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.
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…
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.
Now focus on just your heart line.
If the line…
- Extends from the side of your hand and ends below the index finger: You’re content with your love life.
- Extends from the side of your hand and ends below the middle finger: You’re selfish when it comes to love.
- Extends from the side of your hand and ends in-between your middle and ring finger: You fall in love easily.
- Is straight and short: You are not that interested in romance.
- Is close to your fingers: You are a passionate and sometimes jealous person.
- Goes all the way across: You bottle up your emotions.
- Touches your life line: Your heart gets broken easily.
- Curves up towards the index finger: You are outwardly affectionate.

Take a gander at the horizontal line just under the heart line, this is your head line.
If the line…

Now look at your life line, the vertical line closest to your thumb. Keep in mind that this line actually says nothing about how long you will actually live you life.

Finally, check out your fate line, the vertical line that goes straight up the middle of your palm.
