Hands event at 'Welcome Collection' (Nov 26, London)

Later today (November 26) the ‘Welcome Collection’ in London presents a ‘Hands’ event where you can get a palm reading! Imagine… how would your life look like without your hands? We sense, create and communicate with our hands. A social event for the incurably curious and celebrate these vital parts of our bodies across four floors of Wellcome Collection!!

From medicine to mesmerism, magic to mannerisms, visitors will find out about the curious history of digits, palms, fingers and thumbs, and put their own to use, as we celebrate the organs that shape the world around us. We will have scientists, artists, palmists and magicians at hand for discussions, performances and, of course, hands-on activities, all designed to make us look afresh at our body. ‘Manipulate’, ‘manoeuvre’ and ‘manufacture’ are all words deriving from the Latin word ‘manus’, meaning hand. These creative appendages allow us to make, touch and feel, but they also hold mystical and cultural significance. For one night only, visitors can explore a digital age that goes back millennia.

Example of a 'Moon whorl' on the palmar hypothenar zone.

The ‘Moon whorl’ a common characteristic in Down syndrome & schizophrenia

The ‘whorl on the mount of Moon’ (a.k.a. the ‘hypothenar whorl’) is known as one of the mysterious characteristics that can only sometimes be found in the human hand. In 1943 Cummins & Midlo reported in their famous ‘Finger Prints, Palms & Soles’ statistics for a sample of 1281 German males. They found the ‘true whorl’ on the hypothenar in only 0.7% of right hands and 0.5% of left hands!

What do we know about the ‘Moon whorl’?

A few quote from the original article:

“While the classic palmistry literature describes that the ‘hypothenar whorl’ (a.k.a. ‘whorl on mount of Moon’) can be recognized as a sign for finding a ‘highly imaginative person’, various scientific studies have indicated that dermatoglyphic whorls on the mount of moon are linked with Down’s syndrome + a few other medical problems.”

NEW RESEARCH FINDING ON AUTISM!

Another quote from the article:

“A study on the hands of 30 people with autism (25 men, 5 women) revealed a surprizing high percentage of a specific (very rare) variant of the ‘hypothenar whorl’ – the ‘hypothenar composite whorl’.”

Some examples of the ‘hypothenar composite whorl’ are presented below.
3 Examples of a variant of the 'hypothenar whorl': the 'hypothenar composite whorl'.

In the perspective of the fact that in the science of fingerprints the ‘composite whorl’ is related to the ‘double loop’, it is interesting to notice here that the new finding appears to confirm an earlier reported finding which pointed out that the hands of people with autism are often featured with a ‘double loop’ in the fingerprint of the pinky finger and the presence of 2 palmar loops below that 5th finger.

In cases you’re interested to learn more about the basics of fingerprint classification – the illustration below describes the 8 most common types of fingerprints (including: 2 ‘arch’ variants, 2 ‘loop’ variants, and 4 ‘whorl’ variants).

Astro-Palmistry by Johan Hjelmborg

Palmist Johan Hjelmborg is practicing Astro-Palmistry in Roskilde. He writes on his website about astro-palmistry:

“THE HAND – A LIVING HOROSCOPE”

“… Hand reading and astrology have much in common and some cultures even as “the same” seen. I.e. narrates one an Indian, that astrologer, it is immediately opposite stretch his hands and a “prediction” ask.

An important common denominator between the two are the common names. Because the finger, the lines and the various rooms of the planet palm bear names, like “Saturn’s finger,” “Mercury line,” “Venusberg” etc. But there are of course crucial differences. The knowledge of the astrological predictions laws to allow collective level, such as Earthquakes or movements on the stock exchange – which is completely outside the possibilities of a hand-held reader is located. However tell the constitution and hands over psyche as well as on Earth and very specific circumstances of the individual, ie facts on which the astrologer maximum implicitly, can describe – unless his intuition comes to help him…”

Palmist Gary Markwich describes the future for Barack Obama from his hands.

Palmist Gary Markwick

The hand of Barack Obama:

Palmist Gary Markwick was approached by a national newspaper last month to read a Hand Print of Democrat candidate Barack Obama during his UK visit.

