Do you have the Self-Reliant Head Line? If the start of the Head Line is separated from the beginning of the Life Line, the owner’s thought system will be independent of his or her family of origin, acting autonomously.
If you have this marking of self-reliance, you prefer to figure things out on your own. For example, if you must decide whether to get married or divorced, go to college or quit college, start a job or change vocations, you rely on the resources of your own choosing, which may not include family input.
The handprint above belongs to one of the children in Project Snowflake. I initiated a formal project in early 2010 to observe the changes in the handprints of twelve children starting at ages between five days to eight years old. At the time of this printing she was fifteen years of age. As a youngster, her mental system did not match those of her parents as closely as one might think, even though they lived in a loving and supportive country home environment. She showed signs of operating on her own terms as early as age three. I first printed her hands when she was eight years old; she is now twenty-one. All of her handprints, spanning thirteen years, clearly show her tendency toward independence, freedom, and autonomy. She did her own thing on the soccer field in the sixth grade, not paying much attention to the position to which she had been assigned. At age fourteen, she snuck out of her bedroom in the middle of the night to meet her friends in the schoolyard. At eighteen, she has moved out of her home to work and attend college.
Keep in mind, no one marking tells a complete picture about someone’s character. Blending other eye-catching designs in the hands points to the theme of the owner’s life-story. As an example, combine this self-reliant Head Line with a Hermit Heart Line and the owner’s requirements for freedom and autonomy increase twofold. The Hermit Heart Line indicates necessity for sanctuary time, loyalty and productivity. The handprint above has a Hermit Heart Line, too.
Self-Reliant Positive: I have a large capacity to get the job done, especially when unsupervised.
Self-Reliant Negative: I don’t see the need for help very often, and this can make it challenging to team up with others toward a common goal.
Mantra: I relish in my independent mind, but I am open to receiving support from the team once in a while.
The Advocate Head Line originates inside and below the initiation of the Life Line, just above the inset of the thumb (see figure below). This is considered the Mars Mount. If you have this configuration you’re watchful and mentally alert. You can be headstrong about seeing both sides of the same coin. You’re a determined debater, but you can seem argumentative to someone not interested in debate.
The owner of the Advocate Head Line typically guards his or her thoughts, keeping them ready, in a sense, to defend his or her cause. He or she can be seen as prudish when his or her thoughts and resulting words contradict others. It might seem that this person is narrow-minded, but in actuality he or she thrives when seeing differently. Such a person makes an excellent social or political activist, waging war for the underdog.
One child I read for who had this marking kept answering my questions with other questions. It was hard to get anywhere with his quarrelsome character. You see, the Head Line, which represents the mental system, is dipping into the Mars Mount. Mars is a protector, capable of combat for his or her cause. The mental processor (Head Line) is fed by the courage and bravery of Mars, the warrior.
Extra warrior energy is available for use in the life of the owner when the Mars Mount is extra eye-catching to the naked eye or on a handprint. Additionally, if the shape of the hand (palm and fingers) is rectangular and looks like it could fit into a ‘shoebox’ (see illustration below) the owner must regularly communicate about his or her cause to feel a sense of fulfillment.
The late legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden did not want “yes-men” around him. He encouraged his assistant coaches to argue their points of view with him. He, in turn, responded strongly with his own opinions. Gary Cunningham, one of his head coaches said, “This was Coach Wooden’s way of testing how much the assistant coaches believed in what they were telling him and how much they knew about the points they were advocating.” But Coach Wooden also knew that it is difficult to effect positive change when you antagonize others. “The purpose of criticism is to correct, improve, and change; rarely to humiliate or embarrass,” he said. I didn’t see Coach Wooden’s hands, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he had the Advocate Head Line configuration. He was also a high-profile crusader helping people to be their personal best.
The shape of the Mercury Line reveals the nature of a person’s capacity and style for perceiving. Straight Mercury Lines belong to people who are curious and have keen insights. Curving Mercury Lines, as in Figure 1 below, belong to individuals who are in constant contact, consciously or unconsciously, with the celestial, attuned to messages from the Divine. Because this line bows around the Moon mound, you’ll find someone with a natural capacity for diving into crisis of meaning and somehow finding words to make sense of it. On their advanced path, they understand the meaning of life and construct careers as transformational coaches, life purpose consultants, spiritual advisors, life strategists, counselors and ministers.
