An Introduction to Palmistry / palm reading diagram
When we open up our palms, we can see that there are many lines and creases in our palms. Many will always ask what are the meanings behind these lines and creases. Do you know that these lines can reveal a lot more about you than you can imagine. / palm reading diagram
Palmistry is an art that dates back to many thousands of years ago. In the olden days palmistry was used as a form of divination to tell about the past and future of a person. However, in our modern society, that is driven by science and practicality, telling about the past and future can be something that is viewed as too superstitious. Thus many palmist or palm reader has turned this form of art into something that is more scientific and also towards reading the human psychology. / palm reading diagram
When you look at your own palms, you can undeniably see a lot of differences between your palms and your friends' palms. If you can do some measurement, you will see the differences in terms of the shapes and sizes. Your fingers may be longer or shorter, your palm may be longer or shorter, your lines can start from different points or end in different points. It is with all these differences that we tell the differences in the personality from a person to another. / palm reading diagram
What is palmistry? / palm reading diagram
In simple terms, palmistry refers to the study of the hands' shapes and sizes and the study of the lines and creases. By studying the hand, we can use it to determine the personality of a person. By interpreting the markings and signs, we can also "foretell" (more on this topic, see my article on "Why Palmistry") the future of a person. Logically, when we can foretell the future, we would also be able to tell about the past of a person. / palm reading diagram

Basic process of palmistry / palm reading
When we look at a palm, we will need to look at it from many perspectives, first we will need to determine the basic shapes of the palm, then the fingers, then the thumb. We will next need to compare the length and shapes of the palm and the fingers with one another. Different features of the hands would have different meanings associated to it. At the same time, we will look at the starting and ending points of the main and secondary lines in the palm. Then we will determine if there are any unique signs and shapes formed by the lines. These lines will also have different meanings associated to it.
We will need to study the other features of the palm like the colour, the touch, the fingernails, the feel, the temperature, etc. All these are the things that we will need to analyse when doing a palm reading.
History of palmistry / palm reading diagram
palmistry is a form of divination that has been thought to be originated from various sources. One of the most common believe is that it came from India and slowly spread across China, Greece, Europe and some other Asian countries. For a more comprehensive description of the history of palmistry, you may want to search for "palmistry" or "palm reading" in Wikipedia. / palm reading diagram
In the west, palmistry was popularised by Count Louis Hamon (1866-1936). He is commonly known as Cheiro. Cheiro wrote many books on palmistry and recorded many of his experience in these books. If you are really serious in learning palmistry, then it will be good if you can find the reprints of his books on palmistry. Though there are not many of them, but they are very good books to start with on palmistry. / palm reading diagram, palmistry diagram
In summary, Cheiro learned palmistry directly in India and brought the knowledge with him to the west. He was commonly consulted by the people of the media (famous movie stars and singers) and that gave a lot of publicity to his abilities. He also wrote many books on palmistry and other topics and recorded much of his experiences. However, if you were to be able to find the original prints of these books, you will find that they are not too fun to read and some of the words he used are really too complex for the commoners like you and me. If you really want to go deeper into palmistry, then reading his books will often give you a different perspective on palmistry. / palm reading diagram, palmistry diagram
The advantages of palmistry / palm reading diagram, palmistry diagram
One good thing about palmistry is that it allows you to assess a person's personality in a very short time. In palmistry, no complex calculations is needed like those of astrology. At the same time, you will not need that person to tell you anything about their birth date and time. In certain countries, such information are either wrongly recorded or translated wrongly due to the different types of calendar calculations used. The palm would be a very good guide in revealing the personality and tendencies in these cases. / palm reading diagram, palmistry diagram
In our everyday lives, we can easily get a glance at other peoples palm. By knowing palmistry, you can quickly and accurately make an assessment on how the personality of that person is and from there, you may also strategise on how you want to deal with this person in the future. / palm reading diagram, palmistry diagram
The other advantage of palmistry as compared to other form of divination method is that palmistry is easy to learn and easy to apply. At the same time, unlike Face Reading Analysis, there are very few people who will alter their palms for cosmetic reasons. Palmistry is one of the most accurate way of getting an updated version of a person's personality. / palm reading diagram, palmistry diagram
Palmistry Courses / palm reading diagram, palmistry diagram
When I conduct palm reading for many of my clients, they often asked me to teach them more about palmistry. Thus with great demand, I have started to conduct palmistry courses since 2004. Personally I believe that palmistry is not a topic that you can just spend 30 minutes reading a book and suddenly be an expert in this field. Palmistry is some thing that requires time to practice and the more palms you read, the better you become. When I conduct my palmistry course, I always try to impart as much of my knowledge to my students as possible. As long as you can ask, I will answer you.