Palmist looks at the hands of Barack Obama

Gary Marwick says about Barack‘s hands: “It was really interesting. I knew it was a politician and I was told afterwards that it was a very accurate reading of him,” said Mr Markwick, who has also read the palms of celebrities, including the former Eastenders actress Gillian Taylforth and the television and radio broadcaster Phill Jupitus. In his reading of Obama’s palm, he stated: “He will take on a new project that will affect his life and the lives of others in a big way. His success will reach a peak around the age of 48.”

Marwick added: “The Middle East is showing up here. I feel they are going to be involved with this part of the world in the future.”

But palmistry is only one aspect of Gary Markwick’s grasp of the paranormal. Having studied reiki at Barnet College and wellness therapies in India, he is also a clairvoyant and holistic therapist. He believes the future of health lies in adapting psychic techniques to work alongside mainstream medicine.

As an expert in reiki, he says its healing principles can be adapted within hospitals and among nurses to improve patient care and promote a greater understanding and support for those in need. The technique is said to work by channelling energy into a patient through touch to activate the natural healing process within the body. “I want to help others to help themselves,” said the 56-year-old, who has been studying the skills for more than 20 years.

Gary Markwick admits that he always encounters sceptics, but argues his analysis and perceptions of events shows doubters there is scope for belief. “I say nothing at all to the sceptics,” he said. “I just give them the reading and look at their faces after, and their guard goes down. There is a delight in their face and a change in them. They often say ‘I didn’t believe in it but now I feel totally different,’” he added. “I am very practical. I don’t go off and try to spook them — I am trying to promote positivity in their lives through being a therapist.”

Palmistry reading by Pat F.

Palmist Pat F. is practicing palmistry in Singapore. Pat writes on her website Palmistryworld.com:

“WHAT IS CHEIROMANCY?”

… Cheiromancy (Kee-roh-man-see) is the art of foretelling a person’s likely future by knowing his/her character from reading the palm lines in their hands. The name is derived from the Greek cheir for “hand”, and manteia for “divination”.

Cheiromancy is the old name for palmistry or palm reading, and is still in use today. It is at times spelt as Chiromancy or Kiromancy. It is also referred to as Cheirology, Chirology, or Kirology. However, Cheirology really is the study of the lines of the palm, without any divination involved.

Chirognomy and Chirosophy are related subjects – the former is the study of the shapes and bumps of the fingers and hands, and the latter is the study of the philosophical and esoteric aspects of palmistry.”

Palmist Bharat Rochline is a palmistry representative from the Thailand. Bharat writes on her website palmistryreading.com:

“… Palmistry is the Mystical science of the meanings of the lines and the shape of the palm and fingers. Similar to Astrology, Palmistry has been studied since ancient times when it was discovered that the lines and shape of the palm were associated with certain behavioral and personality traits. For example, it was noted that when a person’s thumb was set low in the hand, there was a high probability that the person would be kind and generous.

The lines on the hand are not stagnant or fixed but are constantly changing and reforming. They are alive and vibrant and change as we change. I see the lines as a bio-computer readout of our energy fields and patterns. This readout includes all our mental, emotional, psychological and spiritual channels and even shows past life tendencies and issues. This can help us to understand our habits, see our blocks, shortcomings, talents and advantages, and even understand where we are in terms of enlightenment.

My approach incorporates both logic and intuition. I use logic to jump to intuition and confirm my intuition with the help of logic. I use only the information I have discovered to be true and have verified over my years of practice.”

Handleser Bente Hansson is a palmistry representative from the Norwegian capital city Oslo. Bente Hansson writes on her website www.handlesning.no:

“… I’ve always been interested in working with people. The real beauty of working with hand analysis is that we see humans as it is. Hands don’t lie. We often go around and compare us to each other and wish that we were more like that, or so. It can make us discontented with ourselves.

Hand analysis shows us how we actually turned up. It is these small differences on us I am concerned to identify; it is especially for you, because it’s only you that’s the way you are. I prefer always to take a look at the positive of a person and together we try to find new opportunities to further develop these positive sides.

I am a graduate sociology and have worked with in the social network for several years. Since 2000, I studied sjamanistisk healing and meditation. I am a trained hand reader and have recently taken to grips on the specialization courses in tarot-interpretation.”
