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.’
