How often we gaze at our palms, wondering what’s written in our destiny? This curiosity and fear about our future is what this one practice survives on.
Palmistry, or Cheiromancy, in Greek, is the study of palms using features like lines and mounts on our palms.
It’s a practice that’s famous worldwide, but followed and respected mainly in India, China, Egypt, Tibet and Greece. It dates back to 3000 BC and is considered a science by many. A science based mainly on assumptions, it apparently predicts the future—how long will a person live, what will be his chosen profession, when will he find his life partner, and also, when he will die.
Is Palmistry a Science?
Most often, the palmist insists he has done an extensive study of the subject and hence is an expert at foretelling our future. They believe that we can learn a lot about a person just by looking at their palms. They explain how there is a connection between the mind and the body and how positive and negative thinking can affect a person’s Life
Does Palmistry really help?
If we looked at it practically, then this one is not something that could benefit us in any way. The lines, bumps, shapes on our palms may be connected to the various points within our body, but that cannot predict our future as the information is not authentic.
It basically depends on one’s belief and how one is psychologically affected by it and ready to give in to his beliefs. One can never predict how long one will live or when one will die based on the lines of one’s palms. Similarly, one’s fate never changes either, but the lines and the mounts on our palms change throughout our life.
Palmistry is an art that feeds a person’s curiosity to know his future. For some it is a science and for others it’s superstition. How much one believes in it, and how much one believes in himself and his ability to face Life is what marks the difference in the two.
