The value and purpose of palmistry

Every one of us is born with certain potential for good and ill health. This potential is influenced by a number of factors including: our genetic information, the culture we're born into, the impressions we gather in this lifetime, and the actions we’ve taken in previous lives. Some of our health-related patterns are stronger and more ingrained, predisposing us to certain health concerns “destined” to be experienced by us. Others may have health concerns that are more malleable, and therefore changeable. In Ayurveda, we believe the lines of the palms can infer some of this information.  

This deep dive into reading the palm from the point of view of Ayurvedic medical wisdom can be incredibly useful to identify the areas that are impacting our health and longevity - giving us insight into when we can expect certain conditions to arise and we can then meet these moments with preparedness.

The Ancient Esoteric Wisdom Traditions

Palmistry is an integral part of Jyotish, the Indian divination and astrology system, that helps to determine an individual's physical, mental and karmic potential.

What has drawn people to esoteric sciences through the ages, is the desire to make the right decisions for ourselves and those around us. Plagued by poor decision making, we often become isolated and reduce our expectations, taking lower risks and attaining lower levels of satisfaction. Our life experience can become less deep, and our joy can be diminished.

The esoteric sciences, like palmistry, offer a profound opportunity to support ourselves or our clients in understanding what can be done to move towards a more positive outcome in all aspects of our lives.
