Each of us believes we are familiar with our own hands, and we tend to take them for granted and use them automatically. It is not until we examine our hands critically that we begin to appreciate the many interesting features that they actually possess. Palmistry is to understand and analyze your own hands you must look at each component in turn: the shape and structure of the palm, the length and build of the fingers, the strength and flexibility of the thumb, the size and construction of the nails, the pattern and composition of the skin ridges, and the quality and information of the lines in the palm.
Each of these features in your hand, whether by its construction, shape, colour, temperature, or other characteristic, will reveal information about your character and personality, about your likes and dislikes, about your motivations and desires, and about how you see the world and live your life. Analyzing each of these features in turn will give you deeper insights into yourself and will enable you to piece together, rather like a jigsaw puzzle, a complete personality profile of you. This is where a palmistry expert in the Woprld can help you best.
Dominant and Passive hands
When assessing the hand, the question of right and left-handedness, and which hand should be studied, is of fundamental importance. Practitioners of hand reading have long recognized that each hand registers and reveals different aspects of our lives. On right-handed individuals, the left, or passive hand, is associated with the private, intimate self, with imagination, instinctive reactions, natural aptitude, and potential abilities. This hand reveals information about childhood years, inherited tendencies, and congenital health. It represents the unconscious self. The right, or active, hand reveals the public persona of individuals and shows how they present themselves to the outside world. Between 10 and 20 percent of the world’s population is left-handed and of those, a slightly greater percentage are male. The scientific reason for right and left-handedness was not understood until recently, but psychological and physiological studies have now confirmed what hand readers have believed for thousands of years. Their research has shown that the two hemispheres of our brain control different functions. In right-handed people, the left side of the brain deals with the “logical” subjects such as reading, writing, calculation, and abstract thought, while the right side controls emotions, non-verbal communication, memory and imaginative intuitive, and creative processes. Commands from each hemisphere cross over and control the opposite side of our bodies, so that the left hemisphere sends messages to the right hand and vice versa.
The shape of the hand determines the basic character of the individual, and constitutes the first building block of their personal profile. All hands will conform to one of four categories according to whether the palm is rectangular or square and fingers long or short with the help of Palmistry. Each of these categories, classified as Earth, Air, Fire and Water describes a set of characteristics common to all members within the group.
The lines in our hands act as registers, recording events and suggesting the possible outcomes of our actions and decision. The Life line, Head Line and Heart line are formed during the first few months of foetal development and just as we inherit the colour of our hair, the strength and direction of our lines, as well as the shape of our hands, are also genetically determined. The other major lines are usually formed later on. Sometimes a baby may have a complete set of lines at birth, but usually they appear gradually, as the child matures. Our lines do not remain static but change and evolve in response to our own progress and development through life.
