A general overview of Palmistry

Palmistry is the art of reading character and destiny from the shape of the hand and the lines of the palm. It is not merely fortune-telling but about knowing yourself that what you are and where you are going. The palm gives us a map of our life and it is up to us to make the most of it. Through self-awareness we can shape our fate and affect our future. 




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.




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.




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.




Superstitious attitude towards palmistry


, stemming from the old age, still exists in many countries including Pakistan. The image of palmistry and its association with gypsy fortune telling continues to linger, despite the huge advantage made in our knowledge of the subject. People have always feared the unknown, and in the past, anything that could not be reasonably or logically explained was immediately put down to sorcery, witchcraft or some kind of association with the devil.
