The Island on the life line

My curiosity about the lines on the palm, including the island on the life line started at the age of eleven. I attended my uncles fortieth birthday party with my family. He had hired a palm reader to entertain his guests, and as a very curious little girl, I simply had to know about it. She did a quick reading of my hands, and I have never forgotten what she said to me because they came true.

By the time I left high school, my interest had grown to the extent that I spent many hours in the library searching for suitable books to read. It was not long before I was practising with my friends and taking notes for my study. My hands were the greatest asset as I continued my learning over the next years to come. It has been a long journey which continues as I live my passion for hand analysis.

The main reason I originally got inquisitive about reading palms, was personal. I discovered that some negative markings had appeared on my palms (based on what I had read in books).

One mark was the look of my life line, (the line which wraps around the ball of the thumb).

The island on the life line was like a split in the line and then it formed back into one.

Some palmists say that an island on life line is a negative mark, even to say it shows disease like cancer. So, you can imagine my horror and fear when I found this island on my palm. This marking is not, however, a reliable indication of cancer, nor is it a forecast that cancer or any other disease is present. It is, at most, a sign that something causes the energies to split in two directions.

The energy levels might be low during the period indicated on the line. Mostly, the island on a line shows a temporary state, lasting only for the duration of it. (See my video about it here.) In some people, of course depending on other factors, it can mean a predisposition to a particular disease, such as alcoholism or depression.

So, the markings, no matter what they look like, indicate interruptions to life. These interruptions do not have to be negative. They can and often are positive changes or life events, such as having children or getting married. Starting a new kind of life at any age can interrupt career, hobbies, friends, family and even the general outlook on life. These changes, in turn, can make its mark on the palm of your hand, especially on the life line.

To back up any possible health issues acquired from palmistry, you should always consult a qualified medical practitioner. Please don’t make the mistake of diagnosing from the nails, palms or lines alone. Many of these indicators are in frequent change according to the individuals’ state of affairs.
