Into the Light ~ Interview with Anne Bunnell

Monday, June 3rd, 2013
Anne Bunnell

Anne Bunnell, CHA and Associate Faculty

Anne Bunnell is an Associate Faculty of the AAHA. She became a Certified Hand Analyst in 2005 through the International Institute of Hand Analysis (IIHA) with Teacher Alana Unger. Anne lives in Petaluma, California.

When and how did you start reading hands?

I decided to study hand analysis in 2004 after experiencing some unexplainable anger issues that had arisen in my life that I couldn’t find the cause of.  After doing some deep work with Alana Unger, it became very clear that it was my Life Purpose screaming for expression that was the source of my angst and anger.  Hand Analysis was my instrument of choice to “get the music out”.

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

Gift markings and heart lines fascinate me.  I find great fun and joy in sharing this information with my client and hearing their stories of how they experience these lines and markings in their own hands.

What is most meaningful to you about reading hands?

I love the sacred trust that happens when someone opens their hands to be read, trusting that they are safe and there is no judgment.  I also am grateful for the opportunity to validate and celebrate who they are with no judgment.

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

My Life lesson pays me a visit before every reading, without fail.  It shows up as the left Saturn voice in my head (“surely I don’t know enough yet”).  I have learned to quickly recognize it for what it is and just jump into the reading whole-heartedly anyway, allowing it to unfold.

What really cracks me up is that sometimes, if I have the same life lesson as my client, I struggle to explain about that particular part of their life lesson and sometimes I have even drawn a blank.  So I usually just laugh, fess up, move on and circle back around to it.

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

The awareness of my life lesson (blind spot) and understanding how it shows up in my life has helped me to more quickly recognize my internal resistance for what it truly is.  I can usually challenge and move through the fear and judgment by going ahead anyway, just taking small steps forward, one at a time.  I have learned that if and when I choose to consciously challenge the belief around my life lesson, some pretty terrific things unfold.

What are your fingerprint patterns? (replace contents below with yours in the fingerprint chart)

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

When I was a student in the IIHA year long program, I did a reading with a woman who was very guarded and had extremely dry hands.  I was having trouble seeing her fingerprints so she applied some lotion that she had to see if that would help.  It did make it easier to see her prints but the lotion was so fragrant that it made me sick to my stomach.  Then, when it came to sharing the information about her life lesson (left Jupiter), she immediately rejected what I had to say and refused to even consider the possibility that this could be her blind spot.  Needless to say I was a bit unnerved and one of us abruptly ended the reading right then and there.  (Actually I think it was my left Saturn life lesson that ended the reading).  Anyway, I learned a few things from that experience:

  1. I was still VERY new at reading hands and took her response as if I had said something wrong (my LL).   The more vocabulary you can gather and use to explain about LP and LL the better.  Ask other hand analysts what words and ideas they use in their readings.
  2. I always carry UNSCENTED lotion in my supplies, just in case.

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

My advice to budding Hand Analysts:

  1. Be easy on yourself.  You know more than you think you do.
  2. When you feel overwhelmed…breathe.
  3. Keep an open mind and heart so that you can see what you are learning from the reading as well as your client.
  4. Work on not being attached to the outcome of a reading, you are simply the messenger.
  5. Learn what you can from other Hand Analysts, there is an unending wealth of knowledge in this very supportive community, but please try really hard NOT to compare yourself to other readers.  You will develop your own unique style that brings your gifts and talents to this amazing practice.
  6. Trust the process, there is always a bigger picture at play.

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

Separating my practice into the different layers, my intentions for the next six months are to continue with my individual hand readings, develop a new website on squarespace.com (which is very user friendly so I am attempting it myself) and continue to participate in the wonderful classes offered through the AAHA and Earth School.

Talus and His Monkey Line

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Talus and Mom came by share his two-year-and-seven-month hands with me.  He intently performed my requested hand printing, almost without instruction.  He printed his baby doll too!

Talus calls this line racing across his hand (above), “A Monkey Line.”  The monkey does fly from tree to tree with intent and grace.  I also like to think of it like a tight-rope where the walker is very aware of his (or her) every step.  Years of practice assure the walker remains wrapped to the line.

Inspiring and Intense Artistic Mastery

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

I’d like this 8-Year Old to be on my radar for years to come because of a few significant markings on her left hand (below).  One particular line called the Line of Apollo is stretching from the bottom of her palm up toward her ring finger (in pink).  While it is running a jagged course it still very much indicates the design of a professional artist.  Think of someone in the spotlight, maybe on the silver screen, who is a writer, performer with voice and instrument and possibly even a director, all wrapped in one.

