Are you a gifted healer?

If you have four or more parallel lines under your pinkie finger, running towards your pinkie (little finger), you are what is known as a “gifted healer”.

You can see that this looks like here. Also scroll to bottom of the post for a hand print example.)
medical stigmata, gifted healer marker

Essentially, this is the mark of the personal growth consultant. It indicates psychological insight.  How this is expressed depends on other factors in your personality. 

If you have this marker it means you have the capacity to make a space for others to heal themselves. Like a catalyst, just your presence enables others to transform.

Perhaps you do this with touch, or energy work or simply by listening (being present) or by offering wisdom (when asked!). For example, someone with a very Earth hand and Earth heart line (non expressive) might take a friend fishing for the day. No word is said the whole day but at the end of the day, the friend turns and says, ‘Thank you so much. You really helped me today!’

Angling.




“Somewhere we know that without silence words lose their meaning, that without listening speaking no longer heals, that without distance closeness cannot cure.”

― Henri J.M. Nouwen, the wounded healer


So, perhaps you heal by helping another person become more grounded. You help to ‘Earth’ the other because you yourself are so earthed. Naturally, if you have a Fire hand and an expressive Water (big heart) heart line, you’ll be expressing this gift in a completely different way.

BTW, it’s not your task to fix or heal anyone. You are simply the facilitator of this process in others. As soon as we try to ‘fix’ anyone we do the opposite as we are judging the other person as un-whole. Rightly so, this causes disconnection and even distrust or anger.

How to hone your skills:
1. Fully acknowledge and accept yourself. The more you comfortable you are in your own skin, the more willing and able you are to accept others ‘warts and all’ (unconditionally). The less internal contradictions you have the less threatened you will be by other people’s experiences and behaviour.
2. Know what your own values are. If you know what is important to you, you become less dependent on others for praise and evaluation. You also become less likely to have your boundaries violated or to do the same to others (eg. trying to fix them). Helping others become conscious of their values is a powerful way to help them strengthen boundaries, heal and set meaningful goals. You can only do this if you have already made the journey
yourself.

3. Become a master listener. This is the simplest (and in some ways also most difficult) way to live this gift marker. Becoming an interested listener is an art. Our minds race far faster than human speech and one needs to learn skills to keep one focused on what the other is really saying. Try to anticipate what they might be trying to say and then double check
if you were right or not. What is the hidden message behind what they are telling you? Is their body language, voice tone and speech congruent? Essentially what people need is to be heard, without feeling they are being judged. Paraphrase what they tell you asking, ‘if I hear you correctly, you said……’. Besides paraphrasing, try also to mirror the other person’s voice tone, vocabulary, speed of speech and body language. If you would like to develop counselling skills more fully, one way would be to study the techniques of Carl Rogers, the great humanistic psychologist of the 1980s. Most counselling courses these days are based on his ‘client-centred’ approach.’
(You can take a very inexpensive half-year on-line module in
‘person-centred’ counselling using these techniques through UNISA (University of South Africa online courses).)
Essentially, the skills are how to maintain continuous positive regard for another and still stay congruent with your own belief system.

4. Become more intimate with yourself. This is similar to points 1 and 3 above but refers more to your connection with source, the extra psychological insight that you have coming to you. Do you listen and act on inner guidance? Do you trust your intuition? Do you stay with your own truth irrespective of what others are saying?

5. Surrender. This is something most of us would rather avoid that own up to but it is central to being a gifted healer. Surrender has to do with aligning your will to the will of God/Source. Mostly we are terrified to lose control of our own lives because we fear lightening bolts, poverty, isolation and other impossible tests of faith related to previous experience.

What does this marker look like?
This is a series of parallel stripes below the pinkie (Mercury) finger
Earning your stripes
4 stripes means you are a gifted healer
6 stripes you need to make this gift central to your life, preferably your profession.
8 stripes or more – you are a healer of healers.
How do you know if you are using this gift enough?
How much is enough is very individual. Your most intimate relationship is your barometer. If you are experiencing blocked intimacy or partnership breakdown then perhaps it’s a sign that you need to rise up to your own possibilities and share your gift with the world.

You’re a healer and you don’t have these lines?
Don’t ever beat yourself up about what you do or don’t have in your hands. If you love someone deeply but you never write your beloved a love letter, does that mean there’s no love? Of course not.
Healing capacities show up in several different ways in your hands.

  • Mark Wright

    hmm
    i am probably just trusting this is so,
    nah!
    i dont think it is possible just coincidence
    buuut maybe
    so i looked at my best beloved hands – it is nothing like my hand
    i do appear to have the lines and a few stars well crosses actually
    in reality(?)i feel i am always looking for something, the answer
    so it could me just being fanciful and aspiring
    oohh quite exciting

  • I just love your weblog! Very nice post! Still you can do many things to improve it.

  • The best information i have found exactly here. Keep going Thank you

  • I have been looking looking around for this kind of information. Will you post some more in future? I’ll be grateful if you will.

  • Some of us even don’t realize the importance of this information. What a pity.

  • Hey
    Are you a gifted healer? (Free palm reading lesson) , great article, really well though out and very much enjoyed.

    Cheers

  • Ankush

    I wanna to learn Palm reading. This is a very good article for it.

  • John

    that’s pretty interesting now huh.. i have a pinkie with 3 parallel lines on it. is there a book on this?

  • wonderful post you shared with the users really appreciate your work learned from your information.

  • Mike

    Great insight , i know nature has a way of explaining certain spiritual gifts.

