Are you an angel helper or a slave?

Some people are built to serve, or help others, to such an extent that they’ll even sacrifice their own well being if doing so furthers a greater cause.

If this is you, you just can’t help yourself. It’s in your blood. And also, surprisingly in your fingerprints.

If you have three or more whorls in your fingerprints you are this type.  You need to learn also to serve yourself.

A good analogy is the emergency drill in air planes.  If you put the oxygen mask on yourself first you’ll be able to help everyone else. But if you try to put it on someone else before yourself you’ll end up with 2 dead bodies.

Sometimes it takes people with whorls on their fingerprints a lifetime to figure this out. The trick is to serve others by living your passion. By doing what really turns you on. Then you’re getting oxygen and you can help others do the same.

Usually one needs to go through a selfish or narcissistic phase en route in order to let go of group thinking and burdensome obligation.

This is a natural path. Smile, relax. You’re born to serve but you’re not a slave.

To find out more about what Richard Unger, in his book LifePrints calls “Earth schools” here’s a brief summary. You can also scroll down to see what a whorl fingerprint looks like.

If you have 3 or more of these, you're an angel helper

    This is cool, I should check my friends’ fingerprints. Now how are these traits determined? I have heard similar things about handwriting analysis and interestingly, it seems to be accurate to a certain extent.

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      It’s something that has been tested over a 30 year period through the International Institute of Hand Analysis.
      Very accurate actually.

    Hey, I’ve checked my ones and they do have more than three whorls. I feel really amazing. I can’t wait to try it on my friends and family.

    I can’t find any swirl on my finger tips, but I really love helping people. It’s give me a different satisfaction that I can’t describe.

    Thanks Jena and first of I’d love to give a “Ummahhh” to call me an angel. It felt really amazing.
    I have about 5 or 6 whorls and do feel good helping others. My grandpa says that a whorl on middle finger shows the person is wise but cross. How true is that?

    Thank You

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      : ) well if the middle finger whorl is on the left hand part of your purpose is being a mentor.
      Right hand, is to do with business.
      5/6 whorls – you dear Susan have both feet in the angel helper camp. Hope you also take care of your own needs.

    I was curious and checked my fingerprints. All my fingerprints have those. But I dont think have the heart to put the oxygen mask for myself first. Is this related to superstitious?

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      This is what happens when you have 3 or more whorls on your finger tips.
      Its really really hard to put the oxygen on yourself first. But this is what yo are here to learn to do…
      Good luck!

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      The key is to know what your life leson is from your fingerprints. You can work it out yourself from UNger’s book Lifeprints or you can just have your fingerprints analysed.

    It sounds like you’re creating problems yourself by trying to solve this issue instead of looking at why their is a problem in the first place

  7. Girish Reply

    I have totally 6 whorls. But honestly I cannot recognize any of my selfless help to others. Perhaps I didnt bother to remember all of them, but of-course I am kind and courteous. I am not bragging. This is so interesting and entices me to do additional research. Thanks Jena.

    I’ve read that people with lots of whorls on their fingers (like me) are pretty self-centered. A palmist also told me that.

    I’ve been interested in dermatoglyphic lately and read a lot of articles about it. I know that I’ve only scratch the surface when it comes to this art. But, this is what I read about whorl fingerprint. It denotes that the person is individualistic and self-centered.

    It seems like there’s 2 schools. The ‘Life Purpose’ school will say people with lots of whorls are meant to be of service to others. While the ‘Personality/temperament’ school will say lots of whorls mean the person is individualistic, self-centered, don’t like for follow rules.

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      selfishness is the shadow side of the same coin. The whorl means you’re trying to get the mixture right in service. Too much or too little?
      The task is to learn balance in service.

    You may have heard of palm reading, but what about toe reading? The shape and size of your toes may just say a lot about you. Seriously! I am not kidding. I remember reading about it in the past. Perhaps we can know more whether we are an angel helper or not from our toes.

  12. Amy Reply

    How interesting! I don’t have those whorls.. but I am tht personality.. is there something else I can look for that might indicate this?


    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      Sure. Fingerprints are to do with your soul contract but on a personality level this might show up in a number of different ways:
      For example, a heartline that sweeps right up to your index finger or a very narrow sensitive hand.

