World famous palmist Cheiro insisted, “Character is Destiny.” He believed that, by discovering more about our character through palmistry, we can trace out our destiny in advance, and find the right plan to be used at the right time.
Cheiro was an amazing palmist, clairvoyant and gifted. He was also a humanitarian. His strongest desire was to see this strange study taken up as a useful and practical means of obtaining an exact judgment of people’s character, qualities, and hidden tendencies.
“I think that if all parents knew something of Palmistry,” said Cheiro, “the vast majority of children would be more usefully trained and their proper tendencies developed.”
Cheiro felt it was often too late when a child discovered some tendency never suspected by his or her parents. “It is no wonder so few persons find their true vocations in the world, when we remember the random, haphazard way in which children are brought up,” Cheiro said, “educated for the most part in some scholastic mill that grinds down all to the same dead level of mediocrity, and then turns them into the Army, the Church, or into trade.” How beneficial it would be, he speculated, if children knew from small kid days what their strengths and weaknesses were.
Cheiro earnestly hoped the study of hands would someday be taken up by the masses. It was from this standpoint that he interested such men as Gladstone, Professor Max Muller of Oxford, Lord Russell, King Edward VII, and too many others to mention.
Why Read Palms?
Like Cheiro, many palmists believe readings are a way of knowing more about ourselves or others. It has been a practice since ancient days that involves analyzing the features of one’s hand.
Looking Through the Lines of One’s Palm
Many palm readers suggest the main palm lines are the means of analyzing a person. The dominant hand is usually used. The reason behind the use of the dominant hand is that it is the one usually written with or used most of the time. Palm readings also need a careful observation of one’s hand shape. People’s hand shapes also show character about them. Different persons possess different hand shapes (more about this tomorrow when we discuss H IS FOR HEAD, HEART, AND HANDS.) Hand shapes dictate what elements affect us, whether they be air, wind, water or fire. The four major lines intersecting our palms are the heart, head, destiny and life lines.
Why Get Your Palm Read?
Palm reading is usually sought after by those who desire self-knowledge. It can provide insight and information about one’s character as well as one’s future. Also, palm reading provides the clients with useful tips on accomplishing challenges he or she faces or will face in life.
Significance of palm reading
One should utilize palm reading for its positive benefits. The power of divination through palm reading can be experienced when one believes in its power. (As the Bible says, “It is given to you as you believe.”) Knowledge about the future will provide satisfaction and confidence. Some people merely seek entertainment through palm reading. Others can discover some hidden talents, skills and personality traits which they can use to great advantage in facing life challenges ahead of them.
