Mantra for a Weak Life Line

Have you looked at your own or other people’s Life Lines to see what condition they are in? Maybe you have seen one or two broken or weaken Life Lines along with a few strong and robust ones, too.

It’s important to understand that every marking in the hand can have a positive and a negative possibility in it’s interpretation. Our minds do the same thing. We can think in a positive or negative way. It’s all about perspective.

All negative possibilities offer shadow wisdom. Shadows are created by light. We grow stronger as we open to our weaknesses and shine the light of awareness on them. If you decide to, you can learn to use your weaknesses, bring them to the light, and bloom into your most amazing life.

In my book, Your Life Is In Your Hands, you’ll find a “mantra” associated with most of the markings described in the book. I use the word “mantra” to imply the integration of the positive and negative interpretations of these markings into powerful affirmations. These mantras are designed and intended to uplift you into realizing your highest potential.

Weak (short, frayed, scattered, or broken) Life Lines Key Words: Restlessness, up rootedness, insistence, burnout

Weak Life Line Positive: I’m on heightened alert, attentive to getting many things accomplished, with opportunities to renew and rebuild

Weak Life Line Negative: I’m susceptible to burn out when I do too much (too much is defined by you, not the world); feeling out of balance and depleted.

Mantra: With ease, I equalize work, play and rest. I breathe in the nature of life.

You may want to write this mantra on a sticky-note and post it where you’ll see it frequently. It could transform your world!

What Broken Life Lines Represent

A broken Life Line can indicate a very difficult circumstance usually involving a serious physical situation. Examples clients have told me about include an injury such as a head trauma, a life-changing event such as divorce, moving to another state, unexpectedly changing colleges, abruptly ending a sports career because of knee surgery, or death in the family. Events associated with a broken Life Line can be seen in a positive or negative way, but either way a broken Life Line probably represents a needed wake-up call. For example, one woman with a break in her Life Line had very destructive behaviors, such that her husband divorced her and took custody of their children. She saw the separation in a negative way, but the divorce helped her to realize that she would benefit by making positive changes for healthier behaviors. This woman suffered the physical change of the unwanted divorce at the age of the break on her Life Line.

In my observations and in the life histories of my clients, issues of physical security correlate to Life Lines at the approximate ages shown in the Figure below.

Life Line Time Line AAHA

Approximate time line on the Life Line (above)

Important note: The hand analysis I practice is not predictive. If you see a broken Life Line do not assume any of the above examples my clients have told me about will actually occur in someone else’s life in the future based on this approximate time line. Why? Because a break will represent something different in every person’s life, and life circumstances and lines in the hand can change. Making a prediction about the future is simply inappropriate.  It is said, ‘Only Heaven knows.”

Figure below shows the hand of a man who told me of a life-threatening event that occurred to him when he was a child. Notice the break in his Life Line between the age of five and ten.

Broken Life Line AAHA

At age 6 he was thrown into a river along with his brother who was 8. At 6 he was terrified as he was thrashed along the current until he reached the edge of the river. He hid under the brush to hide from the older brothers who had chucked him into the river because they were watching for him along the riverbank.

Today this man is a great swimmer. In his adult life he has played key roles in planning for and monitoring the safety of people at large events, as well as providing security for his own children. His broken Life Line, even between age 5-10 on the time line, reveals his continual need for safety and security.

A short or weak Life Line represents a shorter than average anchor line to the earth. When the tether to the earth is weak, there is an inclination to “hover above” the world, or to feel lost at sea. Oftentimes there was a requirement early in life to take on so much responsibility that time for play had to be sacrificed. One client with a short Life Line told me how survival issues show up for him.

He explained, “Before I know it, I’m rationalizing starting the day earlier and earlier and ending later and later. I’m working fourteen-hour days as an average. There is a constant and never-ending continuation of tasks leading to my insanity.”

