How to Find Your Right Vocation Part II

When we live on our natural path effort is unnecessary. Think of a river as it naturally flows over rocks and around bends. The river is not working- yet there is a tremendous force of nature at work – carving deep canyons into mountains.

This is my objective – to help you find your powerful flow so you can be free of effort – and it’s literally designed in the palms of your hands.

When properly understood and interpreted, the hands clearly identify the potential skills, attributes, talents, strengths and preferences of an individual, as well as the potential weaknesses and blocks to overcome. A skillful hand reading and coaching with a professional can greatly change the direction and perception for possible career options. While your hand reader will offer insightful guidance, it is entirely up to you to choose what is best and right for you. The concrete and unique information in the hands can remove the guess-work as to what is the best vocation. One’s natural path for “right” work is literally etched in the palms and fingerprints. Your hand reader is the translator of that information to you, as the client.

Key components:

1) The hand (shape, lines and specific markings)

2) The fingerprints (life path, purpose and lesson)

As a scientific hand analyst I use the following checklist to begin my vocational assessment using the first component – the hand. I focus on the right hand first because it is typically considered the dominant hand.

–   Hand Shape archetypal combinations reveal temperament and preferences. One is motivated toward what is important to him or her. As an example, productivity and reliability is important to the Earth handed person while impressions and relationships are important to the water handed person.

–  Dominant fingers act as antennas transmitting and receiving potencies and areas of interest. For example, a person with a straight, tall and upright middle (Saturn) finger will place value in organization, structure, discipline and responsibility.

Now, if you blend an Earth hand with a dominant middle finger the owner will feel best in work with organizational structures providing productive and reliable outcomes – as in road construction. Rules and simplicity will be important. Conversely, the Water hand blended with a dominant middle finger will find the owner attracted to discipline and order in relationships. You may find him or her rehearsing lines for an upcoming stage performance, molding to the impression of the character he or she will play. 

–  The fullest Mount on the palm will show an excess reservoir of energy for use. For example, if the fullest Mount is around the ball of the Thumb (Venus zone), then the owner will be inclined to socialize, play and indulge in luxury.

–  The Heart Line provides clues as to the non-negotiable emotional requirements of the owner. A long curving up to the index finger Heart Line type will want to connect with people. Conversely, a short, straight Heart Line would rather work alone and complete projects and tasks.

–  Gift Markings pinpoint unique signatures to embody and shine into the world. Associated obstacles accompany each gift marking to help point the way to it’s advanced path.

The above are a few considerations your vocational hand analysis session will include to build a theme for your life’s most fulfilling work.

Part 3 will include five additional variables to consider in the hand when selecting a vocation.

How To Find Your Right Vocation So You Can Live Your Best Life Part I

Finding True North

Have you found your “right” work, yet? If so, was it an easy road to discover your ideal vocation? Or did you have to drag yourself to work you didn’t like on your path to get to your ‘just right’ work? Or are you asking yourself, “What else could I be doing rather than ‘this’? Or do you just feel flat out – stuck?

Clients see me when they feel empty and unfulfilled, which is exactly how I felt before deciding to leave my corporate career of 23 years in 2009. By outer world standards I had the optimal career and a killer salary!  I was truly happy for many early-years at Hughes Aircraft Company. During the later-years I was proud to say, “I work for the Boeing Company.” However, the tasks I did didn’t thrill my Inner satisfaction meter.

People typically ask me for guidance when they are

·      Looking for something new, but are just not sure what it is

·      Preparing to leave an old job or way of life

·      Looking for validation that they are currently on the right path

·      Feeling under utilized at work and want more responsibility and a promotion

·      Preparing to retire and wondering what to “do” next

·      Hesitating to quite a job they hate when they are within 5 years of retirement


This is when hand analysis and coaching pair together for optimal results because people can move through change with clarity and conviction. I believe people truly want to step into a bigger aspect of themselves.

Everyone seeks fulfillment and each person has a unique formula for fulfillment.

When have you felt fulfilled and how did you know you were?  For me I have feel deep inner peace, centeredness and a sense of equanimity. 

Traveling through the Trees

Where is your path taking you?

