By profession, Linda is a Relationship Coach and Scientific Hand Analyst. She graduated from the AAHA Year Long Certification program and completed the Level 1 & 2 Teacher Training Program in 2012.
When and how did you start reading hands?
I started reading hands two years ago. It all came about immediately after I had a Hand Analysis done during a time in my life when I was feeling quite confused both personally and professionally. Not having a clue what Hand Analysis really entailed I was floored by the depth of which the reader understood me – all of me. That’s all it took for me to know I had to learn this art and I recognized the impact it would have in my coaching practice as well as my personal life.
Are you specializing in any particular area of hand analysis? If so, what is it?
I am specializing in the heart line. Being a relationship coach and having just this one piece of information has allowed me to work with my clients in a whole new way. And bringing in other components of the hands and correlating this information to a client’s emotional style has helped them have beautiful relational transformations not just with the people in their life but with themselves, as well.
What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?
There’s so many things, actually.
– Seeing clients understand and accept themselves like they’ve never done before.
– For their life to suddenly make sense to them, even from just one piece of information in the hands being shared with them.
– Having them feel witnessed and valued is so beautiful!
And, I love how quickly I can get to the Soul of another human being. Being able to experience someone’s authentic self – vulnerabilities and strengths – brings me tremendous joy. I truly believe when we can show our vulnerabilities along with our strengths and honor, love, and support each other from that place, we break down the barriers that keep us separated and the world becomes a better place.
Has your life lesson ever shown up during a reading? If so, how and what did you learn from that experience?
Ha! When hasn’t it showed up! Actually, it might be more accurate to ask me if it’s ever shown up before or during a reading because more times than not my left Saturn (self-worth/guilt) can grab me just before a reading. Although I have a couple of other lessons this one is the leader of the pack when it’s rude enough to show itself.
During a reading, if a client isn’t relating to something I’m sharing, there can be a moment of, “That’s it! I can’t do this. I’m finished! Time to go mow lawns for a living!” Then I’ll take a deep breath and think, “There she goes again!” (my lesson) and just continue on with the reading remembering it’s not always easy for a client to recognize something in him/herself the first time it’s being revealed. When someone has the same lesson as me, I’ve learned to share myself around the lesson and it helps both of us tremendously.
How do you apply your life purpose and your life lesson, in other words, how do you see them work together?
They go like hand in glove. When I’m in my observing mode it’s like watching a dance between the two of them because they really do feed off of each other. Every time, and I mean every time, I’m stepping more fully into my life purpose, my lesson will come roaring through having me doubt myself, which in turn, can have me crawl back into my hole where my comfortable, oversized stuffed chair is patiently waiting for me to have a seat and hang out. Until, that is, my purpose whispers in my ear again and reminds me about my bigger why for being here. It’s then that I’ll become uncomfortable being in the chair allowing me to crawl out of my hole feeling more confident and ready to go.
I’ve come to understand that every time my lesson shows up I’m onto something that’s giving me an opportunity to grow and honor the reason my Soul chose to come into this lifetime. Therefore, my lesson is also my ally.
What are your fingerprint patterns?
Do you have a bad experience you can share to help others avoid a similar situation?
I don’t know if I consider this a bad experience as much as it was a frustrating one. I did a reading for a gentleman who just wasn’t able to grasp most of what I was sharing with him. His questions were indicating to me that he really wasn’t listening or able to hear the information. He told me I was wrong about his life purpose and his lessons. There was no doubt what they were because his fingerprints were extremely clear making them very easy to read. It got to a point when I finally asked him how I could serve him best since there was nothing that seemed to be working for him up to that point. He asked me if his hands showed me how he can break through his struggle with making friends because at 52 years old he was quite lonely in his life. And that’s the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
What advice would you give to new students of Hand Analysis?
Go easy on yourself! There’s an enormous amount of information to take in and integrate. There will be moments of feeling overwhelmed – like you’re never going to get this system to the degree that you can give an impactful reading. The truth is, you can and you will. Even telling someone one thing about his or her life that he or she was confused about or not aware of, but makes sense to the person can have a huge impact.
To truly master this Hand Analysis system, look at hands – in person and printed. Practice on friends and family and each time you learn something new look at their hands again and again to see what you can see that you weren’t able to see before.
Be willing to keep delving into what your hands reveal about you as it allows you to grow on all levels and will give you the ability to be a more compassionate and powerful hand analyst.
What intentions do you have for your Hand Analysis practice during the next six months?
To build it more rapidly through public speaking. I want to expose as many people as possible to their heart line/emotional style helping them live from their heart’s authentic expression in all their relationships, especially the one with themselves.
