Why preserve your hand prints for future generations?
There are literally thousands of different schools of thought about what palm creases and dermatoglyphics (fingerprints) mean and many of these theories haven’t yet been translated into English. The range of perspective is vast. Some people try to predict the future, others take a more modern approach and attempt to realign personality traits with a deeper calling. Some people think these lines mean nothing at all. I think the lines on our hands are influenced by the electromagnetic field in and around our body and leave clues about the wiring of our brains. Lines on the palm seem to reveal an intricate electric circuit that can be influenced by thought and emotion. This is backed up by the known fact that the lines on a person’s hands change instantly if the person is subjected to electroshock treatment. But what is really needed is solid research, involving large groups of people from all walks of life over multiple generations. Research is often misleading because it doesn’t explore the very essence of what hands reveal. Any serious research in this field needs to include phenomenological data (subjective experience) because the hand seems to respond to thought.
After attending a family constellations workshop last year with Jill Purce I spent months digging up all my ancestors, tracking their lives and trying to understand how the past still impacts on the present. I wanted to know who my ancestors were, what they believed, what troubled them, what traumas or wars were they involved in and in what way their experiences and memories are still alive within us. I wished to see more photographs and read their journals. Also I really wished someone in those days had made their hand prints. Because, as far as I can see, hands say more about a person and what’s really going on in the inside than any portrait could possibly capture.
This is just one of the reasons why we need to preserve our hand prints for future generations. Another reason is scientific data. We need to research more fully how a person’s thought patterns and their trials and tribulations show up in their hands and also to what extent do these events and or repetitive or habitual thought patterns influence the following generations’ hands and fingerprints. The research can’t be done until the data, particularly phenomenological data, is collected.
I personally think that hands are the psychology of the future. What is required now is the hard science. Even if we don’t yet fully know or agree what each line means, or even if you think lines don’t mean anything at all, you can still start saving your family’s hand prints privately for future generations. You can help make sure that your children and even great great great grandchildren do have your hand prints on file. And you can keep a journal and make sure that survives you too. What needs to be recorded for this research to take place is a record of what you are thinking and experiencing, including your subjective experiences.
You can go one step further with this project if you wish, and have your prints and life story preserved over time in database to help future scientists track family patterns. This will one day be a massive, searchable data base of hand prints and fingerprints that are also linked to solid facts about the person’s life as well as subjective experience and repetitive or habitual thoughts. Life events, career, hobbies, personality traits, preferences, health issues, family history and repetitive thinking could then be cross referenced against hand markers and fingerprint patterns.
This is the beginning of a long term project that will continue beyond our lives. Think if it as sweetening the soil for future generations.
You can participate on many levels.
Here are some of the ways you can start contributing:
1. Make your hand prints and your family’s prints and preserve them for future generations. Put the originals in your will. Also keep all personal journals particularly about trauma or upsets. You could save your descendants a huge amount of labor hunting for facts by doing so. Store this information in a place where it will survive beyond your life time and your children’s life times.
This first step is already a huge gift to future generations.
Contact me if your don’t have a place and I’ll store them for you.

What to do with hand prints of deceased people?
Please do not throw out old hand prints. Instead you can add them to a growing data base for research purposes located on handsuniversity.org or mail them to me for inclusion in the data base.
A hundred years ago relatively few people in the world had photos of themselves, let alone their grandparents or great grandparents. Let’s not make the same mistake with hand prints. Your hands prints are a love poem about you, written by your psyche. Like photographs, they need to be preserved for future generations.

How to order a hand printing kit
If you wish to dive deeper into the interpretation of your family’s fingerprints, order high quality ink sheets to make your family’s hand prints and at the same time get a computer generated report on what each person’s fingerprints reveal about their life purpose and life lesson. The cost is $50 per person and a hand printing kit will be sent to you for each person.