When I asked what has helped him, he said, “I’ve learned to see my big jobs as smaller jobs. I break large chunks of responsibility and work into smaller chunks. I can breathe easier as I settle down with bite-sized jobs.”

Breaking tasks into manageable portions is a healthy strategy for addressing the overwhelming frenzy that can gradually consume a person with a short or broken Life Line. If you have this type of Life Line remember to b r e a t h e. In this spirit, my friend William Sullivan wisely said, “when looking at building many a mile of fence, it’s best to take it one post at a time.”

Watch for my next article with key words, weak Life Line in the positive and negative, and a mantra to inspire internal balance.

Five Additional Variables for Vocational Hand Analysis – Part III

Five additional variables to look for in the hands when doing a vocational analysis are:

1. The Finger Zones are essential features because the size, length, width and girth give a striking clue as to additional emphasis regarding the owner’s ideal niche. Typically, one of the 12 finger zones, or sections, is most eye-catching. The most noticeable finger section directs me to inquire with the owner about his or her skill or desire in the related area. Below are high-level descriptions related to each of the finger zones.

Index/Jupiter Middle/Saturn Ring/Apollo Pinkie/Mercury
Upper Zone Visionary Wisdom Studies Mental arts Brainstorming
Middle Zone Ambition Security Design Negotiations
Lower Zone Territory Foundations Display Sex energy

As you know, desires are not always pursued for a variety of reasons. And skills are not always developed. However, the most-visible zone must be considered if the owner wishes to find fulfillment.

2.  Thumbs are one of the most important considerations when determining if working for others or the self would be favorable. As an example, Oprah’s thumbs span widely from her palm. This large area between her hand and the tip of her thumb shows desire for a wide range of influence. The wider the angle between hand and thumb tip, the bigger the territory the owner must have to manage. Likewise, the closer the thumb rests to the hand, the less responsibilities he or she wishes to administer. He or she would do better, and most likely prefer, to be employed for someone else, leaving work at the same time each day.

3.  The length and quality of the Fate Line (vertical line climbing from the bottom of the hand up toward the middle finger) reveals drive toward values, which in turn equate to money. A long, noticeable vertical line rising toward the middle finger shows a person with their foot on the gas and hands on the steering wheel with a clear plan, direction and determination.

4.  The Life Line shows the level of vitality available to the owner. Deep, long and curving Life Lines indicate stamina, recuperation skills and physical balance. Life Lines that are short or frayed show a scattering of energy; the anchor typically keeping a buoyant ship in place is untethered.

5.  A variety of other markings in the hands would also be considered. There are too many to mention here.

Keep in mind, no one indicator in the hand will uncover the vocational solution. The ingredients must be artistically combined to expose the inner masterpiece waiting to shine.

To summarize, the first component in the hand to assess for vocational selection is the hand. So far we considered the following variables (shape, lines and markings):

– Hand Shape archetype

– Dominant finger

– Strongest Mount

– Heart Lines

– Gift Markings

– Finger Zones

– Thumbs

– Fate Lines

– Life Lines

– Other Markings

In Part IV we’ll consider the soul’s curriculum encoded in the fingerprints

How to Find Your Right Vocation Part II

When we live on our natural path effort is unnecessary. Think of a river as it naturally flows over rocks and around bends. The river is not working- yet there is a tremendous force of nature at work – carving deep canyons into mountains.

This is my objective – to help you find your powerful flow so you can be free of effort – and it’s literally designed in the palms of your hands.

When properly understood and interpreted, the hands clearly identify the potential skills, attributes, talents, strengths and preferences of an individual, as well as the potential weaknesses and blocks to overcome. A skillful hand reading and coaching with a professional can greatly change the direction and perception for possible career options. While your hand reader will offer insightful guidance, it is entirely up to you to choose what is best and right for you. The concrete and unique information in the hands can remove the guess-work as to what is the best vocation. One’s natural path for “right” work is literally etched in the palms and fingerprints. Your hand reader is the translator of that information to you, as the client.