Synonyms for “fulfillment” include:

·      Contentment

·      Satisfaction

·      Serenity

·      Happiness

·      Self-Realization

·      Success

On a scale from 1-10, 10 being happiest, 1 being hopeless, where would you rate yourself right now?

After my mom died in 2005 my life took a drastic turn toward optimal living. All the sudden life became very, very precious to me. She always encouraged me to not only work, but to do work I loved.  

Look for following articles how to use the concrete map in the hands to pinpoint a person’s purposeful vocation using God-given gifts and talents for harmonious employment. It is literally inscribed in the hands. I’m excited and honored to share this with you so that you can live your very best life for the rest of your life!

I met Sawyer Rose just after she was born two years ago. Here is her first hand printing in May 2015 at age 2-years and 3-months. Seeing her fingerprints, even at this early age, gives us insight into her extraordinary life purpose.

Interview with Caroline Douglas

Sunday, April 26th, 2015
Caroline Douglas

Caroline Douglas, AAHA CHA

With great pleasure, I introduce you to Artist and Hand Analyst, Caroline Douglas.

When and how did you start reading hands?

After I had mine read by Baeth Davis in 2008, I thought what a profound healing tool. So I began studying it and taking classes, eventually being Certified with you Kay.

Are you specializing in any particular area of hand analysis? If so, what is it?

I am not focusing on any one thing, but I do seem to attract really creative people. I also see a lot of gift markings…. maybe since I have so many too :o)

What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?

I love how validating it is for people, how they often feel seen for the first time in a real way. Also, it is a great way for me to use my gifts of insight and healing and it is a great connector in a profound way.

Has your life lesson ever shown up during a reading?  If so, how and what did you learn from that experience?

Well yes, my life lessons… I have several, but the one that trumps them all is left Saturn- guilt and unworthiness. So especially in the beginning of reading hands, I would doubt myself and what I was seeing. But after expressing what I saw, it got easier and I had more certainty when people were so touched by it.

How do you apply your life purpose and your life lesson, in other words, how do you see them work together?

Good question! My life purpose of Public Impact in the Healing Arts is always pushing me to be sharing my story of how I healed myself after a head injury through art and to be creative in the spotlight. My lessons are incompletion, powerlessness and unworthiness. They contribute to me holding back and preferring to hide through self-doubt. Two books come to mind… Art and Fear (which describes in detail all the resistances we can come up with to avoid creating) and Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway, which is the story of my life!

Do you have a bad experience you can share to help others avoid a similar situation?

I did a couple reading where one had a Simian. I fell into confusion while trying to validate both people. I felt frustrated that the reading was not more help for them. Basically I couldn’t heal their relationship. It was only later that I realized that I was doing the best I could and that I need to be clear about boundaries and setting an intention.  I did another couple’s reading right after that so I could get over that fear. And that one was great! And who’s to say the first one was not great, too, just that it stirred things up. Sometimes that is what is needed for healing to happen.

What advice would you give to new students of Hand Analysis?

Trust yourself and practice a lot! It will be very healing for you, too.

What intentions do you have for your Hand Analysis practice during the next six months?

I want to get caught up with all the readings I need to do!

Bully Buster

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Do you have the markings of a bully buster? Look at the Inner Mars zone in the palms of your hands.  One of many key words for this zone is stamina.

Mars Zone


When looking at your Mars zone, either hand, do you see any of the following markings:

– Fullness/puffiness
– Star (6 pointed asterisk)
– Whorl
– The start of your Head Line
– Grills

Mars Star

Grill in Mars

Standing up for the underdog brings fulfillment to the owner with a well marked Mars zone. Mars is the archetype for the warrior and he (or she) needs a cause, something to stand for, to protect. A star shows the gift of bravery. The whorl indicates a life purpose where his or her exceptional courage is exercised. With the Head Line starting inside the Life Line, the owner will do well to advocate for those who are unable to stand up for themselves – such as mistreated animals, foster children, or battered women – to name a few. However, if this hero-type doesn’t have an appropriate cause for all this energy, he or she just may end up feeling cowardly, or the opposite – rageful. Just like the Lion in “Wizard of Oz,” owners of one or more of the markings above must have a bold and fearless course of action to devote their enthusiasm toward.
