Dream meaning: Palm, Palms (hand)

Palm handTo hold something in the palm of your hand is to possess it if only temporarily. Thus, one of the symbolism of the palm of the hand refers to ownership or power or control (have someone in the palm of your hand). However, the magician palms cards to create illusion, while the gambler does it to cheat. The dream may be related to a financial issue or situation.

Open palms, palms up show no deception or hostility; where else in the dream might it be expressed or hinted at? In physical and spiritual healing, the palms of the hands are senders and receivers of energy as in the laying on of hands, or in experiencing the safety or security of being in the palm of the hand of God.
See body, hand.

    I dreamed about palm of my hand and it’s open wide. Looking at it i was shocked because it’s cut as if my palm would be off. The cut was deep and i can see it open, but there’s no blood coming out and i don’t remember feeling any pain at all.

    In April of 2005 I lost the one person I was the closest to. So much more than lovers, we shared a very very close bond. To say that I was devastated when he died would be an understatement. I was petrified of my now uncertain future without him until one night several months later when he came to me in a dream. We were sitting side by side on the very bed that I was sleeping on. Even through I knew he was dead, I was not at all afraid of his presence. Instead of feeling fear I remember feeling peace and love and comfort. His eyes seemed to look past my face straight into my very soul and I found this tremendously comforting. Without ever speaking a word he very gently picked up my hand palm up where he placed the sweetest most loving kiss one could ever be blessed enough to receive. At that moment I felt all the love he ever had for me and instantly I knew that this experience was more than a dream. There was so much power and love and respect in that one kiss. I woke up feeling so special and so loved. As long as I live I will never ever forget that experience. It was all so very beautiful.

    My dream started with just blackness, nothingness a blank slate. Then I became aware that I was in the emptiness, really alert, anxious. I stood up (in nothingness), felt a rise of panic as I didn’t know where I was. I could see in the distance a pinpoint of light. Close to me coming from behind I had some lines that wasn’t one solid colour (It kept changing from light to orange to many different colours but never one colour, almost the full spectrum at once.) Slowly come over my view that turned out to be a triangle once it came in front of me.

    As that was coming down the light was getting closer. I felt more anxiety and panic as I felt like I was conscious. I told myself I have to try and wake myself up. I looked around at nothingness and back in front of me both were getting closer. I held up my hand to see if I was really there. I looked at it and it was definitely my hand (I have a black dot a couple of centimeters down from my middle finger that I got from a felt tip pen years ago.)

    When I looked at my hand I had put it right in the middle of the two objects. The triangle was in front and the point of light behind (which was getting bigger/closer.) My hand blocked the light but I then saw an eye in the palm of my hand and the triangle settled around my hand and stopped, I then had a flash of looking into the tunnel which was full of the same colours that made up the triangle, not solid always changing. At that point I managed to wake myself up. I was standing in my bedroom and I was looking at my hand.

    I saw a dream at 6am today, that I am showing my right hand palm to a palmist. He told me that his prediction can never be wrong. He held my palm, to examine it. I showed him a swastika sign on my palm, which is on the mount of Jupiter. He saw everything and said nothing, and lay down on a bed and slept. I could not understand the meaning of this dream. It is fact that i have a swastika sign on mount of Jupiter on my right hand palm.