  • Hallo,
    sorry für die nicht auf Englisch schreibt, war ich auf der Suche nach, und ich diese Website gefunden, Ich mag Ihre Post-und Ich mag Ihnen für den Austausch zu danken.

    Grüße

  • This is amazing stuff. I always thought this was a myth.

  • This is a really interesting topic. I have always been a bit wary of “gifted” healers but you put across some very valid points. Perhaps it is time to reappraise my beliefs.

  • James Eagan

    Thanks. This is really a great article.

  • Thank you for writing this thoughtful piece on on the medical stigmata. During my first palm reading, years ago, I was informed that my palm had these markings. I believe I just moved out of a penalty phase and again have the opportunity to move towards using my gifts. Thank you for the clarity and reminders. Now, on to courage and pursuing my life purpose and soul path.

    Warmly, Lisa

  • Sophia Feliciano

    I just recently figured out I’m a healer. This article makes so much sense to me. No wonder all my life I have had all kind of people…especially others with special abilities come my way. They always say I help them somehow. A million thanks for this article. I know what I am now :’)

  • Kati

    thank you for this article! it is really very interesting.

  • Natalie

    Wow, this is so interesting. Thank you for sharing and for referring to it again in your email newsletter. I have 8 lines below my pinkie and they are somewhat faint. Would this have to do with not using my gift? (I have been very ill for years.) Or maybe faintness doesn’t matter?

    • Jena

      Natalie,
      8 lines is a big deal, faint or not they are there. Perhaps your illness is one of the challenges on your “heroes journey” preparing you for your role in future? Good luck there. Own your gift. :-)

  • Natalie

    Jena, Thank you! Maybe it is my journey to being a healer that can really help others. I sure hope so!

  • Kit Sturman

    hi Jenna,

    great post about the medical stigmata…

    i’m a 2005 graduate of Richard and Alana’s school and wanted to ask your thoughts re the healer of healer lines..(.i have 8 or so on each hand)…

    even tho we’re the ones to determine what healing looks like to us, what’s your interpretation of ‘healer of healers?’ does that mean that the person works with body and energy workers, inspirational speakers, etc…

    does it indicate a deeper intuitive connectedness? yes, i am caught up in the semantics! lol.what if i use the gift regularly or daily but don’t get paid for it directly…

    if this seems like it needs to be a consultation, please tell me…i’m OK with that…i don’t want to impose on your time and skills without paying you :)

    other characteristics of my hands: handful of whorls, composites on both thumbs, lesson on left Jupiter, a variety of gift markers, mainly earth hands (especially shape) with some firey lines and watery soft skin…

    i am a fitness teacher, currently yoga and Pilates reformer classes; have life coaching and spiritual study/personal growth work…also published writer…i’m (normally) very happy teaching…i am compiling notes and photographs to share with insights…and it truly doesn’t need to take as long as i do or to make it as difficult! just an observation not a criticism!

    much gratitude for reading through this, and sharing your thoughts..

    blessings,

    kit sturman

      Hi Kit,

      This is difficult to answer without actually seeing your hands. Yes, generally this is what it means. Perhaps in your case even teaching other yoga or fitness teachers It sounds like you are doing quite a bit of healing work and perhaps your writing is also an expression of this. That said, the “healer of healers” is a big deal and not a marker to turn one’s back on. Are you concerned that you are not living this marker fully? The fact that you are writing here makes me wonder. Is there a voice inside you telling you there is a lot more?
      Tap into this voice and also look at how you are doing on the relationship front. Perhaps use this as a barometer for whether or not what you are currently doing is “enough” to satisfy the healer of healers.

      If you would like a full consultation here’s the link.
      I would love to advise you further having seen your prints.

  • Munira

    I have these marks in my little finger and somebody pointed out to me that you are a healer. I am not a physical healer but I normally console people who are in pain and help them through talking. People say that I am good at listening

  • Angelica

    Just discovered this website. I recently had a gentleman approach me and talked about how my aura was just bursting with color. I cant remember his exact words but he mentioned being a healer and I’m interested. I have the lines like the picture. Im not sure where to start counting but it looks like there’s 7-8 and a few going towards the top of my hand. I would love to know more. Thanks!

  • Mary-Anne

    What an incredible post and website, thank you!
    I have a different number of lines on the left to right. As a chiropractor and a person with hot “healer” hands I am cool with having these stripes- I have stacks but they are broken and jagged especially on the left versus right.
    Perhaps i should have a consult…
    magic site
    thanks

  • […] button on this site. There are several and some very detailed. (See the old blog in the sidebar) Here’s a popular one. This topic is also covered in detail in the class on Mercury markers, available […]

  • Rande Wagner

    Wow, I’ve seen some powerful palm readings; to find this after so long, and so much training (even since I was 3 years old), and 100′s & 1000′s people coming my way, often looking for me… Makes me feel rather sheepish.
    I am a practicing healer; ReikiMaster, Acupuncturist, Reflexology, trained to adjust, herbologist, and yet still working in this physical plane to wrap it all in a way that gives me a life while still helping others. I have ALL of the markings: 8 to 9 lines under the pinkie, plus many of the palm crosses on the full-hand pictures. I DO heal healers. Now, how do I find a way to make that my life’s work that actually supports me? *sighs*
    Thanks for the additional confirmation, really ;)

  • I was just seeing my favorite “see’re” I have been healing with my hands for only a few months, (I’m 60). I laid my hands on her head for just two minutes because she suffers from migraines. I lifted my hands off her head, and noticed after she opened her eyes, that she could barely open her eyes and her eye’s were dilated. I have 8 very deep lines at the base of my little finger on my left hand.

  • I write them mysef. Its what I love to do.
