What is hand analysis?

People often ask me what hand analysis is, how it is different and how it helps.
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions :

How can hand analysis help?
Hand analysis is all about self discovery and how to unlock your right life.
It is not about how long you are going to live or what might or might not happen.
In hand analysis there is zero prediction about the future.

We explore talents and life purpose and how to access one’s potential.
We look at both soul psychology (deep meaning) and at personality strengths.

What is the difference between hand analysis and other systems?

Hand analysis is a relatively new field of psychology that uses the hand as a mirror of the psyche. I believe that it is the psychology of the future. Many respected psychologists and coaches and counselors are already using it as an entry point to understand core issues and driving forces within the psyche. The focus is not on pathology but on mythology. How to see one’s life, and one’s life challenges, from a larger mythological perspective; from a soul perspective. And how does one’s personality characteristics impact on the larger game.

Life purpose in German

Monika Hauser and Nina Nanz have spent the last few months exploring how they can best bring the Earth School series with Richard Unger and Jena Griffiths to the German speaking community.
The Life Purpose calls that took place in English are now available in German.
Monika and Nina are dedicated to keeping the content and finer nuances of our classes true to the original.

Change your level and change everything

I like to use the imagery of a diver descending deeper and deeper in the ocean
to explain how we can change everything going on in our lives, and in the world, by shifting your level of consciousness (your field of frequency).

November, Friday 13th, I gave a 5 minute talking at Ignite Zurich to explain how this works.
At the same moment, while this event was taking place, not very far away, Paris was under attack.

I had planned to create a longer version of this talk and post it here, but instead I have been exploring what each of us can do to help heal the pain in the world, based on these principles.

You can read my notes and related articles I published here
Pain in the world – how you can help
as well as what this has to do with how to shift levels of consciousness individually and collectively. (Thinking like a diver)
These notes explain the metaphysical principles behind this talk and why it is so important that we each work on ourselves now more than ever if we would like to see radical change in the world.

Soul tracking in Findhorn

Soul Tracking with Jena Griffiths

I feel deeply honored to be able to invite you to join me in Findhorn, Scotland, one of the Earth’s sacred places and possibly the best place in the world to do deep inner work. Findhorn’s Susan Miles and I have created a brand new Life Purpose workshop specially for Findhorn, starting May 7 2016 (for 7 days).

During this workshop we will uncover how we are meant to shine and manifest our divinity by learning to see beyond the illusion of daily circumstance.

Within the apparent duality of our incarnation, we will explore the yin and the yang of life purpose and life lesson. We will learn how to use the inherent polarities in life as a mindfulness tool to more consciously give expression to the soul journey each one of us is here to express.
This will be made possible by exploring our unique blueprint – the soul maps in our fingerprints and the mythological archetypes in our personalities.

At the end of the week we each know how to fully inhabit our purpose and we each take home our unique energy management and soul tracking programme.

This will be my first workshop at Findhorn. Susan has been focalising workshops at the Foundation since 1994. If what you have read here resonates deeply, we would love to have you with us.

Why can’t you live your Life Purpose?

oak tree rootsAs hard as this may be to believe, you can’t not live your live purpose. You are always living it in one form or another. Your purpose is what makes you “you”. Utterly unique. Even when you feel off purpose you are still living your life purpose, albeit on another level. Experience in the seemingly opposite direction is what is required for your purpose to blossom.

There are numerous ways to make sense of this. One way is to use an oak tree analogy: usually all we see is the huge sturdy tree, but as soon as you start wondering, how does it get to be so big, strong and sturdy? Only then do you become aware of its hidden “alter ego”: the massive, unseen “taken for granted” root structure deep underground. This part is often far bigger than the visible part. You can’t have the one without the other. So too with your purpose.
Similarly, there’s the lotus flower analogy: without the mud that it grows in there would be no blossom.
Another analogy is to think of your lifetime as a tapestry: you can’t create a pattern without creating the reverse pattern on the other side. This is the messy underbelly where all the work gets done, knots tied, threads backtracked, seeming errors made yet it all make perfect sense when you look at the beautiful pattern on the upper side…
Each of these analogies elegantly explains how experience is required and how opposites apply.

The Grammar of Hand Analysis

Every hand has a Delicious Dilemma. Find it and you are at the core of your reading.” – Richard Unger

Learning to decipher the language of hands is like learning any language.
We can figure out a lot intuitively when we know the meaning of some words and if we make constant attempts to keep practicing and get feedback. However we can speed up our fluency and really master the language when we actively learn the grammar.

