FAQ

What is palmistry?

Also known as chiromancy and hand analysis, palmistry is both an ancient art and a science. It involves exploring and interpreting the following:

  • The shape, size, flexibility and texture of the hands and fingers (chirognomy).
  • The palmar creases, or lines, in the hand, as well as other markings. (chiromancy).
  • The fingerprints and other dermatoglyphics (skin-ridge patterns).

Can you see how long I’ll live?

Thank goodness I can’t! The myth that the life line indicates how long you will live is completely false. Perhaps there was some validity to that idea in the dark ages, but with breakthroughs in medicine and information technology, the length of the life line has no bearing on the length of life. The life line illustrates the vitality of the person, the strength of his or her root chakra, and how deeply and fully he or she embraces life.

Is everything already predestined, or do I have free will?

One of the most important things to understand is we all have free will. The lines in the hands will, and do, change as we live our lives. We make decisions that alter the path we are on, and the lines in our hands adjust to reflect the changes. In palmistry, the only things that cannot change are our fingerprints, which are formed between 4 ½ and 5 months in the womb. Really important information, including your life purpose and life lesson(s), is embedded in your fingerprints. the thing is, we still have free will. You do not have to fulfill your life purpose, but true happiness will be elusive if you don’t.

Is palm reading scientific or psychic?

Strictly speaking, hand analysis is a non-predictive form of palmistry. A hand analyst will study the hand to discover life purpose, personality traits, strengths and weaknesses, and other factors about who you are and why you are here. You do not need to be psychic to be a hand analyst, as it relies on the deciphering science. There are also palmists that do not rely on the science of hand analysis at all, but instead look to their intuitive talents to read the client. The problem with a purely psychic reading is that it relies on the ability of the reader to tap into the client, who may be difficult to read. I believe the best palmists have a firm grasp of the science of hand analysis coupled with an intuitive or psychic nature.

Can you predict the future?

I can predict some things conditionally. Because everyone has free will, the path you are on today can change tomorrow. By studying your hands, I can see where you are headed if you continue on the same path, but you are the master of your destiny. For example, as a hand analyst I can see relationships and love in the hand, but not what a lover would look like. I may see an upcoming obstacle line but not know the exact nature of the obstacle. That said, I have learned to accept my psychic intuitive nature. If information comes to me, I am happy to share it. For instance, as a hand analyst, I could see that a client had an affinity for nature, but as a psychic I clearly saw a golden retriever around her. This client had two golden retrievers that she took on long walks in nature.

Why should I get a palm reading?

You will truly be amazed at the information that can be found in your hands. Hands don’t lie. They are a map of who you are and what you came here to do. The hands illustrate why you think the way you do, how you love and want to be loved. Your life purpose and lessons are coded into your fingerprints. Talent, gifts, and challenges are etched into your hands. Much of what I can tell you is an affirmation of what you know inside to be true. Having an objective voice confirm your feelings and help you plot a course to living at your highest and most satisfying potential is invaluable.

Why should I come to you for a reading?

There are many wonderful palmists in the world, and I count several friends among them. There are also really bad readers out there. Even worse, some predatory “readers” will tell you they need money from you to remove curses and other such nonsense. Good readers do not take advantage of their clients. So, why me? I am an intuitive healer and advisor with a passion for palmistry. I have been in this business for decades, and have read thousands of hands. I have studied the methods of Richard Unger and taken classes through the International Institute of Hand Analysis and The American Academy of Hand Analysis. I have also studied predictive palmistry, and my readings are a blend of that knowledge. I sometimes incorporate other divination tools like astrology, numerology, and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to give my clients a truly comprehensive reading. I am excited to read for my clients and honored they allow me to share the wealth of information in their hands with them.

What is EFT?

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It is also sometimes referred to as “Tapping.” It involves lightly tapping on several places on the body (meridian points) in order to clear the energy behind many emotional and physical obstacles. Often a client will have an issue connected to an event, or life lesson, that is holding them back. This painless method can be an effective tool to help the client move forward.

How often should I get a reading?

This is at the discretion of the client, but there are hours of information to explore in your hand. Some clients see me when there are events happening they want clarity on. Others come once a year, like an annual physical. I like to print the hand so we can track the changes that occur. I enjoy pointing out the movement in the lines to the client over time, so we can discuss the meaning behind the changes.
