The Flip Side ~ Featuring the Composite Whorl

The Flip Side ~ Featuring the Composite Whorl

By Kay Packard

Each fingerprint has a ‘micro-life’ of its own.  There is an announcement programmed within the design of each glyph depending on the finger where it resides.  Just like nature, with her assortment of patterns, so too do the fingerprints reflect a precise illustration. That message plays out in the ‘macro-life’ of the owner.

Let’s delve into the Composite Whorl.  There are a variety of types of whorls that can be seen with the naked eye.  If needed, a magnifying glass will help with your inspection.

AAHA Whorl Print Examples

The whorl pattern must have two tri-radii to be considered a whorl. Red arrows, above point to each tri-radii. In the Composite Whorl the core is looping back around itself. The center looks like an “S”.

If you or anyone you know has a Composite Whorl, with an “S” you may likely alternate between two specific aspects related to the print location.

Location Matters – This fancy print can be found on any finger, thumb or impressed into the palm. The “S” Whorl reveals opposites – opposites of what?  See the right and left hand finger descriptions on the hand maps below to better understand the opposites that are burrowed into each fingertip. The description on the top is the consciousness experienced while in the ‘on’ position. The description on the bottom is the interpreted awareness during the ‘off’ position.  The two energies offer an opposing affect. There is vacillation between the two positions.

Now, identify the location for your “S” Whorl.  If you have one, or more, you’ll most likely be seeing movie scenes featuring both sides related to the associated finger it lives on.  These movie clips can feature others’ lives as well as your own. These etchings have been imprinted on the owner since five (5) months prior to birth. The designs of all fingerprints are unalterable.  This blinking effect of the “S” won’t go away or change. What you can change is your reaction toward the experiences you ‘see’.

Life Path Options for the “S” – Junior, Advanced and Master

Junior Path:  You feel stuck in the ‘off’ position. This is the down side, the bad hair day condition. You may even self-sabotage to remain fixed in the ‘off’ situation. Why might you stay stuck? Staying stuck is familiar. Being accustomed to a pattern can keep you locked in to that pattern, regardless if it boosts or busts your sense of well-being. But if you’re reading this, you’re more aware and willing to take the next step.

Advanced Path: You recognize and learn from the ‘off’ position to get to ‘on’.  You see the ‘off’ as a means to build character and develop your souls growth. At the same time, you experiment with your life lesson, more and more. To identify your life lesson, locate the digit(s) where your lowest ranking fingerprints reside.

Master Path: You flip between both sides integrating the two extremes without entertaining an ‘off-balance-reaction’.  You remain evenhanded and perceive life beyond the opposites. There is even a possibility that you find yourself in the ‘on’ position much of the time. When you find yourself on the Master Path, you have most likely confronted and embraced your life lesson. At your best, you have even exalted your life lesson.

For example, I have an “S” on my right thumb (Success and Failure). On a regular basis I experience what I believe as failure and success. It’s a sense (both feeling and thought) of failure and success.  I have let the fear of failure prevent me from achieving the results my deepest Self is calling for me to do and be.  After having my hands analyzed, and playing with the toggle affects, I’ve learned to say “Yes to “S.””  Now, my reactions to potential failure are silenced. When I smell the sense of failure, I literally look in the opposite direction. I visualize success through trial and error. I honor the call for success in the moment and transcend into a deeper aspect of Self.  Will I always be in this enlightened state?  Who knows?  It’s a learning journey and I’m in for the ride!

On the learning path, the S-owner might say “Oh- no, someone save me, I’m in the “off” side (again). That pickle is actually a gift. I’m here to inspire you to say “yes” to “S”!  Take responsibility and embrace the internal squabble.  Use the perception to see your way to awakening to a deeper and more profound facet of your Self.

I’d love to hear back from you if you have an “S” Whorl.  Tell me where you’re at on your path relative to the flip sides of the finger description where it’s located.  If I’ve read your hands and you’d like me to check my files to confirm the possibility of the “S” you might be seeing on your fingertips, PLEASE ask me.  I live for this work and the steps toward self-realization for everyone.

If you’d like a first time or follow-on reading, let’s talk! Hand Analysis has helped thousands of people add incredible insights to their personal tool kits for manifesting their right life. The right life = the best life as determined by each individual.

In the mean time, don’t let the “off” get in the way of your “on” and beyond!

Hand Analysis Can Prove Insightful

Below is an article written by Catherine Doe, reporter with the Valley Voice newspaper serving Tulare and Kings Counties in Central California. It was printed November 21, 2013.

