What Makes an Exceptional Teacher?

When looking for a teacher in the professional healing arts, and specifically hand analysis, there are many aspects to take into consideration.  High quality teachers have an extensive knowledge of the subject matter, curriculum and standards, a caring attitude, and a love of learning; experience facilitating groups of individuals and expectations, a desire to make a difference in the lives of students, and those lives who the student will touch.

- Exceptional teachers set high expectations for all students while meeting each student where she is emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.

- Exceptional teachers have clear, written-out objectives for each class and/or program. With integrity, they follow through with commitments. Students do better when they have a clear idea what to expect and receive what is expected.

- Exceptional teachers are prepared and organized. They are in their classrooms (and tele-calls) early and ready to teach. They offer homework assignments and hands-on practice plans to build subject knowledge.

- Exceptional teachers help students see differently. Effective teachers use intuition, scientific facts (reliable and repeatable data) while also asking “why” questions. Students learn better when they are challenged to look at all sides of the subject matter and are given plenty of time to ask and answer questions.

- Exceptional teachers communicate effectively, engage all students and treat each student with dignity and respect.

- Exceptional teachers form strong heart-centered relationships with their students and show that they care. They are warm, enthusiastic, considerate and caring. Students feel supported when their teachers are available to them during and outside of scheduled class time.

- Exceptional teachers are masters of their subject and spend time continuing to gain knowledge in their field of expertise. They present the material with enthusiasm and instill hunger in their students to study and practice.

- Exceptional teachers help students build confidence through praise, appropriate correction, and individualized guidance.

- Exceptional teachers pursue and exhibit life experience to support their curriculum and overall teaching objectives.

- Exceptional teachers give the student cause to be both fulfilled and delighted about the learning institution or academy where they are or have been taught.

- Exceptional teachers gratefully acknowledge their sources of content and pay homage to their revered teachers and mentors.

Kay Packard interviews Vernon Mahabal (2006)

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Following is an interview I did with world famous Palmist and author, Vernon Mahabal just over seven years ago. We just re-reviewed his sage wisdom, and are delighted to share it with you.

Kay and Vernon

Kay and Vernon

After Vernon Mahabal read my hands in Los Angeles on Nov. 6, 2006, I asked to interview him for our (IIHA) newsletter. He gladly accepted. Vernon spoke at the IIHA Conference in 2006 in Tiburon. He is the founder and director of the Palmistry Institute. In 1979 he began formal training in Vedic (Eastern) cosmology, which took him to India many times. He combines Western astrological palmistry with Chinese elemental hand analysis. He also continues new research, particularly within the field of fingerprints. Vernon has read thousands of hands, given hundreds of lectures and trained hundreds of students to read hands. For more info visit www.palmistryinstitute.com

Vernon, please tell me again how you started reading hands in New York

In 1985 or 86 I saw a reader on street. His name was Patrick Geoffrois. He looked like a magician. I was on a spiritual path and I stayed with him for 5 years on St. Marks.

There is so much information in the hands – I came at it as a skeptic, but was so intrigued with the mystical arts. Patrick taught the entire western system of the Astrological palmistry system. I read peoples hands on the subway while sitting in one spot. People are easy to meet in NY. They tend to be more philosophical and open. 

I was inclined toward palmistry and Patrick was my catalyst. I didn’t pick it. Palmistry picked me. As a career, it fell into my lap. People encouraged me to make this my career

What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?

Being about to tell people what their life purpose is… their talents and abilities. Yes, this is what I am, aside from how society wants me to be.  Life purpose is clearly written onto a person’s hands. They know it instinctually, but are misaligned by society, leaders.. things that have taken a person away from their life path. They have an ah-ha factor.  Our society is based on economical development and sense gratification, which takes them away from who they really are.  In my work, I’ve had a number of people who are sophisticated in a number of ways, and when I give them a reading I like to focus on a specific areas. What’s in the hand is an intrinsic part of their subconscious. My job is to tell people the steps to get ‘there’ (to their life purpose). Put their train on the correct path. Difficulties are easier to deal with when living on purpose. Rarely, if ever, does someone not get it. The hand is an astrological road map that clearly delineates the between the last and this lifetime.

What advice can you give hand-analysts-in-training? 

