Following is an excerpt from my upcoming book, Your Life Is In Your Hands.
Guide for Lost Souls
The owner of a long head Line that curves deep into the palm considers ideas, thoughts, and activities that are influenced by deep meaning in life. People with this type of Head Line have felt the trap that Persephone felt after Hades kidnapped her to make her his wife. Held against her will, Persephone was trapped in the dark, dismal, gloomy underworld. If you have this deeply curving head Line, you most likely understand the feeling of depression. It doesn’t mean you are depressed but you know what it means to be depressed. Like Persephone, you have experienced despair associated with “your life not being your own.” You are sensitive and responsive to your environment, including the feelings of all beings. As Persephone matured she opened her heart to Hades and to the other lost souls ensnared in the underworld. Likewise, as you mature you develop a deep compassion for others that can develop into life work as a guide for people who have been led astray or trapped. A deeply curving head Line represents a potential path to mature into the Queen of the Underworld, handling hidden and all-consuming emotion, where reason has no place. Persephone also knew that she would return to the bright world above in spring each year. You have a genius for understanding others who enter into their own world of deep and unpredictable waters.
Long, curving Head Line, toward the wrist
After describing the implication of this type of head Line to one client, she confirmed the analysis saying, “Oh, yes, that’s me.” Unexpectedly, I dive into a very dark place. I’m used to it now, so I have a mini fridge in my room with ice cream in it. I comfort myself on my favorite fluffy bedspread with DVDs next to my TV. I do know I’ll eventually resurface to everyday life.” Persephone did resurface out of the darkness, after choosing to do so, and realized her power in the decision and in her journey.
Key Words: Despair, grief, powerlessness, empathy, resurrection
Guide for Lost Souls Positive: I am able to be fully and completely present with deep sadness, maintain compassion, and steer others to their inner light.
Guide for Lost Souls Negative: Immobile, I remain a victim of kidnapping by hopelessness, believing I have no way out.
Mantra: I willingly open myself to deep emotion and am appropriately available to myself and other lost souls ready to “come back to life,” again, feeling joy.
You are most welcome, and encouraged, to share this excerpt from Your Life Is In Your Hands: Practical Palm Reading for Purposeful Living by Kay Packard, M.A.. Please include the name of the Author and www.AcademyofHandAnalysis.org
It is a pleasure to introduce you to Beth Ronsick. Beth completed her interview with me just after attending her third Vipassana meditation retreat. Beth is a Certified Hand Analyst, Transition Coach, Trainer and Facilitator. She helps senior executives and leadership teams take their leadership skills and career satisfaction to the next level. Beth lives in Denver, Colorado.
When and how did you start reading hands?
I had my hands read in NYC in 2000 by Baeth Davis and was impressed by the depth and resonance of the info that was shared. I went on with my life, but every so often, would listen to the recording and loved that I would hear something different each time. They were still the same archetypes, but as I changed, my insight into the archetypes kept unfolding on ever more subtle levels. In 2005, I decided to take her weekend workshop on the basics of fingerprint identification. I did it out of curiosity, and didn’t really think much about making it a business. I just kept wanting to learn more until one day I was certified! I also did coaching certification in that same year and started to see how helpful hand analysis could be as a tool to coaching clients. Over the years, it has become one of the three favorite tools in my coach’s toolbox.
Are you specializing in any particular area of hand analysis? If so, what is it?
I work with senior executives who are trying to figure out the next chapter of career—what they want, and how to reinvent for success. I also work with leadership teams who want to know their group Purpose and Lesson and to do team building based on this knowledge.
What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?
Because the fingerprint chart is innate, there’s a deep level of self-acceptance available to a client through a reading. You already ARE your Purpose. It’s not about being something else, it’s about accepting what flows through you when you get out of your way. And because Purpose and Lesson are intertwined, when your Lesson arises, it’s exactly what is supposed to be happening. I find that clients walk away with a genuine level of self-validation, and a clearer capacity to make choices for themselves. This to me is an extraordinary gift. (And so humbling.)
Has your life lesson ever shown up during a reading? If so, how and what did you learn from that experience?
More generally speaking, I had to learn to find a way to market hand analysis that lovingly worked with my Lesson. Upon certification, I was encouraged to do as many free mini-readings as possible, and yet, these rarely generated business. After each party, event, etc. that I did, I felt physically depleted and emotionally down on myself for not getting business. I realized that my Lesson (trusting my value in relationship) was there front and center: When I give it away for free, I attract people who only want what’s free. And being in the School of Service, it started to feel like service to the point of sacrifice. When I hold the monetary value of what I offer (the inverse of my Lesson) and invoke my Purpose by finding innovative ways to mentor, I easily attract clients who are willing to pay for private consultations. For me, that has meant speaking engagements and 1-hour public workshops where I can teach a simple aspect of the hands and then make an offer. This allows me to still serve in a creative way, but not at the expense of my livelihood or self-esteem.
How do you apply your life purpose and your life lesson, in other words, how do you see them work together?
So much of my Lesson is about asking for what I want and need in regard to the Saturnian aspects of life: To ask for a fair fee for my services. To trust that what I offer is of value. To make time and space for inner work and for nurturing my self and my spiritual life. If I neglect these things, the results I get are diminished, and my creative focus gets scattered. My Purpose is like a river of continuously flowing creativity and mentorship. And my Lesson is like the army corps of engineers coming in to build the structure that allows me to channel my Purpose constructively.
What are your fingerprint patterns?
|Whorl||Composite Whorl||Composite Whorl||Whorl||Loop|
Do you have a bad experience you can share to help others avoid a similar situation?
I once had a client with a Lesson of “violation” who got so angry when we started the session, I had to ask her to leave. Her Lesson got triggered within the first five minutes, while I was sharing what we would cover in the reading. She got agitated and started to make aggressive demands about what my role should be in the session and what information I should give her because she was desperate to change. While I gently suggested that the behavior she was demonstrating in the moment was what was blocking her—and that this was exactly what we could start unlocking—her reactivity was so high, she could not focus, and she started to become verbally abusive. It was fascinating. And gut-wrenching to see her suffer. And of course, it was rattling to be on the receiving end of her rage. What I learned and would pass on is that it’s important to let go of whether or not the reading plays out the way you envision it, and that you are not responsible for how someone responds to the information in their hands. Trust that you can still be a part of that person’s healing journey by being compassionate with them, while remaining true to yourself. (In this case, that meant being clear with her about my own boundaries for what I will and won’t tolerate from a client, which demonstrated the opposite of her Lesson of “violation”).
What advice would you give to new students of Hand Analysis?
Read as many hands as you can! And don’t be afraid to dialogue with your clients. Ask to hear their stories of how their Purpose, Lesson and School show up in their lives. I continue to learn so much by hearing how these innate patterns and archetypes play out in the day-to-day flow of a client’s life—it gives insight into another’s experience; it enables compassion for another’s struggles; and it builds a body of knowledge to draw upon, as you’ll start to see patterns emerge when you read for people whose hands are similar.
What intentions do you have for your Hand Analysis practice during the next six months?
I hope to spend some time thinking through how to make a more cohesive business offering for the corporate world. I have had some great experiences with corporate team workshops and am ready to pull that experience together into a more packaged, benefit-led program.

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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
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
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.

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.
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
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, 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 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.
