By seeing our own personalities as they are reflected in the unique signature of our palms, we learn why we succeed in some relationships and not others, and what we can do to strengthen bonds with the most important people in our lives. Love in the Palm of Your Hand provides complete and practical information on the science of palmistry. Hundreds of illustrations of actual palms allow you to compare the palms of your friends and loved ones to different personality types and see how changes in character over time are reflected in the lines of the hand. Included with the book is an inked acetate kit that you can use to print and read your own palm.
Paintings by Nostradamus discovered in 1994 in the Italian National Library provide the key to decoding his prophecies- Reveals the chronology of Nostradamus's quatrains that have been hidden for 400 years - Shows how Nostradamus correctly predicted the Nazi Blitzkrieg, the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II, and Boris Yeltsin's rise to power - Contains prophecies for what the next millennium has in store In 1994 members of the Italian National Library in Rome found buried in their archives an unknown and unpublished manuscript consisting of 80 mysterious paintings by the famed prophet Michel de Nostradamus (1503-1566). This manuscript, handed down to the prophet's son and later donated by him to Pope Urban VIII, confirms the hidden chronology of Nostradamus's quatrains discovered by the well-known Nostradamus scholar Ottavio Cesare Ramotti. In both the paintings and accompanying quatrains within, Nostradamus correctly predicts such key events as the Nazi Blitzkrieg, the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II, the burning of the oil wells of Kuwait by Iraq, and Boris Yeltsin's rise to power. Knowing the power that his prophecies contained, and wary of this power falling into the wrong hands, Nostradamus scrambled both the meaning and the order of his quatrains so that humanity would not be able to use them until it had become sophisticated enough to decode them. That time is now. Using a software program he created, Ramotti has finally cracked the code and produced a book that is required reading for those who want to know what the next millennium has in store.

Use the ancient Indian art of Vedic palmistry as a guide to self-understanding and the creation of your destiny.- Learn to influence your future to bring forth the best qualities of heart, mind, and soul. - Read a record of the past, a print of the present, and guidance for the future in the ever changing interplay of lines. - Become aware of your innate tendencies and personality type from the lines in your palms. One's destiny isn't carved in stone. Rather than predicting a set future, Vedic palmistry shows us how to take active steps to influence and improve our destinies once we have gained better self-understanding. Using dozens of illustrations and examples of actual palm prints, Birla demonstrates how our less dominant hand reflects all that we have inherited from the past--old behavior patterns, thoughts, desires, and attitudes--while our dominant hand (the hand we write with) reflects our resolve to change for the better. By comparing both hands we gain an understanding of where we are coming from and where we are headed. As we make positive changes in our lives, the lines on our palms will actually change to reflect our progress.

Whether positive or negative, The Dictionary of Dreams gives you all the tools, symbols, and their true meanings to translate our cryptic nightly images.
