Extract from Palmistry: From Apprentice to Pro in 24 hours Squeeze me, please me! Here we'll examine the consistency of the flesh at the base of the palm near the thumb. From this we can find out a huge amount about a person's basic energy and physical resources. Squeezing the thumb ball Take the hand of the person you're reading for in your own. Press your thumb into the flesh around their thumb ball while gripping the back of the palm with your fingers. Beneath the semi-circular fleshy padding around the thumb's base is the hand's major artery which splits here into various smaller blood vessels. The protective padding here - its size, warmth and firmness - is a good indicator of a person's general muscle development, blood circulation, zest for life and physical resources. Full but flabby If the flesh forms a full and high mound, but it's flabby, so the pad is easily crushed, there's acute sensuality but poor muscular development. This is particularly true if the palm skin is also moist. People with such qualities are pleasure-seekers who love food, drink and the pleasures of the flesh. They can find it difficult to diet and are inclined to make hard work of exercise. The key here is to encourage them to find a form of exercise they enjoy, i.e. swimming or dancing. Full and firm If the flesh here is full, firm, warm and springy, it shows a passionate, lusty vitality, abundant energy and human warmth. Firm, full and hard When the pad is full but rock hard (almost as if made of wood) the person has enormous physical toughness. They're extremely hardy, emotively repressive and rather rigid psychologically. Good advice to give is for them to have regular massage treatments. This will release tight muscles physically and open them out emotionally. Flat and cold If the fleshy pad is flat and cold, there is a consequent lassitude, emotional coolness and lack of vital energy, but often a stubborn resilience. Such people should be advised to do aerobic exercise, which will increase circulation and lift energy levels. The unremarkable average If the pad is half-raised and fairly firm, this is a general average. Maintaining our golden rule of ignoring anything average, we'll dismiss this sign of a fair but unremarkable quality of vital energy. Secret palmist assignment While you're learning palmistry, try to keep it a secret from the world at large until you've gained plenty of experience. Once people know you're a palmist, you may get trampled in the rush as everyone thrusts their palm in your face! This can be intimidating; you need to gain confidence quietly while remaining incognito. Use only trusted friends and relatives as your initial 'guinea pigs'. Get into the habit of being a secret palm-watcher. Examine people's hands from a distance - see if you can see a relationship between the length of the fingers and the length of someone's limbs. Look at the size of the thumb ball on people's hands. If you shake someone's hand, try to feel this area. Observe how those with full, firm thumb balls are vital, energetic people and those with a flat mount the reverse
