‘THINK on THESE THINGS’ for May 14th

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

It takes such a little whiff of memory to carry us all the way back. Small things tucked here and there remind us of some place, something, some person who has played a special part in our lives.

We want to go forward, try new things, know new people, visit new places, yet how nice to slip on those comfortable old slippers of the familiar bygones and remember loving faces and happy times.

It is said that we should never return to places that have a sacred spot in our memories. Everything changes with time, so little remains recognizable to us. We begin to think that perhaps those hallowed places were not so wonderful as we remember.

But they were, for in their time and that place it was as it should have been, happy and meaningful. They may have changed, but so have we.

A little of every place and every person goes with us in the building of even happier times. We have not lost anyone or anything but it is the combination of all that we have lived and learned that builds our character and teaches us the way of life.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day May 14

Elder’s Meditation of the Day May 14

“Prayer is the best answer to all of the trials that face us, because without prayer, even if we succeed in accomplishing some great goal in the eyes of men, we have failed in our sacred responsibilities, and thus we have failed in what is truly important.”

–Thomas Yellowtail, CROW

What are our sacred responsibilities? One is to be of maximum service to the Creator, and two is to serve the people. In a way, it’s like the Great Spirit is the employer and we are the employees. We live each day, do what we do, accomplish our goals, face our difficulties, overcome them all to the Glory of the Creator. We do these things to make Him proud! Even if we work for a company, agency or tribe, they are nor really our employer; the Creator is our employer. Working for the Creator is better than working for a human being, because each night we can talk to the Creator and ask Him, “Well, how did I do today?” He answers back each night, “I’m proud of you, my child; sleep well, and in the morning I’ll give you a new set of growing experiences.”

Great Spirit, today, let me work for you. You will be my new boss.

May 14 – Daily Feast

May 14 – Daily Feast

How many times she called me to her side to share something beautiful – the glowing embers in a sunset, the call of a whippoorwill, or one of those rare moments when Venus draws near the new moon. How many times she held my hand to comfort me through hope and fear, birth and death, happiness and unhappiness. How many times she taught me that no one is ever alone. We are always in the presence of Father-God who loves us – no matter what might appear to frighten us. How many times she said, “You can do it!” and how many times she refrained from saying, “You’ll never make it.” And how many blessings I wish upon her – my mother!

~ I will come with my family and pitch my lodge in your camp, that others may see….you are under my protection. ~

The Daily Motivator for May 14 – Make life great today

Make life great today

Today is too valuable to waste. Tomorrow you’ll wish you had made the most of today, so go ahead and do that right now.

Your life is too unique and precious to spend it drifting aimlessly. Remind yourself of what’s important to you, and do something about it, now.

Yes, there are plenty of things that can give you reasons to be discouraged and disillusioned. However, you can always give yourself even more reasons to be purposeful and enthusiastically positive.

You have within you the miracle of life. Whatever else may or may not be happening for you, there are outstanding possibilities available to you.

For those possibilities to have any value, though, you must act on them. Now is the time to do that.

Go ahead, feel your awesome potential and then get yourself busy living up to it. Make life great today by what you do with it.

Palm Marks and Patterns

Palm Marks and Patterns

 

In addition to major lines, the palm contains lots of smaller lines and other markings. There may be tiny crisscrossed lines, loops, and other lovely little patterns. No matter how incidental these shapes and patterns may seem, your hands have carried all of these markings since about the third month of fetal development inside your mother’s womb.

A General Overview

First, take a look at the overall texture of the palm in order to get a suitable starting point for reading the ridges and patterns contained in the palm. If the ridges in your palm are smooth and soft to the touch, you likely have refined tastes and are the quiet and sensitive type. If your ridges are wider and deeper, creating a rougher texture, you are athletic, action-oriented, and sharper psychologically because of your positive, outgoing attitude.

While it’s possible for your hand to have no visible patterns, most hands have at least one type of pattern and a high percentage of hands have several.

Look for Shapes in the Patterns

Now that you have a good sense of the feel and texture of your palm, take a deeper look at the skin patterns on it. Do they form any particular shapes?

