For many centuries, man has been mystified by the science of palm reading or palmistry. It is true that many people have been trying to unravel the secret of palm reading in vain and taking a crack at it in an effort to prove it as rubbish. Yet over the years, nothing has happened to diminish the stature that palmistry has achieved in the minds of the common man.
On the other hand, the study of hand lines has been wrongly associated with black magic, errors and other superstitions that have gathered in the minds of the uninformed. These myths should be demystified for you to understand the gravity and benefits of this great science for the humankind. Let us look at the top five myths about palmistry that exist today and try to demystify them:
1. Palmistry can predict your future:
You can hear people predicting your life by just looking at your hands - mark that they have completely no knowledge about the science. If someone says that your life is going to be short just because your life line is short, stop panicking and put on your thinking caps. Palmistry, unlike common perceptions, is not the trick that foretells how many children you will have or reveal the spouse of your name. Palmistry actually shows you the current patterns and trends to tell you better the natural outcomes. It is eventually your own thoughts and actions that determine what your future will be like.
2. Hand Analysis is forbidden in the Bible:
It would be a good idea to actually read the Holy Scriptures and understand the meaning of the words using a biblical concordance handy. Though many like to play up the 'forbidden by church' wisdoms, the fact remains that most Pope in the Middle Ages exhibited an interest in Palmistry along with astrology and alchemy. Also the earliest manuscripts of palmistry were actually found in the European monasteries which support these revelations.
3. Your index finger predicts your spirituality:
In Palmistry, the index finger is an important sign of the body. It relates primarily to authority, ambition and ego of a human being. These are in no way the symbols that depict a person's spirituality. In short, a person's index finger cannot reveal the depth of sacred and religious thoughts of a person.
4. There is no scientific basis for palmistry:
No other myth can be more far from the truth. The lines of your hand represent the graphic picture of the circuits in your brain. The nerve groups that control your hand lies at the epicenter of the brain and that is why palmistry is such a big success.
5. Prehistoric cultures practiced palmistry:
Though most people love to advocate this theory, there are no actual facts to support such a theory. We can speculate on this subject as there is nothing written or otherwise evidence left by our ancestors about palmistry.
Today Palmistry is one of the most misunderstood branches of psychic sciences in the world. Understanding the science of palmistry will help you to better arm yourself against such mythical errors.
