The hand is the visible part of the brain. Color, shape and line formations can and do change over time. They can also change instantly by responding to thoughts and feelings (color changes) or as old habitual thinking patterns are removed or personality patterns rewired (lines and shape change).
What doesn’t change is your fingerprints. These can be thought of as your “soul map” or what Richard Unger calls your “LifePrints” (in his book by that name). From this perspective, you are a spirit having a human experience. Your fingerprints, decoded using this system, reveal life purpose and life lesson.
However, after working with Richard’s system for over a decade and trying to explain how this works to thousands of people, and how to use this information in a practical and long term way, and teaching this system worldwide, this is what I find:
Your fingerprints reveal your mental programming (the “illusion” ) you are running in order to have a human life. The problem is, you can’t fix a program by running it. Essentially, there is nothing to fix. The task required is not fixing or changing but self awareness and self mastery.
You “fix” yourself by becoming aware of the fact that you are running a program and then, through mindfulness and self compassion, by figuring out how to master your own internal programming.
The irony is, even though we each have a unique purpose, the path to self mastery is the same for each of us. Namely, through developing “no mind”. Getting out of our own way and allowing “spaciousness” so that the divine can express though us using our unique persona, abilities and circumstances. The “program” is the mechanism that creates mind (generating the yang/doing side of us) in order for us to have experiences and adventures that lead us to preparing or developing our personality for the role envisioned/divinely inspired. The task is to learn to become aware of our own program without running it. (This is achieved through mindfulness.)
The danger, as always, is that we are co-creators, and thoughts are creative. What you focus on expands. Therefore, what you perceive as a flaw that needs fixing (your life lesson) could grow or become more of an issue simply because you are holding your focus there instead of simply observing it in the corner of your eye with self compassion. (While staying focused on whatever it is you actually wish to achieve.) Learning how to do this is called “soul tracking” and one can take advanced classes in this art.
Similarly with your “life purpose”. The more you chase it, the more elusive it becomes.
Why is that?
Because you can’t become what you already are. It is firstly a state of consciousness, of being and trusting and knowing and allowing your true nature to unfold; of making space for the divine to express through you in your unique manner, rather than trying to do it all on your own. It takes some of us a lifetime to surrender to our own true nature.
The work I try to bring through is to help people firstly to know and recognize themselves for who they really are, and then to speed up the process of living who they truly are, through daily re-calibration techniques so that they stay and serve as themselves consciously and joyfully rather than unconsciously and sadly. I will be offering a workshop on this in Findhorn this May.