There are thirteen basic markings that can appear on the palm of the hand, and each has a special meaning:

  • Chains: Someone who is “bound” by worry.
  • Islands: Loss through difficulty or challenge.
  • Dots: Indication of a surprise or a shocking event.
  • Branches: Rising branches are a sign of good fortune; branches falling toward the wrist are a sign of potential failure.
  • Broken lines: A shift or change in life, or an inability to see things through.
  • Forks: Choices pertaining to whichever major line is closest (heart, head, or life).
  • Circles: Usually, circles predict great fame and fortune; however, you will rarely encounter them.
  • Triangles: Portend great psychic or spiritual abilities.
  • Squares: Ability to teach, motivate, or inspire others.
  • Crosses: Obstacles or blockages on the way; burdens that may hold you back from achieving your dreams.
  • Tassels: Not typically seen on the hand; can represent scattered energies or unmanifested ideas.
  • Grilles: Represent lots of starting and stopping with respect to life’s endeavors.
  • Stars: The most auspicious markings on the palm; people with stars usually achieve tremendous fame — or lasting notoriety.

 

Pay Attention to Loops

Loops are typically found on the webbing between fingers and on finger mounts (the puffy underside of the knuckles of your hand). Loops of vocation or career, found between the ring and the middle finger, show how dedicated you are to your career. If they are large and open, you are probably open to others’ input. If small and refined, you are likely an entrepreneurial spirit who prefers solitary work.

Loops of bravery or courage are found just above the joint area of the thumb, near the thumb webbing. If you have one of these, you are fearless in your life’s pursuits.

Check your hand for the “crowd factor.” If there are lots of lines and patterns crowded together, it means you have an active imagination and like to learn. Having fewer lines is a sign of a more evolved soul.

Loops of humor or good cheer occur between the index and middle finger and point to a healthy sense of humor that draws others to you, while a loop on the Luna mount (the outside part of the palm between the pinky and the wrist) shows a marked ability to communicate with animals and nature. For more on loops and how to identify them, see Chapter 7.

Shapes That Predict Creativity

If you have several skin ridge patterns that seem to flow into each other to form a triangular shape, that shape is your focal point for creative energy. If you have a “tri-radius” mark on your index finger mount, it typically means that you focus your creative energy on leadership; if it occurs near your third finger mount, you are much more intellectual.

Whorls (unusual circular skin patterns) are a good indication of future greatness in creative endeavors. If you are an artist, writer, or performer, check your palm for any unique markings such as a whorl of music (typically found on the Venus mount, which is the padded section near the thumb) or a whorl of Luna (on the Luna mount). These two whorls signal marked artistic intensity and talent, and are rare finds.

Inspecting the Palm Lines

Inspecting the Palm Lines

 

Once you’ve examined the general shape of the hand, take a look at the palm. The first things you should notice are the main lines. Lines basically come in four different varieties: deep, clear, faint, or broken.

Deep lines indicate a person who is full of life and who is certain or direct about their needs and desires. These people have absolutely no difficulty in attaining their goals in life — and they don’t let anyone or anything get in their way!

Clear, easy-to-read lines that are plain to see but not exceptionally deep typically belong to peace-loving, even-tempered people. These individuals are often the peacemakers in their families, and others look to them for their fair and objective insights.

People with faint lines often have lots of nagging health problems caused by years of worry or indecision. Often timid and reserved, these people would rather have others lead them in particular situations; they hate having to take action, especially for their own well-being — they prefer having someone else take care of them.

Broken lines indicate abrupt or traumatic changes in life. A broken line coming off the life line can mean a major shift in lifestyle or personal well-being. A broken line off the heart line may mean a dramatic change in relationship status, such as divorce or separation.

Long lines on the palm mean that you have well-developed interests and pursue them with a passion, while short lines generally mean that you have many different interests and can be intensely involved with each one — until the next opportunity presents itself.

Horizontal lines on the palm generally mean conflict or separation, while vertical lines point to a tendency toward people pleasing. Double lines mean that you have spiritual guidance in the form of an ancestral spirit, spirit guide, or angel — and this guidance pertains to the area of your life that the double lines are closest to (either heart, head, or life line).

While not completely conclusive until the rest of the palm reading has been complete, palm lines can tell you a lot about the basis or foundation of your life.

