The lines are poetic says Richard Unger and breaks are really no big deal.
From my perspective, the hand or palm, is a precise mirror of the psyche and, because it is so visible and ever present, it can be used to either beat oneself up (by believing misinformation) for one can use hands for contemplation and self discovery. It enables one to ask, “It what way am I limiting myself ?” For example, why am I torturing myself with destructive beliefs?.
Breaks in the life line is one area where too many people are getting hammered by believing nonsense. It someone sows a fearful thought 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.
This was a fascinating call and, because it is such an important subject for so many people in the world with these markers, I’ve decided to make this call freely accessible to the public.
It’s a long call to sit through
In summary, the life line is NOT linked to longevity.
Many people live long happy lives with broken lines or even no lifeline.
I invited several hand analysts and also palmists from other schools of thought to participate in this discussion but unfortunately no one with a totally different perspective showed up to participate in this call.
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.
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.
