Palm reading is an ancient art form that can give us insight into our personality and reveal facts about our future. It’s an extremely valuable tool that can help someone make big decisions if they need a little guidance.

There’s one line in the palm, however, that is extremely rare and portends many good things for those who have it. Palm readers urge everyone to look for it on their own hands to see if they are one of the lucky carriers.


Palm reading, or palmistry, actually dates back thousands of years. It was practiced in ancient India, China, Tibet, Persia, and Babylon, to name just a few locations. It is believed to have originated by Hindu astrologers several thousand years ago (the exact date is unknown).

It was then learned by the Roma people (gypsies) who spread it around Europe and other parts of the world. As the teachings were taught to different cultures, they adapted their own knowledge and incorporated it into palmistry, making this art form just a bit different in different parts of the world.


Across the different cultures, one line was observed that was very rare. It’s found right next to the life line on a person’s left hand. The line is very powerful for those lucky enough to have it.

This line is called the guardian angel line. It’s sometimes referred to as a “double life line” because of its location right next to that important line. No matter what it’s called, it means the same thing for a person.


The line means that a person has an angel or a spirit guide assisting them through life. This angel or guide can take many different forms but are often the spirit of a deceased loved one close to you before they passed on.

This guide often helps a person through especially difficult times. Their presence may not always be apparent, but the guardian angel line ensures that this guide will never abandon you or leave you on your own.


To see if you have this guardian angel line, take a look at your left palm. Find your life line, which is the large line running through the middle of your palm. The life line gives insight into your health, vitality, energy levels, quality of life, sexual health and prosperity. The deeper and more pronounced the line, the stronger these energies are.

The guardian angel line will be found right next to that line, running parallel to it. It should be fainter than the life line, but still apparent. The guardian angel line often first appears at the age a close family member or loved one has passed away. That person then begins guiding you from the afterlife, helping you along your journey.

Some people deride palm reading as a pseudoscience, but it actually reveals truths that have been passed down for generations. Instead of mocking or dismissing something solely because it’s so old, maybe we can actually learn something from the wisdom of our ancestors.