Hand Analysis Can Prove Insightful

by Catherine Doe

We are each a soul living a human experience. Did you ever wonder what your soul’s agenda is? All you have to do is look at your hands. Or have Kay Packard, founder of the American Academy of Hand Analysis, read your hands for you.

When Kay was 38, she woke up one day and asked herself, “Why am I here? Because this can’t be it.” It took five more years of searching, but after some friends encouraged her to get her hands read it changed her life.

“I was just blown away by what the hand reader told me about myself,” she recalled. “I couldn’t even articulate it.”  She eventually quit her high-paying job as a project manager for Boeing and became a fulltime hand reader. “I’m not in it to make a million but it is very fulfilling. There is nothing else I want to do in my life, especially those times when someone learns something new about themselves.”

Our daughter, Mercedes, a freshman at Exeter High School, was eager to get her hands read, so I drove her up to Kay’s Three Rivers studio to discover her life’s purpose.

 Kay Packard printing Mercedes hands

Kay Packard studies the handprint of Mercedes Oldenbourg (above)

Kay starts by taking prints of both hands. Because we live in a right-handed world, even lefties use their right hand most often. Only one percent will predominately use their left hand and Kay can tell because the left print will come out stronger. The right hand represents the person in the outside world and the left hand represents how they are at home.

Her analysis is based on both the physical hands and the small details that can be better seen on the prints. Living in Three Rivers could limit her clientele, but Kay does about ninety percent of her readings by long distance, either over the phone, Skype or on the computer. She sends the client a print kit, which is returned with their payment. Kay has thousands of prints and keeps an archive in case the client wants her to do a follow-up reading and compare any changes that might have happened in the hand’s lines.

Kay starts the reading by examining her client’s fingerprints. “I look at the finger tips to see what the soul’s agenda is,” said Kay.

Your fingerprints were formed when you were in the womb five months before birth and are unalterable from that point forward. She can’t tell you when you will get married or how many babies you will have, but your fingertips can tell you what your soul wants to experience. She will be able to see what life’s lessons will come your way and what challenges you will face. Coming to an understanding that struggles are really life lessons is what makes a hand analysis such a transformative experience. A client’s view can fundamentally change from negative feelings of sorrow and anger, to feelings of gratitude for their struggles.

“Those struggles will ultimately strengthen your soul’s purpose,” said Kay.

The lines on your hand, such as the heart, life and head line, and any markings that stand out like whorls, dots or stars, can reveal some of your talents, gifts and strengths. Your palm also reveals some of the challenges you are facing in life.

After letting her eye wander over Mercedes’ hand, like looking through a forest and seeing what pops out, Kay revealed that Mercedes’ life purpose was to be a teacher. This does not necessarily mean a teacher in the traditional sense but could mean being a mentor or guide or example.

“She is the go-to girl for information,” Kay explained.

Service apparently is Mercedes’ life path, and when she teaches in the line it is going to bring her great satisfaction. Mercedes will pursue three avenues of service: one to herself, a second to her family, friends and community and a third to make the planet a better place. One of her biggest life challenges will be to keep these three areas of service in balance and not lose herself in the process.

One of Mercedes’ biggest life challenges will be engaging in power struggles. People will try and have authority over her, or will be telling her what to do and when. She will have to learn to stand her ground and and decide for herself when, and how, she is going to be of service.

“By default, your little soul is a helper: reliable, dependable and capable of doing a great job,” said Kay.

Another challenge for Mercedes will be to figure out when to jump into a relationship or when to stay back. She is also a healer, which ties into her teacher role, in the sense she has the capability to listen and give people good advice – leading them to be able to heal themselves.

The heart line, the first major line on your palm, reveals how you relate to people and how you like to be treated. Mercedes had a hermit heart line, which means she needs to have her own space, her own sanctuary. She needs to take her time to decide how she feels and needs to be alone with her thoughts. Surprises aren’t her thing and loyalty is important to her. She won’t have a large group of friends but a few good friends.

The middle line on your palm is the head line, which represents your mental system. Mercedes head line indicates that she is very creative and more emotional, which is in conflict with her hermit line. Kay advised journaling to relieve this conflict between the two.

The life line is the last of the three dominate lines on your palm. It does not indicate how long you will live but how vital your energy system is. A long clear life line means that you have good health and bounce back quickly if you get sick.

Other prominent features on Mercedes’ hands were her girdles of Venus, the star of Apollo, and a peacock on her index finger, which meant she was sort of a maverick. Kay also looks at each finger and the shape of your hand. The dominant finger is the straightest and most prominent. The shape of the hand can be determined by taking off the thumb and determining if you have a square, pear or other shaped hand.

