Palmistry and Change: Guest Post by Marion Gale

Marion Gale- at workHave you read my Palmistry and Children blog entry?  An amazing example of how a child’s hands changed because of nurture was provided by Marion Gale, friend, fellow palmist, and author of Read His Hands, Know His Heart. I asked Marion to send me a story about an older client whose hands changed and she sent me the following anecdote.


The Hands of Grace
In 1978 when Grace came to me she had been married for over 25 years. The marriage was stressful and unhappy. I could see from the number of lines in her palm that her nervous system was in over-drive. She was so tense that she could not lay her ring finger flat on the table. She was a highly sensitive woman who had married young and in haste. The children had kept her from leaving her husband but now they were all grown up.
Eight years later in 1986, having divorced and started a new career, Grace seemed like a different person. When she showed me her hands it was apparent that about 1/3 of the nervous lines had disappeared. She was so relaxed that even the ring finger easily lay flat. Grace told me that she now looked forward to the best years of her life and her hands reflected the changes she had experienced since we first met.

    • Yes, hands are certainly interesting. When issues are addressed (the younger the person the better), they can be dealt with so that an acute situation or state of being doesn’t become chronic.

  2. This is certainly true. There are always underlying issues that a child will not or cannot discuss with his parents, especially if the child has Whorl fingerprints. Yet his hands are a guide to both his innate character and his current psychological state. Looking at the hands of siblings, a good hand reader can assess the main character traits of each. Explaining these to the parents can help them to deal with future conflicts between the children. For example, the shy child may be bullied or cowed by a self-confident brother. Hands are a never-ending guide to who we are and how we handle what life throws at us. Fascinating!

      • I’m sorry, but I don’t understand the context of your question? Whorl finger prints show a certain originality, unconventionality, eccentricity, uniqueness, etc. They have little to do with whether a child can talk to his parents or not.

  3. What an interesting article, thanks for posting the link, it seems like Grace finally had a great life. The pictures of the children’s hands in the blog post, are amazing, you can tell the difference of the orphan. You can see the fear, poor thing. Have you read any good books on children’s palmistry?

  4. The younger the person the easier it is to change things that can become chronic later in life but everybody does not get in touch with mark seltman in his early childhood so does this mean that an adult when conscious of his shortcomings can’t change himself!!!

    • We were gifted as human beings with free will. Consciousness provides an opportunity to change at any time in a person’s life. It’s harder for some people to change than others. If a person’s hands and fingers are very stiff, it will take a major concerted effort to let go of outdated ideas, circumstances, habits, and behavior patterns. I believe anyone can change if they need and want to badly enough. Those changes will eventually be reflected in the person’s hands.
