Palm reading is something I’ve always been interested in, and one of my first books on anything remotely spiritual was Richard Webster’s book on Palm Reading for Beginners. However the use of cards and throwing stones took precedence for me over the years and I’ve sort of just worked on learning about the basics of palm reading as an interest not anything serious… until recently that is.
However, about a year ago, as I was also in the phase of getting a bit of a wake up call generally about my using my abilities to help others, I met a palm reader who invited me to the ‘palm reader’s guild’ Christmas gathering. I went along and met some nice people, but felt like a bit of a phony as I was clearly not in the same leagues with them all regarding this area of spiritual work. In fact, I felt that most of them were more learned and in some cases had studied the intricacies of palm reading for up to 60 years. I on the other hand struggle to retain a lot of the science of such things and can never remember so much intricate variations as there is to learn.
To cut a long story short however I did end up agreeing to help with doing (Palm) readings at a local Medieval Fair in July of this year. In preparation I studied up extra tips and reviewed all my previous notes on palmistry, got a Maid Marion style costume and turned up to do my bit on the day. From the first reading I did that day I felt quite comfortable with the process and knowing that I was limited in terms of intricate knowledge, I just opened myself up to being guided and allowed the channels to open so that I could convey information needed to those I was reading for.
I did turn to using my throwing stones a few times, but overall worked with the palms in front of me.
At one point during the day I realised I was actually pretty good at it. And – as I reminded myself – it didn’t matter that my actual knowledge of the intricacies of the lines on the hands were limited. I was there to share what I was meant to share with those put in front of me. Trusting in my guides and in the universe to deliver the correct combination of this was what I allowed myself to do and it worked. For all of us – me and those who sat at my table expectantly.
You see, it’s not always about what you use as the key to open your channel for sharing, so long as you can trust it and use it wisely. There’s much to learn about all aspects of being a light worker, or in my case I think of myself as a spiritual interpreter. And it’s almost impossible to expect that anyone can simply learn all the formulas and textbook your way through this work. Instead, learning to let yourself be a conduit can be far more rewarding.
I’m learning every day to trust, let go, work with ego, work with spirit, and rely on my guides to work with me in ways that are appropriate and right for each situation. Awareness of self is the one thing I struggle with most on a day by day basis – and I’m learning about that too.
What ever you use to keep you open and connected to your guides, trust that they will guide you.
