Palmistry is all about taking control of our life by bringing balance in our body, mind and soul, by understanding our strengths and weaknesses, through interpreting the general characteristics of hands together with the study of the lines, their patterns and other formation and marks, which appear on the palm and fingers.
SUSPICIONS ABOUT PALMISTRY
Suspicious approach about palmistry is existing from the old age, and even still exists in many countries of the world including Pakistan. In the past palmistry was wrongly associated with magic or witchcraft and anything that could not be reasonably or logically explained was immediately put down to sorcery, witchcraft, magic or some kind of association with the devil. But now this thinking had disappeared because of enormous scientific advancement made towards the knowledge and its benefits.
SUPERSTITIONS TOWARDS PALMISTRY
Superstitious attitude towards palmistry is also an old story. The most common superstition made towards palmistry is that "palm lines are just folds or creases in the skin where the hand moves, grasps or bends". But palm lines are not simply caused by folding of the hand which can be understood by following examples:
PALMISTRY & SOCIETY
It is in evitable that palmistry should reflect current religious ideology of the time and there have been times in history when any form of divination was considered to be totally unacceptable. This was particularly the case in Pakistan years ago when palmistry was considered a crafty means to deceive people and deemed to be the work of the devil, causing the practice to be banned and outlawed by the religion. In prohibiting the practice, further serious research declined, and forced to go underground.
PALMISTRY & ISLAM
Many people discourage palmistry from religious point of view because of one of its aspects "future telling". Future telling is understandably not possible and allowed in Islam. But it needs to be understood that palmistry is not mere future telling. Future telling is just an aspect of palmistry and not whole palmistry.
Further palmist can just forecast and not foretell. Palmistry forecast is just like weather forecast which is mostly true but not always true. So you can trust palmistry forecast like weather forecast, but might not get assured about any particular forecast.
HOW PALMISTRY WORKS?
It is believed that the lines of hands are electrical diagram of the brain and every line on our hand is the current of a certain center of our brain. In easy words we can say that lines on our hand are the thoughts of our subconscious mind.
Our body shape and movement are affected greatly by our emotional energy. A person with depression has a body that looks depressed. He stands and moves in a way that we easily recognize that he is depressed. On the other hand, we can easily recognize a person who feels happy. We hold and move our body to signal others how we feel. This ability to consciously or subconsciously send and read body language is a universal trait developed by humans and many animals. Body signals are displayed in ever changing patterns as our energy changes. Whether we want to or not, every second our body is signalling to the world our needs, wants, fears, pleasures, and unconscious feelings. These different energy patterns are most easily recognizable in the face and hands.
MODERN THEORY ABOUT PALMISTRY
The modern theory is that the lines of the hand represent graphic shorthand of the circuits of the brain. The nerve group that controls the hands is exactly in the centre of the brain, and all the electrical energies of our thinking pass through it. palmists feel that the lines on the hand are formed in some relation to thought patterns, nerve linkages, or even chromosomal structures.
RELATION BETWEEN HAND & BRAIN
The hand is the visible part of the brain – Goethe
DOMINANT AND SUBORDINATE HAND
The dominant hand develops faster and records the various changes that occur during our lives. The subordinate hand doesn't develop as fast, so we can truly say that our subordinate hand shows that what luck we were born with, where we have been and what we started with, while our active hand shows that what we are now and where we are likely to go in our life. So both hands are important.
DEVELOPMENT IN PALMISTRY
Advance in genetics, psychology and foreign sciences have pushed Palmistry into the modern age. Especially in the last two hundred years or so, hand reading has seen many new developments, and there now exist other important aspect of hand reading that are not related to any form of prediction, and not restricted to reading only the lines in the palms.
In fact many modern hand readers believe in the idea of free will, with behaviour pattern being largely responsible for creating future possibilities. It is widely believed that if we can alter our behaviour and our attitude, the chances are we can also alter our possible future. A great deal has been documented on the power of positive and negative thinking and its ability to attract equally positive and negative results. It is now generally accepted that the future is not set in stone and that destiny is not already decided. Our attitude to life, and our own reaction to the circumstances around us all can have a strong effect on our experience as we move through life.
PALMISTRY IN THESE DAYS
These days palmistry is well accepted throughout the world. Professional palmists are found reading palms in every country in the world. Palmistry can forecast the future of an individual authentically. In the present day modern world, it would be very helpful for a person if his future is known. It would be easier for him to reach his destined destination. For this purpose we need an authentic and reliable science, which can tell the complete past and to fore- see.
PALMISTRY IN PAKISTAN
In Pakistan Palmistry is still very much as unknown subject. Many people do not truly understand what palmistry involves, and have little or no knowledge of modern hand reading practices. Fortunately this attitude is gradually disappearing as man discovers more about this physical and spiritual nature, and as knowledge of hand reading and its benefits become more widely understood.
FAKE & FRAUD PALMISTS
The only problem palmistry is confronting these days is, those non-professionals and charlatan who have no or very little knowledge of the subject and are giving false readings to the people, which mostly based on their judgment and intuition, and eventually causing the subject to fall into disrepute.
Just reading a book or taking a weekend course is not enough background to turn "professional". In fact, numerous Palmistry books published in the past 30 years are filled with obvious errors, having been written by incompetent analysts who failed to verify their methods or theories. Under no circumstances should we ever pay any money or reward to an unqualified reader, nor should we believe any part of their analysis without verification.
TYPES OF FAKE & FRAUD PALMISTS
There are two types of fake & fraud palmists.
The type of fake & fraud palmist you meet does not matter, what matters is that they have insufficient skill and knowledge to be able to properly guide and advise you in your matters of life.
WARNING SIGNS OF A FAKE & FRAUD PALMIST
The top warning signs that you can find in fake palmist are:
LIMITATIONS OF PALMISTRY
Although palmistry can tell a lot about a person by examining his or her hands, there should not be claim that any palmist can tell all the things very correctly every time. I suspect that those who think they are 100% correct in their readings are guilty of being wrong. The complexity of the many combinations of features found in the hands tends to make palmistry a life long study.
