So, W.T.F. is Scientific Hand Analysis?
"That's like palm reading, right?"
Ummm...only kind of.
I know what you're thinking, especially if you've never studied Scientific Hand Analysis, you may be thinking about Palmistry. Woo-woo culture, psychics and "come look into my crystal ball," may all be popping into mind right about now. This is different, so put everything you think you may know aside for just a moment; this won't take long. Sure, the origins of what we all know of palm reading to be seem hokey and...general. However, Scientific Hand Analysis is based in psychology and human design with some cool real world application.
How was the system created? A man named Richard Unger studied over 50,000 hand prints of participants, studying the link between neural pathways in the brain and their relation to prints in the palms and fingerprints.
Is it predictive? No.
Is it repeatable? Yes.
Every person who is certified in Scientific Hand Analysis will produce an analysis for a client all based on the same method.
Current studies in epigenetics, gene therapy, myofascial and facial musculature development already show that our habits create who we are. Our emotions, beliefs and feelings cause repeated muscle tension and release, influencing how we look after time; it affects our skin, muscle tissue, collagen and bone. Examples are crows feet, facial softness, tight jawlines, frown lines and creases. This is how we consciously or even subconsciously know how people's personalities will be before we meet them, we are reading their habitual conditioning. Every time we think, feel, or react we are conditioning ourselves on a cellular level.
The same conditioning happens with our bodies, through our posture, the bend in our fingers, the crookedness of our knees, what we put into our bodies and how our bodies react. By looking at how we are in the present moment physically, we can get a good picture of what habits are working and which ones are not. The difference is, some of our design is influenced prior to our birth; it's in our DNA and developed from hormones and external influences that manifest in utero.
Fingerprints are developed 14-16 weeks along in our development. They are some of the first things to disappear from the body's surface postmortem, but can be retrieved from deep within the skin's layers for an indefinite amount of time, being one of the last things to fully disintegrate. Our hand and fingerprints are part of our design. No two people have the same fingerprints (as in all of them, since we have discovered even duplicates here); even identical twins, those sharing the same environment in utero have different prints, even if everything else is the same. Anyone who knows a set of twins will tell you that even though they look alike, they have vastly different personalities. Accounting for these differences in personality lies in distinct neural pathways in the prefrontal cortex. The FBI and CIA are already using this technology to profile criminals and to locate owners of prints they do not have in their database. If you can use the prints in the hand as a map of the neural pathways, you can find behaviors that make the criminal. You can find the criminal.
How can this help you? You can discover more about your design, your genetic inheritance by the patterns in your prints.
So, what did Richard Unger study in his analytical trials?
Essentially, he expounded on an already centuries old system, which is a form of palmistry which dates back 10,000 years or more. Palmistry was originally predictive in nature, but Richard Unger's take was not to make predictions, but to look at a person's design. In these systems, the patterns found in the prints are already patterns found repeating in nature that depict different energies, which come from the four elements present in the environment and present within the human body: all carbon and water combinations. Earth, Air, Fire and Water. He took the prints and ranked them based on the difficulty of print formation. The highest ranking had to do with a person's life purpose, which showed up in the energy of the design, where the most energy was used. The lowest ranking prints, or those most easily formed point to the life lesson, or a person's blind spot in their design. By counting the number of times that like energy prints appeared in a persons hands and fingers determined the energy of what they are here to learn, or their life schools, also called spiritual boot camp. The life schools are where a person will receive the most conditioning. The life lesson is tantamount to a person's PhD in the school of life.
Why is this system a popular method for self-actualization?
The system seems to produce uncanny resonance with those being analyzed; enough to believe that there is something worthwhile about the information being interpreted from one's prints. It is not divination, a predicting of the future, but a study of cognitive processes and human design. I had my own analysis done in 2014 and while the life purpose part was so spot on it was amazing, the life lesson, or my blindspot was confusing. But I figured that's why they call it your blindspot. Later, I had one of those lightening bolt moments where it all finally clicked in an all too serendipitous moment. It truly was a blindspot for me. I found this process to be really fascinating. So, if you ask me, it's worth a try.
