Introductory Hand Reading

This comprehensive reading covers all areas and aspects of your life. The consultant will discuss your natal chart with you and explain how it interacts with the lines and signs of your hands. In this introductory reading there will be a special focus on you natural gifts and talents, your immediate objectives and long-term goals, as well as your karma and your main purpose in life.

At the Birla Center we examine all aspects of your hand from the perspective of balance. Imbalances in the hand represent areas of our lives that present us with both great personal challenges and great opportunities to achieve personal and evolutionary growth.

There are many places in the hand to check for balance, such as the head and heart lines, relating to the reason and feeling aspects of our nature. For example, a long heart line and a short head line strongly suggest an ambiguous nature. The unequal lines indicate that while we may want to be generous and unconditional in our expression of love, our emotions could be censored by our overly rational and pragmatic nature. A long heart line can stifle a short head line. So, even though we are sometimes open, sensitive and emotionally attuned, we can display our feelings and affection in a brusque, matter-of-fact, or even dismissive manner. This is extremely important information to obtain because it can wreak havoc on our intimate relationships and undermine our hopes and dreams. Loved ones may withdraw due to our temperamental nature and we could turn our backs on opportunities, for example a promising career, as we cling instead to what is secure yet humdrum as we don’t trust ourselves enough to follow our heart.

The good news is that once we have identified an imbalance through a careful study of the palm, we can take steps to override the negative patterns that created the imbalance and establish a state of equilibrium. When we understand the origins of the imbalance, we can change our thoughts and behavior to break destructive habits and create healthy ones. And because the lines of our hands change as our actions and attitudes change, palmistry acts as an extraordinary barometer of personal growth—a tried and true route to creating or restoring balance in our lives. Knowing the significance and meaning of the lines and signs in our hands gives us the knowledge we need to design an effective action plan to realize our goals and fulfill our dreams. This journey begins with an Introductory Hand Reading.

As each session provides a great deal of information! We recommend that you bring a USB key or purchase one from us.

The first thing you will encounter during a visit to The Birla Center is a big smile and a warm and friendly welcome from our staff. On your first visit (and often on follow up visits) we will take your handprints before your reading begins. If your reading is being conducted via telephone, we will mail you an at-home handprint kit well in advance of your reading so you have plenty of time to mail your prints back to us before your appointment. Better still, if you can scan and e-mail them to us, it can reduce the waiting time. These prints are very important as they reveal even the finest details of the palm, allowing your consultant to make the most accurate observations. Also, because the lines of the hand can change significantly over time, having your handprints on file allows us to refer back to them for points of comparison in later sessions. As your thoughts, behavior and attitude change, so do the lines of your hand. Over time, every improvement in your life will be reflected in your palm, so your handprints are a great reminder of how far you’ve progressed, as well as a great inspiration to keep moving forward toward fulfilling your goals.

Your consultation will begin with a reading of your astrological birth chart, which includes an analysis of both the major and minor periods of your life. (Having your exact time of birth is extremely helpful for an accurate birth chart reading, so please make every attempt to obtain it before your visit.) In addition, a Hora chart will be drawn up based on the time of day that your consultation takes place. Horary astrology is like taking an astrological snapshot of your life at a particular moment in time—it is a very precise method of highlighting current issues of immediate concern to you.

The actual study of your hands will begin with your non-dominant hand—the hand you do not use to write with. Our non-dominant hand is the hand that shows us our past behaviour and tendencies, while our dominant hand shows us our present tendencies and situation. By studying the information contained in both hands we can trace the link between our past behavioral patterns and our present day personality, thoughts and experiences. With this understanding, we can shape our future in a constructive, fulfilling way, making positive choices regarding work, dealings with people around us, and many other important aspects of living a rich and happy life.

Please feel free to ask any questions you have at any time during the process, and at the conclusion of your session, your consultant will suggest steps you can take to capitalize on the information you’ve received. These steps are based on the program of personal growth and healing developed by Birla Center, Director Ghanshyam Singh Birla during his five decades as a working Vedic astro-palmist and Ayurvedic healer. The suggestions are designed to meet each individual’s particular needs, and can include massage, mantras, specific yoga and breathing exercises, or coaching on a specific area in need of development.

Follow Up Consultations

If you want to explore a particular area of concern after your first consultation—such as romantic compatibility, career or home life difficulties, emotional issues, etc.—we encourage you to book a Follow Up Consultation. If you have a variety of issues you want to address that may require the examination of several astrological charts and sets of handprints, we strongly suggest a minimum two-hour session.

Comparative Handprint Analysis (every 3 to 6 months)

The lines and signs of the hand change in direct response to changes in our thinking and behavior. That is why Follow Up Consultations or Coaching Programs are such powerful motivational tools in terms of reaching your goals and can prove to be incredibly inspiring experiences. These special sessions are specifically designed to help you continue to focus on particular aspects of your hand that you need to improve in order to create or regain greater harmony and balance in your life. In that way, the changes that you would like to make can be monitored and supported between sessions. Your ‘Three to Six Month Comparative Analysis’ is a motivational progress report. It reveals how far you’ve already come in transitioning to a new chapter of your life and encourages you to continue along the path toward realizing your full potential.