Here’s an example from personal experience. About 15 years ago, when I first started learning German, I made the mistake of learning a large vocabulary of nouns without learning the associated article (die, der, das) because English has only one article, namely “the”, I didn’t think it was that important.
Result: I made mastery of the language an impossible task. German is incredibly precise. I couldn’t figure out how mother tongue German speakers instinctively knew which article to use. It was only when I learnt the Swiss nickname for a toy doll which is “Babelli” and then heard the kids saying s’Babelli I realized that, even in the colloquial dialects, Swiss kids were always learning the article “das” shortened to “s’-” as part of the word. To learn one without the other (like I did) is like learning only half of each word. Naturally you are never going to be fluent no matter how huge your vocabulary.

Why am I telling you this?

The same applies to hand analysis. Click here to read more …

Understanding Fingerprints

understanding fingerprintsThere are lots of different hypotheses about what fingerprints could mean. And lots of different interpretations of these different theories too.
Some medical researchers relate the differences in pattern to chemical conditions in the womb. However, identical twins, with identical DNA, who experienced identical womb chemistry, surprisingly do NOT have identical fingerprints.
Prior to Richard Unger, nearly all palmistry interpretations of fingerprints based their work on Noel Jaquin’s work which correlates types of fingerprints with personality characteristics. The exception is Richard Unger’s LifePrints system which proposes a pattern linked to who we are beyond personality, in other words, our soul psychology.
In this article it is not my intention to compare different systems. It is an attempt to end misconceptions about what LifePrints is exploring and why so many people find it useful on so many different levels.

Fingerprints start forming once the volar pads that contain them are formed, 13 weeks after conception. They are completely formed by 21 weeks.
How can they inform us?
It helps to think of fingerprints as patterns in nature. Just as wind leaves a pattern in sand, and we can study the sand patterns to determine, for example, which direction the wind blew from and how hard, so too our fingerprints are evidence of an energetic force beyond and preceding our body, personality and life experiences.

Australian hand analysts of the future

I’m back in Switzerland after facilitating Australia’s first IIHA 3 day hand analysis intensive course earlier this month.
IIHA pro hand analysis course, professional hand analyst
Left to right: Joanne Dicinoski, Sally Young, me (Jena Griffiths), Shivani Killen, Ann Baker, Mrudula Carpenter, Helen Hutton, Patti Barton, Hedonna Thurgar, Ruth Gale, Jody van Hest. Front: Jo Hayden
Thanks to Patti Barton’s tremendous organizational skills, the course was a great success. We now have 12 hand analysts in Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales that will receive my backing and support as they open their new-found wings and practice their skills to help others find their life purpose and fly through professional hand analysis techniques. I felt deeply honoured to lead such a great class of high powered women from all walks of life. We had a number of counsellors, therapists and healers in the group, as well as graduates, business professionals and artists. Everyone contributed their own unique energy and spirits ran high as a result.

What’s my life purpose? How can I live a more meaningful life?

Much of our anxiety comes from feeling we aren’t doing what we came here to do. We fear we will somehow miss the boat. But please note: you cannot miss the boat because you ARE the boat.
It is the destiny of an acorn to become an oak tree. This is not a luxury. It is an inbuilt compulsion. The oak tree might grow into a big tree or a small one but it will always be an oak. So too, you can’t miss your life purpose. Nor is it a luxury to live it. It is the inbuilt compulsion that drives you. 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.
It might surprise you to hear this: You are already living your purpose with every breath and every thought and every deed. Your life purpose is to dream the dream you are busy dreaming.
So what can you do better?
Can you improve the dream? Sure. Can you wake up in your own dream? This is our ultimate purpose – to become conscious creators of our own dream instead of unconscious creators; to shake ourselves and each other awake so that we can better steer the dream.
It is all about trust and timing – trusting that this is a supportive universe. The water is never deeper than you can stand in. “Life happens for you, not to you”.
How to unlock your potential?
By loving who you are and where you are right now. A baby takes nine months from conception to birth. It wouldn’t serve the baby to speed up the process and take it out of the womb after just two months. Likewise, a butterfly spends the first half of its life being a caterpillar. It wouldn’t serve the caterpillar to try to speed up the process or go into denial about being a caterpillar. To go from A to B the caterpillar needs to go through a complete meltdown. This isn’t a mistake or anything to fear. It is a natural process. We each follow our own unique timeline.
You are exactly wherever you need to be right now.

When we consciously choose how we feel in the moment we see that we can take back the controls of our own life. You begin to see that you are at the hub of everything going on; that you are the creator of your own movie.
How are you meant to shine?
And, what does your life look like when you are not shining?
Deep down you already know these answers. Your fingerprints can really help too because they give you a clear map of your own unique blueprint. Your fingerprints reveal what makes you feel deeply fulfilled. They also reveal your core limiting thought. The very thing that is holding you back. When you can see how this works you have the key to setting yourself free. For more articles like this explore this website and register alongside for updates. For courses or consultations you need to decide if you would like an online or in person experience. For in person, I’ll be in Australia from mid July to mid August.
