I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

Palmistry is the art of reading character and destiny from the shape of the hand and the lines of the palm.  The palm gives us a map of our life and it is up to us to make the most of it. It is important to note that the lines of the hand can change, for better or for worse. Nothing is set in stone and we have free will to change our future. Life is what we make it.
Bear in mind this is just a rough guide and I know when I am reading palms I use the hands purely as a gateway to tap in to what is going in and around the client. It's relatively easy to learn the lines and know what they mean but to go that bit deeper you need to tap into the client's auric field.

The hand you use is called the major, or outer hand. This indicates any future events, as well as what you are like on the outside.

The other hand is the minor, or inner hand. This shows your potential, as well as what you are like on the inside.
Right-handed people tend to be more logical because that part is connected to the analytical, left side of the brain.

Left-handed people tend to be more creative because that part is connected to the intuitive, right side of the brain.

The texture and feel of the hand is important in an initial assessment. Is it soft? Or hard? Does it bend easily under pressure or is it very rigid? The job has no relevance to the feel of the hand: manual workers can have soft hands and office workers can have hard hands. 

People with really soft hands are refined, sensitive and prefer genteel activities. Hard-skinned people are tough and prefer plenty of activity and concrete matters. 

Some people’s hands are really pliable and bendy: this indicates an easy going and flexible nature. If you have really stiff hands this shows a determined/stubborn nature. You tend to hold your ground!


The length of the fingers supplies various information about the character. A long-fingered person is analytical and academic, liking to study things in detail. A person with markedly short fingers is very practical and intuitive, liking to go with their gut instinct. When the hands are in proportion it shows a balanced personality.

The proportion of the fingers in relation to each other is very important. They each stand for a character marking and indicate the strength of that quality.

  • Forefinger: Confidence, ego, ambition, drive.

  • Middle finger: Discipline, balance.

  • Ring finger: Emotional expression, creativity.

  • Little finger: Communication.
  • A balanced ego is indicated when the forefinger reaches the bottom of the nail of the middle finger.
  • Balanced emotions are indicated when the ring finger reaches the bottom of the nail of the middle finger.
  • Great confidence is indicated when the fore finger reaches past the bottom of the nail of the middle finger.
  • Very emotional and creative impulses are indicated when the ring finger reaches past the bottom of the nail of the middle finger.
  • A lack of confidence is indicated when the fore finger doesn’t reach past the bottom of the nail of the middle finger.
  • Blocked emotions are indicated when the ring finger doesn’t reach past the bottom of the nail of the middle finger.
  • When the middle finger is prominent, standing out from the rest, it shows a serious and intense nature.
  • When the little finger stands out naturally from your hand it shows an independent and outspoken nature.
  • The thumb, nails and fingerprints are very important in hand analysis. This guide is too brief for a detailed explanation.

Rings on the fingers can indicate character traits.

  • Forefinger: Overbearing ego; or compensating for a lack of confidence.

  • Middle finger: Materialistic nature; needing security.

  • Ring finger: This is conventional and is only noted if there are multiple or large rings adorning it. If this is the case then emotional or creative frustration could be present.

  • Little finger: It is common to see this in the gay community, especially on the left-hand. Otherwise you'll see a lot of businessmen, showbiz people, and anybody else who likes to accumulate fame, status and money.
  • The affect of the rings is enhanced if they are on both hands, and by their size.

A hand covered with jewellery shows emotional armour: the person is hiding behind their rings, finding it hard to be themselves.


The life line travels around the thumb. This tells us about the subject’s physical health: the stronger the line the better the physical constitution. If the line looks weak and frayed then it could be a sign of delicate health. Again it is worth noting that we can’t make a deduction from one line alone as other markings might compensate the weakness.

The line also tells us about particular events in the subject’s life, especially big changes and the affects of other people.


The Head line has the same starting point as the life line (near the thumb) and then goes across the palm. It shows the the way you think. The longer it is the more potential you have. And the clearer it is the more strong-minded / focused you are.

A straight head line shows a practical and logical person. They can be over-analytical, especially when it comes to love.

A gently curving head line shows a balance between the practical and the creative. They have their feet on the ground and are flexible enough to adapt. A steeply curving head line shows a very imaginative and creative person. They have plenty of ideas and inspiration but can find it difficult to keep their feet on the ground.


The heart line stands for your emotions. It starts from the edge of the hand (from the little finger side) and travels across the top of the palm. It is especially important when it comes to relationships. When the heart line ends between the forefinger and the middle finger it means you are emotional and passionate.

When the heart line ends underneath the middle finger it means that you can be self-centered in relationships and need to consider your partner more. When the heart line travels across the top of the hand it means you are more interested in the mental side of the relationship. You don't like great displays of emotion.

When the heart line is short and doesn't go past the middle finger it means you are very cool with your emotions and the physical side is the most important thing in relationships. When the heart line ends in a fork it shows a balance with your emotions: you are very adaptable in that sphere.


The lines have various markings on them. This guide is very brief  but you will see how these two lines are inter-related to each other. This modifies the meaning and gives texture to the interpretation.

When the heart line appears low in the hand and looks like it’s pushing down on the head line, it means that you are ruled by your emotions.

When the head line appears high in the hand and looks like it’s pushing up on the heart line, it means that you are ruled by your intellect. The gap between the heart line and the head line is called the quadrangle. When it is narrow it means you could be close-minded.

When the quadrangle is wide it means you are probably open-minded. If the quadrangle starts narrow and gets wider it means you become more open as you get older.

The gap between the beginning of the head line and the life line is significant. A wide space means an independent nature from an early age. If the two lines are tied together it means a cautious nature-especially if they look chained which means shyness.

For those of you who wish to study palmistry a bit deeper then I can recommend "Art of Hand Reading" by Lori Reid. I have this book on my own shelf and it is well illustrated and clearly laid out and easy to follow

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
