Hand Analysts: How to Become More Precise When Giving a Hand Reading
By Kay Packard
When learning anything new we must first take baby steps before walking and then running. The same is true in learning how to read hands and fingerprints.
The foundation for readings hands is to learn what the sections of the hands and fingers signifies. Next is to understand the meaning of the symbol, line, color and prominent areas of the hand.
For example, in my last article on the Jupiter Star I pointed out the location of the Jupiter Mount, the archetypal significance Jupiter and the effects of the twinkling star in one’s life. In short, at her best, the owner of the Jupiter Star is high achieving and has the gift of influence and leadership over a fitting territory. On the down side she could be lacking confidence, avoiding confrontation and hanging out behind the throne.
To become more accurate and pinpointing when giving a reading the professional hand analyst will blend two markings she sees in the hands. For instance, when a hand has a Jupiter Star and a Line of Persephone the advancing reader will blend the explanations for the Line of Persephone (aka Guide for Lost Souls) to rise strong in her call to influence a particular territory.
While many Guides for Lost Souls, who I have read for, owning the Line of Persephone are often trapped in the downside possibility of the marking, my aim is to empower them with the potential of becoming Queen of the Underworld empowering other lost souls to find their strength and choose to re-surface from the land of Hades (during spring and summer).
As a reader, I must have a conversation to assess where the Guide for Lost Souls currently dwells on the life pendulum of feeling trapped in despair versus overseeing wounded souls. Lost souls can include abandoned dogs, foster children, recovering substance users, hospice patients; basically, anyone who is ‘slothing through the sludge’ (phrase shared by Certified Hand Analyst Isadora Arielle).
Jupiter Star key words: Powerlessness, overwhelm, high achieving, ambition, influence, leadership, throne
Phrases when combining the two markings
Totally trapped, confused, lost, overwhelmed with grief, paralyzed in fear of confrontation
High achieving guide for disoriented souls
Way shower for bewildered and disheartened individuals shining a bright light for uplift and encouragement
Directing a center(s) for revitalized and thriving wayward souls
A Critical Factor
Discussing the negative path is critical for the advancement of this powerful combination because of the indicated subconscious patterns in day-to-day living (e.g. in grief, overwhelm, powerlessness). Clients feel wholly seen when they hear about the paralyzing effects by which they have been seized, often for years. The validating analysis, read in the hands, paints a realistic picture of optimism for growth and transformation, and ultimately – freedom.
I recently watched 91-year-old concentration camp survivor, therapist and author, Edith Eva Egar who was interviewed by Oprah on Super Soul Sunday. In her book The Choice: Embrace the Possible she wrote, “Our painful experiences aren’t a liability—they’re a gift. They give us perspective and meaning, an opportunity to find our unique purpose and our strength.”
Dr. Egar also said, “Here you are! In the sacred present. I can’t heal you—or anyone—but I can celebrate your choice to dismantle the prison in your mind, brick by brick. You can’t change what happened, you can’t change what you did or what was done to you. But you can choose how you live now. My precious, you can choose to be free.”
Dr. Edith Eva Egar facilitates patients’ uncovering past trauma and healing. Simply, the title of the book conveys the power in the combination of influential Jupiter with the Guidance of Persephone as the Queen of the Underworld.
Death with Dignity across the U.S. supporting the terminally ill to die on their own terms.
A Jewish woman dedicated to helping concentration camp survivors die peacefully by facilitating forgiveness toward their German perpetrators.
Tip to Identify the Key in the Hand
Hand Readers, play with blending. Your clients will love you for it. And yes, blend in a third and fourth marking to get to the key in the hand. With practice you will get to the central theme and unique story to help your client realize her greatest potential and give her golden nuggets for expanding into her most sacred life.
“Having a dream is what keeps you alive. Overcoming the challenges makes life worth living.” Mary Tyler Moore
The owner of a long head Line that curves deep into the palm considers ideas, thoughts, and activities that are influenced by deep meaning in life. People with this type of Head Line have felt the trap that Persephone felt after Hades kidnapped her (image above) to make her his wife. Held against her will, Persephone was trapped in the dark, dismal, gloomy Underworld.
Your life is not your own
If you have this deeply curving head Line, you most likely understand the feeling of depression. It doesn’t mean you are depressed but you know what it means to be depressed. Like Persephone, you have experienced despair associated with “your life not being your own.” You are sensitive and responsive to your environment, including the feelings of all beings.
As she matured
As Persephone matured she opened her heart to Hades and to the other lost souls ensnared in the underworld. Likewise, as you mature you develop a deep compassion for others that can develop into life work as a guide for people who have been led astray or trapped.
