Palmistry Mounts

Ever grateful are we humans with hands.  Fingers, thumbs and palms for holding, touching and feeling people and things.  The duty of the hand is managed by the impulses in the brain.  Head itches, fingers scratch.  Phone rings, hands grasp.

From the Hand Analysts eyes, the hands reflect the preferences and capabilities of the owner of the hands.  Like the cardiologist reads the heart waves, the dentist reads the gums in the mouth and the baby reads fear on her mother’s face, palmists read the hands and decipher the owners likes and dislikes.

Take a look at your open palm at eye level, with fingers extended.  Notice the mountains erupting from the palm. They form pads on the hands. In Palmistry, these are known as Mounts. The highest mountains or Mounts tell me about your preferred behaviors and interests.  For example, if you have a full and protruding Jupiter Mount (Mount under the index finger on the top of the palm – see hand map) you will be inclined to lead, influence, and wield some level of power.  You may have people ‘following’ you because of the successful use of your trigger finger.  On a bad day you may become tyrannical and dictatorial.

Hand Mounts

The hand map shows the general areas for the Mounts and their very basic associated descriptions.  With a full Moon Mount you are imaginative, dreamy, mystical and intuitive.  These are all characteristics that support being creative; maybe even a story teller or fictional writer.

Flat Mounts on the palm are normal.  Sunken Mounts tells me you might feel limited in that particular aspect of your character.  For example, a sunken Moon Mount would indicate that mysticism, imagination and day dreaming may not be of interest to you at this time.  The condition of the Mounts can change over time as your inclinations change over time.

Blisters, cuts, bruises and warts point out life occurrences depending on the zone of the hand they are located.  At the simplest level you can say, “I feel cut off from my imagination right now” when there is a cut across the Moon Mount.  As with life, there are deeper meanings which support our personal development.

Feel free to email me at kay@handfactor.com if you have a question.  I’m available for 30, 60 and 90 minute hand readings in person or over the phone.  We’ll look at what the Mounts on your Palms have to say about you.  Your Soul’ code will also be deciphered from your fingerprints.  This is an opportunity for deeper awareness and clarity on your life journey.

The Rational Romantic

Since we transmit our emotions when interacting with others, I interpret the heart line to identify the relationship requirements system of the owner of the hand. Some people find it favorable to have the ability to understand, clarify and articulate how they like to be treated in relationship. Also, knowing the preferences of others and working to meet their needs is essential for maintaining loving relationships.

The Rational Romantic

Non-negotiable need: Meaning

 True Love: Conversation

Shows love through: Consideration

 Gift: Analyzing emotions

 RationalRomantic Heart Line

 The Rational Romantic heart line is overlaid with fuchsia ink (above).  It traverses the upper palm and ends beneath the index (Jupiter) finger, but farther down into the palm than the Big Heart (last issue). 

The Rational Romantic is also ‘other’ oriented.  She (or he) is considerate, thought-full, analytical and reasoning with emotions. He or she wants to think through all the possibilities of feelings and then discuss them. She likes to fulfill your requests. To her fighting is painful.   

If you live with a Rational Romantic, one of the most beneficial things you can do is 1) converse with her and 2) allow her think, think, think about how she feels, feels, feels.  To others this may appear to be ‘overprocessing’.  It’s her natural style to ‘think-through.’  Appreciate her for acting upon your wishes – as a result of her ‘processing’. 

It may be helpful to affectionately remind her to consider her own passions and to pursue them besides yours.  A balanced Romantic continues to honor others’ requests and is also comfortable voicing her own needs, wants and even demands. 

One of my life-long male friends has this heart line of reasoning in romance. He is an involved conversationalist with the crowd and his wife in the group. He can become verbally animated on emotional topics. At times I hear him clarifying what he ‘meant’ to say so that he’s understood correctly.  He’ll notice how his words affect the feelings of his wife and consider the effects. He regularly writes adoring words on cards to show his love for her. 

Cheers to living your emotional style – naturally.

3 Steps for Improvement

Affirmations – 3 Steps for Improvement (Part 2 of 4)

By Kay Packard 

Life can only get better when we look at what we affirm everyday. In part one of this four part series the following key points were made:

1) You constantly and consistently give tremendous power to what you’re thinking and speaking whether positive or negative

2)  It’s unwise to underestimate the power of your imagination

3)  Self sabotage adds an interesting twist

4) You give life to what you accept as true

For a moment, let’s look at the grand saboteur. The saboteur is the part of us that deliberately destroys our dreams by undermining our thought system.  Self sabotage is the number one impediment to success.

To realize your hopes, desires and aspirations consider these 3 steps:

redcarpetStep 1.  IDENTIFY the core issue holding you back.  One effective way to do this is by asking yourself, “What is the root cause that is preventing me from reaching my goal?”  If an immediate answer does not come to you – guess.  Another approach is to ask, “I feel this way because…”  When you get an answer ask yourself again, “and I feel this way because…..”  At some point ask yourself, “I hold on to this idea because?”  Perhaps you were criticized, shamed or embarrassed in the past.  Perhaps at some point you felt belittled when you shared a dream or even achieved a goal.  When praise and reward is expected and the contrary is received emotional trauma can develop.

Uncovering the thought-cause is crucial to relieve the negative affects stock-piled in memory.

Step 2. ELIMINATE or dissolve that limiting thought or belief. When the core issue is uncovered simply ask, “Is this still true?”  Often times we realize the belief is no longer true… like Santa Claus.  By looking at the limiting thought or out-dated belief from three or five different angles it may likely be discarded.  What would happen if you could accept everything just as it is right now?

Step 3  REINFORCE your new way of thinking – Let’s get started. Take out a note card and a pen.  In a quiet place, think up and write down three (or more) of your own personalized affirmations that stimulates the heart of your being.   Use the present tense, as though you are experiencing it now, for example, “I am worthy” or “I live in absolute abundance.”  Keep the note card with you or post it on your mirror so that you constantly reinforce your new and improved thinking.

Existing affirmations show up in conversations and usually serve to keep us where we are.  Listen and observe the words you use. 

IMG_1262At a llama ranch, where I regularly walk, there is a yellow caution sign that says “Spit Happens.”  You know, if you get too close to those hairy creatures, they just may leave an uninvited slime on you.  We have a way of spewing too. When you catch yourself saying something to others or yourself that doesn’t lift you up and you want to retract it, you have a number of options. 

The following suggestions came from my workshop participants to recall misdirected words and thoughts:

Erase, erase
Picture a large eraser doing its job
Erase (the negative) and replace (with a positive)
Cancel, cancel
Wipe it off (as in black board)
Use the Delete key
Press the Control-alt-delete and ‘end task’
Visualize scissors cutting out the words
Scratch that
Flush it
Use the Mr Clean Magic eraser
Oops, that didn’t come out right
Stop the CD player (or tape player) and throw away the ‘recording’
Don’t take it too seriously
Forgive yourself

You don’t have to be a POW, prisoner of words.  Take charge now.  Identify, eliminate and reinforce for optimal living. 

Watch for part 3 of this 4 part series.  Included in the next part is a focus on the partner, parent and environmental factors.