Become your own researcher. Its necessary/imperative to take a teacher, to be at the feet of a legitimate palmist, and by way of serving them, hearing from them, being in their presence you’ll learn from them. Investigate your science thoroughly. Know why the teacher is doing it. It takes about 7 years to get a handle on what palmistry is all about and feel confident in it. It’s important to learn western and ancient palmistry. Western is very good at letting a person know about psychology, character, and talents. Eastern palmistry (sidereal) is excellent for letting people know talents, potentials as well, but is excellent for predictions. Vedic palmistry is unsurpassed for its ability for predictions. Predictions could include career changes, relationships beginnings/endings, and changes in geography. Good to study both systems.

Be a researcher of the hand. Take experiences in life and combine them with palmistry skills and skills should reflect their life. Palmists should be familiar with what went on before, other important palmists and who contributed what and when. Don’t be satisfied with one answer. Question everything!

Put yourself into your work. Put your whole being into the work… whole soul and self.  Palmistry is a science and an art.  It becomes your art.

Do you have a bad experience you can share to help others avoid the same mistake? 

When I first started I was amazed when I went to physic fairs where palmists didn’t know their science. A lot of palmists claimed to be palmists but were really just a parrot telling people what a book or other palmists have said, not from their own research.  I’ve met palmists who said they were physic but they had not database to support them. Psychic Intuition is a big part of palmistry, but imperative to have a well stocked astrological background.  Otherwise, there are no checks and balances to support their reading.  I’ve modeled myself after sophisticated astrologers who monitor each other and are professional. They are way ahead of the game because they formed associations and meet as groups. They have magazines. They’ve made their art genuine. We haven’t done much to have conferences and police ourselves. Astrologers present themselves with credibility.  There is no real credibility with Sea-side palmists. The public is becoming more discriminate.  The public will mirror our becoming more credible and professional.

We need to form our own organizations, coach each other, and meet over coffee as an association/community of palmist’s.  The public takes astrology more seriously. 

What is your favorite part of reading hands? 

This is the most fascinating thing I do in a day.  I am deciphering a Rosetta stone – seeing the symbols and configurations is fascinating to put together and then to get to the heart of the person.  This is a personalization of the spiritual being.  It’s like mixing a cake to get to the core and what they are here for.  Need a conscious entity to add and subtract from the reading.  Most intriguing thing in a day is reading hands… and the hieroglyphics. 

Goal is to elevate consciousness of that person in this life and their next.  When they come to a higher mode they’ll be happen.

How did you come to the Life Purpose and Life Lesson teaching? 

I had been working on it 1992 “Body Signs” (Hillion) which had info about palmistry. Didn’t agree with things in palmistry section.  Look at fingerprints as a group, not as individually.  I had thought that for 2 or 3 years.  Now I had pages and pages of research.   In 1994 I started writing notes.  I met Richard’s students, Eric, and we’d meet in New York and hold palmistry circles with other palmists.  Eric read my fingerprints.  Your life purpose and life lesson is ‘this’.  How long have you been doing this?  About a year – said Eric.  Eric told me about Richard.  I called Richard the next day.  We contacted each other by phone a lot.  I then moved to the San Francisco East bay in 1996/97 then would see Richard and go his grads classes.  We have many similarities – 95%, but have some differences.  See the tented arch differently.  He was ahead of me in the psychological area.  He’s helped me fill in some of my blank spots.  I hope I’ve helped him fill in some of his.

Noel Joaquin (1940s) referenced fingerprints but I didn’t necessarily agree. Richard’s and my systems don’t accept Joaquin but Joaquin should be recognized.  My system is more career oriented and Richard is more about the physiological aspects but very similar.  I value his friendship, his expertise. He’s contributed MUCH to hand analysis. Seasoned, professional. Looking for the day there will be hundreds of people like Richard, teaching.  The way we get our info is different than each other. Info was in the ether. I’m just an instrument. 

Where do you see yourself in 5 & 10 years reading hands?

I want to make reading hands more accessible without commercializing it. It is truth and will come out. Present it in a way to take this science more seriously. The ancient’s adored it and held it in reverence. Doing more lectures, reading, make more people aware of it.

Do you have anything else to share? 

Continue to build up the reputation of Palmistry for the public.  Hold up regard for palmistry like astrology.

