Your Ultimate Life Mapping Requires a Revolution of Purpose

Pretend a new destination you want to travel is Sequoia National Park, California. To get to your primary points of interest you’ll use 4 different map views: Area, General, Driving and Detail.

  1. The Area map is the highest-level view showing the destination relative to the cities in the state of California.
  2. The map of the General area shows Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, the neighboring National Forests and the names of the peaks and mountain ranges.
  3. The Driving map gives a more detailed map of the roads, campgrounds, vista points, caves and curves in the road.
  4. The Detailed map shows trails for walking, hiking and horseback riding.

All of these maps are provided to assure you reach your desired destination. People travel from all around the world to visit the giant trees in Sequoia National Park. I know because I live 6 miles from the gateway into the park.

Imagine traveling somewhere you’ve always wanted to go, where you’ve never been before, but without having a map!

How long would it take to arrive? You could stop and ask people for directions, but you know how country roads work; turn left after the big oak tree, drive for 3 miles then take another left at the big red rock…

Natural areas pose hazards. Roads become very narrow. They are winding and cut into very steep mountainsides. Over using automobile breaks instead of shifting into low gear can end very badly. Roads are subject to closure. Chains are required in winter. Be sure to gas up before entering the park because there are no gas stations. And most importantly don’t leave food or ice chests in the car otherwise curious and hungry bears will tear off the door of your car to have a tasty snack.

Similarly, the lines in your hands offer assorted types of maps to pinpoint obstacles, cautionary signs as well as the best route to your most fulfilling destination, per se.

In truth, this ride isn’t about getting to a static point but to experience your ‘right life’ – consciously. Right life is living in your most natural state, like the sun rising and falling, without effort. When I say consciously I mean where you are being present and aware of yourself in now-time.

In this being-ness resides pure joy.

However, there is an aspect in all of us that resists change. Our reptilian brain likes the status quo. It fears anything new. To grow into our highest potential we must act courageously and take new roads into the unknown.

Transformation happens when we let go and surrender to our natural path – like the caterpillar changing into a butterfly.

Transformation offers the essence of the creature to be empowered in its own right.

I’ve designed a fabulous 6-hour LIVE webinar course for hand readers called Revolution of Purpose. A revolution is necessary now because, more than ever before, it is time to plunge into unknown territories where competing distractions keep us stuck, confused and playing small.

Now is the time to stand up to the fear behind our unconscious habit patterns and withdraw all power given to that fear.

In revolution we rise up.

In revolution we become dogged, earnest and one-pointed toward the purpose, which in this case is our natural state. It’s time for you to stand up on behalf of your client and hold him or her as powerful in his or her highest potential.

We are here wandering through many life-classrooms to develop skills to return to our true Self; to remember the Source of our Being. The human hand and the fingerprints carry the code to expedite that homecoming. But willingness, courage, understanding and earnestness are required on behalf of the traveler.

This is where you, Mr. or Ms. Hand Reader come in. Whether you’ve trained for two months, two years or two decades, you have an almost unimaginable significance to contribute to the whole. 

In Revolution of Purpose you’ll revisit your reason for being, re-activate your potential and regain momentum for living on purpose – fully and completely. You’ll also explore advanced language encoded into the fingerprint patterns and give every single one of your clients pinpointing and concrete direction to formulate a high level life map. Learn how to direct them more precisely as they decide to look at the detailed maps and observe the cautionary signs. Staying on the road is key.

The purpose of life is to live.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981) said, “Living is Life’s only purpose.”

“There is no question of failure, neither in the short run nor in the long. It is like traveling a long and arduous road in an unknown country. Of all the innumerable steps there is only the last, which brings you to your destination. Yet you will not consider all previous steps as failures. Each brought you nearer to your goal, even when you had to turn back to by-pass an obstacle. In reality each step brings you to your goal, because to be always on the move, learning, discovering, unfolding, is your eternal destiny.”

We are remembering into the undivided, unified WHOLE of Awareness. On this journey opposition is required. How can light be understood without knowing darkness? How can peace know itself without not-peace (chaos)?

Use contrast to live in joy.

Abraham says the purpose of life is to live in joy, being thrilled with our involvement in the expansion of consciousness. She wants us to ‘chew on contrast’ to use what we don’t want as a vibrational rocket of desire toward that which we do want. You might like to listen to this 13-minute recording by Abraham where a member of the audience asks, “What is the ultimate purpose.” The dialog is stimulating and builds a solid case for living with purpose.

