Welcome to God Given Glyphs

My name is Jennifer Hirsch. I’ve read hands and taught chirology, palmistry and hand reading for over 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 fascinating dialogue therapy that is perhaps the fastest road to self-discovery known to man. Chirology is an intimate, alchemical and potent healing system.

For anyone wanting to learn to read hands, either professionally or as a hobby, I offer 3 optional length online hand reading training courses to suit your requirements. I also teach classes in the South Coast KZN area (where I now live). Consultations (based on a set of 10 specific photographs) are online via Skype/Zoom/WhatsApp, or visit me for a private one-on-one reading. 

Chirology’s 5 element interpretive system includes traditional palmistry but is primarily designed around the principles and characteristics of the elements, earth, water, fire, air and aether/chi. The how-to of chirology and palmistry involves examination of lines, glyphs, mounts, textures, shapes, colours and many other hand features that reveal surprisingly accurate information about our authentic character, temperament, personality and patterns of behaviour. We also discover how past events leave their imprint in our hands, and identify the traits that either hinder or assist optimal future outcomes.

Another marker in hands that in a reading can open the conversation to the spiritual are lines which run parallel to earth (life) lines (inside, on balls of thumbs). These lines are fire governed. In nature, the blend of earth with fire forges and hardens, which is why in the 5 element system of how to read hands, these positive lines represent sources of extra strength and support for their owners. Depending on the depth of the lines, the added energy might be physical, as in added constitutional, metabolic and muscular strength, emotional, as in support from others, and/or spiritual; they tell of support available from the unseen and angelic realms. ...

The Memory Loop, or Radial Water Loop in the 5 element system, is a dermatoglyphic marking on the Moon Mount that is another marker of psychic sensitivity; owners are often highly intuitive, especially if accompanied by long smooth fingers. Bearers of this marking resonate with myth and symbol, instinctively understand dreams, and can relate to deeper memory within the collective unconscious. ... See MoreSee Less

Psychic indicators: Tapered towards pointed shaped fingertips tips in a set of hands can signal astutely perceptive intuition. Pointed (water governed, illustrated by the blue circle) tip shapes are like feelers, the person is sensitive, and less practical than those with other shaped tips. Owners may be highly imaginative, and readily inspired. ... See MoreSee Less

Sundays always feel right for posting something about spirituality in hands. Today I'm mentioning “Rings of Solomon” which are lines that form rings over Jupiter mounts under water (index) fingers. Often seen on theologians and spiritual teachers, this marking is traditionally associated with perception and insight in the serious seeker. Amongst several other variable meanings (which are determined by cross-referencing many other forms and features of the entire hand) we might assign the interpretation that the person vibrates on a high harmonic, and who might strive toward spiritual mastery. ...

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.
