“The opposite of talking isn’t listening. The opposite of talking is waiting.” Fran Leibovitz
Hold your hands up in front of you with the fingers relaxed. Now look at your fingers, particularly the little finger.
Is it standing up straight, supported by the palm underneath it? Or is it standing slightly apart from your other fingers, perhaps even so far apart that it looks as if it is toppling off the edge of a cliff?
The little finger, also called the Mercury finger, is all about communication.
When the little finger starts to move off on its own, this is sometimes interpreted as indicating feeling isolated, or relationship difficulties or independence of thought. But what it really means is an unwillingness to listen to others or take in new information beyond one’s own preconceived ideas. This is the root cause behind feeling isolated or having relationship problems, and also the downside of having a fixed opinion.
According to spiritual teacher Thomas Huebl, there are 2 types of listening: The masculine principle (focus) and the feminine principle (taking the other in). Allowing the other person and their idea’s to land in you and being able to feel and respond them fully.
When the pinkie finger goes off kilter this indicates that the feminine side of one’s listening capacity needs rehabilitation.
This could apply to not listening to other people or your own inner voice.

I’ll be in London in a few weeks at the College of Psychic Studies to offer a talk and also a workshop teaching people how to decode life purpose from fingerprints.
If you are in the area come and join us at the College.
This talk will give you an opportunity to lift the veils and see beyond the illusion of any limiting thoughts underpinning current beliefs of who you are or what may or may not have happened in the past. We explore four steps to unlocking your purpose including principles you can start applying right away.
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 Click here to read more …
Monika Hauser and Nina Nanz have spent the last few months exploring how they can best bring the Earth School series with Richard Unger and Jena Griffiths to the German speaking community.
The Life Purpose calls that took place in English are now available in German.
Monika and Nina are dedicated to keeping the content and finer nuances of our classes true to the original.

I like to use the imagery of a diver descending deeper and deeper in the ocean
to explain how we can change everything going on in our lives, and in the world, by shifting your level of consciousness (your field of frequency).
November, Friday 13th, I gave a 5 minute talking at Ignite Zurich to explain how this works.
At the same moment, while this event was taking place, not very far away, Paris was under attack.
I had planned to create a longer version of this talk and post it here, but instead I have been exploring what each of us can do to help heal the pain in the world, based on these principles.
You can read my notes and related articles I published here Pain in the world – how you can help
as well as what this has to do with how to shift levels of consciousness individually and collectively. (Thinking like a diver) These notes explain the metaphysical principles behind this talk and why it is so important that we each work on ourselves now more than ever if we would like to see radical change in the world.
I feel deeply honored to be able to invite you to join me in Findhorn, Scotland, one of the Earth’s sacred places and possibly the best place in the world to do deep inner work. Findhorn’s Susan Miles and I have created a brand new Life Purpose workshop specially for Findhorn, starting May 7 2016 (for 7 days).
During this workshop we will uncover how we are meant to shine and manifest our divinity by learning to see beyond the illusion of daily circumstance.
Within the apparent duality of our incarnation, we will explore the yin and the yang of life purpose and life lesson. We will learn how to use the inherent polarities in life as a mindfulness tool to more consciously give expression to the soul journey each one of us is here to express.
This will be made possible by exploring our unique blueprint – the soul maps in our fingerprints and the mythological archetypes in our personalities.
At the end of the week we each know how to fully inhabit our purpose and we each take home our unique energy management and soul tracking programme.
This will be my first workshop at Findhorn. Susan has been focalising workshops at the Foundation since 1994. If what you have read here resonates deeply, we would love to have you with us.
As hard as this may be to believe, you can’t not live your live purpose. You are always living it in one form or another. Your purpose is what makes you “you”. Utterly unique. Even when you feel off purpose you are still living your life purpose, albeit on another level. Experience in the seemingly opposite direction is what is required for your purpose to blossom.
There are numerous ways to make sense of this. One way is to use an oak tree analogy: usually all we see is the huge sturdy tree, but as soon as you start wondering, how does it get to be so big, strong and sturdy? Only then do you become aware of its hidden “alter ego”: the massive, unseen “taken for granted” root structure deep underground. This part is often far bigger than the visible part. You can’t have the one without the other. So too with your purpose.
Similarly, there’s the lotus flower analogy: without the mud that it grows in there would be no blossom.
Another analogy is to think of your lifetime as a tapestry: you can’t create a pattern without creating the reverse pattern on the other side. This is the messy underbelly where all the work gets done, knots tied, threads backtracked, seeming errors made yet it all make perfect sense when you look at the beautiful pattern on the upper side…
Each of these analogies elegantly explains how experience is required and how opposites apply.
“Every hand has a Delicious Dilemma. Find it and you are at the core of your reading.” – Richard Unger
Learning to decipher the language of hands is like learning any language.
We can figure out a lot intuitively when we know the meaning of some words and if we make constant attempts to keep practicing and get feedback. However we can speed up our fluency and really master the language when we actively learn the grammar.
Here’s an example from personal experience. About 15 years ago, when I first started learning German, I made the mistake of learning a large vocabulary of nouns without learning the associated article (die, der, das) because English has only one article, namely “the”, I didn’t think it was that important.
Result: I made mastery of the language an impossible task. German is incredibly precise. I couldn’t figure out how mother tongue German speakers instinctively knew which article to use. It was only when I learnt the Swiss nickname for a toy doll which is “Babelli” and then heard the kids saying s’Babelli I realized that, even in the colloquial dialects, Swiss kids were always learning the article “das” shortened to “s’-” as part of the word. To learn one without the other (like I did) is like learning only half of each word. Naturally you are never going to be fluent no matter how huge your vocabulary.