Your Hand’s Shape

Your Hand’s Shape

The general shape of your hand tells a palm reader a lot about your general character. The easiest way to get a quick read on someone is to look at the shape his or her hands form — and to correlate each shape with a particular personality type. In palmistry, there are four basic shapes and one hybrid or mixed shape.

Each type of hand represents one of four elements that the ancients believed composed all matter of our world: Conical hands are said to be “air” hands; pointed hands are “water” hands; spatulate hands are “fire” hands; and square hands are “earth” hands.

The Conical or Artistic Hand

Conical hands are round, sensual, and feminine in appearance. People with these hand shapes typically have a deep appreciation for the arts or, if the hands feature lots of curved lines, are artists or creators themselves.

Quiet, sensitive, and imaginative, they are nonviolent people who seek solace through music, art, literature, and love. The conical hand is called the air hand, since this element most closely captures the free spirit of the type.

 

The Pointed or Psychic Hand

Long, delicate, and tapered fingers that characterize the pointed hand lead palmists to conclude that the fingers point to spiritual truths. This is why the pointed hand is always referred to as the psychic hand — and, in truth, the vast majority of those who have pointed hands do have psychic or intuitive ability.

If your hands are pointed and you don’t think you are the least bit psychic, it could mean that you have the power but have chosen not to develop it at this point in your life. Whether or not you become a psychic practitioner in the future, your intuition and creative energy are already powerful, and you tend to have a tremendous amount of compassion or empathy for others. Pointed hands are often called water hands because of their deep sensitivity and intensity.

The Spatulate or Action-Oriented Hand

If your hand is narrow at the wrists, but wider toward the fingertips, you have what is called the spatulate hand. You are action-oriented and love unusual adventures; it’s not unlike you to pack your bags and head to India for a spell, and then go on a skiing trip to Colorado the next month.

An explorer of people, places, and ideas, you are daring, energetic, and fearless, often challenging the ideas or positions of others who aren’t as open-minded as you. Your energy is boundless; you tend to leave others breathless, unable to catch up with you. Spatulate hands are often called fire hands, since that element most closely captures the personality traits of vitality and dynamism.

The Square or Practical Hand

A square hand appears to form a perfect square from the finger bases to the wrists. People with square hands are smooth, easygoing types who are very practical in nature and have a realistic outlook on life. They are rooted in their daily lives, and while they are friendly and outgoing, they also have a tendency to evaluate every situation as black or white, with very little left to interpretation. Still, because they are so sensible and level-headed, family and friends regularly seek them out to help mediate or settle volatile situations.

Square-handed people are most often drawn to careers that require hard work and persistence, since they excel in tackling large and difficult projects. Because they are practical and down-to-earth, these people are said to have “earth” hands. With the square-handed, what you see is what you get!

The Mixed Hand

Although it’s quite a rarity, every once in a while you’ll see a hand that has elements of two or more of the five shapes and types. Palmists call these hands mixed. For an accurate reading of a mixed hand, you’ll need to look for the dominant feature of the hand.

For instance, if you see that the palm itself is basically square but the fingers are long, it could mean that the person seems by outward appearance to be dreamy and intuitive, but that inwardly he is actually strong, practical, and even-minded. If all seems balanced in the hand, your mixed-hand person is completely versatile and has a steady, go-with-the-flow kind of attitude. Both temperaments have their positive and negative sides, but there is much to learn from the mixed-hand balanced individual.

Examining the Hand Spread

Examining the Hand Spread

 

The spread of the hand tells you how you are perceived by others. When you turn your hands around so that the palms face outward, look closely at the spread of your fingers. Very close fingers connote a person who is very traditional and overly sensitive; fingers held further apart represent an unconventional, nontraditional thinker.

And what about the other fingers and their positioning on the hand? If all of your fingers lean toward the palm, you are possessive, reserved, and possibly even stingy. If they point outward toward the sky, you can be overly permissive and give until it hurts. A wider-than-usual gap between the thumb and first finger also connotes extreme generosity.

Look at your fourth (little) finger as it relates to your hand. Is it farther apart than the other fingers? Usually, a little finger that points outward and is spaced significantly apart from the third finger means that you have a quick temper and are not to be reckoned with when upset! If your index finger seems to be spaced farther apart from the other fingers on your hand, you have strong leadership potential and can be a trendsetter.

