If you do not believe in the paranormal or metaphysical please do not leave mean or rude comments on the Instructable, thank you :)  We realize the metaphysical & paranormal can be emotional for people who want to judge or testify for religion but we're not here doing that to others so please don't do it to us.  We're new to Instructables but not the world of the paranormal.

The belief that reading a person's palm reveals a pre-destined life is far from a new idea. This practice has existed since Biblical times, many believing that 2nd Corinthians shows that God sealed every person's palm with their destiny.

2 Corinthians 1:21-22 "Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come."

As the witch hunt years sank into Europe some European countries outlawed the practice of Palmistry (such as England) and was condemned by the Catholic Church.  However, other countries (such as Germany) embraced this "seal" of destiny and offered it as courses in their universities.

<p>i don't have lines 4 and 5</p>
Two questions: Does it matter which hand? 'Cause I'm left-handed and you don't see left handed People nowadays. And where did you get this from? It's Extraordinary! 5*'s and Subscription...
You didn't mention anything about hairy palms which is just as valid an indicator as lines etc.<br />
This shows what the lines/areas are and what they represent, but not how to *read* them.. what do different characteristics on my lifeline mean? which side is the start? O.o<br />
Sure!&nbsp; You want to always read your dominant hand.&nbsp; You will find if you place your hands side by side that the lines are usually similiar if not exactly the same but they can be higher or lower on one hand from another.<br /> <br /> You want to read your dominant hand because it is the &quot;chosen&quot; hand.&nbsp; If you are ambidextrous choose the hand that you tend to favor more often.<br /> <br /> There are several techniques that exist but the most common is to read from left to right.&nbsp; The placement of lines on your palm may fall into several regions of the hand and you want to identify where the line on the left-hand side starts and move into the right-hand side for completion (so it starts in region 1 and ends in region 2 for example).&nbsp; Some lines stay within a region.<br /> <br /> My suggestion when starting out is to trace your hand on a piece of paper and then use that as&nbsp;a notepad to write out what you are reading as you go.
I've always wanted to know what my palm reads...<br /> <br /> thanks&nbsp;
