It is hard to say where the art of palm reading originated from. Many ancient civilizations and cultures used some form of palm reading to foretell the future, and a person’s fate.
Some believe it was the Greeks who first started reading palms, a common form of modern palm reading is based on Greek mythology. Others believe it originated in India, and quickly spread to China.
Wherever it originated from, palm reading is a worldwide practice today. Palm reading is often also called chiromancy. In chiromancy, a person’s future can be foretold, it is also said that the lines of the hand hold the character of the soul.
Chiromancy can also be used to determine someone’s character and convictions. Chiromancy, or palm reading is a psychic art. It is impossible to determine in any accurate way whether or not palm reading can indeed do what it claims.
This is not all the fault of science either. When it comes to explaining what the lines on the palm mean, there are as many different viewpoints as there are mouths to say them.
Everyone seems to have their own way of looking at it, no pun intended. There are however, some things that all palm readers have in common.
What’s in your Hand?
A palm reader usually begins with what is called the dominant hand. That is the hand a person writes with. Some people have the ability to do certain things with either hand.
However writing is the one that requires the most conscious effort, and is also the one thing that is hardest to duplicate between one hand and the other. That is why the writing hand is read first.
A palm reader examines the various lines and bumps on the hand. Some of the more visible lines are given names like heart-line and life-line. It is suggested that the size of certain lines can suggest certain things about a person’s character or future prospects.
The other hand, sometimes called the off-hand is said to hold different information. It is believed that this hand reveals information about history and heredity.
This is the hand the reader looks at when they are trying to determine the character of the person in front of them. Not all palm readers believe this, and there is no right or wrong way to go about palm reading.
It is up to the person doing the reading to explain things and it is up to the person having their palm read to decide how much of what they hear they want to believe.