We should create our own foundations, federations, establishing sisterhood/brother hoods.  You become like those who you associate with. Associate with others who are serious about this path, and that will inspire others.  If you go to India, Astrologers look at the hands before making a prediction and vice versa. Astrology and Palmistry are like a brother and sister. By the way, Mountain News has a poor view of Palmistry because of the practitioners who haven’t taken this science seriously.

Relationship symbols, stories and strategies, Part II

The Heart Line – Relationship symbols, stories and strategies Part II

by Kay Packard 

“The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart.” Rumi

A relationship works best when you attend to the beauty of the relationship. You can deepen your understanding of your own and someone else’s essential love style by deciphering one line in the hand—the Heart Line. In Part I of The Heart Line, I covered the Hermit Heart Line. Today, lets identify the Passionate and the Big Heart Heart Lines and understand the non-negotiable needs they reveal in relationship.

Four Steps to Analyzing the Heart Line

Step 1. Locate the Heart Line carved in your hands.

Step 2. Starting on the outside edge of the palm, follow the line and note in which section of the imaginary quadrant your Heart Line ends.

Step 3. Read the associated descriptions.

Heart Line Styles

Identification: The Heart Line starts on the outer edge of the palm under the pinkie finger and runs horizontally across the palm. The line may be straight or curved and long or short. It usually ends somewhere beneath the middle or index finger. Any Heart Line style is possible on a hand. You may also find a different Heart Line on each hand.

Heart Line Shapes

The shape of the Heart Line indicates preferred characteristics when relating to others and corresponds to sections in an imaginary quadrant, as we will see in Fig. 1. Curvy lines belong to expressive people who typically show their feelings easily. The Big Heart and the Passionate types have curvy lines. They exhibit their feelings more than those with flat or straight Heart Lines. Straight lines belong to people who are more reserved. They present their feelings reluctantly. The Hermit and the Rational Romantic types have flat Heart Lines. They are less likely to display their emotions outwardly.

The Heart Line Quadrant

As illustrated in Part I, the imaginary quadrant has four sections (see fig. 1 below). To position the quadrant, on one hand at a time, draw an imaginary line straight down between the index and middle finger. Next draw an imaginary horizontal line across the vertical line about half an inch from base of fingers. Now, determine which section your Heart Line ends. 

AAHA Heart Line Types

 Fig. 1 Assigned names depending on section of the quadrant where the Heart Line terminates

Names are assigned to the Heart Line type depending on which section the Heart Line ends. Look to see in which section of the quadrant your Heart Line ends on both hands.

The Passionate

Passionate Heart

 Fig. 2 The Passionate Heart

The Passionate Heart Line curves up toward the middle finger (Fig. 2). It touches the top of the palm and ends in the upper right section of the quadrant under the middle finger. The dotted arrow shows a piece of the Heart Line but it is not considered when determining the termination point of this Heart Line.

If you are the Passionate Heart, you are likely enthusiastic, expressive and even flirtatious. You have the charisma to be the life of the party. Your natural design is like the campfire, attracting people to warmth. It’s crucial for you to express your wants, even when others might not seem to appreciate your directness. You tend to be happiest, when you do expose your desires. Your biggest challenge is being stuck with people you consider boring. You can be so intense that when you feel something passionately, it shows. A word of caution though—that little campfire can turn into a forest fire if its not contained. I remind the Passionate Heart to display his or her wildest passions and be considerate of the needs of others. At your best you bring an excitement and charisma to the scene. Your challenge is to remember the emotional needs of others.

Affirm: I am claiming my desires and expressing my passion with grace and consideration.

The Big Heart 

Big Heart Line

 Fig. 3 The Big Heart section of the quadrant

 The Big Heart curves up toward the index finger. It touches the top of the palm and ends in the upper section of the quadrant under the index finger or closer to the index finger than the middle finger (In Fig. 2 see the arrow between the index and middle fingers).

