Makena and her mom are both on the path of Peace. I appreciated them taking a pause in their busy lives to stop by for a printing. Let’s watch, together, how Makena’s healership through writing develops. Her greatest potential is to transform lives with her writing. She has already written a poem and is working on a book!
Yesterday while I was walking along a fairly deserted road in the foothills below Sequoia National Park I was overcome by an acute sense of panic. It was hard to comprehend, at the time, because I was surrounded by some of the most majestic scenery on the planet. My stroll took me through Oak trees of all species, bumble bee quality flowering foliage, lush green mountains, romantic rocks, and the view of Alta Peak towering at 11,000 feet. I compare the view of Sequoia National Park to the Swiss Alps which I visited many years ago.
During the walk I was making a conscious effort to keep my feet on the ground and to ‘slow down’. My mind runs amok on an ‘occasional’ basis. The more I attempted to s l o w d o w n the more I was consumed with a greater sense of urgency to keep moving. I actually sensed a level of guilt for not doing more. Attempting to silence my mind put me in direct contact with its opposite: sheer panic. Why was this happening?
I have been rewarded quite nicely by society for accomplishing results and being in constant deed. If I slow down, “What will I do?” “Who will I be if I’m not doing something?” “OMG, I might die if I’m not producing something!”
These are real thoughts I experienced yesterday on what I had hoped would be a peaceful outing. It’s ironic that one of my highest priorities, right now, is to experience Stillness. Often is the case that our truest desire puts us in direct conflict with ‘its’ opposite. In this case: Silence vs pandemonium.
How does this happen? Conditioning, patterns and addictions have formulated the path of our existence. I’m addicted to working, producing, responsibilities, tasks, schedules and the call to perfection. I have to classify this as an addiction because of the reaction I have when I even think about not having these scenarios in my world. This doesn’t mean those ‘things’ are bad. I’m simply seeking an adjustment to my internal volume control. Might you relate?
There are specific configurations in the hands that can point to this type of internal feeding frenzy. See if you have any of these six designs in your hands or fingerprints. They involve either the Life Line or the Arch fingerprint.

Below are two markings in the palm of the hand to give me a clue that this 15-year-old is on a passionate exploration at Life U.
What I explained to her:
The purple line running across your palm at the top of the hand is your heart line. This type of line is called the Passionate heart line. This tells me that you like excitement and despise boredom. You can express your emotions with a fire-like nature – quick and blunt. This line also indicates that you are charismatic and people like to be around you, like they would a campfire. People become mesmerized by the ‘colors’ you exude – blue, red, purple, orange… all those fire-like colors. The passionate type usually does a good job at expressing her “I wants”. While you may not always get them, expressing what you want is healthy because you express the energy that wants to be expressed like a river unblocked by a damn. The upside of your heart line is that you are fun, outgoing, excitable, enthusiastic and passionate. On a ‘bad day’ you can move into YOUR ‘I wants’ too deeply and forget the desires of others. To balance this it’s good to maintain your desires AND also consider the desires of others.
The pink curving line toward the bottom outer edge of your palm tells me you seek out stimulation as an explorer and investigator. Again, boredom will drive you crazy so it’s good that you read and have many new opportunities at high school to satisfy your inquisitiveness. You can also think of this as being a line of curiosity; you like to keep things interesting. Seeking the un-ordinary is ordinary for you.
With the highest ranking fingerprint on your right ring finger, your Life purpose is the Artist – the Woman in the Spotlight being true to her muse. Expressing your SELF is the most important thing you can do – it’s what you came here to do. Your life challenge is to feel accomplished and successful while being true to YOU, standing your ground…. all on the life foundation of Peace and Harmony. I read your ‘challenge’ from your fingerprint patterns on your right Thumb, right middle finger and left ring finger. The arches on your fingerprints resemble mounds of the earth. The earth is secure and provides a solid foundation. You’ll feel best when you feel secure.
As with most things, to know one side you have to know the opposite. When it comes to Peace, a person, like you, will best know Peace by experiencing and moving through sensations of Panic. You may feel panic running through your body at different times under various circumstances. The best thing you can do is to BREATE your way through it and silently remind yourself that you ARE SAFE. You do have nice long vitality/life lines so you are able to ‘ground’ with ease.
Observations: What’s attention-grabbing is the paradoxical combination of the deep desire for peace and harmony along with the need to explore and investigate the unusual. Oddly enough, for this youngster, her tranquility could very well be found in her most stimulating adventures. With a flirtatious flair, she could push the envelope, dance to the edge and sing to the masses with the circ-de-sole, as an example.

