IT’S IN HIS HANDS
True Magazine (Malta)
Hand analysis is a modern science that is fast gaining popularity among young people wanting to attract - and keep - their soul mate...
Marion Gale, the Canadian writer who studied hand analysis in Europe and America, and is now living in Malta, explains to Vinnie Camilleri what it is all about.
To look at your hands, you wouldn’t think that they contain such important information as which profession you're likely to choose or who you're compatible with when it comes to relationships.
And yet, Marion Gale - originator of the world's first instant hand reading deck, the Love Deck™ - assures me that it is indeed true.
Your hands, it appears, can tell people a great deal about you: talents, character, health, and your romantic nature are all reflected in the hand shape, line patterns and skin ridges.
Palmistry, as it was known by most people in the early days, has long been associated with gypsy fortunetelling.
All this changed in the 20th Century when psychologists at some of the world's leading universities undertook to validate the meaning of many features found in the hands. This is the reason why practitioners today prefer to call it modern hand analysis.
Among other conclusions, the studies established that hands are controlled by a larger part of the brain cortex than any other part of the body. If you use your imagination, you can actually think of your hands as the visible part of your brain.
Body chemistry, your nervous system, and genetics, also influence the shaping of your hands throughout your life.
Have you ever met a great guy and wanted to know if he's "the one"? Or felt that you were not quite sure that your job was really "you"?
What Marion Gale has done is to take such common questions and provide guidance with her original card deck called the Love Deck™. It consists of fifty-two cards, almost like a book in a box.
"Reading hands can bring you closer to others and give you the insight needed to help sort out your personal relationships. For example, a simple thing like understanding your boyfriend's fingerprint pattern and his heart line can give you a whole new view of the man you love.
It will help you understand why he's too shy to hold your hand in public or why you adore his thoughtfulness. All the cards that match your hands and his are a vivid snapshot of character, personality, and talents. It's all laid out for you!" Marion explains.
Sounds confusing? Not really. In Marion's words, hands are like signatures: very personal and totally unique. This applies not only to your fingerprints but to your whole hand as well.
The cards can be used to learn more about yourself and your personality. And of course, you do a bit of discreet discovery about potential partners, and even friends, by matching the cards to their hands.
“You can actually get so good at it that you can read a man’s character from just the back of his hand in a darkened bar!” Marion claims.
"I have always been fascinated by human behaviour and combining a lifetime of personal observation with my knowledge of hand analysis has been very rewarding.
"But after editing several books, such as Hand Psychology, The Palmist's Companion and Your Career in Your Hands, I realised that this method involves too much time and trouble, so I created the deck, an easy and efficient way to help anyone learn about the most important things in the hands. The beauty of it is that with the cards anyone can do it instantly."
