Palmistry is the practice of interpreting a person's character or predicting their future by examining the lines and other features of the hand. This online course will teach you everything that you need to know in order to read palms.
There are three forms of palmistry:
Chiromancy involves reading the palm by studying the lines and mounts(bumps)
Chirognomy involves judging character by the shape and appearance of the hand.
Dermatoglyphicshe study of the skin ridges of the hand and of fingerprints.
Most readers begin by reading the person’s dominant hand (the hand they write with or use the most). A variety of factors may be considered including the shape of various lines, flexibility of the palm, characteristics of the fingers, shape and size of the palm and the nails.
The information given during a palm reading can be used to help the person understand themselves better and use that knowledge to help them to make decisions. The lines of the hand can change over time, reflecting the changes we make in our lives.
Palmistry is easy to learn and requires no knowledge of other fields of study, although knowledge of astrology can be helpful as there is a close connection between traditional palmistry and astrological theory. This in-depth online course will teach you everything that you need to know in order to read and translate palms.
A reader usually begins by reading the person's dominant hand. This is often considered to represent the conscious mind, whereas the other hand represents the unconscious. In some traditions, the non-dominant hand is believed to describe hereditary or family traits or past-life conditions.
The dominant hand can indicate future events as well as character traits. It describes your public face, environment, education, experience and what you have actively developed. The non-dominant hand shows your potential and inner self. It describes your private face, your instincts and your latent abilities. Some palm readers only consider the dominant hand in a reading. When something is marked on the non-dominant hand and not on the dominant hand, there will be a tendency that might not come to any result.
The best time to read a hand is when the person is relaxed and not immediately after a full meal, alcohol or exercise, which can make the lines appear more reddened than usual. Similarly, the person should not be too hot or too cold. The hand should be gently contracted, not held out flat but with the muscles relaxed so that the hand is as loose as possible.
Hold the hand loosely in yours and examine its shape, size and colour. Look for general themes and impressions first so that you can place the information you glean into context. You might find it easiest to systematically take notes as you go along, at least in the beginning. A record sheet is supplied in the appendix to this course that you can print out and fill in.
In the past, readers would often study ink prints of palms. Nowadays with such easy access to digital cameras, it is easiest to photograph the palms you wish to study, using the computer to enlarge sections to allow you to take a closer look.