Kay was emphatic when she said that anyone can learn to do hand analysis. It does take some intuition, but intuition develops by default after doing readings for awhile. Everything is a vibration, and hands are a vibrational imprint, so “I’m not only looking at your hands but I am feeling them also.” This intuition can develop by itself, but Kay’s graduate program at the University of Santa Monica had techniques that helped her tap into her inner voice.

Kay just finished writing her first book, Your Life is in Your Hands and is currently looking for a publisher. In it she reproduces fifty handprints so that readers can pick out markings similar to theirs and do their own mini-reading.

Whether teaching hand analysis through her book or trainings, Kay wants people to live a more profound and meaningful life. As she sees it, “the soul-print for anyone’s life is locked in the skin carvings on the hands and most importantly the fingerprint patterns.  How amazing is that?”

Riley’s Prints Span Nine Years

Below you’ll find a photo of Riley’s hand prints spanning nine years.  Her first printing was in December 2003 when she was seven years old. I’ve included Mom and Dad’s prints. My next step is to look for changes between Riley’s handprints through the years. Then I’ll look for commonalities with her parents. Also on file are her grandparents, great grand mother, one uncle, two cousins and her brother and sister. Did you know the family’s purpose can be determined based on a composite of their fingerprints?

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.

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.

Illuminating Your Style

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards mesmerized me from my big American screen TV last night. Riveted to every word spoken and adoring each voluptuous glamour shot I drooled. I LOVE to match movie star actor characteristics to markings in the hands, especially the heart lines and hand shapes.  Perhaps a strong finger description reveals itself for an added bonus.

One piece of advice I heard is something that we all can benefit from in our entrepreneurial businesses.  Angela Jolie answered a Twitter question from a young, new, enthusiastic, actor to the industry.  The question asked for her counsel how to break into the film industry.  To my surprise she responded with “go out into the world and gain experience; travel.”  “Get a wide variety of experience and find out who you are.”  She added, “Then bring that back to your acting”. Wow, I would have thought of 20 other answers she could have given.  However, I loved her answer because any new, enthusiastic entrepreneur can embrace and shine with that same advice.

What I heard Angela say is “Find out who you are and develop your style.  I love comedy.  Tina Fey, Lucille Ball, Jack Black, Jim Carry, Mary Tyler Moore, and Alec Baldwin are some of my favorite comedians.  Consider each of them individually.  They’re each in the over-arching category of comedian but each has his and her own style. 

Hand Analysts for example, can use the breadth of experience outside of reading hands to tightly weave into their practice.  In fact, life experience is imperative for the success of the Hand Analyst.  Life Purpose Fulfillment of the Practitioner is crucial when coaching, mentoring, guiding and advising their clients.

If you’re a Hand Analyst, consider these steps:

1)      Go out and LIVE – fully

2)      Be present in all of your experience

3)      Observe your life lesson at play

4)      Notice your life lesson catalyzing your life purpose

5)      Witness, embrace and SHOW YOUR style

Bring YOU into to your practice.  Tina Fey doesn’t act like Jim Carry or Lucille Ball, although they may have influences on Tina. There is only one Tina

Inspiring and Intense Artistic Mastery

I’d like this 8-Year Old to be on my radar for years to come because of a few significant markings on her left hand (below).  One particular line called the Line of Apollo is stretching from the bottom of her palm up toward her ring finger (in pink).  While it is running a jagged course it still very much indicates the design of a professional artist.  Think of someone in the spotlight, maybe on the silver screen, who is a writer, performer with voice and instrument and possibly even a director, all wrapped in one.

She also has a Simian Line running horizontal along her hand from one side to the other (dark teal).  The key word for this line is intensity.  The emotional and mental systems are merged together.  They form a union and lend to the owner doing what they do with all of their being. 

Because of the inside organization of emotions with thoughts there can be a sense of misunderstandings with others.  With extra care in the communications department  – which means purposeful practice in clarifying messages – she can develop into a master of communications.  Combine the preceding with the last minute veering of the Apollo Line toward the pinkie finger – the finger of communications – and we may see a theme of interpreting and translating in original and innovative form. 

As a reminder, I am not making predictions about her future.  The lines can change and are most likely to change with her personal development.  The markings in the hand tend to indicate the preferences and inclinations of the owner.

One other line to note is the orange vertical line reaching up toward the index finger.  This is the line of inspiration and ambition.  This tells me she has an urge to surge with vision.  Her high ideals stimulate her vision and thus lead to her inspiring nature.