She also has a Simian Line running horizontal along her hand from one side to the other (dark teal).  The key word for this line is intensity.  The emotional and mental systems are merged together.  They form a union and lend to the owner doing what they do with all of their being. 

Because of the inside organization of emotions with thoughts there can be a sense of misunderstandings with others.  With extra care in the communications department  – which means purposeful practice in clarifying messages – she can develop into a master of communications.  Combine the preceding with the last minute veering of the Apollo Line toward the pinkie finger – the finger of communications – and we may see a theme of interpreting and translating in original and innovative form. 

As a reminder, I am not making predictions about her future.  The lines can change and are most likely to change with her personal development.  The markings in the hand tend to indicate the preferences and inclinations of the owner.

One other line to note is the orange vertical line reaching up toward the index finger.  This is the line of inspiration and ambition.  This tells me she has an urge to surge with vision.  Her high ideals stimulate her vision and thus lead to her inspiring nature.

When combining just these three lines she has the talent of an inspiring and intense artist on her way to mastery.  Skills are required to develop mastery and in her case the following will help: practice and persistence in communicating her creative wants, visions, ideas and innovations; then doing them! 

On a side note, her life purpose is the Successful Pioneer.  As she handles the arrows, stands true to her values and trusts her inner voice, I’d imagine we’ll see big things from this little one.   Stay tuned!

 

Simian Line and The Tight Rope

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Insight from the American Academy of Hand Analysis ~ by Kay Packard
Subject: The Tight Rope – Mastering Communications
Marking in the Hand: Simian Line – Heart and Head Lines entwined in Union on one or both hands.

Interpretation: A level of intense behavior is associated with the owner of a simian line(s). The line acts as a divide separating the upper (abstract) and lower (physical) areas of the palm. The divide is like a tight rope, and walking it takes extreme balance, focus, training, skill and courage. The movie “Man on Wire” depicts the drive and interior discipline needed to walk the rope. Now imagine the difficulty if the rope being walked is being pulled in two different directions, like a game of tug of war. Whoa! That is the challenge facing those with a simian line(s). They find themselves quickly walking, if not sprinting, back and forth between opposites. “Today I want carpet, tomorrow I want wood floors”. And it’s installed within 24 hours by their own hands!

Another challenge for the owner of this marker is to communicate effectively. The thinking system (head) is tightly woven with the feelings (heart) system and therefore usually influences how the words flow out of her mouth. While she feels she is being very clear in her words, the person or group she’s speaking to may misunderstand her. Likewise, words coming into her ears from another may also get garbled up and misinterpreted. This can be frustrating for both parties. Just trying to keep up with the lightning fast progression in a conversation with the owner of a simian line can be exhausting, but very exciting!

There is internal tension here similar to a snake shedding its skin. The old skin is released and the mind/body prepared for the new. Yet the ‘new’ brings uncertainties that can feel awkward and potentially unbearable. This gives the impression of a ‘critical edge’. Their volatility isn’t about another person; it is purely about their internal struggle to understand their own emotional excitement, distress, joy, restlessness, frustration and dissatisfactions.

Recommendation for the Owner: Allow and accept yourself for your tendencies to act/react and then retreat. You seem to feel more than others and you might not understand why they are not as intense as you, or vice-versa, why you are so intense. There is nothing wrong with you. You are amazing! You have tremendous energy for accomplishment and are learning to effectively harness and apply that power. You ‘over-process’ on the inside, so others may see you as either a run away freight train, or aloof and uncaring. Your job is to communicate in a variety of ways to be understood. Practice, practice, practice. Give yourself time to percolate those intense feeling-thoughts, and be sure to have a physical outlet to release them in order  to avoid less healthy ways to calm down. If you feel a desperate need reinvent yourself – hang in there!  You may suddenly transport to a new level in your personal evolutionary journey.  Vigor and drive compel your walk on the tight rope.  Your path of great potential is being a Communications Master!

Growing Talus at 1 yr and 10 mon

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Snowflake Talus visiting in Summer.

His thumb is low set and angled widely away from the hand (above). This shows his desire to embrace a large playground.

Talus is becoming skilled in walking the tight rope – his head and heart are entwined into one line of Union.

Together we’ll watch his intense drive shine through his creative outlet.  Here he is moving to the rhythm of sound!

