Do you really want to know what lies in your future? The answer, of course, depends on whether you can do anything to change, disrupt or alter any future course of events determined in advance to be negative. Probably shouldn’t, of course, since the alternate course could very well be even worse. The old devil you know argument, don’t you know. If you are of the mind to discover what lies ahead for you, the first step may well be discovering what kind of fortune teller you think will do the job most authentically.
I have a bit more insight into the reality of a palmist than I do for other types of fortune telling. I also have a bit more insight into palmistry than the average person. My grandmother made her living reading palms for more than 50 years. I was raised in the Romnichal Gypsy culture where palmistry was a common vocation for women. While I watched an endless parade of customers-many of them repeat customers over the course of decades-retire back to the private room (the dookering room) where my grandmother did her readings, I never once actually got to see that exhibition take place. What I do know is that when the lines and mounds on the palm are connected, there is a release of positive energy. When the lines are broken or weakly formed, negativity results. So you may want to take this into consideration before deciding on palmistry.
Crystal Ball Gazer
My grandmother always used to hint at having a crystal ball hidden somewhere in her dookering room. Many hours were wasted trying to find it. I never did. The crystal ball is a method for telling the future that has become a part of the lexicon of history. In fact, the ball may very well be made of obsidian as likely as it is made of crystal quartz. The clarity of the glass is what is important as well as the distortion. That may see like a paradox, but the point of gazing into a crystal ball is to perceive images related to questions being asked and answers being sought. There is much to be said about the dramatic effect peering into a shiny ball of crystal. At least as far as seeing things you want to see.
Scrivening is a method of foretelling the future with which you may not be quite as familiar. Ever seen images appear in the curling of smoke or chocolate syrup poured into a cup of coffee? It’s all scrivening. Images that appear one thing, but don’t be chained to a scrivener who looks just for the literal. Scriveners also can try to find patterns and metaphorical content in smoke or on ice as it cracks under the weight of heat. These abstractions, in the hands of a master scrivener, can be linked together to create a storyline that leads to future gains. A great scrivener is only half mystical; the other half veers toward being an empathetic psychologist.