When combining just these three lines she has the talent of an inspiring and intense artist on her way to mastery.  Skills are required to develop mastery and in her case the following will help: practice and persistence in communicating her creative wants, visions, ideas and innovations; then doing them! 

On a side note, her life purpose is the Successful Pioneer.  As she handles the arrows, stands true to her values and trusts her inner voice, I’d imagine we’ll see big things from this little one.   Stay tuned!

 

Hand Analysis of The Passionate Explorer

Below are two markings in the palm of the hand to give me a clue that this 15-year-old is on a passionate exploration at Life U.   

What I explained to her:

The purple line running across your palm at the top of the hand is your heart line.  This type of line is called the Passionate heart line.  This tells me that you like excitement and despise boredom. You can express your emotions with a fire-like nature – quick and blunt.  This line also indicates that you are charismatic and people like to be around you, like they would a campfire.  People become mesmerized by the ‘colors’ you exude – blue, red, purple, orange… all those fire-like colors.  The passionate type usually does a good job at expressing her “I wants”.  While you may not always get them, expressing what you want is healthy because you express the energy that wants to be expressed like a river unblocked by a damn.  The upside of your heart line is that you are fun, outgoing, excitable, enthusiastic and passionate.  On a ‘bad day’ you can move into YOUR ‘I wants’ too deeply and forget the desires of others. To balance this it’s good to maintain your desires AND also consider the desires of others.  

The pink curving line toward the bottom outer edge of your palm tells me you seek out stimulation as an explorer and investigator.  Again, boredom will drive you crazy so it’s good that you read and have many new opportunities at high school to satisfy your inquisitiveness.  You can also think of this as being a line of curiosity; you like to keep things interesting. Seeking the un-ordinary is ordinary for you.

With the highest ranking fingerprint on your right ring finger, your Life purpose is the Artist – the Woman in the Spotlight being true to her muse.  Expressing your SELF is the most important thing you can do – it’s what you came here to do.  Your life challenge is to feel accomplished and successful while being true to YOU, standing your ground…. all on the life foundation of Peace and Harmony.  I read your ‘challenge’ from your fingerprint patterns on your right Thumb, right middle finger and left ring finger.  The arches on your fingerprints resemble mounds of the earth.  The earth is secure and provides a solid foundation.  You’ll feel best when you feel secure.

As with most things, to know one side you have to know the opposite.  When it comes to Peace, a person, like you, will best know Peace by experiencing and moving through sensations of Panic.  You may feel panic running through your body at different times under various circumstances.  The best thing you can do is to BREATE your way through it and silently remind yourself that you ARE SAFE.  You do have nice long vitality/life lines so you are able to ‘ground’ with ease. 

Observations: What’s attention-grabbing is the paradoxical combination of the deep desire for peace and harmony along with the need to explore and investigate the unusual.  Oddly enough, for this youngster, her tranquility could very well be found in her most stimulating adventures.  With a flirtatious flair, she could push the envelope, dance to the edge and sing to the masses with the circ-de-sole, as an example.

 

Hand Analysis X-Ray Vision

See if you have x-ray vision showing in your hands. One or more arcs on the mount under the Index (Jupiter) finger is called the “Rings of Solomon.”  The owner of these lines typically has an unerring ability to understand human character and offer profound counsel.  S/he can be a teacher who brings deep insight since they are able to see through the façade of things. The more rings the stronger the ability and the need to be a major theme in the life.   If the line(s) are straight the owner is more inclined to use reason when ‘seeing’.  If the line(s) are curved and arcing on the Jupiter mount the owner will include more emotion in their counsel.

Heart Line Fork – Bend-Over-Backwards

Do you rearrange your emotions for others?  Check the Heart Line configuration in your hand.  If you have a line forking off the main Heart Line that looks like a waterfall, you may be rearranging your feelings and actions based on your perceptions of others’ needs and feelings – specifically someone who you view as an ‘underdog’. See the example below where the heart line and the fork are shown in purple.  This indicates a person may often say “Yes” when they really, really want to say “No”.   Hurting feelings is to be avoided at all cost.

Suggestions:

1) Notice the internal emotional rearrangement happening within you

2) Be conscious of YOUR desires and feelings

3) Take your time to silently address another person’s emotional needs without responding right away to his/her words.  Give yourself time to ask yourself what you’d like to do (based on #2 above).

4) Give yourself permission to say “Yes” or “No” in self-loving way.

5) Release self-judgment and critism that you should be emotionally connected in any other way than you are.