The owner of a Mercury Line that arcs around the Moon is curious about and considers elements related to dreams, spirituality, the subliminal, unmet emotional needs, and the reality of beliefs. People with Mercury Lines resembling the Figure included in this article have most likely found themselves asking themselves, “What’s the point of living?” and/or “Why are we here?” during times of alienation, stagnation and feeling trapped in the illusion of separation from the self. While the potential of constant contact with the Divine is very high, equally and opposite is the possibility of not trusting what’s ‘coming in’ and remaining focused entirely on logic instead.
If you have this deeply curving Mercury Line, you most likely understand the feeling of disillusionment and disappointment with life. A sense of despair has led you to ask, “Why?” which is a crucial step toward listening inward for answers. As you stop struggling with the sense of desolation, let go of reason, and accept that you just don’t know why, you find that you surrender to higher intelligence, which then begins to operate through you. You can then allow and trust this special internal mechanism within you that is constantly attuned for deep inner awareness.
After teaching about of this type of Mercury Line in my certification program, one student with this configuration confirmed the description saying,
“I worked 14 years in a job where I had little to zero contact with other people. I worked on secret projects and could never talk about my work. I got sick a lot with migraine headaches, felt alone and numbed out. I finally quit that job because I realized life should not be just making money and paying bills. My heart was longing for freedom, freedom for creative expression. I craved deep, meaningful connections with people instead of just working on computers and projects in isolation.”
She has since developed her skills by becoming a Reiki Master /Healer, ThetaHealing® Practitioner, an influential speaker, and intuitive Scientific Hand Analyst and is now working as an inspirational counselor, interpreting the messages marked in the hands to the owners so that they can know why they are here and how to live with meaning in their lives.
After contemplating the interpretation of the Line of Intuition on her hand, another certified hand analyst told me:
“Yes, I do relate to the natural capacity for understanding the meaning in the life crisis -in my own and in other’s, and I have a near compulsion to explain it to a person who’s in the middle of a crisis. I can make sense of things (from an interior perspective), and when a person is asking for my input and is ready to receive it, I can help them make sense of their experiences. Explaining to someone who isn’t ready to hear it leaves me feeling unseen and misunderstood, and is probably boring or annoying for them. I find that my audience is not always interested, especially not at work so it is a challenge to moderate my natural intuitive communications to fit into the analytical workplace style. I’ve really developed a good practice and the experience to know and trust what’s coming in most of the time, and I can vouch for the experience of constant contact, anytime I put my attention on it, its there. But being immersed in the logic of my technology company workplace is like that unsettled, off balance feeling when you don’t trust your own gut. In the office there are lots of interruptions and I’m surrounded by people all the time. It’s a hectic place and instead of listening to and trusting my intuition, I’m usually just reacting to my environment. With the primary focus on logic for the job it’s hard to go deep and open up to listen and receive.”
Medical Intuitive Caroline Myss exemplifies what this marking is about as a translator of meaning through her lectures about the invisible energy system running through our bodies called the chakras. In her book Anatomy of the Spirit she interprets the symbols of the soul in easy to understand lessons. She has become very well known through helping people learn the language of the human energy system so that they can better understand themselves as a way through spiritual challenges. Her life revolves around deciphering meaning in everything around her. In her case she intuits illness as it relates to energetic power leaks within a person. Does she have this line on either of her hands, or both? I don’t know but I’d like to find out.
Intuition is a skill anyone can develop, and would benefit by doing so. If you don’t have this line in your hand it doesn’t mean that you’re not intuitive or cannot be intuitive. By having this Line of Clairvoyance there is a higher probability, on the path to mastery, that the challenges will be quite evident. What I mean by this is that reliance on logic and ignoring the hunches you’re getting will block development. I think of this simply as a road sign indicator letting you know you’re off track and ‘correction’ is needed. Will you trust what you are sensing from within?
Internal oppositions are normal. When they are recognized and brought together you’ll have the perfect ingredients for fuller expression of this gift of highly attuned perception.
Mantra: As I follow and trust myself through my own crisis of meaning I am able to skillfully support others through exploration of the deeper parts of themselves.
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!