Krishnamurti said, “Change in society is of secondary importance; that will come about naturally, inevitably, when you as a human being bring about this change in yourself.”
Only you can create the change you want to see in the world. To see differently you must first examine your own thoughts and actions. Then do something about that which no longer serves you. Consider one thing in your life that isn’t working for you anymore. Perhaps it’s an outdated belief, a relationship, a job, a personality trait, an addiction, a living condition, or simply a word. Visualize that ‘something’ that is not working for you any longer.
We can really get stuck in things that divide us from our core Self. On one hand we desire peace and harmony and on the other we thrive on problem solving or believing ‘this will get better’. Your intuitive self already knows the best way. However, your patterns fixate you to the reoccurring and comfortable routine.
If there is division within the self then there is conflict. Conflict is actually an excellent force toward that which you do want. So, do, be grateful for some level of internal disagreement and stress in your life. However, use your discernment skills to assess how much internal clash is helpful for you.
In my 20’s I worked in the Propulsion Lab of Hughes Space and Communications Company. To position a satellite in space, liquid fuel was stored in tanks, carried through titanium tubing and ignited to create forceful flames for thrusting and boosting. That burning fire is a source used to maneuver the spacecraft into the precise location and to keep it in position during its mission. Exacting balance is required and combustion is actually a pathway to stability.
The balancing act of life requires opposites. Transcendence of opposites brings a level of freedom because we are no longer attached to one side or the other. To evolve we must experience the negative and the positive. This doesn’t necessarily require discipline and control if the pattern can be recognized and modified or even released. THIS is tricky business. It’s not easy to see that which sits right before our very eyes. A certain kind of ‘seeing’ is needed.
Do you see with eyes of attachment or detachment? Which might be more useful? Or might a combination of the two be the best approach for positive change? Only you can decide for yourself related to your particular ‘something’ that you’d like to alter, modify, transform or revolutionize.
Suggestions for your inner revolution:
- Pinpoint your Truth – now
- Honor and aim for that Truth
- Do what it takes to stay on course
- Delight in your path
New prints of Beth’s hands taken in Jan. 2011 (below)
Check out her long right thumb (above). The long thumb shows the inclination to spend time ‘thumbing’ – arranging and rearranging. ‘The Orchestrator’ comes to mind. Combine this thumb description with her Life Purpose and Life Path and we get ‘The Orchestrator for Peace and Wholeness’.
Riley is one of my oldest snowflakes and one I have the most hand prints. Her mom and I have been best of friends since we were in 5th grade. View Riley below starting in Jan. 2010 traveling back in time to her prints in 2003.

Riley’s life purpose, her reason for being, is to lead others to their most creative and individualistic self. In the process, she too, is to be an authority for her own unique creative individualistic self. The key for Riley to live on purpose is to effectively manage her perceptions around her own feelings of ‘incompletion’ and boundary management. As she manages her boundaries and choices she generates a variety of passions. These passions then trigger feelings of accomplishment and success with peace and harmony.