    This totally worked on my mom! And I can see just how selfless she is to others.

  14. James Reply

    i never realised that 3 whorls were so significant, deffinately not to the extent that i am now an angel helper! I’ve always been told that i’m very kind and i now know why…angel exciting 😀

  15. SW Reply

    I have 8 whorls (all except pinky fingers). I am also an individualistic person, independent, love my freedom, perfectionist (but not so much now).. urmmm, used to be highly stubborn but now I’ve mellowed down quite a bit. I look unfriendly, and I speak my mind. I dont care much about what people say about me. I am mostly optimistic and always feel positive about life. Sometimes I feel like an extrovert and there are times I prefer to just shut up and enjoy the inner/outer solitude on my own. I am fine being on my own. I dont like noise. I am kind to animals (esp cats) and cannot stand animal cruelty. I help when I can even when I know I should care more about myself than some strangers. I am not the nicest person out here in the real world. I wish I will get financially rich to the point that I will be able to realize my dream to give back to society by providing short term professional skills to the poor for free (in return for them to pass on/teach the skills to next 5 people). I also wish to provide shelter and food to animals (meow). One day soon, I am sure I will achieve these. 😀

    Altho I must say that sometimes I dont understand why I am so selfish but also kind and easily symphathize too. Is it really the whorl personality type? I always find myself feeling the need to help others as if it in my nature: friends, family, strangers. It is tiring. I like my selfish self. It gives me the strength to be a b*tch and in these moments, I feel… ummm free. Contradicting isnt it?

    Hi there,
    I have 10 whorls. can you tell me what is means if someone is having whorl on both hands?

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      Hi Sidra, 10 whorls is called ‘the lone tree’. Live everything, taste everything, do everything, then come back to service….You can read more about this in Richard Unger’s book ‘Lifeprints’

  18. denis Reply

    Ma’am i have six whorls. On index,middle and ring fingers both right and left mum has ten on all the fingers. And four loops both thumbs and pinky. I would like to know the meaning it conveys.

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      Hi Denis
      You both love to serve others but to be a master of service you also need to learn to serve yourself. So find service that gives you oxygen rather than feel you have to do it.

  19. ashutosh Reply

    hi Jena Griffiths

    i have 9 whorl and 1 loop (left hand little finger) what does it mean???????

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      This is called the “Lone tree on the plain”. You are meant to experience life fully. Taste everything, try everything. Serve yourself and in doing you you eventually serve others.

    10 whorl on my fingers, facing issues in professional life. People jelous about my hard work and knowledge. Spreading rumours and spoiling my peace of mind in my personal life

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      Amu, every thought is a seed and these thoughts can take you to the bottom of the ocean. Don’t worry too much about what other people may be saying or thinking. Instead feel whatever emotion arises in you as a result. WITHOUT the story. This will free you to reclaim your energy and create on a higher level instead of recreating the same storm over and over.

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      I know a wonderful man who has this pattern and he always jokes to me about having 9 fingers for service and 1 for fun. The left little finger is about over or under surrender to a partner/ or the divine. So that’s where the fun and games is about in your life and angel TV for your guides to stay light.

  30. Tenzin Ignyen Reply

    10 out of 10 whorls, Don’t know but I am trying to live my life! Helper? yes certainly, easily available for help, even spend. Bit of a loner too but Love poetry, even write some. Emotionally bit vulnerable, helplessly romantic sometimes. Any comments?

  31. Divya Reply

    I have8 whorls and 2 loops on middle finger of both hands? What it says about me

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      Divya, you are in a service lifetime but need to learn right service (it also feels right for you, gives you oxygen)
      the middle fingers are about value (inner and outer)
      self esteem and value out in the world. integrity, keeping your promises esp to yourself, right work for right pay..

  32. Rommel Reply

    I have 9 whorls. Every finger except the loop on my right hand middle finger. I also have 8 sensitivity pads as well. what does this say about me?

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      Rommel, issues for you, life themes are about responsibility/irresponsibility theme and responsibility to yourself rather than over-serving..

      sensitivity pads, tactile sensitivity, feeling far more than others…
