This course is meant exclusively for personal use. Copying of this book or of any part of it without previous written consent of the author is forbidden by law. ©


This course was written to offer a means of support to all who are open minded to self knowledge and who wish to achieve inner growth in their current life. It is an instrument to assist in gaining insights through self study and self analysis of ones own hands.
Rather than focussing on individual differences, the contents of this book are intended to assist  readers to become aware of similarities.
What we have in common is a reality and what separates us is but an illusion.

By reading ones own hands and hands of other people, knowledge of self is increased due to the fact that one learns to know and understands self and others on a deeper level, which actually changes perspective.
By unconditionally connecting to a person from the heart, all that is given e.g. support, insight, advice etc. will be received in return. We reap what we sow.

Every single person is a very complex and unique being. This is the reason why reading hands never seizes to offer new challenges and surprises.
In addition, ones own development and growth by reading hands shall, sooner or later, convince all who are preoccupied with the subject there are no limitations to gathering information.

Finally the advice to treat all whose hands one reads in such a way one would like to be treated oneself, with respect, understanding and compassionately.

The author.
