This practice is seen as strange by some and downright silly by most. However, what many people do not understand is that it has a long history and what is considered in the media is a misrepresentation of what palm reading truly is.
Palm reading or palmistry can be traced back to ancient art several thousand years. It was born from Hindu astrology, and the first evidence of the practice is found in the ancient Chinese divination texts of the I Ching. The practice spread over Asia and Europe, which is how Aristotle learned about it. He passed the knowledge to Alexander the Great who used it to judge the character of his military officers. Maybe that is why he did so well?
Now in this piece, we are specifically talking about the letter M and what it means if someone finds this on his or her hand.
Listen to the wise words of Aunty Flo.
Those that have an “M” on the hand might be attracted to careers in journalism, writing or education. Additionally, they are excellent in making money in life, simply because they generally thrive in careers which demand great self-discipline and self-motivation, they can also be drawn to management. Those with an “M” in their hand are self-motivated and thus better at making money. She goes on to state more about the letter “M.”
She further states:
In a few uncommon instances, we see the creation of the letter “M” in the palm of the subject’s hand. This is a result of the head line, heart line as well as Life line creating an “M” symbol by the combination of all lines, this signifies fortune. The letter M on the palm represents riches. To have this line means the subject likes to solve mysteries and could be attracted to careers in the legal system or politics.
The letter “M” within the subject’s palm is also an omen of:
- Fortune in life.
- Great prospect.
- Good intuition.
Furthermore, people whose palms have the letter M are masters at seeing through lies and deceit. Not much gets past them, and they almost always figure out if someone is less than honest, lying, or cheating. This sense of intuition is often stronger in women than in men, but it comes down to the individual.
It is also important to note that the hand will change over time with the person’s life situation. The lines will disappear or change to show an accurate reflection of the individual’s life.
According to Prof. Dayanand, founder of the Institute of palmistry who has authored several books on Palmistry, Spiritualism, and Psychology, 25% of the somatosensory area of the brain is related to both the hands, which indicates the close relationship between brain and hand.
Palmistry is the study of the unconscious mind. The desires, which lie dormant. Our unconsciousness builds the blocks of the future. These longings show themselves as lines of the palm. When we read lines of palm we, in fact, read the unconscious mind because only this reading of the unconscious leads one’s capability to read the future.