Fingerprints reflect a vibrational imprint and when correctly interpreted provide a direct path to ultimate living.

Richard Unger, author of LifePrints said the Navajo Indians have a saying about fingerprints: “The Great Spirit breathes in the breath of life, and the tracks of that breath become our fingerprints.”

A particular paradox is encoded in each person’s unique set of fingerprints which depicts upside and downside possibilities. Each side must be revealed and experienced so that the opposites can be transcended and unity understood.

The relative universe (life) provides the grounds for Absolute Truth, the undivided, unified WHOLE of Existence.

In other words, your manifested form allows the Infinite/Source to know and experience Itself and it’s inherent qualities such as unconditional love, infinite creative ability and pure joy.

So let’s expedite our muddling through the muck and help our clients do the same. You are the translator of a life mapping system coded into the uniquely designed fingerprints. You are a mighty messenger for aliveness.

“A map does not just chart, it unlocks and formulates meaning; it forms bridges between here and there, between disparate ideas that we did not know were previously connected.” -Reif Larsen

Self-Reliant Head Line

Do you have the Self-Reliant Head Line? If the start of the Head Line is separated from the beginning of the Life Line, the owner’s thought system will be independent of his or her family of origin, acting autonomously.

If you have this marking of self-reliance, you prefer to figure things out on your own. For example, if you must decide whether to get married or divorced, go to college or quit college, start a job or change vocations, you rely on the resources of your own choosing, which may not include family input.

The handprint above belongs to one of the children in Project Snowflake. I initiated a formal project in early 2010 to observe the changes in the handprints of twelve children starting at ages between five days to eight years old. At the time of this printing she was fifteen years of age. As a youngster, her mental system did not match those of her parents as closely as one might think, even though they lived in a loving and supportive country home environment. She showed signs of operating on her own terms as early as age three. I first printed her hands when she was eight years old; she is now twenty-one. All of her handprints, spanning thirteen years, clearly show her tendency toward independence, freedom, and autonomy. She did her own thing on the soccer field in the sixth grade, not paying much attention to the position to which she had been assigned. At age fourteen, she snuck out of her bedroom in the middle of the night to meet her friends in the schoolyard. At eighteen, she has moved out of her home to work and attend college.

Keep in mind, no one marking tells a complete picture about someone’s character. Blending other eye-catching designs in the hands points to the theme of the owner’s life-story. As an example, combine this self-reliant Head Line with a Hermit Heart Line and the owner’s requirements for freedom and autonomy increase twofold. The Hermit Heart Line indicates necessity for sanctuary time, loyalty and productivity. The handprint above has a Hermit Heart Line, too.

Self-Reliant Positive: I have a large capacity to get the job done, especially when unsupervised.

Self-Reliant Negative: I don’t see the need for help very often, and this can make it challenging to team up with others toward a common goal.

Mantra: I relish in my independent mind, but I am open to receiving support from the team once in a while.

Five Additional Variables for Vocational Hand Analysis – Part III

Five additional variables to look for in the hands when doing a vocational analysis are:

1. The Finger Zones are essential features because the size, length, width and girth give a striking clue as to additional emphasis regarding the owner’s ideal niche. Typically, one of the 12 finger zones, or sections, is most eye-catching. The most noticeable finger section directs me to inquire with the owner about his or her skill or desire in the related area. Below are high-level descriptions related to each of the finger zones.

Index/Jupiter Middle/Saturn Ring/Apollo Pinkie/Mercury
Upper Zone Visionary Wisdom Studies Mental arts Brainstorming
Middle Zone Ambition Security Design Negotiations
Lower Zone Territory Foundations Display Sex energy

As you know, desires are not always pursued for a variety of reasons. And skills are not always developed. However, the most-visible zone must be considered if the owner wishes to find fulfillment.

2.  Thumbs are one of the most important considerations when determining if working for others or the self would be favorable. As an example, Oprah’s thumbs span widely from her palm. This large area between her hand and the tip of her thumb shows desire for a wide range of influence. The wider the angle between hand and thumb tip, the bigger the territory the owner must have to manage. Likewise, the closer the thumb rests to the hand, the less responsibilities he or she wishes to administer. He or she would do better, and most likely prefer, to be employed for someone else, leaving work at the same time each day.