If you are the Big Heart, you feel emotions keenly and are warmhearted, caring and nurturing of others. You like connecting with other people and animals. Your favorite song might be All You Need is Love by the Beatles. My friend Kit calls the owner of this line “The Sweet Heart.” Your natural design is like a water droplet that joins the pool at the base of a waterfall. Seeing others bond during a special gathering warms your heart. Your feelings are hurt if people suddenly disconnect with you or you witness detachment and conflict between loved ones. Your biggest challenge is to nurture yourself along with others and not fall victim to emotional sell-out. If, in your view, someone disconnects from you abruptly, you might take it personally and become overly critical of yourself, blaming yourself (or another) for the separation. I remind the Big Heart to look at the truth of the change or separation in the relationship to help you accept yourself and all your feelings in all stages of the relationship. At your best you help people feel loved and cared for while also spending some time alone nurturing yourself. On a bad day, you can easily lose yourself in the drama of others and feel like a victim.

Affirm: I am the love I seek and long to embody.

No Heart Line is better than another. What’s important is to register and claim your natural love style. I’ve seen troubles brew when someone thinks he or she should behave like a snail when really he or she is a gazelle.

Watch for Part III coming next – The Rational Romantic and a few other variations.

The Protected Heart

Jailed Heart Illustration The Protected Heart

 By Kay Packard

Many of us have learned to protect our hearts from hurt. There is one particular configuration of the Heart Line that illustrates a serious protector of the heart. I’d like to share another excerpt from my upcoming book, Your Life is in Your Hands, in the spirit of deep inner awareness and personal empowerment.

Sometimes you’ll find extra lines running in parallel along the main Heart Line. See Fig. 1, below, with the arrow pointing to the formation on the Heart Line. Additional horizontal lines, bordering the Heart Line show a determination to protect the heart, like an invisible suit of armor. If you see this configuration in either or both of your hands, you have a deep-seated need to keep your heart safe from being hurt. You may find yourself preserving the silent belief that potential pain is to be avoided at all cost. Extra parallel lines act as a shield and represent available and dependable reinforcement. 

AAHA Heart Line Armor

Fig. 1 Heart Line Armor

If you don’t own this design, but wish to better understand a friend who does, imagine a time in your life when your heart was shattered. Can you imagine being at the altar preparing to be married to the love of your life and your fiancé doesn’t show up? Maybe your father gave more attention to his new wife (your step-mother) than to you, at a time you really needed it? Perhaps you had a puppy that was tragically run over by the garbage truck at five years old, like mine was. I don’t have this configuration, but I certainly understand the depth of that painful loss.

Where you find this configuration (Fig. 1) you’ll find that the pain-memory in the heart is so deep and the emotional loss so unbearable that a bulletproof vest is created around the heart to prevent that kind of blindsiding pain, again. Opening the heart takes tremendous courage and trust that recovery is possible, if hurt – again. The downside of this marking is many missed opportunities for deeper love, as life continues.  It doesn’t mean the owner won’t or doesn’t love, but the fear of hurt can get in the way of more fulfilling love. The upside possibility is that the owner recognizes his or her internal barrier and comes into realization that she IS SAFE to move into love at her own pace.

If you, or someone you know, wear emotional armor, I suggest this positive affirmation: With conscious intention and courage, in full balance, I am appropriately opening to deeper levels of love. Even though it’s scary, the truth is, I am safe to love.

You and Your Personal Super Computer

You and Your Personal Super Computer

Published in Valley Voice, January 2, 2014

By Kay Packard

The Head Line in your hands illustrates the unique operations of your mental system. Just as your computer has a CPU (central processing unit), you do, too. You employ your mental system when you plan dinner, a vacation and your New Year resolutions. In hand analysis, the length, shape and quality of this line are associated with how you comprehend information and make decisions. The Head Line is associated with the element of air. Consider what happens in the air around you; information flows. This line is one of the three major lines in the palm. The other two major lines are the Life (see Nov. 21 issue) and Heart Lines.

The Head Line starts on the inside of the palm, above the inset of the thumb, and extends across the middle of the hand (see figure 1). Head Lines are different on every hand. They range in length from short to very long. The shapes are straight and flat, rounded downward, and deeply curving toward the wrist (see fig. 2).

As invisible radio signals travel through the airwaves, so too do your ideas, thoughts, concepts, theories and perceptions surge though your internal airways. These channels represent your mental wiring system. Nature has created an etching in your hand to depict how your unique computer system is programmed. How you plan, reason, analyze, and integrate ideas can be read from your Head Lines. The Head Line on your left hand shows how you think at home and the Head Line on your right hand shows how you reason at work, in the outer world.