Queen of the Underworld
A deeply curving head Line represents a potential path to mature into the Queen of the Underworld, handling hidden and all-consuming emotion, where reason has no place. Persephone also knew that she would return to the bright world above in spring each year. You have a genius for understanding others who enter into their own world of deep and unpredictable waters.
Long, curving Head Line, toward the wrist
The power of choice
After describing the implication of this type of head Line to one client, she confirmed the analysis saying, “Oh, yes, that’s me.” Unexpectedly, I dive into a very dark place. I’m used to it now, so I have a mini fridge in my room with ice cream in it. I comfort myself on my favorite fluffy bedspread with DVDs next to my TV. I do know I’ll eventually resurface to everyday life.” Persephone did resurface out of the darkness, after choosing to do so, and realized her power in the decision and in her journey.
Guide for Lost Souls Positive: I am able to be fully and completely present with deep sadness, maintain compassion, and steer others to their inner light.
Guide for Lost Souls Negative: Immobile, I remain a victim of kidnapping by hopelessness, believing I have no way out.
Mantra: I willingly open myself to deep emotion and am appropriately available to myself and other lost souls ready to “come back to life,” again, feeling joy.

In this short lesson you will learn about a powerful gift marking called the Jupiter Star. The owner of this marking has the gift of influence and leadership.
The Jupiter archetype can be owned by both women and men; adults, teens and children. The owner of a Jupiter Star is gifted with exceptional vision, the ability to wield power and requires a fitting throne to feel most fulfilled. And above all, he or she has the ambition of a super achieving Valedictorian (named by Richard Unger).
In Roman mythology Jupiter was known as the god of the sky and king of gods. His identifying implement was the thunderbolt, his sacred animal was the eagle and his sacred tree was the oak.
According to Wikipedia, “As the sky-god, he was a divine witness to oaths, the sacred trust on which justice and good government depend.”
To understand this lesson, you want to sense into the symbolism associated with the king of gods.
Eagles fly at high altitudes and they never surrender to the size or strength of their prey.
The lightning bolt is a weapon to strike the disrespectful who are without reverence for the vision of the sky-god.
Jupiter Star Examples
Jupitarian fictional example: The film “The Man in the Iron Mask” stars Leonardo DiCaprio in dual roles – one as the hidden twin brother as the man in the iron mask (Phillipe) and the other as a villain-King (Louis). The film centers around four aging musketeers during the reign of King Louis XIV. Witty scenes cleverly switch the two twins (with opposing visions) at various times. Near the end, the musketeers “stand for one and all for one” to take down the villain-King so that the man in the mask (twin brother Phillip) would stand in as the ‘good’ King. Ultimately the musketeers are named as the good-King’s (Phillip’s) royal counsel as he becomes one of France’s greatest kings.
Jupitarian real life example: Melinda Gates was recently interviewed on Super Soul Sunday with Oprah because of her magnanimous fundraising efforts to help women receive education on contraception. She raised something like 2.6 billion dollars for contraception awareness. Stated on her web site is, “Access to family planning information and contraceptives can change lives. Every woman and girl deserves the chance to determine her own future.” The goal of the organization is to bring access to high-quality contraceptive information, services, and supplies to an additional 120 million women and girls in the poorest countries by 2020.
On the interview Gates explained how men in power continue to influence what happens to women’s bodies. While men are the primary source controlling funds this extraordinary philanthropist (Melinda Gates) must find a way to get men to think from the position of women. To do this she asks the men, “What future do you see for your children, and specifically your daughters?” Melinda implied this question as a successful route to help men identify with girls and women in ways they never would otherwise. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is the world’s largest private charitable organization.
I would guess Malinda’s Gate’s life purpose includes Leadership, Influence and Power. She may very well have a Star of Jupiter, as well.
Six (or more) pointed star, like an asterisk, located on the Jupiter mount under the index finger.
What I’d say during a mini hand reading:
You are an ambitious woman gifted with the ability inspire and influence. You have the forte to galvanize change in the world. You may sense an invisible and constant ‘push’ on your back to keep moving forward toward a goal. Ideally the outcomes benefit the entire realm. At your best you are benevolent, allow the chain of command to operate and handle confrontation with grace and ease.
The negative possibility with the star on the Jupiter mount is taking the back seat to another leader, manager or King/Queen and act as the lady behindthe throne. However, while in position behind the throne, the followers will still most likely see you as the one to follow.
The Jupiter Star indicates the twinkling effects of gaining experience by claiming your authority, pointing the way for others with your vision, reigning over your own King/Queendom.