Key components:

1) The hand (shape, lines and specific markings)

2) The fingerprints (life path, purpose and lesson)

As a scientific hand analyst I use the following checklist to begin my vocational assessment using the first component – the hand. I focus on the right hand first because it is typically considered the dominant hand.

–   Hand Shape archetypal combinations reveal temperament and preferences. One is motivated toward what is important to him or her. As an example, productivity and reliability is important to the Earth handed person while impressions and relationships are important to the water handed person.

–  Dominant fingers act as antennas transmitting and receiving potencies and areas of interest. For example, a person with a straight, tall and upright middle (Saturn) finger will place value in organization, structure, discipline and responsibility.

Now, if you blend an Earth hand with a dominant middle finger the owner will feel best in work with organizational structures providing productive and reliable outcomes – as in road construction. Rules and simplicity will be important. Conversely, the Water hand blended with a dominant middle finger will find the owner attracted to discipline and order in relationships. You may find him or her rehearsing lines for an upcoming stage performance, molding to the impression of the character he or she will play. 

–  The fullest Mount on the palm will show an excess reservoir of energy for use. For example, if the fullest Mount is around the ball of the Thumb (Venus zone), then the owner will be inclined to socialize, play and indulge in luxury.

–  The Heart Line provides clues as to the non-negotiable emotional requirements of the owner. A long curving up to the index finger Heart Line type will want to connect with people. Conversely, a short, straight Heart Line would rather work alone and complete projects and tasks.

–  Gift Markings pinpoint unique signatures to embody and shine into the world. Associated obstacles accompany each gift marking to help point the way to it’s advanced path.

The above are a few considerations your vocational hand analysis session will include to build a theme for your life’s most fulfilling work.

Part 3 will include five additional variables to consider in the hand when selecting a vocation.

Interview with Caroline Douglas

Caroline Douglas
Caroline Douglas, AAHA CHA

With great pleasure, I introduce you to Artist and Hand Analyst, Caroline Douglas.

When and how did you start reading hands?

After I had mine read by Baeth Davis in 2008, I thought what a profound healing tool. So I began studying it and taking classes, eventually being Certified with you Kay.

Are you specializing in any particular area of hand analysis? If so, what is it?

I am not focusing on any one thing, but I do seem to attract really creative people. I also see a lot of gift markings…. maybe since I have so many too :o)

What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?

I love how validating it is for people, how they often feel seen for the first time in a real way. Also, it is a great way for me to use my gifts of insight and healing and it is a great connector in a profound way.

Has your life lesson ever shown up during a reading?  If so, how and what did you learn from that experience?

Well yes, my life lessons… I have several, but the one that trumps them all is left Saturn- guilt and unworthiness. So especially in the beginning of reading hands, I would doubt myself and what I was seeing. But after expressing what I saw, it got easier and I had more certainty when people were so touched by it.

How do you apply your life purpose and your life lesson, in other words, how do you see them work together?

Good question! My life purpose of Public Impact in the Healing Arts is always pushing me to be sharing my story of how I healed myself after a head injury through art and to be creative in the spotlight. My lessons are incompletion, powerlessness and unworthiness. They contribute to me holding back and preferring to hide through self-doubt. Two books come to mind… Art and Fear (which describes in detail all the resistances we can come up with to avoid creating) and Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway, which is the story of my life!

Caroline’s fingerprint patterns

Loop Loop Loop Peacock Peacock

Do you have a bad experience you can share to help others avoid a similar situation?

I did a couple reading where one had a Simian. I fell into confusion while trying to validate both people. I felt frustrated that the reading was not more help for them. Basically I couldn’t heal their relationship. It was only later that I realized that I was doing the best I could and that I need to be clear about boundaries and setting an intention.  I did another couple’s reading right after that so I could get over that fear. And that one was great! And who’s to say the first one was not great, too, just that it stirred things up. Sometimes that is what is needed for healing to happen.

What advice would you give to new students of Hand Analysis?