Finn at Four

Friday, May 27th, 2011

May 27, 2011: For the first time, Finn (age 4)  invited me to print and photograph his hands.  I jumped at his offering.  Little did I know I’d need to ‘fight’ for the prints that he bestowed upon me. 

Snowmobile Simian

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

If you’ll recall, Talus has a Simian Line on one of his hands.  Doing with intensity won’t be out of the ordinary for him.  The photo below shows he’s well on track with his training program.

Dusting the Play Yard

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

Nov. 12, 2010 – Five Snowflakes found in one place – it’s a miracle.  Below are a few shots they posed for.

  Anna (above) has two hermit heart lines and two straight head lines.  She also has at least 7 loops on her finger tips.  She thinks, thinks, thinks how she’s  f e e l i n g  and let you know about it when she’s good and ready, and not a moment before-hand.

Fin (above) reluctantly let me take his photo.  Momma advised he wouldn’t get a cupcake until he did!  I’m not sure if that’s the best way for me to be introduced, but I’ll take it.

Fin has a Simian-like head and heart line.  This shows the great intensity he brings to his play-projects.

 Even though the shadows make it hard to see her hands (above), I had to post this picture of River because she is just too cute!

 Ok, Maverick (above) wasn’t into having his hands read today, but he’s thinking about it!  Even when he fell asleep in Momma’s arms, and we tried to open his hands, he preferred to keep his fingers nestled into the palms of his hands. 

Great shot of Wyatt’s left hand (above). His Thumb and neighboring Venus zone are sure plump.  The Thumb is all about doing and rearranging.  Venus is all about beauty and pleasure.  Combine the two and you’ve got a little-one wanting results in the fun department.

Project Snowflake

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

Jan. 31, 2010 – Project Snowflake ~ It’s official, Project Snowflake is now under way.  Fingerprints, like snowflakes, are unique. There are no two snowflakes alike.  My first kid-prints were taken in 2003 when I was taking the Hand Analysis Intensive Training.  Snowflake Riley was age 7 then.  Now she’s 13.  All of her prints, along with her sister (Drue) and brother’s (Logan), are on file.  I’ve collected other kid-prints over the years and done readings of kids hands for their parents.  The results have been profound and quite helpful to parents.  I’ve seen head lines break and re-attach.  I’ve seen deep lines of clairvoyance pale over the years.  I’ve watched the life challenges shower these kids and have been able to guide parents through  changes with potential antidotes for success through greater awareness.

Petit sent me the photographs of Talus’ hands when he was 5 days old.  Talus is my youngest snowflake.  More photos were taken when he was 3+ months old.  

Wil and Shanan brought Ruby to me two years ago when she was 5 months old to record her fingerprints and for her first hand printing.  I printed her hands again in Dec. 2009 when she was 2.5 years old. Snowflake Ruby is showing early signs of great independence.

Today, Brandy brought Bethany by to have her hands printed and her fingerprints recorded.  She’s my newest snowflake.

In Dec. 2009 I decided to do something special with all these prints and photographs, along with my desire to observe and analyze the hand prints and fingerprints of these amazing children. Hence, Project Snowflake was born.

Note:  Fingerprints patterns don’t change. Those unique glyphs form in the womb five months before birth. The lines in the hands DO change over time.  The Soul’s agenda is read from the fingerprints.  The personality traits are read from the lines and markings in the hands.  The personality supports the Soul’s agenda.  I don’t make predictions or tell fortunes. 

This is hand ‘ANALYSIS’.  It’s a science and art. I’m deciphering the hidden information as I see it in the moment.  Various etchings, and their combinations help me clarify the potential and the challenges to the owner of the hands.

What is Project Snowflake?  I’ll print selected children’s hands, with their parent’s permission, once a year or more over the next ten years – that’s until Dec. 2019.  At times of difficulties or positive changes I’ll print again, if possible.  I’ll share brief interpretations with the parents and in my newsletters, blog and website.

What is the mission of Project Snowflake? 

- Research

- Mentoring for children and teens

- Coaching for parents

- Promote hand analysis as an effective way to know more about the ‘inner self’

- Offer inspirational stories to kid-and-parent-clients

- Stay connected with youth through changes 

- Validate the life purpose and life challenges as decoded from the fingerprints

- Encourage everyone to know their lives are literally in their hands. 

Deep awareness and meaning can shine through during and after a hand reading.

Please join me and watch these Snowflakes. I’m totally excited to bring the art and science of hand and fingerprint analysis to the world in this fun and adventurous way. 

A special thanks to the parents for allowing me to take their snowflakes into my hands and to watch them glisten.
