Palmistry, the study of the palm of the hand, is an ancient art that finds its roots in many regions, from India to China. According to Hindu Brahmanism records, it was popular in ancient India and depicted in many murals. It’s also existed in China since the Zhou Dynasty, some 3,000 years ago! The first recorded palmistry system in China appeared in 206 BC. It’s that old!
People have been reading palms for centuries to try to determine the path their life will take, whether they will have good or bad luck, and what their innate character traits might be. Some people believe you can tell when a person will die, marry, or fall in love from the lines on their palms. Skills palmistry practitioners take in more than the major lines: they look at the palm’s shape, colour and spirals of the fingers, too.
Which Hand Do I Read For A Man And A Woman?
In ancient Chinese palm-reading theory, the right palm represents females while the left represents males. In mainstream palm reading, there is a more credible theory that recommends that both hands should be read.
Your dominant hand is thought to tell the present and the future — opportunities, challenges, and limitations — that is, where you are and where you are going in your life. And the non-dominant hand is said to reveal your inherent characteristics — personality, innate ability, and potential.
Having a deeper understanding of yourself through palm reading may help you to have more inspiration, direction, and aspirations to create your destiny.