Trust yourself and practice a lot! It will be very healing for you, too.

What intentions do you have for your Hand Analysis practice during the next six months?

I want to get caught up with all the readings I need to do!

Bully Buster

Do you have the markings of a bully buster? Look at the Inner Mars zone in the palms of your hands.  One of many key words for this zone is stamina.

Mars Zone

 

When looking at your Mars zone, either hand, do you see any of the following markings:

– Fullness/puffiness
– Star (6 pointed asterisk)
– Whorl
– The start of your Head Line
– Grills

Mars Star

 Mars star in left hand (above)

Mars Whorl

Whorl in the Mars zone (above)

AAHA Debater Head Line w Mars

 Head Line starts inside and below the start of the Life Line (above)

Grill in Mars

Grill/ladder effect in the Mars zone (above)

Standing up for the underdog brings fulfillment to the owner with a well marked Mars zone. Mars is the archetype for the warrior and he (or she) needs a cause, something to stand for, to protect. A star shows the gift of bravery. The whorl indicates a life purpose where his or her exceptional courage is exercised. With the Head Line starting inside the Life Line, the owner will do well to advocate for those who are unable to stand up for themselves – such as mistreated animals, foster children, or battered women – to name a few. However, if this hero-type doesn’t have an appropriate cause for all this energy, he or she just may end up feeling cowardly, or the opposite – rageful. Just like the Lion in “Wizard of Oz,” owners of one or more of the markings above must have a bold and fearless course of action to devote their enthusiasm toward.

What Makes an Exceptional Teacher?

Kay Packard

What Makes an Exceptional Teacher?

When looking for a teacher in the professional healing arts, and specifically hand analysis, there are many aspects to take into consideration.  High quality teachers have an extensive knowledge of the subject matter, curriculum and standards, a caring attitude, and a love of learning; experience facilitating groups of individuals and expectations, a desire to make a difference in the lives of students, and those lives who the student will touch.

– Exceptional teachers set high expectations for all students while meeting each student where she is emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.

– Exceptional teachers have clear, written-out objectives for each class and/or program. With integrity, they follow through with commitments. Students do better when they have a clear idea what to expect and receive what is expected.

– Exceptional teachers are prepared and organized. They are in their classrooms (and tele-calls) early and ready to teach. They offer homework assignments and hands-on practice plans to build subject knowledge.

– Exceptional teachers help students see differently. Effective teachers use intuition, scientific facts (reliable and repeatable data) while also asking “why” questions. Students learn better when they are challenged to look at all sides of the subject matter and are given plenty of time to ask and answer questions.

– Exceptional teachers communicate effectively, engage all students and treat each student with dignity and respect.

– Exceptional teachers form strong heart-centered relationships with their students and show that they care. They are warm, enthusiastic, considerate and caring. Students feel supported when their teachers are available to them during and outside of scheduled class time.

– Exceptional teachers are masters of their subject and spend time continuing to gain knowledge in their field of expertise. They present the material with enthusiasm and instill hunger in their students to study and practice.

– Exceptional teachers help students build confidence through praise, appropriate correction, and individualized guidance.

– Exceptional teachers pursue and exhibit life experience to support their curriculum and overall teaching objectives.

– Exceptional teachers give the student cause to be both fulfilled and delighted about the learning institution or academy where they are or have been taught.

– Exceptional teachers gratefully acknowledge their sources of content and pay homage to their revered teachers and mentors.

Momentous Life Change – Embracing the mystery

A blast from the past; in my newsletter released May 19, 2009

Sail boat

 

Momentous Life Change 

Embracing the Mystery 

A significant change was set into motion, for me, this past week.  After twenty-three years working for Boeing, I am switching ‘careers’.  The security of a bi-weekly paycheck will cease to exist on June 18, 2009. That symbol of regularity, reliability and ‘safety’ is being replaced with the adventure of the unknown. I will embrace the mystery of life in a new way.  

