About Hand Analysis

Getting Your Hands Read

There is nothing about Hand Analysis that needs be mystical or mysterious. Anyone can benefit from a hand reading. No special gift is required to do it. The hands contain coded information relating to a person's character and Life Purpose. Learning the code is like learning any other foreign language. Study is required, but when mastered, the hand shapes, fingerprints, and lines in the palm can be read like reading a newspaper.

That being said, hand reading is totally mystical and life altering; an experience unlike any other. Because each pair of hands are a self portrait drawn from deep within, to have your hands read is to lift the veil, to stare deep into the truth mirror, to stand revealed before your very eyes. Hand analysis shows you who you are today and who you can be. 

Hand Analysts examine the overall shape of your palm and fingers to determine your basic temperament, your thumb to see how you "get things under your thumb," and the twelve zones of the fingers to see personality strengths and weaknesses. The lines in your palm will be examined to determine your basic wiring: the type of emotional system you have, what kind of computer you possess, which nervous system type you are, etc. Talents and hidden motivations will be revealed. 

Both hand shape and lines change over time, but there is a part of your hands unaltered from five months prior to birth: your fingerprints. Like an acorn containing within it the potential of the oak tree it may become, your fingerprints reveal the potential life that will bring you your highest level of Soul satisfaction: your Life Purpose

By comparing the original imprint revealed in your fingerprints with the dynamic map of your personality and character shown in the lines and hand topography, a hand reading gives perspective to your current circumstances in relation to the big picture of your life story. This provides you with more information about yourself, so that you can make new choices and start living into the fulfillment of your Soul's Agenda!