Jupiter Star key words
High achieving, vision, strategic thinking, inspiration, overwhelm, helplessness, frustration
The shape of the Mercury Line, the Line of Intuition, 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.
Understanding the meaning of life through crisis of meaning
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, also known as the Line of Intuition, 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.
However, 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.”
Interpreting the symbols of the soul
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.
Myss 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. Caroline’s 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 Intuition 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. This is 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 expected. Recognize and bring the oppositions together as perfect ingredients for fuller expression of highly attuned perceiving.
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.

Your fingerprints contain the secret code for living on purpose.
Knowing your life’s purpose is one thing. Living on purpose is another.
Q: How do you feel when you’re living on purpose?
A: Peaceful, at ease, in the flow, in your zone.
Q: How do you know when you’re off track?
A: Life is confusing, a constant struggle, as if you’re riding a bicycle in a river against the current.
In Oprah Winfrey’s new book The Path Made Clear: Discovering Your Life’s Direction and Purpose she says, “I believe every one of us is born with a purpose. No matter who you are, what you do, or how far you think you have to go, you have been tapped by a force greater than yourself to step into your God-given calling. This goes far beyond what you do to earn your living. I’m talking about a supreme moment of destiny, the reason you are here on earth.”
I would love for Oprah to know that each person’s life purpose and life lesson is precisely encoded into the unique fingerprint patterns. I’m in full agreement with her further statement: “Committing to a life of purpose takes courage.”
When you feel like you’ve lost your way, and meaning has escaped your path, take these tips to return to your purpose:
Take a breath
Make an honest inventory of your grievances, control issues, criticisms and what you’re resisting.
Get into the sandbox with your life’s lessons. The lessons I’m talking about are the repeating patterns of obstacles that prevent a positive attitude that all things in life are in support of your purpose. Being in the sandbox with your lessons creates a sense of play. A playful approach can strengthen skills to handle your lessons.
Life lesson example
Let’s say your life lesson, according to your fingerprints, is not trusting in yourself and therefore not speaking up when it matters most.
You’re here to learn to listen deeply for your truth, to speak up, be heard and to appropriately surrender to your life’s natural flow. The challenge is not to surrender yourself too much or too little…but just right.
(In this example) As you courageously speak up for yourself in the name of your inner truth (not your opinion or stance to be ‘right’ or better) and you surrender appropriately, you develop skills in trust – trusting in yourself – that what you have to say is important and meaningful. You’re learning to trust in your voice regardless of the potential acceptance or rejection that may result.
This creates space for authentic intimacy with others because you are being true to you. Imagine that!
Now, your life’s purpose will certainly bloom with the advanced skills you bravely heightened through your life lessons.
Hand Analyst Chris Kidder pointed me to an article in Science Daily where a recent study indicates people with strong life purpose may take less effort when making healthier choices.
This research showed that people with a stronger sense of life purpose are more likely to respond positively to health messages and experience less activity in brain regions associated with conflict. Read article…
The ultimate aim in finding purpose is freedom – mental, emotional, physical and spiritual freedom. However, on that path to freedom is a specific life purpose designed for you and it’s all in your hands and fingerprints.

Please join me in this interview with Jo Hayden who received her AAHA Hand Analysis Certification in September 2017. Jo resides in Brisbane, Australia
Q: When, where and with who did you start your hand analysis training?
A: Jena Griffiths and Patti Barton in July 2015.
Q: When did you actually start reading hands?
A: I have been reading hands and studying them since 1991, Professionally since 2015.
Q: About how many hands do you read in a month?
A: Mini readings 20 – 30; full readings approx. 6-10.
Q: How do your 25-minute readings turn into full readings?
A: If I come across someone that has a full hand of markings and has a real desire to go deeper into their hands, I tell them about the longer reading and that they can get a copy of their hand prints with a full recorded session.
Q: What mental mindsets have been most helpful to you to increase the number of readings you are doing?
A: Passion and enthusiasm.
Q: Do you do group readings?
A: I have done home parties with a maximum of 7 readings in a day at a person’s home. I would charge $90 to $111 each. They received hand prints also.
Q: How does someone hear that you do group readings?
A: Word of mouth at Fairs and Markets.
Q: Do you mind me asking what is your current fee for a reading?
A: My current fee is $111 for 1 hour and $40 for 25 minutes at Fairs.
Q: How did you go about increasing your fee over time? How did you know when it was time to increase your fee?
A: After I became a fully-fledged Hand Analyst, I was more able to put my price up. I really like 111 as it is an angel number and people resonate with it. I know I could put it up and have been thinking of doing this after the financial year to $125 as this number adds up to 8 and this is my personal number and my birth-name number.