This is a huge step for me, when I consider where I began. I was lovingly influenced, by a financially lacking and divorced mother to work, plan, study, learn, and create financial independence. I remember one early evening vividly. My mother was outside, pounding her clinched fists on the cinder block wall of our house screaming, “I hate this house, I hate this house!” I think I was around eleven years old. Home maintenance requirements and expended personal energy hence triggered her advice to avoid those troubling situations. From that early age, I was, in a sense, traumatized by her material fixation, the lack, and the emotional pain. That was when I started working. Baby-sitting initiated my resume. I needed to work and earn money to avoid the potential agony related to being ‘without’. 

Now at age forty-five, after doing my ‘time’ in the corporation, I’m pursuing my dream, my love, my calling. A calling is what our inner voice compels us to Be. We only need to listen.  Monkey-mind chatter and outside influences are insistent and must be managed if we are to listen, hear and heed the call of our inner identity. 

Through this change process, I discovered a level of courage I hadn’t experienced before. I contemplated the idea and mentally prepared for this change for the last three years. I created an ‘exit plan’ and used all of the healing tools I have been exposed to as well as re-reading teaching ‘detachment’ and ‘inquiry’.  

Intention to honor our heart’s desire often goes against the grain of mainstream thinking. When I began telling people I was planning to leave Boeing I got responses like “Are you crazy?”, “In a time like this?”, “Can you make it financially doing your healing practice?” “It’s not a good time to quit your job!” and “You’ve got balls when so many people don’t have jobs.”  After I shifted my attitude from fear to love; love for my ‘calling’ I received amazing support from my friends and colleagues.  

So now, I’m thrilled to announce myself as a full-time Guide for Positive Change. This work parallels that of a trail guide, one who leads the way for other pioneering and adventuring souls. I knew, from deep within, 5 years ago that I wanted to be an outstanding Hand Analyst – to read and decode the fingerprint patterns and reveal the life purpose and life lesson to the owner of the hands. I announced it loudly and confidently on the first day of my Year Long Hand Analysis training program. Then two years ago I found EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and like-wise, fell in love with this modality for emotional, mental and physical balance and release.  And most recently, I began practicing Reiki. Reiki, pronounced ray – key, is in an ancient Japanese method of stress reduction and relaxation.  All modalities are being integrated into my practice.  I also conduct workshops for personal empowerment. I want to offer methods to help everyone get to their own personal truth, in their own way, in their own time.  We’re doing it together – deeply and completely. 

 I am ever grateful to my Mom, Rosemary, who introduced me to astrology and my first book on palm reading. Her metaphysical interest also guided me to The Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes and the Vedanta. I suppose her struggles sent her on the search to understand ‘it all’ and her essence has definitely overflowed to me. “Hooray for our side” she used to say.

Relationship symbols, stories and strategies, Part II

The Heart Line – Relationship symbols, stories and strategies Part II

by Kay Packard 

“The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart.” Rumi

A relationship works best when you attend to the beauty of the relationship. You can deepen your understanding of your own and someone else’s essential love style by deciphering one line in the hand—the Heart Line. In Part I of The Heart Line, I covered the Hermit Heart Line. Today, lets identify the Passionate and the Big Heart Heart Lines and understand the non-negotiable needs they reveal in relationship.

Four Steps to Analyzing the Heart Line

Step 1. Locate the Heart Line carved in your hands.

Step 2. Starting on the outside edge of the palm, follow the line and note in which section of the imaginary quadrant your Heart Line ends.

Step 3. Read the associated descriptions.

Heart Line Styles

Identification: The Heart Line starts on the outer edge of the palm under the pinkie finger and runs horizontally across the palm. The line may be straight or curved and long or short. It usually ends somewhere beneath the middle or index finger. Any Heart Line style is possible on a hand. You may also find a different Heart Line on each hand.

