Honeymoon from Hell: Perception is Everything
Is your partner’s perception of the world out of sync with your own? Do you see the glass as half full and they insist it’s half empty? Palmistry can help you find a balance. Check out Marty and Mary-Anne’s story:
The wedding was wonderful; the honeymoon was hell.
Marty and Mary-Anne met and fell in love while volunteering at a food shelter; they shared the same goals and values and believed they would make a happy and compatible match. But their problems began right after the ceremony.
Marty had booked a cabin at a remote mountain lodge that was a popular honeymoon retreat. He felt sure his new bride would find it romantic, but on the drive up Mary-Anne became increasingly nervous.
“Marty—it’s so dark in the country . . . what if the car breaks down or we run out of gas? We would be lost—no one would find us. We could starve to death!”
“Don’t be silly—there’s no need to worry,” Marty assured her. “We aren’t going to get lost, or starve . . . this is a new car, I’ve got a map and a full tank of gas.”
Marty was exhilarated by the fresh air and beautiful natural setting, but Mary-Anne wasn’t. By the time the newlyweds had checked into their cabin she was trembling.
“What’s that noise, Marty? It’s wolves, isn’t it?!”
“Mary-Anne, it’s just crickets. It’s completely safe here, there is nothing to be afraid of.”
But the colour drained from Mary-Anne’s face when something banged against the door. She was certain it was a bear when it was only the concierge with a complimentary bottle of champagne.
“I hate this place Marty—did you bring me here to torture me?”
After three sleepless nights, they cut the disastrous honeymoon short and returned to the city. Things didn’t improve from there. Marty was calm and optimistic by nature, but Mary-Anne worried constantly about everything. What would happen if Marty lost his job as an electrician? What if the kids get sick? What if the quiet neighbours move away and noisy ones move in? Although they loved each other and never contemplated divorce, Marty and Mary-Anne’s marriage wasn’t a very happy, harmonious or peaceful one.
Not long after their 20th wedding anniversary Marty was hired to do electrical work at the Birla Center and, out of curiosity, had his handprints taken and was so impressed with his reading that he returned with Mary-Anne for a couple’s consultation. That’s when the reasons for their vastly differing outlooks on life finally began to make sense.
Marty’s Mount of Luna (or Moon) was full and healthy, but Mary-Anne’s was underdeveloped and severely raided by many interference lines. This was of major significance because the Mount of Luna is the first of the hand’s ten mounts—it affects every aspect of our lives and, in many ways, is the foundation of our entire physiological and emotional make up. In essence, the Mount of Luna determines how our five senses interpret the information we receive from the world around us. If the mount is under or over-developed our perceptions of reality will be skewed. An unbalanced Luna can lead to mistrust, chronic anxiety, depression and paranoia.
This explained why Marty loved the honeymoon resort while Mary-Anne found it nightmarish. Marty accurately perceived the beauty around him and could fully appreciate and enjoy it; Mary-Anne perceived danger in every noise and shadow and felt only fear and anger.
Thankfully, palmistry not only shows us what is askew in our lives, it offers remedies to fix them. Over time, as our lives change and improve, the lines and mounts of our hand also change and improve, making palmistry a barometer of our wellbeing. This was the case with Mary-Anne, who we encouraged to take up meditation and yoga to assist her in turning her attention inward to more objectively perceive her exterior surroundings. In doing so she discovered that most of her fears were based on a reality that did not exist.
Within a few years Mary-Anne no longer suffered from anxiety and could remain focused and objective in every situation. Her life and marriage improved immeasurably. On their 30th wedding anniversary Marty and Mary-Anne returned to the mountain resort for a second honeymoon—this time they enjoyed it so much they extended their stay.
