palmistry and fortune telling

Recommended Posts

I was just going through a page I saw article about palm reading and I read it and now I’m worrying. It was talking about the lines inside of wrist called bracelet lines and they indicate the years you live. Having 3 or 4 lines means a long life. I’m worried cause it’s says if you have only two that you only have late 40s early 50s and I’m freaking out. I really hope it’s not true anyone have proof this isn’t true that’s older than those ages and only has two of these lines I’m scared

Hi. Well Worrygirl, if you want to believe that pure unadulterated nonsense then go ahead and make yourself even more ill. Superstition is one thing we want nothing to do with in anxiety. Many believe this kind of thing, but life is life. Things happen and mostly we have no control over them. So take life as it comes. Try not to get caught up in superstitious nonsense. You have enough on your plate already.

Now what I have said will not go down well with believers in this kind of superstition. I stress this is my opinion. But do you really believe?  Think about it! Most people who believe in this sort of thing do it for reassurance. They seek answers to the unknown. If you allow your life to be governed by such stuff, you will surely finish up making yourself worse. Live your life in the best way you can. Be kind and honest and give love and compassion to others. By helping others you help yourself.

Hi Worrygirl. I just wanted to say that I used to be a palm reader in my twenties (I'm 67 now) and unfortunately I had to come to the conclusion that it is a load of twoddle! It's very nice to think that our lives can be predicted in this way, but they can't, and I speak from experience. This is similar to looking up your anxiety symptoms on google. Don't do it! You will only frighten yourself more by convincing yourself that you have some terrible illness. You don't. This is just how the anxious mind works, it looks for reasons to be worried when there aren't any. Anxiety is not an illness, it is your own body's natural protective system and it is there to protect you from danger. Sometimes it goes off half-cocked when there isn't any real danger and then it looks round to find something. Don't believe your anxious thoughts, they are never true. We maintain our anxiety by constantly obsessing and worrying about it. It doesn't really matter if you do that because anxiety will never cause you any kind of real harm but it will make your journey more uncomfortable. You cannot die from anxiety and you cannot go mad from anxiety, it is just a very uncomfortable experience in the body and mind. The more you can ignore it, occupy yourself with something else, and not try to fix it, the sooner it will go away. It is just nervous arousal, nothing more. Best wishes xxx

Hi Athol and Welcome. I don't think in all the years I have been on here that I have read such a true and uplifting post from a newcomer. Everything you say is so very true. You could be a valuable asset to this site so keep posting. There are times when we all need to read encouraging posts, and that's what it's all about really. Helping one another. Very best wishes.

Hey. I know you must be worrying a lot about it. It happened with me a few years ago. Me and my friends went to a park where I met this palmist and she told me a lot of things about my life and I was not concerned but my friends started assuming thing and it really worried me alot after a while. And the fear of things turning into reality made me so restless and uncomfortable. I do believe in few of the things but not everything. Neither I am superstitious. So whenever anything could happen, it would remind me of the palmist's prediction. I understand things like this can cause anxiety and depression.I came across some amazing advices yet tops for each zodiac.  https://ezcareclinic.com/12-famous-astrologers-connecting-the-zodiac-to-mental/ . I can say that it has helped me cure atleast my mental health is better. I know what ,how and when to do for myself.

We can't deny the laws of physics by which the Universe and all things are kept running. They are immutable laws.  I am not saying for one moment that a realm of possibilities does not exist beyond the dimension in which we live and call life. Good respected and honest mediums do exist, and often help so many who have suffered loss. But so do many charlatans who take advantage of someone's distress for money. And there lies the problem for anxiety sufferers. Who to believe!! It's why I suggest leaving it all alone. Any sort of superstition can have a negative effect on anxiety. The last thing we need is to be told by some so called psychic person that we will die at at a certain age!!  Genuine psychic people do exist, and when you meet the genuine article you will know. But I doubt any of us are in a state of mind where we can discern good from bad. In severe states of anxiety a little child could lead us, and we are prone to believing anything. So for the moment I suggest leaving it until we can reason properly.

I feel like it’s not true but the anxiety part of me worries it is true

Thank you I want to not think it’s true but at same time it perfect for anxiety to make me anxious. The thing about the bracelet  lines is insane it’s says that if you have less than three lines you live in till the 40s yet plenty have only two and live long lived till 80s. It also says if line isn’t a straight line It means you’ll have health problems with Th the genital area and I feel Ike I know they cannot be true but I worry cause stuff like ovarian and other cancers scare me 😟 I just hate this.

I would never go to an actual palm reader ever I just saw articles about lines on you palm and looked to see. I really try to not read any kind of stuff like that I know how scary it it fuels magical thinking ocd which is worst part of anxiety for me. Thank you for reply

Hi Again WW. It's all about suggestion and belief. It's belief that makes a suicide bomber do what he does. The suggestion has been planted in his mind that all non believers should be killed and he acts like a robot and does it. The whole principle of brainwashing is based on suggestion. Now I do appreciate that these are extremes. But OCD is not just limited to HA sufferers. It can have much wider implications. It's not what is true but what we believe to be true. I don't believe in any of it so it has no effect on me. Years ago I too had OCD although not badly. But I deliberately put it to the test and walked under ladders and did all the the things my mind told me not to do. Wonder of wonders!! I was not struck by a bolt of lightening or died at 40, so I conclude it was all rubbish and left it alone. Good luck to those who do believe. But when in an anxiety state this kind of stuff can have a bad effect IF YOU ALLOW IT TO!!!! You are master of your mind.  You can make decisions for yourself, and you don't need superfluous advice from those who would have you believe this nonsense. Fear of what MIGHT happen can bug us all day. But who knows what might happen. President Trump firmly believes he won the election and because people voted against him he calls them cowards and fools. See what can happen when you go against the facts. It does make sense in anxiety that you worry about such things. Never underestimate the power of suggestion.  Now take care of yourself and leave it all alone, including the suggestions from Dr. Google.
