Welcome to the last mastermind community webinar this year. Find below the 3 sets of hands we’ll discuss on Thur. Dec. 6th, 4:00 to 5:15pmPT.
The shape of the Mercury Line reveals the nature of a person’s capacity and style for perceiving. Straight Mercury Lines belong to people who are curious and have keen insights. Curving Mercury Lines, as in Figure 1 below, belong to individuals who are in constant contact, consciously or unconsciously, with the celestial, attuned to messages from the Divine. Because this line bows around the Moon mound, you’ll find someone with a natural capacity for diving into crisis of meaning and somehow finding words to make sense of it. On their advanced path, they understand the meaning of life and construct careers as transformational coaches, life purpose consultants, spiritual advisors, life strategists, counselors and ministers.
The owner of a Mercury Line that arcs around the Moon is curious about and considers elements related to dreams, spirituality, the subliminal, unmet emotional needs, and the reality of beliefs. People with Mercury Lines resembling the Figure included in this article have most likely found themselves asking themselves, “What’s the point of living?” and/or “Why are we here?” during times of alienation, stagnation and feeling trapped in the illusion of separation from the self. While the potential of constant contact with the Divine is very high, equally and opposite is the possibility of not trusting what’s ‘coming in’ and remaining focused entirely on logic instead.
If you have this deeply curving Mercury Line, you most likely understand the feeling of disillusionment and disappointment with life. A sense of despair has led you to ask, “Why?” which is a crucial step toward listening inward for answers. As you stop struggling with the sense of desolation, let go of reason, and accept that you just don’t know why, you find that you surrender to higher intelligence, which then begins to operate through you. You can then allow and trust this special internal mechanism within you that is constantly attuned for deep inner awareness.
After teaching about of this type of Mercury Line in my certification program, one student with this configuration confirmed the description saying,
“I worked 14 years in a job where I had little to zero contact with other people. I worked on secret projects and could never talk about my work. I got sick a lot with migraine headaches, felt alone and numbed out. I finally quit that job because I realized life should not be just making money and paying bills. My heart was longing for freedom, freedom for creative expression. I craved deep, meaningful connections with people instead of just working on computers and projects in isolation.”
She has since developed her skills by becoming a Reiki Master /Healer, ThetaHealing® Practitioner, an influential speaker, and intuitive Scientific Hand Analyst and is now working as an inspirational counselor, interpreting the messages marked in the hands to the owners so that they can know why they are here and how to live with meaning in their lives.
After contemplating the interpretation of the Line of Intuition on her hand, another certified hand analyst told me:
“Yes, I do relate to the natural capacity for understanding the meaning in the life crisis -in my own and in other’s, and I have a near compulsion to explain it to a person who’s in the middle of a crisis. I can make sense of things (from an interior perspective), and when a person is asking for my input and is ready to receive it, I can help them make sense of their experiences. Explaining to someone who isn’t ready to hear it leaves me feeling unseen and misunderstood, and is probably boring or annoying for them. I find that my audience is not always interested, especially not at work so it is a challenge to moderate my natural intuitive communications to fit into the analytical workplace style. I’ve really developed a good practice and the experience to know and trust what’s coming in most of the time, and I can vouch for the experience of constant contact, anytime I put my attention on it, its there. But being immersed in the logic of my technology company workplace is like that unsettled, off balance feeling when you don’t trust your own gut. In the office there are lots of interruptions and I’m surrounded by people all the time. It’s a hectic place and instead of listening to and trusting my intuition, I’m usually just reacting to my environment. With the primary focus on logic for the job it’s hard to go deep and open up to listen and receive.”
Medical Intuitive Caroline Myss exemplifies what this marking is about as a translator of meaning through her lectures about the invisible energy system running through our bodies called the chakras. In her book Anatomy of the Spirit she interprets the symbols of the soul in easy to understand lessons. She has become very well known through helping people learn the language of the human energy system so that they can better understand themselves as a way through spiritual challenges. Her life revolves around deciphering meaning in everything around her. In her case she intuits illness as it relates to energetic power leaks within a person. Does she have this line on either of her hands, or both? I don’t know but I’d like to find out.
Intuition is a skill anyone can develop, and would benefit by doing so. If you don’t have this line in your hand it doesn’t mean that you’re not intuitive or cannot be intuitive. By having this Line of Clairvoyance there is a higher probability, on the path to mastery, that the challenges will be quite evident. What I mean by this is that reliance on logic and ignoring the hunches you’re getting will block development. I think of this simply as a road sign indicator letting you know you’re off track and ‘correction’ is needed. Will you trust what you are sensing from within?
Internal oppositions are normal. When they are recognized and brought together you’ll have the perfect ingredients for fuller expression of this gift of highly attuned perception.
