Introduction to Real Palmistry

Priceless information about your physical, mental, and emotional health is in plain sight at the ends of your arms. Your character, values, thinking, feelings, will power, health, relationships, creativity, philosophy, purpose, dreams, and spirituality are incarnate in your hands. As you begin to examine your hands and become more conscious of your behavior, you’ll make healthier decisions, manage your time and free will better, and fulfill more of your innate talents and potentials.

Your hands are topographical maps of your character in past, present, and future. Size, shape, and proportions of hands reveal a combination of four basic archetypes: Intuitive, Practical, Thinking, and Feeling. Hand texture, color, elasticity and consistency of skin, and flexibility of joints explain how you initiate, maintain, and adapt to new ideas and circumstances. The lengths and proportions of your fingers, knots, shapes of fingertips, and qualities of nails represent your relationships and how you are fulfilling your potentials in your world around you. Lines, dermatoglyphics (fixed skin ridge patterns), and gestures reveal more detailed information about your life choices and circumstances. The arts and crafts of interpretation and counseling require study and practice.

My mission is to give everyone a helping hand, their own. I will affirm, confirm, and inform readers of my blog about themselves in constructive, helpful, and hopeful ways. I’ll share compelling stories of clients, friends, family, and celebrities, along with photos of hands that link ancient Greek myth to present-day psycho-social narrative. As Joseph Campbell said, “Oedipus crosses 42nd Street.”

In 1968, “What’s your sun sign?” set mass-market astrology in motion. Astrology had been around for thousands of years. Suddenly, horoscopes began appearing worldwide in consumer newspapers and magazines. Linda Goodman sold over 100,000,000 sun sign books (with virtually no e-social networking). Astrology (based on an exact date, time, and place of birth) symbolizes a person’s potential character patterns and challenges. Hands reveal true character; what we’ve done, do, and are likely to do with our challenges and potentials. After 5,500 years, the ancient science and art of palmistry will be revitalized, initiating compelling new opportunities for people to interact and get to know themselves and others. A powerful new catchphrase for the 21st Century will be “Show me your hands”.

About markseltman

Over the past thirty-five years, I've read tens of thousands of hands of people of every age, gender, race, color, size, shape, career, and socio-economic diversity. I've examined the hands of celebrities, billionaires, corporate executives, and the people who work for them. I've been in charge of the psychics at special events like the massive Bloomberg Company picnic on Randall’s Island and have worked at the Mayor’s country home and at Gracie Mansion. I've been a hand reader at PR events and family gatherings for the King of PR, Howard Rubenstein. I was the hand reader at Harvey Weinstein’s spectacular wedding. I've also read the hands of Martha Stewart, Katie Couric, Star Jones, Kevin Kline, Kyra Sedgwick, Barbara Corcoran, Dave Brubeck, and Maurice Sendak, along with numerous other celebrities and their families. I've also examined hundreds of criminally insane people’s hands at a forensic psychiatric hospital in New York City over a two-year period. I've appeared on ABC The View, CBS Martha Stewart Living, CBS Evening News, FOX Good Day NY, Lifetime TV, Queens, NPR and WNYC. I've been featured in the NY Times, NY Newsday, The Daily News, The Village Voice, New York Magazine, INSTYLE Magazine, Family Circle, Modern Bride, Manhattan User’s Guide, and other periodicals. Because of my credentials in design and technology as well as my extensive experience with public appearances on television, radio, and in the print media, I'm uniquely qualified to promote palmistry. I offer five-minute reflections at special events, counsel countless couples, raise funds for diverse causes such as AIDS, Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis, Schizophrenia, Arts Education, and the Environment. I taught Metaphysics 101 at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in NYC for five years and have also spoken, offered workshops, and taught classes at the New York Open Center, Learning Annex, Source of Life Center, Hunter College, Pace University, Fashion Institute of Technology, Marymount Manhattan College, Theosophical Society, East West Bookstore, Lower East Side Tenement Museum, and The National Design Museum in NYC. I also have a private practice with over 1,000 clients.
