Palm Reading for Beginners

This book is intended to be a practical, hands-on, easy-to-understand introduction to palmistry. Palmistry is possibly the oldest of the occult sciences. It is still extremely popular today, and a knowledge of the basics of this subject can enhance your life in many ways. For instance, it will help you to understand your motivations and desires, as well as those of others. You may discover talents that you did not realise you had. Perhaps, a subject that interested you as a child, but was then discarded, should be looked at again, if your hands show that you have a talent in that area. Palmistry will enable you to help others to make choices that will benefit them, and are in keeping with the potentials shown on their hands. Many young people do not know what sort of career to go into. By examining their hands you will be able to give sound advice on the fields that they would be happiest - and most successful - in.

Knowledge of palmistry will increase your popularity and enable you to meet many interesting people. It may even become a career. Unfortunately, many of the books that are already available are highly technical and make the subject more difficult than necessary. This book is called Palm Reading for Beginners and is aimed at interested people who have no prior knowledge of the subject. By the time you have finished reading this book you will be able to read palms and help people with the information you impart.

You will also learn how to take palm prints. This will enable you to build up a valuable resource library of palms that you can refer to as you continue your study into this fascinating and useful subject.

Palmistry is probably the oldest of the occult sciences, and as such, people have studied it for thousands of years. The basic principles of palmistry are just as valid today as they were when Aristotle wrote a book on the subject for Alexander the Great 2,600 years ago. In fact, there is nothing in his book that a modern-day palmist would disagree with. Consequently, millions of people throughout the ages have benefited by having their palms read. A good palm reading can provide valuable insights into people's character and give insights into how they will act in any given situation. Consequently, palm reading reveals a map of the human mind, and a good palm reader can effectively guide people in the right direction. This is a book for beginners, and my intention is to introduce you to the subject and inspire you to become a caring, sensitive reader who will be able to help others.

I have included some more advanced material (particularly the chapter on dermatoglyphics - the skin ridge patterns) that is part of my own research, but most of the book is devoted to covering all the basic information on the subject.

Palmistry is a living subject and research is going on into it all the time. Consequently, it is becoming more and more useful. A good example is in determining a person's predisposition towards certain illnesses. Another is in psychological analysis. Both of these important aspects of palmistry have occurred during the last fifty years and have changed the shape of palmistry for ever.

What you learn about this fascinating subject will help you understand yourself and others. You will understand your own drives and motivations, and be better able to accept the motivations of others. You will become more aware of your own capabilities and consequently be able to advance further in your career. You will be able to observe the changes in your hands (and those of others) that occur when you change the way in which you look at things. This will help you enormously in self-development, self-awareness and self-knowledge.

The wonderful thing about palmistry is that you don't have to psychic - you don't have to burn incense and candles - you don't have to wear a turban or scarves and tons of jewelry - to be a top-notch palm reader. This ancient method of reading character and destiny is practiced every day by thousands of people like you.

Palm Reading for Beginners is a complete, fully illustrated guide to reading the story in anyone's palm. From the basic meanings of the lines to the fine points of markings and complexion, these clear descriptions will have you revealing secrets and foretelling the future from the first day.

Whether your interest is casual or serious, be prepared for a rich, rewarding experience when you reach across to someone and say, "Show me your palm."
