Today's blog is all about VISION and as usual it's inspired by real-life events.
I've just come back from a big weekend with friends at Palm Beach** on the Gold Coast. During a morning swim I managed to lose my prescription glasses in the ocean.
I've never had that happen before as I normally keep my head above water but I just got carried away this time. I almost threw up with shock when it happened because I can only see 10cm in front without my specs and I suddenly reverted to being this awkward, blind blubbering heap! Lucky my friends were there to save me.
(If you're wondering why I don't wear contacts it's because I've always used my glasses as a 'defence mechanism' against the world plus I find it creepy to poke my own eyes!)
So I ended up spending the day at a lovely organic cafe down the road meeting all these new people (well, meeting their voices at least) I also read for Kerrie Edwards-Ticehurst who is an author and palmist from the area. It must have been a funny sight as I had to hold her hand in front of my nose the whole time.
During the day I had a look at my hands and noticed that, although I have the marking for short-sightedness in my non-writing (left) hand as in the picture above, I DON'T have it in my writing (right) hand. What that means is that I could potentially get rid of my glasses one day as the shortsightedness is only in my genetics (left) hand.
Interestingly, the short-sightedness marking appears under the Apollo (creativity) finger on the Heart line, implying that people who wear glasses may have lost sight of their creative passions. I faked an eye test at 10 so I could get glasses and look more intelligent and It was at that moment that I 'lost my vision' of the future.
If you wear glasses I invite you to not only look for this marking on your hands but also to consider what you are still too afraid to look at in life? Palmistry is a great tool for self-healing and everything you need to know about yourself is right there in your palms.
**That's right...I'm a palmist who hang outs with other palmists on Palm Beach...I also run workshops there!
