Predictive Techniques


Palmistry is the science of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of the palm also known as Cheirology. Reading the lines and mounts along with symbols on them precise to the time of event happening in life is very interesting science.

Palmistry takes into account the combination of the five elements and body composition types for a better insight and heightened understanding of the individual.

What is Palm reading
Palm reading helps analyze potential abilities and understand the inherent human nature. It can help provide information about the ideal career, relationships, finances, health, family and other aspects of an individual's life.

The Palmist observes aspects like size, texture, color, forms and formations of lines and other typical symbols on the palm. Based on these readings, accurate predictions are made.

Some Myths About Palmistry
Myth #1
Prehistoric cultures practiced palmistry. Depending on whom you talk to the history of palmistry is said to go back to the Dawn of Time, and people will often point to the paintings of hands found in the Stone Age caves of Africa, France and Spain as evidence of our prehistoric interest in the subject.

As exciting or romantic as this may be to some, there are simply no facts to support such a theory. "The very nature of palmistry limits any history to a record of what has been written about the subject," observed noted palmistry scholar Fred Gettings in his 1965 book, 'The Book of the Hand.' Since our prehistoric ancestors left no written records, we can only speculate as to why they painted hands on the walls of their caves.

Myth #2
Palmistry was studied and practiced by the ancient Greeks & Romans. It is true that there are many references to the practice of palmistry in the ancient literature of India and China, and it is highly likely that much of what was known about palmistry by the Greeks and the Romans originated in India and China. But again, we have no surviving records from the ancient Greek or Roman cultures that supports the somewhat hopeful claim that such notable names as Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates were practicing palm readers.

Myth #3:
Julius Caesar unmasked an impostor prince with palmistry. There is a much-repeated story in the literature of palmistry in which Julius Caesar received a guest in his palace that claimed to be a prince from a royal family.

As the story is told, Caesar was well-versed in palmistry and having looked at the visitor's palm, declared the man an impostor and had him executed. The story usually concludes with Caesar later receiving information that supported his claim that the man was indeed an impostor.

The facts that we have regarding the popularity of palmistry in ancient Rome, however, just don't support this story. At least one contemporary Roman writer reported that the ruling class preferred astrology as their oracle of choice, and tended to look down on palmistry as being rather middle class, and something below their station. If this was indeed the case, it is highly unlikely that Caesar would have chosen palmistry to unmask the fraudulent prince, and far more likely that he would have consulted the court astrologer.

Myth #4:
The Catholic Church banned palmistry. Many sources like to play up the "forbidden wisdom"

aspect of palmistry by claiming that the Catholic Church condemned palmistry in 1000 AD and continued to outlaw it during the Middles Ages.

The fact of the matter is that with only two documented exceptions every Pope in the Middle Ages exhibited an interest in many of the so-called occult arts such as astrology, alchemy and palmistry. These subjects were considered to be part of every learned person's education, and were taught in Church-run universities throughout Europe at the time.

The fact that most of our earliest manuscripts on palmistry were found in European monasteries helps to reveal that the Church actually helped preserve palmistry rather than persecute it.

Myth #5:
Gypsies brought palmistry to Europe. You'll read in a number of places that during the 15th century the Gypsies migrated across Western Europe and introduced the art of palmistry to Europeans.

The record is somewhat different, and indicates that palmistry was reintroduced to Europe as an indirect result of the Crusades in the 12th and 13th centuries. Although the Crusaders traveled to the Middle East to reclaim the Holy Land for Christianity, they also managed to form alliances with some of the rulers there. As a result, the Crusaders were exposed to many of the scholarly works of the Greeks and the Romans which had been preserved by Arab scholars while Europe was busy being pillaged during the Dark Ages by any one of a number of Barbarian of-the-Month Clubs.

Among the texts that the Crusaders brought back with them were copies of manuscripts on palmistry, beating the Gypsies by about two or three hundred years.

Myth #6:
Gypsies were banned from Paris & London in the 15th Century. One popular myth is that when the Gypsies arrived in Paris and London, they were refused entrance to those cities because of their practice of palmistry. As the story goes, when they set up camp outside the city walls of Paris, the residents swarmed out to greet them and have their fortunes told.

The part about the Gypsies being refused entrance to Paris and London may very well be true, but given the acceptance of palmistry by both Church and State, it's not likely that the Gypsies' practice of palmistry had anything to do with them being refused entrance. It's far more likely that other social and political reasons were the rationale for keeping them out.

Myth #7
There is no scientific basis of palmistry. Palmistry is often associated with a number of other so called "New Age" philosophies or systems that have somewhat tenuous scientific support, at least as we understand science today. Despite this perception by many people, the fact remains that palmistry is one of the few psychic sciences that has received a good deal of attention by 19th and 20th century scientists.

How Does Palmistry Work?
Most people associate palmistry with the concept of predicting the future. In reality, such a widespread notion stems from an inadequate awareness of palmistry. By studying the lines and markings on your palm, an established palmist will be able to make out an obvious link between your present personality and your past experiences, behavioral patterns and notable incidents. With such an understanding of your character, the palmist will be able to guide you towards making positive decisions regarding your career, relationships, finance and your future in general.

All of us are predisposed to certain behavioral patterns as a result of certain intense experiences in our past. Just as your character continues to evolve as a result of these experiences, so does the main lines present on your palms. A close study of the markings and lines on your palms directly point towards the behavioral patterns that you may have acquired in response to your past experiences. With a clear understanding of these patterns and how that affects your life, you can definitely eliminate any negative patterns and enjoy an improved quality of life.

Some Basics or Rule of Palmistry
The most important aspect in palmistry is identifying your dominant and non-dominant hand. The dominant hand is your active hand or - to put it simply - the hand you write with. The dominant hand is believed to be a reflection of your present - your aspirations, expectations and achievements. The non-dominant hand is an indicator of your past - habits and incidents from your past and your hidden talents.

Next comes the lines and mounts in your palm. There are seven main mounts on the palm that represent the subconscious traits in your mind. These are the mounts of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The lines on the palm may be classified into major and minor lines. The major palm lines of life, heart and head indicate your degree of subconscious awareness. The minor palm lines - of Sun, Mercury, Saturn and girdle of Venus - are the indicators of your ability to effectively harness the hidden talents and untapped energies within you.

Each line or marking on the palm reveals vital information about your character, your past, present and future. The formation of mounts and shape of fingers also speak volumes about your inherent qualities. Palmistry also involves deciphering certain symbols like a star or cross that may be present in your palm. An expert palm reader does not limit himself to simply predicting your past, present and future. The palmist will also be able to transform your life by guiding you towards a better understanding of yourself.
