Farrah ~ age 2

Farrah just turned two in June. Her mom was a big help in this printing and the first time when she was only 7 weeks old (below).

Here she is, below.

She held her hands so still, I could see and record all of her fingerprints. I felt very lucky in her willingness to ‘play’ with me.

Talus and His Monkey Line

Talus and Mom came by share his two-year-and-seven-month hands with me.  He intently performed my requested hand printing, almost without instruction.  He printed his baby doll too!

Talus calls this line racing across his hand (above), “A Monkey Line.”  The monkey does fly from tree to tree with intent and grace.  I also like to think of it like a tight-rope where the walker is very aware of his (or her) every step.  Years of practice assure the walker remains wrapped to the line.

Makena and Mom Paused for a Print

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!

Scattering into Stillness

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.

A Bundle of Bethany

Bethany and her Mom and Dad came by to have Bethany’s hands printed again.  Her first hand printing was in Jan. 2010, 2nd printing in May 2010, 3rd printing in Aug. 2010 and now Oct. 2011.  She is an absolute bundle of Love.  Two Big Heart Lines have developed.  One heart line is recorded as being ‘short’ in an earlier print and reading.  Now that Heart Line has grown up toward the index finger.  She owns 9 Loops on 10 of  her fingerprints.

Dad is curious too!

Lookin' Good!

 Colored ink is more fun for kids!  She picked purple this time.

 

A big thank you to Raymond for taking the photos!

Wyatt Turns Two

Snowflake Wyatt came by to have his hands printed just before his 2nd birthday but he was much more interested in being a kid – as he should!  We were more successful last year because we had three adults wrangling one snowflake.  I’ll know better for next time. 🙂

If it’s OK with Mom, it’s OK with me to play on the counter top with the cooking utensils.

 His hand wrapped tightly around the hair dryer.

At last a print (below) but mostly for fun.

 

Summer Snowflake

These little hands came to visit today. 

 

This Little One’s life purpose is the Successful, Innovative Communicator. When living on purpose, failure is not an option.  She is the inventor with language whether speaking, writing, singing or signing.  She is the Master Communicator, manifesting and creating the precise ingredients for success. She has already received an award for ‘communications’ at school.

Her life challenge is to feel at home regardless of any community or family environmental issues.  By experiencing the feeling of being a “Black Sheep” she’ll learn to find her right tribe where she can feel like she belongs.  This is a journey of trial and error.  At 9 and ¾ years of age she fully understands what it takes to find the right pant size.  She knows about trying on pants that are too big and too small to get to the just right size.  With her life challenge she may roam from tribe to tribe, exploring the people, attitudes and life styles until she feels ‘at home’.  Ideally, she’ll ultimately find her ‘home’ wherever her heart is.   

As she develops being ‘at home’ she may actually turn into a Master Translator for black sheep’s from a Spiritual perspective.  The loop in her Moon Zone gives her the potential to be the Spiritual Counselor where she assists others to understand their deepest self and reach the highest self.