Heart Line Shapes

The shape of the Heart Line indicates preferred characteristics when relating to others and corresponds to sections in an imaginary quadrant, as we will see in Fig. 1. Curvy lines belong to expressive people who typically show their feelings easily. The Big Heart and the Passionate types have curvy lines. They exhibit their feelings more than those with flat or straight Heart Lines. Straight lines belong to people who are more reserved. They present their feelings reluctantly. The Hermit and the Rational Romantic types have flat Heart Lines. They are less likely to display their emotions outwardly.

The Heart Line Quadrant

As illustrated in Part I, the imaginary quadrant has four sections (see fig. 1 below). To position the quadrant, on one hand at a time, draw an imaginary line straight down between the index and middle finger. Next draw an imaginary horizontal line across the vertical line about half an inch from base of fingers. Now, determine which section your Heart Line ends. 

AAHA Heart Line Types

 Fig. 1 Assigned names depending on section of the quadrant where the Heart Line terminates

Names are assigned to the Heart Line type depending on which section the Heart Line ends. Look to see in which section of the quadrant your Heart Line ends on both hands.

The Passionate

Passionate Heart

 Fig. 2 The Passionate Heart

The Passionate Heart Line curves up toward the middle finger (Fig. 2). It touches the top of the palm and ends in the upper right section of the quadrant under the middle finger. The dotted arrow shows a piece of the Heart Line but it is not considered when determining the termination point of this Heart Line.

If you are the Passionate Heart, you are likely enthusiastic, expressive and even flirtatious. You have the charisma to be the life of the party. Your natural design is like the campfire, attracting people to warmth. It’s crucial for you to express your wants, even when others might not seem to appreciate your directness. You tend to be happiest, when you do expose your desires. Your biggest challenge is being stuck with people you consider boring. You can be so intense that when you feel something passionately, it shows. A word of caution though—that little campfire can turn into a forest fire if its not contained. I remind the Passionate Heart to display his or her wildest passions and be considerate of the needs of others. At your best you bring an excitement and charisma to the scene. Your challenge is to remember the emotional needs of others.

Affirm: I am claiming my desires and expressing my passion with grace and consideration.

The Big Heart 

Big Heart Line

 Fig. 3 The Big Heart section of the quadrant

 The Big Heart curves up toward the index finger. It touches the top of the palm and ends in the upper section of the quadrant under the index finger or closer to the index finger than the middle finger (In Fig. 2 see the arrow between the index and middle fingers).

If you are the Big Heart, you feel emotions keenly and are warmhearted, caring and nurturing of others. You like connecting with other people and animals. Your favorite song might be All You Need is Love by the Beatles. My friend Kit calls the owner of this line “The Sweet Heart.” Your natural design is like a water droplet that joins the pool at the base of a waterfall. Seeing others bond during a special gathering warms your heart. Your feelings are hurt if people suddenly disconnect with you or you witness detachment and conflict between loved ones. Your biggest challenge is to nurture yourself along with others and not fall victim to emotional sell-out. If, in your view, someone disconnects from you abruptly, you might take it personally and become overly critical of yourself, blaming yourself (or another) for the separation. I remind the Big Heart to look at the truth of the change or separation in the relationship to help you accept yourself and all your feelings in all stages of the relationship. At your best you help people feel loved and cared for while also spending some time alone nurturing yourself. On a bad day, you can easily lose yourself in the drama of others and feel like a victim.

Affirm: I am the love I seek and long to embody.

No Heart Line is better than another. What’s important is to register and claim your natural love style. I’ve seen troubles brew when someone thinks he or she should behave like a snail when really he or she is a gazelle.

You and Your Personal Super Computer

You and Your Personal Super Computer

Published in Valley Voice, January 2, 2014

By Kay Packard

The Head Line in your hands illustrates the unique operations of your mental system. Just as your computer has a CPU (central processing unit), you do, too. You employ your mental system when you plan dinner, a vacation and your New Year resolutions. In hand analysis, the length, shape and quality of this line are associated with how you comprehend information and make decisions. The Head Line is associated with the element of air. Consider what happens in the air around you; information flows. This line is one of the three major lines in the palm. The other two major lines are the Life (see Nov. 21 issue) and Heart Lines.