Mantra: As I follow and trust myself through my own crisis of meaning I am able to skillfully support others through exploration of the deeper parts of themselves.
Have you found your “right” work, yet? If so, was it an easy road to discover your ideal vocation? Or did you have to drag yourself to work you didn’t like on your path to get to your ‘just right’ work? Or are you asking yourself, “What else could I be doing rather than ‘this’? Or do you just feel flat out – stuck?
Clients see me when they feel empty and unfulfilled, which is exactly how I felt before deciding to leave my corporate career of 23 years in 2009. By outer world standards I had the optimal career and a killer salary! I was truly happy for many early-years at Hughes Aircraft Company. During the later-years I was proud to say, “I work for the Boeing Company.” However, the tasks I did didn’t thrill my Inner satisfaction meter.
People typically ask me for guidance when they are
· Looking for something new, but are just not sure what it is
· Preparing to leave an old job or way of life
· Looking for validation that they are currently on the right path
· Feeling under utilized at work and want more responsibility and a promotion
· Preparing to retire and wondering what to “do” next
· Hesitating to quite a job they hate when they are within 5 years of retirement
This is when hand analysis and coaching pair together for optimal results because people can move through change with clarity and conviction. I believe people truly want to step into a bigger aspect of themselves.
Everyone seeks fulfillment and each person has a unique formula for fulfillment.
When have you felt fulfilled and how did you know you were? For me I have feel deep inner peace, centeredness and a sense of equanimity.
Synonyms for “fulfillment” include:
On a scale from 1-10, 10 being happiest, 1 being hopeless, where would you rate yourself right now?
After my mom died in 2005 my life took a drastic turn toward optimal living. All the sudden life became very, very precious to me. She always encouraged me to not only work, but to do work I loved.
Look for following articles how to use the concrete map in the hands to pinpoint a person’s purposeful vocation using God-given gifts and talents for harmonious employment. It is literally inscribed in the hands. I’m excited and honored to share this with you so that you can live your very best life for the rest of your life!
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.
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 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?”

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 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 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!
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.

by Kay Packard
There is a particular etching in the palm of the hand that illustrates immense sensitivity to the energy patterns of the Universe. The print below shows two arrows pointing to a line arcing below the two middle fingers on the upper area of the palm.
The term “Girdle of Venus” is used in older Palmistry although it is nowhere near the Mount of Venus. Vernon Mahabal calls this marking “The Line of Neptune” because of the area of the Palm he associates the marking to. Regardless of the name the explanations are similar.
If you have this marking, you may have learned to manage your profound sensitivity to the force of suffering and sadness with invisible or visible ear muffs. Ear protection is symbolic for much needed protection from wide scale energies that can be exceedingly overwhelming. The sensation of misery, agony and torment can feel unbearable. In reaction to this subtle and usually indescribably agitation, you may have chosen to live in the country or along the open coast line, away from the pin ball energy bounce of the city.
It’s very important to care for yourself and the effects of the invisible antennas permanently mounted to the top of your head. You are in constant contact, tuned in, tapped in and turned on to subtle energies at a universal level.
On a bad day, at your worst, if the sensitivities are not treated with great care and attention, you could develop addictions to escape the all consuming energetic world. Addictions to drugs or alcohol appear to numb the affects of the hidden forces of energy. If you increase your attention on the worldly suffering, unhealthy fantasy, delusion and false ideals may consume and replace your capacity of vast and insightful vision.
At your very best you will harness the elevated vision you carry with your faith in the Divine and fully utilize your experience and skill working for Universal Welfare. Perhaps you choose to perform as a deeply caring Doctor, Nurse, Social Worker, Hospice Worker, Green Peace worker a Nun or some Spiritual function helping at a worldly level. Hand Analysis, Quantum Healing, World Wide Meditation Circles, Habitat for Humanity, Emotional Freedom Techniques and other Metaphysical fields bring out the psychology of the heart. On the Master Path, the owner knows how to use the appropriate dosage of suffering – just enough to cultivate their understanding and love. There is a capability to cultivate compassion for all living beings.
If you hold this marking in your hand, consider how life would look for you if you were to fully utilize your gift of universal compassion, caring and love out in the world.
Only when there is understanding of suffering can there be acceptance and love. “If there were no suffering how could we understand our own suffering and the suffering of others in order to accept and truly love them?” Sister Dang Nghiem – Disciple of Thich Nhat Hanh
The owner of this Line of love on a grand scale learns from the pain and transforms that pain into understanding and awareness. Then the suffering no longer paralyzes, overwhelms or drives one into fanaticism and escape. As this happens you realize you carry the energy of the buddhas and bodhisattvas.
