Dis­cover the in­ner you and un­lock your fu­ture with this pow­er­ful tool

The prac­tice of read­ing the lines, pat­terns and other char­ac­ter­is­tics of our hands and fin­gers – known as palm­istry or chi­ro­mancy – is as old as civil­i­sa­tion. It was pop­u­lar among the an­cient Egyp­tians, Greeks, Chi­nese and the Ro­mans who used it as a div­ina­tion tech­nique to see into a per­son’s fu­ture.

Its use has devel­oped over the cen­turies and mod­ern-day palm­istry has be­come an amaz­ingly pow­er­ful tool for self-knowl­edge and in­ves­ti­gat­ing our deeper self.

‘It’s of­ten said that the eyes are the win­dows of the soul, but your hands also hold up a mir­ror to the in­ner you,’ says Johnny Fin­cham, who has been study­ing palm read­ing for three decades and teaches the sub­ject at Lon­don’s Col­lege of Psy­chic Stud­ies. ‘Our hands con­vey the se­crets of our true per­son­al­ity, not the per­son we want oth­ers to think we are. The mask we all wear much of the time is never go­ing to fool a hand reader. The palms re­veal all!’

How­ever, palm read­ing isn’t just an es­o­teric art, it’s grounded in sci­ence, which has shown there is a very close re­la­tion­ship be­tween the brain and what we see on our hands.

‘The palm lines are formed when we’re in the womb, so when we’re born we have cer­tain pat­terns, but they change through­out our lives de­pend­ing on our ex­pe­ri­ences,’ ex­plains Johnny. ‘Up­heavals and stress­ful times, like start­ing a new job, mov­ing house, breaks-ups and so on, will all be re­flected in our hands.

‘For ex­am­ple, if you were go­ing through a di­vorce, your palm is quite likely to show an in­creased num­ber of fine stress lines run­ning hor­i­zon­tally across the mid­dle of the palm. How­ever, once you’ve ‘come through the other side,’ that calmer sit­u­a­tion will al­most cer­tainly be re­flected by fewer lines.’