3.  The length and quality of the Fate Line (vertical line climbing from the bottom of the hand up toward the middle finger) reveals drive toward values, which in turn equate to money. A long, noticeable vertical line rising toward the middle finger shows a person with their foot on the gas and hands on the steering wheel with a clear plan, direction and determination.

4.  The Life Line shows the level of vitality available to the owner. Deep, long and curving Life Lines indicate stamina, recuperation skills and physical balance. Life Lines that are short or frayed show a scattering of energy; the anchor typically keeping a buoyant ship in place is untethered.

5.  A variety of other markings in the hands would also be considered. There are too many to mention here.

Keep in mind, no one indicator in the hand will uncover the vocational solution. The ingredients must be artistically combined to expose the inner masterpiece waiting to shine.

To summarize, the first component in the hand to assess for vocational selection is the hand. So far we considered the following variables (shape, lines and markings):

– Hand Shape archetype

– Dominant finger

– Strongest Mount

– Heart Lines

– Gift Markings

– Finger Zones

– Thumbs

– Fate Lines

– Life Lines

– Other Markings

How to Find Your Right Vocation Part II

When we live on our natural path effort is unnecessary. Think of a river as it naturally flows over rocks and around bends. The river is not working- yet there is a tremendous force of nature at work – carving deep canyons into mountains.

This is my objective – to help you find your powerful flow so you can be free of effort – and it’s literally designed in the palms of your hands.

When properly understood and interpreted, the hands clearly identify the potential skills, attributes, talents, strengths and preferences of an individual, as well as the potential weaknesses and blocks to overcome. A skillful hand reading and coaching with a professional can greatly change the direction and perception for possible career options. While your hand reader will offer insightful guidance, it is entirely up to you to choose what is best and right for you. The concrete and unique information in the hands can remove the guess-work as to what is the best vocation. One’s natural path for “right” work is literally etched in the palms and fingerprints. Your hand reader is the translator of that information to you, as the client.

Key components:

1) The hand (shape, lines and specific markings)

2) The fingerprints (life path, purpose and lesson)

As a scientific hand analyst I use the following checklist to begin my vocational assessment using the first component – the hand. I focus on the right hand first because it is typically considered the dominant hand.

–   Hand Shape archetypal combinations reveal temperament and preferences. One is motivated toward what is important to him or her. As an example, productivity and reliability is important to the Earth handed person while impressions and relationships are important to the water handed person.

–  Dominant fingers act as antennas transmitting and receiving potencies and areas of interest. For example, a person with a straight, tall and upright middle (Saturn) finger will place value in organization, structure, discipline and responsibility.

Now, if you blend an Earth hand with a dominant middle finger the owner will feel best in work with organizational structures providing productive and reliable outcomes – as in road construction. Rules and simplicity will be important. Conversely, the Water hand blended with a dominant middle finger will find the owner attracted to discipline and order in relationships. You may find him or her rehearsing lines for an upcoming stage performance, molding to the impression of the character he or she will play. 

–  The fullest Mount on the palm will show an excess reservoir of energy for use. For example, if the fullest Mount is around the ball of the Thumb (Venus zone), then the owner will be inclined to socialize, play and indulge in luxury.

–  The Heart Line provides clues as to the non-negotiable emotional requirements of the owner. A long curving up to the index finger Heart Line type will want to connect with people. Conversely, a short, straight Heart Line would rather work alone and complete projects and tasks.

–  Gift Markings pinpoint unique signatures to embody and shine into the world. Associated obstacles accompany each gift marking to help point the way to it’s advanced path.

The above are a few considerations your vocational hand analysis session will include to build a theme for your life’s most fulfilling work.

Part 3 will include five additional variables to consider in the hand when selecting a vocation.

Interview with Caroline Douglas

Caroline Douglas
Caroline Douglas, AAHA CHA

With great pleasure, I introduce you to Artist and Hand Analyst, Caroline Douglas.

When and how did you start reading hands?

After I had mine read by Baeth Davis in 2008, I thought what a profound healing tool. So I began studying it and taking classes, eventually being Certified with you Kay.

Are you specializing in any particular area of hand analysis? If so, what is it?

I am not focusing on any one thing, but I do seem to attract really creative people. I also see a lot of gift markings…. maybe since I have so many too :o)

What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?

I love how validating it is for people, how they often feel seen for the first time in a real way. Also, it is a great way for me to use my gifts of insight and healing and it is a great connector in a profound way.

Has your life lesson ever shown up during a reading?  If so, how and what did you learn from that experience?