Owners of short Head Lines tend to make decisions quickly. When I asked a hand analysis student with a short Head Line how she decided to buy her very lucrative stocks she replied, “I did a quick analysis and bought!” She got a tip from a friend and simply liked the products she was investing in. People with short Head Lines draw conclusions more quickly than people with longer Head Lines and if the line is also clear, they’re not likely to change their mind.

The longer the line, the more time is spent ‘on-line’ considering and compartmentalizing information. When one of my students with a long, straight Head Line started a business he created a lengthy business plan, with extensive cost analysis, and purchased a high tech email system with elaborate features for maintaining contacts and selling products. He expressed many ideas to get his business off the ground and to expand. He’s also writing a book and leading workshops.

When the Head Line is long, clear of obstruction, extends straight across the hand and terminates about ½ inch before the edge of the palm (fig. 1) you’ll find the octopus brain. This person won’t feel fulfilled unless he or she has an avenue to use his or her multifaceted brain. All legs of the octopus must be in synthesis mode for the owner to feel a deep sense of satisfaction.

Fig 1 Long Head Line

 

Fig. 1 Long, straight and flat Head Line: Synthesizer

Children with long Head Lines need enough intellectual challenge to keep them busy with school and home projects otherwise they may very well create problems with siblings, friends or school mates.

One 8-year-old in my Project Snowflake showed me his hands with a broken Head Line.  For a fraction of an inch the line was broken but soon resumed and continued toward the edge of the hand. His sister told me that he would stop talking midstream of telling a story. I asked her not to complete his sentences for him, knowing that he’d get back ‘online’ and complete his thought. He’s now 11-years-old and his Head Line is reattached

Adults with this very long headline are capable of multi-tasking and require colossal complexity through projects at work and home. If you have this Head Line, a sure sign to know you’re not fully using your potential, is relationship problems. If you initiate a problem in a relationship with your spouse or sister, then you have a juicy problem to wrestle with.

Check the quality of the line. Is your Head Line etched smoothly without obstruction? If yes, the more clear your thinking. Does it break then restart at a new point? If there is a break or interruption in the line, then you will most likely experience your mental computer flipping off line and rebooting every now and then.

Fig 2 Long curving head line

Fig. 2 Long, curving Head Line down toward the wrist: Sensitive

The deep, curving Head Line (fig. 2) signifies a person who is deeply reflective, creative and perceptive in their thinking. Deep meaning in life influences their ideas and considerations. They are sensitive and responsive to their environment including people’s feelings. The deeply curving Head Line implies a gift of hidden and consuming emotion, where there is no reason, and the genius to understand others who enter into their world of deep waters. If they aren’t already, I suggest to my clients with long, curing Head Lines to involve themselves in hospice or other deeply caring health care.

Keep in mind; no Head Line is better than another. The way a person processes information is simply the way a person processes information. Consider that everyone comprehends information differently; people make decisions in different ways. A mentor once said, “Seek to understand, then to be understood.” Taking time to better understanding your own methods for decision-making and considering another’s different way of decision-making can generate patience and compassion when relating to others.

You, Your Vitality System and the Holiday Season

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

by Kay Packard, M.A.

Published in the Valley Voice Newspaper December 19, 2013.

Knowing what your Life Line has to say about you can help you elevate from grumble to grace during this holiday season. In hand analysis, the length, shape and quality of this line are associated with the physical body, awareness of and attention to the physical world. Your Life Line indicates your ability to get-up-and-go and your needs for rest and rejuvenation. This line is one of the three major lines in the palm. The other two major lines are the Heart and Head Lines. The Life Line is carved on the inside of the hand around the mound where the thumb connects to the palm (see figure 1).

AAHA Long Life Line

Fig. 1 Arrows pointing to a long and curving Life Line

Let me put one myth to rest – the length of the Life Line does not predict the length of one’s life. It does show concerns about protection and preservation of the body. This is considered the line of family and tribe because we build our physical constitution within our tribe. As humans, we look to our community for support and safety. As we feel safe in our clan, our core energy system is more likely to be in balance.

