Welcome to God Given Glyphs

My name is Jennifer Hirsch. I’ve read hands and taught chirology, palmistry and hand reading for almost 30 years. Our hands and their forms and markings are maps to self-understanding. Reading hands with chirology is a point of departure to an inner guided tour which, is in many ways, incomparable.

Chirology (Gr-kheri-hand – logos – knowledge) is a universal hand reading style and a dialogue therapy. Holding another person’s two hands in yours and speaking and listening together is an intimate, alchemical, potent and super-interesting healing system. For anyone wanting to learn to read hands, either professionally or as a hobby, I teach classes in Johannesburg, as well as offering a comprehensive online hand reading training course. I also offer books, private and Skype consultations, articles, talks and topic workshops.

Chirology’s 5 element interpretive system includes traditional palmistry but is more primarily designed around the principles and characteristics of the elements, earth, water, fire, air and chi. The how-to of chirology and palmistry involves examination of lines, glyphs, mounts, textures, shapes, colors and many other hand features that reveal surprisingly accurate information about our authentic character, temperament, personality, patterns of behavior and even events that have left their imprint. 

An excerpt from a book I’m working on about the ever-popular old palmistic “Gypsy” markings….……The Magic M.
A ‘lucky M’, or ‘magic M’, is formed by the combination of the life, fate, head and heart lines. Not many of us have a clear ‘M’, they relatively uncommon. These criteria must be met for an ‘M’ to be well formed:

• Your life and head lines are joined at their start.
• You have a clear fate line.
• In your left hand, the down stroke of the ‘M’ is formed by the heart line.
• In your right hand, the heart line forms the upstroke i.e. first branch of the “M”.

An ‘M’ is associated with good fortune in life, along with several traits, blessings and gifts, many of which begin with the letter M.

• Money: An ‘M’ is well-aspected for wealth and financial success. Career prospects are positive.
• Motivation: Owners will have a steady supply of self-discipline.
• Management: This primarily refers to self-management, as well as leadership abilities.
• Mastery: The concept is here being self-mastery in this lifetime. Owners of well-formed ‘M’s’ are strong and stable within themselves. Linked here is the likelihood of their having well developed intuition, which reduces room for error in business and relationships. People with an ‘M’ are supposedly good judges of character, who can sense hidden agendas in other’s behavior.
• Marriage: Some palmistry practitioners propose that an ‘M’ in a hand increases the likelihood of the owner having a happy marriage.
• Mysticism: The ‘M’ also relates to spiritual progression. Owners align with and cultivate their spiritual lives. Perhaps this is also why the ‘M’ has been called the ‘mark of the mother goddess’.
• Magic: Another concept associated with this marker is that anything to do with mystery and manifestation will intrigue their sleuth-like owners.

Hi hand readers! Please join our YouTube community. I post a new video every Saturday.

With palmistry, depicted in lilac on the left, my way of interpreting your hands is more specifically intuitive. Our attention is on future; together we tune into desired or feared outcomes.

With 5 element chirology, depicted in blue on the right, my focus is on counseling and coaching within the context of the 5 Realm model. Focus is on supporting you in your current time situation.

I love the format with the labelled illustrations. You really should be proud of these works! I love the colors and book cover design, gorgeous. Beautifully presented, and the info I read so far is spot on! It is about time someone made 5 Element hand analysis more available to the public!”
