Here’s an exercise that will shift everything for you.
Imagine there is a light source inside your chest. You can turn the dimmer switch up or down.
Whenever you feel you lack something imagine that all you do is turn up the dimmer switch so that you radiate whatever it is you feel you lack.
The same applies to your purpose and lesson. If you already know your purpose, imagine turning up the dimmer switch and simply radiating that quality. Similarly, if you know what your life lesson is, simply find its opposite pole (your exalted lesson) then imagine yourself turning up your dimmer switch even more, until you are radiating out this quality too. For example, if your life lesson is about finding self worth then the advanced state is the teacher of self worth, the mentor. Simply imagine yourself radiating this quality into the world around you.
This is how you shine.
As soon as you think, “But I’m not that!” You’ve turned the dimmer switch back down. Simply turn it back up again and feel the warm glow flowing through all the cells of your being.
If you are not sure what your purpose or your lesson is you can get a work it out yourself from your fingerprints. Or simply go back to the beginning of this exercise. Choose any feeling of lack and then imagine radiating out an abundance of whatever it is you feel you lack. Click here to read more …
It might surprise you to hear this but nearly every horizontal line in your hands indicates some form of negative imagination. These lines show where your limiting beliefs or ideas are; stories you are telling yourself about yourself, your circumstances or other people.
The location of each of these lines is precise, leaving valuable clues about the nature or subject under discussion.
Herein lies the real gift of hand analysis: you can clearly see the fine root structure just below the surface of your life. Lines represent thoughts you are watering frequently with your emotions. The good news is, knowing this enables you to root out negative or destructive thoughts or beliefs before they have more impact on whatever is going on above the surface. An opportunity for radical de-weeding of your inner landscape.
Thoughts create things. Negative imagination creates unwanted experiences whereas positive imagination enables a tectonic shift in outcomes.
From this perspective perhaps one can actually predict the future. It is based on where you are putting your thoughts and emotions today. A object set in motion doesn’t change direction unless acted upon by a different force. By changing your thoughts and how you feel (the quality of your presence) you change the outcome and hence also the future.
My work with hands has changed radically in the last few months due to a very subtle shift in perspective.
This is the realisation that life purpose is not something to be chased, but rather something to be inhabited, or simply switched on, the way one turns up the dimmer knob of an internal light. Your life purpose is a feeling state not an action. A way to shine knowing that the source is within not without. A being, not a doing.
A goal is something quite different – a stick thrown ahead and achievable. Whereas life purpose is part of who you are. Something you need to be wagging rather than chasing.
If you are not sure what your purpose is, and how to wag it rather than chase it, your fingerprints can help you understand what governs your tail wagging more than anything else I’ve ever come across. You can get a free report on this here.
Here’s a video of dogs chasing their own tails. Perhaps, in their dreams, dogs have a channel they can tune into where they chortle at us just as much going round and round in a similar manner. Click here to read more …
I’ve just received Kay Packard’s new hand analysis book “Your Life is in your hands” in the post and I’m delighted. This is the book we have all been waiting for. The very first basic hand analysis book on the market from the Richard Unger lineage, written in English for a broader audience. Kay’s thinking is not pure Unger/IIHA. She has also been significantly influenced by Venon Mahabal. Further, Kay adds her own deep spiritual wisdom to this well written work.
Kay’s book will play a significant role in healing a lot of misconceptions out there due to what was written by palmists of yesterday, and about hand reading in general.
The meaning of life lines, the myth re life lines and longevity.
Breaks in the life line and how to interpret them.
The meaning of Simian lines, heart lines, head lines, vertical lines.
The book breaks the spell of fear and dread cast upon people who believe they are doomed due to a marker in their hands.
Kay explains how every marker has both a positive and a negative aspects and you can use both to unlock your potential and improve your life.
The book includes sections on hand shape and mythological archetypes.
This is a self help book but it is also a “must have” for any serious hand analyst, hand reader or palm reader.
I particularly like her chapter on reading hands mindfully. Click here to read more …
Isn’t it interesting how at one depth your partner might look like a beautiful mermaid or a friendly dolphin. Yet at another depth, under intense pressure, the identical person suddenly turns into a deep sea monster?
It’s a cosmic joke really – how we seem to attract and be attracted to the one person who can really push all our buttons. Why is this? And how can, instead of ending up in a totally dark place (inside the belly of the beast?), how can we play the game with love and support instead of getting eaten alive?
Last night Tomar Levine and I completed the final chapter of our new “mindfulness at your fingertips” course. The focus of the 9th call in this series was on sacred partnership. Seeing the game and embracing the collaboration.
What did we discuss?
We discussed the alchemy of relationship – and why we need it.
