The gap between your headline and your lifeline show how independent you are in your thinking from the group(s) you belong to. This includes family.
Usually the headline (your thinking style) and the life line (family line) are connected a little way before they part directions.
But sometimes this connection is much longer than normal. And sometimes these two lines don’t connect at all.
Let’s look at what this looks like first and then what it means.
I’ve marked the head line in blue and the life line in purple.
Here’s an example of an average length connection. They just meet briefly at the edge of the palm or they run together for a short length.
Below an example of where the head line is totally independent, and doesn’t touch the life line at all.
This is called a dependent thinker. The person thinks like the group they are part of. Tradition, and being in alignment with family, and what the group thinks is important.
Now look at your own hands.
Which of the three above are your hands similar to?
When the lines are separate that shows you’re an independent thinker, not much influenced by “group think” or traditions or family.
When the lines run together for a long time this indicates that your style of thinking is more traditional and family orientated. Group interdependency is important
Now have a look at the hand prints below.
Note how long the head lines are joined in these hands and the huge bubbles that have formed between them. (Marked in red.)
Bubbles mean trouble.
So this indicates lots of trouble/family stuff going on in a hand where family is really really important.
What to do? This is a good time to recommend Phyllis Krystal’s “Cutting ties that bind” exercises.
But what if family stuff is an even bigger deal than this?
What you are exploring family issues on a grander scale – as your overall life theme?
Life purpose or life lesson.
That’s when it shows up in your fingerprints.
