Deciphering your own fingerprint patterns – the Whorl
Part 2 of 5
by Kay Packard

Whorls comprise about 30-35% of fingerprint patterns found on the human finger tips and thumbs.  The whorl looks like a set of rings seen on a tree stump or the lapping ringlets after dropping a pebble into a body of water.  However, whorl fingerprint pattern must have a core and two tri-radii on the outside lower edges of the circular pattern. 

Whorl Fingerprint

Look at your own fingerprint patterns and see if you have any whorls.  If you see whorls, count how many inhabit your finger tips. Not everyone has whorls. There are other fingerprint patterns that I’ll be describing in upcoming newsletters so don’t worry if you don’t have any whorls (or loops as discussed in my last issue).

According to Richard Unger’s LifePrints, if you have three whorls you may be in the school of “Service”.  If you own four whorls you are definitely in the school of “Service” where you are developing your skills to choose to live in a consciousness of service.  As a Master of Service you are consciously aware of your acts of service and not dependent on the outcome.    Vernon Mahabal, Director of the Palmistry Institute, declares these whorls dwell on the finger tips of Teachers.  Teachers are those who tap into the swirling air of knowledge and convey information to those in need.   Clients identify when I combine Unger and Mahabals’ systems and describe that the whorl owner feels compelled to collect and share information for use in self-less service.  The Emergency Medical Technician studies diligently to capture retain and use information real time to preserve and prolong the human heart-beat.

Life experience requires those on the student path of Service to experience sacrifice; feeling resentful, unappreciated and disrespected along the way.  The student may also swing the pendulum in the opposite direction to excessive self-indulgence, tending to her needs and wants – only.  Toggling between sacrifice and self-indulgence is a pure indicator of successful trail blazing for Service.  How else would one learn how to ‘choose’ Service?

Acquiring the skills of saying “yes” and “no” without guilt, in a true state of service puts one on the Master Path.  The sacred work is to bounce through sacrifice and self indulgence when it’s happening and recalculate the navigation system for freedom-in-service.  When the outcome is NOT the primary focus one is in real service.  The simple act of service triggers ultimate delight.

Whorl wearers will also advance by asking for help.  I’ve found this to be most difficult for service-driven-clients because they can ‘do-it-all’.  They have the information and the know-how.  However, those valuable traits can be the primary ingredients for obligation, bitterness and loss-of-self.  What are the benefits in asking, allowing and receiving help?

The key to happiness in service is ‘choice’ and ‘desire’ to help and guide – not control – that garners a long term sense of satisfaction in the process. 

As described in Part 1 of 5, if seven loops and (from this issue) three whorls are etched into the finger tips one is on the life path of ‘Loving-Service’.  Consciously servicing from the most authentic self feels really, really good.  Getting to that good-feeling state requires appropriate expression of feelings + selfless service how one darn-well-pleases.

Yes, I know it’s a long and winding road at Life University.  Why not get (or rent) a hot-rod and burn rubber baby!