We also explored how your fingerprints show your trigger points and how knowing each other’s hidden drives helps one to create a safe haven for both to do the work required. This is the real beauty of relationship; being both the vehicle and the vessel for each other’s transformation. Not just one or the other.
Some other key points we discussed:
That happiness is an inside job.
That thought is creative and emotions breathe life into our thoughts.
We can’t change another person but we can choose a different response. Or a different story to tell ourselves about whatever is going on.
How do you choose to react? As a victim or as a judge? Or as a compassionate witness?
Compassion is the key, particularly self compassion, and seeing through the painful stories we use to keep ourselves trapped in the underworld.
And then the miracle – as we change the stories we tell ourselves (and hence, how we feel) our partner mysteriously changes too.
Why is this?
Instead of trying to fix the mirror, as we transform so does what we see reflected back to us.
A few nights ago I had a viviid dream of a huge lion lying on my chest, pinning me down with both paws. He was a lot like the Sphinx, overbearing but inactive. I tried to tell him he wasn’t actually real. That if I just knew how to focus properly he would dissolve into the illusion he really was. Yet he felt very real to me. I could feel his fur, his claws in my shoulders, his weight. I tried pushing him off and nearly had my hand bitten off. Then I tried a different tactic. Love. Staring into his eyes sending love and kindness. He simply stared back sternly, his eyes incredibly all knowing but merciless. They seemed to reach all the way back to infinity and beyond. What was he expressing? Impartiality? Impatience? Clearly he was growing restless. I was moments away from being eaten alive and there seemed to be not a damned thing I could do about it. Then, at the very last second, someone from afar darted him and he rolled off me lifelessly. I hated the idea that I was rescued by someone else instead of “conquering” the lion myself, singlehandedly. But then I realised, this is a dream and every character in it is just another part of myself. So which part of me took positive action? The archer?
And why am I telling you this dream?
I’ve written a couple of posts that will help you wrestle with your own lions. And see them for what they really are.
Do you know that nearly half of the lines on your hand are “lions” not lines?
Why do I say that?
These lions/lines indicate the self created beasts (the stories we tell ourselves) that hold us in their grip sometimes for an entire lifetime. Seeing them for what they are is the first step to freeing yourself from their grip.
Think of me as just another part of you. The archer. These words reaching out to you through time and space to help you immobilise whatever lion currently has you by the throat.
Here’s a pic of someone who has learned how to manage his own lions through mindfulness.
Simply allowing them to be without breathing life into any of them.
Thought is creative. The thoughts you think today become the reality you live tomorrow. Most thoughts need to be let go of rather than be energized.
Here are a few pic’s of “Worry lions” on the upper thumb. (Traditionally called “worry lines”)
The upper thumb is all about manifestation.
They indicate worrying about life circumstances and lack in general and non manifestation as a result.

Eeyore! Eeyore! This is going to be my new mantra every time I catch myself trying too hard
to “do” my life purpose.
What do I mean?
Have you noticed? The harder you try to grab onto your purpose the more elusive it gets?
Why can’t you just have what you really want?
It might astonish you to hear this but your life purpose is not actually “do-able” through traditional action plans.
Just as the donkey can’t reach the carrot by running faster because it’s attached to him (as he moves, it moves), so too with your life purpose.
Think of it as your cosmic carrot. It’s part of the mechanism that drives you.
The bait that motivates you to continue playing this wretched-blessed game called life.
Or as someone once said to me:
“You can’t change the program by running it.
You can’t change the program because you are the program.”
Here in lies the key to living your purpose:
“Life purpose is a consciousness to inhabit not an action to take” Richard Unger
You can’t have it because you already ARE it. It is not something to have or to do, it is something to be.
You can’t “do” being. That’s like trying to become more yin by applying more yang.
Another year of Earth School classes with Richard Unger and Jena Griffiths starts soon.
In 2015 we will be exploring the Life Purposes in depth.
We’ll also be exploring Heart and the Spiritual Journey markers. Click here to read more …
Last week was the final call of the Gift Marker Topic Series with Richard Unger.
In the spirit of this marker (the pure heart) I have decided to give this call to you as a year end holiday present.
What did we discuss?
We discussed the Pure heart type (which is a very rare gift marking).Scroll down to see an example. Though rare in its purest form, this type embodies the spirit of the year end festivities. All heart.
We also looked at Venus Stars of various types (not a gift marker). Click here to read more …
How can you use your fingerprints as a mindfulness tool?
Your fingerprints are your unique blueprint for mindfulness
because they reveal what governs your emotions:
What makes you feel fulfilled. And what shuts you down.
You have a unique song to sing that only you can express.
This is what the world is waiting for. This is how you are meant to contribute. By being yourself.