Let’s get up close and personal with fingerprints. In this article you’ll glimpse into what they can tell you about living your very best life and how you can benefit by knowing more about them.
What Fingerprints Can Tell You
Many people spend their entire lives trying to figure out what their purpose is. The life purpose lies deep within each person waiting to be discovered, exposed, lived and mastered. The Soul’s expression pours through one’s life purpose. This ‘expression’ can be awakened by deciphering the fingerprint patterns and translating the message to the owner of those fingerprints.
Richard Unger and Vernon Mahabal have influenced what we teach and use in our practice as a non-predictive scientific hand analysts. Following are key words related to various life purpose options decoded from a person’s fingerprints:
Behind every human being there is a force to live. Everyone has a desire for self-fulfillment. Describing to someone their life purpose puts them squarely on the path to become everything he or she is capable of becoming. When one is living as they were truly meant to live, fully and completely, liberation abounds.
Undeniably, FREEDOM is the life experience when one owns their life purpose-power.
This is a growth process. The growth catalyst IS clearly encoded in the fingerprint patterns.
The Journey Into Hand Analysis
Hand analysis practitioners become trail guides for self-discovery, self-actualization, freedom and life-fulfillment. Can you imagine how rewarding that could be- to be either the giver or the receiver of such insight?
Each of us has an inner acorn, capable of becoming an exquisite royal oak. Do you want to help individuals inner-acorn’s sprout and reach full aliveness?
If so, check out AAHA Associate Faculty Teacher Linda Salazar’s upcoming Life Purpose Foundations Intensive starting in September. You’ll learn the essentials of reading fingerprints, lines, shapes, color and consistency of the hands to help people get a broad view into their true nature.
Linda says, “We all want to feel like we belong. We want to feel seen. We want to feel understood. And yet, for many, that’s not how it feels at all. The information in this hand analysis training enables us to dive below the surface where the lifeline of connection exists.”
Many students rave about their own new found personal-awareness as a result of completing hand analysis training classes.
“And the day came when the risk (it took) to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”
It’s quite exciting for a hand reader to find a Whorl pattern in the palm of the hand. To find a Whorl in both palms of a person’s hands is doubly sensational.
In nature, the Whorl (above) is not ordinarily found. Although you’ve probably seen them on the digits (fingers and thumbs) of the hand. The concentric circles, creating the whorl symbol, can also be found on the surface of a tree trunk after it’s been cut down.
Finding a Whorl in the Mars Mount of the hand is a big deal and must be elevated to great importance in the reading. Advanced Martian living becomes the life purpose, where the owner will feel most fulfilled and satisfied in his or her life.
These two hands (above) came across my desk this week and both, belonging to the same owner, have Whorls on the Mount of Mars (inside pink colored circles). Some professional readers may call these glyphs Peacocks and I wouldn’t argue. Either way, the implication needs to be elevated to Life Purpose position.
Mars (Roman)/Ares (Greek) is known as the God of War.
Ares as the embodiment of aggression, has been one of the strongest forces working through human history. He is Olympos’ “Action Man,” the god of war and strife, the restless and turbulent lover, thriving on conflict and rejoicing in the delight of battle. In Ares we see our own aggression raw and bloody, before civilization tempered or repressed it. – Arianna Stassinopoulos, The Gods of Greece
“Of the twelve Olympians, The Greeks places Ares in the least respected position because of his irrationality and battle frenzy. He represented the uncontrollable lust for battle and bloodshed. In contrast, as Mars, the Romans held him in high regard, second only to Jupiter (Roman)/Zeus (Greek) in importance.” – Jean Shinoda Bolan, Gods in Every Man
The story and imagery portrayed in mythology is fascinating. The archetypal associations in our lives is quite relevant when more deeply investigating and understanding our motivations, values and preferences.
When describing what the Whorl in the Mars zone of the hand means to the owner, the hand reader will be spot on when dialoging about the Mars/Ares archetypal patterns of engagement.
When discussing a strong Mars Mount, Star or Whorl in this area I refer to Diana/Wonder Woman with women, Clark Kent/Superman to men and the Incredible Hulk to children and teens. Each represent Hero’s and Protectors. Brutus (as in Popeye), as Brawler, is an alternative side of Mars that will most likely be part of the owners learning journey at some point or another.
Ares and Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, were notable lovers. Both love and war come together in this union. Great passion is portrayed in love and war so unleashed passion is not surprising for the Action Wo/Man. Having an appropriate outlet for this eminent level of vitality is important for the health and well-being of this archetype.