The Life Line is associated with the element of the Earth and is associated with roots and productivity. If you have a long, clear and deep Life Line (Fig. 1, above), you are down to earth, with a strong sense of security and stamina for living. Likewise, if you have a short or hard-to-see Life Line (figure 2), you will feel a constant restlessness, a bit edgy, with a tendency to ‘fly’.  You may be living on the surface of life, staying busy, but not really “digging in” and planting yourself.

As a master hand analyst, I read the Life Line for:

- Personal vitality

- Stability and energy management

- Physical strength and stamina; vigor and verve

- Relationship to the sense of physical safety

Long, clear and unobstructed Life Lines belong to people who are in sync with their environment and maintain stability in their physical body even under stressful situations like shopping at Costco on a Sunday afternoon. There is a natural rhythm in the routine activities of life. They dig in and live life to the fullest surrounded by the natural elements such as mountains, rivers, trees and parks.

If your Life Line is long, deep and clear you are strong in vitality and physical condition. You have a robust nature and staying power. You are tuned into your body and effectively utilize your energy system, like rock climbers, marathon runners, skiers, and yoga gurus.

During this holiday season, you may be the one to corral the family for a hike, an outdoor BBQ (even if it’s 50 degrees) or drive to Sequoia National Park. Keep in mind; this may not be everyone’s dream for a family gathering. While your stamina is high, do keep to your routine as much as possible so that you don’t become resentful. 

AAHA Weak Life Line

Fig. 2 Short and scattering Life Line – Reluctant to rest

If your Life Line is short, delicate and scattered like figure 2, you have difficulty resting. Your personal anchor and grounding system has been compromised. You may be quite familiar with living in a routine of ‘flight’. You might feel like you’re constantly scrambling to get life in order; “There is not enough time to get it all done.” Core survival issues play havoc in your life and family. At worst, the sense of support from family is severely lacking which creates a shortage of trust in the tribal system. If your tribal system is at risk you will most likely question your contributions to and position in society, asking, “Do I belong here?”  Doubt in one’s role in the community can cause anxiety and internal tension that, in turn, creates a deep-seated urge to create safety and to keep others safe. When this is recognized, understood and addressed that owner can successfully implement a plan for poise and stability on a regular basis.

Short and weak Life Line rescue kit: Take ample time to renew. Heed the call of restlessness and take a deep breath. Schedule time in your routine to plant your feet on the ground by taking walks or hiking. Gravitate to authentic members in your village.

In summary, if you own of a short Life Line, you can transcend grumble to grace by setting personal agreements for well-deserved rest and renewal. If you have a long, well-etched Life Line, you can bring the outdoors inside if the family doesn’t share in your zest for the environment.  In either scenario, remember this is a time to relish in our tribal bonds in gratitude for the security of the root established in our community.

The Flip Side ~ Featuring the Composite Whorl

The Flip Side ~ Featuring the Composite Whorl

By Kay Packard

Each fingerprint has a ‘micro-life’ of its own.  There is an announcement programmed within the design of each glyph depending on the finger where it resides.  Just like nature, with her assortment of patterns, so too do the fingerprints reflect a precise illustration. That message plays out in the ‘macro-life’ of the owner.

Let’s delve into the Composite Whorl.  There are a variety of types of whorls that can be seen with the naked eye.  If needed, a magnifying glass will help with your inspection.

AAHA Whorl Print Examples

The whorl pattern must have two tri-radii to be considered a whorl. Red arrows, above point to each tri-radii. In the Composite Whorl the core is looping back around itself. The center looks like an “S”.

If you or anyone you know has a Composite Whorl, with an “S” you may likely alternate between two specific aspects related to the print location.

Location Matters – This fancy print can be found on any finger, thumb or impressed into the palm. The “S” Whorl reveals opposites – opposites of what?  See the right and left hand finger descriptions on the hand maps below to better understand the opposites that are burrowed into each fingertip. The description on the top is the consciousness experienced while in the ‘on’ position. The description on the bottom is the interpreted awareness during the ‘off’ position.  The two energies offer an opposing affect. There is vacillation between the two positions.

