Your hands are a topographical map of your character in past, present, and future.
You can navigate your map and chart your course.
Everyone has hands. Reading hands is simple and fun. After 5500 years, it’s time for the science and art of palmistry to be reborn, initiating new opportunities for people to interact, communicate, and get to know one another.
Palmistry is a powerful path to self-consciousness. The value of palmistry is in its capacity to quickly identify basic character and behavior. The beauty of palmistry is that hands change as a person’s thinking and circumstances change. The tiniest change in a line can symbolize a huge change in a life. You can observe your successes and failures reflected in the mirrors of your hands over time.
Unfortunately, modern palmistry is still relegated to the realms of gypsy fortune-telling scams and disreputable storefronts adorned with red neon hands. Palmistry writings remain buried among the worst selling inventory of astrology, tarot, and occult divination books, hidden on the bottom corner shelf of the metaphysical section in major bookstores. Most palmistry books are cookbooks filled with inaccurate information and inadequate illustrations cloaked in esoteric and technical jargon. It’s extremely difficult to find a palmistry book that’s readable, let alone enjoyable. The main reason palmistry is unpopular is that there’s no spokesperson.
After thousands of years in existence, astrology began to enter mass consciousness in 1968 after Linda Goodman wrote Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs (over 100,000,000 copies in print). Linda single-handedly set mass-market astrology in motion by offering practical information in compelling and fun ways. Suddenly, everyone was asking, “What’s your sun sign?” Sun sign columns began appearing in consumer magazines and newspapers worldwide. Ironically, while astrology symbolizes potential character, talents, and challenges, hands reveal true character and what we are doing with our talents and challenges.
Palmistry must be propelled toward a tipping point. In order to educate, I’ll be required to simplify complex ideas at first, and build nuanced understanding as reader’s comprehension of concepts develops. As with any pedagogical process, readers must be exposed to key basic elements before going more in-depth, and then the relationship between these elements can be explored, leading finally to the ability to synthesize and make meaning. To this end, I’ve written Real Palmistry. I’ll try to stay electronic for as long as possible (many people ask, “When are you going to turn your e-book into a real book?”). A few trees may have to be sacrificed to get more people to look at their own and each other’s hands.
My plan is to give everyone a helping hand, their own. I promise to maintain my integrity and dignity in the process. Hopefully, “Let me see your hands” will be a new catchphrase for the 21st Century. The following is a partial list of strategies and venues which I am using to promote palmistry. If you have any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, insights, or advice, please feel free to comment.

2. Online Media: youtube, vimeo, fashion magazines
3. Consumer magazines
4. Blogging, books

If you’ve been reading my blog or have read my book, you know that you can ask your hands questions like: Who am I? What do I value? What do I think? How do I feel? How do I best use my will power? How can I be healthier? How’s my marriage? How can I be more creative? What’s my philosophy? What’s my purpose? How can I be more spiritual? What’s next?
I’ve begun sharing Real Palmistry Stories in my blog, which will eventually become a book. Anyone interested in being featured can send me a hi-res photo of themselves (like the one above), their age, and questions like “What can I do to…?” “How can I…?”
Please don’t ask, “What’s going to happen?”, “Will I be famous?” or “Will I win the lotto?” Avoid questions with “Yes” or “No” answers. Include relevant background information relating to the question.
Priceless knowledge and insight await you in plain sight at the ends of your arms. Knowing yourself places your free will and destiny exactly where they belong, back in your own hands.