Standing up for the underdog brings fulfillment to the owner with a well-marked Mars zone, which includes a Whorl here. The Warrior needs a cause, something to stand for, to protect. The Whorl indicates a life purpose where his or her exceptional courage and bravery must be exercised.
Martians do best when using their fierce nature, defending those who are unable to stand up for themselves – such as mistreated animals, foster children, veterans 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 weak and cowardly, or the opposite – impulsively violent.
Just like the Lion in “Wizard of Oz,” owners of a Mars Whorl must have a bold and fearless course of action to devote their enthusiasm toward. The aim is to evolve from Ares into Mars, the battle-lusting Greek God of War into the protector of the community, successfully navigating conflict as the Roman Mars.
Look for the Mars archetype in the following vocations: Commander in Chief, Athletic coach, building demolition, construction, conflict resolution, advocacy.

Below are conversations had on Facebook about the above article after being posted:
Jennifer Hirschsuch a precious find, magnificent! I wonder about the contradiction of the less assertive traits shown in the short low set water finger of the left hand…. fascinating!
American Academy of Hand AnalysisGood eye Jennifer. With the low set and short Jupiter, he might go either way – less assertive and lacking confidence and/or pushy, getting angry when feeling disrespected.
Brent Bruning“The Greeks places Ares in the least respected position because of his irrationality and battle frenzy. He represented the uncontrollable lust for battle and bloodshed. In contrast, as Mars, the Romans held him in high regard, second only to Jupiter (Roman)/Zeus (Greek) in importance” — brilliant, love it. And they are overwhelmingly attracted to being the hero for underdogs no question. I found this in the horror film director Michael Steiner who wrote the film Grounding in defense of the people who lost their job, as well as a great horror film Sennentuschi. My brother has one as well – who built an international company rescuing reclaimed tai-furniture (wagon wheels) and making it as furniture. Mars has a conflict side for sure and all of them are attracted to hot irons. But they also have a playful side, the need for liberation and exalt and defend the childlike freedom and kids’s rights to explore boundaries and go through initiations. Great article. My brother below. No conflict there hahaha.
Brent BruningHe has been a lifelong case study. Fought in high school, had the Mustang car at 14, very popular with girls and guys looked up to him, worked his way through college, fought during his graduation, left the corporation after 2 years to travel the world, surf, bartend and live in a shipping container on a beach in hawaii, start his own company, tear it all down, craft furniture, work with kids at camp, work with kids at university… everything mars.
The following article is intended to give you insight into the cornerstone of my upcoming EFT, Mythology and Mantras 6-Session workshop. Session #2 will focus on money because you’re worth it.
Have you considered how your beliefs and mental constructs unconsciously direct your stories, decisions and actions around money?
Phrases I’ve heard people say are…
“I hate money.”
“I always seem to just have enough to get by.”
“As quickly as it comes in, it goes out.”
“All that I need will show up – some way, somehow.”
“Money is my friend.”
These money lines range from negative to positive. Can you imagine how the [repeating] story affects the money outcome in a person’s life with each of the above phrases?
What story or phrase do you most say about money? What do you teach others through your words (thoughts and beliefs) about money?
What is the source of your money story? Did you hear aunt Matilda or uncle Fred make a statement about money that you find yourself repeating now?
Only when we get real about our thoughts and beliefs around money can we create new, empowering and lasting money choices.
In mythology Saturn is related to harvest and time. Trees, such as oranges, grow over time, in a designated season, with calculated attention to the system for planting, watering, trimming, warming, picking and taking to market. Therefore, key words for Saturn are: Value, responsibility, time and money.
Think about it. You exchange your money for things you value. You work, per agreements and contracts with bosses or clients, to generate revenue.
In this case, learning about Saturn, will help you understand more about the premise of money issues so that you can decide if you want to do anything differently.
Following are three highly effective ways I use Emotional Freedom Techniques, and you can too.
Getting clarity on a root-cause-thought must be revealed into the conscious mind otherwise it will lurk in the energy system of your body-field. Hence the unwanted story will never change. Help from a coach or EFT practitioner is needed to help guide someone to the core cause of money stories.
Creating a new empowering statement is used to replace the old way of thinking with the new desired way of thinking.
Tapping into the Wise Guide Inside to help you see the issue with fresh perspective is also highly effective in finding freedom around the loved or loathed topic of money.
Once the story line is identified, the source of it revealed, EFT statements are created and used during tapping, then we can design one or two powerful mantras. When a mantra is created with Spirit it becomes sacred.
While the mantra created with participants are personalized here is an example of one:
Through diligence, my money wisdom increases with time, contemplation, patience and structure.
In conclusion, the above gives a solid framework for examining the combination of EFT, mythology, mantras and money.