AAHA Composite Whorl Rt Hand Map

 

AAHA Composite Whrol Lft Hand Map

Now, identify the location for your “S” Whorl.  If you have one, or more, you’ll most likely be seeing movie scenes featuring both sides related to the associated finger it lives on.  These movie clips can feature others’ lives as well as your own. These etchings have been imprinted on the owner since five (5) months prior to birth. The designs of all fingerprints are unalterable.  This blinking effect of the “S” won’t go away or change. What you can change is your reaction toward the experiences you ‘see’.

Life Path Options for the “S” – Junior, Advanced and Master

Junior Path:  You feel stuck in the ‘off’ position. This is the down side, the bad hair day condition. You may even self-sabotage to remain fixed in the ‘off’ situation. Why might you stay stuck? Staying stuck is familiar. Being accustomed to a pattern can keep you locked in to that pattern, regardless if it boosts or busts your sense of well-being. But if you’re reading this, you’re more aware and willing to take the next step.

Advanced Path: You recognize and learn from the ‘off’ position to get to ‘on’.  You see the ‘off’ as a means to build character and develop your souls growth. At the same time, you experiment with your life lesson, more and more. To identify your life lesson, locate the digit(s) where your lowest ranking fingerprints reside.

Master Path: You flip between both sides integrating the two extremes without entertaining an ‘off-balance-reaction’.  You remain evenhanded and perceive life beyond the opposites. There is even a possibility that you find yourself in the ‘on’ position much of the time. When you find yourself on the Master Path, you have most likely confronted and embraced your life lesson. At your best, you have even exalted your life lesson.

For example, I have an “S” on my right thumb (Success and Failure). On a regular basis I experience what I believe as failure and success. It’s a sense (both feeling and thought) of failure and success.  I have let the fear of failure prevent me from achieving the results my deepest Self is calling for me to do and be.  After having my hands analyzed, and playing with the toggle affects, I’ve learned to say “Yes to “S.””  Now, my reactions to potential failure are silenced. When I smell the sense of failure, I literally look in the opposite direction. I visualize success through trial and error. I honor the call for success in the moment and transcend into a deeper aspect of Self.  Will I always be in this enlightened state?  Who knows?  It’s a learning journey and I’m in for the ride!

On the learning path, the S-owner might say “Oh- no, someone save me, I’m in the “off” side (again). That pickle is actually a gift. I’m here to inspire you to say “yes” to “S”!  Take responsibility and embrace the internal squabble.  Use the perception to see your way to awakening to a deeper and more profound facet of your Self.

I’d love to hear back from you if you have an “S” Whorl.  Tell me where you’re at on your path relative to the flip sides of the finger description where it’s located.  If I’ve read your hands and you’d like me to check my files to confirm the possibility of the “S” you might be seeing on your fingertips, PLEASE ask me.  I live for this work and the steps toward self-realization for everyone.

If you’d like a first time or follow-on reading, let’s talk! Hand Analysis has helped thousands of people add incredible insights to their personal tool kits for manifesting their right life. The right life = the best life as determined by each individual.

In the mean time, don’t let the “off” get in the way of your “on” and beyond!

Hand Analysis Can Prove Insightful

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Below is an article written by Catherine Doe, reporter with the Valley Voice newspaper serving Tulare and Kings Counties in Central California. It was printed November 21, 2013.

Hand Analysis Can Prove Insightful

by Catherine Doe

We are each a soul living a human experience. Did you ever wonder what your soul’s agenda is? All you have to do is look at your hands. Or have Kay Packard, founder of the American Academy of Hand Analysis, read your hands for you.

When Kay was 38, she woke up one day and asked herself, “Why am I here? Because this can’t be it.” It took five more years of searching, but after some friends encouraged her to get her hands read it changed her life.

“I was just blown away by what the hand reader told me about myself,” she recalled. “I couldn’t even articulate it.”  She eventually quit her high-paying job as a project manager for Boeing and became a fulltime hand reader. “I’m not in it to make a million but it is very fulfilling. There is nothing else I want to do in my life, especially those times when someone learns something new about themselves.”

Our daughter, Mercedes, a freshman at Exeter High School, was eager to get her hands read, so I drove her up to Kay’s Three Rivers studio to discover her life’s purpose.

Kay Packard studies the handprint of Mercedes Oldenbourg (above)

Kay starts by taking prints of both hands. Because we live in a right-handed world, even lefties use their right hand most often. Only one percent will predominately use their left hand and Kay can tell because the left print will come out stronger. The right hand represents the person in the outside world and the left hand represents how they are at home.

