It is all about managing your energy – mindfulness. This is the great gift of fingerprints.

What is Life Purpose Hand Analysis?

LifePrints© Hand Analysis is a relatively new psychometric tool, a way of understanding yourself and unlocking your life purpose, by exploring the energetic maps embedded in your fingerprints and hands. The system was developed by Richard Unger decades ago. Unger’s breakthrough was in seeing the hands as an overlay of two totally different maps: an energetic map indicating core drives (fingerprints and dermatoglyphs in palm) which he calls “soul pschology” and a dynamic personality map (hand shape and other indicators that change over time). This second map he calls “personality psycholgy”. All other hand systems and psychometric tests attempt to merge these two very different maps into one. The beauty of Richard’s Lifeprints® system is that one can very quickly pin point core themes related to life purpose and deep menaing. The Lifeprints® system of hand and fingerprint analysis is compatible with most belief systems.

Jena Griffiths uses the Lifeprints® system if hand analysis as a starting point to offer you a unique insight into your life.
