The kind of music we listen to, our personal style, and our favorite foods say a lot about who we are. Yet, to discover who we truly are, you don’t need any kind of outside stimuli. All you have to do is take the time to notice certain things about yourself.

Take the way you sleep or the specific colors that you are psychologically drawn to. Your predilections are powerful indicators of your true self.

Another interesting insight can be discovered in the palm of your hand. Open it and take a look at the lines. Four of those lines unveil secrets about our strengths, flaws, experiences, and where we are headed in life.

The art of palm reading is called palmistry and has been practiced for centuries in Asia, Persia, Ancient Israel, and Babylonia. Palm reading was taken very seriously by many significant minds that have sculpted the course of our history like Alexander the Great and Aristotle, who once stated: “Lines are not written into the human hand without reason. They emanate from heavenly influences and man’s own individuality.” Hippocrates, an ancient Greek physician and one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine, even used palmistry to aid his clinical procedures. Mark Twain, Grover Cleveland, and Thomas Edison also favored palm reading and would travel to London, England to have their palms read by the famous reader Cheiro, who studied under gurus in India.

Yet, if you’re interested in learning how to read your palm, there’s no need buy a ticket for a transatlantic flight. All you have to do is learn a few important basics and open up your hand…

Look at both your palms. If the lines are different on both palms, it means you have worked hard to change your basic nature. Now focus on your dominant hand or the one you write with.

Focus on the more dominant hand and locate you heart, head, life, and fate line. Keep in mind that the horizontal lines need to be read from the thumb side across and verticals ones from the wrist up.
