Jim Barker, Palm Reader


Continuing with my psychic series, I met with Jim Barker, palm reader in Seattle.  I was curious as to how one discovered they had talents in palm reading. Jim told me he discovered a book on how to palm read in his grandparents’ attic in Ohio.  He, of course, wanted to try it on someone and his older brother was his first guinea pig.  His older brother immediately went and told their Catholic mother who was horrified of course.


Jim has come a long way from reading his brother’s palm in the attic. He’s studied and practiced his art for over twenty years now.  His readings tend to be on the more optimistic side and, if my impromptu reading was any indication, pretty accurate.   His mother no longer considers it evil, she now considers it a gift from the Holy Spirit.
