Palmist Cheiro said about the lifeline: ‘the line of life relates to the natural length of life’

When Cheiro – the ‘Godfather of palmistry’ – died he had a pretty long life line. But did his life line correspond with his age at death???

Researchers developed a formula to find the ‘age at death’ via the lifeline only!

Newrick, Affie & Corrall described in 1990:

“Palmistry has been the focus of heated argument since the first mention of its techniques in Indian and Chinese manuscripts of at least 3000 years ago. The science and popularity of the subject were brought to their peak by society palmist Louis Hamon, either better known by his pseudonym of Cheiro.”

One of the most famous theories of Cheiro was:

“… the lifeline relates to the length of life.”

In 1990 British 3 researchers performed a study focussed on the length of the lifeline in 100 cadavers. They developed an interesting method – with a piece of rope – to measure the lifelines, and the result were very significant: Cheiro’s theory appeared to be confirmed by the length of the lifelines of those 100 death people!

The ‘double blind’ study was done with great care, and the results found the newspapers all over the world.

How come that the study was never continued with a follow-up research?

“In good hands – shortcoming of the concentration of mind, attention, self-control.

In the hands of capricious and nervous people – illness.”

Palmistry - the length of the life line

Palmistry - the length of the life line

“Mr. Palmist, what’s the meaning of the length of the ‘life line’?”

The life line is one of the most well-known features of Palmistry. Most people are able to find the life line in their own hands.

Some guidelines from the international Palmistry literature about the ‘life line’ (or ‘line of life’):

William G. Benham writes in ‘The Benham Book of Palmistry’ (1900):

(p. 467): “The line of Life indicates the health of the subject during the various periods of life, his physical strength in general, and whether he lives during each period on his nervous force or relies upon muscular robustness. By reason of these facts, it records many detailed events in his life, and forms a basis to fall back upon when seeking confirmations and explanations of indications found elsewhere in the hand.”

Edward D. Campbell writes in ‘The Encyclopedia of Palmistry’ (1996):

(p.133): “To the Indian palmists, this line reflects the strength of the family tree. Long, clear, and well-marked life lines are indicative of strength, vitality, good immune systems, good recovery ability, resilience, and sexual energy, especially if they describe a generous curve around a healthy mount of Venus.”

Arnold Holtzman, Ph.D. writes in ‘Psychodiagnostic Chirology in Analysis and Therapy’ (2004):

(p.116): “The tenar line: ego drive discipline. This line is identified almost universally as the line of life. And while tradition and folklore have their place in any culture this very unfortunate labeling has contributed to countless tragedies over the years. Books have been published in which the assertion was made that the length of this line is an indicator of the length of the person’s life, and many a death can be attributed to a palmist’s stated certainty that the subject would not life beyond a given year. It is imperative, then, to establish at the start that there is no link whatsoever between this line and the length of one’s life.”
