It’s All in How You Hold Your Hands

Batya tells us how to reverse a drooping mind line

Interviewing palmists in Argentina, I met someone who used mudras at the end to set positions to help her clients grow. I asked her to give me a position, but she said, “you are the teacher!” So I got a book, and have been doing mudras ever since as part of my palmistry practice.

For example, when reading palms in the vending area at the Goddess Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas in the latter two weeks of March, I dealt with someone who was very depressed. I could see his mind line dropping way down into the lower part of his lunar mound. This is called a drooping mind line in the palmistry profession. An alert always goes off in my mind when I see this. I wonder: how depressed is this person; is the client suicidal?

Opening Palms

My notepad has propensities at the top, and remedies—what a person needs to do to transform—at the bottom. So in the bottom third of the pad, based on my diagnosis of this person’s lines, I wrote the following:

“Hold your pinky fingers together, and your ring fingers touching your thumbs, on both hands. Let your other fingers fly high up in the air. Hold the hands up to your eye, and breath in and out 10 times while visualizing yourself going down a tunnel. Say to yourself, ‘no matter how dark the tunnel, there is always light at the end.’”

“After ten breaths, change to the second position. This is when you hold you pinkies of each hand on the thumb, and your ring fingers together, again letting all the other fingers up and straight. Repeat the mantra and visualization 10 times, on 10 breaths. Reverse and repeat, for a total of three times in seven minutes.”

Do this three times a day and you will reverse your drooping mind line, or your depression, in no time. Get back to me and tell me how it works!
