Whenever you are feeling self critical or helpless or small or stuck, here’s a way to quickly shift your perception about yourself or your situation using your hands.
Put your hands out in front of you as if you are holding a weight in each hand.
Now imagine that in one hand you are holding whatever you are currently feeling about yourself or your reality
and in the other hand hold a larger view of who you really are (part of the Divine mystery).
Then say to yourself:
On the one hand I feel ….
on the other hand I am ….. (the opposite of what you feel or something far more expansive.)
Always use “I feel…” for limited thoughts about yourself (as feelings are momentary) and “I am.…” for the expansive version.
In other words, instead of saying “I am sad”
” On the one hand I feel sad ” …
Instead of I am broken
On the one hand I feel broken
on the other hand I am unbreakable.
On the one hand I feel helpless
on the other hand I know that I am powerful beyond measure.
Here’s an excellent discussion with Jungian Analyst and author James Hollis, PhD, speaking with Banyen’s podcast host Ross McKeachie on the themes explored in his book, ‘Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Times of Change’.
I had an interesting conversation a few days ago with two deeply thoughtful podcasters from New York, Jeremiah Glazer and Celine Foster
on the podcast “As woo woo as you want”. How hands fit into the grander scheme of things.
What hand analysis is, and the many ways it reveals the poetry of our lives.
Comment from a friend sums it up:
“Lovely to hear you converse in depth on the connectivity of palmistry and the sculpture of personality models, life journeys & patterns, spiritual healing, destiny & its new doors, universal truths, etc.”
Think of your hands as mirrors reflecting your depth and beauty and also where you might be getting in your own way. Hands speak eloquently and precisely about whatever it is you need to address. For example, sometimes we get stuck in a loop of negative thinking. Our hands are immensely useful in this regard because some of these repetitive loops are played so often that they eventually show up as a line formation on your palm. (Neurons that fire together wire together?) When this happens, hands help us get out of this loop by increasing our “response-ablity”. We see the line formation, connect the dots backwards and then next time the pattern runs we’re be able to see it, self reflect, then pause, and hopefully make a choice to respond consciously rather than simply react in a knee jerk way. Each time we do this we consciously break the loop and this empowers us, reminding us again and again we have a choice here.
How can lines in the hand indicate patterns of negative thinking ….and what to do?
Beyond the three major lines on your hands there are many other finer lines running vertically towards the fingers and others running horizontally across the palm. These lines change quite a bit over time. They Click here to read more …
The length of a person’s headline is thought to represent the amount of time a person spends thinking before making a decision. Of the three major lines on a person’s hand, the headline is the one in the middle. It’s important to note that overall length of the headline is NOT indicative of how intelligent a person is. Rather, see it as the “span” of this particular line. In other words, does this person need or use a long span or a short span of time to think before deciding?
A few months ago I was looking for examples of very short head lines for my new hand analysis foundation series and noticed that very short headlines are quite rare and extremely hard to find. I only found two good examples in about 15 000 hand prints. Then, by chance, I watched an interview with Peter Diamadis, co-founder of singularity university, talking to Ray Kurzweil, futurist, leading inventor who is considered to be one of the most intelligent people on the planet. Ray, as Google AI Director, is now also a key player in the Google/Alphabet nest of start ups and entrepreneurial endeavors.
During the interview, Ray mentioned his capacity to make extremely quick decisions. I noticed that Ray certainly does have a short head line and, as he recognizes and even prides himself for this capacity, I took the Click here to read more …
Recently I changed to a securer internet server and in the process a whole bunch of links no longer work. This is still being fixed and will take another week or so.
In the meantime, you can still access the older page you are looking for simply by removing
/HAO-WP/ from the link name as this code gets added into the middle of each link at the moment.
Alternatively, use the search function to find the topic that most interests you.
Whatever your world view is, whether you believe in deep spirituality or neuroscience, “flow” research or epigenetics, the principles governing your life remain the same.
And your fingerprints still hold a key to knowing your deepest calling and understanding how to navigate life’s highs and lows.
It’s Palm Sunday today and with lockdown all around us, now is the perfect time to photograph your palms and fingerprints and ask all family members to do the same. Your parents and grand parents, siblings, cousins and children. Life happens and we never know how long we have. Let’s collect all our hand prints or palm photos for future generations. Think of each palm as a poem about the owner that can be interpreted in many different ways. It tells you a lot about your ancestors and habitual ways of thinking that may have got wired into you as a survival pattern.
Life passes quickly. You never know how long each of us has. I recommend you record hand prints of yourself and all your family members over the holiday season, or whenever you next get together. Store these records somewhere safe. They could be valuable one day, especially to future generations. I really wish I had hand prints of my grand parents, great grandparents and ancestral lineage…Each hand print is like a poem about the person, the oldest literature in the world, with lots of possible interpretations, providing great insight into family patterns and motivations.
Your hand prints shows the wiring of your brain and your many personality archetypes. Your fingerprints are energetic imprints, revealing even deeper core drives and motivations.
How to record prints for future generations
You can make hand and fingerprints of friends and family very inexpensively using lipstick or boot polish. If you live in a hot country, put the lipstick in the fridge for half an hour before using. For better results use artist’s block ink and a roller or professional forensic ink sheets.
This is a good way to record hand shape and finger length which reveals personality characteristics such as temperament. For fingerprints (life purpose) its easiest to take photographs. Click here to read more …
Several years ago I went to visit the home and healing cave of Emma Kunz. Emma was a famous healer and visionary artist who lived just north of Zürich in Switzerland (1892-1963.)
The thing I found most astonishing about Emma wasn’t so much her healing powers but the fact that she had absolutely no books in her house (except one on healing plants), yet somehow she was incredibly knowledgeable, up-to-date and informed. I thought this could perhaps be explained by the constant stream of visitors she had, but then I heard this:
Once, a couple came to visit Emma and brought a book as a gift. At the end of the visit, Emma turned to the man and said, ‘I’ve been thinking about this book you brought me. It’s not me who needs to read it but you, and the information you need is on page 25!!’
How’s that for being connected with inner guidance! We all have gut instinct in extreme danger, but we’re not all tuned in to our own inner voice all the time the way Emma was. Or we are, but we don’t trust it. Perhaps because we are taught from birth that everyone else knows better than we do what we need. So we constantly look for solutions outside of ourselves, instead of accessing or trusting in our own inner knowing.