The Head Line starts on the inside of the palm, above the inset of the thumb, and extends across the middle of the hand (see figure 1). Head Lines are different on every hand. They range in length from short to very long. The shapes are straight and flat, rounded downward, and deeply curving toward the wrist (see fig. 2).

As invisible radio signals travel through the airwaves, so too do your ideas, thoughts, concepts, theories and perceptions surge though your internal airways. These channels represent your mental wiring system. Nature has created an etching in your hand to depict how your unique computer system is programmed. How you plan, reason, analyze, and integrate ideas can be read from your Head Lines. The Head Line on your left hand shows how you think at home and the Head Line on your right hand shows how you reason at work, in the outer world.

Owners of short Head Lines tend to make decisions quickly. When I asked a hand analysis student with a short Head Line how she decided to buy her very lucrative stocks she replied, “I did a quick analysis and bought!” She got a tip from a friend and simply liked the products she was investing in. People with short Head Lines draw conclusions more quickly than people with longer Head Lines and if the line is also clear, they’re not likely to change their mind.

The longer the line, the more time is spent ‘on-line’ considering and compartmentalizing information. When one of my students with a long, straight Head Line started a business he created a lengthy business plan, with extensive cost analysis, and purchased a high tech email system with elaborate features for maintaining contacts and selling products. He expressed many ideas to get his business off the ground and to expand. He’s also writing a book and leading workshops.

When the Head Line is long, clear of obstruction, extends straight across the hand and terminates about ½ inch before the edge of the palm (fig. 1) you’ll find the octopus brain. This person won’t feel fulfilled unless he or she has an avenue to use his or her multifaceted brain. All legs of the octopus must be in synthesis mode for the owner to feel a deep sense of satisfaction.

Fig 1 Long Head Line

 

Fig. 1 Long, straight and flat Head Line: Synthesizer

Children with long Head Lines need enough intellectual challenge to keep them busy with school and home projects otherwise they may very well create problems with siblings, friends or school mates.

One 8-year-old in my Project Snowflake showed me his hands with a broken Head Line.  For a fraction of an inch the line was broken but soon resumed and continued toward the edge of the hand. His sister told me that he would stop talking midstream of telling a story. I asked her not to complete his sentences for him, knowing that he’d get back ‘online’ and complete his thought. He’s now 11-years-old and his Head Line is reattached

Adults with this very long headline are capable of multi-tasking and require colossal complexity through projects at work and home. If you have this Head Line, a sure sign to know you’re not fully using your potential, is relationship problems. If you initiate a problem in a relationship with your spouse or sister, then you have a juicy problem to wrestle with.

Check the quality of the line. Is your Head Line etched smoothly without obstruction? If yes, the more clear your thinking. Does it break then restart at a new point? If there is a break or interruption in the line, then you will most likely experience your mental computer flipping off line and rebooting every now and then.

Fig 2 Long curving head line

Fig. 2 Long, curving Head Line down toward the wrist: Sensitive

The deep, curving Head Line (fig. 2) signifies a person who is deeply reflective, creative and perceptive in their thinking. Deep meaning in life influences their ideas and considerations. They are sensitive and responsive to their environment including people’s feelings. The deeply curving Head Line implies a gift of hidden and consuming emotion, where there is no reason, and the genius to understand others who enter into their world of deep waters. If they aren’t already, I suggest to my clients with long, curing Head Lines to involve themselves in hospice or other deeply caring health care.

Keep in mind; no Head Line is better than another. The way a person processes information is simply the way a person processes information. Consider that everyone comprehends information differently; people make decisions in different ways. A mentor once said, “Seek to understand, then to be understood.” Taking time to better understanding your own methods for decision-making and considering another’s different way of decision-making can generate patience and compassion when relating to others.