Left print, above, in 2003 at age 7
Both prints show a variety of lines crossing through the hands which describe her firey nature – charasmatic, excitable, vivacious, lively and disliking bordom. The shape of her hands are square which shows her practical side. The Earth hand shape is typically reliable, honorable and dependable. Earth and fire come together in a kiln. At the right temperature the clay comes out in beautiful form. Archieologists dig up ancient pottery that has been preserved in the earth. Richard Unger assigns the word “Worker Bee” to the earth + fire hand. Riley is the worker-bee who needs exciting work to do.
Her head line does straighten out a bit between age 7 and 10 which would indicate a bit clearer thinking as she aged.
At the time the left print was taken below she was all about having a large territory to ‘grasp’. The angle of opposition of her thumb (the results department), extends a great distance away from her index finger, shows her comfort in holding space for a larger audience.
Left print, below, in Oct. 2006 at age 10
After comparing her left prints between 2003 and 2010 I continue to see a shadow life line. This is a life line inside of her main life line. This indicates great stamina to go, and go and go like the energizer bunny. This well of energy helps her achieve all of her planned activities – volley ball practice, acting lessons, homework, chores and more. On weekends she is known for easily sleeping until 11:00am. It is very important for the energizer bunny to rejuvinate to avoid burn out. If this double life line configuration stays in tact as she gets older she is most likely to hear comments like “How do you get so much done?” “When do you ever stop?’
Like anything else, this is a key balancing point for Riley – keeping the energy out pouring in balance with her body’s natural flow. Riley is learning important lessons about balance and harmony

The arch and the tented arch comprise about 5% of all fingerprint patterns found on the human finger tips and thumbs. The arch print looks like a mound. There is no tri-radii, as the whorl has, nor a tent pole like the ‘tented’ arch. The arch simply looks like a mole hill you might see in the yard. See the example below.
If you’ve been reading this series, you already know that your fingerprints were permanently engraved into your fingers and thumbs in utero 16 weeks after conception. Can you imagine this mark of nature created and then locked in even before the brain was developed?
Look at your own fingerprint patterns and see if you have any arches. If you see arches, count how many reside on your finger tips. Very few people have arches. Part one and two of this article series identified the whorl and the loop which account for about 95% of the fingerprint patterns.
If you have one arch, out of 10 digits you may be in the school of “Peace”. If you own two or more arches you are definitely in the school of “Peace” where you are developing your skills to feel safe in your body amidst massive amounts of chaos. To pass Life University, you contracted, from before birth, to visit this crazy planet to learn to experience peace and harmony. Masters of peace find ways to bring harmony and balance to the world.
If you have two or more arch prints you are developing the skills of alertness, presence, ease and purity. You’ll increase these profound attributes through repeated struggle, stress, anxiety and feeling behind. There is a method to the madness of the Universe and you are here to feel your body and to teach others to just “Be”.
In my mind, we are not here to be perfect. We are here to live consciously and fully. On the life path of Peace one is here to enrich life through their deep, deep, deep yearning for peace and calm. Is one at peace who is buried in projects up to their eye balls? Possibly. It’s up to the student to be aware of their level of peace and self-correct as needed.
People in the school of peace make fabulous fire fighters, emergency room tenants, SWAT team members, air traffic controllers in the middle of an earthquake, class-five white water rafter guides, professional motor cycle racers, sky dive teachers and mothers who have children in extraordinary circumstances. The peaceful fingerprints I have read belong to people in these arenas. Toggling between the Prozac and adrenal addiction is a sure sign of successful trail blazing for Peace. How could one become peace-FULL without experiencing the extremes?
The arches belong to those honoring the reliable force of nature in every way. In a sense they are taking responsibility for their role in ‘survival’ so that they experience stillness in both their work and play. They are able to balance work and play and feel secure, stable and safe.
The key to happiness on the life path of Peace is to breathe, get one job done at a time, and experience ‘existence’ as the root of a mighty Valley Oak tree. While all of us are actually all on the life path of Peace, those with two or more arches have chosen, from before birth, the opportunity to delve more deeply into the lessons on the student path.
Yes, it’s a turbulent sea at Life-U. Large ocean liners are constructed to handle the biggest of storms. You can too. Allow yourself to “Be” on the Master Path!
