What is Palmistry?

By Messengers of the Spirit

Historically, palmistry is a form of divination. Information about a person’s personality traits, talents, and interests are revealed through analysis of their hands. The art of palmistry is learned through the study of markings and haracteristics of the hands. Most people associate the lines on the palm as the focus of a palm reading. However, it is the whole hand that will be analyzed by a professional palmist. Palm lines, the shape of the hands and fingers, spaces between fingers, colorings of the hands and fingernails, size of mounts, etc. will all be taken into consideration.
The sum of all of these characteristics will tell a complete story: 

*Skin tone (pale, pink, red)
* Skin texture (ranges from fine to very rough)
* Thickness or thinness of hands
* Knuckle size
* Length and width of fingernails
* Shape of fingernails (round, oval, square, or spatulate)
* Shape of fingertips (square, round, tapered, spatulate)
* Length or shortness of individual fingers
* Flexibility and resistance in finger movement
* Palm quadrants
* Palm shape (square, round, oblong, spatulate)
* Center of palm (sunken, flat, or plump)
* Palm mounts and markings
* Palm lines
What to Expect from a Palm Reading
The client is generally seeking insight in the way of career opportunities, romance possibilities, or spiritual concerns and may feel somewhat anxious. A good palmist will take care to ease any nervousness associated with having your hands handled and inspected so closely. No matter how intuitive a palmist is, he is not a fortune-teller. A reputable palmist will stay clear of making off the cuff predictions or alarming clients with tales of prophecy. He will give an overall analysis after exploring both your hands. There should be no pointing out of character flaws, but rather suggestions may be given concerning areas that can be improved upon. For example, the palm reader won’t tell you that your palm indicates that you are a “lazy dog” but might gently say something like your nature is laid back or that you struggle with a lack of motivation. The palmist who remains open-minded and answers client questions honestly and objectively is a treasure. Also, a well-trained palmist can recognize signs in hands that may indicate that your health is compromised, if so he may suggest you seek medical attention.

Eve of Samhain Spell to Connect with the Spirit World

 

by Susan Sheppard

You will need:

  • a white candle,
  • matches
  • a mirror

At dusk, go to an area or a place you feel the spirits are especially powerful.

Make contact by walking about and allowing your mind to roam.

Light your white candle and peer into it saying:

“Clear as midnight, the spirits are bright. Ghostly curiosity brings you to me. As a form takes shape, I am not asleep. Spirit awake, take your shape.”

Let the candle flicker.

Glance into the mirror and look past your shoulder. Do you see mists or lighted balls in the reflection? This is how ghosts typically appear.

Return to the area on the next three nights.

Take some pictures. At home, place your mirror face down. Mirrors trap spirits. Some spirits will track you as you search for their reflections. If you want your ghost to leave, just say so. Follow this up by putting a broom over your transom and burning sage. …

This Is My Truth!

What an amazing thought. Group of thoughts. Poem. The author and the girl reciting this are unknown. Did a lot of searching and couldn’t find any information, just the video posted in several places. Decided it needed to be here also. Enjoy and take heed of the hope wisdom.

I post this in hopes that I am not breaking any copyright laws or such but I thought this needs to be shared everywhere. I looked everywhere and could not find anyone claiming rights to this video