Her analysis is based on both the physical hands and the small details that can be better seen on the prints. Living in Three Rivers could limit her clientele, but Kay does about ninety percent of her readings by long distance, either over the phone, Skype or on the computer. She sends the client a print kit, which is returned with their payment. Kay has thousands of prints and keeps an archive in case the client wants her to do a follow-up reading and compare any changes that might have happened in the hand’s lines.

Kay starts the reading by examining her client’s fingerprints. “I look at the finger tips to see what the soul’s agenda is,” said Kay.

Your fingerprints were formed when you were in the womb five months before birth and are unalterable from that point forward. She can’t tell you when you will get married or how many babies you will have, but your fingertips can tell you what your soul wants to experience. She will be able to see what life’s lessons will come your way and what challenges you will face. Coming to an understanding that struggles are really life lessons is what makes a hand analysis such a transformative experience. A client’s view can fundamentally change from negative feelings of sorrow and anger, to feelings of gratitude for their struggles.

“Those struggles will ultimately strengthen your soul’s purpose,” said Kay.

The lines on your hand, such as the heart, life and head line, and any markings that stand out like whorls, dots or stars, can reveal some of your talents, gifts and strengths. Your palm also reveals some of the challenges you are facing in life.

After letting her eye wander over Mercedes’ hand, like looking through a forest and seeing what pops out, Kay revealed that Mercedes’ life purpose was to be a teacher. This does not necessarily mean a teacher in the traditional sense but could mean being a mentor or guide or example.

“She is the go-to girl for information,” Kay explained.

Service apparently is Mercedes’ life path, and when she teaches in the line it is going to bring her great satisfaction. Mercedes will pursue three avenues of service: one to herself, a second to her family, friends and community and a third to make the planet a better place. One of her biggest life challenges will be to keep these three areas of service in balance and not lose herself in the process.

One of Mercedes’ biggest life challenges will be engaging in power struggles. People will try and have authority over her, or will be telling her what to do and when. She will have to learn to stand her ground and and decide for herself when, and how, she is going to be of service.

“By default, your little soul is a helper: reliable, dependable and capable of doing a great job,” said Kay.

Another challenge for Mercedes will be to figure out when to jump into a relationship or when to stay back. She is also a healer, which ties into her teacher role, in the sense she has the capability to listen and give people good advice – leading them to be able to heal themselves.

The heart line, the first major line on your palm, reveals how you relate to people and how you like to be treated. Mercedes had a hermit heart line, which means she needs to have her own space, her own sanctuary. She needs to take her time to decide how she feels and needs to be alone with her thoughts. Surprises aren’t her thing and loyalty is important to her. She won’t have a large group of friends but a few good friends.

The middle line on your palm is the head line, which represents your mental system. Mercedes head line indicates that she is very creative and more emotional, which is in conflict with her hermit line. Kay advised journaling to relieve this conflict between the two.

The life line is the last of the three dominate lines on your palm. It does not indicate how long you will live but how vital your energy system is. A long clear life line means that you have good health and bounce back quickly if you get sick.

Other prominent features on Mercedes’ hands were her girdles of Venus, the star of Apollo, and a peacock on her index finger, which meant she was sort of a maverick. Kay also looks at each finger and the shape of your hand. The dominant finger is the straightest and most prominent. The shape of the hand can be determined by taking off the thumb and determining if you have a square, pear or other shaped hand.

Kay was emphatic when she said that anyone can learn to do hand analysis. It does take some intuition, but intuition develops by default after doing readings for awhile. Everything is a vibration, and hands are a vibrational imprint, so “I’m not only looking at your hands but I am feeling them also.” This intuition can develop by itself, but Kay’s graduate program at the University of Santa Monica had techniques that helped her tap into her inner voice.

Kay just finished writing her first book, Your Life is in Your Hands and is currently looking for a publisher. In it she reproduces fifty handprints so that readers can pick out markings similar to theirs and do their own mini-reading.

Whether teaching hand analysis through her book or trainings, Kay wants people to live a more profound and meaningful life. As she sees it, “the soul-print for anyone’s life is locked in the skin carvings on the hands and most importantly the fingerprint patterns.  How amazing is that?”
