Throughout the centuries, divination has been used to investigate future events. Many methods have been tried and tested in the hope of revealing hidden answers. I have held a fascination for this subject for many years, which was why I eventually put pen to paper with my daughter, Leanna Greenaway, and wrote, Catalog of the Unexplained. PalmistryI have been a working palmist for over forty years and have studied many clients' hands, gaining a great deal of information and knowledge (which I wrote about in one of my other books, Palmistry Out of your Hands). The very first impressions happen when taking the person's hands into yours; there is usually an immediate vibration to into which ...

Playing cards have been with us for centuries, but they're less popular in divination today than more famous systems such as the tarot. This is partly because the few definitions we have for reading poker-style decks are very old-fashioned: nearly all of them focus only on work, illness, and marriage (the most important topics at the time!) and their attitudes to women are...well, two or three hundred years out of date.

It's as clear in my mind as if it happened yesterday. I was ten years old, and had been befriended by a middle-aged lady who lived a few houses away. She was a good cook, and regularly invited me in to try her baking. I usually sat in the kitchen with her, but on this day the phone went, and she put me in their library, as it was an important call. I had never been in a home that had a library, and as I was a keen reader, it was exciting to sit in a room with books up to the ceiling on all four walls. I walked around the room, eating cake, and looking at the books. I happened to notice a dozen or more books on palmistry. I had no idea what that was, and when Mrs. Tompkins finished her ...