 *Note – Hands that are very hairy on top can affirm masculinity in a man; a man whose hands are soft and free of hair often turn out to be meek and introverted. Women with more hair on their hands tend to be highly assertive and even aggressive at times, whereas women with smooth, hairless hands are of delicate constitution.

Overall Appearance of the Hand

Overall Appearance

 

Before taking a deeper look into the lines on the hand, you should always begin with an overall assessment of the hand itself. Hands come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes; to get a clear picture of the personality type you’re dealing with, it’s important to start with a good reading of the more general aspects of the hand’s outward appearance.

Here are the main aspects of the hand you’ll want to examine closely as you begin your palm reading:

  • Size. In general, people with small hands tend to act quickly and perhaps impulsively; those with very small hands are generally free, independent-minded thinkers. On the other hand, those with larger hands tend to be more methodical and thoughtful about their big decisions in life. People with average hands are easygoing — they react according to each situation and its own unique circumstances and are not as predictable.

 

You can learn a lot about a person just from a handshake. Sweaty palms indicate nervous tendencies; patches of blotchy skin signal circulatory problems. Some of these things are self-evident — in other words, you don’t need to be a psychic to know that someone with sweaty palms is a nervous type.

  • Color or consistency. Color represents life or vitality. If the palms are pale — white, gray, or even bluish — there are definitely health challenges (most likely circulatory in nature); red hands mean you are quick to anger; yellow, jaundiced hands mean you have a pessimistic outlook; and pink hands mean you are well-balanced and have a healthy outlook.
  • Thickness. Tilt the hand sideways and look at its width. Is it thin or thick? Thick hands belong to easygoing, noncompetitive people; thin hands belong to goal-oriented, driven, or ambitious people who are on a specific mission in life.
  • Texture. Fine, soft skin indicates refined tastes and usually belongs to the culturally or artistically inclined. Firm skin shows a healthy blend of physical and intellectual pursuits. Coarse, rough, or scaly skin indicates a more adventuresome, outdoorsy type for whom gloves (and personal well-being) are an afterthought.
  • Movement. How does the hand move? Does it seem flexible? If it is, the person is also likely to be flexible in his or her thinking and general demeanor. A general rule of palmistry is that the stiffer the hand, the stiffer the demeanor. Have you ever noticed a person with hands so stiff they almost seem mechanical? People with hands this stiff typically have mental or emotional difficulties, or have a hard time trusting others.

Take notes about each of these items. As you get deeper into the lines, ridges, and mounts of the hand, you’ll want to look back at your initial assessment to see how developed it’s become.

A Rewarding Inner Journey

A Rewarding Inner Journey

Although of course you may want to visit a professional palm reader, you can also do palm reading yourself, whether you read your own hands or the hands of others. Palm reading can be a richly rewarding experience along your path to in-depth personal understanding. Once you know what your personal challenges and opportunities are, you can better improve upon or capitalize on them to create a happier and more meaningful life. Reading the palms of others around you can greatly improve your communication. For instance, you can modify the way you communicate with an individual based on what you can guess about their personality, avoiding personality clashes before they become an issue.

 

If I do a reading for myself, how accurate would it be?

Once you’ve learned everything you can about palmistry, you can quickly and easily do a self-reading. However, an in-depth reading does require the ability to separate your wishes from the reality of your hand. One way of creating some distance is to use an inkpad or photocopier to create prints of your hand, then doing a reading from the copy.

Learning the ways of ancient and modern palmistry can open up a whole new way of seeing the world. It can help you achieve the true potential you were born with in this life while helping others to improve their lives by seeing themselves as they really are.

You don’t have to be a psychic medium to become a palmist — all you need is a wide-open mind and the willingness to be honest with yourself and others. Don’t be afraid to look at the challenges realistically rather than tell yourself or others only the things you or they would most like to hear. Remember, the future is all about potential and choice, so there’s nothing to be afraid of!

Now that you know you can effectively read your palms for yourself, why not set aside a quiet, meditative space for your first personal reading — or buddy up with a friend or family member to read each other’s palms? If you feel ready to try a reading of your own, you’re ready to move on.
