“The lines are poetic” says Richard Unger “and breaks are really no big deal.”
From my perspective, the hand or palms, are a mirror of the psyche and, because they are so visible and ever present, they can be used to either beat oneself up (by believing misinformation) for one can use hands for contemplation and self awareness or personal growth and strengths discovery. They enable one to ask, “In what way am I limiting myself ?” For example, why am I torturing myself with this particular destructive belief?
Breaks in the life line is one hot spot where too many people are getting hammered by believing nonsense regarding longevity. This is an unfounded rumor and dangerous if you waste many hours thinking and worrying about it. If someone plants any fearful belief in your mind, cancel the thought immediately. Bless them and walk away. DO NOT give your creative power away.
“Each hand is a poem” says Richard Unger, author of LifePrints who has read over 60 000 pairs of hands. Like a poem, the meaning is not always obvious. In order to help people stop torturing themselves and others with the belief that length of life line is predictive, I invited Richard Unger to share his interpretation on breaks in the life lines and/or the heart line during an online class. We’ve been holding these classes weekly for 6 years for students all around the globe and because this was such an important topic I decided to make the 2 classes on this topic freely accessible to the public.
It’s a one and a half hour discussion.
In summary, the life line is NOT linked to longevity.
We need to dispel this myth once and for all. Many people live long happy lives with broken lines or even no lifeline ta all!!
Several hand analysts and also palmists from other schools of thought were invited to participate in this discussion but unfortunately no one with a totally different perspective showed up to discuss their views.
Also discussed during these classes
In these video classes another topic discussed was the “3 for 2” marker. This is a broken life line that indicates that work (or rather a special calling) is more important than family to fully ground or anchor the person. (In other words the traditional roles of the two lines (family and career) is confused. We also discussed the notion that a break on any of the major lines can be seen as a break in a circuit that, like an electrical switch, can be either on or off. This is useful information to know.
We also discussed dots on the life line which (as a chronic stress indicator related to family issues) – a sign that you need to start paying attention to whatever is causing this stress. Particularly related to family issues.
This is what dots on this line look like.
Also discussed were Simian lines and breaks in the heart line.
Right at the end of the discussion we looked at a hand with virtually no life line, which Richard considers another version of “line confusion”. In other words, not a big deal provided one is aware of one’s own internal wiring.
The Simian line ( single palmar crease) (2 instead of 3 lines) was also mentioned in this discussion as being similar in effect to the “3 for 2” marker, with respect to fanaticism or needing a focus or mission or special calling. The difference being in the Simian this is not necessarily linked to career.
