Secrets and Benefits of Palmistry
Palmistry can be a better guide to predict the harmony and inharmony in marriage of the opposite sexes intending to marry. Nepoleon believed that human face can deceive but never the hand. Hitler of Germany used to consult occultists about his future. The forensic and criminal investigators identify the criminals through their hand prints. A rational mind will thus find himself convinced that Palmistry is a science providing a treasure of useful information.
Palmistry is also called Chirosophy, has two branches, Cheirognomy and Chiromancy. Cheirognomy is interpretation of the make up of the hands and fingers, while Chiromancy is the study of various lines and signs on the hand to estimate the future and past events.
Let us first have a little more idea of Cheirognomy. A doctor diagnoses the disease first by observation. If the tongue is thickly coated, the patient does not evacuate satisfactorily and has constipation. Yellowness of the white of eyes, denotes jaundice. Similarly the palmist gets an idea of basic instincts of a person by the make up of his hands and fingers. The basic instincts are one’s biological demands like thirst, hunger, sex and other sub-conscious reactions like anger, fear etc. Besides this Chirognomy helps the palmist to gauge basic health defects. For example colour of the hand denotes one’s level of energy and vitality. Actually the shape of the hand is very much linked with the development of one’s brain. Fingers certainly tell about certain health abnormalities. The mount of Venus is linked with sexual passions, generosity etc. and is also known to be the third phalange of the thumb. In case of venereal diseases and diseases of sex glands, the thumb is affected. In frogs, during their mating season, the thumb swells and increases in diameter because of great sexual arousal.
The shortness of fingers denotes slow functioning of pituitary gland, the master gland that controls other endocrine glands and hence the person suffers from hypothyroidism, abnormal functioning of sex glands etc. The result of shortness of fingers is that the person becomes restless, hasty and impetuous. Abnormal development of the fore-finger indicates excessive pride and diseases of respiratory organs. The middle finger denotes gloom, melancholy and stomach conditions particularly of liver. The third finger tells about functioning of kidneys and any thinness denotes aberrations of filteration system. The troubles of sex glands can be anticipated by the deformity, shortness or leanness of small finger.
The papillary ridges on the hand are formed during one’ fourth month of foetal life in the womb. Any viral infection then to the pregnant mother creates permanent changes in the ridge pattern on the hands of foetus denoting physical and mental abnormalities, asthma, ulcer, rheumatism, kidney troubles, nervous disorders etc.
The other branch of Cheirosophy i.e., Cheiromancy deals with the psychological aspects as shown by one’s hands. Dr. Eugene Schemann of U.S. says that the three main flexions or lines are formed during the fourth month of one’s foetal life by the movement of the thumb and fingers. The lines on the hand have an intimate link with the subconscious mind of the person. According to Hindu philosophy the process of rebirth continues because of unfulfilled desires of previous births; this in combination with the force of one’s previous birth’s deeds makes his soul. i.e., sub-conscious energy to change the old worn out carrier (human body) and occupy a new one through the process of rebirth. According to Vedic philosophy Moksha or final emancipation is the situation when the subconscious mind has no desires left and then the soul merges with the Super Consciousness that controls whole of this exercise.
The force of Karma that will manifest through our subconscious mind is the destiny of this birth and appears on the palm as lines and signs. Thus the lines and signs on the hand are the electro-cardiograph of our subconscious mind. A palmist is like a physician who interprets this electro-cardiograph of our subconscious mind.
As there is continuous trend of changes in cultural, religious and material values of the society; accordingly the lines undergo changes in their interpretive factors in tune with the changes of social values. Therefore older readings of the lines do not fit well with modern values.
It is believed that the science of Palmistry originated in India and spread to other parts of the world through cultural and social exchanges. In ancient Greece and West there were great thinkers and philosophers, who accepted new knowledge on its merits and further developed it. Palmistry is one such knowledge.
