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.

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.

“You’ve outdone yourself This is your life’s work in one well-researched and beautiful book! It’s concise, and I love the way it’s set out, the relevant topics, the illustrations, and the interweaving with aspects of palmistry. This should be every hand reader’s ‘go to’ book!”

“The more I look at your book, the more I see how much work has gone into it and how great it is. You manage to condense the meanings so succinctly and to the point. 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!”