Well yes, my life lessons… I have several, but the one that trumps them all is left Saturn- guilt and unworthiness. So especially in the beginning of reading hands, I would doubt myself and what I was seeing. But after expressing what I saw, it got easier and I had more certainty when people were so touched by it.

How do you apply your life purpose and your life lesson, in other words, how do you see them work together?

Good question! My life purpose of Public Impact in the Healing Arts is always pushing me to be sharing my story of how I healed myself after a head injury through art and to be creative in the spotlight. My lessons are incompletion, powerlessness and unworthiness. They contribute to me holding back and preferring to hide through self-doubt. Two books come to mind… Art and Fear (which describes in detail all the resistances we can come up with to avoid creating) and Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway, which is the story of my life!

Do you have a bad experience you can share to help others avoid a similar situation?

I did a couple reading where one had a Simian. I fell into confusion while trying to validate both people. I felt frustrated that the reading was not more help for them. Basically I couldn’t heal their relationship. It was only later that I realized that I was doing the best I could and that I need to be clear about boundaries and setting an intention.  I did another couple’s reading right after that so I could get over that fear. And that one was great! And who’s to say the first one was not great, too, just that it stirred things up. Sometimes that is what is needed for healing to happen.

What advice would you give to new students of Hand Analysis?

Trust yourself and practice a lot! It will be very healing for you, too.

What intentions do you have for your Hand Analysis practice during the next six months?

I want to get caught up with all the readings I need to do!

Bully Buster

Do you have the markings of a bully buster? Look at the Inner Mars zone in the palms of your hands.  One of many key words for this zone is stamina.

Mars Zone

 

When looking at your Mars zone, either hand, do you see any of the following markings:

– Fullness/puffiness
– Star (6 pointed asterisk)
– Whorl
– The start of your Head Line
– Grills

Mars Star

 Head Line starts inside and below the start of the Life Line (above)

Grill in Mars

Grill/ladder effect in the Mars zone (above)

Standing up for the underdog brings fulfillment to the owner with a well marked Mars zone. Mars is the archetype for the warrior and he (or she) needs a cause, something to stand for, to protect. A star shows the gift of bravery. The whorl indicates a life purpose where his or her exceptional courage is exercised. With the Head Line starting inside the Life Line, the owner will do well to advocate for those who are unable to stand up for themselves – such as mistreated animals, foster children, 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 cowardly, or the opposite – rageful. Just like the Lion in “Wizard of Oz,” owners of one or more of the markings above must have a bold and fearless course of action to devote their enthusiasm toward.

What Makes an Exceptional Teacher?

What Makes an Exceptional Teacher?

When looking for a teacher in the professional healing arts, and specifically hand analysis, there are many aspects to take into consideration.  High quality teachers have an extensive knowledge of the subject matter, curriculum and standards, a caring attitude, and a love of learning; experience facilitating groups of individuals and expectations, a desire to make a difference in the lives of students, and those lives who the student will touch.

– Exceptional teachers set high expectations for all students while meeting each student where she is emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.

– Exceptional teachers have clear, written-out objectives for each class and/or program. With integrity, they follow through with commitments. Students do better when they have a clear idea what to expect and receive what is expected.

– Exceptional teachers are prepared and organized. They are in their classrooms (and tele-calls) early and ready to teach. They offer homework assignments and hands-on practice plans to build subject knowledge.

– Exceptional teachers help students see differently. Effective teachers use intuition, scientific facts (reliable and repeatable data) while also asking “why” questions. Students learn better when they are challenged to look at all sides of the subject matter and are given plenty of time to ask and answer questions.

– Exceptional teachers communicate effectively, engage all students and treat each student with dignity and respect.

– Exceptional teachers form strong heart-centered relationships with their students and show that they care. They are warm, enthusiastic, considerate and caring. Students feel supported when their teachers are available to them during and outside of scheduled class time.

– Exceptional teachers are masters of their subject and spend time continuing to gain knowledge in their field of expertise. They present the material with enthusiasm and instill hunger in their students to study and practice.

– Exceptional teachers help students build confidence through praise, appropriate correction, and individualized guidance.

– Exceptional teachers pursue and exhibit life experience to support their curriculum and overall teaching objectives.

– Exceptional teachers give the student cause to be both fulfilled and delighted about the learning institution or academy where they are or have been taught.

– Exceptional teachers gratefully acknowledge their sources of content and pay homage to their revered teachers and mentors.
